second cycles then fully re-arm excluding the door input trigger. (Door input trigger is no longer functional)
Closing the entrance will re-set the door input trigger within 7 seconds.
Secondary RF Protection Mode
Every time you disarm your Carbine security system with your transmitter, the security system will start an RF
protection mode countdown. This is a timed secondary protection mode to insure that after the system is
disarmed by radio signal, it will count down for 60 seconds and then become re-armed if no one enters the
vehicle.
Note: The feature is only active when the security system has been programmed to automatically arm.
Alarm Mode Indicators:
1. The LED indicator will provide information on 7 modes of security system operation:
LED is off = Security system is disarmed.
LED is flashing = Security system is armed.
LED is flashing fast = Automatic arming timer or RF protection mode timer is counting down.
LED is on solid = Security system is in valet mode. (Only when the ignition key is on)
LED is flashing once every 5 seconds = Security system is in valet mode (Only when ignition key is off)
LED is flashing in a 2 flash-pause sequence = Tamper warning - security system has been trigger from
the hood/trunk switch or electronic sensor.
LED is flashing in a 3 flash-pause sequence = Tamper warning - security system has been triggered
from an opened door.
2. The horn/siren will provide information on four modes of security system operation.
One horn/siren chirp = Security system is armed.
One horn/siren chirp + One more chirp 5 seconds after the first chirp = Security system is armed but
one of the sensors was on and the alarm has bypassed it. The remaining sensors are armed.
Two horn/siren chirps = Security system is disarmed.
Four horn/siren chirps = Tamper warning + security system is disarmed.

Upgrade Options:
Option #1: Remote Power Door Lock/Unlock Control
Note: Your vehicle must have an electronic door locking system for this feature to operate.
Installing option #1 will allow the remote transmitter supplied with your Carbine security system to lock and
unlock your vehicle’s doors as it arms and disarms your security system.
Option #2: Remote Trunk/Hatch Release (CH #2)
Installing option #2 will allow the remote transmitter supplied with your security system to open your
vehicles trunk or rear hatch. Pressing the “AUX ” button on the transmitter for 2 seconds will open the
existing power trunk/hatch release mechanism.
*
Note: Vehicles that are not factory equipped with an electronic trunk release system will require additional
parts than a vehicle with a factory installed trunk release system.
Option #3: Dome Light Illumination
Installing option #3 will allow your Carbine security system to turn on your vehicles interior illumination
system at the time the security system is disarmed by the remote transmitter. The interior lighting will remain
on for 30 seconds after the security system is disarmed. Turing on the ignition key will turn off the interior
illumination before 30 seconds.
Option #4: Single Zone Shock Sensor
Installing option #4 will increase the level of security provided by your Carbine security system. If the shock
sensor becomes activated the security system will immediately trigger your security system by sounding the
horn/siren and flashing the parking lights.
Option #5: Starter Disable Relay
Adding option #5 will increase the level of protection that your Carbine security system can offer. When the
starter disable module is installed, the vehicles engine will not crank when the alarm system is in the armed
mode.
Option #6: Unlock Drivers Door First (Requires option #1 to be installed)
Installing option #6 will allow your Carbine security system to unlock only the drivers door upon disarming
the security system. To unlock the remaining doors, press the UNLOCK button once again within 3 seconds
of disarming the security system. The remaining doors will become unlocked.
Option #7: Dual Zone Shock Sensor
Installing option #7 will increase the level of security provided by your Carbine security system. Zone #1 of
the dual zone shock sensor will detect lighter non-threatening disturbances that would normally set off most
sensors and trigger the security system. If zone #1 is activated the security system will emit a single chirp
from the horn/siren. This single chirp is a pre-warning if a would be thief is attempting to enter your vehicle.
Zone #2 detects heavier impacts that are considered threatening and immediately triggers your security
system by sounding the horn/siren and flashing the parking lights.

System Maintenance:
The only maintenance that your Carbine security system requires is a periodic check of it’s operation to be
sure that all functions are operating properly. The batteries supplied with your transmitter will usually last
about 1 year. Heavier usage will shorten battery life. Reduced transmitter range is usually a sign that the
battery in the transmitter is becoming weak and should be replaced.
Note: The battery supplied with transmitter (A) will last about 1 year. The battery supplied with transmitter (B)
and (C) will last about 6 months. (Refer to the remote control transmitter drawing at the beginning of this
manual)
Battery Replacement:
Replacement batteries for your transmitter are available in most drug stores and camera shops. To replace
the battery, remove the small Phillips screw from the transmitter case and pull apart the top and bottom case
halves. Remove the battery from it’s holder. Insert the new battery in place of the old one observing the
batteries +/- polarity. Gently snap the top and bottom case halves together (DO NOT force them together) and
replace the Phillips screw (DO NOT over tighten the screw)
Replacement Transmitters:
In the event that the transmitter supplied with your Carbine security system becomes damaged or lost, return
to the installation facility that installed your security system to purchase a new one.
