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.

®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.

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.

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

■
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.

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.

Security & Convenience
Expansions
Listed below are some of the many expansion options available.
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. Usually hidden underneath the dash area of the vehicle. The control unit houses the
microprocessor which monitors your vehicle and controls all system functions.
Immobiliser Circuit - A vital circuit that prevents your vehicle
from starting when the unit is Immobilised or armed. The Maxx 3
Immobilises two independent circuits for double the security and
protection.
Input - A physical connection to the system. An input can be provided by a sensor, pinswitch or by existing systems in the vehicle,
such as ignition or courtesy lights.
®2002 Directed Electronics, Inc.
29
LED - A red light mounted at a discretionary location inside the
vehicle. It is used to indicate the status of your system.
Transmitter - A hand-held, remote control which operates the various functions of your system.
Trigger or Triggered Sequence - This is what happens when the
alarm “goes off” or “trips.” The triggered sequence of your system
consists of the siren sounding and indicators flashing.
Valet Switch - A small push-button switch mounted at a discretionary location inside the vehicle. It is used to override the builtin Immobiliser when a transmitter has been lost or damaged, and
to enter Valet Mode.
Warning Zone Response - If a dual-zone sensor is added to the
system and the light touch or outer-zone trigger is activated, the
system will generate the warning zone response. This consists of
several seconds of siren chirps.
Zone - A zone is a separate input that the alarm can recognise as
unique. Each input to the system is connected to a particular
zone. Often two or more inputs may share the same zone.
