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 Omega MAX-E 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 Omega MAX-E 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
Before attempting feature programming, please carefully read pages 25-26 for the
entire features programming instructions, and also see the detailed explanation of
each programmable feature, which may be found on pages 27 through 39. To
program features, follow these steps:
Step 1 Turn the ignition “off”, and press the Valet Switch 5 times.
(the system will respond a siren chirp, then briefly sounding the siren
and the Status Light begins flashing Red)
Step 2 Press the Valet Switch the same number of times as the feature number.
(the system will acknowledge the Valet Switch entry by repeating the same
number of siren chirps and the Status Light flashes in Red an equal amount)
Step 3 Press the transmitter’s "Arm/Lock" button to turn the feature “on” or press
the "Disarm/Unlock" button to turn the feature “off”.
(turning the feature “on” is indicated by one siren chirp and the Status Light
being on; turning the feature “off” is indicated by two siren chirps and the
Status Light being off)
Repeat - Steps 2 and 3 for each feature to be changed

Congratulations on your purchase of a new Omega MAX-E security and remote
starting system. Omega MAX-E systems combine the benefits of easy-to-use
convenience with “MAXimum protection” of property and person. Please review
this guide to become familiar with your Omega MAX-E vehicle security and
remote starting system. To operate your system, the three principal components are
first described: the Transmitter, the Status Indicator Light, and the Valet Switch.
The Transmitter: Your system comes with two pre-learned remote controls, or
“transmitters”, and is capable of being operated by as many as four transmitters. The
transmitter has four buttons: one is marked with a “lock” graphic, one is marked
with an “unlock” graphic, and the remaining two buttons are marked “II” and “III”.
A 2-way remote transceiver, the Omega Echo, (pages 40-44) is optional.
Every transmitter has its own unique, invisible electronic “code”, which
randomly changes each time the transmitter is used. This effectively protects your
system against “code grabber” devices, like those used to copy cellular phone
security codes. Another exclusive patented feature, Unauthorized Transmitter
Alert, also protects your system from a transmitter being programmed to operate it
without your knowledge. These features, and many others, ensure that Omega
MAX-E systems are the most secure and sophisticated vehicle security systems
available. How to use your transmitter is explained throughout this guide.
The Status Indicator Light: The multicolored Status Indicator Light, placed in
a visible location in the vehicle’s interior, reflects 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 Indicator Light may be found on pages 21-22.

ABOUT YOUR NEW OMEGA MAX-E SYSTEM
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”.
✓ 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 is lost or becomes inoperable. This is referred to as “performing
an Emergency Override”.
✓ The Valet Switch is used in the procedure of programming operational features
and also for encoding transmitters to operate the system.
How to use the Valet Switch for every day system operation is explained on pages
9-11 and 19-20, and its use in programming is explained later in this guide.
Page 3
USING YOUR OMEGA MAX-E SYSTEM
Arming the Omega MAX-E 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 two methods of Arming the security system:
1- The first method is to use the transmitter, by pressing and releasing its “Arm/
Lock” button. The system must not already be in Alarm Valet Mode (page 1920), 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 Last Door Arming, which configures the system to
automatically arm every time you exit the vehicle. This method of arming is
programmable, and so it may be used or not used as desired.

• The parking lights will flash once (or three times if a zone is bypassed).
• The doors will lock*.
• The starter interrupt will engage.
• The Status Indicator 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.
* An optional doorlock interface must be installed
Page 4
• 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;
disarming with the transmitter/
transceiver will unlock the doors unless the system is activated and sounding.
• “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 3rd Channel Output is operated.
• “HOOD/TRUNK” indicates that this vehicle zone 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 icon appears, 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, and is
accompanied by a musical melody. This icon stays on while remote start is
Page 41
Step 4 Repeat the previous step for each transmitter or transceiver which is to
operate the system.
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
Indicator Light visual display; for the next 48 hours the siren will sound
a brief series of chirps every time the vehicle’s ignition is turned on.
THE OPTIONAL
OMEGA ECHO TRANSCEIVER
An exciting upgrade option to your Omega MAX-E system is a 2-way
remote “transceiver”, the Omega Echo. The remote transceiver, in addition to
operating your system, also receives signals from the system, and displays a variety
of system conditions on its LCD screen. Your system can be operated by as many
as four standard transmitters and/or Echo transceivers.
The Echo has the same four operational buttons as the standard transmitter- the
“Arm/Lock”, the “Disarm/Unlock”, the “II” 2nd Channel Output button, and “III”
button for remote Panic or 3rd Channel Output. The Echo transceiver has a fifth
button, the “Programming” button; pressing this button will illuminate the LCD
screen.
Echo 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:

Arming Bypass:
When arming the system using the transmitter, if any protected zone or sensor
circuit is in a violated condition, the arming confirmation will change to three
chirps and light flashes; and the affected zone or circuit will automatically be
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 it becomes
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 three times
and the parking lights will flash three times to alert you. However, if a door zone
is bypassed, the siren and light confirmation will be the normal one chirp and
flash, 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.
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. 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. The Last Door Arming feature may include, if
desired, the automatic locking of the vehicle’s doors when the system arms itself.*
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 once, the parking lights will flash
once, and the Status Indicator Light will begin flashing Red rapidly. The Last
Door Arming countdown has begun.
2- Thirty seconds later the siren will again chirp once, the parking lights will again
flash once, 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:
“Arm/Lock”
Button
Page 40
• If a door is reopened during the thirty second period between the first and
second chirps, the countdown will stop and reset. When the reopened door is
closed again, the 30 second countdown starts over again at the beginning.
Page 5
• Last Door Arming is separate from, and does not effect the operation of arming
by using the transmitter.
• 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, 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 (page 19-20).
• Leave a vehicle door open. Or, in most cases turning on the interior light will
be detected by the system as an open door, preventing it from arming itself.
• 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.
SYSTEM ARMED & ACTIVATED
While the system is in the Armed state:
• The Status Indicator 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.
• 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 60 seconds (30 is optional) unless
the system is disarmed using the transmitter 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 from the normal two siren chirps and two
light flashes to four chirps and flashes to indicate that the system was activated.
This is the “Activation Alert”, which is explained on page 8.
• Should the system become activated, the Status Indicator Light will change to
flashing a “violated zone” code; see pages 21-22.
* An optional doorlock interface must be installed

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).
#36 Turbo Timer: Default Off
This feature, described on page 18, when turned on configures the MAX-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 program the
feature, follow Steps 1 to 4 on page 25; at Step 4 the Valet Switch will be pressed
and released thirty six times. The system’s response will be thirty six siren chirps,
and the Status Light flashing thirty six 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
Your Omega MAX-E system is capable of being operated by as many as four
controllers; these can be any combination of standard “1-way” transmitters or
optional Omega Echo transceivers (described in following pages). 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 1 Turn the vehicle’s ignition “on”.
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.
Page 39
While the default-set minimum is sufficient for most vehicles; the Extended Starter
Cranking Time can be used for difficult-to-start engines.
This feature selects the processor’s method of determining the status of the
engine running during remote start operation. As explained in the previous
feature’s description, “Tachless” mode has an associated base starter output time
duration. However, if the voltage fluctuation is detectable, the processor adjusts the
starter output time accordingly. When this feature is set for “Tach Wire” operation,
the base starter output increases to 3 seconds, but the processor adjusts the actual
starter engagement time accordingly. Connecting and use of the “Tach Wire” is the
most reliable form of engine running information input, and its use is recommended.
Programming Tach Wire or Tachless:
Prior to programming this feature, please refer to the “Installation Manual” for proper wiring connection and the
Tach Learning Procedure, both of which are required to use this feature. To
program the feature, follow Steps 1 to 4 on page 25; at Step 4 the Valet Switch will
be pressed and released thirty four times. The system’s response will be thirty four
siren chirps, and the Status Light flashing thirty four 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).
There are three methods of Disarming the security system:
1- The first method is to press and release the transmitter’s “Disarm/Unlock”
button to disarm the system. This is the normal method.
2- The second method is to press and release the transmitter’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.

This feature changes the parameters of the MAX-E’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 MAX-E 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 15 through 18.
Programming Stick Shift Remote Starting: The operation of this
featuredepends 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 25; at Step 4 the Valet Switch
will be pressed and released thirty five times. The system’s response will be thirty
five siren chirps, and the Status Light flashing thirty five times, pausing, then
repeating. Within 10 seconds, press and release the transmitter’s "Arm/Lock"

#34 “Tach Wire” or “Tachless” Starter Operation: Default “Tachless”
DISARMING THE SYSTEM
Upon Disarming:
• The siren will chirp twice (or four times if an alarm activation occurred) unless
the silent disarming procedure is followed.
• The parking and dome lights will flash twice, then illuminate for 30 seconds
unless the vehicle’s ignition is turned on. If the system has been activated, the
parking lights will flash four times before illuminating.
• The doors will unlock, either all doors or driver’s door only.*
• The starter interrupt will disengage.
• The Status Indicator Light will show one of these features or conditions:
-Flashing Red rapidly = Automatic Rearming feature is in progress.
-Off = System disarmed (Automatic Rearming feature not selected).
-Flash Red /Pause = Indicates violated zone if system has been activated.
*
An optional doorlock interface, in either standard form or driver’s door priority form, must be installed

Safety Disarm Feature:
#31 Steady/Flashing Lights During Remote Start: Default Steady
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, adjacent 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.
This Feature configures the system's operation of the vehicle’s parking lights
when the engine is running after it has been remotely started. The factory default
setting has the parking lights illuminating steady during the engine run time; the
other setting flashes the parking lights on and off during the engine run time.
Programming Steady or Flashing Parking Lights: Follow Steps 1 to 4 on
page 25; 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 configure the system for steady parking lights
(the siren will chirp once) or the "Disarm/Unlock" button to configure the system
for flashing parking lights (the siren will chirp twice).
Activation Alert:
If the system experiences an alarm condition and resets itself, upon disarming
the siren will chirp four times and the parking lights will flash four times instead of
the normal two chirps and two light flashes. Additionally, the Status Indicator
Light will be flashing a “Zone Violation Code”. When the alarm condition
activation occurred, the Status Indicator Light changes from flashing slowly to
flashing two to four times 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 Indicator Light will display the Zone Violation Code in place of fast
flashes indicating Automatic Rearming, should it be programmed to operate.
• Should the system be rearmed before the ignition clears the Zone Violation Code
memory, the Status Indicator 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.
#32 Gasoline Or Diesel Engine: Default Gasoline
This Feature changes the system's timing of the ignition and starter output
sequence for remotely starting vehicles with a diesel engine.
Programming Gasoline or Diesel Engine: Follow Steps 1 to 4 on page 25;
at Step 4 the Valet Switch will be pressed and released thirty two times. The
system’s response will be thirty two siren chirps, and the Status Light flashing thirty
two times, pausing, then repeating. Within 10 seconds, press and release the
transmitter’s "Arm/Lock" 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).
#33 Extended Starter Cranking Time: Default Minimum
Whenever the system is disarmed by the transmitter, this feature starts a 90
second countdown, which is indicated by a rapidly flashing Red Status Indicator
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 lock or relock the doors when this occurs.
This feature operates in conjunction with the next feature’s “Tachless” setting.
The Omega MAX-E 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
25; at Step 4 the Valet Switch will be pressed and released thirty three times. The
system’s response will be thirty three siren chirps, and the Status Light flashing
thirty three 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)

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, and you may not even be aware of
an accidental disarming.
How It Works:
#28 Open Door Warning Upon Arming: Default Off
Automatic Rearming Notes:
When this feature is programmed to operate, if one of the vehicle's doors is open
when the system is armed using the remote transmitter, the siren will chirp 3 times
instead of once when arming the system with the transmitter.
Programming Open Door warning Upon Arming: Follow Steps 1 to 4 on
page 25; 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’s "Arm/Lock" button to turn on Open Door Warning Upon
Arming (the siren will chirp once) or the "Disarm/Unlock" button to turn this
feature off (the siren will chirp twice).
• Turning on the vehicle’s ignition cancels Automatic Rearming.
• Opening a door will suspend the 90 second countdown.
• All protected zones must remain non-violated during the 90 second Automatic
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 21-22). 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.
#29 “III” Button Operates Remote Panic: Default On
This feature changes the remote transmitter's operation of the Remote Panic feature
and the 3rd channel output. When this feature is turned off, pressing the
transmitter's “III” button for 3 seconds will operate the 3rd channel output. The
remote panic feature can still be operated, by pressing either the “Arm/Lock” or
“Disarm/Unlock” button for 3 seconds to activate it. Once activated, pressing either
of these buttons will deactivate the remote panic feature. When button “III” is
programmed to operate the 3rd channel output, Remote Panic can be activated by
pressing together the “II” and “III” buttons.
Programming “III” Button Operates 3rd Channel Output: Follow Steps 1
to 4 on page 25; 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 turn on the “III” Button Operates 3rd
Channel Output (the siren will chirp once) or the "Disarm/Unlock" button to have
the “III” button operate the Remote Panic feature (the siren will chirp twice).
Driver’s Door Priority Unlocking Notes:
• There is no time limitation for the second pressing of the “Disarm/Unlock”
button. Once the button is pressed and released to Disarm the system, every
subsequent pressing of the “Disarm/Unlock” button will produce the “unlock
all doors” output, the single siren chirp and parking and dome light illumination period. When the system is next armed, by any of the three methods, the
operation is reset so the next use of the “Disarm/Unlock” button will result in
the system Disarming and producing the “unlock driver’s door only” output.
• When disarming a system configured for Driver’s Door Priority, the user has
the option of Silent Disarming (by pressing twice the 2nd Channel Output button), and then pressing the “Unlock/Disarm” button, if needed, to unlock all of
the doors.
#30 Remote Start Run Time 10 Or 20 Minutes: Default 10 Minutes
DISARMING BY EMERGENCY OVERRIDE
This feature sets the period of time that the engine will run after being remotely
started. If the engine is not stopped by transmitter or a safety circuit violation, the
engine will automatically stop upon the expiration of the selected time period.
Programming 10 or 20 Minute Run Time: Follow Steps 1 to 4 on page 25;
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 20 minute remote start engine run
time (the siren will chirp once) or the "Disarm/Unlock" button to configure the
system for 10 minute run time (the siren will chirp twice).
In the event that your transmitter is lost, damaged, or its batteries have become
exhausted, the Valet Switch and the vehicle’s ignition key may be used to disarm
the system. These Emergency Override instructions reflect a default setting of “1
press”; but be aware that the “SecureCode” programmable feature, described on the
following page, allows the owner to customize the number of Valet Switch presses
needed for the Emergency Override.

THE VALET SWITCH
THE SYSTEM WILL DISARM
To Disarm the System without using a Transmitter:
Step 1 With the system in the armed condition, enter the vehicle via the driver's
door (be aware that the system will activate to an alarm condition when the
door is opened).
Step 2 Using the ignition key, turn the vehicle’s ignition on.
Step 3 Within 5 seconds, press and release the Valet Switch once. The system will
immediately disarm.
If a customized SecureCode has been programmed, the system will disarm a few
seconds after the correct entry, and if an incorrect entry is made, the system will not
disarm. A procedure which is separate, but similar, to an Emergency Override is
the Alarm Valet Mode (page 19-20); which prevents the system from performing
any automatic arming operations which may be otherwise programmed to occur.
THE VALET SWITCH
The Valet Switch is typically contained within
the same housing as the Status Light (upper
picture is the bottom of this housing), or the
installer may have placed it in its own hidden
location (lower picture is the Valet Switch
itself). In either case, the Valet Switch
should be readily accessible, and if you are
unaware of its location, have the installing
dealer show you its location and explain its
operation. The Valet Switch is a critical part
of your Omega MAX-E system!

(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 by ear.
#23 Total Closure Lock Output: Default OFF
If the vehicle is has an existing total closure feature, this programmable feature
allows 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 Feature. Turning
this feature on changes the door lock output pulse to a 28 second duration. Note:
when this feature is used, if the Arm/Lock or Disarm/Unlock button is pressed
during the 28 second period, the only action will be turning off the lock output.

SecureCode:
“SecureCode” allows the user to customize the number of Valet Switch presses
which are required to successfully perform an Emergency Override. The basic
Emergency Override procedure is described on pages 9-10. 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. This is the Emergency Override procedure if the system
has programmed with a customized SecureCode:
Step 1 With the system in the armed condition, enter the vehicle via the driver's
door (be aware that the system will activate to an alarm condition when the
door is opened).
Step 2 Using the ignition key, turn the vehicle’s ignition switch on.
Step 3 Within 5 seconds press and release the Valet Switch the same number of
times that have been programmed for stage #1.
Step 4 After a few seconds, the siren will stop sounding, chirp once, and then
resume sounding.
Step 5 Now, within 5 seconds press and release the Valet Switch the same number
of times that have been programmed for stage #2. Within a few seconds
the siren will stop sounding, and the unit will disarm.
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 program your own
customized SecureCode is explained on page 27.

• At the end of the Panic cycle the system will reset, enter the armed state, and
lock the doors.
To Deactivate Panic:
Press & Release any of the three buttons
Deactivating Remote Panic from the “Arm/Lock” button results in the system
being in the Armed state with locked doors. If the “Disarm/Unlock” button is
used to deactivate Remote Panic the system will be in the Disarmed state, with
unlocked doors. Deactivating Remote Panic from the “III” button will not affect
the system’s Armed / Disarmed status, nor the doorlocks.
Note: the “III” button may be programmed to operate 3rd Channel Output instead
of Remote Panic, by programmable feature #29.

OTHER TRANSMITTER OPERATIONS
The previous sections have described the basic everyday operations of your
Omega MAX-E system. The transmitter 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). The 2nd Channel output is also capable of Disarming the
system; thus it is ideally suited for remote trunk release. Operating the 2nd Channel Output will also unlock the doors when it Disarms 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 final output, the 3rd Channel Output, cannot
affect the armed or disarmed status of the system, nor unlock the doors as part of
its operation.

#18 Doorlock Pulse Time: Default .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 Omega MAX-E 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 13
Auxiliary Output Notes:
• The 2nd Channel Output may be activated anytime, provided the vehicle’s ignition is off. While the ignition is on, the 2nd Channel Output can be operated as
long as a vehicle door is open; this prevents the output from being accidentally
activated while driving.
• If feature #17 is programmed to have the 2nd Channel Output disarm the system, the doors will unlock* when the output is activated; and there is an audible
confirmation only of two siren chirps (the lights do not flash).
• Regardless of the system’s armed or disarmed status and regardless of feature
#17’s setting, when the 2nd Channel Output is operated the system chirps twice
but the lights do not flash.
• 3rd Channel Output may be activated at any time, regardless of the ignition
being on or off, and regardless of the security system’s status.
• The 3rd Channel Output has no audible and/or visual confirmation.
* An optional doorlock interface must be installed. When the 2nd Channel Output is operated, all of the doors
will unlock, even if the vehicle is configured with Driver’s Door Priority unlocking.
SILENT ARMING AND DISARMING
The transmitter can also silently Arm or Disarm the system. Pressing the

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.
✓ If manual transmission, the vehicle was entered or disturbed after the setup
procedure was performed.
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 activating the system, which will stop
the running engine.
If a start command is sent from the transmitter, but any of the following
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.
#5 Automatic Starter Interrupt: Default Off
Programming this feature "on" will cause the Starter Interrupt circuit to automatically engage 90 seconds after the ignition switch is turned off, and also 90
seconds after disarming unless the ignition switch is turned on during the 90 second period. This feature will engage the Starter Interrupt circuit independently of
all other system functions, and the engagement of Starter Interrupt will occur even
if the system is in an otherwise disarmed state. Once the Starter Interrupt output is
activated by this feature, the system must be disarmed with the transmitter, or
placed into valet mode, to disengage it in order to start the vehicle. Only the
starter interrupt engages- there is no visual indication that it is engaged.
Programming Automatic Starter Interrupt: Follow Steps 1 to 4 on page 25;
at Step 4 the Valet Switch will be pressed and released five times. The system’s
response will be five siren chirps, and the Status Light flashing five times, pausing,
then repeating. Within 10 seconds, press and release the transmitter’s "Arm/Lock"
button to turn on the Automatic Starter Interrupt feature (the siren will chirp once)
or the "Disarm/Unlock" button to turn off the Automatic Starter Interrupt feature
(the siren will chirp twice).
#6 Ignition Activated Override: Default Off
This feature allows an activated system to be overridden and disarmed by
simply turning the ignition switch on within 10 seconds of the system’s activation.
After 10 seconds, the Emergency Override only can disarm the system in place of
the transmitter.
Page 28
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. To indicate this, the system will briefly
sound the siren. Pressing the Valet Switch will 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 MAX-E
is installed into a manual transmission vehicle, programmable feature #35 must be
turned on. Then, whenever remote starting will be desired later the following
procedure must be followed before exiting the vehicle:
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.
Step 2 Press and release the transmitter’s “Arm/Lock” and “Disarm/Unlock”
buttons together. The Status Light will begin flashing Green, and the
MAX-E 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 MAX-E will
also arm, and the previously running engine will stop. The Status Light
Page 17
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”.
From this point, the vehicle may be remote started provided that it is not
disturbed. When ready to remote start, the activation of remote starting is the same
as previously described: press and release the transmitter’s “Arm/Lock” and
“Disarm/Unlock” buttons together.
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 pressed 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 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 #36), 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 MAX-E 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 MAX-E will keep the engine running for
2 minutes, and then automatically turn it off.
#1 SecureCode (for Emergency Override): Default 1 Press
SecureCode is a unique patented feature which allows you to custom select the
number of Valet Switch presses in two stages, instead of a single “1 press”, which
would be required in order to perform an Emergency Override. If any of the three
anti-carjacking features are utilized, a customized SecureCode would also be
required to turn it off once it is fully activated. The SecureCode operation is
described on page 11.
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 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 Continue to configure stage 2 of the SecureCode by now pressing and releasing the “Disarm/Unlock” button the number of times desired for the
stage 2. This should be done in the exact same fashion as the stage 1 entrypress 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 stage 2 number entered.
#2 Last Door Arming: Default Off
This feature configures the system to automatically Arm itself 30 seconds after
the vehicle’s last door is closed.
Programming Last Door Arming: Follow Steps 1 to 4 on page 25; at Step 4
the Valet Switch will be pressed and released two times. The system’s response will
be two siren chirps, and the Status Light flashing two times, pausing, then repeating.
Within 10 seconds, press and release the transmitter’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).
#3 Automatic Rearming: Default Off
After 2 minutes the engine will stop running. The alarm may be armed while the
engine is 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 the running engine off.
This feature prevents your system from being disarmed accidentally, configuring the system to automatically rearm itself 90 seconds after it has been Disarmed
by the transmitter. The operation of the Automatic Rearming feature is explained
in more detail on pages 8-9.

as many times as the Valet Switch was pressed to indicate the new
feature number which is now accessed.
• Use the transmitter 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 on.
• The siren will sound briefly and the Status Indicator Light will go
out to confirm that the system is exiting Programing Mode.
Important Note: 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 be entered again by pressing the Valet Switch, or if a feature
is accessed, by pressing either of the transmitter buttons. Features can be selected
in any order as desired.
The following pages explain each of the programmable features in detail. A
convenient feature programming checklist is on page 45, which greatly simplifies
the feature programming process.
Page 26
ALARM VALET & STARTING VALET MODES
The Valet Switch may be located in the Status Indicator 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 and its uses. If the system has been
upgraded with optional 2-way Omega Echo, the Valet Switch is in the window unit.
Alarm Valet Mode: This allows you to turn off all of the “alarm” operations
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: This feature is similar to Alarm Valet Mode, but its
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.
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 22).
• To indicate that the system is in Alarm Valet Mode, the Status Indicator 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.
Page 19
PROGRAMMING THE MAX-E
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 the two chirps are heard, press the brake
pedal but do not release the Valet Switch. As soon as a second set of two 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 Indicator 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.

The Omega MAX-E 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 36 operational features to suit your wants and needs.
Your vehicle 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 is then used
to change the chosen feature’s status. During the process, the siren and the Status
Indicator 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 Indicator 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.

This patented technology, which is standard on all Omega models, eliminates an
inherent weakness found in any remote-controlled vehicle security or 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, Omega security systems audibly alert you if the system’s programming
mode has been accessed and visually informs you at all times of the number of
transmitters capable of operating your system. Someday this technology will be
standard on all remote-controlled keyless entry and security systems; today, only
the most advanced systems offer this complete protection.
STATUS INDICATOR LIGHT
The Status Indicator 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 Indicator 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.
If the system has been upgraded with optional 2-way Omega Echo, the Status
Indicator Light is in the window unit.
Security System Status: The Red colored operations of the Status Indicator
Light indicate the status of the security system:
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.
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.
Automatic Transmitter VerificationTM: In normal everyday use, for a period
Automatic Transmitter Verification: For the first 10 seconds after the
of 10 seconds after the vehicle’s ignition is turned on, the system’s Status Indicator
Light reports the total number transmitters which can operate the system. However,
if the Unauthorized Transmitter Alert has been activated, this visual display period
is extended to 90 seconds. For example: After turning on the vehicle’s ignition, if
the Status Indicator 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.
In the event that the Unauthorized Transmitter alert is activated, or if the Status
Indicator Light ever shows different number of authorized transmitters, you can
easily reprogram your transmitters to eliminate the threat.
vehicle’s ignition is turned on, the Status Indicator Light will flash Red a number
of times that equal the number of transmitters that are capable of operating the
system:
How It Works:
Unauthorized Transmitter AlertTM: Anytime the system has a transmitter
5) 1 Red Flash /pause = 1 transmitter is programmed.
6) 2 Red Flashes /pause = 2 transmitters are programmed.
7) 3 Red Flashes /pause = 3 transmitters are programmed.
8) 4 Red Flashes /pause = 4 transmitters are programmed.
Zone Violation: If the system enters an alarm condition, the Status Indicator
Light will stop flashing slow Red and begin to flash in sequence to indicate which
protected zone caused the alarm condition. The Status Indicator Light will flash 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 feature’s memory can store two consecutive zone violations. If there have
been multiple violations, the Status Indicator Light will show the two most recent
violations in the order in which they occurred.
9) 2 Red Flashes / Pause = System was triggered by 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.
• Turning on the ignition will clear the Zone Violation.
Starting System Status: The primary function of the Status Indicator Light
is to indicate the status of the security 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 via the remote starting system.
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 Indicator Light illuminates solid Red. However, when this occurs,
the Status Indicator 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.
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 21).
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/ 1 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),
occurring with the “engine running” indicator.
26) Slowly Flashing Red 3 Times, Green 1 Time = The system is programmed
for manual transmission remote starting, and is armed and ready
for starting.

ANTI-CARJACKING PROTECTION
The Omega MAX-E is equipped with three separately programmable AntiCarjacking Protection features. The Anti-Carjacking Protection operation may be
selectively activated by the ignition, by an open door, or by the transmitter.
How It Works:
Once the Anti-Carjacking Protection process has begun, the user has 53 seconds
to cancel the process by pressing the Valet Switch once. If Anti-Carjacking
Protection 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 Anti-Carjacking Protection 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. 30 seconds after this occurs, or should the ignition be turned off in the meantime, the stater interrupt will engage.
Once the system enters the alarm condition, it will not respond to the
transmitter, nor will the system reset automatically after 60 seconds.
Once in the alarm condition, the Anti-Carjacking 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: Anti-Carjacking Protection activated by the ignition:
The Anti-Carjacking Protection process is started every time the vehicle’s ignition
is turned on. This is programmable feature #25.
Level #2: Anti-Carjacking Protection activated by an open door:
The Anti-Carjacking Protection 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 #26.
Level #3: Anti-Carjacking Protection activated using a transmitter:
The Anti-Carjacking Protection process is started by pressing holding the
transmitter’s “lll” button for 3 seconds, but only if the vehicle’s ignition is on.
This is programmable feature #27.
