Standard Features of the Concept 6O
✔ Lifetime Warranty —For as long as you own the vehicle, Clifford will repair or replace
the control unit and remote controls free of charge (see warranty card for full details).
✔ FACT™—False Alarm Control and Test — One of many patented Clifford
innovations, FACT absolutely, positively puts an end to recurring false alarms.
✔ A Pair of 4-Button/12-Channel Remote Controls —Fingertip command from a
distance.
✔ AntiScan™ — Some car thieves still use “scanners” that transmit one digital
code after another until they hit the one code that disarms the alarm. AntiScan
blocks scanners to prevent disarming by anyone other than you.
✔ Anti-CodeGrabbing™ (ACG) with Random Code Encryption— A
code-grabber is a new device that lets a thief record and capture off the air from a
distance the digital code transmitted by your remote control whenever you arm
your car. When you leave, the thief replays the code to disarm the alarm and
unlock your car’s doors. ACG with Random Code Encryption makes thieves’
code-grabbers completely useless, because each time you press the button on your
remote control a different random code is transmitted, yet the system will flawlessly
recognize and respond to your transmitter’s new code and ignore all others.
✔ Full-Time Remote Panic with Automatic Door Locking and Unlocking— If
you feel threatened, you can, with just a fingertip touch on your remote control,
sound the siren, flash the parking lights and unlock your vehicle’s power door
locks for quick entry into your car without fumbling with your keys. If you press
the panic button while driving, the siren will sound, the lights will flash and the
doors will lock to shield you from the assailant.
✔ Built-In: the World’s Best Anti-Carjacking and Vehicle Recovery System—
The ultimate in safe and effective anti-carjacking/vehicle recovery:
No-Risk Carjack Protection — No buttons to push, you do nothing except get out of
the car. Your Concept 60 allows the criminal to drive a distance of a block or two, then
flashes the parking lights, sounds the siren and safely shuts down the engine.
Safe & Intelligent Engine Shutdown — The system waits for the carjacker to slow
for traffic or a turn, then safely shuts down the engine.
Immediate Vehicle Recovery — Since the vehicle will be immobilized just a block
or two away, police intervention is not mandatory, as it is with other recovery systems.
PlainView™ Coded Disarming Switch — No “hidden” switch that carjackers can
find in an instant. The PlainView switch accepts only your code.
Anti-Tampering — If the thief tries entering codes at random, the system locks out
and will not respond to any code, even if the thief were to stumble onto the correct one!
Sabotage-Proof — If a thief removes the control unit, the engine remains immobilized!
3
Standard Features of the Concept 6O (cont.)
✔ UltraSecure Coded Valet Mode™ — Ensures that no thief can turn off your
Concept 60 like they can all other brands of alarms.
Remote Controlled Valet Mode Entry and Exit — With just a press of a button from
up to 100 feet away, you can enter or exit valet mode.
✔ Remotely Adjustable Dual-Zone Piezo Sensor™ AND Remotely Adjustable
Glass Tampering Sensor™— Two sensors for double the protection. The two
zones of the Piezo Sensor provide full perimeter protection: If someone bumps
into your car, the system will sound a distinctive warning tone; if forced entry is
detected, the full alarm will sound. The Glass Tampering Sensor can detect attempts
to break one of the vehicle’s windows even before the glass can be shattered.
Tonal Confirmation of Sensor Adjustments As you remotely increase sensitivity, the
confirming chirps rise in pitch. Conversely, as you lower each zone’s sensitivity, the
confirmation chirps become lower and lower in pitch.
Unprecedented Reliability — No moving mechanical parts to wear out and the entire
electronic circuitry of each sensor resides in the passenger compartment, not in the
engine well where it would be exposed to temperature extremes, water, vibration and dirt.
Adjust and Test Unobtrusively — No repeated arming and disarming, and no siren
wailing. You set and test sensitivity without activating the alarm!
✔ Remote Override of Optional Sensor #3—A press of a button on your remote
control will override optional sensor #3 (such as the optional Proximity Sensor
passenger compartment motion detector sensor) for those times when you must leave a
passenger or pet in your vehicle.
✔ Dual-Mode “Chirp” Silencing—Whenever you remotely arm or disarm, the siren
“chirps” and the parking lights flash to confirm system status. Whenever you
wish, you may silence the chirps with either of these two methods:
Remote Controlled Chirp Muting —Just a press of remote control button 3 will arm and
disarm the system silently. It’s perfect when parking at night in a quiet residential area.
Long-Term Chirp Silencing —A few flicks of a switch silences the chirps until you
choose to reactivate them.
✔ Remote Door Locking/Unlocking with Built-in Relays — No more fumbling with
keys in the dark! A single press of a button on the remote control simultaneously
arms your system and locks your vehicle’s power locks. Another press disarms
and unlocks.
User-Selectable AutoLock™ — Automatically locks the doors after you have begun
driving, or you may set it to lock them when you first turn on the ignition.
AutoUnLock— Automatically unlocks the doors when you turn off the engine.
Deluxe Remote Keyless Entry in Valet Mode — Use your remote control to lock
and unlock the car doors even while the system is in valet mode.

Standard Features of the Concept 6O (cont.)
✔ QuietChirp™— Whenever you desire, you may choose to lower the decibel
volume of the arm and disarm chirps to a level that is clearly audible but less
obtrusive than the full-volume chirps. All it takes is a few flicks of a switch.
✔ Built-In Parking Light Flasher —Visually confirms door lock and system status.
✔ Remote Controlled Courtesy Lighting —For your personal safety and
convenience, when you remotely disarm, the interior lights turn on and stay on
until you start the engine or 30 seconds, whichever occurs first.
✔ Patented Smart AutoTesting™—Automatically tests all triggers and sensors
every time you remotely arm and warns you if you accidentally arm the system
with the hood or trunk open. If there is a genuine trigger or sensor malfunction,
the system will specifically identify the problem, thereby eliminating
time-consuming and costly trouble-shooting.
✔ Patented Malfunction AutoBypass™ with Automatic Monitoring —In the
unlikely event of a trigger or sensor malfunction, your Concept 60 will
automatically bypass the malfunction and arm all other points to continue
relentless protection of your vehicle. If you simply left the hood, trunk or a door
open when you armed, just close it and the system will again monitor that trigger
point.
✔ Eight-Event TotalRecall™—The Concept 60’s memory stores the identity of the
last eight triggers and/or sensors activated. This provides an invaluable diagnostic
means, since, whenever you wish, the system will visually identify the activated
triggers and sensors in reverse chronological order.
✔ Patented Smart Prior Intrusion Attempt Alert — When you return to your
vehicle and remotely disarm your Concept 60, a special chirp and parking light flash
sequence will audibly and visually alert you from a distance if an intrusion attempt
was foiled while you were away. Concept 60 systems even identify the specific
trigger or sensor that detected the intrusion attempt.
✔ Tamper-Proof Immobilization™—While the Concept 60 is armed, the entire
ignition and fuel systems are disabled. For unmatched security, even if a thief
were to cut all the alarm wires, he would still be unable to start the engine.
✔ Dual-Port Immobilizer Capability—With the addition of an optional relay, you
can add yet another layer of protection to the Tamper-Proof Immobilization of
your Concept 60 by preventing an intruder from even cranking the starter.
Fault-proof design ensures that you can start the engine even in the unlikely event
of a system malfunction.
5
Standard Features of the Concept 6O (cont.)
✔ User-Programmable MultiSound Medallion™ Siren — The Concept 60’s
innovative MultiSound Medallion siren integrates creative form and engineering
triumphs. Designed entirely by Clifford engineers, there’s no other siren like it.
The remarkable Clifford MultiSound Medallion Siren is far superior in its
performance, features, reliability and even aesthetics to all other manufacturer’s
look-alike, sound-alike generic sirens.
Personalized Siren Sounds™ —Your choice of up to 64 distinct sound patterns for
unmistakable recognition from a distance.
Ultra-Reliability — Since vehicle security system sirens are installed in the engine
compartment, they’re continually exposed to an unforgiving environment of extreme
temperatures, vibrations, dirt, dust and water, which may cause the siren’s electronics
to fail. But the entire electronic circuitry of the Concept 60 siren and all of its
components have been designed into the underdash control unit. Consequently, the
electronic circuitry is sheltered from the harsh environment and is no longer the
weakest link of the alarm system. In fact, the calculated mean time between failure
(MTBF) of the Concept MultiSound Medallion Siren is 10 times better than that of
conventional sirens.
User-Selectable Siren Duration — You may set the siren wail for your choice of
either 30 or 60 seconds.
Patented Automatic Noise Abatement — The Concept 60 system’s siren
electronics limit alarm sounding to no more than five siren duration cycles even if a
door is left open in the wake of an intrusion attempt. This ensures against vehicle
battery drain or towing of your vehicle due to noise pollution. The system then
automatically resets and re-arms all other points to continue to provide the utmost
possible protection.
✔ Enhanced User-Selectable AutoArming™— Arms itself “passively” if you
forget. May qualify you for an insurance discount that could pay for the system.
AutoArming Enable/Disable — You may disable or re-enable AutoArming with
just a few flicks of a switch.
AutoArm & Lock™ — You may set the system to automatically lock the doors every
time the system AutoArms.
Visual Indication — Two parking lights flashes signal that the 30-second
countdown to AutoArming has started.
15-Second Entry Delay — If you ever temporarily lose the use of your remote
controls, an entry delay allows you to enter the vehicle and disarm the system without
sounding the siren.
Instant AutoArm Bypass — Just a quick turn of the ignition switch bypasses
AutoArming for one cycle — perfect when fueling the vehicle. AutoArming is
automatically restored the next time you park the car.
6
Standard Features of the Concept 6O (cont.)
✔ Remote Window/Sunroof Closure Capability — On certain vehicles, the
system’s integrated timer and an optional relay can be used to automatically close
the power windows and sunroof every time you remotely arm your system.
✔ Remote Headlight Activation Capability— Remotely turn on the headlights to
illuminate your way to and from your vehicle (requires an optional relay).
✔ Smart Remote Trunk Release Capability — An electronic interlock assures the
optional remote trunk release can be activated only when disarmed. The interlock
also makes sure that the trunk release cannot be remotely activated while driving.
✔ User-Selectable Headlight Reminder— Warns you if you forget to turn off the
headlights after you park your vehicle.
✔ Advanced CMOS Microcomputer —Monitors system functions more than
1,000,000 times per second, yet it draws less power than the vehicle’s clock.
✔ Extended Range Capability— The optional ElectroLoop Antenna™ mounts
unobtrusively inside your vehicle to triple the system’s remote control range!
✔ Patented Remote Control Code Learning — Just a few flicks of a switch lets
you match the system with up to 4 different 12-channel Clifford remote controls.
Just as easily, a lost or stolen remote can be deleted from the system memory.
✔ Multiple-Car Control— Use the same remote to control up to 7 different vehicles.
✔ High-Luminescence LED Status Indicator with Automatic Battery-Saving
Mode — Adds visual deterrence and identifies system status. To conserve
vehicle battery power, if the system has remained continuously armed for 48
hours, the flash rate will automatically slow to half the normal rate. If left
continuously armed for 96 hours, the blink rate will slow to one-quarter the
normal rate.
✔ Control Unit with 5 Channels— For remote system operation and accessories.
✔ Multiple Sensor/Trigger Inputs— Separate inputs for three sensors and for the
doors, trunk and hood for precise trigger/sensor identification.
✔ Patented SmartPowerUp™ II — When power to the system is disconnected, the
system’s non-volatile memory always remembers the last state (armed, disarmed
or valet mode) and returns to that state when power is restored. So if a thief
disconnects the power and then restores it in an attempt to start the car, the
system will re-arm and instantly sound the siren while immobilizing the vehicle.
✔ Full-Time Programming Access— You can easily change the status of nearly 30
user-selectable features at any time, even while driving. Clear, audible signals
confirm each feature selection and setting.

Welcome to the world of high-technology
vehicle security and convenience
ongratulations on the purchase of your Concept 60 vehicle
security/convenience system. Clifford Electronics has long been
recognized as the world’s leading manufacturer of high-technology vehicle
security systems and accessories. In fact, Clifford Electronics holds more
patents than all other vehicle security manufacturers combined. Buying
Clifford has always meant buying the best, and nowhere is our commitment
to technological innovation, reliability and quality more evident than in the
astounding Concept 60 — our top-of-the-line model.
Concept 60 is loaded with protective features and lifestyle convenience
benefits that other car alarm companies don’t even have on their wish lists,
let alone their alarms. Features like Anti-CodeGrabbing™ that fights off
the latest and most onerous threat from high-tech thieves. A thief equipped
with a code-grabber can record with total impunity the codes of your car
alarm’s remote control from up to several hundred feet away. How? The
thief simply waits for you to arm or disarm your alarm with your remote
control. The thief’s portable, pocket-sized code-grabber will automatically
pick and record the transmitted code off the air. As soon as you walk away,
he simply plays it back, instantly disarming your alarm and unlocking the
doors. It’s like giving the thief your car keys. Code-grabbing will instantly
defeat all other brands of remote controlled car alarms, regardless of
whether they are equipped with anti-scanning or trillions of digital codes.
Concept 60’s built-in BlackJax anti-carjacking and vehicle recovery
system enhances your personal safety and virtually assures that your
vehicle can be promptly recovered intact. Clifford’s unique PlainView
Coded Valet Switch ensures that no thief, carjacker or joy-rider can turn
off your Concept 60 like they can with all other car alarm brands. For total
freedom from incorrectly adjusted sensors, there’s remote controlled
adjustment of the system’s dual-zone digital vibration/impact sensor that
allows you to set the desired sensitivity level any place or time with just a
touch of a button on your remote control. Plus there’s remote controlled
valet mode, remote controlled timed headlight activation capability, an
electronic interlock to prevent accidental activation of the optional remote
trunk release, user-programmable MultiSound Medallion™ Siren with 64
distinctly different siren sound combinations sets your alarm apart from all
others, smart automatic locking/unlocking if you ever “panic” the system,
full-time programming access (even while driving), and much, much more.
Yet despite all the sophistication, the Concept 60 is amazingly easy to use:
never more difficult than a few flicks of a switch or a press of a button on
one of your miniature keychain remote controls.

Built-in vehicle recovery/anti-carjacking circuitry
Concept 60’s built-in BlackJax circuitry provides a safe and effective means of
recovering your vehicle after a theft or carjacking.
VERY IMPORTANT: The factory setting for the anti-carjacking feature is OFF. Once
you are familiar with the following, we suggest you turn this feature ON (see
pages 21-25). When anti-carjacking is on, each time you begin driving you
MUST enter your disarming code via the PlainView switch on the dashboard or
console (unless the system is in valet mode). You may turn this feature on or off
any time.
Your secret disarming code tells the system that the car is being driven by an authorized
person. Also, if you open your car door at any point (as would occur in a carjacking
attempt), you must again enter your secret code. Entering your code is simple and easy.
Definitions
Digit: A digit is defined as any number from 1 to 9, inclusive.
Disarming code: A disarming code may be 1 to 3 digits:
A 1-digit code = X = any number between 1-9
A 2-digit code = XY = any number between 11-99 (excluding numbers with zeros)
A 3-digit code = XYZ = any number between 111-999 (excluding numbers with zeros)
Remember, no code can have a zero.
PlainView switch: A rocker switch mounted on the dashboard or console. The switch
has three positions: 1.) Latched 2.) Center 3.) Spring-loaded momentary. When you
press the latched side, the switch remains in its pressed position. When you press the
momentary side, the switch bounces back to the center position. Each time you drive
your car, you must enter your secret disarming code via the PlainView switch.
Entering a digit: To enter a digit, you tap (press and release) on the momentary side of
the PlainView switch the number of times corresponding to the numeral of the digit to
be entered, followed by pressing to the latched side, then returning the switch to its
center position.
Entering a code: If your code has only one digit, enter the code as described in
“Entering a digit.” If your code has more than one digit, just repeat the above for each
digit of your code.
Your secret disarming code
Unless the system is in valet mode (see page 15), within 20 seconds after you switch on
the ignition and press the brake (or open a door while the engine is running), you must
enter your secret disarming code to let the system know it is you who is driving. Your
code will be a 1-to-3-digit number of your choosing. Each digit can be any number from
1 to 9, (i.e. the code can be any number between 1 and 999, except those that contain a
zero).
Your system’s factory-set disarming code is the single digit “2.”
9
IMPORTANT: What you MUST do to drive your car
If you have the anti-carjacking feature turned on, until you set your own disarming code,
you will use the factory-set code: the single digit “2.” To drive your car, do the following:
1. Start the engine, then press the brake pedal, then enter the factory-set code via the
rocker switch mounted on the dashboard or console (you may do this while driving):
a. To enter the factory-set disarming code of “2,” tap the momentary (spring-loaded)
side of the PlainView switch twice.
b. Press the PlainView switch to its other side (latched side), then return the switch to
its center position. You may continue driving.
NOTE: If you wish, you may select to use a remote control button sequence to
disengage the anti-carjacking countdown. See pages 21-25 for information.
What you MUST do if you the system reminds you to enter your code
If you forget to enter the code, the system will remind you to do so 20 seconds after you
begin driving by “chirping” the siren 5 times and flashing its dashboard LED. At this
point, you have another 20 seconds to enter your code. When entered, the LED will stop
flashing. If the proper code is not entered within 20 seconds after the 5-chirp signal, the
engine will shut down. You may enter your disarming code even after the engine is shut
down. Once the proper disarming code is entered, you will be able to resume driving.
How to set your own secret disarming code
Since all Concept systems have the same factory-set code, it is highly advisable that you
set your own disarming code. You may choose any 1-, 2-, or 3-digit code that does not
have any zeros. You can also change your disarming code whenever and wherever you
want. See User-selectable features on pages 21-25.
Example
Let’s say you want to set your disarming code to 31. To do so, you would do the following:
1. From the Table of user-selectable features on pages 24 and 25, you would note that
the “set a new secret valet code” feature is in column 4, row 6.
2. Enter program mode by turning on the ignition, entering your current valet code, then
pressing the PlainView switch to its momentary side for 3 seconds until you hear a chirp.
3. Select column 4 by moving the switch between latched and center 4 times, i.e.:
latched, center, latched, center, latched, center, latched, center. After a brief pause,
you will hear 4 chirps to confirm that you have selected feature column 4.
4. Select row 6 by pressing and releasing the momentary side of the switch 6 times. To
help you count, you will hear a chirp each time you press the momentary side.
5. Immediately flip the switch to the latched position.
6. Enter you new code. To enter 31 as your new code, you would press the switch in
this manner: momentary, momentary, momentary, latched (you’ll hear 3 chirps to
confirm the first digit), momentary, latched (1 chirp to confirm the second digit), center.
7. Wait 3 seconds until you hear 2 chirps, indicating the new code has been accepted.
8. Turn off the ignition to exit program mode (you’ll hear a 3-chirp confirmation).
9. VERY IMPORTANT: You must immediately test your new secret valet code: Turn
on the ignition, enter your new code, then flip the switch to its latched position. The
LED will illuminate. If it does not, the new code you programmed and the one you
just entered do not match. In such a case, the system will revert to the previous code.
10
Enable/disable anti-carjacking
You may enable or disable the anti-carjacking feature (see User-selectable features on
pages 21-25) or temporarily override it via UltraSecure Coded Valet Mode (see page 15).
What to do in a carjacking situation
In a carjacking situation, the sooner you are out of the car the better. Don’t resist or take
anything with you, just get out and get away. The instant the car door is opened, your
Concept 60 takes charge. First it lets the carjacker drive a short distance, ensuring your
safety. Then it flashes the brake lights and sounds the siren to caution drivers near your
vehicle. It then waits for the carjacker to slow for a turn or traffic, at which point it shuts
down the engine and dynamically prevents it from being restarted. If the carjacker tries
to use the PlainView switch to enter code combinations at random, the system will lock
out for two minutes after three incorrect tries. Even if he stumbles onto the correct code,
the carjacker is still locked out. Unable to restart the vehicle, and with the siren wailing
and brake lights flashing, the carjacker has no choice but to abandon your car. (The
same occurs to anyone who steals your parked car). You simply walk a block or two to
your car, enter your code, and the system releases control of the vehicle to you.
Your 4-button/12-channel remote controls
The 4-button/12-channel remote controls are ultra-sophisticated miniature radio
transmitters powered by a tiny 12-volt battery. Range is up to 100 feet (up to 300 feet
with the optional ElectroLoop Antenna). A weak remote control battery will reduce
range. Electrical interference and even sunspots can interrupt the signal from your
remote to the system. If this happens, repeatedly press the remote control button (this
works better than holding the button down). The 4-button/12-channel remote control is
the key to your system. It incorporates Clifford’s Anti-CodeGrabbing™ (ACG)
technology for the ultimate protection against “code-grabbing” devices (see page 14).
You will use your remote control to arm and disarm the system, lock and unlock the
doors, activate the panic feature, adjust sensor sensitivity, enable/exit valet mode,
override an optional sensor, command options such as a remote trunk release, timed
headlight activation, power window operation, electric garage door interface and even
remote starting of the engine and heater or air conditioner, among other options.
How to use your keychain remote control
Your remote control can individually command
up to 12 different system functions and options.
It’s like having a TV with 12 channels. You
change channels (functions) with your keychain
remote control. But instead of putting 12 buttons
on the remote, we made it easy: First, the button
you use the most — button 1 to arm, disarm, lock
and unlock — is larger than the others. Buttons 2,
3 and 4 are the smaller buttons to the right, below
and left of button 1. The LevelShift button on the
side of the remote control allows you to select channels 5–12:
11
To transmit either channel 1, 2, 3 or 4: Just press either button 1, 2, 3 or 4. For
instance, to transmit channel 3, press button 3. While you transmit, the LED indicator
will blink once every second: this indicates level 1.
To transmit either channel 5, 6, 7 or 8: Press the LevelShift button once. This shifts
buttons 1–4 to level 2 (channels 5–8). Then press the desired button within the next 7
seconds. For instance, to transmit channel 5, press the LevelShift button once, then
press button 1. While you transmit, you’ll notice that the LED indicator blinks twice,
pauses, blinks twice, etc.: this indicates level 2.
To transmit channel 9, 10, 11 or 12: Press the LevelShift button twice. This shifts
buttons 1–4 to level 3 (channels 9–12). Then press the corresponding button within the
next 7 seconds. For instance, to transmit channel 10, press the LevelShift button twice,
then press button 2. While you transmit, you’ll notice that the LED blinks three times,
pauses, blinks three times, etc.: this indicates level 3.
NOTE: One second after you stop transmitting level 2 or level 3 (channels 5–12),
the remote control automatically returns to level 1 (channels 1–4).
What each button/channel does
Your Concept 60 remote controls come pre-programmed so that certain channels
command certain functions. If you wish, you can actually assign any channel except 9
through 12 to any function (see pages 21-25). The following chart indicates what each
remote control channel number does, and how to transmit each channel number.

How to interpret the chirps and parking light flashes
When you use the remote control, the system responds with chirps (unless the chirp muting
feature is turned on) and parking light flashes. These chirp/flash acknowledgments mean:
Chirps and flashes
Meaning
1
Your system is disarmed or you have remotely exited valet mode (see page 16)
2
Your system is armed or you have remotely engaged valet mode (see page 16)
2 and then 4
Armed but there is a door open (if there was a 5-sec. delay) or the sensor is
malfunctioning (if there was a 10-sec. delay) (see Smart AutoTesting on page 18)
3
Disarmed but there was an intrusion attempt while you were away
(see Smart prior intrusion attempt on page 18)
4
Armed but the hood or trunk is ajar (see Smart AutoTesting on page 18)

20-seconds to engine shutdown: enter your disarming code IMMEDIATELY
Anti-CodeGrabbing™ (ACG) with Random Code Encryption
A Clifford exclusive that protects you and your automobile from the most effective and
onerous car stealing device ever used by car thieves — a code-grabber. Code-grabbers
are far more effective and efficient than scanning. Unlike scanners that sequentially
transmit one digital code after another until they hit the correct code to disarm the alarm
(a process that may take minutes to years depending on the system’s total number of
codes), code-grabbers literally record, from hundreds of feet away, the code sent by your
car alarm remote control. Then the thief simply plays back the code when you’re gone,
Enhanced AutoArming™
If this feature is enabled and you forget to remotely arm, the system will automatically
arm itself 30 seconds after the vehicle doors are closed. For your convenience, if you
re-open any door(s) within the 30-second countdown, AutoArming will restart from the
beginning once all doors are closed. Concept 60 has these additional AutoArming features:
AutoArming enable/disable: If you prefer, you may deactivate or reactivate the
AutoArming feature. See User-selectable features on pages 21-25.
Visual acknowledgment: Five seconds after you exit the vehicle and close all the
doors, the parking lights will flash twice to confirm that the AutoArming
countdown is progressing. Then, 25 seconds later, the system will AutoArm.
AutoArm & Lock: To ensure you can’t accidentally lock your keys inside the car,
the system is factory-set not to lock the doors upon AutoArming. To change this
setting, see User-selectable features on pages 21-25.
User-selectable entry delay: If you temporarily lose the use of your remote
controls, you may turn on the 15-second entry delay feature. This allows you to
enter the car and silently disarm the system by turning on the ignition within 15
seconds of opening the door. See User-selectable features on pages 21-25.
Instant AutoArming bypass: Prevents AutoArming when fueling the vehicle and
other times when you wish to temporarily bypass AutoArming. To activate Instant
AutoArming Bypass, rapidly turn the ignition switch to “ON” then “OFF.” You
will hear a single siren chirp to confirm that the system will not AutoArm. The
system reverts to its normal operating mode when you next start the engine.
UltraSecure™ valet mode
In seconds, thieves can disable other alarm brands by hotwiring the ignition and flicking
an easy-to-find “hidden” valet switch. Your Concept 60 has safeguards that absolutely
ensure that a thief cannot enable the valet mode as a way of “turning off” your system.
How? To enable valet mode, the driver must first enter the secret disarming code on the
PlainView switch (i.e., the same code you use to turn off the BlackJax anti-carjacking
circuitry; see pages 9-10). Whenever the system is put in valet mode, it overrides the
anti-carjacking features and the AutoArming feature (see above), as well as all other
security features. At various times, you will need to switch the system off. For instance,
when having your car serviced, washed or parked by a valet.
Remember: When your car will be driven by someone else (such as a mechanic) who
will not know your disarming code, you must place the system in valet mode, otherwise
your car will be immobilized.
NOTE: If you temporarily lose the use of your remote controls, you can disarm
the system by enabling valet mode.
To enable valet mode
1. Turn the ignition switch to its “ON” position or start the engine.
2. Enter your secret disarming code (as noted on page 9) on the PlainView switch, then
return the switch to its center position.
3. You now have 5 seconds to press latched position to enter valet mode. The system’s
LED will glow continually for on-going visual confirmation of valet mode.
15
To exit valet mode
1. Turn the ignition switch to its “ON” position or start the engine (you may also
perform the following while driving).
2. Flick the switch back to its center position. The LED will turn off to confirm that the
system is now in its normal operating mode.
Remote controlled valet mode entry and exit
You can even enable or exit valet mode with your remote control simply by transmitting
channel 9 (LevelShift twice, then button 1). In addition to the above indications, two
parking light flashes will confirm that you have remotely enabled valet mode, while a
single flash confirms exiting of valet mode.
Keyless entry in valet mode
Even if valet mode is enabled, you can still remotely control the convenience features.
For instance, simply press button 1 (channel 1) as if you were disarming and the doors
will unlock (indicated by one parking light flash) and the interior lights will turn on.
Press button 1 again and the doors will lock (confirmed by two flashes). You may also
use the other channels to activate options such as a remote trunk release or remote
engine starting.
Remote controlled sensor adjustments
Due to ever-changing conditions, all alarms require periodic fine-tuning of their sensors.
With other alarms, this requires repeated trips back to the dealer. Not so with Concept
60. You can adjust sensitivity of each sensor and each sensor zone electronically
without tools and without even knowing where the sensors are mounted!
If the setting of one or both Piezo Sensor zones is either too sensitive or not sensitive
enough, you may individually test and adjust the settings of each zone. To adjust the
Piezo Sensor, just use the following procedure:
1. Disarm the system, then select the Piezo Sensor zone you wish to adjust:
a. Primary zone: Transmit channel 11 (LevelShift twice, then button 3).
b. Warning zone: Transmit channel 12 (LevelShift twice, then button 4).
2. To test the current sensitivity setting:
a. Primary zone: Firmly “thump” the window pillar with the side of your fist. You
will hear a chirp to confirm activation of the primary zone.
b. Warning zone: “Thump” the window pillar with somewhat less force. A chirp will
confirm activation of the warning zone.
3. If you are not satisfied with the detection level and wish to increase sensitivity, press
button 2 on your remote control. To decrease it, press button 4. Each time you
increase sensitivity, the siren will chirp in higher and higher pitched tones to confirm
the higher sensitivity setting. Conversely, lower and lower tones confirm each
sensitivity decrease. Two normal tone chirps indicate minimum and maximum
settings. There are 16 sensitivity levels for each of the two sensing zones.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you are satisfied with the sensitivity, then press button 1 to
record the new sensitivity setting and exit the sensor test/adjust mode (you’ll hear
three chirps to confirm exit). You may now either repeat steps 1–4 for the other
sensor zone, or press button 1 again to arm the system.
Sound complicated? It really isn’t, there’s just a lot of explanation of what’s happening
with each step. All you really have to do is the actions noted in bold type. Give it a try.
To remotely test and adjust the sensitivity of the Glass Tampering Sensor, see the
User-selectable features section on pages 21-25.
Remote controlled override of optional sensor #3
If you have an optional third sensor, transmitting channel 10 within 10 seconds of
arming the system will override the optional sensor. For instance, if you have an
optional Proximity Sensor that picks up any movement inside the passenger
compartment, you may use channel 10 to turn it off for those times when you must leave
a passenger or pet in the vehicle. Remote override of optional sensor #3 is visually
confirmed with four flashes of the parking lights.
Smart trunk release option
If the remote trunk release feature was installed, you may use remote control button 2 to
remotely pop the trunk. Your system has a built-in electronic interlock to prevent
uninten- tional activation of the remote trunk release when you drive, or when the
system is armed.
17
Smart AutoTesting™
Each time you remotely arm the system, it tests all triggers and sensors. If the hood or
trunk is open when you remotely arm, the system will immediately alert you of the
problem by sounding 4 chirps and 4 parking light flashes instead of the usual 2 and 2. If
a door is ajar, you will receive the usual 2 chirps and flashes, then, 5 seconds later, there
will be 4 chirps and 4 flashes. (This door ajar warning will not work on vehicles that
have factory-delayed courtesy lights). If a sensor is malfunctioning, you will receive the
usual 2 chirps and 2 flashes, then, 10 seconds later, there will be 4 chirps and 4 flashes.
NOTE: Since this is a warning indication, you will hear the 4 chirps even if you
have the chirp muting feature turned on.
Specific malfunction identification: The system can also indicate the specific trigger
or sensor that is malfunctioning. If you get the 4-chirp/4-flash signal upon arming,
perform the following to identify the malfunctioning trigger or sensor:
1. Remotely disarm, then turn on the ignition. The LED status indicator inside your
vehicle will be flashing, pause, then repeat.
2. Count the number of blinks in one cycle between pauses (for your convenience, the
blink cycle repeats a total of 5 times) and refer to the chart below:
Number of LED blinks between pauses
Malfunction
1 blink
Piezo Sensor
2 blinks
Glass Tampering Sensor
3 blinks*
Door trigger*
4 blinks
Trunk trigger
5 blinks
Hood trigger
6 blinks
Optional sensor #3
* If your vehicle has a factory-installed feature that turns off or dims the interior courtesy lights
several seconds after you exit the vehicle, the system cannot provide this indication.
Automatic malfunction bypass
To provide the utmost protection even if a system component malfunctions, the system
will automatically bypass any faulty point and arm all other triggers and sensors to
provide the utmost possible protection until you can have the system serviced by your
local Authorized Clifford Dealer. If you accidentally armed with the hood, trunk or a
door open, just close the open point and the system will again monitor that point.
Smart prior intrusion attempt alert
If you hear three chirps when you remotely disarm, it means that a trigger or sensor was
activated in your absence. When you enter the vehicle and turn on the ignition (or start
the engine), the LED will blink 1–5 times, pause, then repeat the blink cycle 4 more
times. Count the number of blinks in one cycle and refer to the chart above.
18
Multiple-event TotalRecall™
The system’s memory records the identity of the last eight activated or malfunctioning
triggers and sensors, which allows your installer to instantly track down malfunctions. To
identify the triggers and sensors held in the system’s memory, use the following procedure:
1. With the ignition OFF, flick the PlainView valet switch to its latched side.
2. Press button I to “arm” the system, then again to “disarm.”
3. The LED will blink 1–5 times to indicate the most recently activated point, pause,
blink 1–5 times to indicate the next most recently activated point, and so on.
4. Write down the number of blinks between pauses and refer to the chart below.
Number of LED blinks between pauses
Trigger/sensor indication
1 blink
Piezo Sensor
2 blinks
Glass Tampering Sensor
3 blinks
Door trigger
4 blinks
Trunk trigger
5 blinks
Hood trigger
6 blinks
Optional sensor #3
How to interpret the LED status indicator
The LED on your car’s dashboard or console will inform you of the system status:
LED Condition
Meaning
Off
System is disarmed and in normal operating mode (i.e., valet mode is off)
On
Valet mode is on, the vehicle can be driven or serviced without having to disarm
Flashing (ignition off)
System is armed and protecting your vehicle
Flashing (ignition on)
20-second countdown to engine shutdown: Enter your disarming code IMMEDIATELY
Pause between flashes
Either a malfunction (see page 18) or an intrusion was attempted (see page 18)
Automatic Battery-Saving Mode
To conserve vehicle battery power (the LED draws more current than the entire control
unit), if the system has remained continuously armed for 48 hours, the flash rate will
automatically slow to half the normal rate. After 96 hours, it slows to one-quarter.
SmartPowerUp™ II
If power to the system is ever removed, SmartPowerUp II ensures the system
automatically restores itself to its previous state when power is restored. So if a thief
disconnects the power and then restores it in an attempt to start the car, the system will
re-arm and instantly sound the siren while immobilizing the vehicle. If your vehicle is to
be serviced by a mechanic, just put the system in valet mode via the remote control (see
page 16). If the mechanic needs to interrupt power, your system will automatically return to
its valet mode state when power is restored; there will be no alarm activation and no
need to provide your mechanic with your remote control and instructions on how to use it.
19
High-output MultiSound Medallion™ Siren
All the siren electronics are in the system control unit rather than the siren itself. This
protects them from heat, dirt and exposure to the elements (other alarm companies’
sirens are far more susceptible to failure). Your Concept 60 also provides these
additional features:
Personalized Siren Sounds: Most alarm sirens have a single “warble” tone. A few
offer “six-tone” sirens that cannot be adjusted or require destruction of circuit
wires to change the sounds (the change is permanent and cannot be changed
again). Your siren is different. As shipped from the factory, it sounds six different
alarm sounds. However, you may turn any of the six sounds on or off to create a
different combination of sound patterns. In all, there are 64 different
combinations. You may set your own Personalized Siren Sounds so if you hear a
siren at a distance, you will know for sure whether it is your car or someone
else’s. See User-selectable features on pages 21-25.
QuietChirps™: You can control the volume of the normal arm and disarm chirps.
As shipped from the factory, your system issues full-volume chirp
acknowledgments. If you prefer, you may reduce the chirp volume to a level that
is clearly audible, yet less obtrusive. See the User-selectable features section on
pages 21-25.
Long-term chirp silencing: Whenever you wish, you may silence your Concept
60’s arm and disarm chirps until you decide to restore them. The parking light
flashes will continue to provide visual confirmation of remote controlled arming
and disarming. See User-selectable features on pages 21-25.
Remote controlled chirp muting: Remote controlled chirp muting capabilities are
especially valuable when parking late at night in a quiet residential area or any
other time when you want to arm or disarm silently. To arm or disarm silently,
simply press button 3 (channel 3) on your remote control instead of the usual
button 1 (channel 1).
Siren duration: When the system detects an intrusion attempt, the alarm is set to
sound for 30 seconds. However, if you prefer, you may change it to 60 seconds.
See the User-selectable features section on pages 21-25.
20
User-selectable features
Your Concept 60 allows you to set many of its features to your own personal
preferences. Although the system’s programming capabilities are very extensive, we
have made the programming procedures very simple: to make a change, you just flick
the PlainView switch a few times. Once you’ve changed a few settings, you’ll find that
programming Concept 60 is so easy that you can even do it while driving! The system
comes with all of its features pre-programmed as noted by the bold type in the Table of
user-selectable features on pages 24-25. To change any of the settings, use the steps
noted below. To restore the feature to its factory setting, just repeat the procedure:
How to change a user-selectable feature:
Briefly, here’s how it will work:
• You will pick a feature from the Table on pages 24-25, noting the feature’s
column and row numbers.
• First you’ll need to get into program mode by entering your disarming code (see
page 9). After you have entered your code, press the momentary side of the
PlainView switch until you hear a chirp. You’re now in the “Feature Select” position.
• Next you’ll press the latched side of the switch a number of times identical to the
column number. Lastly, you will press the momentary side of the switch a number
of times corresponding to the row number.
That’s all there is to it! After you enter the feature’s column and row numbers, you’ll
hear either one chirp to indicate that the feature has been turned off, or two chirps if turned
on. It’s easy once you’ve done it. Try the examples on page 22 to get the hang of it.
Step-by-step programming instructions
1. Refer to the Table of user-selectable features and make note of the column (across)
number and the row (down) number of the feature(s) you wish to program.
2. Turn on the ignition, or start the engine (skip this step if the engine is running).
3. Enter your disarming code (see page 15), then press the PlainView switch to its
momentary side for about 3 seconds until you hear a siren chirp (the system LED will
also turn on to indicate program mode.) You are now in the “Feature Select” position.
4. Select the feature column: Toggle the switch in and out of the latched position the
same number of times as the column number of the selected feature (NOTE: each
latched-to-center motion is counted as one). Pause. You will hear the same number
of chirps as the column number you have selected, audibly confirming your selection.
5. Select the feature row: Press and release the momentary side the same number of
times as the feature’s row number. You’ll will hear a chirp each time you press.
6. If there is a NOTE for the selected feature, perform the actions noted.
7. Pause. You will hear either one or two chirps: Two chirps = ON, one chirp = OFF.
8. You may select another feature, or you may exit program mode:
a. To select another feature in that column, repeat step 5 within the next 10 seconds
(after 10 seconds, 3 chirps mean you are now back in the “Feature Select” position).
b. To select a different feature column, go to step 4.
c. To exit program mode, turn the ignition off (you’ll hear 3 chirps and the LED will
turn off to indicate exit of program mode). If driving, just wait 60 seconds and the
system will automatically exit program mode.
21
EXAMPLE 1: Turn off siren sound number 2:
You can turn each of the siren’s six different sound patterns on and off as you wish to
create you own custom sound (see the Personalized Siren Sounds section on page 20 for
more information) To turn off “Sound 2” you’ll note that “Sound 2” is in column 1, row
2 of the Table (on pages 24-25). The “on” in bold type indicates the factory setting. The
following example will turn that one sound off:
1. To enter program mode, turn on the ignition, enter your disarming code (as noted
on page 9), then hold the switch in its momentary position until you hear a chirp.
2. Select column 1 by pressing latched and then back to center (wait for the one
chirp to confirm column 1). To select row 2, press momentary twice (you’ll hear
a chirp each time you press the momentary side).
3. After a brief pause, you’ll hear one chirp to confirm that sound #2 is now off.
4. Turn the ignition off. You’ll hear 3 chirps, confirming automatic exit from the
program mode, and you’re done!
If you make an error, just turn off the ignition and start again. To turn siren sound 2 back
on, just repeat steps 1–4. In step 3, you’ll hear two chirps to confirm that siren sound 2
has been turned back on. Remember, one chirp = off, two chirps = on.
NOTE: You have 10 seconds to enter the row number after selecting the column
number. If you wait too long, the system jumps back to the “Feature Select”
position (this is indicated with 3 chirps). If you wait another 30 seconds, the
system will exit program mode.
In Example 2 below, you’ll learn how easy it is to change the settings of several different
features in just one session, without having to repeatedly turn the ignition on and off:
EXAMPLE 2: Turn off siren sound numbers 4 and 6, then turn on QuietChirps:
This time, we will change the settings of three different features in just one
programming session: We will turn off sounds 4 and 6 and turn on the QuietChirps
feature (see page 20). Here’s all you have to do:
1. Enter program mode as previously noted (ignition on, enter your disarming code,
press the momentary side until you here a chirp).
2. Since sound 4 is in column 1, row 4 of the Table, you will have to enter the
latched side once and the momentary side four times. Therefore, move the switch
to the latched position and back to center. Wait for a single chirp to confirm the
selection of column 1. Within 10 seconds, press and release the momentary side of
the switch 4 successive times. You will hear a chirp after each single press. These
chirps will help you count the number of presses. After a brief pause, you’ll hear 1
chirp to confirm that sound 4 is now off.
3. Since sound 6 is in column 1, row 6 and is in the same column as you just entered
for sound 4, there is no need in this case to again select column 1. Therefore, you
can go right away to the row selection (momentary side of the switch). Now,
within 10 seconds, press the momentary side six times to jump to row 6. After a
brief pause, you’ll hear 1 chirp to confirm that sound 6 is now off.
4. Now look up the location on the table of QuietChirps. Note that it’s in column 3,
row 5 (latched, center, latched, center, latched, center, wait for the 3-chirp/column
3 confirmation, then 5 momentary presses). After a brief pause, you’ll hear two
chirps to confirm that the QuietChirps feature is now on.
continued . . .
22
5. To exit the program mode, turn the ignition off. You’ll hear 3 chirps to confirm
program mode exit.
You just made three programming changes in only five steps. Easy, isn’t it? Notice
again that in step 3 on the previous page you did not have to re-select column 1. If you
don’t touch the switch, the system stays in the column for 10 seconds to allow you to
select any other feature(s) in the same column without having to re-enter the column
number. Of course, you can select a new column at any time.
If you wait more than 10 seconds, the system automatically jumps back to the “Feature
Select” position. This is the “stand-by” position: ready for entry of a new programming
selection. If no action is taken for the next 60 seconds, the system automatically exits
program mode, perfect if you program while driving or if you forget to turn off the
ignition.
Adding new remote controls
For other drivers in your family, or if you wish to control Concept systems on your other
cars with the same remote control, you can buy additional remote controls from any
Clifford Dealer and program them into the system yourself. Each Concept 60 will
respond to as many as four 12-channel remote controls. To add a new remote control to
the system, use the procedures noted in the User-selectable features section on pages
21-25.
How to erase the codes of lost or stolen remote controls
If one of your remote controls is ever lost or stolen, you can erase its digital codes from
