Getting Started
System maintenance
The system requires no specific maintenance beyond battery replacement for the remote controls. Your 1-way remote control is powered by
a coin cell battery (CR-2032) that can be purchased at most retailers.
The operating range diminishes as the battery weakens.
Battery Replacement
Locate the small slot on the side of the remote control. Insert a small
slotted screwdriver or equivalent tool into slot and pry the case apart.
Replace battery while verifying the correct polarity and then snap case
together.

Remote and System operations
Passive arming/locking
The system can be programmed to arm/lock itself automatically (called
passive arming/locking). If the system is programmed for passive arming/
locking, it will automatically arm/lock 30 seconds after the ignition is
turned off and the system detects that you have left the vehicle by opening
and closing a door. Whenever the system is in its 30-second passive arming/locking countdown, the status LED will flash twice as fast as it does
when the system is armed/locked. At the 20-second point of the countdown, the siren/horn will sound to indicate that the system is about to
arm/lock. At the 30-second point, the parking lights will flash to indicate
that the system is armed/locked.
Note: If any protected entry point (such as a door or a switch-protected
trunk or hood) is open, the system will not passively arm/lock (unless
forced passive arming/locking is programmed on).
Warn away® response (security only)
•
Shock Sensor - Light impacts to the vehicle will flash the vehicle
lights and sound the siren/horn for a few seconds.
Triggered response (security only)
A Triggered Response can be activated by any of the triggers listed
below. The default Triggered Response duration is 30 seconds but can
be programmed from 1-180 seconds by your installer.
• Shock Sensor Trigger - Heavy impacts to the vehicle will instantly
sound the siren/horn and flash the lights for the programmed duration and report Zone 2.
• Door Trigger - If a door is opened the siren/horn will sound and

lights flash for three seconds, then the siren/horn will sound continuously and the lights will flash for the programmed duration and
report Zone 3. The three seconds allow the user time to disarm/
unlock the system with a minimum of noise should a door be
opened inadvertently while the system is armed/locked.
Hood Trigger - Opening the hood will sound the siren/horn, flash
the lights for the programmed duration, and report Zone 1.
Trunk Trigger - Opening the trunk (if connected) will instantly sound
the siren/horn and flash the lights for the programmed duration
and report Zone 4.
Ignition Trigger - Turning on the ignition key will trip the same progressive response as the door trigger and report Zone 5.
Multi-level security arming (security only)
Multi-Level Security Arming allows you to select which of the system’s
inputs or sensors will be active and which will be bypassed when the
system is armed.
Pressing
again within five seconds of arming the system activates
the Multi-level security feature. Each time
is pressed, a different
security level is selected.
To select the security levels:
Press
once: The siren chirps once. The system is armed with all
zones active.
Press
a second time within five seconds. The siren chirps twice followed by a long chirp. Zone 2 is now bypassed.
Press
a third time within five seconds. The siren chirps three times
followed by a long chirp. Zone 4 is now bypassed.
10
© 2010 Directed Electronics. All rights reserved.
Press
a fourth time within five seconds. The siren chirps four times
followed by a long chirp. Zones 2 and 4 are now bypassed.
Press
a fifth time within five seconds. The siren chirps five times
followed by a long chirp. All input zones, except the ignition are now
bypassed.
Note: Multi-level security arming only applies to a single arming cycle.

active again.
Arming while driving (security only)
Your security system can be armed while driving the vehicle.
Press
on the remote control for two seconds while the vehicle is
running. The siren/horn will sound once to indicate that the security
system is armed, and then once more to indicate that the ignition is on.
The system will not respond to any input except the door triggers, and
the starter kill relay (if installed) will not be activated. Once you have
arrived at your destination, the system will disarm when the ignition is
turned off. The siren/horn will sound twice and the LED will then stop
flashing. The system can also be disarmed at any time by pressing
High security disarm (security only)
This security system offers High Security Disarm. High Security Disarm
is a feature that makes it possible to silence and reset the system while
it is triggering, without disarming the system.
If the system is triggered and the siren has been sounding for longer
than six seconds, pressing
on the remote silences the siren while
keeping the system in the armed state. The system does not disarm,
but resets. Pressing
again after silencing the system will disarm the
system.

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.
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.
Important: The Fail Safe starter kill option must be installed for this
feature to work.
Disabling the remote start system
This feature allows your system’s remote start unit to be temporarily
disabled to prevent the vehicle from being remote started accidentally.
This feature is useful if 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. The switch can be installed in a location
of your choice. Check with your installer for recommended locations.
Location of Shutdown Switch____________________________
Shut down inputs
This security system uses several inputs to shut down the remote start operation of the motor or prevent remote start if certain inputs are active.
The two most important are hood and brake inputs. The hood input will
prevent the motor from starting, as well as shut it down, any time the
hood is opened. The brake pedal will shut down the motor at any time
during remote start operation, as well as preventing the remote start
from activating while it is being pressed.
18
© 2010 Directed Electronics. All rights reserved.
Diagnostics (security only)
The microprocessor at the heart of your system is constantly monitoring
all of the switches and sensors connected to it. It is designed to detect
any faulty switches and sensors and prevents them from disabling the
entire system. The microprocessor will also record and report any triggers that occurred during your absence. Refer to the Table of Zones
sections of this guide for diagnostic information.
Arming diagnostics
When armed by remote command the system runs a status check of the
alarm trigger zones. Faulty zones (usually caused by dome light delay
or open trunk) are bypassed and reported via the control center LED,
while all other trigger zones remain active and are monitored to protect
the vehicle. Should a faulty zone self correct (dome light turns off) it
becomes active and is then monitored normally. The siren chirps once
again a few seconds following the arming chirps as an audible alert,
the control center LED flashes in groups to indicate the zone number
(see Table of zones).
Disarming diagnostics
The most recent alarm triggers (if any) are reported when the alarm
is disarmed via the siren chirps, parking light and control center LED
flashes. The siren chirps 4 times (or 5 times if NPC On), the lights flash
3 times, and the control center LED flashes in groups to indicate the last
two zones that were triggered (see Table of Zones).
Nuisance Prevention® Circuitry
Your system has Directed’s Nuisance Prevention Circuitry (NPC). It
prevents annoying repetitive trigger sequences due to faulty door pin

19
switches or environmental conditions such as thunder, jackhammers,
airport noise, etc.
Example: If the alarm triggers three times within a 60-minute period
and each time the same sensor or switch triggers the alarm, NPC will
interpret those triggers as false alarms. After the third trigger, NPC ignores, or bypasses, that sensor or switch (along with any other sensors
or switches sharing the same zone) for 60 minutes.
If the bypassed sensor tries to trigger the security system while it is being bypassed, the 60-minute bypass period will start over. This ensures
that a sensor that is continually being triggered will remain bypassed.
The vehicle doors are protected by NPC differently. If your security
system is triggered by an open door for three full cycles, the system will
bypass the doors until the trigger ceases.
Note: Arming and disarming the system does not reset this function. The
only way to reset a bypassed zone is to not have it trigger for 60 minutes, or to turn on the ignition. If testing your system, remember that the
NPC programming can cause zones to be bypassed and appear to
stop working. If five chirps are heard when disarming, NPC has been
engaged. If you wish to clear the NPC memory, turn the ignition on.
Table of zones
A zone is represented by the number of LED flashes used by the system
to identify a particular type of input. Standard input assignments are
listed in the following table, along with spaces to write in any optional
sensors or switches that have been installed. Warn Away responses are
not reported by arming or disarming diagnostics.

Dealer installed options
Your system stores the last two triggered zones in memory. If your system
has been triggered but the LED has been reset by turning on the ignition, your dealer can still recall the last two zones that were triggered.
Contact your dealer for details.
Programming options
Programming options control your system’s normal, operational set-up.
Most options do not require additional parts, but some may require
installation labor. See your authorized Directed dealer for more details.
The following is a list of the programmable options, with the factory
settings in Bold.
•
Active arming (transmitter only) or Passive arming (automatic arming 30 seconds after the last door has been closed).
•
Arming/disarming siren chirps On or Off.
•
The ignition controlled door lock feature On or Off: When this feature is programmed on, the doors will lock three seconds after the
ignition is turned on, and unlock when the ignition is turned off. If
your installer is programming the security system with the Directed
Bitwriter, ignition lock and unlock are independent features that
can be programmed separately.
Important: The vehicle doors must be closed for the ignition lock
feature to work.
•
Passive door locking (with passive arming) or Active door locking
(only when arming with the transmitter). Passive locking allows the
vehicle’s doors to lock when the security system passively arms
(after the 30-second countdown). This feature only works if passive
arming has been programmed.
•
Panic mode Enabled/Disabled when the ignition is turned on.
(Some states have laws against sirens sounding in moving cars.)
•
Forced passive arming On or Off. If your security system is programmed for passive arming and the forced passive arming feature has been programmed on, the system will passively arm after
one hour, even if a protected entry has been left open. Forced
passive arming ensures that the system will be armed if a door has
accidentally been left ajar when leaving the vehicle.
When the system passively arms after one hour, the entry point that
has been left open, and anything connected to the same zone, is
bypassed and cannot trigger the system. However, the remaining
inputs to the system are fully operational.
•

nuisance.
If your installer is programming the security system with the Directed Bitwriter, the full triggered response can be programmed
for any duration ranging from 1 to 180 seconds.
•
Siren tones and chirp volume. The output of the Revenger™ Soft
Chirp™ siren consists of six different tones in sequence. Any of
these tones can be eliminated by a dealer, resulting in a unique,
easily identifiable siren sound. The chirps can be either full volume
or 6 decibels quieter than the full alarm blast.
•
12, 24, or 60 minute run time. your system can be programmed
to allow the vehicle to run for 12, 24, or 60 minutes when remote
started. Can be set up to minute increments by your installer.
Note: If your installer is programming the system with the Bitwriter,® the remote start run time may be programmed for any duration ranging from 1 to 60 minutes.
•
3, 6, 9, or 12 minute timer mode run time. Your system can be
programmed to allow the vehicle to run for 3, 6, 9, or 12 minutes
when remote started in timer mode. Can be set from 1 to 16
minutes by your installer.
