Press and release or Perform before the Arm/lock or Disarm/unlock command to use the remote control in Silent Mode™.

For optional function (trunk release)
Press and hold or activate the auxiliary output, such as trunk release or an expansion function that you have added to your system. The auxiliary output controls:

Remote Start
Press and release Activates (or if On, deactivates) the remote starter. The engine and parking lights turn On.

Note:
The factory setting is one press, but this can also be programmed for two presses (See your authorized Directed installer for the number of presses programmed).

Advanced Commands

Additional Auxiliary Functions.

  • Press and buttons simultaneously Activate the optional auxiliary 4 convenience or expansion function that you have added to your system.
  • Press and buttons simultaneously Activate the optional auxiliary 5 convenience or expansion function that you have added to your system.
  • Press and buttons simultaneously Activate the optional auxiliary 6 convenience or expansion function that you have added to your system.

Timer Mode
Press and buttons simultaneously
There are two types of timer modes and the system can be programmed to perform either one or the other, the factory setting is timed mode. In timed mode, the system allows you to keep the engine warm by automatically activating the remote start every three hours for a maximum of six starting cycles. The temperature mode checks every three hours to see if the temperature threshold of 0°F has been met or exceeded.

If met or exceeded, the vehicle then remote starts and runs for the programmed time, and will check again three hours after shutting off. However, if the threshold isn’t met or exceeded, then the remote start does not activate but will check again later after another three hours have elapsed.

Note:
The timer mode features are activated and deactivated the same way, with the temperature mode automatically exiting after 18  hours.

To activate:

  1. Park the vehicle and set the parking brake.
  2. Press the buttons simultaneously.
  3. The parking lights flash slowly four times.
  4. The remote start activates and runs for the set duration. The system remains remote-started unless shut down by pressing the  button on the remote
  5. Once the remote start shuts down, the vehicle will start every three hours for a maximum of six cycles or until timer mode is canceled by turning on the ignition or activating any of the shutdowns (the parking lights flash slowly four times to confirm Timer Mode is exited).

To deactivate timer mode, turn on the ignition or activate any of the remote start shutdowns (arming and disarming the system or pressing the buttons on the remote will not exit the timer mode). The parking lights flash four times confirming timer mode is exiting.

Note:
The feature exits (if active) when the vehicle is driven, so if timer mode is desired, it needs to be activated again.

Short-run Turbo Mode
Press and buttons simultaneously Short-run turbo mode keeps the engine running for a programmable period after arriving at your destination (check with your authorized Directed dealer for available run times). This allows the system’s timer to conveniently cool down the turbo after you have left the vehicle.

To activate:

  1. Park the vehicle and set the parking brake.
  2. Remove your foot from the brake pedal and leave the engine running.
  3. Press the buttons simultaneously
  4. The parking lights flash to indicate the remote start has entered the short-run turbo mode.
  5. Turn the key to the off position and the engine will continue to run.
  6. Exit and secure the vehicle.
  7. The engine will shut off after the programmed runtime expires.

Optional Rear Window Defogger
When the feature is programmed on, the rear defogger automatically activates during the remote start sequence if the temperature at the control module is below 55°F. If the temperature is greater than 55°F at the control module when the remote start is activated, the rear defogger does not turn on.

Remote and System operations

Passive Arming Locking
The system can be programmed to arm/lock itself to mat cal ly (called passive arming/locking). If the system is programmed for passive arming/ locking, it will automatically arm/lock 30 seconds after the ignition is turned off and the system detects that you have left the vehicle by opening and closing a door. Whenever the system is in its 30-second and passive arming/locking count down, the status LED will flash twice as fast as it does when the system is armed/locked.

At the 20-second point of the countdown, the siren/horn will sound to indicate that the system is about to arm/lock. At the 30-second point, the parking lights will flash to indicate that the system is armed/locked.

Note:
If any protected entry point (such as a door or a switch-protected trunk or hood) is open, the system will not passively arm/lock (unless forced passive arming/locking is programmed on). See “Forced passive arming” under “Programming options” on page 21 of this guide.

Warn Away® Response (security only)

A Warn Away Response consists of the alarm response described below.

  • Shock Sensor – Light impacts to the vehicle will flash the vehicle lights and sound the siren/horn for a few seconds.

Triggered Response (security only)
A Triggered Response can be activated by any of the triggers listed below. The default Triggered Response duration is 30 seconds but can be programmed from 1 to 180 seconds by your installer.

  • Shock Sensor Trigger – Heavy impacts to the vehicle will instantly sound the siren/horn and flash the lights for the programmed duration and report Zone 2.
  • Door Trigger – If a door is opened the siren/horn will sound and lights flash for three seconds, then the siren/horn will sound continuously and the lights will flash for the programmed duration and report Zone 3. The three seconds allow the user time to disarm/ unlock the system with a minimum of noise should a door be opened inadvertently while the system is armed/locked.
  • Hood Trigger – Opening the hood will sound the siren/horn, flash the lights for the programmed duration, and report Zone 6.
  • Trunk Trigger – Opening the trunk (if connected) will instantly sound the siren/horn flash the lights for the programmed duration and report Zone 1.
  • Ignition Trigger – Turning on the ignition key will trip the same progressive response as the door trigger and report Zone 5.

Multi-level Security Arming (security only)
Multi-Level Security Arming allows you to select which of the security system’s inputs or sensors are active, or are bypassed when the system is armed. (See the “Table of zones” on page 19 of this guide).

Press one time to arm the system, siren chirps one time. Pressing again activates Multi-Level Security Arming. Each time is pressed consecutively, a different security level is selected, as described in the following table:

Avital 5105L Remote Start and Security System 3

Each press of the button ascends to the next security level. Multi-Level Security Arming applies to a single arming cycle. The next time the system is armed, all the zones will be active again.

Arming While Driving (security only)
Your security system can be armed while driving the vehicle. Press on the remote control for two seconds while the vehicle is running. The siren/horn will sound once to indicate that the security system is armed, and then once more to indicate that the ignition is on.

The system will not respond to any input except the door triggers, and the starter kill relay (if installed) will not be activated. Once you have arrived at your destination, the system will disarm when the ignition is turned off. The siren/horn will sound twice and the LED will then stop flashing. The system can also be disarmed at any time by pressing.

High-Security Disarm (security only)
High-Security Disarm makes it possible to silence and reset the system when it is triggering, without disarming. If the system is triggered, and the siren sounds for longer than six seconds, pressing the button will stop the trigger and return the system to an armed state.

The system does not disarm, but rather reset. This prevents you from disabling the system should you want to disarm it without visually checking the vehicle. Pressing the button again after resetting the system, will disarm the system. Pressing the button during the first six seconds of the triggered sequence disarms the system immediately. The six-second time is provided for your convenience, in case you accidentally trigger the system.

System (Emergency) Override
If your remote control is lost or damaged, you can manually disarm your vehicle security system or disable the optional starter kill. To disarm or disable the system without remote control, you must have the vehicle’s ignition key.

To disarm or disable the system:

  1. Turn the ignition to the ON position.
  2. Press and release the control center button the preset number of times (one to five times) within 15 seconds (the factory default setting is 1 press). After five seconds, the system will disarm/disable. If the system does not disarm/disable, you may have waited too long. Start over by turning the ignition off and on.

Important:
The control center button can be programmed to respond to 1-5 presses for the disarm/disable function. You must check with the installer to verify the programming for your unit.

Valet® Mode
You can prevent your system from automatically arming/locking and triggering by using Valet Mode. This is very useful when washing the ve hi cle or having it serviced. In Valet Mode, the system/starter kill will not arm/enable, even with the remote control, but all convenience functions (door locks, trunk release, etc.) will continue to work normally. To enter or exit Valet Mode:

  1. Turn the ignition on.
  2. Turn the ignition off.
  3. Press and release the control center button within 10 seconds.

To enter or exit Valet Mode using the remote control:

  1. Open any vehicle door.
  2. Press.
  3. Press and then press again.

The status LED lights solidly if you are entering Valet Mode, and goes off when you exit Valet Mode.

Remote Start
This feature allows you to remotely start and run your vehicle for a programmable period. This makes it possible to warm up the engine, as well as adjust the interior temperature per the temperature of the vehicle with the climate control system. If interior heating or cooling is desired, the climate controls must be preset, and the fan blower must be set to the desired level before remote starting the vehicle.

Warning!
(1) Never remote start your vehicle when the keys are in the ignition, except when performing Pit Stop mode, and (2) Never start the vehicle if it is not in PARK or NEUTRAL. (3) Do not activate the remote start if the vehicle has a manual transmission.

To remote start the vehicle:

  • Ensure the parking brake is set, and press on the remote control once (or the amount of times the system has been programmed to activate the remote start, see “Remote start” on page 5). The parking lights flash to confirm that the vehicle will attempt to start.
  • With gas vehicles, the engine starts four seconds after the parking lights flash. With diesel vehicles, the engine starts when the WAIT-TO-START indicator on the dashboard goes out or the programmed delay has ended.
  • Once the vehicle has started, it runs for the pre-programmed period (either 12, 24, or 60 minutes; See Programming Options section) or until a shutdown input is triggered.

Warning!
It is unsafe to operate a vehicle’s motor in a garage or other closed-off area. Breathing the exhaust from the vehicle is hazardous to your health. Never activate the remote start in an enclosed space.

When you are ready to drive the vehicle:

  1. Insert the ignition key and turn it to the On position.
  2. Press the brake pedal.
  3. Disengage the parking brake.
  4. Place the vehicle in gear and drive to your destination.

Note:
If the brake pedal is pressed or the parking brake is disengaged before the key is in the ON position, the engine will shut down.

While the vehicle is running during remote start operation, the system monitors the vehicle and automatically shuts down the engine if the system receives any of the following:

  • The brake pedal is pressed
  • The hood is opened
  • The shutdown toggle switch is put into the Off position
  • The parking brake is disengaged.
  • Runtime (12, 24, or 60 minutes) expires
  • The remote start activation procedure from the remote is repeated.

Pit Stop Mode
The Pit Stop mode feature allows the vehicle to remain running after the key has been removed from the ignition. This feature is useful for occasions when you wish to exit and lock the vehicle for short periods, but would like to leave the motor running and the climate controls on.

To perform Pit Stop mode:

  1. Before turning off the engine, ensure the parking brake is set, then press and release on the remote control the number of times the system has been programmed to activate the remote start (or press and release the optional momentary switch). Then wait five seconds.
  2. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position, the engine will continue running.
  3. Exit and secure the vehicle.
  4. When returning to the vehicle simply disarm the system and follow the previous “When you are ready to drive the vehicle” information.

Note:
If you are away from the vehicle for an extended amount of time, the remote start will shut off after the programmed runtime expires or when a shutdown input is received (see the previous Remote Start section for a complete list of shutdown inputs).

This feature will not work if the brake pedal is being pressed or the parking brake is disengaged.

Nuisance Prevention Circuitry

Your system has Directed’s Nuisance Prevention Circuitry® (NPC). It prevents annoying repetitive trigger sequences due to faulty door pin switches or en vi ron men tal con di tions such as thunder, jackhammers, or airport noise. For example, if the alarm is triggered three times within 60 minutes, and each time the same sensor or switch triggers the alarm, NPC will interpret those triggers as false alarms. After the third trigger, NPC ignores, or bypasses, that sensor or switch (along with any other sensors or switches sharing the same zone) for 60 minutes.

If the bypassed sensor tries to trigger the system while it is being bypassed, the 60-minute bypass period starts over. This ensures that a sensor that continually triggers will remain bypassed. Doors are covered by NPC differently – if the alarm is triggered by an open door for three full cycles, the doors are bypassed until the trigger ceases. NPC is On/Off programmable, except doors are always covered whether on or off.

See your dealer and the Programming section of this guide for more information. Arming and disarming the system does not reset this function. To reset a bypassed zone, the same zone must not trigger for 60 minutes, or when the ignition is turned on. If testing your system, it is important to remember that the NPC programming can cause zones to be bypassed and appear to stop working. If five chirps are heard when disarming, NPC has been engaged. If you wish to clear the NPC memory, turn the ignition key on.

Power Saver Mode

Your system will automatically enter Power Saver mode while armed or in Valet mode, after some time in which no operation has been performed. This lowers the current draw to the vehicle’s battery. Power Saver Mode takes over under the following conditions:

  • Power Saver when the system is armed: After the system has been armed for 24 hours, the control center LED will flash at half its normal rate, decreasing the system’s current draw.
  • Power Saver in Valet Mode: When the system enters Valet Mode the control center LED illuminates steadily. If the vehicle is not used(ignition is not turned on) for one hour while the system is in Valet Mode, the LED will shut off.
  • If the system remains in Valet Mode, the LED will come back on the next time the ignition is turned on and then back off.

Diagnostics (security only)

The microprocessor at the heart of your security system is constantly monitoring all of the switches and sensors that are connected to it. It detects any faulty switches and sensors and prevents them from disabling the entire system. The microprocessor will also record and report any triggers that occurred during your absence. Refer to the System Status Chirps and Table of Zones charts for diagnostic information.

Arming Diagnostics
If the system is armed while input is active – door open, sensor triggering – the unit will chirp once when arming and then one more time a few seconds later. This is called Bypass Notification. Bypass Notification will not occur when using Silent Mode or if chirps have been programmed OFF. The security system will continually ignore the zone that was active until the input stops.

Three seconds after the input stops, the system monitors that input normally. For example, if your vehicle has an interior light exit delay, and you arm it before the interior light goes out, you may hear Bypass Notification chirps. Once the light shuts off, the doors are mon i stored normally.

Disarming Diagnostics
Extra disarm chirps are the Tamper Alert. If four chirps are heard when disarming, the system was triggered in your absence. If five chirps are heard, a zone was triggered so many times that Nui since Prevention®Circuitry has bypassed that zone (see “Nuisance prevention circuitry” on page 14 of this guide). The control center LED indicates which zone was involved (see “Table of Zones” on page 19).

The system retains this information in its memory and continues to chirp four or five times each time it is disarmed until the next time the ignition key is turned on.

Table of Zones
A zone is represented by the number of control center LED flashes used by the system to identify a particular type of input. Standard input assignments are listed in the following table, along with spaces to write in any optional sensors or switches that have been installed.

Avital 5105L Remote Start and Security System 4

Interpreting Zone Diagnostics
Warn Away responses are not reported by arming or disarming diagnostics. If you receive a Bypass notification when arming or a Tamper Alert notification when disarming, look at the LED in the vehicle. Active or triggered zones will be indicated by a pattern of blinks by the LED.
For example: If zone 3 was active or triggered, the LED will blink three times with a two-second pause. Then it will blink three times again, and repeat until the ignition is turned on. Your system stores the last two triggered zones in memory.

If your system has been triggered but the LED has been reset by turning on the ignition, your dealer can still recall the last two zones that were triggered. Contact your authorized dealer for details.

Owner Recognition

Owner Recognition is a feature available exclusively from Directed. Using the Directed Bitwriter®, a hand-held programming tool, your dealer can program many of the system settings. The programmer makes it possible to program different settings for each remote control that is used with the system. Then, whenever a specific remote control is used, the system will recall the settings assigned to that remote control.

Owner Rec recognition lets up to four users of the system have different settings that meet their specific needs. It is almost like having four separate alarms in your vehicle, one for each user. Owner Recognition cannot be programmed without a Directed Bitwriter and the necessary software. Check with your dealer for more information.

Rapid Resume Logic

This Directed system will store its current state in non-volatile memory. If power is lost and then reconnected, the system will recall the stored state from memory. This means if the unit is in Valet Mode and the battery is disconnected for any reason, such as servicing the vehicle when the battery is disconnected ed the unit will still be in Valet Mode. This applies to all states of the system including arm, disarm, and Valet Mode.

Programming Options
Programming options control what your system does during normal operation and require few or no additional parts. However, some may require additional installation labor.

The following is a list of the program settings, with the factory settings in Bold:

  • Active arming (only with the remote) or passive arming (au to mat ic arming 30- seconds after the last door has been closed).
  • Arming/disarming confirmation siren chirps On or off.
  • The ignition-controlled door lock feature On or Off: With this feature on, the doors will lock three seconds after the ignition is turned on, and the doors are closed, and unlock when the ignition is turned off. With this feature off, the system will not lock the doors when the ignition is turned on and will not unlock the doors when the ignition is turned off. Ignition lock and unlock are independent features and can be programmed separately, when using the Bitwriter.
  • Passive door locking (with passive arming) or active door locking (only when arming with the remote). Passive locking allows the vehicle’s doors to lock when the security system passively arms (after the 30-second countdown). This feature only works if passive arming has been programmed. When programmed for passive arming and active lock, if the system is disarmed without a door being opened, the system will re-lock the doors when it passively rearms.
  • Panic mode enabled/disabled with the ignition on Some states have laws against sirens ca pa bil I ty in a moving vehicle.
  • Forced passive arming On or off: If your system is programmed for passive arming and the forced passive arming feature has been gram on, the system will passively arm after one hour, even if a protected entry has been left open.
  • This feature is useful if a door has been left ajar when leaving the vehicle. Forced passive arming ensures that the security system will be armed in every situation. When the system passively arms after one hour, the entry point that has been left open, and anything connected to the same zone, is bypassed and cannot trigger the system. However, the remaining inputs to the system are fully operational.
  • Automatic Engine Disable (AED) on or Off: The purpose of this feature is to protect the vehicle from being stolen at all times, regardless of whether or not the alarm is armed. If AED is programmed on, the starter of the vehicle will be disabled 30 seconds after the ignition is turned off.
  • Once the key is turned off, the in-vehicle LED will flash slowly (one-half its normal armed rate) to indicate the AED arming cycle. Thirty seconds later, the starter of the vehicle will be disabled.

To start the vehicle, it will be necessary to disarm the system with the remote. It is also possible to disarm the AED feature by turning the ignition key to the RUN position and pressing the Control center button the programmed number of times. AED is disabled when the system is in Valet Mode. This feature only functions if theFailsafe® Starter Kill relay has been installed.

  • Full trigger response 30 or 60 seconds: This determines how long the full triggered sequence lasts. Some states have laws regulating how long a security system can sound before it is considered a nuisance. If your installer is programming the security system with the Directed Bitwriter, the full triggered response can be programmed for any duration ranging from 1 to 180 seconds.
  • Nuisance Prevention Circuitry On or Off: Please refer to the NPC section of this manual for a complete explanation of how NPC operates. If NPC is programmed off, the se cu ri ty system will respond to inputs from any sensor in defi nite ly. Because many states have laws regulating security systems, programming NPC® off may cause your system to violate state laws.
  • Progressive door trigger On or Off: When the system is armed and a door is opened, the system responds with ten chirps before beginning the full triggered sequence. If an instant trigger is desired, the progressive door trigger can be programmed off.
  • Valet pulse count: The number of presses of the control center button required to disarm the security system or AED, the system can be programmed from one to five presses.
  • Comfort Closure: Windows will close upon arming the system.

Security & Convenience Expansions

Listed are some of the many expansion options available. Please contact your dealer to find out about all the convenience options available to you.

  • Audio Sensor: Metal on glass, cracking glass, and breaking glass each produce distinctive acoustic signatures. The 506T audio sensor uses a microphone to pick up sounds, and then using proprietary acoustic software, analyzes the sounds to determine if the glass was struck.
  • Backup Battery: The 520T keeps the system armed, triggers the alarm, and keeps the starter kill active if the main battery power is disconnected.
  • Field Disturbance Sensor: An invisible dome of coverage is established by installing the 508D “radar” sensor. Your security system can then react to any intrusions into this field with the triggered sequence. Headlight and Parking Light Automation: The 545T Nite-Lite will automatically turn on your parking and headlights when it gets dark. In addition, the 545T will turn your headlights on whenever the windshield wipers are used. A remote control function can also be used to turn on your parking and headlights for a programmed time.
  • Power Trunk Release: The trunk release output of the system can operate a factory power release for the vehicle’s trunk or hatch. (An additional relay may be required.) If the factory release is not power activated, then Directed’s 522T trunk release solenoid can often be added. Power Window Control: Automatic power window control is vid ed with the 529T and 535T systems.
  • Tilt Sensor: The 507M tilt sensor can be added to your system to protect your vehicle when it’s parked. An alarm is triggered if the vehicle is lifted, to protect expensive rims.
  • Ultrasonic Sensor: This provides a field of protection inside your vehicle, the 509U Ultrasonic sensor, protects your belongings.

System Maintenance

This system needs no specific maintenance beyond remote control battery replacement. Depending on your remote control type, the remote is powered by either two 3V, CR2016 batteries or one 3V CR2032 battery (see back of remote control for details on battery type used).

Battery replacement

  1. Using a small flat-head screwdriver, insert it into the slot located along the edge of the remote control and carefully pry the unit open.
  2. Turn the unit over and carefully remove the rear housing. Remove the battery from the holder and replace it with a new one.
  3. Reassemble all parts and snap them together.

Note.
Verify that the battery polarity is correct when replacing.

Battery Disposal
Directed cares about the environment. If you need to dispose of the battery, please do so by your municipal requirements for battery disposal.

Glossary of Terms

  • Control Module (unit)
    The “brain” of your system. Usually hidden under the dash area of the vehicle. It houses the microprocessor which monitors your vehicle and controls all of the system’s functions.
  • Control Center
    The Control Center, typically located on the upper part of the front windshield houses the antenna. It receives commands from your remote control.
  • Control Center Button (also called: Control button or Valet switch)
    A small push button on the control center is also called the valet switch or valet button. It is used to override and disarm the alarm when a remote is not available, to enter or exit Valet Mode, and to program the system.
  • Control Center LED (also called: Status LED)
    A light mounted on the control center is used to indicate the status of your system such as triggers and faults in the system or sensors.
  • FailSafe Starter Kill
    A switch controlled by the security system which once activated prevents the vehicle’s starter from cranking when the system is armed. The vehicle is never prevented from cranking when the system is disarmed, in Valet mode – or if the starter interrupt switch fails. Installation may require additional labor.
  • input
    A physical connection to the system. Input may be provided by a sensor, a pin-switch, or through an existing system in the vehicle, such as ignition or courtesy lights.
  • Remote Control 1-way
    A hand-held remote control, also called a transmitter commands and operates the various functions of your system but does not provide feedback.
  • Siren
    Noise generating device is usually installed in the engine compartment of the vehicle. It generates the “chirps” and the tones you hear when the alarm is triggered.

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 install menu wheel.

It is the user’s sole responsibility to properly handle and keep out of reach from children all remote control transmitters to ensure that the system does not unintentionally remotely start the vehicle. THE USER MUST INSTALL A CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR IN OR ABOUT THE LIVING AREA ADJACENT TO THE VEHICLE.

ALL DOORS LEADING FROM ADJACENT LIVING AREAS AND THE ENCLOSED OR PARTIALLY ENCLOSED VEHICLE STORAGE 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 procedures 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
