ARMING THE SYSTEM (CHANNEL 1): ACTIVE
1. Turn off the engine, exit the vehicle, and close and lock all doors, hood, and trunk.
2. Press and release the ARMING button on the keychain transmitter. The siren will "chirp"
once, the vehicle's parking lights will flash once, the doors will lock (optional), and the
dash mounted LED will begin to slowly flash.
WARNING ! Excessive pressure on the transmitter button will damage the internal
components on the circuit board. All that is required is a light push to the button.
NOTE: If the siren "chirped" three times when ARMING, then one of the entry points (hood,
trunk, doors) has been left opened. Closing the Hood, trunk, or door will correct the
problem, and you DO NOT have to disarm the system to make the correction.
ARMING THE SYSTEM (CHANNEL 1) : PASSIVE
1. Turn off the engine, exit the vehicle, close and lock all doors, hood and trunk.
2. The dash mounted LED will begin flashing rapidly, indicating that the system is automatically (passive) arming. As an added convenience, the automatic passive arming will not
begin until all doors and trunk lid are closed, allowing passengers to exit the vehicle at
their convenience.
3. In 30 seconds, you will hear a single, short "chirp" from the siren, and the vehicle's parking
lamps will flash one time, indicating the system is ARMED. At this time, the dash mounted
LED will begin to flash slowly, providing a visual indication that the system is fully ARMED.
3a. If the optional door lock interface has been installed, the doors WILL NOT automatically
lock when the 30 second arming time expires.
4. If you wish to ARM the system immediately, simply press and release the button on the
keychain transmitter. The siren will "chirp" once, the doors will lock (optional), and the
dash mounted LED will begin to slowly flash.
PROTECTION WHILE THE SYSTEM IS ARMED:
1. Opening any door, hood, or trunk will cause the alarm to immediately sound. The siren
will continue to sound for 30 seconds, then stop and automatically re-arm the vehicle.
If the potential thief left a door opened, the siren will sound for six 30 second cycles, then
re-arm and ignore the opened door.
2. Any strong vibration such that would be created by breaking a window or damage
caused by a vehicle hitting your's will cause the alarm's shock sensor to trigger the
system. The siren will continue to sound for 30 seconds.
3. Whenever the system is armed, the Red 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.
4. If the starter cut relay (optional) is installed, whenever the system is armed, the vehicle’s
starter will be bypassed. If a thief should choose to ignore the siren, the vehicle can not
be started.
5. Whenever the system is triggered, the vehicle's parking lights will flash for the 30 second
alarm cycle, attracting added visual attention to the vehicle.

DISARMING THE SYSTEM (CHANNEL 1):
1. As you approach the vehicle, press and release the button on the key chain transmitter.
WARNING! Excessive pressure on the transmitter buttons will damage the internal
components on the circuit board. All that is required is a light push to the button.
2. The siren will “chirp” 2 times and the vehicle's parking lamps will flash two times.
a) If the door lock interface (optional) is installed, the vehicle’s doors will automatically
unlock.
3A. ACTIVE: The dash mounted LED will turn off, and remain off until the system is armed.
3B. PASSIVE : Never attempt to disarm the system from a distance that prevents you from
opening a door within 30 seconds. Since the system is programmed for passive arming,
it will begin to re-arm until a door is opened. Opening the door will suspend the passive
arming cycle.
INTRUSION WARNING SIGNALS:
The 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 when disarming
the system. Enter the vehicle and observe the dash mounted LED for further information.
1. If the LED is flashing one time...pause... one time...etc., then an intrusion attempt was
made to a light activated entry point, or the plug in shock sensor was activated.
2. If the LED is flashing two times...pause...two times...etc., then an intrusion attempt
was made to the hood, trunk, or any optional sensors that were added to the vehicle.
3. If the LED is flashing three times...pause...three times...etc., then an intrusion attempt
was made through one of the vehicles doors.
These intrusion warning indicators are stored in the system’s memory, and will only be erased
from memory when the ignition key is turned on.
VALET / SYSTEM OVERRIDE SWITCH:
The “Valet” switch 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
the valet mode, all alarm functions are bypassed, however, the remote panic feature and
remote door locks (optional) will remain operational. To use the valet mode;
1. Enter the vehicle and turn the ignition key to the “on” position.
2. Move the valet toggle switch to the “on” position. The dash mounted LED will turn on solid,
and remain on as long as the system is in the valet mode.
3. To return to normal operation, move the valet switch to the “off” position any time the ignition
is on.
In the event you lose your transmitter, or if the transmitter fails to disarm the system, the valet
switch can be used as a system override switch. Open the car door (the alarm WILL sound).
Turn the ignition key on, and move the valet switch to the “on” position. The alarm will stop
sounding, and the vehicle can now be started.
NOTE: Always remember to move the Valet Switch back to the ”off” position. This will ensure
that the vehicle remains protected at all times.

ELIMINATING THE ARM / DISARM CHIRPS:
The normal arming and disarming confirmation "chirps" can easily be turned on and off using
the valet toggle switch. To do this...
1. The valet switch must be in "off" position.
2. Turn the ignition key on, and then off.
3. Within 10 seconds of turning the ignition key off, move the valet toggle switch to the
on-off-on-off-on-then off position.
4a. If, before proceeding with step 1, the chirps were on, then you will hear 2 chirps to
indicate that the chirps have been turned off.
4b. If, before proceeding with step 1, the chirps were off, then you will hear 1 chirp to indicate
that the chirps have been turned on.
5. Whenever power to the system is disconnected (for repair or service of the vehicle),
the chirps will be active when power is re-connected. To turn the chirps off, simply
execute 1-3 above.
Note: Whenever the chirps are by-passed, the 3 chirp defect and 4 chirp intrusion indicator
will always operate. This feature will always warn you if there is a defective sensor
during the arming sequence or if the vehicle had been tampered with in your absence,
even if the normal arming and disarming chirps have been turn off.
REMOTE PANIC OPERATION (CHANNEL 1):
The arming button on your key chain transmitter also functions as a “panic” switch for instant
activation of the alarm in emergency situations. To use the remote panic switch;
1. Press and hold the button on the key chain transmitter for 3 seconds or more. The alarm
will immediately sound.
2. To stop the alarm, press and release the button on the key chain transmitter. If the button
is not pressed, the alarm will automatically stop after 30 seconds.
WARNING: Excessive pressure on the transmitter buttons will damage the internal
components on the circuit board. All that is required is a light push to the button.
TRUNK RELEASE (CHANNEL 2) :
This security system has an additional feature that can be wired to a number of different
optional accessories. Some of the more common uses for this "channel" are:
Remote Trunk Release - available for any vehicle with factory installed electronic push-button
trunk release.
Remote Car Starter - available for most automatic transmission, fuel injected vehicles.
Remote Window Roll Up - available for most vehicles equipped with power windows.
To activate the optional accessory:
1. Press and hold the 2nd button on the keychain transmitter for approximately 3
seconds.
NOTE: This feature will not operate when the vehicle's ignition key is turned "ON".
