Important Information
Congratulations on the purchase of your state-of-the-art vehicle
security system. This system has been designed to provide years of
trouble-free operation. By carefully reading this guide prior to
using your system, you will maximize the use of this product and
its features.
System Maintenance
Your vehicle security system has no specific maintenance requirements. The remote transmitter is powered by a lightweight 3-volt
lithium battery that will last approximately one year under normal
use. When the battery begins to weaken, the LED on the remote
transmitter will dim and you will notice reduced operating range
when using the remote transmitter. To access the battery for

Transmitter Functions
This system is programmable, making it possible to assign any transmitter button to any specific receiver function. The remote initially
comes programmed with Standard Configuration, but may also be
customized by an authorized dealer. The buttons in all of the instructions in this manual correspond to a Standard Configuration remote.

Using Your System
The transmitter buttons indicated in this manual correspond to a
standard configuration transmitter, unless otherwise specified.
Arming
You can arm the security system by pressing
for one second.
When the system arms, you will hear a short siren sound (chirp)
and the parking lights (optional) will flash once. If the power door
locks are controlled by the system, the doors will also lock. Once
armed, the LED system status indicator will flash once per second
to indicate that the system is actively protecting your vehicle. If
you hear a second chirp after arming and notice that the LED system status indicator is flashing in a grouped pattern, this signals
Bypass Notification. Bypass Notification is described in detail in
the Diagnostics section of this manual.
Your security system can also be programmed for Passive Arming.
With Passive Arming, the system automatically arms itself 30 seconds after the ignition has been turned off and the last door has
been closed. During the 30-second Passive Arming countdown, the
LED system status indicator will flash twice as fast as it does when
the system is armed. If the system is programmed for Passive
Arming, care must be taken to prevent the keys from being locked
in the vehicle.
6
© 2004 Directed Electronics, Inc.
NOTE: If any protected entry point, such as a door, ignition is open,
Passive Arming will not engage. Additionally, each time a sensor is triggered during the Passive Arming countdown, the countdown starts over.
Arming your security system protects your vehicle to the following
degrees:
■
If a door is opened, the siren immediately starts chirping and
the parking lights (optional) start flashing to provide an
instant response. Three seconds later, the siren output
changes to a continuous blast. This two-stage progressive
response allows you time to disarm the security system with
your remote transmitter, in case the door is inadvertently
opened while the system is armed.
■
Turning on the ignition key triggers the same two-stage progressive response as opening a door.
■
The fault-proof starter interrupt prevents the vehicle’s starter
from cranking.
Disarming
Press
to disarm the security system when it is already armed.
If the power locks are controlled by the system, the doors will also
unlock. Disarming is confirmed when the parking lights (optional)
flash twice and the siren emits two chirps. The LED system status
indicator will also stop flashing. The siren chirping four times when
disarming indicates Tamper Alert, which is described in the
Diagnostics section of this guide.

Disarming Without a Transmitter
If your transmitter is lost or damaged, you can manually disarm
your vehicle security system. To disarm the system without a transmitter, you must have the vehicle's ignition key and know where
the Valet switch is located. Be sure to check with your installer at
the time of installation for the location of the Valet switch.
To disarm the security system,
turn the ignition key on and
press the Valet switch within
15 seconds. The system should
DRW-35
now disarm. If the system does not disarm, you may have waited
too long to press the Valet switch; turn the ignition off and repeat
the process.
Location of Valet Switch_________________________________
Panic Mode
If you are threatened in or near your vehicle, you can press
for 1.5 seconds to trigger Panic Mode on your security system and
attract attention. The siren will sound and the parking lights
(optional) will flash for 30 seconds. To stop the Panic Mode at any
time, press
8
again.
© 2004 Directed Electronics, Inc.
Remote-Controlled Silent Arm/Disarm
Use remote-controlled silent arm/disarm to temporarily turn off
the arm or disarm chirps by briefly pressing
before either
arming or disarming. The confirmation chirp(s) will then be eliminated for that one operation only. To permanently turn off the arm
and disarm chirps, contact your installation dealer.
NOTE: This ensures that the siren does not chirp in an environment where
you do not want chirps to be emitted. The system is still capable of being
triggered by heavier impacts; only the warn-away response generated by
light impacts is bypassed.
Valet Mode
Valet Mode prevents your security system from arming and triggering either automatically or with the remote transmitter. In Valet
Mode, the system will not arm, but all convenience functions (door
locks, trunk release, etc.) remain operational. This feature is useful when washing or servicing your vehicle. You can access Valet
Mode either manually or from the remote transmitter.
To enter or exit Valet Mode with the Valet switch:
1. Turn the ignition on.
2. Turn the ignition off.
3. Press and release the Valet
switch within 10 seconds.
DRW-35
The LED system status indicator will light solidly if you are
entering Valet Mode and will turn off if you are exiting Valet Mode.

again.
The LED system status indicator will light solidly if you have
entered Valet Mode and will turn off if you have exited Valet Mode.
Diagnostics
The microprocessor at the heart of your system has the ability to
constantly monitor all of the switches and sensors connected to it.
It can detect any faulty switches or sensors and prevent them from
disabling the entire system. It can also record and report any triggers that occur when you are away from your vehicle.
Arming Diagnostics
If the system is armed at the same time that an input is active
(door opening, ignition, etc.), you will hear one chirp to indicate
arming and a second chirp a few seconds later to indicate Bypass
Notification. A Bypass Notification chirp means that the system
10
© 2004 Directed Electronics, Inc.
ignores the input that was active when the system was armed,
until that input ceases. Three seconds after that input ceases, the
system will resume normal monitoring. For example, if your vehicle
has an interior light exit delay and you arm the system before the
light turns off, you may hear a Bypass Notification chirp. Three
seconds after the light turns off, however, normal monitoring
resumes.
NOTE: Bypass Notification does not occur when the system is in remotecontrolled silent arm/disarm mode or if the chirps have been programmed
not to sound.
Disarming Diagnostics
Your system has a Tamper Alert feature that notifies you of system
triggers that occur while you are away from your vehicle. If you
hear four chirps when you disarm, this indicates that the system
was triggered in your absence. In both cases, the pattern of the
flashing LED system status indicator indicates which zone was triggered (see Table of Zones). The LED does not, however, report when
warn-away responses have activated; it only reports triggered
sequences. The system retains this information in its memory and
will continue to chirp four each time the system is disarmed, until
the next time the ignition is turned on.
Table of Zones
A zone is represented by the number of LED flashes used by the
system to identify a particular type of input. Standard input assignments are listed in the following table, along with spaces to write
in any optional sensors or switches that you have had installed.

Stealth Coding
Technology
™
The receiver and transmitter use mathematical formulas called
algorithms to change their codes each time the transmitter is used.
This Stealth Coding™ Technology has been developed to increase
the security of the unit. By following this set code sequence, the
receiver and transmitter stay synchronized, even if the transmitter
is used out of range of the vehicle. If, however, the transmitter is
pressed many times out of range, or the battery is removed, the
transmitter may get temporarily out of sync and fail to operate the
system. To resynchronize the transmitter, simply press
several times within range of the vehicle. The system will automatically resynchronize and the transmitter will respond normally.

High Frequency
Your system transmits and receives at 434 MHz. This provides a
cleaner spectrum with less interference and a more stable signal.
Enjoy a phenomenal increase in range, even in areas with high
radio interference.
Programming Options
Programming options control your system's normal, operational
set-up. Most options do not require additional parts, but some may
require installation labor.
This system's programming options are listed below, with the factory default settings in bold:
■
Active arming (only with the transmitter) or passive arming
(automatic arming 30 seconds after the last vehicle door is
closed).
■
Arming and disarming confirmation siren chirps can be programmed on or off.

Installation Options
Installation options may require additional parts or labor. Please
consult your dealer.
Interior Light Illumination: The interior domelight can be configured to illuminate for 30 seconds after the alarm is disarmed. If
the system is rearmed during that 30-second period, the interior
light illumination will terminate until the alarm is disarmed again.
This option may require a relay to be added to some vehicles.
Glossary of Terms
Control Module: The "brain" of your security system. Usually hidden underneath the dash area of the vehicle. It houses the microprocessor that monitors your vehicle and controls all of the security system’s functions.
Fault-Proof Starter Interrupt: Located on-board the control module, this is an automatic switch controlled by the security system
that prevents the starter from cranking whenever the system is
armed. The vehicle is never prevented from cranking when the system is disarmed, in Valet Mode, or if the starter interrupt fails.
14
© 2004 Directed Electronics, Inc.
Input: Any physical connection to the security system. An input
can be provided through a sensor, pinswitch or by existing systems
in the vehicle, such as ignition or courtesy lights.
LED: A red light mounted inside the vehicle, at a location determined by the installer. The LED indicates the status of your system
and also reports triggers and faults in the system or sensors.
Siren: A noise generating device, usually installed in the engine
compartment of the vehicle. The siren generates the chirps and
tones heard when the system is triggered.
Transmitter: A hand-held, remote control that operates the various functions of the security system.
Trigger or Triggered Sequence: The "setting off" or "tripping" of
the alarm. A triggered sequence consists of the siren sounding and
the parking lights flashing for 30 seconds.
Valet Switch: A small, push-button switch mounted inside the
vehicle, at a location determined by the installer. This switch is
used to override the alarm when a transmitter is lost or damaged,
or can be used to put the system into Valet Mode.
Zone: A zone is a separate input that the alarm recognizes as
unique. Each input to the system is connected to a particular zone.
Two or more inputs may share the same zone.
