Using Your XL2OOO Security System
4-Button/8-Channel Remote Control
The 4-button/8-channel remote control is a miniature radio transmitter with a range
of up to 100 feet. Obstructions, interference or a weak battery will reduce the range.
The remote control is the key to your security system. It is a user-friendly device
that transmits eight distinct and unique digital codes: channels 1-4 with the red
slide switch in the up position, and channels 5-8 with the switch down. Use it to
arm or disarm the system, lock or unlock the doors, activate its panic feature or
control options such as headlight activation and remote trunk release.
TO ARM
THE SYSTEM. . . . . .
Press button I (switch up) once. You will hear two chirps and
the parking lights will flash twice. The dashboard LED will
flash repeatedly and the car doors will automatically lock. Any
attempt to break into the vehicle will immediately disable the
starter, sound the six-sound siren and flash the parking lights.
TO DISARM
THE SYSTEM. . . . . .
Press button I (switch up) again. One chirp and one flash of
the parking lights will confirm disarming. In addition, the car
doors will automatically unlock and the interior lights will
turn on and stay on for 30 seconds or until you start the engine.
TO SILENTLY
ARM OR DISARM
THE SYSTEM. . . . . .
Press button III(switch up) . The system will arm or disarm
with the indications noted above except the chirps.
TO ACTIVATE
THE PANIC
FEATURE. . . . . . . . .
Press button I (switch up) for 3 seconds. The lights will flash
repeatedly and the six-sound siren will blare for 30 or 60 seconds
(user-selectable), or until you press button I again to turn it off.
TO ACTIVATE AN
OPTION WHEN
THE ALARM IS
ARMED . . . . . . . . . .
Button II (switch up) controls an electronic interlock that allows you to separately command two different options: one
when your system is armed and another when it is disarmed.
For instance, pressing button II while the alarm is armed will
either:
★ Turn on the headlights for any duration you wish between 1 second and 2.5
minutes (factory setting is 30 seconds; to change duration, see User-Selectable Features on pages 9-10) OR . . .
★ Fully close all the power windows and sunroof on various Jaguar, BMW and
Volkswagen vehicles.
3
TO ACTIVATE AN
OPTION WHEN
THE ALARM IS
DISARMED . . . . . . .
As previously noted, button II (switch up) can control another
option when the system is disarmed. This is most commonly
used for an optional remote trunk release.
TO ACTIVATE AN
OPTION
REGARDLESS OF
ALARM STATE . . . . .
Button IV (switch up) and I-IV with the switch down, may activate another remote controlled option, such as the Clifford IntelliStart™ (remote engine starter accessory), electric garage
door or another Clifford-equipped vehicle.
How to Interpret the Chirps and Parking Light Flashes
When you press the remote control buttons, the system will respond with chirps (unless
you have the chirp muting feature turned on) and flashes the parking lights to indicate
the system status. The meaning of these chirp/flash acknowledgments is as follows:
Chirps and flashes
Meaning
1
Alarm is disarmed
2
Alarm is armed
2 and then 4
Armed and there is a sensor malfunction (see Smart AutoTesting)
3
Alarm is disarmed and there was an intrusion attempt (see Smart Prior Intrusion Attempt)
4
Armed and there is a trigger malfunction (see Smart AutoTesting)
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
On
Secured valet mode
Flashing
System is armed
Pause between flashes
Either a malfunction or an intrusion was attempted
Headlight Reminder
If you turn the ignition off and open your door without having turned off the
headlights, you will be reminded to turn them off with four chirps. (Since this is a
warning, you will hear the chirps even if you have the chirp muting feature turned
on.) If you prefer, you may turn off the Headlight Reminder feature. See the
User-Selectable Features section on pages 9-10.
4
Secured Valet Mode
Whenever the alarm is put in secured valet mode, all of the alarm functions are
bypassed since it prevents AutoArming and accidental activation of the alarm.
You should use the valet mode whenever your car is either to be serviced by
mechanics, handed over to car wash personnel or driven by valet attendants. It
also comes in handy if you ever lose your remote control or its battery dies. If you
have the AutoArming feature set on, when fueling your car, either put the alarm in
valet mode or leave the driver’s door open (the system will not AutoArm if a door
is open). Be sure to ask your installer to show you where the valet switch is
located.
To turn ON the secured valet mode:
1. Insert your ignition key and turn it to the “ON” position, or start the engine.
2. Flip the valet switch.
3. The LED will glow continuously to indicate that the alarm is in secured
valet mode.
To turn OFF the secured valet mode:
1. Insert your ignition key and turn it to the “ON” position, or start the engine.
2. Flip the valet switch.
3. The LED will turn off to indicate that the alarm is in normal operating mode.
Keyless Entry in Valet Mode: Even if valet mode “on”, you will still be able
to remotely control all the convenience features. For instance, simply press button I as if you were arming or disarming and your car’s doors will lock or unlock. You can also use buttons II and IV to activate other options.
Enhanced AutoArming™
If you forget to remotely arm the system, it will arm itself automatically (“passively”)
30 seconds after the vehicle doors are closed. If you re-open any door(s) within the
30-second countdown, AutoArming will restart from the beginning once all doors
are closed. This ensures you’ll never accidentally leave your vehicle unprotected.
XL2000 includes all these Enhanced AutoArming features:
AutoArming Enable/Disable: If you prefer, you may deactivate or reactivate
AutoArming. To do, see User-Selectable Features on pages 9-10.
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 9-10.
NOTE: To prevent AutoArming of the system when fueling the vehicle, either
enable valet mode or leave one of the doors open (the system AutoArms 30
seconds after all doors are closed).
5
Smart AutoTesting™
Each time you remotely arm your vehicle, it will perform a series of tests on all
triggers and sensors. If a trigger malfunction is found, you will be visually and
audibly alerted immediately with 4 chirps and flashes instead of the usual 2. If a
sensor is malfunctioning, you will receive the usual 2 chirps and flashes, then, a
few seconds later, there will be 4 chirps and flashes.
Specific Malfunction Identification: The system not only tells you if the problem is a trigger or sensor, but it can also indicate the specific trigger or sensor
that is malfunctioning. This feature saves you time and money since your installer won’t have to spend hours trying to determine where the problem is.
Here’s how it works:
1. You receive the 4-chirp/4-flash signal upon remote disarming.
2. The LED indicator inside the vehicle will be flashing, pause, then repeat.
3. Count the number of blinks in one cycle between pauses (for your convenience, the blink cycle repeats 5 times) and refer to the chart below:
Number of LED blinks between pauses
Malfunction
1 blink
Vibration/impact sensor or optional sensor
2 blinks
Door trigger
3 blinks
Trunk or hood trigger
Automatic Malfunction Bypass
To provide the utmost protection even if a system component malfunctions, the
system will automatically bypass the faulty point and arm all other triggers and
sensors until you can have the system serviced by your local Authorized Dealer.
TotalRecall™
The system’s non-volatile memory records the identity of the last activated or
malfunctioning trigger or sensor, which allows your installer to instantly track down a
malfunction and save you servicing costs. To identify the trigger or sensor held in
the system’s non-volatile memory, simply perform the following procedure:
1. With the ignition OFF, flick the valet switch to one side.
2. Press button I to “arm” the system, then again to “disarm.”
3. The LED will blink several times, pause, then repeat the blink cycle 4 times.
4. Count the number of blinks in one cycle and refer to the chart that follows:
Number of LED blinks per cycle
Trigger/Sensor that Last Activated or Malfunctioned
1 blink
Magnetic Resonance Sensor
2 blinks
Door trigger
3 blinks
Trunk or hood trigger
6
FACT™— False Alarm Control and Test
With FACT, you’ll never experience repeated false alarms. If your six-sound siren
goes off, DO NOT remotely disarm the system while the siren sounds; allow it to
run for the full siren duration. Before sounding the siren a second time, the system
automatically checks for another activated trigger. Should the siren sound again,
you will know for sure that someone is tampering with your vehicle. (To disable
FACT, see User-Selectable Features on pages 9-10.)
Dual-Mode Tampering Warning
Normally, the system immediately sounds its six-sound siren at the first inkling of
an intrusion attempt. However, you may set the system to issue a rapid five-chirp
warning whenever the system detects tampering to the exterior of your vehicle. If
there is any further tampering within the next 30 seconds, or if a door, the hood or
trunk is opened at any time, your system will sound a continuous 125dB
six-sound siren blast. To select the mode of your choice, see User-Selectable
Features on pages 9-10.
NOTE:Turning on the Tampering Warning feature overrides the FACT feature, and vice-versa.
Smart Prior Intrusion Attempt Alert
When you remotely disarm, if you hear 3 chirps instead of the usual one chirp it
means that a trigger or sensor was activated in your absence. When you enter the
vehicle, the LED will blink several 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 after disarming
Trigger/Sensor Activated
1 blink
Magnetic Resonance Sensor
2 blinks
Door trigger
3 blinks
Trunk or hood trigger
AutoLock/AutoUnLock
For your safety and that of your passengers, the system automatically locks the doors
when you turn on the ignition switch to start the engine and unlocks them once the
ignition is turned off. If you prefer, you may turn off the AutoLock/AutoUnLock
feature. See the User-Selectable Features section on pages 9-10.
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 9-10.
7
AntiScan
Car thieves use electronic scanners that rapidly transmit one remote control code
after another to defeat ordinary alarms. AntiScan prevents scanners from
disarming your system.
Automatic Fault-Proof Starter Interrupt
The system automatically prevents engine starting while the system is armed but
allows you to start it even in the unlikely event of a full system failure (other
manufacturer’s alarms may leave you stranded).
Multi-Level Chirp Control
Whenever you wish, you may lower the volume or completely silence the system’s
arm/disarm chirps. The short-term and one-time chirp muting capabilities are
especially valuable when parking late at night in a quiet residential area. You have
several choices:
Chirp Volume Control: Lets you lower the volume of the chirps or restore
them to full volume. See User-Selectable Features on pages 9-10.
Extended Chirp Silencing: Lets you completely silence the chirps until you
wish to restore them. See User-Selectable Features on pages 9-10.
Short-Term Chirp Muting: Lets you silence the chirps for a single arm-anddisarm cycle. To enable short-term chirp muting, simply turn the vehicle’s ignition switch rapidly ON then OFF. The next time you arm and later disarm the
system, there will be no chirps. After which, the chirps are restored.
One-Time Remote Chirp Muting: The most simple of all. To remotely arm or
disarm the alarm silently, press button III (switch up) on the remote control.
Remote Headlight Activation OR Window/Sunroof Closure
The system’s built-in timer can control one of two great features when the system
is in its armed state (these features require optional wiring):
★ Remote Controlled Headlight Activation OR
★ Remote Controlled Window/Sunroof Closure (available only on certain vehicles)
Please see page 4: “To Activate an Option when the Alarm is Armed.” If connected
to the headlights, you may set the timer duration to any interval between 1 second and
2.5 minutes. See the User-Selectable Features section on pages 9-10.
WARNING: If your built-in timer controls window/sunroof closure in your car
DO NOT change the timer setting! This requires installer-only programming.
Changing the value will adversely effect operation and may cause damage.

User-Programmable Remote Controls
Your system will respond to as many as four remote controls regardless of each
remote control’s individual digital coding. Thus, you can buy additional remote
controls, including the super-high-security 4.3-billion-code Premier™ remote
controls, from any Authorized Clifford Dealer. To add a new remote control to the
system, use the procedures noted in the User-Selectable Features section on pages
9-10.
To Erase Unwanted Remote Control Codes
If your remote control 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. Just use the Add a New Remote procedures noted in
the User-Selectable Features section on pages 9-10 for a total of four times (e.g.,
if you have one remote control remaining, program it four times; if you have two
remote controls, program each twice).
