|Disarming the System:||
|While the System is Sounding:||If during a triggered state, you wish to shut off the siren without disarming your security system, simply press and release any transmitter button other than the disarm button. This action will turn off the siren yet leave the vehicle fully armed and protected.|
|Intrusion Warning Signals:||
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.
These intrusion warning indicators are stored in the system's memory, and will only be erased when the ignition key is turned on.
The valet switch allows you to temporarily disable the remote starting functions of the system. This is recommended when the vehicle is being serviced.
To use valet mode:
Note: Always remember to return the system to normal operation. This will ensure that the vehicle remains protected at all times.
|Eliminating the Normal Arm/Disarm Chirps:||
You can eliminate the chirps selectively any time you arm or disarm the system, if the feature has been activated, simply by holding the ARM or DISARM button for two seconds. If you find the normal arming and disarming chirps annoying, they can be turned off permanently, eliminating the need to hold the ARM / DISARM button for 2 seconds.
To do this:
Note: Whenever the chirps are bypassed, the 4-chirp intrusion indicator and 3 chirp defective zone indicator will always operate. Since these are important warnings to you that something has happened, they cannot be eliminated.
Note: Your system must be programmed by the installation center to enable this feature.

Also if any transmitter button other than the Lock or Unlock button is pressed and released, the Panic mode will be turned off immediately.
The normal function of this transmitter button will be suspended during the Panic sounding period.
During the panic mode, the Lock and Unlock buttons can be used to lock and unlock the doors, (if the option is installed), however once the unlock/disarm button is pressed, the vehicle's starter inhibit device, (where installed) will be disabled allowing the vehicle to start.
NOTE: While in the Panic mode, pressing and releasing the Lock or Unlock buttons will, if the option is installed, lock and unlock the doors respectively.
While in the panic mode, anytime the Unlock button is pressed, the panic feature will continue for the allotted 30 seconds, however, the security system will be disarmed allowing the vehicle to start.
|RF Shock Sensor Mode Selection:||
The way in which your alarm system reacts to threatening vibrations, created by attempts to enter the vehicle by breaking a window, is adjustable by the transmitter immediately after arming. There are 4 modes of operation that can be selected by the operator:
Note: Setting the stage of the shock sensor will be effective for one arming cycle only. Once the system has been disarmed, the very next arming cycle will cause the sensor to default to the normal operation stage.
To change or adjust the shock sensor, press and release the ARM button of you key chain transmitter and then within 2 seconds do one of the following:
While under control of the remote start the system can be programmed to allow you to shunt the shock sensor from the transmitter. If the system has been such programmed, simply press the lock button of your key chain transmitter anytime during the remote start cycle. The shock sensor will be shunted for the entire run cycle and will resume normal operation after the remote start unit shuts off.
Check with your installation center to determine if this feature has been programmed into your system.
