Congratulations on your purchase of a state-of-the-art vehicle security
system. This system has been designed to provide years of troublefree operation. Due to the complexity of this system, it must be installed
by an authorized dealer only. Installation of this product by any other
person other than an authorized dealer voids the warranty. All dealers
are provided with a preprinted dealer certificate to verify that they are
authorized.
The system requires no specific maintenance. Your remote control is
powered by a miniature 12V battery, type GP23A, that will last about a
year under normal use. When the battery weakens, operating range
will be reduced and the LED on the remote will light dim.
Your Warranty card must be returned and the bar-code serial number
must not be removed. If the warranty card is not returned you don’t
have a warranty. It is also necessary to keep your proof of purchase
which reflects that the product was installed by an authorized dealer.

Using Your System
Arming
You can turn on, or arm, the system by pressing Button I of your transmitter for one second. When the system arms, you will hear a short
siren sound, or chirp, and see the parking lights flash once. If the vehicle’s power door locks are controlled by the system, the doors will lock.
While the system is armed, the Status LED will flash about twice a second, showing that the system is actively protecting your vehicle. If you
hear a second chirp after arming and see the Status LED flashes in
groups, see Diagnostics section. This extra chirp is called Bypass
Notification. The system also 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 "sees" you leave the vehicle by opening
and closing a door. Whenever the system is in its 30 second passivearming countdown, the Status LED will flash twice as fast as it does
when the system is armed.
NOTE: If any protected entry point (such as a door or a switch-protected 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 in the following ways:
•
Light impacts will trigger the Warn-Away® signal. When triggered,
the siren will chirp and the parking lights will flash for a few seconds.
•
Heavy impacts will trigger the system. The trigger sequence is 30
seconds of constant siren and flashing parking lights.
•
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 transmitter 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 two-stage response as
opening a door.
•
The optional starter kill prevents the vehicle’s starter from cranking.
Armed While Driving
Your system can be armed while driving the vehicle! Simply press
Button I on your transmitter while the vehicle is running. The system will
chirp once 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
reached your destination, the system must be disarmed by pressing
Button I on the transmitter once more. The siren will chirp twice and the
LED will stop flashing. If you do not disarm the system, it will trigger
when any door is opened to exit the vehicle.
Disarming
To turn off, or disarm the system, press Button I again.You will hear two
chirps, and the parking lights will flash twice. If power locks are controlled by the system, the doors will unlock. If the siren chirps either
four or five times when disarming, see Diagnostics section. This is
called Tamper Alert.
Your system includes a High Security Disarm feature. During the triggered sequence, using the transmitter to disarm it will only stop the
triggered sequence (the siren will stop and the parking lights will stop
flashing), however, the system will remain armed and the doors will
stay locked. This is extremely useful if you must stop the system from
sounding, but are unable to check the vehicle visually. The trigger will
stop, but the vehicle will remain protected.

To disarm with the transmitter during a trigger, press Button I on your
transmitter. The siren will stop sounding. Next press Button I once more
and the system will chirp four or five times (reporting the trigger) and
disarm.
Disarming Without a Transmitter
This feature allows you to disarm the system without the transmitter
should it be lost, damaged or disabled. In order to disarm without a
transmitter, you must have the vehicle's ignition key and know where
the valet button is. Be sure to check with the installer for the location of
the Valet button.
Turn on the ignition. Push the Valet® switch within
15 seconds. The system should now disarm. If it
does not, you may have waited too long, so turn
the ignition off and on and try again.
Silent ModeTM
To temporarily turn off the arm or disarm chirps, use Silent ModeTM.
Simply press Button II briefly 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 able to
trigger. Only the Warn-Away response is defeated.
Panic Mode
If you are threatened in or near your vehicle, you can attract attention
by triggering the system with your transmitter! Just press Button I for
1.5 seconds, and you will enter Panic Mode. The siren will sound and
the parking lights will flash for 30 seconds. To stop Panic Mode at any
time, press Button I on the transmitter again.
© 1994, 1997 Directed Electronics, Inc. 97G432.597
5
Valet® Mode
You can prevent your 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 system will not arm, even with
the transmitter, but all convenience functions (door locks, trunk
release, etc.) will work normally.
To enter or exit Valet Mode with the Valet switch:
Turn ignition to "run" position, then turn to "off"
position. Press and release the Valet switch within 10 seconds. The Status LED will light steady if
you have entered Valet Mode, and it will go out if
you exited Valet Mode.
Using Remote Valet as you enter or exit the vehicle:
Open any door. Press Button I (or the arm/disarm button). Press
Button II (or the function 2 Button). Press Button I again. The Status
LED will light steady if you have entered Valet Mode, and it will go out
if you exited Valet Mode.
Nuisance Prevention Circuitry®
Your system has DEI'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.
Here's how it works:
Let's say the alarm triggers three times. Each time, the same sensor
or switch is triggering the alarm. The three triggers are within 60 minutes of each other. NPC will interpret this pattern of 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).
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 continuously triggers will remain bypassed.
6
© 1994, 1997 Directed Electronics, Inc. 97G432.597
Doors are covered by NPC differently: If the alarm is triggered by an
open door for three full cycles (one-and-one-half minutes), the doors
will be bypassed until the trigger ceases.
NOTE: Arming and disarming the system does not reset this function! The only ways to reset a bypassed zone
are for it to remain untriggered 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 seem 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 on.
Diagnostics
The microprocessor at the heart of your system is constantly monitoring all of the switches and sensors 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.
Arming Diagnostics
If the system is armed with an input active (door open, sensor triggering, etc.) the unit will chirp once when arming and then one more time
a few seconds later. This is called Bypass Notification.
Note: Bypass notification will not occur when using Silent Mode or if chirps have been programmed OFF.
The system will ignore the input that was active when it was armed
until it goes away. Three seconds later it will monitor that input normally. For example, if your car has interior light exit delay, and you arm the
system before the interior light goes out, you may get Bypass
Notification. Once the light goes out, however, the doors are monitored
normally.

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
Circuitry has bypassed that zone. In either case, the Status LED will
indicate which zone was involved (see Table of Zones section). The
system will retain this information in its memory, and chirp four or five
times each time it is disarmed, until the next time the ignition key is
turned on.
Table of Zones
The zone number is the number of LED flashes used by the system to
identify that input. The standard input assignments are listed below,
along with spaces to write in any optional sensors or switches you have
had installed.

Code-Hopping™ Explained
The receiver and transmitters each use a mathematical formula called
an algorithm to change their code each time the transmitter 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 transmitter “in synch” with the control unit even if you use
the remote control out of range of the vehicle. However, if the transmitter has been pressed many times out of range of the vehicle, or the
battery has been removed, it may get out of synch with the control unit
and fail to operate the system. To re-synch the remote control simply
press the arm/disarm button of the remote control several times within
range of the vehicle. The alarm will automatically re-synch and respond
to the transmitters normally.
Programming Options
Programming options control what your system does during normal
operation, and require little or no additional parts. However, some may
require additional installation labor. The factory settings are in bold.
•
Active arming (only with the transmitter) or passive arming (automatic arming 30 seconds after the last door is closed).
•
Arming/disarming confirmation chirps on or off.
•
Passive door locking (with passive arming) or active door locking
(only when arming with the transmitter) . This feature only works if
passive arming has been selected for step one.
•
The ignition-switch-controlled door-locking feature on or off. With
this feature on, the doors will lock 3 seconds after the key is turned
on, and unlock when the key is turned off.
Note: If the door is open when the ignition is turned on, the doors will not lock.

•
Panic mode enabled/disabled with the ignition on. (Some states
have laws against siren capability in a moving vehicle).
•
Automatic Engine Disable (AED) on or off. This feature deters theft
of the vehicle, 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. The LED will flash slowly (one-half its
normal armed rate) to indicate the AED arming cycle. 30 seconds
later, the starter of the vehicle will be disabled. To start the car, you
will need to arm the car with the remote and then disarm it with the
remote. You can also disarm the AED feature by turning the ignition
on and pressing the valet button once. AED is also disabled when
in valet mode.
NOTE: This feature will only function if the FailSafe starter kill relay has been installed.
•
Forced passive arming on or off. If your system is programmed to
passively arm and this feature has been programmed on, the system will passively arm after one hour, even if a protected entry has
been left open. If a door has accidentally been left ajar when leaving the vehicle, forced passive arming ensures that the system will
arm in one hour.
NOTE: When forced passive arming occurs, the entry point that has been left open, and anything connected to the
same zone, is bypassed and cannot trigger the system. The remaining inputs to the system are fully operational.

Siren tones and chirp volume. The output of the Revenger® SoftChirp® 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 6 decibels quieter than the full alarm blast.

Glossary of Terms
Control Unit The “brain” of your system. Usually hidden underneath the dash
area of the vehicle. It houses the microprocessor which monitors your vehicle
and controls all of the alarm's functions.
FailSafe® 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 kill switch itself fail. Your system is ready for this
feature, however installation of this feature may require additional labor.
Input A physical connection to the system. An input can be provided by a sensor,
pinswitch or to existing systems in the vehicle, such as ignition or courtesy lights.
LED Red 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.
Shock Sensor This system is packaged with a Double Guard Shock Sensor.
This sensor is contained within the control unit and 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.
Transmitter Hand-held, remote control which operates the various functions of
your system.
Trigger or triggered response This is what happens when the alarm “goes off”
or “trips.” The triggered response of your system consists of 30 seconds of
siren sounding and parking light flashing.
Valet Switch A small push button switch mounted somewhere inside the vehicle.
It is used to override the alarm when a transmitter is lost or damaged, or to
put it into valet mode.
Warn-Away® response Lighter impacts to the vehicle will generate the Warn-Away
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. Often two or more
inputs may share the same zone.

Security & Convenience Expansions
Here we have listed only some of the many expansion options available.
Please consult your dealer for a complete explanation of all the options
available to you.
Field Disturbance Sensor: An invisible dome of coverage is established by the 508T “radar” sensor. Your system can react to any intrusions into this field with the triggered sequence.
Backup Battery: The 520T keeps the system armed, triggers the alarm
and keeps the starter kill active if main battery power is disconnected.
Electronic Hood Lock: This prevents the vehicle’s hood from being
opened whenever the system is in alarm mode, keeping thieves away
from the system’s siren, the battery connections, or other components
under the hood.
Audio Sensor: Metal on glass, glass cracking, or breaking glass produce
distinctive acoustic signatures. The 506T audio sensor uses a microphone to pick up sounds, and then analyze them with proprietary
acoustic software to determine if the glass has been struck.
Power Trunk Release: The Button 2 output of the system can operate
a factory power release for the vehicle’s trunk or hatch. (An optional
relay may be required.) If the factory release is not power-activated,
the DEI's 522T trunk-release solenoid can often be added.
Power Locks: This system offers lock outputs that can control some
manufacturers' power door lock systems. For other systems, additional
parts may be required.
Valet® Start System: For the ultimate in convenience, the Valet Start
System can start your vehicle, monitor engine functions, and power
your climate control system with a push of a button! Over-rev protection,
open-hood lockout, brake-pedal shutdown, and automatic timer shutdown are all included. (Only for automatic-transmission, fuel-injected
gasoline vehicles).
Power Window Control: Automatic power window control is provided
with the 529T or 530T systems. These can operate power windows,
and can roll them up automatically when the system is armed, down
when you transmit Button 2 or 3, or both up and down. The 530T also
provides one touch switch operation.
