|Adjusting the Sensitivity of the Shock Sensor:
Important: Setting the sensitivity of the shock sensor too high will cause false alarms. A substantial amount of force is required to actually break automotive glass, and the shock sensor should be set accordingly.
Before proceeding with the adjustment, verify that all screws securing the siren control module to the bracket, and securing the bracket to the vehicle, are securely tightened.
To adjust the shock sensor:
- Locate and remove the small rubber plug on the back of the siren control module.
- Gently turn the adjustment screw fully counter-clockwise, then clockwise approximately 1/8 of a turn. Do not over turn this screw, as maximum rotation is approximately 270o. You should stop applying pressure as soon as you feel a slight amount of resistance.
- Close the hood, arm the alarm (ARMED or 1 CHIRP), and allow six seconds for the shock sensor to stabilize.
- Firmly strike the front bumper of the vehicle with the side of the closed fist, considering the amount of force required to break a window.
CAUTION: Never perform this test on the vehicle's glass, as you may break a window.
- If the alarm did not sound, or if only the warning chirps were activated, then the sensitivity will need to be increased. Disarm the alarm, and open the hood to gain access to the siren control module.
- Gently turn the adjustment screw approximately 1/8 turn clockwise (increasing sensitivity), and repeat the test.
- Repeat this procedure until a firm strike causes the alarm to trigger, and a less forceful impact causes the alarm to sound the warning chirps.
- When the adjustment is set, replace the rubber plug on the back of the siren module.
|Arming the System:
- Exit the vehicle and close and lock all doors.
- Press and release the larger arming button o the transmitter. The system will respond with one single chirp (armed) and one flash.
- The red dash mounted LED will begin to flash, and after 6 seconds, the shock sensing feature of the system will be activated. The voltage sensing circuit will begin its countdown, and after three minutes, opening a light activated door will trigger the alarm.
- If the system has been installed using the automatic passive arming feature, then 60 seconds after switching the ignition key off, the alarm will automatically arm providing the hood and trunk lids are closed. During the 60 second automatic arming cycle, the dash mounted LED will flash rapidly.
|Protection While the System is Armed:
- Opening a door (or any light activated entry point) will cause the alarm to immediately sound for the complete 60 second alarm cycle. If the relay was installed to flash the parking lamps, then the parking lights will flash on and off during the 60 second alarm cycle.
- If the relay was installed to disable the vehicle's starter then any unauthorized attempt to start the vehicle will be prevented.
- While the system is armed, the red dash mounted LED will constantly flash, discouraging any would be thieves.
- Any light impact to the vehicle glass or body panels will cause the system to immediately sound the warning chirps, discouraging any further attempts to enter the vehicle.
- Any forceful impact to the vehicle will cause the sy
