that your vehicle’s security system is active.
Starter Kill: The Failsafe starter kill relay prevents the engine from
starting
Note
May require additional parts and installation
Sensor triggers: The onboard shock sensor can distinguish minor impacts from major impacts to the vehicle exterior. Minor impacts causes
the system to emit a Warn-away output. Major impacts caused for
example by a forcible entry attempt, results in a Full Trigger output.
Point of entry triggers: Opening the hood or trunk causes a Full Trigger output, while opening a Door or turning on the Ignition causes the
the siren to chirp 3 seconds before beginning the Full Trigger output.
This 3 second delay allows time to disarm and silence the siren in
case of accidental trigger.
Sensor Silent Arm protection
Sensor Warn-away and Sensor Full Trigger activations are defeated.
Point of entry triggers will activate the Full Trigger output.
Full Silent Arm Protection
Sensor Warn-away, Sensor Full Trigger and Point of Entry activations

As a precaution, if programmed for Passive Arming or Auto
re-arming the system should be placed into Valet Mode until
a remote is available .
Trigger Zone Fault Report
When armed by remote command the system runs a status check of
the alarm trigger zones. Faulty zones (usually caused by dome light
delay or open trunk) are bypassed and reported via the control center
LED, while all other trigger zones remain active and are monitored to
protect the vehicle. Should a faulty zone self correct (dome light turns
off) it becomes active and is then monitored normally.
The siren chirps once again a few seconds following the arming
chirps as an audible alert, the control center LED flashes in groups to
indicate the zone number.

Remote and System Operations
Passive Arming*
Park and exit the vehicle, after the doors are closed the Passive arming countdown begins. The led flashes quickly and upon reaching 20
seconds the siren then chirps once. At 30 seconds the system arms
itself.
Anytime before the system arms you can re-enter the vehicle or
open the trunk to load or unload items and, after closing passive arming resumes.
To stay secure in case of accidental disarming the system, if a
door is not opened within 30 seconds the system re-arms itself and
locks the doors.
Auto Re-arming*
Auto re-arm ensures the vehicle stays protected if it is not entered after
disarming by remote control. After disarming by remote, the alarm
automatically re-arms itself (and locks the doors if programmed on) in
30 seconds. Open any point of entry to stop the re-arm until the next
disarm by remote.
Onetime Bypass*
Turn the ignition On for one to three seconds and then Off. The siren
chirps once to confirm one-time bypass is enabled.
One-time bypass can be used to temporarily bypass the Passive arming operation for one cycle. It also bypasses the comfort closure and
auxiliary channel outputs if programmed to activate when arming.
After the next disarm all operations return to normal.
* These features must be turned on by an authorized Directed dealer.
26

Safety
Remote starters on manual transmission vehicles operate differently than those
with automatic transmission because you must leave your car in neutral. You
must read this Owner’s Guide to familiarize yourself with the proper procedures
regarding manual transmission remote starters. If you have any questions, ask
your authorized Directed dealer or contact Directed at 1-800-753-0600.
Before remote starting a manual transmission vehicle, be sure to:
s Leave the vehicle in neutral and be sure no one is standing in front or
behind the vehicle.
s Only remote start on a flat surface
s Have the parking brake fully engaged
WARNING! It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure the parking/emergency brake properly functions. Failure to do so can result in personal injury or
property damage. We recommend the owner have the parking / emergency
brake system inspected and adjusted by a qualified automotive shop biannually.
Use of this product in a manner contrary to its intended mode of operation may
result in property damage, personal injury, or death. (1) Never remotely start
the vehicle with the vehicle in gear, and (2) Never remotely start the vehicle
with the keys in the ignition. The user must also have the neutral safety feature
of the vehicle periodically checked, wherein the vehicle must not remotely start
while the car is in gear. This testing should be performed by an authorized
Directed dealer in accordance with the Safety Check outlined in the product
installation guide. If the vehicle starts in gear, cease remote start operation immediately and consult with the authorized Directed dealer to fix the problem.
After the remote start module has been installed, contact your authorized dealer
to have him or her test the remote start module by performing the Safety Check
outlined in the product installation guide. If the vehicle starts when performing
the Neutral Safety Shutdown Circuit test, the remote start unit has not been
properly installed. The remote start module must be removed or the installer
must properly reinstall the remote start system so that the vehicle does not start
in gear. All installations must be performed by an authorized Directed dealer.
