Using the Remote Control Your Remote Car Starter is equipped with a 5-button multi-channel remote control. It can operate
two independent vehicles equipped with a Remote Car Starter (see Multi-Car Operation page-12,
for second-car transmitter functions).
The functions of the transmitter are as follows:
Picture serves as example only.
LOCK: Locks the doors and arms
the STARTER KILL.
TRUNK: Opens the TRUNK or
activates the AUX 3 output
STOP: Stops the engine if pressed
for less than 3 seconds or triggers
Panic mode if pressed for more than
3 seconds.
UNLOCK: Unlocks the doors
and disarms the STARTER
KILL. Activates the AUX 1
output if priority door access
is configured.
START: Remote starts the
engine or gets the system
into Cold Weather mode if
pressed for 3 seconds.
Note: On certain models, the
START button will bear this
icon:
N.B.: Pressing the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously will activate the AUX 2 output.
Vehicle Presets Heater When leaving the vehicle it is recommended to preset the accessory controls in preparation for the
next remote start. Settings for the blower motor (fan), front and rear, should not be left on HIGH. It is
recommended to leave the settings on LOW or MEDIUM instead.
Windshield Wipers, Radio & Headlights Certain vehicles require the radio and / or windshield wipers and / or headlights circuits to become
energized while running under remote start. When leaving the vehicle you must ensure that the
windshield wipers and headlights switches are OFF. Leaving the headlights switch ON on certain
types of vehicles could cause them to remain ON even after remote starter shutdown, resulting in a
dead battery.
Arming and disarming the Starter Kill This added security feature will prevent the vehicle from starting with the Ignition key when the
starter kill is armed. If the system was installed with the starter kill option, you will not be able to
start the vehicle with the key unless the system has been unlocked first or put into Valet Mode
(page-7)
Note: If the Starter Kill is installed, the vehicle will benefit from a protection against starter
motor damage that could occur after remote-starting the engine should the user, by force of
habit, turn the ignition key to the CRANK position.

Advanced Features: Installation­programmable Options The Remote Car Starter was designed with flexibility and OEM integration in mind. With its
programmable options, this unit can single-handedly control nearly any electrical system in your
vehicle.
Caution: The programming of your system should be left to a professional. Changing any
one of the settings may affect the operation of your Remote Car Starter. Please note that the
following programmable options may require additional parts and labor.
Ignition­controlled Door Locks This is an added security feature. If your Remote Car Starter was installed with the IgnitionControlled Door Locks option, the doors will automatically be locked as soon as the ignition key is
turned to the IGNITION ON (RUN) position while the brakes are pressed. The remote car starter will
also lock any door that was unlocked and opened (then closed) the next time the break pedal is
pressed. When the key is turned to the OFF position, the doors will automatically be unlocked.
Secure Lock (Disabled by default.) Before your vehicle can be remote-started, the factory security system must
first be disarmed. The Secure Lock feature may be required on certain vehicle models with factory
security systems that automatically unlock the doors when the security system is disarmed.
To keep your vehicle protected when the factory security system is disarmed for a remote start,
Secure Lock will relock your doors as soon as the vehicle is started. Once the engine is shut down
by remote or after its runtime has expired, Secure Lock will also rearm your factory security system
and relock the doors.

Troubleshooting Poor Transmitting Range Many factors may affect the operating range of the transmitter. Some of these are:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
The condition of the battery in the transmitter.
The operating environment (for example: downtown radio-frequency noise, airports, cellular
phone towers…).
Metal: any type of metal will affect operating range. This includes the vehicle itself.
The shape of the vehicle can affect range as well (vans in general have less range).
The shape of the roof and A-pillars brings about considerable radio-frequency deflection (in
this case, the signal from the remote control). As a result, the direction in which the vehicle is
facing in relation to the remote control can affect the range. Straight on (standing in front of
the vehicle) generally gives you the greatest range; the second best performance is from the
back. Using the remote control from either side of the vehicle will usually give the lowest
range.
The range will be significantly lower in a crowded parking lot than in open space.
Always hold the transmitter high, approximately at shoulder height.
The operating range will be somewhat lower on vehicles equipped with an aftermarket or
factory alarm.
