INSTALLATION OF THE MAJOR COMPONENTS:

CONTROL MODULE:

Select a mounting location inside the passenger compartment (up behind the dashboard). The mounting location selected must be within 24" of the ignition switch wiring harness to allow connection of the 6 pin main wiring harness.

Be certain that the chosen location will not interfere with proper operation of the vehicle. Avoid mounting the module to or routing the wiring around the steering shaft/column, as the module or wiring may wrap around or block the steering wheel preventing proper control of the vehicle. Secure the module in the chosen location using cable ties or screws as necessary.

Do Not Mount The Module In The Engine Compartment, as it is not waterproof.

DASH MOUNTED LED:

The small LED included in the kit will serve as a visual indicator of the system’s status and provide a visual deterrent to a potential thief. The LED also provides important feed back information during the transmitter and feature program modes. The LED should be installed in the dash in an area highly visible so that it may be seen from the driver's seat as well as from outside the vehicle. Inspect behind the chosen location to insure that the drill will not penetrate any existing factory wiring or fluid lines. Carefully drill a 1/4" hole in the desired location and pass the connector end of the LED through the hole and toward the control module. Press the LED firmly into place until it is fully seated in the mounting hole.

THE RECEIVER/ANTENNA ASSEMBLY:

The Superheterodyne Receiver Antenna Assembly provided with this unit allows routing from below the dash board for maximum operating range. Choose a location above the belt line (dashboard) of the vehicle for best reception. Special considerations must be made for windshield glass as some newer vehicles utilize a metallic shielded window glass that will inhibit or restrict RF reception. In these vehicles, route the antenna toward a rear window location for best reception. Secure the antenna with double stick tape provided. After securing the antenna with tape, we advise also securing a section of the antenna cable to a fixed support. This will prevent the antenna from dropping down in case the double stick tape is exposed to extreme heat which may loosen it's gummed surface. Route the connector toward the control module using caution not to pinch the cable as this will cause poor or no RF reception to the control module.

VALET/PROGRAM/MANUAL OVERRIDE SWITCH :

Select a mounting location that is easily accessible to the operator of the vehicle. It is not necessary to conceal the switch. However, concealment is recommended as it offers a higher level of security. The switch can be mounted to the lower dash panel in the driver's area. Inspect behind the chosen location to insure that adequate clearance is allowed for the body of the switch, and also that the drill will not penetrate any existing factory wiring or fluid lines. Drill a 9/32" hole in the desired location and mount the switch by passing it through the panel from the underside. Secure the switch using the nut, star washer. Route the switch's connector toward the control module.

NOTE: During the program sequence, there are times when this switch and the ignition switch will be used simultaneously. We recommend that the pushbutton switch be mounted on the left side of the ignition switch to facilitate this operation.

HOOD PIN SWITCH:

The pin switch included in this package are intended for protecting the hood area of the vehicle. In all cases, the switch must be mounted to a grounded metal surface. When the pin switch is activated, (hood/trunk open), it will supply a ground to the input wire activating the alarm. In addition, the hood switch is required for the safety shut down of

the remote start unit. If the vehicle is being worked on, this hood switch prevents the remote start activation even if the RF command to start is issued. This switch must be installed in all applications. Failure to do so may result in personal injury or property damage.

Mount the switch in the hood locations away from water drain paths. If necessary, a bracket may be used to move the switch away from rain gutters or allow mounting to the firewall behind the hood seal. In both cases the switch must be set up to allow the hood to depress the switch at least 1/4 inch when the hood is closed and fully extended when the hood is opened. For direct mounting, a 1/4 inch hole must be drilled. Carefully check behind the chosen location to insure the drill will not penetrate any existing factory wiring or fluid lines.

Drill a 1/4" hole in the desired location and thread the pin switch into it using a 7/16" nut driver or deep well socket. If using the mounting bracket, first secure the bracket to the

desired location and secure the pin switch in the pre-threaded mounting bracket hole.

DO NOT PLUG THE SIX PIN MAIN POWER HARNESS OR THE MULTI PIN INPUT / OUTPUT HARNESS INTO THE CONTROL MODULE UNTILALL CONNECTIONS TO THE VEHICLE HAVE BEEN MADE. AFTER SELECTING YOUR TARGET WIRES AS DEFINED BELOW, DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE FROM THE VEHICLE

BATTERY PRIOR TO MAKING ANY CONNECTIONS.

Note: Do not remove the fuse holders from this wire harness. Fuses must be used and located as close as possible to the power

source for adequate protection of the vehicle.

WIRING THE 6 PIN MAIN POWER HARNESS Connector “C”:

Fused RED w/ WHITE TRACE WIRE: + 12 volt Battery 1 Source 20A Max

Locate the vehicle battery wire(s) at the ignition switch. Verification: These wires will register voltage in all positions of the ignition switch. Connect the Red w/White wire to the vehicle's battery

wire. This wire provides power for the control circuit as well as the ignition 1 and ignition 2 relays. Fused RED WIRE: + 12 Volt Battery 2 Source 20A Max

Locate the vehicle battery wire(s) at the ignition switch. Verification: These wires will register voltage in all positions of the ignition switch. Connect the Red wire to the vehicle's battery wire. This wire provides power for the start relay and the accessory relay.

YELLOW Wire: Starter Output

Careful consideration for the connection of this wire must be made to prevent the vehicle from starting while in gear. Understanding the difference between a mechanical and an electrical Neutral Start Switch will allow you to properly identify the circuit and select the correct installation method. In addition you will realize why the connection of the safety wire is required for all mechanical switch configurations.

Failure to make this connection properly can result in personal injury and property damage. In all installations it is the responsibility of the installing technician to test the remote start unit and ensure that the vehicle cannot start via RF control in any gear selection other than park or neutral.

In both mechanical and electrical neutral start switch configurations, the connection of the Yellow wire will be made to the low current start solenoid wire of the ignition switch harness. This wire will have +12 volts when the ignition switch is turned to the start (crank) position

only. This wire will have 0 volts in all other ignition switch positions.

BLUE Wire: Ignition 1 Output

Connect this wire to the ignition 1 wire from the ignition switch. This wire will show +12 volts when the ignition key is turned to the "ON" or "RUN" and the "START" or CRANK" positions, and will have 0 volts when the key is turned to the "OFF" and "ACCESSORY" positions.

GREEN Wire: Ignition 2 Output

Connect this wire to the ignition 2 wire from the ignition switch. This wire will show + 12 volts when the ignition key is turned to the "ON" or "RUN" position and is some cases the "START" or CRANK" position. This wire will show 0 volts when the key is turned to the "OFF" and "ACCESSORY" positions.

NOTE: See programming information (Bank 3 Selection # 6) concerning this wire to allow output during the "START" mode.

VIOLET Wire: Accessory Output

Connect this wire to the Accessory wire from the ignition switch. This wire will show + 12 volts when the ignition switch is turned to the "ACCESSORY" or "ON" and "RUN" positions, and will show 0 volts when the key is turned to the "OFF" and "START" or "CRANK" positions.

Wiring The 2 Pin Door Lock/Unlock Harness Connector “B”:

The Red & Green Door Lock/Unlock output wires provide a pulsed ground output to control the vehicle door lock / unlock circuits. The output of these wires has a maximum switching capability of 250 mA. Many vehicles today have factory door lock relays which can be connected directly to these outputs, however always confirm that the factory relays in your particular vehicle do not exceed the rated 250mA output of the units door lock/unlock circuit. Plug the 2 pin connector of the door lock/unlock harness into the mating connector shell of the control module. Determine the door lock circuit of the vehicle you are working on and wire according to the diagrams shown.
