CM6000
If you are new to installing Firstech Series Remote Starts and/or Alarms, we highly recommended that you
thoroughly review this manual to installing your first unit.
Key Points to Consider Before Installation:
You must code remotes to this system before anything will function. Program remotes by cycling the ignition
ON / OFF five times within seven seconds and press and release button 1 (half second) on the first remote,
and then press and release button 1 (half second) on the second remote.
RPS Touch (Touch Remote Paging Sensor):
The optional RPS that has four main functions; (1.) Status LED, (2.) Remote notification when triggered, (3.)
Auto unlock/alarm disarm when a user specific 4 digit knock code is entered via tapping sensor through the
windshield. (4.) You can also relock your vehicle if equipped with an RPS Touch sensor.
DAS Sensor:
The DAS sensor monitors forward movement for remote starting manual transmissions, dual stage impact,
and auto adjusting tilt sensor. See the DAS Sensor section of this manual for details.
Internal green/white loop must be cut for AUTOMATIC transmission vehicles.
By default, the units come in MANUAL transmission mode. You will need to cut the green/white loop inside
the control module if you are installing the unit in a AUTOMATIC transmission.
Tach learning procedure:
Learn tach by: (1.) Starting the vehicle with the key, (2.) Press and hold the foot brake, then (3.) Activate the
remote start sequence - one chirp and parking light flash indicates that the vehicle tach signal has been
successfully learned. Three chirps and three parking light flashes indicate that the control module failed to
see a proper tachometer signal. (These units have the option for Tachless and 1.5 second assume cranking).
New Option Menus:
It is important to familiarize yourself with all the options as it will save time in most applications. For instance, Option 1-04 controls the double pulse unlock feature on all CM6 series control modules.
Programmable Output Channel (POC)
Must have Option Programmer OP500
All control modules come with 9 programmable outputs that can be configured 19 different ways. It is
important to familiarize yourself with the POCs as it will save time in most applications.
Internet updatable processors
Visit www.firstechonline.com
All CM6 series units are equipped with some of the most powerful processors available today. This flexibility
allows for on-demand internet updating capabilities in the event of a version update or change.

CM6000
IMPORTANT: Any and all remotes must be coded to the control module prior to performing any and all
operations.
STEP 1: Activate programming mode by manually turning the vehicle’s key between the Ign On and Off
(or the Acc & On positions) five times within 7 seconds. The vehicle’s parking lights will flash once with the
successful completion of this step. (Note: this step also places the control module into Valet Mode)
STEP 2: Within a 2 second period after the 5th ignition cycle tap Button I on two way remotes or the Lock
button on one-way remotes for a half second. The parking lights will flash once to confirm the transmitter
has been coded. Repeat for additional remotes, up to three.
Exiting Programming: Programming is a timed sequence. After 2 seconds
the parking lights will flash twice signaling the end of programming mode.
Programming Multiple Remotes: After the confirmation flash given in STEP
2, code additional remotes by tapping Button I on two way remotes or
the Lock button on one way remotes. The parking lights will flash once
confirming each additional remote. All systems can recognize up to three
remotes.
Note: If you do not program any remotes and enter this
sequence it will put the system into Valet Mode. Only the
keyless entry will work in Valet Mode. To exit Valet Mode just program
remote(s).
Placement and Use of Components
CM6000
IMPORTANT: The placement and use of components are critical to the performance of this system.
Antenna and Cable
Firstech antennas are calibrated for horizontal installation at the top of the windshield. The cable that connects the antenna to the control module must be free from any pinches or kinks. Installing the antenna in
areas other than the windshield may adversely affect the effective transmitting distance of the remotes.

Adjusting DAS Shock Sensitivity (CM6000 or CM6300)
STEP 1: Turn the ignition to the ‘on’ position.
STEP 2: 2 Way remotes-hold buttons 1 and 2 (Lock and Unlock) for 2.5 seconds. You will get two parking
light flashes. 1 Way remotes-hold Lock and Unlock for 2.5 seconds. You will get two parking light flashes.
STEP 3: To set the Warn Away Zone 1, tap button 1. (1 Way: Lock) After you get one parking light flash,
tap the vehicle. You will get siren chirps 1-most sensitive through 10-least sensitive. This sets the impact
sensitivity of Warn Away Zone 1. Setting Zone 1 will automatically set Zone 2. If you would like
to manually set Zone 2 proceed:
To set Instant Trigger Zone 2, tap button 2. (1 Way: Unlock) After you get two parking light flashes, tap the
vehicle. You will get siren chirps 1-most sensitive through 10-least sensitive. This sets the impact sensitivity of
Instant Trigger Zone 2.
STEP 4: Once you get two parking light flashes, you are ready to test your DAS.
Testing The DAS Sensor
STEP 1: Turn the ignition off and Arm/Lock the system.
STEP 2: Wait 30 seconds then test the impact sensitivity.
Firstech Shock Sensor
For best results mount the shock sensor by zip tying it to the vehicles main ignition harness. You can also use
the supplied mounting hardware to mount your sensor. There is a small dial on the sensor that ranges from
Off to 10. The higher the number on the dial the greater sensitivity of impact. A small adjustment to the dial
can make a significant difference in sensitivity for both 1st and 2nd stages. Recommended dial settings for
most vehicles is somewhere between 2 & 4.

Siren
To adjust duration time when the alarm has been triggered, change Option 3-07 – the system default is 30
seconds.
Thermister (Temperature Sensor)
Every 2 Way LCD Firstech RF kit includes an optional thermister, which must be plugged into the 2 pin
port of the control module for use. This plug is blue on the CM6000. The use of the thermister allows the
2 Way remote to display the vehicle’s interior temperature on the remote LCD (liquid crystal display) as
well as permitting the vehicle to start with timed Hot or Cold starting; see options 2-05, 2-07 and 2-08.
IMPORTANT: Thermister plugs are blue 2 pin connectors on the CM6 series but thermisters with white
plugs will work.
Hood Pin
The hood pin switch triggers the alarm in the event the hood is opened while the alarm is armed. The hood
pin doubles as an important safety feature that prevents the remote start from engaging while the hood is
open.
Backup Battery
The backup battery input on the control module/brain is for optional battery backup unit (FT-BATT BACKUP). The red
positive lead (+) acts both as an input and charging output for a 12 Volt battery backup. A backup battery maintains
basic alarm functionality when main vehicle power is lost. See the wiring schematic section for complete details.
Common Procedures
CM6000
Jumper Settings
Caution: Jumper settings affect the polarity and use of certain outputs. If these jumpers are used incorrectly,
damage to the vehicle and /or control module may occur.
Jumper 1 (Door Trigger Polarity)
Determines the polarity of the door trigger input wire (red/white). In the default position the door trigger
registers negative (-) triggers. To change to a positive (+) trigger, move the jumper.
Jumper 2 (Glow Plug or Key Sense Polarity)
Determines the polarity of the glow plug or key sense input wire (brown/white). In the default position it
monitors a positive (+) glow plug input. To change to a negative (-) input move the jumper. To change from
the glow plug to the key sense setting, you must change Option 4-09.

CM6000 Install Guide
Jumper 3 (Parking Light or Trunk Output)
Determines the output type (not polarity) of the green/white wire on connector one (CN1). In the default
position it provides a positive (+) parking light output. To change to a positive (+) trunk output move the
jumper. A negative (-) parking light output is found on connector three (CN3) and a negative (-) trunk output
is found on connector four (CN4).
Setting Auxiliary Outputs on Connector 2
You Must Have the OP500 Option Programmer
To set auxiliary outputs on the control module involves the new Programmable Output Connector wires
(POCs). You must choose two odd pin wires on the black 18 pin connector that you are not using. For
example we will use POC 8 and 9.
STEP 1: Plug in OP500 and use the Right or Left Arrow Button to scroll through the menu to POC 8 and POC 9 on LCD Line 1.
STEP 2: Use the Up or Down Arrow Button to change the lower number on LCD Line 2 to 10 – Auxiliary 1 or 11- Auxiliary 2.
STEP 3: Scroll up the menu to Option 4-01 and 4-02 and set the options. Please see the Option Table for details.
STEP 4: The control modules have a secure auxiliary option 4-05. This requires you to tap button 4 before you tap button 2 for
Aux 1 or button 3 for Aux 2. On 1-Way remotes you must hold the Trunk and Key/Start buttons for 2.5 seconds then tap the Trunk
button for Aux 1 or the Key/Start button for Aux 2.
STEP 5: If you need to change the time settings of the outputs go to AU1 or AU2 on the OP500. LCD Line 2 is the timed output.
STEP 6: Hold the “W” Write button for 3 seconds to set all the options.
Tach Sensing
The default engine sensing mode is tach. In cold weather climates we recommend using an injector wire
verses a coil wire for tachometer sense. There are new features that adjust tach reading methods on option
2-01. IMPORTANT: The remotes must be coded prior to setting up tach sensing. Firstech recommends
using a digital multimeter to test for tach.
STEP 1: Start the vehicle with the key. Allow time for the engine to idle down.
STEP 2: Test wire and make connection. At idle the tach wire should test between 1 to 4 Volts AC. As the
vehicle RPM’s increase the voltage on the meter will also increase. Always solder tach connections.
STEP 3: Learn tach. While the vehicle is at idle, hold the foot brake and activate the remote start function
on the remote control for 2.5 seconds. The parking lights will flash once and the siren will chirp once to
confirm a good tach signal. The parking lights will flash two times and the siren will chirp two times to
indicate the tach did not learn. Two seconds

Alternator Sensing
Alternator sensing is an alternative method the remote start can utilize to determine if the engine is running.
This is different than the no tach sensing mode so a connection must be made. IMPORTANT: The remotes
must be coded prior to setting up alternator sensing.
STEP 1: Change Option 2-10 to setting 2 - Alternator sensing.
STEP 2: Test wire and make connection. The stator wire is found at the vehicle’s alternator. Change your
multimeter to DC voltage before testing for this wire.
A. At rest, with the ignition off, the stator wire should test 0V DC.
B. Turn the ignition to the run position. The stator wire should now test between 4 – 6V DC.
C. Start the vehicle with the key. The stator wire should now test between 12 – 14V DC at idle.
STEP 3: Process complete – no further programming is required.
Tachless Mode – (Automatic Transmission Vehicles Only)
Tachless sensing is an alternative engine sensing mode. It does not require a connection to the vehicle other
than the main ignition harness.
STEP 1: Change Option 2-10 to setting 3 – Tachless Mode.
STEP 2: Process complete – there is no further programming required other than adjusting crank time
when necessary (see below).
Adjusting Crank Time: To adjust minimum crank times, refer to Option 2-12. To help ensure successful
starting, the system will automatically add additional crank time to the 2nd and 3rd start attempts. In
addition, there is a built in “Smart Resting Mode”. Traditional tach sensing is still highly recommended for
colder climates.
Timed Crank Setting – Automatic Transmissions Only
Option 2-10 setting 4 provides a timed 1.5 second crank for the remote start sequence. This option just
cranks the vehicle for 1.5 seconds and assumes remote start has completed. This option can be used for
GM and other vehicles with built in anti-grind systems.
Green/White Loop
This loop wire determines the transmission setting. The default position (uncut loop) is for manual
transmissions. When the loop is cut, the system will be ready for automatic transmissions. In the default
(manual transmission) mode, the system must be set up in Reservation mode prior to the vehicle being able
to remote start. IMPORTANT: All warranties or claims are void if a controller with a cut loop is installed on
a vehicle with a manual transmission.
Reservation Mode for Manual Transmissions
To remote start a manual transmission vehicle, the system must first be set up in reservation mode.
Reservation mode is designed to prevent the vehicle from remote starting while the transmission is in gear.

Installation Requirements
1. The vehicle’s door triggers must be connected to the control module. Prior to making final connections,
test the factory door triggers to ensure that they are functioning properly.
2. The vehicle’s emergency/parking brake wire must be connected to the control module. The proper vehicle wire usually provides a negative (-) trigger while the emergency / parking brake is set.
3. The vehicle’s clutch must be temporarily bypassed while the remote start cranks the engine. This bypass
simulates the clutch being depressed. For complete details on how to wire a momentary clutch bypass consult your CompuTech program or contact our technical support department by calling 888-820-3690.
IMPORTANT: Do not install a remote start in manual transmission vehicles with convertible / removable
tops and in user’s vehicles that leave their windows down. Firstech nor their authorized dealers will assume
responsibility for improper use or install.
Activating Reservation Mode
STEP 1: Start the vehicle with the key. Place the transmission in neutral, remove pressure from the pedal
brake, and set the emergency/parking brake.
STEP 2: Remove the key from the vehicle’s ignition. The vehicles engine should remain running even after
the key has been removed. If the vehicle does not remain running, check the emergency / parking brake
connection and your tach connection.
STEP 3: Exit the vehicle and close the door. The vehicle’s engine should shut off upon closing the door. If
the vehicle’s engine does not shut off, check the door trigger connection or wait for the factory dome-light
to go out. The Firstech system is in reservation mode and the vehicle is ready to safely remote start.
Additional Notes
Reservation mode will be cancelled if the control module recognizes the vehicles door, hood or trunk
opening – or if the alarm is triggered. Each time the end user wants to remote start their manual
transmission vehicle, they must set the control module in reservation mode. Reservation mode settings can
be programmed with Option 1-06.
Version Diagnostics
All the new control modules come with the ability to check which firmware is on the module. This is
accomplished by turning the ignition on. Then with 2 Way remotes you must hold buttons 1 and 4 together
for 2.5 seconds. With the 1 Way remotes you must hold the Lock and Key/Start buttons together for 2.5
seconds. Current version starts with 1 flash.
Blade Cartridge Slot and Connector
CM6000, CM6200, and CM6300 slot gives you the ability to use the Blade-AL and Blade-TB modules from
Firstech and ADS. With these modules you can virtually eliminate all wire connections between your control
module and bypass module. You only need to connect the main ignition harness and your needed wires on
the 20 pin Blade connector. For more information on how to program and wire the Blade please visit www.
idatalink.com for the specific wiring diagram for that vehicle.

The CM6 Series Blade connector has a locking tab. Non-locking tab blade harnesses will work
but you MUST TAKE CARE TO NOT PLUG THE HARNESS IN UPSIDE DOWN. Make sure the two
notches on the top of the harness face the top (CM and barcode sticker side) of the brain. When looking at
the wire side of the harness the two notches must be at the top of the plug.
Blade system includes:
1. Blade-AL or Blade-TB (NOTE: These modules are blank and must be flashed on your computer.)
2. 20 Pin locking wiring harness
3. 3 Pin harness used in some installs
IMPORTANT: Install diagrams are not included and must be downloaded from www.idatalink.com/
compustar. When flashing the Blade you can use the Y-Cable OP500 end and not CM4 Series end. ADS
and Firstech recommends using the 4 pin RS232 cable to avoid confusion. Cartridge must be removed to
flash the control module firmware when not using www.idatalink.com.
NOTE: The ADS-RNG C1, ADS-RNG C2, and ADS-RNG GM3 are not included and must be purchased
separately. The 20 pin Blade connector comes only with the Blade cartridge and not the CM6 control
modules.
WARNING: Manufacturer or seller assumes no responsibility for any injuries and/or damages caused by
improper care of the product such as decomposition, conversion, and transform done by a user voluntarily.
WARNING: There should be no wiring routed around any pedals which can cause a driving hazard.
Wiring Descriptions

There are two wires coming off of the relay; yellow/black and yellow. To utilize the anti-grind or starter-kill features, the vehicles starter wire must be cut in half, otherwise, cut the relay out of the harness and connect the yellow (Pin 6) directly to the vehicles’ starter wire. The starter kill/anti grind relay has a thin 24 guage blue wire. This must be connected to pin 1 (24 guage blue wire) on Connector 3.
IMPORTANT: For anti-grind and starter-kill applications, the yellow wire goes to the starter side of the vehicles starter wire and the yellow/black goes to the key side.
Pin 3 Green – Ignition 12V positive (+) output and input. This wire must be connected to the vehicle’s ignition for remote start and valet/program
ming. The proper wire will test 0V with the key in the off position, 12V (+) while the key is in the on posi-
tion and 12V (+) during crank. This pin also has a thin green wire that is
prewired to the starter kill relay. If you are not installing anti grind/starter kill, you do not need to connect the thin 24 guage green wire.
Pin 4 Black - Ground negative (-) input. This wire must be connected to the vehicle’s ground.
Pin 5 Red - Constant 12V positive (+) power input. These two wires must be con
nected. The proper vehicle wire will test
(+) 12V at all times while the key is in the off position, the on position and
during crank. Each wire has a 30 amp fuse on it. An optional relay with a 14 guage red wire and 30 amp fuse is for secondary ignition/accessory/starter wires. The short violet wire on Pin 85 is the trigger input wire that determines the (+) 12V output type of the long blue wire on Pin 30. For example, connecting the negative (-) Ignition output from Connector 3, to the short violet wire coming off of the relay, will provide an additional (+) 12V Ignition output from the long blue wire.

2-13 Timer Mode - This option enables the user to operate Timer Mode (see option 2-06). Remember that the user must still activate Timer mode using the remote (see the user manual for that remote for instructions). This option turns the remote start timer mode on the system.
3-01 Parking Lights while Remote Started - This option changes the parking light behavior during remote start.
3-03 Dome Light Delay – This option is used when connecting the door trigger input to the vehicles dome light circuit. It delays the door trigger input to prevent the door open icon displaying on 2 Way remotes upon lock/arm.
3-04
Starter-Kill – This option determines the mode of the anti-grind/starter-kill relay.
Default 1: Anti-grind + starter-kill
Option 2: Anti-grind only (no starter-kill)
Option 3: Anti-grind + passive starter-kill: starter-kill activates in 45 seconds after ignition is turned off.
3-05
Anti-Jacking – This option requires the starter-kill relay to be wired to the ignition vs. the starter wire.
Default 1: Acts like starter-kill: removes power from the ignition, which allows the car to crank but not start.
Option 2: Turns on anti-jacking: when the remote panics the system, power from the ignition will be removed at the end of the 30 second siren duration, thereby disabling the vehicle.

Option 3 & 4: Only available with Canadian remotes.
IMPORTANT: When using ignition-kill on manual transmission vehicles Option 2 will need to be utilized. Option 2 disables the anti-grind circuit while the vehicle is remote-started; if the anti-grind circuit is active and the start-kill relay is installed in the ignition, the relay will “buzz” while remote-
started.
3-09 Horn Output When Alarm is Triggered - This changes the behavior of the white horn wire when the alarm is triggered. With this setting you can change the wire to a constant (-) negative output for an additional siren.
3-10 Valet – This option changes valet modes.
Default 1: Key on/off five times or remote valet (I + III for 0.5 seconds) with key in the on position.
Option 2: Key on/off five times or remote valet (I+III for 0.5 seconds) – key does not need to be in the on position.
Option 3: Secure valet: RPS Valet or remote valet (I+III for 0.5 seconds) – this option prevents the system from being put into valet via key on/off five times. To set up the RPS Valet feature, review the “Placement and Use of Components” section.
3-11 Auxiliary settings – The Auxiliary settings adds five additional independent auxiliary outputs for a total of seven with this option turned on. Special Option Group 1 allows for independent timing of these outputs.
3-13 Defroster Temperature Control - When set to setting II, this option will disable the defroster output when the temperature is above 32 F / 0 C. Setting I will activate the defroster regardless of the temperature.
3-14 Defroster Timing - Some vehicles need a pulse to activate the defroster, others will need a constant output to remain active, you can use this option to adjust the duration of the defroster output.
3-15 Soft Disarm - When a vehicle has a factory alarm, and the Firstech alarm is triggered, you may have both alarms triggered at the same time. In the default setting, silencing the Firstech system will not send the disarm pulse to the factory system, therefore requiring the user to first silence the Firstech system and then unlock and disarm to silence the factory system. Setting II sends the disarm and 5 seconds later sends the rearm pulse.

3-16 RPS - This option changes the between the option RPS 2 or the new RPS Touch.
Please see the Placement and Use of Components section of this manual for details.
4-01 Aux 1 Output - This option determines the duration of the auxiliary 1 output. Setting IV allows the output duration to be set for a specific length of time.
4-02 Aux 2 Output - This option determines the duration of the auxiliary 2 output. Setting IV allows the output duration to be set for a specific length of time.
4-03 Aux 1 Output Control - This option controls the way auxiliary 1 is controlled at different events.
4-04 Aux 2 Output Control - This option controls the way auxiliary 2 is controlled at different events.
4-05 Secure Aux Output – On the default setting, button 4 on the remote must be pressed first before Aux 1 or Aux 2 can be triggered. This prevents accidental triggering of the outputs. Option setting II turns this feature off.
4-06 Aux 1 Input – This option changes the input behavior of the pre-warn wire on the Aux Input Sensor green connector.
Default 1: Will pre-warn with a negative (-) ground input.
Option 2: Will instant trigger with a negative (-) ground input.
Option 3: Will disarm the alarm with a negative (-) ground input. Used when adding an alarm to a
factory keyless entry system.
Option 4: Changes the output into an open circuit input.
4-07 Aux 2 Input – This option changes the input behavior of the instant trigger wire on the Aux Input Sensor green connector.
Default 1:. Will instant trigger with a negative (-) ground input.
Option 2: Will pre-warn with a negative (-) ground input.
Option 3: Will arm the alarm with a negative (-) ground input. Used when adding an alarm to a factory keyless entry system.
Option 4: Changes the output into an open circuit input.

4-08 Extended Accessory After Ignition Shutoff – This option keeps the Accessory wire powered up after the ignition is shut off. This can be used to keep the radio turned on even after the key is removed from the ignition (similar to GM vehicles).
4-09
Glow Plug or Key Sense – Default setting sets the wire as a glow plug input. Option setting 2 changes the wire to a key sense input. Key sense can be used to prevent reservation mode from setting and the system from passive arming while the key is still in the ignition. Key sense also turns off dome-light supervision when the key is inserted into the ignition.
4-10
Trigger Start or Closed Loop System – Default setting sets the pink wire on CN3 as a trigger start input, which will initiate remote start with a negative (-) trigger. Option 2-04 allows the number of pulses required to initiate remote start to be changed. Setting 2 changes the wire to a closed loop input, which makes it an instant alarm trigger when separated from ground - Ideal for protecting trailers or headlights.
4-11 Bypass Brand Through RS232 Port – Default setting allows for compatibility with ADS Idatalink
modules. Setting 2 changes compatibility to Fortin bypass modules.
4-12 Impact Sensor - This option changes between the standard included shock sensor and the optional DAS Sensor. The DAS sensor has additional programming. Please see the Placement and Use of Components section of this manual for details.
4-13 Antenna Power Save - Some people may not drive their vehicle very often, this may cause the battery to become discharged because it is not getting recharged on a regular basis. The antenna power save option will turn off the antenna after the specified amount of time to conserve power. While the antenna is asleep, the system will not respond to the remotes. Any type of input to the system will wake up the antenna, i.e.: ignition, brake, door, trunk, hood, shock, rps, ect. A remote start only user just needs to open their door to reactivate the system, however, a user with an alarm or alarm/
start system will need to trigger the prewarn stage of the shock sensor to quietly wake up the antenna.
4-14
Low Battery Warning - This feature option which is default to off. When the system is armed and the feature is on the main control unit will monitor the voltage of the vehicles battery at its connection point. When the battery voltage drops to or below 11.3 volts the control module will send a page to the 2 Way. It will beep several times for 5 seconds, every 50 seconds, 3 times and flash the battery indicator on the remote. When you query the remote or unlock/disarm the system the remote will display the voltage of the vehicle’s battery. When option 3 is set, 2-13 is set to option 2, and Timer Mode option is activated on the remote, the vehicle will remote start and run for 15 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions
CM6000
I have everything hooked up and the system will not respond.
A: The remotes need to be programmed. Review the “Common Procedure” section of this manual.
When remote starting the siren chirps 3 times and parking lights flash 3 then 1 time.
A: You must program tach before remote starting. Also be sure to check the foot brake and ignition wires on
the CM6000 and CM6200.
I am trying to program the control module with the OP500 Option Programmer and it flashes
“ER 01” when I plug it in to the antenna cable. What should I do?
A: Make sure that the system is not locked/armed. The last thing to check is the antenna cable or antenna
extension cable – make sure this is not damaged. If you need to, try another cable. When the OP500
is working properly, it will read “success good.” You no longer need to program the remotes before the
OP500 will sync.
What is the green/white wire loop inside the brain module?
A: This wire determines the transmission mode. With the loop intact, the system is set for manual
transmissions. With the loop cut, the system is set for automatic transmission.
Where do the blue and purple wires off the extra relay go on the CM6000/CM6200?
A: This is a pre-wired positive output, negative trigger relay. Use the secondary ignition, starter, and
accessory outputs from CN3 to give a negative trigger to the purple wire. This will determine the12V positive
(+) output of the blue wire, which you can then connect to your secondary ignition, starter, or accessory
wire.
I need a ground when armed wire, does the control module have one?
A: You can use pin 1-blue wire output on CN3 that goes to the starter kill relay. You must cut this wire and
place a diode in line so that when the ignition on the other side of the relay goes to ground, it won’t back
feed to your accessory. Install the stripe side of the diode facing the control module.
Does the CM6 series have tachless mode?
A: Yes. The CM6000 and CM6200 all are tachless. Review the “Common Procedures” section of this
manual.
All my connections are made and remotes programmed, how do I program the tach?
A: Review the “Common Procedures” section of this manual. You must have your remotes programmed,
start your vehicle, then hold the remote start button. Vehicle should chirp and/or flash once if it programs,
three times if it does not like the tach source.

The vehicle will lock and unlock, but will not remote start or flash the parking lights.
A: The system is in Valet Mode. Tap buttons (I) + (III) for a half second to exit Valet Mode.
Whenever I try to arm the vehicle, it chirps the siren 3 times and will not arm.
A: Check the hood and trunk trigger inputs.
When I turn the ignition on the parking lights flash 3 times and/or siren chirps 3 times. What is
the problem?
A: When you program only 1 Way remotes to a 2 Way antenna and no 2 Way remotes the control module
reminds you of this situation each time you turn the ignition on. It does not affect the operation of the system
but will continue to do so until you program both 2 and 1 Way remotes to the 2 Way antenna.
Do the door locks flip flop in polarity?
A: No. You can use the CompuPack (DM700 relay pack) for high current positive (+) locks, or the DM600
harness used for low current 600mA positive (+) locks.
What are Firmware Version Diagnostics?
A: When you turn the Ignition on and hold buttons 1 and 4 or Lock and Key/Start for 2.5 seconds then the
parking lights will flash 1 time on the CM6 series showing V.1.
What is this cartridge slot on the rear of the CM6000, CM6200, and CM6300?
A: This is the slot for the Blade cartridge system. This slot is for the Idatalink Blade remote start bypass
modules. For more information on the compatibility and install information please visit www.idatalink.com/
fitguide. Using this system eliminates many connections between your standard control module and bypass
module. IMPORTANT: If you are not using the Blade then you will not have or use the 20 pin connector
next to the lock harness.
How do I take the system out of Valet Mode with a 1 Button Remote?
A: Turn the ignition on, tap the button 5 times within 7 seconds and the system will exit Valet Mode.
Why are the ignition controlled doorlocks option not working?
A. Check option programming. Option 1-09 should be on either setting 2 or 3. The option has to also be
turn on via the remote. On 2 Way LCD remotes tap buttons I and IV for 0.5 second, the parking lights will
flash once to show the option is turned on. On 1 Way remotes tap the Lock and Start buttons for a half
second.
The vehicle remote starts when disarmed, but not when armed.
A: The starter kill relay was installed backwards. Check to make sure the yellow/black wire is going to the
ignition side of the wire, and that the yellow wire is going to the engine side.
The vehicle starts and shuts down 3 times in a row.
A: This usually means that the engine sensing mode is not working correctly. If you are using a coil, change
to an injector or try alternator sense mode.

I’m using the RPS Touch but my LED’s and Secure Valet LED does not flash.
A: The CM6000 and CM6300 LED and Secure Valet LEDs will not work when using an RPS Touch. This is a
hardware limitation. The RPS 2 will work with LEDs and Secure Valet.
On the brain, how do I set the auxiliaries?
A: You must have an Option Programmer (FT-OP500-KIT) to set the auxiliaries on the CM4000, CM4200DX, CM4300, CM5000, CM5200, CM6000, CM6200 and CM6300. First choose two POC wires on
CN3 that you are not using. With the OP500 go into the Special Option Group 2 and set those POC’s to
Aux 1 and Aux 2. Review the “Special Option Group” programming section of this manual. On the CM6
Series control modules, Auxiliary 1 is pre programmed on CN3, Pin 19, Violet Wire.
