Out of range notification
If a command is issued from the remote, but the remote is beyond the range of the vehicle to receive the command, the
remote will respond with an Out of Range notification. If this occurs, the remote will Blink rapidly the transmit indicator,
turn on the F indicator and play the error tone.
Since conditions will vary in different areas (i.e.: Weather, RF interference, etc) range may be affected and require you to
be closer to the vehicle for successful transmission.
System maintenance
The system requires no specific maintenance. Your remotes are powered by small coin cell lightweight 3-volt lithium
batteries that will last approximately one year under normal use. The 2-way remote uses two CR2016 cell batteries and
the 1-way remote uses one CR2032 cell battery. When the battery begins to weaken, the operating range will be reduced.
Low battery indicator
When the batteries are low on the 2-way remote it will emit two groups of beeps, the LED will flash, and the alarm will
emit an additional chirp to let you know it’s time to change the battery. When the battery is low on the 1-way remote, the
remote responds the same, but without the LED flash.
The Arm/Disarm chirps should be programmed ON for the alarm to emit any additional chirps during disarming. Ask
your authorized dealer if you have any questions.
Battery replacement
Slide the door up to expose the battery beneath the holder. Remove the expired battery. Place the new battery into the
remote control. When power is returned the remote control is ready for use.
Remote control programming
The 2-way remote control has menus for programming the remote to the system control module including adjusting the
control module onboard shock sensor, and for configuring the remote control user features.
To program the remote user features:
1. Press and hold the
button for 12 seconds: (at 3 seconds ignore the Car number indicator.)
2. The remote emits one long beep, and the Transmit LED turns on. This indicates the Main menu.
3. Press and hold the
button for 1.5 seconds:
The remote beeps two-times, and the Transmit LED blinks two-times and stays on. You are now in the Remote
Configuration menu.
The Arm, Disarm, Remote Start & Aux LEDs will turn ON, and/or blink to indicate the current remote feature
configuration. When the LED is ON, the feature is ON.

Warning – Safety first!
The following safety warnings must be observed at all times:
Due to the complexity of this system, installation of this product must only be performed by an authorized Directed dealer.
When properly installed, this system can start the vehicle via a command signal from the remote control transmitter.
Therefore, never operate the system in an enclosed area or partially enclosed area without ventilation (such as a garage).
When parking in an enclosed or partially enclosed area or when having the vehicle serviced, the remote start system must
be disabled using the installed toggle switch. It is the user’s sole responsibility to properly handle and keep out of reach
from children all remote control transmitters to assure that the system does not unintentionally remote start the vehicle.
THE USER MUST INSTALL A CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR IN OR ABOUT THE LIVING AREA ADJACENT TO
THE VEHICLE. ALL DOORS LEADING FROM ADJACENT LIVING AREAS TO THE ENCLOSED OR PARTIALLY
ENCLOSED VEHICLE STORAGE AREA MUST AT ALL TIMES REMAIN CLOSED. These precautions are the sole
responsibility of the user.
Remote starters on manual transmission vehicles operate differently than those with automatic transmission because you
must leave your car in neutral. You must read this Owner’s Guide to familiarize yourself with the proper procedures
regarding manual transmission remote starters. If you have any questions, ask your installer or contact Directed at 1-800753-0600.

•
•
•
Leave the vehicle in neutral and be sure no one is standing in front or behind the vehicle.

Use of this product in a manner contrary to its intended mode of operation may result in property damage, personal injury,
or death. (1) Never remotely start the vehicle with the vehicle in gear, and (2) Never remotely start the vehicle with the
keys in the ignition. The user must also have the neutral safety feature of the vehicle periodically checked, wherein the
vehicle must not remotely start while the car is in gear. This testing should be performed by an authorized Directed dealer
in accordance with the Safety Check outlined in the product installation guide. If the vehicle starts in gear, cease remote
start operation immediately and consult with the authorized Directed dealer to fix the problem.
After the remote start module has been installed, contact your authorized dealer to have him or her test the remote start
module by performing the Safety Check outlined in the product installation guide. If the vehicle starts when performing the
Neutral Safety Shutdown Circuit test, the remote start unit has not been properly installed. The remote start module must
be removed or the installer must properly reinstall the remote start system so that the vehicle does not start in gear. All
installations must be performed by an authorized Directed dealer.
OPERATION OF THE REMOTE START MODULE IF THE VEHICLE STARTS IN GEAR IS CONTRARY TO ITS
INTENDED MODE OF OPERATION. OPERATING THE REMOTE START SYSTEM UNDER THESE CONDITIONS MAY
RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE OR PERSONAL INJURY. YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY CEASE THE USE OF THE
UNIT AND SEEK THE ASSISTANCE OF AN AUTHORIZED Directed DEALER TO REPAIR OR DISCONNECT THE
INSTALLED REMOTE START MODULE. DIRECTED WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE OR PAY FOR
INSTALLATION OR REINSTALLATION COSTS.

Manual transmission
If the vehicle has manual transmission the proper steps must be followed before leaving the parked vehicle or the remote
start feature is disabled.
1. Put the transmission in neutral.
2. Press on the vehicle’s foot brake.
3. Apply the emergency brake.
4. Release the vehicle’s foot brake.
Pressing the brake again after this step will disable the remote start feature.
5. Within 15 seconds activate the remote start from the remote.
6. The parking lights will flash confirming that the remote start is active.
7. Turn off the ignition (the car should stay running when key is turned off).
8. Exit the vehicle.
9. Arm the alarm (the vehicle should shut off when arming the system).
You can now remote start the vehicle. If a door is opened or if the alarm is triggered before the next remote start activation
the system will not remote start.
To drive your vehicle after it has been remote started:
1. Get in without stepping on the brake.
2. Insert the ignition key and turn it to the ON position.
3. Now, step on the brake.
The remote control will play the remote start shutdown tone. You have now taken direct control from the remote start
system.
Power save mode
System
Your system will automatically enter Power Saver Mode while armed after a period of time in which no operation has been
performed. This lowers the current draw on the vehicle’s battery. Power Saver Mode takes over under the following
conditions:
Power Saver when the system is armed: After the system has been armed for 24 hours the LED will flash at half its
normal rate, decreasing the system’s current draw.
2-way remote control
Your 2-way remote control has a feature called remote power save mode. When programmed ON under remote options,
the remote will conserve power by disabling the paging function if unused for more than 72 hours. Pressing any button on
the remote will restore the paging function.
The default setting is ON. See Remote control programming section of this guide or ask your dealer for details on how to
program.
