What’s New Responder LE is an advanced vehicle security and convenience system with two remote controls - a traditional one-way transmitter, and a 2-way Responder LE remote. Some main features of the Responder LE system Vehicle Security ▀ Fail-Safe Starter Kill ▀...
Long-time Clifford system users will notice the following differences: Responder LE uses a new rolling-code format we call SuperCode SuperCode assigns most functions to dedicated buttons, so many fea- tures work slightly different. The icons on the buttons are also differ- ent.
The AUX output numbering has changed Trunk Release To activate Trunk Release, press the button for 1.5 seconds. The Transmit LED will turn on immediately. When the Trunk Release output activates, the remote will play the ascending AUX multi-tone, and the AUX LED indicator will turn on. Important Note: The main function of the AUX button is to control the vehicle’s trunk or hatch release.
Using the system Warning! Safety first The following safety warnings must be observed at all times: Due to the complexity of this system, installation of this product must only be performed by an authorized Directed dealer. When properly installed, this system can start the vehicle via a com- mand signal from the remote control transmitter.
Use of this product in a manner contrary to its intended mode of operation may result in property damage, personal injury, or death. (1) Never remotely start the vehicle with the vehicle in gear, and (2) Never remotely start the vehicle with the keys in the ignition. The user must also have the neutral safety feature of the vehicle periodically checked, wherein the vehicle must not remotely start while the car is in gear.
Arming the system To arm the system, press the button on the remote control . The siren in the vehicle will “chirp” once and the parking lights will flash once. If the power door locks have been connected, the doors will lock.
While the system is armed ▀ Fail-Safe Starter Kill The starter is disabled by the system’s Fail-Safe starter kill. Alarm Responses The security system can generate two levels of alarm: Warn Away - Soft siren chirps and flashing parking lights. The purpose of Warn-Away is to warn a would-be thief next to your vehicle that the vehicle is protected, but in a manner that does not call attention to it from more than a few feet away.
Full Alarm response is triggered by: ▀ Heavier impact to the vehicle (detected by the Stinger Double-Guard shock sensor). ▀ Opening the trunk or hood. ▀ Opening a door: the Progressive Door Trigger feature will first sound the Warn-Away response, followed immediately by Full Alarm. ▀...
Modified Arming Modes The Responder LE gives you an unprecedented level of control over how it will protect your car. “Normal arming” means that all the Responder LE security features are active automatically. You can turn some secu- rity features off on a one-time basis. Turning off the Warn Away response After arming, you can turn off the Warn-Away response on a one-time basis.
Silent Mode 2 - Turning off the siren You can turn off the vehicle siren and flashing lights on a one-time basis, leaving the system’s paging feature as the only alarm response. Note: Call the police immediately if you witness a crime in prog- ress.
If you hear five chirps on disarming, the system was repeatedly triggered in your absence. Immediately look at the Status LED in the vehicle and count the number of flashes between pauses. This number is important, it tells what triggered your alarm. The door locks (if connected) will unlock, and the parking lights will flash.
Switch has been programmed to a new number of presses by your authorized dealer, that number should be indicated below. Override Switch Number ___________ Using the remote start Before using your Remote Start Read this user guide, including the warnings on page 24 . Ensure that the vehicle is parked in the open air and not in a garage.
Points to remember If the hood is open or is the brake pedal is pressed, the vehicle will not start using remote start. The remote starter shuts down: ▀ When the brake pedal is pressed ▀ The hood is opened ▀...
Manual transmission If the vehicle has manual transmission the proper steps must be fol- lowed before leaving the parked vehicle or the remote start feature is disabled. 1. Put the transmission in neutral. 2. Press on the vehicle’s foot brake. 3.
Timer mode To activate the runtime of the vehicles engine during remote start: 1. Press the button two-times and then 2. The vehicle will confirm with 4 fast parking light flashes. 3. The system will start every 3 hours until canceled by the brake, hood, or neutral safety shut-down wires.
Cabin temperature Using the Responder LE system, you have the ability to check the temperature inside the vehicle. Press the button once and then hold until the remote beeps, and then release. The LEDs on the remote will light up indicating what the temperature range of the vehicle is.
of time, but would like to leave the motor running and the climate controls on. To perform Valet take-over: Before turning off the engine, press and release within 3 sec- onds on the transmitter. Then wait a few seconds. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position (The engine will stay running).
Safety features This system has several important safety features to ensure proper operation of the motor and prevent accidental damage to the engine or its components. Starter anti-grind circuitry Whenever the vehicle is remote started, advanced anti-grind circuitry prevents the starter from engaging, even if the key is turned to the start position.
Diagnostics The microprocessor at the heart of your system is constantly monitor- ing all of the switches and sensors connected to it. It is designed to detect any faulty switches and sensors and prevent them from dis- abling the entire system. The microprocessor will also record and report any triggers that occurred during your absence.
Disarming Extra chirps heard when disarming the system are the Tamper Alert. If four chirps are heard when disarming the system, then the security system was triggered in your absence. If five chirps are heard when disarming the system, the system was triggered so many times that the Nuisance Protection®...
Table of zones A zone is represented by the number of LED flashes used by the system to identify a particular type of input. Standard input assignments are listed in the following table, along with spaces to write in any optional sensors or switches that have been installed.
Nuisance prevention® circuitry Your system has Directed’s Nuisance Prevention® Circuitry (NPC). It prevents annoying repetitive trigger sequences due to faulty door pin switches or environmental conditions such as thunder, jackhammers, airport noise, etc. For example: If the alarm triggers three times within a 60-minute period and each time the same sensor or switch triggers the alarm, NPC will interpret those triggers as false alarms.
Owner recognition Owner Recognition lets up to four users of the system have unique settings that meet their specific needs. It is almost like having four separate alarms in your vehicle, one for each user. This feature is only available to authorized dealers using the Bitwriter or Bitwriter 2 program tool.
Power Saver in Valet Mode: When the system enters Valet Mode the Status LED on the Responder LE control center illuminates steadily. If the vehicle is not used (ignition is not turned on) for a one hour pe- riod while the system is in Valet Mode, the status LED will shut off. If the system remains in Valet Mode, the LED will come back on the next time the ignition is turned on and then back off.
Programming options Your system has many custom programmable options. Some may require installation labor. Ask your authorized dealer for details. The following is a list of the programmable options, with the factory settings in Bold. ▀ Active arming (remote only) passive arming with or without locking the doors (automatic arming without locking the doors 30 seconds after the last door has been closed), or Auto Re-arm with or without locking the doors (Automatically arms 60 seconds after disarm if no...
If your installer is programming the security system with the Directed Bitwriter®, the full triggered response can be programmed for any duration ranging from 1 to 180 seconds. ▀ Siren tones and chirp volume: The output of the Revenger™Soft Chirp™ siren consists of six different tones in sequence. Any of these tones can be eliminated by a dealer, resulting in a unique, easily iden- tifiable siren sound.
Security & convenience expansions Listed below are some of the many expansion options available. Please consult your dealer for a complete explanation of all the options avail- able to you. Audio Sensor: Metal on glass, glass cracking, and breaking glass produce distinctive acoustic signatures. The 506T audio sensor uses a microphone to pick up sounds, then analyzes them with propri- etary acoustic software to determine if the glass has been struck.
and can roll them up automatically when the system is armed, roll them down, or both up and down. Ultrasonic Cabin Sensor: Using the 509U Ultrasonic cabin sensor pro- vides a field of protection inside the car to protect your belongings. ©...
