Owner's Manual

IMPORTANT

Installation of a sophisticated vehicle security system like the Enforcer is a very complicated procedure. For best results, please talk to your SECO-LARM dealer about professional installation.

NOTE: This alarm is designed to protect your entire car and its contents. But remember that every car is different, and it may be necessary to add sensors or accessories not included with this alarm system. Also, even though this alarm offers a high level of security and convenience, the level of protection and the features your alarm offers depend on how it was installed. Therefore, please ask your dealer to clearly explain the protection and features of your alarm after installation.

The Enforcer alarm system contains many innovative features and unique functions. Please read the operation manual carefully in order to understand all of the protection and convenience features that are offered.

AUTOMATIC DOOR LOCK/UNLOCK AND FLASHING LIGHTS

Your Enforcer offers the convenience of automatically locking and unlocking your car's doors and flashing the lights when the car is armed and disarmed. This may require the addition of certain optional accessories, and you should discuss with your professional SECO-LARM dealer about whether or not you wish to have them installed with your alarm.

This manual assumes you are using the power door lock control and flashing light features of your Enforcer. If you decide not to use these features, just disregard any references to them.

ARMING THE ENFORCER

If manual (active) arming is selected, the alarm will arm instantly after you press the transmitter's button #1. if automatic (passive) arming is selected, the alarm will arm 15 seconds after the last door is closed. For manual arming, a "CHIRP" should be heard and the parking lights will flash once after pushing the button #l, to signify that the alarm is armed. For automatic arming, a "CHIRP" should be heard and the parking lights will flash once after the last door is closed, to confirm that the alarm is arming. In either case, if you do not hear the "CHIRP" and the flashing of the parking lights, the alarm is informing you that a door has not been shut properly. This remarkable patented fail-safe feature stops you from walking away thinking your car is protected when it is not. (Your installer can turn this "CHIRP" off, if you desire.)

During the delay period for automatic arming, you can temporarily disarm the Enforcer simply by opening a car door. This lets you re-enter the car without having to first disarm the alarm. When finished, shut the door and arm the alarm manually or automatically as above. This process can be repeated as often as needed. Once the delay period has expired, the alarm will be fully armed and the red LED will begin to flash. Any attempt now to enter the car without first disarming the Enforcer will immediately trigger the alarm causing the siren to sound and the parking lights to flash simultaneously.

DISARMING THE ENFORCER

The Enforcer's patented 3-step disarming process in passive arming mode prevents accidental disarming. Unless all steps are carried out, the alarm will rearm itself. If automatic (passive) arming is used, first press the transmitter's #1 button, and the alarm will "CHIRP" twice, and the parking lights will flash twice. Then open a car door within 15 seconds. If a door is not opened, the alarm will rearm itself automatically. Finally, turn the ignition key to ON.

If manual (active) arming is used, simply press the transmitter's #1 button, and the alarm will "CHIRP" twice and the parking lights will flash twice. The Enforcer is fully disarmed and will not automatically rearm in manual (active) arming mode.

CAR LOCATOR AND TAMPER INDICATOR WHILE DISARM

Two long flashes show car's location when the alarm is disarmed by the transmitter. The Enforcer will notify the owner of any prior attempt to break into the car. If the alarm has been triggered, the lights will flash seven times (instead of twice) when the transmitter is used to disarm the alarm. Switching on the ignition will reset the memory.

EMERGENCY CALL FOR HELP (PANIC MODE)

You can sound the siren by turning off the ignition key and holding down transmitter button #l for three seconds. The siren will begin to sound, chasing away would-be attackers and alerting neighbors. However, the range of the transmitter may vary; see Trouble Shooting section, item 2.

QUIET MODE

Quiet Mode allows using the transmitter to temporarily arm or disarm the alarm without chirps. Pressing Button II and then, within 10 seconds, press button I, the alarm will either arm or disarm without chirping for that one time only. When you arrive home at night and try to arm your alarm without disturbing your neighbor, Quiet Mode lets you arm your car without the awakening siren chirps.

BUTTON II OF TRANSMITTER

The transmitter's button II can be used to control other accessories such as power trunk release. Your Enforcer itself has a second channel receiver built in for operating trunk releases, etc., but additional components, such as automotive relays and/or trunk releaser, may be required. Other kinds of applications may require additional receiver/s and special coding. You should discuss with your professional SECO-LARM dealer.

V.E.T. SWITCH & OPERATION CHART

Valet Mode is useful for unloading groceries, or servicing the car. To activate the valet mode, turn the ignition key on and push the V.E.T. switch once. Now the alarm will not arm. If you wish to deactivate the valet mode, turn the ignition on and push the V.E.T. switch once. Now the alarm can be armed.

Emergency disarm is a back-up method of disarming the alarm in case the transmitter is lost or stolen. To disarm the alarm, first open a door. The alarm will begin to sound. Turn on the key and then push the V.E.T. switch once.

Temporary disarm can be used to temporarily disarm the alarm if the alarm is programmed for automatic arming. This is useful for leaving the car for a short period of time such as during a stop at a gas station. To operate, turn off the key and push the V.E.T. switch once. If you change your mind and wish to leave the car for an extended time, press the transmitter button to arm the alarm. The temporary disarm feature is automatically disengaged once the ignition is turned on.

NOTE 1: AUTOMATIC ARMING - Alarm will arm automatically 15 seconds after the last door is shut. However, if you wish, you can arm the alarm manually after the last door is shut, by pressing the transmitter button once.

NOTE 2: Two ways to remove the "temporary disarm of automatic arming" feature:
(1) Close all doors and press the transmitter once. The alarm will "chirp" and arm.
(2) Turn the ignition key from off to on, then back to off. The alarm will go back to the "automatic arming" mode.

NOTE 3: When the Enforcer is fully armed, the LED will flash 0.5 second on, 1.5 seconds off. When in valet mode, the LED will flash 1.5 seconds on, 0.5 second off. This protects car in valet mode, as thief will see flashing LED and assume alarm is armed.

PATENTED, 2-STAGE, PRE-INTRUSION, ELECTROMAGNETIC SHOCK SENSOR

This Enforcer is equipped with a 2-stage, pre-intrusion, electromagnetic shock sensor. If the vehicle is lightly rapped, the first stage sensor will cause the alarm siren to "chirp". This feature provides a pre-intrusion warning to would-be thieves, a harder impact is made to the vehicle, the second stage sensor will activate the alarm and sound the siren.

PATENTED, 2-STAGE, PRE-INTRUSION, GLASS BREAK SENSOR (BUILT-IN)

If a window is tapped, the alarm will "chirp" to warn off would-be thieves. If the window is broken, however, the alarm will be triggered. The glass break sensor discriminates between environmental noises and the sound of breaking glass and comes with a remote microphone.

ALARM DURATION, SIREN AND FLASHING LIGHT

If the alarm is triggered, it will sound four 30-second cycles with a 10-second pause between cycles. For example, if the door is opened by an intruder, the alarm will automatically sound for 30seconds. If the door has not been shut before the end of the 30-second cycle, the alarm will continue to sound for three more cycles and then stop sounding. During this time the lights will flash in 40-second cycles with no pause. If any of the other sensors are triggered, or the same door is closed and then reopened, the process will begin again.

FOUR-FUNCTION LED

The alarm brain red LED has four useful functions:

MAIN POWER LOST WARNING

When alarm is fully armed, if the red +12VDC wire is cut between alarm brain and fuse, or disconnected fuse, the siren will sound for 4 seconds to warn intruders that the alarm is still protecting the car. If any other zone is triggered, the alarm will function as normal, with a full siren response.

RADIO PROTECTION

Your Enforcer provides a special option for protecting valuable electronic equipment in your vehicle, such as a CB, cellular phone or stereo. An attempt to remove a piece of protected equipment will trigger the alarm.

TROUBLE SHOOTING

Your Enforcer is an extremely reliable vehicle security system. In most cases, the rare operational difficulties are the result of a weak transmitter battery or an open car door. Below are guidelines to solving the majority of the problems you may experience. If after following these guidelines you have not found the problem, contact your professional installer immediately.

  1. No siren sound or "chirp" when the transmitter button is pressed for arming or disarming or held down for emergency call for help.
    1. Check that all doors and the hood and trunk are closed and the ignition key is removed from the switch.
    2. Replace the transmitter battery and check the clips.
  2. Transmitter works in some areas and not in others. This is probably due to excess RF activity in that area, and is temporary (usually just a short time and only while the car is in that area, but may be longer depending on the type of the activity). It will not affect the alarm in other areas.
  3. Alarm sounds for no apparent reason. Be sure that the transmitter button is not being held down too long or that something in your pocket or purse is not pressing against the transmitter button. The receiver may also be picking up interference from a nearby airport or military base, low-flying plane, or other source. Such interference is temporary.

NOTE: Under no circumstances should you make any repairs or adjustments to any component of the transmitter or receiver. Unauthorized repairs or adjustments to any components will void the warranty. However, you may change the transmitter battery by yourself, if needed, as shown below.

CHANGING THE TRANSMITTER BATTERY

. 1
  1. Unscrew the small screw from the transmitter's back.
  2. Replace the battery. MAKE SURE THE POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE BATTERY ENDS CORRESPOND CORRECTLY TO THE POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE BATTERY CLIPS.
  3. Replace the front cover, taking care not to break the LED.
  4. Replace the screw, turning it in tight enough to hold the case together, but not so tight that the case cracks.
