Features Available on your System
Relock doors
If you unlock the doors with the remote transmitter, but do not open any door or open trunk within 60 seconds,
the doors will automatically relock and the system will be armed.
Note: When the system is in active arming mode and the relock mode is enabled, the doors will relock but the
system will not rearm.
Panic Mode
In a panic situation, you can activate the panic mode that disables the valet mode, locks the doors and sounds
the siren for 1 minute. You can activate the panic mode by pressing the LOCK or the UNLOCK button for
approximately 4 seconds until the siren goes ON and the parking lights flash.
To activate panic mode:
•
Press and hold the UNLOCK button for approximately 3 sec. until the sound signal starts and the
parking lights flash: this will unlock the doors before the sound signal starts.
•
Press and hold the LOCK button for approximately 3 seconds until the sound signal starts and the
parking lights flash: this will lock the doors before the sound signal starts.
Or
•
Press and hold the FUNCTION button for approximately 3 sec. until the sound signal starts and the
parking lights flash: this will only activate the siren.
(For two-way LCD remote only)
Multi-car Operation
The system features multi-car operation. This allows the user to control two systems with one transmitter. (Both vehicles must
be equipped with identical systems). The transmitter of the primary vehicle can control the starter kill system, the door lock and
unlock operations of the second vehicle as well as the AUX 2 and AUX 3 outputs. The transmitter of the second vehicle can
also operate the primary vehicle

Temporary Chirp Delete
If you want to avoid the siren chirps in a quiet neighbourhood when arming or disarming the system, press the
TRUNK button until you see the parking lights flash. Then within 3 seconds, press the LOCK or UNLOCK to arm
or disarm the vehicle without generating the siren chirps.
Note:
Your installer could program the chirp disable feature, so that the chirps are disabled permanently.
User Guide
P. 5
Priority Door Access
(Enabled by default.) If the Remote Door Locks option is installed on your vehicle, this safety feature allows you
to unlock solely the driver’s door with a single press of the UNLOCK button on the transmitter; upon a second
press of the UNLOCK button, all the doors will unlock, except for the driver’s door and finally with a third press of
the UNLOCK button, all the doors will unlock.
Alarm Functions
(The siren and the shock detectors are optional)
Your installer can program your alarm in passive arming mode, so that the system automatically arms itself
when you leave your vehicle, or in active arming mode, so that you can arm or disarm your car at will.
In either mode, you can arm or disarm your alarm system using your remote control as well as lock or unlock
your doors.
Passive Arm Mode
In passive arming mode, the system will arm itself automatically after the completion of a 1 min arming delay
(LED flashes quickly) initiated after the last door of the vehicle is closed. Therefore, you do not need to arm the
system. The LED indicator flashes slowly when the system is armed. However, you must lock your doors
manually when leaving the vehicle.
When leaving your vehicle, perform the following:
1.
Turn the key switch off. The LED remains off.
2.
Unlock if required and open the doors.
3.
Once all doors are closed after exiting the vehicle, the LED will begin to flash quickly, indicating that
passive arming delay has begun.
Also, as long as a door, trunk or hood is open before the completion of the arming delay, the system will not
rearm. If you want to stay in the vehicle for a certain period of time, it is recommended to have your key switch
in the ON position to avoid a situation where the system arms before somebody leaves the vehicle. While your
key is in the ON position, the system will not arm and the LED stays off.
Active Arm Mode
To arm the system, and lock your doors (if you have this option), the ignition must go from ON to OFF and a
door has to be opened and then closed. Press the LOCK button on your remote until the siren chirps once in
confirmation. Notice that the parking lights confirm the system arming by flashing once and that the LED
indicator flashes slowly to confirm the armed state. (See “Chirp delete” on p.5 to bypass the chirping effect).
Disarming and Unlocking Doors
If the system was programmed in passive mode, to disarm the system and unlock the doors, press and hold the
UNLOCK button until the siren chirps twice in confirmation. Notice also that the parking lights confirm the system
disarming by flashing twice. Once the system is disarmed, you have to open a door within a 35-second delay or
else the system will rearm (LED flashing slowly). If the entry delay expires, you must disarm the vehicle by
pressing the UNLOCK button to enter the vehicle. Once inside the vehicle, you have up to 35 seconds to turn
the key switch to the ON position or start the car to prevent the system from rearming again. If this is not done,
your system will rearm (LED flashing slowly) and if your system has a starter kill, you will not be able to start the
car. If this situation occurs, you need to disarm the car by pressing the UNLOCK button.
Starter Disable
Among the many features, the starter disable circuit will immobilize the vehicle when the system is armed (If
installed). The system, when armed, will control a relay that will physically interrupt the vehicle starter wire and
prevent the hot-wiring of your vehicle. The system is selectable, passive or active arming; this means that you
can have the unit arm itself (passive) after a pre-programmed period of time 1 minute or you can have control
over the system (active) such that it will never arm itself.
Note: When the system is armed, the vehicle will not start with the key unless the system has been
disarmed.
To Arm the Starter Disable
• Lock the doors by remote or wait the timeout period in passive arm mode. The system is armed
automatically when the doors are locked by remote.
To Disarm the Starter Disable
• Unlock the doors by remote or place the unit into valet mode.

Retain Accessory Output
Retain Accessory output is activated as soon as key is turned to the ON position. When the key goes from ON
to OFF position, the accessory output stays ON and a countdown period of 10 minutes is set. The output is
turned OFF after 10 minutes or if a door is opened anytime during the countdown period.
Note: The Accessory Output is also turned off while starting the car.
System L.E.D. Flash Rate
The L.E.D will display the status of the system, to indicate if the starter kill is armed or disarmed. The L.E.D will
also indicate if the system is in valet mode or not (See “Valet operation” on p. 5)
The following are L.E.D conditions:
