Congratulation on your new DEFA WarmUp system
DEFA WarmUp warms the car and makes it easy to start, just as if it had already been driven a few miles. In a convenient,
safe and efficient way, DEFA WarmUp ensures that warm, happy drivers are also sage and environmentally friendly - Two
important factors that have helped make us world leaders on the market.
DEFA WarmUp is a simple, user-friendly system, operated by a control unit. By pressing a few buttons, the driver can make
sure the car is easy to start, the temperature inside is comfortable and that the battery is always fully charged throughout
the winter.
Environmentally friendly cars are becoming increasingly important to manufactures and environment-conscious car owners.
Regardless of its quality, if an engine is cold, it will produce higher exhaust emissions and consume more petrol. Only a
preheated engine can quickly heat up the catalytic converter and reduce emissions to any significant degree. As an added
benefit, a preheated engine uses far less petrol, is easier to start and is less subject to wear and tear.

DEFA WarmUp custom tailored car heating.
DEFA WarmUp is a 230V module-based vehicle heating system consisting of an engine heater (SafeStart), an interior heater
(Termina), a battery charger (MultiCharger 1203) and a control unit/timer (Futura).
1. Engine heater - Warms the engine, both saving money and protecting the environment. Warm engines use less petrol
and emit considerably less CO2 than cold engines. The engine heater is unique for your vehicle and must be ordered
2. Interior heater - Ensures a comfortable cabin temperature and ice free windows.
3. Control unit - Easy to program, starts your DEFA WarmUp at the time you want, thus saving energy. The outside
temperature can guide the starting time in Auto mode.
4. Battery charger - Ensures that the battery is fully charged at all times. All the energy consuming equipment of most
modern cars – electrically heated rear windows, heated seats, heated mirrors, car stereo etc. – means that the time spent
driving to and from work is often not sufficient to charge the battery.
DEFA MiniPlug - The whole system is connected via the DEFA MiniPlug.
Termina - Interior heater.
DEFA WarmUp is available in two Termina versions. Termina 1400W and Termina 2000W interior heater. Both interior
heaters got a 3 step power switch. Off, Step I and Step II.
The interior heater uses a PTC (PTC= Positive Temperature Coefficient) heating element, which adjusts the output
depending on the temperature of the incoming air. As the interior warms up, the output is reduced and as a result the
power consumption is also reduced. The interior heater has an automatic overheating fuse. If this fuse cuts out, it can be
reset by unplugging the heater and leaving it disconnected until it cools off (approximately 30 minutes). There is also a
regular fuse for additional safety.
If this fuse melts, the heater must be returned to the factory for repair. To determine which fuse has been activated, please
refer to the troubleshooting table. The interior heater is mounted inside the car with a specially designed mounting bracket.
The interior heater can easily be removed from its bracket by pulling it in the direction of the airflow. It is mounted by
pushing the round rear of the interior heater onto the bracket.
MultiCharger 1203 - Battery charger.
The electronic battery charger has the following characteristics:
• Charging current 3A at 12V.
• Power distribution to engine and interior heater.
• Advanced, battery friendly technology allows continuous operation.
• Integrated relay for switching engine and interior heater on and off.
• Temperature compensated charging voltage.
• Splashproof (IP 44).
• Light indication during charging.
The battery charger functions independently of the start timer for the car heating system. The charger switches to
maintenance mode when the battery is fully charged. It can also be used to advantage in the summer. The LED at the top
of the charger is illuminated when the charger is charging with full effect. It is not illuminated during maintenance mode.
The LED blinks when switching from charging to maintenance mode. This means that the LED will be illuminated when
connected to 230V if the battery has been without charge for approximately 10 minutes.
Using the Futura control unit.
The control unit in the DEFA WarmUp ensures that the car is warm at the required time. The unit has 2 individual pick-up
times for every 24-hour, suitable for car owners using the car at the same time every day.
In addition to being an advanced control unit for the DEFA WarmUp, the unit is equipped with a number of other functions.
The control unit displays the outside temperature, it has an ice warning device and it shows the battery voltage/charging
The display lighting on the unit is lit when the engine is running or when one of the buttons is pressed.

Function of the buttons - Function button
For each hit on the button the unit displays:
• 24 hour clock.
• * Battery voltage.
• Drive-away time I - Default 08:00.
• * Outside temperature in °C
• Drive-away time II - Default 16:00
If the battery voltage and outside temperature are not
displayed, an outside temperature sensor is not installed. In this
case, the time-program controller will alternate between 24 h
clock, departure time I anddeparture time II each time the
button is pressed.
Arrow buttons
Used for setting the time and programming the drive-away times. Pressing both arrow buttons at the same time puts the
control unit into programming mode and the display digits blink. The left arrow button adjusts the time backward and the
right arrow button forward.
Heat button
The heat button is used to choose between several preprogrammed heating programs. For each hit on the
button the control unit varies between the following heating

Temperature-controlled automatic switch-on.
When Automatic switch-on is selected, the sensor will take the
outside temperature and decide the correct switch-on time in
relation to the programmed drive away time. Lower temperatures
require longer warming up periods to reach the required engine
and interior temperatures. The graph D shows the on-time in
minutes at different outside temperatures. Note that the on-time
is always related to programmed drive away time.

At 0°C the control unit switches on the DEFA WarmUp 75
minutes before drive away time. During this period the
engine temperature increases by approximately 30°C
At -17°C or colder the DEFA WarmUp is switched on
180 minutes before drive away time and the engine
temperature increases by approximately 50°C.
If the vehicle is not started at the programmed drive away time, the on-time is automatically extended by 2 hours
(Oversleep function). After that the system switches itself off and remains switched off until it is time to switch on for the
next drive away time. This is valid whether 1, 2 or 3 hours on-time has been selected. When the car is started the
remaining on-time and the oversleep function are automatically erased.
It is recommended to program the control unit to Automatic switch-on, as this is most economical.
Programming the time.
1. Press
until the display shows the time.
2. Press both arrow buttons
simultaneously. Time starts to blink 12:00.
3. For each hit on
time is set back by 1 minute. If the button is held down, the
time is set back 2 minutes per second for 5 seconds. After this the step is
increased to 10 minutes per second. Use
in the same way to set the time
forward. To save the set time – wait for 5 seconds until the blinking stops.
Programming drive away time I.
1. Press
until the display shows Drive away time I.

0-condition warning.
The control unit is equipped with a 0-condition warning, which will warn you
when the vehicle enters an area where slippery
conditions are likely. An outside sensor must be fitted for this function to work. If the vehicle enters an area where the
temperature sinks below 4°C or raises past – 4°C, the light on the display and the buttons blink rapidly for approximately 6
seconds. At the same time the temperature is shown for 15 seconds. The control unit can not be otherwise used when this
ice-warning is active.
Starting the engine.
When the engine is started any remaining on-time is erased and the ”On” symbol in the display is extinguished. The control
unit carries out an information sequence that displays: Battery voltage before start, charging voltage after start and outside
temperature (approximately 2 seconds for each function). At the end the control unit returns to the function selected before
the information sequence.
Switching off the engine.
When the engine is switched off, the control unit carries out an information sequence showing drive away time I and drive
away time II before returning to the function selected before the information sequence.
Futura - Display illumination.
The illumination of the control unit display will always be turned on when one of the buttons is pressed. The display will be
illuminated for approximately 1 minute after the last button is pressed. Depending on the usefulness of the information
displayed by the control unit, the illumination can be turned ON or OFF during driving.

Trouble shooting.
Two important points should be checked before going any further:
1. Is the power socket where you connected the DEFA WarmUp okey? If the fuse is blown, check if the circuit can take
the total current drain it is subjected to.
2. Check the settings in the control unit.
The tables below indicate reason and corrective measure for faults that may occur on a DEFA WarmUp.
