Remote Programming Routine
IMPORTANT: Any and all remotes must be coded to the control module prior to performing any and all
operations.
STEP 1: Activate programming mode by manually turning the vehicle’s key between the Ign On and Off
(or the Acc & On positions) five times within 10 seconds. The vehicle’s parking lights will flash
once with the successful completion of this step. Note: if the foot brake (+ brake input) is
applied during this process your system will enter Valet Mode and the remotes will
not program.
STEP 2: Within a 2 second period after the 5th ignition cycle tap Button I on two way remotes or the Lock
button on one-way remotes for a half second. The parking lights will flash once to confirm the
transmitter has been coded. Repeat for additional remotes, up to four. Note: if you only have
2 remotes please program each remote twice.
Exiting Programming: Programming is a timed sequence. After 2 seconds
the parking lights will flash twice signaling the end of programming mode.
Programming Multiple Remotes: After the confirmation flash given in STEP
2, code additional remotes by tapping Button I on two way remotes or
the Lock button on one way remotes. The parking lights will flash once
confirming each additional remote. This system can recognize up to four
remotes. Note: if you only have 2 remotes please program
each remote twice.
Valet Mode
Valet Mode disables all system features except for the keyless entry. Use Valet when servicing or loaning your
vehicle to others to avoid any inconvenience or mishap when operating the vehicle. There are no visual
indicators when the security system is in Valet Mode. There is a parking light indication when remote starting
in Valet Mode. (3 flashes followed by 10 flashes). Also when in Valet Mode, the keyless entry feature will still
operate.
The system can be put into valet mode one of 3 ways:
1. While holding the foot brake (12V+ brake input), cycle the key to the Ignition or ‘On’ position and then
back to the ‘Off’ position 5 times within 10 seconds. The parking lights will flash once indicating that the
system has entered Valet Mode.
2. Turn the key to the Ignition or ‘On’ position then using a 4 button remote press and release the lock and
trunk buttons together simultaneously for a half second. The vehicle parking lights will flash 1 time to
indicate the system has successfully entered valet mode.

The System can be taken out of Valet mode by one of the following procedures:
1. No Remote: If there are no remotes or there are no remotes available you can exit Valet Mode by
turning the key to the ignition or ‘On’ position then press and release the foot brake pedal 10 times
within 10 seconds. This procedure will only deactivate Valet Mode it will not activate Valet Mode. The
vehicles parking lights should flash 2 times to indicate the system has exited valet mode
2. With Remote: While within remote range of the vehicle, using a 4 button remote, press and release the
lock and trunk button together simultaneously for a half second. The vehicle’s parking lights will flash 2
times to indicate the system has exited Valet Mode.
a. When using a 1 button remote to exit valet turn the key to the ignition or ‘On’ position. Press
and release the remote button for a half second. Wait for the remote LED to stop flashing and repeat
for a total of 5 times within 10 seconds. Once you have tapped the remote button 5 times the vehicles
parking lights will flash 2 times to indicate the system has exited Valet Mode.
3. Valet Mode can also be disabled using DroneMobile from the users account at www.dronemobile.
com. Once logged in to the user account select the settings tab. Then select the controller settings, check
Valet mode and click Save. (If valet mode is already checked, uncheck it and then click save it should
exit valet) Once you have saved it then go back to controller settings, then uncheck valet mode and click
save it should exit Valet Mode.
Placement and Use of Components
IMPORTANT: The placement and use of components are critical to the performance of this system.
Antenna and Cable
Firstech antennas are calibrated for horizontal installation at the top of the windshield. The cable that
connects the antenna to the control module must be free from any pinches or kinks. Installing the antenna in
areas other than the windshield may adversely affect the effective transmitting distance of the remotes.
RPS Touch and RPS (Remote Paging Sensor)
The RPS is an optional feature. The car call/RPS feature uses a small sensor that is mounted on the inside of
your windshield.
1. RPS Touch (Remote Paging Sensor)
The new RPS touch has multiple features including: remote paging, 4 digit pin unlock/disarm, and arm/
lock. All features are operated with a simple touch of the sensor. Note: check feature 3-16 to
make sure it is set to RPS touch setting. (default to RPS touch)

FT-EZGO Setup
The FT-EZGO from Firstech will unlock/disarm the vehicle when in range. It is capable of proximity lock/arm
and unlock/disarm when in or out of range off the vehicle. There is a manual override button located on
the back of the EZ-GO remote. It will lock/arm, unlock/disarm by press and releasing the button for ½ of
a second (0.5 seconds). It will also trigger the trunk release output by press and releasing the button for ½
second (0.5 seconds) then holding for 2.5 seconds.
Installing The FT-EZGO
STEP 1: Set Option 1-14 to Setting 2, 3 or 4
STEP 2: Connect included Blue 6 Pin (With Ground Wire) to Black 6 Pin to control module. If connecting
to a 4 Pin to 4 Pin antenna, use the included 6 Pin to 4 Pin adapter.
STEP 3: Connect the ground wire from the included 6 Pin to 6 Pin cable to vehicle’s ground. Warning:
Failure to connect this wire WILL result in damage to your FT-EZGO antenna (ANTRFID).
STEP 4: If you are using an additional RF kit the antenna cable will connect to the blue 6 pin connector
on the EZ-GO antenna either directly or using the 6 to 4 pin adapter harness included with the
EZ-GO kit.
STEP 5: Find a spot to mount your ANT-RFID on the windshield. This is recommended for optimum
range. For more specific mounting location information visit us at techfeed.compustar.com
under the Authorized Tech section document titled: “FT-EZGO Recommended Mounting
Locations.”
STEP 6: Program your EZ100-R using the standard remote programming procedure along with any
additional RF Kit remotes to the control module (Maximum 4 Remotes including EZ100-R). You
are now ready to test your FT-EZGO system.
Testing The FT-EZGO
STEP 1: Turn the proximity lock/unlock feature on by holding the button on the EZ100-R for 8-10
seconds. You will get one parking light flash and/or siren chirp. To deactivate the proximity

STEP 2: Proximity locking/unlocking-The main control module will monitor all of the zone inputs that are
connected analog or data. In order for the proximity Lock/arm function to work all zones must
be closed and ignition off. Once the EZGO remote leaves the proximity of the antenna it will
lock/arm within 15 seconds.
a. the proximity unlock feature will unlock the doors as soon as its within proximity of the
EZGO antenna once the system has proximity locked.
STEP 3: Proximity unlock- Once the system is locked/armed using a remote, Drone, arm/lock input,
RPS, or passive locking feature, allow 15 seconds for the EZGO remote to unlock/disarm the
system once its within proximity of the EZGO antenna. I.e. Arm the system wait 15 seconds walk
up to the vehicle and it will automatically unlock/disarm.
Siren
We include the standard 6 tone mini siren with every remote start security (AS) kit. We also offer 2 additional
siren options 1. Mini Piezo (pain generator) 2. Battery backup siren with key. We have a variety of siren feature options including length of output time, chirp output timing (i.e. when locking, unlocking, or starting) so
please make sure to set features 3-02 and 3-09 to desired options.
Thermister (Temperature Sensor)
Every 2 Way LCD Firstech RF kit includes an optional thermister, which must be plugged into the blue 2 pin
port of the CM7 in order to use properly. The use of the thermister allows the 2 Way LCD remote to display
the vehicle’s interior temperature on screen or the status page of your Drone mobile phone App. (only
when premium service is active). The thermistor will also allow for the vehicle to start with timed hot or Cold
starting; see features 2-05, 2-07 and 2-08 for the different options. IMPORTANT: The 2 pin connector on
the end of the thermister may be white or blue.
Hood Pin
The hood pin switch triggers the alarm in the event the hood is opened while the alarm is armed. The hood
pin doubles as an important safety feature that prevents the remote start from engaging while the hood is
open.
Common Procedures
Jumper Settings
Caution: Jumper settings affect the polarity and use of certain outputs. If these jumpers are used incorrectly,
damage to the vehicle and /or control module may occur.
Jumper 1 (Door Trigger Polarity)
Determines the polarity of the door trigger input wire (red/white). In the default position the door trigger
registers negative (-) triggers. To change to a positive (+) trigger, move the jumper.

Starter System
CM7200 Master Guide
techfeed.compustar.com
Jumper 2 (2nd Ignition / 2nd Starter / 2nd Parking light)
Jumper 2 sets the behavior of the large blue wire on Connector 1. This wire is powered by an internal relay
in the control module. In the default position the jumper is set to 2nd Ignition. 2nd Ignition is common on
GM and Toyota vehicles and will need to be powered. You can change the behavior of the wire to act as a
2nd Starter or 2nd Parking light to power up those wires common on newer Toyotas and Nissans.
Jumper 3 (Parking Light, 2nd Starter, or (+) Trunk Release)
Determines the output (not polarity) of the green/white wire on connector one (CN1). In the default position
it provides a positive (+) parking light output. Additional jumper settings (including Positive (+) 2nd Starter,
or positive (+) trunk output) can be selected by moving the jumper positions.
Jumper 4 (Accessory, 2nd Ignition, 2nd Starter)
This Jumper offers additional high current output options using the default Accessory wire on connector one
(CN1 white wire). When selected, this wire provides additional positive (+) Ignition or Starter output instead
of Accessory.
Setting Auxiliary Outputs on Connector 2
You Must Have the OP500 Option Programmer
Setting auxiliary outputs on the control module involves the Programmable Output Connector wires (POCs).
Choose two odd pin wires that you are not using on the grey 20 pin connector. For example we will use
POC 7 and 8.
STEP 1: Plug in OP500 and use the Right or Left Arrow Button to scroll through the menu to POC 7 and
POC 8 on LCD Line 1.
STEP 2: Use the Up or Down Arrow Button to change the lower number on LCD Line 2 to 10 – Auxiliary
1 or 11- Auxiliary 2.
STEP 3: Scroll up the menu to Option 4-01 and 4-02 and set the options. Please see the Option Table
for details.
STEP 4: Our control modules have a secure auxiliary option 4-05. This requires you to tap the Start
Button before you tap the Trunk Button for Aux 1 or Hold Trunk + Start for 2.5 an then tap
Trunk for Aux 2. On 1-Way remotes you must hold the Trunk and Start Buttons for 2.5 seconds
then tap the Trunk Button for Aux 1 or the Start Button for Aux 2.
STEP 5: If you need to change the time settings of the outputs, scroll down to AU1 or AU2 on the
OP500. LCD Line 2 is the timed output. Note: with an OP500 update (techfeed.
compustar.com) you will now be able to allow for timed AUX outputs of up to
15 minutes.
STEP 6: Hold the “W” Write button for 3 seconds to set all the options.

Tach Sensing
The default engine sensing mode is tach. In cold weather climates we recommend using an injector wire
verses a computer “data” signal, or a coil wire for tachometer sense. IMPORTANT: The remotes must be
coded prior to programming tach. Firstech recommends using a digital multimeter when testing for tach.
STEP 1: Start the vehicle with the key. Allow time for the engine to idle down. (If you do not want to wait
for the vehicle to idle down, you can shift the vehicle into reverse while holding your foot on the
brake.)
STEP 2: Test wire and make connection. At idle, the tach wire should test between 1 to 4 Volts AC.
As the vehicle RPM’s increase the voltage on the meter will also increase. Always make a wire
to wire connection for tach.
STEP 3: Learn tach: Start the vehicle, hold

confirm a good tach signal. If
the parking lights flash 2 times
and the sirens chirps twice, this
indicates the tach did not learn. A few seconds after the 2 flashes, the CM7 will flash parking
lights to indicate the tach learn error.
Alternator Sensing
Alternator sensing is another method the remote start can utilize to determine if the engine is running. This is
different than the tachless mode and a wire to wire connection must be made. IMPORTANT: The remotes
must be coded prior to setting up alternator sensing.
STEP 1: Change Option 2-10 to setting 2 - Alternator sensing.
STEP 2: Test wire and make connection. The stator wire is found at the vehicle’s alternator. Change your
multimeter to DC voltage before testing for this wire.
A. At rest, with the ignition off, the stator wire should test 0V DC.
B. Turn the ignition to the run position. The stator wire should now test between 4 – 6V DC.
C. Start the vehicle with the key. The stator wire should now test between 12 – 14V DC at idle.
STEP 3: Process complete – no further programming is required.
Tachless Mode – (Automatic Transmission Vehicles Only)
Tachless sensing is an alternative engine sensing mode. It does not require a connection to the vehicle other
than the main ignition harness. Note: due to the delayed peak charging found with most late
model computer controlled alternators, this feature may not be reliable.

STEP 1: Change Option 2-10 to setting 3 – Tachless Mode.
STEP 2: Process complete – there is no further programming required other than adjusting crank time
when necessary (see below).
Adjusting Crank Time: To adjust minimum crank times, refer to Option 2-12. To help ensure successful
starting, the system will automatically add additional crank time to the 2nd and 3rd start attempts. In
addition, there is a built in “Smart Resting Mode”. Traditional tach sensing is still highly recommended
for colder climates.
Timed Crank Setting – Automatic Transmissions Only
Option 2-10 setting 4 provides a timed 3 second crank for the remote start sequence. This option just
cranks the vehicle for 3 seconds and assumes remote start has completed. This option can be used for
GM and other vehicles with built in anti-grind systems.
Advanced Tachless
Advanced Tachless is a no connection feature (2-11 option 2) that can be used as a more reliable
“tachless” or no wire connection option. In order for this feature work the no connection “voltage sense”
feature (2-10 option 3) must be selected and no tach signal input on the main control module should be
present.
Assumed Timed Crank
Assumed Time Crank is the last feature of Option 2-10 for remote starting. This is intended for vehicles with
built-in anti-grind feature or vehicles that do not have a 12V Positive starter wire at the ignition harness. This
option will send a 3.0 second crank signal to the vehicle. This option can be used on vehicles with built in
anti-grind systems or Push To Start (PTS) systems.
Green/White Loop
This loop wire determines the transmission setting. The default position (uncut loop) is for manual
transmissions. When the loop is cut, the system will be ready for automatic transmissions. In the default
(manual transmission) mode, the system must be set up in Reservation mode prior to the vehicle being able
to remote start. IMPORTANT: All warranties or claims are void if a controller with a cut loop is installed on
a vehicle with a manual transmission.
Reservation Mode for Manual Transmissions
To remote start a manual transmission vehicle, the system must first be set up in reservation mode.
Reservation mode is designed to prevent the vehicle from remote starting while the transmission is in gear.
Installation Requirements
1. FT-DAS (Digital Adjustable Sensor) must be connected.
2. The vehicle’s door triggers must be connected to the control module. Prior to making final
connections, test the factory door triggers to ensure that they are functioning properly.

3. The vehicle’s emergency/parking brake wire must be connected to the control module. The proper
vehicle wire usually provides a negative (-) trigger while the emergency / parking brake is set.
4. The vehicle’s clutch must be temporarily bypassed ONLY when the remote start cranks the engine.
This bypass simulates the clutch being depressed. For complete details on how to wire a momentary
clutch bypass visit techfeed.compustar.com or contact our technical support department by calling 888820-3690.
IMPORTANT: Do not install a remote start in manual transmission vehicles with convertible /
removable tops and in user’s vehicles that leave their windows down. Firstech or their authorized dealers
will not assume any responsibility for improper use or install.
Activating Reservation Mode
STEP 1: Start the vehicle with the key. Place the transmission in neutral, remove pressure from the foot
brake, and set the emergency/parking brake.
STEP 2: Remove the key from the vehicle’s ignition. The vehicles engine should remain running even
after the key has been removed. If the vehicle does not remain running, check the emergency /
parking brake connection and your tach connection.
STEP 3: Exit the vehicle and close the door. The vehicle’s engine should shut off upon closing the door.
If the vehicle’s engine does not shut off, check the door trigger connection or wait for the factory
dome-light to go out. The Firstech system is in reservation mode and the vehicle is ready to
safely remote start.
Additional Notes
Reservation mode will be cancelled if the control module recognizes the vehicle’s door, hood or trunk
opening – or if the alarm is triggered. Each time the end user wants to remote start their manual
transmission vehicle, they must set the control module in reservation mode. Reservation mode settings can
be programmed with Option 1-06.
Version Diagnostics
All the new control modules come with the ability to check which firmware is on the module. This is
accomplished by turning the ignition on. Then with 1 and 2 Way remotes, you must hold Lock and Start
together for 2.5 seconds. Current version starts with 1 flash.
Blade Cartridge Slot and Connector
CM7000, CM7200, and CM6300 slot gives you the ability to use the Blade-AL and Blade-TB modules from
Firstech and ADS. With these modules you can virtually eliminate all wire connections between your control
module and bypass module. You only need to connect the main ignition harness and needed from the Black
20 pin Blade connector that may be required according to the vehicle specific Blade installation guide.
For more information on how to program and wire the Blade, please visit compustar.idatalink.com for the
specific wiring diagram for that vehicle. Note: the CM7 has a “Blade Eject” dial on the bottom
of the control module that may be turned using a coin or flat tip tool to assist with Blade
removal.

The CM7 Series Blade connector has a locking tab. Non-locking tab blade harnesses will work
but you MUST TAKE CARE TO NOT PLUG THE HARNESS IN UPSIDE DOWN. Make sure the two
notches on the top of the harness face the top (CM and barcode sticker side) of the brain. When looking at
the wire side of the harness the two notches must be at the top of the plug.
Blade system includes:
1. Blade-AL or Blade-TB (NOTE: These modules are blank and must be flashed on your computer.)
2. 20 Pin locking wiring harness
3. 3 Pin harness used in some installs
IMPORTANT: Install diagrams are not included and must be downloaded from compustar.idatalink.com
when flashing the Blade you can use the Y-Cable OP500 (gold tag) end and not CM4 Series (silver tag)
end. ADS and Firstech recommends using the 4 pin RS232 cable to avoid confusion. Cartridge must be
removed to if the CM7 is being updated with a Firstech updater program from techfeed.compustar.com
WARNING: Manufacturer or seller assumes no responsibility for any injuries and/or damages caused by
improper care of the product such as decomposition, conversion, and transform done by a user voluntarily.

1-06 Reservation Lock: Optional manual transmission reservation mode procedures.
FO1 - Locks before set: (default) this option will lock the doors before the vehicle engine shuts
down to complete reservation mode. This procedure is much safer ensuring that the vehicle cannot be
shifted into gear after the engine shuts down and before or during the door locking procedure.
Note: this procedure is NOT recommended for Push To Start vehicles (PTS)
FO2 - Activate reservation mode using RF remote: This procedure is designed to give the
user more control over when reservation mode is initiated. (Default is any time the e-brake
is set reservation mode will engage). Once the e-brake is set the user must hold the start button on the
remote for 2.5 seconds before reservation mode will engage. Once engaged, reservation mode will
operate normally. Note: this procedure is strongly recommended for manual
transmission Push To Start (PTS) vehicles.
FO3 - Reservation sets 10 seconds after last zone is closed: This option will allow the user
to open any zone (that is connected to the CM7) within 10 seconds and extend the reservation mode
procedure time until 10 seconds after all zones are closed. If the user wishes to complete reservation
mode before the 10 second window is up they can arm or lock the CM7 using any means available.
Note: this procedure is NOT recommended for Push To Start vehicles (PTS)
Note: this is the only reservation mode option that will allow the user to complete
reservation mode using the arm/lock command. All other options will cancel
reservation mode with the arm/lock command.

FO1 - Off (default): No EZGO functions are enabled by default.
FO2 - FTX EZGO “always unlock”: This option will enable the EZGO proximity unlock feature
after activating with the EZ100-R remote. (Refer to the EZGO section of this manual for specific
operating instructions) The CM7 will always send the unlock/disarm output when the EZ100-R enters
the proximity field regardless of the current state of the CM7. (i.e. armed/locked-disarmed/unlocked).
Once the EZ100-R leaves the proximity field, it will be set to send the unlock/disarm output as soon
as it re-enters. Note: because the EZGO antenna is always searching for the EZ100-R, it
will produce more current draw than the standard EZGO unlock option 3.
FO3 - EZGO “unlock only”: (The CM7 must be in an armed state for this option)
This option will enable the EZGO proximity unlock/disarm feature after activating with the EZ100-R
remote. (Refer to the EZGO section of this manual for specific operating instructions). The CM7 will
be ready to send the disarm/unlock command 12-15 seconds after the system has been armed using
a Firstech remote or accessory (RPS, Drone, OEM remote input). Once the EZGO system is ready and
the remote enters the proximity field, it will unlock/disarm.
FO4 - EZGO lock and unlock: This option will enable the EZGO proximity lock/arm and unlock/
disarm features once it’s activated using the remote. (Refer to the EZGO section of this manual for
specific operation instructions.) The EZGO will arm/lock approx. 12-15 seconds after the RFID remote
leaves proximity of the EZ-GO antenna and all zones being monitored (including any key sense or
ignition inputs) are closed or off. As soon as the CM7 is armed/locked the proximity unlock is active
and will unlock/disarm as the EZGO remote enters the proximity field. Note: because the EZGO
antenna is always searching for the EZ100-R, it will produce more current draw than
the standard EZGO unlock option 3.
1-15 Trunk Output Timing: This feature determines the length of output time for the (+) or (-) analog trunk
release wire.

2-03 Diesel Timer: Note: OP500 required to adjust time from any of the default settings,
will show up as DISL on the top line of text when option 2 or 3 are enabled. This feature
provides a timed alternative solution to a hard wired glow plug input to enable the CM7 to wait to
start.
FO1 - Wire: (default) This option will allow the CM7 to read input on brown/white wire. (PIC3) It
may be connected to a wait to start indicator on a diesel vehicle. When the CM7 sees (-) negative
input, it will delay the crank output for 99 seconds or until negative signal has been removed.
FO2 - Program (3-99 seconds): default setting is 12 seconds. This option allows the installer to
adjust the time in 1 second increments that the CM7 waits before cranking the starter.
FO3 - 7 seconds: This option offers a fixed 7 second delay before providing starter output.
FO4 - GM Ignition delay: This option is designed to delay the ignition output 250mS during the
remote start procedure. This allows for the accessory to output first, then ignition, to simulate normal
key starting. There are some vehicle models that may require this additional delay in order for it to
remote start properly.

start the car at the preset Cold and Hot temperature (see features 2-08 and 2-09) according to the
selected timer start option (see feature 2-06)
2-06 Timer Start: This feature is designed to allow the user to have the CM7 automatically remote start
at the end of a selected timed cycle. It also be controlled by the thermister so it will start at a specified
temperature at the end of the timed cycle.
FO1 - 3 hour cycle: (4 minute runtime, 8 minute runtime for diesel) Once Timer Mode is enabled
(see feature 2-13) the CM7 will wait 3 hours, remote start and run for 4 minutes unless the cold start
feature is enabled. If this is the case, the CM7 will check the temperature once every 3 hours. If it is
at or below the selected temperature, (see feature 2-08) it will start and run for 4 minutes. The same
procedure will apply to the hot start feature. If there is any interaction with the CM7 after timer mode
has been activated using the Firstech remote or accessory, timer mode will be cancelled and must be
re-started in order to start a new timed cycle.
FO2 - 2 hour repeat with cold starting: (runtime based on feature 2-07 option setting and
cold start setting based on feature 2-08) Note: 2 way LCD remote required. This option is designed

2-10 Engine Sensing: This feature provides 4 options for engine sensing methods. Every CM7 is shipped in
manual transmission mode. Tach sensing is our default engine sense option.
FO1 - Tach: This option uses a hard wired input (yellow/black CN4 gray connector) to read the
vehicles RPM’s in order to release the starter during the remote start process and determine that the
engine is running.
FO2 - Alternator: This option uses the hardwired tach input (yellow/black CN4 gray connector) to
read the voltage output from the vehicles stator wire in order to release the starter during the remote
start process and determine that the engine is running. Note: with late model computer controlled
alternators, the peak charging voltage mat not be reached for several seconds after the vehicle is
running. This may make this option inconsistent when the battery is low or very cold.
FO3 - No connection Tachless sensing: (aka “voltage sensing”) Note: can only be used with
automatic transmission. This option uses the voltage readings on the power input at the main CN1
connector to monitor the voltage before, during, and after crank, to determine when to release the
starter and consider the vehicle running. Note: with late model computer controlled alternators, the
peak charging voltage mat not be reached for several seconds after the vehicle is running. This may
make this option inconsistent when the battery is low or very cold.
FO4 - No connection Assumed running: (aka engine sense off) Note: can only be used with
automatic transmission. This option provides a 3 second starter output, leave the rest of the CM7
ignition and accessory outputs on and consider the vehicle running. Note: This is a good option for
(PTS) Push To Start applications and Hybrid vehicles (except manual transmission).
2-11 Advanced Tachless: This feature when used in conjunction with feature 2-10 option 3 will provide an
enhanced Tachless engine sensing mode.
FO1 - Off: (default)
FO2 - On: this option will enable the advanced algorithm to monitor battery voltage before, during,
and after crank to allow the CM7 to release the starter and consider the vehicle running. This option
is better suited for late model computer controlled vehicles or older, and poor battery conditions Note:
feature 2-10 must be set to option 3 in order for it to work properly. If there is tach signal input to the
CM7 either analog or data interface module, this option will not operate consistently.
2-12 Crank Time: This feature allows the user to add or remove crank time to the selected option for feature
2-10 (engine sense).
FO1 - Standard: (default crank time no change).
FO2 - +200mS: To standard crank time of option selected on feature 2-10.
FO3 - +600mS: Adds 600 milliseconds to standard crank time of option selected on feature 2-10.
FO4 - (-)200mS: releases the starter output 200 Milliseconds earlier than standard crank time of
option selected on feature 2-10.
2-13 Timer Mode: (Note: Must be set to on in order to operate timer mode).This feature enables the user to
activate and deactivate Timer Mode (see option 2-06) using the Firstech remote or accessory (see the user
manual for that remote for instructions).

Option Programming
How to Program Options
There are two ways to set options on the CM7 control modules. You can use the FT-OP500-KIT or most
Firstech remotes. The remotes include 4 or 5 button 1 and 2 Way remotes.
Option Programming Using the FT-OP500-KIT
The OP500 can be used to change anything in the Option Tables. It is required to change settings in Special
Option Groups 1 and 2.
STEP 1: Make sure system is unlocked/disarmed. Connect the antenna cable to the 4 or
6 pin port on the top of the OP500. Once connected, the OP500 will power up as long as
CN1 or CN3 on the control module is connected properly.
STEP 2: Use the left or right arrow keys on the OP500 to select option. Use the up or down arrow
buttons to select the option setting. “1” is the default setting, “2”, “3”, and “4” are the
optional settings.
Special Option Group 1: Change the timed output of the Diesel Timer or Auxiliaries 1
through 7.
Special Option Group 2: Change the Programmable Output Connections on the grey 20
pin harness.
STEP 3: Hold the “W” (Write) button for 3 seconds. This finalize option changes to the control
module. Wait until OP500 displays “Success” before disconnecting.
To reset the options, hold the “R” (Reset) button and “W” (Write) buttons for 3 seconds. Then
hold the “W” button for 3 seconds.
Option Programming Using a Remote
Using a remote is a timed process so review this section before beginning. Options cannot be programmed
with 1 button remotes. IMPORTANT: Special Option Groups cannot be programmed with remotes –
OP500 must be used.
STEP 1: Select the option you wish to program. Use the correct remote table below:

Frequently Asked Questions
I have everything hooked up and the system will not respond.
A: The remotes need to be programmed. Review the “Common Procedure” section of this manual.
When remote starting, the siren chirps 3 times and parking lights flash 3 then 1 time.
A: You must program tach before remote starting. Also be sure to check the foot brake and ignition wires on
the CM7000 and CM7200.
I am trying to program the control module with the OP500 Option Programmer and it flashes
“ER 01” when I plug it in to the antenna cable. What should I do?
A: Make sure that the system is not locked/armed. The last thing to check is the antenna cable or antenna
extension cable – make sure this is not damaged. If you need to, try another cable. When the OP500
is working properly, it will read “success good.” You no longer need to program the remotes before the
OP500 will sync.
What is the green/white wire loop inside the brain module?
A: This wire determines the transmission mode. With the loop intact, the system is set for manual
transmissions. With the loop cut, the system is set for automatic transmission.
What do I do with the thick blue wire on Connector 1?
A: It is used to power a (+) 2nd Ignition. You can also change the output via jumper within the control module. It can
be changed to power a (+) 2nd Accessory or (+) Parking light wire.

I need a ground when armed wire, does the control module have one?
A: You can use pin 1-blue/white wire on the Grey Connector 5. You must cut this wire and place a diode in
line so that when the ignition on the other side of the relay goes to ground and it doesn’t back feed to your
accessory. Install the stripe side of the diode facing the control module.
What do I do with the 6 Pin harness on Connector 3?
A: The 6 Pin harness on Connector 3 is used for low current ignition harnesses. DO NOT use this harness
with the Connector 1 Harness (the high current power harness) this is ONLY to be used in LOW current
applications where High current is not needed for any reason.
Does the CM7 series have tachless mode?
A: Yes. The CM7000 and CM7200 are tachless. For details, review the “Common Procedures” section of
this manual.
All my connections are made and remotes programmed, how do I program the tach?
A: Review the “Common Procedures” section of this manual. You must have your remotes programmed,
start your vehicle, then hold the remote start button. Vehicle should chirp and/or flash once if it programs,
three times if it does not like the tach source.
The vehicle will lock and unlock, but will not remote start or flash the parking lights.
A: The system is in Valet Mode. Tap buttons (I) + (III) for a half second to exit Valet Mode.
Whenever I try to arm the vehicle, it chirps the siren 3 times and will not arm.
A: Check the hood and trunk trigger inputs.
When I turn the ignition on the parking lights flash 3 times and/or siren chirps 3 times. What is
the problem?
A: When you program only 1 Way remotes to a 2 Way antenna and no 2 Way remotes the control module
reminds you of this situation each time you turn the ignition on. It does not affect the operation of the system
but will continue to do so until you program both 2 and 1 Way remotes to the 2 Way antenna.
Do the door locks flip flop in polarity?
A: No. You can use the FT-DM700 relay pack for high current positive (+) locks, or the FT-DM600 harness
used for low current 600mA positive (+) locks.
What are Firmware Version Diagnostics?
A: When you turn the Ignition on and hold buttons 1 and 4 or Lock and Key/Start for 2.5 seconds then the
parking lights will flash 1 time on the CM6 series showing V.1.

What is this cartridge slot on the CM7000, CM7200, and CM6300?
A: This is the slot for the Blade cartridge system. This slot is for the Idatalink Blade remote start bypass
modules. For more information on the compatibility and install information please visit compustar.idatalink.
com. Using this system eliminates many connections between your standard control module and bypass
module. IMPORTANT: If you are not using the Blade then you will not have or use the black 20 pin
connector on the control module.
How do I take the system out of Valet Mode with a 1 Button Remote?
A: Turn the ignition on and tap the foot brake 10 times within 10 seconds.
Why are the ignition controlled doorlocks option not working?
A. Check option 1-09. It should be set on 2 or 3. The option has to also be turn on via the remote. On 2
Way LCD remotes tap the Lock and Start Buttons for a half second, the parking lights will flash once to show
the option is turned on. On 1 Way remotes tap the Lock and Start buttons for a half second.
The vehicle remote starts when disarmed, but not when armed.
A: The starter kill relay was installed backwards. Check to make sure the yellow/black wire is going to the
ignition side of the wire, and that the yellow wire is going to the engine side.
The vehicle starts and shuts down 3 times in a row.
A: This usually means that the engine sensing mode is not working correctly. If you are using a coil, change
to an injector or try alternator sense mode.
On the brain, how do I set the auxiliaries?
A: You must have an Option Programmer (FT-OP500-KIT) to set the auxiliaries on the CM4000, CM4200DX, CM4300, CM5000, CM5200, CM6000, CM6200, CM6300, CM7000 and CM7200. First choose
two POC wires on CN5 that you are not using. With the OP500 go into the Special Option Group 2 and
set those POC’s to Aux 1 and Aux 2. Review the “Special Option Group” programming section of this
manual. On the CM7 Series control modules, Auxiliary 1 is pre programmed on CN5, Pin 3, White Wire.
