Installation Points to Remember
♦ Make sure that vehicles equipped with
an automatic transmission do not start
while in any of the drive gears. If the
vehicle starts in gear, install a
manual-transmission remote starter
instead.
♦ When installing a manual-transmission
product on a vehicle with a manual
transmission, always make sure that all
doors will get the unit out of ready
mode. switch the wire used so that it is
triggered by all doors.
♦ When installing a manual-transmission
product on a vehicle with a manual
transmission, make sure that the
parking brake and door switch contacts
work properly.
♦ When working on a vehicle, always
leave a window open.
♦ Never leave the keys in the car. Leave
them on a workbench with a window
rolled down.
♦ If possible, remove courtesy light fuse
to prevent battery drain.
♦ The PROGRAMMING ASSISTANCE BUTTON (PAB)
The PAB is mounted on the side of the
module unit and fulfils the same
function as the hood-pin switch. The
PAB will spare installers the effort of
getting out of the vehicle to access the
hood-pin switch. The PAB works only
when the hood is up.
♦ Inspect vehicle for any body damage or
electrical problems
♦ Always solder and tape all connections.
♦ Keep the antenna away from other
types of antennas (GPS/OnStar).
♦ Never install the control unit where it
could interfere with normal operation or
obstruct service technicians.
♦ Always use a grommet when running
wires into the engine compartment.
Never run wires through bare or sharp
metal.
P. 4
♦ Do not disconnect the battery on
vehicles equipped with air bags and
anti-theft radios.
♦ Never ground the control unit to the
vehicle’s steering column.
♦ Make sure that all the switches and
controls operate properly.
♦ Verify that the vehicle starts and idles
properly.
♦ Make sure that all safety equipment is
installed: the valet button (if provided),
the hood switch and the warning label.
♦ When wiring in parallel, make sure you
isolate each connection with a diode in
order to avoid feedback and possible
damage.
Examples:
Wiring a clutch bypass and a
transponder module to the ground-outwhen-running wire: At the junction
point, where the ground-out-whenrunning wire “splits” and connects to
each device, a diode is inserted on
each of these lines.
Multiple or separate door pin connections:
When joining all door pins together to
the door pin input wire of the module
unit, each wire must be isolated with a
diode to prevent feedback.
Note: The above examples reflect
common situations where diodes are
use to isolate connections. Please note
that there are numerous other cases
where diode isolation is required.
♦ Always make sure that all external
relays or modules added to the module
unit are properly fused and diode
isolated.
♦ On vehicles equipped with daytime
running lights, the installer may be
unable to see certain programming
results since the daytime running lights
never go out.
Installation Guide AS-2360TW
Note: The parking light output relay of
the unit gives two clicking sounds for
each flash of the lights: one click when
the lights would go ON and one click
when the lights would go OFF.)
♦ Parking light flashes to which the text
refers throughout this manual refer to
the parking light output of the unit, not
of the vehicle.
Harness Description
When connecting a module, it is important to make sure that the connector with the
ground wire is connected first, before making the 12-volt connections. Should the unit be
powered up before being grounded, there could be serious damage to internal
components of the unit.
Be careful not to power up a module before it is properly
g r o u n d e d . To avoid any accident, it is recommended to pull out the fuses from their
sockets before the installation, and to put them back during the very last steps.

Description
This wire must be connected to bare, unpainted metal
(the chassis or the true body ground). It is preferable
to use a factory ground bolt rather than a self-tapping
screw. Screws tend to get loose or rusted over
time and can cause erratic problems.
This wire will allow the module to sense whether the
engine is running. The wire requires at least 1.8 V
(AC) and 1.6 Hz or faster when the engine runs at idle
speed. Common references for the tach wire are: the
negative side of the ignition coil, the camshaft sensor,
the crankshaft sensor or the engine control module
(ECM).
Note: if the tach signal is too low, the module will
“over-crank”. Conversely, if the tach signal is too high,
the module will “under-crank”.
Connect this wire to the installed hood pin switch
supplied. This input will disable or shut down the
remote starter when the hood is up.
This wire must be connected to the brake light wire of
the vehicle. This wire must have +12 V only when the
brake pedal is down. This input will shut down the
remote starter if the brake pedal is pressed.
Installation Guide AS-2360TW
This wire provides a +12 V output and must be

The external trigger wire can be used for remotestarting the vehicle with an external device. When
the vehicle is running, triggering this input will
activate idle mode. The external trigger wire can also
be used to operate as a negative trigger with the
trunk pin-switch, the key sense wire or the door pinswitch:
Option 1 Connects to negative trunk pin. When this
wire is programmed for trunk pin, pressing TRUNK will
activate a 1-second disarm output. If ground (-) is
detected on the trunk pin (the trunk has been
opened), an arm pulse will be sent 5 seconds after
the trunk is closes. An arm pulse will be sent 4
seconds after the TRUNK button is pressed if the trunk
pin state is unchanged (The trunk was unopened). A
disarm pulse is sent only if the system was
previously locked and armed. If secure lock is
enabled, unlock pulse(s) will be sent with the disarm
pulse, a lock pulse and a rearm pulse will be sent
when the trunk is closed or if the trunk was left
(–) External closed.
PURPLE

Option 2 (Default: engine start/stop): The first
ground (-) pulse on this input will start the engine, the
second ground (-) pulse on this input will stop the

Option 3 (Key Sense (-) Input): Connects to OEM
key sense wire. When the key is detected in the
ignition switch (ground (-) signal on the OEM key
sense wire) the starter kill will not arm even when it is
set to passive mode. If secure lock is programmed,
lock and arm will not be activated while the key
sense input is active (“active” meaning there is a key
in the ignition barrel).
Option 4 (Smart ignition re-lock): Connects to the
negative door trigger input. When the ignition lock
option or the lock only option is enabled, after the
brake pedal is pressed and after a door has been
opened and closed, the doors will re-lock.

Running
Caution! If multiple relays or modules are connected
to the ground- out-when-running wire, make sure
they are diode isolated from one another: feedback
may otherwise occur, causing damage to the vehicle.
This input should be used in vehicles with negativeswitching door pins or dome light circuits. Connect
to the dome light wire that tests ground when a door
is open.
Caution! The installer should use either the positive
(–) Negative or the negative door input. Never use both of them

In diesel mode, this positive input will monitor the
glow plug light: it will wait for up to 30 seconds until
the glow-plug light goes out before allowing the
module to proceed to cranking the engine. Connect
to the side of the glow-plug light which is positive
when the light is on.
Note: the module will nevertheless proceed to
cranking the engine if the glow-plug light is still on
after the 30-sec. delay (25 sec. when the run time is
set to 30 min.).
A Note on the Diesel Glow-plug Indicator Light:
(Also known as the “wait-to-start light”.) The purpose
of the glow-plug circuit on diesel vehicles is to preheat the combustion chamber before the vehicle is
started.
When a remote starter is installed on a diesel
vehicle, the glow-plug section of the ignition circuit
must be activated and allowed to operate before the
vehicle is remote-started. For that purpose, the glowplug input wire of the module must be connected to
the glow-plug indicator light of the vehicle.
(+) Glow-Plug Caution! The module will only accept positive glowYELLOW
plug input signals, therefore negative glow plugs
input
should only be connected using relays to invert the
polarity.
A diode must be added between the negative glowplug trigger on the relay and the negative glow-plug
wire of the car. This is to prevent feedback effects on
the glow-plug indicator light on the instrument
cluster: the light on the dash would come on because
of the feedback, even though the circuit is off.
When the user remote-starts the vehicle:
• The module will power up the Ignition circuit and
wait to engage the starter motor while the glowplug indicator light is still on.
• The module will engage the starter motor as
soon as the glow-plug light (+) goes out.
o Minimum waiting time is 5 seconds.
o Maximum waiting time is 30 seconds.
If no glow-plug wire is found on the vehicle, the glowplug input on the module may be “timed out”. The
module will power up the ignition and glow-plug
circuits and simply wait for the time-out before
starting:

• Connecting the glow-plug input wire of the
module to ignition will hold the ignition ON for
the maximum waiting time (15 seconds
recommended)
• Keeping the module’s glow-plug input wire
(+) Glow-Plug
unconnected will hold the ignition ON for the

minimum waiting time (3 sec., not recommended
(cont.)

Flashing the Hood-Pin Switch
Flashing the hood-pin switch is a procedure that brings the module into programming
mode. Once the module is in programming mode, the installer will have a maximum of
20 seconds to select one of the sub-menus. If the installer fails to select a sub-menu
before the 20-second delay, the module will exit the programming mode and the installer
will have to flash the hood pin switch once more.
Tip
As long as the hood is up, you may use the
programming assistance button instead of the hoodpin switch.
P. 12
Installation Guide AS-2360TW
Here are the steps which the installer must follow in order to flash the hood-pin switch:
The installer …
The module …
1. Press and hold the hood-pin switch for 4
seconds.
2. Release the hood-pin switch.
The parking lights will turn ON.
3. While the parking lights are ON, press down

4. Release the hood-pin switch again.
The parking lights will stay ON
Caution! If you press down and release the
for 20 seconds
hood-pin switch too many times, you will
enter diagnostic mode rather than
programming mode.
5. You now have 20 sec. to select one of the
sub-menus.
Table 1: Flashing the hood-pin switch
Once the module has entered programming mode, you will have a selection of many
different sub-menus, which will be described later in this guide:
a. Transmitter Programming ..................................... p.14
b. Programming Options ........................................... p.16
c. Honk/Horn Timing (if available)............................. p.19
d. Tach Programming ............................................... p.17
Remember:
Once the Parking Lights are ON (solid), you have up to 20 seconds to select
a sub-menu. If you do not select a sub-menu within 20 seconds, the Remote
Car Starter will exit Programming Mode and you will have to flash the Hood
Pin switch once again.
The Programming Assistance Button
(A.k.a. the PAB.) Mounted on the Remote
Car Starter, this button can be used from
within the vehicle instead of the Hood Pin
switch in the Engine compartment. This will
spare the installer the trouble of accessing
the Hood Pin switch in the Engine
compartment.
Caution
The Hood Pin switch must be installed and connected in order for the
Programming Assistance Button to function. The button will work only
when the Hood is up.
AS-2360TW Installation Guide
P. 13
Programming a Transmitter
Before you Proceed
The Transmitter of the Remote Car Starter is not delivered pre-programmed: it must be
programmed after the wiring of the Remote Car Starter is completed. The Remote Car
Starter has the ability to retain up to 4 different Transmitter codes; if a fifth Transmitter is
code-programmed, the code of the first Transmitter will be lost from memory. To erase
all Transmitter codes from memory, you must perform a reset of the Remote Car
Starter (see Resetting the Remote Car Starter, later in this Guide, for more details).
The Transmitter Programming Procedure
1. Flash the Hood Pin switch (see Table 1)
– The Parking Lights will stay ON for up to 20 seconds.
– Before the lights go out, turn the Ignition Key to the IGNITION ON (RUN) position.
– Immediately turn the Ignition Key back to the OFF position.
2. Press and hold the LOCK button and keep it down until the Parking Lights flash
5 times quickly.
– The Remote Car Starter has stored the code of the Transmitter into memory.
3. To exit: close the Hood.
Table 1
To program a Transmitter on the second vehicle for Multi-car Operation, you must
press the TRUNK button (instead of LOCK or UNLOCK) in step 3 of the Transmitter codelearning procedure:
Entering Programming Options Mode
The module is equipped with four custom programming modes that allow the installer to
custom-fit the system outputs according to installation requirements. The programming
options are designed to facilitate interfacing with all vehicle types. (See section Table of
Programming Options later in this guide.)
To enter the programming center, follow either procedure (Table 2 or Table 3); please
note that the second procedure requires the use of the plug-in valet (not included):
1. Flash the hood pin switch (see page 12)
– The parking lights will stay ON for up to 20 seconds.

For each timing change, the Horn will honk with the new settings, except in the
following cases:
• When the lower limit of 5 ms is reached, there will be a 1/4-sec. honk.
• When the upper limit of 200 ms is reached, there will be a 3/4-sec. honk.
A system reset will set the Remote Car Starter back to the default values: 30 ms.
Tach Programming
About Tach Programming
If you press the START button before carrying out a Tach Programming procedure, the
Remote Car Starter will make no attempt to start the Engine and the Parking Lights will
give 5 flashes.
AS-2360TW Installation Guide
P. 19
If order to carry out Tach Programming, you may simply follow the Automatic Tach
Programming procedure.
The Remote Car Starter stores Tach settings regardless of the procedure used at the
time of Tach programming. All Tach settings are cleared when the Remote Car Starter is
reset. A new Tach Programming procedure has to be carried out only if the Remote Car
Starter is reset.
Multi-speed Tach Programming
Tach signals may vary from vehicle to vehicle. The Remote Car Starter is designed to
read a wide range of Tach signals produced by recent Ignition systems. There is no
necessary manual adjustment. Nevertheless, a Tach-programming procedure must be
carried out every time a new Remote Car Starter Unit is installed. This is because the
Tach signals of certain Ignition systems are sometimes too low or too high for the
Remote Car Starter, causing failed start-ups at various temperatures.
1. Flash the Hood Pin switch (see Table 1)
– The Parking Lights will stay ON for up to 20 seconds.
– Before the lights go out:
2. Press and hold the Brake Pedal,
– And simultaneously press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the Transmitter:
– The Parking Lights will flash 4 times.
– Release the Brake Pedal.
3. Start up the Engine and allow the vehicle to reach regular Engine idle speed.
4. Once the Engine is running idle, press the Brake Pedal and keep it down until you
hear the Parking Lights Output flash 5 times.
– Release the Brake Pedal: Tach Programming is now complete.
Table 7
Note
The L.E.D. follows the Parking Lights during the
Transmitter Programming procedure.
At any time, close the Hood to end the Tachprogramming procedure.
Automatic Tach Programming
This simple procedure can replace the Multi-speed Tach Programming procedure:
1. Make sure that all the connections are properly made and that the Remote Car
Starter is powered up.
2. With the Hood up (ground on the Hood Pin switch line), start the vehicle using the
Key.
3. Allow the vehicle to reach regular Engine idle speed.
The Parking Light output from the Remote Car Starter will activate when the
vehicle starts and shut off once a Tach signal is detected.
4. Press the Brake Pedal and keep it down until you hear the Parking Lights Output
flash 5 times.
5. Shut down the Engine. Tach Programming is now complete.
Table 8
P. 20
Installation Guide AS-2360TW
Tach Adjustments
After having programmed the tach you might need to adjust it (increase or decrease
the idle speed). In order to do so, you will need to follow these steps:
1- Flash the hood pin (see page 12)
2- Enter the programming centre (see page 14).
3- Press and hold the brake pedal
4- Press simultaneously the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons.
5- With the brake pedal still pressed,
a. Press UNLOCK to decrease the idle speed, or,
b. Press LOCK to increase the idle speed.
6- Once you have obtained the desired idle speed, press TRUNK to save the new
settings. The parking lights will flash five times. If the horn has been
configured you will hear one honk if the last button pressed was LOCK and two
honks if the last button pressed was UNLOCK.
7- Release the brake pedal and close the hood.
8- The adjustment is done.
Table 9

Supplementary Information
Fifth Relay Output (2nd IGN, ACC or CRANK)
programmable 5th Relay that can be used
to power a second Ignition, Accessory or
Crank wire.
The Unit uses 3 sets of pins; each set
corresponds to a specific function of the
output. In order to activate one of the three
possible functions, you must place the
Jumper (supplied) on one of the three sets
of pins and connect the 14 AWG wire to the
second IGN. / ACC. / CRANK wire of the vehicle.
Remote Car Starters of this series are
equipped with an on-board high-current
Caution!
Only one set of pins can be used at one time. Using more than one
Jumper may result in serious damage to the vehicle.
The relay output rating on this unit is 25 A at most. Defective OEM solenoid
switches can sometimes draw up to 50 or 60 A, causing the 30 A Fuse to
blow. Always verify your circuit with an appropriate measuring device.
Clutch bypass
In order to remote start a manual-Transmission vehicle, the Clutch switch must be
bypassed. Clutch safety switch circuits can take many forms. The most common types
are listed below. When testing to determine the type of Clutch circuit, it is recommended
that you use a computer-safe logic probe. Some vehicles may also have a separate or
combined switch on the Clutch pedal for cruise control. Usually, a cruise-control switch
reacts at the moment you touch the pedal, whereas a Clutch switch reacts only when the
pedal is near the floor. Once the circuit type is determined, you must recreate, with the
Remote Car Starter, the electrical interaction occurring at the switch in order to bypass
the Clutch at the moment of remote starts. Relays are often used to accomplish this.
Always use the Ground Out When Running (G.O.) wire as the negative trigger on your
Clutch bypass relays, as it is only active during remote starts.
Never carry out a permanent Clutch switch bypass. Do not attempt a bypass at all if you
are unfamiliar with the use of relays and diode isolation.
AS-2360TW Installation Guide
P. 23
Before any Hot Wiring attempts:
Test and record the way each wire tests in the following positions:
With the pedal up:
test the wire with the Ignition Key in the OFF position
test the wire with the Key in the IGNITION ON (RUN) position
test the wire with the Key in the START position
With the pedal down:
test the wire with the Ignition Key in the OFF position
test the wire with the Key in the IGNITION ON (RUN) position
test the wire with the Key in the START position
With this information for every wire at the switch, determining what type of clutch
switching system you have will be easy.
Direct Feed:
The simplest type of system to test and bypass is the “Direct Feed” system. This circuit
simply interrupts the +12 V signal starter wire from the Ignition switch to the starter
solenoid. There are 2 wires in this circuit, the “key side” wire which goes from the clutch
pedal to the Ignition switch, and the “solenoid side” which goes from the clutch switch to
the starter motor. When the key is turned to the START position without pressing the pedal,
you will test 12 V only on one of the wires at the clutch switch, this is the key side. When
the pedal is pressed down, and the key is the crank position, the other wire will now also
read 12 V, this is the solenoid side wire. To confirm you have a direct feed clutch switch,
hot wire the “solenoid side” wire with fused +12 V, and the starter motor will crank.
Connect the starter output from the Remote Car Starter to the Solenoid side of the wire.
Note:
In the next two systems a Relay in the vehicle interrupts the start wire between the Ignition switch
and the starter motor. With the in the START position, and the clutch pedal pressed, the relay
energizes and allows the START signal to reach the starter motor. In these systems a wires from
the clutch triggers the relay, when the pedal is pressed. There will be another wire at the clutch
switch that supplies the signal to the trigger wire (either positive or negative, depending on the
system)
Negative Systems:
In a Negative system, when the clutch is pressed; a negative signal is sent to the relay,
the relay energizes, when the Key is turned to the START position the 12 V from the start
wire is allowed to pass through the relay and to starter motor. One of the wires at the
clutch will test as negative, this is the supply wire. The relay's negative trigger wire will
only show negative when the pedal is pressed ( some vehicle's also require the Ignition
system to be powered). To confirm you have a Negative system, hot wire the negative
trigger wire by jumping it to a ground source with your fused test jumper. You should
now be able to turn the key to the START position and engage the start motor, with out
pressing in the clutch pedal. If there is nothing else connected to the Ground Out When
Running (G.O.) wire from the Remote Car Starter, the G.O. wire should be strong
enough to trigger the vehicle's clutch relay. If there are other devices or modules
connected to the G.O. Wire, a relay (and diodes) may have to be added to strengthen the
negative current going to the clutch bypass.
P. 24
Installation Guide AS-2360TW
Positive Systems:
Very similar to the negative system, except that the vehicle's clutch relay is trigger by
12 V, instead of a negative signal. In a Positive system, when the clutch is pressed; a
positive (12 V) signal is sent to the relay, the relay energizes, when the Key is turned to
the START position the 12 V from the start wire is allowed to pass through the relay and to
starter motor. One of the wires at the clutch will test as 12 V, this is the supply wire. The
relay's positive trigger wire will only show positive when the pedal is pressed (some
vehicle's also require the Ignition system to be powered). To confirm you have Positive
system, hot wire the positive trigger wire by jumping it to a 12 V source with your fused
test jumper. You should now be able to turn the key to the START position and engage the
start motor, without pressing in the clutch pedal. A relay is needed to send 12 V to the
trigger wire from the Remote Car Starter during start attempts.
Note on N/C systems:
There are different types of this system used by various vehicle manufactures, the following is used
to illustrate how these systems work in general.
Normally Closed (N/C) Systems:
In the previous two examples, the clutch was bypassed by engaging the clutch relay. In
an N/C system, a relay is also used to interrupt the starter wire. In order to bypass an
N/C Clutch, one must prevent the Clutch relay from engaging.
If the pedal is not pressed, when the Ignition Key is turned to the START position, the relay
energizes and interrupts the start wire. If the pedal is pressed, when the Ignition Key is
turned to the START position, the relay does not energize and the START signal reaches the
Starter Motor.
In an N/C system, the supply wire is connected to the trigger wire of the relay at rest
(Pedal not pressed). When the Pedal is pressed, the connection is broken between the
supply wire and the trigger wire of the relay (disengaging the relay). To verify that you
have a N/C system disconnect the clutch switch, and the vehicle should start without the
clutch pedal being pressed. When you test the trigger wire with your logic probe, the
trigger wire will test as 12 V or negative when the pedal is not pressed, it should read as
an open circuit ( or Float) when the pedal is pressed.
Please note:
Your probe may also show feed back from the other
end of the circuit. The Polarity of the Trigger wire
does not matter in this system: all you need to do in
order to bypass it is to use a relay to interrupt this
wire during remote starts.
Ignition-controlled Door Locks
This feature will LOCK all the Doors of the vehicle when the Brake Pedal is pressed while
the Ignition Key is in the IGNITION ON (RUN) position. The unit will UNLOCK all Doors when the
Ignition Key is turned back to the OFF position.
If Ignition Lock Only is selected, the system will only LOCK all Doors when the Brake
Pedal is pressed while the Ignition Key is in the IGNITION ON (RUN) position.
AS-2360TW Installation Guide
P. 25
If option Ignition Unlock Only is selected, the system will UNLOCK all Doors when the key
is turned to the OFF position (provided that the Ignition key was in the IGNITION ON (RUN)
position and that the Brake Pedal was pressed at least once).
Secure Lock
This feature allows the Remote Car Starter to control certain OEM factory Alarm systems
without requiring the use of other wires for disarming the OEM Alarm. (Namely, this
feature is designed for OEM systems which use the factory Lock wire to arm the Alarm
and the Unlock wire to disarm it.)
Standard Secure Lock
If this Option is selected, upon receiving a remote START signal, Secure Lock will UNLOCK
the Doors (disarming the factory Alarm); 1/2 sec. after remote start Secure Lock will relock the Doors. 4 seconds after shutdown, Secure Lock will re-lock all Doors (arming
the system once again). Please note that most OEM systems will not rearm the Alarm
while the Engine is running, but will still lock the Doors.
Smart Secure Lock
If the vehicle is initially locked, upon remote START the Remote Car Starter will trigger an
unlock pulse and a disarm pulse before the Engine is started. The Remote Car Starter
will LOCK again when the Engine is running, and LOCK once again 4 seconds after shutdown.
If the vehicle is initially unlocked, upon remote START the Remote Car Starter will start
the Engine and arm the Starter Kill, but the Doors will not be locked or unlocked at any
moment of the sequence.
Lock Pulse Duration
The duration of the Lock and Unlock pulses can be configured as follows:
•
•
•
•
(Default) 7/10-sec. LOCK and 7/10-sec. UNLOCK pulses
4-sec. LOCK/UNLOCK pulses to control vacuum Door Lock systems
A single 7/10-sec. LOCK pulse and two 1/4-sec. UNLOCK pulses
for double-pulse disarm/unlock systems.
1/10-sec. LOCK and 1/10-sec. UNLOCK pulses
Engine Run Time
Use this Function to configure the length of time the Engine will be left running under
remote control. The Remote Car Starter will allow the Engine to run for either 4, 15 or 25
min. in Gas Mode and 9, 20 or 30 min. in Diesel Mode. Standard default Run Time is 15
minutes in Gas mode and 20 minutes in Diesel mode.
Starter Kill (Installation)
The Remote Car Starter is equipped with a selectable Passive or Active-arming Starter
Kill circuit that will prevent the vehicle from being started with the Ignition Key when the
Remote Car Starter is armed. The Starter Kill wire will provide a constant 500-mA.
negative output when the system is armed (locked by remote control) and can be
connected to an external Starter or Ignition interrupt relay (see diagram below).
The Starter Kill circuit can be set to arm in either Passive Mode or Active Mode
P. 26
Installation Guide AS-2360TW
Caution!!!
When installing the Starter Kill, it is extremely important that pin 86 be wired to Ignition: do not
jump it to pin 30 (damage to the vehicle could result).
Note: Installation of the Starter Kill system requires an external relay. (Not included!)
Passive or Active Arming
The Remote Car Starter can be set to:
•
•
•
Active Arming: the Starter Kill will not arm automatically. Press the LOCK button to
arm and the UNLOCK button to disarm it.
Passive Arming: the Starter Kill will arm automatically if it is not armed by remote
within a 60-sec. delay. Press UNLOCK to disarm.
Passive Arming with 3-minute timeout: the Starter Kill will arm automatically after
3 minutes.
Resetting the Remote Car Starter
The Remote Car Starter is equipped with a reset function that allows the installer to
erase all Transmitter codes from memory and return all the Programming Options to the
factory default values.
Resetting the Remote Car Starter is not a required process. Most of the time, you can
avoid resetting by fixing the issue directly at the root of the cause.
1. Flash the Hood Pin switch (see Table 1)
– Once inside Programming Mode, you have 10 seconds to complete the next step.
2. Press and release the Break Pedal 6 times (within 10 seconds from entering
Programming Mode).
3. The Parking Lights will flash 8 times to confirm resetting.
Table 12
Resetting without a Valet Button
On some vehicles (such as BMW and certain Volkswagen vehicles), resetting will not
work if the Brake Pedal is pressed while the Ignition Key is not in the IGNITION ON (RUN)
position: you will need therefore to hot-wire the Brake Pedal by manually jumping 12 V
with a fused test lead at the Brake Pedal switch.
1. Flash the Hood Pin switch (see Table 1)
– Once inside Programming Mode, you have 10 seconds to complete the next step.
2. Press and release the Valet Button 6 times or more until the Parking Lights start to
flash.
3. The Parking Lights will flash 8 times to confirm resetting.
