Installation points to rememberImportant: This product is designed for fuel-injected,automatic transmission vehicles only. Installing it in astandard transmission vehicle is dangerous and is contrary to its intended use.Before beginning the installation: Please read this entire Installation Guide before beginning theinstallation. The installation of this remote start system requires interfacing with many of the vehicle’s systems. Many new vehiclesuse low-voltage or multiplexed systems that can be damaged bylow resistance testing devices, such as test lights and logic probes(computer safe test lights). Test all circuits with a high quality digitalmulti-meter before making connections.Do not disconnect the battery if the vehicle has an anti-theft-codedradio. If equipped with an air bag, avoid disconnecting the battery if possible. Many airbag systems will display a diagnosticcode through their warning lights after they lose power. Disconnecting the battery requires this code to be erased, which canrequire a trip to the dealer.Remove the dome light fuse. This prevents accidentally drainingthe battery.Roll down a window to avoid being locked out of the vehicle.After the installation: Test all functions. The “Using Your System” section of the Owner’sGuide is very helpful when testing. Complete the vehicle Safety Check outlined in this manual priorto the vehicle reassembly.8 2009 Directed Electronics.

Virtual tachVirtual Tach is the default RPM-sensing method for new remote startsystems. Virtual Tach gives the installer the performance of a hardwiredtach wire, with the convenience of voltage sensing. It is far superior toany voltage-sense feature you’ve tried before.Virtual Tach monitors the cranking voltage of the vehicle using a veryfast micro-controller and an analog-to-digital converter. The microprocessor “saves” the base voltage as a reference. When Virtual Tach“sees” the slightest uptick in voltage, indicating that the alternator ischarging the battery, the starter motor shuts off instantly. D2DThe system has the ability to interface with an Xpresskit module throughthe D2D port. The advantage to using a D2D interface is that thereis less wiring involved in the installation. Check the Xpresskit moduleInstallation Guide to determine which wires are not needed, and whichoptions are available. For more information visit www.xpresskit.com. 2009 Directed Electronics.

Component locations and finding wiresFor detailed information on where to locate components, and howto find the wires you need, please refer to the Direct Tech web site atwww.directechs.com.Making your wiring connectionsBefore making your connections, plan how your wires will be routedthrough the vehicle. For instance, the red 12V constant input and the remote start igni tion wires are often routed together to the ignition switchharness. In order to keep the wiring neat and make it harder to find,you may wish to wrap these wires together in electrical tape or concealthem in tubing similar to what the manufacturer used.There are two acceptable ways of making a wire connection - solderconnections and crimp connectors. When properly performed, eithertype of connection is reliable and trouble-free. Regardless of whetheryou solder your connections or you use mechanical type crimp-on connections, ensure that all connections are mechanically sound and thatthey are insulated, especially when connecting data lines in the vehicle.Cheap electrical tape, especially when poorly applied, is not a reliable insu lator. It often falls off in hot weather. Use good quality electrical tape or heat shrink. Never twist-and-tape the wires together without soldering. Never use “fuse taps”, as they can damage fuse box terminals.If you use tapping connectors such as T-Taps (not to be confused withScotch-Locks), avoid using them in higher-current applications (constant12V, ground, etc.) These connectors are inferior in quality and shouldbe avoided.10 2009 Directed Electronics.

Relay for Positive ( ) Disarm WireH1/2GREEN/WHITE(-) FACTORY REARMThis wire sends a 200mA negative pulse every time the remote startshuts down or the doors are locked. This can be used to pulse the armwire of the vehicle’s factory anti-theft device. Use a relay to send a (-)or ( ) pulse to the arm wire.H1/3YELLOW( ) IGNITION OUT (TO ALARM)As a stand-alone system: The H1/3 YELLOW wire should not be connected to anything.As an add-on car starter: If connected, disconnect the ignition/accessory input of the remote controlled security or keyless entry system.Connect the H1/3 YELLOW ignition output to the ignition/accessoryinput of the remote controlled security or keyless entry system. The wirewill prevent the host system from sensing that the ignition is on duringremote start operation.14 2009 Directed Electronics. All rights reserved.
H1/4WHITE/BLUE(-) ACTIVATION INPUTThis input comes from the factory set to 1 activation pulse. This meansthat it is necessary to have 1 ground pulse on the white/blue wire forthe remote start to activate or to deactivate. It is not mandatory to connect this wire unless the remote start is being activated by a security orkeyless entry system. An optional push button can also be connected tothis wire to manually activate the remote start.Note: The activation pulse count can be programmed to 1, 2, or 3pulses when changed it will affect both activation inputs; the White/Blue wire and the remote control activation.H1/5ORANGE(-) GROUND WHEN LOCKED OUTPUTThis wire supplies a (-)500 mA ground as long as the system is lockedand when the remote start is activated. (This feature can be turned offby programming the anti-grind option Off). This output ceases as soonas the system is unlocked. The ground-when-locked can be hooked upto an optional starter kill/anti-grind relay control module, a voice module or any accessory that requires a ground-when-armed. 2009 Directed Electronics.

H1/6BROWN(-) HORN OUTPUTThis wire supplies a (-) 200 mA output that can be used to honk thevehicle horn. It outputs a single pulse when locking the doors with theremote, and two pulses when unlocking with the remote. This wire alsooutputs pulses for 30 seconds when Panic Mode is activated. If thevehicle has a ( ) horn circuit, an optional relay can be used to interfacewith the system.H1/7RED/WHITE(-) TRUNK RELEASE OUTPUTWhen the system receives the code controlling trunk release, for longerthan 1.5 seconds, the RED/WHITE wire will supply a (-) 200mA outputas long as the transmission continues. This is often used to operate atrunk/hatch release or other relay-driven function.Important: Never use this wire to drive anything except a relay or low-current input! The transistorizedoutput can only supply 200 mA of current. Connecting directly to a solenoid, motor, or other high-currentdevice will cause it to fail.H1/7 RED/WHITE16 2009 Directed Electronics.

H1/8BLACK(-) CHASSIS GROUND CONNECTIONWe recommend that you do not use a factory ground. Ground allyour components to the same point in the vehicle, (preferably the kickpanel). Scrape away any paint and use a factory bolt or make yourown ground with a self-tapping screw and a star washer.H1/9WHITE( /-) LIGHT FLASH OUTPUTImportant: Do NOT connect this wire to a negativevehicle light flash wire before changing the programming jumper to the negative polarity position or damage to the vehicle light circuit may occur.As factory configured, the H1/9 WHITE wire should be connected tothe ( ) parking light wire. If the light flash polarity jumper is moved tothe (-) position (refer to the Programming Jumper section of this guide),this wire then supplies (-) 200mA output. 2009 Directed Electronics.

Heavy gauge relay interfaceThe heavy gauge wires are used to energize the ignition circuits in thevehicle. It is crucial that these connections are made correctly so thatthey are capable of handling the current demands. For this reason,scotch locks, T-taps and other such connectors should not be used.1PINK( ) OUTPUT TO IGNITION CIRCUITConnect this wire to the ignition wire in the vehicle.2PURPLE( ) OUTPUT TO STARTER CIRCUITConnect this wire to the starter wire in the vehicle.3ORANGE( ) OUTPUT TO ACCESSORY CIRCUITConnect this wire to the accessory wire in the vehicle that powers theclimate control system.4&6RED( ) (30A) HIGH CURRENT 12 INPUTRemove the two 30 amp fuses prior to connecting these wires and donot replace them until the harness has been plugged into the controlmodule. These wires are the source of current for all the onboard remote start relays and the main unit. They must be connected to a highcurrent source. Since the factory supplies ( ) 12V to the key switch thatis used to operate the motor, it is recommended that these wires beconnected there.Note: If the factory supplies two separate ( ) 12V feeds to the ignition switch, connect one RED wire of the satellite to each feed at theswitch. 2009 Directed Electronics.
