safety feature of the vehicle periodically checked, wherein the vehicle must not
remotely start while the car is in gear. This testing should be performed by
an authorized Directed Electronics dealer in accordance with the Safety Check
outlined in this product installation guide. If the vehicle starts in gear, cease
remote start operation immediately and consult with the user to fix the problem
immediately.
© 2008 Directed Electronics—all rights reserved
 After the remote start module has been installed, test the remote start
module in accordance with the Safety Check outlined in this installation
guide. If the vehicle starts when performing the Neutral Safety Shutdown
Circuit test, the remote start unit has not been properly installed. The remote
start module must be removed or properly reinstalled so that the vehicle
does not start in gear. All installations must be performed by an authorized
Directed Electronics dealer. OPERATION OF THE REMOTE START MODULE IF THE
VEHICLE STARTS IN GEAR IS CONTRARY TO ITS INTENDED MODE OF OPERATION.
OPERATING THE REMOTE START SYSTEM UNDER THESE CONDITIONS MAY RESULT
IN PROPERTY DAMAGE OR PERSONAL INJURY. IMMEDIATELY CEASE THE USE
OF THE UNIT AND REPAIR OR DISCONNECT THE INSTALLED REMOTE START
MODULE. DIRECTED ELECTRONICS, INC. WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE OR
PAY FOR INSTALLATION OR REINSTALLATION COSTS.
 Remote starters for manual transmission pose significant risks if not
properly installed and operated. When testing to ensure the installation is
working properly, only remote start the vehicle in neutral gear, on a flat surface
and with a functional, fully engaged parking brake. Do not allow anyone to stand
in front of or behind the vehicle.
 This product should NOT be installed in any convertible vehicles, soft or hard
top. Installation in such vehicles may pose certain risk.

Installation points to remember
This product is designed for fuel-injected, automatic transmission, or vehicles
with manual transmissions.
Note: The default option “Manual” is a safety precaution that forces the installer
to enable the Manual Transmission Mode (MTS) routine or program the unit to the
“Automatic” option before the remote start can be activated for the first time.
The “Automatic” option will need to be programmed On to work with automatic
transmissions. When the “Manual” option is selected a specific routine is required before exiting the vehicle to enable the MTS mode.
Before beginning the installation
 Please read this entire installation guide before beginning the installation.
The installation of this remote start system requires interfacing with many of the
vehicle’s systems. Many new vehicles use low-voltage or multiplexed systems that
can be damaged by low resistance testing devices, such as test lights and logic
probes (computer safe test lights). Test all circuits with a high quality digital
multi-meter before making connections.
 Do not disconnect the battery if the vehicle has an anti-theft-coded radio.
If equipped with an air bag, avoid disconnecting the battery if possible. Many
airbag systems will display a diagnostic code through their warning lights after
they lose power. Disconnecting the battery requires this code to be erased, which
can require a trip to the dealer.
 If using an external LED or Valet Switch, check with the customer about where
to locate the switch.
 To avoid accidental battery drainage; turn off the interior lights or remove
the dome light fuse.
 Roll down a window to avoid being locked out of the car.
© 2008 Directed Electronics—all rights reserved
After the installation
 Test all functions. The “Using Your System” section of the Owner's Guide is
very helpful when testing.
 When testing, don’t forget that this system is equipped with Nuisance
Prevention® Circuitry (NPC). NPC can bypass trigger zones, making them appear
to stop working. See the Nuisance Prevention® Circuitry section.
 Review and complete the Safety Check section of this guide prior to the
vehicle reassembly.

Deciding on component locations
Siren
Some things to remember about mounting the siren:
■ Keep it away from heat sources, such as radiators, exhaust manifolds, turbochargers, and heat shields.
■ Mount it where a thief cannot easily disconnect it, whether the hood is open
or shut. Both the siren and its wires should be difficult to find. This usually in­
volves disguising the wire to look like a factory harness.
■ We do not recommend grounding the siren to its mounting screws. Instead,
we recommend running both the red and black wires into the passenger compartment and grounding to one common point for all devices. Both wires are
the same length and come already bonded together to make it easier. Whenever
possible, conceal your wires in the factory har­ness­es or in the same style loom
as the factory.
■ When possible, place the siren on the same side of the vehicle as the control
module, where its wires will reach the control module’s wires without extending
them. Always run the wires through the center of a grommet, never through
bare metal!
■ Point the siren down so water does not collect in it.

Control module
Some things to remember about where to mount the control module:
■ Never put the control module in the engine compartment!
■ The first step in hot-wiring a vehicle is removing the driver's side under-dash
panel to access the starter and ignition wires. If the control module is placed
just behind the driver's side dash it can easily be disconnected.
■ When mounting the control module, try to find a secure location that will
not require you to extend the harnesses’ wires (they are 1.5 meters long). Keep
it away from the heater core (or any other heat sources) and any obvious leaks.
Some good control module locations are: Above the glove box, inside the center
console, above the under-dash fuse box, or above the radio.

11
The control center
The control center position should be discussed with the vehicle’s owner prior to
installation. The LED and Valet switch is housed on the control center, so you will
want to make sure that the customer is satisfied with the location.
Doubleguard shock sensor
Since the shock sensor is built into the main unit, be sure to keep the shock sensor
performance in mind when deciding on a location for the main unit.
Note: In many vehicles, fastening the main unit (the brain) to a steering column
or screwing it to metal will result in poor sensitivity, especially at the rear of
the vehicle.
Valet® program switch
The valet/program switch is built into the control center.
Important! When the vehicle is delivered, please show the user where this switch
is lo­cat­ed and how to disarm the system with it.
Note: An optional valet switch (p/n #8631) is available if the onboard valet
switch is not used for the install.
When installing the external valet switch ensure that the location has sufficient
clearance to the rear. The switch should be well hidden. It should be placed so
pas­sen­gers or stored items (such as in a glove box or center console) cannot accidentally hit it. The switch fits into a 9/32-inch hole.
Status LED
The status LED is built into the control center. An optional LED (p/n 8634) is
available if the onboard LED will not be used for the install. The LED fits into a
9/32-inch hole.

Finding the wires you need
Now that you have decided where each component will be located, you are ready
to find the wires in the car that the security system connects to.
Important! Do not use a 12V test light or logic probe (computer safe test light)
to find these wires! Use a digital multi meter for all testing.
Obtaining constant 12V
We recommend two possible sources for 12V constant: the (+) terminal of the
battery, or the constant supply to the ignition switch. Always install a fuse within
12 inches of this connection. The fuse will also be powering other circuits such
as door locks and interface modules, so fuse accordingly.
Important! Do not remove the fuse holder on the red wire. It ensures that the
control module has its own fuse, of the proper value, regardless of how many accessories are added to the main power feed.
12V switched ignition wire
The ignition wire is powered when the key is in the run or start position. This is
because the ignition wire powers the ignition system (spark plugs, coil) as well
as the fuel delivery system (fuel pump, fuel injection computer). Accessory wires
lose power when the key is in the start position to make more current avail­able to
the starter motor.

Set to DCV or DC voltage (12V or 20V is fine).
Attach the (-) probe of the meter to chassis ground.
Probe the wire you suspect of being the ignition wire. The steering column
harness or ig­ni­tion switch harness is an excellent place to find this wire.
Turn the ignition key switch to the run position. If your meter reads (+)12V, go
to the next step. If it doesn’t, probe another wire.
Now turn the key to the start po­si­tion. The meter display should stay steady,
not drop­ping by more than a few tenths of a volt. If it drops close to or all
the way to zero, go back to Step 3. If it stays steady at (+)12V, you have
found an ig­ni­tion wire.
© 2008 Directed Electronics—all rights reserved
Starter wire
The starter wire provides 12V directly to the starter or to a relay controlling the
starter. In some vehicles, it is necessary to power a cold start circuit. A cold start
circuit will test exactly like a starter circuit, but it does not control the starter.
Instead, the cold start circuit is used to prime the fuel injection system for starting when the vehicle is cold.
How to find the starter wire with your multi meter:
1. Set to DCV or DC voltage (12V or 20V is fine).
2. Attach the (-) probe of the meter to chassis ground.
3. Probe the wire you suspect of being the starter wire. The steering column is
an ex­cel­lent place to find this wire. Re­mem­ber you do not need to interrupt
the starter at the same point you are testing.
4. Turn the ignition key switch to the start position. Make sure the car is not
in gear! If your meter reads (+)12V, go to the next step. If it doesn’t, probe
another wire.
5. Cut the wire you suspect of being the starter wire.
6. Attempt to start the car. If the starter engages, reconnect it and go back to
Step 3. If the starter does not turn over, you have the right wire.

15
Accessory wire
An accessory wire shows +12V when the key is in the accessory and run positions.
It does not show +12V during the cranking cycle. There are often more than one accessory wire in the ignition harness. The correct accessory wire powers the vehicle's
climate control system. Some vehicles may have separate wires for the blower motor
and the air conditioning compressor. In such cases, it is necessary to add relay to
power the second accessory wire.
Tachometer wire
Note: The system has Virtual Tach which automatically test the engine voltage in automatic transmission vehicles. The below wire test would be
used only if Virtual Tach or Voltage Mode is not working. When installing this unit on a manual transmission vehicle, the wire must be used.
To test for a tachometer wire, a multi meter capable of testing AC voltage must
be used. The tachometer wire will show between 1V and 6V AC. In multi-coil
ignition systems, the system can learn individual coil wires. Individual coil wires
in a multi-coil ignition system will register lower amounts of AC voltage. Also, if
necessary, the system can use a fuel injector control wire for engine speed sensing. Common locations for a tachometer wire are the ignition coil itself, the back
of the gauges, engine computers, and automatic transmission computers.
WARNING! Do not test tachometer wires using a test light or logic probe (computer safe test light). This will damage the vehicle.
How to find a tachometer wire with your multi meter:
1. Set to ACV or AC voltage (12V or 20V is fine).
2. Attach the (-) probe of the meter to chassis ground.
3. Start and run the vehicle.
4. Probe the wire you suspect of being the tachometer wire with the red probe
of the meter.
The wire should read between 1v and 6v and will normally change when
revving up the engine. If the voltage changes with engine speed, you have
the correct wire.

Wait-to-start bulb wire for diesels
Note: The system has a programmable onboard timer (See Menu#3 Feature 9), so
it is not necessary to connect the wait-to-start wire.
In diesel vehicles you can interface with the wire that turns on the WAIT-TOSTART light in the dashboard. This wire illuminates the bulb until the vehicle’s
glow plugs are properly heated. When the light goes out the vehicle can be
started. This wire is always available at the connector leading to the bulb in
the dashboard. It can also be found at the Engine Control Module (ECM) in many
vehicles.
To test for polarity of the wait-to-start wire:
1. Set your multi meter to DCV or DC voltage (12 or 20V is fine).
2. Attach the (+) probe of the meter to (+)12V.
3. Probe the wire that you suspect leads to the bulb with the (-) probe of the
meter.
4. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
5. If the meter indicates 12 volts until the light goes out, you have isolated
the correct wire. The wire's polarity is negative (ground while the bulb is
on).
If the meter reads zero volts until the light goes out and then reads 12 volts, you
have isolated the correct wire and the wire's polarity is positive.
Parking light wire
The parking light (+) or (-) wire is often found near the switch. Many cars have
the switch built into the turn signal lever, with the parking light wire found in
the steering column. The same wire is often available in the kick panel or running board.
Some newer vehicles have multiplexed circuits that will also need to be interfaced
with (check the vehicle information sheet) these cars usually require that the
switch be isolated (5 wired), this unit has a white/brown wire on the main harness to interface with these circuits without having to add an additional relay.
Note: Remember, you need a parking light wire that does not vary with the
dimmer setting.

17
How to find a (+) or (-) parking light wire with your multi meter:
1.
2.
Set to DCV or DC voltage (12V or 20V is fine).
If you are looking for a positive circuit attach the (-) probe of the meter to
chassis ground. If you are looking for a negative circuit, attach (+) probe of
your meter to +12V constant.
3. Probe the wire you suspect of being the parking light wire. Usually, the area
near the headlight/park­ing light switch is an excellent area to start, as is
the kick panel.
4. Turn on the parking lights. If your meter shows (+)12V, turn off the parking
lights and make sure it goes back to zero.
5. If the meter returns to zero, turn the parking lights back on and using the
dash light dim­mer con­trol, turn the brightness of the dash lights up and
down.
If the meter changes more than a volt when using the dimmer, look for an­oth­er
wire. If it stays relatively close to (+)12V, you have found your parking light
wire.

Door pin switch circuit
The best places to test for the door switch wire are:
 Pin switch
When testing at the pin switch, check the wire to ensure that it “sees” all the
doors. Often, the passenger switch will cover all the doors even if the driver’s
switch will not.
 Dome light
This may not be your best choice if the vehicle has delayed dome light supervision, but it will work in any vehicle with completely diode-isolated or normallyclosed pin switches.
Once you have determined the wire color, the easiest place to connect to the
wire is likely the kick panel, at the windshield pillar - or in the running board.
When an easy location is not available, running a wire to the dome light is the
best alternative.
How to find a door pin switch trigger wire with your multi meter:
1. Set to DCV or DC voltage (12V or 20V is fine).
2. If you are looking for a positive circuit fasten the (-) probe of the meter
to chassis ground. If you are looking for a negative circuit, fasten the (+)
probe of your meter to (+)12V con­stant.
3. Probe the wire you suspect of being the door trigger wire. If the meter reads
(+)12V when any door is opened, you have found a trigger wire.
Note: To ensure the wire “sees” all the doors, open each door and check the
meter reading.

Making your wiring connections
Before making your connections, plan how your wires will be routed through the
vehicle. For instance, the red 12V constant input and the remote start ignition
wires will often be routed together to the ignition switch harness. In order to
keep the wiring neat and make it harder to find, you may wish to wrap these
wires together in electrical tape or conceal them in tubing similar to what the
manufacturer used.
There are two acceptable ways of making a wire connection - solder con­nec­tions
and crimp connectors. When properly performed, either type of connection is
reliable and trouble-free. Regardless of whether you solder your connections or
you use mechanical-type crimp-on connections, ensure that all connections are
mechanically sound and that they are insulated.
Cheap electrical tape, especially when poorly applied, is not a reliable insulator.
It often falls off in hot weather. Use good-quality electrical tape or heat shrink.
 Never twist-and-tape the wires together without soldering.
 Never use “fuse taps”, as they can damage fuse box terminals.
If you use tapping connectors such as 3M T-Taps (not to be confused with ScotchLocks), avoid using them in higher-current applications (constant 12V, ground,
etc.) Some tapping connectors are inferior in quality and should be avoided.

Wire connection guides
Primary harness (H1)
H1/1 Red/white Aux/Trunk release , 200mA (-) outputt
When the system receives the code controlling trunk release output for longer
than 1.5 seconds, the red/white wire will supply an output as long as the transmission continues. This is typically used to operate a trunk/hatch release or other
relay-driven function.
Important! Never use this wire to drive anything but a relay or a low-current
input! The transistorized output can only supply 200mA of current. Connecting
directly to a solenoid, motor, or other high-current device will cause it to fail.
H1/2 RED (+)12V Constant power input
Before connecting this wire, remove the supplied fuse. Connect to the battery
positive terminal or the constant 12V supply to the ignition switch.
Note: Always use a fuse within 12 inches of the point you obtain (+)12V. Do not
use the 15A fuse in the harness for this purpose. This fuse protects the module
itself.

H1/6 VIOLET (+) Door trigger input, zone 3
This wire is used in vehicles that have a positive (+) switched dome light circuit.
Connect the violet wire to a wire that shows (+)12V when any door is opened, and
ground when the door is closed. This wire will report Zone 3.
H1/7 BLUE (-) Trunk pin /instant trigger input, zone 1
This input will respond to a negative input with an instant trigger. This is
ideal for a trunk pin. It can also be used with Directed single-stage sensors and
will report on Zone 1.
H1/8 GREEN (-) Door trigger input, zone 3
Most vehicles use negative door trigger circuits. Connect the green wire to a wire
which shows ground when any door is opened. In vehicles with factory delays
on the dome light circuit, there is usually a wire that is unaffected by the delay
circuitry. This wire will report Zone 3.

H1/9 BLACK/WHITE (-) 200 mA dome light supervision output
Connect this wire to the optional dome light supervision relay as shown below:
Important! This output is only intended to drive a relay. It cannot be connected
directly to the dome light circuit, as the output cannot support the current draw
of one or more light bulbs.
H1/10 WHITE/BLUE Remote start turbo timer (-) activation input
This input comes from the factory set to 1 activation pulse. This means that it is
necessary to have a single ground pulse on the white/blue wire for the remote
start to activate or to deactivate. This wire can also be used to activate the Turbo
Timer mode when the car is running and this wire receives a ground.
Note: The number of activation inputs can be programmed to 1 or 2 pulses with
an optional momentary switch This setting affects both the input wire and the
remote control when operating the remote starter.

H2/6 LIGHT BLUE (-) 200mA 2nd unlock output
This wire produces a (-) 200mA output for progressive locks in which the driver
door unlocks first and the remaining locks will unlock with a second press of the
unlock button on the remote.
Note: This feature will need to be programmed “On” to function correctly (see
System Feature Menu #1, feature 8)
H2/7 GRAY/BLACK (-) Diesel wait-to-start input
Connect this wire to the wire in the vehicle that sends the signal to turn on
the WAIT-TO-START bulb in the dashboard. In most diesels the wire is negative
(ground turns on the bulb) and the GRAY/BLACK wire can be directly connected
to the wire in the vehicle. If the vehicle uses a positive wire (12V to turn on the
bulb) a relay must be used to change the polarity.
Note: The system has a programmable onboard timer (See Feature menu#3, feature 9) so it is not mandatory to connect to the wait-to-start wire in the vehicle.
Note: A 1-amp diode must be installed in line on the factory wire between the
wait-to-start indicator and the ECM. (See the following diagram for details.)

Door lock wire diagrams
Important! Depending on the vehicle, the door locks may be controlled by an
optional data bus expansion module. If so, no door lock interface wiring is
required.
There are eight different types of door lock systems (Type A - H). Refer to the
vehicle-specific wiring instructions on the web and the chart below to help
determine which door lock system your vehicle uses.
Note: The more common type of door lock systems are Type A or Type B. Any other, Types C thru H, will require external relays or a Directed Electronics 451M.
Type A: Three-wire (+) pulse controlling factory lock relays.
Type B: Three-wire (-) pulse controlling factory lock relays.
Type C: Direct-wired reversing-polarity switches. The switches are wired directly
to the motors. This type of system has no factory relays.
Type D: Adding one or more aftermarket actuators. These include central locking
systems without an actuator in the driver’s door, but with factory actuators in
all the other doors.
Type E: Electrically-activated vacuum systems.
Type F: One-wire system - cut to lock, ground to unlock.
This is a very rare system found mainly in early 90’s imports and some newer
Hyundais.
Type G: Positive (+) multiplex.
resistor(s).
One wire controls lock and unlock using
Type H: Negative (-) multiplex. Same as Type G system, but uses (-) pulse
instead.
Note: You can use a 456L door lock learn module for Type G and H, instead of
relays and resistors.
34
© 2008 Directed Electronics—all rights reserved
Type A: Three-wire (+) pulse controlling factory lock relays
The system can control Type A door locks directly, with no additional parts. The
switch will have three wires on it; one will test (+)12 volt constantly. The others
will alternately pulse (+)12 volt when the switch is pressed to the lock or unlock
position.
If you cannot get to the switch, and you find a set of wires that pulse (+)12
volt alternately on lock and unlock, make sure that it is not a Type C direct-wire
system.
Here is a test: Cut the wire that pulses (+)12V on lock, and then operate the
switch. If the lock stops working, then you have the correct wire.
Important: Remember that these wires’ functions reverse between Type A and
type B.

FACTORY RELAYS
This system works similar to the Type A system, but uses a negative to control

Note: If your locks operate in the reverse, (lock when pressing unlock, and unlock
when pressing lock) then switch the lock/unlock wires and the locks will operate
correctly.
36
© 2008 Directed Electronics—all rights reserved
Type C: Direct-wired reversing polarity switches
Interfacing with a reversing polarity system requires either two relays OR one DEI
451M (not included).
It is critical to identify the proper wires and locate the master switch to interface
the door locks properly. This door lock system will be referenced on our vehicle
specific wiring information sheet as a system.
Locate wires that show voltage on lock and unlock. Cut one of the suspected
wires and check operation of the locks from both switches. If one switch loses
operation in both directions and the other switch operates in one direction only
the system is Type C; you have located one of the target wires. The switch that
lost all operation is the master switch.
If one switch works in both directions and the other switch works in only one
direction, you have a Type A system. If both switches still operate, but one or
more doors has stopped responding entirely, you have cut a motor lead. Reconnect it and continue to test for another wire. Once both wires have been located
and the master switch has been identified, cut both wires and interface as shown
in the following diagram.

Caution: If these wires are not connected properly, you will send (+) 12 volts
directly to (-) ground, possibly damaging the alarm or the factory switch.
Type D: Adding one or more aftermarket actuators
In order for this system to control one or more aftermarket actuators, a DEI 451M
(not included) or two relays are required. Vehicles without factory power door
locks require the installation of one actuator per door. This requires mounting the
door lock actuator inside the door.
Other vehicles may only require one actuator installed in the driver’s door, if all
door locks are operated when the driver’s lock is used. The fuse used on 12 volt
inputs should be 7.5A per motor installed in the vehicle.
Important: Do not connect the outputs of the alarm directly to the actuator.

Type E: Electrically-activated vacuum systems
Type E door locks are controlled by an electrically activated vacuum pump. Some
Mercedes and Audis use the Type E system. The control wire can be found in either
kick panel and will show (+)12 volts when doors are unlocked and (-) ground
when doors are locked and when turning the key in the driver or passenger door.
To interface, see diagram below. The system must be programmed for 3.5 second
door lock pulses.

Type F: One-wire system - cut to lock, ground to unlock
Type F door locks usually require a negative pulse to unlock and cutting the wire
to lock the door. In some vehicles, these functions are reversed. One relay (not
included) is used to interface to this type of system.

GREEN
BLUE
Single-Resistor Type
If one resistor is used in the door lock switch/key cylinder, the wire will pulse
ground in one direction and resistance to ground when operated in the opposite
direction.

If two resistors are used in the factory door lock switch/key cylinder, the door
lock switch/key cylinder will read resistance to ground in both directions.
To determine the resistor values, refer to the steps on page 43.
42
© 2008 Directed Electronics—all rights reserved
Determining the Proper Resistor Values
To determine the resistor values, the door lock switch/key cylinder must be isolated from the factory door lock system. For all testing, use a calibrated digital
multi meter that is set to ohms.
1. Cut the output wire from the door switch/key cylinder in half.
2.
Test with one meter probe on the switch side of the cut wire, if testing for
a positive circuit place the other probe to a constant (+)12V source. Good
constant (+) 12V references include the power input source to the door lock
switch/key cylinder, the ignition switch power wire, or the battery (+) terminal.
When testing for a negative, place one meter probe on the switch side of
the cut wire and the other probe to a good chassis ground. Good references
would include the ground input source to the door locks switch/key cylinder or on bare metal in the kick panel or the battery (-) terminal.
3.
Operate the door lock switch/key cylinder in both directions to determine
the resistor values. If the multi meter displays zero resistance in one direction, no resistor is needed for that direction.
4.
Once the resistor value(s) is determined, refer to the Type G or H wiring
diagram for proper wiring.

Heavy Gauge, 10-pin connector
There are 9 heavy gauge wires coming from the large 10-pin connector. They are
used to energize the ignition circuits in the vehicle. It is crucial that these connections are well made and capable of handling the current demands. For this reason, Scotch-Locks, T-taps and other such connectors are strongly discouraged.
H3/1 PINK – (+) Ignition 1 input/ output
Connect this wire to the ignition wire in the vehicle. This wire not only supplies
voltage for the ignition line in the vehicle, it is also the ignition feed for the
security system.

H3/8 PINK/BLACK – 87a of Ignition 2/Flex relay.
This wire is used when an ignition switch isolation on the vehicle is necessary.
This is common on Toyota and Nissans which required the use of Tech Tip document #1077. (See menu # 3 Feature 8 for programming options)
H3/9 RED/BLACK – 30a fused accessory/starter relay input
This wire is the polarity feed to the accessory and starter relays.
Remote start input - 5-pin connector
BLACK/WHITE Neutral safety switch input
Connect this wire to a ground source if installing this unit in an automatic transmission vehicle. If this unit is being installed in a manual transmission vehicle
then connect it to the emergency brake wire. This input MUST rest at ground in
order for the remote start system to operate.
Important! Always perform the steps outlined in Safety Check section to verify
that the vehicle cannot be started in ANY drive gear and that the override switch
is functioning properly.
VIOLET/WHITE Tachometer input
This input provides the module with information about the engine’s revolutions
per minute (RPMs). It can be connected to the negative side of the coil in vehicles with conventional coils. In multi-coil and high energy ignition systems
locating a proper signal may be more difficult. (See Finding the Wires You Need
section of this guide.) Once connected, you must teach the system the tach
signal.
Note: This wire MUST be used when installing this unit on a manual transmission.

BROWN (+) Brake shutdown input
This wire MUST be connected to the vehicle’s brake light wire. This is the wire
that shows (+) 12V when the brake pedal is depressed. The remote start will be
disabled or shut down any time the brake pedal is depressed. Note: This wire
MUST be used when installing this unit on a manual transmission.
GRAY (N/O or N/C) Hood pin shutdown input
This wire MUST be connected to a hoodpin switch. This input will disable or shut
down the remote start when the hood is opened. It will also trigger the security
system if the hood is opened while the system is armed and report Zone 6. (See
Feature Descriptions, Menu #1 feature 11 for details about programming.)
BLUE/WHITE (-) 200mA 2nd Status/defroster output
This wire supplies a 200mA output as soon as the module begins the remote start
process. The H3/1 BLUE wire can also be used to activate the defogger trigger
(latched/pulsed) 10-seconds after the remote start engages. (See the Feature
Descriptions, Menu#3, feature 11 for details about programming this output.)

Outputs for optional ext. remote start relays
These signals are provided to drive additonal optional relays.
PINK/WHITE (-) 200mA Flex Relay Control Output
This wire is programmed as (-) 2nd ignition output from factory and can be programmed (to drive a relay) as a (-) starter or accessory output.
ORANGE (-) 200mA Accessory output
This wire works like the main accessory wire and can be used (with a relay) to
drive any additional accessory circuits in the vehicle.
VIOLET (-) 200mA Starter output
This wire works like the starter wire and can be used (with a relay) to drive any
additional starter circuits in the vehicle.
PINK (-) 200mA ignition 1 output
This wire works like the ignition 1 wire and can be used (with a relay) to drive
any additional ignition circuits in the vehicle.
Note: Wires 1 - 4 on the remote start auxiliary outputs are wired to the (-)
triggers for the onboard remote start relays and are not diode isolated. If wiring these wires directly to the vehicle you must place a 1-amp diode in line to
prevent feedback from the vehicle.
BLUE (-) 200mA status output
This wire supplies an output as soon as the module begins the remote start process. It can be used to activate a bypass module or power the key sense wire in
most vehicles to disarm the factory alarm without unlocking.
Note: Check vehicle information to verify if a bypass module is needed or if the
key sense wire is needed.

Neutral safety switch interface
Some vehicles do not have an electrical neutral safety switch. Instead, the vehicle has a mechanical neutral safety switch that physically interrupts the starter
wire and is used when the vehicle is in any drive gear. If the remote start is
interfaced before this switch, it will provide protection from starting in gear.
However, some vehicles combine the column shift mechanism and the mechanical neutral safety switch into one mechanical part.
In these vehicles, you cannot interface the remote start system before the neutral
safety switch; it needs to be interfaced differently. With this type of vehicle, if
the car is left in a drive gear and the remote start system is activated, the vehicle
will move and may cause damage to persons or property.
According to available information, the only vehicles currently manufactured this
way are most General Motors trucks, sport utility vehicles and column shifting
passenger cars. Available information also indicates that pre-1996 Dodge Dakota
pickups with 2.5 liter motors are manufactured this way as well.
GM vehicles that have the neutral safety switch built into the column shifter
can usually be identified by a purple starter wire. Typically, vehicles that use an
outboard mechanical switch use a yellow wire from the ignition switch to the
mechanical switch and a purple wire from the mechanical switch to the starter
itself. Remember, this is only a rule of thumb and is not intended as a substitute
for proper testing.
We suggest the following procedure to test for vehicles manufactured in this
way.
Note: You must complete the remote start system installation before doing the
following test. Ensure that the remote start system is functioning normally. This
includes connecting to the brake as a shut-down.

Make sure there is adequate clearance to the front and rear of the vehicle
because it may move slightly.
Make sure the hood is closed and there are no remote start shut-downs
active.
Set the emergency brake.
Turn the key to the "run" position, this will release the shifter.
Place the car in drive (D).
Place your foot directly over the brake pedal, but do not depress it. Be ready
to step on the brake if the starter engages.
Activate the remote start system.
If the starter engages, immediately depress the brake to shut the remote
start system down. If the starter does not engage, no additional safety
system is required.
If the starter engages and the vehicle is a General Motors product or Dodge
Dakota pickup, refer to the following text and diagrams for an alternative shutdown method which will prevent the starter from engaging. If the vehicle is not
a General Motors product or a Dodge Dakota pickup, please call Directed Electronics Technical Support for an alternative shut-down method. Do not return the
vehicle to the customer until this feature is properly installed!
Every vehicle built in this fashion requires that the shifter be placed in park to
remove the keys from the ignition. As a result, it is possible to use the key-in-ignition sense switch to prevent remote starting if the keys are in the ignition. The
following diagrams illustrate how to accomplish this. The first diagram applies to
all General Motors vehicles that have failed the above test.
The second diagram applies to all pre-1996 Dodge Dakota pickup trucks with 2.5
liter motors. This solution has one side effect - if the customer inserts the key
in the ignition with the driver's door open, the remote start system will shut
down. If this interface is used it is important to inform the customer to close
the driver’s door before inserting the key into the ignition when the remote start
is active. This will allow the customer to turn the key on and shut the remote
start down by pressing the brake without the key sense wire shutting down the
unit prematurely.

However, due to future manufacturer changes in vehicles, it is possible that this
may not apply to all vehicles. In addition, color variations are possible from model
to model; make sure to test the circuit carefully. Please call Directed Electronics
Technical Support if you need assistance in making this interface.
Important! Once the interface is complete, attempt to remote start the vehicle
with the door closed and the key in the ignition. The vehicle should not start. If
it does, recheck the connections.

The LED and valet switch are incorporated into the control center the LED line
will plug into the white 2 pin port and the Valet switch line will plug into the
blue 2 pin port.
Note: Onboard LED and valet switch can be substituted with an optional outboard LED (P/N 8634 for Blue LED and 8633 for red LED) and an outboard valet
switch (P/N 8631).
Programmer interface - 3-pin black plug
The black 3-pin port is provided for programming the unit using the Bitwriter (p/
n 998T). When using the Bitwriter, it is possible to configure any and all of the
programmable functions as well as lock the Remote Control and System Features
Learn Routines so that unauthorized users cannot change the configuration or
program remote controls to the unit.
When the learn routines have previously been programmed using the
Bitwriter, they may have been locked. Before proceeding with reprogramming the learn routines, they must be unlocked with the Bitwriter
- this cannot be done manually with the Valet switch.
Note: Bitwriters require software v2.5. Bitwriters with date code of 6C or older
require an IC upgrade (p/n 998M). Bitwriter 2 compatible.

Optional sensors that may be used are: 508D Doubleguard Proximity Field Disturbance, 509U Ultrasonic Sensor, 506T Glass Break Sensor, and 507M Digital Tilt
Sensor.
This input can also be used for a second 504D Doubleguard Shock Sensor, or for
additional pin and magnetic switches.
Alarm trigger inputs shorter than 0.8 seconds will trigger the WarnAway response,
while inputs longer than 0.8 seconds will trigger the Full Alarm sequence.
Note: You will need to add a 4pin plug to interface with any hardwired switches.

Tach learning
To learn the tach signal:
1. Start the vehicle with the key.
2. Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Valet/Program
switch.
3. After 3 seconds the LED will light constant when the
tach signal is learned.
4. Release the Valet/Program switch.
53
Tach threshold On/Off
In most cases, this jumper can be left in the OFF position. Some new vehicles
use less than 12 volts in their ignition systems. The unit may have trouble
learning the tach signal in these vehicles. Changing the jumper to the ON setting changes the trigger threshold of the digital tach circuit so it will work
properly with these vehicles.
D2D Jumper settings
The security system has the ability to work with a compatible module through
the D2D lines. There are two settings: one for using an internal docking module,
(p/n 400N) or an external docking module. The factory setting is for the internal
docking module. When using an external module the jumper settings must be
changed.

Setting the light flash polarity
Light flash (+) / (-) polarity
The internal fuse is used to determine the light flash output. In the (+) position,
the onboard relay will output (+)12V on the WHITE wire, H1/11. In the (-) position, the on-board relay will supply a (-) output When wiring into a multiplex
circuit, you can replace the fuse with a resistor (paying attention to the polarity
setting). (Refer to diagram on p.26, H1/4 White/ Brown wire description).
Note: For parking light circuits that draw 10 amps or more, the internal jumper
must be switched to a (-) light flash output. P/N 8617 or a standard automotive
SPDT relay must be used on the H1/11 light flash output harness wire.

Remote control learn routine™
The remote uses a Supercode Protocol so the remote will need to be setup before
programming the system. To enter the remote setup mode you will need to hold
the “function” button on the remote until the remote gives a long beep and the
transmit LED comes on solid (approximately 8 seconds). Then press and hold the
“remote start” button until the remote beeps three times and the amber Transmit
LED lights up. Next enter the remote control learn routine and choose the function for “auto learn configuration” listed on the program grid.
Note: You do not need to go through the setup for the other features in the
menu.
The system comes with one 1-way and one 2-way remote control that are already
programmed to the system. The system can store up to 4 different remote control
codes in memory. After entering the setup mode on the remotes, use the following learn routine to add remote controls to the system.
The learn routine may be locked if previously programmed using the Bitwriter®.
If the siren generates one long chirp when attempting to program the unit,
the learn routine is locked and must be unlocked using the Bitwriter® before
proceeding.
The Valet/Program switch, plugged into the blue port, is used for programming.
There is a basic sequence to remember whenever programming this unit: Door,
Key, Choose, Transmit and Release.
1. Open a door. (The GREEN wire, H1/8, or the VIOLET,
H1/6 must be connected.)
2. Insert the key. Turn the ignition to the ON position.
The heavy gauge pink wire must be connected.

System features learn routine
The System Features Learn Routine dictates how the unit operates. It is possible
to access and change any of the feature settings using the Valet/program switch.
However, this process can be simplified by using the Bitwriter®. Any of the
settings can be changed and then assigned to one of four remote controls. This
feature is called Owner Recognition. Each time that particular remote control is
used to disarm the system, the assigned feature settings will be recalled. Owner
Recognition is only possible when programming the unit via the Bitwriter®.
If programming with the Bitwriter®, the learn routine can be locked or
unlocked. If the learn routine has previously been locked, it must be
unlocked with Bitwriter® - this cannot be done manually with the Valet
switch.
1. Open a door. (The GREEN wire, H1/8, or the VIOLET,
H1/6 must be connected.)
2. Ignition. Turn the ignition on, then off. (The heavy
gauge PINK wire must be connected.)
3. Select a Menu. Press and HOLD the Valet/Program
switch. (The Valet/Program switch must be plugged into the blue port.) After
three seconds the siren will chirp once indicating entry to the Basic Features
Menu. If this is the menu you want, release the button and go on to Step 4. If
the button is not released, the program jumps to the next menu and the siren
chirps twice. There are three possible menus. Once you have selected the menu
you want, release the Valet/Program switch.
60

4. Select a Feature. Press and release the Valet/Program
switch the number of times corresponding to the feature
you wish to change. For example, to access the third feature, press and release 3 times. Then press the button once
more and HOLD it. The siren will chirp the number of times
equal to the feature you have accessed.
5. Program the Feature. While holding the Valet/Program
switch, you can toggle the feature on and off using the
remote control. Pressing the button that arms the system
will select the one chirp or default setting. Pressing the
button that disarms the system will select the two chirp
setting.
Note: Some features have more than two possible settings. Pressing
will toggle through the two-chirp and higher settings.)
or
6. Release. Valet/Program switch.
Once a feature is programmed:
 Other features can be programmed within the same menu.
 Another menu can be selected.
 The learn routine can be exited if programming is complete.
© 2008 Directed Electronics—all rights reserved
61
To access another feature in the same menu:
1.
Press and release the Valet/Program switch the number of times necessary
to advance from the feature you just programmed to the next one you want
to program.
2. Then press the Valet/Program switch once more and hold it.
For example, if you just programmed the third feature in the menu and you want
to program the seventh feature in the menu, press and release the Valet/Program
switch four times and then press it once more and hold it. The siren will chirp
seven times to confirm access to the seventh feature.
To select another menu:
1.
2.
Press and hold the Valet/Program switch.
After three seconds, the unit will advance to the next menu and the siren
will chirp, indicating which menu has been accessed.
For example, if you just programmed some features in the first menu and you
want to program a feature in the third menu, press and hold the Valet/Program
switch. After three seconds, the siren chirps twice indicating access to the second menu. Continue to hold the button and three seconds later the siren will
chirp three times indicating access to the third menu. Features in the third menu
are then programmable following steps 4 through 6 of the System Features Learn
Routine procedure.
The learn routine will be exited if any of the following occurs:

Feature descriptions
The features of the system are described below. Features that have additional
settings that can be selected only when programming with the Bitwriter® are
indicated by the following icon:
Menu 1 - Security features
Default settings are in bold.
Note: The numbers in parentheses indicate the number of times the LED on the
antenna will flash.
1-1 ACTIVE/PASSIVE ARMING: When active arming is selected, the system will
only arm when the transmitter is used. When set to passive the system will arm
automatically 30 seconds after the last door is closed. To alert the consumer
of passive arming, the siren will chirp 20 seconds after the door is closed. This
provides the consumer with an audible warning prior to the system actually arming. At the 30 second mark the system will arm but the siren will not chirp.
1-2 PANIC ON: (1 LED flash) This feature controls whether or not the panic mode
is available with the ignition on. In some states there are laws prohibiting a
siren sounding in a moving vehicle. This feature makes the system compliant with
these regulations. The LED flashes twice (2) to indicate Panic with ignition OFF.
When Panic is OFF, the LED flashes (3)
1-3 Arm/disarm and Warn Away CHIRPS ON: (1) This feature controls the chirps
that confirm the arming and disarming of the system, Arm/Disarm chirps ON,
w/Warn Away chirps OFF (2), Arm/disarm chirps OFF, w/ Warn Away chirps ON (3),
Arm/disarm chirps OFF, w/Warn Away chirps OFF (4).
1-4 30 SEC SIREN DURATION:
It is possible to program the unit to sound for
30 or 60 seconds during the triggered sequence. Some states have laws regulating
how long a security system can sound.
When using the Bitwriter®, the siren can be programmed to sound for any length
of time from 1 second to 180 seconds.
66

1-5 IGNITION LOCKS OFF : (1) When turned OFF the alarm will not lock/unlock
the doors when ignition is turned on/off. (2) When turned ON the doors will lock
three seconds after the ignition is turned ON and the vehicles doors are closed,
and will unlock when the ignition is turned OFF. (3) Lock will only lock the doors
three seconds after the ignition is turned ON and the vehicles doors are closed.
4). Unlock only will unlock the doors when the ignition is turned off.
1-6 SINGLE PULSE LOCK/UNLOCK(1): The alarm will send out a single pulse
when locking and unlocking. (2) Double-pulse unlock will send out 2 pulses when
unlocking. (3) Double-pulse lock will send out 2 pulses when locking. (4) Doublepulse lock/unlock will send out 2 pulses when locking and unlocking.
1-7 0.8 sec DOOR LOCK PULSE (1)DURATION: The default setting is 0.8 second
door lock pulses. Some European vehicles, such as Mercedes-Benz and Audi, require longer lock and unlock pulses to operate the vacuum pump. Programming
the system to provide 3.5 second (2) pulses, will accommodate the door lock
interface in these vehicles. (See door lock connections section for wiring information regarding Type E door locks interfacing. The 0.4 second (3) pulse is required
on some vehicles where the lock wires can also control the windows and the 0.8
second pulse will cause the windows to open/close when locking or unlocking.
1-8 No 2nd UNLOCK output (1): The second unlock output is defeated at all
times. 2nd unlock ON with ignition control, after first unlock turns on the 2nd
unlock output and unlocks the passengers doors after the driver’s door is unlocked
with ignition controlled locks. (3) 2nd unlock on with ignition control with first
unlock will turn on the 2nd unlock output and will unlock the passengers doors at
the same time the driver door is unlocked with ignition controlled locks.
© 2008 Directed Electronics—all rights reserved
67
1-9 COMFORT CLOSURE OFF(1): The system can be programmed to close the
windows when the system is armed. If programmed ON, the lock output provides
a 20 second pulse when the system is locked. The output will be cancelled if the
unlock button is pressed. In the OFF setting the alarm will not do this function.
(2) Comfort closure 1 - Activates the 20 second timer after the door lock pulse.
(3) Comfort Closure 2 - Activates the 20 second timer with the door lock pulse.
Note: Comfort closure can only be used on cars that have the capability of closing the windows (and on some cars the sunroof as well) with the key cylinder in
the door.
1-10 HORN FUNCTION FULL ALARM ONLY (1): SIREN FUNCTION - chirp length
20mS (2) 30mS (3) 40mS (4) 50mS (5). Program for output when the alarm is
fully triggered or as the siren (arming/disarming and Warn Away and full trigger
with timing options).
1-11 HOOD TRIGGER (normally open): Hood trigger (normally closed). To program the the unit for either a normally open (rests open, or at 12v when the
hood is closed) or a normally closed (rests at ground when the hood is closed)
pin switch.
1-12 Sensor trigger (single) Sensor trigger double. When programmed on; any
2 sensors (zones 2, 4, 7) need to be triggered within 5 seconds of each other
to trigger the alarm. When programmed off; each sensor will trigger the alarm
independently.
68

Menu 2 - Convenience features
Default settings are in bold.
2-1 One time bypass OFF: One time bypass ON. When programmed On the unit
will not passively arm for one cycle when turning the ignition on and off within 3
seconds. When going through this procedure the siren will chirp once indicating
that One Time Bypass has been activated.
2-2 NUISANCE PREVENTION® CIRCUITRY (NPC) ON: Nuisance Prevention Circuity OFF. NPC stops repeated triggering of the same zone. If one zone is triggered
three times in one hour, that zone is bypassed for one hour, starting from the
time of the third trigger. During that hour, if the system sees a trigger on that
zone again, the system resets the one hour timer.
If one hour passes and the zone has not triggered again, the zone is activated
and can trigger the system again. NPC only monitors sensor inputs, and does not
bypass the door trigger or the ignition trigger at any time.
If NPC is turned off, the system will respond to repeated triggers on the sensor
inputs and will do so indefinitely. Some states have laws regulating how many
times a security system can trigger before it is considered a nuisance and the
vehicle is towed away.
2-3 Disarm from valet, 1 pulse. Disarm from valet, 2 - 5 pulses. The system can
be programmed to count the number of presses of the valet switch before disarming the security system. The factory default setting is one pulse. The unit can also
be set for two to five pulses.
2-4 Door trigger error chirp ON: Door trigger error chirp OFF. This feature controls the error chirp that is generated if the system is armed with the door trigger
active. This is useful in vehicles that have a long dome light delay after the door
has been closed. If the system is armed before the dome light has turned off, the
security system will generate the door trigger error chirp. If this error chirp is not
desired, use this feature to disable the door open error chirp. If the error chirp
is turned off, no bypass chirp will be generated, even if a door is accidentally
left open.
© 2008 Directed Electronics—all rights reserved
69
2-5 IGNITION CONTROLLED DOME LIGHT SUPERVISION ON: If turned on, the
system will turn on the dome light for 60 seconds when the ignition is turned
off. The optional dome light supervision feature must be installed as described
in the Wire Connection Guide. Use the two-chirp setting for: Ignition controlled
dome light OFF.
2-6 FAD w/channel 2 ON: FAD w/channel 2 OFF. In the default setting the factory alarm disarm output will disarm the factory alarm system any time the button controlling the trunk release output is pressed.
2-7 FACTORY ALARM DISARM-WITH UNLOCK, BEFORE UNLOCK, REMOTE START
ONLY: In the default setting the factory alarm disarm output will disarm the factory
alarm system any time the button controlling Unlock or Remote Start is pressed.
The “Before Unlock” output will disarm the factory alarm before the unlock output
activates and when remote start is activated. The “Remote Start Only” will disarm
the factory alarm only when the remote start is activated.
2-8 FAD 1 pulse: FAD 2 pulses. This setting determines how many pulses the
security system will output on the Factory alarm disarm wire.
2-9 Channel 1 Validity (1) Latched (2), Latch reset w/ignition (3), 30-sec.
timed (4)
 Validity: Output that will send a signal as long as the transmission is
received.
 Latched: Output that will send a signal when the Channel 1 button(s) is
pressed and will continue until the same button(s) is pressed again.
 Latched, reset with ignition: Similar to the latched output this output type
turns ON the first time the Channel 1 button (s) is pressed and turns OFF the
next the same button is pressed. This output type additionally stops and resets
whenever the ignition is turned ON, and then OFF.
 30-second timed: Output that will send a continuous signal for 30 seconds.

2-13 CHANNEL 3 Validity (1) Latched (2), Latch reset w/ignition (3), 30 -sec.
timed (4) Channel 3 can be programmed for these output configurations. The
unit is set to the default validity output. To change the configuration use the
two-chirp setting to toggle through the different configurations. Refer to feature
2-9 for additional details.
2-14 CHANNEL 3 Linking None (1) Arm (2) Disarm (3) Arm/Disarm (4) Smart
key control (link to remote start Off) (5). When channel 3 is programmed to
Smart Key control, this wire outputs a 800ms pulse when the remote start is
shut off.
The alarm also monitors the door trigger input so when the door is opened during the remote start runtime, the remote start shuts down and this wire outputs
the 800ms pulse.
Note: This wire is connected to the wire at the push button that start/stops the
car. It pulses the wire at the button to shut off the car when the remote start is
deactivated.
Menu 3 - Remote start options
Default settings are in bold.
3-1 MANUAL TRANSMISSION MODE: This is the default setting. The two-chirp
setting is used for Automatic transmission mode. In the default setting the
remote start unit is programmed to look for a shutdown procedure to activate
the remote start.
© 2008 Directed Electronics—all rights reserved
71
3-2 ENGINE CHECKING VIRTUAL TACH: (1) When set to “virtual tach” the remote start will monitor the cranking voltage of the vehicle and set that voltage
as a reference point. Fifteen seconds after the crank output sequence the remote
start checks the voltage again to determine if the vehicle is running.
When set to voltage, the unit cranks the starter for the programmed time and
then attempts to sense that the engine is running by detecting an increase in
voltage. When set to Tachometer, the unit references the learned tach signal to
disengage the starter. In addition it will monitor the RPM and shut down if the
engine RPM is too high or too low.
Note: The tach wire must be connected and programmed for the manual transmission mode to work.
3-3 CRANK TIME 0.6 0.8 (2) 1.0 (3) 1.2 (4) 1.4 (5) 1.6 (6) 1.8 (7) 2.0 (8) 4.0
(9) SECONDS: If the unit is programmed for no engine checking or voltage sense,
the crank time must be set to the appropriate duration. The default setting is 0.6
second and the LED will flash once. If a different crank time is desired, toggle
through the higher settings by using the two-chirp settings.
Note: The numbers in parentheses indicate the number of times the LED will
flash.
3-4 RUN TIME 12 (1), 24 (2) 60 (3) MINUTES:
Selects the time in minutes
that the system will operate the engine until the system "times out". The system
may be shut down using the remote or any of the shutdowns at any time. Using
the Bitwriter®, the run time can be programmed for any duration from 1-60
minutes.
3-5 ACTIVATION PULSE ONE: This allows the system to use 1 or 2 pulses to activate the remote start sequence. The default setting is 1-pulse.
Note: This setting affects both the input wire and the remote control.
3-6 TURBO MODE: OFF The factory default is OFF. ON - 1 min (2), 3 (3) 5 (4) 10
(5) MINUTES: There are two ways that “turbo timer mode” can be activated, one
by remote and the other manually.
To activate by remote the vehicle needs to be running. Press the
button
on the remote two times and then press
the remote start button. When you
receive a confirmation tone on the remote you can turn off the ignition, and the
car will remain running.
72
© 2008 Directed Electronics—all rights reserved
To activate manually a push button needs to be hardwired to the (-) activation
input on the remote start unit. When the vehicle is running press the button the
appropriate amount of times to activate the remote start (factory setting is for 1
pulse). The remote emits a confirmation tone. You can then turn off the ignition
and the car will stay running for the pre programmed amount of time.
Note: For this feature to work the “turbo timer run time” mode needs to be programmed ON and the tachometer wire on the remote start needs to be connected
and programmed.
3-7 TIMER MODE RUN TIME—12min (1), This is the default setting.
Selects
the time in minutes that the system will operate the engine until the system
"times out" when the remote start activates in timer mode. Use the two-chirp
setting for 3(2), 6 (3), 9 (4) MINUTES: This is the maximum operation period and
the system may be shut down using a shutdown at any time. Using the Bitwriter®,
the run time can be programmed for any duration from 1-16 minutes.
Note: The numbers in parentheses indicate the number of times the LED will
flash.
3-8 FLEX RELAY FUNCTION: Ignition 2 (1) In the factory setting, the flex relay
will function the same as the pink ignition 1 wire, in accessory setting the flex
relay will function the same as the Orange accessory 1 wire, in starter setting the
flex relay will function the same as the purple starter 1 wire.
3-9 DIESEL TIMER—WAIT-TO-START INPUT - Timed 15, 30, 45 SECONDS:
Default is the “Wait-to-Start” input control wire, or programmable to ignore the
input control wire by a delay of 15 (2), 30 (3), or 45(3) seconds. This feature can
also be optionally programmed with the Bitwriter®, with a delay from 1 to 90
seconds.
Note: The numbers in parentheses indicate the number of times the LED will
flash.
3-10 ACCESSORY STATE DURING WAIT-TO-START ON: This feature will allow the
selection of the accessory output to be ON or OFF during wait-to-start. Use the
two-chirp setting for OFF.

73
3-11 2nd STATUS OUTPUT: NORMAL: This feature will allow selection of status
output or a rear defogger mode that turns on ten seconds after the vehicle has
started if the vehicle interior temperature is below 55 degrees F. The defogger
mode has two selections, latched, the LED will flash twice, or pulsed, the LED will
flash three times. Latched mode will only stay on for 10 minutes.
Note: When the defogger mode is on, the output will always be active and can
be turned on independently with the remote for a one-time activation. (See the
Remote Functions table.)
3-12 PARKING LIGHTS CONSTANT: In the default setting, the parking lights (if
connected) will come on solid during the remote start runtime. In the two- flash
setting the parking lights will flash during the remote start runtime. In the OFF
setting, the parking lights will not come ON or flash, when the vehicle is remote
started.
3-13 ANTI-GRIND ON: With the anti-grind On (default) the ground-when-armed
output will be active during remote start operation. This activates the starter
kill relay and prevents the customer from re-cranking the car with the key, when
doing key takeover. If accessories such as a voice module or window module are
added to the unit, it may be necessary to use the two-chirp setting to program
this feature OFF.
3-14 TACH MODE STARTER RELEASE: Normal: Use the two-chirp setting to increase time by 15% of the original tach programmed time. The LED will flash
twice (2). To decrease by 15% of the original programmed time, the LED will
flash three (3) times.
3-15 Vehicle temperature auto report ON or OFF. The default setting is OFF.
When programmed ON the main unit will store the interior temperature of the
vehicle in its temporary memory. When the vehicles interior temperature changes
1 degree celsius, the main unit automatically send the interior temperature message to the remote and the LED’s light up accordingly. (See Owner’s Guide for
temperature description.)

Nuisance prevention circuitry
NPC requires that you change the way you test the system since NPC will bypass
an input zone for 60 minutes. If the system “sees” the same zone trigger three
times, and the triggers are spaced less than an hour apart, the system will bypass
that input zone for 60 minutes.
If that zone does not attempt to trigger the system during the 60-minute bypass
period, the zone’s monitoring begins again at the end of the hour. If it does attempt to trigger while bypassed, the 60-minute bypass starts over again.
Disarming and rearming the system does not reset NPC. The only way to reset
NPC™ is for the 60 minutes to pass without a trigger, or for the ignition to be
turned on. This allows the system to be repeatedly triggered, disarmed and rearmed, and still allow NPC to bypass a faulty zone.
When disarming the system, 5 chirps indicate NPC is activated. The LED will report the zone that has been bypassed. (See Diagnostics section of this guide.)

Valet mode
To enter or exit valet mode with the valet/program switch:
1. Turn the ignition key on and then off.
2. At anytime during the next 10 seconds, press and release the Valet switch. Now the Status LED will light constantly if you have entered Valet® Mode, and go out if you
have exited Valet Mode.
To enter or exit Valet mode with the remote control:
1. Open any door.
Press
two times, and then
to put the alarm into/out of Valet Mode. The
disarm LED flashes and the remote beeps once indicating entry into Valet mode.
Repeating the process takes the alarm out of Valet Mode. The disarm LED flashes
and the remote beeps twice.
Note: The security system’s LED will come on solid when in Valet Mode and will
shut off when exiting Valet Mode.
When locking the system in Valet Mode, the Lock and Function LEDs light for
one second and emit an error tone. When unlocking in Valet Mode, the Lock and
Function LEDs light for one second and emit 2 error tones.

Timer Mode
This unit can be programmed to start and run the engine every three hours,
for a maximum of six cycles. The engine will run for the programmed run time
and then shut down. After three hours, the system will restart the engine.
Important! Timer Mode should be used only in open areas. Never start and run
the vehicle in an enclosed space such as a garage or carport.
To enter or exit timer mode with the transmitter:
1. Remote start the vehicle by pressing
twice and then press
.
2. The parking lights will flash rapidly four times.
3. After 1 second the car will start and the timer mode will run for the specified time period.
The engine may run for its programmed run time, or the transmitter can be used
to shut down the engine. Either way, the remote start system will restart the
engine again in three hours. Timer Mode is exited automatically after the sixth
run cycle.
The same procedure may be used to enter or exit Timer Mode using the remote
transmitter and will slowly flash the parking lights 4 times when exiting.
To exit timer mode manually:
1. Make sure the remote start system is not operating the engine.
2. Turn the ignition on.
Timer Mode will be exited and the parking lights will flash slowly four times.
To enter turbo timer mode with a manual transmission:
Perform the manual transmission procedure (See p.78), with the door open.
Transmit the timer mode feature with the remote by pressing
two-times, and
then
. After exiting the vehicle, arm the alarm and the vehicle will remain
running for the programmed runtime. (The remote start feature is still enabled).
Note: The Bitwriter can change the amount of times the remote start will activate
and the intervals between activations in timer mode.

Long term event history
The system stores the last two full triggers in memory. These are not erasable.
Each time the unit sees a full trigger, the older of the two triggers in memory will
be replaced by the new trigger. To access long term event history:
1. With the ignition off, press and hold the Valet/Program
switch.
2. Turn on the ignition.
3. Release the Valet/Program switch.
4. Press and release the Valet/Program switch within 5
seconds. The LED will flash in groups indicating the last
two zones that triggered the unit for one minute or until
the ignition is turned off. Refer to table of zones.
Note: The Warn Away triggers are not stored to memory and will not be reported.

Remote starting diagnostics
When the remote start function is activated and emits an error tone; you have the
ability to see what the cause of the no-start situation is by counting the amount
of flashes of the parking lights from the vehicle.
5 flashes - Brake wire is active
6 flashes - Hoodpin wire is active
7 flashes - Manual transmission mode is enabled and not initialized.
8 flashes - Neutral safety wire has no ground or the neutral safety is Off.
Remote start safety check
Before vehicle reassembly, the remote system must be checked to ensure safe and
trouble-free operation. The following test procedure must be used to verify proper
installation and operation of the system. The installation must be completed before testing, including connection to the brake switch and hood switch.
1. Test the BRAKE shutdown circuit: With the vehicle in Park (P), activate the remote start system. Once the engine is running, press the brake pedal. The engine
should shut down immediately. If the engine continues to run, check the brake
circuit connection.
2. Test the HOOD PIN shutdown circuit: With the vehicle in Park (P), open the
hood. Activate the remote start system. The vehicle should not start. If the
starter engages, check your hood pin and connections.
3. Test the NEUTRAL SAFETY shutdown circuit.
Important! Make sure there is adequate clearance to the front and rear of the
vehicle before attempting this test.
1. Make sure the hood is closed and no other shutdown circuits are active.
2. Set the emergency brake.
3. Turn the ignition key to the run position but do not start the engine.
4. Put the vehicle in Drive (D).
5. Put your foot over the brake pedal but do not press down on it. Be ready to
step on the brake to shutdown the remote start system.
6. Activate the remote start system.

83
■ If the starter engages, immediately step on the brake to shut down the system. If it does engage, recheck the neutral safety input connection. The vehicle
may use a mechanical neutral safety switch. (See H3/1 BLACK/WHITE neutral
safety switch input in Remote Start Harness Wire Connection Guide section of
this guide.)
■ If the starter does not engage, the test is complete. Once the system passes
the three tests, the vehicle can be re-assembled and delivered. Do not the use
the remote start system or finalize the installation if it fails any of the safety
check tests.

Troubleshooting
Alarm
 Shock sensor doesn't trigger the alarm:
Has the NPC® system been triggered? If so, you will hear 5 chirps when disarming. To check this, turn the ignition key on and off to clear the NPC®'s memory,
and then retest the shock sensor. For a detailed description of NPC®, see Nuisance Prevention Circuitry section of this guide.
 Door input does not immediately trigger full alarm. Instead, chirps are
heard for the first 3 seconds:
That's how the progressive two-stage door input works! This is a feature of this
system. This is an instant trigger, remember, even if the door is instantly closed
again, the progression from chirps to constant siren will continue.
 Closing the door triggers the system, but opening the door does not:
Have you correctly identified the type of door switch system? This happens often
when the wrong door input has been used. (See Door Lock Harness Wire Connection Guide section of this guide.)
 System will not passively arm until it is remotely armed and then
disarmed:
Are the door inputs connected? Is the H1/6 blue wire connected to the door trigger wire in the vehicle? Either the H1/5 green or the H1/7 violet should be used
instead. (See wiring diagrams.)
 Door input does not respond with the progressive trigger, but with
immediate full alarm:
Does the Status LED indicate that the trigger was caused by the shock sensor?
(See Di­ag­nos­tics section of this guide.) The shock sensor, if set to extreme sensitivity, may be detecting the door unlatching before the door switch sends its
signal. Reducing the sensitivity can solve this problem.

85
 The Valet/Program switch doesn't work.
Is it plugged into the correct socket? See Plug-In LED and Valet/Program Switch
section of this guide.
 Status LED doesn't work.
Is it plugged in? (See Plug-In LED and Valet/Program Switch section of this
guide.) Is the LED plugged into the correct socket?
 Door locks operate backwards.
This unit has easily-reversed lock/unlock outputs. Recheck wire connections to
see if you have reversed these.
Remote start
 The remote start will not activate.
1.
2.
3.
Check remote startup diagnostics to determine what may be the cause of
the no start situation.
Check the harnesses and their connections. Make sure that the harnesses
are completely plugged into the remote start module. Make sure there are
good connections to the vehicle wiring.
Check voltage and fuses on the main 12-pin harness and on the heavy
gauge remote start harness.
 The remote start will activate, but the starter never engages.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
86
Check for voltage on the purple starter wire two seconds after the remote
start becomes active. If there is voltage present, skip to Step 4. If there is
not voltage present, advance to Step 2.
Check the 30A fuses.
If the gray/black wait-to-start wire is detecting ground upon activation,
the starter will not crank.
Make sure the purple starter wire is connected on the starter side of the
optional starter kill/anti-grind relay.
Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? Some immobilizer systems will not
allow the vehicle to crank if active.
© 2008 Directed Electronics—all rights reserved
6.
Check connections. The heavy gauge remote start input wires on the heavy
gauge 10-pin connector should have a solid connection. "T-taps" or "scotch
locks" are not recommended for any high current heavy gauge wiring.
 The vehicle starts, but immediately dies.
1.
2.
3.
Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? The vehicle’s immobilizer will cut
the fuel and/or spark during unauthorized starting attempts.
Is the remote start programmed for virtual tach voltage sense? If so, the
crank time may not be set high enough. Voltage sense will not work on
some vehicles.
Check diagnostics. Sometimes a shutdown will become active during cranking or just after cranking.
 The vehicle starts, but the starter keeps running.
1.
2.
3.
Is the system programmed for engine checking off or virtual tach voltage
sense? When programmed for either of these features, the engine cranks
for the preprogrammed crank time regardless of how long it takes for the
vehicle to actually start. Adjust to a lower cranking time.
Was the Tach Learn successful? The LED must light solid and bright to
indicate a successful learn.
Make sure that there is a tach signal at the purple/white tach input wire
of the remote start. If there is not a tach signal, recheck the connection to
the vehicle’s tach wire and make sure the wire is not broken or shorted to
ground leading to the remote start.
© 2008 Directed Electronics—all rights reserved
87
 The vehicle will start, but will only run for 10 seconds.
1.
2.
Is the remote start programmed for voltage sense? If this does not work, a
tach wire should be used.
Check diagnostics.
 The climate control system does not work while the unit is operating the vehicle.
Either the wrong accessory wire is being energized or more than one ignition or
accessory wire must be energized in order to operate the climate control system.
