YourAPS-775Remote StartAlarm System has many features and available options some of which are selected at time of installation. For your reference, the list on page 7 of this manual shows what features and options have been installed. Consult your installing dealer for options that may have been installed and are not listed.

ARMING THE SYSTEM - ACTIVE:

1.Turn the engine off, exit the vehicle, and close all doors, hood and trunk.

2.Press and release the Arm/Disarm button of your key chain transmitter one time.

The parking lights will flash once, the siren will chirp once, and the dash mounted LED will begin to flash slowly confirming the system is armed. If you have the optional door lock/unlock circuit installed, the doors will lock.

Note: If the siren chirped three times, then you have left a door, hood, or trunk ajar. Simply closing that opening will provide full protection. If your vehicle has delayed interior lighting, you may also get three chirps when arming. Once the light turns off, you will hear one chirp confirming full arming. If the siren did not sound when arming, then the chirps have been turned off. Refer to the section on "Eliminating the Arm/Disarm Chirps" shown later in this manual.

SILENT ARMING - ACTIVE:

1.Turn the engine off, exit the vehicle, and close all doors, hood and trunk.

2.Press and hold the Arm/Disarm button of your key chain transmitter for two seconds. The parking lights will flash once, and the dash mounted LED will begin to flash slowly confirming the system is armed. The siren will not chirp. If you have the optional door lock/ unlock circuit installed, the doors will lock.

Note: If the siren chirps three times, then you have left a door, hood, or trunk ajar. Simply closing that opening will provide full protection. If your vehicle has delayed interior lighting, you may also get three chirps when arming. Once the light turns off, you will hear one chirp confirming full arming.

ARMING THE SYSTEM - PASSIVE (AUTOMATIC)

If the passive arming feature has been selected:

1. Turn the engine off, exit the vehicle, and close all doors, hood and trunk.

The dash mounted LED will begin to flash rapidly indicating that the 30 second passive arming timer has begun. If the LED does not begin to flash rapidly, then you have left a door, hood, or trunk ajar. Closing this entry point will allow the arming cycle will begin. If any entry point is opened during the 30 second arming cycle, arming will be suspended. When all entry points are closed, the arming cycle will begin again.

At the end of the 30 seconds, the parking lights will flash once, the siren will chirp once, and the dash mounted LED will begin to flash slowly confirming the system is armed. If the siren did not sound when arming, then the chirps have been turned off. Refer to the section on "Eliminating the Arm/Disarm Chirps" shown later in this manual. Passive door locking is a selectable feature. If you have the optional door lock/unlock circuit installed, the doors may or may not lock passively depending upon the setup during installation.

PROTECTIONWHILETHESYSTEMISARMED:

Opening any protected entry point, hood, trunk, or doors will cause the alarm to trigger immediately. The siren will sound and the parking lights will flash for 30 seconds, then stop and continue to monitor all protected entry points. If the thief left the door opened, the unit

Page 2

will sound for six 30 second cycles then shut down, isolate the triggered zone and continue to protect all other zones.

Whenever the system is armed, the dash mounted LED will slowly flash. This serves as a visual deterrent to a potential thief. This LED is a very low current light emitting diode, and will not cause the battery to drain even if left unattended for long periods of time.

Whenever the system is triggered, the vehicle's parking lights will flash for the full siren sounding period. Optional - whenever the system is triggered, the interior courtesy light will flash for the full siren sounding period.

Whenever the system is armed, the vehicle starter circuit is disabled, and the vehicle will not start with the ignition key.

Whenever the system is armed, any strong impact to the vehicle will cause the shock detector to trigger the alarm. Any lesser impact will cause the pre-detectstage of the shock sensor to emit a few short series of warning tones from the siren.

DISARMINGTHESYSTEM

As you approach the vehicle, press and release the Arm/Disarm button on the keychain transmitter.

The parking lights will flash two times, the siren will chirp twice, and the dash mounted LED will turn off.

If you have the optional door lock/unlock circuit installed, the doors will unlock. If you have the optional entry illumination circuit installed, the interior light will turn on for 30 seconds or until the ignition key is switched on.

Note: If the passive arming mode was selected at time of installation, the dash mounted LED will start flashing rapidly indicating that the system is rearming. Opening any door will suspend the automatic arming.

If the parking lights flashed three times, and the siren chirps four times, this indicates that the alarm system was triggered during your absence. Before turning on the ignition key, examine the dash mounted LED's flash pattern. The number of flashes identifies the triggered zone. For additional information, refer to INTRUSION WARNING SIGNALS found later in this manual. If the siren did not sound upon disarm, then the chirps have been turned off. Refer to the sectiontitledELIMINATINGTHEARM/DISARMCHIRPS.

SILENTDISARMING

1. As you approach the vehicle, press and hold the Arm/Disarm button of your key chain transmitter for two seconds.

The parking lights will flash twice, and the dash mounted LED will turn off confirming that the system is disarmed. The siren will not chirp. If you have the optional door lock/unlock circuit installed, the doors will unlock. If you have the optional entry illumination circuit installed, the interior light will turn on for 30 seconds or until the ignition key is switched on.

Note: If the passive arming mode was selected at time of installation, the dash mounted LED will start flashing rapidly indicating that the system is rearming. Opening any door will suspend the automatic arming.

If the parking lights flashed three times, and the siren chirps four times, this indicates that the alarm system had been triggered in your absence. Before turning on the ignition key, examine the dash mounted LED's flash pattern. The number of flashes identifies the triggered zone. For additional information, refer to INTRUSION WARNING SIGNALS found later in this manual.

Page 3

INTRUSIONWARNINGSIGNAL

This system will inform you if an intrusion attempt has occurred while you were away from the vehicle. Upon disarm, the siren will chirp 4 times and the parking lights will flash 3 times. Enter the vehicle and before turning on the ignition switch, observe the LED flash pattern. If the LED flashes one time...pause, one time...pause etc., then an intrusion attempt was made by impact or a strong vibration that the shock sensor detected. Check the vehicle for possible damage to the glass or body panels.

If the LED flashes two times...pause, two times...pause etc., then an intrusion attempt was made to open the hood, trunk, or by an accessory triggering device. Check the vehicle for indications of forced entry to these openings.

If the LED flashes three times...pause, three times...pause etc., then an intrusion attempt was made to the vehicle doors. Check all doors for indications of forced entry.

Note: The LED intrusion warning indications are stored in the system's memory and will be erased when the ignition switch is turned on.

VALET/SYSTEM OVERRIDE SWITCH

The valet switch allows you to temporarily by-passall alarm functions, eliminating the need to hand your keychain transmitter to parking attendants or garage mechanics. When the system is in the valet mode, all alarm functions areby-passed,however the remote panic feature, and the optional remote door lock/unlock will remain operational. To enter the valet mode:

1.Start with the valet switch in the "off" position

2.Turn the ignition switch to the "on" position.

3.Within 10 seconds of step 2, move the valet switch to the "on" position.

The dash mounted LED will turn on solid indicating that the valet mode has successfully been entered.

To return to the normal, (alarm mode), operation, move the valet switch to the "off" position any time the ignition switch is in the "on" position.

Note: In the event that you lose your keychain transmitter or the transmitter fails to operate the alarm system, the valet switch can be used to disarm the alarm. To disarm the alarm:

1.Open the door with the vehicle door key. (The siren will sound)

2.Turn the ignition switch to the "on" position.

3.Move the valet/override switch to the "on" position.

The system will disarm and the vehicle can be operated normally.

Always remember to move the valet switch to the "off" position to ensure the vehicle remains protected at all times.

ELIMINATING THE NORMAL ARM/DISARM CHIRPS

You can selectively eliminate the normal arm & disarm chirps by holding the transmitter button slightly longer when arming or disarming. This will prevent the siren chirps for one arm or disarm cycle. If you find this inconvenient and wish to eliminate these chirps permanently,

1.Start with the valet switch in the 'off" position.

2.Turn the ignition switch 'on" then 'off".

3.Within 10 seconds of turning off the ignition, move the valet switch 'on", "off', "on", "off", "on", "off".

4.If the chirps were on before you started, the siren will emit 2 short chirps indicating that the chirps are now off. If the chirps were off before you started, the siren will emit one

Page 4

short chirp indicating that the chirps are now on.

NOTE: If the vehicle battery is disconnected then reconnected, the unit will return to the default setting of chirps on. Repeat the above procedure to eliminate the arm/disarm chirps.

REMOTEPANICOPERATION

The arm/disarm button of your keychain transmitter also serves as a panic switch and will turn the alarm on from the maximum operating range of the transmitter. In an emergency situation, to use the panic feature, press and hold the arm/disarm button of your keychain transmitter for 3 seconds. This will cause the lights to flash, the siren to sound, and if the optional interior illumination circuit was installed, the interior light will flash.

To disengage the panic feature, press and release the arm/disarm button. If you do not shut off the panic feature, the system will time out and shut off automatically after 30 seconds. During this mode, all normal transmitter functions are operational.
