WARNING! Be certain that the vehicle is outdoors before using this or any remote
vehicle starting device. A running engine produces dangerous carbon monoxide fumes which can be harmful or fatal if prolonged exposure occurs. DO NOT remote start the vehicle if it is garaged.
YOUR “CODE HOPPING“ TRANSMITTERS
The transmitters included with your new security system use the most advanced
and secure form of radio frequency transmission available on any current automotive security system. Some of today’s sophisticated auto thieves use a device
known as a code grabber, which will receive and store the signal from your
keychain transmitter and re-transmit at a later time to disarm your system.
Your Keeloq Code Hopping transmitters will change their signal every time the
button is pressed, so when a thief grabs then re-transmits your signal, the alarm
system will not respond.
Page 3
128-8774b

If your transmitter button is pressed more than fifty times
while it is out of range of the vehicle (children playing with
your keys), the transmitter will not operate when you return
to the vehicle, and will need to be re-aligned to the receiver.
To do this, simply press button 1, (lock), two times within a
one second time period. The system will now respond to
that transmitter each time a button is pressed.
NOTE:This system is custom configurable and can be set
up to operate with a number of options controlled from any
transmitter button or button combination. For reference, we
will describe operation assuming that your system is programmed for separate lock and unlock buttons. Also reference will be made to the icons as shown on the buttons left.
NOTE: The LCD based remote will be explained in detail further in this manual
See "System Status" described later in this manual. Consult your installation center if your system has been configured differently.
NOTE: Your system has the option of using a siren, the vehicle horn, or both for
the sounding device. Where the siren is referenced below, the horn or
both may in fact chirp, or beep.
ARMING THE SYSTEM - ACTIVE
1. Turn off the engine, exit the vehicle, and close all doors, hood lid and trunk lid.
2. Press and release Lock/Arm button on the keychain transmitter.
 The dash mounted LED begins to flash slowly.
 Parking Lights flash one time.
 Siren sounds one chirp.
If the siren/horn sounds 3 chirps, then you have left a door, trunk, or
hood lid ajar. Simply close the opened entry point to provide full protection. If the siren "chirped" three times, sometime after arming, the
exclusive delayed dome light learn circuit has been programmed and
the system detected a open entry point after the learned delay expired.
Again, closing the hood, trunk, or doors will correct the problem and you
do not need to disarm the system to make the correction. If the siren/
horn did not sound when arming, then the chirps have been turned off
and you should refer to the section titled "ELIMINATING THE ARM/DISARM CHIRPS" in this manual.
 Doors Lock - Optional
NOTE: If the optional Headlamp illumination feature has been added, and has
been selected for operation when arming, as an added convenience, the
system will turn on the headlights when the system is armed.
SILENT ARMING - ACTIVE (Feature must be activated during programming)
During step 2 above, hold the transmitter button for 2 seconds then release. The
unit will arm without the chirps for this one lock cycle.
ARMING THE SYSTEM - PASSIVE (AUTOMATIC)
(Must be activated during programming)
Page 4

1. Turn off the engine, exit the vehicle and close and lock all doors, hood lid and
trunk lid.
 The dash mounted LED begins to flash rapidly, indicating 30 second passive
arming has begun.
2. Opening any protected entry point during the 30 second passive arming cycle
will immediately suspend automatic arming and the 30 second passive arming cycle will restart when all doors are closed. At the end of the passive
arming cycle;
 The dash mounted LED begins to flash slowly.
 Parking Lights flash one time.
 Siren sounds one chirp
If the siren did not sound when arming, then the chirps have been turned off and
you should refer to the section titled “ELIMINATING THE ARM / DISARM CHIRPS“
in this manual.
 Doors Lock - Optional
Door locking during passive arming is a selectable feature. The alarm can be
programmed to allow the doors to lock only when arming using the keychain
transmitter and they will not automatically lock during passive arming.
PROTECTION WHILE THE SYSTEM IS ARMED
 Opening any protected door, hood or trunk lid will cause the alarm to immediately sound. The alarm will continue to sound for 30 seconds, then stop and
continue to monitor all protected entry points. If the thief left a door opened, the
alarm will sound for six 30 second cycles, remain armed and ignore that triggered zone.\
 Whenever the system is armed, the dash mounted LED indicator will slowly
flash. This serves as a visual deterrent to the potential thief. The LED is a very
low current bulb and will not cause the vehicle’s battery to drain, even when left
unattended for extended periods.
 Whenever the system is triggered, the vehicle’s parking lights will flash for the
full 30 second alarm cycle, attracting visual attention to the vehicle.
 Optional - Whenever the system is armed, the vehicle’s starting circuit will be
bypassed. If the thief should choose to ignore the siren, the vehicle can not be
started.
 Any mild impact to the vehicle’s glass will cause the alarm to sound a short
series of warning tones.
 Any strong impact to the vehicle’s glass will cause the alarm to trigger for the
full 30 second alarm cycle.
NOTE: If the optional interior illumination circuit was installed, the interior light
will flash as well for the full 30 second alarm cycle.
DISARMING THE SYSTEM
NOTE: If the optional 2 step door unlock circuit is installed, when the unlock
transmitter button is activated, the drivers door only will unlock, pressing the
unlock button a second time will cause all doors to unlock.
NOTE: If your transmitter has been configured with single button Lock/Unlock, to
Page 5
128-8774b

activate the all door unlock feature operate the Lock/Unlock button a second
time within 3 seconds of the first unlock command.
1. As you approach the vehicle, press and release the Unlock/Disarm button on
the keychain transmitter.
 The dash mounted LED turns off.
The LED will start flashing rapidly, indicating that the system is re-arming
automatically. Open any door to suspend the automatic arming.
 Parking Lights flash two times.
If the parking lights flashed three times, then the alarm was triggered in your
absence. Before turning the key on, examine the LED to identify which zone was
triggered.
 Siren sounds two chirps.
If the siren sounds 4 chirps, then the alarm was triggered in your absence. Before
turning the key on, examine the LED and refer to the INTRUSION WARNING
SIGNALS section of this manual to identify which zone was triggered.
If the siren did not sound when disarming, then the chirps have been turned off
and you should refer to the section titled “ELIMINATING THE ARM / DISARM
CHIRPS“ in this manual.
 Doors Unlock - Optional
 2 Step Doors Unlock - Optional
NOTE: If the optional Headlamp illumination feature has been added and has
been selected for operation when disarming, as an added convenience, the
system will turn on the headlights when the system is disarmed.
SILENT DISARMING (Feature must be activated during programming)
During step 1 above, hold the transmitter button for 2 seconds then release.
The unit will arm without the chirps for this one lock cycle.
WHILE THE SYSTEM IS SOUNDING
If during a triggered state, you wish to shut off the siren without disarming your
security system, simply press and release any transmitter button other than the
Unlock/Disarm button. This action will turn off the siren yet leave the vehicle fully
armed and protected. This feature is particularly useful if you are aware of children
playing near your vehicle that may accidently trigger your security system. In this
case you can cancel the siren sounding without disarming your alarm.
INTRUSION WARNING SIGNALS
This system will inform you if an intrusion attempt has occurred while you were
away from the vehicle. If an intrusion attempt has occurred, the siren will
chirp 4 times and the parking lights will flash 3 times when disarming the system. Enter the vehicle and observe the red dash mounted LED to identify
which zone was triggered.
 If the LED is flashing one time...pause...one time...pause...etc., then an
intrusion attempt was made to the shock sensor, or an accessory triggering device that may have been added to the system.
Page 6
128-8774b
6 of 24
 If the LED is flashing two times...pause...two times...pause...etc., then
an intrusion attempt was made to a hood or trunk pin switch that was
added to the system or to a light activated entry point if the alarm was
installed using the voltage sensing feature.
 If the LED is flashing three times...pause...three times...pause...etc.,
then an intrusion attempt was made through one of the vehicle’s doors.
These intrusion warning indicators are stored in the system’s memory and will
only be erased when the ignition key is turned on.
PUSH-BUTTON LED RECEIVER VALET/OVERRIDE/SAFETY CONTROLSWITCH
The Pushbutton LED switch located in the receiver allows you to temporarily
bypass all alarm functions, eliminating the need to hand your transmitter to
parking attendants or garage mechanics. When the system is in valet mode, all
alarm functions are bypassed, however the remote panic feature and remote
door locks will remain operational. To use the valet mode, the system must first
be disarmed either by using your keychain transmitter, or by activating your personalized manual override code.
1. Enter the vehicle, and turn the ignition key to the on position.
2. Press and hold the Push-Button switch until the LED turns on solid. The
system will remain in the valet mode.
3. To return to normal operation, press and release the Push-Button switch any
time the ignition is on.
NOTE: Always remember to return the vehicle to the valet off position. This will
ensure that the vehicle remains protected at all times.
MANUALLY OVERRIDING YOUR SYSTEM:
USING THE RECEIVERS PUSHBUTTON OVERRIDE SWITCH
Your Security System can be disarmed without the use of the keychain transmitter. This is necessary, since you will need the ability to operate your vehicle if the
transmitter is lost or its battery fails. If your system has been selected for Valet
Switch manual override as indicated on the last page of this manual, to bypass
the alarm system;
1. Open the vehicle door. The alarm will sound.
2. Turn the ignition key to the on position.
3. Within 5 seconds, press and release the push-button override switch.
The alarm system will stop sounding and enter the (bypassed) mode. You can
now start and operate the vehicle normally.
Typically this override mode is used only if the transmitter has become inoperative.
PROGRAMMING YOUR CUSTOM OVERRIDE CODE
Unlike override switches easily found, and defeated, this security system allows
the consumer to program a personal override code, offering a higher level of
security. To take advantage of this option, programmable feature # 10 must be
selected for the Custom Code Option. Consult your installation center for programming details. The system comes from the factory with a pre-programmed
override code of 11. To change this default override code, do the following:
1. Disarm the system by use of the transmitter, or by use of the emergency
override sequence. Turn the ignition switch to the on position.
Page 7
128-8774b
7 of 24
2. Within 10 seconds, press and release the Receivers push-button switch, 3
times.
3. Within 10 seconds turn the ignition switch off, on, off, on, off, on.
(The siren or horn will beep and the lights will flash one time.)
4. Within 10 seconds, begin to enter your chosen 10ths digit by pressing and
releasing the Receivers push-button switch from 1 up to 9 times.
5. Within 10 seconds of the last entered 10ths digit, turn the ignition switch off
then on.
6. Within 10 seconds, begin to enter your chosen units digit by pressing and
releasing the Receivers push-button switch from 1 up to 9 times.
7. Finish by turning the ignition switch to the off position.
If the new code was accepted, the unit will report back the newly entered code, by
flashing the LED, first indicating the 10ths digit, pause and then the units digit.
The unit will report the new code three times with a one second pause between
each code, then the system will begin arming. If the LED flash pattern reports the
previously stored code, the new code was not entered correctly. Please repeat
steps 1 through 7 above considering the following.
NOTE: Acceptable digits 10ths or units are 1 through 9. The unit will not recognize a 0 (Zero), or no digit entered in any place, units or tenths.
NOTE: If 15 seconds of inactivity expire, or if the ignition switch is turned off for
more then 5 seconds during any of the above steps, the unit will revert
back to the last successfully stored code.
CUSTOM CODE PROGRAMMING EXAMPLE
To change the code from the factory pre-assigned code of 11 to “52” you would do
the following:
1. Disarm the system by use of the transmitter, or by use of the emergency
override sequence.
2. Turn the ignition switch to the on position.
3. Within 10 seconds, press and release the Receivers push-button switch, 3
times.
4. Within 10 seconds turn the ignition switch off, on, off, on, off, on.
(The siren or horn will beep and the lights will flash one time.)
5. Within 10 seconds, begin to press and release the Receivers push-button
switch to set the tenths digit. (As per the example, press and release 5 times
to set the tenths digit to 5)
6. Within 10 seconds of the last press of the pushbutton, turn the ignition switch off
then on.
7. Within 10 seconds, begin to press and release the Receivers Push-button
switch to set the units digit.
(As per the example, press and release 2 times to set the units digit to 2).
8. Turn the ignition switch to the off position. Immediately observe the LED flash
pattern.
You will note the LED flashing five times, pause, and then flash two times, pause. This
pattern will be repeated three times indicating the new code (52) has been accepted and
stored in memory.
NOTE: If after step 7, the LED flashes a code other than what was just entered,
this indicates that the code has not been changed. You will have to
repeat steps 1 through 7 above being certain to note the following:
Page 8
128-8774b
8 of 24
Acceptable digits 10ths or units are 1 through 9. The unit will not recognize a 0
(Zero), or no digit entered in any place, units or tenths.
NOTE: If 15 seconds of inactivity expire, or if the ignition switch is turned off for more then 5
seconds during any of the above steps, the unit will revert back to the last successfully
stored code.
MANUALLY OVERRIDING YOUR SYSTEM:
USING THE CUSTOM CODE OVERRIDE
Assuming the override code programmed has not been changed, and the default override
code of 11 is in the system's memory.
1) Enter the vehicle and turn the ignition switch to the on position.
NOTE: The siren will sound.
2) Within 5 seconds, press and release the Receivers push-button switch 1 time.
3) Within 5 seconds, turn the ignition switch off then on.
4) Within 5 seconds, press and release the Receivers push-button switch 1 time.
5) Turn the ignition switch off then on and start the vehicle.
NOTE: If you have changed the programmed override code then substitute your new code
tenths for step 2 above, and units for step 5 above.
ELIMINATING THE NORMAL ARM/DISARM CHIRPS
You can selectively eliminate the normal arm & disarm chirps by holding the
transmitter button slightly longer when arming or disarming. This will prevent the
siren chirps for one arm or disarm cycle. If you find this inconvenient and wish to
eliminate these chirps permanently,
1. Turn the ignition switch 'on" then 'off".
2. Within 10 seconds of turning off the ignition, press and release the Receivers
push-button switch 3 times.
3. If the chirps were on before you started, the siren will emit 2 short chirps
indicating that the chirps are now off. If the chirps were off before you started,
the siren will emit one short chirp indicating that the chirps are now on.
NOTE: If the vehicle battery is disconnected then reconnected, the unit will re
turn to the default setting of chirps on. Repeat the above procedure to
eliminate the arm/disarm chirps.
NOTE: Your system must be programmed by the installation center to enable this feature.
NOTE: Whenever the chirps are bypassed, the 4-chirp intrusion indicator
and 3 chirp defective zone indicator will always operate. Since these are
important warnings to you that something has happened, they cannot be
eliminated.
NOTE: Your system must be programmed by the installation center to enable this feature.
REMOTE PANIC OPERATION
The Lock or Unlock button on your keychain transmitter also functions as a panic
switch for use in emergency situations. To use remote panic,
1. Press and hold the Lock or Unlock button on the keychain transmitter for 3 or
more seconds. The alarm will immediately sound.
Page 9
128-8774b
9 of 24
2. To stop the alarm, press and hold the Lock or Unlock button on the transmitter
again for 3 seconds. If the button is not pressed, the alarm will automatically
stop after 30 seconds. Also if any transmitter button other than the Lock or
Unlock button is pressed and released, the Panic mode will be turned off
immediately. The normal function of this transmitter button will be suspended
during the Panic sounding period.
3. During the panic mode, the Lock and Unlock buttons can be used to lock and
unlock the doors, (if the option is installed), however once the unlock/disarm
button is pressed, the vehicle's starter inhibit device, (where installed) will be
disabled allowing the vehicle to start.
NOTE: While in the Panic mode, pressing and releasing the Lock or Unlock buttons will, if the option is installed, lock and unlock the doors respectively.
While in the panic mode, anytime the Unlock button is pressed, the panic feature
will continue for the allotted 30 seconds, however, the security system will be
disarmed allowing the vehicle to start.
RF SHOCK SENSOR MODE SELECTION
The way in which your alarm system reacts to threatening vibrations, created by
attempts to enter the vehicle by breaking a window, is adjustable by the transmitter
immediately after arming. There are 4 modes of operation that can be selected
by the operator:
1. Normal Operation (default mode)
In this mode, any strong vibrations will cause the siren to sound (full
detect) for 30 seconds. Any lesser vibration will cause the siren to emit
about 6 short warn away chirps, (pre-detect).
2. Stage 1 (Omit pre-detect)
In this mode, the warn away chirps created by the lesser vibration will be
deleted. If strong vibration occurs, the siren will sound.
3. Stage 2 (Omit pre & full detect)
In this mode, both the pre-detect stage and the full trigger stage of the sensor
are defeated. The unit will not react to vibration of any magnitude.
NOTE: Shock Sensor Icon Is Displayed On The LCD Panel.
4. Stage 3 (City Mode)
In this mode, the pre-detect chirps will change from six pre-warning tones to
a full 10 seconds of warning chirps.
The full detect trigger duration will be reduced from 30 seconds to 15 seconds.
NOTE: Setting the stage of the shock sensor will be effective for one arming
cycle only. Once the system has been disarmed, the very next arming
cycle will cause the sensor to default to the normal operation stage.
To change or adjust the shock sensor, press and release the ARM button of you
keychain transmitter.
1. Within 2 seconds of arming, press and release the ARM button 1 time, to
defeat the pre-detect stage of the shock sensor. (The lights will flash and the
siren will chirp once.)
Page 10
128-8774b
10 of 24
2. Within 2 seconds of step 1, press and release the ARM button 2 times, to
defeat the pre and full detect stages of the shock sensor. (The lights will
flash and the siren will chirp twice.)
3. Within 2 seconds of step 1, press and release the ARM button 3 times to
enter the "City Mode" of operation. (The lights will flash and the siren will chirp
three times.)
While under control of the remote start the system can be programmed to allow
you to shunt the shock sensor from the transmitter. If the system has been such
programmed, simply press the lock button of your keychain transmitter anytime
during the remote start cycle. The shock sensor will be shunted for the entire run
cycle and will resume normal operation after the remote start unit shuts off.
Check with your installation center to determine if this feature has been programmed into your system.
PUSH-BUTTON LED RECEIVER SAFETY CONTROL SWITCH
The Push-Button LED control switch allows you to temporarily disable the remote
starting function of the system. This recommended whenever the vehicle is being
serviced. To place the system in the service mode:
1) With the system disarmed/unlocked, and the ignition switch off Press and
Hold the Push-Button, found on the windsheild receiver, in.
2) Turn the ignition switch on, off, on, off, on, off.
3) The LED begins to flash two short flashes followed by one long flashes and
continues this pattern until returned to normal mode of operation.
This puts the unit into the R/S Override mode indicating that the remote start is
in the service mode and will not start from RF or any other input Posse or
otherwise.
To Exit R/S Override Mode
1) With the system disarmed, Press and Hold the Push-Button, found on the
windsheild receiver, in.
2) Turn the ignition switch on, off, on, off, on, off.
3) The LED turns off indicating that the R/S unit is fully functional one again.
REMOTE STARTING THE VEHICLE
The system WILL NOT start the vehicle if any one of the following conditions
exists:
1. The Vehicle Hood Is Opened.
2. The Gear Selector Is In Any Gear Other Then Park.
3. The Brake Is Depressed.
4. The Safety Control Switch Is In The Off Position.
