adequate ventilation. Failure to observe this rule could result in injury or death from poisonous CarbonTo
ensure the safety and security of the system while it is remote started, the Galaxy Starter employs several
safeguards. In the event the brake pedal is pressed while the engine is remotely running, the remote start
will immediately shutdown to prevent unauthorized users from attempting to drive the vehicle. The system
is equipped with a hood pin input to prevent access to the engine compartment while the vehicle is
remotely running. Finally, the Valet Mode prevents the remote start feature from operating in the event the
vehicle is to be serviced.

• 16-Pin main harness • 3-Pin door lock harness
• 2-Pin LED harness
• 2-Pin Override Switch harness
3.
Verify vehicle is equipped with electronic fuel injection, and starts/idles normally before
installation.
4. Determine if vehicle is equipped with a factory theft deterrent system and obtain proper bypass
module if required.
5. Find a location to mount the hood pin switch that will not interfere with the opening of the hood,
and is not in a position that can accumulate water. The hood pin is a safety device that must be
installed to avoid remote starting during engine servicing.
6. Verify with the owner, mounting locations for all visible components, including the LED and Valet
switch.
7. Verify with the owner, the optional features of the Galaxy Starter and the features that must be
programmed during installation.
8. Inspect and perform a function test of all vehicle systems before and after the installation.
9. Always use a Volt / Ohm meter for testing vehicle circuits. Never use a test light.
10. Always look before drilling any holes or mounting self-tapping screws. Be sure fuel lines and
exterior wiring looms are clear as they are often close to the chassis and difficult to see.
11. Protect all wires running from the engine compartment to the interior of the vehicle by covering
with electrical tape and split loom tubing. Be sure to use a grommet when routing wires through
the firewall.
12. Properly fuse any additional accessories such as window modules, door lock actuators, etc.,
making sure to power them separate from the alarm module. This will ensure the functionality of
the security system in the event of an accessory failure.
Mounting the Control Unit
The control unit must only be mounted in the interior of the vehicle. Do not mount the main
unit in the engine compartment. Choose a mounting location that will not be easily accessible
to a thief, and will not interfere with the operation of any vehicle components such as foot
pedals, steering column, air vents, seat rails, etc.
Do not mount the control unit until after setting the internal jumpers and performing a complete
operation check of the system. After installation is complete and performance verified, the
control unit can be easily mounted using wire ties through the mounting tabs on the bottom of
the unit.

Programmable System Options
The following is a description of the programming options of the system. Some of the program branches
control more than one option, and may require accessing a particular branch number twice in order to
program all desired features.
1. Ignition Door Locking. Selects whether or not the system will automatically lock the doors 5 seconds
after the ignition key is turned on.
2. Ignition Door Unlocking. Selects whether or not the system automatically unlocks the doors when
the ignition is turned off.
3. Door Unlock Pulse. Selects between one pulse or two pulse operation for the door unlock output.
Many new import vehicles’ factory door locking systems require two pulses on the proper wire to unlock
the doors. These systems can be interfaced directly without the use of relays or any additional circuitry
by programming the system for double unlock pulse.
4. Door Lock Pulse Length. Selects between a 1, 3 and 0.1 second output for door locking and
unlocking. Program to 3 seconds for vehicles equipped with vacuum door locking systems.
5. Aux 1 Mode. Selects from momentary, 10 second timed, or latched operation for Auxiliary 1.
Astra 1000RS - Page 15
Momentary operation provides an output for as long as the transmitter button is pressed.
Timed operation provides an output that turns on for 10 seconds each time the transmitter button is
pressed. If the button is pressed again during the 10 seconds, the output will turn off.
Latched operation provides an output that turns on when the transmitter button is pressed and remains
on until the transmitter button is pressed again.
6. Unlock with Aux 1. Selects whether the doors should unlock when you press the trunk button.
7. Start in Valet Mode. Selects if vehicle should start when in Valet.
8. Lock after Start. Selects if doors should lock upon Remote Start.
9. Lock after Shutdown. Selects if doors should lock when Remote Start Aborts.
10. Engine Run Time. Selects between 15 or 25 minutes for the remote start run cycle.
11. Automatic Start Mode. Select to automatically start vehicle every 1 or 2 hours.
12. Tachless Sense Crank Time. Selecting engine crank time automatically selects the tachless mode
and one of three crank times.
If the normal engine crank time is too short increase the time by selecting one of the two additional
extended crank time options.
Normal 0.8Sec.
Extended 1.0Sec.
Super Extended - 1.4Sec.
Tachless Mode. Determines the engine status using an advanced software routine, without requiring
connection to the vehicle’s tachometer. Tachless operation may not be compatible with some vehicles
or in severe temperatures, in which case the tach wire must be connected.
13. Remote Start Program. This dual program branch sets the engine mode for Gas or Diesel, and
learns the vehicle’s RPM threshold. Learning the RPM threshold automatically selects the RPM
monitor mode. For installation into a diesel equipped vehicle, first set the engine type to diesel
before learning RPM.
Tach Monitor Mode. Monitors the vehicle’s tach wire (or a fuel injection wire) in real-time to determine
engine status and adjust starter crank time automatically. If programmed for Tach Monitor, the vehicle’s
tach signal will have to be learned before initial operation (see below).
RPM Learn. Start the engine, enter Branch 21 and press Button 1 to learn the vehicle’s tach signal.
The siren will chirp and the LED will flash once to confirm learning of the tach signal and entering Tach
Monitor Mode. The siren will chirp four times and the LED will flash four times if the tach signal was not
learned, engine sense mode will not be changed.
Gas Engine. Sets the engine type for Gasoline.
Diesel Engine. Sets the engine type for Diesel and monitors the glow plug input to make sure the glow
plugs are warm before cranking the starter. If the glow plug wire is not connected, the built-in timer
waits 15 seconds before automatically cranking the starter.
14. Ignition 2 Relay Program. Selects one of three operating modes for the Ignition 2 relay output:
Ignition 2, Accessory 2, or Starter 2.
15. Turbo/Manual Transmission Start. Turbo Mode - When enabled allows you to leave the vehicle
while the engine is still running (2 Minutes) in order to cool down the turbo. A connection to the
parking brake is required for this feature. Manual Transmission Ulternate Start Mode - When
enabled starts the remote start activation process automaticaly when the immergency brake is ingaged.
