When the system arms, you will hear a short siren sound, or chirp, and see the parking lights flash once. If the vehicle’s power door locks are controlled by the system, the doors will lock.
Arming While Driving Your system can be armed while driving the vehicle! Simply press Button I on your transmitter while the vehicle is running. The system will chirp once and then once more to indicate that the ignition is on. The system will not respond to any input except the door triggers and the starter kill relay (if installed) will not be acti- vated.
Turn on the ignition. Push the Valet switch within 15 seconds. The system should now disarm. If it does not, you may have waited too long, so turn the igni- tion off and on and try again. Silent Mode To temporarily turn off the arm or disarm chirps, use Silent ModeTM. Simply press Button II briefly before arming or disarming, and the confirmation chirp(s) will be eliminated for that one operation only.

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. Over and Under Rev Protection The system monitors the engine speed and will shut the engine off if the RPMs rise above or fall below programmed levels.
Diagnostics The microprocessor at the heart of your system is constantly monitoring all of the switches and sensors connected to it. It detects any faulty switches and sensors and prevents them from disabling the entire system. The micro- processor will also record and report any triggers that occurred during your absence.
Table of Zones The zone number is the number of LED flashes used by the system to iden- tify that input. The standard input assignments are listed below, along with spaces to write in any optional sensors or switches you have had installed. If the Warn Away response is triggered, the LED will not report it.
High Frequency Your system transmits and receives at 434 MHz. This provides a cleaner spectrum with less interference and a more stable signal. Enjoy a phenome- nal increase in range - even in areas with high radio interference. Programming Options Programming options control what your system does during normal opera- tion, and require little or no additional parts.
• Forced passive arming on or off. If your system is programmed for passive arming and the forced passive arming feature has been programmed on, the system will passively arm after one hour, even if a protected entry has been left open. Forced passive arming ensures that the system will be armed if a door has accidentally been left ajar when leaving the vehicle.
