A note concerning the battery inside the transmitter:
Depending on the usage of the transmitter, the battery can last anywhere
between 3 to 6 months. When the battery is low, it the transmitter will emit two
beeps in a repetitive cycle. At that point you should replace your battery with a
new one. That is why we recommend that you keep a spare battery somewhere
handy such as the glove compartment.

If your Remote Car Starter was installed with the Remote Door Locks option, you will have the
convenience of remote keyless entry. See section Arming and Disarming the Remote Car
Starter, earlier in this Guide, for further instructions on remote door locking and unlocking.
Priority Door Access
If the Remote Door Locks option is installed on your vehicle, this safety feature allows you unlock
solely the driver’s door with a single press of the UNLOCK button on the transmitter; upon a second
press of the UNLOCK button, all the other doors will unlock.
Active or Passive Arming
The Starter Kill can be configured either to Passive Mode (so as to arm automatically) or Active
Mode (so as to require user intervention for arming). By default, your Remote Car Starter is
configured to Passive Mode. In Passive Mode, the Starter Kill will automatically arm 60 seconds
after the last door is closed. The Remote Car Starter will not arm if a door is left open, or if you reopen a door within the 60-second delay.
Important note: When the Remote Car Starter re-arms automatically, you can disarm the
When the Remote Car Starter by simply pressing the UNLOCK button.
The Starter Kill and the Anti-grind Feature
With this added security feature, the system will prevent your vehicle from starting with the ignition
key when the Starter Kill is armed. If your Remote Car Starter was installed with the Starter Kill
option, one will not be able to start your vehicle with the key unless the system has been unlocked
and disarmed first, or put into Valet Mode.
Note: If the Starter Kill is installed, your vehicle will benefit from a protection against starter
motor damage that could occur after remote-starting the engine should the user, by force of
habit, turn the ignition key to the CRANK position.
AS-2510 TW User Guide
P. 12
Horn Chirp Timing
The duration of the chirps can be adjusted at installation (from 5 to 200 ms).
Flashing LED
The user may decide to turn on or off LED flashing at any moment. To do so, simultaneously press
the TRUNK and LOCK buttons on the transmitter:
x Flashing LED ON: the L.E.D. will flash at all times (either under active arming or under passive
arming) to indicate that the Starter Kill is active.
x Active Arming: the LED will flash normally.
x Passive Arming: the LED will flash at a faster rate during the countdown preceding the
activation
of
the
Starter
Kill.
Once
the
Remote
Car
Starter
is armed, the LED will flash at a slower rate.
x In Valet Mode: the LED will remain lit without flashing.
x Flashing LED OFF: the LED will not flash even when the Remote Car Starter is armed (either
under active or passive arming). Nevertheless, if the Remote Car Starter enters Valet Mode, the
LED will still remain lit without flashing as long as the ignition is off.
Safe Start
If this feature is enabled, the user must press the START button 2 times within 3 seconds to remotestart the vehicle. This will eliminate accidental remote starts, e.g. when children are playing with the
transmitter.
If Swap Start Mode is selected, to remote-start your vehicle press LOCK and UNLOCK
simultaneously. The AUX 2 output can be activated by pressing the START button.
Home Valet TM
If this feature is installed, the user will have the possibility to remotely set the vehicle to a noremote-start mode. See Home Valet section, earlier in this Guide, for full instructions.
Ignition-controlled Door Locks
This is an added security feature. If your Remote Car Starter was installed with the IgnitionControlled Door Locks option, the doors will automatically be locked as soon as the ignition key is
turned to the IGNITION ON (RUN) position while the brakes are pressed. When the key is turned to the
OFF position, the doors will automatically be unlocked.
Ignition Re-lock
On Remote Car Starters of this series, when Ignition-controlled Door Locks are enabled and the
ignition key is in the IGNITION ON (RUN) position, should any door be unlocked and opened, all doors
will be relocked next time the brake pedal is pressed.
Secure Lock
Before it can remote-start your vehicle, the Remote Car Starter must first disarm the factory
security system. The Secure Lock feature may be required on certain vehicle models with factory
security systems that automatically unlock the doors when the security system is disarmed.
To keep your vehicle protected when the factory security system is disarmed for a remote start,
Secure Lock will relock your doors as soon as the vehicle has started. Once the engine run cycle
ends, Secure Lock will rearm your factory security system.
Turbo Mode
When left in Turbo Mode, the Remote Car Starter will keep the engine running for 60 seconds
before shutting it down. This is to allow a turbocharger to idle down after the user leaves the
vehicle. See Turbo Mode section earlier in this Guide.

Troubleshooting Poor Transmitting Range
Many factors may affect the operating range of the transmitter. Some of these are:
x The condition of the battery in the transmitter.
x The operating environment (for example: downtown radio-frequency noise, airports, cellular
phone towers…)
x Metal: any type of metal will affect operating range. This includes the metal in the car.
x The shape of the vehicle can affect range as well; vans in general have an especially poor
range.
x The shape of the roof and A-pillars brings about considerable radio-frequency deflection (in
this case the signal from the remote control). As a result, the direction in which the vehicle is
facing in relation to the remote control can affect the range. Straight on – standing in front of
the vehicle – generally gives you the greatest range; the second best performance is from the
back. Using the remote control from either side of the vehicle will usually give the lowest
range.
x The range will be significantly lower in a crowded parking lot than in open space.
x Always hold the transmitter high, approximately at shoulder height. Holding the transmitter
against your chin will also increase your range: your head acts as an antenna.
x The operating range will be somewhat lower on vehicles equipped with an aftermarket or
factory alarm.
