CODE ALARM

Owners manual

Features and Benefits of Your Security System

Automatic Starter Immobilization

The vehicle starter is automatically disabled when the security system is armed, or 20 seconds after you exit the vehicle. This feature protects your vehicle even if you forget to arm your security system.

All entrances protected

Opening any door or entrance protected by the security system triggers the alarm's 125db siren and flashes the vehicle parking lights.

Impact Detector

The impact detector senses any jolts or bumps associated with vehicle intrusion.

Personal Protection Feature (Panic)

The Panic feature sounds the siren and flashes the vehicle parking lights, bringing attention to your vehicle and surrounding area.

Interior Status Indicator

The bright-red warning light is an effective visual deterrent to a would-be thief.

Illuminated Entry

Vehicle courtesy lights turn on for one minute when the system is disarmed.

Remote Keyless Entry

Doors conveniently lock and unlock* when the alarm system is armed and disarmed.

Additional Immobilization Circuits (With Select Systems)

In addition to disabling the vehicle starter when the alarm system is armed, two additional circuits allow disabling of other vehicle circuits (such as the ignition), greatly enhancing security. (See your installer for details.)

Auxiliary Outputs**

Allows you to operate up to three convenience functions (such as trunk release or windows up/down) from your remote transmitter.

* If vehicle is equipped with power door locks and they are connected to the alarm system by your installer.

** May require additional connections, components, and/or charges. See your installer for details.

Using Your Remote Transmitter

. 1

The remote transmitters included with your security system are high-quality, durable instruments. Each transmitter has a moisture-resistant case and sealed rubber buttons to protect the internal circuitry and 12-volt alkaline battery. Also, each transmitter utilizes Rolling Code technology to deter code-grabbing devices. Your security system has the ability to erate from up to four (4) remote transmitters.

Arming the Security System

To arm the system, exit the vehicle, close all doors, then press and release the ARM button. The siren will "chirp" twice and the parking lights will flash twice, indicating the system is armed. The doors will also lock at this time (if equipped and connected). The status indicator will turn on. After 25 seconds, it will blink steadily, once per second.

If the siren chirps and the parking lights "flash only once, this indicates that the :system has detected that the vehicle courtesy light is on, or that an entrance is not closed securely. Check to see that all vehicle entrances are closed securely. Once all entrances are secured (and the courtesy light is off), the system will chirp / flash again. The system is now fully armed.

Disarming the Security System

To disarm the system, press and release the DISARM button. The siren will chirp and the parking lights will flash once, and the doors will unlock (if equipped and connected). The courtesy light will turn on for 1 minute, or until the vehicle is started.

Trip Identification

If the siren chirps four times when disarming, this indicates that the system was triggered in your absence. (The status indicator will also flash rapidly.) Perform the following operation to determine the protected zone that triggered the system:

1 chirp Shock Sensor
2 chirps Other Sensor
3 chirps Door or other Entrance
4 chirps Ignition was turned on
Disabling the Impact Detector Lite-Touch Feature

Your security system is equipped with a lite-touch impact detector, which causes the system to emit a warning chirp if light impact to the vehicle is detected. It may be necessary at times to temporarily disable the lite-touch feature, especially in areas where severe vibration can cause false alarms.

Activating the Trunk Release Output

To activate the Trunk Release output, press and hold the DISARM button. The security system will disarm if it is armed, and the vehicle trunk / hatch will open.

Personal Protection (Panic) Alarm

Pressing any two buttons together on the remote transmitter activates the Panic feature, sounding the siren and flashing the parking lights. Panic is designed to bring attention to the vehicle and surrounding area, warding off a would-be intruder. Press any button on the remote transmitter to turn off the Panic alarm.

Please see the System Maintenance Section for these Additional Topics:

When Your Security System is Triggered

The security system will trigger if one of the following events occurs while it is armed:

Once the alarm is triggered, the alarm sounds its 125db siren and flashes the vehicle parking lights for 30 seconds. The system will then re-arm, awaiting the next intrusion attempt.

The Interior Status Indicator

The Status Indicator is a high-intensity red light mounted in a visible location on the vehicle dashboard. This red light gives a visual indication of the alarm system's state of operation. Note the chart below:

If the Status Indicator is... ....then the Security System
Off is Disarmed
Flashing Slowly (about once per second) is Fully Armed, In Valet Mode, or Automatic Immobilization
Flashing Very Quickly was triggered in your absence (see Trip ID)
On (not flashing) is waiting to arm

Valet Mode

Valet Mode is used to temporarily prevent the alarm system from automatically disabling the vehicle starter (and ignition, if the optional vehicle immobilizer is connected), and stop the alarm from arming when the Automatic Arming option is enabled on your security system. This is useful when servicing your vehicle.

To enter Valet mode:

To exit Valet mode, press any button on the remote transmitter.

Note: As a security measure, the security system will automatically exit Valet mode if the vehicle ignition is turned on and off more than five (5) times.

System Maintenance

Changing the Remote Transmitter Battery

The 12-volt alkaline battery supplied in your remote transmitter should last approximately one year, depending on usage. When the battery begins to weaken, you will notice a decrease in range, or the distance from your vehicle that your remote transmitter will operate. Follow the instructions below to change the remote transmitter battery.

About Transmitter Range...
.

The receiver inside your vehicle security system and the remote control transmitters are designed together to have an average operating range of 50 feet during ideal conditions. Although at times you may experience range greater than that, there may be occasions when range is less than normal. Atmospheric conditions or interference from other RF-emitting devices can effectively reduce transmitter range.

Emergency Disarm Procedure

If your remote transmitter fails to operate, the system can be disarmed using the alarm code on the front of this manual. Follow the procedure below:

  1. Enter the vehicle. The alarm will sound when the door is opened.
  2. Insert the key into the ignition and turn to the ON position. Do not start the vehicle. The status indicator will begin flashing for Code Entry.
  3. Look at the first number in the code Allow the status indicator to flash the corresponding number of times as the first number in the code.
  4. After the status indicator has flashed the corresponding number of times, turn the vehicle ignition off. The first number has been entered.
  5. Turn the ignition back to the ON position The status indicator will again begin flashing. Repeat the procedure in steps 3 and 4, this time using the second number in the code.
  6. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for the third and fourth numbers in the code.
  7. After the fourth number has been entered correctly, the alarm will disarm.

Note: If you enter an incorrect digit, turn the vehicle ignition off, then on. When the status indicator begins to flash, re-enter the code from the beginning.
