CONGRATULATIONS On the purchase of your new Audiovox Alarm System. Taking a few minutes to read this installation and owners guide will provide you with the detailed information concerning all the features of your new alarm system.

MOUNTING THE SIREN:

1.Choose a location in the engine compartment that is away from hot and moving parts, considering the Red wire length which must connect to a battery positive source. Mount the siren high enough to prevent access from below the vehicle. Typical locations are the inner fender well or the rear firewall.

2.Once you've selected a location, inspect behind the area to insure that drilling the two holes required to mount the bracket will not penetrate wiring or fluid lines.

3.Using the siren bracket as a template, mark the two mounting holes with a scribe or punch at your chosen location and drill two 3/16" holes on the pre-selectedmarks.

4.Using the two 1/4" x 1" screws supplied, secure the siren mounting bracket in place.

5.Mount the siren to the bracket as shown using the two nuts, washers, and lock washers provided. Point the siren horn (front) downward to allow the sound to easily escape the engine compartment.

Note: If the bracket is mounted to a grounded metal surface, secure the Black siren ground when mounting the siren to the bracket. If the bracket is mounted to plastic or a non grounded surface, connect the Black siren ground wire as described in the following section.

WIRING THE SIREN:

RED:

Connect the Red wire of the siren to Positive post of the battery using the 5/16" ID ring terminal as shown. If your vehicle has side mount main battery terminals, it will be necessary to locate an alternate + 12 volt constant source. If you are unfamiliar with automotive wiring, it would be best to consult your dealer before making this connection.

BLACK:

Connect the Black siren wire to a clean grounded metal part of the vehicle. Drill a 1/8" hole in your chosen mounting location, scrape off any paint or grease from the area and secure the ground wire with the 1/4" ring terminal and screw provided.

GREEN LOOP:

The Green loop wire controls the voltage sensor. Cutting this wire loop will prevent the circuits voltage sensor from detecting voltage drops such as the interior light turning on when the door is opened. This wire should remain connected unless your vehicle has circuitry that remains powered when the vehicle is turned off. Examples of vehicle circuits that will necessitate cutting the Green loop wire are automatic load leveling shocks, electric analog clocks, on board computers that update their information on a regular basis. If you experience false triggers after installation of your alarm system, it may be necessary to delete the volt-

age sensor. In such situations, the level of protection is minimized and reliant strictly on the vibration detector. It may be necessary to increase the sensitivity of the vibration sensor. To do so see the section on adjusting the shock sensors for optimum results.

WHITE LOOP:

The White loop wire controls the voltage sensors arming delay. Vehicles with circuits that remain on after the ignition switch is turned off will require a delay before arming. Cutting the white loop wire will delay the voltage sensor's arming delay from 3 seconds to 5 minutes. This additional delay will allow any active circuit in the vehicle to turn off before the voltage sensor is capable of detecting voltage drops. This will allow you to arm the unit immediately when exiting the vehicle, once the vehicles electrical circuit stabilizes, the alarm will fully arm sometime later.

PROGRAMMING THE TRANSMITTERS:

Your AA-929Security System will learn up to two Audiovox code learning transmitters. To program the transmitters, disconnect power to the alarm for 10 seconds. Reconnect power and within 10 seconds, press button #1 of the first transmitter to be programmed. The siren will chirp indicating the transmitter has been learned. Within 5 seconds of the first learned transmitter, press button #1 of the second transmitter to be programmed. The siren will chirp indicating the second transmitter has been learned.

NOTE: If the vehicle battery is disconnected, or the alarm loses power, the transmitters WILL NOT remain in memory. In such instances, re-programmingthe transmitters is necessary to operate the alarm. Tore-programthe transmitters, repeat the above procedure.

OPERATING YOUR SYSTEM:

ARMING:

1.Exit your vehicle, and close all entry points.

2.Press button #1 of your keychain transmitter 1 time. The siren will emit a single tone indicating that the system is armed.

NOTE: Pressing the arming button twice within 3 seconds will allow the unit to arm without the shock sensor. This will be indicated by a single chirp tone followed by a single higher pitch chirp tone. When operating in this mode, the only detection means will be the voltage sensor. The next normal arming of your system will reinstate the shock sensor.

DISARMING:

1.As you approach your vehicle, press button #1 of your keychain transmitter 1 time. The siren will emit two chirps indicating that the system is disarmed. You may now enter and operate your vehicle in a normal manner.

NOTE: If you heard four chirp tones upon disarm, this indicates that the system had been triggered in your absence. Carefully inspect your vehicle for break in or physical damage.

-2-

If your system fails to operate as above:

1.Check and insure that your keychain transmitter is operating properly, and that the small LED on the transmitter illuminates when a transmitter button is depressed.

2.Check and insure that the Red wire of the system is connected to a +12 volt battery source.

3.Be certain that the transmitters are programmed into your alarm system. If power had been disconnected from the alarm or the vehicle main battery had been disconnected, it is necessary to re-programthe transmitters. See transmitter programming section of this manual.

TESTING THE VOLTAGE SENSOR:

1.Arm the alarm system by pressing button #1 of a programmed transmitter one time. The siren will chirp once confirming that the system is armed.

2.Wait 4 seconds to allow the unit to stabilize.

3.Open any light activated entry point, the siren will immediately trigger.

4.Turn the alarm system off by pressing button #1 of a programmed transmitter one time.

5.Repeat the above procedure for each light activated entry point.

If the unit fails to operate review the following section concerning voltage sensor adjustment.

VOLTAGE SENSOR:

In most instances, connecting the Red siren wire to the vehicle battery will provide adequate voltage sensing. If your vehicle does not trigger when the door is opened and the interior light turns on, it may be necessary to increase the voltage sensor's level of detection. Before making this wiring change, confirm that the interior light is in good working order and illuminates when any door is opened. If your interior light works properly, and the unit does not trigger, the Red wire will have to connect to a +12 volt source closer to the interior light. This may necessitate moving the Red wire to the interior of the vehicle and connecting to the interior light fuse. Routing the Red wire through a firewall grommet and connecting to the interior light fuse may be beyond the scope of your automotive wiring experience. If you are uncertain of this procedure, consult your dealer or qualified mechanic before attempting to re-wirethe voltage sensors through the firewall to increase the voltage sensor's level of detection.

TESTING THE SHOCK SENSOR:

NOTE: The shock sensor incorporated in your AA-929security system operates on two levels in any sensitivity range. The warn away(pre-detect)stage operates at 30% less shock (vibration) than the full trigger stage.

1.Arm your security system and allow the unit to stabilize.

-3-

2.Strike the windshield support pillar with the palm of your hand, the unit will emit a few short chirps from the siren. This is the warn away (pre-detect)stage.

3.Striking the support pillar firmly will cause the siren to sound. This is the full trigger stage.

4.Repeat the above procedure from various support areas of your vehicle, Bumpers, B Pillars, etc.

If your system fails to operate as described, review the following section concerning shock sensor adjustment.

SHOCK SENSOR ADJUSTMENT:

The shock sensor of the AA-929security system is electronically adjusted and is capable of 8 different sensitivity levels. To adjust or change the setting of your shock sensor disarm the system and within 8 seconds, simultaneously press both buttons of your transmitter until the siren emits a low tone. This indicates that the unit is ready to accept a sensitivity level change. Press button #2 of your transmitter to make adjustments. The siren will emit a tone synonymous with the changing levels. The lower the tone, the lower the setting, the higher the tone, the higher the setting. While in the adjustment mode, strike a support pillar of the vehicle, the unit will emit a 2 second tone indicating your setting. The system will allow you to keep this setting or make further adjustments. Once you've reached the desired level, press button #1 to lock in your setting. The siren will emit two high chirps to confirm your setting is locked. Follow steps1-4above to test the sensitivity level change.

INSTALLING THE WARNING DECALS:

Once you've confirmed the operation of your security system, you may elect to install the security systems warning decals. Typically these decals are installed on the lower left of the driver side and lower right of the passenger side windows as shown. Remove the decal backing paper and hold the ends of the decal toward you. This will cause the center to bend toward the window. Place the center of the decal on the window and roll the sides out one at a time. This will insure no air bubbles get under the decal when affixing it to the window. Once in place, smooth out the entire label pressing it firmly to the window.

FÉLICITATIONS d’avoir acheté un antivol Audiovox. Veuillez prendre quelques minutes pour lire ce guide d’installation et manuel de l’utilisateur contenant des informations détaillées concernant toutes les caractéristiques de votre nouvel antivol.

INSTALLATION DE LASIRÈNE :

1.Choisir un emplacement, dans le compartiment moteur, loin des pièces chaudes ou mobiles, tout en tenant compte de la longueur du fil rouge qui doit être connecté à la source positive de la batterie. Les emplacements les plus courants sont le compartiment d’aile intérieur ou la cloison pare-feuarrière.

2.Lorsque vous avez choisi un emplacement, inspecter ce qui se trouve derrière la surface pour vous assurer qu’en perçant les deux trous requis pour installer le support, vous n’atteindrez pas un fil électrique ou une conduite de fluide.

3.En utilisant le support de la sirène comme gabarit, faire une marque, avec une pointe à tracer ou un poinçon, sur les deux trous de montage à l’endroit choisi et percer deux trous de 3/16 po (4 mm) sur les marques indiquées.

4.À l’aide des deux vis ¼ po x 1 po (0,6 cm x 2,5 cm) fournies, fixer le support de montage de la sirène en place.

CÂBLAGEDELASIRÈNE: ROUGE:

Connecter le fil rouge de la sirène à la borne positive de la batterie

àl’aide de la cosse à anneau de 5/16 po (8 mm) DI comme il est montré. Si votre véhicule est muni d’une batterie à bornes latérales, vous devrez trouver une autre source de courant de +12 volts constants. Si vous n’êtes pas familier avec le câblage d’une automobile, il serait mieux de consulter votre concessionnaire avant de faire cette connexion.

NOIR:

Connecter le fil noir de sirène à une pièce de métal propre, mise

àla masse, du véhicule. Percer un trou de 1/8 po (3 mm) à l’emplacement que vous avez choisi, enlever la peinture ou la graisse sur la surface et fixer le fil de masse à l’aide de la cosse

àanneau de ¼ po (6 mm) et de la vis fournies.

VERT EN BOUCLE:

Le fil vert en boucle commande le capteur de tension. En coupant cette boucle de fil on empêche le capteur de tension des circuits

5.Monter la sirène sur le support, comme il est montré, à de détecter les baisses de tension comme lorsqu’on ouvre la

l’aide des deux écrous, rondelles et rondelles de blocage fournis. Pointer l’avertisseur de la sirène (avant) vers le bas pour permettre au son de s’échapper facilement du compartiment moteur.

Remarque :Si le support est monté sur une surface métallique mise à la masse, fixer le fil de masse noir de la sirène lorsque vous montez la sirène au support. Si le support est monté sur une surface en plastique ou non mise à la masse, connecter le fil de masse noir de la sirène selon les indications de la section suivante.

porte et que la lampe intérieure s’allume. Ce fil doit demeurer connecté à moins que votre véhicule ne soit doté de circuits qui demeurent alimentés lorsque la clé de contact est en position d’arrêt. Parmi les circuits de véhicule pour lesquels il faudra couper le fil vert en boucle, on retrouve : correcteurs automatique d’assiette, horloges électrique analogique, ordinateurs de bords, etc., qui mettent régulièrement à jour leurs informations. Si, après avoir installé votre antivol, il se déclenche sans raison,il peut être nécessaire de supprimer le capteur de tension. Dans ce cas, le niveau de protection est amoindri et ne dépend que du capteur de vibrations. Il peut alors être nécessaire d’augmenter

-8-

la sensibilité du capteur de vibrations. Pour ce faire, se référer à la section concernant le réglage des capteurs de chocs pour obtenir des résultats optimums.

BLANCENBOUCLE:

Le fil blanc en boucle commande le délai d’armement des capteurs de tension. Un délai est nécessaire avant l’armement des véhicules munis de circuits qui demeurent alimentés après que la clé de contact du véhicule soit tournée à la position d’arrêt. Si l’on coupe le fil blanc en boucle, le délai d’armement du détecteur de tension passera de 3 secondes à 5 minutes. Ce délai additionnel permet la fermeture de tous les circuits actifs du véhicule avant que le capteur de tension puisse détecter les baisses de tension. Cette caractéristique vous permettra d’armer l’appareil au moment même où vous sortez du véhicule. Lorsque les circuits électriques du véhicule se seront stabilisés, l’antivol s’armera complètement.

PROGRAMMATION DES ÉMETTEURS :

Votre antivol AA-929peut programmer un ou deux émetteurs dotés de la caractéristique d’apprentissage de code. Pour programmer les émetteurs, débrancher l’alimentation de l’antivol durant 10 secondes. Brancher l’alimentation et, dans les 10 secondes qui suivent, enfoncer le bouton N° 1 du premier émetteur à programmer. La sirène émettra un son strident, indiquant que l’émetteur a été programmé. Dans les cinq secondes suivant la programmation du premier émetteur, enfoncer le bouton N° 1 du deuxième émetteur à programmer. La sirène émettra un son strident, indiquant que le deuxième émetteur a été programmé.

-9-

REMARQUE : Si la batterie du véhicule est déconnectée ou que le courant alimentant l’antivol est temporairement coupé, les émetteurs NE SERONT PLUS programmés. Dans ce cas, il est nécessaire de programmer à nouveau les émetteurs pour faire fonctionner l’antivol. Pour reprogrammer les émetteurs, répéter la procédure ci-dessus.

FONCTIONNEMENT DE VOTRE ANTIVOL :

ARMEMENT:

1.Descendre de votre véhicule et fermer tous les points d’entrée.

2.Appuyer une fois sur le bouton N° 1 de votre émetteur de porte-clés.La sirène émettra une seule tonalité, indiquant

que le système est armé.

REMARQUE : Si l’on appuie sur le bouton d’armement deux fois dans les trois secondes qui suivent, l’appareil sera armé sans que le capteur de chocs ne fonctionne. Un son strident se fera alors entendre, suivi d’un son strident plus aigu, indiquant ce type d’armement. Lorsque l’antivol fonctionne selon ce mode, le capteur de tension est le seul moyen de détection. Lorsque vous armerez l’antivol à nouveau, le capteur de chocs fonctionnera.

DÉSARMEMENT:

1.En approchant de votre véhicule, appuyer une fois sur le bouton N° 1 de l’émetteur de porte-clés.La sirène émettra deux sons stridents, indiquant que le système est désarmé. Vous pouvez alors monter dans votre véhicule et le faire

fonctionner normalement.

REMARQUE : Si vous entendez quatre sons stridents lors du désarmement, ceci indique que le système s’est déclenché durant votre absence. Inspecter soigneusement votre véhicule pour vérifier s’il a été endommagé ou si l’on a forcé les points d’entrée.
