Government Regulations

This device complies with Part 15 of FCC rules. Operation is subject to the fol-
lowing two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and 
(2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference 
that may cause undesirable operation.

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a 
class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are 
designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a 
residential installation. This equipment generates and can radiate radio fre-
quency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction 
manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, 
there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installa-
tion. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television, 
which can be determined by turning the equipment OFF and ON, the user is 
encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following 
measures:

• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which 
the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio / TV technician for help.

Remote Controls

To satisfy FCC RF exposure compliance requirements, this device should be 
used in hand-held, hand operated configurations only.  The device and its an-
tenna must maintain a separation distance of 20 cm or more from the person’s 
body, except for the hand and wrists, to satisfy RF exposure compliance.  This 
device is designed to be used in a person’s hands and its operating configu-
rations do not support normal transmissions while it is carried in pockets or 
holsters next to a person’s body.

Control Center

To satisfy FCC RF exposure compliance requirements, the device and its an-
tenna must maintain a separation distance of 20 cm or more from the person’s 
body, except for the hand and wrists, to satisfy RF exposure compliance.  

This device complies with the Industry Canada Radio Standards Specification 
RSS 210. Its use is authorized only on a no-interference, no-protection basis; 
in other words, this device must not be used if it is determined that it causes 
harmful interference to services authorized by IC. In addition, the user of this 
device must accept any radio interference that may be received, even if this 
interference could affect the operation of the device.

WARNING!

 Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party re-

sponsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate this device.

Warning! Safety First

Please read the safety warnings below before proceeding. Improper 
use of the product may be dangerous or illegal.

Installation

Due to the complexity of this system, installation of this product must only be 
performed by an authorized Directed dealer. If you have any questions, ask 
your retailer or contact Directed directly at 1-800-753-0600.

Remote Start Capable

When properly installed, this system can start the vehicle via a command 
signal from the remote control transmitter. Therefore, never operate the system 
in an enclosed area or partially enclosed area without ventilation (such as a 
garage). When parking in an enclosed or partially enclosed area or when 
having the vehicle serviced, the remote start system must be disabled using the 
installed menu wheel. It is the user’s sole responsibility to properly handle and

keep out of reach from children all remote control transmitters to assure that the 
system does not unintentionally remote start the vehicle. THE USER MUST IN-
STALL A CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR IN OR ABOUT THE LIVING AREA 
ADJACENT TO THE VEHICLE. ALL DOORS LEADING FROM ADJACENT LIV-
ING AREAS TO THE ENCLOSED OR PARTIALLY ENCLOSED VEHICLE STOR-
AGE AREA MUST AT ALL TIMES REMAIN CLOSED. These precautions are the 
sole responsibility of the user.

Manual Transmission Vehicles

Remote starters on manual transmission vehicles operate differently than 
those with automatic transmission 

because you must leave your car in neutral. 

You must read this Owner’s Guide to familiarize yourself with the proper proce-
dures regarding manual transmission remote starters. If you have any questions, 
ask your authorized Directed dealer or contact Directed at 1-800-753-0600.
Before remote starting a manual transmission vehicle, be sure to:
• 

Leave the vehicle in neutral and be sure no one is standing in front or 
behind the vehicle.

• 

Only remote start on a flat surface

• 

Have the parking brake fully engaged

WARNING!

 It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure the parking/emer-

gency brake properly functions. Failure to do so can result in personal injury or 
property damage. We recommend the owner have the parking / emergency 
brake system inspected and adjusted by a qualified automotive shop biannu-
ally.

Use of this product in a manner contrary to its intended mode of operation may 
result in property damage, personal injury, or death. (1) Never remotely start 
the vehicle with the vehicle in gear, and (2) Never remotely start the vehicle 
with the keys in the ignition. The user must also have the neutral safety feature 
of the vehicle periodically checked, wherein the vehicle must not remotely start

while the car is in gear. This testing should be performed by an authorized 
Directed dealer in accordance with the Safety Check outlined in the product 
installation guide. If the vehicle starts in gear, cease remote start operation im-
mediately and consult with the authorized Directed dealer to fix the problem.

After the remote start module has been installed, contact your authorized dealer 
to have him or her test the remote start module by performing the Safety Check 
outlined in the product installation guide. If the vehicle starts when performing 
the Neutral Safety Shutdown Circuit test, the remote start unit has not been 
properly installed. The remote start module must be removed or the installer 
must properly reinstall the remote start system so that the vehicle does not start 
in gear. All installations must be performed by an authorized Directed dealer. 

OPERATION OF THE REMOTE START MODULE IF THE VEHICLE STARTS IN 
GEAR IS CONTRARY TO ITS INTENDED MODE OF OPERATION. OPER-
ATING THE REMOTE START SYSTEM UNDER THESE CONDITIONS MAY 
RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE OR PERSONAL INJURY. YOU MUST IMME-
DIATELY CEASE THE USE OF THE UNIT AND SEEK THE ASSISTANCE OF 
AN AUTHORIZED Directed DEALER TO REPAIR OR DISCONNECT THE IN-
STALLED REMOTE START MODULE. DIRECTED WILL NOT BE HELD RESPON-
SIBLE OR PAY FOR INSTALLATION OR REINSTALLATION COSTS.

This product is designed for fuel injected vehicles only. Use of this 
product in a standard transmission vehicle must be in strict accordance 
with this guide.

This product should not be installed in any convertible vehicles, soft or 
hard top with a manual transmission. Installation in such vehicles may 
pose certain risk.
