Welcome to the world of high-technology
vehicle security and convenience
ongratulations on the purchase of your IntelliGuard 700 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 IntelliGuard Series.
Your IntelliGuard 700 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.
Clifford’s unique PlainView Coded Valet Switch ensures that no thief can
turn off your IntelliGuard 700 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 Magnetic Resonance
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 entry/exit, remote controlled timed headlight
activation, an electronic interlock to prevent accidental activation of the
optional remote trunk release when the system is armed or when the engine
is running, Clifford’s unique user-programmable MultiSound Medallion™
Siren with 64 distinctly different siren sound combinations to set your
alarm apart from all others, full-time programming access (even while
you’re driving) to dozens of user-selectable features, and much, much more.
Yet despite all the sophistication, the IntelliGuard 700 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.

Your 4-button/12-channel remote controls
The 4-button/12-channel remote control is an ultra-sophisticated miniature radio transmitter powered by a tiny 12-volt battery. Range is up to 100 feet (up to 300 feet with the
optional ElectroLoop Antenna). Obstructions, electrical interference, weather conditions
or a weak battery will reduce range. Your 4-button/12-channel remote control is the key
to your IntelliGuard 700. It incorporates Clifford’s proprietary Anti-CodeGrabbing™
(ACG) technology with Random Code Generation for the ultimate in protection against
“code-grabbing” devices (see page 12). You will use your remote control to arm and
disarm the system, lock and unlock the doors, activate the panic feature, adjust sensor
sensitivity, control Remote QuickAccess features or command options such as a remote
trunk release, remote headlight activation, remote memory seat adjustment and even
remote starting of the engine and heater or air conditioner, among other available
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 control, we made it
easy: First, the button you
use the most — button 1 to arm, disarm, lock and unlock the doors — 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 lets you select channels 5–12:
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 11, press the LevelShift button
twice, then press button 3. While you transmit, you’ll notice that the LED blinks
three times, pauses, blinks three times, etc.: this indicates level 3.
To transmit either channel 1, 2, 3 or 4:
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).
8
What each button/channel does
Your IntelliGuard 700 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 19–21). The following chart indicates what each
remote control channel number does, and how to transmit each channel number.

AntiScan™
Thieves can disarm some other brands of car alarms with a “scanner” than rapidly
transmits one remote control code after another. Clifford’s AntiScan will detect any
scanner and block the codes it generates.
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 IntelliGuard system is disarmed
2
Your IntelliGuard system is armed
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 15)
3
Disarmed but there was an intrusion attempt while you were away
(see Smart Prior Intrusion Attempt on page 16)
4
Armed but the hood or trunk is ajar (see Smart AutoTesting on page 15)
10
UltraSecure™ Coded Valet Mode
Your secret valet code
Within seconds, thieves can disable all other alarm brands by hot-wiring the ignition and
flicking an easy to find “hidden” valet switch. Your IntelliGuard 700 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 a secret valet code on the
PlainView switch. 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).
Whenever the system is put in valet mode, all of the system’s security features are switched
off. At various times, you will need to switch the system off. For instance, when having your
car serviced, washed or parked by a valet.
NOTE: If you temporarily lose the use of your remote controls, you can disarm
the system by enabling valet mode.
Definitions
Digit: A digit is defined as any number from 1 to 9, inclusive.
Valet code: A valet code may be 1 to 3 digits:
A one-digit code=X=any number between 1-9
A two-digit code=XY=any number between 11-99 (excluding numbers with zeros)
A three-digit code=XYZ=any number between 111-999 (excluding numbers with zeros)
Remember, no code can have a zero.
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.
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,” then return the switch to its center position. If your code has
more than one digit, just repeat the above for each digit of your code, then return
the switch to its center position.
PlainView switch:
Currently, your factory-set valet code is the single digit “2.”
11
To enable valet mode
1. Turn the ignition switch to its “ON” position or start the engine.
2. Enter your secret valet code on the PlainView switch, then return the switch to its
center position.
3. You now have 3 seconds to press the latched position (valet mode). Once you have
entered valet mode, the system’s LED will glow continually for on-going visual
confirmation of valet mode.
Deluxe 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. The doors will unlock (as indicated by one
parking light flash) and the interior lights will illuminate. Press button 1 again and
the doors will lock (indicated by two flashes). You can also use the remote’s other
channels to activate options such as a remote trunk release or remote engine starting.
To exit valet mode
1. Turn the ignition switch to its “ON” position or start the engine.
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.
NOTE: You can even enable or exit valet mode with your remote control from
outside the vehicle! See the Remote QuickAccess section on page 14.
Setting your own secret valet code
Since all IntelliGuard systems have the same factory-set code, it is highly advisable that
you set your own valet code. You may choose any 1-, 2-, or 3-digit code that does not
have any zeros. You can also change your valet code whenever you want. Simply write
down the 1-to-3 digit code you wish to use (remember, no zeros in the code), then refer
to the User-selectable features section on page 19-21.
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 scanners (see page 10) that sequentially transmit one
digital code after another hoping one of them is the correct code to disarm the alarm (a
process that may take hours, days or even years depending on the alarm’s number of
codes), code-grabbers literally record, from hundreds of feet away, the code sent by your
car alarm remote control. A code-grabber will instantly duplicate any remote control
code, even if the remote has billions or trillions of codes. The thief simply waits for you
to arm your alarm with the remote control and walk away. Then he plays back the code,
instantly disarming your car’s alarm and unlocking the doors. It’s like giving the thief
your keys. All non-Clifford alarms can be defeated that easily. In contrast, IntelliGuard
systems use complex digital signal processing and unbreachable encryption to randomly
change the digital code every time you use the remote. Your remote will never transmit the
same code. Thus the code recorded and played back by the thief’s code-grabber will never
be accepted by your IntelliGuard 700. Only ACG can make a car alarm impervious to
code-grabbing, and only Clifford systems have ACG with Random Code Encryption.
12
Enhanced AutoArming™
If this feature is enabled and you forget to remotely arm your IntelliGuard 700, the
system will arm itself automatically (“passively”) 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. Your
IntelliGuard 700 includes all these additional Enhanced AutoArming features:
AutoArming enable/disable: If you prefer, you may deactivate or reactivate
the AutoArming feature. See User-selectable features on pages 19–21.
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.
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
silently disarm the system by starting the engine within 15 seconds of opening the
door. See User-selectable features on pages 19–21.
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 19–21.
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.
Electronically Programmable Dual-Zone Magnetic Resonance Sensor™
Your IntelliGuard 700’s Dual-Zone Magnetic Resonance Sensor has both a primary and
a secondary zone. The secondary “warning” zone can detect someone forcefully leaning
against your vehicle or another car tapping your parked vehicle’s bumper. When this
occurs, the system will sound with a distinctive one-second warning tone. However, if
there is any genuine intrusion-related tampering, the system will sound its full siren
blast for 30 or 60 seconds (whichever you select, see User-selectable features on pages
19–21). What’s more, you can adjust the sensitivity of each of the two sensor zones via
your remote control. Use the Remote QuickAccess method noted on page 14 or see
User-selectable features on pages 19–21. For an even greater level of security, consider
Clifford Electronics optional sensors: IntelliSensor 3-D™ (a digital analysis glass
tampering sensor) and the Proximity Sensor™ (an interior passenger-compartment radar
sensor that detects anyone reaching inside your vehicle; the Proximity Sensor is
especially recommended if you own a convertible, T-top, soft-top or other open-top
vehicle).
13
Remote QuickAccess™
Remote QuickAccess features permit you a quick and easy way of controlling, with just
the remote, the most commonly used features, namely: The valet mode, optional sensor
#2 override, and sensor adjustment. Now you can control these features any time you
wish from outside your vehicle with just your remote control. Here’s how:
QuickAccess Valet Mode: To enter valet mode remotely, transmit channel 9
(press the LevelShift button twice, then button 1). The parking lights will flash
twice and the dashboard LED will stay on to indicate the system is in valet mode.
To exit valet mode remotely, transmit channel 9 again and the system will
confirm exit of valet mode with one parking light flash and the LED will turn off.
(NOTE: If you enter valet mode via the remote control, you must exit valet mode
in the same manner. If you use the PlainView switch to enter valet mode, you
must use the switch to exit valet mode.)
QuickAccess Sensor #2 Override: This is a great convenience feature if you
have an optional Proximity Sensor passenger compartment sensor and need to
leave your pet in the vehicle. Within 10 seconds of remote arming, transmit
channel 10 (LevelShift twice, then button 2). The parking lights will flash four
times to confirm that the optional sensor #2 will not trip the system.
QuickAccess Sensor Testing & Adjustment: 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 your
IntelliGuard 700. You can adjust sensitivity electronically without tools and
without even knowing where the sensor is mounted! If you find the current
setting(s) of the Magnetic Resonance Sensor to be either too sensitive or not
sensitive enough, you may individually test and adjust the sensitivity settings
yourself. To do so, just use the following procedure:
1. Disarm the system, then select the zone you wish:
a. Primary zone: Transmit channel 11 (LevelShift twice, then button 3).
b.Warning zone: Transmit channel 12 (LevelShift twice, then button 4).
2. Test the current sensitivity setting by “thumping” the window pillar with your
fist. If the strike is strong enough to trigger the selected zone, you will hear a
chirp. Strike firmly when testing the primary zone, less firmly to trigger the
perimeter warning zone.
3. 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. Conversely, lower
tones confirm each decrease. Two normal tone chirps indicate minimum and
maximum sensitivity. There are 16 sensitivity levels for each of the two 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 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.

FACT™— False Alarm Control and Test
With FACT, you’ll never experience repeated false alarms. If the siren goes off, DO
NOT disarm the system; let it run for the full siren duration of 30 or 60 seconds
(user-selectable). Before sounding the siren a second time, the system automatically
checks for another activated trigger to verify that an intrusion is in progress. Should the
siren sound again, you will know for sure someone is tampering with your vehicle.
Fault-Proof™ starter interrupt
While the system is armed, the vehicle’s starter circuit is electronically disconnected.
Our Fault-Proof design ensures that you’ll be able to start the engine even in the
unlikely event of a system malfunction. Other, non-Clifford alarms may leave you
stranded.
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 issuing 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 receive the 4-chirp/4-flash signal
upon remote 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
Magnetic Resonance Sensor
2 blinks
Optional sensor
3 blinks*
Door trigger*
4 blinks
Trunk trigger
5 blinks
Hood trigger
* 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.
15
Automatic malfunction bypass
To provide the utmost protection even if a system component malfunctions, your
IntelliGuard 700 will automatically bypass any faulty point and arm all other triggers and
sensors until you can have the system serviced by your local Authorized Dealer.
Multiple-event TotalRecall™
The system’s non-volatile memory records the identity of the last eight activated or
malfunctioning triggers and/or sensors, which allows your installer to instantly track down
malfunctions and save you substantial servicing costs. To identify the triggers and/or sensors
held in the system’s non-volatile memory, simply perform 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 trigger or
sensor, pause, then blink 1–5 times to indicate the next most recently activated
trigger or sensor, and so on for the last 8 activations.
4. Write down the number of blinks between pauses and refer to the chart below:
Number of LED blinks per cycle
Trigger/sensor that was activated or malfunctioned
1 blink
Magnetic Resonance Sensor
2 blinks
Optional sensor
3 blinks
Door trigger
4 blinks
Trunk trigger
5 blinks
Hood trigger
Smart prior intrusion attempt alert
When you remotely disarm, if you hear three chirps and see three parking light flashes
(instead of the usual one and one) 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 below:
Number of LED blinks per cycle
Trigger/sensor that detected the intrusion attempt

High-output MultiSound Medallion™ Siren
All the electronics for the siren are built into the IntelliGuard 700’s control unit rather
than the siren itself. This protects the circuitry from engine heat, dirt and exposure to the
elements (in contrast, the electronics of other alarm companies’ sirens are part of the
siren itself and, therefore, far more susceptible to failure). In addition to greatly enhancing
long-term reliability, your IntelliGuard 700 also provides these additional features:
Personalized Siren Sounds: Most alarm sirens have a single “warble” tone. A
few offer “six-tone” sirens that either cannot be adjusted or require the physical
destruction of certain circuit wires in order to change the sounds (the change is
permanent and cannot be changed again). Your IntelliGuard 700 MultiSound
Medallion Siren circuitry is different. As shipped from the factory, the siren
sounds six different alarm sound patterns. However, you may turn any of the six
different alarm sound patterns on or off to create a different combination of sound
patterns. In all, there are 64 different combinations you may select. 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 19–21.
QuietChirps™: You can control the volume of the normal arm and disarm chirps.
As shipped from the factory, your IntelliGuard 700 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 19–21.
Long-term chirp silencing: Whenever you wish, you may choose to silence
your IntelliGuard 700 system’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
19–21.
Remote controlled chirp muting: Your IntelliGuard 700’s 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 the
system 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, then automatically reset itself. However, if you prefer, you
may change the siren duration cycle to 60 seconds. See the User-selectable
features section on pages 19–21.

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
Pause between flashes Either a malfunction (see Smart AutoTesting on page 15) or an intrusion was attempted
while you were away (see Smart prior intrusion attempt alert on page 16)
Smart Trunk Release Capability
Your IntelliGuard 700 has a built-in electronic interlock that automatically prevents
accidental activation of the remote trunk release option. If you have this option, you’ll note
that the system must be disarmed and the ignition must be off in order for you to remotely
pop the trunk with button 2 (channel 2). Transmitting channel 2 while the system is armed
will have no effect.
SmartPowerUp™ II
If power to the system control unit is ever removed, SmartPowerUp II ensures that the
system will automatically restore itself to its previous status when power is restored. So
if a thief tampers with the vehicle battery in an attempt to steal your car, the system will
automatically re-arm itself and immediately sound the siren. However, if your vehicle is
to be serviced by a mechanic, just put the system in valet mode. If the mechanic needs to
interrupt vehicle 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.
AutoLock/AutoUnLock™
For your safety and that of your passengers, the system automatically locks the doors when
you begin driving, and unlocks them when you turn off the ignition. If you prefer, you
may turn off this feature. See the User-selectable features section on pages 19–21.
18
User-selectable features
Your IntelliGuard 700 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 IntelliGuard 700 is so easy, 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 Matrix of
user-selectable features on the following page. To change any of the settings, use the
steps noted below. To restore the feature to its factory setting, just repeat the procedure:
1. Refer to the Matrix of user-selectable features and make note of the column number
and row number of the feature(s) you wish to program.
2. Insert your ignition key and turn it to the “ON” position, or start the engine (skip this
step if the engine is already running).
3. Enter your disarming code, then press and hold the PlainView switch to its
spring-loaded momentary side for about 3 seconds until you hear a siren chirp.
You’ll also notice that the system LED turns on to indicate that the system is in its
programming mode. The system is now in the “Feature Select” position: the top left
cell of the matrix. From this position, you will first select the feature column (from
left to right), then the feature row (from top to bottom).
4. Select the feature column: To select the column you wish, 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). After a
one-second 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: To select the feature’s row, immediately tap and release the
momentary side of the switch the same number of times as the feature’s row number.
You will hear a single chirp confirmation each time you press the momentary side to
help you count.
a. VERY IMPORTANT: If there is a NOTE number listed in the selected feature of
the matrix, perform the actions listed for that note. Once you have completed the
NOTE instructions, skip step 6 below and go to step 7.
6. After a one-second pause you will hear either one chirp to indicate that the feature
you selected is now turned off, or two chirps to indicate that the feature is now on (on
the siren duration feature, one chirp = 30 seconds, two = 60 seconds).
7. You have now completed the programming of the desired featured. You may select
another feature, or you may exit program mode:
a. To program another feature in that same column, you must repeat step 5 within the
next 3 seconds (if longer than 3 seconds, you will hear three chirps to indicate that
you are now 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 for 30 seconds and
the system will automatically exit programming mode by itself (indicated by 3
chirps and extinguishing of the LED).
The above may sound complicated, but it really isn’t. Briefly, here is all you do: Choose
the feature you want, enter program mode, select the feature’s column and row, then
turn off the ignition. That’s it! Try the examples on the following page.

to confirm the new duration.
NOTE 8: Immediately flip the switch to its latched position, then enter the new code
that you wish to use. Make sure to return the switch to its center position when
complete, then wait 3 seconds (you will hear two chirps when the system has accepted
the new code). Turn the ignition off. VERY IMPORTANT: You must immediately
test your new secret disarming/valet code: Turn the ignition on, 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. The system has
reverted to the previous code.
NOTE 7: Use the same procedure as NOTE 7, but strike the window pillar lightly.
main zone. Use remote control button 2 to increase sensitivity, button 4 to decrease it.
Higher and higher pitched tones confirm each sensitivity increase, lower and lower
tones confirm each decrease. Repeat until the sensor is set to the sensitivity you wish,
then press button 1 to record the new sensitivity level and exit sensor test/adjust mode
(you’ll hear 3 chirps to confirm this). You may now either arm the system with channel
1 or enter the vehicle.
✱ WARNING: If you have remote window and sunroof closure, DO NOT CHANGE THIS SETTING: it requires installer-only adjustment. Changing the duration may cause damage.
NOTE 1: Transmit channel 1 (or other channel of your choosing) of the new remote
control. You will hear two chirps to indicate that the code has been accepted and
recorded.
NOTE 2: Transmit channel 2 (or other channel of your choosing) of the new remote
control. You will hear two chirps to indicate that the code has been accepted and
recorded.
NOTE 3: Transmit channel 3 (or other channel of your choosing) of the new remote
control. You will hear two chirps to indicate that the code has been accepted and
recorded.
NOTE 4: Transmit channel 4 (or other channel of your choosing) of the new remote
control. You will hear two chirps to indicate that the code has been accepted and
recorded.
NOTE 5: When you hear the two chirps, all remote control codes will have been erased
from system memory. You must now add the new and/or existing remote controls to
the system (i.e., program channels 1–5 of each remote that will be used with your
IntelliGuard 700 system).
NOTE 6: Turn off the ignition and exit the vehicle. Firmly “thump” the window pillar
with the side of your fist. You should hear a chirp to confirm activation of the sensor’s

EXAMPLE 1: Turn off siren sound number 2:
1. Look for the siren’s sound number 2 location on the Matrix.
2. The location is at the intersection of column 1 and row 2. Note the column and row
numbers.
3. With the ignition on, enter you disarming code on the PlainView valet switch, then hold
the switch in its momentary position until you hear a chirp and see the LED turn on.
4. Select feature column 1 by pressing the switch to its latched position, then back to
center. After a brief pause, you’ll hear 1 chirp to indicate column 1.
5. Press and release the momentary side twice. You’ll hear a total of two chirps to
indicate that you selected the feature in row 2 of that column.
6. After a brief pause, you’ll hear a single chirp to indicate that sound #2 is now off.
7. Turn the ignition off (you’ll hear 3 chirps) and you’re done!
If you wish to turn siren sound 2 back on, simply repeat steps 1–7.
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. This time, you’ll hear
the appropriate chirp confirmations, but we won’t make note of them in the instructions
below:
1. Enter program mode (step 3 above).
2. Latched, center to select column 1.
3. Four momentaries, (wait for the one-chirp “feature off” confirmation), then 6
momentaries to jump to row number 6.
4. Four latched-center presses to select column 4.
5. One momentary, (wait for the two-chirp “feature on” confirmation), then turn the
ignition off and you’re done.
You just changed the settings of three different features. It’s so easy, you could even do it
while driving. To set all three features back to their factory settings, just repeat steps 1-5.
Adding new remote controls
For other drivers in your family, or if you wish to control IntelliGuard systems on your
other cars with the same remote control, you can buy additional remote controls from
any Clifford Dealer (or call our 24-hour Customer Service Department at 800-824-3208)
and program them into the system yourself. Each IntelliGuard 700 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 19–21.
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
the system memory to make sure that the missing remote control can never be used to
disarm your system. To do so, use the “Erase all channels” feature (feature column 2,
row 5 on the Matrix of user-selectable features on pages 20–21). This will clear all
remote control codes from the system memory. Then simply program each remaining
and/or replacement remote control as noted in the Adding new remote controls section
above.
