Important information
Congratulations on the purchase of your keyless entry system.
Due to the complexity of this system, it must be installed by an authorized dealer only. Installation
of this product by anyone other than an authorized dealer voids the warranty.
By carefully reading this Owner's Guide prior to using your system, you will maximize the use of
this system and its features.
You can print additional or replacement copies of this manual by accessing the Astroflex
Electronics web site at www.astroflex.com.
SYSTEM MAINTENANCE
The system requires no specific maintenance. Your remote is powered by a small, lightweight 3volt lithium battery that will last approximately one year under normal use. When the battery
begins to weaken, operating range will be reduced and the LED on the remote will dim.
FCC/ID NOTICE
This device complies with Part 15 of FCC rules. Operation is subject to the
following conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2)
This device must accept any interference received, including interference that
may cause undesirable operation.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for
compliance could void the user's authority to operate this device.

Transmitter functions
The receiver uses a computer-based learn routine to learn the transmitter buttons. This makes it
possible to assign any specific transmitter button, or combination of buttons, to any receiver
function. The transmitter initially comes programmed with the Standard Configuration, but may
also be customized by an authorized dealer. The transmitter buttons indicated in all of the
instructions in this manual correspond to a Standard Configuration transmitter.

LOCKING
Pressing
for one second activates the starter kill (optional) and locks the doors (if connected).
The horn will honk (if connected) and the parking lights will flash once. While the starter kill is
enabled, the status LED will flash once per second. The Failsafe® Starter Kill (if installed) will
prevent the vehicle’s starter from cranking.
Note: Manually locking the vehicle does not activates
the Failsafe® system, it will only lock the doors.
The system can also be programmed to activate the optional Failsafe® Starter Kill automatically
(called AED for Automatic Engine Disable). If the system has been programmed for AED enabled,
the Failsafe® Starter Kill will automatically activate 30 seconds after the ignition has been turned

off. After the ignition has been turned off, the status LED flashes slowly to indicate that the AED
will be activated then, the LED flashes normally when AED has been activated.
Note: For AED to be effective, the Failsafe®
Starter Kill relay must be installed.
UNLOCKING
Pressing
for one second unlocks the doors (if connected). The horn will honk twice (if
connected) and the parking lights will flash twice to confirm reception of the command. The
optional Failsafe® Starter Kill will be deactivated. The status LED will turn off.
Note: If the doors were locked with the remote transmitter, you
must use the transmitter or the Valet switch to deactivate the starter
kill. Manually unlocking the vehicle will only unlock the doors.
DISABLING THE AED WITHOUT A TRANSMITTER
If your remote transmitter is lost or damaged, you can manually override the AED. To do this, you
must have the vehicle's ignition key and know where the Valet® switch is located. Be sure to check
with the installer for the location of the Valet® switch.
To disable the AED, turn the ignition to the ON position.
Press and release the Valet switch within 10 seconds. The
status LED will stop flashing and the vehicle should start.
If the vehicle does not start, you may have waited too long;
turn the ignition off and repeat the process.
Location of Valet Button____________________________________________________
SILENT MODE
To temporarily turn OFF the horn honk(s) confirmations, simply press
for less than one second
before transmitting any commands, the confirmation honk(s) will not be present for that one
operation only.
VALET MODE
You can prevent your system from automatically activating the Failsafe® Starter Kill (optional, not
included) by using Valet® Mode. This is very useful when washing the vehicle or having it serviced.
In Valet® Mode, the starter kill cannot be activated, even with the transmitter, but all convenience
functions (door locks, trunk release, etc.) will continue to work normally.

To enter or exit Valet® Mode:
1. Turn the ignition on.
2. Turn the ignition off.
3. Press and release the Valet® switch within 10 seconds.
The status LED will light steadily if you are entering
Valet® Mode and will turn off if you are exiting Valet®
Mode.
PANIC MODE
If you are threatened in or near your vehicle, you can attract attention by triggering the system
with your transmitter.
Just press
or
for more then five seconds to enter Panic Mode. In Panic Mode, the horn
(if connected) will honk and the parking lights will flash for 30 seconds. To stop Panic Mode at
any time, press
or
for 1 second on the transmitter again.
Note: In order for Panic Mode to be effective, the vehicle’s horn (or
optional siren) as well as the vehicle's parking lights must be connected.
Rapid resume logic
The system will store its current state to non-volatile memory. If power is lost and then
reconnected, the system will recall the stored state from memory. This means if the unit is in Valet
Mode and the battery is disconnected for any reason, such as servicing the car, when the battery
is reconnected the unit will still be in Valet Mode. This applies to all states of the system including
panic mode.
Programming options
Programming options control your system's normal, operational set-up. Most options do not
require additional parts, but some may require additional installation labour. This system's
programming options are listed below, with the factory default settings in bold:
Ignition switch-controlled door-locking on or off. With this feature on, the doors will lock 3
seconds after the ignition key is turned on, and unlock when the ignition key is turned off.
Comfort Closure off or on. This option is not available for all vehicles. When programmed on,
and pressing
on the remote, the vehicle will lock and close the windows/sunroof.
See your dealer to see if this is available for your vehicle.

Dome light Supervision Activated or Deactivated: The dome light will illuminate for
30-seconds after turning the ignition off or when disarming the system with the remote
transmitter.
Glossary of terms
Control Unit: The “brain” of your system. Usually hidden under the dash area of the vehicle. It
houses the microprocessor that monitors your vehicle and controls all system functions.
LED: A light mounted at a discretionary location inside the vehicle. It is used to indicate the status
of your system.
Starter Interrupt: An automatic switch controlled by your system which prevents the vehicle’s
starter from cranking whenever the system is armed. The vehicle is never prevented from cranking
when the system is disarmed, in Valet Mode, or if the starter interrupt switch itself fails. Your
system has feature-ready circuitry for the starter interrupt, however installation may require
additional labour.
Transmitter: A hand-held, remote control which operates the various functions of your system.
Valet Switch: A small button mounted at a discretionary location inside the vehicle. It is used to
override the system when a transmitter is lost or damaged, or to enter or exit Valet® Mode.
Convenience expansions
Listed below are some of the many expansion options available for use with your system. Some
options may require additional parts and/or labour. Please consult with your dealer for a
complete list of options available for use with this system.
Dome light Supervision: The dome light will illuminate for 30 seconds each time the system is
unlocked using the remote. This is useful for seeing inside the vehicle at night prior to entering it.
Power Door Lock Control: Your system is capable of controlling many types of power door lock
systems; however, some door lock systems may require extra parts. Consult with your dealer to
determine which type of locks your vehicle uses. The system can be programmed to lock the
doors when the ignition is turned on and to unlock them when the ignition is turned off.
Power Trunk Release: The system’s auxiliary output can be programmed to operate a factory
power release for the vehicle's trunk or hatch.
Progressive Door Unlocking: For added security, your system can be configured to unlock the
driver’s door only, leaving the passenger doors locked. Pressing the unlock button an additional
time will unlock the passenger doors. This option requires additional parts and labour.
