NOTE: Your system MUST be installed by an Authorized Clifford Dealer in accordance with the in structions we sup ply
them. The sys tem is intended for automobiles with a 12- volt battery and gasoline- or diesel-powered en gine. Other
than the re mote con trols, this system has no user-serviceable parts. Your Authorized Clifford Dealer can correct any
sys tem wir ing prob lems and, if ever needed, can return any malfunctioning com ponent to Clifford Electronics for
repair/replacement under the warranty terms and conditions noted in this manual.
Your Clifford system requires no maintenance except for periodic replacement of the remote control batteries. This product, like any electrical device in
your vehicle, requires your car battery be in proper working order and fully charged. To ensure proper operation, periodically have your vehicle battery
“load-checked” at any local garage/mechanic. Also make sure the battery cables and connections are tight and free from corrosion.
Welcome to the world of
high-technology vehicle security and convenience
ongratulations on the purchase of your Clifford Electronics mobile security/convenience system. Clifford Electronics has long been recognized as the
leading manufacturer of high-technology vehicle security systems. Our commitment to technological innovation, quality and reliability is clearly evident
in your Clifford system. Yet despite all its sophistication, your system is amazingly easy to use, never more difficult than a few presses of a button.
Your remote controls
The two 3-button remote controls are sophisticated miniature radio transmitters each powered by a 3-volt lithium battery. A weak remote control battery
will reduce range (the system will warn you if the battery in your remote is nearing the end of its useful life, see the Low battery warning section for details).
Electrical/radio frequency interference, obstructions, weather conditions and even sunspots can interrupt the signal from your remote to the system. The
remote controls are the keys to your system. But these remote controls are much more secure than car keys because each incorporates our ACG 2
(Anti-CodeGrabbing 2) technology with trillions of digital codes for the ultimate protection against remote control cloning devices. You will use your Arrow 3
remote control to arm and disarm the system, lock and unlock the doors, activate/deactivate the panic feature, enable/exit valet mode and command options
such as a remote trunk release, power window control, electric garage door interface or even remote starting of the engine and heater or air conditioner,
among other options.
Remotely controlling your Clifford system
Press button
. Upon arming: two siren chirps, two parking light flashes, dashboard LED flashes repeatedly and doors lock.
Press button
. Upon disarming: one chirp, one parking light flash, LED turns off, doors unlock and the interior lights turn on.
Simultaneously press both the
For three seconds, continually press button
. The parking lights will flash repeatedly and the siren will blare for 30 seconds
(American model) or until you press the button again (European model). If the ignition is on (indicating you are in the car), the
doors will automatically lock to prevent an assailant from entering (note: some vehicles are unable to lock the doors while the
ignition is on). If the ignition is off, the doors will unlock, allowing you to enter immediately without fumbling with your keys.
If you have this option, press button
If you have this option, press button ✱ to remotely start the engine (or shut it down if idling under the control of IntelliStart 4).
Before remote starting, be sure to see the Remote Engine Starting DOs and DON’Ts noted in the IntelliStart 4 user’s manual.
Simultaneously press buttons
button and the ✱ button to arm or disarm without chirp acknowledgments.
while the system is in its disarmed state.
and ✱ to enable/exit valet mode (see page 5 for information on valet mode).
TO REMOTELY OPEN If you have this option, press buttons
after disarming to fully open the windows controlled by SmartWindows 4.
OR VENT WINDOWS: On hot days, press this button combination right after arming to vent the windows slightly while the system remains armed.
ACG 2 (Anti-CodeGrabbing 2™)
ACG 2 protects you and your automobile from code-grabbing devices. Code-grabbers literally record, from hundreds of feet away, the code sent by your
car alarm remote control (code-grabbers are very similar to, but simpler than, cellphone “cloning” devices). The thief then plays back the code when
you’re gone, instantly disarming the alarm and unlocking the doors. It’s like leaving your keys and remote in the door. Many non-Clifford alarms can be
defeated that easily, and some of the latest “smart” code-grabbers can even decipher the code hopping/jumping sequence used by other car alarm
manufacturers. In contrast, your Arrow 3 uses complex digital signal processing and unbreachable code encryption to randomly change the digital code
every time you use the remote control. Your remotes will never transmit the same code twice, and the control unit will never accept the same code twice.
Thus the code played back by the code-grabber — even the latest generation smart code-grabbers — will never be accepted by your Arrow 3 system.
Automatic remote control low-battery warning
If your remote control battery is low, you’ll hear a rapid 5-chirp sequence when you disarm instead of the usual one chirp (with the Self-Powered SmartSiren 4
option, you’ll hear a low-pitched chirp). Replacement batteries are available from any Authorized Clifford Dealer.
Remote control battery replacement
Replacement of a remote control battery is simple, but any Authorized Clifford Dealer will be happy to do it for you without cost provided that you buy
the replacement battery at their shop (it’s a good idea to keep a spare battery in your glove box just in case).
1. Insert a small, thin screwdriver blade in the slot near the keyring opening (you may leave the keyring in place) and turn it to separate the two halves.
2. Remove the old battery noting the + and – indications and replace it with the new one.
3. Put the enclosure back together by first aligning the top of the remote, then snapping the case back together at the bottom.
Adding new remote controls
For other drivers, or to control Clifford G4 systems on your other cars with the same remote, you can buy additional remote controls from any Clifford
Dealer (or direct from the Customer Service Department of your nearest Clifford Headquarters listed on the front cover) and program them into the
system yourself. Arrow 3 will respond to as many as four remote controls.
NOTE: Clifford G4 systems will respond only to G4-type ACG 2 re mote con trols. Older Clifford ACG and non-ACG
re mote con trols are not com patible with G4 systems.
To add a new remote control to the system, use the Add new remote feature (column 1, row 1) of the User-selectable features section.
User-Selectable AutoArming™
If this feature is enabled and you forget to remotely arm, the system automatically arms 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 restarts the 30-second delay from the beginning after all doors are
closed. Arrow 3 has these additional features:
n AutoArming entry delay: If you temporarily lose the use of your remote controls, you may turn on the AutoArming entry delay feature. If this
feature and AutoArming are turned on, it allows you to enter the car (if it previously AutoArmed) and silently disarm the system by turning on the
ignition within 15 seconds of opening the door. See User-selectable features (column 3, row 3).
n Visual acknowledgment: Five seconds after you exit, close all the doors and the interior light has turned off, the indicator lights flash twice to
confirm the AutoArming countdown is progressing. Then, 25 seconds later, the system will AutoArm.
n Lock upon AutoArming: 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.
n Instant AutoArming bypass: Prevents AutoArming when fueling the vehicle and at 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 siren chirp to confirm
that the system will not AutoArm. The system automatically reverts to its normal operating mode when you next start the engine.
PlainView 2 Coded Valet Mode
All car alarms have a valet mode that turn off the security features. This mode is often used to turn off the alarm if the system is not responding to the
remote. However, thieves can disable other alarm brands by simply hotwiring the ignition and flicking the alarm’s easy-to-find “hidden” valet switch.
In contrast, your Arrow 3 system has safeguards that ensure a thief cannot enable the valet mode as a way of “turning off” your system. To enable valet
mode, the driver must first enter the secret valet code on the PlainView 2 switch mounted on your vehicle’s dash or console. When the system is in valet
mode, it overrides AutoArming and all other security features. At various times, you will need to switch the system off. For instance, when refueling or
washing your car.
The system’s factory-set valet code is 2: ✱✱ blank.
NOTE: If you temporarily lose the use of your remote controls, you can disarm the system by enabling valet mode.
Entering a code
To enter your code, press the ✱ button the appropriate number of times on the PlainView 2 switch followed by the blank button. To enter a zero, you
simply press the blank button.
EX AM PLE: To enter a code of 1203, you would press: ✱ blank, ✱✱ blank, blank, ✱✱✱ blank.
To enable valet mode
1. Turn the ignition switch to its “ON” position or start the engine if it is not already running.
2. Enter your valet code on the PlainView 2 switch.
3. Continue pressing the blank button for 4 seconds. Release the button. The LED will continue to remain on for ongoing visual confirmation of valet
To exit valet mode and restore normal operation
1. Turn the ignition switch to its “ON” position or start the engine if it is not already running.
2. Enter your valet code on the PlainView 2 switch. The LED will turn off.
How to set your own secret valet code
You may choose any 1-4-digit code, but the first digit must not be a zero (e.g., 1023 is a valid code, 0123 is not). See User-selectable features.
Let’s say you want to set a valet code of 4301:
1. From the Table of user-selectable features, you would note that the Set a new secret valet code feature is in column 2, row 7.
2. Enter program mode by turning on the ignition, entering your current code, then pressing and holding the ✱ button of the PlainView 2 switch for 3
seconds until you hear a chirp.
3. Select column 2 by pressing the blank button twice. After a brief pause, you will hear 2 chirps to confirm that you have selected feature column 2.
4. Within 5 seconds, select row 7 by pressing and releasing the ✱ button 7 times. To help you count, you will hear a chirp each time you press the ✱
button. After 7 presses, immediately press the blank button, then immediately enter your new code.
Example: To enter 4301 as your new code, you would press the switch buttons in this manner: ✱✱✱✱ blank, ✱✱✱
blank, blank, ✱ blank.
5. Wait for the 2-chirp confirmation.
6. Turn off the ignition to exit program mode (you’ll hear a 3-chirp confirmation).
7. VERY IMPORTANT: You must immediately test your new secret valet code: Turn on the ignition, enter your new code, then press and hold the
blank button for 4 seconds. The LED will illuminate to indicate that the system is in valet mode. Turn the ignition off. The system is now in valet mode.
If the LED does not illuminate, 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.
8. To exit valet mode and return to normal operation, turn the ignition on and enter your code.
Remote Controlled Valet Mode
Valet mode turns off all security features and prevents AutoArming when, for instance, having your car washed. To turn valet mode on/off, simultaneously
press the ✱ and
buttons. Two parking light flashes confirm valet mode on, one flash confirms valet mode off. The dashboard LED will glow
continuously when valet mode is on. Your system remains in valet mode until you again press the ✱ and
buttons to turn it off and restore normal
operation. This is a user-selectable feature and may be programmed off if you wish to use this button combination for a different function.
False Alarm Prevention & FACT™
With FACT (False Alarm Control and Test), you’ll never experience repeated false alarms. If the siren sounds, DO NOT disarm; allow it to run for the
full siren duration. Before sounding the siren a second time, the system automatically checks for another activated sensor or trigger to verify that an
intrusion is in progress. This feature is user-selectable.
Starter AutoImmobilization
While armed, your system immobilizes the starter to prevent a thief from starting the engine. The engine will remain immobilized even if a thief were to
cut power to the system or find and remove the system control unit.
EC compliance in Europe only: Unlike the AutoArming feature noted above, AutoImmobilization occurs 30 seconds
after turning off the ignition regardless of opening/closing the doors. When you remotely disarm, you have 30
seconds to start the engine. If more than 30 seconds pass, AutoImmobilization occurs, as indicated by the LED
repeatedly flashing (but at a slower than normal “armed” rate). If AutoImmobilization occurs, use the remote
control to arm and then disarm or use the engine restart feature below.
Optional Wireless Immobilizer™
Clifford’s optional Wireless Immobilizer interrupts a second point in the vehicle, such as the ignition or fuel pump. This Clifford innovation provides
immobilization without any wires to the control unit, so a thief could not find the Wireless Immobilizer even if he tried tracing the system wires!
Operation of the Wireless Immobilizer is automatic and user-transparent.
BE sure to keep the record your Clifford installer provides as to the location of the Wireless Immobilizer in case your
vehicle needs future servicing.
NOTE: If your vehicle’s engine ever stalls, the Wireless Immobilizer WILL engage. You must turn the ignition all the
way to “OFF” in order to restart.
Engine Restart Feature: Europe only
In compliance with EC requirements, the AutoImmobilization will automatically engage thirty seconds after shutting down the engine. Thus
AutoImmobilization may occur while waiting for a train to pass or other delay. To restart:
1. Turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position.
2. Press button
3. You may now start the engine.
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
System is disarmed and in normal operating mode (i.e., valet mode is off)
Valet mode is on, the vehicle may be entered without having to disarm
Flashing rapidly (ignition off)
Flashing slowly
Flashes, pause, flashes
System is armed and protecting your vehicle
System is disarmed but the Starter AutoImmobilisation has been engaged (European models only)
Either an error (such as arming with the trunk open) or indicates the trigger or sensor that was tripped
Automatic Battery-Saving Mode
To conserve vehicle battery power (the LED actually 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.
User-Selectable AutoLock and AutoUnLock™
Some vehicles are incompatible with the AutoLock and AutoUnLock features.
For your safety and that of your passengers, the doors automatically lock the instant you turn on the ignition. When you turn the ignition off,
AutoUnLock automatically unlocks the doors. These are user-selectable features.
Smart trunk release option
If you have this option, you may use the
button to remotely release the trunk latch. The system’s electronic interlock prevents unintentional activation
of the remote trunk release when you drive, or when the system is armed. The Smart Trunk Release feature requires installer programming, so if you have
the optional trunk release installed, you may want to verify that it will NOT activate when the system is armed. If it can be activated while armed, causing the
alarm to sound, please return to your installing Clifford Dealer and have them correct this (it only takes a couple minutes and there will be no charge to you).
Piezo Sensor
This sensor detects theft-related vibrations/ impacts and triggers the alarm. If needed, sensitivity can be readjusted by any Authorized Clifford Dealer
(preferably your installing dealer). To prevent falsing, system sensor(s) are bypassed when the engine is remotely started (if you have the IntelliStart 4
option). Ask your Authorized Clifford Dealer about the optional dual-zone (full alarm and light-impact warning tone) model of this sensor and other
optional sensors that will further enhance the security of your vehicle, such as:
n Glass Tampering Sensor: Today’s thieves shatter vehicle windows with a small metal punch device that does not create any vibrations for an
impact sensor to detect. The Glass Tampering Sensor detects the sound of glass breaking, and glass tampering attempts, and will trigger the alarm.
n Digital Dual-Zone Proximity Sensor 4: Detects movement inside the passenger compartment and very near the vehicle. If a thief were to lean
into the passenger compartment, the primary zone of this sensor would trigger the full alarm. However, if a thief was lingering very close to your
windows, a warning tone would sound. Since it can “see” through glass and canvas, this sensor is particularly well suited for use in convertibles and
other open or soft-sided vehicles (targa, T-top and Jeep-like vehicles).
n Digital Tilt/Motion Sensor: Detects less than one degree of lifting or any minute motion of the vehicle while completely ignoring all other
conditions that falsely set off all other sensors. Even if you park on a hill, the Digital Tilt/Motion Sensor will accurately respond to the first hint of
tampering to reliably protect your wheels and entire vehicle.
High-Output Siren
n Remote siren silencing: If triggered by a non-threatening event, you can silence the siren without remotely disarming. Press button
the siren is sounding. Two chirps confirm that the sensor activated the alarm and the system is remaining armed. Four chirps confirm that the
system is still armed, but that the ignition is on or the hood, trunk or a door is open and that this may indeed be a genuine theft attempt.
n Automatic noise abatement: Alarm sounding is limited to five siren duration cycles even if a door is left open in the wake of an intrusion.
n Long-term chirp silencing: You may silence the arm and disarm chirps on a long-term basis until you decide to restore them. Your vehicle’s
parking light flashes will continue to provide visual confirmation of remote controlled system arming and disarming. See User-selectable features.
n Selectable siren duration (non-European models only*): You may change the factory set 30-second siren duration to 60 or 90 seconds via
the programming procedure or via the CliffNet Wizard software. See User-selectable features.
n Personalized Siren Sounds (requires the Self-Powered SmartSiren 4 option) (non-European models only*): The optional
Self-Powered SmartSiren 4 sounds six different alarm sounds. You may turn any of the six sounds on or off via User-selectable features programming
to create a different combination of sound patterns. 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 (column 1, row 2). What’s more, with the optional CliffNet Wizard software and DataPort Replicator Cable, you
may select up to six sounds from more than a dozen different siren sound choices for truly unique customization.
n Choose when your Personalized Siren Sounds* play: You may choose to have your Personalized Siren Sounds “play” every time the alarm
is set off, or you may set the system to sound them only upon trigger activation. When set to “trigger only” the basic siren wail will sound if a
sensor is activated, but the Personalized Siren Sounds will play if the hood, trunk or a door is opened. See User-selectable features (column 1, row 3).
*Not available on European models in compliance with EC95/56
Smart AutoTesting™
Each time you remotely arm the system, it tests all triggers and sensors. If the hood or trunk is open, the system will immediately sound 4 chirps and 4
indicator light flashes instead of the usual 2 and 2. If a door is ajar, you’ll receive 2 chirps and 2 flashes, then, 5 seconds later, there will be 4 chirps and 4
flashes. 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 warn ing indication, you will hear the 4 chirps even if you use the chirp muting fea ture.
n 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 flashes in one cycle between pauses (for your convenience, the flash cycle repeats a total of 5 times) and refer to the chart below:
LED flashes
1 flash
Activation of optional sensor
2 flashes
Activation of Piezo Sensor
4 flashes*
Door open/ajar
5 flashes
Trunk/hood open/ajar (trunk only if you have the IntelliStart 4 option)
6 flashes
Hood open/ajar (only if you have the IntelliStart 4 option)
7 flashes
Ignition switch was turned on while the system was armed
8 flashes
Three or more incorrect valet codes were entered
10 flashes
Power tampering or the vehicle battery is very low
* 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 with AutoReMonitoring™
The system automatically bypasses any faulty point and arms all other triggers and sensors for the utmost possible protection. If you accidentally arm with
the hood, trunk or a door open, just close it (no need to disarm-and-rearm) and the system will again monitor that point.
Smart prior intrusion attempt alert
If you hear three chirps when you disarm, it means that a trigger or sensor was activated in your absence. When you turn on the ignition, the LED will flash 1-8
times, pause, then repeat the flash cycle 4 more times. Count the flashes in one cycle and refer to the chart above.
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. Remotely arm and disarm while pressing the blank button on the PlainView 2 switch.
2. The LED will flash 1-10 times to indicate the most recently activated point, pause, flash 1-10 times to indicate the second most recently activated
point, and so on.
3. Write down the number of flashes between pauses and refer to the chart above.
With the optional CliffNet Wizard, you’ll see this chronological report right on screen.
SmartPowerUp™ 2
If power is removed, SmartPowerUp 2 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 continuing to immobilize the
starter. If your vehicle is to be serviced by a mechanic, just put the system in valet mode. 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.
Optional CliffNet Wizard™ & DataPort Interface Connector
If you opted to have the Clifford DataPort interface connector installed with your system, you can use our CliffNet Wizard software to access your system
through your Windows PC. CliffNet Wizard will show you, on your PC screen, all your user-programmable feature settings. You can change settings
simply by mouse-clicking the graphical button for each feature. You can customize features, add or delete remote controls, change remote control button
assignments, view a chronological history of trigger and sensor activations, and much more. It’s actually fun! And secure. To learn more and download
this free software, go to
User-selectable features
You may set many of the features to your own preferences. Once you’ve changed a few settings, you’ll find that programming the system is so easy that
you can even do it while driving. The system comes with all of its features preprogrammed as noted by the bold type in the Table of user-selectable features. To
change any of the settings, use the steps noted below. To restore the feature to its factory setting, just repeat the procedure.
NOTE: For greater programming ease and even more system control, consider the CliffNet Wizard Windows PC
software interface:
How to change a user-selectable feature:
Briefly, here’s how it will work:
• You will pick a feature from the following Table of User-Selectable Features, noting the feature’s column and row numbers.
• You’ll enter program mode by entering your valet code and pressing the ✱ button of the dash- or console-mounted PlainView 2
switch until you hear a chirp.
• Press the blank PlainView 2 switch button the same number of times as the column number, then the ✱ button a number of
times equal to the row number.
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
2. Turn the ignition on, or start the engine (skip this step if the engine is running).
3. Enter your valet code, then press and hold the ✱ button of the PlainView 2 switch for about 4 seconds until you hear a siren chirp.
4. Select the feature column: Press and release the blank button of the PlainView 2 switch the same number of times as the column number you wish.
Pause. You will hear the same number of chirps as the column number, audibly confirming your selection.
5. Select the feature row: Press and release the ✱ button the same number of times as the row number. You’ll will hear a chirp each time you press to help
you count.
NOTE: You have 5 seconds to en ter 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 60 seconds, the system
will exit program mode.
6. Pause. You will hear either one or two chirps: Two chirps = ON, one chirp = OFF (If there is a NOTE for the selected feature, perform the actions
NOTE: Some fea tures, such as AutoStart (column 2, row 4) used with the optional IntelliStart 4 accessory, have
multiple settings. Sim ply reselect the feature ad ditional times to prog ress through each possible setting.
7. You may now select another feature or exit program mode:
a. To select another feature in that same column, repeat step 5 within the next 5 seconds (after 5 seconds, 3 chirps mean you are back to 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). If driving, just wait 60 seconds and the system
will automatically exit program mode.
If you make an error, just turn off the ig nition and start again.
EXAMPLE: Turn on Lock upon AutoArming and turn off Remote Valet Mode and FACT:
In the following example, we will change the settings of three different features in just one programming session: We will turn on the Lock upon
AutoArming feature to set your vehicle’s power locks to automatically engage whenever the system AutoArms, turn off remote controlled valet mode and
turn off the FACT anti-falsing feature:
1. Enter program mode as previously noted (ignition on, enter your valet code, press and hold the ✱ button on the PlainView 2 switch until
you hear a chirp).
2. Since the Lock upon AutoArming feature is in column 3, row 2 of the Table, go to column 3 by pressing the blank button on the PlainView 2
switch three times. Wait for the 3-chirp/column 3 confirmation. Then press the ✱ button twice (you’ll hear a chirp each time you press the
✱ button). After a brief pause, you’ll hear 2 chirps to confirm that Lock upon AutoArming is now on.
3. Since FACT is also in column 3, there is no need to reselect column 3. Therefore, you can go straight to the row selection. Select row 4 by
pressing the ✱ button four times. After a brief pause, you’ll hear one chirp to confirm that FACT is now off.
4. You’ll note that the Remote valet mode feature is at column 2, row 3. To change to column 2, press the blank button twice, then wait for the
2-chirp/column 2 confirmation. Press the ✱ button three times to select row 3. After a brief pause, you’ll hear one chirp to confirm that the
Remote valet mode feature is now turned off.
5. To exit the program mode, turn the ignition off. You’ll hear 3 chirps to confirm program mode exit.
Reset All Features
If you wish to reset all the user-selectable features to their normal factory presets, you can do so simply by choosing the Reset all features selection (column
1, row 7) on the Table of User-Selectable Features. If you do so, all features — except the programmed remote controls and your valet code — will be reset
to the factory settings that are indicated in BOLD type on the Table of User-Selectable Features . To reset all remote controls, use the Clear all remotes feature
