Remote Start

A remote starter is having the convenience of starting the vehicle via remote control transmitters, from 50 feet and up and in some applications through a cell phone. As the temperature controls in the vehicle are set according to the climate, if cold set heater, if hot set AC, when the remote stater is activated the vehicle will start and begin to preheat or precool the vehicle. In very cold climates some remote start systems can be programmed to start at set periodical times.

The luxury of remote starting your vehicle also involves safety precautions taken and are packaged with quality systems. The remote transmitters allow programming to accommodate control of how buttons function operate, to prevent accidental starting. A pin switch on the hood will monitor if the hood is opened the switch will sense and prevent the remote start from starting the vehicle. Foot brake input will allow the remote start to disengage after the brake is tapped after the remote stat is engaged, also if someone enters the vehicle while idling, steps on the brake and does not insert the key, the vehicle will turn off. A input to monitor the transmissions position as this will not allow the remote start to engage if transmission is out of park. Anti grind feature prevent to the vehicles starter from damage due to accidently trying to engage it with ignition with remote starter activated. A sensor circuit to determine the temperature of the vehicle and the ability to disengage the remote starter via the transmitter. Visual confirmation will flash the parking or headlights indicating engaged or disengaged.

 

Installation/Remote Start

Proper planning and knowledge is vital to a well installed system, using a multimeter for verification in identifying circuits is a must. Awareness of airbag and other sensitive circuits should be visual habits. The remote start may look overwhelming with an abundance of wires on the wiring harness, especially if "piggybacked" with a security system, which not all wiill be used. Attention to secure connections, routing of the wires and patience will be rewarded with a care free proper functioning system. Remember, this system is duplicating the action of inserting a key and turning the ignition to start the vehicle, extreme caution should be taken during installation. All main connections should be done at ignition harness which is located around the base of the steering wheel.

Remote Start Connections

 

12 Volt Constant

Connect this wire to a + 12 VDC constant source found at the vehicle's ignition switch.. This wire provides power for the control circuit as well as the ignition 1 and ignition 2 relays.

Ground

Connect the Black wire to a known vehicle ground source or to a solid clean metal part of the chassis. Be certain to remove any paint or grease and secure this wire with a self taping screw and ring terminal.

Starter Output

This wire will have +12 volts when the ignition switch is turned to the start (crank) position only. This wire will have 0 volts in all other ignition switch positions

Ignition 1

Connect this wire to the ignition 1 wire from the ignition switch. This wire will show +12 volts when the ignition key is turned to the to the "ON" or "RUN" and the "START" or CRANK" positions, and will have 0 volts when the key is turned to the to the "ON" or "RUN" and the "START" or CRANK" positions, and will have 0 volts when the key is turned to the "OFF" and "ACCESSORY" positions. For Diesel Applications, this wire must be connected to the ignition circuit that powers the glow plugs if the vehicle requires glow plug pre-heating.

Ignition 2

Connect this wire to the ignition 2 wire from the ignition switch. This wire will show + 12 volts when the ignition key is turned to the "ON" or "RUN" position and is some cases the "START" or CRANK" position. This wire will show 0 volts when the key is turned to the "OFF" and "ACCESSORY" positions

Ignition 3

If there is Shock Sensor used with an alarm system and it is not bypassed during the Remote Start activation period, then vibration from the running vehicle can cause the alarm to trigger.

Ignition 3 Output:

Some newer vehicles use a third ignition wire which is required to start and keep the vehicle's engine running. If this is the case, connect the Light Blue wire to terminal #86 of an external relay. Connect terminal # 30 & # 85 to a fused + 12 volt battery source rated for a minimum of 25 Amp. Connect terminal # 87 to the third ignition wire in the vehicle.
If the vehicle has the General Motors VATS system installed, you will need to by-pass the system while the vehicle is operating under the control of the Remote Start Unit. Measure the resistance of the resistor pellet on the ignition key then select a resistor within 5% of the key's value from the resistor pack supplied. Locate the pair of VATS wires in the vehicle, usually a pair of thin gauge wires running from the ignition switch
to the VATS control module.

Accessory Output

Connect this wire to the Accessory wire from the ignition switch. This wire will show + 12 volts when the ignition switch is turned to the "ACCESSORY" or "ON" and "RUN" positions, and will show 0 volts when the key is turned to the "OFF" and "START" or "CRANK" positions

Tach

This wire will continually monitor the engine tach rate while the unit is under power of the Remote Start module. This wire will be routed to the vehicle ECM tach input or through the firewall into the engine compartment and connect to the negative side of the ignition coil. This Remote Start unit learns the tach rate of the vehicle and in most cases will operate properly from one multi coil pack regardless of the number of cylinders. If the vehicle has a single coil unit for each cylinder, it may be necessary to connect this wire to more than one cylinder for proper tach reference

Negative Inhibit

Connect the GREY wire to the previously mounted hood pin switch provided . This wire will be routed through the fire wall into the engine compartment. It is necessary to use an existing grommet when passing wires through the fire wall to prevent short circuiting.

Positive Inhibit

Parking LighAny time + 12 Volts is applied to the Brown wire, the Remote Starter will stop operating, even if the signal is received from the transmitter.If the vehicle has a factory installed hood pin switch, and that switch provides + 12 Volts to an under hood light.

Channels

Delayed 300 mA Pulsed Output/Channel 2

Wire pulses to ground via an independent RF channel from the keychain transmitter. This is a transistorized, low current output, and should only be used to drive an external relay coil

Channel 3

Wire supplies a 300 mA switched output whenever channel three of the receiver is accessed. Pressing the pre-programmed transmitter button(s) will access channel three and will remain active, for up to 8 seconds,
as long as the transmitter button(s) is held. This is a low current output and must be connected to a relay.

Program/Control Switch

Wire is switched to a full time ground. wire is at open circuit through the control switch, the remote starter is disabled.

 


Important! The wiring information is provided on an "as is" basis without any representation or warranty. The diagrams and information are for guidelines only. The responsibility must be taken to VERIFY any circuit before attempting any installation. Using a multimeter to identify wires is HIGHLY recommended. Removing the negative side of the vehicle battery, be AWARE of radio codes and computer resets, before performing any attempt of installation is also recommended. Working around the battery can be dangerous, take caution, safety glasses are a plus. Proper installation in every case remains the responsibility of the installer.
