WARNING
It is the responsibility of the vehicle operator to ensure their vehicle
is parked in a safe and responsible manner.
1. a) Manual transmission: When leaving the vehicle, it is the user’s
responsibility to ensure that the gearshift lever is in the NEUTRAL
position and the parking brake is engaged in order to avoid accidents
upon remote starting.
b) Automatic transmission: When leaving the vehicle, it is the user’s
responsibility to ensure that the gearshift lever is in “Park” in order to
avoid accidents upon remote starting.
(Note: Make sure that the automatic vehicle cannot start in "Drive".)
2. It is the user's responsibility to ensure that the remote starter is disabled
or put into valet mode before servicing.
A note concerning the battery inside the transmitter:
Depending on your usage of the transmitter, the battery can last anywhere between 3 to 6 months.
When the battery is low, the transmitter will produce two beeps in a repetitive cycle. At that point
you should replace your battery with a new one. That is why we recommend that you keep a
spare battery somewhere handy such as the glove compartment.

Introduction
This is a state-of-the-art remote starter system. The system is packed with advanced features such
as priority access to the driver’s door (commodity features) and the safe start children safety
feature. With many an advanced function, this product will satisfy any one of your expectations
from high-end commodity and security systems, without neglecting any standard feature commonly
offered by entry-level starters.
Vehicle Presets
Heater & Heated Seat
When leaving the vehicle it is recommended to preset the accessory controls in preparation for the
next remote start. Settings for the blower motor (fan), front and rear, as well as heated seats (if
equipped) should not be left on HIGH. It is recommended to leave the settings on LOW or MEDIUM
instead.
Windshield Wipers, Radio & Headlights
Certain vehicles require the radio and / or windshield wiper and / or headlight circuits to become
energized while running under remote start. When leaving the vehicle you must ensure that the
windshield wiper and headlight switches are OFF. Leaving the headlight switch ON on certain types
of vehicles could cause them to remain ON even after remote starter shut down, resulting in a dead
battery.

Remote-Starting Your Vehicle
If your vehicle has an automatic transmission, simply press the START/STOP button to remote
start or stop your vehicle. Skip the next steps on to “Remote-starting”.
Warning: If you vehicle has an automatic transmission and the parking lights flash 15 times after
pressing the START/STOP button, the parking brake is connected to ground. It is imperative that
you see your installer and have him disconnect the wire.
Setting Your Vehicle Into Ready Mode
If your vehicle has a manual transmission you must read the following indications. In order to
start the vehicle by remote, the unit must first be set to Ready Mode. If the unit is not set to Ready
Mode, it cannot remote start the vehicle.
Please note that Ready Mode can be enabled by the remote or the handbrake, depending on
the option that was selected by your installer. Therefore, you must follow the appropriate
procedure between the two described below in order to set your vehicle into Ready Mode.
Once the system is set to Ready Mode, the vehicle can be remote started and stopped at any time.
The system will exit Ready Mode if a door, the hood or the trunk is opened, if the brake pedal is
pressed, if the parking brake is disengaged or if the ignition key is turned to the IGNITION ON (RUN)
position.
To set the system to Ready Mode:
1.
If Ready Mode is enabled by remote
If Ready Mode is enabled by handbrake
Ensure that all the doors, hood and trunk are closed. Make sure that the gear selector is in the
neutral position.
2.
With the engine already running, apply the
parking brake once and release the brake
pedal.
Make sure to release the brake pedal.
3.
Within 20 sec. of engaging the parking
brake, press and hold LOCK, UNLOCK or
START/STOP on the transmitter.
The parking lights will flash 3 times
quickly and remain lit.
4.
2.
With the engine already running, apply the
parking brake twice and release the brake
pedal.
Make sure to release the brake pedal.
The parking lights will flash 3 times

Extended Run Time
While the vehicle is running under a remote start, pressing and holding the
button for more
than 3 seconds will reset the run time counter to zero and restart the run time cycle from the
beginning. There will be one beep a pause three more beeps; the parking lights will flash
three times and the horn (if configured) will honk once. The extended run time procedure can
only be carried out once per remote start.
To stop the vehicle, at any moment, simply press the button.
Example: If your remote car starter is programmed for a run time of 3 minutes and your vehicle
has been running for 2 minutes already, pressing the
button will reset the counter
to zero and allow the engine to run for another cycle (in this case, 3 minutes).
Advanced Features: Installation-programmable Options
The remote starter was designed with flexibility and OEM integration in mind. With its programmable options, this unit can single-handedly control nearly any electrical system in your vehicle.
Caution: The programming of your system should be left to a professional. Changing any
one of the settings may affect the operation of your remote starter.
OEM Alarm
The factory alarm can be armed by pressing
button (active arming only). If a door or hood is
open or if the key is turned to the IGNITION ON (RUN) position, the horn will honk.
Remote Door Locks
If your remote starter was installed with the remote door locks option, you will have the
convenience of remote keyless entry. See section Arming the Starter Kill, on page 8, for further
instructions on remote door locking and unlocking.
Priority Door Access
If the remote door locks option is installed on your vehicle, this safety feature allows you unlock
solely the driver’s door with a single press of the
press of the
button on the transmitter; upon a second
button, all the other doors will unlock.
Ignition-Controlled Door Locks
This is an added security feature. If your remote starter was installed with the ignition-controlled
door locks option, the doors will automatically be locked as soon as the ignition key is turned to the
IGNITION ON (RUN) position while the brakes are pressed. When the key is turned to the OFF position,
the doors will automatically be unlocked.
Ignition Re-lock
On remote starters of this series, when ignition-controlled door locks are enabled and the ignition
key is in the IGNITION ON (RUN) position, should any door be unlocked and opened, all doors will be
relocked next time the brake pedal is pressed.
Secure Lock
Before it can remote-start your vehicle, the remote starter must first disarm the factory security
system. The secure lock feature may be required on certain vehicle models with factory security
systems that automatically unlock the doors when the security system is disarmed. To keep your
vehicle protected when the factory security system is disarmed for a remote start, secure lock will
relock your doors as soon as the vehicle has started. Once the engine run cycle ends, secure lock
will rearm your factory security system.

Troubleshooting Transmitting Range
Many factors may affect the operating range of the transmitter. Some of these are:
• The condition of the battery in the transmitter.
• The operating environment (for example: downtown radio-frequency noise, airports, cellular
phone towers…)
• Metal: any type of metal will affect operating range. This includes the metal in the car.
• The shape of the vehicle can affect range as well; vans in general have an especially poor
range.
• The shape of the roof and A-pillars brings about considerable radio-frequency deflection (in this
case the signal from the remote control). As a result, the direction in which the vehicle is facing
in relation to the remote control can affect the range. Straight on – standing in front of the
vehicle – generally gives you the greatest range; the second best performance is from the back.
Using the remote control from either side of the vehicle will usually give the lowest range.
• The range will be significantly lower in a crowded parking lot than in open space.
• Always hold the transmitter high, approximately at shoulder height. Holding the transmitter
against your chin will also increase your range: your head acts as an antenna.
• The operating range will be somewhat lower on vehicles equipped with an aftermarket or factory
alarm.
Intrusion Codes through Chirps
If there has been an intrusion in the vehicle while it was locked and armed, the OEM alarm will
provide in intrusion code matching the type of intrusion that took place. Disarm the alarm (UNLOCK)
