Step 1, Heavy Gauge Wire Connections
Ground Wire
The BLACK wire connects to the pin next to the light flash jumper
fuse. First strip back a ¾-inch section of the insulation off the
BLACK wire and crimp a ring terminal (not provided) to that wire.
Locate a clean, paint-free metal surface in the drivers kick panel
(do not ground on dash). Using a self-tapping screw, drill the
screw with the ring terminal to the kick panel. Once screwed down,
pull on the wire to ensure a good connection.

Constant Power and Ignition wires
Almost all your power and ignition wires can be found behind the
key cylinder under the lower driver's side dash panel. Using the
appropriate hand tools, remove the lower dash panel taking care
not to break any parts. If the panel does not come off easily, check
for any additional screws you may have missed.
12
© 2006 Directed Electronics
Once the lower dash panel has been removed, locate the ignition
harness at the back of the key cylinder. This is usually a group of
heavy gauge wires (approximate 14ga.).
Place the black lead of the LED tester to a clean metal surface in
the kick panel area and secure it. Probe one of the thicker gauge
wires. The ignition wire colors of your specific vehicle can be
obtained at www.autocommand.com.
Testing for Constant Power Wires
WARNING! Before making any connection to constant
battery power make sure that the two 30 amp fuses
are removed from the fuse holders on the two pink 12
VOLT wires. Failure to do so may cause fire or shorting of sensitive electrical components.
© 2006 Directed Electronics
13
With the key in the off position, test the suspect wire. The
constant power wire will read 12V on the multimeter. Once the
constant power wire has been identified, solder the two heavy
gauge 12 VOLT wires (PINK) from the control module to it and
wrap the connection with electrical tape.
note! If the vehicle has more than one constant
power wire, utilize two of them. Connect one of the
heavy gauge PINK wires to one of the constant
power wires and the other heavy gauge PINK wire to
the other constant power wire.
Testing for Ignition Wires
With the multimeter lead still connected in the kick panel, locate
the suspected ignition wire. It will test differently than constant
12 volts. Place the red lead of the multimeter on the suspected
wire. With the key in the off position the multimeter will read 0.
Turn the key to the on position and the multimeter will read 12
volts. Now, watching your multimeter, turn the key to the crank
position. If the 12 volts stays on, then you have found your ignition wire. If the wire tests correctly, solder the BLUE heavy gauge
wire to it and wrap the connection with electrical tape.
If the vehicle requires more than one ignition as per the web site
information, follow the same test procedure and solder the GREEN
heavy gauge wire to it then wrap the connection with electrical
tape. If your vehicle has only one ignition wire, secure the GREEN
wire and dress it out of the way.

Accessory and Starter wires
The starter and accessory wires will be located in the same harness
as the ignition and constant power.
To find the accessory wire leave the multimeter’s black lead
connected to ground. Take the red lead and probe the wire
suspected to be the accessory wire. With the key off, your multimeter should read 0 volts. Turn the key to the on position the
multimeter should read 12 volts. Now turn the key to the crank
position. If you have the correct accessory wire the multimeter
will read 0 volts while the starter is cranking and 12 volts once
the key returns to the on position. If the wire tests correctly, strip
some insulation off and solder the WHITE heavy gauge wire and
wrap it with electrical tape.
If your vehicle requires more than one accessory then the GREEN
ign2 wire can be programmed to function as an accessory output.
16

vehicles will trip a check engine light if the
starter wire is cut.
Once you locate the starter wire, cut the wire in half (check the
web information before cutting) and try to start the vehicle. If
the vehicle does not start, the correct wire has been identified.
Reconnect both ends of the starter wire while soldering the thick
YELLOW wire of the heavy guage wires to it and wrap the connection with electrical tape.

Step 2, H1, Main Harness Connections
Factory Alarm Disarm
Since many newer vehicles come equipped with a factory alarm it
is necessary to disarm it during remote start. Do not mistake a
factory alarm with an immobilizer system. They each require
different disarm operations.
Locate the factory alarm disarm wire using the web site information. Once the suspect wire is located, place the multi-meter's red
lead to a (+)12 volt constant source and secure it. Put the multimeter in the DC position then probe the suspect wire with the
black lead of your meter. While probing the wire, place the key in
the driver's door cylinder. Turn it to the unlock position and hold
it when testing for the disarm wire. The multimeter should read
12V and will go back to 0V when the key is released.
When the correct wire has been found, solder the BROWN/WHITE
wire of the 6-pin harness to the wire that you determined to be
the factory alarm disarm wire. After this wire has been connected
wrap the connection with electrical tape.
note! On some vehicles the Factory Alarm Disarm
wire is connected to a Body Control Module or a Door
Module. If you find this configuration, please call
Technical Support at 1-800-477-1382.
note! Some vehicles use a + trigger factory alarm
system. Use the website to determine if your vehicle
has a + trigger. If your vehicle has such a system call
1-800-477-1382 for live technical assistance as special wiring and an additional relay is required.

Parking light flash
There are several different types of parking light circuits. The
following description is for a standard positive-triggered parkinglight circuit, only. If the web vehicle information suggests a (-)
parking light circuit, the fuse jumper (on the side of the module)
must be moved to the opposite position.
The default position for this jumper is for a positive parking light
circuit.
Using the web information on the vehicle, locate the suspected
wire. Connect the black multimeter lead to ground in the kick
panel. Probe the suspected wire with the red lead of your meter.
With the switch in the off position the multimeter should read 0
volts. While watching the multimeter, turn your headlight switch
to the parking light position. The multimeter should read 12 volts.
While testing the suspected wire, run the dash dimmer light
control up and down-the voltage should NOT vary. If the voltage
does vary then this is the wrong wire. Continue probing to find the
correct wire.
Once you have identified the correct wire, solder the small YELLOW
wire of the 6-pin harness to it and wrap the connection with electrical tape.
important! Remember this description is for a (+)
parking light circuit. A (-) circuit will test differently.
Also, if the web information requires using resistors
for parking lights, contact Technical Support.

Safety Shutdown Wires
With all ignition wires properly connected, find the appropriate
safety shutdown wires. These are the brake wire and hood pin
wires.
WARNING! These wires are meant to protect the
vehicle and anyone near the vehicle. They MUST
be connected to prevent damage to the vehicle
and possible bodily injury.
First locate the factory brake wire using your multimeter. Find the
switch at the top of the metal arm coming off the brake pedal. Use
your vehicle specific wiring information to determine the color of
this wire. With the black lead of your multimeter still in the kick
panel, probe the suspected wire with the red lead of your multimeter. With the brake pedal at rest the multimeter should read 0
volts. While watching the multimeter, depress the brake pedal.
The multimeter should read 12 volts. Once you have located the
correct brake wire, solder the small ORANGE wire in the 6-pin
harness to it and wrap the connection with electrical tape.
WARNING! Do not use the vehicle until you
confirm the operation of the brake shutdown.
Installing the hood pin switch requires drilling a hole in a metal
lip under the hood. Choose a location that will allow the pin
switch to be completely depressed when the hood is closed. The
pin switch has a spade connector on the bottom for the wire
connection.
Crimp your spade connector to the hood pin wire and run the wire
into the vehicle's passenger compartment through a factory rubber
grommet (at the same time you might want to run Tachometer
Input wire and Horn output wire from Optional Harness through
the fire wall as you may need to connect them using the following
steps).
© 2006 Directed Electronics
21
Using a sharp, pointed object poke a hole into the grommet
(being careful not to damage any existing wires in the grommet)
and attach the wire to the object with electrical tape. Pull the
wire through the grommet taking extra care to keep the wire away
from any moving parts or anything that will generate extreme
heat.
An alternative to this method would be to find a spot on the firewall with sufficient clearance on both sides and drill an access
hole through the firewall. Take note of what is directly on the
other side of where you are drilling as to not puncture brake cylinders, computers, etc. Once the wire is run into the vehicle and
secured from any moving parts, solder the wire to the VIOLET wire
of the 6-pin harness and wrap the connection with electrical tape.
WARNING! This wire MUST be connected. Do not
use the vehicle until you confirm the operation
of the hood pin shutdown. Improper operation
could result injury or death.

Step 3, H2 Harness
Engine Monitoring Explained
During remote start the system will need to know if the engine is
running. The module does this by monitoring the voltage of the
vehicle's electrical system (or the tachometer-see next section).
Voltage Monitoring
note! If the system has been programmed for
Tachometer monitoring previously, it must be
reprogrammed to Voltage monitoring.
Vehicle electrical systems usually rest at about 12.6 volts when
the engine is not running. This system is programmed to detect
the rise in battery voltage that occurs when the charging circuit
activates after starting, and keep the engine running if the rise is
adequate. It will make up to three start attempts before discontinuing due to an inadequate voltage rise.
Some vehicles have alternators that do not activate immediately
or do not increase voltage sufficiently after starting, this system
will compensate by delaying the time before reading the battery
voltage on the second and third start attempts. This delay will
allow most alternators to activate so the remote start will
continue to run.
The voltage read times are:
First attempt: 10 seconds
Second attempt: 20 seconds
Third attempt: 50 seconds
After the third start attempt, if the voltage increase is still not
adequate to keep the engine running, the Tachometer input
option should be used to monitor the engine.

Tachometer Wire
WARNING! In the following procedure DO NOT use
a test light. Use of this type of tester can cause
grounding of sensitive electrical components causing damage, including damage to the power train
control module. A digital multi-meter is required to
test for this wire.
Do not wear loose clothing that could get entangled
in rotating engine components. Ensure that your
hands and arms are well clear of these rotating
components when working in the engine compartment. Lastly, ensure that all wires and tools are
clear of falling into or entanglement with these
rotating components.
Identify the suspected tach wire according to the web information. Next, place the black lead of a MULTI-METER on the negative battery post and secure it. Put the multi-meter in the AC position and connect the probe to the suspect wire with the red lead
of the multi-meter. Then start the vehicle with the key. With the
engine at idle the multi-meter should read between .50 volts to 6
volts, and should fluctuate when you rev the engine.
Have a second person press the gas pedal to increase the RPMs
and watch the meter display. When the RPMs increase the voltage
should rise slightly (not all tachometer outputs will rise when
engine RPM increases). Once the correct tachometer wire has been
identified, turn the vehicle off.
Run the GREEN wire from the 8-pin harness through the firewall
into the engine compartment along side the hood pin wire. Use
the same procedure as with the hood pin wire and pull the wire
through the grommet taking extra care to keep it away from any
moving parts or anything that will generate extreme heat. Once
the wire is run into the engine compartment, strip a small portion

of insulation off the tachometer wire in the vehicle and solder the
green tachometer input wire to it. Then wrap the connection with
electrical tape.
note! If using a tach signal, the tach signal MUST
be learned before using the remote starter.
LEARNING YOUR TACH SIGNAL
If using a tach wire, you must learn the tach signal after
completing the installation.
To learn tach signal:
1.
Start car with key
2.
Wait about 5 seconds for the engine to idle down
3.
Press and hold the Momentary switch (about 10
seconds)
4.
Tach learned: After a few seconds the LED will flash 2
times and turn on. Continue to hold the switch for 2 - 3
seconds and release.
5.
Tach not learned: The LED will not turn on and will flash
3 times when the momentary switch is released. Check
the connections and try again.

Following is a brief description of the remainder of the wires in
the H2 harness. For specific details on connecting these outputs
contact Technical Support at 1-800-477-1382.
Horn wire
The Blue wire provides an output for activating the vehicle horn
circuit during remote start.
important! This is a low current output and that
requires an external relay when connected to circuits
that draw more than 400mA in current.
Wait-to-start wire
The Red/Black wire is for use with diesel engines that require a
short delay for the glow plugs to warm up before cranking the
engine. 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 Red/Black wire can be directly connected. If the vehicle uses
a positive wire (12V to turn on the bulb) a relay must be used to
change the polarity.
Ignition Output wire
The Yellow/Green wire should be the ONLY the ignition input to an
existing aftermarket alarm system. This wire will prevent the host
system from sensing that the ignition is on during remote start
operation.
RAP or Retained Accessory Power
The BROWN wire is designed to turn off accessories that remain on
after the ignition is turned off. It will pulse 10 seconds after the
remote start status output ceases and will make the vehicle body
control module think the door has opened, thus turning the accessories off.

important! this is a low current output and that
requires an external relay when connected to circuits that draw more than 400mA in current.
Headlight Control wire
The Yellow/Brown wire provides an output for activating the
vehicle headlight circuit. It is programmable in Feature Menu
1/10 for the type of ignition controlled activation.

Step 4, Immobilizer Bypass Modules
Most newer vehicles have a factory engine immobilizer system
designed to prevent any unauthorized use of the vehicle. These
immobilizers will cut off power to the starter and the fuel supply
preventing a thief from starting the vehicle.
There are several types of immobilizers, with the most common
being the resistance-based passlock/passlock 2 systems found on
most newer GM vehicles. This system can be bypassed using the
20402, 29402 or 556L immobilizer bypass modules available at
your local authorized retailer or at www.directedstore.com. The
majority of transponder-based immobilizer systems can be
bypassed using the 20402, 29402 or 556U immobilizer bypass
module available at your local authorized retailer.
The WHITE/BLACK wire of the 6-pin harness supplies a 400mA (-)
output as soon as the control module begins the remote start
process. This wire can be used to activate an immobilizer bypass
unit.
note! Any vehicle equipped with a factory immobilizer must use an immobilizer bypass module to
remote start. If not used, the vehicle ignition or
fuel supply circuits could lock up and require a
costly trip to the dealer to reset the computer system.

Testing the system
Neutral Safety Test
Some vehicles do not have an electrical neutral safety switch.
Instead, a mechanical neutral safety switch that physically interrupts the starter wire is used when the vehicle is in any drive gear.
If the remote start is interfaced before this switch, it will provide
protection from starting in gear.
However, 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 car 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.
important! This test must be performed to determine if the vehicle will start while in gear. If the
vehicle attempts to start during this test you
must call Technical Support at 1-800-477-1382
for assistance before using the remote start feature.
Testing the Neutral Safety Switch
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.
1.
38
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 shifter in the drive position.
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 does not engage, no additional safety
interfaces are required.
9.
If the starter engages, immediately depress the brake to
shut the remote start system down.
IF THE ENGINE ATTEMPTED TO START THEN THE TEST HAS FAILED
CALL TECHNICAL SUPPORT FOR ASSISTANCE AT 1-800-477-1382
warning! If the vehicle fails this test the remote
start must be disabled until the proper Safety
Interface has been installed that will keep the
vehicle from starting while in gear. Failure to do so
may result in property damage, injury or death.

39
Remote Start Test
Once steps 1-5 have been completed, the operation of the system
can be tested.
Ensure that the two 30-amp fuses are in the relay harness PINK
wire fuse holders. Make sure that the vehicle is in park with the
emergency brake on and the hood closed. Pulse the activation
input wire 2 times to initiate the remote start function. The
parking lights should flash to confirm the remote start command
has been received, The accessories and ignition should turn on
followed by the starter cranking and the vehicle engine running
(this may take a moment to initiate). Pulse the activation input
wire 2 times again and the engine will stop running. (See
Programming System settings section for 1 press remote start
operation)
This completes the Remote Start testing, if all functions do not
work correctly check your wiring against the manual and verify all
connections. If you still experience problems contact Directed
Technical Support at 1-800-477-1382.

Troubleshooting
➜ The ignition comes on, but the starter will not crank.
Does it start with the key in the ignition? If so, does the vehicle
have an engine immobilizer? Does it start with the brake pedal
depressed? (Make sure to disconnect the brake shutdown when
performing this test.) If so, it may have a brake/starter interlock.
Is the correct starter wire being energized? Check by energizing it
yourself with a fused test lead.
➜ The starter cranks for 1 or 2-seconds but does not start.
The wrong ignition wire is being energized or the system's ignition and accessory wires have been connected backwards. Also,
the vehicle may have two ignition circuits. Try activating the unit
with the ignition key in the "run" position. If the vehicle then
runs normally, retest your ignition system.
➜ The starter continues to crank after the car has started.
Has the tach wire been learned? See the Tach Learning section of
this guide. Is the tach wire receiving the correct information?
Either the wrong tach wire has been used, or a bad connection
exists. Verify that all of the heavy gauge wires are plugged into
the correct tabs on the control unit. If they are incorrectly
connected, the starter could stay engaged.
➜ The climate control system does not work.
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.
➜ The remote start will not activate.
© 2006 Directed Electronics
41
Check to ensure that the hood is not open and that the brake
pedal is not depressed. Check harnesses and connections. Make
sure the harnesses are fully plugged into the remote start module.
Make sure there are good connections to the vehicle wiring. Check
voltage and fuses. Use a meter and check for voltage between the
RED wire and the BLACK ground wire. If you have less than battery
voltage, check both 30A fuses on the main power wires. Also make
sure that the ground wire is going to a good paint-free chassis
ground.
➜ The remote start will activate but the starter never engages.
1. Check for voltage on the YELLOW starter wire two seconds
after the remote start becomes active. If there is voltage
present, skip to Step 4. If there is no voltage present,
advance to Step 2.
2. Check the 30A fuses.
3. Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? Some Immobilizer
systems will not allow the vehicle to crank if active.
4. Check connections. The two PINK heavy gauge input wires
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 PINK 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.
➜ The vehicle will start and run only for about 10 seconds.
Is the remote start module programmed for voltage sense? If so,
try programming the unit to tach mode.
