INSTALLATION OF MAJOR COMPONENTS
Control Module:
Select a mounting location inside the passenger compartment (up behind the dash), and secure using the
two screws provided. The control module can also be secured in place using cable ties.
Do not mount the control module in the engine compartment, as it is not waterproof. You should also avoid
mounting the unit directly onto factory installed electronic components. These components may cause RF
interference, which can result in poor transmitter range or intermittent operation.
Siren:
Select a mounting location in the engine compartment that is well protected from access below the
vehicle. Avoid areas near high heat components or moving parts within the engine compartment. To
prevent water retention, the flared end of the siren must be pointed downward when mounted.
Mount the siren to the selected location using the screws and bracket provided.
Hood or Trunk Pin Switch:
A pin switch is included for use in protecting the hood or trunk (or hatchback) of the vehicle. The switch
must always be mounted to a grounded, metal surface of the vehicle. It is important to select a location
where water cannot flow or collect, and to avoid all drip gutters on hood and trunk fender walls. Choose
locations that are protected by rubber gaskets when the hood or trunk lid is closed.
The pin switch can be mounted using the bracket provided, or direct mounted by drilling a ¼" diameter
mounting hole. Keep in mind that when properly mounted, the plunger of the pin switch should depress at
least ¼ " when the hood or trunk lid is closed.
Dash Mounted LED:
A small red LED is included that will serve as a visual indicator of the alarm status. It should be installed in
Page 2
the dash, located where it can be easily seen from outside the vehicle, yet not be distracting to the driver.
Once a location has been selected, check behind the panel for wire routing access, and to confirm the drill
will not damage any existing components as it passes through the panel.
Drill a ¼" diameter hole, and pass the red and blue wires from the LED through the hole, from the front of
the panel. Firmly press the body of the LED into the hole until fully seated.
Valet Switch:
Select a mounting location for the switch that is easily accessible to the driver of the vehicle. The switch
does not have to be concealed, however, concealing the switch is always recommended, as this provides
an even higher level of security to the vehicle.
The valet switch can be mounted to the lower side of the dash by drilling a ¼" diameter hole in the selected
location.
Be sure to check behind the dash for adequate clearance for the body of the switch, and to confirm that
the drill will not damage any existing components as it passes through the dash. Route the two pin
connector toward the control module.
OPTIONAL Shock Sensor:
Select a solid mounting surface for the shock sensor on the firewall inside the passenger compartment,
and mount the sensor using the two screws provided. The shock sensor can also be secured to any fixed
brace behind the dash using tie straps.
Whichever mounting method is selected, make certain that the sensitivity adjustment is accessible for use
later in the installation.
WIRING THE SYSTEM
Large 8 Pin Edge Connector:
Red/White (5Amp) & Red Fused (15Amp) Wires: + 12 VDC CONSTANT BATTERY SOURCE
This wire controls the sensitivity of the voltage sensing circuit, which detects the turning on of an interior
light when a door is opened. It will also detect the switching on of parking or headlamps, and in many
cases will trigger the alarm when a thermostatically controlled electronic radiator cooling fan switches on.
When installing this system into vehicles with electronic "after fans", it is recommended you disable the
voltage sense circuit.
In voltage sensing applications, the closer to the battery that the red wire is connected, the less sensitive
the voltage sense circuitry will be. Moving this connection point to the fuse panel will increase the sensitivity,
and connecting to the courtesy lamp fuse in the vehicle will provide maximum sensitivity of the voltage
sense circuit. Be certain to set selectable feature # 7 to 1 chirp, Voltage Sense On.
When hardwiring the control module to pin switches at all entry points, the voltage sense circuit must be
disabled.
Orange Wire: 300 mA GROUND OUTPUT WHEN ARMED - N. C. STARTER DISABLE (Optional Relay
Required)
This wire is provided to control the starter cut relay. Connect the orange wire to terminal 86 of the relay.
Connect relay terminal 85 to an ignition wire in the vehicle that is live when the key is in the on and crank
positions, and off when the key is in the off position. (This is where the yellow wire from the alarm should
be connected).
Cut the low current starter solenoid wire in the vehicle, and connect one side of the cut wire to relay
terminal 87A. Connect the other side of the cut wire to relay terminal 30.
Note: This is a normally closed starter cut arrangement, and when power is removed from the
security system, the starter disable feature will not operate, allowing the vehicle to start.
Audiovox does not recommend using the Orange wire to interrupt anything but the starting
circuit of the vehicle.
Green w/ White trace Wire: Entry Illumination Ground Output
This wire provides a 30 second ground output (300 mA Max.) whenever the remote is used to disarm the
alarm or to unlock the doors and provides a continuous pulsed output whenever the alarm is triggered.
This wire should be connected to an external relay and wired to the vehicles interior entry lighting
whenever the optional Interior Illumination circuit is desired. See Wiring Diagram for details.
Page 3
Dark Blue Wire: DELAYED 300 mA PULSED OUTPUT / CHANNEL 3
The dark blue wire pulses to ground via an independent RF channel from the keychain transmitter. This is
a transistorized, low current output, and should only be used to drive an external relay coil.
WARNING: Connecting the dark blue wire to the high current switched output of trunk release circuits,
some remote start trigger inputs, will damage the control module.
Connect the dark blue wire to terminal 86 of the AS - 9256 relay (or equivalent 30 A automotive relay), and
wire the remaining relay contacts to perform the selected function of channel 3.
White w/ Black Trace Wire: POSITIVE OUTPUT TO SIREN
Route this wire through a rubber grommet in the firewall, and to the siren location.
Connect the white / black wire to the positive wire of the siren. Secure the black ground wire of the siren
to chassis ground.
Black Wire: CHASSIS GROUND
Connect this wire to a solid, metal part of the vehicle’s chassis. Do not confuse this wire with the thin black
antenna wire that exits the control module independently.
White Wire: + 12 VDC PULSED PARKING LIGHT OUTPUT (15 AMP MAX)
This wire is provided to flash the vehicle’s parking lights. Connect the white wire to the positive side of one
of the vehicle’s parking lights.
Wiring The 11 Pin Mini Edge Connector:
Dark Green w/ Black Trace Wire: LATCHING OUTPUT / CHANNEL 4
The green w/ black trace wire latches to ground via an independent RF channel from the keychain transmitter. This is a transistorized, low current (300 mA) output, and should only be used to drive an external
relay coil.
This wire provides an immediate ground signal, and stays at ground for as long as the button(s) on the
keychain transmitter remains pressed.
WARNING! Connecting the dark green w/ black trace wire to the high current switched output of
trunk release circuits will damage the control module.
Connect the dark green w/ black trace wire to terminal 86 of the AS 9256 relay (or an equivalent 30 Amp
automotive relay), and wire the remaining relay contacts to perform the selected function of channel 4.
Dark Blue w/Black Trace Wire: Alternate Channel 3 Output (Dbl. Push Required)
This wire is controlled from the transmitter button programmed to the receiver's channel 3. By double
pressing this the transmitter button, this output will become active for 1 second. This is a transistorized,
low current (300 mA) output, designed to provide an output only when the transmitter is intentionally
operated, such as is the case with remote start add on modules. If you require more than 300mA drive
from this output, you must drive an external relay coil, and arrange the relays contacts to preform the
specified function.
NOTE: Pressing the transmitter button, then immediately pressing and holding it will cause this output to
be active as long as the transmitter button is depressed.
Black w/ White Trace Wire: 300 mA Horn Output
The black w/ white trace wire is provided to beep the vehicle’s horn. This is a transistorized low current
output, and should only be connected to the low current ground output from the vehicle’s horn switch.
If the vehicle uses a + 12 VDC horn switch, then connect the black w/ white trace wire to terminal 86 of the
AS 9256 relay (or an equivalent 30 Amp automotive relay), and connect relay terminal 85 to a fused + 12
VDC battery source. Connect relay terminal 87 to the vehicle’s horn switch output, and connect relay
terminal 30 to a fused + 12 VDC battery source.
Orange w/ White Trace Wire: 300 mA GROUND OUTPUT WHEN DISARMED - N. O. STARTER DISABLE
(Optional Relay Required).
This wire is provided to control the starter cut relay. Connect the orange w/white wire to terminal 86 of the
relay. Connect relay terminal 85 to an ignition wire in the vehicle that is live when the key is in the on and
Page 4
crank positions, and off when the key is in the off position. (This is where the yellow wire from the alarm
should be connected).
Cut the low current starter solenoid wire in the vehicle, and connect one side of the cut wire to relay
terminal 87. Connect the other side of the cut wire to relay terminal 30.
Note: This is a normally opened starter cut arrangement, and when power is removed from the
security system, the starter disable feature will remain operational, and the vehicle will not
start. Audiovox does not recommend using the Orange w/ White trace wire to interrupt
anything but the starting circuit of the vehicle.
Dark Green Wire: ( - ) INSTANT TRIGGER ZONE
This is an instant on ground trigger wire. It must be connected to the previously installed hood and trunk
pin switches.
Brown Wire: - DOOR TRIGGER
If the vehicle’s courtesy light switches have a ( - ) ground output when the door is opened (GM and most
Imports), you must connect this wire to the negative output from one of the door switches.
WARNING: Do not use the brown wire if the vehicle has + 12 volt output type door switches.
(see Purple Wire).
Purple Wire: + DOOR TRIGGER
If the vehicle’s door courtesy light switches have a + 12 volt output when the door is opened (most Fords
and some Imports), you must connect this wire to the positive output from one of the door switches.
WARNING: Do not use the purple wire if the vehicle has ground output type door switches.
(see Brown Wire).
Yellow Wire: + 12 VDC IGNITION SOURCE
Connect this wire to a source that is live when the key is in the on and crank positions. Be sure that this
source is off when the key is in the off position.
White w/ Blue Trace Wire: Low Current (-) Ground Headlight Output
The White w/ Blue Trace wire is provided to operate the optional headlamp illumination feature of the
system. This is a low current (300mA) output and must be connected to an external relay to control the
high current switching circuit of the vehicle's headlamps. To use this option, connect the White /w Blue
Trace wire to terminal # 86 of a P&B VF45F11 relay or equivalent. Connect Terminals #85 and # 30 to a
fused + 12 Volts source with a current capability equal to or in excess of the factory headlamp fuse.
Connect terminal # 87 of the relay to the switched + 12 volt wire feeding the vehicle's headlamp circuit.
NOTE: For ground switched headlamp circuits, connect the White /w Blue Trace wire to terminal # 86 of
a P&B VF45F11 relay or equivalent. Connect Terminal #85 to a fused + 12 Volts source. Connect
terminal # 30 to a clean chassis ground. Connect terminal # 87 to the ground switched headlamp
control wire in the vehicle.
Light Green Wire: (-) Instant Trigger Zone 1
This is a instant on ground trigger input intended for the connection of optional triggering devices. The
ground trigger output wire of motion detectors, microwave detectors, or glass break detectors, can be
connected to this Light Green trigger input wire.
Light Blue/Green Wire: DELAYED 300 mA PULSED OUTPUT / CHANNEL 5
The light blue/green wire pulses to ground via an independent RF channel from the keychain transmitter.
This is a transistorized, low current output, and should only be used to drive an external relay coil.
WARNING: Connecting the light blue/green to the high current switched output of trunk release circuits,
some remote start trigger inputs, will damage the control module.
Connect the light blue/green to terminal 86 of the AS - 9256 relay (or equivalent 30 A automotive relay),
and wire the remaining relay contacts to perform the selected function of channel 5.
2 Pin Blue Connector: Valet Switch

into the mating white connector on the side of the module.
4 Pin White Connector: Shock Sensor (OPTIONAL)
Route the red, black and green wires in the 4 pin white connector from the shock sensor to the control
module, and plug one end into the shock sensor, and the other end into the mating white connector on the
side of the module.
Red / Green / Red w/Black Trace 3 Pin White Connector: Door Lock Outputs
The Red and Green wires will provide either a pulsed ground output to the factory door lock control relay,
or a pulsed + 12 volt output to the factory door lock control relay. In either case, the maximum current
draw through these outputs must not exceed 300 mA. The Red w/Black trace wire will provide a pulsed
ground only, and will only provide an output when the unlock button of the transmitter is pressed a second
time after a first unlock command was issued. This is used for second step unlock or all doors unlock in
a two step circuit. In this arrangement, Red, or Green is used to control the drivers door unlock relay, and
the Red/Black will be used to control unlock of all other doors.
3 Wire Ground Switched Single Step Door Locks
In this application, the red wire provides a ground pulse during arming, or the pulsed ground lock
output. Connect the red wire to the wire that provides a low current ground signal from the factory door
lock switch to the factory door lock control relay.
The green wire provides a ground pulse during disarming, or the pulsed ground unlock output.
Connect the green wire to the wire that provides a low current ground signal from the factory door unlock
switch to the factory door unlock control relay.
Red/Black Not Used.
3 Wire Ground Switched 2 Step Door Locks
In this application, the red wire provides a ground pulse during arming, or the pulsed ground lock
output. Connect the red wire to the wire that provides a low current ground signal from the factory door
lock switch to the factory door lock control relay.
The green wire provides the first ground pulse during disarming, or the drivers door pulsed ground
unlock output. Connect this wire to the drivers door unlock relay that requires a low current ground
signal to unlock only the drivers door. If the vehicle does not have a separate drivers door relay, one will
have to be added. Locate the drivers door unlock motor wire and cut it at a convenient location to allow
wiring of an optional relay. Connect the door side of the cut wire to terminal 30 of the optional relay added.
Connect the vehicle side of the cut wire to terminal 87a of the optional relay added. Connect the green
wire of the 3 pin harness to terminal 86 of the optional relay added. Connect terminal 85 of the optional
relay added to a fused constant + 12 volt source. Most vehicles door lock/unlock motor legs rest at
ground, and switch +12 volts to the door lock/unlock motor legs for operation, if this is the case in the
vehicle you are working on, connect the remaining terminal, 87, to a fused + 12 volt source. In the rare
instance that the vehicle door lock/unlock motor legs rest at + 12 volts and switches ground to the door
lock/unlock motors, connect he remaining terminal, 87, to chassis ground.
The Red/Black wire provides a pulse ground output when the unlock button of the transmitter is pressed
a second time after disarming. Connect the Red/Black wire to the wire that provides a low current ground
signal from the factory door unlock switch to the factory door lock control relay.
3 Wire Positive Switched Door Locks
In this application, the red wire provides a positive pulse during disarming, or the pulsed + 12 volt
unlock output. Connect the red wire to the wire that provides a low current positive signal from the factory
door unlock switch to the factory door lock control relay.
The green wire provides a positive pulse during arming, or the pulsed + 12 volt lock output. Connect the
green wire to the wire that provides a low current positive signal from the factory door lock switch to the
factory door lock control relay.
Page 6
3 Wire Positive Switched 2 Step Door Locks
The green wire provides a positive pulse during arming, or the pulsed + 12 volt lock output. Connect the
green wire to the wire that provides a low current positive signal from the factory door lock switch to the
factory door lock control relay.
The red wire provides a positive pulse during disarming, or the drivers door pulsed positive unlock
output. Connect this wire to the drivers door unlock relay that requires a low current positive signal to
unlock only the drivers door. If the vehicle does not have a separate drivers door relay, one will have to be
added. Locate the drivers door unlock motor wire and cut it at a convenient location to allow wiring of an
optional relay. Connect the door side of the cut wire to terminal 30 of the optional relay added. Connect
the vehicle side of the cut wire to terminal 87a of the optional relay added. Connect the red wire of the 3
pin harness to terminal 86 of the optional relay added. Connect terminal 85 of the optional relay added to
chassis ground. Most vehicles door lock/unlock motor legs rest at ground, and switch +12 volts to the
door lock/unlock motor legs for operation, if this is the case in the vehicle you are working on, connect the
remaining terminal, 87, to a fused + 12 volt source. In the rare instance that the vehicle door lock/unlock
motor legs rest at + 12 volts and switches ground to the door lock/unlock motors, connect he remaining
terminal, 87, to chassis ground.
The Red/Black wire provides a pulse ground output when the unlock button of the transmitter is pressed
a second time after disarming. Because the vehicle you are working on requires a positive pulse from the
factory door lock switch to the factory door lock control relay, you will have to add a relay to invert the
output polarity of this wire. Connect the Red/Black wire to terminal 86 of the optional added relay.
Connect terminal 85 & 87 to a fuse + 12 volt source. Connect terminal 30 to the low current door unlock
wire from the factory door switch to the door unlock control relay.
Resistive Circuits, As Well As 4 Wire Polarity Reversal and 5 Wire Alternating 12 Volt
Door Lock Control Circuits
These applications require the use of additional components which may include relays, fixed resistors, or
for convenience, the AS 9159 Door Lock Interface. Refer to the AUDIOVOX Door Lock Wiring Supplement
and or the Audiovox fax back service for information on your particular vehicle for properly connecting to
these types of circuits.
COMPLETING THE INSTALLATION
Antenna Wire: Be sure to extend the thin black antenna wire to it’s full length, and cable tie into place
where it cannot be damaged. Avoid wrapping this wire around major, high current wire looms.
Adjusting the OPTIONAL Shock Sensor: Using a small screwdriver, gently turn the adjustment screw
fully counterclockwise. (DO NOT over turn this screw. Maximum rotation for this adjustment is 270°).
Close the hood and trunk lids, and arm the alarm. Wait 6 seconds for the accessories trigger zone to
stabilize, then firmly strike the rear bumper with the side of a closed fist considering the amount of force
required to break a window.
CAUTION: Never perform this test on the vehicle’s glass, as you may break the window.
Turn the adjustment screw clockwise (increasing sensitivity) about ¼ turn and re-test. Repeat this procedure
until the alarm sounds. Ultimately, one very firm strike to the rear bumper will cause the alarm to sound.
WARNING! Setting the sensitivity too high can cause false alarms due to noise vibrations from passing
trucks and heavy equipment. To decrease sensitivity, turn the adjustment screw counter
clockwise.
Wire Dressing: Always wrap the alarm wires in convoluted tubing, or with a spiral wrap of electrical tape.
Secure these looms along the routing using cable ties. This will ensure that the alarm wires are not
damaged by falling onto hot or sharp moving surfaces in the vehicle.
Operation: Take a few moments to check off the appropriate option boxes in the owner’s manual, and to
fully explain the operation of the system to your customer.
