Model APS 685 Installation Manual 4 Channel Remote Start / Keyless Entry System Installation Instructions This Unit Is Intended For Installation In Vehicles With 12 Volt Negative Ground Electrical Systems, Gasoline or Diesel With True Tach Reference And Automatic Transmissions Only.
The APS-685 Remote Start/Keyless Entry System is designed to be used with Automatic Transmission Vehicles Only! The unit provides a selectable ignition control that allows a number of selectable timed outputs for glow plug pre- heat which may be required for certain diesel vehicles, (see selectable feature #11). If the diesel engine has a instant fire, (no glow plug pre-heat system), feature #11 should remain in the default Gasoline mode setting.
Drill a 1/4" 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, and on/off face plate. It is suggested that the switch be oriented to allow the on position to be up toward the driver and the off position to be down or away from the driver.
NOTE: This wire must be connected to the vehicle side of the starter cut relay (if present). For the electrical neutral switch configuration, this connection must be made between the starter inhibit relay, (if present) and the neutral safety switch as shown in the following diagram. Failure to connect this wire to the ignition switch side of the of the neutral safety switch can result in personal injury and property damage.
Black wire; see Brown w/ Black tracer wire. BROWN Wire: Positive Inhibit Input 1 Any time + 12 Volts is applied to the Brown wire, the Remote Starter will stop operating, even if the signal is received from the transmitter.
BROWN w/ BLACK Tracer Wire: Positive Inhibit Input 2 Any time + 12 Volts is applied to the Brown w/ Black tracer wire, the Remote Starter will stop operating, even if the signal is received from the transmitter. If the brake light switch in the vehicle switches + 12 Volts to the brake light circuit, connect the Brown w/ Black trace wire to the output of the brake light switch.
5. Connect the previously selected resistor from terminal #87 to the second (#2) wire (as shown). NOTE: The above information and following diagram is for the GM VATS system only. For GM PASS LOCK System you will require the Audiovox AS-PASS II Module.
General Motors VATS By-Pass Diagram DARK GREEN/ORANGE Wire: Tach Sensor Input This wire will continually monitor the engine tach rate while the unit is under power of the Remote Start module. This wire will be routed to the vehicle ECM tach input or through the firewall into the engine compartment and connect to the negative side of the ignition coil.
factory door unlock switch to the factory door unlock relay. See Below For Wiring Detail. 3 Wire Ground Switched Door Lock/Unlock Wiring Detail 3 Wire Ground Switched 2 Step Door Locks In this application, the red wire provides a ground pulse during locking, or the pulsed ground lock output. Connect the red wire to the wire that provides a low current ground signal from the factory door lock switch to the factory door lock control relay.
3 Wire Positive Switched 2 Step Door Locks The green wire provides a positive pulse during locking, or the pulsed + 12 volt lock output. Connect the green wire to the wire that provides a low current positive signal from the factory door lock switch to the factory door lock control relay.
These applications require the use of additional components which may include relays, fixed resistors, or for convenience, the AS 9159 Door Lock Interface. Refer to the AUDIOVOX Door Lock Wiring Supple- ment and or the Audiovox fax back service for information on your particular vehicle for properly connect- ing to these types of circuits.
2 seconds to activate the remote starter. WARNING: Connecting the dark blue wire to the high current switched output of the trunk release circuits and some remote start trigger inputs, will damage the control module.
Dark Blue/Black and Green/White - 2 Pin Input/Output Harness: Dark Blue/Black Trace Wire: External Trigger Input The Dark Blue/Black trace wire allows the remote start unit to be activated from an external source. The intent of this wire is to allow the unit to be controlled from a "POSSE/CAR-LINK" paging system or similar device.
5. Use channel one button on the transmitter to advance to the feature that you want to change. EXAMPLE If you need to change programmable feature number 3, press and release button 1 on the transmitter 3 times in succession. The parking lights will flash 3 times confirming that selected feature 3 can now be programmed.
3. Connect the Yellow wire to a +12 volt ignition 1 source. This wire will have +12 volts with the ignition in the on and start position and have 0 volts with the ignition in the off position. 4. Connect the Green wire to the (Green) or (Orange/Green) tach input of the Audiovox remote start unit.
If the unit fails this test, recheck your enable switch connection to the Ground and the Black/White wire of the Audiovox Remote Start Unit. If you have a plug in enable switch, check that the two pin connector is firmly seated in the mating connector on the control module.
4000 series diode. Shown is a typical GM Park/Neutral ECM input circuit. To connect the Audiovox remote start unit to the GM Park / Neutral ECM input: 1. Locate the Orange / Black reference wire in the "C2" connector found at the ECM in GM B Body vehicles or, locate the equivalent reference wire in the vehicle you are installing the Audiovox Remote Start Unit in.
E. Connect the cathode (striped) side of a 4002 series diode to this same wire, and connect the (non striped) side to the negative shut down safety wire (Gray / Black) of the Audiovox Remote Start Unit. F. Connect terminal 86 of the relay to a fused +12 volt constant battery source.
Retest by following the steps outlined in the NEUTRAL START SAFETY TEST shown in this manual. COMPLETING THE INSTALLATION: After you have confirmed the operation of the Audiovox Remote Start unit and tested all the safety fea- tures of the system: 1.
