Safety Information
Please take these safety precautions under the following conditions:
1. Servicing the vehicle
When servicing (i.e. changing the oil, washing your car) your automobile, the
CompuStar system should be in Valet Mode. There is a safety shutdown switch
under the hood that deactivates the remote starter function if the hood is open.
However, if the switch has been damaged or the switch has been installed
improperly, the vehicle may start when Button II is pressed for 2 seconds even if
the hood is open.
2. Loaning your vehicle to others
Whenever you loan your vehicle to an individual who is not familiar with
Compustar, please put the vehicle in Valet mode. This will prevent the vehicle
loaner from accidentally activating the CompuStar auto-security system.
3. For manual transmission vehicles
If the Compustar 2WSSR is installed in a manual transmission vehicle, extra
precautions are required because the Compustar does not monitor the gear shift:
Important! Under normal circumstances, Reservation Mode is cancelled when a
door or hatchback opens. Please verify if the opening of any door or hatchback
cancels Reservation Mode. If any of the doors or hatchback is not monitored by
CompuStar because of improper installation or a faulty dome light switch, do not
use the CompuStar and take your vehicle to the dealer immediately for repair.
Do not set Reservation Mode when the window(s) are open or if there is anyone
inside of the vehicle including animals.

If you replace or add additional remotes, you can program up to three remotes,
please perform the following procedure:
Step 1: Activate Valet/Programming mode by manually turning the ignition on
and off five times (between Acc and On) with car key within a 10 second period.
The parking light will flash once with successful completion of this step.
Step 2: Within a 10 second period after cycling the ignition for the 5th time, press
button I. The car parking lights will flash once to confirm that the transmitter has
been programmed. Continue program the additional remotes. The parking lights
will flash two times when the programming mode is expired.
Alarm Mode
You can arm or disarm alarm mode by pressing Button I for a ½ second.
Press Buttons (I+II) for a ½ second to make your car siren mute when arming or
disarming your vehicle. Keep in mind that your car siren will still activate for all
other modes (i.e. panic, alarm, shock sensor) regardless of whether or not your
car siren is in mute mode. The car siren will be mute only when arming or
disarming your vehicle.
In alarm mode, the starter kill function (this maybe an optional feature provided
by your installer) is activated. This feature disengages the starter mechanism on

your car that prevents you from starting your car even with a manual key when
your vehicle’s alarm mode is activated.
Note: If you lose your remote after you have armed the vehicle, use your key to
open the vehicle. The siren will go off. Turn on and off ignition 5 times with your
key to shut off the siren and turn the system into valet mode. Cancel the valet
mode with remote later. See Valet mode.
Note: (Siren duration is 30 to 60 sec depending on the options set at the time of initial
installation.)
Dual Stage Shock Sensor
Press Buttons (I+III) for 2 seconds to activate or deactivate the dual stage shock
sensor. The dual stage shock sensor will activate 30 seconds after the
CompuStar alarm mode is armed. When the dual shock sensor is engaged, the
remote-pager security alerts will be triggered by the following:
I. Light impact to your vehicle will activate the first stage shock sensor
and the car siren will chirp 4 times in addition to the parking lights flashing
4 times. The remote pager unit will beep and the hammer icon shows up a
couple times
II. Heavy impact to your vehicle will activate the second stage shock
sensor and the car siren will chirp for 30 to 60 seconds and the parking
lights will flash for 30 to 60 seconds. The remote-pager will be notified
audibly and a hammer icon will blink in the CompuGLO LCD. Press
Button I for a ½ second to turn off the second stage shock sensor sirens
and flashing lights.
Auto -Start Function
Press Button II for 2 seconds to auto-start an automatic transmission engine.

The engine will run 15 or 25 minutes (25 or 40 min for diesel) depending on
preset options at the time of installation and then shut off. If your remote-pager
has a problem starting the vehicle, CompuStar will try 2 additional times. If the
engine does not start after the third attempt, please call your authorized
CompuStar dealer.
Flashing Battery Icon during remote start. The battery icon flashes while
engine running. Each of the 4 bars of the battery indicates 25% of the
remaining engine running time.
Continuation Mode:
While your vehicle is running with your key, if you press button II for 2 seconds,
you are now in the continuation mode. Your engine will continue running for the
preset time even if you take your key from the ignition. With this mode, the
engine will continue running without key during your quick stop at, for example, a
grocery store.

OPTIONAL PROGRAMMABLE FEATURES
These additional programmable features can be programmed to the CompuStar
system by your authorized CompuStar dealer.
Ignition Lock
Automatic Transmission Vehicle: This programmable option enables your vehicle
to automatically lock the doors upon starting the vehicle with a key. In addition,
the vehicle will automatically unlock the doors upon pulling the key out from the
ignition. This option must be chosen at the time of installation.
Manual Transmission Vehicle or Turbo Mode: This programmable option will
locks the doors in 5 seconds after starting the vehicle with a key and the
emergency brake is released.
Auto Arming
You can turn this function on or off by pressing Button I for 2 seconds.
When set to Auto arming, your security system will arm automatically after all the
car doors are closed, your remote is away from the vehicle by more than 50 to
100 ft and 15 seconds have passed since the last Auto Disarm. Your system
will disarm automatically if your remote comes within 50 to 100 ft radius from the
vehicle. You have an option for Auto Arming without Auto Lock by option
programming. Consult your installer for this programming. Please read the next
paragraph for the interaction between Auto Arming and Passive Arming.
Passive Arming
You can turn this function on or off by pressing Buttons (II+III) for a ½ second.
When set to passive arming, your security system will arm automatically 30
seconds after all the car doors are closed. There are two types of passive arming
that can be programmed by your CompuStar dealership: (1) passive arming with
passive lock and (2) passive arming with active lock.
© 2001 Firstech, Inc. Page 13
Passive locking means the door will lock when the system passively arms. In the
default factory setting, the system is armed and locked actively, which means the
system will only arm/lock when the remote-pager is utilized.
Note:
1.
2.
If you select both Auto Arming and Passive Arming, Auto
Arming takes priority over Passive Arming.
If you select Passive Arming with Active Lock in the
programming option, you are also selecting Auto Arming
without Auto Lock. Consult your installer.
Turbo Mode
If this optional Turbo Mode has been programmed at the time of installation,
you can turn this feature on and off by pressing Buttons (III+IV) for a ½ second.
Under this mode, engine continues running for 2 minutes after key has been
taken out from the ignition if emergency brake was on when the key is taken out.
To utilize this mode, the emergency brake sensing wire has to be connected to
the emergency brake wire of the vehicle. Consult the authorized dealer for this
mode.
OPTIONAL INSTALLATION FEATURES
The CompuStar 2WSSR remote-pager has additional features and expansion
possibilities that require additional parts and labor.
Cold Start Mode
If the optional temperature sensor has been installed, Timer Start Mode
becomes Cold Start Mode. Under this mode, your car automatically starts if the
temperature of the inside of the vehicle goes below the preset temperature. The
minimum interval between the starts will be 1.5 or 3.0 hours depending on preset
options during the time of installation. Cold Start Mode is activated or deactivated
by pressing Buttons (II+IV) for a ½ second.
© 2001 Firstech, Inc. Page 14
Optional Auxiliary 1 & Auxiliary 2
The auxiliary system is an optional car feature that can be tailored for your
vehicle by your local authorized CompuStar dealership. For example, you can
customize your car to have remote power control of your windows, radio, and
sunroof in addition to the rooftop on your convertible car.
