RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE OR PERSONAL INJURY. IMMEDIATELY CEASE THE
USE OF THE UNIT AND REPAIR OR DISCONNECT THE INSTALLED REMOTE START
MODULE. DIRECTED WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE OR PAY FOR INSTALLATION OR REINSTALLATION COSTS.
Installation Points to Remember
IMPORTANT! This product is designed for fuel-injected, automatic transmission
vehicles only. Installing it in a standard transmission vehicle is dangerous and is
contrary to its intended use.
Before Beginning the Installation
➤
➤
Please read this entire installation guide before beginning the installation. The installation of this
remote engine starting 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.
Check with the customer on LED status indicator location.
Remove the domelight fuse. This prevents accidentally draining the battery.
Roll down a window to avoid being locked out of the car.
Finding the Tachometer Wire
To test for a tachometer wire, a multimeter 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.
IMPORTANT! Do not test tachometer wires using a test light or logic probe! This will
damage the vehicle.
How to Find a Tachometer Wire With Your Multimeter
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.
5. If this is the correct wire the meter will read between 1V and 6V.
Finding the Wait-To-Start Bulb Wire for Diesels
In diesel vehicles it is necessary to interface with the wire that turns on the wait-to-start 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.
How to Test and Determine the Polarity of the Wait-To-Start Wire
1. Set your multimeter 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 and the
wire's polarity is negative (ground while the bulb is on).
6. 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.
After the Installation
➤
➤
➤
Test all functions. The “Using Your System” section of the Owner's Guide is helpful for testing.
When testing, don’t forget that this system is equipped with False Alarm Control Technology
(FACT). FACT can bypass trigger zones, making them appear to stop working. See the False
Alarm Control Technology section of this guide.
Review and complete the Safety Check section of this guide prior to the vehicle reassembly.

H1/1 ORANGE (-) Ground-When-Armed Output
This wire supplies a (-) 500 mA ground as long as the system is armed. This output ceases as soon
as the system is disarmed. The ORANGE wire is pre-wired to control the Directed P/N 8618
starter interrupt relay.
NOTE: If connecting the H1/1 ORANGE wire to control another module, such as a P/N 529T or
P/N 530T window controller, a 1 amp diode (type 1N4004) is required. Insert the diode as shown
in the following diagram:
IMPORTANT! Never interrupt any wire other than the starter wire.
H1/2 WHITE (+/-) selectable light flash output
As shipped, the H1/2 WHITE wire should be connected to the (+) parking light wire. If the light
flash polarity jumper near the main plug is moved to the opposite position (see the Programming
Jumper section of this installation guide), this wire supplies a (-) 200 mA output. This is suitable for
driving (-) light control wires in Toyota, Lexus, BMW, some Mitsubishi, some Mazda, and other
models.
NOTE: For parking light circuits that draw 10 amps or more, the jumper must be switched to a
(-) light flash output. (See the Programming Jumpers section of this guide.) P/N 8617 or a standard
automotive SPDT relay must be used on the H1/2 light flash output harness wire.

(+) POSITIVE LIGHT FLASH OUTPUT
(-) LIGHT FLASH OUTPUT
H1/3 WHITE/BLUE Remote Start (-) Activation Input
A momentary input on this wire will start or stop the motor, just as transmitting Channel 3 from
the remote transmitter does. It is often connected to an optional momentary push-button switch to
make access to Valet Take Over Mode and Timer Mode more convenient.
H1/4 BLACK /WHITE (-) 200 mA Domelight Supervision Output
Connect this wire to the optional domelight supervision relay as shown in the following diagram.
IMPORTANT! The H1/4 output is only intended to drive a relay. It cannot be connected
directly to the domelight circuit because the output cannot support the current draw of
one or more light bulbs.
www.clifford.com
9
H1/5 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 domelight circuit, there is
usually a wire that is unaffected by the delay circuitry. This wire will report Zone 3.
H1/6 BLUE (-) Multiplex Input, Zone 4
Inputs shorter than 0.8 seconds will trigger the Warning Zone response, while inputs longer than
0.8 seconds will trigger the full alarm sequence. If installing an optional Directed dual stage sensor,
connect both the blue and the green wires of the optional sensor to this input. This wire will report
Zone 4.
H1/7 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.

H1/8 BLACK (-) Chassis Ground Connection
Remove any paint and connect this wire to bare metal, preferably with a factory bolt rather than
your own screw. (Screws tend to either strip or loosen with time.) We recommend grounding all
your components, including the siren, to the same point in the vehicle.
H1/10 BROWN (+) Siren Output
Connect this to the red wire of the siren. Connect the black wire of the siren to (-) chassis ground,
preferably at the same point you connected the control module’s black ground wire.
H1/11 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.
IMPORTANT! 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.
H1/12 RED/WHITE Channel 2, (-) 200 mA Output
When the system receives the code controlling Channel 2, for longer than 1.5 seconds, the
red/white wire will supply an output as long as the transmission continues. This is often used to
operate a trunk/hatch release or other relay-driven function.
www.clifford.com
11
IMPORTANT! Never use this wire to drive anything except a relay or low-current input!
The transistorized output can only supply 200 mA of current. Connecting directly to a
solenoid, motor, or other high-current device will cause it to fail.

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. Here are some
common colors of this wire:

Chevrolet and GMC trucks - Light blue or dark blue
Ford Trucks - Black/pink
Dodge Ram Trucks - Orange/black or black/orange
IMPORTANT! 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.)

H2/2 LIGHT GREEN/BLACK (-) Factory Disarm Output
This wire sends a negative pulse every time the remote engine starting system is activated. This can
be used to pulse the disarm wire of the vehicle's factory anti-theft device. Use a relay to send a (-)
or (+) pulse to the disarm wire as shown in the diagrams below. This wire can also be used as a
special accessory output. (See Feature Descriptions section of this guide.)

H2/3 VIOLET/BLACK (-) 200 mA Channel
This wire provides a (-) 200mA output whenever the transmitter button(s) controlling Channel 4
is pressed. This output can be programmed to provide the following types of outputs (see also the
Feature Menus section):
➤
➤
➤
➤
➤
Validity: Output that will send a signal as long as the transmission is received.
Latched: Output that will send a signal when the Channel 4 button(s) is pressed and will
continue until the same button(s) is pressed again.
Latched/reset with ignition: This works similar to the latched output, but will also reset (output
will stop) when the ignition is turned on and then off. This output can also be shut off at any
time by pressing the transmitter button that controls Channel 4 again.
30-second timed: Output that will send a continuous signal for 30 seconds.
Second unlock output: This output can also be programmed to provide a second unlock pulse
whenever the disarm button is pressed within 15 seconds after disarming the system. This
setting could be used to unlock the passenger doors when installing progressive door locks, for
instance.
NOTE: Programming Channel 4 for second unlock will link the violet/black wire to the unlock
button. Pressing the unlock button once will send the output to the H4/A or H4/C unlock wire.
Pressing the unlock button a second time within 15 seconds will send a negative (-) unlock pulse to
the violet/black wire.
IMPORTANT! Never use this wire to drive anything but a relay or a low-current input!
This transistorized output can only supply 200 mA, and connecting directly to a
solenoid, motor, or other high-current device will cause the module to fail.

Relay Satellite Key Switch Interface Wire
Connection Guide (Heavy Gauge Wires)
The five heavy gauge wires coming from the relay satellite are used to energize high current 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.

RED (2) (+) 12V Input for Relays
Remove the two 30-amp fuses prior to connecting these wires and do not replace them until the
satellite has been plugged into the control module. These wires are the source of current for all the
circuits the relay satellite will energize. They must be connected to a high current source. Since the
factory supplies (+)12V to the key switch that is used to operate the motor, it is recommended that
these wires be connected there.
NOTE: If the factory supplies two separate (+) 12V feeds to the ignition switch, connect one RED
wire of the satellite to each feed at the switch.

H3/2 BLUE/BLACK (-) Optional Third Ignition Output
This output provides a 200mA output as soon as the remote engine starting system is activated. It
can be used to power a relay to energize a positive (+) third ignition as shown below. This output is
capable of driving two relays if necessary.
H3/3 GRAY (-) Hood Pinswitch Input, Zone 1
This wire MUST be connected to hood pinswitch. This input will disable or shut down the remote
engine starting system 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 1.
H3/4 BROWN (+) Brake Switch Input, Zone 1
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 engine starting system will be disabled or shut down
any time the brake pedal is depressed. This wire will also trigger the security system if the brake
pedal is pressed while the system is armed and will report Zone 1.
H3/5 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. Once

connected, you must teach the system the tach signal. (See the Programming Jumpers section of this
guide.)
H3/6 BLACK/WHITE neutral safety switch input
Connect this wire to the provided toggle (override) switch as shown in figure A. Connect the other
wire from the toggle switch to the park/neutral switch in the vehicle. This wire will test with ground
with the gear selector either in PARK or NEUTRAL. This will prevent the vehicle from accidentally being started while in a drive gear. This input MUST rest at ground in order for the remote
engine starting system to operate. Connected properly the vehicle will only start while in PARK or
NEUTRAL.
In some vehicles, the park/neutral position switch activates a factory starter lock out that will not
allow the starter to operate in a drive gear. In these vehicles, connect this wire to the toggle switch
as shown in figure B. Connect the other wire from the toggle switch to chassis ground.
IMPORTANT! Always perform the Safety Check section of this guide to verify that the
vehicle cannot be started in ANY drive gear and that the override switch is functioning
properly.

Neutral Safety Switch Interface
Some vehicles combine the column shift mechanism and the mechanical neutral safety switch into
one mechanical part. In these vehicles, it is impossible to interface the remote engine starting system
before the neutral safety switch. With this type of vehicle, if the vehicle is left in a drive gear and
the remote engine starting system is activated, the vehicle will move and may cause damage to
persons or property.
According to available information, vehicles known to be manufactured this way are most General
Motors trucks, sport utility vehicles and column shifting passenger vehicles. Available information also
indicates that pre-1996 Dodge Dakota pickups with 2.5 liter motors are also manufactured this way.
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.
IMPORTANT! You must complete the remote engine starting system installation before
doing the following test. Ensure that the remote engine starting system is functioning
normally. This includes connecting to the brake as a shut-down.
Testing the Neutral Safety Switch
1. Make sure there is adequate clearance to the front and rear of the vehicle because it may move
slightly.
2. Make sure the hood is closed and there are no remote engine starting shut-downs active.
3. Set the emergency brake.
4. Turn the key to the "run" position, this will release the shifter.
5. Place the car in drive (D).
6. 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 engine starting system.
8. If the starter engages, immediately depress the brake to shut the remote engine starting system
down. If the starter does not engage, no additional safety system is required.
www.clifford.com
19
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 shut-down 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 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 this way 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
engine starting if the keys are in the ignition. The diagrams in this section illustrate how to accomplish this.
Diagram A, applies to all General Motors vehicles at the time of publication of this guide. Diagram
B 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
engine starting 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
engine starting system is active. This will allow the customer to turn the key on and shut the
remote engine starting system down by pressing the brake without the key sense wire shutting
down the unit prematurely.
In addition, you must connect a tan (+) shut-down input to the yellow wire on the relay satellite
ribbon cable. This prevents the remote engine starting system from activating if the key is left in the
"run" position. If your remote engine starting system only has one tan input, you must use diodes
to isolate the ignition circuit from the brake switch input. 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
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.

PK-3 and the transponder-based systems use a transponder system that locks out the ignition and
fuel system. This transponder system is comprised of two parts. The first part, the transceiver, circles
the key switch and is activated when the key is placed in the key switch or turned to the run
position. Upon activation, the transceiver will excite the transponder, which is located (but not
visible) in the head of the ignition key. The key transponder will then send a unique code back to
the transceiver for evaluation. If the code matches a valid code of the system, the vehicle will be
allowed to start.
Most of these transponder-based systems can be bypassed using p/n 555U. Some may require
additional parts from the vehicle manufacturer. Consult you dealer for the applications. For most
Ford PATS transponders, as well as Lexus and Toyotas, p/n 555F can be used, except for the
following vehicles, which will require p/n 555U: ‘97 and newer Mark VII, and 2000 and newer
Taurus/Sable, Contour/Mystique and Focus.

Bypassing GM Vehicle Anti-Theft
Systems (VATS)
Vehicles with the GM VATS (Pass Key) systems have a resistor embedded in the ignition key. If
the VATS decoder module does not measure the proper resistance value when the vehicle is started,
the starter and fuel pump may be disabled for up to ten minutes. An optional "VATS pack" of
resistors is available (Directed P/N 652T). One of the resistors in the pack will match the resistor
in the key.
The VATS wires will be two very light-gauge wires coming out of the steering column. The colors
of the wires vary, but they are often contained in orange tubing - either both will be white wires, or
one wire will be purple/white and the other white/black. Determine the value of the resistor in the
key. Then follow the wiring outlined in the following diagram to bypass VATS during remote start
operation. If the BLUE status output has been programmed for factory security re-arm, use the
H2/2 BLUE/BLACK third ignition output to control the relay.
NOTE: When connecting to the VATS wires, it is not important which wire is cut.

Plug-In Harnesses
Super Bright LED, 2-Pin White Plug
The super bright LED operates at 2V DC. Make sure the LED wires are not shorted to ground as
the LED will be damaged. Multiple LEDs can be used, but they must be wired in series. The LED
can be top-mounted or flush-mounted. If top-loading the LED with a bezel, the LED fits into a
5
/16-inch mounting hole. If flush-mounting the LED from the back of a panel, drill a mounting hole
using a 17/64-inch drill bit. Be sure to check for clearance prior to drilling the mounting hole.
Valet/Program Switch, 2-Pin Blue Plug
The Valet/Program switch should be accessible from the driver’s seat. It plugs into the blue port on
the side of the unit. Since the system features Valet by using the remote transmitter, the switch can
be well hidden. Consider how the switch will be used before choosing a mounting location. Check
for rear clearance before drilling a 9/32-inch hole and mounting the switch.The GRAY wire in the
two-pin plug may also be used as a (+) Ghost Switch input and can be connected to any (+) switch
in the vehicle. (See Feature Descriptions section of this guide.)

Shock Sensor Harness, 4-Pin Connector
RED, BLACK
These wires supply constant 12 volts and ground to the shock sensor. Do not use these wires for
anything except the plug-in shock sensor.
ORANGE (-) Multiplex Input, Zone 2
Inputs shorter than 0.8 seconds will trigger the Warning Zone response, while inputs longer than
0.8 seconds will trigger full alarm sequence and report zone four. If installing an additional Directed
dual stage sensor, connect to the green wire as shown below. The diagram below indicates how to
add an optional Directed dual stage sensor to the orange wire (zone 2) and eliminates the need for
diodes to isolate the sensors. A Directed dual stage sensor may also be added to the blue wire on
the Primary Harness (H1) if you want the sensors to report separate zones.
BLUE (-) Multiplex Input, Zone 2
Inputs shorter than 0.8 seconds will trigger the Warning Zone response, while inputs longer than
0.8 seconds will trigger full alarm sequence and report zone 2.
Programmer Interface, 3-Pin Port
The black 3-pin port is provided for personal computer programming of the unit. The unit can also
be programmed using the Bitwriter (p/n 998T). When using the optional PC Interface module, or
hand-held programmer, it is possible to configure any and all of the programmable functions as well
as lock the Transmitter/Receiver and System Features Learn Routines, so that unauthorized users
cannot change the configuration or program transmitters to the unit.

Programming Jumpers
Digital Tach Filter 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. The vehicles affected include many newer Dodge/
Chrysler/Plymouth vehicles, such as the Neon, Cirrus, Stratus, Breeze and LH-based vehicles.

Light Flash Jumper
This jumper is used to determine the light flash output. In the (+) position, the on-board relay is
enabled and the unit will output (+)12V on the WHITE wire, H1/2. In the (-) position, the onboard relay is disabled. The WHITE wire, H1/2, will supply a 200 mA (-) output suitable for
driving factory parking light relays.
NOTE: For parking light circuits that draw 10 amps or more, the jumper must be switched to a (-)
light flash output. P/N 8617 or a standard automotive SPDT relay must be used on the H1/2 light
flash output harness wire.
Transmitter/Receiver Learn Routine
The system comes with two transmitters that have been taught to the receiver. The receiver can store
up to four different transmitter codes in memory. Use the following learn routine to add transmitters to the system or to change button assignments if desired.
If the Directed Bitwriter or PC Interface has previously been used to program the system,
the unit may have been locked, so that the features and channels cannot be altered via
manual programming with the Valet switch. If the siren generates one long chirp when attempting
to program the transmitter/receiver, this indicates that the unit is locked. You must unlock it with
the Bitwriter of PC Interface before you will be able to manually program the transmitter/receiver.
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, H1/5, or the VIOLET, H1/7 must be
connected.)
2. Key. Turn the ignition on. (The heavy gauge PINK wire of the relay satellite
must be connected.)
3. Select the receiver channel. Press and release the Valet/Program switch the
number of times necessary to access the desired channel. Once you have
selected a channel, press and hold the Valet/Program switch once more. The
siren will chirp and the LED will blink the number of times corresponding to
the channel that has been accessed.

4. Transmit. While HOLDING the Valet/Program switch, press the button from
the transmitter that you wish to assign to that channel. The unit will chirp
indicating that the channel has been entered.
5. Confirm. While still HOLDING the Valet/Program switch, press the same
transmitter button that you just programmed. The unit will chirp twice to
confirm that the desired channel has been successfully programmed to the button.
If this step is not performed, the channel will not be programmed to the button.
It is not possible to teach a transmitter button to the system more than once.
6. Release. Once the code is learned, the Valet/Program switch can be released.
Channels 5, 6 and 7 (available only when using a Radar Master remote)
Channels 5 through 7 are used to assign the arm, disarm and panic functions to separate buttons
on the remote control. These channels are only available when using an optional Radar Master
remote. (See Transmitter Configurations section of this guide.) Teaching a transmitter button to
Channel 5 erases all previous programming from the transmitter’s memory. Similarly, if the transmitter is set up to use the separate arm, disarm and panic channels and a button from that
transmitter is programmed to Channel 1, the transmitter’s memory will be erased, and the system
will only recognize the button that was programmed to Channel 1.
Channel 9
If any transmitter button from a known transmitter is programmed to Channel 9, all transmitters
will be erased from memory and will revert to the default feature settings (see the Features Menu
28
©
2001 Directed Electronics, Inc.
section of this guide). This is useful in cases where the one of the customer's transmitters is lost or
stolen. This will erase any lost or stolen transmitters from the system's memory. It can also be used
to start from scratch if the transmitter buttons were programmed incorrectly.
To advance from one channel to another:
You can advance from one channel to another by releasing the Valet /Program switch and tapping
it to advance channels and then holding it. For example, if you want to program Channel 3 after
programming Channel 1, release the Valet/Program switch. Press it twice and release it to advance
to Channel 3. Then press it once more and HOLD it. The siren will chirp three times to confirm
it is ready to receive the code from the transmitter.
To exit the learn routine:
One long chirp indicates that Learn Routine has been exited. Learn Routine will be exited if any of
the following occurs:
➤
➤
➤
➤
Ignition is turned off.
Door is closed.
Valet/Program switch is pressed too many times.
More than 15 seconds elapse between steps.
Transmitter Configurations
The transmitters can be programmed with the 4-button configuration by using the Auto-learn
function described in the Transmitter/Receiver Learn Routine section.
4-Button Transmitter Configuration
This configuration can be programmed to a 4-button transmitter using Channel 8 of the
Transmitter/Receiver Learn Routine. The transmitter buttons are assigned to the following
functions:
..........................operates ......................Arm/Disarm/Panic
.............................operates ......................Channel 2 (Optional auxiliary
function, such as trunk release)
.............................operates ......................Remote Start
..........................operates ...................... Channel 4

29
Optional Radar Master Transmitter
Separate transmitter button arming/disarming/panic (Channels 5, 6 and 7, see channel chart in
Transmitter/Receiver Learn Routine section) can only be utilized when upgrading to an optional
Radar Master transmitter. When using a Radar Master transmitter with this system, Channels 5, 6,
and 7 may be programmed to the transmitter in a variety of configurations.
Multi-Level Security Arming
Multi-Level Security Arming is only available when using an optional Radar Master transmitter that has
been configured with separate transmitter buttons for arming and disarming. Multi-Level Security
Arming allows you to select which of the system's inputs or sensors will be active or bypassed at the time
that the system is armed. (See Table of Zones section.) Pressing the arm button again within five
seconds of arming the system will activate Multi-Level Security Arming. Each time the arm button is
pressed again, a different security level is selected. The different security levels can be selected as follows:
➤
➤
➤
➤
➤
Pressing the arm button once: The siren chirps once. The system is armed.
Pressing the arm button twice within five seconds: The siren chirps twice followed by a long
chirp. Zone Two is now bypassed.
Pressing the arm button a third time within five seconds: The siren chirps three times followed
by a long chirp. Zone Four is now bypassed.
Pressing the arm button a fourth time within five seconds: The siren chirps four times followed
by a long chirp. Zones Two and Four are now bypassed.
Pressing the arm button a fifth time within five seconds: The siren chirps five times followed by
a long chirp. All input zones, except the ignition, are now bypassed.
NOTE: Multi-Level Security Arming only applies to a single arming cycle. Once the system is
disarmed and then re-armed, all the zones will be active again.
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
greatly simplified by using the optional Personal Computer Interface (P/N 996T) or Bitwriter (P/N
998T). Any of the settings can be changed and then assigned to one of up to four transmitters. This
30

2001 Directed Electronics, Inc.
feature is called Owner Recognition. Each time that particular transmitter is used to disarm the
system, the assigned feature settings will be recalled. Owner Recognition is only possible when
programming the unit via the computer interface or hand-held programmer.
If using the Directed Bitwriter or PC Interface to program System Features Code Learning,
you may lock the unit so that the features cannot be altered via manual programming with
the Valet switch. If you later wish to program the system manually, you must unlock the unit using
the Directed Bitwriter or PC Interface before you will be able to reprogram the features. If the siren
generates one long chirp when attempting to program the unit, this indicates that the unit has been
locked and must be unlocked with the Bitwriter or PC Interface before proceeding.
To enter the System Features Learn Routine:
1. Open a door. (The GREEN wire, H1/5, or the VIOLET, H1/7 must be
connected.)
2. Ignition. Turn the ignition on, then back off. (The heavy gauge PINK wire of
the relay satellite 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
wish to access, release the switch and go on to Step 4. If the switch is not
released, you will jump to the next menu and the siren will chirp twice. There
are three possible menus. Once you have selected the desired menu, release the
Valet/Program switch.
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 switch 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 transmitter. Pressing
will
select the one chirp setting. Pressing
will select the two chirp setting.
(See the Feature Menus section of this guide.)
www.clifford.com
31
Note: Some features have more than two possible settings. Pressing
will select the one chirp
setting, pressing
will toggle through the two-chirp and higher settings.)
6. Release. The Valet/Program switch can now be released.
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.
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 would like to program
the seventh feature in the menu, you would press and release the Valet/Program switch four times
and then press it once more and HOLD it. The siren would chirp seven times to confirm access to
the seventh feature.
To select another menu:
1. Press and HOLD the Valet/Program switch.
2. 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 switch 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.
To exit the learn routine:
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 PC interface or Bitwriter are indicated by the following
icon:
Feature Menu 1 - Basic Features
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 CHIRPS ON/OFF: This feature controls the chirps that confirm the arming and disarming of
the system.
1-3 IGNITION CONTROLLED DOOR LOCKS ON/OFF: When turned on, the doors
will lock three seconds after the ignition is turned on and unlock when the ignition is
turned off. The TechSoft Programmer or the 998T Bitwriter will display separate steps for ignition
lock and ignition unlock. They can be programmed on or off independently.
1-4 ACTIVE/PASSIVE LOCKING: If passive arming is selected in Feature 1-1, then the system can
be programmed to either lock the doors when passive arming occurs, or only lock the doors when
34
©
2001 Directed Electronics, Inc.
the system is armed via the transmitter. Active locking means the system will not lock the doors
when it passively arms. Passive locking means that the system will lock the doors when it passively arms.
NOTE: Remember, when passive arming is selected, the unit will chirp 20 seconds after the last
door is closed. The system does not actually arm or lock the doors until 30 seconds after the door
has been closed.
1-5 PANIC WITH IGNITION ON: 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.
1-6 DOOR LOCK PULSE DURATlON: 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 pulses, will accommodate the door lock interface in these vehicles. The default
setting is 0.8 second door lock pulses. Some modification to the door lock harness (H4) is also
necessary. (Refer to Type E Door Locks - Mercedes-Benz and Audi -1985 and Newer, in the Door Lock
Wiring Guide provided on www. directechs.com or through DirectFax 1-800-999-1FAX.)
1-7 FORCED PASSIVE ARMING ON/OFF: To use this feature, passive arming must be selected in
Feature 1-1. When turned on, forced passive arming will ensure that the system will passively arm, even
if a zone is left open or invalid. Forced passive arming occurs one hour after the ignition is turned off.
1-8 AUTOMATIC ENGINE DISABLE (AED) ON/OFF: AED is a full-time, passive starter disable
that works independently of the security system. When turned on, the orange, ground-when-armed
output (H1/1) will activate 30 seconds after the ignition is turned off. The LED will flash at half its
normal rate when the ignition is turned off to indicate that AED is active and will interrupt the
starter in 30 seconds. AED does not occur in Valet mode and can be bypassed using the emergency
override procedure. The transmitter can be used to disarm AED, however, the system must be
armed and then disarmed, using the transmitter, to disarm AED.
1-9 ARMED WHILE DRIVING (AWD) ON/OFF: In the default setting (Armed While Driving),
the system can be armed with the ignition on. When armed, the ground-when-armed is not active
and the sensors are bypassed. The door triggers will remain active.
1-10 ANTI-CODE GRABBING ON/OFF: The system uses a mathematical formula to change its
code each time the transmitter and receiver communicate. This makes the group of bits or “word”
from the transmitter very long. The longer the word is, the easier it is to block its transmission to
the unit. Disabling this feature lets the receiver ignore the Anti-Code Grabbing part of the transmitted word. As a result, the unit may have better range with the Anti-Code Grabbing feature off.
www.clifford.com
35
Feature Menu 2 - Advanced Features
2-1 SIREN OUTPUT CONSTANT/PULSED: The system can be programmed to output pulses
instead of a continuous output when the system is triggered. This is useful to honk the factory horn
in applications where a siren is undesirable. Remember that the unit is only capable of supplying 1
amp of current. A relay will be required to interface with most factory horn systems.
2-2 SIREN DURATION 30/60 SECONDS: 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 TechSoft Programmer or Bitwriter, the siren can be
programmed to sound for any length of time from 1 second to 180 seconds. Use the right and left
arrows or the plus (+) and minus (-) keys on your keyboard to change the siren duration in 1 second
intervals. Holding down the key will rapidly increase or decrease the setting. The desired siren
duration can also be directly entered by using the number keys on your computer's keyboard.
2-3 FALSE ALARM CONTROL TECHNOLOGY (FACT) ON/OFF: FACT 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. FACT monitors sensor inputs
and door triggers, but does not bypass the ignition trigger at any time. If FACT 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.
2-4 PROGRESSIVE DOOR TRIGGER ON/OFF: The system responds to a door trigger input with
a progressive response. When the door is opened with the system armed, the siren will chirp 10
times prior to the full triggered sequence. The door trigger is still treated as an instant trigger and
closing the door quickly will not prevent full triggered sequence from occurring. If the progressive
door trigger is programmed off, the full siren output will occur the moment the door is opened.
2-5 VALET PULSE COUNT 1 TO 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.
Ghost Switch option: For added security, the GRAY wire on the two-pin Valet/Program plug can
be connected to any switch in the vehicle that provides a positive (+) momentary pulse.
2-6 DOOR SENSOR BYPASS CHIRP ON/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
36
©
2001 Directed Electronics, Inc.
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 bypass chirp is turned off, no
bypass chirp will be generated, even if a door is accidentally left open.
2-7 IGNITION CONTROLLED DOME LIGHT SUPERVISION ON/OFF: 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.
2-8 DOUBLE PULSE UNLOCK ON/OFF: Some vehicles require two pulses on a single wire to
unlock the doors. When the double pulse unlock feature is turned on, the BLUE H4/C wire will
supply two negative pulses instead of a single pulse. At the same time, the GREEN H4/A wire will
supply two positive pulses instead of a single pulse. This makes it possible to directly interface with
double pulse vehicles without any extra parts.
2-9 FACTORY ALARM DISARM WITH CHANNEL 2: In the default setting the factory alarm disarm
output will disarm the factory alarm system any time
is pressed.
2-10 CHANNEL 4 VALIDITY/LATCHED/LATCHED RESET WITH IGNITION/30 SECOND
TIMED/SECOND UNLOCK OUTPUT: Channel Four 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.
Feature Menu 3 - Remote Start Features
3-1 ENGINE CHECKING ON/OFF: In the default setting the remote engine starting system will
monitor either the vehicle's tach wire or voltage depending on the programming of feature 3-2. If
programmed OFF the vehicle will crank for the programmed crank time (feature 3-5) and will not
verify with tach or voltage that the car is running. In the OFF setting, if the vehicle fails to start,
the ignition can stay on for the entire run duration. Using tach or voltage check is always recommended if possible.
3-2 CHECKING TYPE TACH/VOLTAGE: Selects the method of engine monitoring. If set to
TACHOMETER the unit will reference 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. When set to
VOLTAGE, the unit will crank the starter for the programmed time and then attempt to sense that
the engine is running by detecting an increase in voltage. The threshold for the voltage check is
selectable in feature 3-6.
www.clifford.com
37
3-3 RUN TIME 12, 24, 60 MINUTES: Selects the time in minutes that the system will
operate the engine until the system "times out". 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 1-60 minutes.
3-4 PARKING LIGHTS FLASHING/CONSTANT: In the default setting, the unit will flash the
vehicle's parking lights (if connected) while remote started. The constant setting will turn the
parking lights on solid for the entire run duration.
3-5 CRANK TIME 0.6/0.8/1.0/1.2/1.4/1.6/1.8/2.0/4.0 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. If a different crank time is desired, select feature 3-5 and select either
0.6 second by using the one-chirp setting or toggle through the higher settings by using the twochirp settings.
3-6 VOLTAGE CHECK HI/LOW: This feature only functions when programmed for voltage sense.
Some vehicles have many accessories, which are turned on when remote started. In these vehicles,
the variation of voltage between the engine off and the car running is very small and the remote
engine starting unit may "think" the vehicle has not started. This can cause the remote engine
starting system to shut-down after the car has been started. If this happens program this feature to
the LOW position.
3-7 AUXILIARY OUTPUT FACTORY DISARM/SPECIAL ACCESSORY: In the default setting this
wire sends a negative pulse that may be used to disarm the vehicle’s factory security system. If
programmed for a special accessory, the wire can be used to energize a relay to power up extra
ignition wires in the vehicle. This wire must be used to energize circuits in the vehicle that operate
accessories, such as the radio or heater.
3-8 BLUE WIRE STATUS OUTPUT/FACTORY SECURITY RE-ARM OUTPUT: The blue
(H3/1) wire will supply a 200mA (-) output for the entire remote start run time. If programmed
for factory re-arm output, this wire will supply a momentary 200mA (-) pulse whenever the remote
engine starting system times out or is shut down with the transmitter. This can be used to re-arm
many factory security systems.
3-9 AUTOMATIC ANTI-GRIND ON/OFF: With the anti-grind ON (default) the ground-whenarmed output will be active during remote start operation. If accessories such as a voice module or
window module are added to the unit, it may be necessary to program this feature OFF.

False Alarm Control Technology (FACT)
FACT requires that you change the way you test the system as FACT 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 will begin
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 FACT. The only way to reset FACT 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 FACT to bypass a faulty zone.
When disarming the system, 5 chirps indicate FACT is activated. The LED will report the zone that
has been bypassed. (See the Table of Zones section of this guide.)
Valet Mode
To enter or exit Valet Mode with the Valet/Program switch:
1. Turn the ignition on and then off.
2. Within 10 seconds, press and release the Valet/Program switch. The LED
status indicator will light solid if you have entered Valet Mode, and will go out
if you have exited Valet Mode.
To enter or exit Valet Mode with the transmitter:
1. Open any door.
2. Press
on the transmitter.
3. Press
.
4. Press
again. You have now entered or exited Valet Mode (verify by checking the LED
status indicator).

Timer Mode
This unit can be programmed to start and run the engine every three hours. The engine will run for
the programmed run time and then shut down. After three hours, the unit will restart the engine.
A maximum of six cycles can occur.
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.
The same procedure may be used to enter or exit Timer Mode using the remote transmitter:
1. Remote start the vehicle by pressing
.
2. Press and release
.
3. Within 2 seconds, press and release
again.
When entering Timer Mode, the engine should shut down. The parking lights (if connected) will
flash four times and the engine will restart. The system is in Timer Mode. The engine may be
allowed to run for its programmed run time, or the transmitter can be used to shut down the engine.
Either way, the remote engine starting system will restart the engine again in three hours. Timer
Mode is exited automatically after the sixth run cycle.
Timer Mode can also be exited manually as follows:
1. Make sure the remote engine starting system is not operating the engine.
2. Turn the ignition on. Timer Mode will be exited and the parking lights will flash four times.
Table of Zones
When using the diagnostic functions, use the Table of Zones to determine which input has triggered

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 status
indicator will flash in groups indicating the last two zones that triggered the
unit for one minute or until the ignition is turned off.
NOTE: The Warning Zone triggers are not stored to memory and will not be reported.
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 engine
starting 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 engine starting system. The vehicle should not start. If the starter engages, check your
hood pin and connections.
NOTE: If programmed for Diesel Mode, the system will turn on the ignition, but the starter should
not engage with the hood open.
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.

Make sure the hood is closed and no other shutdown circuits are active.
Set the emergency brake.
Turn the ignition key to the run position but do not start the engine.
Put the vehicle in Drive (D).
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 engine starting system.
f. Activate the remote engine starting system.
➤ 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 H2/6 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 engine starting system or finalize the installation if it fails any of the safety check tests.
Troubleshooting
Alarm Troubleshooting
Starter interrupt doesn't work.
➤ Is the correct wire being interrupted? If the car starts when the starter interrupt relay is
completely disconnected, the wrong starter wire has been cut and interrupted.
➤ Is the yellow wire of the starter interrupt relay going to primary ignition? This wire must be
powered in the run and start positions.
Shock sensor doesn't trigger the alarm.
➤ Has the FACT 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 FACT's memory, and then retest the shock sensor. For
a detailed description of FACT, see False Alarm Control Technology (FACT) 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, since even if the door is instantly closed again, the progression
from chirps to constant siren will continue.
www.clifford.com
43
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 LED status indicator 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.
The Valet/Program switch doesn't work.
➤
Is it plugged into the correct socket? See Plug-In Harnesses section of this guide.
LED status indicator doesn't work.
➤
You've probably guessed already, but here goes: Is it plugged in? (See Plug-In Harnesses 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 Troubleshooting
The remote engine starter will not activate.
1. Check the harnesses and their connections. Make sure that the harnesses are completely plugged
into the remote engine starting module. Make sure there are good connections to the vehicle wiring.
2. Check voltage and fuses. Use a meter to check for voltage between the red wire in the 5-pin
ribbon harness and the black ground wire. If you have less than battery voltage, check the 3A
and both 30A fuses on the relay satellite. Also make sure that the ground wire connects to a good
chassis ground point.
3. Check diagnostics. The diagnostics will tell you which shutdown is active or not connected.

The remote engine starting will activate, but the starter never engages.
1. Check for voltage on the purple starter wire two seconds after the remote engine starting system
becomes active. If there is voltage present, skip to Step 4. If there is not voltage present, advance
to Step 2.
2. Check the 30A fuses.
3. Check diagnostics. If the gray/black wire is detecting ground upon activation, the starter will
not crank.
4. Make sure the purple starter wire is connected on the starter side of the starter interrupt/antigrind relay.
5. Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? Some immobilizer systems will not allow the vehicle to
crank if active.
6. Check connections. The two red heavy gauge input wires on the relay satellite should have solid
connections. "T-taps" or "scotch locks" are not recommended for any high current heavy gauge
wiring. Also, if the vehicle has more than one 12-volt input wire, then connect one red wire to
each.
The vehicle starts, but immediately dies.
1. Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? The vehicle’s immobilizer will cut the fuel and/or spark
during unauthorized starting attempts.
2. Is the remote start programmed for voltage sense? If so, the start time may not be set high
enough, or you may have to adjust the voltage threshold in programming. Voltage sense will not
work on some vehicles.
3. 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 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.
2. Was the Tach Learn successful? The LED must light solid and bright to indicate a successful
learn.
3. Make sure that there is a tach signal at the purple/white tach input wire of the remote engine
starting system. 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 engine starting
system.
www.clifford.com
45
The vehicle will start, but will only run for 10 seconds.
1. Is the remote start programmed for voltage sense? Try programming the unit for low voltage
reference. If this does not work, a tach wire should be used.
2. 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.
