Features Available on your System
Relock doors
If you unlock the doors with the remote transmitter, but do not open any door or the trunk within 30
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, sounds the siren for 1 minute.
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 auxiliary button for 3 sec. until the sound signal starts and the parking
lights flash. Note: This will only work if auxiliary button is configured as Panic.
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 and hear 1 beep. 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.
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. 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.
When an intrusion from the door, hood, trunk, shock or ignition is detected, the 2-way LCD remote
will send beeps or vibrate for about 60 seconds. At the same time, the LCD remote will display

“ALARM”, “Time” (the moment the Alarm was triggered) and “DOOR/HOOD/TRUNK/SHOCK”

The user can press the LOCK or UNLOCK button to stop the alarm (unless DUAL-STAGE Mode has

disarm the system).
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 will stay off.
For the two-way LCD remote, once the system is armed automatically, the “LOCK” will be displayed
for 1 minute, and the
icon will be on the LCD screen.
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, or that the
I icon is on the LCD screen (for the 2-way remote).
User Guide
P. 9
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 starting 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, 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 time-out 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 the 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.
The following are L.E.D conditions:
