CM6200
If you are new to installing Firstech Series Remote Starts and / or Alarms, we highly recommended that you
thoroughly review this manual to installing your first unit.
Key Points to Consider Before Installation:
You must code remotes to this system before anything will function. Program remotes by cycling the ignition
ON / OFF five times within 7 seconds and tap button 1 (0.5 second) on the first remote, and then tap button 1
(0.5 second) on the second remote.
Secure Valet:
This optional switch breaks the internal ignition connection to prevent the system from being put into valet
when cycling the ignition ON / OFF five times.
Internal green loop must be cut for AUTOMATIC transmission vehicles.
By default, the units come in MANUAL transmission mode. You will need to cut the green loop inside the control module if you are installing the unit in a AUTOMATIC transmission.
Tach learning procedure:
Learn tach by: (1.) Starting the vehicle with the key, (2.) Press and hold the foot brake, then (3.) Hold the remote start button on the remote for 2.5 seconds - one chirp and parking light flash indicates that the vehicle tach
signal has been successfully learned. Two chirps and two parking light flashes indicate that the control module
failed to see a proper tachometer signal. (These units have the option for Tachless and 1.5 second assume cranking).
New Option Menus:
It is important to familiarize yourself with all the options as it will save time in most applications. For instance,
Option 1-04 controls the double pulse unlock feature on all CM6 series control modules.
Programmable Output Connectors (POC)
Must have Option Programmer OP500
All control modules come with 9 programmable outputs that can be configured 19 different ways. It is important
to familiarize yourself with the POCs as it will save time in most applications.
Internet updatable processors
Visit www.firstechonline.com
All CM6 series units are equipped with some of the most powerful processors available today. This flexibility
allows for on-demand internet updating capabilities in the event of a version update or change.

Remote Programming Routine
www.firstechonline.com | www.compustar.com
CM6200
IMPORTANT: Any and all remotes must be coded to the control module prior to performing any and all operations.
Remotes excluding 2WSSR-Pro
STEP 1: Activate programming mode by manually turning the vehicle’s key between the Ign On and Off (or the
Acc & On positions) five times within 7 seconds. The vehicle’s parking lights will flash once with the successful
completion of this step. (Note: this step also places the control module into Valet Mode)
STEP 2: Within a 2 second period after the 5th ignition cycle tap Button I on two way remotes or the Lock button on one-way remotes for 0.5 seconds. The parking lights will flash once to confirm the transmitter has been
coded. Repeat for additional remotes, up to three.
Exiting Programming: Programming is a timed sequence. After 2 seconds the
parking lights will flash twice signaling the end of programming mode.
Programming Multiple Remotes: After the confirmation flash given in STEP
2, code additional remotes by tapping Button I on two way remotes or the
Lock button on one way remotes. The parking lights will flash once confirming each additional remote. All systems (except the PWSSR-Pro), can
recognize up to three remotes.
Note: If you do not program any remotes and enter this sequence it will put
the system into Valet Mode. Only the keyless entry will work in Valet Mode.
To exit Valet Mode just program remote(s).
2WSSR-Pro
STEP 1: Remove the AA battery from the remote.
STEP 2: Activate programming mode by manually turning the vehicle’s key between the Ign On and Off (or the
Acc & On positions) five times within 7 seconds. The vehicle’s parking lights will flash once with the successful
completion of this step. (Note: this step also places the control module into Valet Mode)
STEP 3: Within a 2 second period after the 5th ignition cycle, insert the AA battery into the remote. The parking lights will flash once to confirm this step. If you have an additional 1 Way remote tap the Lock button after
inserting the AA battery into the 2 Way remote.
STEP 4: Wait several seconds for the parking lights to flash twice and the remote LCD to receive a page back.
The transmitter has now been coded.
Programming Multiple Remotes: After the confirmation flash in step 3, program the optional 1 Way remote
by tapping the Lock button for 0.5 seconds. The parking lights will flash once confirming that the 1 Way this
remote has been learned. The 2WSSR-Pro can recognize (1) 2 Way remote and (1) 1 Way remote.

Placement and Use of Components
www.firstechonline.com | www.compustar.com
CM6200
IMPORTANT: The placement and use of components are critical to the performance of this system.
Antenna and Cable
Firstech antennas are calibrated for horizontal installation at the top of the windshield. The cable that connects
the antenna to the control module must be free from any pinches or kinks. Installing the antenna in areas other
than the windshield may adversely affect the effective transmitting distance of the remotes.
Secure Valet Switch
The optional Secure Valet Switch prevents the alarm from being put into valet mode through cycling the ignition on/off five times. The Secure Valet Switch is more secure than traditional toggle / valet switches because it
requires a two digit code. To program this feature you must perform the following procedures:
STEP 1: Turn on Option 3-10-III.
STEP 2: Turn ignition key to the “on” position.
STEP 3: Hold down the valet switch for 1.5 seconds. The LED on the valet switch will begin to flash rapidly with successful completion of this step.
STEP 4: Enter the first digit of the desired two-digit pass code by depressing the switch the number of times that coordinates with the
desired first number. For example, to enter 3, depress the switch 3 times, then wait.
STEP 5: The LED will confirm the first number by flashing BLUE slowly. Once the LED begins to flash rapidly, enter your second
number by repeating step 4.
STEP 6: Turn the ignition off - the Secure Valet Switch is now programmed. Follow steps 3 – 5 to enter your Secure Valet code.
**The first two digits of the RPS unlock/disarm pass code will be the default pass code for the Secure Valet
(you do not need to program them independently).
Thermister (Temperature Sensor)
Every 2 Way LCD Firstech RF kit includes an optional thermister, which must be plugged into the 2 pin port of
the control module for use. This plug is blue on the CM6000. The use of the thermister allows the 2 Way remote
to display the vehicle’s interior temperature on the remote LCD (liquid crystal display) as well as permitting the
vehicle to start with timed Hot or Cold starting; see options 2-05, 2-07 and 2-08. IMPORTANT: New thermister
plugs are blue 2 pin connectors on the CM6 series but old white plug thermistors will still work.
Hood Pin
The hood pin switch triggers the alarm in the event the hood is opened while the alarm is armed. The hood pin
also doubles as an important safety feature that prevents the remote start from engaging while the hood is open.

Common Procedures
www.firstechonline.com | www.compustar.com
CM6200
Jumper Settings
Caution: Jumper settings affect the polarity and use of certain outputs. If these jumpers are used incorrectly,
damage to the vehicle and /or control module may occur.
Jumper 1 (Door Trigger Polarity)
Determines the polarity of the door trigger input wire (red/white). In the default position the door trigger registers negative (-) triggers. To change to a positive (+) trigger, move the jumper.
Jumper 2 (Glow Plug or Key Sense Polarity)
Determines the polarity of the glow plug or key sense input wire (brown/white). In the default position it monitors a positive (+) glow plug input. To change to a negative (-) input move the jumper. To change from the glow
plug to the key sense setting, you must change Option 4-09.
Jumper 3 (Parking Light to Trunk Output)
Determines the output type (not polarity) of the green/white wire on connector one (CN1). In the default position it provides a positive (+) parking light output. To change to a positive (+) trunk output move the jumper. A
negative (-) parking light output is found on connector three (CN3) and a negative (-) trunk output is found on
connector four (CN4).
Setting Auxiliary Outputs on Connector 2 - You Must Have the OP500 Option Programmer
To set auxiliary outputs on the control module you must change Programmable Output Connector wires (POCs).
You must choose two odd pin wires on the black 18 pin connector that you are not using. For example we will
use POC 8 and 9.
STEP 1: Plug in OP500 and use the Right or Left Arrow Button to scroll through the menu to POC 8 and POC 9 on LCD Line 1.
STEP 2: Use the Up or Down Arrow Button to change the lower number on LCD Line 2 to 10 – Auxiliary 1 or 11- Auxiliary 2.
STEP 3: Scroll up the menu to Option 4-01 and 4-02 and set the options. Please see the Option Table for details.
STEP 4: The Pro control modules have a secure auxiliary option 4-05. This requires you to tap button 4 before you tap button 2 for
Aux 1 or button 3 for Aux 2. On 1-Way remotes you must hold the Trunk and Key/Start buttons for 2.5 seconds then tap the Trunk
button for Aux 1 or the Key/Start button for Aux 2.
STEP 5: If you need to change the time settings of the outputs go to AU1 or AU2 on the OP500. LCD Line 2 is the timed output.
STEP 6: Hold the “W” Write button for 3 seconds to set all the options.
Tach Sensing
The default engine sensing mode is tach. In cold weather climates we recommend using an injector wire verses
a coil wire for tachometer sense. There are new features that adjust tach reading methods on option 2-01. IMPORTANT: The remotes must be coded prior to setting up tach sensing. Firstech recommends using a digital
multimeter to test for tach.

STEP 1: Start the vehicle with the key. Allow time for the engine to idle down.
STEP 2: Test wire and make connection. At idle the tach wire should test between 1 to 4 Volts AC. As the vehicle RPM’s increase the voltage on the meter will also increase. Always solder tach connections.
STEP 3: Learn tach. While the vehicle is at idle, hold the foot brake and press and hold the remote start button
on the remote control for 2.5 seconds.

Alternator Sensing
Alternator sensing is an alternative method the remote start can utilize to determine if the engine is running.
This is different than the no tach sensing mode so a connection must be made. IMPORTANT: The remotes must
be coded prior to setting up alternator sensing.
STEP 1: Change Option 2-10 to setting 2 - Alternator sensing.
STEP 2: Test wire and make connection. The stator wire is found at the vehicle’s alternator. Change your multimeter to DC voltage before testing for this wire.
A. At rest, with the ignition off, the stator wire should test 0V DC.
B. Turn the ignition to the run position. The stator wire should now test between 4 – 6V DC.
C. Start the vehicle with the key. The stator wire should now test between 12 – 14V DC at idle.
STEP 3: Process complete – no further programming is required.
No Tach Sensing – (Automatic Transmission Vehicles Only)
No tach sensing is an alternative engine sensing mode. No tach sensing does not require a connection to the
vehicle other than the main ignition harness.
STEP 1: Change Option 2-10 to setting 3 – No tach sensing.
STEP 2: Process complete – there is no further programming required other than adjusting crank time when
necessary (see below).
Adjusting Crank Time: To adjust minimum crank times, refer to Option 2-12. To help ensure successful starting,
the system will automatically add additional crank time to the 2nd and 3rd start attempts. In addition, there is a
built in “Smart Resting Mode”. Traditional tach sensing is still highly recommended for colder climates.

Timed Crank Setting – Automatic Transmission Only
Option 2-10 setting 4 provides a timed 1.5 second crank for the remote start sequence. This option just cranks
the vehicle for 1.5 seconds and assumes remote start has completed. This option can be used for GM and other
vehicles with built in anti-grind systems.
Green/White Loop
This loop wire determines the transmission setting. The default position (uncut loop) is for manual transmissions. When the loop is cut, the system will be ready for automatic transmissions. In the default (manual transmission) mode, the system must be set up in Reservation mode prior to the vehicle being able to remote start.
IMPORTANT: All warranties or claims are void if a controller with a cut loop is installed on a vehicle with a
manual transmission.
Reservation Mode for Manual Transmissions
To remote start a manual transmission vehicle, the system must first be set up in reservation mode. Reservation
mode is designed to prevent the vehicle from remote starting while the transmission is in gear.
Installation Requirements
1. The vehicle’s door triggers must be connected to the control module. Prior to making final connections, test
the factory door triggers to ensure that they are functioning properly.
2. The vehicle’s emergency/parking brake wire must be connected to the control module. The proper vehicle
wire usually provides a negative (-) trigger while the emergency / parking brake is set.
3. The vehicle’s clutch must be momentarily bypassed while the remote start cranks the engine. This momentary bypass simulates the clutch being depressed. For complete details on how to wire a momentary clutch
bypass consult your CompuTech program or contact our technical support department by calling 888-820-3690.
IMPORTANT: Do not install a remote start in manual transmission vehicles with convertible / removable tops
and in user’s vehicles that leave their windows down. Firstech nor their authorized dealers will assume responsibility for improper use or install.
Activating Reservation Mode
STEP 1: Start the vehicle with the key. Place the transmission in neutral, remove pressure from the pedal
brake, and set the emergency/parking brake.
STEP 2: Remove the key from the vehicle’s ignition. The vehicles engine should remain running even after the
key has been removed. If the vehicle does not remain running, check the emergency / parking brake connection.
STEP 3: Exit the vehicle and close the door. The vehicle’s engine should shut off upon closing the door. If the
vehicle’s engine does not shut off, check the door trigger connection or wait for the factory dome-light to go
out. The Firstech system is in reservation mode and the vehicle is ready to safely remote start.

Additional Notes
Reservation mode will be cancelled if the control module recognizes the vehicles door, hood or trunk opening –
or if the alarm is triggered. Each time the end user wants to remote start their manual transmission vehicle, they
must set the control module in reservation mode. Reservation mode settings can be programmed with Option
1-06.
Version Diagnostics
All the new control modules come with the ability to check which firmware is on the module. This is accomplished by turning the ignition on. Then with 2 Way remotes you must hold buttons 1 and 4 together for 2.5 seconds. With the 1 Way remotes you must hold the Lock and Key/Start buttons together for 2.5 seconds. Current
version starts with 1 flash.
Blade Cartridge Slot and Connector
The CM6000 and CM6200. The slot gives you the ability to use the Blade-AL and Blade-TB modules from
Firstech and ADS. With these modules you can virtually eliminate all wire connections between your control
module and bypass module. You only need to connect the main ignition harness and your needed wires on
the 20 pin Blade connector. For more information on how to program and wire the Blade please visit www.
idatalink.com for the specific wiring diagram for that vehicle.
The new CM6 Series the Blade connector has a locking tab. Non-locking tab blade harnesses will work
but you MUST TAKE CARE TO NOT PLUG THE HARNESS IN UPSIDE DOWN. Make sure the two
notches on the top of the harness face the top (CM and barcode sticker side) of the brain. When looking at the
wire side of the harness the two notches must be at the top of the plug.
Blade system includes:
1. Blade-AL or Blade-TB (NOTE: These modules are blank and must be flashed on your computer.)
2. 20 Pin locking wiring harness
3. 3 Pin harness used in some installs
IMPORTANT: Install diagrams are not included and must be downloaded from www.idatalink.com/compustar. When flashing the Blade you can use the Y-Cable OP500 end and not CM4 Series end. ADS and Firstech
recommends using the 4 pin RS232 cable to avoid confusion. Cartridge must be removed to flash the control
module firmware.
NOTE: The ADS-RNG C1, ADS-RNG C2, and ADS-RNG GM3 are not included and must be purchased separately. The 20 pin Blade connector comes only with the Blade cartridge and not the CM6 control modules.
WARNING: Manufacturer or seller assumes no responsibility for any injuries and/or damages caused by
improper care of the product such as decomposition, conversion, and transform done by a user voluntarily.
WARNING: There should be no wiring routed around any pedals which can cause a driving hazard.

4-13 Antenna Power Save - Some people may not drive their vehicle very often, this may cause the battery to become discharged because it is not getting recharged on a regular basis. The antenna power save option will turn off the antenna after the specified amount of time to conserve power. While the antenna is asleep, the system will not respond to the remotes. Any type of input to the system will wake up the antenna, i.e.: ignition, brake, door, trunk, hood, shock, rps, ect. This means that a remote start only user just needs to open their door to reactivate the system, however, a user with an alarm or alarm/start system will need to trigger the prewar stage of the shock sensor to quietly wake up the antenna.
4-14
Low Battery Warning - This feature option which is default to off. When the system is armed and the feature is on the main control unit will monitor the voltage of the vehicles battery at its connection point. When the battery voltage drops to or below 11 volts the control module will send a page to the 2way. It will beep several times for 5 seconds, every 50 seconds, 3 times and flash the battery indicator on the remote. When you query the remote or unlock/disarm the system the remote will display the voltage of the vehicle’s battery.

IMPORTANT: The OP500 is required to change settings in Special Option Groups 1 and 2.
Special Option Group 1
1
Diesel Timer – Option 2-03 must first be set to setting 2. This special option allows a specific wait to start time (in seconds) to be programmed. This prevents the need for a timer relay and eliminates a con
nection to the “wait to start” wire.
2
Aux 1 Output Timing – Option 4-01 must first be set to setting 4. This special option allows a specific output duration for Aux 1 to be programmed.
3
Aux 2 Output Timing – Option 4-02 must first be set to setting 4. This special option allows a specific output duration for Aux 2 to be programmed.
4-8
Aux 3 – 7 Output Timing – Option 3-11 must first be set to setting 2 and the optional Auxiliary settings module must be used. These special options allow specific output durations to be set for Aux 3 – 7. Only available with 2 Way LCD remotes.
Special Option Group 2
This special option group allows you to determine the output type of the POC wires. For example, if you want
to set POC #5 (default setting status out) to Aux 1, you will need change special option 5 to number 10. This
must be done with the OP500.

STEP 2: To change the option number you wish to program, use the left and right arrow keys on the OP500. It
will scroll through the options available in menu 1 and then move to menu 2, then 3 and 4. Use the up and down
arrow buttons on the OP500 to adjust the option settings; “1” is the default setting, and “2”, “3”, and “4” are the
optional settings.
At the end of menu 4, if diesel mode or auxiliary setting functions were enabled – or if any of the auxiliary outputs were set to “Program”, the duration of these settings can now be adjusted.
Following the auxiliary and diesel settings (if selected), the POC options will be displayed on the OP500. The
POCs can be set between 0 (default) and 19.
STEP 3: When finished with the adjustment of the various option settings, press and hold the “W” (write) button until the OP500 chirps, which is approximately 2.5 seconds. This will write the settings to the control module. Wait until the module displays “Success” before disconnecting it from the antenna cable.
To reset the options, hold the “R” (reset) button and the “W” (write) button for 2.5 seconds. Release then write
the reset, hold the “W” button until the OP500 chirps, which is approximately 2.5 seconds.

Frequently Asked Questions
CM6200
I have everything hooked up and the system will not respond.
A: The remotes need to be programmed. Review the “Common Procedure” section of this manual.
I am trying to program the control module with the OP500 Option Programmer and it flashes “ER 01” when I
plug it in to the antenna cable. What should I do?
A: Make sure that the system is not locked/armed. The last thing to check is the antenna cable or antenna extension cable – make sure this is not damaged. If you need to, try another cable. When the OP500 is working
properly, it will read “success good.”
What is the green loop wire inside the brain module?
A: This wire determines the transmission mode. With the loop intact, the system is set for manual transmissions.
With the loop cut, the system is set for automatic transmission.
Where do the blue and purple wires off the extra relay go on the CM6000/CM6200?
A: This is a positive output, negative trigger relay. Use the secondary ignition, starter, and accessory outputs
from CN3 to give a negative trigger to the purple wire. This will determine the12V positive (+) output of the
blue wire, which you can then connect to your secondary ignition, starter, or accessory wire.
I need a ground when armed wire, does the control module have one?
A: You can use the starter output on CN1 that goes to the starter kill relay. You must cut this wire and place a
diode in line so that when the ignition on the other side of the relay goes to ground, it won’t back feed to your
accessory. Install the stripe side of the diode facing the control module.
Does the CM6 series have tachless mode?
A: Yes. The CM6000 and CM6200 all are tachless. Review the “Common Procedures” section of this manual.
On the brain, how do I set the auxiliaries?
A: You must have an Option Programmer (OP500) to set the auxiliaries on the CM4000, CM4200-DX,
CM4300, CM5000, CM5200, CM6000, and CM6200. First choose two POC wires on CN3 that you are not
using. With the OP500 go into the Special Option Group 2 and set those POC’s to Aux 1 and Aux 2. Review the
“Special Option Group” programming section of this manual.
All my connections are made and remotes programmed, how do I program the tach?
A: Review the “Common Procedures” section of this manual.
The vehicle remote starts when disarmed, but not when armed.
A: The starter kill relay was installed backwards. Check to make sure the yellow/black wire is going to the ignition side of the wire, and that the yellow wire is going to the engine side.

The vehicle starts and shuts down 3 times in a row.
A: This usually means that the engine sensing mode is not working correctly. If you are using a coil, change to
an injector or try alternator mode.
The vehicle will lock and unlock, but will not remote start or flash the parking lights.
A: The system is in valet mode. Tap buttons (I) + (III) for 0.5 seconds while the key is in the on position.
Whenever I try to arm the vehicle, it chirps the siren 3 times and will not arm.
A: Check the hood and trunk trigger inputs.
When I turn the ignition on the parking lights flash 3 times and/or siren chirps 3 times. What is the problem?
A: When you program only 1 Way remotes to a 2 Way antenna and no 2 Way remotes the control module reminds you of this situation each time you turn the ignition on. It does not affect the operation of the system but
will continue to do so until you program both 2 and 1 Way remotes to the 2 Way antenna.
Do the door locks flip flop in polarity?
A: No. You can use the CompuPack (relay pack) for high current positive (+) locks, or the DM600 harness used
for low current 600mA positive (+) locks.
What are Firmware Version Diagnostics?
A: When you turn the Ignition on and hold buttons 1 and 4 or Lock and Key/Start for 2.5 seconds then the
parking lights will flash 1 time on the CM6 series showing V.1.
What is this cartridge slot on the rear of the CM6000 and CM6200?
A: This is the slot for the Blade cartridge system. This slot is for the Idatalink Blade remote start bypass
modules. For more information on the compatibility and install information please visit www.idatalink.com/
fitguide. Using this system eliminates many connections between your standard control module and bypass
module. IMPORTANT: If you are not using the Blade then you will not have or use the 20 pin connector next
to the lock harness.
How do I take the system out of Valet Mode with a 1 Button Remote?
A: Turn the ignition on, tap the button 5 times within 7 seconds and the system will exit Valet Mode.
Why are the ignition controlled doorlocks option not working?
A. Check option programming. Option 1-09 should be on either setting 2 or 3. The option has to also be turn on
via the remote. On 2 Way LCD remotes tap buttons I and IV for 0.5 second, the parking lights will flash once to
show the option is turned on. On 1 Way remotes tap the Lock and Start buttons for 0.5 second.
