There are two different ways to arm your alarm. Tell your dealer which is best for you:
Turn your ignition off. Close all the doors. Then press transmitter button #1. If the siren chirps and parking lights flash once, the alarm is fully armed.
If the siren chirps and parking lights flash three times, the alarm is either waiting for the vehicle's delayed dome lights to turn off (if your vehicle is so equipped), or it is telling you that one of the alarm's zones (a door, or the hood or trunk) is either open or is not functioning properly (see ZONE BYPASS, page 5). Also, check to make sure your car's dome light switch was not accidentally left on.
Turn the ignition off, and open a door to exit the car. When the last door is closed (and the dome lights turn off, if your car has delayed dome lights), the siren chirps and the parking lights flash once. The LED now flashes quickly during the 30-second arming countdown, after which the siren chirps and parking lights flash once more to confirm the alarm is completely armed.
If you wish, you can open a door during the 30-second arming countdown, and keep it open for as long as needed. The LED turns off while the door is opened. When finished, once again close all the doors. The siren will chirp and the parking lights will flash once, and the LED will flash quickly to show the 30-second arming countdown has restarted.
If you close the last open door, and the siren does not chirp and parking lights do not flash, you know that one or more openings are not closed properly. This is SECO-LARM's patented Quick and Quiet Testing, and it prevents you from thinking your alarm is armed when it may not be. In such a case, make sure all the doors, as well as the hood and trunk, are closed properly, and that your vehicle's dome lights are off. If you cannot locate the problem, but need to arm the alarm, then press button #1 to immediately arm the alarm and bypass whatever zone is open (see ZONE BYPASS).
This function can prevent the alarm from arming one time if it is programmed for passive arming. This is useful for leaving the car for a short period of time such as when you stop at a gas station and you have friends that are going to wait in the car. To operate, turn off the ignition and press the VELT button once before opening any door (the LED will then turn steady on until the ignition is turned on or transmitter button is pressed). If you change your mind and wish to leave the car for an extended time, press transmitter button #1 to arm the alarm. The one-time override feature is automatically disengaged once the ignition is turned on.
NOTE: Under passive arming, you can force your alarm to arm immediately any time during the 30-second arming countdown by pressing transmitter button #1.
NOTE: There are references to opening or closing a door throughout this manual. The term "door" also includes your hood and trunk, if they are protected. Ask your dealer.
When the 30-sec. arming countdown ends, or when transmitter button #1 is pressed to arm the alarm, the siren chirps and parking lights flash once, and the LED starts flashing to show the alarm is armed.
When you press button #1 to arm the alarm, and the alarm responds with three chirps and three light flashes, there are two possibilities:
If the bypassed door is later closed, it will be restored (no siren chirp or light flash). If your alarm indicates a bypassed zone, find the cause as soon as possible to ensure your vehicle is completely protected. For instance, if your driver's door is not properly closed when you arm your alarm, a thief could open any door without setting off the alarm.
NOTE: The three zone bypass confirm chirps will not sound if chirp delete is engaged. However, the parking lights will still flash three times. See CHIRP DELETE.
This is useful if you know, based on experience, that your shock, glass-break, or other add-on sensor will false trigger, such as when you park near a construction site.
To bypass your alarm's sensors, first press button #1 to arm the alarm (even if the alarm is set for passive arming). The siren chirps and the parking lights flash once (three times if a zone is bypassed) to confirm armed. Within three seconds, press button #2. The siren chirps three times and the parking lights flash three times to confirm sensors are bypassed.
The sensors are automatically restored the next time button #1 is pressed.
To triger the alarm in an emergency (armed or disarmed), press and hold transmitter button # 1 for 3 seconds. The siren sounds and the parking lights flash about 30 seconds. You can also stop the siren and the parking lights by pressing button # 1 again. When panic is activated, the alarm will disarm and doors will unlock (if remote controlled door locks are connected).
While your alarm is armed, your car is protected in the following ways:
To disarm the alarm, press button #1. The siren chirps twice, the parking lights flash twice, and the LED turns off. What happens next depends on how your alarm is set (ask your dealer):
Alarm set for active arming:
The alarm is now completely disarmed.
Alarm set for passive arming:
NOTE: Under passive arming, the LED flashes quickly from the time button #1 is pressed to disarm the alarm until the alarm is either completely disarmed or it rearms. The LED turns off while a door is open (if connected to door switch).
NOTE: If passive arming is used, the alarm can be forced to remain disarmed if needed. See "One-Time Override of Passive Arming".
NOTE: If a door was open when you pressed transmitter button #1, the siren chirps three times and the parking lights flash three times to confirm it is not protected (see ZONE alarm stays completely armed. BYPASS).
If you lose your transmitter, you can disarm your alarm with the ignition key and VELT button. While your alarm is either armed or triggered, turn the ignition switch on, then press and release the VELT button once. The siren and the flashing lights stop, and the alarm is disarmed. (Ask your dealer where the VELT button is hidden.)
NOTE: If you use emergency disarm, the alarm will arm passively when you turn the ignition off and close the doors. Next time you open a door, you will have 10 seconds to turn the ignition on and press the VELT button to disarm the alarm before the siren sounds. This delay is cancelled next time you arm or disarm your alarm with the transmitter.
There are times, especially late at night, when you may not want to hear the siren chirps. There are two ways to delete the chirps:
NOTE: Either method deletes the arm, disarm, pre-intrusion, zone bypass, and valet chirps. However, it does not affect the flashing parking lights.
If your alarm is set for passive arming and you do not want it to arm automatically when you leave your car, you can put it in the valet mode. For instance, you may not want the alarm to arm when you leave your vehicle to be serviced or for valet parking.
To enter valet, first disarm the alarm, close all doors, turn the ignition ON, and press and release the VELT button once. The siren chirps once to confirm the alarm is in valet.
To exit valet, close all doors, turn the ignition ON, and press and release the VELT button once. The siren chirps twice to confirm valet is exited and the alarm is now disarmed.
While your alarm is in valet, the LED flashes slowly sa thieves think the alarm is armed. If you press transmitter button # 1 while the alarm is in valet, the doors will lock or unlock, and the parking lights will flash four times.
NOTE: If you trigger the alarm by doing emergency call for help (panic) while the alarm is in valet, the alarm will exit valet.
Your alarm includes a patented dual-stage shock sensor.
The first stage (pre-intrusion alert) warns thieves the alarm is armed. For instance, the alarm will chirp five times and the parking lights will flash five times if the shock sensor detects a light bump to the vehicle. However, if the thief attacks the car with sufficient force, the alarm will trigger. (Your dealer can make the shock sensor more or less sensitive to attack, depending on your vehicle.)
NOTE: The shock sensor will not be ready to trigger the alarm until four seconds after the alarm is armed.
Your alarm also includes a built-in, patented sensor to detect the sound of glass breaking.
The first stage (pre-intrusion alert) warns thieves the alarm is armed. For instance, the alarm will chirp five times and the parking lights will flash five times if the glass-break sensor detects tapping on the windows. However, if the thief attacks the car with sufficient force, the alarm will trigger. (Your dealer can make the sensor more or less sensitive to attack, depending on your vehicle.)
NOTE: The glass-break sensor will not be ready to trigger the alarm until four seconds after the alarm is armed.
With this optional feature, while your alarm is armed, your car will not start, even if a thief has your keys.
Your alarm also has Automatic Starter Disable (ASD). ASD works as follows:
ASD is programmable ask your dealer.
Your transmitter has two extra channels to control optional accessories:
With this optional feature, your alarm can lock the doors when it is armed and unlock them when it is disarmed. They can be set to lock and unlock any time transmitter button #1 is pressed, or when the last door is closed for passive arming. They lock automatically if the alarm is triggered (exception see EMERGENCY CALL FOR HELP,).
Ignition-controlled operation The doors automatically lock when you turn the ignition on, and unlock when you turn the ignition off. (Programmable ask your dealer).
2-step unlock When your alarm is armed, pressing button #1 disarms the alarm and unlocks the driver's door only. Pressing the button again within one second unlocks the passenger doors without arming the alarm. (Optional ask your dealer.)
Auto locking with passive arming The doors can be set to automatically lock after the 3O-second exit delay is over and the alarm arms. (Programmable ask your dealer.)
Whenever you disarm the alarm, your car's dome lights turn on for 30 seconds to help you find your car at night and make sure no one is hiding inside.
If your alarm was triggered when you were away, the siren will chirp two times and the parking lights flash seven times when you disarm your alarm.
These "memory" flashes automatically reset when the ignition is turned on.
With this feature, your transmitters can control alarms in two cars, with the functions of button #1 and button #2 switched in the second car. (Optional ask your dealer.)
Helps keep your alarm powered even if a thief cuts the alarm's main power line. (Optional ask your dealer.)
Programmable features allow you to customize your alarm. Your dealer can program them when the alarm is installed.
NOTE: The chirps for arm, disarm, pre-itrusion, zone bypass, and valet can be deleted (see CHIRP DELETE)
