ARMING THE SYSTEM: (ACTIVE)
1. Turn off the engine, exit the vehicle, and close and lock all doors, hood, and trunk.
2. Press and release the Lock 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 buttons 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 Locked, then one of the entry points (hood, trunk,
doors) has been left opened. 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 "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.
ARMING THE SYSTEM: (PASSIVE)
1. Turn off the engine, exit the vehicle, close and lock all doors, hood, and trunk.
2. The dash mounted LED will begin to flash 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.
OPTION NOTE: If the optional (not included) power door lock interface has been
installed, the alarm control module can be programmed to...
a) Automatically lock the doors during step 3 above, or
b) Lock the doors only when the transmitter is operated
4. If you wish to arm the system immediately, simply press and release the ARMING button
on the keychain transmitter. The siren will "chirp" once, the vehicle's parking lamps will
flash 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 impact to the vehicle’s glass will cause the alarm to trigger for the full 30 second
alarm cycle, with "Dual Stage". Any mild impact to the vehicle's glass will cause the alarm
to sound a short series of warning tones.
3. 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.

4. 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.
5. 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.
DISARMING THE SYSTEM:
1. As you approach the vehicle, press and release the Unlock button on the keychain
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.
3A. ACTIVE: The dash mounted LED will turn off, and remain off until the system is re-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.
The vehicle's parking lights will also flash 3 times to indicate an intrusion has occurred. 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 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 an optional sensor that has been connected to zone 2.
3. If the LED is flashing three times...pause...three times...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
from memory when the ignition key is turned on.
Push-Button LED 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
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. Press and hold the LED valet push-button switch for 5 seconds until the LED turns
on solid. The LED will remain on as long as the system is in the valet mode.
3. To return to normal operation, with the ignition switch on, press and release the LED valet
push-button switch one time. The LED will turn off indicating the unit has been returned
to the normal mode of operation.
In the event you lose your keychain 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 press and hold the LED valet switch on. The
alarm will stop sounding, and the vehicle can now be started.
NOTE: Always remember to exit Valet Mode to 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 push-button switch. To do this...
1. Turn the ignition key on, and then off.
2. Within 10 seconds of turning the ignition key off, press and release the LED valet
push-button switch three times.
3a. If, before proceeding with step 2, the chirps were on, then you will hear 2 chirps to indicate
that the chirps have been turned off.
3b. If, before proceeding with step 2, the chirps were off, then you will hear 1 chirp to indicate
that the chirps have been turned on.
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:
The Lock & Unlock buttons on your keychain 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 arming button on the keychain transmitter for 3 seconds or more.
The alarm will immediately sound.
2. To stop the alarm, press and release the Trunk/Key button on the keychain 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:
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:
z Remote Trunk Release - available for any vehicle with factory installed electronic
push-button trunk release.
z Remote Car Starter - available for most automatic transmission, fuel injected vehicles.
z Remote Window Roll Up - available for most vehicles equipped with power windows.
To activate the optional accessory:
Press and hold the Trunk/Key button on the keychain transmitter for approximately
3 seconds. If the system has been programmed differently by your installation center,
this output may be accessed by pressing buttons 1&2 simultaneously for 3 seconds.
NOTE: This feature will not operate when the vehicle's ignition key is turned "ON".
