Remote Car Starter Installation Manual for Model 40027, 40027T - page 4 / 20





4 / 20

15. Blue - Horn/Siren - Control Harness The BLUE wire signals the horn to honk (or siren to chirp) once each time the remote starter starts the vehicle and each time the locks are locked or un- locked. Connect the blue wire to the factory horn wire which is often found running down the steering column. It will normally show +12 Volts at rest and the voltage will disappear when the horn is honked.This is a 400 mA transistor ground output which MUST drive a relay if using a siren or positively trig- gered horn. Positive Horn/Siren Relay

16. Brown/White - Alarm Disable - Control Harness The BROWN/WHITE wire is Alarm Disable, which will give out a quick negative pulse just before unlocking the doors or starting the vehicle. This wire can be used to turn off the factory alarm system in vehicles which have them. In most vehicles, this wire is located in the driver’s kick panel.

17. White/Black Wire - Ignition #3 - Control Harness The WHITE/BLACK wire, is a ground output that acts just like the Ignition 1 or Ignition 2 relay outputs (active in the “run” and “crank” positions). This wire is a 400 mA negative transistor output and MUST be set up to power a relay (not in- cluded). It can be used to power the third ignition wire at the key (necessary for most Ford vehicles). Ignition 3 To LARGE 12 Volt Constant Wire (Found in Ignition Switch Wire Harness) White/Black Wire From Remote Starter 87 87A 30 85 86 To Additional Ignition Wire (in vehicle)

This is the wire that can also be used to bypass a passive anti-theft system by hooking it up to the Universal Alarm Bypass Module. See the Factory Anti-Theft System Section at the end of the instructions.

18. Keyless Entry Wires-White/Red-Yellow/Red-Control Harness

The wires function as follows:

White/Red Yellow/Red

Negative Trigger – Unlock Negative Trigger – Lock

Positive Trigger – Lock Positive Trigger – Unlock

Determine the polarity of your door lock system by using a test meter. For NEGATIVE locks (the lock wire sees a ground signal briefly as the electric locks are locked) – connect the Red/Black wire to the Unlock wire and the Red/White wire to the Lock wire.

For POSITIVE locks (the lock wire sees a +12 volt signal briefly as the electric locks are locked but does not see ground when they are inactive) connect the White/Red wire to the Lock wire and the Yellow/Red wire to the Unlock wire.

For REVERSING POLARITY (the lock wires sees a +12 volt signal briefly as the electric locks are locked and sees a ground signal when they are inactive) follow the diagram below:

v5.3 (40027)


19. Green/White - Trunk Release - Control Harness The GREEN/WHITE wire is the Trunk Release output which gives out a transistor ground output when the unlock button is held for 4 seconds. Again, this is a 400 mA transistor ground output which MUST drive a relay (not included).

Negative Trunk Release

Positive Trunk Release

Green/White Wire From Remote Starter



87A 30


Ground (-)

To 12 Volt Constant (15 Amp Fused)

Green/White Wire From Remote Starter



87A 30


To 12 Volt Constant (15 Amp Fused)

To Trunk Release (in vehicle)

To Positive Trunk Release (in vehicle)


You must have hooked up all required wires and completed Initializa- tion (Step 11) to proceed forward.

20. Trying the Unit Out WARNING: Be prepared to apply the brake during this testing.

  • A.

    Close the hood and fully apply the emergency brake

  • B.

    Place the vehicle in Park.

  • C.

    Push the On/Off switch once – the red LED will turn on solid Red.

  • D.

    Once all the wiring is checked and is correct, press the Start button on the transmitter.

  • E.

    The car should start and continue to run for ten minutes. Make sure that the engine shuts down if the car is shifted out of park, the hood is opened, the brake is pressed or the start button is pushed again. If the car does not start, see Special Cases or Code Learning section under Special Cases.

      The Antenna

Feed the antenna around under the dash and up the inside of the right or left windshield post and over the top of the windshield. Clean the windshield with the rubbing alcohol pad, wait to dry. Slip the rubber antenna into the hard plastic antenna clip. Remove the backing from the double sided tape and mount the antenna behind the rear view mirror. The more exposed the antenna is, the better the range and performance. Now plug the end of the antenna into the remote starter module. In some vehicles you will get better range performance if the antenna is pointing vertically down- ward from the top of the windshield.

THE WIRING SECTION OF THE INSTALLATION IS NOW COMPLETE. Be sure to cap all unused wires so as to prevent short circuits, and mount the module securely under the dash. When tying up and mounting the unit, be sure to avoid any moving parts (steering column, pedals) and sharp edges.

22. Trouble Shooting with the Self Diagnostics The remote starter contains a built in diagnostic routine that will indicate why the unit started or why the unit turned off the car the last time that the unit was used.

To activate the diagnostic mode for why it turned off, simply turn the On/Off control switch to the “OFF” position, the LED will turn Green. In a few seconds, the Green LED on the switch will flash 1 to 12 times to identify the problem. See the chart below for an explanation of the flashes:

1 flash

2 flashe


10/15 minute time out. Unit should be fine. Make sure the transmitter is working properly. Unit turned off because Brake or Hood was activated. Check

3 flashes

to make sure the hood pin switch is depressed when the hood is closed and the correct brake wire is hooked up. No Tach or Stalled. Review Step 12 and make sure the no tach/tach wire option is programmed correctly.
