RS900 / RS901 SERIES VI
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
**IMPORTANT NOTES:- FOR RS901 MODEL ONLY**
RS901 Model is an add-on/expansion unit, without remotes or an antenna that must be controlled by an existing
alarm or keyless entry system. The “Infinity Run” feature is not available on an RS-901 system. Most of the
remote start features can be controlled through an existing factory or aftermarket remote keyless entry or alarm
system. Pressing a auxiliary button on an Aftermarket system or pressing a button 3 times on a Factory keyless
remote can activate a remote start using the 901. This is referred to in this manual as activating the “Green Start
input wire”.
*IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Primary and Optional Features
-PRIMARY: These are features that must be connected in order for the system to operate properly i.e. Remote
Start connections, Flashing lights, Brake Reset, etc.
-OPTIONAL: These are features are to be connected only if desired or agreed upon by the customer and the
installing dealer i.e. Door Locks, Trunk Pop, Dome Light Illumination, Horn-Honk, Anti-Grind, etc. These features
may also require additional parts and/or labor fees. Consult with your installer beforehand to be sure of what is
going to be installed with your particular system.

illuminate the interior light when you unlock your vehicle for lighted entry at night. If you have the optional trunk
pop installed, simply press and release the Trunk Button #3 on the transmitter to remotely open trunk. If your
system is programmed for Dome Light illumination, then it will work automatically lighting the dome light for 30
seconds when you unlock your vehicle via the remote. The dome light will turn off after 30 seconds, turning the
key on whichever comes first. Trunk Pop or Dome Light Illumination may require extra labor and/or parts to install.
VALET MODE / STARTER DISABLE OVERRIDE
Before servicing your vehicle or handing the keys over to a Valet we recommend putting the unit into valet mode.
The remote start function WILL NOT operate when in Valet mode. To enter Valet mode, turn the key to the ON
position, press and hold Program/Valet switch for 6 seconds. The LED will turn on solid and the system is now in
valet. Perform this procedure again to exit of Valet mode. The keyless entry will still function normally while in
valet mode. In the event of a lost or broken transmitter, perform this step to override the Starter Disable (if
installed).
ANTI-GRIND / STARTER DISABLE (Optional)
This Optional feature prevents the user from accidentally grinding the starter if the Ignition key is turned too far to
the start position while engine is already running from the remote starter. The Anti-Grind/Starter Disable requires
the use of an external relay. This system must be programmed to allow the relay to work as a starter disable.
PASSIVE STARTER DISABLE (Optional)
This RS900 includes a programmable feature to allow the Optional Starter Disable to activate automatically 1
minute after the ignition is turned off. This programmable feature may provide insurance discounts or meet an
insurance requirement in your providence.
HOOD OPEN SAFETY (Requires grounding hood pin installation)
Prevents the engine being Remote Started when hood is open and will shut OFF the engine if opened during a
remote start. Eliminates risk of injury to someone working under the hood of the vehicle with a properly working
hood pin installed. If Remote Start button is pressed with the hood open, the lights will flash once and the unit will
not attempt a start.
BRAKE PEDAL RESET
Prevents starting or shuts off a remote started vehicle when this circuit is active or activated. Prevents
unauthorized tampering. This circuit shuts the system down immediately when brake pedal is pressed if key is not
in ignition and turned ON.
CONVENIENCE AND SAFETY FEATURES
OEM ALARM INTERFACE
This feature is designed to Disarm and Re-arm Factory equipped security systems in conjunction with remote start
and keyless entry (if needed for your vehicle). This feature will maintain the original integrity and security of your
vehicle’s factory equipped systems before, during, or after remote start.
NOTE:
When changing, charging, or jumpstarting the vehicle’s battery we recommend removing the main power fuses
located on the heavy gauge RED wires near the remote start module.

TROUBLESHOOTING: “BEFORE YOU CALL” SECTION
UNIT WILL NOT ATTEMPT A START (KEYLESS ENTRY STILL FUNCTIONS NORMALLY):
The unit is in Valet mode. Turn Ignition ON, press and hold valet/programming button for 6 seconds then turn key
off. Unit is now out of valet mode and should perform a remote start. If optional LED indicator is installed, then it
will be on solid when in Valet and OFF when out of Valet.
UNIT FLASHES LIGHTS ONCE AND WILL NOT ATTEMPT A START:
The unit senses a fault at the Brake (Purple wire is active) or the Hood is OPEN (Gray wire grounded). This is a
safety feature of the unit. Check installation for faults and make sure hood is closed and latched and brake wire is
not active. Make sure hood is in good condition and is depressed when hood is closed.
NO RESPONSE FROM REMOTE TRANSMITTERS: (4 Parts)
1. Check for proper power/ground wiring connections at module.
2. Check Antenna Module connection. The antenna module included with this system must be plugged in.
3. Transmitters may need to be programmed to the unit. See transmitter programming steps on Page 10.
4. Check transmitter Batteries and replace if necessary.
UNIT CRANKS VEHICLE BUT ENGINE NEVER STARTS: (2 parts)
1. In extreme cold or severe weather conditions, the unit may take more than the first attempt to start the vehicle.
The remote start unit will make up to 3 attempts to start the engine.
2. In some vehicles, there may be a Factory anti-theft system that will not allow the engine to run without the key
in the ignition. These systems may include Factory Security Modules, GM Passkey®/Passlock®, and RF
Transponder systems (Ford P.A.T.S.®). Many late 1990’s and later vehicles include some type of Anti-Theft
system which may require a bypass module. Check with installer to make sure that the bypass device (if
equipped) is functioning properly.
VEHICLE STARTS BUT “CHECK ENGINE” LIGHT COMES ON OR ENGINE RUNS BADLY: (2 parts)
1. Many 1995-UP General Motors cars/trucks require a secondary ignition circuit for the Transmission computer
and other on board systems. If the vehicle is started without this wire energized, there may be a “Check
Engine” or “Service Engine Soon” light on the dash. This may cause damage if the vehicle is driven in this
condition. Check with installer to see if this circuit is present and has been properly connected to the RS900.
2. In some cases [commonly Nissan vehicles], an additional “Start” (Cranking) circuit is required for the vehicle to
run properly. The RS900 VI system includes a wire that can be used for this Starter #2 circuit. Check with your
installer for details.
