remote operation
The remote start system operates at 434 MHz and incorporates Directed’s
proprietary XHF2 out-board technology transceiver. The high frequency
combined with Binary Data communication achieves superior range with twoway communication.
➜ system signal paging features
A page is the signal the control module sends to the remote control as
confirmation of receipt of a command or alarm system status.
When the remote control receives a page it will generate a page notification to the user (notifications are audible beeps) and the LED Icons will
display the current system status.
Command Page
When a command (arm/disarm, or auxiliary channel) from the remote
control is sent and received, the system will send a command page
back to confirm receipt.
© 2004 directed electronics, inc.
7
Alarm Page
If the alarm system is triggered while armed, an Alarm Page will be sent
to the remote control. When the remote receives an Alarm Page, the LED
icons will display the alarm system status information and the remote
control will generate beeps.
An Alarm Page alert is a series of 10 or 4 rapid beeps and the Red LED
will illuminate. This will repeat every 100 seconds to alert the user that
the alarm system was triggered and will continue until the alarm page
is cleared.
If the shock sensor or optional sensor has triggered the alarm the
remote will display the alarm page with 6 Red LED flashes and 10 rapid
beeps.
If the trunk, door, ignition, or hood triggered the alarm the remote will
display the alarm page with the Red LED illuminating for 3-seconds and
4 rapid beeps (repeated 5 times)
Page Recognition (Acknowledgement)
To clear a page alert/notification, quickly press any button on the
remote control. This can be performed at any time during or after the
page notification has occurred.
The remote control will not send a command to the system at this time;
it will only clear future repeats of the page notification. The next time
a button is pressed on the remote control it will send a command to
the system.

➜ out of range notification
If a command is issued from the remote, but the remote is beyond the
range of the vehicle to receive the command, the remote responds with
2 sets of 3 quick beeps and the Green LED will flash 6-times.
programming 2-way remote
To enter programming mode
Press and hold all four remote control buttons simultaneously until one
long beep is heard. Programming mode is now entered.
Beeps On/Off
Press
to select beeps On/Off. One beep is notification beeps On,
Two beeps is notification beeps Off. The notification beeps are
programmed On from the factory and can be programmed Off if they
are not desired. When programmed Off the remote will only flash the
LEDs as notification of a command page or an alarm page.
Remote battery low notification
Press
to select low battery notification On/Off. One beep is low
battery notification On. Two beeps is low battery notification Off. The
Low battery Beeps are programmed On from the factory and can be

of inactivity and will emit 2 long beeps.
using your system
The buttons used in the instructions in this manual correspond to the
standard configuration. Remember, this is not the only way your 2-way
remote may be set up. It can be custom configured to meet your
needs.
➜ active arming
You can arm the system by pressing
of your 2-way remote for one
second. When the system arms, from the vehicle you will hear a short
siren sound, or chirp, and see the parking lights flash once. If the
power door locks are controlled by the system, the doors will also lock.
While the system is armed, the in-vehicle’s status LED will flash approximately once per second, indicating that the system is actively protecting your vehicle. If you hear a second chirp after arming and note that
10
© 2004 directed electronics, inc.
the in-vehicle’s status LED is flashing in groups, see the Diagnostics
Section of this guide. This extra chirp is called Bypass Notification.
The remote responds to active arming with one beep and the Orange
LED will flash 3-times to indicate successful arming of the system.
If after 2-seconds the remote beeps once and the Orange and Red LEDs
flash 3-times, the system has detected an active sensor that should be
checked.
If after 2-seconds the remote beeps once, the Orange LED flashes 6-times
and the Red LED lights for 3-seconds, the system has detected an open
door, hood or trunk and has been bypassed.
➜ passive arming
The system can be programmed to arm itself automatically (called passive arming). If the system is programmed for passive arming, it will automatically arm 30 seconds after the ignition is turned off and the system
detects that you have left the vehicle by opening and closing a door.
Whenever the system is in its 30-second passive arming countdown, the
in-vehicle status LED will flash twice as fast as it does when the system
is armed. At the 20-second point of the countdown, the siren will chirp
to indicate that the system is about to arm. At the 30-second point, the
parking lights will flash to indicate that the system is armed.
The remote responds to passive arming with one beep and the Orange
LED will flash 3-times to indicate successful arming of the system.
© 2004 directed electronics, inc.
11
NOTE: If any protected entry point (such as a door or a switchprotected trunk or hood) is open, the system will not passively
arm (unless forced passive arming is programmed on. See
Programming Options section.) Additionally, each time a sensor
is triggered during the arming countdown, the 30-second countdown starts over.
When armed your vehicle is protected as follows:
➤
Light impacts trigger the Warn Away® signal. When triggered, the
siren chirps and the parking lights flash for a few seconds.
➤
Heavy impacts trip a Triggered Sequence. The sequence consists of
the siren sounding continuously and the parking lights flashing for
a pre-programmed period, which can range in duration from 1 to
180 seconds.
➤
If a door is opened, the system will immediately start chirping the
siren and flashing the parking lights. Three seconds later, the siren
output changes to a continuous blast. This progressive response
gives you time to disarm the system with your 2-way remote if you
inadvertently open the door while the system is armed, while still
providing instant response (even if the door is immediately
closed).
➤
Turning on the ignition key will trip the same progressive response
as opening a door.
➤
The optional starter kill prevents the vehicle’s starter from cranking.
➤
Any full trigger of the alarm system will immediately send an
alarm page to your remote informing you that your vehicle should
be checked.
12
© 2004 directed electronics, inc.
➜ multi-level security arming
Multi-Level Security Arming allows you to select which of the system's
inputs or sensors will be active and which will be bypassed when the
system is armed. (See Table of Zones section of this guide.) Pressing
(only in Standard Configuration) again within five seconds of
arming the system will activate the Multi-Level Security feature. Each
time
is pressed again, a different security level is selected. The
different security levels are selected as follows:
➤
Press
once: The siren chirps once. The system is armed.
➤
Press
a second time within five seconds: The siren chirps
twice followed by a long chirp. Zone 2 is now bypassed.
➤
Press
a third time within five seconds: The siren chirps three
times followed by a long chirp. Zone 4 is now bypassed.
➤
Press
a fourth time within five seconds: The siren chirps four
times followed by a long chirp. Zones 2 and 4 are now bypassed.
➤
Press
a fifth time within five seconds: The siren chirps five
times followed by a long chirp. All input zones, except the ignition, are now bypassed.
NOTE: Multi-Level Security Arming only applies to a single arming cycle. Once the system is disarmed and then re-armed, all
the zones will be active again.
After each press of the
to reach the next level of security, the
remote will emit normal arm notification (1 beep and 3 flashes of the
Orange LED). For easiest operation in reaching each level of security,
press
immediately after each notification.
© 2004 directed electronics, inc.
13
➜ arming while driving
Your security system can be armed while driving the vehicle! Simply press
on the 2-way remote for two seconds while the vehicle is running.
The siren will chirp once to indicate that the security system is armed, and
then once more to indicate that the ignition is on. The system will not
respond to any input except the door triggers, and the starter kill relay (if
installed) will not be activated. Once you have arrived at your destination,
the system can be disarmed by pressing the
or by turning the igni-
tion Off. The siren will chirp twice and the in-vehicle status LED will then
stop flashing. The system can also be disarmed at any time by pressing
.
The remote will respond with the normal arming response plus a diagnostic notification because the ignition On. When disarmed the remote
will respond with the normal disarming response.
➜ disarming
To disarm the security system, press
. You will hear two chirps, and
the parking lights will flash twice. If the power locks are controlled by
the system, the doors will also unlock. The siren chirping either four or
five times when disarming indicates Tamper Alert, which is described in
the Diagnostics Section of this guide.
The remote will indicate disarm notification with 2 beeps and 3 flashes
of the Orange LED. If disarming after the system has been triggered,
the remote control will send a diagnostic notification as a reminder.
These diagnostic notifications are:
14

1.
If a sensor triggered the system, the remote will beep 4-times and
the Orange and Red LEDs flash 3 times.
2.
If a switch (Zone 1, 3, 5, or 6) triggered the system, the remote
will beep 4-times, the Orange LED will flash 6-times and Red LED
will illuminate for 3 seconds.
3.
If the system was triggered so many times that NPC is active the
remote will emit the above notifications with 5 beeps instead of
4.
➜ high security disarm
This system includes High Security Disarm feature. If the system is triggered this feature allows the user to silence the siren and reset the
system to the armed state without having to visually checking the
system status.

and allow the vehicle to be accessed.
© 2004 directed electronics, inc.
15
NOTES: The first press of the remote button, while the remote is
beeping, only clears the alarm page (no command is sent to the
vehicle).
The transceiver transmits immediately upon system trigger and
does not allow disarm during the first 6 seconds after trigger.
The 2-way remote will respond with a number of beeps and LED
flashes according to whether a pinswitch, sensor, activated the
alarm (and also if NPC is active).
➜ disarming without a 2-way remote
This feature allows you to disarm the security system without the 2-way
remote should it be lost, damaged, or disabled. In order to disarm the
system without a 2-way remote, you must have the vehicle’s ignition key
and know where the Valet® button is located. Be sure to check with the
installer for the location and the number of presses of the Valet® button
required to disarm the system.
To disarm the security system,turn the ignition to the ON position.
Press the Valet® button the preset number of times (one to
five times) within 15 seconds. After five seconds the system
will disarm. If the system does not disarm, you may have
DRW-35
waited too long; turn the ignition Off and On and try again.

important! The unit can be programmed to respond to one to
five pulses of the Valet® button for the disarm function. Be sure
to check with the installer for the desired programming.
The remote will indicate disarm notification with 2 beeps and 3 flashes
of the Orange LED.
➜ silent mode
To temporarily turn off the arm or disarm chirps, use Silent Mode™.
Simply press
for less than one second before arming or disarming,
and the confirmation chirp(s) will be eliminated for that one operation
only. If you want the arm/disarm chirps turned off permanently, your
dealer can do this for you.
NOTE: The Warn Away® response to lighter impacts is bypassed if
the system is armed using Silent Mode. This ensures that no chirps
will be emitted by the siren in an area you want chirp-free. The system is still fully capable of triggering. Only the Warn Away®
response is bypassed.
The remote responds with the normal arm/disarm notifications in
silent mode. (If the remote has beeps programmed On, the remote will
beep.)

➜ panic mode
If you are threatened in or near your vehicle, you can attract attention
by triggering the system with your 2-way remote. Just press
for
two seconds, and you will enter Panic Mode. The siren will sound and
the parking lights will flash for the programmed siren duration. To stop
Panic Mode at any time, press
on the 2-way remote again.
The remote responds with one flash of the Red LED upon entering Panic
Mode and two flashes of the Red LED upon exiting Panic Mode.
➜ valet® mode
You can prevent your security system from automatically arming and
triggering by using Valet® Mode. This is very useful when washing the
vehicle or having it serviced. In Valet® Mode, the security system will
not arm, even with the 2-way remote, but all convenience functions
(door locks, trunk release, etc.) will continue to work normally.
To enter or exit Valet® Mode:
1.
Turn the ignition on.
2. Turn the ignition off.
3.
Press and release the Valet® button once within 10
seconds.

➜ nuisance prevention® circuitry
Your system has Directed’s Nuisance Prevention® Circuitry (NPC®). It
prevents annoying repetitive trigger sequences due to faulty door pin
switches or environmental conditions such as thunder, jackhammers,
airport noise, etc.
Example
If the alarm triggers three times within a 60-minute period and each
time the same sensor or switch triggers the alarm, NPC® will interpret
those triggers as false alarms. After the third trigger, NPC® ignores, or bypasses, that sensor or switch (along with any other sensors or switches
sharing the same zone) for 60 minutes.
If the bypassed sensor tries to trigger the system while it is being
bypassed, the 60-minute bypass period will start over. This ensures that
a sensor that continually triggers will remain bypassed.
Doors are covered by NPC® differently; if the alarm is triggered by an
open door for three full cycles, the doors will be bypassed until the
trigger ceases.
© 2004 directed electronics, inc.
19
NOTE: Arming and disarming the system does not reset this function.The only ways to reset a bypassed zone are for it to not trigger for 60 minutes, or to turn on the ignition. If testing your system, it is important to remember that the NPC® programming
can cause zones to be bypassed and appear to stop working. If
five chirps are heard when disarming, NPC® has been engaged.
If you wish to clear the NPC® memory, turn the ignition key on.
NPC® is programmable. See Programming Options section of this guide.
auxiliary outputs (options)
This system also supplies outputs that can control convenience options
such as remote control trunk release and window automation. Consult
your dealer for available options for your system.
Channel 2 Trunk release: When connected, pressing
for 1.5
seconds will remotely release the vehicle trunk lid.
Channel 4 auxiliary output: When connected, pressing
and
will immediately activate this output to control an additional convenience option.
Channel 5 auxiliary output: When connected, pressing
and
will immediately activate this output to control an additional convenience option.
The remote will respond with a page notification consisting of an output tone (once) and the Yellow LED will flash 3-times. This occurs at
the remote after the system has received the command to activate any
of the Auxiliary outputs.

diagnostics
The microprocessor at the heart of your security system is constantly
monitoring all of the switches and sensors that are connected to it. It
detects any faulty switches and sensors and prevents them from
disabling the entire system. The microprocessor will also record and
report any triggers that occurred during your absence. Refer to the
System Status Chirps and Table of Zones charts for diagnostic information.
➜ arming diagnostics
If the security system is armed at the same time that an input is active
(such as a door opening or sensor triggering), you will hear one siren
chirp to indicate arming and a second siren chirp to indicate Bypass
Notification. A Bypass Notification chirp means that the security
system ignores the input that was active when the system was armed,
until that input ceases. Three seconds after that input ceases, the
security system will resume normal monitoring. For example, if your
vehicle has an interior light exit delay and you arm your security
system before the interior light turns off, you may hear a second
Bypass Notification chirp. Once the light turns off, however, the security system resumes normal monitoring.
➜ disarming diagnostics
Extra disarm chirps are the Tamper Alert. If four chirps are heard when
disarming, the system was triggered in your absence. If five chirps are
heard, a zone was triggered so many times that Nuisance Prevention®
© 2004 directed electronics, inc.
21
Circuitry has bypassed that zone. The in-vehicle status LED will indicate
which zone was involved. (See Table of Zones section of this guide.) The
system will retain this information in its memory, and continue to chirp
four or five times each time it is disarmed, until the next time the ignition key is turned on.
➜ system status chirps
The siren will chirp when arming/disarming the system. The pattern of
chirps will audibly report the system’s status as described below.

➜ interpreting zone diagnostics
Warn Away responses are not reported by arming or disarming diagnostics. If you receive a Bypass notification when arming or a Tamper
Alert notification when disarming, look at the in-vehicle status LED.
Active or triggered zones will be indicated by a pattern of blinks by this
LED.
Example
If Zone 3 was active or triggered, the in-vehicle LED will blink three
times with a two-second pause. Then it will blink three times again,
and repeat until the ignition is turned on.
NOTE: Your system stores the last two triggered zones in memory. If your system has been triggered but the LED has been
reset by turning on the ignition, your dealer can still recall the
last two zones that were triggered. Contact your dealer for
details.

code hopping
The receiver and 2-way remotes each use mathematical formulas called
algorithms to change their codes each time the 2-way remote is used.
This technology has been developed to increase the security of the unit.
The control unit knows what the next codes should be. This helps to
keep the 2-way remote "in sync" with the control unit even if you use
the 2-way remote out of range of the vehicle. However, if the 2-way
remote has been pressed many times out of range of the vehicle, or if
the battery has been removed, it may get out of sync with the control
unit and fail to operate the system. To re-sync the 2-way remote simply
press
of the 2-way remote several times within range of the
vehicle. The alarm will automatically re-sync and respond to the 2-way
remotes normally.
high frequency
Your system transmits and receives at 434 MHz. This provides a cleaner
spectrum with less interference and a more stable signal. Enjoy a phenomenal increase in range – even in areas with high radio interference.
24

owner recognition
Owner Recognition is a feature available exclusively from Directed.
Using the Directed Bitwriter, a hand-held programming tool, your
dealer can program many of the system settings. The programmer
makes it possible to program different settings for each 2-way remote
that is used with the system. Then, whenever a specific 2-way remote
is used, the system will recall the settings assigned to that 2-way
remote. Owner Recognition lets up to four users of the system have
different settings that meet their specific needs. It is almost like
having four separate alarms in your vehicle, one for each user.
NOTE: Owner Recognition cannot be programmed without a
Directed Bitwriter and the necessary software. Check with your
dealer for more information.
rapid resume logic
This Directed system will store its current state to non-volatile memory.
If power is lost and then reconnected, the system will recall the stored
state from memory. This means if the unit is in Valet® Mode and the
battery is disconnected for any reason, such as servicing the car, when
the battery is reconnected the unit will still be in Valet® Mode. This
applies to all states of the system including arm, disarm, VRS®, and
Valet® Mode.
© 2004 directed electronics, inc.
25
power saver mode
Your system will automatically enter Power Saver Mode while armed or
in Valet® Mode, after a period of time in which no operation has been
performed. This lowers the current draw to the vehicle’s battery. Power
Saver Mode takes over under the following conditions:
➤
Power Saver when the system is armed: After the system has been
armed for 24 hours, the in-vehicle LED will flash at half its normal
rate, decreasing the system's current draw.
➤
Power Saver in Valet® Mode: When the system enters Valet® Mode
the in-vehicle LED illuminates steadily. If the vehicle is not used
(ignition is not turned on) for a period of one hour while the
system is in Valet® Mode, the LED will shut off. If the system
remains in Valet® Mode, the LED will come back on the next time
the ignition is turned on and then back off.
programming options
Programming options control what your system does during normal operation, and require few or no additional parts. However, some may
require additional installation labor.
The following is a list of the program settings, with the factory settings
in Bold:
26
© 2004 directed electronics, inc.
➤
Active arming (only with the 2-way remote) or passive arming
(automatic arming 30-seconds after the last door has been
closed).
➤
Arming/disarming confirmation siren chirps on or off.
➤
The ignition controlled door lock feature on or off: With this
feature on, the doors will lock three seconds after the ignition is
turned on, and unlock when the ignition is turned off. The system
will not lock the doors when the ignition is turned on with any
door open. If your installer is programming the security system
with the Directed Bitwriter, ignition lock and unlock are independent features and can be programmed separately.
➤
Passive door locking (with passive arming) or active door locking
(only when arming with the 2-way remote). Passive locking allows
the vehicle's doors to lock when the security system passively arms
(after the 30 second countdown). This feature only works if
passive arming has been programmed.
NOTE: When programmed for passive arming and active lock, if
the system is disarmed without a door being opened, the system
will relock the doors when it passively rearms.
➤
Panic mode enabled/disabled with the ignition on: Some states
have laws against siren capability in a moving vehicle.
➤
Forced passive arming on or off: If your system is programmed for
passive arming and the forced passive arming feature has been programmed on, the system will passively arm after one hour, even if a
protected entry has been left open. This feature is useful if a door has
been left ajar when leaving the vehicle. Forced passive arming ensures
that the security system will be armed in every situation.
© 2004 directed electronics, inc.
27
NOTE: When the system passively arms after one hour, the entry
point that has been left open, and anything connected to the
same zone, is bypassed and cannot trigger the system. However,
the remaining inputs to the system are fully operational.
➤
Automatic Engine Disable (AED) on or off: The purpose of this feature is to protect the vehicle from being stolen at all times, regardless of whether or not the alarm is armed. If AED is programmed
on, the starter of the vehicle will be disabled 30 seconds after the
ignition is turned off. Once the key is turned off, the in-vehicle
LED will flash slowly (one-half its normal armed rate) to indicate
the AED arming cycle. Thirty seconds later, the starter of the
vehicle will be disabled. To start the car, it will be necessary to
disarm the system with the 2-way remote. It is also possible to
disarm the AED feature by turning the ignition key to the RUN
position and pressing the Valet® button the programmed number
of times. AED is disabled when the system is in Valet® Mode.
NOTE: This feature will only function if the Failsafe® Starter Kill
relay has been installed.
➤
Full trigger response 30 or 60 seconds: This determines how long
the full triggered sequence lasts. Some states have laws regulating
how long a security system can sound before it is considered a
nuisance. If your installer is programming the security system with
the Directed Bitwriter, the full triggered response can be
programmed for any duration ranging from 1 to 180 seconds.
➤
28
Nuisance Prevention® Circuitry on or off: Please refer to the NPC®
© 2004 directed electronics, inc.
section of this manual for a complete explanation of how NPC® operates. If NPC® is programmed off, the security system will respond to
inputs from any sensor indefinitely.
NOTE: Because many states have laws regulating security systems, programming NPC® off may cause your system to violate
state laws.
➤
Progressive door trigger on or off: When the system is armed and
a door is opened, the system responds with ten chirps prior to beginning the full triggered sequence. If an instant trigger is desired,
the progressive door trigger can be programmed off.
➤
Valet® pulse count: The number of presses of the Valet® button
required to disarm the security system, AED, or the VRS® system can
be programmed from one to five presses. The default setting is one
press.
➤
Siren tones and chirp volume: The output of the Revenger® Soft
Chirp® siren consists of six different tones in sequence. Any of
these tones can be eliminated by your dealer, resulting in a
unique, easily identifiable siren sound. The siren chirps can be
either full volume or six decibels quieter than the full alarm
blast.
© 2004 directed electronics, inc.
29
installation options
The system has many options that may require extra parts and labor.
Some of the possibilities are listed here.
➤
Progressive unlocking: In most cars with electric power door locks,
the system can be configured so that when the system is disarmed,
only the driver’s door unlocks. A second press of the
button
unlocks the other doors.
➤
Vehicle Recovery System (VRS®): VRS® is an anti-carjacking device
designed to help in the safe recovery of your vehicle in case of a
carjacking. Please refer to the Vehicle Recovery System section of
this guide for a complete explanation of how the Vehicle Recovery
System operates.
®
vehicle recovery system (vrs )
The optional VRS® feature is designed to ensure that any unauthorized user
of your vehicle (even if using your keys and 2-way remote) will not be able
to permanently separate you from your vehicle.
The VRS® cannot prevent a carjacking attempt; however, it does ensure
that if your vehicle is taken by an unauthorized user, it will be disabled
(after several progressive warnings) as safely as possible. Should a
carjacking occur, the VRS® allows you to concern yourself with your
personal safety without worrying about your property.
Directed has engineered this vehicle security system, the Failsafe®
30

Starter Kill, and the VRS® feature to provide the best combination of
personal safety and property protection available. When properly
installed, the system can never inadvertently stop your vehicle in
traffic or on railroad tracks while the vehicle is in operation. It is unlike
other systems that shut down your engine while it is running. This system is designed to perform starter interrupt, or starter kill. The
Failsafe® Starter Kill cannot shut down an already-running engine – it
can only prevent an engine from starting in the first place.
important! Any installation that allows this product to shut down
a vehicle's engine when it is running is contrary to the product’s
design and intended usage, and Directed hereby expressly disclaims any liability resulting therefrom.
➜ arming the vrs
®
To arm the VRS®, turn the ignition to the ON position and press the arm
button on the 2-way remote for one second. The parking lights will flash
and the siren will chirp once. This can be done before driving or while
driving the vehicle. Once the system is armed, it will initiate its triggered sequence (see below) if any door is opened and closed. If you are
forced from the vehicle, the system will trigger as the door is opened
and closed. This is how the system works to combat intersection
carjacking. To protect against parking lot carjacking, arm the VRS®
before leaving the vehicle. The system will now trigger automatically the
next time you or anyone drives the vehicle. This helps to protect the
vehicle if someone takes your keys and 2-way remote by force in a
parking lot.
© 2004 directed electronics, inc.
31
NOTE: If the VRS® system is armed while operating the vehicle and
not disarmed prior to leaving the vehicle, it is still armed and will
trigger the next time the vehicle is driven.
®
➜ vrs triggered sequence
Fifteen seconds after the last door has closed, the in-vehicle
LED will begin flashing. This delay is intended to allow you time
to distance yourself from your vehicle in the event of a
carjacking.
Forty-five seconds later, the siren begins chirping and the parking lights begin flashing. This time could be used to notify authorities
that your vehicle has been hijacked, and tell them what the VRS® will
do next.
Fifteen seconds after the siren chirps begin, the siren’s output will
change to a continuous blast.
From this point on, when the ignition key is turned off, the VRS® will
immediately turn on the starter kill. This will prevent the vehicle from
being restarted, thus immobilizing it at that spot.
Three minutes after the constant siren output begins, the flashing
parking lights and the siren will stop. The starter kill will remain active
until the system is disarmed. If the door is opened or the ignition is
turned off and on in an attempt to restart the car, the siren and light
flashing will begin again.
32

➜ disarming the vrs®
Take the time to familiarize yourself with the VRS® triggering sequence
and the disarm procedure. It is important to recognize and identify the
VRS® trigger sequence and know how to disarm it in case of accidental
activation.
Once the VRS® is armed, it does not disarm automatically. You must
disarm it the next time you operate the vehicle. You must disarm it
with one of the following procedures:
If the system has not entered the triggered sequence (siren has not
started chirping):
1. Turn the ignition on.
2. Press
on the 2-way remote for one second. The
lights will flash and the siren will chirp twice.
If the system has entered the triggered sequence (siren has begun
chirping), pressing the disarm button of the 2-way remote will not disarm
VRS®. To disarm the VRS® during a VRS® trigger sequence:
1. Turn the ignition on.
2. Press the Valet® button the pre-programmed number
of times to disarm the VRS system.
DRW-35
© 2004 directed electronics, inc.
33
NOTE: If the VRS® system has begun its chirping sequence, the
ignition must be turned off, then on to disarm. If you are driving
the vehicle at the time, pull to a safe place away from traffic and
follow the triggered sequence disarm procedure.
glossary of terms
2-Way Remote: Hand-held, 2-way transceiver which operates the
various functions of your system.
Control Unit: The "brain" of your system. Usually hidden under the
dash area of the vehicle. It houses the microprocessor which monitors
your vehicle and controls all of the system's functions.
Fail Safe Starter Kill: An automatic switch controlled by the security
system which prevents the vehicle’s starter from cranking whenever the
system is armed. The vehicle is never prevented from cranking when the
system is disarmed, in Valet® mode, or should the starter interrupt switch
itself fail. Your system is ready for this feature, however installation may
require additional labor.
Input: A physical connection to the system. An input can be provided
by a sensor, pinswitch or through an existing system in the vehicle,
such as ignition or courtesy lights.
In-vehicle status LED: A light mounted somewhere in the vehicle.
It is used to indicate the status of your system. It is also used to report
triggers and faults in the system or sensors.
34
© 2004 directed electronics, inc.
Shock Sensor: This is a sensor mounted in the vehicle that is
designed to pick up impacts to the vehicle or glass.
Siren: Noise generating device usually installed in the engine compartment of the vehicle. It is responsible for generating the "chirps"
you hear, as well as the six tones you hear while the alarm is triggered.
Trigger or Triggered Sequence: This is what happens when the
alarm "goes off" or "trips". The triggered response of your system
consists of the siren sounding and parking light flashing for the
programmed duration.
Valet® Button: A small push-button switch mounted somewhere
inside the vehicle. It is used to override the alarm when a 2-way
remote is lost or damaged, or to enter or exit Valet® mode.
Warn Away Response: Lighter impacts to the vehicle will generate
the Warning Zone response. It consists of several seconds of siren
chirps and parking light flashes.
Zone: A zone is a separate input that the alarm can recognize as
unique. Each input to the system is connected to a particular zone. Two
or more inputs often share the same zone.

security & convenience expansions
Here we have listed only some of the many expansion options available. Please contact your dealer for a complete explanation of all the
options available to you.
Audio Sensor: Metal on glass, glass cracking, and breaking glass
each produce distinctive acoustic signatures. The 506T audio sensor
uses a microphone to pick up sounds, and then analyzes them with
proprietary acoustic software to determine if the glass has been struck.
Backup Battery: The 520T keeps the system armed, triggers the alarm
and keeps the starter kill active if main battery power is disconnected.
Field Disturbance Sensor: An invisible dome of coverage is established by installing the 508D "radar" sensor. Your security system can
then react to any intrusions into this field with the triggered sequence.
Headlight and Parking Light Automation: The 545T Nite-Lite®
will automatically turn on your parking and headlights when it gets
dark. In addition, the 545T will turn your headlights on whenever the
windshield wipers are used. A 2-way remote function can also be used
to turn on your parking and headlights for a programmed time.
Power Trunk Release: The channel two output of the system can
operate a factory power release for the vehicle’s trunk or hatch. (An
additional relay may be required.) If the factory release is not power
activated, then Directed's 522T trunk release solenoid can often be
added.
36
