Installation Points to Remember
Before Beginning the Installation
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.
➤
➤
➤
➤
➤
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.
Check with the customer on status LED 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.
Common locations for a tachometer wire are the ignition coil, instrument cluster, fuel injectors, or
engine computers.
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.
©
2003 Directed Electronics, Inc.
5
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. Increase the R.P.M., and the
voltage should increase approximately 1V.
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. However, there are some instances of diesel vehicles without WAIT TO START
wires. In this case, please contact Technical Support.
To test and determine the polarity of this 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 very helpful when
testing.
Review and complete the Safety Check section of this guide prior to the vehicle reassembly.
Vehicle Anti-Theft Systems (Immobilizers)
Vehicle anti-theft systems (immobilizers) require a bypass module. The bypass module allows for
easy interfacing, while still maintaining the OEM security system’s integrity. For vehicle listings and
required bypass, see DirectFax Document 1059, available only to authorized dealers through the
technical resources listed at the front of this guide.

H1/2 WHITE (+/-) Selectable Light Flash Output
As shipped, this wire should be connected to the (+) parking light wire. If the light flash polarity
jumper is moved to the (-) position (see the Programming Jumper section of this guide), this wire
supplies a (-) 200 mA output. This is available for driving (-) light control wires in Toyota, Lexus,
BMW, some Mitsubishi, some Mazda, and other models.
NOTE: For parking light systems 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 wire.
IMPORTANT! DO NOT connect this wire to a negative vehicle light flash wire before
changing the programming jumper to the negative polarity position or damage to
vehicle light circuit may occur.

H1/3 WHITE/BLUE Activation Input
A momentary input on this wire will start or stop the motor, just as transmitting Channel 3 from
the transmitter/receiver does. It is often connected to an optional momentary push-button switch
to make activating Valet Take Over 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! This output is only intended to drive a relay. It cannot be connected
directly to the domelight circuit, as the output cannot support the current draw of one
or more bulbs.
H1/5 GREEN (-) Door Trigger Input, Zone 3 and Door Icon
Most vehicles use negative door trigger circuits. Connect the GREEN wire to a wire showing
ground when any door is opened. When connecting to newer model vehicles there is generally a
need to use individual door triggers. See DirectFax document 1076 for wiring instructions. This
wire will report Zone 3.
NOTE: If using a door trigger wire that has a delay, Advanced Menu 2, feature 6, or the 998T
Bitwriter can be used to turn Bypass Notification off.

H1/6 BLUE (-) Multiplexed Trigger Input, Zone 1 and Trunk Icon
This input will respond to a negative input with a WarnAway® or instant trigger. It is ideal for hood
and trunk pins and will report on Zone 1. It can also be used with Directed dual-stage sensors. The
H1/6 BLUE WarnAway® or instant trigger wire can also be used to shunt sensors during operation of
auxiliary channels or remote start. (See Bypassing Sensor Inputs section of this guide.)
H1/7 VIOLET (+) Door Trigger Input, Zone 3 and Door Icon
This type of dome circuit is used in many Ford products. Connect the VIOLET wire to a wire that
shows (+)12V when any door is opened. This wire will report Zone 3.
NOTE: If using a door trigger wire that has a delay, Advanced Menu 2, feature 6, or the 998T
Bitwriter can be used to turn Bypass Notification off.
H1/8 BLACK (-) Chassis Ground Connection
Connect this wire to a clean, paint-free sheet metal location (driver kick panel) using a factory bolt
that DOES NOT have any vehicle component grounds attached to it. A screw should only be used
when in conjunction with a two-sided lock washer. Under dash brackets and door sheet metal are
not acceptable ground points. It is recommended that all security components be grounded at the
same location.

2002 Directed Electronics, Inc.
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.
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.
H1/12 RED/WHITE (-) 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 called
validity output and is often 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 200 mA of current. Connecting directly to a
solenoid, motor, or other high-current device will cause it to fail.

H3/3 GRAY (-) Hood Pinswitch Input, Zone 6 and Hood Icon
This wire MUST be connected to hood pinswitch. 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.
H3/4 BROWN (+) Brake Switch 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 pressed. The remote start will be disabled or shut down any time the brake
pedal is pressed.
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. (See
Installation Points to Remember section of this guide for finding the tachometer wire.) Once
connected, you must teach the system the tach signal. (See Tach Learning section of this guide.)
IMPORTANT! DO NOT use T-Taps or scotch locks for this connection.
H3/6 BLACK/WHITE Neutral Safety Switch Input
Connect this wire to the 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 start 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 Vehicle 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 start system before
the neutral safety switch. With this type of vehicle, if the vehicle 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. The
following test must be performed before the vehicle is released to the customer.
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.
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 start 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 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 while testing, refer to DirectFax Document 1008 (Neutral Safety Update). It is
available to authorized dealers only from the technical resources listed at the beginning of this manual.
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.

Valet/Program Switch, 2-Pin BLUE Plug
The Valet/Program button 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 transmitter/receiver, the button
can be well hidden. Consider how the button will be used before choosing a mounting location.
Check for rear clearance before drilling a 9/32-inch hole and mounting the button.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.)
Programmer Interface, 3-Pin Port
The BLACK three-pin port is provided for programming of the unit. When using the 998T
Bitwriter, it is possible to configure any and all of the programmable functions. For more information please refer to the guide packaged with the programmer. This port can also be used to interface
with Directed Video components for on-screen security system programming and trigger information.
Shock Sensor Harness, 4-Pin Connector
BLUE (-) Multiplex Input
Inputs shorter than 0.8 seconds will trigger the Warn Away® response, while inputs longer than 0.8
seconds will trigger full alarm sequence and report Zone Two.
NOTE: The BLUE shock sensor harness wire will report Zone 2 on the status LED and Sensor 1
on the transmitter/receiver LCD. The GREEN shock sensor harness wire will report Zone 4 on the
status LED and Sensor 2 on the transmitter/receiver LCD. Make sure the harness is plugged in
correctly (i.e., the end with the loose GREEN wire plugs into the alarm side).

GREEN (-) Multiplex Input
If installing an optional Directed dual-stage sensor, connect to the GREEN wire off the shock
sensor harness.
RED and BLACK: RED is (+)12V Constant, BLACK is (-) Ground
Do not use these for anything besides the plug-in shock sensor.
Mounting the Transceiver
Two-way in-vehicle transceiver position should be discussed with the vehicle owner prior to installation, since the antenna may be visible to the vehicle’s operator.
The best location for the two-way in-vehicle transceiver is centered high on either the front or rear
windshield. For optimal range, the antenna should be mounted horizontally. Metallic window tint
can also affect range, so this should be a consideration when determining the mounting location.
After determining the best mounting location, follow these steps:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Clean the mounting area with a quality glass cleaner or alcohol to remove any dirt or residue.
Plug the two-way in-vehicle transceiver cable into the two-way in-vehicle transceiver.
Mount the two-way in-vehicle transceiver using the supplied double-sided tape.
Route the two-way in-vehicle transceiver cable to the control module and plug it into the fourpin antenna connector.
IMPORTANT! To achieve the best possible range, DO NOT leave the antenna cable
bundled under the dash. Always extend the cable full length during installation,
regardless of the antenna mounting location.

Programming Jumpers
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.
IMPORTANT! DO NOT connect the H1/2 light flash wire to a negative vehicle light
flash wire before changing the programming jumper to the negative polarity position or
damage to vehicle light circuit may occur.
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. The vehicles affected include many newer
Dodge/Chrysler/Plymouth vehicles, such as the Neon, Cirrus, Stratus, Breeze and LH-based vehicles.

System Features Learn Routine
The System Features Learn Routine dictates how the unit operates. Due to the number of steps,
they have been broken up into three menus. 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
998T Bitwriter. Any of the settings can be changed and then assigned to a particular transmitter, up
to four, a feature 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 998T Bitwriter.
If the system was previously programmed using the 998T Bitwriter, the learn routine may be
locked. If the siren generates one long chirp when attempting to program the unit, the learn routine
is locked and must be unlocked using the 998T Bitwriter.
1. Open a door. (The H1/5 GREEN wire or the H1/7 VIOLET wire 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 button and go on to Step 4.
If the button 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 the switch three 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 transmitter/receiver. Pressing the lock
button will select the one chirp setting. Pressing the unlock button will select
the two chirp setting. (See System Features Menus section of this guide.)
NOTE: Some features have more than two settings. Pressing the lock button
selects the one-chirp setting; pressing the unlock button will cycle through all
possible two-chirp settings.
6. Release the 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.
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 instance, if you just programmed some features in Menu #1 (Basic Features) and you wish to
program a feature in Menu #2, you press and HOLD the Valet/Program button. After three
seconds, the siren chirps twice indicating access to Menu #2.
To exit the learn routine do one of the following:
➤ Close the open door.
➤ Turn the ignition on.

Feature Descriptions
The features of the system are described below. Features that have additional settings that can be
selected only when programming with the 998T Bitwriter are indicated by the following
icon:
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 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
the system is armed via the transmitter/receiver. 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.
26
©
2002 Directed Electronics, Inc.
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 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.
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.
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 CODE HOPPING™ 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 the Code Hopping™ feature lets the receiver ignore the Code Hopping™ part of the
transmitted word. As a result, the unit may have better range with Code Hopping™ off.

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 998T Bitwriter™, the siren can be programmed to
sound for any length of time from 1 second to 180 seconds.
2-3 NUISANCE PREVENTION CIRCUITRY™ (NPC™) ON/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.
2-4 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 BYPASS NOTIFICATION CHIRP ON/OFF: When programmed on, any active zone input to
the system during arming will generate a bypass notification chirp. When programmed OFF, no
bypass notification chirps will be generated if any zone is active during arming.
28

2002 Directed Electronics, Inc.
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 the button(s) controlling Channel Two
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.
Menu #3 - Remote Start Features
3-1 ENGINE CHECKING ON/OFF: In the default setting the remote start 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.
NOTE: This feature is for testing purposes only. Always use Tach or voltage sensing before
completing the installation.
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.
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 998T 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.
©
2003 Directed Electronics, Inc.
29
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
start unit may "think" the vehicle has not started. This can cause the remote start 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 the
LT. GREEN/BLACK, H2/2, 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
start 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.
Transmitter/Receiver Learn Routine
NOTE: For information regarding transmitter programming please refer to the Owner’s Guide.
The system comes with one transmitter that has 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 system was previously programmed using the 998T Bitwriter, the learn routine may be
locked. If the siren generates one long chirp when attempting to program the unit, the learn routine
is locked and must be unlocked using the 998T Bitwriter.

Channel #10: If any button from a known transmitter is programmed to Channel 10, all transmitters will be erased from memory and the system features will revert to the default settings. 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.
You can advance from one channel to another by releasing the Valet® /Program button and tapping
it to advance channels and then holding it. For example, if you want to program Channel Three
after programming Channel One, release the Valet®/Program button. Press it twice and release it
to advance to Channel Three. Then press it once more and hold it. The siren will chirp three times

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.
f. Activate the remote start 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 use
the remote start system or finalize the installation if it fails any of the safety check tests.

Troubleshooting
Alarm Troubleshooting
Starter kill doesn't work:
➤ Is the correct wire being interrupted? If the car starts when the starter kill relay is completely
disconnected, the wrong starter wire has been cut and interrupted.
➤ Is the yellow wire of the starter kill 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 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.
➤ If the Warn Away® does not work, check the four-pin harness and verify that the end with the
GREEN wire is plugged into the alarm module.
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.
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 the Techsoft DirectFax to identify the polarity of the door
trigger.
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.

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.
➤ You've probably guessed already, but here goes: 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 Troubleshooting
The remote start will not activate.
➤ 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. 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.
➤ Check diagnostics. The diagnostics will tell you which shutdown is active or not connected.
➤ Check the neutral safety wire; it should be grounded or the remote start will not activate.
The remote start will activate, but the starter never engages.
➤ 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.
➤ Check diagnostics. If the gray/black 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 starter kill/anti-grind
relay.
➤ Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? Some immobilizer systems will not allow the vehicle to
crank if active.
➤ 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.
➤ 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 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.
➤ Check diagnostics. Sometimes a shutdown will become active during cranking or just after
cranking.
The vehicle starts, but the starter keeps running.
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.
➤ 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.
➤
The vehicle will start, but will only run for 10 seconds.
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.
➤ 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.
