KEYLESS ENTRY ALARM UPGRADE MODULE

Congratulations on your purchase of the PRO 9232a automotive Keyless Entry

Upgrade Alarm System. This system is a state - of - the - art auto security system that is designed to automatically arm and disarm when it receives a command from your existing Factory Keyless Entry Transmitter. Taking a few moments to read this manual will help to ensure that your vehicle is protected at all times.

The system has the ability to beep the vehicle's horn, sound a siren, or both. Where a beep or chirp is mentioned, consider either or both may sound.

ARMING THE SYSTEM : ( ACTIVE )

1. Turn the ignition key off, exit the vehicle, and close all doors.

2. Press and release the Lock button on the keychain transmitter.

3. The siren and or horn will beep one time, the parking lamps will flash one time, and the red dash mounted LED will begin to slowly flash, indicating that the system is ARMED.

If the siren/horn sounds 3 chirps, then you have left a door, trunk, or hood lid ajar.

Simply close the opened entry point to provide full protection. If the siren "chirped" three times, sometime after arming, the exclusive delayed dome light learn circuit has been programmed and the system detected a open entry point after the learned delay expired. Again, closing the hood, trunk, or doors will correct the problem and you do not need to disarm the system to make the correction. If the siren/horn did not sound when arming, then the chirps have been turned off, and you should refer to the section titled ELIMINATING THE ARM / DISARM CHIRPS in this manual.

4. Any time the door lock switch in the vehicle is used to lock the doors while the ignition key is turned off, the system will immediately arm. To lock the doors after entering the vehicle, make sure the ignition key is switched on first.

Turning the ignition key on first will stop the system from arming.

ARMING THE SYSTEM : ( PASSIVE )

1. Turn the ignition key off, exit the vehicle, and close all doors.

2. The dash mounted LED will begin to flash rapidly, indicating that the system

is automatically ( passively ) arming. As an added convenience, the 30 second automatic passive arming will not begin until all doors are closed, allowing passengers to exit the vehicle at their convenience.

3. In 30 seconds, you will hear a single short chip from the siren, and the vehicles parking lamps will flash one time, indicating that the system has ARMED. At this time, the red dash mounted LED will begin to flash slowly, providing a visual indication that the system is fully armed.

4. It is possible to program the system, that when the alarm is allowed to automatically passive arm, there will be a 15 second delay after a door is opened before thealarm will sound. However, if the system is programmed for instant trigger there will be no delay. Check with your installer for the setting of this feature.

IMPORTANT! When the system is programmed for passive arming, the system will always arm, even when the keychain transmitter has not

been used to lock the doors.

When you leave the vehicle, and a door has been left opened, the system will arm after 10 minutes. If you plan to vacuum the car, or if service work is being performed, either leave the key in the ignition and switched to the on position, or put the system into valet mode. If you do not do this, the system will arm in

10 minutes, and you will probably inadvertently trip the alarm.

PROTECTION WHILE THE SYSTEM IS ARMED :

1. Opening any door, hood, or trunk will cause the alarm to immediately sound. The alarm will continue to sound for 30 seconds, then stop and automatically re - arm the vehicle. If the potential thief left a door opened, the alarm will sound for five more

30 second cycles, then re - arm and ignore the opened door zone.

2. Whenever the system is armed, the red dash mounted LED indicator will slowly flash. This serves as a visual deterrent to the potential thief. The LED is a very low current bulb, and will not cause the vehicles battery to drain, even when the vehicle is left unattended for extended periods.

3. Whenever the system is triggered, the vehicles parking lights will flash for the

30 second alarm cycle, attracting added visual attention to the vehicle.

4. Whenever the system is armed, the vehicles starter will be disabled. The vehicle will not start.

DISARMING THE SYSTEM :

1. As you approach the vehicle, press and release the unlock button on the keychain transmitter.

2. The siren and or horn will beep two times, the parking lamps will flash two times, and the red dash mounted LED will turn off, indicating that the system is DISARMED. If the optional entry illumination feature has been

installed, the vehicles interior lights will turn on for 30 seconds, or until the ignition key is turned on.

NOTE: If your system has been programmed for passive arming , then it will
