Glossary of Terms
Control Unit: The “brain” of your system. Usually hidden under-
neath the dash area of the vehicle. It houses the microprocessor
which monitors your vehicle and controls all system functions.
Starter Kill: An automatic switch controlled by your sys-
tem which prevents the vehicle’s starter from cranking whenever
the system is armed. The vehicle is never prevented from cranking
when the system is disarmed, in Valet Mode, or if the starter kill
switch itself fails. Your system has feature-ready circuitry for the
starter kill, however installation may require additional labor.
LED: A blue light mounted at a discretionary location inside the
vehicle. It is used to indicate the status of your system.
Transmitter: A hand-held, remote control which operates the var-
ious functions of your system.
Valet Button: A small push button mounted at a discretionary
location inside the vehicle. It is used to override the Failsafe
Starter Kill when a transmitter is lost or damaged, or to enter or
exit Valet Mode.
