Using Your System
The buttons described in all instructions in this manual correspond
to a standard configuration transmitter, unless otherwise specified.
Arming
You can arm the security system by pressing
for one second.
When the system arms, you will hear a short siren sound (chirp)
and the parking lights will flash once. If the power door locks are
6
© 2001 Directed Electronics, Inc.
controlled by the system, the doors will also lock. Once armed, the
status LED will flash once per second to indicate that the system
is actively protecting your vehicle. If you hear a second chirp after
arming and notice that the status LED is flashing in a grouped pattern, this signals Bypass Notification. Bypass Notification is
described in detail in the Diagnostics section of this manual.
Your security system can also be programmed for Passive Arming.
With Passive Arming, the system automatically arms itself 30 seconds after the ignition has been turned off and the last door has
been closed. During the 30-second Passive Arming countdown, the
status LED will flash twice as fast as it does when the system is
armed. If the system is programmed for Passive Arming, care must
be taken to prevent the keys from being locked in the vehicle.
NOTE: If any protected entry point, such as a door or switch-protected
trunk or hood, is open, Passive Arming will not engage. Additionally, each
time a sensor is triggered during the Passive Arming countdown, the
countdown starts over.
Arming the security system protects your vehicle in the following ways:
■
Light impacts trigger a warn away response, causing the siren
to chirp and the parking lights to flash for a few seconds.
■
Heavy impacts trip a trigger sequence, which consists of the
siren sounding continuously and the parking lights flashing
for 30 seconds.
■
If a door is opened, the siren immediately starts chirping and
the parking lights start flashing to provide an instant
response. Three seconds later, the siren output changes to a
continuous blast. This two-stage progressive response allows
© 2001 Directed Electronics, Inc.

you time to disarm the security system with your remote
transmitter, in case the door is inadvertently opened while
the system is armed.
■
Turning on the ignition key triggers the same two-stage progressive response as opening a door.
■
The starter interrupt prevents the vehicle’s starter from cranking.
Disarming
Press
to disarm the security system when it is already armed.
If the power locks are controlled by the system, the doors will also
unlock. Disarming is confirmed when the parking lights flash twice
and the siren emits two chirps. The status LED will also stop flashing. The siren chirping either four or five times when disarming
indicates Tamper Alert, which is described in the Diagnostics
section of this guide.
Disarming Without a Transmitter
If your remote transmitter is lost or damaged, you can manually
disarm the security system. To disarm the system without a transmitter, you must have the vehicle's ignition key and know where
the Valet switch is located. Be sure to check with your installer at
the time of installation for the location of the Valet switch.
To disarm the security system, turn
the ignition key on and press the
Valet switch within 15 seconds. The
system should now disarm. If the
DRW-35
system does not disarm, you may
8
© 2001 Directed Electronics, Inc.
have waited too long to press the Valet switch; turn the ignition
off and repeat the process.
Location of Valet Switch_________________________________
Panic Mode
If you are threatened in or near your vehicle, you can press
for 1.5 seconds to trigger Panic Mode on your security system and
attract attention. The siren will sound and the parking lights will
flash for 30 seconds. To stop Panic Mode at any time, press
, or
,
on the remote.
Remote-Controlled Silent Arm/Disarm
Use the remote-controlled silent arm/disarm to temporarily turn
off the arm or disarm chirps by briefly pressing
before either
arming or disarming. The confirmation chirp(s) will then be eliminated for that one operation only. To permanently turn off the arm
and disarm chirps, contact your installation dealer.
NOTE: The warn away response to lighter impacts is bypassed if the system is armed using the silent arm/disarm. This ensures that the siren
does not chirp in an environment where you do not want chirps to be
emitted. The system is still capable of being triggered by heavier impacts;
only the warn away response generated by light impacts is bypassed.
Valet Mode
Valet Mode prevents your security system from arming and
triggering either automatically or with the remote transmitter.
In Valet Mode, the system will not arm, but all convenience
functions (door locks, trunk release, etc.) remain operational.
© 2001 Directed Electronics, Inc.
9
This feature is useful when washing or servicing your vehicle.
You can access Valet Mode either manually or from the remote.
To enter or exit Valet Mode with the Valet switch:
1. Turn the ignition on.
2. Turn the ignition off.
3. Press and release the
Valet switch within 10
DRW-35
seconds.
The status LED will light solidly if you are entering Valet Mode and
will turn off if you are exiting Valet Mode.
Remote-Controlled Valet
You can also enter or exit Valet Mode by using the remote
transmitter:
1. Open any vehicle door.
2. Press
.
3. Press
.
4. Press
again.
The status LED will light solidly if you have entered Valet Mode and
will turn off if you have exited Valet Mode.

Nuisance Prevention® Circuitry
Your security system has Nuisance Prevention Circuitry™ (NPC™) to
prevent annoying false alarms. This circuitry is designed to prevent
repetitive trigger sequences due to faulty door pinswitches or environmental conditions such as thunder, jackhammers, airport
noise, etc.
Here's how it works: If the alarm is triggered by the same sensor
or switch three times within a 60 minute period, your system
interprets 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) for 60
minutes. If the bypassed sensor is triggered again while it is
already being bypassed, the 60-minute bypass period will start over,
ensuring that a sensor that is continually being triggered will
remain bypassed.
The vehicle doors are protected differently by NPC™. If your security system is triggered by an open door for three, full 30-second
cycles (one and one half minutes), the system will bypass the
doors until the trigger ceases.
NOTE: Arming and disarming the system does not reset the NPC™. The
only ways to reset a bypassed zone are for that zone not to be triggered
for 60 minutes or to turn the ignition key on. When testing your system,
it is important to remember that NPC™ can cause zones to be bypassed
and appear to not work. If five chirps are heard when disarming the system, NPC™ has been engaged. To clear the NPC™ memory, simply turn the
ignition key on.

Diagnostics
The microprocessor at the heart of your system has the ability to
constantly monitor all of the switches and sensors connected to it.
It can detect any faulty switches or sensors and prevent them from
disabling the entire system. It can also record and report any triggers that occur when you are away from your vehicle.
Arming Diagnostics
If the system is armed at the same time that an input is active
(door opening, sensor triggering, etc.), you will hear one chirp to
indicate arming and a second chirp a few seconds later to indicate
Bypass Notification. A Bypass Notification chirp means that the system ignores the input that was active when the system was armed,
until that input ceases. Three seconds after that input ceases, the
system will resume normal monitoring. For example, if your vehicle
has an interior light exit delay and you arm the system before the
light turns off, you may hear a Bypass Notification chirp. Three seconds after the light turns off, however, normal monitoring resumes.
NOTE: Bypass Notification does not occur when the system is in silent
arm/disarm mode or if the chirps have been programmed not to sound.
Disarming Diagnostics
Your system has a Tamper Alert feature that notifies you of system
triggers that occur while you are away from your vehicle. If you
hear four chirps when you disarm, this indicates that the system
12
© 2001 Directed Electronics, Inc.
was triggered in your absence. If you hear five chirps when you
disarm, this indicates that a specific zone was triggered so many
times that the NPC™ has bypassed that zone. In both cases, the
pattern of the flashing status LED indicates which zone was triggered (see Table of Zones). The LED does not, however, report when
warn away responses have activated; it only reports triggered
sequences. The system retains this information in its memory and
will continue to chirp four or five times each time the system is
disarmed, until the next time the ignition is turned on.
Table of Zones
A zone is represented by the number of LED flashes used by the
system to identify a particular type of input. Standard input assignments are listed in the following table, along with spaces to write
in any optional sensors or switches that you have had installed.

Stealth Coding
Technology
™
The receiver and transmitter use mathematical formulas called
algorithms to change their codes each time the transmitter is used.
This Stealth Coding™ Technology has been developed to increase
the security of the unit. By following this set code sequence, the
receiver and transmitter stay synchronized, even if the transmitter
is used out of range of the vehicle. If, however, the transmitter is
pressed many times out of range, or the battery is removed, the
transmitter may get temporarily out of sync and fail to operate the
system. To resynchronize the transmitter, simply press
several
times within range of the vehicle. The system will automatically
resynchronize and the transmitter will respond 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.

Programming Options
Programming options control your system's normal, operational
set-up. Most options do not require additional parts, but some may
require installation labor.
This system's programming options are listed below, with the factory default settings in bold:
■
Active arming (only with the transmitter) or passive arming
(automatic arming 30 seconds after the last vehicle door is
closed).
■
Active door locking (only when arming with the transmitter)
or passive door locking (selectable only when Passive Arming
has been programmed).
■
Arming and disarming confirmation siren chirps can be programmed on or off.
■
Ignition controlled door lock feature, on or off. With this feature on, the doors will lock three seconds after the ignition
key is turned on, and unlock when the ignition is turned off.
The system also prevents the doors from locking when the
ignition is turned on while any vehicle door is open.

Security & Convenience
Expansions
Listed below are some of the many expansion options available for
use with your system. Please consult your dealer for a detailed
explanation of all the available options.
Audio Sensor: Metal on glass, glass cracking, and breaking glass
produce distinctive acoustic signatures. The 506T audio sensor uses
a microphone to detect these sounds, and then analyzes them with
proprietary acoustic software to determine if the glass has been
tampered with or broken.
Backup Battery: The 520T Backup Battery ensures that the system
stays armed, triggers the alarm and keeps the optional starter
interrupt active if main battery power is disconnected.
Field Disturbance Sensor: An invisible dome of coverage is established by the 508D "radar" sensor. The security system will respond to
any intrusions into this field by initiating the triggered sequence.
Power Locks: This system offers lock outputs that can control
some manufacturers' power door lock systems. For other systems,
additional parts may be required.
Power Trunk Release: The
output of the system can operate
a factory power release for the vehicle's trunk or hatch. An optional relay is required. If the factory release is not power-activated,
then DEI's 522T trunk release solenoid can be added in most cases.
16
© 2001 Directed Electronics, Inc.
Power Window Control: Automatic power window control is provided with the 529T and 530T systems. These options operate
power windows, by rolling them up, down, or both up and down.
The 530T also offers one-touch switch operation.
Valet™ Start System: For the ultimate in convenience, the Valet
Start System can start your vehicle, monitor engine functions and
activate your climate control system with a push of a button! Overrev protection, open-hood lockout, brake pedal shutoff and
automatic timer shutoff are included. (This option is available only
for fuel-injected, automatic-transmission vehicles.)
Installation Options
Installation options may require additional parts or labor. Please
consult your dealer.
Progressive Unlocking: With electric power door locks, the system
can be configured so that when disarmed, only the driver’s door
unlocks. A second press of the disarm button within 15 seconds of
disarming unlocks the remaining doors.
Horn Honk: If connected, the horn will sound if the alarm is either
triggered by an intrusion or activated by Panic Mode. (In most
vehicles, this feature requires that an additional relay be
installed.)
© 2001 Directed Electronics, Inc.
17
Interior Light Illumination: The interior domelight can be configured to illuminate for 30 seconds after the alarm is disarmed. If
the system is rearmed during that 30-second period, the interior
light illumination will terminate until the alarm is disarmed once
again.
Glossary of Terms
Control Module: The "brain" of your security system. Usually hidden underneath the dash area of the vehicle. It houses the microprocessor that monitors your vehicle and controls all of the security system’s functions.
Fault-Proof Starter Interrupt: Located on-board the control module, this is an automatic switch controlled by the security system
that prevents the vehicle's starter from cranking whenever the
security system is armed. The vehicle is never prevented from
cranking when the security system is disarmed, in Valet Mode, or if
the starter interrupt fails.
Input: Any physical connection to the security system. An input
can be provided through a sensor, pinswitch or by existing systems
in the vehicle, such as ignition or courtesy lights.
LED: A red light mounted inside the vehicle, at a location determined by the installer. The LED indicates the status of your system
and also reports triggers and faults in the system or sensors.
18
© 2001 Directed Electronics, Inc.
Shock Sensor: A dual-stage shock sensor, located on-board the
control module, that detects impacts to the vehicle.
Siren: A noise generating device, usually installed in the engine
compartment of the vehicle. The siren generates the chirps and
tones heard when the system is triggered.
Transmitter: A hand-held, remote control that operates the various functions of the security system.
Trigger or Triggered Sequence: The "setting off" or "tripping" of
the alarm. A triggered sequence consists of the siren sounding and
the parking lights flashing for 30 seconds.
Valet Switch: A small, push-button switch mounted inside the
vehicle, at a location determined by the installer. This switch is
used to override the alarm when a transmitter is lost or damaged,
or can be used to put the system into Valet Mode.
Warn Away Response: Light impacts to the vehicle generate the
warn away response, which consists of several seconds of siren
chirps and flashing parking lights.

unique. Each input to the system is connected to a particular
zone. Two or more inputs may share the same zone.
