Your Keyless Entry System has many features and available options some of which must
be selected at time of installation. For your reference, the list on the back page of this
manual shows what features and options have been installed with this particular system. Consult your installing dealer for options that may have been installed and are not
listed.
REMOTE DOOR LOCKING - ACTIVE
1. Turn the engine off, exit the vehicle, and close all doors.
2. Press and release the lock button of your key chain transmitter one time, the doors will
lock, the parking lights will flash once, the vehicle's horn (or optional siren) will chirp once
and the dash mounted LED will begin to flash slowly confirming the system is locked.
SILENT LOCKING - ACTIVE
1. Turn the engine off, exit the vehicle and close all doors.
2. Press and hold the lock button of your key chain transmitter for two seconds, the doors
will lock, the parking lights will flash once and the dash mounted LED will begin to flash
slowly confirming the system is locked. The horn or optional siren will not chirp.
BACKUP PASSIVE OPERATION (AUTOMATIC)
If the passive arming feature has been selected:
Turn the engine off, exit the vehicle and close all doors.
The dash mounted LED will immediately begin to flash rapidly indicating that the 30 second
passive arming timer has begun.
If any entry point is opened during the 30 second arming cycle, arming will be suspended.
When all entry points are closed, the arming cycle will begin again.
At the end of the 30 seconds, the parking lights will flash once, the vehicle's horn (or optional
siren) will chirp once, and the dash mounted LED will begin to flash slowly confirming the
system is armed. If the horn (or optional siren) did not sound when arming, then the chirps
have been turned off. Please refer to the section titled "Eliminating the Arm/Disarm
Chirps" later in this manual. Passive door locking is a selectable feature. The doors may or
may not lock passively dependent upon the setup during installation.
PROTECTION WHILE THE SYSTEM IS ARMED
If the optional Starter Interrupt relay has been installed, then whenever the system is armed,
the vehicle starter circuit is disabled, even with the ignition key, the vehicle will not start.
Whenever the system is armed, the dash mounted LED will slowly flash. This serves as a
visual deterrent to a potential thief. This LED is a very low current light emitting diode and will
not cause the battery to drain even if left unattended for long periods of time.
UNLOCKING THE SYSTEM
As you approach the vehicle, press and release the unlock button on the keychain transmitter,
the doors will unlock, the parking lights will flash two times, the vehicle horn (or optional
siren) will chirp twice and the dash mounted LED will turn off. If you have the optional entry
illumination circuit installed, the interior light will turn on for 30 seconds or until the ignition key
is switched on.
Note: If the passive arming mode was selected at time of installation, the dash mounted
LED will start flashing rapidly indicating that the system is rearming. Opening any
door will suspend the automatic arming.
SILENT UNLOCKING
1. As you approach the vehicle, press and hold the unlock button of your key chain
transmitter for two seconds, or until the system responds.
The doors will unlock, the parking lights will flash twice and the dash mounted LED will turn
off, confirming that the system is disarmed. The vehicle horn (or optional siren) will not
chirp. If you have the optional entry illumination circuit installed, the interior light will turn on
for 30 seconds or until the ignition key is switched on.

Note: If the passive arming mode was selected at time of installation, the dash mounted
LED will start flashing rapidly indicating that the system is rearming. Opening any
door will suspend the automatic arming.
OPTIONAL ACCESS GUARD ( Two Step Unlock )
If the optional 2-step unlock feature was installed, then only the driver's door will unlock after
the first press of the unlock button. If you want to unlock all doors, you can simply press the
unlock button of the keychain transmitter a second time.
Note: Two Step unlocking is an optional feature that must be wired upon installation.
VALET / PROGRAM / MANUAL OVERRIDE SWITCH
The valet switch allows you to temporarily prevent the system from arming, eliminating the
need to hand your keychain transmitter to parking attendants or garage mechanics. When
the system is in the valet mode, it will not passively arm or activate the starter interrupt
circuit. However, all keyless entry features, as well as the remote panic feature will remain
operational. To enter the valet mode:
1. Start with the valet switch in the "off" position
2. Turn the ignition switch to the "on" position.
3. Flip the valet switch to the "on" position.
The dash mounted LED will turn on solid (not flashing) indicating that the valet mode has
successfully been entered.
To return to the normal mode of operation, move the valet switch to the "off" position at any
time the ignition switch is in the on position.
Note: In the event that you lose your keychain transmitter or the transmitter fails to operate
the keyless entry system, the valet switch can be used to override the optional Starter
Interrupt, and therefore allow the engine to be started. To override system:
1. Open the door with the vehicle's door key.
2. Turn the ignition switch to the on position.
3. Flip the valet/override switch to the on position. LED will turn on solid.
The system will disarm, allowing the engine to be started and the vehicle to be operated
normally. Always remember to move the valet switch to the off position to allow the passive
arming and optional starter interrupt features to be operable the next time you park the
vehicle.
ELIMINATING THE LOCK/UNLOCK CHIRPS
You can selectively eliminate the normal lock and unlock chirps by holding the transmitter button
slightly longer when locking and unlocking. This will prevent the horn/siren chirps for one
lock or unlock cycle. If you find this inconvenient and wish to eliminate these chirps permanently,
1. Start with the valet switch in the off position.
2. Turn the ignition switch "on" then "off".
3. Within 10 seconds of turning off the ignition, flip the valet switch on, "off", "on", "off",
"on", "off".
4. If the chirps were on before you started, the siren will emit 2 short chirps indicating
that the chirps are now off. If the chirps were off before you started, the siren will
emit one short chirp indicating that the chirps are now on.
REMOTE PANIC OPERATION
The lock or unlock button of your keychain transmitter also serves as a panic button and will
cause the vehicle horn (or optional siren) to sound on demand. To use the panic feature, you
must be within the system's maximum operating range. In an emergency situation, to use the
panic feature, press and hold the lock or unlock button of your keychain transmitter for 3
seconds. This will cause the lights to flash, the vehicle horn (or optional siren) to sound, and
if the optional interior illumination circuit was installed, the interior lights to flash. The panic
mode will continue for 30 seconds and then reset.

To disengage the panic feature before the 30 seconds are up, press and hold either the lock
or unlock button of your keychain transmitter for 3 seconds or press the option button
momentarily. The doors can be unlocked or locked while in "panic" mode by momentarily
pressing the lock or unlock button respectively.
ADDITIONAL REMOTE FUNCTION CHANNEL 2
The system has an additional output, (Channel 2) , that can be connected to a number of
different optional accessories. Some of the more common uses for this channel are:
 Remote Trunk Release
 Remote Window Close
To operate the accessory associated with Channel 2, press and hold the option button of
your keychain transmitter for four seconds.
NOTE: You may access the Channel 2 command regardless of whether the system is
"locked" or "unlocked", but not when the ignition switch is in the on position. This
is to prevent the output from accidentally opening the vehicle's trunk when the
vehicle is in motion.
ADDITIONAL REMOTE FUNCTION CHANNEL 3
The system has an additional output, (Channel 3), that can be connected to a number of
different optional accessories. Some of the more common uses for this channel are:
 Remote Engine Start
 Remote Window Close
 Remote Garage Door Interface
To operate the accessory associated with Channel 3, simply press the Option button of your
keychain transmitter which was configured and programmed for this function.
NOTE: The channel 3 output will remain active for as long as the transmitter button is
pressed. Certain accessories may take advantage of the extended output capability
of this channel. To discontinue the output, simply release the transmitter button.
IGNITION DOOR LOCKING/UNLOCKING
The system is capable of being programmed for the added safety and security of ignition
controlled door locking and unlocking. These features are separate, so the unit may be
programmed for one, or both, or neither.
When the ignition door locking feature is programmed, the system will cause all door locks
to lock whenever the ignition switch is turned from the off to on position, (providing that all
doors are closed at that time). All doors will lock approximately 3 seconds after the vehicle's
ignition switch is turned on. This is a nice feature for maintaining the personal safety of the
occupants of the vehicle, in an effortless and automatic manner.
When the ignition door unlocking feature is programmed, the system will cause all door locks
to unlock whenever the ignition switch is turned from the on to off position. All doors will
unlock immediately after the vehicle's ignition switch is turned off. If 2 Step unlock was
installed, only the driver's door will unlock.
As stated these features are programmed separately, so you may chose to use one, both,
or neither. Please consult with your dealer to consider your options.
TWO STEP UNLOCK (ACCESS GUARD)
By pressing the unlock button of the keychain transmitter as you would normally, (Please see
the section titled "Unlocking The System", earlier in this manual), the system will disarm, and
only the driver's door will unlock. If however, you should then decide instead that you
want all doors to unlock, you can simply press the unlock button a second time and all doors
will unlock.
