Adjusting the Sensor
Important! Make sure the vehicle is disarmed. The shock sensor sensitivity can be adjusted by using a trimmer tool to turn the potentiometer.
Adjusting the sensor:
1. Disarm the system, turn the ignition Off.
2. With the sensor mounted in its permanent location, locate the trim pot on the shock sensor module and using a trimmer tool:
• Turn the potentiometer clockwise for increased sensitivity or
• Turn it counterclockwise for decreased sensitivity
Note: You can test the new setting by cautiously impacting the vehicle with increasing intensity while noting the LED status on the shock
sensor. The LED turns on for a short duration for small impacts before turning off (indicating a warn-away trigger). The impact level required
to fully trigger the alarm is indicated when the LED remains on for a longer duration before turning off.
Tachometer settings
Tach Learning
To learn the tach signal:
1. Start the vehicle with the key.
2. Within 5 seconds, press and hold the control center button.
3. After 3 seconds the LED will light constant when the tach signal is learned.
4. Release the control center button.
Important: This unit can learn the tachometer with the analog input or through D2D
using an interface module. The unit confirms which source is used.
When programming tach learning with:
• Analog, the parking lights flash one time.
• D2D interface module, the parking lights flash twice
If the tachometer input on the system is connected to the vehicle, the D2D tachometer input will be ignored.
Virtual Tach
Note: Virtual tach is not recommended for diesel trucks
To program Virtual Tach:
1. After the install is complete, remote start the car.
2. If the car does not start on the first attempt, let the remote start attempt again.
3. Once the car starts, let it run until the parking lights come on.
4. When the parking lights come on, shut off the remote start with the remote - that’s it! Virtual Tach is programmed.
Virtual Tach handles disengaging the starter motor during remote starting – it does not address over-rev. If the customer wants to have the overrev protection capability, the tach wire must be connected. This may involve more installation shop charges than initially quoted.
Important: If the Virtual Tach mode over cranks or doesn't crank the vehicle long enough to start and run the
car, use the Bitwriter to add or subtract the starter output time. You can adjust the output time in increments
of 50msec of the learned time using the Bitwriter.
Programming jumpers
© 2012 Directed. All rights reserved.
7
Tach threshold On/Off
In most cases, this jumper can be left in the Off position. Some new vehicles use less than 12 volts in their ignition systems. The unit may have
trouble learning the tach signal in these vehicles. Changing the jumper to the On setting changes the trigger threshold of the digital tach circuit
so that it will work with these type vehicles.
Light flash (+) / (-) polarity
The jumper is used to determine the light flash output polarity. In the (+) position, the onboard relay is enabled and the unit outputs (+)12V on
the WHITE H1/11 wire. In the (-) position, the on-board relay is disabled. The White H1/11 wire will supply a 200mA (-) output suitable for
driving factory parking light relays.
Note: For parking light circuits that draw 10 amps or more, the internal jumper must be switched to a (-) light flash output. P/N 8617 or a
standard automotive SPDT relay must be used on the H1/11 light flash output harness wire.
Transmitter/receiver Learn Routine™
The system comes with transmitters that have been taught to the receiver. The receiver can store up to 4 different transmitter codes in memory.
Note: When doing any programming with security features off, the horn function (feature menu 1
item 13) must be programmed as Siren function to get an audible confirmation from the unit.
If the learn routines have been programmed using the Bitwriter, they may have been locked. Before proceeding with reprogramming
the learn routines, they must be unlocked with the Bitwriter - this cannot be done manually with the control center button.
Note: The Bitwriter requires software v2.7. Bitwriters with date code of 6A or older require an IC upgrade (p/n 998M). Some Bitwriters with a date code of 6B do not require the IC upgrade, refer to Tech Tip # 1112 for more information.
The control center button, plugged into the blue port, is used for programming. There is a basic sequence to remember whenever programming
this unit: Door, Key, Choose, Transmit and Release.

Transmitter configurations
The transmitters are programmed with the standard configuration by using the Auto Learn functions in the Transmitter/Receiver Learn Routine. For
more information about the remote control functions, see the Owners Guide.
System features learn routine
The System Features Learn Routine dictates how the unit operates. It is possible to access and change any of the feature settings using the control
center button. However, this process can be simplified by using the Bitwriter®. Any of the settings can be changed and then assigned to one of
four remote controls. This feature is called Owner Recognition. Each time that particular remote control is used to disarm the system, the assigned
feature settings will be recalled. Owner Recognition is only possible when programming the unit via the Bitwriter®.
If programming with the Bitwriter®, the learn routine can be locked or unlocked. If the learn routine has previously been locked, it must
be unlocked with Bitwriter® - this cannot be done manually with the control center button .

6. Panic With Ignition On:
1. Panic with ign On: the Panic output can be activated at any time
2. No panic with ign On : the Panic output can be activated only when the ignition is off
7. Door Lock Output Duration
1. 0.8 sec.: the door lock/unlock output pulses will be 800 mS in duration
2. 3.5 sec.: the door lock/unlock pulses will be 3.5 seconds in duration
3. 0.4 sec.: the door lock/unlock pulses will be 400 mS in duration
8. Forced Passive Arming:
1. On: forced passive arming will ensure that the system will passively arm, even if a zone is left open. Forced passive arming occurs one
hour after the ignition is turned off.
2. Off: the system will not passively arm if a zone is left open..
9. Automatic Engine Disable (AED)
1. On: the orange ground-when-armed output will activate 30 seconds after the ignition is turned off. The LED will flash at half its normal
rate when the ignition is turned off to indicate that AED is active and will interrupt the starter in 30 seconds. AED does not occur in Valet
mode and can be bypassed using the emergency override procedure. The transmitter can be used to disarm AED, however, the system
must be armed and then disarmed, using the transmitter, to disarm AED.
2. Off: the orange ground-when-armed output will not activate 30 seconds after the ignition is turned off.
10. Armed While Driving (AWD)
1. On: the system can be armed with the ignition on. When armed, the ground-when armed is not active and the sensors are bypassed.
The door triggers will remain active.
Note: turning off the ignition will disarm the system.
2. Off: the system cannot be armed when the ignition is on..
11. Code Hopping®
• On/Off: The system uses a mathematical formula to change its code each time the transmitter and receiver communicate. This makes
the group of bits or "word" from the transmitter very long. The longer the word is, the easier it is to block its transmission to the unit.
Disabling the Code Hopping® feature lets the receiver ignore the Code Hopping® part of the transmitted word. As a result, the unit
may have better range with Code Hopping® off.
12. Horn Output
1. Pulsed: the horn honk output will be pulsed when the system is triggered.
2. Constant: the horn honk output will be constant when the system is triggered.
13. Horn Function
1. Full Alarm Only: the horn output will pulse only during full trigger events.
2. Siren Function 20/30/40/50 mS: The horn output will emulate the siren output with selectable chirp output timing to compensate for
OEM horn inefficiency.
14. Comfort Closure
1. Comfort Closure On: The door lock pulse (or 2nd pulse for double pulses) will remain on for 20 seconds.
2. Comfort Closure Off: Comfort Closure is defeated when arming.
3. Comfort Closure 2: 800 mS following the end of the door lock pulse (or 2nd pulse for double pulses); the door lock output will turn on
again for 20 seconds.
To test if the car has the comfort closure:
1. Insert the key into the drivers door key cylinder.
2. Turn the key to the lock position and hold for about 10 seconds. Some cars require that you turn the key once, release, and then
turn and hold into the lock position.
If Comfort closure is available, the windows (and in some cars the sunroof) close.
Important: Comfort closure can only be used on cars that have the capability of closing the windows (and on some cars the sunroof as well) with the key cylinder in the door.

Menu 3 - Descriptions
1. Engine Checking Mode
1. Virtual Tach: battery voltage drop/rise during cranking determines when the starter output is released. During runtime, constant voltage
level is monitored to determine if the engine is running
2. Voltage: starter output during cranking is a programmed duration (Set in Cranking Time). During runtime, constant voltage level is
monitored to determine if the engine is running
3. Off: starter output during cranking is a programmed duration (Set in Cranking Time). The remote start will keep the ignition/accessories
active for the programmed runtime whether the engine is running or not
4. Tachometer: tachometer input signal during cranking and runtime to determine when the starter output is released and if the engine is
running.
2. Run Time
• 12/24/60 minutes: sets engine runtime during normal remote start operations
3. Parking Light Output
1. Flashing: the lights will pulse on/off during remote start
2. Constant: the lights will turn on solid during remote start.
4. Cranking Time
• 0.6/0.8/1.0/1.2/1.4/1.6/1.8/2.0/4.0 seconds: determines the starter output duration during cranking for the ‘Voltage’ and the
‘Off’ Engine Checking Mode options
5. Activation Pulse Count
• 1/ 2 pulses: sets the number of remote control commands received or Activation Input required to activate and de-activate remote start
6. 2nd Ignition/Accessory Output:
• This will allow the PINK/WHITE to be used as a 2nd ignition or an accessory. The default is 2nd ignition.
7. Accessory State During Wait-To-Start Off/On:
• This feature will allow the selection of the accessory output to be ON or OFF during wait-to-start.
8. Status 2 Output (Dark Blue H2/10 wire)

Latch rear defogger: the output activates 10 seconds after start if the interior temperature is below 55F. It turns off after 10 minutes or
upon remote start off
Pulse rear defogger: the output activates (for 800mS) 10 seconds after start if the interior temperature is below 55F.
9. Anti-grind Output
• On/Off: With the anti-grind On (default) the ground-when-armed output will be active during remote start operation. If accessories such
as a voice module or window module are added to the unit, it may be necessary to program this feature off..
10. Diesel Start Delay
1. Wait-to-start input: (-) input on the Grey/black (H2/7) WTS wire will delay the starter output until the ground ceases.
2. Timed 15/30/45 seconds: delays the starter output per the selected option, the WTS wire does not function.
11. Run Time (Timer Mode)
• 12, 3, 6, 9 Minutes: Selects the time in minutes that the system will operate the engine until the system "times out". This is the maximum
operation period and the system may be shut down using a shutdown at any time. Using the Bitwriter®, the run time can be programmed for any duration from 1-16 minutes.
12 Timer Mode
• Timed Starts/Temperature Starts: The system will start every 3-hours (a maximum of 6 times) until canceled by the brake, hood, turning
on the ignition, or neutral safety shut-down wires. The temperature start mode will not start the vehicle unless the interior temperature of
the vehicle is less than 0 degrees F. The temperature start mode will exit after 18 hours.
13 Short Run/Turbo
• 1/3/5/10 Minutes: When turbo mode is activated, the engine will run for the duration set per the selected option.

Troubleshooting: Alarm
Shock sensor doesn’t trigger the alarm:
1. Was the onboard shock sensor adjusted before it was mounted? If so re-adjust the sensor.
2. Has the onboard shock sensor been turned off? The sensor has the ability to be turned off when adjusting.
3. Has the NPC® system been triggered? If so, you hear 5 chirps when disarming. To check this, turn the ignition key on and off to
clear the NPC® memory, and then retest the shock sensor. For a detailed description of NPC®, see Nuisance Prevention Circuitry
section of the owners guide.
Door input does not immediately trigger full alarm. Instead, chirps are heard for the first 3 seconds:
• That’s how the progressive two-stage door input works! This is a feature of this system even if the door is instantly closed again, the
progression from chirps to constant siren continues.
Closing the door triggers the system, but opening the door does not:
• Have you correctly identified the type of door switch system? This happens often when the wrong door input has been used.
System does not passively arm until it is remotely armed and then disarmed:
1. Is passive arming programmed ON?
2. Are the door inputs connected? Is the H1/7 blue wire connected to the door trigger wire in the vehicle? Either the H1/8 green or
the H1/6 violet should be used instead.
Door input does not respond with the progressive trigger, but with immediate full alarm:
• Does the Status LED indicate that the trigger was caused by the shock sensor? (See Table of Zones section of this guide.) The shock
sensor, if set to extreme sensitivity, may be detecting the door unlatching before the door switch sends its signal. Reducing the sensitivity can solve this problem.
Door locks operate backwards.
• This unit has easily-reversed lock/unlock outputs. Recheck wire connections to see if you have reversed these.
Troubleshooting: Remote Start
The remote start will not activate the remote start
1. Is the neutral safety switch plugged in and turned on?
2. Is the remote programmed to the system?
3. Can the remote start be activated manually by applying a ground pulse to the H1/10 White/Blue wire?
4. Check the harnesses and their connections. Make sure that the harnesses are completely plugged into the remote start module. Make
sure there are good connections to the vehicle wiring.
5. Check voltage and fuses on the main 12-pin harness and on the heavy gauge remote start harness.
The remote start will activate, but the starter never engages.
1. Check for voltage on the purple starter wire two seconds after the remote start becomes active. If there is voltage present, skip to
Step 5. If there is not voltage present, advance to Step 2.
2. Check the 30A fuses.
3. If the gray/black wait-to-start wire is detecting ground upon activation, the starter will not crank.
4. Is the tach wire connected? If so disconnect it and remote start the vehicle to see if the purple wire sends out voltage. If you get voltage you will need to go to an alternate tach source, the tach wire you are currently on has a voltage spike upon ignition power up
which can cause the remote start to not send out the crank voltage.
5. Is the vehicle a Chrysler or GM with a multiplexed starter wire? The vehicle will not crank if the resistance is incorrect on the multiplexed accessory/starter wire.
6. Is the vehicle a GM? If so the Brown 2nd accessory needs to be powered up on some of the vehicles for the vehicle to crank.
7. Make sure the purple starter wire is connected on the starter side of the optional starter kill/anti-grind relay.
8. Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? Some immobilizer systems will not allow the vehicle to crank if active.
9. Check connections. The heavy gauge remote start input wires on the heavy gauge 10-pin connector should have a solid connection.
“T-taps” or “scotch locks” are not recommended.
The vehicle starts, but immediately dies.
1. Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? The vehicle’s immobilizer can cut the fuel and/or spark during unauthorized starting attempts.
2. Is the remote start programmed for virtual tach or voltage sense? If so, the crank time may not be set high enough. Voltage sense
will not work on some vehicles.
3. Is the remote start in tach mode? If so has the tach been programmed to the system?
4. Check diagnostics. Sometimes a shutdown will become active during cranking or just after cranking.
The vehicle starts, but the starter keeps running.
1. Is the system programmed for engine checking off or virtual tach voltage sense? When programmed for either of these features, the
engine cranks for the pre programmed crank time regardless of how long it takes for the vehicle to actually start. Adjust to a lower

cranking time.
Was the Tach Learn successful? The LED must light solid and bright to indicate a successful learn.
Make sure that there is a tach signal at the purple/white tach input wire of the remote start. If there is not a tach signal, recheck the
connection to the vehicle’s tach wire and make sure the wire is not broken or shorted to ground leading to the remote start.
Is an ignition or accessory output wire connected to the starter wire of the vehicle? Verify the color of the starter wire in the vehicle
and confirm that an ignition or an accessory output is not connected to that wire.
The vehicle starts, but will only run for 10 seconds
1. Is the remote start programmed for voltage sense? If this does not work, a tach wire should be used.
2. Check shutdown diagnostics.
The climate control system does not work while the unit is operating the vehicle.
1. Either the wrong accessory wire is being energized or more than one igni­tion or accessory wire must be energized in order to operate the climate control system.
2. If the vehicle has an electronic climate control system some will reset when the key is turned off and then back on, unfortunately this
is a function of the vehicle and cannot be bypassed.
