The PRO 9845B Keyless Entry System is designed to provide a convenient electronic means to gain access to the
vehicle by providing RF remote control over the vehicle's power door lock system. The unit also includes outputs
to control the vehicle's dome lights, as well as exterior parking lights. Although not an alarm system, the UNIT also
includes a starter interrupt circuit output. It also includes two additional auxiliary outputs designed to allow for
control over optional devices such as a power trunk release or engine starting device.
BEFORE BEGINNING THE INSTALLATION:
1) Control Module
Dash Mounted LED
Valet / Manual Override Switch
2) Determine the type of factory power door lock system in use. Knowing the type of system before
beginning the installation can make the installation easier and faster since you can build whatever interface
(if needed) beforehand.
3) Determine whether the vehicle includes a power trunk release system and if so what type it is.
INSTALLATION OF COMPONENTS:
CONTROL MODULE:
The Control Module is NOT waterproof, DO NOT mount it in the Engine Compartment. Select a mounting location
under the dashboard. Choose a mounting location that will not interfere with proper operation of the vehicle's
steering column mechanism and brake and gas pedals. Secure the Control Module in the chosen location. Wait
until all components have been installed and all connections made before plugging in the main connectors.
DASH MOUNTED LED:
The small Red LED included in the kit serves as a visual indicator of the system's status and provides a visual
deterrent to a potential thief. The LED also provides important feed back information during the transmitter and
feature program modes. The LED should be installed in the dashboard in a highly visible area that may be seen
from the driver’s seat as well as from outside the vehicle. Try to choose a location close enough to the Control
Module so that the LED's wires will reach. Carefully inspect the area behind your chosen location to insure that the
drill will not penetrate any existing factory wiring or fluid lines. Drill a 1/4" hole and pass the connector end of the
LED through the hole, and route the wires toward the location of the Control Module. Press the LED firmly into
place until it is fully seated.
VALET / MANUAL OVERRIDE SWITCH :
Since much of the use of this switch by the vehicle operator requires concurrent operation of the ignition key
switch, it is recommended that the Valet / Manual Override Switch be placed such that it can be reached by the
driver's left hand, while they operate the ignition key switch with their right hand. The switch can be mounted to the
lower dash panel in the drivers area. Inspect behind the chosen location to insure that adequate clearance is
allowed for the body of the switch and also that the drill will not penetrate any existing factory wiring or fluid lines.
Drill a 1/4" hole in the desired location and mount the switch by passing it through the panel from the opposite
side. Secure the switch using the nut, star washer, and on/off face plate. It is suggested that the switch be
oriented to allow the on position to be up toward the driver and the off position to be down or away from the driver.
Route the switch’s wires and connector toward the location of the Control Module.
RED Wire (Connects to RED/WHITE wire at harness plug): Main 12 Volt Input Wire
These are the main power input wires for the system. Both wires connect to a separate fuseholder contained in
the harness. These fuseholders each hold a separate ATC fuse, one 5AMP and one 10AMP. This RED wire must
be connected to a constant power wire at the vehicle's ignition switch harness or fusebox.
Locate a constant power wire at the vehicle's ignition switch harness. This wire will read +12VDC at all times,
regardless of the position of the ignition key switch. Attach the RED wire of the harness to this point by splicing and
taping the connection.
YELLOW Wire: Ignition Input Wire
This wire provides the system with an ignition power input from the vehicle. Connect this wire to the Ignition wire
(primary ignition wire) from the ignition switch. This vehicle wire will show +12VDC when the ignition key is turned
to the "ON" or "RUN" position and when turned to the "START" or CRANK" positions and will have 0VDC when the
key is turned to the "OFF" and "ACCESSORY" positions.
Locate an ignition power wire at the vehicle's ignition switch harness. By splicing and taping the connection, attach
the YELLOW wire of the system to this point.
WHITE Wire: Positive Parking Light Flash Wire
This wire is designed to output a +12VDC positive light flash output, driven by the unit's internal relay, to be
connected directly to the vehicle's positive parking light circuit. Once the wire is located, confirm that all the
vehicle's parking lights will illuminate when +12VDC is connected to it.

NOTE: Some vehicles, (mostly European) have isolated "left" and "right" side parking lights. To connect to the
parking light systems in these vehicles, you must use a separate SPDT relays to connect to each side in
order to keep them isolated. Attach the WHITE wire of the system to this point.
BROWN Wire: Negative (-) Door Trigger Input Wire
If the vehicle's interior lights are controlled by grounding door pinswitches (typical of most GM, Chrysler, and
import vehicles), the Brown negative door trigger wire should connect to one of the vehicle's factory door pin
switches. In many cases the factory door pinswitches are wired in parallel, making it necessary to connect to only
one door switch in order to detect the opening of all doors. In a few cases this will not be true, making it necessary
to connect to the vehicle domelight, which typically is the intersection point of all doors.
Locate the vehicle's negative door trigger wire in the vehicle's kickpanel or underdash. Connect the BROWN
wire of the system to this point.
PURPLE Wire: Positive (+) Door Trigger Input Wire
If the vehicle's interior lights are controlled by +12VDC (Positive) door pinswitches (typical of most Ford vehicles),
the Purple positive door trigger wire should connect to one of the vehicle's factory door pin switches. In many
cases the factory door pinswitches are wired in parallel, making it necessary to connect to only one door switch in
order to detect the opening of all doors. In a few cases this will not be true, making it necessary to connect to the
vehicle domelight, which typically is the intersection point of all doors.
Locate the vehicle's positive door trigger wire in the vehicle's kickpanel or underdash. Using the appropriate
connector, attach the PURPLE wire of the system to this point.
BLACK Wire: Main System Ground
This is one of the most important wires of the installation. It must be connected properly to a solid chassis ground.
Special care must be taken to locate a clean metal part of the chassis as an attachment point for this wire. Some
installers prefer to locate a sturdy metal bolt under the dashboard or at the kickpanel and use it as the attachment
point.
If you find a suitable factory bolt that reads ground when tested, attach a ring terminal connector to the Black wire,
remove the bolt, place the ring terminal over the bolt and reinstall it, tightening it securely. If you choose instead to
drill your own mounting hole into the vehicle's chassis, be certain to remove any paint or grease and secure the
ring terminal using the self tapping screw and star washer provided.
BLACK/WHITE Wire: Horn/Siren Output Wire
This wire provides a ground output (300 mA Max.) designed to drive a relay, which in turn can drive either the
vehicle's horn or an optional electronic siren. Depending upon which sounding device you decide to drive, the
Black/White output wire must first be programmed to control either the Horn or the Siren. The factory default
setting is for the wire to control the horn. Please refer to the section titled; "Programming System Features" later
on in this manual for the programming procedure.
To connect this output to drive a vehicle horn, locate the vehicle's horn wire, almost always a negative switched
wire, (typically found among the wires of the steering column) and connect it.
BLACK/WHITE Wire: Horn/Siren Output Wire
To connect this output to drive an optional siren, the output wire must be programmed for siren output. Please
refer to the section titled; "Programming System Features" later on in this manual for the programming
procedure.
Find a suitable mounting location for the siren and mount it properly. Run the siren's positive wire into the
passenger compartment to the location of the CONTROL MODULE , and connect it.
GREEN/WHITE: Dome Light Supervision Output Wire
This wire provides a 30 second ground output (300 mA Max.) whenever the remote is used to unlock the doors
with the REMOTE. This allows for the illumination of the vehicle's interior before entry. It also provides a flashing
output that duplicates the parking light output flash rate whenever the "Panic Mode" is engaged. This wire must
be connected to an external relay, and wired to the vehicle's interior entry lighting whenever the optional Interior
Illumination feature circuit is desired.
DARK BLUE Wire: Delayed 300mA Pulsed, Channel 2 Output
The Dark Blue wire supplies a 300mA ground pulsed output whenever channel three of the receiver is accessed.
Pressing option Button for three seconds will access Channel 2. This is a low current output and must be
connected to a relay to supply power to the trunk release or the circuit you wish to control. Connect the Dark Blue
wire to terminal # 86 of a VF45F11 P&B relay or equivalent. Connect terminal # 85 of the relay to a fused +12VDC
source. Connect the common, normally open and normally closed contacts of the relay to perform the selected
function of Channel 2.

(
GREEN/BLACK Wire: Immediate, 300mA Duration of Transmit, Channel 3 Output
The Green/Black wire supplies a 300mA switched output whenever Channel 3 of the receiver is accessed.
Pressing a combination of transmitter buttons simultaneously will access Channel 3 and will remain active for
as long as the transmitter button(s) is held. This is a low current output and must be connected to a relay to
supply power to the device you intend to control. Connect Green/Black Trace wire to terminal #86 of a VF45F11
P&B relay or equivalent. Connect terminal #85 of the relay to a fused + 12 volt source. Connect the common,
normally open, and normally closed contacts of the relay to perform the selected function of the Channel 3 output.
ORANGE Wire: Ground When Armed Output
This wire provides a 300mA ground output when the keyless entry is locked to control the optional starter inhibit
relay. Connect the Orange wire to terminal #86 of a standard SPDT relay. Connect terminal #85 of the relay to an
ignition wire in the vehicle that is +12VDC when the ignition key is turned to the on and start positions and off when
the key is in the off position. Locate and cut the low current starter solenoid wire found at the vehicle's ignition
switch harness. This wire will have +12VDC when the ignition key is moved to the start (crank) position and will
have 0 volts in all other key positions. Connect one side of the cut wire to terminal #87a of the relay. Connect the
other side of the cut wire to terminal #30 of the relay.
DOOR LOCK/UNLOCK CONTROL HARNESS
3PIN White Plug w/3 Wires; RED, GREEN, &RED/BLACK
The Red and Green Door Lock/Unlock output wires provide either a momentary pulsed ground (-) or a momentary pulsed +12VDC (+) output for controlling a vehicle's power door lock/unlock circuit. To better understand this,
refer to the table below:
Function
Polarity
Red
Lock
Red
Unlock
Green

The output of these wires has a maximum switching capability of 300mA. Many vehicles today have factory door
lock relays which can be connected directly to these outputs, however always confirm that the factory relays in
your particular vehicle do not exceed the rated 300mA output of the units door lock/unlock circuit. Plug the three
pin connector of the door lock/unlock harness into the mating connector shell of the control module. Determine
the door lock circuit of the vehicle you are working on and wire according.
WIRING FOR "GROUND PULSE" DOOR LOCK CIRCUITS:
This is a system commonly used on most import vehicle's factory door lock/unlock systems, and with a few
domestic vehicles which employ factory "keyless entry" systems. In this application, the Red wire serves as the
"Lock" output, providing a ground pulse during the locking sequence and the Green wire serves as the "Unlock"
output, providing a ground pulse during the unlocking sequence. Connect the Red wire to the low current ground
factory door "Lock" signal wire leading from the factory switch to the factory door lock relay. Connect the Green wire to
the low current ground factory door "Unlock" signal wire leading from the factory switch to the factory door unlock relay.
WIRING FOR "POSITIVE PULSE" DOOR LOCK CIRCUITS:
This is a system commonly used on many domestic vehicle's factory door lock/unlock systems, particularly
General Motors and Chrysler, although not on all models. (Please see the note regarding "5-Wire Reverse
Polarity Door Lock Systems"). In this application, the Green wire serves as the "Lock" output, providing a positive
pulse during the locking sequence and the Red wire serves as the "Unlock" output, providing a positive pulse
during the unlocking sequence.
Connect the Green wire to the low current positive (+12VDC) factory door "Lock" signal wire leading from the
factory switch to the factory door lock relay. Connect the Red wire to the low current positive (+12VDC) factory door
"Unlock" signal wire leading from the factory switch to the factory door unlock relay.
Note: For connection to all other types of factory power door lock systems, including the "4 and 5 Wire Reverse
Polarity" systems found on many Ford and Chrysler vehicles, either the optional Power Door Lock Interface
(Model # AS-9159), or the equivalent 30A automotive relays must be used. Contact the Audiovox
Technical Support Department for additional information on the proper wiring of these circuits.
PLUG-IN CONNECTIONS AND COMPLETING THE INSTALLATION:
Now that all the other components have been installed and most of the main connections completed, it is time to
finish connecting the remaining plug-in components and completing the installation. Even though these are plug-in
connections and the plugs have been shaped such that they cannot be plugged in wrong, please read and follow
the instructions for each connection to make certain each component is properly installed.

The connection of the power door lock/unlock wires has already been explained. Route the Red, Green, and Red/
Red/Black wires to the unit and plug the white 3PIN connector into the mating white three pin connector shell of
the control module. Do not force the connector, it will only plug in one way.
PROGRAMMING FEATURES:
There are seven (7) Programmable Features on the system. Study the list below, keeping in mind the features
and their defaults, (how it comes programmed from the factory) and decide how best to program the UNIT for your
particular installation.

To Program These Features:
Entering the Programming Mode involves operating the Ignition Switch and the Valet/Program/Manual Override
Switch in a particular sequence. This sequence is very time dependent, in other words it must be performed
quickly in order for you to enter the mode. This sequence is also only one step different from the Transmitter
Programming Mode, so make certain you perform the sequence properly.
Upon entering the Programming Mode, the system is immediately set to allow adjustment of the First
Programmable Feature. That First feature, "Passive or Active Arming", can then be set ON or OFF by pressing
button 1 of the transmitter. The system confirms that it is set to adjust the First feature by repeatedly flashing the
LED once, with a pause in between each flash. The system will then report how the feature has been set by the
number of chirps heard after pressing the transmitter button. Toggling the Valet/Program/Manual Override Switch
once again will advance you to the Second Programmable Feature, confirmed by a repeating two LED flashes,
with a pause in between each flash, etc., etc.

It is important to note that when you first enter the Programming Mode, you are automatically positioned to adjust
the First Programmable Feature and that the Valet/Program/Manual Override Switch allows you to toggle from
there through each of the six more programmable features. However, it will not allow you to return to any feature
once you have toggled past it. Should you accidentally toggle past the feature you wanted to program, you must
exit and re-enter the Programming Mode and then adjust the feature you missed.
It is also important to note that you may toggle past as many programmable features as you wish without having
to adjust them. Each time you toggle forward to a new feature, the siren will chirp the appropriate number of
times (1, 2, or 3 times) to indicate how that feature is currently set and the LED will flash the appropriate number
of times to indicate the number of the feature (First through Seventh) that you are set to adjust. For example, you
might enter the mode and toggle the Valet/Program/Manual Override Switch 3 times in order to adjust the Fourth
programmable feature. The system would respond with 1 Chirp, and the LED would begin to flash 4 Flashes,
pause and repeat. This has told you that the system is ready for you to adjust the Fourth programmable feature,
and that it is currently programmed for Chirps ON. A single press of button 1 of the transmitter will cause the
system to produce 2 Chirps. This signifies that you have changed the programming to Chirps OFF. Please follow
the programming procedure on the next page and refer to the list of the Programmable Features above when
programming this system.

COMPLETING THE INSTALLATION:
After you have confirmed the operation of the PRO 9845B, and tested any and all optional features of the system:
1. Mount the control module up and behind the dash securing it in place with cable ties or screws. Be certain that
the chosen mounting location will not inhibit any of the controls of the vehicle.
2. Securely harness and tie all wiring up and away from all hot and moving parts that they may come in contact with
under the dash board or in the engine compartment areas.
CAUTION: Particularly avoid the area around the steering shaft and column, as wires can wrap around these
mechanisms and impair the safe operation of the vehicle.
3. Check the vehicle's wipers, lights, horn, etc... to insure proper operation.
4. Replace all panels that were removed during installation, and retest the system.
5. Explain the operation of the system and its various features to the end user if available and place the Owner's
