  • Climate settings are automatically set to "Last Setting". This means that where ever you left the climate controls when you exited the vehicle is what will kick on when you activate remote start
  • OPTIONAL PARKING LIGHT WIRE CONNECTION - this wire will be needed for parking lights to illuminate during remote start mode. This wire is NOT needed for operation or programming.
  • LOCK/UNLOCK WIRES - these wires will only need to be connected when using our Long Range Remote Kit or App Module. If you are not using either of these add-ons, then you will not need to connect the lock/unlock wires.
