■ cle 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. This testing should be performed by an authorized DEI dealer in accordance with the Safety Check outlined in the product installation guide. If the vehicle starts in gear, cease remote start operation immediately and consult with the authorized DEI dealer to fix the problem. After the remote start module has been installed, contact your authorized dealer to have him or her test the remote start module by performing the Safety Check outlined in the product installation guide. If the vehicle starts when performing the Neutral Safety Shutdown Circuit test, the remote start unit has not been properly installed. The remote start module must be removed or the installer must properly reinstall the remote start system so that the vehicle does not start in gear. All installations must be performed by an authorized DEI dealer. OPERATION OF THE REMOTE START MODULE IF THE VEHICLE STARTS IN GEAR IS CONTRARY TO ITS INTENDED MODE OF OPERATION. OPERATING THE REMOTE START SYSTEM UNDER THESE CONDITIONS MAY RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE OR PERSONAL INJURY. YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY CEASE THE USE OF THE UNIT AND SEEK THE ASSISTANCE OF AN AUTHORIZED DEI DEALER TO REPAIR OR DISCONNECT THE INSTALLED REMOTE START MODULE.

You can arm the system by pressing of your transmitter for one second. When the system arms, you will hear a short siren sound, or chirp, and see the parking lights flash once. If the power door locks are controlled by the system, the doors will also lock. While the system is armed, the status LED will flash approximately twice per second, indicating that the system is actively protecting your vehicle. If you hear a second chirp after arming and note that the status LED is flashing in groups, see the Diagnostics Section of this guide. This extra chirp is called Bypass Notification. The system can be programmed to arm itself automatically (called passive arming). If the system is programmed for passive arming, it will automatically arm 30 seconds after the ignition is turned off and the system detects that you have left the vehicle by opening and closing a door. Whenever the system is in its 30-second passive arming countdown, the status LED will flash twice as fast as it does when the system is armed. At the 20-second point of the countdown, the siren will chirp to indicate that the system is about to arm. At the 30-second point, the parking lights will flash to indicate that the system is armed. NOTE: If any protected entry point (such as a door or a switch-protected trunk or hood) is open, the system will not passively arm (unless forced passive arming is programmed on. See Programming Options section.) Additionally, each time a sensor is triggered during the arming countdown, the 30-second countdown starts over. Arming your security system protects your vehicle as follows: ■ Arming Light impacts trigger the Warn Away ® signal. When triggered, the siren chirps and the parking lights flash for a few seconds. 9 © 2000 Directed Electronics, Inc.
