Strip away 1” of the insulation on the vehicle wire. Evenly part
the strands of the vehicle wire. Strip away 1.5” of insulation at
the end of the system wire. Thread the uninsulated portion of the
system wire between the parted strand of the vehicle wire. Wrap
the threaded uninsulated system wire around the uninsulated
vehicle wire. Wrap electrical tape to cover the uninsulated system
and vehicle wire connection.
Installing the Main Control Unit (MCU)
Find an accessible location inside the vehicle cabin to mount the MCU
keeping in mind how you will run the cables for the ignition harness and for
the programmable temperature display (CTD). Planning your installation will
ultimately save time and help to avoid service returns in the future.
Installing the Programmable Temperature Display (CTD04)
If you are not using a remote temp probe (RTP) in your install, you will need
to locate the CTD in an area that is not directly in front of an air conditioner
vent, or that is not exposed to direct sun light as either of these positions will
cause the on board sensor probe to cool off or heat up inaccurately. Typically
you can locate the CTD on the headliner above the rear view mirror. This gives
good coverage and also makes it accessible for the driver for activating and
programming of the system.

Wire Connections Explained
4. White/Blue, Activation input/Keep alive/ Program selector
A pulse negative input at this wire performs multiple functions that are
dependant on the systems corresponding mode:
In Standby or Ready mode a negative pulse will cause the system to enter
activation mode.
In Activation mode a negative pulse will cause the system to exit Activation
mode and return to either Standby or Ready mode depending on the
status of the CTD On/Off switch.
The KEEP ALIVE function allows the driver to enter the system into Activation
mode if the vehicle's engine is running via the ignition key. This can be
achieved by applying a negative pulse to this wire, wait 2 seconds,
then switch off the ignition key. NOTE, if either override input has a signal
i.e., break is pressed or hood is open, the Keep Alive function will not work.
In Feature Programming mode a negative pulse will act as a selector for
the settings of a particular feature. See Feature Programming for details.
1. BLACK, Chassis Ground
Connect this wire to a good source of chassis ground. It is preferred to use
a factory ground bolt as opposed to an aftermarket screw.
2. GREY, Override input Negative hood switch
Connect this wire to the provided mercury switch to prevent accidental
start-up while the vehicle is being serviced. The system will not go into
activation mode while this wire has a ground input. It can also be used
to override the system from a car alarm's negative siren output in case of
forced entry or attempted theft. Use diodes if connected to more than
the hood switch.

5. ORANGE, HI temperature output 200mA Negative
This wire will supply a 200mA negative output while the cabin temperature
is at or above the HI temperature threshold setting.
It can be connected to the trigger wire of the optional horn honk, pager,
window roll-down module, or any negative triggered alerting device.
6. BLUE, Factory Alarm Disarm Pulse
This wire supplies a momentary 200mA negative output at the beginning
of Activation mode.
7. PINK, Key Switched ignition output
This wire supplies a positive ignition output when the vehicle's ignition key is
switched to the run position. It can replace the ignition/accessory input to
a car alarm so the car alarm ignition sense will not trigger and sound the
alarm when the system automatically starts the vehicle. It can also be used
via an RLA to control access to weapons release or trunk pop button.
3. VIOLET, Tachometer input
Connect this wire to a tachometer signal for engine RPMs. The tach feed can
be found at either the negative side of the coil, the back of a tach gauge,
or at the engine computer module. Use a multi-meter to test for the tach wire
as a test light will most likely result in damage to the vehicle. The tach wire will
typically read between 1V and 6V AC.

Page 4
8. YELLOW, In park safety input Negative
Connect this wire to a circuit that provides a negative signal when the
vehicle is in park. This can be done by connecting to a factory park
safety circuit or by using the provided SFT contact set. This wire must be
connected for the system to work properly.
Connecting to a Factory Park Safety Circuit
Determine if the vehicle is factory equipped with an "in park" output. To work
properly it must supply a 12 volt negative signal with a 500mA headroom
capacity. This means that in addition to the load of the circuits it is
designed to supply this signal must be capable of supporting an additional
500mA.
NOTE, if you are uncertain about the capacity or functionality of a factory
"in park" circuit DO NOT TIE INTO IT. On many newer vehicles the side effects
will not be realized right away and can cause undesired operation. It is wiser
and easier to user the park safety contact set that is supplied in the kit then
to track down problems later!

9. BROWN, Override input Positive Shutdown
A positive input at this wire will shutdown the automatic mode of the system.
You can connect this wire to vehicle wire that shows a positive output when
the brake pedal is pressed. The system will not go into activation mode while
this wire has a positive input. It can also be used to override the system from
a car alarm's positive siren output in case of forced entry or attempted theft.
Use diodes to isolate multiple input connections.

Installing the SFT contact set
Under the driver's side dash, or at the steering column, find the automatic
transmission shift mechanism or strut. Find a mounting location in the park
position in which the safety contact and magnet can be located 1/4in
apart, tip to tip. Remove the cover to expose the adhesive backing on the
magnet & stick in place. Use silicon or epoxy glue to form a permanent
hold and let it set until tacked. Use tie straps to attach the contact to the
shift stabilizing strut. With a multi-meter attached to the white wires of the
contact, you should read a closed circuit when the vehicle is in park. If your
meter does not read a closed circuit, gradually move the contact closer to
the magnet unit you have a closed circuit. Now move the transmission from
the park to the reverse position, the meter should now show an open circuit.
If the circuit is still closed, gradually move the contact away from the magnet
until the circuit show open. If you have made this adjustment test again that
the circuit shows closed when in park. Once properly aligned you can
permanently fix the contact in place with silicone or epoxy glue. Connect
one of the white contact wires to chassis ground.

Installing the Ignition Switch Relay Harness
The vehicle’s ignition harness contains many of the wires that are
necessary to start and run the vehicle. This includes power,
starter signal, ignition feed, and accessory feed to the AC blower and
fan. Even though the vehicle may start and run it may be necessary to
energize multiple ignition/accessory feeds for the system to work properly.
On certain Chevy models you must connect a second ignition
wire or you will damage the transmission control module!
Please consult with us if you are unsure any wire connections.

Programming the Tachometer Signal
After the system is installed, you must program the system to register
the vehicle's tach signal for proper operation. If the installation is on
a tachless diesel vehicle, then you must change feature programming.
Start the vehicle with the ignition key,
within 10 seconds;
Press and hold the program button,
the LED inside the MCU view port will light constant, (see page 7 for location)
release the button and shut off the vehicle.
The tach signal has been learned.
If the LED fails to light, raise the RPMs when programming and
check your tach wire connection.
To Enter Feature Programming Mode
Most vehicles do not require changes to the default features. More commonly
the vehicle run time may be extended for use in very warm climates to
reduce engine restarts. There is no factory reset for these features, once
change, the option must be reprogrammed if the factory setting is desired.
With the key, turn the ignition on and then back off.
Within 10 seconds press and release the Program button the amount
of times corresponding to the feature number.
Press and hold the program button.
The Program LED will blink corresponding to the feature number
Momentarily ground the White/Blue wire "Pin# 4" to toggle the settings.
Release the Program button.
NOTE
The system will exit programming if the ignition is turned on,
the Program button is pressed too many times,
or more than 15 seconds elapses between steps.

Feature Programming Explained
1. The default selection enable the system to look for either a tach signal
(also default see feature 2) or battery voltage to determine if the vehicle's
engine is running. If this feature is selected off then the system will crank
the starter for the selected time (feature 5) then energize the Activation
circuits for the run time (feature 3) even if the vehicle did not start. It is
recommended to use the default selection.
2. Tach wire/Voltage Sense: . If you are using voltage sense then the violet
wire, Pin# 3, does not have to be connected. In voltage sense the unit
will crank the starter for the time set by feature 5. When the starter
has been engaged the system will check voltage to determine if the engine
is running. The voltage level can be programmed to a high or low setting,
see feature 6.
3. Run Time: This setting controls the duration that the engine runs per
activation. The default time is 12 minutes and can be change to 24 or
60 minutes. LED will blink 1=12min, 2=24min, 3=60min.
4. This feature selects the characteristics of the Aux 3 output. The default
selection causes the output to flash during Activation mode. Selecting this
off will cause the output to be constant during Activation mode. See wire
hook up for details.
5. Starter Crank Time: If step 1 is programmed for voltage sense, you may
need to change the crank time, default 1 sec. If a different crank time is
required momentarily ground the white/blue wire in relation to the desired time,
1 ground pulse = .6 sec., 2 = .8 sec., 3 = 1 sec., 4 = 1.2 sec., 5 = 1.4 sec.,
6 = 1.6 sec., 7 = 1.8 sec., 9 = 2 sec. The LED will blink the corresponding
number of times.
6. Check Voltage: Some vehicle have a number of accessories that
are energized when the engine is started. For these vehicles the voltage
variation between engine off and running can be very low and the system
may not see the engine as running. For these vehicle program the LO
setting.
7. Internal Programming Feature: DO NOT CHANGE SETTING!
8. Activation Pulse. This setting determines how many pulses are need to
trigger the start up process.: DO NOT CHANGE SETTING!

Operating Instructions
Factory Air Conditioner Setup
The vehicle's factory air conditioner must be configured in order for the Chilly Dog
to operate properly.
A manually adjustable controller is the most common type found on
vehicles today. This type requires the operator or user to activate a lever and
or button to select whether or not the AC will be on while the engine is running.
It can also includes a lever or switch that allows the user to adjust the intensity or
output. For this type the AC must be left in the on position and the intensity
should be set to maximum.
An electronically programmable controller requires the user to program the
desired interior temperature into memory. Again the controller must be set
to the on position, and the AC controller should be programmed to a low setting.
Modes of Operation
The Temperature Startup feature has four modes of operation;
(1) Override, (2) Standby, (3) Ready, and (4) Activated
(1) Override Mode
The system is in Override Mode whenever the vehicle is already running via the key, the
vehicle is not in park, the brake pedal is pressed (positive shutdown signal present), or the
vehicle's hood is in the raised position (negative shutdown signal present).
Override Mode supersedes all other modes!
(2), Standby Mode
The system is in Standby Mode when the system ready LED is off. This is located at
the CTD "Programmable Temperature Display". This is controlled by the push-button
switch also located at the CTD. In the Standby mode the system WILL NOT start the
vehicle engine based on the temperature inside the cabin of the vehicle.
In this mode;
The vehicle can be started by a pulse negative input at the White/Blue wire, pin # 4.
This can be supplied by an optional momentary switch or alarm system remote control input.
(3) Ready Mode
The system is in Ready Mode when the system On/Off switch is switched on and the vehicle's
transmission is in park. The ready LED on the On/Off switch will light on. In this mode the
system monitors the vehicle's cabin temperature. When the Local High programmed
temperature is reached, the system goes into Activated Mode (4).
(4) Activation Mode
In Activated Mode the vehicle's engine is started and the circuits necessary to operate
the air conditioning system are powered on. Activated Mode will stay on for 12 minutes
(factory) or program (24 or 60) minutes, then the system will return to the mode it was in
prior to activation. The system can go into Activated Mode by reaching the programmed
temperature as described in (3) or by a negative pulse at the White/Blue wire pin # 4 as
described in (2).
The Alert feature has three modes of operation;
(1) Alert Ready, (2) Alert, (3) Alert Override.
Operational Example When Using the optional Horn Honk Module;
Even if the Chilly Dog system has not been turned on by the handler via the
Ready/Standy switch, the Alert feature will trigger when the Remote High
temperature reaches 99 degrees. In this case the handler should first turn
on the Chilly Dog via the ready switch. Once the vehicle starts, the handler
should turn the ignition key to the run position;
(do not step on the brake or turn the ignition key to the crank position);
then press the Alert override button. This will stop the horn from honking. Once the
Chilly Dog has completed one 12 minute run cycle, the Chilly Dog will then shut
down the vehicle and restart if the Local Start temperature is at or above 79 degrees.
The system will automatically return to Alert Mode.
Page 13
(1) Alert Ready Mode
The system is normally in Alert Ready Mode. In this mode the system
monitors the vehicle's cabin temperature and reports high temperature
trouble. The factory default setting is 99 degrees Fahrenheit..
(2) Alert Mode
The system is in Alert Mode when the programmed Remote High temperature threshold is
reached or exceeded. A negative signal will be generated at the Orange wire, pin #5, and
can be connected to a number of trouble reporting devices including a horn honk module,
remote pocket pager, and window drop module.
(3) **NEW FEATURE** Alert Override Mode
The system can be switched to Alert Override mode by switching the vehicle ignition key
to the off position then pressing the Alert Override Momentary Switch. The Chilly Dog
temperature start feature will function normally, however, no high alert output will be generated.
The system will automatically return to the Alert Mode the next time the vehicle is started or
if the White wire on pin # 9 of the main harness receives a momentary ground input.
