Installation points to remember
This product is designed for fuel-injected, automatic transmission vehicles only.
Installing it in a standard transmission vehicle is dangerous and is contrary to
its intended use.
➤ Intelli-Tach
Intelli-Tach is a new feature for Ungo this year. It is the default RPM-sensing
method for the new remote start system.
Intelli-Tach gives the installer the performance of a hard wired tach wire, with
the convenience of voltage sensing. It is far superior to any voltage-sense feature
you’ve tried before.
Intelli-Tach monitors the cranking voltage of the vehicle using a very fast micro
controller and an analog-to-digital converter. The microprocessor “saves” the
base voltage as a reference. When Intelli-Tach “sees” the slightest uptick in
voltage, indicating that the alternator is charging the battery, the starter motor
shuts off instantly.
➤ D2D
The system has the ability to interface with an XK module through the D2D port.
The advantage to using a D2D interface is that there is less wiring involved in
the installation. Check the XK module installation guide to determine which wires
are not needed, and which options are available.

Please read this entire installation guide before beginning the installation.
The installation of this remote start system requires interfacing with many of
the vehicle’s systems. Many new vehicles use low-voltage or multiplexed
systems that can be damaged by low resistance testing devices, such as
test lights and logic probes (computer safe test lights). Test all circuits with a
high quality digital multi-meter before making connections.
Do not disconnect the battery if the vehicle has an anti-theft-coded radio.
If equipped with an air bag, avoid disconnecting the battery if possible.
Many airbag systems display a diagnostic code through the warning lights
after the lights lose power. Disconnecting the battery causes the anti-theft
code to be erased, which can then require a trip to the dealer.
If using an external LED or Program Switch, check with the customer about
where to locate the switch.
To avoid accidental battery drainage; turn off the interior lights or remove
the dome light fuse.
Roll down a window to avoid being locked out of the car.

Finding the wires you need
Important: Do not use a 12V test light or logic probe (computer safe test light) to locate these wires. All testing described
in this manual assumes the use of a digital multimeter.
➤ Obtaining constant 12V
We recommend two possible sources for 12V constant: The (+) terminal of
the battery, or the constant 12V supply to the ignition switch. Always install a
fuse within 12 inches of this connection. If the fuse will also be powering other
circuits, such as door locks, a power window module, or a Nite-Lite® headlight
control system, fuse accordingly.
Important: Do not remove the fuse holder on the red wire. It ensures that the control module has its own fuse, of the proper value,
regardless of how many accessories are added to the main power
feed. .
➤ Starter wire
The starter wire provides 12V directly to the starter or to a relay controlling
starter. In some vehicles, it is necessary to power a cold start circuit. A cold
start circuit will test exactly like a starter circuit, but it does not control the
starter. Instead, the cold start circuit is used to prime the fuel injection system for
starting when the vehicle is cold.
10

How to find the starter wire with your multimeter:
1.
2.
3.
Set to DCV or DC voltage (12V or 20V is fine).
Attach the (-) probe of the meter to chassis ground.
Probe the wire you suspect of being the starter wire. The steering column
is an ex­cel­lent place to find this wire. Re­mem­ber you do not need to interrupt the starter, unless an optional anit-grind/starter disable relay is going
to be installed. Hiding your starter kill relay and con­nec­tions is always
rec­om­mend­ed.
4. Turn the ignition key switch to the start position. Make sure the car is not in
gear! If your meter reads (+)12V, go to the next step. If it doesn’t, probe
another wire.
5. If installing an optional anti-grind/starter disable relay, cut the wire you
suspect of being the starter wire.
6. Attempt to start the car. If the starter engages, reconnect it and go back to
Step 3. If the starter does not turn over, you have the right wire.
7. Connect the key side of the starter wire to terminal 87a of the optional
relay.
8. Connect the violet wire along with the start motor side of the wire to terminal 30 on the relay.
9. Connect a wire from the 12V switched ignition wire to terminal 86 on
the relay. (See "finding the 12V switched ignition wire" for assistance in
locating the wire)
10. Connect the orange wire (H1/5) from the 9-pin harness to terminal 85
of the relay.

➤12V switched ignition wire
The ignition wire is powered when the key is in the run or start position. This is
because the ignition wire powers the ignition system (spark plugs, coil) as well
as the fuel delivery system (fuel pump, fuel injection computer). Accessory wires
lose power when the key is in the start position to make more current avail­able to
the starter motor.
How to find (+)12V ignition with your multimeter:
1. Set to DCV or DC voltage (12V or 20V is fine).
2. Attach the (-) probe of the meter to chassis ground.
3. Probe the wire you suspect of being the ignition wire. The steering column
harness or ig­ni­tion switch harness is an excellent place to find this wire.
4. Turn the ignition key switch to the run position. If your meter reads (+)12V,
go to the next step. If it does not read (+)12V, probe another wire.
5. Now turn the key to the start po­si­tion. The meter display should stay steady,
not drop­ping by more than a few tenths of a volt. If it drops close to or all
the way to zero, go back to Step 3. If it stays steady at (+)12V, you have
found an ig­ni­tion wire.
➤ Accessory wire
An accessory wire will show (+)12V when the key is in the accessory and run
positions. It will not show (+)12V during the cranking cycle. There will often be
more than one accessory wire in the ignition harness. The correct accessory
wire will power the vehicle's climate control system. Some vehicles may have
separate wires for the blower motor and the air conditioning compressor. In
such cases, it will be necessary to add a relay to power the second accessory
wire.
➤ (+) Parking light wire
Most vehicles use a (+) parking light circuit. The (+) parking light wire is often
found near the light switch. In many vehicles the light switch is built into the turn
signal lever; in these vehicles the parking light wire can be found in the steering column. The same wire can often be accessed in the kick panel or running
board.
12
© 2008 Directed Electronics. All rights reserved.
Note: Many Toyotas and other Asian vehicles, send a (-) signal from the switch
to a relay. The relay then sends (+)12V to the bulbs. Whenever you have difficulty finding a (+) parking light wire near the switch, simply test the wires at any
switch or control panel that is lit by the instrument panel lighting. Remember, you
need a (+) parking light wire that does not vary with the dimmer setting.
How to find a (+) parking light flash wire with your multimeter:
1. Set to DCV or DC voltage (12V or 20V is fine).
2. Attach the (-) probe of the meter to chassis ground.
3. Probe the wire you suspect of being the parking light wire. Usually, the
area near the headlight/park­ing light switch is an excellent area to start,
as is the kick panel.
4. Turn on the parking lights. If your meter shows (+)12V, turn off the parking
lights and make sure it goes back to zero.
5. If it does return to zero, turn the parking lights back on and, using the
dash light dim­mer con­trol, turn the brightness of the dash lights up and
down. If the meter changes more than a volt when using the dimmer, look
for an­oth­er wire. If it stays relatively close to (+)12V, you have found your
parking light wire
Note: Vehicles that use a (-) signal from the switch to the factory relay may be
interfaced directly. (See H1/5 WHITE wire of Primary Harness (H1) Wire Connection Guide section.)
➤ Tachometer wire
To test for a tachometer wire, a multimeter capable of testing AC voltage must

13
be used. The tachometer wire will show between 1V and 6V AC. In multi-coil
ignition systems, the system can learn individual coil wires. Individual coil wires
in a multi-coil ignition system will register lower amounts of AC voltage. Also, if
necessary, the system can use a fuel injector control wire for engine speed sensing. Common locations for a tachometer wire are the ignition coil itself, the back
of the gauges, engine computers, and automatic transmission computers.
Important! Do not test tachometer wires using a test light or logic probe. The
vehicle will be damaged.
1. How to find a tachometer wire with your multimeter:
2. Set to ACV or AC voltage (12V or 20V is fine).
3. Attach the (-) probe of the meter to chassis ground.
4. Start and run the vehicle.
5. Probe the wire you suspect of being the tachometer wire with the red probe
of the meter.
6. If this is the correct wire the meter will read between 1V and 6V.

Making your wiring connections
Before making your connections, plan how your wires will be routed through
the vehicle. For instance, the red 12V constant input and the remote start ignition wires are often routed together to the ignition switch harness. In order to
keep the wiring neat and make it harder to find, you may wish to wrap these
wires together in electrical tape or conceal them in tubing similar to what the
manufacturer used.
There are two acceptable ways of making a wire connection - solder con­nec­
tions and crimp connectors. When properly performed, either type of connection
is reliable and trouble-free. Regardless of whether you solder your connections
or you use mechanical type crimp-on connections, ensure that all connections
are mechanically sound and that they are insulated, especially when connecting
data lines in the vehicle.
Cheap electrical tape, especially when poorly applied, is not a reliable insulator. It often falls off in hot weather. Use good quality electrical tape or heat
shrink.
• Never twist-and-tape the wires together without soldering.
• Never use “fuse taps”, as they can damage fuse box terminals.
If you use tapping connectors such as T-Taps (not to be confused with ScotchLocks), avoid using them in higher-current applications (constant 12V, ground,
etc.) These connectors are inferior in quality and should be avoided.

Connect this wire to the provided toggle (override) switch as shown in figure
A. Connect the other wire from the toggle switch to the park/neutral switch in
the vehicle. This wire will test with ground with the gear selector either in PARK
or NEUTRAL. This will prevent the vehicle from accidentally being started while
in a drive gear. This input MUST rest at ground in order for the remote start
system to operate. Connected properly the vehicle will only start while in PARK
or NEUTRAL.
In some vehicles, the park/neutral position switch activates a factory starter lock
out that will not allow the starter to operate in a drive gear. In these vehicles,
connect this wire to the toggle switch as shown in figure B. Connect the other
wire from the toggle switch to chassis ground.
Important: Always perform the Safety Check section of this installation guide to
verify that the vehicle cannot be started in ANY drive gear and that the override
switch is functioning properly.

Remove the two 30-amp fuses prior to connecting these wires and do not replace them until the satellite has been plugged into the control module. These
wires are the source of current for pink ignition, orange accessory, purple starter,
and the coils for the relays in the relay pack. They must be connected to a high
current source. Since the factory supplies (+)12V to the key switch that is used to
operate the motor, it is recommended that these wires be connected there.
Note: If the factory supplies two separate (+) 12V feeds to the ignition switch,
connect one RED wire of the satellite to each feed at the switch.

Neutral safety switch interface
Some vehicles combine the column shift mechanism and the mechanical neutral
safety switch into one mechanical part. In these vehicles, it is impossible to interface the remote engine start system before the neutral safety switch. With this
type of vehicle, if the vehicle is left in a drive gear and the remote engine start
system is activated, the vehicle will move and may cause damage to persons
or property.
According to available information, vehicles known to be manufactured this
way are most General Motors trucks, sport utility vehicles and column shifting
passenger vehicles. Available information also indicates that pre-1996 Dodge
Dakota pickups with 2.5 liter motors are also manufactured this way.
GM vehicles that have the neutral safety switch built into the column shifter can
usually be identified by a purple starter wire. Typically, vehicles that use an
outboard mechanical switch use a yellow wire from the ignition switch to the
mechanical switch and a purple wire from the mechanical switch to the starter
itself. Remember, this is only a rule of thumb and is not intended as a substitute
for proper testing.
Important: Please see vehicle Safety Check section of this guide for testing
procedures.
Vehicles with the neutral safety switch built into the column shifter require that
the shifter be placed in park in order to remove the keys from the ignition. As
a result, it is possible to use the key-in-ignition sense switch to prevent remote
engine starting if the keys are in the ignition. (See General Motors Trucks, SUVs
and Column-Shifting Passenger Cars and Pre-1996 Dodge Dakota Pickups with
2.5 Liter Motors diagrams in this section on how to accomplish this.) The first
diagram applies to all General Motors vehicles as of the date of this guide’s
publication. The second diagram applies to all pre-1996 Dodge Dakota pickup
trucks with 2.5 liter motors. This solution has one side effect: If the customer
inserts the key in the ignition with the driver's door open, the remote engine
start system will shut down. If this interface is used, it is important to inform the
customer that the driver’s door must be closed before inserting the key into the
ignition when the remote engine start is active. This will allow the customer to
turn the key on and shut the remote engine start down by pressing the brake,
26

without the key sense wire shutting down the unit prematurely.
You must also connect the H2/4 BROWN (+) shut-down input to the yellow
wire on the relay satellite ribbon cable. This prevents the remote engine start
system from activating if the key is left in the “run” position. You must use
diodes to isolate the ignition circuit from the brake switch circuit as shown in
the diagram below.

start. If it does, re-check the connections.
As of the date of this guide’s publication, the following list describes the types
of vehicles that are known to have a mechanical neutral safety switch instead
of an electrical neutral safety circuit. The model years will vary from vehicle to
vehicle.

Bypassing GM vehicle anti-theft systems (VATS)
Vehicles with the GM VATS (Pass Key) systems have a resistor embedded in the
ignition key. If the VATS decoder module does not measure the proper resistance
when the vehicle is started, the starter and fuel pump may be disabled for up
to ten minutes.
The VATS wires will be two very light-gauge wires coming out of the steering
column. The colors of the wires vary, but they are often contained in orange tubing - either both will be white wires, or one wire will be purple/white and the
other white/black. Determine the value of the resistor in the key. Then follow the
diagram below to bypass VATS during remote engine start operation. If the BLUE
status output from the relay satellite has been programmed for factory security
re-arm, then use the (H3/5) BLUE/WHITE 2nd status output from the control
module to control the relay.
Note: When connecting to the VATS wires, it is not important which wire is
cut.

1995 and newer, VATS (immobilizers)
1995 and newer vehicle anti-theft systems (immobilizers) require a bypass module. The bypass module allows for easy interfacing, while still maintaining the
OEM system’s integrity.
passlock I and passlock II (PL-1 and PL-2)
The Passlock I and Passlock II systems can be found in the following General
Motors vehicles:
• ‘95 and newer Cavalier and Sunfire
• ‘96 and newer Achieva, Grand Am, and Skylark
• ‘97 and newer Intrigue, Malibu, and Cutlass
• ‘98 and newer trucks, vans, SUVs
• ‘99 and newer Alero
• 2000 and newer Impala and Saturn
•
Passlock I and II systems are VATS-evolved. Passlock systems still rely on the Rcode to start, but the pellet is no longer placed in the key. The resistor can now
be found in the key switch. This allows for a greater number of possible R-codes.
In addition, Passlock systems require “seeing” the correct R-code at the correct
time. To bypass Passlock I and II, p/n 556L(W) or p/n XK06 is required.
passkey III (PK-3), transponder-based systems
The

Passkey III system can be found in the following vehicles:
‘97 and newer Park Avenue
‘98 and newer Cadillac
‘99 and newer U vans, Transport, Montana, and Silhouette
2000 and newer Grand Prix, Lesabre, Monte Carlo, Lumina, Bonneville
2001 and newer Aurora, Aztek and Rendezvous
© 2008 Directed Electronics. All rights reserved.
Other transponder-based systems include: Acura, BMW, Dodge/Chrysler/
Jeep, Ford, Honda, Infinity, Mazda, Mercedes, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Toyota,
Volkswagon, and Volvo.
PK-3 and the transponder-based systems use a transponder system that locks out
the ignition and fuel system. This transponder system is comprised of two parts.
The first part, the transceiver, circles the key switch and is activated when the
key is placed in the key switch or turned to the run position. Upon activation,
the transceiver will excite the transponder, which is located (but not visible) in
the head of the ignition key. The key transponder will then send a unique code
back to the transceiver for evaluation. If the code matches a valid code of the
system, the vehicle will be allowed to start. Most of these transponder-based
systems can be bypassed using p/n 556U(W). Some may require additional parts
from the vehicle manufacturer. Consult you dealer for the applications. For most
Ford PATS transponders, p/n 555P, 1100F or XK04 can be used.

Tachometer settings
➤ Intelli-Tach
To program Intelli-Tach:
1.
2.
3.
4.
After the install is complete, remote start the car.
If the car does not start on the first attempt, let the remote start attempt
again.
Once the car starts, let it run until the parking lights come on.
When the parking lights come on, shut off the remote start with the remote
- that's it! Intelli-Tach is programmed.
To reset Intelli-Tach, go into the remote programming grid and choose option
#4. Intelli-Tach cannot be reset with the ProSecurity Programmer.
Intelli-Tach handles disengaging the starter motor during remote starting – it does
not address over-rev. If the customer wants to have the over-rev protection capability, now listed as optional in the owner’s guide, the tach wire must be connected. This may involve more installation shop charges than initially quoted.
Important: If the Intelli-Tach mode over cranks or doesn't
crank the vehicle long enough to start and run the car, use the
ProSecurity Programmer to add or subtract the starter output
time. You can adjust the output time in increments of 50mSec
of the learned time using the ProSecurity Programmer.

➤ Tach learning
To learn the tach signal:
1. Start the vehicle with the key.
2. Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Program
switch.
3. After 3 seconds the LED will light constant when the
tach signal is learned.
4. Release the Program switch.

Programming jumpers
➤Light flash (+) / (-) polarity
This jumper is used to determine the light flash output polarity. In the (+) position,
the on-board relay is enabled and the unit will output (+)12V on the WHITE
wire, H1/2. In the (-) position, the on-board relay is disabled. The WHITE wire,
H1/2, will supply a 200mA (-) output suitable for driving factory parking light
relays
NOTE: For parking light circuits that draw 10 amps or more, the internal jumper
must be switched to a (-) light flash output. P/N 8617 or a standard automotive
SPDT relay must be used on the H1/9 light flash output harness wire.

➤ Tach threshold On/Off
In most cases, this jumper can be left in the Off position. Some new vehicles use
less than 12 volts in their ignition systems. The unit may have trouble learning the
tach signal in these vehicles. Changing the jumper to the On setting changes
the trigger threshold of the digital tach circuit so that it will work with these type
vehicles.

Operating settings learn routine
The system features programmed dictates how the unit operates. Due to the
number of features, the features have been divided into two menus. It is possible
to access and change any of the feature settings using the Override switch.
However, this process can be greatly simplified by using a ProSecurity Programmer. The remote coding may be locked if previously programmed using the
ProSecurity Programmer. If the horn generates one long honk when attempting to
program the unit, the remote coding is locked and must be unlocked using the
ProSecurity Programmer before proceeding.
1. Key. Turn the ignition on, and then off.
2. Select menu. Press and hold the Program switch.
When the LED flashes once and the horn honks, Menu

2-1 Engine Checking Intelli-Tach: (1) When set to “Intelli-Tach” (1) the remote
start monitors the cranking voltage of the vehicle and sets it as a reference point.
Fifteen seconds after the crank output sequence the remote start checks the voltage again to determine if the vehicle is running.
When set to voltage, (2) the unit cranks the starter for the programmed time and
then attempts to sense that the engine is running by detecting an increase in voltage. If programmed Off (3) the vehicle cranks for the programmed crank time.
The tach setting or voltage setting is not checked to verify that the car is running.
In the OFF setting, if the vehicle fails to start, the ignition stays on for the run duration. Using tach or either of the voltage settings is recommended.
When set to Tachometer, (4) the unit references the learned tach signal to disengage the starter. In addition it will monitor the RPM and shut down if the engine
RPM is too high or too low.
Important: The tach wire must be connected and programmed for the manual
transmission mode to work.
2-2 Run Time 12 (1), 24 (2) 60 (3) MINUTES: Selects the time in minutes that
the system will operate the engine until the system “times out”. The system may
be shut down using the remote or any of the shutdowns at any time. Using the
ProSecurity Programmer the run time can be programmed for any duration from
1-60 minutes.
2-3 Parking Lights Constant: In the default setting, the parking lights will come
ON solid, when the vehicle is remote started. In the two- flash setting the parking lights will flash during the remote start runtime..

2-5 Activation Pulse One: This allows the system to use 1, 2 or 3 pulses to
activate the remote start sequence. The default setting is 1-pulse.
Note: This setting affects both the input wire and the remote control.
2-6 2nd—IGNITION/ACCESSORY OUTPUT: This will allow the PINK/WHITE
to be used as a 2nd ignition or a 2nd accessory.
2-7 Accessory State During Wait-To-Start OFF: This feature will allow the selection of the accessory output to be ON or OFF during wait-to-start. Use the
two-honk setting for On.
2-8 2nd STATUS OUTPUT—NORMAL/LATCHED/PULSED: If programmed to
status mode, this output will turn on when the remote engine start is activated. In
this mode the output can be programmed to a latched or a pulsed output. The
pulsed output turns the defogger ON. When programmed to the latched output
the status will only stay active for 10 minutes. Both outputs activate 10 seconds
after remote engine start.
2-9 Anti-Grind On: With the anti-grind On (default) the ground-when-locked
output will be active during remote start operation. This activates the optional
starter kill relay and prevents the customer from re-cranking the car with the key,
when doing key takeover. If accessories such as a voice module or window
module are added to the unit, it may be necessary to use the two-honk setting
to program this feature OFF.
2-10 Diesel Timer—Wait-To-Start Input - Timed 0,15, 30, 45 SECONDS:
Default is 0 second delay. Also available is a delay of 15 (2), 30 (3), or 45(4)

Safety check
Before vehicle reassembly, the remote start system must be checked to ensure safe
and trouble-free operation. The following test procedure must be used to verify
proper installation and operation of the system. The installation must be completed before testing, including connection to the brake switch and hood switch.
1.
2.
3.
Test the BRAKE shutdown circuit: With the vehicle in Park (P), activate the
remote start system. Once the engine is running, press the brake pedal.
The engine should shut down immediately. If the engine continues to run,
check the brake circuit connection.
Test the HOOD PIN shutdown circuit: With the vehicle in Park (P), open the
hood. Activate the remote start system. The vehicle should not start. If the
starter engages, check your hood pin and connections.
Test the NEUTRAL SAFETY shutdown circuit.
Important: Make sure there is adequate clearance to the
front and rear of the vehicle before attempting this test.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
Make sure the hood is closed and no other shutdown circuits are active.
Set the emergency brake.
Turn the ignition key to run position but do not start the engine.
Put the vehicle in Drive (D).
Put your foot over the brake pedal but do not press down on it. Be ready
to step on the brake to shutdown the remote start system.
Activate the remote start system.
•
If the starter engages, immediately step on the brake to shut down the
system. If it does engage, recheck the neutral safety input connection. The
vehicle may use a mechanical neutral safety switch. (See H2/1 BLACK/
WHITE neutral safety switch input in Remote Start Harness Wire Connection Guide section of this guide.)
•
If the starter does not engage, the test is complete. Once the system passes
the tests, the vehicle can be re-assembled and delivered. Do not the use
the remote start system or finalize the installation if it fails any of the safety
check tests.

Troubleshooting
•
The ignition comes on, but the starter will not crank.
Does it start with the key in the ignition? If so, does the vehicle have a VATS
Pass-Key system?
Will it start with the brake pedal depressed? (Make sure to disconnect the
brake shutdown when performing this test.) If so, it may have a brake/
starter interlock.
Is the correct starter wire being energized? Check by energizing it yourself
with a fused test lead.
•
The starter cranks for six seconds but does not start.
Either the wrong ignition wire is being energized, the system’s ignition and
accessory wires have been connected backwards, or the vehicle has two
ignition circuits. Try activating the unit with the ignition key in the “run” position. If the vehicle then runs normally, retest your ignition system.
•
The starter continues to crank even though the engine has started.
Has the tach wire been learned? See the
this guide.
Tach Learning
section of
Is the tach wire receiving the correct information? Either the wrong tach
wire has been used, or a bad connection exists.
•

3.
The remote start will not activate
Check the harnesses and their connections. Make sure that the harnesses
are completely plugged into the remote start module. Make sure there are
good connections to the vehicle wiring.
Check voltage and fuses on the main 12-pin harness and on the heavy
gauge remote start harness.
Check diagnostics. The diagnostics will tell you which shutdown is active
or not connected.

The remote start will activate, but the starter never engages.
Check for voltage on the purple starter wire two seconds after the remote
start becomes active. If there is voltage present, skip to Step 4. If there is
not voltage present, advance to Step 2.
Check the 30A fuses.
If the gray/black wait-to-start wire is detecting ground upon activation, the
starter will not crank.
Make sure the purple starter wire is connected on the starter side of the
optional starter kill/anti-grind relay.
Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? Some immobilizer systems will not
allow the vehicle to crank if active.
Check connections. The heavy gauge remote start input wires on the
heavy gauge 10-pin connector should have a solid connection. “T-taps”
or “scotch locks” are not recommended for any high current heavy gauge
wiring.
The vehicle starts, but immediately dies.
Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? The vehicle’s immobilizer will cut
the fuel and/or spark during unauthorized starting attempts.
Is the remote start programmed for Intelli-Tach voltage sense? If so, the
crank time may not be set high enough. Voltage sense will not work on
some vehicles.
Check diagnostics. Sometimes a shutdown will become active during
cranking or just after cranking.
The vehicle starts, but the starter keeps running.
Is the system programmed for engine checking off or Intelli-Tach voltage
sense? When programmed for either of these features, the engine cranks
for the pre programmed crank time regardless of how long it takes for the
vehicle to actually start. Adjust to a lower cranking time.
Was the Tach Learn successful? The LED must light solid and bright to
indicate a successful learn.
Make sure that there is a tach signal at the purple/white tach input wire
of the remote start. If there is not a tach signal, recheck the connection to
the vehicle’s tach wire and make sure the wire is not broken or shorted to
ground leading to the remote start.
