This device complies with Part 15 of 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 undesirable operation.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a class B
digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to
provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates and can radiate radio frequency energy and,
if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee
that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does
cause harmful interference to radio or television, which can be determined by
turning the equipment Off and ON, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
•
•
•
•
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which
the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio / TV technician for help.
To satisfy FCC RF exposure compliance requirements, this device should be used
in hand-held, hand operated configurations only. The device and its antenna
must maintain a separation distance of 20 cm or more from the person’s body,
except for the hand and wrists, to satisfy RF exposure compliance. This device
is designed to be used in a person’s hands and its operating configurations do
not support normal transmissions while it is carried in pockets or holsters next to
a persons’ body.

This device complies with the Industry Canada Radio Standards Specification
RSS 210. Its use is authorized only on a no-interference, no-protection basis; in
other words, this device must not be used if it is determined that it causes harmful interference to services authorized by IC. In addition, the user of this device
must accept any radio interference that may be received, even if this interference
could affect the operation of the device.
Warning:
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for
compliance could void the user’s authority to operate this device.
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 1-800-753-0600.

© 2008 Directed Electronics. All rights reserved.
Before remote starting a manual transmission vehicle, be sure to:
• Leave the vehicle in neutral and be sure no one is standing in front or
behind the vehicle.
• Only remote start on a flat surface
• Have the parking brake fully engaged
Warning! It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure the parking/
emergency brake properly functions. Failure to do so can result in personal
injury or property damage. We recommend the owner have the parking/
emergency brake system inspected and adjusted by a qualified automotive
shop biannually.
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.
This product is designed for fuel injected vehicles only. Use of this product in a
standard transmission vehicle must be in strict accordance with this guide.

➤ 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 transmit indicator on the remote flashes
rapidly, the key LED turns on, and the remote emits the error tone sounds.
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 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 is reduced.
➤ Low battery indicator
When the batteries are low on the 2-way remote it emits two groups of beeps,
the LED flashes, and the system emits an additional honk when unlocking to let
you know its 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.
Note: The Lock/Unlock confirmations should be programmed On,and the optional horn honk installed, for the system to emit any additional honks during
unlocking. Ask your authorized dealer if you have any questions.

Safety features
This system has several important safety features to ensure proper operation of
the motor and prevent accidental damage to the engine or its components.
➤ Optional starter anti-grind circuitry
Whenever the vehicle is remote started, advanced anti-grind circuitry prevents
the starter from engaging, even if the key is turned to the start position. This prevents damage to the starter motor if the key is turned to the start position during
remote start operation.
Note: Anti-grind circuitry only works when the remote start system is operating
the motor and the optional Failsafe® Starter Kill relay is installed.
➤ Disabling the remote start system
This feature allows the remote start unit to be temporarily disabled to prevent the
vehicle from being remote started accidentally. This feature is useful when the
vehicle is being serviced or stored in an enclosed area.
To disable the remote start, move the shutdown toggle switch to the Off position.
Check with your installer for the location of the shutdown switch.
Location of Shutdown Switch____________________________

Diagnostics
The micorprocessor at the heart of the system is constantly monitoring the switches that are connected to the main unit.
➤ Locking
If the system is locked at the same time that the door input is active, you will hear
one horn honk to indicate locking, and then a second horn honk to indicate
Bypass Notification.
Note: Bypass Notification does not occur if the optional horn input is not installed or when the system is in Silent Mode or if the notification honks have
been programmed Off by the installer.
➤ Unlocking
Extra honks when unlocking the system is a notification that the batteries in the
remote are low and need to be replaced.
Important: The optional horn honk feature must be
installed.
32
© 2008 Directed Electronics. All rights reserved.
➤ Remote start
This system can provide you with information to indicate what the problem is
when using the remote start. When the remote start is activated and fails to
engage, count the parking light flashes to determine the problem. The parking
lights will flash between 5 - 8 times to indicate what caused the no start situation.
•
5 flashes: brake wire is active
•
6 flashes: hood pin is active
•
7 flashes: manual transmission mode is enabled and not initialized
•
8 flashes: neutral safety wire has no ground or the remote start
defeat toggle switch is off.
Keep a record of the number of flashes, to assist your installer when taking the
vehicle in for service.

33
Owner recognition
Owner recognition lets up to four users of the system have unique settings to
meet their specific needs. It is almost like having four separate systems in your
vehicle, one for each user. This feature is only available to authorized dealers
using the Bitwriter or Bitwriter 2 program tool.
Rapid resume logic
This Directed system will store its current state to non-volatile memory. If power is
lost and then reconnected the system will recall the stored state from memory.
For example, if the unit is in Valet Mode and the battery is disconnected for any
reason, such as servicing the car, when the battery is reconnected the unit is still
in Valet Mode. This applies to all states of the system including lock or unlock.
Power saver mode
➤ System
Your system will automatically enter Power Saver Mode while locked or in Valet
Mode, 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 locked: After the system has been Locked for
24 hours the LED flashes at half its normal rate, decreasing the system’s current
draw.
Power Saver in Valet Mode: When the system enters Valet Mode the Status LED
on the Responder LE control center illuminates steadily. If the vehicle is not used
(ignition is not turned on) for a one-hour period while the system is in Valet Mode,
the status LED shuts Off. If the system remains in Valet Mode, the LED comes back
on the next time the ignition is turned On, and then Off.
34

➤ 2-way remote
Your Responder LE 2way remote control has a feature called remote power save
mode. When programmed On under remote options, the remote conserves
power by disabling the paging function if unused for more than 72 hours.
Pressing any button on the remote restores 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.
Programming options
Your system has many custom programmable options. Some may require installation labor. Ask your authorized dealer for details.
The following is a list of the programmable options, with the factory settings in
Bold.
•
Active locking (remote only) passive locking, the system automatically
locks the doors 30-seconds after the last door is closed; or Auto Re-lock
automatically re-locks the doors 60 seconds after unlocking (if no door is
opened).
•
Locking/Unlocking with no horn honk confirmations On or Off.
•
Ignition controlled door lock feature On or Off: When this feature is programmed on, the doors lock three seconds after the ignition is turned on,
and unlock when the ignition is turned Off. The ignition lock and unlock
are independent features that can be programmed separately.
•
Panic mode enabled/disabled when the ignition is turned on or completely turned Off.
•
Comfort closure is a programming option which closes the vehicle’s windows after remote locking. Note: Comfort closure can only be used on
cars that have the capability of closing the windows (and on some cars
the sunroof as well) with the key cylinder in the door.

35
Convenience expansions
Listed below are some of the expansion optins available. Please consult your
dealer for a complete explanation of all the options avaiable to you.
Power Trunk Release: The accessory output of the system can operate a factory
power release for the vehicle’s trunk or hatch. Sometimes an optional relay is
required. If the factory release is not power-activated, Directed®’s 522T trunk
release solenoid can often be added.
Power Window Control: Automatic power window control is provided with
the 529T and 530T systems. These can operate power windows,and can roll
them up automatically when the system is Locked, roll them down, or both up
and down.
