Introduction
This system is a state-of-the-art remote car starter system with command confirmation. It represents a major breakthrough in vehicle convenience technology and remote starter systems.
What is “eSH” Technology?
"eSH" technology uses Manchester decoding along with advanced custom data filters to help
reduce data-bit transfer errors. This filtering mechanism minimizes dropped commands by the
transceiver and develops more reliable range. By using narrow band filtering and unique software
driven noise filters, the radio set is able to achieve much better input sensitivity resulting in up to
2,000 feet of operating range.

Vehicle Presets
Heater and Heated Seat: When leaving the vehicle it is recommended to preset the accessory
controls in preparation for the next remote start. Settings for the blower motor (fan), front and rear,
as well as heated seats (if equipped) should not be left on HIGH. It is recommended to leave the
settings on LOW or MEDIUM instead.

Starter Kill Option
With this added security feature, the system will prevent your vehicle from starting with the Ignition
Key when the Starter Kill is armed. If your Autostart was installed with the Starter Kill option, you
will not be able to start your vehicle with the Key unless the system has been unlocked first.
Passive or Active Arming
The Starter Kill option can be programmed to be active (will not arm automatically) or passive (will
arm automatically). In Passive Mode, the system can be configured to arm automatically either
after 1 minute or after 3 minutes. If installed, the Starter Kill is configured by default to a 1-minute
Passive Arming Mode: the countdown starts when the Ignition is turned off.
x To disarm the Starter Kill option in Active or Passive Mode, press the UNLOCK button on the
transmitter. The parking lights will flash twice. (If Remote Door Locks were installed, this will
also unlock the doors.) In Passive Mode, the system will automatically re-arm 1 or 3 minutes

the engine has been turned off.
Important note: When the system re-arms
automatically, you can disarm the system again by
pressing the UNLOCK button.
Ignition-controlled Door Locks Option
This is an added security feature. If your system was installed with the Ignition-controlled Door
Locks option, the doors will automatically be locked as soon as the brake pedal is pressed after the
ignition key has been turned to the IGNITION ON (RUN) position. When the ignition key is turned to the
OFF position, the doors will automatically be unlocked.
Ignition Relock
Whenever the Ignition-controlled Door Locks are enabled and the ignition key is in the IGNITION ON
(RUN) position, when the brake pedal is pressed the system will automatically LOCK any door that
has been unlocked, opened and closed.
Secure Lock Option
Before it can remote-start your vehicle, the module must first disarm the factory security system.
The Secure Lock feature may be required on certain vehicle models with factory security systems
that automatically unlock the doors when the security system is disarmed.
To keep your vehicle protected when the factory security system is disarmed for a remote start,
Secure Lock will relock your doors as soon as the vehicle has started.
Once the engine run cycle ends, Secure Lock will rearm your factory security system.
