What Is Included ■ One Avital Maxx3 Control Unit ■ One Valet Switch ■ One Status LED ■ One 4-Button/10-Channel Remote Control ■ One 2-Button/3-Channel Remote Control ■ Two Ultrasonic Sensors ■ One Battery Back-up Siren ■ One Certificate of Installation ■ Two Avital Window Decals Important Information Congratulations on your purchase of the Thatcham Evaluated Avital Maxx3, our top of the range, vehicle security/convenience system. To fully benefit from the capabilities of your system, we encourage you to read the Owner’s Guide thoroughly. If you have any problems or questions, consult the dealer you purchased the system from. To locate an authorised Avital dealer in your area, call our UK office using the number noted in the back of this guide. ®2002 Directed Electronics, Inc. 5 Your Warranty It is necessary to retain your proof of purchase, which reflects that the product was installed by an authorised dealer. For full details regarding your warranty coverage, please refer to the Consumer Warranty section of this guide. Remote Controls Included with your system: one AviGlo 4-button/10-channel remote and one AviGlo 2-button/3-channel remote. Once exposed to light, the AviGlo remote control buttons will glow, making them visible in the dark. The remote control is a miniature transmitter powered by a small (+) 3 volt lithium battery. Obstructions, electrical or radio interference, weather conditions, window tint, or a discharged battery can reduce range. Your transmitter is the key to your system and can be used to arm and disarm your alarm, lock and unlock your doors, open your boot, and control optional accessories such as a remote engine starter*, window roll-up, and garage door opener. Your system can accept up to four AviGlo remote controls. Additional remote controls and remote control batteries can be purchased from any authorised Avital dealer or by calling the UK office (freephone number noted in the back of the guide). * This accessory is not evaluated by Thatcham. 6 ®2002 Directed Electronics, Inc. System Maintenance The Maxx3 system requires no maintenance except for remote control battery replacement when they reach the end of their useful life. When the battery weakens, operating range will be reduced and the LED will dim. To replace your remote control battery use the following procedure. Remote Control Battery Replacement To replace the battery in your AviGlo remote control, follow the instructions below. 1. Carefully pry apart the two halves of the remote control with a small flat-bladed screwdriver. The bottom right-hand corner of the remote casing has a small indent to allow the screwdriver access. 2. The lithium battery is the round silver disc, about the size of a five pence piece. Remove the old battery from the metal clip. You should note that the (+) side of the battery should face up and the (-) side should face the circuit board. Slide the new replacement battery into the metal clip. 3. Re-align the two halves of the enclosure and snap together. ®2002 Directed Electronics, Inc. 7 System Features Stealth Coding Technology Stealth Coding technology offers the most advanced protection available against code-grabbing devices which thieves may use to record the digital code transmitted by your remote control. When you leave the area, thieves can then play back the code to unlock the doors and de-activate your system. Avital’s remote controls with Stealth Coding randomly change the code every time you use them, and your system will not respond if any code is re-transmitted. This technology makes code-grabbing devices useless. Electronic Scan Prevention (ESP) Your system includes Electronic Scan Prevention (ESP), which blocks electronic scanner codes preventing unauthorised operation of your system. A thief could use an electronic “scanner” to continuously scan through thousands of different transmitter codes in an attempt to find one that will disarm your system. Your Maxx3 system uses ESP technology to render this type of attack useless. Interior Light Illumination When the alarm system is remotely disarmed, the vehicle interior light(s) will turn on for 30 seconds or until the ignition key is turned on. 8 ®2002 Directed Electronics, Inc. Passive Immobilisation The built-in Dual Circuit Immobiliser will passively arm (indicated by a slow LED flash), 30 seconds after the ignition is turned off. (This feature is a Thatcham and EC requirement and, therefore, is not user-programmable.) To disarm the Immobiliser when it has Passively Immobilised, use the remote control to arm and then disarm the system, or turn the ignition on and press the button. Valet Switch The Valet switch is a small push-button switch that allows you to control all of the system’s programmable features and enter your override PIN code. (See User-Programmable Features section of this guide.) This switch can only be controlled in conjunction with your ignition key. NOTE: Make sure the dealer has shown you where the Valet switch is located. You will need to disarm the system with the Valet switch in the event of a lost or stolen remote control. Keyless Entry in Valet Mode While the system is in the Valet mode, you can still use your remote control to lock and unlock the doors as well as activate any optional accessories, such as boot release or remote engine starter. Ultrasonic Sensors Your Maxx3 security system incorporates two Ultrasonic sensors, which are most commonly mounted at the top of the A-pillars fac®2002 Directed Electronics, Inc. 9 ing the rear of the vehicle. These sensors detect movement inside the vehicle by sensing air disturbance. They should trigger the alarm if a thief gained access to the interior of your vehicle. Instant Remote Control Code Deletion In the event of a lost or stolen remote control, all remote controls can be erased from the systems memory preventing unauthorised system operation. (See the Programming Table for Remote Controls section of this guide.) One-Step Remote Control Code Learning Your system allows you to add new remote controls in one step. (See the Programming Table for Remote Controls section of this guide.) Alarm State Memory If your vehicle battery is disconnected and later reconnected, the system will automatically return to its last state before power was removed, whether it was armed, disarmed, or in Valet Mode. For example, if a mechanic were to disconnect the battery while the alarm was disarmed or in Valet Mode, the alarm will not trigger when the battery is reconnected. If power is removed and then restored while the alarm is armed, the systems battery back up siren will instantly sound, the indicator lights will flash and the Dual Circuit Immobiliser will still be enabled, preventing the vehicle from being started. 10 ®2002 Directed Electronics Transmitter Functions Accessory Outputs and Button Assignments These outputs allow you to add optional remote-controlled accessories to your system such as a remote engine starter, boot release, window roll-up, garage door opener, or fuel filler door release. To activate your optional accessories press the corresponding remote control buttons shown below. You can assign any remote control function to any button sequence.

Active arming means the alarm is armed using the remote control. Passive arming means the alarm will automatically arm itself. (See the Programming Table for System Features section of this guide.) Active Arming* Press the ■ button for one to two seconds. The following will occur: The siren will chirp twice and the indicator lights will flash twice. The doors will lock.* The LED will double flash, pause, double flash, pause, etc., and the built in AutoImmobiliser will disable two vital engine circuits. * Requires connection to your vehicle’s existing central locking system. Passive Arming The Maxx3 has three programmable options relating to passive arming of the alarm. A full description of the operation and programming options for the passive arming feature can be found on page 21. Disarming the System (if alarm is not sounding) Press the ■ button for one to two seconds. The following will occur: The siren will chirp once and the indicator lights will flash once. The doors will unlock.* The interior lights will turn on 12 ®2002 Directed Electronics, Inc. (for 30 seconds or until the ignition is turned on). The immobilised engine circuits will be re-enabled to allow you to start your car. The LED will turn off. * Requires connection to your vehicle’s existing central locking system. Disarming the System (if alarm is sounding) Press the button for 1-2 seconds. This will silence the siren only. It will not disarm the system or unlock* the doors. A second press of the button for one to two seconds is required to fully disarm the system. * Requires connection to your vehicle's existing central locking system. Silent Arm/Disarm Pressing the button for one to two seconds will arm and dis- arm your system the same as the button, except without the siren chirp confirmation.

If the ignition key is OFF, the doors will unlock. ®2002 Directed Electronics, Inc. 13 To De-activate: 1. Press the button for one to two seconds. 2. The siren will shut off and the indicator lights will stop flashing. Two-Stage Unlock Capability If the optional Two-Stage Unlock feature was installed, press the button for one to two seconds and only the drivers door will unlock. Within three seconds, press the button again and the passenger door(s) will unlock. NOTE: If you opted to have the Two-Stage unlock feature installed, then unlocking your vehicle from the drivers door with the key will not unlock the passenger door(s). They will have to be unlocked manually. Sensor Bypass If you wish to arm the alarm system but leave a window or sunroof open or a pet or passenger inside the vehicle, you will need to bypass the Ultrasonic Sensor and any optional sensors by following the procedure noted below: 1. Arm the alarm with the 2. At anytime after the alarm system has been armed, press the and 3. or buttons. buttons together. To indicate sensor(s) bypass the indicator lights flash once. NOTE: The next time the alarm system is armed the sensors will be reenabled automatically. 14 ®2002 Directed Electronics, Inc. Protected Valet Mode You should place your system in Protected Valet Mode whenever your vehicle is being fueled or washed, or whenever the passive Immobilisation or arming is not required for a short period. The Valet PIN code number for your system is noted on the back of this guide. Note: To change your PIN code refer to How to Change Your PIN Code section of this guide. If the system was armed and a thief were to break into your vehicle and begin entering codes at random in an attempt to disarm the alarm, the system will lock out (indicated by a triple flash sequence of the LED) and begin sounding the siren for two minutes. During this period the system will ignore further attempts to enter the code. Even a correct code entry will be ignored. The siren can be silenced and the system disarmed by pressing the or button on the remote control two times. NOTE: The PIN number noted on the back of this guide is your emergency override code. Therefore, Do NOT leave the guide inside the vehicle for a thief to find. To Turn On Protected Valet Mode: 1. Turn the ignition key to the ON position. 2. Within 10 seconds, enter the first number in your PIN. Press and release the Valet switch the same number of times as the first digit in your PIN. Example: If your PIN is 2345, press the Valet switch two times. ®2002 Directed Electronics, Inc. 15 3. Turn the ignition key OFF. 4. Turn the ignition key to the ON position. 5. Enter the second number in your PIN. Press and release the Valet switch the same number of times as the second digit in your PIN. Example: If your PIN is 2345, press the Valet switch three times. 6. Turn the ignition key OFF. 7. Turn the ignition key to the ON position 8. Enter the third number in your PIN. Press and release the Valet switch the same number of times as the third digit in your PIN. Example: If your PIN is 2345, press the Valet switch four times. 9. Turn the ignition key OFF. 10. Turn the ignition key to the ON position. 11. Enter the last number in your PIN. Press and release the Valet switch the same number of times as the last digit in your PIN. Example: If your PIN is 2345, press the Valet switch five times. 12. Turn the ignition key OFF. If you have entered the correct code you will hear two chirps (one short and one long). Should you hear five rapid chirps, the correct code has not been entered. Begin entering your PIN from the beginning. 16 ®2002 Directed Electronics, Inc. 13. To enter Valet mode, now turn the ignition on and press and hold the Valet switch for three seconds until the LED illuminates constantly. To Turn Off Protected Valet Mode: 1. Turn your ignition key to the ON position or start the engine. The LED will turn off to indicate automatic exit of Valet mode. (To comply with Thatcham regulations, a permanent override mode is not allowed.) How to Change Your PIN Code Your system PIN Code is located on the back of this guide. Should you wish to change this code to a number that is easier to remember, use the following procedure. 1. Write down the new four-digit PIN number you wish to use. 2. Look at the programming table on page 26. To change the first two digits of your code, refer to programming branch number 17 and to change the last two digits, refer to programming branch number 18. 3. To enter programming mode: ■ Enter your existing PIN code number by following steps 1-12 in the Protected Valet Mode section of this guide. ®2002 Directed Electronics, Inc. 17 ■ Turn the ignition key to the ON position, then press and release your Valet switch 17 times. You will hear a chirp each time you press the switch to help you count. ■ When you reach branch number 17, stop and follow the instructions in the “Secondary Action” column in the programming table. Example: If you would like the first two digits of your new code to be one and one you would press button once and button once. To enter the digits zero and zero you would press the and buttons together and go to the next step. 4. To enter the next two digits press the Valet switch once (you will hear one chirp) to move from program branch number 17 to 18. Stop and follow the instructions in the "Secondary Action" column in the programming table. Example: If the last two digits of your new code are two and two then press the button twice and the button twice. To enter the digits one and zero, you would press the button once and then go to step five. The system will assume the second digit is a zero as you did not press the button to enter a number. 5. If you are satisfied that the code you entered is the correct one then turn off the ignition to exit programming and test your new code. Should you make a mistake during any part of this procedure, then simply turn off the ignition and begin the sequence again. The system will revert to the original code. 18 ®2002 Directed Electronics, Inc.

Arming of the alarm. Disarmed and there was an intrusion attempt. Armed and a door is ajar. Armed and there is a sensor input active (automatically bypassed). Armed and there is a boot, bonnet, or closed circuit trigger input active (automatically bypassed). ®2002 Directed Electronics, Inc. User-Programmable Features Passive Arming Turn the ignition key OFF, exit the vehicle, and close the doors. When the interior lights turn off, the LED will begin flashing rapidly to indicate the alarm has begun it’s passive arming countdown. After 60 seconds, the siren will chirp twice, the indicator lights will flash twice, and the system’s LED will begin the doubleflash sequence explained in the Active Arming section. NOTE: The alarm can be actively armed with the or button on the remote control at any time during the passive arming countdown. Passive Arming With Door Lock The system is factory preset not to lock the doors when the alarm passively arms (unless Auto-rearm and lock is programmed on) to prevent the keys and remote from being locked in the vehicle. If you prefer, you can easily program the alarm to automatically lock* the doors every time the alarm passively arms. (See the Programming Table for System Features section of this guide.) *Requires connection to your vehicle's existing central locking system. ®2002 Directed Electronics, Inc. 21 Auto-Rearm and Lock When Auto-rearm and lock is used in conjunction with the passive arming feature (i.e. both are turned ON) the following will occur: ■ If after driving you turn the ignition off and exit the vehicle by opening and closing a door, the system will passive arm but NOT lock the doors in case you have left your keys inside the car. ■ If the alarm is disarmed or AutoImmobilised only and you open and then close a door, the system will passive arm but NOT lock the doors, again in case you left your keys inside. ■ If you disarmed the alarm but did not open a door, the system will auto-rearm and lock the doors.* As you did not open a door the system assumes you are outside the vehicle and the keys are not inside. * Requires connection to the vehicle’s existing central locking system. Ignition-Controlled Door Lock/Unlock For the ultimate in security and convenience, the system is programmed to automatically lock your doors when the ignition key is turned ON or the engine is started*, and will unlock when the ignition key is turned OFF. This feature can be programmed ON or OFF. (See the Programming Table for System Features section of this guide.) NOTE: If this feature is turned on and you need to open a door to let someone in or out of the car when the ignition is on, you can press the button to unlock the doors and again to re-lock after the doors have been closed. * Requires connection to the vehicle’s existing central locking system. 22 ®2002 Directed Electronics, Inc. Long-Term Silent Arm/Disarm This feature allows you to completely disable the arm/disarm siren chirps until you decide to restore them. (See the Programming Table for System Features section of this guide.) Door Ajar Indication When you remotely arm the alarm system and a door is ajar, the siren will chirp twice, then three times (the indicators will flash the same number of times as the siren chirps). This feature provides audible and visual indication to prevent battery drain if a door was inadvertently left open. (See the Programming Table for System Features section of this guide.) NOTE: If your vehicle has an interior light delay, this feature will be turned off. Dual-Sensor Trigger Mode The system has the facility to add extra sensors such as the 508D Proximity sensor. If an additional sensor has been added to the system and the Dual-Sensor Trigger Mode feature is turned ON, the system will require both the built-in Ultrasonic sensor and the additional sensor to be activated at the same time in order to trigger the alarm system. This is especially useful on convertible vehicles as the alarm can be armed even when the roof is down or at times when you wish to arm the alarm and leave the windows open. ®2002 Directed Electronics, Inc. 23 How to Set the UserProgrammable Features All system features and remote control features are accomplished by turning the ignition key to the ON position or starting the engine, entering your Personal Identification Number (PIN) and pressing the Valet switch a preset number of times to access the feature you wish to program.

Please consult your dealer for a complete explanation of all the options available to you. ■ Audio Sensor - Metal on glass, glass cracking, and breaking glass produce distinctive acoustic signatures. The 506T audio sensor uses a microphone to pick up sounds, then analyses 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 Immobilisation circuits active if the main battery is disconnected. ■ Bonnet Lock - Prevents the vehicle’s bonnet from being opened without a key, keeping thieves away from the system’s siren, the battery connections, and other components under the bonnet. ■ Field Disturbance Sensor - An invisible dome of coverage is established by installing the 508D “radar” sensor. Your system can react to any intrusions into this field with the full triggered sequence. ■ Remote Starter - A remote engine starting system designed for fuel-injected automatic transmission vehicles. The 551T is activated by pressing a spare button on your remote control. NOTE: The Remote Starter has not been evaluated by Thatcham. 28 ®2002 Directed Electronics, Inc. ■ Electric Boot Release - The accessory output of the system can operate a factory electric release for the vehicle’s boot or hatch. Although the on-board circuit can control some electric factory releases, an optional relay is usually required. If the factory release is not electric-activated, Directed®'s 522T boot release solenoid can often be added. ■ Electric Window Control - Automatic electric window control is provided with the 529T and 530T systems. These can operate electric windows, and can roll them up automatically when the system is armed, roll them down, or both up and down. Glossary of Terms Control Unit - The “brain” of your system.
