This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two
conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must
accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
NOTE: The manufacturer is not responsible for any radio or TV interference caused by
unauthorized modifications to this equipment. Such modifications could void the user's
authority to operate the equipment.
Before You Get Started…
♦ On vehicles with a manual Transmission,
always ensure that all Doors will get the Unit out
of Ready Mode. Switch the wire used so that it
is triggered by all Doors.
♦ 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.
♦ Remove courtesy light fuse, if possible, to
prevent battery drain.
♦ The Programming Assistance Button
(A.k.a. PAB.)
The PAB is mounted on the side of the Unit.
This push button mimics the Hood-Pin switch in
order to avoid having to get out of the vehicle
and pressing the Hood-Pin switch. The PAB will
work only when the Hood is up.
♦ Inspect vehicle for any body damage or
electrical problems
♦ Always solder and tape all connections.
♦ Keep the Transceiver 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.
♦ Do not disconnect the battery on vehicles
equipped with air bags and anti-theft radios.
Installation Guide
♦ 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, the Hood Switch and the
warning label
♦ When wiring in parallel, make sure to 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 Out when Running
wire: At the junction point, where Ground Out
when running “splits” and goes to each device,
a diode is inserted on each of those lines.
Multiple or Separate Door pin Connections:
When joining all door pins together to the Door
pin input wire of the Module, each wire must
be isolated with a diode to prevent feedback.
N.B.: The above examples reflect common
situations where diodes are use to isolate.
Please note that there are numerous other
scenarios where diode isolation is required.
♦ Always make sure that any external relays
or modules added to the Remote Starter
Module are properly fused, and diode isolated.
♦ When testing the Shock Sensor, never test
on glass with an opened hand, and never hit
glass hard enough as to break it. When
testing on Metal or plastic, make sure the
testing does not result in damage to the
P.3
vehicle (i.e.: dents, broken glass, damaged
trims, etc.).
♦ Vehicles equipped with daytime running
lights may not allow the installer to view
certain programming results since the daytime
running lights do no go out (Note: The
Parking Light output relay in the Module gives
two “clicks” per flash, 1 click for ON and 1
click for OFF).
♦ Parking Light flashes referred to in this
manual refer to the Parking Light output of the
Module and not that of the vehicle.
Harness Description
When connecting the Module, it is important to make sure the connector with the Ground wire is
connected first before making the 12-volt connections. Should the unit be powered 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 grounded. To avoid any accident, it is a recommended
to pull out the fuses from their sockets before the installation, and to put them back during the very
last steps.

Tachometer
input
This wire must be connected to bare, unpainted metal (the Chassis or true
Body ground). It is preferable to use a factory ground bolt rather than a selftapping screw. Screws tend to get loose or rusted over time and can
cause erratic problems.
This wire tells the Module if the Engine is running or not. It requires at least
1.8 volts (AC) and 1.5 Hz (or faster) at idle. Common Tach references are:
the negative side of an injector, the negative side of an Ignition Coil,
Camshaft sensor, Crankshaft sensor or the Engine Control Module (ECM).
NOTE: A Tach signal that is too low will cause the Module to “over
crank” and a Tach signal that is too high will cause the Module to
“under crank”.

wire should be +12 V only while the Brake Pedal is pressed. This input will
shut down the Remote Starter if the Brake Pedal is pressed. It is also used
for programming and therefore it is essential that it is installed.
This wire provides a +12 V output (15 A max.) and must be connected to
the Parking Light wire that tests +12 V when the Parking lights are ON.
Note: Ensure that the voltage does not vary when the dimmer control
switch is turned up or down. If this is the case, it is not the right wire.
There is also a negative Parking Light output. Only one of these
two different outputs needs to be connected.

This input should be used in vehicles that use a positive-switching
Dome Light circuit. Connect to a Dome Light wire testing +12 V with a
Door open.
CAUTION! You can only use a negative or a positive connection. In
other words, only the NEGATIVE DOOR INPUT or the POSITIVE
DOOR INPUT wire is connected. It is essential that the Module be
connected in such a way as to allow each one of the Doors to turn off
Ready Mode: the driver-side Door Pin does not constitute by itself a
sufficient connection
The unit is equipped with a selectable passive- or active-arming
Starter Kill circuit that will immobilize the vehicle when the system is
armed. This wire will provide a constant 500-mA negative output when
the system is armed (locked by remote) or if remote started. This wire
should be connected to a Single Pole Double-Throw Relay (This wire
will connect to Pin 85, on the Relay, and Pin 86 will be connected to the
Ignition wire).
A second benefit of the Starter Kill is the Anti-Grind feature. When the
vehicle has been remote started the Anti-Grind prevents the starter
motor from re-engaging when the ignition key is inserted in the Ignition
switch and accidentally turned to the CRANK position (The Starter Kill
output becomes active during remote starts).
N/A
+12 V Siren output. Connect to the positive side of the Siren or the can
be used for OEM Horn Honk control (a relay may be needed).
This is a 500-mA constant ground output that is active when the vehicle
is running under a remote start. The output becomes active at the same
time as the Ignition, and becomes inactive when the Module shuts
down (i.e.: runtime has expired or the STOP button is pressed, etc.). The
output can be used to activate external relays, bypass kits, etc.
CAUTION! If multiple relays or modules are connected to the Ground
Out wire, ensure that they are all diode isolated in order to avoid
feedback and damaging the vehicle.

(+) Glowplug Light
input
Installation Guide
This input should be used in vehicles that use a negative-switching
Dome Light circuit. Connect to a Dome Light wire testing ground with a
Door open.
CAUTION! You can only use a negative or a positive connection. In
other words, only the NEGATIVE DOOR INPUT or the POSITIVE
DOOR INPUT wire is connected. It is essential that the Module be
connected in such a way as to allow each one of the Doors to turn off
Ready Mode: the driver-side Door Pin does not constitute by itself a
sufficient connection.
This positive input will monitor the Glow Plug Light in Diesel Mode: it will
wait until the Glow Plug Light goes out to crank the Engine. Connect to
the side of the Glow Plug Light that is positive when the Light is on.
Note: In Diesel Mode there is a 18-sec. crank timing delay (or
approximately 25-sec. if the run time is set to 30 min.): if the Glow Plug
Light is still on after the delay expires, the Module will proceed to start
the Engine.
(Also known as the “wait-to-start light”.) The purpose of the Glow-plug
circuit on diesel vehicles is to pre-heat 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 Glow-plug
input wire of the Module must be connected to the Glow-plug indicator
light of the vehicle. The Module will only accept positive Glow-plug input
signals, if the signal is negative, use a relay to invert its polarity. A diode
must be added between the negative Glow-plug 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 Glow-plug indicator light is still on.
• The Module will engage the Starter Motor as soon as the Glow-plug
light (+) goes out.
• Minimum waiting time is 3 seconds.
• Maximum waiting time is 25 seconds (approx.).
If no Glow-plug wire is found on the vehicle, the Glow-plug 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 of approximately
25 sec. (recommended).
• Keeping the Glow-plug input wire of the Module unconnected will
hold the ignition ON for the minimum waiting time (3 sec., not
recommended in very cold environments).
Connect the Glow-plug wire to the Ignition wire only after Tach has been
programmed (i.e.: Connecting the Glow-plug wire is one of the very last
steps in the installation process).

Flashing the Hood Pin
What is Flashing the Hood Pin?
It is a procedure that makes the Module go into the Programming Centre. Once the Module is in
the Programming Centre, the Installer has no more than 20 seconds to get into one of the submenus. Failure to do so will result in the Module exiting the Programming Centre and the
Installer will have to Flash the Hood Pin once more.
Remember: You can use the Programming
Assistance Button instead of the Hood Pin any time
the Hood is up.

The Programming
Assistance Button
(A.k.a. PAB.)
The PAB is located on the
side of the Module. This
push button mimics the
Hood-Pin switch in order to
avoid having to get out of
the vehicle and pressing the
Hood-Pin switch. The PAB
will work only when the
Hood is up.
How to Program the Transmitter.
1.
FLASH the Hood Pin Switch.
Before the 20 seconds have passed, turn the Ignition Key to the IGNITION ON (RUN) position.
Turn the IGNITION to OFF.
2.
Press and hold the LOCK button until the vehicle gives 5 flashes. The Module has
stored the Transmitter in its memory.
3.
Close the Hood, to exit.
Table 1
The Module has the ability to retain up to 4 different Transmitter codes; if a fifth Transmitter is
programmed, the code of the first Transmitter will be erased from memory. To erase all
Transmitter codes from memory, you must perform a Module reset (See “Resetting the
Module” on page 16 ).
To program the Transmitter on a second vehicle (Multi-car Operation),
you must press the TRUNK button (of the secondary Transmitter you wish to
program) during step 2 of transmitter programming.
How to Enter Options Programming 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 these procedures :
1. Flash the hood pin switch (see page 8)
– The parking lights will stay on for up to 20 seconds.
– Before the lights go out:
2. Press and hold the brake pedal and press one of the following buttons on the transmitter:
• LOCK
to access mode 1;
• UNLOCK
to access mode 2;
• TRUNK
to access mode 3;
• START/STOP to access mode 4.
The parking lights will flash and the horn will honk once (if configured), twice three times or
four times to confirm entry into a mode.
3. Release the brake pedal.
4. To exit programming centre, simply close the hood.

P.9
Note: The unit will stay in the selected programming mode until the hood pin-switch or the brake
pedal is pressed again. Therefore take your time to make the proper selection. Pressing the
brake pedal will take you back to the programming centre, where you can select a different mode.
Once you access a particular programming mode, you will automatically start at function 1. Once
you select one of the options of function 1, you will automatically be taken to the next function.
To select one of the five options of any given function, press the corresponding button on the
transmitter:
• LOCK button .............................to access option 1
• UNLOCK button .........................to access option 2
• TRUNK button ...........................to access option 3
• START button ............................to access option 4
• SHIFT then LOCK buttons ...........to access option 5
Accessing options
In each function, once an option has been selected the parking lights will flash 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 times
(depending on the selected option). Please note that the different functions within any particular
mode can only be accessed sequentially: the programming centre will move from function 1 to
function 2, then to function 3, and so on. Therefore, whenever you access a particular mode, be
prepared to re-configure all the functions of that mode in ascending order.

Table 3
Auto Tach Programming Procedure
NOTE: If no tach has been programmed and the start button is pressed, there will be no start
attempt and the vehicle will give 5 flashes. If another tach programming is required, simply
repeat the auto tach programming procedures. The module stores the tach setting, being auto
tach or conventional tach, until the module is reset.
This process can be carried out instead of the conventional tach programming procedure.
1. Make sure all the connections are done properly and that the module has been powered-up.
Installation Guide
P.11
2. With the hood up (ground on the hood pin line), start the vehicle using the key.
3. Let the engine reach proper idle speed
The parking light output from the module is activated when the vehicle starts and it will
shut off once the tach signal is detected.
4. Press and hold the brake pedal until the parking light output from the module flashes 5 times.
5. Turn the Ignition OFF. At this point, the tach setting has been programmed.
Table 4
Multi-Speed Tach Programming
No manual adjustments are necessary. However, you should go through the Tach programming
procedure every time a new Unit is installed.
1. FLASH the hood pin switch.
2. Press and hold the Brake Pedal.
• Press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously.
• The parking lights will flash 4 times the horn/siren will sound 4 times (if programmed).
• Release the brake pedal.
3. Start the vehicle and let it to reach regular engine-idle speed.
4. Once the vehicle is idling properly, press and hold the brake pedal until the parking lights
flash five times, release the brake pedal: the tach signal is now programmed.
• The Horn/Siren will sound 1, 2 or 3 times depending on the Tach mode which has
been detected.
Table 5
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 8)
2- Enter the programming centre.
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 6
Testing
Before putting back the vehicle together, it is recommended to check that the system operates
properly. The following testing procedures should be used to verify proper installation and
operation of the system. Before testing, make sure that all connections are soldered and that the
unit is plugged in.
1.
Remote-start the Engine and listen for Starter drag. If the Starter cranks for too
long, carry out another Tach learning procedure.
2.
Test Hood Switch shutdown: with the vehicle running under the Remote Starter,
open the Hood; the vehicle should shut down. If it does not shut down, check the
Hood Pin-switch and its connector.

Test the Brake shutdown circuit: With the vehicle running under the Remote
Starter, press and release the Brake Pedal. The Engine should shut down
immediately. If the Engine continues to run, check the Brake Switch connection.
OEM Alarm Control: Make sure the Module is able to arm and disarm the OEM
Alarm (if applicable).
Alarm Testing: Arm the vehicle and test the Hood Pin and each Door to make sure
that each one of these points triggers the Alarm.
Door Locks, Auxiliary Outputs and Trunk Testing: Make sure each of these
options respond to the Transmitter (if they were installed).
Shock sensors:
Mounting Shock Sensor: Mount the sensor in the most central location on the vehicle
as to allow the sensor to detect vibration equally from each side of the vehicle. Two
common places to mount the sensor are Wire harnesses or metal braces located under
the Dashboard/Center Console.
Setting: Turning the dial clockwise increases the sensor’s sensitivity and turning the
dial counter-clockwise decreases the sensor’s sensitivity.
Testing: Make sure the Hood and the Doors are closed. Arm the Alarm and wait
approximately 10 seconds to let the vehicle “settle”. A light “tap” on the vehicle should
NOT trigger either the Alarm or the Warn Away. A medium “tap” should trigger the
Warn Away. A hard “tap” should trigger the Alarm.
All vehicles are different and therefore transmit shock level differently, if you are unable
to set both zones to your satisfaction, referrer to the programming options to disable the
appropriate zone(s).
When the Engine is running after remote start the Shock Sensor will not trigger an
Alarm condition, although it will still produce warning chirps if Warn-away is enabled.
Two-Stage Disarm: When the vehicle is in an alarm condition, pressing the UNLOCK
button mutes the Siren, pressing the UNLOCK button a second time disarms the
Module.
Starter Kill option: Sit inside the vehicle with all the Doors closed. Arm the vehicle
and then try to start the vehicle with the key –it should not start. If the vehicle starts,
rewire the starter kill so it functions properly.
Valet Mode: Make sure the Module is able to enter and exit Valet Mode properly.
When setting the Module into Valet mode, the Starter Kill function is disabled, when
pressing LOCK the Doors will lock but the Starter Kill will not be activated. (Refer to
User Guide for more information on Valet Mode).
Idle Mode: Make sure the vehicle properly goes into Idle Mode.
Closing Up
Use tie-wraps or screws to properly secure the Module and keep the wiring away from any moving
parts such as the Parking Brakes or Steering Column Shafts. Mount all switches in good and
accessible locations where they do not risk getting kicked or hit accidentally. Any under hood
wiring should be split loomed and tie strapped away from moving parts and heat sources.
Always make all your connections before plugging in the Module. Keep in mind to plug the fuses
as the last step before the initial powering of the Module. Be sure to test all functions properly
before closing up the installation.
Make sure the Warning Label is applied on a visible place under the Hood.
Most comebacks are the result of misunderstandings about how a product works or performs. Take
the time to properly explain all functions and features to the customers before they leave the
premises. Doing this will save time and money.

Supplementary Information
Fifth Relay Output (2nd IGN or 2nd ACC or 2nd START)
This Remote Starter is equipped with a high-current programmable 5th relay onboard that can be
used to power a second Ignition, Accessory, or Start wire.
The Unit uses a series of jumpers; each set of jumper pins represents a function. In order to
activate any one of the three possible 2nd outputs, you must place the jumper (supplied) on one of
the three sets of pins and simply connect the 14 AWG wire to the second IGN or ACC or START wire of
the vehicle.
Caution!
Do not use more than one of the three
sets of jumper pins simultaneously.
The relay output rating on this Unit is
25A max output. Defective OEM
solenoid switches can sometimes draw
up to 50 or 60A, causing the 30A fuse
to blow. Using a digital voltmeter, check
the Starter wire for amperage when
vehicle is cranking.
Ignition-Controlled Door Locks
•
•
•
•
Ignition Lock disabled: turns OFF the Ignition Lock feature.
Ignition Lock enabled: locks all Doors when the key is in the ON position and the user
presses the Brake Pedal. Similarly, when the Ignition key is turned to the OFF position,
the Doors will unlock.
Ignition Lock Only: the system will only lock all Doors when the Ignition Key is turned
to the IGNITION ON (RUN) position and Brake Pedal is pressed.
Ignition Unlock Only: the system will unlock all Doors when the Key is turned to the
OFF position, provided the Ignition Key was in the IGNITION ON (RUN) position and the
Brake Pedal was pressed at least once.
Table 7
Secure Lock
For vehicles where the OEM Alarm can be controlled the through the OEM LOCK and UNLOCK wires,
Secure Lock saves the installer from connecting the ARM and DISARM wires and the LOCK and
UNLOCK wires to the OEM LOCK and UNLOCK wires.
Upon receiving a remote start signal the system will unlock the Doors (disarming the OEM Alarm);
1/2 sec after the remote start, the system will LOCK the Doors.
Please note: most factory Alarm systems will not rearm while the Engine is running but will lock
the Doors.
4 seconds after the Module shuts off (i.e.: runtime expired or pressing the STOP button), Secure
Lock will LOCK (once more) all the Doors of the vehicle and REARM the OEM Alarm.
Smart Secure Lock operates as follows:
P.14
Installation Guide
•
If the Alarm is armed and the Starter Kill is armed, a remote start signal will be
accompanied by an UNLOCK and a DISARM pulse preceding start-up. The system will LOCK and
arm again once the Engine is running.
•
If the Vehicle is initially unlocked, a remote start signal will start the Engine and enable
the Starter Kill without unlocking or locking the Doors.
Table 8
Turbo Mode
This Option allows turbochargers to idle down: after the user leaves the vehicle, the Engine will
keep running for 60 sec. and then shut down (It is a 1-minute Idle Mode).
Safe Start (Child Safety Mode)
Requires the user presses the START button on the Transmitter twice within 3 seconds in order to
start the vehicle.
If the special safe start mode is selected (swap start):
• To start the vehicle, press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously.
• Pressing the START button triggers AUX2.
START button becomes AUX2 trigger and the AUX2 button becomes the START trigger.
Table 9
Siren or Horn Chirps
The Siren can be set to any one of the following four Options:
Option 1 Warning Chirps: the arming and disarming of the car (LOCK or UNLOCK) will not
cause the Siren to chirp. While the vehicle is being armed, if a Zone is open, the
Siren will chirp 3 times. If the Alarm was set off, the user is notified by 4 siren
chirps after pressing the UNLOCK button.
Option 2: Full chirps (by default): pressing the LOCK button will lock all Doors, arm the
system and
• cause the Siren to chirp once if all Zones are closed.
• cause the Siren to chirp three times if a Zone is open.
Pressing the UNLOCK button will unlock and disarm the vehicle and:
• if no intrusion occurred, the Siren will chirp twice.
• if an intrusion occurred, the Siren will chirp 4 times.
Option 3: Open Zone Notification: if a Door is detected as open 10 sec. after arming, the
Horn/Siren will sound 3 times (Also used for vehicles with Dome Light Delay).
Option 4: Chirps disabled: the Siren will not chirp under any circumstance.

Table 11
Disarmed Notification
This feature will notify the user when the vehicle is left disarmed after Ignition is turned off, or
when the Module is disarmed after being previously armed, the opening or closing of a Door
will cause the Horn or the Siren to sound once after 10 sec. to warn the user that the vehicle
was left unprotected. Pressing LOCK or UNLOCK will cancel this timer.
Two-Stage Disarm
When the Siren is sounding, pressing UNLOCK will stop the siren – but without unlocking or
disarming the vehicle. You can disable this feature by selecting corresponding option in the
Passive or Active Function.
Shock Sense Bypass
When AUX 3 is programmed for Trunk with Disarm/Rearm option, and the Trunk pin from the
vehicle has been connected to the Door Pin input wire (diode isolated), it is not necessary to
press on UNLOCK to disarm the Alarm prior to pressing the TRUNK button.
When the Trunk is opened by remote control, the Door Zone/“Trunk pin” will be ignored; the
Shock Sensor will also be ignored until the Door Zone/”Trunk pin” closes. Monitoring will
resume 5 seconds after the Door Zone (Trunk pin) is closed.
Resetting The Module
The system is equipped with a reset function that allows the installer to erase all Transmitter
codes and return all programmed Options to the factory default values.
To reset the Module:
1.
FLASH the Hood pin switch.
2.
Before the 20 seconds have passed, Press the Valet Button 6 times or more, until
the Parking Lights start to flash.
