Remote Control — Each of the pair of remote controls is a miniature
radio transmitter powered by a +12 volt battery with a typical range of up
to 100 feet. Obstructions, radio interference, cellular transmissions or a
weak remote control battery may reduce the range or interrupt
transmission. (If the system does not immediately respond, release and
press the button again. This works better than holding the button down.)
The second remote can be used by a second driver, or kept as a spare.
Additional remote controls or batteries can be purchased from any
authorized Avital Dealer, or by calling Avital Technologies toll-free at
1-800-253-0334 (within the U.S.) or 1-847-215-2233.
To Arm The System — Your alarm system can be programmed for
active or passive arming. Active arming means the system can only be
armed with the remote control. Passive arming means the system will
automatically arm itself. See the "Programming Table for system
Features" on page 9.
n Active Arming. Press remote button #1 for 1-2 seconds. The siren
will chirp twice, the parking lights will flash twice, the doors will
lock, the LED will flash slowly and the starter will be disabled.
n Passive Arming. Turn the ignition key off, exit the vehicle and close
the doors. 30 seconds after the interior light turns off the siren will
chirp twice, the parking lights will flash twice, the LED will flash
slowly and the starter will be disabled (at any time during passive
arming, the system can be actively armed).
n
To Disarm the System — Press remote button #1 for 1-2 seconds.

to bypass (shut off) the alarm functions.

remote engine starter.
n
User-Programmable Passive Door Lock — The system will not
automatically lock the doors when the system passively arms to prevent
the keys and remote from accidentally being locked in the vehicle. If you

system Features" on page 9.
n
User-Programmable Ignition-Controlled Door Lock/Unlock
— For the ultimate in security and convenience, the system will

How to Interpret the Chirps and Parking Light Flashes 
When you press the remote control buttons, the system will respond with
chirps (unless you have the chirp muting feature turned on or the system
is in Valet Mode) and flashes of the parking lights to indicate the system
status. An explanation of these chirp/flash acknowledgments follows:

Instant Remote Control Code Deletion — In the event of a lost
or stolen remote control, all remote controls can be erased from the
system's memory to prevent unauthorized system operation. See the
"Programming Table for Remote Controls" on pages 10 and 11.
n
One-Step Remote Control Code Learning — The system can be
programmed to accept as many as four separate remote controls. See the
"Programming Table for Remote Controls" on pages 10 and 11.
n
Alarm State Memory — If your vehicle's battery is disconnected and
later reconnected, the system will automatically return to its last state
prior to disconnection, whether it was armed, disarmed or in Protected
Valet Mode. For example, if a mechanic disconnects the battery while
the system is disarmed or in Protected Valet Mode, he won’t trigger the
system when he reconnects the battery. If a thief interrrupts power while
the system is armed, and reconnects it, the system will instantly sound,
the parking lights will flash and the starter will be disabled.
