Main te nance

Your Clifford system requires no maintenance except for periodic replacement of the remote control  batteries. This product, like any electrical device in

your vehicle, requires your car battery be in proper working order and fully charged. To ensure proper operation, periodically have your vehicle battery

“load-checked” at any local garage/mechanic. Also make sure the battery cables and connections are  tight and free from corrosion.

Wel come to the world of

high- technology ve hi cle se cu rity and con ven ience  


ongratulations on the purchase of your Clifford Electronics mobile security/convenience system. Clifford Electronics has long been recognized as the

leading manufacturer of high-technology vehicle security systems. Our commitment to technological innovation, quality and reliability is clearly evident 

in your Clifford  system. Yet despite all its sophistication, your system is amazingly easy to use, never more difficult than a few presses of a button.

Your re mote con trols

The two 4-button remote controls are sophisticated miniature radio transmitters each powered by a 3-volt lithium battery. A weak remote control battery

will reduce range (the system will warn you if the battery in your remote is nearing the end of its useful life, see the 

Low battery warning

 section for details).

Electrical/radio frequency interference, obstructions, weather conditions and even sunspots can interrupt the signal from your remote to the system.The

remote controls are the keys to your system. But these remote controls are much more secure than car keys because each incorporates our ACG 2

(Anti-CodeGrabbing 2) technology with trillions of digital codes for the ultimate protection against remote control cloning devices. You will use your

Concept 100 remote control to arm and disarm the system, lock and unlock the doors, activate/deactivate the panic feature, enable/exit valet mode and

command options such as a remote trunk release, power window control, electric garage door interface or even remote starting of the engine and heater or air 

conditioner, among other options.

   Re motely con trol ling your Clif ford system  


Press button

. Upon arming: two siren chirps, two parking light flashes, dashboard LED flashes repeatedly and doors lock.


Press button 

. Upon disarming: one chirp, one parking light flash, LED turns off, doors unlock and the interior lights turn on.


Simultaneously press both the 




 button to arm or disarm without chirp acknowledgments.


For three seconds, 


 press button 

. The parking lights will flash repeatedly and the siren will blare for 30 seconds

(American model) or until you press the button again (European model). If the ignition is on (indicating you are in the car), the

doors will automatically lock to prevent an assailant from entering (note: some vehicles are unable to lock the doors while the

ignition is on). If the ignition is off, the doors will unlock, allowing you to enter immediately without fumbling with your keys.


If you have this option, press button 

 while the system is in its disarmed state.


If you have this option, press button 

 to turn on the headlights for 10-seconds.


If you have this option, press button 

 to remotely start the engine (or shut it down if idling under the control of IntelliStart 4).

Before remote starting, be sure to see the 

Remote Engine Starting DOs and DON’Ts

 noted in the IntelliStart 4 user’s manual. 


Simultaneously press buttons 




 to enable/exit valet mode.


If you have this option, press buttons 


 after disarming to fully open the windows controlled by SmartWindows 4.

On hot days, press this button combination right after arming to vent the windows slightly while the system remains armed.

  ACG 2 (Anti- CodeGrabbing 2™)  

ACG 2 protects you and your automobile from code-grabbing devices. Code-grabbers record, from hundreds of feet away, the code sent by your car alarm

remote control (code-grabbers are very similar to, but simpler than, cellphone “cloning” devices).  The thief then plays back the code when you’re gone,

instantly disarming the alarm and unlocking the doors. It’s like leaving your keys and remote in the door. Many non-Clifford alarms can be defeated that

easily, and some of the latest “smart” code-grabbers can even decipher the code hopping/jumping sequence used by other car alarm manufacturers. In

contrast, your Concept 100 uses complex digital signal processing and unbreachable code encryption  to randomly change the digital code every time you

use the remote control. Your remotes will 


 transmit the same code twice, and the control unit will 


 accept the same code twice. Thus the code

played back by the code-grabber — even the latest generation smart code-grabbers — will never be accepted by your Concept 100 system.

  Auto matic re mote con trol low- battery warn ing  

If your remote control battery is low, you’ll hear a rapid 5-chirp sequence when you disarm instead of the usual one chirp (with the Self-Powered SmartSiren 4

option, you’ll hear a low-pitched chirp).  Replacement batteries are available from any Authorized  Clifford Dealer.



background image

  Re mote con trol bat tery re place ment  

Replacement of a remote control battery is simple, but any Authorized Clifford Dealer will be happy to do it for you without cost provided that you buy

the replacement battery at their shop (it’s a good idea to keep a spare battery in your glove box just in case).
1. Insert a small, thin screwdriver blade in the slot near the keyring opening (you may leave the keyring in place) and turn it to separate the two halves.

2. Remove the old battery noting the + and – indications and replace it with the new one.

3. Put the enclosure back together by first aligning the top of the remote, then snapping the case back together at the bottom.

  Add ing new re mote con trols  

For other drivers, or to control Clifford G4 systems on your other cars with the same remote, you can buy additional remote controls from any Clifford

Dealer (or direct from the Customer Service Department of your nearest Clifford Headquarters listed on the front cover) and program them into the

system yourself. Concept 100 will respond to as many as four remote controls.

NOTE: Clifford G4 systems will re spond only to G4-type ACG 2 re mote con trols. Older Clif ford ACG and non- ACG
re mote con trols are not com pati ble with G4 systems.

To add a new remote control to the system, use the 

Add new remote

 feature (column 1, row 1) of the 

User-selectable features


False Alarm Pre ven tion & FACT™

With FACT (False Alarm Control and Test), you’ll never experience repeated false alarms. If the siren sounds, DO NOT disarm; allow it to run for the

full siren duration. Before sounding the siren a second time, the system automatically checks for another activated sensor or trigger to verify that an

intrusion is in progress. This feature is user-selectable.

Two-Point AutoIm mo bi li za tion

While armed, your system immobilizes both the starter and ignition systems of your vehicle to prevent a thief from starting the engine. The engine will

remain immobilized even if a thief were to cut power to the system or find and remove the system control unit.

EC compliance in Europe only: Unlike the AutoArming feature noted above, AutoImmobilization occurs  30 seconds
after turning off the ignition regardless of opening/closing the doors. When you remotely disarm, you have 30
seconds to start the engine. If more than 30 seconds pass, AutoImmobilization occurs, as indicated  by the LED
repeatedly flashing (but at a slower than normal “armed” rate). If Auto Im mo bi lization occurs, use the re mote
con trol to arm and then disarm or use the engine restart feature below.

  Op tional Wire less Im mo bi lizer™  

Clifford’s optional Wireless Immobilizer interrupts a third point in the vehicle, such as the fuel  pump. This Clifford innovation provides immobilization

without any wires to the control unit, so a thief could not find the Wireless Immobilizer even if he tried tracing the system wires! Operation of the

Wireless Immobilizer is automatic and user-transparent.

BE sure to keep the rec ord your Clif ford in staller pro vides as to the lo ca tion of the Wire less Im mo bi lizer in case your
ve hi cle needs fu ture serv ic ing.

NOTE: If your vehicle’s engine ever stalls, the Wireless Immobilizer WILL engage. You must turn the ignition all the
way to “OFF” in order to restart.

  En gine Re start Fea ture: Europe only 

In compliance with EC requirements, the AutoImmobilization will automatically engage thirty seconds 


 shutting down the engine. Thus

AutoImmobilization may occur while waiting for a train to pass or other delay. To restart:
1. Turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position.

2. Press button 


3. You may now start the engine.

User- Selectable AutoArming™

If this feature is enabled and you forget to remotely arm, the system automatically arms itself 30  seconds 


 the vehicle doors are closed. For your

convenience, if you re-open any door(s) within the 30-second countdown, AutoArming restarts the 30-second delay from the beginning after all doors are 

closed. Concept 100 has these additional features:


AutoArming entry delay:

If you temporarily lose the use of your remote controls, you may turn on the AutoArming entry delay feature. If this

feature and AutoArming are turned on, it allows you to enter the car (if it previously AutoArmed) and silently disarm the system by turning on the

ignition within 15 seconds of opening the door. See 

User-selectable features

 (column 3, row 3).


Visual acknowledgment:

Five seconds after you exit, close all the doors and the interior light has turned off, the indicator lights flash twice to

confirm the AutoArming countdown is progressing. Then, 25 seconds later, the system will AutoArm.


Lock upon AutoArming:

To ensure you can’t accidentally lock your keys inside the car, the system is factory-set 


 to lock the doors upon

AutoArming. To change this setting, see 

User-selectable features



Instant AutoArming bypass:

Prevents AutoArming when fueling the vehicle and at other times when you wish to temporarily bypass

AutoArming. To activate Instant AutoArming Bypass, rapidly turn the ignition switch to “ON” then “OFF.” You will hear a siren chirp to confirm

that the system will not AutoArm. The system automatically  reverts to its normal operating mode when you next start the engine.

Plain View 2 Coded Valet Mode

All car alarms have a valet mode that essentially turns off the security features. This mode is also used to turn off the alarm if the system is not responding 

to the remote control. However, thieves can disable other alarm brands by simply hotwiring the ignition and flicking the alarm’s easy-to-find 




In contrast, your Concept 100 system has safeguards that ensure a thief cannot enable the valet mode as a way of “turning off” your system. To enable

valet mode, the driver must first enter the secret valet code on the PlainView 2 switch mounted on  your vehicle’s dash or console. When the system is in

valet mode, it overrides AutoArming and all other security features. At various times, you will need to switch the system off. For instance, when refueling

or washing your car.

The system’s factory- set valet code is 2: 



NOTE: If you tem po rar ily lose the use of your re mote con trols, you can dis arm the sys tem by  ena bling valet mode.

Entering a code 

To enter your code, press the 

 button the appropriate number of times on the PlainView 2 switch followed by the blank button. To  enter a zero, you

simply press the blank button.

EX AM PLE: To en ter a code of 1203, you would press: 



 blank, blank, 



To en able valet mode

1. Turn the ignition switch to its “ON” position or start the engine if it is not already running.

2. Enter your valet code on the PlainView 2 switch.



 pressing the blank button for 4 seconds. Release the button. The LED will continue to remain on for ongoing visual confirmation of valet


To exit valet mode and re store nor mal operation

1. Turn the ignition switch to its “ON” position or start the engine if it is not already running.

2. Enter your valet code on the PlainView 2 switch. The LED will turn off.

  How to set your own se cret valet code  

You may choose any 1-4-digit code, but the first digit must not be a zero (e.g., 1023 is a valid code, 0123 is not). See 

User-selectable features


Ex am ple

Let’s say you want to set a valet code of 4301:
1. From the 

Table of user-selectable features

, you would note that the 

Set a new secret valet code

 feature is in column 2, row 7.

2. Enter program mode by turning on the ignition, entering your current code, then pressing and holding the 

 button of the PlainView 2 switch for 3

seconds until you hear a chirp.

3. Select column 2 by pressing the blank button twice. After a brief pause, you will hear 2 chirps to  confirm that you have selected feature column 2.

4. Within 5 seconds, select row 7 by pressing and releasing the 

 button 7 times. To help you count, you will hear a chirp each time you press the 

button. After 7 presses, 


 press the blank button, then 


 enter your new code. 

Example: To enter 4301 as your new code, you would press the switch buttons in this manner:  




blank, blank, 




 for the 2-chirp confirmation.

6. Turn off the ignition to exit program mode (you’ll hear a 3-chirp confirmation).


VERY IMPORTANT: You must immediately test your new secret valet code:

 Turn on the ignition, enter your new code, then press and hold the

blank button for 4 seconds. The LED will illuminate to indicate that the system is in valet mode. Turn the ignition off. The system is now in valet mode.

If the LED does not illuminate, the new code you programmed and the one you just entered do not match. In such a
case, the system will revert to the previous code.

8. To exit valet mode and return to normal operation, turn the ignition on and enter your code.

Re mote Con trolled Valet Mode

Valet mode turns off all security features and prevents AutoArming when, for instance, having your  car washed. To turn valet mode on/off, simultaneously
press the 


 buttons. Two parking light flashes confirm valet mode on, one flash confirms valet mode off. The dashboard LED will glow continuously 

when valet mode is on. Your system remains in valet mode until you again press the 


 buttons to turn it off and restore normal operation. This is a

user-selectable feature and may be programmed off if you wish to use this button combination for a  different function.

User- Selectable AutoLock and Aut oUn Lock™

Some vehicles are incompatible with the AutoLock and AutoUnLock features.

For your safety and that of your passengers, the doors automatically lock the instant you turn on the ignition. When you turn the ignition off,

AutoUnLock automatically unlocks the doors. These are user-selectable features.

Dual- Zone Piezo Sen sor & Glass Tam per ing Sensor

The Dual-Zone Piezo Sensor detects theft-related vibrations/ impacts and triggers the alarm. It also has a secondary warning zone that can detect less

serious occurrences — such as someone bumping your car with their car door — and will sound sound a brief warning tone.

Today’s thieves shatter vehicle windows with a small metal punch device that does not create any vibrations for an impact sensor to detect. The Glass

Tampering Sensor detects the sound of glass breaking and triggers the alarm. It will detect most 


, even if the glass does not break in the attempt.

If needed, sensitivity of these sensors can be readjusted by any Authorized Clifford Dealer (preferably your installing dealer). To prevent falsing, system

sensors are bypassed when the engine is remotely started (if you have the IntelliStart 4 option). Ask your Authorized Clifford Dealer about these optional

sensors that will further enhance the security of your vehicle:


Digital Dual-Zone Proximity Sensor 4:

Detects movement inside the passenger compartment and very near the vehicle. If a thief were to lean 

into the passenger compartment, the primary zone of this sensor would trigger the full alarm. However, if a thief was lingering very close to your

windows, a warning tone would sound. Since it can “see” through glass and canvas, this sensor  is particularly well suited for use in convertibles and 

other open or soft-sided vehicles (targa, T-top and Jeep-like vehicles).


Digital Tilt/Motion Sensor:

Detects less than one degree of lifting or any minute motion of the vehicle while completely ignoring all other

conditions that falsely set off all other sensors. Even if you park on a hill, the Digital Tilt/Motion Sensor will accurately respond to the first hint of

tampering to reliably protect your wheels and entire vehicle.

High- Output In sig nia Si ren

This Clifford-engineered siren is more rugged than generic sirens and has these features:


User-selectable chirp volume:

You can control the volume of the arm and disarm chirps. From the factory, your system issues QuietChirps. If

you prefer, you may select the full-volume LoudChirp acknowledgments. See 

User-selectable features.


Remote siren silencing:

If triggered by a non-threatening event, you can silence the siren without remotely disarming. Press button 


the siren is sounding. Two chirps confirm that the sensor activated the alarm and the system is 


 armed. Four chirps confirm that the

system is still armed, but that the ignition is on or the hood, trunk or a door is open and that this may indeed be a 


 theft attempt.


Automatic noise abatement:

Alarm sounding is limited to five siren duration cycles even if a door is left open in the wake of  an intrusion.


Long-term chirp silencing:

You may silence the arm and disarm chirps on a long-term basis until you decide to restore them. Your vehicle’s

parking light flashes will continue to provide visual confirmation of remote controlled system arming and disarming. See 

User-selectable features.


Selectable siren duration (non-European models only*):

You may change the factory set 30-second siren duration to 60 or 90 seconds via

the programming procedure or via the CliffNet Wizard software. See 

User-selectable features.


Personalized Siren Sounds (requires the Self-Powered SmartSiren 4 option) (non-European models only*):

The optional

Self-Powered SmartSiren 4 sounds six different alarm sounds. You may turn any of the six sounds on  or off via the 

User-selectable features

programming to create a different combination of sound patterns. So if you hear a siren at a distance, you will know for sure whether it is your car

or someone else’s. See 

User-selectable features

 (column 1, row 2). What’s more, with the optional Clif fNet Wiz ard software and Da ta Port Replicator

Cable, you may select up to six sounds from more than a dozen different siren sound choices for truly unique customization.


Choose when your Per son al ized Si ren Sounds* play:

For more information at a distance, you may choose to have your Per son al ized Si ren

Sounds “play” every time the alarm is set off, or you may set the system to sound them only upon trigger activation. When set to “trigger only”
the basic siren wail will sound if a 


 is activated, but the Personalized Siren Sounds will play if the hood, trunk or a door is opened.  See

User-selectable features

 (column 1, row 3).

How to in ter pret the LED status in di ca tor

The LED on your car’s dashboard or console will inform you of the system status:

LED Condition



System is disarmed and in normal operating mode (i.e., valet mode is off)


Valet mode is on, the vehicle may be entered without having to disarm

Flashing rapidly (ignition off)

System is armed and protecting your vehicle

Flashing slowly

System is disarmed but the Two-Point AutoImmobilisation has been engaged (European models only)

Flashes, pause, flashes

Either an error (such as arming with the trunk open) or indicates the trigger or sensor that was tripped

   Auto mat ic Battery- Saving Mode  

To conserve vehicle battery power (the LED actually draws more current than the entire control unit), if the system has remained continuously armed for 

48 hours, the flash rate will automatically slow to half the normal rate. After 96 hours, it slows  to one-quarter.

Smart trunk re lease op tion   

If the optional remote trunk release was installed, you may use the 

 button to remotely release the trunk latch. The system’s electronic interlock prevents

unintentional activation of the remote trunk release when you drive, or when the system is armed. The Smart Trunk Release feature requires installer

programming, so if you have the optional trunk release installed, you may want to verify that it will NOT activate when the system is armed. If it can be

activated while armed, causing the alarm to sound, please return to your installing Clifford Dealer and have them correct this (it only takes a couple

minutes and there will be no charge to you).



background image

Timer op tions

The system’s built-in electronic timer can be optionally wired to provide one of several different  functions. Timer duration settings can be made by your

installing Clifford Dealer or by you via the CliffNet Wizard. Ask your Authorized Clifford Dealer for further details:

  Re mote con trolled timed head light activation option  

The timer can be wired to provide remote controlled headlight activation for any duration you wish  between 1 second and 4 minutes, allowing you to
remotely light your way to and from the vehicle by pressing the 

 button on your remote control.

  Win dow AutoClose op tion   

The timer can automatically close the windows upon remote arming on vehicles with an “all-close” feature that raises them if the key is held in the driver's

door (a common feature on several European vehicle models). 

NOTE: Although this timer circuit could be wired to control power windows on non-European cars that do not have
this key-in-the-door “all-close” feature, Clifford Electronics strongly recommends against this. If so wired, the timer
would force the window motors to “shut” the windows even if they were already closed. This places excessive strain
on the vehicle’s window motors, causing overheating, premature failure and even the possibility of  fire. As such, if
you cannot close the windows of your vehicle by turning and holding the key in the driver’s door, do not permit the
system’s timer circuit to be wired to automatically close the windows.

If your car does not have an all-close feature, one or more SmartWindows 4 accessories are needed.  One SmartWindows 4 module can control two power

windows. In addition to automatically closing the power windows every time you arm, SmartWindows 4  also allows you to remotely roll down the

windows after disarming and to remotely vent them open slightly for ventilation on hot days. Inside the car, SmartWindows 4 also provides one-touch full 

open, one-touch full close and one-touch stop to each of your factory window control switches.

Win dow AutoClose In stant By pass  

If you have the timer-based window closure option noted above, you may choose to arm 


 automatically closing the windows. This is handy on hot

days by allowing you to leave one or more windows slightly open while the system remains armed. To  do so, simply turn the ignition switch to “ON” and

then “OFF” rapidly. You will hear a chirp confirmation (this action also activates 

Instant AutoArming bypass

 prevously noted). When you then exit and

arm, the system will 


 close the windows. Normal autoclose operation is restored the next time you arm.

  Turbo timer op tion  

Vehicles that have turbocharged engines often require a cool-down period of one to several minutes  after driving, particularly high-rev driving. Until now, 

drivers of such vehicles had two choices: sit in the car after parking and wait several minutes to  turn off the engine, or have an expensive turbo timer

accessory added that would often interfere with car alarm operation. But with the addition of an optional relay, your system’s timer output can save you

money and make turbo cool-down easy and convenient. If you have this option installed, just press the assigned button or button combination(your

Clifford installer will have told you which he has assigned to this function) on the remote control before shutting off the engine. Then remove your car
key (the engine will continue running), exit, and press the 

 button to arm the system and lock the doors. While the system is armed, your Concept

100 will continue to idle the engine for any duration you choose up to 4 minutes. To ensure against any possibility of false alarms, the system will keep the 

sensors offline while the engine is idling, then automatically bring them back online right after the engine is shut down.

Smart Au toTest ing™

Each time you remotely arm the system, it tests all triggers and sensors. If the 

hood or trunk

 is open, the system will 



4 chirps



indicator light flashes

 instead of the usual 2 and 2. If a


 is ajar, you’ll receive 2 chirps and 2 flashes, then, 

5 seconds later

, there will be 

4 chirps




. If a 


 is malfunctioning, you will receive the usual 2 chirps and 2 flashes, then, 

10 seconds later

, there will be 

4 chirps


4 flashes


NOTE: Since this is a warn ing in di ca tion, you will hear the 4 chirps even if you use the chirp  mut ing fea ture.


Specific malfunction identification:

The system can also indicate the 


 trigger or sensor that is malfunctioning. If you get the

4-chirp/4-flash signal upon arming, perform the following to identify the malfunctioning trigger or sensor:

1. Remotely disarm, then turn on the ignition. The LED status indicator inside your vehicle will be flashing, pause, then repeat.  

2. Count the number of flashes in one cycle between pauses (for your convenience, the flash cycle repeats a total of 5 times) and refer to the chart below:

LED flashes

Mean ing

1 flash

Activation of Glass Tampering Sensor

2 flashes

background image

  Auto matic mal func tion by pass with AutoRe Moni tor ing™  

The system automatically bypasses any faulty point and arms all 


 triggers and sensors for the utmost possible protection. If you accidentally arm with

the hood, trunk or a door open, just close it (no need to disarm-and-rearm) and the system will again monitor that point.

Smart prior in tru sion at tempt alert

If you hear three chirps when you disarm, it means that a trigger or sensor was activated in your absence. When you turn on the ignition, the LED will flash 1-8

times, pause, then repeat the flash cycle 4 more times. Count the flashes in one cycle and refer to the chart above.

Multiple- event To tal Re call™

The system’s memory records the identity of the last eight activated or malfunctioning triggers and sensors, which allows your installer to instantly track down

malfunctions. To identify the triggers and sensors held in the system’s memory, use the following procedure:
1. Remotely arm and disarm while pressing the blank button on the PlainView 2 switch.

2. The LED will flash 1-8 times to indicate the most recently activated point, pause, flash 1-10 times to indicate the second most recently activated

point, and so on.

3. Write down the number of flashes between pauses and refer to the chart above.

With the optional CliffNet Wizard, you’ll see this chronological report right on screen.

Smart Powe rUp™ 2

If power is removed, SmartPowerUp 2 ensures the system automatically restores itself to its previous state when power is restored. So if a thief disconnects 

the power and then restores it in an attempt to start the car, the system will re-arm and instantly sound the siren while continuing to immobilize the

starter. If your vehicle is to be serviced by a mechanic, just put the system in valet mode. If the mechanic needs to interrupt power, your system will

automatically return to its valet mode state when power is restored; there will be no alarm activation.

How to change a user- selectable fea ture:

Briefly, here’s how it will work:

You will pick a feature from the following Table of User-Selectable Features, noting the feature’s  column and row numbers.

You’ll enter program mode by entering your valet code and pressing the 

 button of the dash- or console-mounted PlainView 2

switch until you hear a chirp.

Press the blank PlainView 2 switch button the same number of times as the column number, then the 

 button a number of

times equal to the row number.

  Step- by- step pro gram ming in struc tions  

1. Refer to the 

Table of user-selectable features 

and make note of the column (across) number and the row (down) number of the feature(s) you wish to


2. Turn the ignition on, or start the engine (skip this step if the engine is running).

3. Enter your valet code, then press and hold the 

 button of the PlainView 2 switch for about 4 seconds until you hear a siren chirp.


Select the feature column:

 Press and release the blank button of the PlainView 2 switch the same number of times as the column number you wish.

Pause. You will hear the same number of chirps as the column number, audibly confirming your selection.


Select the feature row:

 Press and release the 

 button the same number of times as the row number. You’ll will hear a chirp each time you press to help

you count.

NOTE: You have 5 sec onds to en ter the row number af ter se lect ing the col umn number. If you wait too long, the sys tem
jumps back to the “Fea ture Se lect” po si tion (this is in di cated with 3 chirps). If you wait an other 60 sec onds, the sys tem
will exit pro gram mode.



. You will hear either one or two chirps: 

Two chirps = ON, one chirp = OFF

 (If there is a 



for the selected feature, perform the actions


NOTE: Some fea tures, such as AutoStart (col umn 2, row 4) used with the optional IntelliStart 4 accessory, have
mul ti ple set tings. Sim ply re se lect the fea ture ad di tional times to prog ress through each  pos si ble set ting.

7. You may now select another feature or exit program mode:

a. To select another feature in that same column, repeat step 5 within the next 5 seconds (after 5 seconds, 3 chirps mean you are back to the

“Feature Select”


b. To select a different feature column, go to step 4.

c. To exit program mode, turn the ignition off (you’ll hear 3 chirps and the LED will turn off). If driving, just wait 60 seconds and the system

will automatically exit program mode.

If you make an er ror, just turn off the ig ni tion and start again.

EX AM PLE: Turn on Lock upon AutoArming and turn off Re mote Valet Mode and FACT:

In the following example, we will change the settings of three different features in just one programming session: We will turn on the Lock upon

AutoArming feature to set your vehicle’s power locks to automatically engage whenever the system AutoArms, turn off remote controlled valet mode and 

turn off the FACT anti-falsing feature:


Enter program mode

 as previously noted (ignition on, enter your valet code, press and hold the 

 button on the PlainView 2 switch until

you hear a chirp).

2. Since the 

Lock upon AutoArming

 feature is in column 3, row 2 of the Table, go to column 3 by pressing the blank button on the PlainView 2

switch three times. Wait for the 3-chirp/column 3 confirmation. Then press the 

 button twice (you’ll hear a chirp each time you press the

 button). After a brief pause, you’ll hear 2 chirps to confirm that 

Lock upon AutoArming

 is now on.

3. Since 


 is also in column 3, there is no need to reselect column 3. Therefore, you can go straight to the  row selection. Select row 4 by

pressing the 

 button four times. After a brief pause, you’ll hear one chirp to confirm that 


 is now off.

4. You’ll note that the 

Remote valet mode

 feature is at column 2, row 3. To change to column 2, press the blank button twice, then wait for  the

2-chirp/column 2 confirmation. Press the 

 button three times to select row 3. After a brief pause, you’ll hear one chirp to confirm that the

Remote valet mode

 feature is now turned off.

5. To exit the program mode, turn the 

ignition off

. You’ll hear 3 chirps to confirm program mode exit.

  Re set All Fea tures  

If you wish to reset all the user-selectable features to their normal factory presets, you can do so simply by choosing the

 Reset all features

 selection (column

1, row 7) on the 

Table of User-Selectable Features

. If you do so, all features — except the programmed remote controls and your valet code — will be  reset

to the factory settings that are indicated in 


 type on the 

Table of User-Selectable Features

. To reset all remote controls, use the 

Clear all remotes


in column 2, row 6. To reset your valet code, use the 

Set a new secret valet code

 feature in column 2, row 7.
