TRANSCEIVER / PAGER-REMOTE
PAGER / REMOTE TRANSCEIVER:
The hand-held remote transceiver is used to send and receive
information from the vehicle. The Control Module transmits High
Frequency FM signals from the vehicle to your over long
distances. Your range will vary depending on location, terrain,
and local RF noise/interference. This system is not guaranteed
to page you if you are behind concrete walls, underground, in a
large structure, or in an area with high levels of electronic
interference. Handle the pager/remote with care if the LCD
display and/or the electronics may be damaged if subjected to
abuse. The AAA Cell 1.5V alkaline battery can easily be
replaced by sliding open the battery access door on the back of
the remote. Battery life will vary depending on usage. The LCD
screen will display a low battery icon when the battery is low.

ANTI CARJACK PROTECTION
REMOTE OPERATED CARJACK PROTECTION
This feature provides Active Carjack protection through the remote control. When the Ignition is on (vehicle is
running), press and hold the #1 LOCK Button and #3 TRUNK Button for 2 seconds. The parking lights will
flash 2 times and the LED will begin to flash rapidly to confirm the beginning of a Carjack countdown. 30
Seconds later, the unit will begin a Carjack Cycle consisting of 20 seconds of pre-warning chirps turning into a
full system activation with siren / flashing light pulses for up to 5 min. If the Ignition is turned off during a
Carjack trigger the siren and lights stop but Carjack protection is still active. The Siren and Lights will resume
if the Carjacker tries to turn the Ignition back ON. TO RESET: Press Button #2 (UNLOCK) on the remote and
the siren will chirp once, or turn the key on and press and hold the override button for at least 5 seconds.
SWITCH-CONTROLLED & FULL TIME CARJACK (PINK WIRE CONFIGURATION)
This feature can provide Passive or Manual control Carjack protection depending on the configuration of the
Pink Carjack wire of the alarm system. The system must be programmed for the Pink wire to be used as a
Carjack trigger with programming option #8. Once programmed for the Pink wire for use as a Carjack trigger, it
can be configured in different ways to provide different levels of protection. It can be connected to a hidden
+12V toggle/momentary switch or to +12V Ignition Power. Read following sections for further descriptions.
HIDDEN SWITCH-CONTROLLED CARJACK:
This configuration will enable the vehicle owner to activate a Carjack countdown by pressing a hidden pushbutton (not included with kit) during a Carjack situation. A Carjack countdown will begin under the following
conditions: Ignition is ON (vehicle is running), the push-button is pressed, and the door opens/closes. Upon
these 3 events, in that order, the alarm will start a Carjack countdown. After a delay of one minute, the system
will begin chirping for 20 seconds then trigger into a full cycle for up to 5 minutes. To reset this Carjack mode,
Ignition must be ON then press and hold the override/valet button for 5 seconds (until LED goes out.)
FULL-TIME [Permanent] CARJACK:
We recommend that this configuration only be used if a serious threat of Carjack exists during everyday
situations. When the Ignition is on (vehicle is running), anytime a door is opened the Carjack countdown
sequence will be initiated. There will be 2 light flashes and the LED will change from solid to quick pulsing as
confirmation of a countdown sequence. To reset FULL TIME Carjack, the Ignition has to be ON, then press
and hold the override/program button 5 seconds until LED stops pulsing. The LED will be on SOLID when in
this mode anytime the Ignition is ON (or while driving) as a reminder that Carjack is waiting for a door to open.
14
LED DIAGNOSTICS
The CS-2016FM system includes disarm diagnostics, through the RED LED light, that will help in determining
what caused the last trigger of the alarm system. This is a valuable tool in determining how the vehicle was
tampered with or if there is a false alarm problem in which case you can make the necessary adjustments to
correct the problem. When the system is disarmed with the remote you will hear the normal 2 chirps, then 4
quick chirps that indicate the alarm was triggered while you were away. Check the LED light for a sequence
of flashes:
Shock Sensor = 1 Flash
Door = 2 Flashes
Hood/Trunk = 3 Flashes
Ignition = 4 Flashes
Diagnostics will reset when the Ignition is turned on or when the system is re-armed.
TRANSCEIVER / REMOTE CONTROL PROGRAMMING
Note: All transmitter codes must be learned at time of programming!! Up to 4 different transmitter
codes can be stored in the memory of the system.

2 VEHICLE OPERATION
2 VEHICLE CONTROL
Your CS-2016FM remotes have the ability to control a second vehicle with a Crimestopper CS-2016FM or
older CS-2015FM system installed. See diagram below on how to switch your remote(s) to vehicle #2
operation.
To set up the 2-Vehicle operation you
must first program your remotes to
Vehicle #2.
Follow the “Transmitter
Programming” steps (Pg. 13) at the
second vehicle and learn YOUR remote,
along with vehicle #2’s existing remotes.
2-VEHCLE OPERATION NOTES:
(1) You do not have to switch between
Vehicle I and II to get pages from each
vehicle. Your remote pager will receive
pages from both cars regardless of
which vehicle the pager is set to. The “I”
or “II” icon will always display with each
page indicate which vehicle the page
originated from.
(2) When programming CS-2016FM
systems, all remote/pagers and sidekick
remotes for that vehicle must be learned
at the time of programming. When you
program your remote at the second
vehicle, that vehicle’s original remote
must also be programmed. Your remote
should be set in Vehicle II and the
vehicle’s original remote should be set in
Vehicle I.

TROUBLESHOOTING FAQ’s: “BEFORE YOU CALL SECTION”
Before calling your dealer or Crimestopper, read the following section for tips that may remedy or
explain your problem.
RANGE QUESTIONS (2-Way Pager/Remote):
Your CS-2016FM system uses FM High-Frequency signals to send/receive data between the pager and the
vehicle and from the vehicle to the remote for state-of-the-art operation.
1) Under normal operation, the distance from the vehicle-paging-the-remote will be greater than that from the
remote-to-the-vehicle. This is due to power supplies. The main control module (brain) in the vehicle is
connected to the electrical wiring receiving power from the vehicle battery, whereas the remote/pager is
operating from the AAA 1.5V alkaline battery. This is a normal feature for an FM 2-Way paging system.
2) Your system is designed to always operate with maximum efficiency, however range may be affected by
the following circumstances: Physical Distance, Obstructions, and RF/Electronic Interference. (On
US/Domestic systems, power output is limited by FCC Regulations/Specifications.)
3) This CS-2016FM system does NOT use “Paging” or “Cellular” antenna service. There are no monthly fees
associated with its operation. The CS-2016FM unit in the vehicle sends a paging signal directly to your
pager/remote from its own antenna mounted inside the vehicle.
MY IN-DASH LED FLICKERS WHEN PRESSING REMOTE CONTROL BUTTONS:
This is normal operation. There may be a slight flicker visible from the LED when pressing the remote as the
system is authorizing/processing the code sent from the remote control. There is nothing wrong with your
system.
MY SYSTEM FLASHES THE LIGHTS ONCE AND WILL NOT ATTEMPT A REMOTE START (2 parts):
1) The system is possibly in valet mode. Check the status of the RED LED light. If it is on solid, then the unit
is in VALET MODE and will NOT remote start when in Valet mode. This is to protect the system from
unauthorized engine starting when your vehicle serviced or valet parked. TO EXIT VALET MODE: Turn
Ignition ON, and press the valet button for about 5 seconds until LED goes out. See the Valet part of the
operating instructions for more information.
2) The unit senses a possible wiring fault at the Brake or the Hood is OPEN (Blue wire grounded). This is a
safety feature of the unit. Check installation for faults and make sure hood is closed and verify brake input
connection. The LCD will also not confirm back a signal of a remote start request when this occurs.

TROUBLESHOOTING continued
WHEN ARMING AND DISARMING MY ALARM HAS IRREGULAR “LONG” SIREN CHIRPS:
This is an audible warning that the battery in the LCD pager remote is low. Replace the AAA battery in the
pager and your chirps will return to normal.
SYSTEM IS NOT SUCCESSFUL AT REMOTE STARTING DURING EXTREME COLD CONDITIONS:
Please be aware that during sub-freezing conditions your remote starter may take more that one attempt to
start, or it may not successfully start the vehicle after 3 attempts. During these conditions the vehicle may not
properly start even using the key, therefore trying to start the vehicle by remote would also be unsuccessful.
MY SYSTEM DOES NOT RESPOND TO THE REMOTE CONTROL (4 Parts):
1) You may be out of range of your vehicle. Move closer and attempt again.
2) Check for proper power/ground wiring connections of the alarm.
3) Check Antenna Module connection. The antenna included with this system must be plugged in to
send/receive signals. Antenna Module gets voltage from the control module.
4) The Remote/Pager may need a new battery or need to be reprogrammed to operate the system. See “ 2Way FM Transceiver programming” for more information.
LOW BATTERY WARNING - LCD REMOTE
Your 2-Way pager remote will warn you when the battery gets low. You will
see a battery “L” icon on the LCD screen when it is time to replace the AAA

you system. To replace the battery, simple unlatch and slide open the battery
door on the back of the 2-Way LCD remote. Carefully insert a new battery,
using the outline on the bottom of the battery compartment as a guide. Your
