AviStart 3001 Owner's Manual
AviStart 3001
Congratulations! You have just purchased the AviStart 3001, a remote engine
starter system manufactured by Avital Technologies, Inc. You are about to
experience the convenience and luxury of being able to start your vehicle
engine from the comfort of your home, office, department store or other
remote location.
To fully benefit from the capabilities of your AviStart system, we encourage
you to read the Owner"s Manual thoroughly before using the system. If you
have any problems or questions regarding your AviStart system, consult the
dealer from whom you purchased this product.
Lifetime Warranty
Avital guarantees the operation of your AviStart control unit and remote
control for as long as you own your car. (Please refer to the back of this
manual for complete terms and conditions.)
Remote Controls
Included with your AviStart system is one 4-button/9-channel remote control.
The remote control (remote) is a miniature transmitter powered by a small
+12 volt battery. The RangeMaster™ super-heterodyne receiver (installed in
your vehicle) allows your remote to command your system from up to ¼ mile
away. Obstructions, electrical or radio interference, weather conditions,
window tint or a weak battery can reduce this range. Your remote is the
key to your AviStart system and can be used to lock and unlock your doors
and start and stop your engine.
The AviStart system can accept up to four Avital remote controls. Additional
remote controls and remote control batteries can be purchased from any
authorized Avital dealer. To locate an authorized dealer, or for other product
information, visit Avital's web site atwww.avital.com.
Stealth Coding Technology
Stealth Coding technology offers the most advanced protection available
against "code-grabbing" devices which thieves may use to record the digital
code transmitted by your remote control. When you leave the area, thieves
can then play back the code to start or stop your system. Avital"s remote
controls with Stealth Coding randomly change the code every time you use
them, and your system will not respond if any code is retransmitted. This
technology makes code-grabbing devices useless.

AviStart 3001 Owner's Manual
Electronic Scan Prevention (ESP)
Your AviStart system also includes ESP, which blocks electronic scanner codes
preventing unauthorized operation of your system.
Instant Remote Control Code Deletion
In the event of a lost or stolen remote control, all remote controls can be
erased from the system memory preventing unauthorized system operation.
(See the "Programming Table for Remote Controls" on page 9).
One-Step Remote Control Code Learning
The AviStart system allows you to add new remote controls in one step. (See
the "Programming Table for Remote Controls" on page 9).
Valet Switch
The valet switch is a small hidden toggle switch which allows you to control all
of the system programmable features. (See "User-Programmable Features" on
page 9). This switch can only be controlled with the use of your ignition key.
NOTE: Be sure to have your dealer show you where the valet switch is located.
