Other Remote Start Features
Low Battery/Low Temp Automatic Starting
This feature will automatically start the engine if the vehicle battery drops below 11
volts or the interior temperature drop to 15 (or 32) degrees fahrenheit. You must activate these features each time you park your car to use them. They can be activated
one of two ways:
Method 1 - Valet Switch
• Turn the ignition switch “on”, then “off” (engine not running), and within 7 seconds
press the valet switch twice. If there is a 2 second delay without additional valet button presses, the horn will honk 3 times activating low voltage start mode.
• To activate low temp starting, enter low voltage start mode as described above
but, before the horn honks, press the valet switch 1 time (15 degrees) or 2 times (32
degrees) within 5 seconds. The horn will honk to confirm your selection.
Method 2 - With The Controller (Low Volt + Low Temp - 15 Degrees Only)
• Within 5 seconds of pressing LOCK, press the START button. You will get one chirp
and the 2-way controller will alternate between “ARM” and “RS AUTO”.
NOTE: When low temp start mode is activated, low voltage start is also activated.
These features will operate once every two hours until the ignition key is
7
turned “ON”.
Other Remote Start Features (cont’d)
Turbo Timer Feature
It is typically recommended that vehicles equipped with turbocharged engines allow
the engine to idle after driving to cool the turbocharger. When this Installer Programmable Feature #4 is enabled, the system will automatically keep the engine running
as follows:
• With the engine running, hold the brake pedal and engage the parking brake. When the brake pedal is released, the system will keep the engine running for
the programmed time (1, 2, or 3 minutes), and then automatically turn it off.
• The system may be locked while the engine is running. Turbo Timer can be
prevented from engaging, or “bypassed” if desired, by turning the engine off before
engaging the parking brake, or if it’s already engaged, step on the brake pedal to turn
the engine off.
Pit-Stop Feature
This feature allows you to leave your engine running for making quick errands. To
use this feature, have the engine running normally from the ignition switch and your
foot off the brake pedal. Press the Valet Switch twice; the parking lights will flash and
the horn chirps 5 times. Turn the key off and the engine will remain running for the
programmed run time.
Manual Transmission Starting
Remote starting with a manual transmission requires a different installation method
and installer feature #5 must be turned on. Also, a setup procedure that ensures the
transmission was left in neutral must be performed each time you leave your vehicle
and intend to use remote start later. Perform these steps:
1) With the engine running, hold the brake pedal, apply the parking brake, then
release the brake pedal.
2) Use the transmitter as if you were activating remote start (default: press START
twice). The green status light will start to flash slow.
3) Turn off the ignition key and exit the vehicle.
4) Press LOCK on the transmitter. The engine will shut down (unless turbo timer is
on) and the status light will flash green every 2 seconds to indicate it is ready to be
remote started.
NOTE: Manual transmission starting is canceled if you enter the vehicle after
performing the setup procedure.
Security System Features
Last Door Arming
This system can be configured to arm automatically when all the vehicle’s doors
are closed (see user feature #2). When this feature is utilized, the siren/horn will chirp
once when all of the doors are closed. At that point, it will start a 30 second countdown (indicated by a fast flashing status light). After 30 seconds, the system will arm
(and lock the doors if configured to do so). During the 30 second arming delay, if a
point of entry is opened, the countdown will pause until all entry points are closed
again. Turning ON the ignition key will cancel the last door arming sequence until the
key is turned off and the doors are all closed once again.
8
Security System Features (cont’d)
Automatic Rearming
This automatically rearms the alarm if the system is disarmed from the remote.
(see user feature #3). When disarmed by remote, the system will start a 90 second
countdown (fast flashing status light) to arm the system. This is useful if the controller
may accidentally disarms the system when it’s kept in a purse or pocket where other
items could potentially press the buttons. ENHANCED AUTO REARM allows you to
cancel the countdown by pressing UNLOCK a second time within 5 seconds of the
first press to disarm the alarm.
Pre-Warn Detection
This system’s impact sensor is designed, in addition to detecting a full impact, will
warn away potential violators when it detects a light impact to the vehicle. The system
will respond by chirping the siren/horn 3 times and locking the doors. This is very useful when an intruder attempts to unlock the door with “slim jim” types of devices.
When The System Triggers
If the system were to be compromised while armed, it will trigger sounding the
siren/horn and flashing the parking lights for 30 seconds (programmable). At this point
you will also be notified on the controller as to which zone is violated (if in range of the
system). When disarming the system after a trigger event, the siren/horn will chirp 4
times and the parking lights will flash 4 times instead of the standard 2 times.
LOCK ON TRIGGER: If a door is opened when the system is triggered, it will wait
until the door is closed again, then lock the doors. This patented feature is useful to
further deny a thief of further access to the vehicle.
STORM SAFE MODE: When the system is triggered, pressing the “UNLOCK” button
will stop the alarm from sounding but will leave the doors locked. This function is useful if you have a false triggering situation due to violent weather.
ZONE VIOLATION RECALL: The system is capable of telling you which zones were
triggered last. The system’s status light will flash to indicate which zone was triggered.
This occurs during the alarm cycle AND after disarming. The system will store the last
triggered zone until the vehicle’s ignition key is turned on. See “The Status Light” section of this manual for further explanation of this feature.
NUISANCE PREVENTION: If the system prewarns 5 times within 15 minutes, it will
bypass the zone for the remainder of the 15 minutes before rearming the pre-warn
zone. Additionally, if a full trigger zone is left open, the system will trigger a total of 3
times before bypassing the zone. Once the zone is closed again, it will re-arm that
zone.
Using The Valet Switch
Emergency Override
If you were to lose or break your controller, you’d need to perform an emergency
override to disarm the system and use your vehicle. To do so, use the following steps:
STEP 1 - Enter the vehicle (the alarm should sound)
STEP 2 - Turn the ignition key to the “ON” position
STEP 3 - Press the valet switch (located in the window-mount antenna) once
NOTE: Enter your SecureCode at this time if programmed via user feature #1
STEP 4 - Turn the ignition “OFF”.

Using The Valet Switch (cont’d)
Valet Modes
ALARM VALET MODE, while active, completely disables all security functions.
Keyless entry and remote start are still operable. To enter valet mode, perform the
following steps:
STEP 1 - Disarm the system either with the controller or by performing an emergency
override (make sure not to hold the brake pedal).
STEP 2 - Press and hold the valet switch (located in the window-mount antenna)
for 2 seconds. The system will chirp once and the RED status light will turn on. The
controller will reflect that the system is in alarm valet mode.
REMOTE START VALET MODE, while active, disables remote start. Keyless entry
and alarm functions are still operable. To enter remote start valet mode, perform the
following steps:
STEP 1 - Disarm the system either with the controller or by performing an emergency
override and hold the brake pedal.
STEP 2 - Press and hold the valet switch (located in the window-mount antenna) for
2 seconds. The system will chirp once and the GREEN status light will turn on. The
controller will not reflect remote start valet mode.
FULL VALET MODE combines both alarm & remote start valet modes. To activated full valet mode, follow these steps:
STEP 1 - Enter remote start valet. You will hear a chirp.
STEP 2 - Release the brake pedal but continue holding the valet switch. After 2 seconds, you will hear a second chirp.
STEP 3 - Immediately release the valet switch. The status light will alternate between
RED and GREEN every second.
EXITING VALET MODES is as simple as just pressing and releasing the valet
switch once. The status light will turn off. This procedure is the same for all forms of
valet mode.
SecureCode
SecureCode allows you to customize the number of valet presses required to perform an emergency override. This is an extra layer of security that prevents anyone
from overriding the alarm even if they have a key to the vehicle. SecureCode has 2
stages with the first requiring 1-9 button valet presses and the second requiring 0-9
valet button presses. This gives you 99 possible combinations. To program a custom
SecureCode, please refer to user feature #1.
To perform an emergency override with SecureCode, use the following steps:
STEP 1 - With the system armed, enter the vehicle (the alarm will activate).
STEP 2 - Turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position.
STEP 3 - Within 5 seconds of step 2, press the valet switch to enter the first digit of
your programmed code.
STEP 4 - After a few seconds, the siren will stop sounding and chirp once (confirming
stage 1). The siren will then continue sounding.
STEP 5 - Now, within 5 seconds of step 4, press the valet switch to enter the second
digit of your code. If the code is correct, the alarm will disarm.
If the code is entered incorrectly, you must turn the ignition key OFF, then back ON
to try again. Additionally, if 2 failed attempts are made, the alarm will ignore any
10 further attempts for 2 minutes.
The Status Light
The status lights, located in the window-mount antenna, provide a visual indication
of the system’s status via GREEN (remote start status) and RED (alarm status) lights.
SECURITY SYSTEM STATUS (RED LIGHT):
OFF: The alarm is disarmed and not performing any automatic functions.
ON CONSTANT: The alarm is in valet mode.
FLASHING SLOW: The alarm is armed and monitoring all entry points.
FLASHING FAST: One of the automatic arming features is in progress.
AUTOMATIC TRANSMITTER VERIFICATION (RED LIGHT):
Every time you turn on the ignition key, the status light will flash a number of times
equal to the number of controllers/transmitters programmed to the system. This
unique security feature protects you from a potential thief (valet attendant, mechanic,
installer, etc.) from adding their own transmitter without your knowledge and accessing your vehicle and it’s contents at a later time (the perfect crime!).
ZONE VIOLATION RECALL:
If the security system is triggered, upon disarming, the RED status lights will flash
a number of times to indicate exactly which zone(s), has been violated. It will store
the last 2 violated circuits and continually repeat the flash pattern until the system is
disarmed and the vehicle’s ignition key is turned ON.

FLASHING SLOW: The engine was started successfully and is running.
FLASHING FAST: The remote start sequence has begun and is in process of starting
the vehicle’s engine.
REMOTE START DIAGNOSTICS (GREEN LIGHT):
The remote start system can also indicate which zone caused the last remote
start cycle was ended. To see this indicator, place the system into alarm valet mode.
Immediately after the chirp, the GREEN status light will flash to indicate what caused
remote start to end.
1 FLASH: Run time expired.
2 FLASHES: Brake pedal was pressed.

Anti-Carjacking Protection
The system is equipped with two separate Anti-Carjacking protection features (ignition, open door, or both). All are programmable, and must be turned on to operate.
Once activated, the user has 53 seconds to cancel the Anti-Carjacking protection
process (described below). If Anti-Carjacking is not cancelled, 53 seconds after being
activated the siren will begin to chirp for 7 seconds to alert the user that the system
is about to enter into an alarm condition. The Valet Switch may still be pressed once
during this period to cancel the Anti-Carjacking process.
If the Anti-Carjacking process is not cancelled before the 60 second countdown
expires, the system will enter an alarm condition, sounding the siren and flashing the
parking lights. 30 seconds after this occurs, or should the ignition be turned off in the
meantime, the stater interrupt will engage. Once the system enters the alarm condition, it will not respond to the transmitter, nor will the system reset automatically after
60 seconds, and it can only be disengaged by:
Step 1 Turning the vehicle’s ignition off.
Step 2 Turning the ignition back on.
Step 3 Within 5 seconds, perform an Emergency Override using the Valet Switch. If
the SecureCode has been customized, the correct number of Valet Switch presses
must be made.
The different types of Anti-Carjacking protection are:
Ignition Activated Anti-Carjacking activates every time the vehicle’s ignition is
turned on. The Valet Switch must be pressed within 60 seconds of activating to cancel Anti-Carjacking. This is User Programmable Feature #15.
Door Anti-Carjacking activates when a door is opened after the vehicle is started
and the engine is running. The Valet Switch must be pressed within 60 seconds after
activation to cancel Anti-Carjacking. This is User Programmable Feature #15.

Programming Controllers/Transmitters
Standard Programming: Using this method to program additional or replacement transmitters does not turn on or otherwise affect the Unauthorized Transmitter
Alert (UTA) feature. Before you begin, have all transmitters which are to operate the
system at hand and make sure the correct vehicle profile (see page 12) is selected on
the controller(s).
Step 1Then, turn the ignition “on”.
Step 2Within 5 seconds of Step 1, press the Valet Switch 5 times. The siren/horn will
briefly sound, confirming that the system is ready to learn a transmitter code.
Step 3Press the “lock” button on each transmitter one at a time. The system will
chirp the siren/horn once to confirm that each was learned. If a code is not received
within 10 seconds of Step 2, the learning process will automatically exit.
If the Unauthorized Transmitter Alert feature is on, programming a transmitter to the
system will activate the “UTA” warning and the extended Status Light indication. For
the next 48 hours, the siren/horn will sound a brief series of chirps every time the
vehicle’s ignition key is turned on.
Special Programming procedure to turn on the UTA feature: Using this method
to program transmitters or optional controllers, and to turn on the Unauthorized Transmitter Alert feature.
Follow the same steps as the Standard Programming, but on any transmitter/controller being programmed instead of pressing the “lock” button, press the “lock” and
the “unlock” buttons together. This action turns on the Unauthorized Transmitter
Alert feature and at the same time programs the transmitter or controller to operate
the system.
Once the Unauthorized Transmitter Alert feature is turned on, the warning will
sound for 48 hours after any transmitter programming, including the programming
session which was used to turn it on. This feature can only be turned off again by
sending the system back to Omega for a reset.
Programming Features
Step 1 Turn the ignition key “ON”, then “OFF”
Step 2 Within 5 seconds of step 1, press the valet switch 5 times to access user
features (10 times to access installer features).

User Programmable Features
Feature #1 - SecureCode
DEFAULT - 1 Press
SecureCode is a unique patented feature which allows you to custom select the number of Valet Switch presses in two stages, instead of a single “1 press”, which would
be required in order to perform an Emergency Override. If any of the three anti-carjacking features are utilized, a customized SecureCode would also be required to turn
it off once it is fully activated. The SecureCode operation is described on page 10.
To custom program a new SecureCode:
Step 1Follow Steps 1 to 4 in the previous “Programming Features” section to access
“feature #1”.
Step 2Within 10 seconds slowly press and release the controller or transmitter’s
“arm/lock” button the number of times equal to the desired SecureCode for stage 1,
allow the system to respond to each controller/transmitter button press with a siren
chirp before pressing the button again. A few seconds after the final button press, the
system will chirp the horn/siren confirming the total number for stage 1.
Step 3Configure stage 2 of the SecureCode by pressing and releasing the “disarm/
unlock” button the number of times desired for the stage 2. The system will confirm
as it did for stage 1.

Installer Programmable Features
This group of Installer Programmable Features are all accessed as a group in the second level of
features’ programming. These features have a direct affect upon the system’s operations related
to the installation and vehicle type AND SHOULD ONLY BE CHANGED BY THE INSTALLER!!!
Feature #1 - Doorlocking Functions
0.8 Second Outputs (press “lock” button to program) - DEFAULT
3 Second Outputs (press “unlock” button to program)
Double Pulse Unlock Output (press “trunk” button to program)
Total Closure Lock Output (press “start” button to program)
This single feature gives the installer several needed options, to match the system’s doorlocking
outputs to suite different vehicle requirements. The total closure setting provides a 28 second lock
pulse and a 0.8 second unlock pulse.
Feature #2 - Light Relay Functions
Dome Light Output (press “lock” button to program) - DEFAULT
Door Lock (press “unlock” button to program)
Ignition Output (press “trunk” button to program)
Accessory Output (press “start” button to program)
The system has two built-in relays, which can be programmed to perform several different functions. The primary function of this relay, is to operate the vehicle’s dome, or interior lighting as
part of the system’s operations. Optionally, if desired or needed, this relay can be programmed to
be a door lock relay, or as medium-capacity ignition or accessory outputs (10A max), if needed for
remote starting use.
19
Installer Programmable Features (cont’d)
Feature #3 - Horn Relay Functions
Horn Output (press “lock” button to program) - DEFAULT
Door Unlock (press “unlock” button to program)
Trunk Release (press “trunk” button to program)
Pulse After Start (press “start” button to program)
The primary function of this second relay, is to operate the vehicle’s existing horn; either in
conjunction with the electronic siren, or in place of the siren. Using both the siren and the horn
creates an extremely effective security system. Optionally, if desired or needed, this relay can be
programmed as a door unlock, trunk release, or pulse after start relay.
Feature #4 - Turbo Timer
Off (press “lock” button to program) - DEFAULT
Run 1 Minute (press “unlock” button to program)
Run 2 Minutes (press “trunk” button to program)
Run 3 Minutes (press “start” button to program)
This feature, the operation of which is described on page 9, when turned on
configures the system to automatically keep the engine running briefly after it is turned off. This
operation is designed specifically for vehicles having turbocharged engines (the user may temporarily bypass the feature if desired). This feature should only be programmed by the installer,
and the operation of this feature depends on the correct connection of the safety wire to the
vehicle’s parking brake.
Feature #5 - Manual Transmission Mode
Off
(press “unlock” button to program) - DEFAULT
On
(press “lock” button to program)
This feature changes the parameters of the system’s remote start operation to be suitable for
manual transmission-equipped vehicles via a “setup” procedure which must be followed upon exiting the vehicle to ensure the transmission is in neutral.
Feature #6 - Engine Detection Method
Tachless Hi
(press “lock” button to program) - DEFAULT
Tachless Lo
(press “unlock” button to program)
Tach Wire
(press “trunk” button to program)
Data Tach
(press “start” button to program)
Crank Only
(press “lock” & “unlock” to program)
This feature selects the method in which the remote start monitors the engine’s running condition
in remote start mode.
“Tachless Hi” sensitivity mode uses a preset crank time (see installer feature #7) and monitors
the vehicle’s voltage level to determine if the engine is running. This setting looks for a voltage
increase of 0.3v after cranking.
“Tachless Lo” sensitivity mode operates like the “Tachless Hi” setting but looks for a voltage
increase of 0.5v after cranking.
“Tach Wire” Before this setting is programmed, refer to the “Violet/White wire” section of the
installation manual for proper wiring connection and the Tach Learn Procedure. It will crank the
engine for up to 3 seconds or until a tach signal is detected.
“Data Tach” mode operates just like the “Tach Wire” setting except it takes its reading from the
D2D data port instead of using the Violet/White wire. Before using, make sure this function is supported by the Databus Interface module.
“Crank Only” AKA “blind start” is similar to the “Tachless” settings however, it only makes one
start attempt and does not monitor engine running conditions. This is useful for many “push-tostart” vehicles.
