System Maintenance
The system requires no specific maintenance. Your remote control
is powered by a miniature 12V battery, type GP23A, that will last
approximately one year under normal use. When the battery weakens,
operating range will be reduced and the LED on the remote will dim.
Your Warranty
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. Make sure you receive the warranty card from

Using Your System
Arming
You can turn on, or arm, the system by pressing
on your trans-
mitter for one second. When the system arms, you will hear a short
siren sound, or chirp, and see the parking lights flash once
(optional). While the system is armed, the status LED will flash
approximately twice per second, indicating that the system is
actively protecting your vehicle.
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 (optional).
■
Heavy impacts will trigger the system. The trigger sequence
is 30 seconds of constant siren and flashing parking lights
(optional).
■
The current sensor monitors the electrical system and can
detect an interior light if a door is opened. If the current sensor is being used to detect door entry, the domelight in the
vehicle must be working and left in the “door” position. If
the domelight does not illuminate when a door is opened, the
current sensor cannot detect the entry.
■
The optional starter kill prevents the vehicle’s starter from
cranking.

Disarming
To turn off, or disarm the system, press
again. You will hear
two chirps, and the parking lights will flash twice (optional). If
the siren chirps four times when disarming, the system was triggered in your absence. This is called Tamper Alert.
High Security Disarm
Your system includes a High Security Disarm feature. During the
trigger sequence, using the transmitter to disarm the system will
only stop the trigger sequence (the siren will stop); however, the
system will remain armed. This is extremely useful if you must stop
the system from sounding, but are unable to visually check the
vehicle. The trigger will stop, but the vehicle will remain protected.
To disarm the system with the transmitter during a trigger, press
on your transmitter. The siren will stop sounding. Next press
once more and the system will chirp four times to report that
there was a trigger (Tamper Alert) and the system will disarm.
Silent Mode
To temporarily turn off the arm or disarm chirps, use Silent Mode™.
Simply press
briefly before arming or disarming, and the con-
firmation chirp(s) will be eliminated for that one operation only.
If you want the arm/disarm chirps turned off permanently, consult
with your dealer, or the installation guide.

Panic Mode
If you are threatened in or near your vehicle, you can attract
attention by triggering the system with your transmitter! Just
press
for 1.5 seconds, and you will enter Panic Mode. The siren
will sound for 30 seconds. To stop Panic Mode at any time, press
on the transmitter again.
Shock Sensor Adjustment
The system features a Doubleguard® shock sensor inside the control
unit. All adjustments to the sensor are made using the transmitter.
Adjusting the Shock Sensor Warn-Away
1.
Disarm the system by pressing
on the transmitter.
2.
Within five seconds, press and hold
on the transmitter
until the unit generates a long chirp.
3.
Release
on the transmitter.
To Test and Adjust the Current Warn-Away Setting
Strike the vehicle to test the current setting. If the impact is
detected the unit will chirp three times.
■
If the current setting is acceptable, do nothing and the unit
will exit shock sensor adjustment mode.

■
If the current setting is unacceptable, press
the sensitivity or
to decrease
to increase the sensitivity. Each time
is pressed, the unit will emit one chirp and the sensitivity is decreased one step. Each time
is pressed, the unit
will emit two chirps and the sensitivity will be increased one
step. There are 16 possible settings. When the maximum or
minimum setting (Warn-Away™ off) is achieved, the siren will
emit a long chirp.
Adjusting the Shock Sensor Full Trigger
1.
Arm the system by pressing
on your transmitter.
2.
Within five seconds, press and hold
on the transmitter
until the unit generates a long chirp.
3.
Release
on the transmitter.
To Test and Adjust the Current Full Trigger Setting
Strike the vehicle to test the current setting. If the impact is
detected the unit will chirp three or four times.
■
If the current setting is acceptable do nothing and the unit
will exit shock sensor adjustment mode.
■
If the current setting is unacceptable press
the sensitivity or
to decrease
to increase the sensitivity. Each time
is pressed, the unit will emit one chirp and the sensitivity is decreased one step. Each time
is pressed, the unit
will emit two chirps and the sensitivity will be increased one
step. There are 16 possible settings. When the maximum set8

ting is achieved, the siren will emit two short chirps followed
by a long chirp. When the minimum setting (full trigger off)
is achieved, the siren will emit one short chirp followed by a
long chirp.
NOTE: If more than five seconds elapse without an adjustment, shock
sensor adjustment mode will be exited. Repeat steps 1 through 3 to make
additional adjustments. The siren will generate one long chirp followed
by two short chirps when the shock sensor adjustment mode has been
exited.
Code Hopping ™
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 synchronized 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 sync with the control unit and fail to operate the
system. To resynchronize the remote control simply press
on
the remote control several times within range of the vehicle. The
alarm will automatically resynchronize and respond to the transmitters normally.

Programming Options
Programming options control what your system does during normal operation, and require few or no additional parts; however,
some options may require additional installation labor. The factory settings are in bold.

Security & Convenience
Expansions
Here we have listed some of the many expansion options available
for use with your system. Please consult your dealer for a complete
list of expansion options.
Backup Battery: The 520T keeps the system armed, triggers the
alarm and keeps the starter kill active if main battery power is disconnected.
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.
10
© 1999 Directed Electronics, Inc.
Field Disturbance Sensor: An invisible dome of coverage is established by the 508D “radar” sensor. Your system can react to any
intrusions into this field with the triggered sequence.
Power Window Control: Automatic power window control is provided with the 529T system. These can operate power windows,
and can roll them up automatically when the system is armed.
Glossary of Terms
Control Unit: The “brain” of your system. It houses the microprocessor which monitors your vehicle and controls the alarm's
functions.
LED: Red light mounted somewhere in the vehicle. It is used to
indicate the status of your system.
Shock Sensor: This system is packaged with a Doubleguard® Shock
Sensor. This sensor is designed to pick up impacts to the vehicle
or glass.
Siren: Noise generating device on-board the control module. It is
responsible for generating the “chirps” you hear, as well as the
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 (optional).
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 (optional).
