Owner's Manual

IMPORTANT

All ENFORCER vehicle security systems have been designed to ensure that, when installed properly as instructed, they can never cause a shutdown of your vehicle's engine while it is running. Any installation which allows this product to directly or indirectly cause such a shutdown runs contrary to the product's intended application, and SECO-LARM hereby disclaims liability for any damage or consequences resulting therefrom.

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: 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. It may be necessary to add sensors or accessories not included with this alarm. Please consult your profession! SECO-LARM dealer.

V.E.T. SWITCH & OPERATION CHART

Valet Mode is useful when unloading groceries, or servicing the car. To activate the valet mode, turn the ignition key on and press 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 press 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 the ignition key on and then press 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 when leaving the car for a short period of time such as during a stop at a gas station. To operate, turn off the ignition key and press the V.E.T. switch once before opening any door. 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 button 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 the car in valet mode, as a thief will see the flashing LED and assume the alarm is armed.

NOTE 4: Press the V.E.T. switch once before opening any door.

OPERATING THE ENFORCER

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 active arming is selected, the alarm will arm instantly after pressing the transmitter's button #1. A "CHIRP" will be heard and the parking lights will flash once after pressing transmitter's button #1, to signify that the alarm is armed.

If passive arming is selected, the alarm will automatically arm itself 15 seconds after all doors are closed. A "CHIRP" will be heard and the parking lights will flash once after the last door is closed, to confirm that alarm is arming. During the delay period of 15 seconds, you can temporarily stop the arming of ENFORCER simply by opening a door.

This lets you re-enter the car without having to first disarm the alarm. When finished, close the door and the alarm will recommence arming.

In either case, if you do not hear a chirp or see the flashing of the parking lights, the alarm is informing you that a door has not been closed properly and therefore the alarm won't arm. This remarkable patented fail-safe feature stops you from walking away thinking your car is protected when it is not. (Your SECO-LARM professional installer can turn this "CHIRP" off, if you desire.)

DISARMING THE ENFORCER

If passive arming is selected, first press the transmitter's button #1 (the alarm will chirp twice and parking lights will flash twice). Then, open a door within 15 seconds (If a door is not opened within 15 seconds, the alarm will rearm itself). Finally, turn ON the ignition key to stop rearming . This ENFORCER'S patented 3-step disarming process prevents accidental disarming.

If active arming is used, you can choose Auto rearm or Permanent disarm mode. In auto rearm mode, the alarm will rearm itself unless a door is opened within 15 seconds after pressing the transmitter's button #1. In Permanent disarm mode, pressing the transmitter's button #1 will disarm the alarm permanently. In either mode, two chirps will be heard and two flashing parking lights will be seen after pressing the transmitter's button #1.

CAR LOCATOR AND TAMPER INDICATOR WHILE DISARM

Two long flashes show the 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 #1 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 you to use the transmitter to temporarily arm or disarm the alarm without chirps. By pressing Button #2 and then, within 10 seconds, pressing button #1, the alarm will either arm or disarm without chirping for that one time only. When you arrive home at night and want to arm your alarm without disturbing your neighbor, Quiet Mode lets you arm your car without the awakening siren chirps.

2nd CHANNEL OUTPUT (optional)

Pressing button #2 of your transmitter for 3 seconds triggers the second channel output from your alarm. This output can be used to operate optional accessories such as automatic trunk release, etc. This output is operable when the ignition key is OFF. Therefore, accidentally pressing the 2nd button will not open the trunk.

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 for 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 transmitter button is pressed for arming or disarming: a. Check if the Red wire has power, while the Black wire is properly grounded, b. Replace the transmitter battery and check the clips for proper polarity, c. Check that all doors are closed.
  2. Transmitter works in some areas and not in other areas:
  3. This is probably due to excess RF activity in that area (usually just a short time and only while you are in that area, depending on the type of the activity). It is only temporary and won't affect the alarm in other areas.
  4. Alarm sounds for no apparent reason:
  5. Be sure that the transmitter button is not being held down too long, or 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 sources. Such interference is temporary.
  6. Alarm does not arm manually or automatically but the doors will lock/unlock when the transmitter is pressed. When ignition is off, LED has a long flash (1.5 sec. on, 0.5 sec. off). When ignition is on, LED is off.
    1. The alarm was accidentally switched to valet mode.
    2. Turn the ignition on, press the V.E.T. switch once, then turn the ignition off. Alarm can now be armed.

NOTE 1: If the alarm still does not function properly after checking the V.E.T. switch, consult the Enforcer dealer where you purchased the product for further advise.

NOTE 2: 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. Place back the front cover, taking care not to break the LED.
  4. Place back the screw, turning it in tight enough to hold the case together, but not so tight that the case cracks.

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

This Enforcer is equipped with a 2-stage, pre-intrusion, electromagnetic shock censor. If the vehicle is lightly tapped, the first stage sensor will cause the alarm siren to "chirp". This feature provides a pre-intrusion warning to would-be thieves. If 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 30 seconds. 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:

DOMELIGHT SUPERVISION OUTPUT (optional)

For added protection at night or in dark parking lots, the interior domelight turns on for 16 seconds when disarming.

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.
