Installation Manual
PRE-INSTALLATION NOTES:
AUTO LOCK / UNLOCK : DIP SWITCH #1
The system is shipped with this feature activated.
Any time the ignition key is turned to the off position, the doors will automatically unlock. Any time the ignition
key is turned to the on position, the doors will automatically lock.
To disable the auto lock/unlock feature, move dip switch number 1 to the "off" position.
PASSIVE / ACTIVE DOOR LOCK SELECTION: DIP SWITCH #2
This feature will only affect the operation of the system if the passive arming feature is selected.
When active door lock is selected, the doors will only lock when the transmitter button is pressed. When the
alarm is allowed to arm passively, at the end of the 30 second arming cycle, the doors will not automatically
lock. The system is shipped in the active door lock mode, therefore, no modifications are required for this feature.
When passive door lock is selected, when the alarm is allowed to arm passively, at the end of the 30 second
arming cycle, the doors will automatically lock. To program this feature, move dip switch number 2 to the on
position.
PASSIVE / ACTIVE ARMING SELECTION: DIP SWITCH #3
This alarm can be programmed to operate as either a “PASSIVE” or “ACTIVE” arming security system.
As a “Passive” alarm, the system will automatically arm itself approximately 30 seconds after the ignition key
is turned off, one door is opened, then all vehicle doors are closed, (arming is suspended until the last door is
closed). This feature protects the vehicle in the event you forget to arm the system using the keychain transmitter.
When the optional door lock interface is installed, the doors will operate according to the position of dip switch
number 2.
This system is shipped in the passive mode, therefore no modifications are required to make the system operate
as a “Passive” alarm.
As an “Active” alarm, the system can only be armed using the keychain transmitter. There will be no backup
automatic arming.
To make the system operate as an “Active” alarm, move dip switch number 3 to the off position.
VOLTAGE SENSE / HARDWIRE SELECTION: DIP SWITCH #4
This alarm can be wired to operate as a Voltage Sensing or a Hardwire system.
As a voltage sensing system, the alarm will trigger any time an entry point that illuminates a courtesy light is
opened. The system is shipped in the voltage sensing mode, therefore, no modifications are required to make
this system a voltage sensing alarm.
As a hardwire system, the alarm will trigger any time a door, hood, trunk, etc. is opened, by wiring directly to
the switches. This means that if the courtesy light is burned out, or the courtesy light fuse is blown, the alarm
will continue to protect all points of entry. To make this system operate as a hardwire alarm, move dip switch
number 4 to the off position.
NOTE: When “Passive Arming” and “Voltage Sensing” are selected, you must hardwire the driver’s door pin
switch or passive arming will never be initiated.
CHANNEL 2 OUTPUT:
This system provides an additional hardwire remote output to control an assortment of optional upgrades.
This output is an independent channel from the transmitter, and is controlled by button #2 on the transmitter.
It is a delayed ground pulse (300 mA maximum), and can be used to control:
• Optional trunk release relay AS-9256
• Optional remote starter AS-9075
• Optional window roll up AS-9153
CHANNEL 3 OUTPUT (Transmitter Only):
The transmitters included in this alarm incorporate an additional independent 3rd radio channel. Although the
alarm module will only respond to 2 channels, the 3rd radio channel can be programmed to an optional garage
door interface (AS-9154).
The AS-9154 has its own on-board programmable receiver and is designed to operate with most existing
automatic garage door openers.
In addition, the garage door interface receiver can be directly wired into the vehicle to offer a third remote control
option. Since this is a set of relay contacts, the receiver can be used to provide a selectable positive or negative
pulse.
TRANSMITTER PROGRAMMING:
The transmitters included in this kit have been programmed at the factory for the Channel 1 (arm, disarm and
panic function) only. Any additional functions of the system (Channels 2 and 3) must be programmed at the
time of installation. These functions can be assigned to transmitter button number 2 or a simultaneous press
of both buttons 1 and 2.
Refer to the transmitter programming guide, included in this package, for more details regarding transmitter
button assignments and system functions.
INSTALLATION OF MAJOR COMPONENTS:
CONTROL MODULE:
Select a mounting location inside the passenger compartment (up behind the dash) and secure using two screws
provided.
The control module can also be secured in place using cable ties.
Do not mount the control module in the engine compartment, as it is not waterproof. You should also avoid
mounting the unit directly onto factory installed electronic components. These components may cause RF
interference, which can result in poor transmitter range or intermittent operation.
SIREN:
Select a mounting location in the engine compartment that is well protected from access below the vehicle. Avoid
areas near high heat components or moving parts within the engine compartment. To prevent water retention,
the flared, or opened end, of the siren must be pointed downward when mounted. Mount the siren to the selected
location using the screws and bracket provided.
HOOD OR TRUNK PIN SWITCH:
A pin switch is included for use in protecting the hood or trunk (or hatchback) of the vehicle.
The switch must always be mounted to a grounded, metal surface of the vehicle. It is important to select a location
where water cannot flow or collect and to avoid all drip “gutters” on hood and trunk fender walls. Choose locations
that are protected by rubber gaskets when the hood or trunk lid is closed.
The pin switch can be mounted using the bracket provided or direct mounted by drilling a 9/32" diameter
mounting hole.
Keep in mind that when properly mounted, the plunger of the pin switch should depress at least 1/4" when the
hood or trunk lid is closed.

DASH MOUNTED LED:
A small red LED is included that will serve as a visual indicator of the alarm status. It should be installed in the
dash, located where it can be easily seen from outside the vehicle, yet not be distracting to the driver.
Once a location has been selected, check behind the panel for wire routing access and to confirm the drill will
not damage any existing components as it passes through the panel.
Drill a 1/4" diameter hole, and pass the red and blue wires from the LED through the hole, from the front of the
panel. Firmly press the body of the LED into the hole until fully seated.
SHOCK SENSOR:
Select a solid mounting surface for the shock sensor on the firewall inside the passenger compartment, and
mount the sensor using the two screws provided. The shock sensor can also be secured to any fixed brace
behind the dash using tie straps.
Whichever mounting method is selected, make certain that the sensitivity adjustment is accessible for use
later in the installation.
VALET SWITCH:
Select a desired mounting location for the switch, that is easily accessible to the driver of the vehicle.
The switch does not have to be concealed, however, concealing the switch is always recommended, as this
provides an even higher level of security to the vehicle. The switch may be mounted in or below the dash by drilling
a 1/4" diameter hole in the location. Be sure to check behind the dash for adequate clearance for the body of
the switch, and to confirm that the drill will not damage any existing components as it passes through the dash.
Whichever mounting method is used, make certain the back of the switch is accessible for wiring later in the
installation.
WIRING THE SYSTEM:
WHITE WIRE: + 12 VDC PULSED PARKING LIGHT OUTPUT ( 15 A MAX )
This wire is provided to flash the vehicle’s parking lights. Connect the white wire to the positive side of one of
the vehicle’s parking lights.
RED FUSED WIRE - (VOLTAGE SENSING): + 12 VDC CONSTANT BATTERY SOURCE
This wire controls the sensitivity of the voltage sensing circuit, which detects the turning on of an interior light
when a door is opened. It will also detect the switching on of parking or headlamps, and in many cases will trigger
the alarm when a thermostatically controlled electronic radiator cooling fan switches on. It is recommended that
when installing this system into vehicles with electronic “after fans”, the procedure for RED FUSED WIRE (HARDWIRE) should be followed.
In voltage sensing applications, the closer to the battery that the red wire is connected, the less sensitive the
voltage sense circuitry will be. Moving this connection point to the fuse panel will increase the sensitivity and
connecting to the courtesy lamp fuse in the vehicle will provide maximum sensitivity of the voltage sense circuit.
RED FUSED WIRE - (HARDWIRE): + 12 VDC CONSTANT BATTERY SOURCE
When hardwiring the control module to pin switches at all entry points, the voltage sense circuit must be disabled.
Move dip switch # 4 to the "OFF" position. Connect the red wire to a + 12 VDC constant battery source.
DARK BLUE WIRE: 300 mA PULSED OUTPUT/CHANNEL 2
The dark blue wire pulses to ground via an independent RF channel from the keychain transmitter. This is a
transistorized, low current output, and should only be used to drive an external relay coil.
WARNING: Connecting the dark blue wire to the high current switched output of trunk release circuits
or some remote starter trigger inputs, will damage the control module.
Connect the dark blue wire to terminal 86 of the AS-9256 relay (or equivalent 30 A automotive relay), and wire
the remaining relay contacts to perform the selected function of channel 2.

WHITE w/ BLACK TRACE WIRE: POSITIVE OUTPUT TO SIREN
Route this wire through a rubber grommet in the firewall to the siren location. Connect the white/black wire to
the positive wire of the siren. Secure the black ground wire of the siren to chassis ground.
BLACK WIRE: CHASSIS GROUND
Connect this wire to a solid, metal part of the vehicle’s chassis. Do not confuse this wire with the thin black
antenna wire that exits the control module independently.
YELLOW WIRE: + 12 VDC IGNITION SOURCE
Connect this wire to a source that supplies 12 VDC when the ignition key is in the ON and CRANK positions
and off when the key is in the OFF position.
DARK GREEN WIRE: (-) INSTANT TRIGGER
This is an instant on ground trigger wire. It must be connected to the previously installed hood and trunk pin
switches.
BROWN WIRE: - DOOR TRIGGER
If the vehicle’s door courtesy light switches have a - ground output when the door is opened ( GM and most
Imports ) you must connect this wire to the negative output from one of the door switches. In most cases, the
brown wire will only need to be connected to one door switch, no matter how many doors the vehicle has.
WARNING: Do not use the brown wire if the vehicle has + 12 Volt output type door switches. (see
PURPLE WIRE)
PURPLE WIRE: + DOOR TRIGGER
If the vehicle’s door courtesy light switches have a + 12 volt output when the door is opened ( most Fords and
some Imports), you must connect this wire to the positive output from one of the door switches. In most cases,
the purple wire will only need to be connected to one door switch, no matter how many doors the vehicle has.
WARNING: Do not use the purple wire if the vehicle has ground output type door switches. (see
BROWN WIRE)
ORANGE WIRE: GROUND OUTPUT WHEN ARMED
This wire is provided to control the starter cut relay. Connect the orange wire to terminal 86 of the relay and
wire the remaining relay contacts as shown in the wiring diagram.
IMPORTANT: Audiovox does not recommend using this relay to interrupt the ignition wire. Only
connect this relay to the low current starter solenoid feed wire, as indicated on the
wiring diagram.
GREY & BLACK 2 PIN (blue) CONNECTOR: VALET SWITCH
Route the two conductor, blue connector from the previously installed valet switch to the alarm control module
and plug it into the mating blue connector on the end of the module.
RED & BLUE WIRES: DASH MOUNTED LED
Route the two conductor, white connector (red and blue wires) from the previously installed LED to the alarm
control module and plug it into the mating white connector on the end of the module.
RED & GREEN 2 PIN (white) CONNECTOR: DOOR LOCK OUTPUTS
These wires will provide a pulsed ground output to the factory door lock control relay. The maximum current
draw through these outputs must not exceed 300 mA.

3 Wire Ground Switched Door Locks
In this application, the red wire provides a ground pulse during arming (pulsed ground lock) output.
Connect the red wire to the wire that provides a low current ground signal from the factory door lock switch to
the factory door lock control relay.
The green wire provides a ground pulse during disarming (pulsed ground unlock) output. Connect the
green wire to the wire that provides a low current ground signal from the factory door unlock switch to the
factory door lock control relay.
3 Wire Positive Switched Door Locks
In this application, the red wire provides a positive pulse during disarming (pulsed + 12 volt unlock) output.
Connect the red wire to the wire that provides a low current positive signal from the factory door unlock switch
to the factory door lock control relay.
The green wire provides a positive pulse during arming (pulsed + 12 volt lock) output. Connect the green
wire to the wire that provides a low current positive signal from the factory door lock switch to the factory door
lock control relay.
Resistive Circuits, As Well As 4 Wire Polarity Reversal and 5 Wire Alternating 12 Volt Door Lock
Control Circuits
These applications require the use of additional components which may include relays, fixed resistors, or for
convenience, the AS 9159 Door Lock Interface. Refer to the AUDIOVOX Door Lock Wiring Supplement and or
the Audiovox fax back service for information on your particular vehicle for properly connecting to these types
of circuits.
COMPLETING THE INSTALLATION
Antenna Wire : Be sure to extend the thin black antenna wire to it’s full length and cable tie into place where
it cannot be damaged. Avoid wrapping this wire around major, high current wire looms.
Adjusting the Shock Sensor : The sensitivity of the pre - detect circuit, where used, is automatically set 30%
less sensitive than the full trigger circuit.
Using a small screwdriver, gently turn the adjustment screw fully counterclockwise. ( DO NOT over turn this
screw. Maximum rotation for this adjustment is 270° ). Close the hood and trunk lids, and arm the alarm. Wait
6 seconds for the accessories trigger zone to stabilize, then firmly strike the rear bumper with the side of a
closed fist considering the amount of force required to break a window.
CAUTION : Never perform this test on the vehicle’s glass, as you may break the window.
Turn the adjustment screw clockwise ( increasing sensitivity ) about ¼ turn and re-test. Repeat this
procedure until the alarm sounds. Ultimately, one firm strike to the rear bumper will cause the alarm to emit
pre - detect warning tones.
WARNING ! Setting the sensitivity too high can cause false alarms due to noise vibrations from passing
trucks and heavy equipment. To decrease sensitivity, turn the adjustment screw counter clockwise.
Wire Dressing : Always wrap the alarm wires in convoluted tubing, or with a spiral wrap of electrical tape.
Secure these looms along the routing using cable ties. This will ensure that the alarm wires are not damaged
by falling onto hot or sharp moving surfaces in the vehicle.
Operation : Take a few moments to check off the appropriate option boxes in the owner’s manual and to fully
explain the operation of the system to your customer.
