installer. Please allow at least 30 seconds after arming your system for the shock sensor to fully activate.

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 vehicle, the CompuStar system should be placed 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 has been installed improperly, the vehicle may start when the Circle button is held down for 2.5 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 the CompuStar system, 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 P1WSHR is installed in a manual transmission vehicle, extra precautions should be taken as the system does not
monitor the gear placement.
Important!
Under normal circumstances, Reservation Mode is cancelled when a door or rear hatch opens. Please verify that the opening of any door or
rear hatch cancels Reservation Mode. If any of the doors or rear hatch are not monitored by the CompuStar due to improper installation or a
faulty door or dome light switch, do not use the ComupStar 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.
