QUICK-CONNECT T-HARNESS INSTALLATION:
2 factory plugs located near the vehicle's ignition cylinder along with the vehicle's OBDII diagnostic connector located below the driver's side dash, are removed and inserted into the corresponding T-harness connectors. And then the matching T-harness plugs are inserted back into where the factory plugs were removed.
EASY STEP-BY-STEP 2-KEY PROGRAMMING:
No pre-installation programming, online programming or any other type of components or information required. Simply install the system into your vehicle and then program the system to the vehicle using the OEM's onboard 3rd key programming mode: Two OEM factory original keys or OEM equivalent (cannot use "cloned" keys) are required to program the system to your vehicle.
KEY TAKE-OVER FEATURE:
Opening the vehicle's driver's door while it's running by the remote starter will not shut down the system: After entering the vehicle, simply turn the vehicle's ignition on and when you step on the brake to shift into gear the remote starter will automatically shut down but the vehicle will remain running, no need to re-start the vehicle again.
SAFE & SECURE BRAKE PEDAL MONITORING:
If the vehicle is entered while running via the remote starter and the brake pedal is pressed before the ignition was turned ON with a key, the remote starter will immediately shut down.
SILENT REMOTE START ACTIVATION CHOICE:
Activate your remote starter by either pressing LOCK 3X on your factory remote (with Horn Beep Confirmation) or pressing LOCK/UNLOCK/LOCK (No Horn beep, Silent Activation). Choice provided during checkout.
CHOICE OF 6 REMOTE STARTER RUN TIMES:
Choose 3, 7, 15 (Standard), 20, 30 or 60 Minutes. Choice provided during checkout.
AUTOMATIC HEAT & AC ACTIVATION:
Just leave your Heat or AC controls preset and the system will activate the vehicle's HVAC circuit so you can pre-heat or pre-cool your interior.
PARKING LIGHTS ON WHILE RUNNING:
Optional connection that will turn your vehicle's parking lights ON while it's running by the remote starter for visual indication. 2 t-tap connections are required to provide this feature (T-Tap connectors and parking lights relay included).
ALL DOORS ALARM SECURITY PROTECTION OPTION:
For added security, if your vehicle didn't come from the factory equipped with a factory alarm system, this system can provide the same exact feature where if any of the vehicle's doors are opened without unlocking them with the factory remote first, the vehicle's horn will start pulsing. Option provided at checkout.
