Tach Learning
To learn the tach signal:
1. Start the vehicle with the key.
2. Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Valet (Control) button.
3. After 3 seconds the system LED will light constant when the tach signal is learned.
4. Release the Valet (Control) button.
Important: This unit can learn the tachometer with the analog
input or through D2D using an interface module. The unit confirms which source is used.
When programming tach learning with:
• Analog, the parking lights flash one time
• D2D inerface module, the parking lights flash twice
If the tachometer input on the system is connected to the vehicle, the D2D tachometer input will be ignored.
Virtual Tach
Note: Virtual tach is not recommended for diesel vehicles.
To program Virtual Tach:
1.
2.
3.
4.
After the install is complete, remote start the car.
If the car does not start on the first attempt, let the remote start attempt again.
Once the car starts, let it run until the parking lights come on.
When the parking lights come on, shut off the remote start with the remote - that’s it! Virtual Tach is programmed.
Virtual Tach handles disengaging the starter motor during remote starting – it does not address over-rev. If
the customer wants to have the over-rev protection capability, the tach wire must be connected. This may
involve more installation shop charges than initially quoted.
Important: If the Virtual Tach mode over cranks or
doesn't crank the vehicle long enough to start and run
the car, use the Bitwriter to add or subtract the starter
output time. You can adjust the output time in increments of 50msec of the learned time using the Bitwriter.

Neutral safety switch interface
Some vehicles do not have an electrical neutral safety switch, but instead have a mechanical neutral safety
switch that interrupts the starter wire when the vehicle is in any drive gear. The remote start must be interfaced
before the neutral safety switch , to provide protection from starting in gear. However, some vehicles combine
the column shift and the neutral safety switch into one mechanical part, and in this case you will not be able
to interface the remote start before the neutral safety switch.
Important: 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.
Testing the neutral safety switch
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
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 releases 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.
7. Activate the remote start system.
8. 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
www.directechs.com for Document 1008 under the Resource tab. For an alternative shut-down method
which prevents 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!

Reset and deletion
If a feature/virtual tach needs to be reset or the remote controls need to be deleted, use the following procedure.
1. Turn the ignition to the ON position (The heavy gauge pink wire must be connected).
2. Within 10 seconds, press and release the Valet button: 2 times if you want to delete remotes, 3 times to
reset features or 4 times to reset virtual tach. These features are described next.
Delete remotes: This feature erases all remotes from the memory of the system. This is useful in cases
when a customer’s remote is lost or stolen.
Note: This does not reset the programmed features of the system or reset the Virtual Tach setting.
Reset Features: This resets all features of the system to the factory default settings.
Note: This feature does not delete the remotes from the system or reset the Virtual Tach setting
Virtual Tach Reset: Deletes all previously learned values for Virtual Tach, and on the next remote start
sequence the unit begins virtual tach initialization.
Note: The “Zap” feature on the Bitwriter does not reset the Virtual tach setting.
3. Once you have selected the function step, press the Valet button once more and hold it. The LED flashes
and the horn honks to confirm the selected functional step. Do not release the Valet button
4. While holding the Valet button, press the
button on the remote control. The horn honks to confirm that
the feature has been successfully reset.
AUX
Once the feature is reset, the Valet button can be released.
Troubleshooting: Keyless entry
Door locks operate backwards.
• This unit has easily-reversed lock/unlock outputs. Recheck wire connections to see if you have reversed these.
Troubleshooting: Remote start
The remote will not activate the remote start
1. Does the neutral safety input have a ground? if the wire is not grounded the remote start will not
activate.
2. Have you performed the remote start shutdown diagnostics? Sometimes an active shutdown input will
report in the diagnostics.
3. Is the remote programmed to the system?
4. Can the remote start be activated manually by applying a ground pulse to the H1/4 White/Blue
wire?
5. 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.
6. Check voltage and fuses on the system.
© 2012 Directed. All rights reserved.
17
The remote start will activate, but the starter never engages.
1. Check for voltage on the purple starter wire two seconds after the remote start becomes active. If
there is voltage present, skip to Step 5. If there is no voltage present, advance to Step 2.
2. Check the 30A fuses.
3. If the wait-to-start timer is turned on, the starter will not crank.
4. Is the tach wire connected? If so disconnect it and remote start the vehicle to see if the purple wire
sends out voltage. If you get voltage, go to an alternate tach source. The tach wire you are currently
on has a voltage spike when the ignition is powered up, which can cause the remote start to not send
out the crank voltage.
5. Is the vehicle a Chrysler or GM with a multiplexed starter wire? The vehicle will not crank if the resistance is incorrect on the multiplexed accessory/starter wire.
6. Is the vehicle a GM? If so the Brown 2nd accessory needs to be powered up on some of the vehicles
for the vehicle to crank.
7. Make sure the purple starter wire is connected on the starter side of the optional anti-grind relay.
8. Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? Some immobilizer systems will not allow the vehicle to crank
if active.
9. Check connections. The heavy gauge remote start input wires on the heavy gauge 6-pin connector
should have a solid connection.
The vehicle starts, but immediately dies.
1. Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? The vehicle’s immobilizer can cut the fuel and/or spark during
unauthorized starting attempts.
2. Is the remote start programmed for virtual tach or voltage sense? If so, the crank time may not be set
high enough. Voltage sense will not work on some vehicles.
3. Is the remote start in tach mode? If so has the tach been programmed to the system?
4. Check diagnostics. Sometimes a shutdown will become active during cranking or just after cranking.
The vehicle starts, but the starter keeps running.
1. Is the system programmed for engine checking off or virtual tach voltage sense? When programmed

3. 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.
4. Is an ignition or accessory output wire connected to the starter wire of the vehicle? Verify the color
of the starter wire in the vehicle and confirm that an ignition or an accessory output is not connected
to that wire.

1. Is the remote start programmed for voltage sense? If this does not work, a tach wire should be
used.
2. Check shutdown diagnostics.

1. 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.

then back on, unfortunately this is a function of the vehicle and cannot be bypassed.
