FEATURES AND OPERATIONS
OPTIONAL : REMOTE STARTER WITH SECURITY SYSTEM
The following only applies if your vehicle is equipped with the optional alarm system. If it is not so equipped, the upgrade
can be added to the basic system ay any time in the future.

button of your
transmitter or by passive arming and when 3 trigger points described below has been detected, car horn will sound for 30
seconds (default setting) Press on

function.
The alarm function basically uses 3 trigger points: door trigger, hood switch and impact detector

The door trigger will detect the opening and closing at any door
2.
The hood switch will detect if the hood is opened.
3.
The impact detector will detect if the vehicle has been hit. To avoid false triggering, this sensor is not affected by
brisk wind or rocking. The sensor sensitivity is dealer adjustable

FEATURES AND OPERATIONS
The alarm function will be engaged under the following condition:
1. When the vehicle is locked using the remote transmitter.
Remark:
When you arm the alarm system, if one of the door is left open or ajar, the horn will beep 5 times to
alert you of this condition, but the system will still arm the alarm. It is a good idea to walk around
your vehicle and check all doors. If all doors are well closed and the problems still persist, please
check with your dealer.

after the last door or rear gate are closed.
