ALARM TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS
(This guide may provide help on temporarily disabling a alarm until a repair can be made)
 


                         If your alarm goes off constantly or does not armed by itself:

Does the alarm arm and disarm properly?  If it does proceed, if it doesn't, then have it checked by your installer.

1. Check and make sure your dome light is not staying on.  If it is make sure all doors are closed and/or the dome
    light switch is not turned on.
2. Check your sensor. Make sure they are not too sensitive. They can cause false alarm and also cause the system
    not to arm by itself.     
3. The alarm current sensing might be detecting voltage drop from the battery of the car or current draw from an
    equipment (maybe left on).


                                           If your car won't start check the following:

1. Does the alarm arm and disarm properly. If it does chances are is not the alarm.
2. When you try to start the car the alarm goes off.. It could be your battery.
3. Try to start no sound, nothing lights up, alarm doesn't work. It could be a loose battery terminal or dead battery.
4. Everything lights up, alarm works fine, but car still won't start. I could be a bad starter, starter disable in the alarm
    or check and make sure  the car is in "PARK" or press the clutch all the way down to the floor.


                                         To activate the Valet Mode do the following:

There is a push button or toggle switch to disable the alarm (to engage the valet mode). Without knowing where this
switch is you won't be able to disconnect the alarm.

1. Put the key in the ignition and turn it to the "on" position.
2. Flip the toggle or hold the push button for at least 5 seconds.
3. The LED. light will stay solid on.
4. Turn the ignition off
5. Release the push button. If you have a toggle leave it alone in step 2


                                       To de-activate the Valet Mode do the following:

There is a push button or toggle switch to enable the alarm (to disengage the valet mode). Without knowing where this switch is you won't be able to reconnect the alarm.

1. Put the key in the ignition and turn it to the "on" position.
2. Flip the toggle or hold the push button for at least 1 seconds no more than 2 seconds on most DEI products,
    keep it pressed in.
3. Turn the ignition off.
4. The LED. light will be off.
5. Release the push button. If you have a toggle leave it alone as described in step 2.

                                         DEI Remote Transmitter Programming Guide:

In order to enter Learn Routine, the Valet/Program push button must be plugged
into the main brain's Blue 2 Pin Port (Look for a small black push button located under
the drivers dash or drivers kick panel somewhere). If you do not have the Valet/Program
switch, you may order it Here

1) Open a door and make sure the dome light is on.
    
2) Turn the ignition on to the RUN position or you may also start car.

3) Within 15 seconds press and release the
Valet/Program push button
    to select the channel you wish to program. For example, press and release
    once for channel 1 (arm/disarm channel).
    For Channel 2, press and release twice (trunk release).
    For Channel 3, press and release three times (remote start).
    (Some
DEI systems require different programming for different channels. You
    can get specific installation manuals with remote programming instruction Here)
     
    Press and hold the
Valet/Program push button once more. You should get a
    confirmation chirp/horn-h
onk or a flashing LED light (If installed).
    If you do not get a chirp/horn-honk the alarm may have a jumper in
    the alarm that has the programming feature turned OFF (disabled).

4) Once the alarm chirps/horn-honks keep holding the
Valet/Program push button.

5) Press the button on the transmitter that you would like to control the selected receiver
   channel. A chirp/horn-honk will confirm that the code has been learned. If programming
   more than one transmitter repeat step 5. Old transmitter codes will be dropped only
   if programming 4 new transmitters.
    
6) Once the code(s) are learned, the
Valet/Program push button can be released.


Learn Routine will be exited if:

Ignition is turned off
Door is closed
Valet/Program push button is pressed too many times
More than 15 seconds elapses between steps
One long chirp/horn-honk indicates that Learn Routine has been exited.
