The 2-Way transmitter has an operating range of 2-3 times that of the factory transmitter(s) At times you may notice a decrease in operating range. This is normal for any RKE system. If the transmitter does not work, try the following:
  • Check the distance. You may be too far from your vehicle. You may need to stand closer during rainy or snowy weather.
  • Check the location. Other vehicles or objects may be blocking the signal. Take a few steps to the left or right.
  • Check the position of the transmitter. You may need to hold the transmitter higher or at a different angle.
Holding the transmitter with the antenna pointing upward is the optimal position.

This system includes an antenna which has been installed in your vehicle. Depending on your vehicle, this antenna may or may not be visible. The antenna's location in your vehicle is critical to achieving the extended operating range. Relocating the antenna will affect system performance, Adding window tint, body moldings kits, and tool boxes. etc. can negatively affect the operating range if they block the transmitter's signal to the vehicle's antenna.
Due to the vehicle structure, the transmitting range of the 2-Way transmitter may be greater than the transmitting range of the vehicle. The vehicle may perform a requested command, but the transmitter may not receive the response.

Functionality of the 2-way Advanced Remote Start system is simple; it transmits the function you request to the vehicle and then receives confirmation or information from the vehicle to complete your request. The features and controls have been divided into three basic groups -standard, secondary and enhanced. Standard features are Lock, Unlock and Remote Start. Secondary features are Trunk Lid Release, Lift glass Open, Power Lift gate Open/Close and Vehicle Locator/Panic Alarm. Enhanced features are those included in the Enhanced Function Menu and 2nd Vehicle Mode.

The display screen will become active when any button on the 2-Way transmitter is pressed. The main display will show the Vehicle Frame icon (with or without door segments depending on last command confirmed), current time (if equipped), Audible Feedback / Silent Mode icon and the icon for the last command confirmed (Lock with Security icon is shown) Depending on the function you are trying to perform, you may also see the Transmit/Receive icon.

RESPONSE NOT RECEIVED:
Although the 2-Way Advanced Remote Start system has enhanced range capabilities, occasionally the vehicle may not receive the command from the transmitter or the transmitter may not receive the response signal from the vehicle. The transmitter has a Response Not Received feature to alert you that the cycle was not completed.
Examples of when a Response Not Received may be experienced:
  • Transmitter is out of range of the Vehicle.
  • Transmitter button was not held down long enough for the requested command. (i.e remote start, panic, etc.)
The vehicle may perform the function, but the transmitter may not receive confirmation. When the command and response cycle is not complete, the display alternates between security lock and car frame. The transmitter will beep four (4) times to alert you of the response not received. These beeps will be audible regardless whether the transmitter is in Audible Feedback or Silent Mode.

LOCK: Press the Lock button to lock all the doors. Once the response is received, the display will show the Lock icon in the center, the Vehicle Frame icon will show all door segments filled-in and the transmitter will beep once.  The transmitter will beep the number of times described here only if Audible Feedback is on, not if it is in Silent Mode.

LOCKWITH SECURITY (if equipped): Press the Lock button with the ignition off to lock all doors and to arm the vehicle's content theft-deterrent alarm system. Once the response is received, the display will show the Lock with Security icon in the center, the Vehicle Frame icon will show all door segments filled-in and the transmitter will beep once.

UNLOCK (driver's door only): Press the Unlock button to unlock the driver's door and disarm the content theft-deterrent alarm system (if equipped). Once the response is received, the display will show the Unlock icon in the center, the Vehicle Frame icon will show the driver's door segment missing; i.e. driver's door unlocked, and the transmitter will beep twice.

UNLOCK (all doors): Press the Unlock button twice within three seconds to unlock all doors and disarm the content theft-deterrent alarm system (if equipped). Once the response is received, the display will show the Unlock icon in the center, the Vehicle Frame will show all door segments missing to represent all doors unlocked and the transmitter will beep twice each time the Unlock button is pushed.

REMOTE VEHICLE START:
Laws in some communities may restrict the use of remote starters For example, some laws may require a person using remote start to have the vehicle in view when doing so. Check local regulations for any requirements on remote starting of vehicles.

TO REMOTE STARTYOUR VEHICLE:
Press and release the lock button and then press and hold the Remote Start button for more than 2 seconds to start the vehicle. Once the response is received, the display will show the Remote Start icon. The transmitter will beep once to confirm the remote start command was received.

Once the vehicle is started, a response is sent to the transmitter, activating a countdown timer.  If the engine doesn't start successfully, or the response is not received, the timer will flash a series of dashes, the Remote Start icon will disappear, and the transmitter will beep three times.

To check if the vehicle started without the response being received, press the lock button when closer to the vehicle. Once the response is received, although the timer will not be displayed, the Remote Start icon will be displayed to show the vehicle is started.
If you start the vehicle with the ignition key before the timer expires, the display will come on, the timer will flash a series of dashes, and the transmitter will beep twice.  If the countdown timer reaches 20 seconds, the display will come on, and the transmitter will beep once.

If outside operating range, Fuel Level will display reading from the last successful response received from the vehicle. If the fuel tank is low on fuel, and your vehicle's low fuel warning is being displayed, the Fuel Level icon will flash.

TIRE PRESSURE (ifequipped):
While in the Enhanced Function Menu, press the Right Side button until the Tire Pressure icon is highlighted. The transmitter will automatically scroll through the four tires in a clock-wise fashion starting with the left front tire and show tire pressure readings in the lower right hand corner of the display. During the scrolling process the tire pressure readings can also be selected one at a time by pressing the Left Side button one time, the display will stop auto-scrolling and remain on a single tire until the Left Side out1on is pressed again, advancing to the next tire. The readings will be current if you are within operating range of the vehicle. If outside operating range, Tire Pressure will display readings from the last successful response received from the vehicle.
If a tire is flashing slowly anytime the display is on, the pressure in that tire needs to be checked. The tire is either significantly under-inflated or overfilled. More than one tire can be flashing at a time. Have the tire pressures set to those indicated on the Tire Loading Information label as soon as you can. (See your vehicle owner manual for more information.)

2nd VEHICLE MODE:
The transmitter has the ability to operate a second vehicle equipped with a 2-Way Advanced Remote Start System. Press and release the Left Side button twice within one second. 2 (the 2nd Vehicle icon) will display and the transmitter will enter 2nd Vehicle Mode and beep three times. The transmitter will stay in this mode until the Left Side button is pressed and released twice within one second again. If there is no second vehicle matched to the transmitter, the 2nd Vehicle icon will slowly flash and a series of dashes will appear across the bottom of the display. The transmitter is only designed to control one vehicle at a time. If you remote start one vehicle, and then enter 2nd Vehicle Mode, the transmitter will not accurately keep the countdown timer on the first vehicle.

BatteryReplacement
When the transmitter battery needs replacing, the "REPLACE BATTERY IN REMOTEKEY" or "KEYFOBBATTERYLOW" message will be displayed in the vehicle's DIC. Please perform the following steps.  Note: In some instances you may experience a decrease in RKE range, however the transmitter battery may not need replacing, please refer to Explanation of Operating Range.
  1. Pry open the transmitter by inserting a flat object with a thin edge STarting at the notch located near the key ring opening. 
  2. After separating the bottom half from the top half of the transmitter, remove the old battery by prying it upward.
  3. Snap in a new battery with the positive side of the battery facing down. Use a type CR2450 battery.
  4. Snap the front and the back of the transmitter together. Make sure the cover is on tightly, so water will not get in.
