Timed Start Program:
The Remote Start unit has the ability to start the vehicle automatically at timed intervals.
This feature is useful in extremely cold climates where starting the engine is the only means to keep the battery charged and fluids warm.
The operator has the option to have the unit start every 2 or 4 hours for a maximum of 48 hours. Factory preset is to start at 4 hour intervals.
To select 2 or 4 hour automatic start timer:
- Start by holding the push button switch On.
- While holding the push button switch, turn the ignition On then Off.
- Within 10 seconds of turning the ignition Off, release and then push On and release the push button switch 2 times holding it On the second time until the siren and/or lights flash and chirp 2 times indicating that the 2 hour start interval has successfully been set.
- Within 10 seconds of turning the ignition switch Off (step 2), release and then push On and then release the push button switch 4 times holding it On the fourth time until the siren and/or lights flash and chirp 4 times indicating that the 4 hour start interval has successfully been set.
Note: Once selected, 2 or 4, this timer interval will remain in memory until it is manually changed. To change, the above sequence will have to be followed.
