that the system does not unintentionally remote start the
vehicle. THE USER MUST INSTALL A CARBON
MONOXIDE DETECTOR IN OR ABOUT THE
LIVING AREA ADJACENT TO THE VEHICLE. ALL
DOORS LEADING FROM ADJACENT LIVING AREAS
TO THE ENCLOSED OR PARTIALLY ENCLOSED
VEHICLE STORAGE AREA MUST AT ALL TIMES
REMAIN CLOSED. These precautions are the sole responsibility of the user.
➤
Use of this product in a manner contrary to its intended
mode of operation may result in property damage, personal
injury, or death. (1) Never remotely start the vehicle with the
vehicle in gear, and (2) Never remotely start the vehicle with
the keys in the ignition. The user must also have the neutral
safety feature of the vehicle periodically checked, wherein the
vehicle must not remotely start while the car is in gear. This
testing should be performed by an authorized Directed dealer
in accordance with the Safety Check outlined in the product
installation guide. If the vehicle starts in gear, cease remote
start operation immediately and consult with the authorized
Directed dealer to fix the problem.
➤

10
© 2005 directed electronics—all rights reser ved
remote start unit has not been properly installed. The remote
start module must be removed or the installer must properly
reinstall the remote start system so that the vehicle does not
start in gear. All installations must be performed by an authorized Directed dealer. OPERATION OF THE REMOTE
START MODULE IF THE VEHICLE STARTS IN GEAR
IS CONTRARY TO ITS INTENDED MODE OF OPER ATION. OPERATING THE REMOTE START SYSTEM
UNDER THESE CONDITIONS MAY RESULT IN
PROPERTY DAMAGE OR PERSONAL INJURY. YOU
MUST IMMEDIATELY CEASE THE USE OF THE
UNIT AND SEEK THE ASSISTANCE OF AN AUTHO RIZED DIRECTED D E A L E R T O R E P A I R O R
DISCONNECT THE INSTALLED REMOTE START
MODULE. DIRECTED WILL NOT BE HELD
RESPONSIBLE OR PAY FOR INSTALLATION OR
REINSTALLATION COSTS.
➜ active arming
You can arm the system by pressing
of your transmitter for
one second. When the system arms, you will hear a short siren
sound, or chirp, and see the parking lights flash once. If the power
door locks are controlled by the system, the doors will also lock.
While the system is armed, the status LED will flash approximately
once per second, indicating that the system is actively protecting
your vehicle. If you hear a second chirp after arming and note that
the status LED is flashing in groups, see the Diagnostics Section of
this guide. This extra chirp is called Bypass Notification.
© 2005 directed electronics—all rights reser ved
11
➜ passive arming
The system can be programmed to arm itself automatically (called
passive arming). If the system is programmed for passive arming, it
will automatically arm 30 seconds after the ignition is turned off
and the system detects that you have left the vehicle by opening and
closing a door. Whenever the system is in its 30-second passive
arming countdown, the status LED will flash twice as fast as it does
when the system is armed. At the 20-second point of the countdown, the siren will chirp to indicate that the system is about to
arm. At the 30-second point, the parking lights will flash to indicate
that the system is armed.
note: If any protected entry point (such as a door or a
switch-protected trunk or hood) is open, the system will
not passively arm (unless forced passive arming is programmed on. See Programming Options section).
When armed your vehicle is protected as follows:
➤
➤
➤
12
Light impacts trigger the Warn Away® signal. When triggered, the siren chirps and the parking lights flash for a few
seconds.
Heavy impacts trip a Triggered Sequence. The sequence
consists of the siren sounding continuously and the parking
lights flashing for a pre-programmed period, which can
range in duration from 1 to 180 seconds.
If a door is opened, the system will immediately start
chirping the siren and flashing the parking lights. Three
seconds later, the siren output changes to a continuous blast.
This progressive response gives you time to disarm the sys© 2005 directed electronics—all rights reser ved
➤
➤
tem with your transmitter if you inadvertently open the door
while the system is armed, while still providing instant response (even if the door is immediately closed).
Turning on the ignition key will trip the same progressive response as opening a door.
The optional starter kill prevents the vehicle’s starter from
cranking.
➜ multi-level security arming
Multi-Level Security Arming allows you to select which of the
system's inputs or sensors will be active and which will be
bypassed when the system is armed. (See Table of Zones section
of this guide.) Pressing
(only in Standard Configuration)
again within five seconds of arming the system will activate the
Multi-Level Security feature. Each time
is pressed again, a
different security level is selected. The different security levels are
selected as follows:
➤
Press
once: The siren chirps once. The system is armed.
➤
Press
a second time within five seconds: The siren chirps
twice followed by a long chirp. Zone 2 is now bypassed.
➤
Press
a third time within five seconds: The siren chirps
three times followed by a long chirp. Zone 4 is now bypassed.
➤
Press
a fourth time within five seconds: The siren chirps four
times followed by a long chirp. Zones 2 and 4 are now bypassed.
➤
Press
a fifth time within five seconds: The siren chirps
five times followed by a long chirp. All input zones, except
the ignition, are now bypassed.
© 2005 directed electronics—all rights reser ved
13
note: Multi-Level Security Arming only applies to a single arming cycle. Once the system is disarmed and then
re-armed, all the zones will be active again.
➜ arming while driving
Your security system can be armed while driving the vehicle!
Simply press
on the transmitter for two seconds while the
vehicle is running. The siren will chirp once to indicate that the
security system is armed, and then once more to indicate that the
ignition is on. The system will not respond to any input except
the door triggers, and the starter kill relay (if installed) will not be
activated. Once you have arrived at your destination, the system
will disarm when the ignition is turned off. The siren will chirp
twice and the LED will then stop flashing. The system can also
be disarmed at any time by pressing
.
➜ disarming
To disarm the security system, press
. You will hear two
chirps, and the parking lights will flash twice. If the power locks
are controlled by the system, the doors will also unlock. The siren
chirping either four or five times when disarming indicates
Tamper Alert, which is described in the Diagnostics Section of
this guide.
➜ high security disarm
This security system offers High Security Disarm. High Security
14
© 2005 directed electronics—all rights reser ved
Disarm is a feature that makes it possible to silence and reset the
system while it is triggering, without disarming the system. If the
system is triggered and the siren has been sounding for longer
than six seconds, pressing
on the remote transmitter will
stop the trigger and return the unit to the armed state. The
system will not disarm, but rather reset. This prevents you from
disabling the system should you wish to disarm it without visually checking the vehicle. Pressing
after resetting the system
will disarm the system; pressing this button during the first six
seconds of the triggered sequence will disarm the security system
immediately. The six second timer is provided for your convenience, in case the system is accidentally triggered.
➜ disarming without a transmitter
If your remote transmitter is lost or damaged, you can manually
disarm your vehicle 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 both the location and the preset response (1-5 presses) of the Valet® switch.
© 2005 directed electronics—all rights reser ved
15
To disarm the security system,
turn the ignition to the ON position. Press the Valet button the
preset number of times (one to
DRW-35
five times) within 15 seconds.
After five seconds, the system will
disarm. If the system does not
disarm, you may have waited too
long; turn the ignition off and on and try again.
Location of Valet Button_________________________________
Number of Presses_____________________________________
important! The Valet button can be programmed to
respond to 1-5 presses for the disarm function. You must
check with the installer to verify the programming for
your individual unit.
➜ silent mode
To temporarily turn off the arm or disarm chirps, use Silent
Mode™. Simply press
for less than one second before
arming or disarming, and the confirmation chirp(s) will be eliminated for that one operation only. If you want the arm/disarm
chirps turned off permanently, your dealer can do this for you.
note: The Warn Away® response to lighter impacts is
bypassed if the system is armed using Silent Mode. This
ensures that no chirps will be emitted by the siren in an
area you want chirp-free. The system is still fully capable
of triggering. Only the Warn Away® response is
bypassed.
16
© 2005 directed electronics—all rights reser ved
➜ 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 two seconds, and you will enter Panic Mode. The
siren will sound and the parking lights will flash for the
programmed siren duration. To stop Panic Mode at any time,
press
on the remote transmitter again.
➜ valet mode
You can prevent your security system from automatically arming
and triggering by using Valet Mode. This is very useful when
washing the vehicle or having it serviced. In Valet Mode, the
security system will not arm, even with the remote transmitter,
but all convenience functions (door locks, trunk release, etc.) will
continue to work normally.
To enter or exit Valet Mode:
1. Turn the ignition on.
2. Turn the ignition off.
3. Press and release the Valet
DRW-35
button within 10 seconds.
The status LED will light solidly if you are entering Valet Mode,
and it will go out if you are exiting Valet Mode.
To enter or exit Valet Mode using the transmitter:
1. Open any vehicle door.
2. Press

again.
The status LED will light solidly if you are entering Valet Mode,
and it will go out if you are exiting Valet Mode.
➜ remote start
This feature allows you to remotely start and run your vehicle for
a programmable period of time. This makes it possible to warm
up the engine, as well as adjust the interior temperature of the vehicle with the climate control system. If interior heating or
cooling is desired, the climate controls must be preset, and the

safety features
This system has several important safety features to ensure proper
operation of the motor and prevent accidental damage to the
engine or its components.
© 2005 directed electronics—all rights reser ved
23
➜ starter anti-grind circuitry
Whenever the vehicle is remote started, advanced anti-grind
circuitry prevents the starter from engaging, even if the key is
turned to the start position. This prevents damage to the starter
motor if the key is turned to the start position during remote start
operation.
➜ disabling the remote start system
This feature allows your system's remote start unit to be
temporarily disabled to prevent the vehicle from being remote
started accidentally. This feature is useful if the vehicle is being
serviced or stored in an enclosed area. To disable the remote start,
move the shutdown toggle switch to the OFF position. The
switch can be installed in a location of your choice. Check with
your installer for recommended locations.
Location of Shutdown Switch____________________________
➜ over and under rev protection
The system monitors the engine speed and will automatically
shut the engine off if the RPMs rise above or fall below the
programmed levels. This feature prevents damage to the motor
due to fuel delivery system failures or other problems which may
cause the engine to race.
note: The system uses a wire connected to the vehicle to
sense engine speed. This wire must be connected in order
for over and under rev protection to work.
24
© 2005 directed electronics—all rights reser ved
➜ shut down inputs
This security system uses several inputs to shut down the remote
start operation of the motor or prevent remote start if certain
inputs are active. The two most important are hood and brake
inputs. The hood input will prevent the motor from starting, as
well as shut it down, any time the hood is opened. The brake
pedal will shut down the motor at any time during remote start
operation, as well as preventing the remote start from activating
while it is being pressed.
➜ nuisance prevention® circuitry
Your system has Directed’s Nuisance Prevention® Circuitry
(NPC). It prevents annoying repetitive trigger sequences due to
faulty door pin switches or environmental conditions such as
thunder, jackhammers, airport noise, etc.
Example
If the alarm triggers three times within a 60-minute period and
each time the same sensor or switch triggers the alarm, NPC will
interpret those 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 tries to trigger the security system while it
is being bypassed, the 60-minute bypass period will start over.
This ensures that a sensor that is continually being triggered will
remain bypassed.
© 2005 directed electronics—all rights reser ved
25
The vehicle doors are protected by NPC differently. If your security system is triggered by an open door for three full cycles, the
system will bypass the doors until the trigger ceases.
note: Arming and disarming the system does not reset
this function! The only ways to reset a bypassed zone are
for it to not trigger for 60 minutes, or to turn on the ignition. If testing your system, it is important to remember
that the NPC programming can cause zones to be
bypassed and appear to stop working. If five chirps are
heard when disarming, NPC has been engaged. If you
wish to clear the NPC memory, turn the ignition on.
diagnostics
The microprocessor at the heart of your system is constantly
monitoring all of the switches and sensors connected to it. It is
designed to detect any faulty switches and sensors and prevents
them from disabling the entire system. The microprocessor will
also record and report any triggers that occurred during your
absence. Refer to the System Status Chirps and Table of Zones
sections of this guide for diagnostic information.
➜ arming diagnostics
If the security system is armed at the same time that an input is
active (such as a door opening or sensor triggering), you will hear
one siren chirp to indicate arming and a second siren chirp to
indicate Bypass Notification. A Bypass Notification chirp means
that the security system ignores the input that was active when
26
© 2005 directed electronics—all rights reser ved
the system was armed, until that input ceases. Three seconds
after that input ceases, the security system will resume normal
monitoring. For example, if your vehicle has an interior light exit
delay and you arm your security system before the interior light
turns off, you may hear a second Bypass Notification chirp.
Once the light turns off, however, the security system resumes
normal monitoring.
note: Bypass Notification does not occur when the system is in Silent Mode or if the notification chirps have
been programmed off by the installer.
➜ disarming diagnostics
Extra chirps that are heard when disarming the system are the
Tamper Alert. If four chirps are heard when disarming the
system, then the security system was triggered in your absence. If
five chirps are heard when disarming the system, a zone was triggered so many times that the Nuisance Protection® Circuitry has
bypassed that zone. In either case, the status LED will indicate
which zone was involved (see Table of Zones section). The security system will retain this information in its memory and chirp
four or five times each time it is disarmed, until the next time
that the ignition is turned on.
➜ system status chirps
The siren will chirp when arming/disarming the system. The
pattern of chirps will audibly report the system’s status as
described below.

➜ interpreting zone diagnostics
Warn Away responses are not reported by arming or disarming
diagnostics. If you receive a Bypass notification when arming or
a Tamper Alert notification when disarming, look at the LED.
Active or triggered zones will be indicated by a pattern of blinks
by the LED.
Example
If zone 3 was active or triggered, the LED will blink three times
with a two-second pause. Then it will blink three times again,
and repeat until the ignition is turned on.
note: Your system stores the last two triggered zones in
memory. If your system has been triggered but the LED
has been reset by turning on the ignition, your dealer can
still recall the last two zones that were triggered. Contact
your dealer for details.
code hopping
The receiver and transmitters 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 “in sync” with the control
unit even if you use the remote control out of range of the
vehicle. However, if the remote has been pressed many times out
of range of the vehicle, or the battery has been removed, it may fall
© 2005 directed electronics—all rights reser ved
29
out of sync with the control unit and fail to operate the system.
To re-sync the remote simply press
several times within
range of the vehicle. The alarm will automatically re-sync and
respond to the transmitters 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.
owner recognition
Owner Recognition is a revolutionary new feature available only
from Directed. Using a Directed Bitwriter®, hand-held programming tool, your dealer can program many of the system settings.
The programmer makes it possible to program different settings
for each transmitter that is used with the system. Then, whenever a specific transmitter is used, the system will recall the settings
assigned to that transmitter. Owner Recognition lets up to four
users of the system have different settings that meet their specific
needs. It is almost like having four separate alarms in your
vehicle, one for each user.
30
© 2005 directed electronics—all rights reser ved
note: Owner Recognition cannot be programmed without a Bitwriter® and the necessary software. Check with
your dealer for more information.
rapid resume logic
This Directed system will store its current state to non-volatile
memory. If power is lost and then reconnected the system will
recall the stored state from memory. This means if the unit is in
Valet Mode and the battery is disconnected for any reason, such
as servicing the car, when the battery is reconnected the unit will
still be in Valet Mode. This applies to all states of the system
including arm, disarm, and Valet Mode.
power saver mode
Your system will automatically enter Power Saver Mode while
armed or in Valet Mode, after a period of time in which no operation has been performed. This lowers the current draw on the
vehicle's battery. Power Saver Mode takes over under the
following conditions:
➤
Power Saver when the system is armed: After the system has
been armed for 24 hours the LED will flash at half its
normal rate, decreasing the system's current draw.
➤
Power Saver in Valet Mode: When the system enters Valet
© 2005 directed electronics—all rights reser ved
31
Mode the LED illuminates steadily. If the vehicle is not used
(ignition is not turned on) for a one hour period while the
system is in Valet Mode, the LED will shut off. If the system
remains in Valet Mode, the LED will come back on the next
time the ignition is turned on and then back off.
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.
The following is a list of the programmable options, with the
factory settings in Bold.
➤
Active arming (transmitter only) or passive arming (automatic arming 30 seconds after the last door has been closed).
➤
Arming/disarming siren chirps on or off.
➤
The ignition controlled door lock feature on or off: When
this feature is programmed on, the doors will lock three
seconds after the ignition is turned on, and unlock when the
ignition is turned off. If your installer is programming the
security system with the Directed Bitwriter®, ignition lock
and unlock are independent features that can be
programmed separately.
➤
Passive door locking (with passive arming) or active door
locking (only when arming with the transmitter). Passive
locking allows the vehicle's doors to lock when the security
32
© 2005 directed electronics—all rights reser ved
system passively arms (after the 30-second countdown). This
feature only works if passive arming has been programmed.
➤
Panic mode enabled/disabled when the ignition is turned
on. (Some states have laws against sirens sounding in moving
cars.)
➤
Forced passive arming on or off. If your security system is
programmed for passive arming and the forced passive
arming feature has been programmed on, the system will
passively arm after one hour, even if a protected entry has
been left open. Forced passive arming ensures that the
system will be armed if a door has accidentally been left ajar
when leaving the vehicle.
note: When the system passively arms after one hour, the
entry point that has been left open, and anything connected to the same zone, is bypassed and cannot trigger
the system. However, the remaining inputs to the system
are fully operational.
➤
Full trigger response 30 or 60 seconds: This determines how
long the full triggered sequence lasts. Some states have laws
regulating how long a security system can sound before it is
considered a nuisance. If your installer is programming the
security system with the Directed Bitwriter®, the full triggered response can be programmed for any duration ranging
from 1 to 180 seconds.
➤
Automatic Engine Disable (AED) on or off. The purpose of
this feature is to protect the vehicle from being stolen at all
times, regardless of whether or not the alarm is armed. If
© 2005 directed electronics—all rights reser ved
33
AED is programmed on, the starter of the vehicle will be
disabled 30 seconds after the ignition is turned off. Once the
key is turned off, the LED will flash slowly (one-half its
normal armed rate) to indicate the AED arming cycle.
Thirty seconds later, the starter will be disabled. To start the
car, it will be necessary to disarm the system with the transmitter. It is also possible to disarm the AED feature by
turning the ignition key to the RUN position and pressing
the Valet button the programmed number of times. AED is
also disabled when the system is in Valet mode.
note: This feature will only function if the FailSafe®
Starter Kill relay has been installed.
➤
Siren tones and chirp volume. The output of the Revenger™
Soft Chirp™ siren consists of six different tones in sequence.
Any of these tones can be eliminated by a dealer, resulting in a
unique, easily identifiable siren sound. The chirps can be either
full volume or 6 decibels quieter than the full alarm blast.
➤
12, 24, or 60 minute run time. your system can be
programmed to allow the vehicle to run for 12, 24, or 60
minutes when remote started. Can be set up to minute
increments by your installer.
➤
3, 6, 9, or 12 minute timer mode run time. Your system can
be programmed to allow the vehicle to run for 3, 6, 9, or 12
minutes when remote started in timer mode. Can be set up
to 16 minutes by your installer.

While the remote start system is running the engine, the
parking lights of the vehicle can flash on and off or come on
and light steadily.

Comfort closure is a programming option which closes the
vehicle’s windows after remote locking.
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 analyzes 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 starter interrupt active if main battery is disconnected.
Hood Lock: Prevents the vehicle’s hood from being opened
without a key, keeping thieves away from the system’s siren, the
battery connections, and other components under the hood.
Field Disturbance Sensor: An invisible dome of coverage is estab-
lished by installing the 508D “radar” sensor. Your system can
react to any intrusions into this field with the full 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 accessory output of the system can op-
erate a factory power release for the vehicle’s trunk or hatch.
Although the on-board relay can control most power trunk releases, sometimes an optional relay is required. If the factory
release is not power-activated, Directed®'s 522T trunk release
solenoid can often be added.
Power Window Control: Automatic power window control is pro-
vided with the 529T and 530T systems. These can operate
power windows, and can roll them up automatically when the
system is armed, roll them down, or both up and down.
Mobile Video: This system is compatible with Directed Video’s
MCB1000 Multi-Channel Controller, featuring on-screen security system programming and zone trigger information.

glossary of terms
Control Unit: The “brain” of your system. Usually hidden under-
neath the dash area of the vehicle. The control unit houses the
microprocessor which monitors your vehicle and controls all
system functions.
Fault-Proof Starter Interrupt: An automatic switch controlled by
your system that 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 if
the starter interrupt switch itself fails. Your system has featureready circuitry for the starter interrupt, however installation may
require additional labor.
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.
LED: A red light mounted at a discretionary location inside the
vehicle. It is used to indicate the status of your system.
Shock Sensor: This system has a dual zone shock sensor. This
sensor is mounted in the vehicle and designed to pick up impacts
to the vehicle or glass.
Transmitter: A hand-held, remote control which operates the
various functions of your system.
© 2005 directed electronics—all rights reser ved
37
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 parking lights flashing
for the programmed duration.
Valet button: A small push button mounted at a discretionary
location inside the vehicle. It is used to override the starter interrupt when a transmitter is lost or damaged, or to enter or exit
Valet Mode.
Warning Zone Response: Lighter impacts to the vehicle will
generate the Warning Zone response. It consists of several
seconds of siren chirps and parking light flashes.
Zone: A zone is a separate input that the alarm can recognize as
unique. Each input to the system is connected to a particular
zone. Often two or more inputs may share the same zone.
