➜ step 1
Ground Wire
The BLACK (H1/5) wire on the main 8-pin harness is ground.
First strip back a ¾-inch section of the insulation off the BLACK
wire and crimp a ring terminal (not provided) to that wire.
Locate a clean, paint-free metal surface in the drivers kick panel.
Using a self-tapping screw, drill the screw with the ring terminal
to the metal area. Once screwed down, pull on the wire to ensure
a good connection.
note: More problems are attributed to poor ground connections than any other cause. Take extra care to ensure
the ground is a clean metal-to-metal contact and secure.

Constant Power and Ignition wires
Almost all power and ignition wires can be found behind the key
cylinder under the lower drivers side dash panel. Using the
appropriate hand tools, remove the lower dash panel using care
not to break any parts. If the panel does not come off easily
check for any additional screws you may have missed.
warning! On vehicles with air bags or supplemental restraint systems (SRS) you may
notice a bright yellow tube with small wires
in it marked SRS underneath the steering
column near the key cylinder. DO NOT
tamper or unplug these for any reason to
prevent costly damages to your vehicle or
personal injury. Tampering may cause
unintended deployment of airbags.
Once the lower dash panel has been removed, locate the ignition
harness at the back of the key cylinder. This is usually a group of
thicker wires. With the ignition harness exposed, use your LED
tester to find your power and ignition wires.
Place the black lead of the test probe to a clean metal surface in
14
© 2006 Directed Electronics
the kick panel area and secure it. Probe one of the thicker gauge
wires. The color and identity of your specific vehicle wiring can
be obtained at www.designtech-intl.com. With the key in the off
position, test the suspect wire. The constant power wire will illuminate the Red LED on the test probe.
warning! Before making any connection
to constant battery power make sure that
the two green 30 amp fuses are removed
from the fuse holders on the two thick red
wires (heavy gauge wires). Failure to do so
may cause fire or shorting of sensitive electrical components.

Once the constant power wire has been identified, solder the two
heavy gauge RED wires from the control module (relay heavy
gauge) to it and wrap the connection with electrical tape.
note: If the vehicle has two constant power wires, utilize
both constant power wires. Connect one of the heavy
gauge RED wires to one of the constant power wires and
the other heavy gauge RED wire to the other constant
power wire.
With the test probe black lead still in the kick panel, locate the
ignition wire in the same location. It will test differently than

www.designtech-intl.com Web site and place the red lead of the
test probe on the suspected wire. With the key in the off position
the probes LED will be off. Turn the key to the on position and
the LED tester will illuminate Red. Now watching your probe,
turn the key to the crank position. If the LED extinguishes this
is not an ignition wire but an accessory wire. If the wire tests
correctly, solder the thick PINK (4) wire of the heavy gauge wires
to it and wrap the connection with electrical tape.
If the vehicle requires more than one ignition as per the Web site
information follow the same test procedure and solder the thick
PINK/WHITE (6) wire of the heavy gauge wires to it and wrap
the connection with electrical tape. If your vehicle has only 1
ignition source, secure the PINK/WHITE out of the way.
If your vehicle requires more than two ignitions, an additional
relay (not provided) is required. Refer to the diagram below.

Accessory and Starter wires
The starter and accessory wires will be located in the same harness
as the ignition and constant power.
To find the accessory wire leave the LED tester black lead
connected to the metal ground, take the red lead and probe the
wire suspected to be the accessory. With the key off, your test
probe’s LED should be off. Turn the key to the on position and
the LED tester should be illuminated Red. Now turn the key to
the crank position. If you have the correct accessory wire the LED
will extinguish while the starter is cranking and return once the
key returns to the on position. If the wire tests correctly, strip the

wire. With the key in the off position the LED tester should be
extinguished in all key positions except the crank position. In
the crank position your LED tester should illuminate Red, and
will extinguish when the starter disengages.
note: Always check the Web site information on your
vehicle for warnings regarding the starter wire and check
engine lights. Some vehicles will trip a check engine light
if the starter wire is cut.
Once you locate the starter wire, cut the wire in half (ccheck the
web information before cutting) and try to start the vehicle. If
the vehicle does not start, the correct wire has been identified.
Reconnect both ends the starter wire while soldering the thick
VIOLET (1) wire of the heavy gauge wires to it and wrap the
connection with electrical tape.
Many Nissan vehicles have two starter wires. A relay (not provided)
is required to hook up the additional starter wire. Refer to the

with the red lead of your test probe. With the brake pedal at rest
the LED tester should be extinguished. While watching the test
probe, depress the brake pedal. The LED tester should illuminate Red. Once you have located the correct brake wire, solder
the small BROWN (H1/3) wire of the main harness to it and
wrap the connection with electrical tape.
warning! Do not use the vehicle until you
confirm the operation of the brake shutdown.
Installing the hood pin switch requires drilling a ¼-inch hole in the
metal lip under the hood. Choose a location that will allow the pin
switch to be depressed when the hood is closed. The pin switch has
a spade connector on the bottom for the wire connection.

Place the wire with the spade connector onto the pin switch and
run the wire into the vehicle’s passenger compartment through a
factory rubber grommet. Using a sharp, pointed object poke a
hole into the grommet and attach the wire to the object with
electrical tape. Pull the wire through the grommet taking extra
care to keep the wire away from any moving parts or anything
that will generate extreme heat. Once the wire is run into the
vehicle and secured from any moving parts, solder the wire to
the GRAY (H1/4) wire of the main harness and wrap the
connection with electrical tape.
warning! This wire MUST be connected. Do
not use the vehicle until you confirm the operation of the hood pin shutdown. Improper
operation could result injury or death.
The bypass toggle switch is designed to bypass the remote start
in an emergency or to disable the remote start functions
temporarily (i.e., for service on the vehicle or when parking in an
enclosed area). This switch is to be mounted in an easily accessible location in the passenger compartment.
Connect the toggle switch as shown below. The Gray (H1/4)
wire to the hood pin switch, and the Black wire from the switch
to ground. The toggle switch must be in the Off position for
normal operation.

Parking light flash
There are several different types of parking light circuits. The
following description is for a standard positive-triggered parking
light circuit, only. If the web vehicle information suggests a (-)
parking light circuit, the fusible jumper (under the sliding door
on the control module) must be moved to the opposite position.
The default position for this jumper is for a positive parking
light. Refer to the LED test probe procedures if you have a negative
parking light circuit.
note: When parking lights are connected, they will flash
for the whole time that remote start is active.

important! If the WEB vehicle information requires
using resistors for parking lights, contact Directed
Technical Support.
Using the web information on the vehicle, locate the suspected
wire and place the red lead of the test probe to a constant (+)12
volt source and secure it. Leave the black test probe lead in the
kick panel,. Probe the suspected wire with the test probe. With
the switch in the off position the test probe should have both
LEDs illuminated dimly. While watching the test probe LEDs,
turn the switch to the parking light position. The test probe’s
green LED should illuminate and the red LED should extinguish. While testing the suspected wire, run the dash dimmer
light control up and down—the voltage should NOT vary (the
green LED should stay illuminated and the red LED should stay
off ). If the voltage does vary, continue probing to find the
correct wire.
Once you have identified the correct wire, solder the WHITE
(H1/8) wire of the main harness to it and wrap the connection
with electrical tape.

➜ step 6
Door Locks
The system comes with a built in relay pack for door lock operation. When attempting to interface the power door locks with
your system it is important to understand that there are multiple
types of door locking systems in today's vehicles. To determine
your vehicle’s power door lock system, check the web information
on your vehicle.
If your door lock system is a different type than described in this
guide, go to www.designtech-intl.com (On-Line Tech Support,
Tech Tips) to download the door lock systems guide. This guide
identifies the type of system for your vehicle. With the built in door
lock relays you can properly interface the power locks with your
keyless entry/remote start system. If you are unable to identify your
door lock system with the web information please contact Directed
Technical Support.
Although there are numerous types of door lock circuits, the
most common is the negative triggered door lock system (Type
B). If your vehicle has a negative triggered door lock system,
follow the steps below. If your vehicle has any other type of door
lock system then, the easiest way to determine which type of
door lock system you are working with is to remove the master
locking switch itself, which is usually on the driver’s door or on
the center console. Once you have determined which type of
factory door lock circuit you are working with, and the color
codes of the switch wires to be used, you can usually simplify the
26

installation by locating the same wires in the vehicle’s kick panel.
If no central locking switch is found, the installation may require
a door lock actuator.
note: Always retest the wires in the kick panel to be sure
they function the same way as the wires on the switch.
There are eight common types of door lock circuits (some vehicles use more unusual systems):
■ Type A: Three-wire (+) pulse controlling factory lock relays.
Most GM, some Ford and Chrysler, 1995 Saturn, some new
VW, newer BMW.
■ Type B: Three-wire (-) pulse controlling factory lock relays.
Most Asian vehicles, early Saturn, some BMW and Porsche.
■ Type C: Direct-wired reversing-polarity switches. The switches are wired directly to the motors. This type of system has no
factory relays. Most Fords, many GM two-door cars and trucks,
many Chryslers.
■ Type D: Adding one or more aftermarket actuators. These
include slave systems without an actuator in the driver’s door,
but with factory actuators in all the other doors. Type D also
includes cars without power locks, which will have actuators
added. All Saabs before 1994, all Volvo except 850i, all pre-1997
Subarus, most Isuzus, and many Mazdas. Some mid-eighties
Nissans, pre-1985 Mercedes-Benz and Audi.
■ Type E: Electrically-activated vacuum systems. The vehicle
© 2006 Directed Electronics
27
must have a vacuum actuator in each door. Make sure that locking the doors from the driver's or passenger side using the key
activates all the actuators in the vehicle. This requires a slight
modification to the door lock harness. Mercedes-Benz and Audi
1985 and newer.
■ Type F: One-wire system - cut to lock, ground to unlock. This
system is found in late-model Nissan Sentras, some Nissan
240SX, and Nissan 300ZX 1992 and later. It is also found in
older Mitsubishis, and some early Mazda MPV’s.
■ Type G: Positive (+) multiplex. This system is most commonly found in Ford, Mazda, Chrysler and GM vehicles. The door
lock switch or door key cylinder may contain either one or two
resistors.
■ Type H: Negative (-) multiplex. The system is most commonly found in Ford, Mazda, Chrysler and GM vehicles. The door
lock switch or door key cylinder may contain either one or two
resistors.
at the door lock switch
■ Three-wire switches will have either a constant ground input or
a constant (+)12V input, along with the pulsed lock and unlock
outputs to the factory relays.
■ Many BMW’s and VW’s have no external switch. The switches are inside the actuator, and instead of pulsing, the proper
wires will flip-flop from (+)12V to (-) ground as the door locks
are operated.
■ Direct-wired switches will have a (+)12V constant input and one
or two (-) ground inputs, along with two output leads going

The switch will have three wires on it, and one wire will test
ground all the time. One wire will pulse (-) when the switch
locks the doors, and the other wire will pulse (-) when the switch
unlocks the doors. This type of system is difficult to mistake for
any other type.

testing reversing polarity systems
Use these instructions if the power door lock switch has four or
five heavy-gauge wires. This type of switch has two outputs that
rest at (-) ground.
important: To interface with these systems, you must cut
two switch leads. The relays must duplicate the factory
door lock switches’ operation. The master switch will
have one or two ground inputs, one (+)12V input, and
two switch outputs going directly to the slave switch and
through to the motors. These outputs rest at (-) ground.
The lock or unlock wire is switched to (+)12V, while the
other wire is still grounded, thus completing the circuit
and powering the motor. This will disconnect the switch
from the motor before supplying the motor with (+)12V,
avoiding sending (+)12V directly to (-) ground.
© 2006 Directed Electronics
31
It is critical to identify the proper wires and locate the master
switch to interface properly. Locate wires that show voltage when
the switch is moved to the lock or unlock position. Cut one of
the suspect wires and check operation of the locks from both
switches. If one switch loses all operation in both directions then
you have cut one of the correct wires and the switch that is
entirely dead is the master switch. If both switches still operate
in any way and one or more door motors have stopped
responding entirely, you have cut a motor lead. Reconnect it and
continue to test for another wire. Once both wires have been
located and the master switch identified, cut both wires and
interface as described in the following paragraphs.
caution: If these wires are not connected properly, you
will send (+)12V directly to (-) ground, possibly damaging the alarm or the factory switch.
■ H2/2 WHITE/BLACK: Once both door lock wires are
located and cut, connect the white/black wire to the master
switch side of the lock wire. The master switch side will show
(+)12V when the master switch is operated to the lock position
and (-) ground when the master switch is in the middle position.
■ H2/3 GREEN/BLACK: Connect the green/black wire to
the other side of the lock wire. This is the motor side of the lock
wire and it goes to the lock motor through the slave switch.
32
© 2006 Directed Electronics
■ H2/4 VIOLET/BLACK: This wire must be connected to
a constant (+)12 volts. The best connection point for this wire is
the constant (+)12V supply for the door lock switch*, or directly to the positive (+) battery post with a fuse at the battery post.
*note: Except in GM cars with retained accessory power
(RAP). In these vehicles, the (+)12V feed to the door lock
switches is turned off if the doors are closed for any length
of time.
note: Most direct-wired power lock systems require 20-30
amps of current to operate. Connecting the violet/black
wire to a poor source of voltage will keep the door locks
from operating properly.
■ H2/5 BROWN/BLACK: Connect the brown/black wire to
the master switch side of the unlock wire. The master switch side
will show (+)12V when the master switch is in the unlock position
and (-) ground when the master switch is in the middle position.
■ H2/6 BLUE/BLACK: Connect the blue/black wire to the
other side of the unlock wire.
■ H2/7 VIOLET: This wire must be connected to a constant
(+)12 volts. The best connection point for this wire is the constant (+)12V supply for the door lock switch*, or directly to the
positive (+) battery post with a fuse at the battery post. (See both
notes above.)

33
type D: adding one or more after-market actuators
Vehicles without factory power door locks require the installation of one actuator per door. This requires mounting the door
lock actuator inside the door. Other vehicles may only require
one actuator installed in the driver's door if all door locks are
operated when the driver's lock is used.

type G: positive (+) multiplex
This system is most commonly found in Ford, Mazda, Chrysler
and GM vehicles. The door lock switch or door key cylinder
may contain either one or two resistors.
SINGLE-RESISTOR TYPE: If one resistor is used in the door
lock switch/key cylinder, the wire will pulse (+)12V in one direction and less than (+)12V when operated in the opposite direction.
TWO-RESISTOR TYPE: If two resistors are used in the factory
door lock switch/key cylinder, the switch/key cylinder will read
less than (+)12V in both directions.
DETERMINING THE PROPER RESISTOR VALUES: To
determine the resistor values, the door lock switch/key cylinder
must be isolated from the factory door lock system. For testing, use
a calibrated digital multimeter that is set to ohms.
note: To ensure an accurate resistance reading, do not
touch the resistor or leads during testing.
note: Please refer to the Door Locking Systems document
on www.designtech-intl.com (On-Line Tech Support,

Engine monitoring (voltage—default setting)—optional
During remote start the system will need to know if the engine
is running. The module does this by monitoring the voltage of
the vehicle’s electrical system (or the tachometer-see next topic).
When the vehicle is not running the electrical system is approximately 12 volts. The system detects the engine running when
the voltage increases by 1 volt above the resting battery voltage.
The remote start system monitors the increase to prevent the
starter from cranking when the vehicle is already running.
If the remote start system sees the voltage drop by 1/2V the
system assumes the engine is not running and will shut down the
Ignition/Accessory circuit.
40
© 2006 Directed Electronics
On some vehicles the electrical system has too low of a voltage
variance for the remote start module to see. In this case the
engine will start but will only run for about ten seconds. If this
is the case, it will be necessary to use the tachometer.
Engine monitoring (tachometer)
warning! In the following procedure do
not wear loose clothing that could get
entangled in rotating engine components.
Ensure that your hands and arms are well
clear of these rotating components when
working in the engine compartment.
Lastly, ensure that all wires and tools are
clear of falling into or entanglement with
these rotating components.
note! In the following procedure do NOT use a test light.
Use of this type of tester can cause grounding of sensitive
electrical components causing damage, including damage
to the power train control module. A digital multi-meter
is required to test for this wire.
Identify the suspect wire according to the web information.
© 2006 Directed Electronics
41
Place the black lead of the multi-meter on the negative battery
post and secure it. Put the multi-meter in the AC position and
connect the probe to the suspect wire with the red lead of the
multi-meter. Then start the vehicle with the key. With the
engine at idle the multi-meter should read between .65 volts to
1.5 volts.
Have a second person press the gas pedal to increase the RPMs
and watch the meter display. When the RPMs increase the
voltage should rise slightly. (Not all tachometer outputs will rise
when the engine RPMs increase). Once the correct tachometer
wire has been identified, turn the vehicle off.
Run the Violet/White (H1/2) wire from the main connector
through the firewall into the engine compartment along side the
hood pin wire. Use the same procedure as with the hood pin
wire and pull the wire through the grommet taking extra care to
keep it away from any moving parts or anything that will
generate extreme heat. Once the wire is run into the engine
compartment, strip a small portion of insulation off the
tachometer wire and solder it to the Violet/White wire and wrap
the connection with electrical tape. Pull on the wire to ensure a
good connection.
note! For the programming of the tachometer, refer to
the Control Module Programming discussion.
➜ step 8
Factory Alarm Arm or Disarm
42
© 2006 Directed Electronics
Since most newer vehicles come equipped with a factory alarm
system, it is sometimes necessary for the factory alarm to be
armed/disarmed when unlocking the doors and disarmed while
remote starting the vehicle.
note: Some vehicles use a + trigger system. Use the
www.designtech-intl.com website to determine if your
vehicle has a + trigger system. If this vehicle has this system call 1-800-477-1382 for live technical assistance as
special wiring and an additional relay is required.
note: On some vehicles the Factory Alarm Disarm wire is
connected to a Body Control Module or a Door Module.
If you find this configuration, please call Directed
Technical Support at 1-800-477-1382.
Locate the factory alarm arm/disarm wires using the web site
vehicle information. Once the suspect wires are located, place
the multi-meter’s red lead to a (+)12 volt constant source and
secure it. Put the multi-meter in the DC position then probe the
suspect wire with the black lead of your meter. While probing
the wire, place the key in the drivers door cylinder. Turn it to the
unlock position and hold it when testing for the disarm wire.
The LED tester should illuminate Green and will extinguish
when the key is released.
When the correct wire has been found, solder the LIGHT
Green/Black (H1/7) wire of the main harness to the wire which
activates in the unlock position when the key is turned. After this
wire has been connected wrap the connection with electrical
tape.

➜ step 9
Immobilizer Bypass Modules
note: Any vehicle equipped with a factory immobilizer
must use an immobilizer bypass module to remote start.
If not used, the vehicle ignition or fuel supply circuits
could lock up and require a costly trip to the dealer to
reset the computer system.
Most newer vehicles have a factory engine immobilizer system
designed to prevent any unauthorized use of the vehicle. These
immobilizers will cut off power to the starter and the fuel supply
preventing a thief from starting the vehicle.
There are several types of immobilizers, with the most common
being the resistance based passlock/passlock 2 systems found on
most newer GM vehicles. This system can be bypassed using the
555L immobilizer bypass module available at your local retail
dealer. The majority of transponder-based immobilizer systems
can be bypassed using the 555U or 556U immobilizer bypass
module available at your local retail dealer.
note: This unit requires you to use one of your factory keys.
You may want to acquire another key from the dealer.
The BLUE wire (H1/1) of the primary harness supplies a
200mA output as soon as the control module begins the remote
start process. This wire can be used to activate an immobilizer
bypass unit.
44

To determine what bypass module your vehicle requires, use the
www.designtech-intl.com web-site in the Interface Module LookUp section.
➜ step 10
Learning the remote
The system comes with one programmed transmitter. The
receiver can store up to 4 different transmitter codes in memory.
Additional transmitters (part no. 26131) can be ordered by
contacting your local dealer at 1-800-274-0200. Use the
following to add a transmitter to the system.
The following is the basic sequence of steps to remember whenever
programming this unit:
warning! In the following procedure do
not activate the remote start feature with
the remote. This feature will be tested in
the next step.
1. Fuses. Be sure to place the two 30-amp fuses into the relay
harness RED wire fuse holders
2. Key. Turn the ignition to the ON position.

control module programming
Dependent on the vehicle, use the following data with the
instructions to program your system. These wire loops are found
at the side of the control module.
Door Lock Pulse Duration (WHITE) - Some European vehicles,
such as Mercedes-Benz and Audi, require longer lock and unlock
pulses to operate the vacuum pump. Programming the system to
provide 3.5 second pulses will accommodate door lock interface
in these vehicles. The default setting is 0.8 second door lock
pulses. See Mercedes-Benz and Audi - 1985 and Newer (Type E
Door Locks section) diagram.
Uncut – 0.8 seconds
Cut – 3.5 seconds
Double Pulse Unlock Single Pulse/Double Pulse (GREEN) Some vehicles require two pulses on a single wire to unlock the
doors. When the double pulse unlock feature is turned on, the
H2/6 BLUE/BLACK wire will supply two pulses instead of a
single pulse. This makes it possible to directly interface with
double pulse vehicles without any extra parts.
Uncut – single pulse
Cut – double pulse
50
© 2006 Directed Electronics
Ignition Controlled Door Locks On/Off (RED) - When on, the
doors will lock three seconds after the ignition is turned on and
unlock when the ignition is turned off.
Uncut – ignition controlled door locks on
Cut – ignition controlled door locks off
Diesel Mode (BLUE) - Cut this loop if you have a diesel vehicle.
When cut the remote start will start the engine about 30 seconds
after pressing the
button once.

DISARM
FAD/RAP Cancellation (GREEN/BLACK) - This loop controls
when the Green/Black (H1/7) wire outputs a negative pulse either
before or after the remote start is active. Uncut the H1/7 wire will
pulse negative prior to remote start, this is normally used as a
Factory Alarm Disarm (FAD) output. When this loop is cut, the
Green/Black (H1/7) wire outputs a negative pulse after the remote
start shuts down, this is normally used to disable vehicles with
Retained Accessory Power (RAP) (e.g. the radio stays powered
until the doors are opened). Call Directed Technical Support if
your vehicle has the RAP feature.
Uncut – FAD
Cut – RAP Cancellation
Voltage Mode/Tachometer Mode - Default is voltage mode. The
control module will automatically look at the tachometer input

51
during normal driving. If it finds a valid tachometer signal the
module will use tachometer mode, otherwise the module will
use voltage mode (battery voltage will rise after the engine
starts).
note: If only voltage mode is desired for remote start, the
Violet/White wire (H1/2) does not need to be connected.
To program tachometer mode:
1. Start the engine.
2. Simultaneously press and hold the

on the transmitter are released. The unit is now
programmed with tachometer.
note: If the parking lights never turn on, the unit remains
in voltage mode.
The system is programmed to attempt two starts using
tachometer mode (monitored through the Violet/White wire
[H1/2]). If after the second start attempt the control module did
not see a tachometer input the system will automatically
program itself to voltage engine monitoring mode. Check the
tachometer wiring and then repeat the previous steps for
tachometer programming.

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 an engine immobilizer?
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 1 or 2-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 Tach Learning
section of this guide.
Is the tach wire receiving the correct information? Either the
wrong tach wire has been used, or a bad connection exists.
Verify that all of the heavy gauge wires are plugged into the
correct tabs on the control unit. If they are incorrectly
connected, the starter could stay engaged.
60
© 2006 Directed Electronics
➤
The climate control system does not work while the unit is
operating the vehicle.
Either the wrong accessory wire is being energized or more
than one ignition or accessory wire must be energized in
order to operate the climate control system.
➤
The remote start will not activate.
Check to ensure that the hood is not open and that the brake
pedal is not depressed.
Check harnesses and connections. Make sure the harnesses
are fully plugged into the remote start module. Make sure
there are good connections to the vehicle wiring.
Check voltage and fuses. Use a meter and check for voltage
between the RED wire and the BLACK ground wire. If you
have less than battery voltage, check both 30A fuses on the
main power wires. Also make sure that the ground wire is
going to a good paint-free chassis ground.
➤
The remote start will activate but the starter never engages.
1. 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 no voltage present,
advance to Step 2.
2. Check the 30A fuses.
3. Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? Some immobilizer
systems will not allow the vehicle to crank if active.
4. Check connections. The two red heavy gauge input wires
should have solid connections. "T-taps", or "scotch
© 2006 Directed Electronics
61
locks" are not recommended for any high current heavy
gauge wiring. Also, if the vehicle has more than one 12volt input wire, then connect one red wire to each.
➤
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.
➤
The vehicle will start and run only for about 10 seconds.
Is the remote start programmed for voltage sense? Try
programming the unit using a tach wire.
