ANTITHEFT (CIRCUIT DISABLER)
Programmable as Active or Inactive during installation.
Your Remote Starter is equipped with an antitheft system. This system, when enabled, consists of an output that controls a
relay that cuts all circuits required to operate your vehicle (optional connection).
There are two types of antitheft systems.
This type of antitheft system arms automatically when ignition key is turned from RUN to OFF and remains OFF for one
minute. It can also be armed manually by sending a Lock command (unless ignition key is in RUN position).
Antitheft system is disarmed for one minute when you send an Unlock command.
If ignition key is not turned to ‘RUN’ position within one minute, system automatically rearms, thus preventing an intruder
from starting your vehicle, even with ignition key. The indicator light (optional) blinks rapidly during rearming, and then
continuously when antitheft system is armed.
It can be connected so that horn sounds if an intruder tries to start your vehicle when antitheft is armed.
This type of antitheft system is armed by sending a ‘Lock’ command (unless ignition key is in ‘RUN’ position) and is disarmed
by sending an ‘Unlock’ command. The indicator light (optional) blinks continuously when antitheft system is armed (if the
AstroStart security system is not armed) .
The Antitheft function can be deactivated for the same reasons and in the same way as the Antitheft system. See "Valet
mode" details on page 16.
PARKING LIGHTS STATUS
The system can advise you that the vehicle’s lights have been on for more than ten seconds after the engine was stopped
(additional optional equipment required).
The message is sent again after 30 seconds and then every two minutes for as long as the lights remain on.
This function is only available on gas-powered and hybrid vehicles.
An optional indicator light (LED) can be added to the system to show the status of the safety sequence (on vehicles
equipped with a manual transmission), and the status of the safety system, the antitheft system or the Valet Mode.
See ‘Indicator Light’ in the ‘Safety System’ Section.
The following table shows the codes displayed by the indicator light when performing the safety sequence.
