END USER TERMS OF USE

ADS products are designed to remote start vehicles from a distance. In order to ensure your iDatastart system meets all safety regulations and operates as intended by the manufacturer, please follow the usage recommendations below:
• DO NOT use this product for any purpose other than its intended usage.
• DO NOT remote start a vehicle in an indoor or enclosed area (i.e. garage). Exhaust fumes are extremely dangerous and can cause personal injury or death. Install carbon monoxide detectors in every living area that can be exposed to vehicle exhaust fumes.
• DO NOT remote start a vehicle while it is being serviced. Follow the Valet Mode procedure as outlined in your Owner’s Manual.
• DO NOT remote start a vehicle in gear.
• DO NOT remote start a vehicle with the key in the ignition.
• DO NOT remote start a vehicle left unattended with open windows, unlocked doors or open convertible top.
• DO NOT allow children handle or operate long range remotes.
• ALWAYS engage your emergency brake prior to exiting your vehicle. This may limit motion if the vehicle is accidentally started in gear.
• AVOID remote starting your vehicle while passengers or pets are on board. This may increase the risk of shifter being put in gear after vehicle has been remote started.
• AVOID parking your vehicle on an inclined surface or an area surrounded by obstacles. For manual vehicles, ALWAYS ensure the Reservation Mode sequence, as outlined in your Owner’s Manual, is correctly engaged prior to the next remote start.
• AVOID delaying the inspection of your iDatastart system in the event of malfunction. Immediately contact a Certified Technician to ensure that installation or defective equipment is properly addressed.

REMOTE STARTING FROM FACTORY KEY FOB

Your iDatastart system may enable remote engine start by performing one of the following button sequences on your factory key fob:

BUTTON FUNCTION

Press on Stop engine

OR

BUTTON FUNCTION
Press on Start engine
Press on Stop engine

NOTE: This feature may not be supported on some vehicles. If supported, the chosen button sequence will be communicated to you by your iDatastart Authorized Dealer at the time of installation. The remote start range will be equal to your factory key fob’s door lock range.

ADJUSTING ENGINE RUNTIME SETTINGS

Once remote started from your factory key fob or long-range remote, your vehicle will run for the programmed ‘runtime’ setting. The default runtime is 15 minutes but it can also be programmed for 3, 5, 10, 25, 30 or 35 minutes. If you wish to change your remote start runtime setting, contact your iDatastart Authorized Dealer.

KEY TAKEOVER FOLLOWING REMOTE START

The ‘key takeover’ procedure ensures that your engine does not shut down upon entering the vehicle, during the programmed remote start runtime. To prevent your vehicle from shutting down, complete the steps below within the programmed delay time (45 seconds, 90 seconds, 3 minutes or 4 minutes):

For Standard Key Vehicles
1. Unlock and enter vehicle
2. Close doors
3. Insert key into ignition and turn ignition to ON position
4. Press foot brake

For Push-To-Start Vehicles
1. Unlock and enter vehicle with valid smartkey

NOTE: This feature may not be supported on some vehicles. If available, the programmed ‘key takeover’ delay time will be communicated to you by your iDatastart Authorized Dealer at the time of installation.
