Quick Reference
Valet Mode
When servicing or loaning your vehicle to others, the system should be placed in Valet Mode. Valet
Mode prevents the system from remote starting and disables all alarm functions. IMPORTANT: While in
Valet mode the remote will still control power lock and unlock systems. The parking lights will not flash.
The system can be put into valet one of three ways:
1. While holding the foot brake, 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 vehicle’s key to the ignition “on” position, tap the tap the Lock and Trunk butons for a half
second. The parking lights will flash once to confirm valet mode. Repeat this process to exit valet mode.
The parking lights will flash twice confirming valet mode is disabled.
3. 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.
Remote Maintenance
When the battery on your 2 Way remote is low, you will no longer receive 2 Way confirmation in
areas you usually do. Your remote will only send commands to your vehicle. The LED’s on your
2 Way remote will also fade after transmission. The only regular maintenance this system requires is
remote control battery replacement. No programming is required when replacing the battery. If you need
assistance, we recommend contacting your place of purchase.
Two Way Remotes:
Use a quarter or flat head screwdriver to pry open the remote. You can insert the quarter or flat head
screwdriver in the small slot at the bottom of the remote by the keychain loop. Carefully pry off the back
cover without damaging the circuit board. Your battery size should be listed on the sticker on the remote.
(Battery size: 2 x CR2025) IMPORTANT: Be sure to observe correct polarity when installing the battery.
One Way Remotes:
Use a quarter or flat head screwdriver to pry open the remote. You can insert the quarter or flat head
screwdriver in the small slot at the bottom of the remote by the keychain loop. Carefully pry off the back
cover using caution that you do not damage the circuit board. Your battery size should be listed on the
sticker on the remote. Battery size: 2 x CR2025) IMPORTANT: Be sure to observe correct polarity when
installing the battery.

General Features
The remote transmitter functions are predetermined and programmed from the factory. The four button
configuration allows for many functions to be performed through a series of tapping and/or holding
buttons.
Sending Commands
When in range and a command has been sent, the remote will receive a page back and LED
confirmation. For example, to send a remote start command from the 2 Way remote, hold down the
button for 2.5 seconds. The remote will beep once to confirm the command has been sent and that the
remote is in range. Once the vehicle has successfully remote started, the remote will receive a
confirmation indicating the vehicle is running.
Receiving Commands
The remote pager will receive confirmation of sent commands and remote start notifications. For
example, after sending the lock command, the 2 Way remote will chirp and LED’s flash, confirming that
the vehicle has been successfully locked/armed. To see if your 2 Way remote is in range, hold the
buttons for 2.5 seconds – if the remote receives an audible and visual confirmation, it is
in range. IMPORTANT: 2 Way LED G15 FMX remotes do not receive page back alerts if an alarm is
triggered only while your vehicle is remote started.
Active Lock/Arm and Unlock/Disarm
Tap button
for a half second to lock/arm. The LED will flash on your remote. If your vehicle is
locked, tap button
to unlock; if your vehicle is unlocked, tap button
to lock.
IMPORTANT: If the alarm has been triggered (Horn is going off), you must wait up to 5 seconds before
disarming the alarm – the first
system.
button tap will shut off the alarm and the second will unlock/disarm the
IMPORTANT: If your alarm has been triggered (Siren is sounding, parking lights flashing, and/or
horn honking), you must wait until your 2 Way LCD remote has been paged before disarming. The
first unlock button tap will shut off the alarm. The second will unlock/disarm the system.
Passive Lock/Arm
7
The system can be configured to passively lock and arm the vehicle. Put the system in passive
by tapping buttons
simultaneously for a half second. The remote will beep once and
the LED’s will illuminate to indicate the system is in passive lock and arming mode. Repeat this
procedure to turn Passive Mode off.
While in passive mode, the system will lock and arm the alarm 30 seconds after the last door is closed.
As an indicator that the vehicle is going to passively lock and arm, the remote and siren will chirp once
and the parking lights will flash once at both 10 and 20 seconds prior to passively locking and arming. If
you want the system to passively arm and not passively lock, ask your local Firstech dealer
Automatic Transmission Remote Start Function
Hold the Key/Start
button for 2.5 seconds to remote start an automatic transmission
vehicle. If you are in range and vehicle is ready to start, the remote will beep once and the
backlight will light up indicating that the remote start command has been successfully
transmitted.
If you are in range and the remote beeps three times, there is a remote start error. Refer to the “remote
start error diagnostic” on the last page of this manual for details.
Upon remote start confirmation, the LED’s will begin flashing to show the amount of run time remaining.
The remote start run time can be programmed for 3, 15, 25, or 45 minutes – ask your local authorized
dealer to adjust your remote start run time.
IMPORTANT: Your vehicle’s key must be inserted into the ignition and turned to the “on” position prior
to driving your vehicle. If the foot brake is pressed prior to turning the key to the “on” position, the vehicle
will shut off.
Manual Transmission Remote Start Function (Reservation Mode)
In order to remote start a manual transmission vehicle, the system must first be set in Reservation Mode.
Reservation Mode must be set each and every time you want to remote start a manual transmission
vehicle. The purpose of Reservation Mode is to leave the transmission in neutral before exiting the
vehicle.
IMPORANT:
• The FT-DAS must be installed and working properly.
• The transmission must be left in the neutral position.
• The vehicle’s windows must be rolled up.
• The vehicle’s door pins must be in working order.
• Do not install this remote start on a manual transmission vehicle that has a convertible or
removable top.
• Do not set reservation mode or remote start with people in the vehicle.
Activating Reservation Mode
STEP 1: While the vehicle is running, place the transmission in neutral, set the emergency / parking
brake, and remove pressure from the foot brake.
STEP 2: Remove the key from the vehicle’s ignition. The vehicle’s engine should remain running even
after the key has been removed. If the vehicle does not remain running, visit your local authorized
Firstech dealer for service.
8
STEP 3: Exit the vehicle and close the door. The vehicle’s doors will lock/arm and then engine will shut
down. If the vehicle’s engine does not shut off, your door trigger may not be functioning properly.
Discontinue use of the remote start feature and take your vehicle to a local authorized Firstech dealer for
service.
When the vehicle shuts off, your system is in reservation mode and is ready to safely remote start.
IMPORTANT: By default, the system will lock/arm the vehicle upon setting reservation mode. Take care
to not lock your keys inside the vehicle.
Cancelling Reservation Mode
Reservation mode will be cancelled for the following reasons;
• The FT-DAS is not installed and/or configured correctly.
• You did not activate the parking brake prior to turning off the ignition.
• You pressed the foot brake after the key was removed from the ignition.
• You released the parking brake after the key was removed from the ignition.
• You entered valet mode, opened the vehicle’s door, hood, trunk or set off the alarm.
Reservation Mode Settings
Reservation mode settings can be programmed by your authorized dealer.
Option 1: Locks doors before Reservation Mode is set.
Option 2: Hold Key/Start button to initiate Reservation Mode.
Option 3: Reservation mode sets 10 seconds after the last door is closed, as opposed to immediately.
This option will allow you to access the vehicle’s rear doors, trunk or hatch prior to the system setting
reservation and passively locking/arming.
Option 4: Locks doors after Reservation Mode is set.
Trunk Release
Hold button
for 2.5 seconds to release the trunk or hatch. If you are in range, the remote will beep
twice and the LED’s will flash, indicating that the trunk release command has been successfully
transmitted.
IMPORTANT: Trunk release is an optional vehicle feature that may require additional parts and labor.
Auxiliary Outputs/Window Roll-Down/Sliding Doors
Your system is equipped with two additional outputs that can be configured to control windows, open
power sliding doors, open a power sliding moon roof, or even turn on a rear defroster. These outputs can
be configured for pulsed, timed or latched settings. Your authorized dealer can set these outputs up
accordingly. Using auxiliary outputs to control additional vehicle functions will require additional parts and
can be rather labor extensive.
Tap button
for a half second to trigger auxiliary output 1. Tap button
for a half
second to trigger auxiliary output 2. The vehicle’s parking lights will flash once and/or siren chirp
once indicating that the auxiliary outputs have been triggered.
By default, the system is in Secure Auxiliary Mode, which requires you to hold buttons
for 2.5 seconds prior to triggering auxiliary 1 or 2. To turn off secure auxiliary, please contact your
authorized Firstech dealer.
Silent Arm/Disarm
9
Upon lock/arm and unlock/disarm, you can eliminate vehicle’s audible confirmation by muting the
siren. Normally, the siren will chirp once to indicate the system is locked/armed and twice to
indicate the system is unlocked/disarmed. To mute the siren, tap the Lock
and Unlock
buttons simultaneously for a half second. IMPORTANT: Your system must be programmed by your
installer before this is available. Even when the siren is muted, it will still sound if the alarm is triggered.
Shock Sensor On/Off
Hold the Lock and Trunk buttons
simultaneously for 2.5 seconds to turn the shock
sensor on and off. The remote will beep twice to confirm the shock sensor is off. The remote will
beep once to confirm the shock sensor is on. IMPORTANT: Turning off the shock sensor also
turns off any optional sensors.
FT-DAS
STEP 1: Turn the ignition to the ‘on’ position.
STEP 2: 2 Way remotes-hold buttons 1 and 2 (Lock and Unlock) for 2.5 seconds. You will get two
parking light flashes. 1 Way remotes-hold Lock and Unlock for 2.5 seconds. You will get two parking light
flashes.
STEP 3: To set the Warn Away Zone 1, tap button 1. (1 Way: Lock) After you get one parking light flash,
tap the vehicle. You will get siren chirps 1-most sensitive through 10-least sensitive. This sets the impact
sensitivity of Warn Away Zone 1. Setting Zone 1 will automatically set Zone 2. If you would
like to manually set Zone 2 proceed:
To set Instant Trigger Zone 2, tap button 2. (1 Way: Unlock) After you get two parking light flashes, tap
the vehicle. You will get siren chirps 1-lowest through 10-highest. This sets the impact sensitivity of
Instant Trigger Zone 2.
STEP 4: Once you get two parking light flashes, you are ready to test your DAS.
FT-Shock
Adjusting the shock sensor sensitivity is done at the actual sensor, which is generally mounted
somewhere under the vehicle’s dashboard. The higher the number on the dial means greater sensitivity
to impact. The recommended dial setting for most vehicles is somewhere between 2 and 4. If you are
testing your sensor, please note that the shock sensor does not recognize impact for 30 seconds after
the system has been armed.
Advanced Features
The following section reviews advanced system functions. Many of these functions require multiple steps
or additional programming by your local authorized dealer.
Antenna LED (ANT-2WFMX and ANT-1WFMX)
The FMX antennas come with a blue LED built in on the rear. This LED flashes when your vehicle is
locked/armed. There is also a green/red LED on the front of your antenna. This green/red LED is used to
program remotes and to turn the flashing blue LED on and off. You can turn the flashing LED on or off
using the following procedure:
10
STEP 1: Unlock/disarm your system using the remote.
STEP 2: Press and hold the button on your antenna for 10 seconds. The front LED will stay solid red for
3 seconds then turn off.
STEP 3: Release the button after 10 seconds and the LED turns on either green or red. Tap the button
once. The LED will change to green or red. Red means that the flashing LED is off. If you tap the
antenna button once and it turns green, the flashing LED is on.
Drive Lock/Ignition Controlled Door Locks
Tap buttons
simultaneously for a half second to turn drive lock on and off (also
known as ignition controlled door locks). The vehicle’s parking lights will flash once and/or siren
chirp once to confirm drive lock is off. The vehicle’s parking lights will flash twice and/or siren chirp twice
to confirm drive lock is on.
IMPORTANT: Drive lock mode requires additional work from your authorized Firstech dealer. Drive lock
has two settings;
Default 1: Off
Option 2: Locks the doors when the ignition is on and after the brake is depressed.
Option 3: Locks the doors when the RPM’s have reached two times that of idle speed (this setting
requires that a tachometer wire is connected).
With both settings, the doors will unlock when the ignition is turned off. If using this feature on a manual
transmission vehicle, the doors will unlock upon setting the emergency / parking brake.
Turbo Timer Mode
The built-in turbo timer keeps the vehicle’s engine running for either 1, 2, or 4 minutes
(programmable from dealer) after the vehicle key has been removed from the ignition. This
feature will keep oil running through the turbo system to allow for appropriate cooling time.
Tap buttons
simultaneously for a half second to turn on or off turbo mode. The remote will
beep once to confirm that turbo mode is activated. The remote will beep twice to confirm turbo mode is
off.
IMPORTANT: To utilize this feature, the emergency / parking brake wire must be connected to the
Firstech system. Consult your local authorized dealer for installation.
2nd Car Mode (Multiple Vehicle Control)
Most 2 Way remotes have the ability to operate a 2nd vehicle. Hold buttons

13
Cold/Hot Start Mode
Cold/hot start mode works in conjunction with timer start mode (see above) and the temperature sensor.
It allows you to configure your timer start feature to check the vehicle’s temperature prior to starting. All
of these options require programming from your local dealer.
Anti Jacking Mode
Your system has a mode that requires you to keep your remote separate from your key chain. This
feature also requires additional labor. Please consult your installer for more details. The Anti Jacking
mode allows you to safely disable your vehicle once a thief has driven off with your property. If you are
car jacked and still have your remote, you can panic the system by holding the Lock button down for 4
seconds. The siren will sound for 30 seconds and the vehicle will shut down.
More Optional Sensors
If you purchased an Alarm or Alarm and Remote Start system, you can add additional sensors from
Firstech. Protect your investment by adding a battery back up system to protect main power or a FT-DAS
sensor to protect custom wheels and tires.

Programming Remotes on Push to Start (PTS) Vehicles
Most Push to Start vehicles do not have a key that you can turn between the On and Acc positions. This
makes programming remotes difficult. We have a different set of steps for programming remotes.
STEP 1: Press the PTS button to turn the vehicle to the ‘On’ position. Do not start the car.
STEP 2: Within 5 seconds, push the PTS button again to turn the vehicle ‘Off.’
STEP 3: Within 5 seconds, push the PTS button to turn the ignition ‘On.’
STEP 4: Within 5 seconds, press and release the foot brake 3 times. The parking lights will flash once to
indicate remote programming has begun.
STEP 4A (FMX REMOTES ONLY): If using one of the FMX frequency remotes, you will need to
tap the button on the antenna after the 3 foot brake presses in STEP 4. The front LED on the
antenna will turn on solid red. After the antenna’s LED illuminates solid red, proceed to STEP 5.
STEP 5: Tap the lock button on the 1st remote. The LED on the antenna will flash green. The parking
lights will also flash once, indicating that the remote has been coded. Repeat this step to code each
remote, pressing the lock button one after the other.
STEP 6: After 10 seconds, your vehicle will exit remote programming mode.
Remote Start Error Diagnostics
If the remote start fails to start the vehicle, the parking lights will flash three times immediately. Following
those three flashes the parking lights will flash again corresponding to the error table.

will flash 4 times, pause then flash again with the error code. Tap the Start on 2 Way remotes to initiate
the shutdown error codes. On 1 Way remotes, hold the Trunk and Start buttons together for 2.5 seconds.
