5. Door control output connector (CON 3)➃empty➂empty➁WhiteLock,Unlock output➀YellowLock,Unlock outputDoor lock systems vary by vehicle and manufacturer. In order to connect the door locks,some vehicle will require addition parts such as actuators, resistors, or relays. For helpidentifying the type of lock system in your vehicle please refer to our vehicle wiringinformation on our website at www.designtech-intl.comCaution: improper connection of unit to door lock system may causedamage to unit or vehicle. Type A and Type C systems may looksimilar, but if the unit is connected to a Type C configured as a Type A.Damage will result. Always use fuses when using external relays. Wesuggest a maximum of 15A fuse.Type A : PositiveThis system supplies a 12V pulse from the factory switch to the factory relays. IF youmeasure the resistance between the lock/unlock wires and ground WITHOUT pressing thedoor lock switch the resistance should be more than 50 ohms. If the resistance is less youmay be on the wrong wire(s) or you may have a reverse polarity system. SEE REVERSEPOLARITY. For positive trigger systems, connect the unit’s outputs to the Lock/Unlockwires of the vehicle. No additional parts should be needed.14 v4.2

Type B: NegativeThis system supplies ground pulse from the switch to the factory relays. The correctwires will measure some voltage on them when you are not pressing the lock/unlockswitch. Pressing the switch will cause the voltage on the correct wires to fall to zerovolts. Connect the lock/unlock wires from the unit to the described wires in the vehicle.No additional parts should be required.Type C: Reverse PolarityReverse Polarity. In the vehicle, the correct lock/unlock wires will show continuityto ground (less than 50 ohms) when the lock/unlock switch is not being pressed.The same wires will show 12 volts when the lock/unlock button is pressed.Connect as per the following diagram.v4.215

Type D: After Market Actuators■ If the car has no power door lock system, actuators will need to be installed.■I■■f the car has power door locks, but no push button switch (centrallocking) anactuatormay need to be installed in the drivers door only.Central locks generally only lock/unlock when the drivers door is locked/unlockedwith the key or the lock button on the driver door is moved. Centrallock have no motor in the driver door.Adding an actuator will work for central locking and vacuum type systems. Vacuumlock systems are common in some European vehicles.Type E: Vacuum pump type■ Usually the door locks are locked and unlocked by using the key or “plunger” on a door- often working only from the drivers door. These types of systems are found mostlyin German cars.■There are two ways to lock/unlock the door of a vacuum system - by using an actuator asper “Type D” or by following the diagram below.16 v4.2

Type F: One Wire SystemThis system sends for unlock, and becomes open for lock. The system requiresone external relay.v4.217

Once you have completed thelearning of all remote controls, simply turn off the ignition and close the door.❃ Note Door pin wire (CON 7) must be connected and both IGN #1 and ACC(CON 1) must see + 12 Volts.v4.223

11. Programming for TACH / Voltage SenseProgramming for TachIf the Alternator/Tachometer input wire is connected to the Tach wire (negative side ofthe coil), you must perform the steps below. It is best to perform the programming afterthe engine has been given some time to warm up and the RPM level has stabilized at itsnormal position. Failure to warm up the engine and allow the RPM to stabilize may resultin later problems starting from remote control . NOTE: The alternator/Tach wire MUST beconnected AS PER PAGE 19 for the unit to properly function.Step 1● Start the warmed engine andopen the door.Step 2Open the door.Start engine.●Place the program DIP switch to ON(or open the hood).Step 3DIPSwitchManual/AutomaticLoopPress Valet mode buttonfor more than 4 secondsSiren chirps once.● Press and hold the Valet buttonfor more than 4 seconds tostart measuring the frequency.If the process is completed,the car makes a tone, and thefunction ends.● 4 tones or more: Signal error.Step 4DIPSwitch● Place the DIP switch at OFFposition (or close hood) .Manual/AutomaticLoopBecause the measured value is saved in the permanent memory of the unit, thetach is saved even if power is removed.Note: Return the DIP switch to OFF after programming.❃ Note door pin wire (CON 7) must be connected and IGN #1 and ACC (CON 1)must see +12 Volts.

12. Timing ConfigurationTiming configuration allows the time adjustments of various features such as the operationtime for door locks, crank time for the starter motor, etc. Initially, the unit operated withthe default values as shown in the chart below. The default values are adequatefor most vehicles. However, if it is not working properly, the timing mayneed to be configured to appropriate values. The changed timing is savedin the permanent memory of both the remote control and the unit - and isstored until the values are changed again.Button A: to transmit data after completing the configuration.Button B and C: to move menu or change the timing.Button D: to select menu or finish the timing configuration.For data transmission after completing the configuration of the unit, the ignition key shouldbe in the on position, and the hood and door should be open.Timing ConfigurationWithStaterFunctionLCD DisplayDefault ValueConfigurableRange12Door LockDoor Unlock0.8 SecondsOnce0.1~9.9Seconds3Auxiliary Output 14Auxiliary Output 20.8 SecondsPulse0.1~9.9Seconds67TrunkPrecaution Mode WaitingTime After Closing Door0.8 Seconds10 Seconds0.1~9.91~99 Seconds8IGN ON Waiting Time2 Seconds1~10 Seconds910Cranking TimeExitTACH:4 pulse 1~10 SecondsAlter :0.4 secExit without transmitting changed data(data is saved in the remote control)If the desired value is the same as the default, configuration is not required.When the configuration is completed, press button A to transmit the changed datato the unit and finish the configuration.26 v4.2

12 - 1,2 Door lock and unlockOne output pulse (default)will lock/unlock most vehicles. Some vehicle may have an doorlock system requiring two pulses - where the first pulse disarms an OEM alarm and thesecond pulse opens the doors, or the first pulse may unlock the driver door while thesecond pulse unlocks all doors. These type door lock systems are especially common onEuropean vehicles. In such a case, change the configuration to two pulses. The configuredoutput is applied to both lock/unlock and alarm re-arm/alarm disarm.12 - 3,4,5 Auxiliary output 1and 2Select the type of pulse the auxiliary outputs provide. You can use the Auxiliary outputsto control an rear defrost, windows, sunroof, neon, etc. “Pulse” mode will send a negativesignal for the configured length of time, while “latched” mode will provide a continuousoutput until the remote control button is pressed again.12 - 6 TrunkControls the length of the trunk output pulse. This is especially useful to control a deviceother than the factory trunk release.12 - 7 Alarm mode waiting time after closing the doorThis control the length of time from locking the doors until the alarm is “set.” If your vehiclehas a delayed dome light this feature will prevent the alarm from triggering because thedome light did not turn off fast enough. This feature also allows you time to grab somethingfrom the trunk or a passenger door without having the alarm trigger. The default is 20seconds waiting time; in most cases you will not need to adjust this time.28 v4.2

12 - 8 IGN 1 ON waiting timeYou can configure IGN 1 ON waiting time that determines the time between turning IGN ONand operating the starter motor when the brain attempts engine start.● Note - If the vehicle is diesel and the warm-up sense wire is connected, thestarter motor is operated when the warm-up sensor detects the glow plugs- regardless of this setting. Otherwise, the vehicle will crank when theprogrammed time has expired.12 - 9 Starter motor operation time● when connected in alternator/voltage sense mode there is no need to changethis time if the vehicle starts consistently. If the start overcranks, reduce the time.If the start does not crank long enough increase the time. Adjustable from 0.1to 1 second.● when it connected in TACH mode this setting controls the number of tach pulsesthe unit must see before releasing the starter. A lower setting will fine tune the unitto disengage the start earlier, while a higher value will cause the unit to crank thevehicle longer. Adjustable from 1 to 10 tach pulses.12 - 10 ExitThis menu is used to finish the configuration without transmitting the changed configurationto the brain. The changed values are saved in the permanent memory of the remote control,and you can transmit the values later.● Note - The values must be saved to the brain for them to be active. To save to thebrain press the “A” button.v4.229
