Echo is configured for “MUTE” operation (vibrates instead chirping), then in
programming it will not play the musical melodies. Instead, it vibrates when
the remote starting Start Melody and Stop Melody are accessed for programming.
Other Omega Echo Notes:
• The system will only transmit a signal to the Echo transceiver if the Echo was
last used to operate the system (as in Arming or Disarming it). Example: if
the transmitter is used to Arm the system, the system will not transmit a signal
which will cause the Echo to chirp and change its icons.
• If multiple Echo transceivers are programmed to operate the system, the system will send its signal to only one transceiver- the last one used.
• When the Crime Guard 850i4e system does send a signal to the Echo transceiver, a few seconds is needed for this “handshake” to occur. If the
system is operated in a rapid fashion, as in quickly repeating Arm and Disarm
cycles, the Echo will not have time to receive the signal from the system, and
therefore it will stop responding and reporting the system’s status. Normally
operating the system corrects this symptom.
• A final point to remember is that the Echo transceiver cannot receive a signal
from the 850i4e system while it itself is transmitting. For normal operations,
the Echo’s buttons are pressed and released. Even when “Panic” is operated,
the Echo button should be released as soon as “Panic” engages. Otherwise,
the Echo cannot receive the signal from the system.
FEATURES PROGRAMMING CHECKLIST
This handy checklist simplifies the features programming process. Before
attempting feature programming, please refer to pages 27-43 for the full
programming procedure and a detailed description of each feature.
Step 1 - Turn the ignition “off”, and press the Valet Switch 5 times. The siren
will briefly sound to confirm programming mode.
Step 2 - Press the Valet Switch the same number of times as the desired feature
number. The system will chirp back the same number.
Step 3 - Press the transmitter’s "Arm/Lock" button to turn the feature “on” (1
chirp) or press the "Disarm/Unlock" button to turn the feature “off” (2
chirps).
Repeat - Steps 2 and 3 for each remaining feature to be changed

ABOUT YOUR NEW CRIME GUARD SYSTEM
Congratulations on your purchase of a new Crime Guard security and remote
starting system. Crime Guard systems combine the benefits of easy-to-use
convenience with “no nonsense” protection of property and person. Please
review this guide to become familiar with your Crime Guard vehicle security and
remote starting system. To operate your system, the four principal components
are first described: the Remote Transmitter and Remote Transceiver, the Status
Light, and the Valet Switch.
The Status Light: The multicolored Status Light, placed in a visible location
in the vehicle’s interior, reports the operational status of the system at all times,
and also serves as a visual deterrent to break-ins and theft. Specific description
of the Status Light operation may be found on pages 25-26.
The Valet Switch: The Valet Switch has three main functions:
✓ The Valet Switch can be used to turn off the security functions, including any
automatic arming or locking features (if used), and/or remote engine starting
functions of the system. The former is “Alarm Valet Mode”; the later is
“Starting Valet Mode” (pages 23-24).
✓ The Valet Switch can also be used, in conjunction with the vehicle’s ignition
key, to perform an emergency disarming of the security system in the event
the transmitter or transceiver is lost or becomes inoperable. This is referred
to as “performing an Emergency Override” (pages 13-14).
✓ The Valet Switch is used in the procedure of programming operational
features and also for encoding transmitters and transceivers to the system.
The 2-color Status Light and Valet Switch are
mounted in the system’s radio transceiver unit,
which is typically mounted to an interior glass,
such as the windshield. The Status Light is
most visible, and the Valet Switch is
Status
convenient to use (the SecureCode feature
Light
protects against unauthorized disarming).
If desired, Crime Guard’s flexible design will
allow for separately mounting an optional
Valet Switch or Status Light. The Valet
Valet
Switch is a critical part of your Crime Guard
Switch
system! See Page 13-14 and 23-24.

Remote Transceiver Icons: The LCD screen on the remote transceiver has
various icons which indicate system status. When the remote transceiver is used
to operate the system, it receives back a signal which causes it to chirp (emulating
the siren) and display the appropriate icons. Brief descriptions of the icons are:
• The digit readout is a clock, with AM and PM indication. This readout also
shows how many transmitters/transceivers can operate the system.
• The “DISARM” will also show “ARM”; this indicates the Armed or Disarmed
status of the system. Neither icon is present when the system is in Valet Mode.
• The locked or unlocked padlock (windshield) reflects the
true locked or unlocked status
of the doors (certain programmable features can automatically arm the system, but
not lock the doors). Arming
with the transmitter/transceiver always locks the doors;
• While the Echo programming must be “scrolled” through, programming mode
can be exited at any point within the menu by simply not pressing any buttons for 12 seconds. The Echo chirps once when it exits programming mode.
• If the “MUTE” vibrating operation is selected, turning off the chirps, the
remote starting melodies are also replaced by vibration.
• The previous also applies to the musical melodies when programming- if the

“VALET” indicates Alarm Valet Mode, replacing the “ARM” or “DISARM”
icons. A musical tone occurs when placing the system into Alarm Valet Mode.
When “BAT LOW” appears the transceiver’s 1.5 volt AAA battery should be
replaced with a new battery.
The transceiver’s chirps and musical tones may be turned off, which makes the
unit vibrate instead; “MUTE” indicates this state.
The “3” within a circle appears when the Auxiliary #3 is operated.
“HOOD/TRUNK” indicates that this zone the vehicle is or has been violated.
If associated with the system being activated, the transceiver also emits chirps,
until any button is pressed. In this case, the icon remains flashing until the
ignition switch is turned on.
If a remote starting attempt is made, and systems aborts it due to a violated
safety circuit, the “crossed-out key” on the hood area will appear (this is
accompanied by a musical tone).
The “CARJACK” icon within the vehicle’s front tag frame indicates that this
operation has been activated, which can be performed by any of three methods.
On the vehicle’s windshield is a “hammer” and “impact” icon. When the shock
sensor detects light impact, causing the system to prewarn, the “impact” icon
alone will momentarily appear, accompanied by three chirps. If the sensor
detects a harder impact or breaking glass, activating the system, the full
hammer and impact icons appear, and the transceiver chips until any button is
pressed, and the icon remains flashing until the ignition switch is turned on.
The “DOOR” icon will indicate that the system was activated via the door
detection circuit. The transceiver chirps until any button is pressed, and the
icon remains flashing until the ignition is turned on.
The “start” icon at the rear of the vehicle confirms remote starting. This icon
is accompanied by a musical melody, and stays on while remote starting is
operating; during which the puffs will change to appearing sequentially.
The “2” within a circle indicates use of the Auxiliary #2, which is most
commonly used for a remote trunk release feature.
The “transmitting tower” icon is an in-range indicator. It is present if the last
transmission from the transceiver was answered by a return signal from the
system. Should the transceiver be operated, and no return signal is received,
this icon will disappear.
The various lines at the upper rear of the vehicle graphic represent a unique
Omega feature which allows the user to customize the vehicle type represented
by the display. Options are: passenger car, pickup truck, and sport utility/van.

USING YOUR CRIME GUARD SYSTEM
Arming the Crime Guard system turns on the antitheft protection, disables the
vehicle’s starter and locks the doors (provided an interface is installed). Once the
system is Armed, any intrusion attempt will Activate it, sounding the siren and
flashing the lights to attract attention. Disarming the system turns off the
protection, allowing normal use of the vehicle.
There are three methods of Arming the security system:
1- The first method is to use the transmitter or transceiver, by pressing and
releasing its “Arm/Lock” button. The system must not be in Alarm Valet
Mode (page 23-24), and the vehicle’s ignition switch must be off. Every press
of the “Arm/Lock” button arms the system, even if it is already armed.
2- The second method is to press and release the transmitter or transceiver’s “II”
button twice within 5 seconds. This is “Silent Arming”.
3- The third method is Last Door Arming, which configures the system to
automatically arm every time you exit the vehicle. This method of arming is
programmable, and may be used or not used as desired.
program the feature, follow Steps 1 to 4 on page 28; at Step 4 the Valet Switch
will be pressed and released thirty one times. The system’s response will be thirty
one siren chirps, and the Status Light flashing thirty one times, pausing, then
repeating. Within 10 seconds, press and release the transmitter’s "Arm/Lock"
button to turn on the Turbo Timer feature (the siren will chirp once) or the
"Disarm/Unlock" button to turn it off (the siren will chirp twice).
PROGRAMMING TRANSMITTERS
OR ECHO TRANSCEIVERS
Your Crime Guard 850i4e system is capable of being operated by as many as
four controllers; these can be any combination of standard Crime Guard transmitters
or Omega Echo transceivers. Regardless of which, the transmitter or transceiver
must be encoded, or programmed, to the system in order to operate it (excepting
the originals, which were programmed at the factory). This programming
procedure is identical for a transmitter or Echo transceiver. To program
additional or replacement transmitters or transceivers, follow this procedure:
Have all of the transmitters or transceivers at hand (when one is programmed, all
others are erased).

Step 2 Within 5 seconds of turning "on" the ignition, press the Valet Switch 5
times. The siren will chirp once, confirming that the system is ready to
learn a transmitter.
Step 3 Within 10 seconds press and release the “Arm/Lock” button (the “locked
padlock” graphic). The siren will chirp once, confirming that the system
learned the transmitter.
Step 4 Repeat the previous step for each transmitter or transceiver which is to
operate the system.
• The siren will chirp twice (or four times if a zone is bypassed) unless the silent
arming procedure is followed.
• The parking lights will flash twice (or four times if a zone is bypassed).
• The doors will lock*.
Only the “Arm/Lock” button is pressed in programming; when it is learned all of
the other buttons’ functions are automatically assigned. The system will remove
itself from the programming mode if 10 seconds expire without its receiving a
signal, if the ignition is turned “off”, or upon four transmitters or transceivers
being programmed into the system.
Please note that programming a transmitter to the system will activate the
audible Unauthorized Transmitter Alert warning and the extended Status Light

required to use this feature. To program the feature, follow Steps 1 to 4 on page
28; at Step 4 the Valet Switch will be pressed and released twenty nine times. The
system’s response will be twenty nine siren chirps, and the Status Light flashing
twenty nine times, pausing, then repeating. Within 10 seconds, press and release
the transmitter’s "Arm/Lock" button to configure the system for Tachless
operation (the siren will chirp once) or the "Disarm/Unlock" button to configure
the system for Tach Wire operation (the siren will chirp twice).
Feature #30
Stick Shift Remote Starting
(Factory Default “Tachless”)
This feature changes the parameters of the 850i4e’s remote start operation to
be suitable for manual transmission-equipped vehicles via a “setup” procedure
which must be followed upon exiting the vehicle. When this feature is turned on,
the operator must set the parking brake and then press the transmitter’s “Arm/
Lock” and “Disarm/Unlock” buttons, which keeps the engine running after
removing the ignition key. After exiting, the user must then arm the 850i4e and
lock the vehicle doors by pressing the transmitter’s “Arm/Lock” button. Only
after this will the system accept a remote start command, and the vehicle must
remain undisturbed until that point. The complete instructions for remote
starting, including Stick Shift Remote Starting, is on pages 18 through 22.
Programming Stick Shift Remote Starting: The operation of this
feature depends on the correct connection of the safety wire to the vehicle’s
parking brake; please refer to the “Installation Manual” for proper connection of
this wire. To program the feature, follow Steps 1 to 4 on page 28; at Step 4 the
Valet Switch will be pressed and released thirty times. The system’s response will
be thirty siren chirps, and the Status Light flashing thirty times, pausing, then
repeating. Within 10 seconds, press and release the transmitter’s "Arm/Lock"
button to configure the system for Stick Shift Remote Starting operation (the siren
will chirp once) or the "Disarm/Unlock" button to turn this operation off (the siren
will chirp twice).
Feature #31
• The starter interrupt will engage.
• The Status Light will begin to flash slowly in Red.
Three seconds after arming, the security system becomes fully armed, and will
activate to an alarm condition should an intrusion attempt be detected.
Upon Arming with the Echo Transceiver, it will:
• The transceiver will chirp twice (or four times if a zone is bypassed).
• The “ARM” icon will appear.
• The “locked lock” icon appears, confirming that doors have locked.
• The number of operating transmitters or transceivers is briefly displayed.
Arming Bypass:
When arming the system using the transmitter or transceiver, if any protected zone or sensor circuit is in a violated condition, the affected zone or
circuit will be automatically bypassed. This is “Arming Bypass”, which allows
the system to still arm and protect the other normal, non-violated zones. In the
case of a bypassed zone or circuit, should the violated condition return to normal, 5 seconds after becoming normal the system restores protection to the previously bypassed zone or circuit.
If the hood and trunk zone, or sensor circuit is bypassed when the system is
armed, instead of the normal arming confirmation the siren will chirp four times
and the parking lights will flash four times to alert you. However, if a door
zone is bypassed, the siren and light confirmation will be the normal two chirps
and flashes, as many vehicles are equipped with a delayed interior light illumination. In these vehicles, the interior light delay would typically cause the system to indicate a bypass if the system is armed during the delay. In these cases,
the arming indication is normal, and the door zone is protected by the system
five seconds after the interior light turns off.
When the remote transceiver is used and Arming Bypass occurs, it will chirp
four times itself (instead of two) and flash the icon of the violated zone.
Turbo Timer
(Factory Default Setting OFF)
4
This feature, described on pages 21-22, when turned on configures the 850i e
to automatically keep the engine running for 2 minutes after it is turned off. This
operation is designed specifically for vehicles having turbocharged engines (the
user may temporarily bypass the feature if desired).
Programming Turbo Timer: The operation of this feature is dependent
upon the correct connection of the safety wire to the vehicle’s parking brake;
please refer to the “Installation Manual” for proper connection of this wire. To

LAST DOOR ARMING BY EXITING THE CAR
Last Door Arming:
Last Door Arming is a programmable feature which configures the system
to arm itself without the need of a command from the transmitter or transceiver.
This convenient feature offers a high level of security and may entitle the vehicle owner to an insurance discount since the user does not need to remember to
arm the system each time the vehicle is exited.
Page 7
The Last Door Arming feature may include, if desired, the automatic locking of
the vehicle’s doors when the system arms itself.*
button to configure the system for gasoline engines (the siren will chirp once)
or the "Disarm/Unlock" button to configure the system for diesel engines (the
siren will chirp twice).
The Last Door Arming process:
1- When the vehicle’s ignition has been turned off, the system waits until a door
is opened. When the door is closed, or when the last door is closed when
more than one door is opened, the siren will chirp twice, the parking lights
will flash twice, and the Status Light will begin flashing Red rapidly. The
Last Door Arming countdown has begun.
2- Thirty seconds later the siren will again chirp twice, the parking lights will
again flash twice, the starter interrupt will engage, and the Status Indicator
Light will begin flashing Red slowly. If programmed , the vehicle’s doors
will also lock.* Three seconds after these actions occur, the system is fully
armed.
Notes:
• If the remote transceiver was last used to operate the system, when Last Door
Arming is used to arm the system the transceiver will chirp twice and show the
“ARM” icon when system becomes fully armed 30 seconds after the last door
is closed. If the doors are programmed to also lock*, the “locked” icon will also
appear when this occurs.
• If a door is reopened during the thirty second period between the first and
second set of double chirps, the countdown will stop and reset. When the
reopened door is closed again, the 30 second countdown starts over again at
the beginning.
• Last Door Arming is separate from, and does not effect the operation of arming
by using the transmitter or transceiver.
• All protected points must be closed or otherwise in a non-violated state for the
Last Door Arming sequence to start. Unlike active arming from the transmitter or transceiver, the system can not bypass an open or detected zone and arm
itself.
To temporarily prevent the system from arming itself:
• Place the system into Alarm Valet Mode using the Valet Switch (pages 23-24).
• Leave a vehicle door open. Although this varies depending on the vehicle, in
most cases turning on the interior light will be detected by the system as an open
door.
• Although the system will not Last Door Arm while the ignition is on, leaving
the ignition key turned on without the engine running is not recommended.
* An optional doorlock interface must be installed

Feature #28
Extended Starter Cranking Time
(Factory Default Setting Minimum)
This feature operates in conjunction with the next feature’s “Tachless”
setting. The Crime Guard 850i4e’s processor is capable of detecting the running
engine by two separate methods- the use of the vehicle’s tachometer (“tach”) wire
for a direct engine RPM input, or by monitoring the fluctuating voltage levels
caused by the starting process. This feature sets the duration of the starter output’s
base timing for the voltage sensing type of starter output operation. There are four
different base starter output time durations.
Programming Extended Starter Output Time:
Follow Steps 1 to 4 on page 28; at Step 4 the Valet Switch will be pressed and
released twenty eight times. The system’s response will be twenty eight siren
chirps, and the Status Light flashing twenty eight times, pausing, then repeating.
Within 10 seconds, press and release the transmitter/transceiver’s button for one
of these Extended Starter Output Times settings:
"Arm/Lock" button
=
minimum (.7 second)
(one siren chirp)
"Disarm/Unlock" button =
low medium (1.25 seconds) (two siren chirps)
“II” button
=
high medium (1.75 seconds) (three siren chirps)
“III” button
=
maximum (2.5 seconds)
(four siren chirps)
The default-set minimum is sufficient for most vehicles; the Extended Starter
Cranking Time can be used for difficult-to-start engines.
Feature #29
“Tach Wire” or “Tachless” Starter Operation
(Factory Default “Tachless”)
This feature selects the system’s method of detecting the starting and running
of the engine during remote start operation. “Tachless” mode engages the starter
for a predetermined time (previous feature), during which it is monitoring voltage
changes in order to release the starter. While the Tachless method is adequate for
most vehicles, the “Tach Wire” connection is the most reliable form of engine
running information input, and its use is recommended. The Tach Wire option
has a set 3 second starter cranking time, during which it is directly monitoring the
engine’s RPM to release the starter when the engine runs. To use this feature, the
system’s tach input wire must be connected, and a tach learning process followed.
Programming the Tach Wire or Tachless feature:
Prior to programming this feature, please refer to the “Installation Manual”
for proper wiring connection and the Tach Learning Procedure, both of which are

chirps, and the Status Light flashing twenty five times, pausing, then repeating.
Within 10 seconds, press and release the transmitter/transceiver’s "Arm/Lock"
button to configure the double unlock pulse (the siren will chirp once) or the
"Disarm/Unlock" button to configure the single unlock pulse (the siren will chirp
twice).
Feature #26
Total Closure Lock Output
(Factory Default Setting OFF)
If the vehicle is has an existing total closure feature, this programmable
feature gives the installer the option of interfacing the system to operate this
feature. Typically, this option would close all windows and the sunroof, in
addition to locking the doors, when arming the system. Consult with the installer on this option, as the vehicle must be properly equipped to utilize this
system feature. Turning this feature on changes the door lock output pulse to a
28 second duration.
Note: When using this feature, upon Arming the system, should the “Disarm/
Unlock” button be pressed during the 28 second lock output period, the output
will stop only- the system will not Disarm. Pressing the button again will Disarm
the system, and at any time after the 28 second lock output period.
Programming Total Closure Lock Pulse:
Follow Steps 1 to 4 on page 28; at Step 4 the Valet Switch will be pressed and
released twenty six times. The system’s response will be twenty six siren chirps,
and the Status Light flashing twenty six times, pausing, then repeating. Within
10 seconds, press and release the transmitter/transceiver’s "Arm/Lock" button to
configure the 28 second door lock pulse for total closure (the siren will chirp
once) or the "Disarm/Unlock" button to configure the short door lock pulse (the

SYSTEM ARMED & ACTIVATED
While the system is in the Armed state:
• The Status Light will be flashing slowly Red to confirm that the system is
armed, and also serve as a visual deterrent.
• The starter interrupt circuit is engaged.
• All protected zones are being monitored for intrusion attempts.
Should an Activation into the Alarm Condition occur:
• The changing-tone electronic siren will loudly sound.
• The parking and interior lights will flash.
• The doors will lock,* regardless of their locked or unlocked status. This feature
is unique- if the system detects that a door is opened, it waits until the door is
closed before relocking it, denying the thief reentry.
An activated alarm condition has a duration of 30 seconds (60 is optional)
unless the system is disarmed using the transmitter, transceiver, or the Valet
Switch. If all protected zones are secure at the end of the alarm condition, the
system will stop and rearm automatically, ready to detect another entry attempt.
If a protected zone is still violated at the end of the alarm condition, the system
will reactivate for up to two additional alarm cycles. After the third alarm cycle
the system will automatically rearm and bypass the open zone until that zone
returns to a normal “non-violated” state.
• Once the system resets after it has been activated, upon disarming the audible
and visual confirmation will change to indicate the activation. This is the
“Activation Alert”, which is explained on pages 11-12.
The Echo Remote Transceiver’s reaction to the alarm condition:
If the remote transceiver was previously used to arm or operate the system, it
will react to an alarm activation, provided it is within range of the system. Upon
receiving a signal from the activated system, the transceiver will:
• The transceiver will start chirping, and continue chirping until any transceiver
button is pressed.
• An icon will start flashing, indicating which protected zone’s violation caused
the system’s alarm condition.
When silencing the transceiver’s alarm chirps, please note the differences of
pressing it’s buttons:
• Pressing “Arm/Lock” will rearm the system, stopping both system’s alarm
condition (leaving it armed) and the transceiver’s chirping.
* An optional doorlock interface must be installed
Page 9
• Pressing “Disarm/Unlock” will disarm the system, leaving the doors locked,
stopping both system’s alarm condition (leaving it disarmed) and the
transceiver’s chirping.
• Pressing and releasing any of the three other buttons will simply stop the
transceiver’s chirping, but leave the security system still sounding in its
alarm state.
The remote transceiver will display the flashing icon indicating the violated zone,
while the system is disarmed, until the ignition switch is turned on.
Disarming the system with every press of that same button. When this feature
is programmed for “1 Button Operation”, the system’s operation with the
included transmitter and/or Echo pager is:
“Locked Lock” button = Arm or Disarm (alternates)
“Unlocked Lock button = Auxiliary #2 output
“II” button = Auxiliary #3 output
“III” button = nothing (open for other receiver unit)
“Locked Lock” & “Unlocked Lock” buttons together = remote start
Programming Transmitter 1 or 2 Button Operation:
DISARMING THE SYSTEM
There are three methods of Disarming the security system:
1- The first method is to press and release the transmitter or transceiver’s
“Disarm/Unlock” button to disarm the system. This is the normal method.
2- The second method is to press and release the transmitter or transceiver’s “II”
button twice within 5 seconds. This is “silent Disarming”.
3- The third method is for emergencies, should the transmitter become lost or
inoperable. This is the “Emergency Override”, and uses the ignition key and
the Valet Switch.

Feature #24
Door Lock/Unlock Pulse Duration
(Factory Default Setting .8 Second)
This feature, for the installer’s use, offers the selection of a .8 second or a 3
second pulse duration of the system’s doorlock outputs. Certain vehicles have
power doorlocking systems which are vacuum operated, and thus require a
longer output pulse from the Crime Guard system. While use of this feature is
determined by the type of vehicle the system is installed in, this feature does save
the owners of such vehicles the added expense of a special adapter.
Programming Door Lock/Unlock Pulse Duration:
Follow Steps 1 to 4 on page 28; at Step 4 the Valet Switch will be pressed and
released twenty four times. The system’s response will be twenty four siren
chirps, and the Status Light flashing twenty four times, pausing, then repeating.

•
Programming the Chirp Confirmation:
When Disarming and Driver’s Door Priority unlocking is utilized, if the “Unlock/Disarm” neither the system nor the transceiver will repeat the Disarming
confirmation indicators. As the system does not transmit a signal to the transceiver, its “in range” icon will disappear, and then reappear again when the system is next Armed, or other remote function is used.
Programming this feature uses all four transmitter or transceiver operation
buttons. Follow Steps 1 to 4 on page 28; at Step 4 the Valet Switch will be pressed
and released twenty two times. The system’s response will be twenty two siren
chirps, and the Status Light flashing twenty two times, pausing, then repeating.
Within 10 seconds, press and release the transmitter/transceiver buttons according as follows, which the systems chirp response also indicated:
"Arm/Lock" button
=
lowest volume chirp
(one chirp)
"Disarm/Unlock" button =
medium low volume chirp
(two chirps)
“II” button
=
medium high volume chirp
(three chirps)
“III” button
=
highest volume chirp
(four chirps)
Bear in mind that while programming this feature, all buttons can be sequentially
pressed, and the setting with the best chirp confirmation be chosen.
Feature #23
1 Or 2 Button Arming / Disarming
The transceiver will chirp once (or three times if the system was activated).
The “DISARM” icon will appear.
The “unlocked lock” icon appears, confirming that doors have unlocked.
The number of operating transmitters or transceivers is briefly displayed.
Safety Disarm Feature:
Pressing and releasing the “Disarm/Unlock button while the system is
activated in the alarm condition will disarm the system, but the doors will remain locked. This is the “Safety Disarm” feature, which allows the vehicle to
remain secure, even though an activated system has been disarmed. Safety Disarm will also cancel Automatic Rearming (if it is programmed to operate). This
feature is also very useful when the vehicle is exposed to environmental conditions such as storms, trains or heavy vehicles, which may cause false activations.
Safety Disarm is a temporary “one time” operation which occurs only while
the system is activated. To remotely unlock the doors after a Safety Disarm,
simply press the “Disarm/Unlock” button again.
(Factory Default Setting 2 Button Operation)
This feature changes the configuration of how the transmitter or Echo
transceiver operates the system. In the factory default setting of “2 Button
Operation”, one of the transmitter/transceiver’s buttons will only Arm the system
(the “Arm/Lock” button), and a second button will only disarm the system (the
“Disarm/Unlock” button). When this feature is programmed to the “1 Button
Operation” setting, a single transmitter/transceiver button alternates Arming and
If the system experiences an alarm condition and resets itself, upon disarming

of the normal one chirp and one light flash. Additionally, the Status Light will
be flashing a “Zone Violation Code”. When the alarm condition activation
occurred, the Status Light changes from flashing slowly to flashing two to four
times between pausing to indicate which protected zone was violated.
• The Zone Violation Code will continue to be displayed until the vehicle’s
ignition is turned on.
• The Status Light will display the Zone Violation Code in place of fast
flashes indicating Automatic Rearming.
• Should the system be rearmed before the ignition clears the Zone Violation
Code memory, the Status Light shows the normal slow flashing.
• The system can store up to two consecutive Zone Violation Codes. If more
activations occurred, the two most recent codes are displayed.
Echo Transceiver Activation Alert:
If the Echo transceiver has been used to Disarm the system, it will show a
flashing icon for the zone which caused the system to activate into the alarm
condition. As long as the system is disarmed, the Echo will display this icon, until
the ignition is turned on. The Echo will store one Zone Violation Code.

Feature #20
Automatic Rearming:
Automatic Rearming is a programmable feature which ensures that your
system is never inadvertently disarmed. It is possible to accidentally or unknowingly
operate the transmitter from a pocket or purse. You may not even be aware of an
accidental disarming due to the enhanced operating distance offered by the
Extended Range Transmitter.
How It Works:
Whenever the system is disarmed by the transmitter, this feature starts a 90
second countdown, which is indicated by a rapidly flashing Red Status Light.
During this 90 second period, if no protected entry points are opened and the
vehicle’s ignition is NOT turned on, the system will automatically arm itself at the
end of the countdown. If desired, the system can also be programmed to
automatically relock the doors when this occurs.
Remote Start Preactivation
(Factory Default Off)
This feature requires that the user press the Valet Switch once before exiting
the vehicle in order for the remote starting operation to be available for later use.
With Preactivation is turned off, remote starting can be performed at any time,
and repeatedly if desired. If this feature is turned on, the system will not attempt
to start the engine unless the Valet Switch was pressed some time prior to the
starting attempt, as when leaving the vehicle.
Programming Preactivation:
Follow Steps 1 to 4 on page 28; at Step 4 the Valet Switch will be pressed and
released twenty times. The system’s response will be twenty siren chirps, and the
Status Light flashing twenty times, pausing, then repeating. Within 10 seconds,

matic Rearming period. For example, if a vehicle door is opened during the
90 second period, the countdown will stop. When the door is closed, the
system resets and starts a new 90 second countdown period.
• The Automatic Rearming sequence is indicated by a fast flashing Red Status
Indicator Light, unless the system has been activated, in which case a Zone
Violation Code will flash instead (pages 25-26). The ignition switch must
be turned on to erase a violation code.
• If the system is disarmed while it is activated (siren sounding and lights
flashing) Safety Disarm will cancel the Automatic Rearming for that disarming
operation only. The next time the system is armed, Automatic Rearming will
be initiated upon the subsequent disarming.
THE SYSTEM WILL DISARM
(Factory Default Setting 10 Minutes)
This Feature sets the period of time that the engine will run after being
remotely started. If the engine is not stopped by a transmitter or transceiver, or
a safety circuit violation, the engine will automatically stop upon the expiration

AUXILIARY OUTPUTS
The previous sections have described the basic everyday operations of your
Crime Guard system. The transmitter or Echo transceiver is also capable of
operating several other optional functions which are explained in this section.
Two auxiliary outputs are available for use (the primary output Arms and
Disarms the system). One output, the Auxiliary #2 output, is also capable of
Disarming the system; thus it is ideally suited for remote trunk release. Operating Auxiliary #2 will also unlock the doors and Disarm the system, should it be
armed. If desired, the unlocking of the doors and disarming of the system may
be programmed to not operate. The other output, Auxiliary #3 output cannot

GLASS BREAKAGE & 2-ZONE IMPACT SENSOR
Sensors: The Crime Guard 850i4e security system is equipped with a Glass
Breakage and Dual-Zone Infrasonic Impact Sensor to increase the effectiveness
of the system. The impact sensor is just one in a comprehensive line of available
sensors. Other available options are: piezo shock sensors, and microwave/radar
sensors which can detect objects in motion both inside and outside the vehicle.
• The Crime Guard 850i4e control module features dual auxiliary sensor ports,
which easily allows the addition of a further optional sensor.
• If desired, the sensor zone only can be bypassed when the system is armed
with the transmitter or Echo transceiver, but leaving the other protection zones
in place. This feature is convenient when environmental factors, such as hail
or thunder storms, may lead to the system being activated erroneously.
Prewarning Detection Circuit: When the sensor’s prewarn zone is
violated the security system will respond by chirping the siren three times and
relocking all of the doors.* If the prewarn circuit is triggered five times while the
system is armed, the circuit will automatically shutdown until the security system
is disarmed and armed again.
• Prewarning operates from the Infrasonic Impact Sensor only; the Glass
Breakage fully activates the system.
* An optional doorlock interface must be installed

Feature #4
Your Crime Guard 850i4e system offers the ultimate in comfort and
convenience- remote engine starting. This feature allows the vehicle’s interior
to be warmed in the winter or cooled in the summer before you enter the vehicle.
Simply leave the climate controls set to the desired settings when leaving the
vehicle prior to using the remote starting feature.
Last Door Arming
(Factory Default Setting Off)
This feature configures the system to automatically Arm itself 30 seconds
after the vehicle’s last door is closed.
Programming Last Door Arming:
The following pages explain the remote engine starting operations. If the
vehicle has a manual transmission, a special procedure is required when exiting
the vehicle to enable the ability to remote start. Otherwise, the activation of
remote start is the same for automatic or manual transmission vehicles.
Follow Steps 1 to 4 on page 28; at Step 4 the Valet Switch will be pressed and
released four times. The system’s response will be four siren chirps, and the
Status Light flashing four times, pausing, then repeating. Within 10 seconds,
press and release the transmitter/transceiver’s "Arm/Lock" button to turn on Last
Door Arming (the siren will chirp once) or the "Disarm/Unlock" button to turn
off Last Door Arming (the siren will chirp twice).
Page 18
Page 31
Once the system is disarmed, if Alarm Valet Mode is desired, without
pressing the brake pedal just press and hold the Valet Switch for 2 seconds to
place the system into Alarm Valet Mode (solid Red Status Light). Should a
mistake be made entering the SecureCode, after a failed attempt to achieve
SecureCode, the ignition switch must be turned off, then on again before another
attempt is made. Should two failed SecureCode attempts be made, the system will
ignore any further presses of the Valet Switch for two minutes.
In addition to Emergency Override, if any of the three anti-carjacking
features are utilized, a correct customized SecureCode would also be required to
turn off anti-carjacking once it has become fully activated.
How to custom program a new SecureCode:
Step 1 Follow Steps 1 to 4 in the previous “How to Program Features” instructions; at Step 4 the Valet Switch will be pressed and released once (the
siren chirps once) to access “feature #1”.
Step 2 Within 10 seconds slowly press and release the transmitter’s “Arm/Lock”
button the number of times (1 through 9 ) equal to the desired SecureCode
for stage 1, allow the system to respond to each transmitter button press
with a siren chirp before pressing the button again.
Step 3 After entering the first stage by pressing the transmitter “Arm/Lock”
button the desired number of times, and receiving a chirp for each press,
wait for the system, after the final button press, to chirp the siren again the
total number of times that the button was pressed.
Step 4 Configure stage 2 of the SecureCode by now pressing and releasing the
“Disarm/Unlock” button the number of times desired for the stage 2 (1
through 9 presses). This should be done in the exact same fashion as the
stage 1 entry- press the “Disarm/Unlock” button, wait for a single chirp
before pressing the button again, and then when final button press is done,
wait after the single chirp for the siren to chirp the total number entered.
To Activate Remote Starting:

basic Emergency Override procedure is described on page 14. Instead of a
single “1 press” of the Valet Switch which would be required in order to perform
an Emergency Override, two stages of Valet Switch presses must be made. In
each of the two stages, the Valet Switch will need to be pressed 1 through 9 times,
as programmed by the user.

THE PARKING LIGHTS
WILL ILLUMINATE*
* FLASHING PARKING
LIGHTS IS OPTIONAL
AND
To remote start the vehicle:
1- Press and release together the transmitter or Echo transceiver’s “Arm/Lock”
and “Disarm/Unlock” buttons. The system will respond first by rapidly
flashing the Status Light Green, then by turning on the ignition and
flashing the parking lights once.
2- The starter will engage until the engine runs; 10 seconds later the parking
lights will illuminate steady during the period that the engine is running
from being remotely started. (having them flash instead is an option).
If the Echo transceiver is used to activate remote engine starting feature, it
will further sequence status indications beyond what the system does in the
vehicle. When the Echo is used for remote starting:
• It will play a musical melody, and the “start” icon, puffs of smoke, appear
behind the vehicle (5 different musical melodies are programmable).
• Once the engine has started, when the vehicle’s parking lights come back on
the “start: icon’s puffs of smoke will change to appearing sequentially.
• When the engine stops running, whether by safety condition or transceiver
command, a different musical melody is played, and the “start” icon disappears. If a safety circuit stops the engine, the “crossed out key” icon will
momentarily appear (but not if the transceiver’s command stops the engine).
• If a safety circuit prevents the starting attempt, the “engine stopped” melody
will play, and the “crossed out key” icon will appear.
Step 5 Wait 10 seconds, and allow the system to time out of features programming mode (as indicated by a short sounding of the siren).
Once the engine has been remotely started, it will run for 10 minutes (an
optional 20 minute setting may be programmed). To remotely stop the engine
again press and release together the “Arm/Lock” and “Disarm/Unlock” buttons.
The system will stop the engine, and extinguish the parking lights.
• When leaving the vehicle before remote starting, remember to set the climate
controls to the desired heating or air conditioning settings.
Page 30
Page 19
•
If desired, the system’s alarm function may be armed or disarmed as needed
during remote start operations (the system must be disarmed before entering
the vehicle).
Should the engine fail to start on the first attempt, the system will subsequently
make as many as three further attempts, if needed. Please note that each starting
attempt takes approximately 20 seconds for the system to check the vehicle’s
status, cycle the ignition and starter circuits, and then monitor vehicle status again
before the next attempt.
Certain conditions will prevent the engine from remotely starting, or if
remotely started already, will stop the running engine. These conditions are:
✓ A pressed brake pedal.
✓ The gear selector not being in the “park” or “neutral” position, or alternatively,
the parking brake not being set.
✓ An open hood.
An open door will not prevent the system from starting the engine; if the engine
has already been remotely started, opening a door will not stop the running
engine, unless the system is armed. Opening a door with the engine running by
remote control and the system armed will result in the system going into an alarm
condition, sounding the siren and flashing the lights, and stopping the engine.
If a start command is sent from the transmitter, but any of the previously listed
conditions are present, the system will not attempt to start the engine and will
instead have a short sounding of the siren to indicate a violated safety circuit.
The violated safety circuit conditions which can produce this indication are the
gear selector not in the “park” position, an open hood or trunk, or a pressed brake
pedal. If the system is in Starting Valet Mode, it simply will not respond to a
transmitter or transceiver command.
To drive the vehicle away after remote starting, disarm the system (if needed)
open the door to enter the vehicle, insert the key into the ignition switch and turn
the switch to “on” or “run” position (not “start”!). Then press the brake pedal or
remove the gear selector from “park”; now the engine is no longer running from
the system, but rather from the ignition key. Pressing the Valet Switch also turn
off the system’s running the engine, but without the violated safety circuit siren
sounding.
“Stick Shift” Remote Starting Setup Procedure: When the 850i4e
is installed into a manual transmission vehicle, programmable feature #30 must
be turned on. Then, whenever remote starting will be desired later the following
procedure must be followed before exiting the vehicle:
To Change a Feature:
Step 5
After accessing the desired feature, within 10 seconds Press & Release either the transmitter/transceiver’s “Arm/Lock” button or the
“Disarm/Unlock” button.
• Pressing the “Arm/Lock” button turns the feature on; the siren will
chirp once and the Status Light will turn on.
• Pressing the “Disarm/Unlock” button turns the feature off; the
siren will chirp twice and the Status Light will turn off.
To Access and Change further Features:
Step 6
If there are more features to be programmed, within 10 seconds of
the previous action Press & Release the Valet Switch the same number of times as the next desired feature’s number.
• Again the siren will chirp and the Status Light will flash
as many times as the Valet Switch was pressed to indicate the new
feature number which is now accessed.
• Use the transmitter/transceiver as described in Step 5 to change the
newly accessed feature as desired.
• Repeat this Step 6 for each additional feature until all features are
programmed.
To Exit Programing Mode:
Step 7
Allow 10 seconds to pass without performing any programming
actions; or, turn the vehicles’s ignition in.
• The siren will sound briefly and the Status Light will go out to
confirm that the system is exiting Programing Mode.
Once the system is in Programming Mode, if at any time 10 seconds elapse
without programming activity, the system will automatically exit Programming
Mode. To prevent the system from prematurely exiting Programming Mode, the
feature can entered again by pressing the Valet Switch, or if a feature is accessed,
by pressing either of the transmitter or transceiver buttons. Features may be
selected and accessed in any order.
A convenient Feature Programming Checklist is on pages 46-47, which
greatly simplifies the feature programming process.
Step 1 With the engine running and foot on the brake, apply the parking brake,
put the transmission shifter in “neutral”, and remove your foot from the
brake.
Important Note: The following pages explain each of the programmable
features in detail. Please note that programmable features may add or change the
“factory-set” operations as described in this guide. Therefore, it is important to
read the description of any feature before changing it from its factory-set default
setting. Some programmable features are for installation-related issues only.

PROGRAMMING THE 850i e
The Crime Guard 850i4e is a sophisticated, yet flexible security and convenience
system. Many of its operations may be configured as the user desires.
“Programming Mode” allows you to configure 31 operational features to suit
your wants and needs. Your vehicle’s ignition key and the Valet Switch are used
to enter the Programming Mode, as described by the three steps listed below.
Once in Programming Mode, the Valet Switch is used to access the desired
feature, and the transmitter or transceiver is then used to change the chosen
feature’s status. During the process, the siren and the Status Light indicate certain
conditions of Programming Mode and the chosen feature’s status.
Once the system is in Programming Mode, the Valet Switch is then pressed
and released the number of times equal to the feature number which is to be
accessed for programming. After pressing the Valet Switch as many times as the
feature number, the siren will chirp the same number of times and the Status Light
will flash the same number, between pauses.
Once the feature has been selected its status, or setting, can be chosen by
pressing the appropriate button on the transmitter. Basically, pressing the
transmitter’s “Arm/Lock” button turns the feature on, or pressing the transmitter’s
“Disarm/Unlock” button turns the feature off. Features which are not “on or off”
features, such as the activated alarm duration of 30 or 60 seconds, are noted
otherwise.
To Enter Programing Mode:
Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Turn the vehicles’s ignition on.
Turn the ignition off.
Within 5 seconds, Press & Release the Valet Switch 5 times.
•The siren will chirp then sound briefly and the Status Light will
flash to confirm that the system is entering Programing Mode.
•Once in Programming Mode, if 10 seconds of no programming
activity occurs, the system will exit Programming Mode. Programming activity is the pressing of the Valet Switch or pressing a transmitter button once a feature is accessed.
To Access a Feature:
Step 4
Within 10 seconds, Press & Release the Valet Switch the same number of times as the desired feature’s number.
•The siren will chirp and the Status Light will flash as many times as
the Valet Switch was pressed to indicate the feature number which
is now accessed.
Page 28
Step 2 Press and release the transmitter’s “Arm/Lock” and “Disarm/Unlock”
buttons together. The Status Light will begin flashing Green, and the
850i4e is now keeping the vehicle’s engine running. Do not press the
brake pedal from this point, and the parking brake must remain on.
Step 3 Within 2 minutes, turn off the ignition key, exit the vehicle and then
press the transmitter’s “Arm/Lock” button to lock the vehicle. The
850i4e will also arm, and the previously running engine will stop. The
Status Light also changes to show the “armed” indication, flashing
slowly Red, but every fourth flash will be Green, indicating that the
system is “armed, and ready for remote starting”.
During the setup procedure, the parking brake must remain set, and the
regular brake pedal must not be pressed when and after the transmitter’s “Arm/
Lock” and “Disarm/Unlock” buttons are pressed. After exiting the vehicle, the
transmitter’s “Arm/Lock” button only must be used to secure the vehicle. Using
any other transmitter button will produce the appropriate system response, but the
remote starting setup will be voided.
Once the system is fully setup for remote starting, it will start the engine if the
next transmitter operation is pressing the “Arm/Lock” and “Disarm/Unlock”
buttons together. If any other transmitter button is the remote starting setup will
be voided. If the armed alarm should be triggered during this period, the remote
starting setup condition will be voided.
Pit-Stop Feature: This feature allows you to turn off the ignition switch,
remove your keys, leave the vehicle and lock your doors while leaving the engine running. To use this feature, have the engine running normally from the
ignition switch, have the gear selector in “park”, and your foot off of the brake
pedal. Press the Valet Switch twice; the parking lights will flash once and the
siren chirps 5 times; then turn the ignition off. The engine will remain running
for the programmed run time, or it will turn off if another transmitter/transceiver
signal is received, a safety circuit is violated, or if the Valet Switch is pressed.
Turbo Timer Feature: This feature is similar to the Pit-Stop operation,
but it must be programmed to operate (feature #31), and it will automatically
operate every time that the ignition key turns off. It is typically recommended
that users of vehicles equipped with turbocharged engines allow the engine to
idle a few minutes before turning it off. When this feature is programmed on,
the 850i4e will automatically keep the engine running for two minutes as follows:
•
With the engine running, hold the brake pedal and engage the parking brake.
When the brake pedal is released, the 850i4e will keep the engine running
for 2 minutes, and then automatically turn it off. The vehicle may be se-
Page 21
cured before this time by arming the system, which will also lock the doors.
After 2 minutes the engine will stop running. Turbo Timer can be prevented
form engaging, if desired, by turning the engine off first and then engaging the
parking brake, or step back on the brake pedal at any time to turn off the engine.
UNAUTHORIZED TRANSMITTER ALERT &
AUTOMATIC TRANSMITTER VERIFICATION
This patented technology, which is standard on all Crime Guard models,
eliminates an inherent weakness found in any remote-controlled vehicle security
and keyless entry system. In all such systems, allowance is made for multiple
transmitters to operate the system. In a matter of seconds, anyone familiar with
the programming procedure can easily code their own unauthorized transmitter
into the system. Although every vehicle remote-controlled keyless entry or
security system is susceptible, Crime Guard security systems audibly alerts you
if the system’s programming mode has been accessed and visually informs you
at all times of the number of remote controls capable of operating your system.
How It Works:
TM
Unauthorized Transmitter Alert : Anytime the system has a transmitter
and/or transceiver programmed, for 48 hours thereafter the siren will sound a
brief series of chirps every time the vehicle’s ignition is turned on. This audible
warning alerts you that the system has had transmitter programming activity.
Automatic Transmitter VerificationTM: In normal everyday use, for a
period of 10 seconds after the vehicle’s ignition is turned on, the system’s Status
Light reports the total number of transmitters or Echo transceivers which can
operate the system. For example: After turning on the vehicle’s ignition, if the
Status Light flashes twice between pauses, two transmitters are programmed to
operate the system. If the indication were three flashes between pauses, three
transmitters are capable of operating the system. If the Unauthorized Transmitter
Alert has been activated, this visual display period is extended to 90 seconds.
Every time that the Echo transceiver receives a signal from the system, it also
momentarily shows the number of operating transmitters/transceivers; this
occurs where the clock display normally shows the time.
VEHICLE RECOVERY
Your system is equipped with three separately programmable Vehicle Recovery
protection features, which also provide Anti-Carjacking protection. The Vehicle
Recovery operation may be selectively activated by the ignition, by an open door,
or by the transmitter or Echo transceiver.
How It Works:
Once the Vehicle Recovery process has begun, the user has 53 seconds to
cancel the process by pressing the Valet Switch once. If Vehicle Recovery is not
cancelled, 53 seconds after being activated the siren will begin to chirp for 7
seconds to alert the user that the system is about to enter into an alarm condition.
If the Vehicle Recovery process is not cancelled before the 60 second countdown expires, the system will enter an alarm condition, sounding the siren and
flashing the parking lights. The stater interrupt will engage 30 seconds after
this occurs, or immediately should the ignition be turned off in the meantime.
Once the system enters the alarm condition, it will not respond to the transmitter/transceiver, nor will the system reset automatically after 60 seconds.
Once in the alarm condition, the Vehicle Recovery Protection can only be disengaged by:
Step 1 Turning the vehicle’s ignition off.
Step 2 Turning the ignition back on.
Step 3 Within 5 seconds, perform an Emergency Override using the Valet
Switch.
Level #1: Vehicle Recovery activated by the vehicle’s ignition:
The Vehicle Recovery process is started every time the vehicle’s ignition is
turned on. This is programmable feature #14.
Level #2: Vehicle Recovery activated by an open door:
The Vehicle Recovery process is started by a door of the vehicle being opened,
but only if the ignition is on when the door is opened. This is programmable
feature #15.
Level #3: Vehicle Recovery activated using a remote control:
In the event that the Unauthorized Transmitter Alert is activated, or if the Status
Light ever shows a different number of authorized transmitters, you can easily
reprogram your transmitters to eliminate the threat.
The Vehicle Recovery process is started by pressing holding the transmitter’s or
Echo transceiver’s “lll” (or, “Auxiliary Output #3”) button for 3 seconds, but
only if the vehicle’s ignition is on. This is programmable feature #16.
Page 22
Page 27
and pause to indicate which protected zone was violated while the system is still
armed, after it’s disarmed, and until the vehicle’s ignition is turned on. The
system’s Zone Violation memory can store two consecutive zone violations. If
there have been multiple violations, the Status Light will replay the two most
recent violations in the order in which they occurred.
9) 2 Red Flashes / Pause = System was triggered by an open hood or trunk.
10) 3 Red Flashes / Pause = System was triggered by an open door.
11) 4 Red Flashes / Pause = System was triggered by the sensor.
ALARM VALET & STARTING VALET MODES
The Valet Switch may be located in the Status Light/Valet Switch Assembly,
or, the installer may have mounted the Valet Switch in a hidden, yet accessible
location. Please ensure that you and others who use your vehicle are aware of the
location of the Valet Switch.
Alarm Valet Mode: This allows you to turn off all of the “alarm” operations
Starting System Status: The primary function of the Status Light is to
indicate the status of the remote starting system:
12) Off = The remote starter system is off and in standby mode. The security
system is disarmed and not performing automatic functions.
13) Flashing Slow Green = The engine is running after remote starting.
14) Flashing Fast Green = A remote start command has been received, and the
system is in the process of starting the engine.
Remote Starting Diagnostics: Whenever the system is placed into Valet
Mode, the Status Light illuminates solid Red. However, when this occurs, the
Status Light will flash Red, then 1 to 6 Green flashes before resuming solid Red.
This indicates why the engine stopped running from the last previous remote
starting.
15) Red / 1 Green Flash / Red = Programmed run time expired.
16) Red / 2 Green Flashes / Red = Brake was pressed or hood opened.
17) Red / 3 Green Flashes / Red = Engine stalled or bad tach signal.
18) Red / 4 Green Flashes / Red = Received transmitter command to stop.
19) Red / 5 Green Flashes / Red = Gear selector removed from “park”.
20) Red / 6 Green Flashes / Red = Security system triggered or low voltage.
purpose is turn off the remote starting operations of the system. The system may
be placed into Starting Valet Mode and Alarm Valet Mode independently, or into
both modes at the same time. Please note that the only difference in obtaining
either mode is whether or not the brake pedal is being pressed.

Combination Indications: These indications occur when security and
remote starting operations are, or have been, simultaneous.
21) Slowly Alternates Red & Green = Full Valet Mode (page 24).
22) Solid Green w/ Red Flash = Security Armed with Starting Valet Mode.
23) Solid Red w/ Green Flash = Remote starter system engaged with security
system in Valet Mode.
24) Rapidly Alternates Red & Green = Remote starter system engaged with
security system armed.
25) Slow Flashing Green w/ 2 to 4 Red Flashes = This indication is during remote
start operation after disarming the alarm, and shows that the previously Armed alarm was activated and reset prior to the remote
starting. The Red flashes are the Zone Violation (previous page),

of the security system while retaining the remote convenience features such as
keyless entry, Panic, and the Auxiliary Outputs. The system may only be placed
into Alarm Valet Mode when it’s disarmed; if armed, an Emergency Override
must be performed before placing into Alarm Valet Mode. Once the system is
in Alarm Valet Mode, it cannot become armed from the transmitter, Last Door
Arming, or Automatic Rearming.
Although both operations use the Valet Switch, Alarm Valet Mode and
Emergency Override are two similar, but different procedures. Emergency
Override disarms an armed and activated system, and requires the ignition key.
Alarm Valet Mode turns off the alarm operations of the disarmed system, but
without the need of the ignition key.
Alarm Valet Mode is designed for situations in which it is not convenient for
the security portion of the system to be operational, such as during extended
stopovers for vehicle servicing, maintenance, valet parking, washing, etc.
Starting Valet Mode:
WITH THE SYSTEM DISARMED,
AND PRESSING THE BRAKE
PEDAL, PRESS AND HOLD THE
VALET SWITCH FOR 2 SECONDS
Full Valet Mode:
WITH THE SYSTEM DISARMED, PRESS AND HOLD
THE VALET SWITCH WITH AND WITHOUT DEPRESSING THE BRAKE
PEDAL. HOLD THE VALET SWITCH UNTIL 4 CHIRPS TOTAL ARE HEARD.

To enter Alarm Valet Mode:
With the system disarmed, and without pressing the brake pedal, Press & Hold
the Valet Switch for 2 seconds.
• The siren will chirp twice, the parking lights will flash twice and the Status
Indicator Light will illuminate solid Red, then a series of Green flashes, then
return to solid Red. The Green flashes, numbering from 1 to 6 times, is a
remote starting diagnostic code (see page 26).
• To indicate that the system is in Alarm Valet Mode, the Status Light
remains solid Red whenever the system is in Alarm Valet Mode.
• To remind the user that the system is in Alarm Valet Mode, the siren will
chirp once every time the vehicle’s ignition is turned off.
To Enter Starting Valet Mode:
With the system disarmed, and depressing the brake pedal, Press & Hold the
Valet Switch for 2 seconds.
• The siren will chirp twice, the parking lights will flash twice and the Status
Indicator Light will illuminate solid Green to confirm that the system is in
Starting Valet Mode.
• There is no audible reminder that the system is in Starting Valet mode.
To Enter both Modes (Full Valet Mode):
With the system disarmed, Press & Hold the Valet Switch for 4-6 seconds with
the brake pedal in both conditions. For example, start pressing the Valet Switch
with the brake pedal unpressed; as soon as two chirps are heard, press the brake
pedal but do not release the Valet Switch. As soon as a second set of chirps is
heard, the Valet Switch may be released. The system is now in Full Valet Mode.
It does not matter in what order the pressed or unpressed brake pedal occurs.
• Once the system is in Full Valet Mode the Status Light will slowly alternate
Green and Red to confirm that the system is in Full Valet Mode. This indication
is present whenever the system is in Full Valet Mode.
• There will be the single chirp reminder every time the ignition turns off. This
is for the Valet Mode part of the Full Valet Mode condition.
• It will play a musical melody.
• Whatever status icons previously displayed will be replaced by the “VALET”
icon.
When the system is removed from Alarm Valet Mode, the Echo will again play
a melody, and the “VALET” icon changes to “DISARMED”. The “VALET” icon
is for Alarm Valet Mode only; Starting Valet Mode is indicated by the Status Light
only.
STATUS INDICATOR LIGHT
The Status Light visually confirms the status of the system and provides a high
level of visual deterrence. Two colors are shown- Red for security operations, and
Green for remote starting operations. Combinations of both colors are seen when
the two operations are occurring together. The Status Light, which shares a
housing assembly with the Valet Switch, is normally mounted in a location where
it can be easily seen by the driver, as well as from outside the vehicle.
Security System Status: The Red colored operations of the Status Light
indicate the status of the security system:
1) Off = The security system is disarmed and not performing automatic functions.
The remote starter system is off, but in standby mode.
2) On Red Constant = The security system is in the Valet Mode, with the remote
starter system off and in standby mode.
3) Flashing Slow Red = The security system is fully armed, with the remote starter
system off and in standby mode.
4) Flashing Fast Red = Last Door Arming or Automatic Rearming is in progress,
with the remote starter system off and in standby mode.
Simply Press & Release the Valet Switch at any time.
• The Status Light will turn off to confirm exit from either Alarm
Valet Mode, Starting Valet Mode, or both.
Automatic Transmitter Verification: For the first 10 seconds after the
vehicle’s ignition is turned on, the Status Light will flash Red a number of times
that equal the number of transmitters and/or Echo transceivers that are capable of
operating the system:
5) 1 Red Flash /pause = 1 transmitter/transceiver is programmed.
6) 2 Red Flashes /pause = 2 transmitters/transceivers are programmed.
7) 3 Red Flashes /pause = 3 transmitters/transceivers are programmed.
8) 4 Red Flashes /pause = 4 transmitters/transceivers are programmed.
The Echo Transceiver’s Reaction to Valet Mode:
Zone Violation: If the system enters an alarm condition, the Status Light will
If the Echo transceiver was last used to operate the system, when the system
is placed into alarm Valet Mode it will send a signal to the Echo. When this occurs:
stop flashing slow Red and begin to flash in sequence to indicate which protected
zone caused the alarm condition. The Status Light will flash
