AviStart 4501 Owner's Manual 0999
AviStart 4501
Congratulations! You have just purchased the AviStart 4501, a keyless entry
and remote engine starter system manufactured by Avital Technologies, Inc.
You are about to experience the convenience and luxury of being able to start
your vehicle engine from the comfort of your home, office, department store
or other remote location.
To benefit fully from the capabilities of your AviStart system, we encourage
you to read the Owner’s Manual thoroughly before using the system. If you
should have any problems or questions regarding your AviStart system,
consult the dealer from whom you purchased this product. To locate an
authorized Avital dealer, contact Customer Service directly at 1-800-824-3208
(toll-free within the U.S.) or 1-818-709-7551.
Lifetime Warranty
Avital guarantees the operation of your AviStart control unit and remote
controls for as long as you own your car. (Please refer to back of this manual
for complete information.)
Remote Controls
Included with your AviStart system are two AviGlo™ 4-button/9-channel
remote controls. Once exposed to light, the AviGlo™ remote control buttons
will glow, making the buttons visible in the dark.
The remote control (remote) is a miniature transmitter powered by a small
+12 volt battery. The RangeMaster™ super-heterodyne receiver (installed in
your vehicle) allows your remote to command your system from up to ¼ mile
away. Obstructions, electrical or radio interference, weather conditions,
window tint or a weak battery can reduce this range. Your remote is the key to
your AviStart system and can be used lock and unlock your doors, "pop" your
trunk, start your engine and control optional accessories.
The AviStart system can accept up to four Avital remote controls. Additional
remote controls and remote control batteries can be purchased from any
authorized Avital dealer, or by calling Customer Service at 1-800-824-3208
(toll-free within the U.S.) or 1-818-709-7551.

AviStart 4501 Owner's Manual 0999
Stealth Coding  Technology
Stealth Coding™ technology offers the most advanced protection available
against "code-grabbing" devices which thieves may use to record the digital
code transmitted by your remote control. When you leave the area, thieves
can then play back the code to unlock the doors and deactivate your system.
But Avital’s remote controls with Stealth Coding™ randomly change the code
every time you use them, and your system will not respond if any code is
retransmitted. This technology makes code-grabbing devices useless.
Electronic Scan Prevention (ESP)
Your AviStart system also includes ESP, which blocks electronic scanner codes
to prevent unauthorized operation of your system.
Instant Remote Control Code Deletion
In the event of a lost or stolen remote control, all remote controls can be
erased from the system’s memory to prevent unauthorized system operation.
(See the "Programming Table for Remote Controls" on page 11).
One-Step Remote Control Code Learning
The AviStart system allows you to add new remote controls in one step. (See
the "Programming Table for Remote Controls" on page 11).
Valet Switch
The valet switch is a small hidden toggle switch which allows you to control
all of the system’s programmable features. (See the "User-Programmable
Features" on page 10). This switch can only be controlled with the use of your
ignition key.
NOTE: Be sure to have your dealer show you where the valet switch is located.
