MANUAL OR AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION SETUP
This module may be installed on vehicles with manual or automatic transmissions. It is originally configured for
manual transmissions. If the vehicle you are working on is automatic, it is necessary to make a few quick and
easy modifications before the unit is connected. In the event that the configuration requires changes afterwards,
a complete reset will be necessary before those changes become effective.
To install this unit in a vehicle with a MANUAL transmission:
1.
Make sure the Yellow loop on the PC board is connected. (Default)
2.
Connect the Orange handbrake wire, located on the 12-pin harness, to the vehicle handbrake
switch. (-)
3.
Connect the Blue/White (+) door input OR the Grey (-) door input wire, located on the 12-pin
harness, to the vehicle door pin wire. It will monitor all the doors of the vehicle (only use 1 of the 2
door trigger inputs).
4.
Make sure the Purple TACH wire is installed on a TACH source – the TACH wire MUST be hooked
up when the module is set for a manual transmission.
5.
Make all your regular connections.
6.
Power up the unit by first inserting the 5-pin connector, then the 6-pin connector and finally the 12pin connector. The parking lights will flash 4 times.
7.
When learning the transmitter, the parking lights will flash 5 times quickly.
8.
Upon the first successful remote start, the system will lock the transmission settings to manual
mode.
To install this unit in a vehicle with an AUTOMATIC transmission:
1.
Cut the loop on the back of the remote starter module (Yellow wire).
2.
Make sure the Orange handbrake wire is not connected to any of the vehicle circuits (cut and
tape).
3.
Make all the regular connections.
4.
Power up the unit by first inserting the 5-pin connector, then the 6-pin connector and finally the 12pin connector. The parking lights will flash 4 times.
5.
When learning the first transmitter, the parking lights will flash 5 times quickly then give 2 slow
flashes.
6.
Upon the first successful remote start, the system will lock the transmission settings to automatic
mode.
Notice
The manufacturer will accept no responsibility for any electrical damage resulting from improper installation of the product, be that either
damage to the vehicle itself or to the unit. This unit must be installed by a certified technician using all safety devices supplied. Please
note that this guide has been written for properly trained Autostart technicians: a certain level of skills and knowledge is therefore
assumed. Please review the installation guide carefully before beginning any work.
Warning
Before installing the unit, if installing on a vehicle with a manual transmission, test that the OEM Door Switch contacts of the vehicle work
well, and that the Parking Brake system operates properly. If installing on a vehicle with an automatic transmission, test that the vehicle
does not start when the gearshift lever is in the “Drive” position. If it starts in gear, reset the remote starter to manual transmission.

Note: If upon pressing the START/STOP button the parking lights give 3 slow flashes, make sure that the
Orange handbrake wire is not connected, the hand brake is not engaged and that the yellow loop is cut and
isolated/taped.
NEW FEATURE – PUSH TO START
Disabled by default, PTS mode is a special feature that is intended to facilitate the remote starter installation on
most Push To Start vehicles. With PTS mode enabled, the remote starter will offer the installer a negative start
output (to pulse the vehicle’s PTS switch), as well as a (+) brake switch output (no external relay necessary).
With PTS enabled, the White/Green wire on the 12 pin harness becomes your negative (-) PTS switch output. It
will give a one second output intended to pulse the PTS switch. Also, the Purple crank output becomes your
brake switch output (this will turn the brake circuit ON for crank).
NEW FEATURE – HYBRID OPTION
Warning: For automatic transmissions only.
This option is disabled by default. It can be enabled in Mode 3 of the programming options.
HYBRID mode is a special feature that is intended to facilitate the remote starter installation on most Hybrid
vehicles. With HYBRID mode enabled, the remote starter will give a four second crank output on its crank wire
(It will not rely on VTS to stop the crank cycle). The only way to shorten the four second crank output is to
program a tach signal to the remote starter. If a tach signal is programmed, the remote starter will act like
normal (the HYBRID feature should be used when a tach reference is not available from the vehicle or the
bypass being used at the time of installation).

SETTING UP THE TACH
VIRTUAL TACH ADJUSTMENT
Warning: For automatic transmissions only.
Virtual Tach System combines the latest microcontroller technology and a complex algorithm that took years to
develop. VTS is able to effectively monitor the engine starting sequence and release the starter at the right time
without physically connecting the tach wire to the remote starter. The VTS constantly monitors the data and
readjusts itself automatically in order to maximize its capability to start the engine properly in any weather or
deteriorating battery condition.
OPTIONAL TIME DELAY ADJUSTMENT IN VIRTUAL TACH SYSTEM
Follow these steps to program crank time adjustment, if needed:
1. In programming mode (page 3).
Before the lights go out, press and hold the brake pedal and press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons
simultaneously  the parking lights will flash 4 times. Do not release the brake pedal.
2. Press the LOCK button if you wish to increase the time delay or the UNLOCK button if you want to
decrease it. The time delay will be increased or decreased by 50 ms and the parking lights will flash
once every time the LOCK or UNLOCK button is pressed.
3. Press the TRUNK button to save the settings you have entered.
4. Release the brake pedal – the time delay programming is now complete.
MULTI-SPEED TACH PROGRAMMING (IF INSTALLED)
1. In programming mode (page 3).
2. Before the lights go out, press and hold the brake pedal and press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons
simultaneously  the parking lights will flash 4 times. At that point, release the brake pedal.
3. Start the engine and allow the vehicle to reach regular engine idle speed.
4. Once the engine is running at normal idle speed, press the brake pedal and keep it down until you hear the
parking lights output click 5 times.
5. Release the brake pedal the tach programming is now complete.
Caution! – Tach jumper settings:
Some new vehicles have a higher TACH voltage threshold, which would fall out of the normal TACH trigger
circuit of the remote car starter. Changing the jumper to TACH Threshold HIGH will allow the module to
properly detect the TACH signal. BUT, if you are having trouble with the TACH, please call our tech support
team. Problems requiring changing the TACH jumper settings are very rare.
5. Exit the vehicle and close all doors, hood and trunk.
x
6.
To save the new settings: press LOCK and UNLOCK simultaneously. If 3 chirps are returned, the new
setting has been saved.
You have 20 more seconds to select one of the sub-menus if needed.
