My remote does not work. What do I do? A: You must go through a troubleshooting process: Does your vehicle respond to your remote at all? If yes, does it lock and unlock the doors? If yes then your system is in valet mode. Either tap buttons I and III or Lock and Trunk simultaneously on your remote. If no, have you tried reprogramming your remote outlined in the user's manual? For Titan remote starters turn key to on position and press the button on the antenna located behind you mirror for 5 seconds.
My vehicle does not remote start. What do I do? A: Does your vehicle respond to your remote? If yes, what commands does it respond to? If no, does reprogramming your remote work? If your remote responds to your system and does not remote start it may be possible your bypass module or installation please call Teknique Auto Innovations and talk to a technician.
How do I reprogram my CompuStar remote to my vehicle? A: This process is outlined in the user's manual for the remote. You must cycle the vehicle's ignition between the on and acc/off position 5 times within 7 seconds or less and then tap the lock button, button I, or put the battery in the remote (2WSSR / P2WSSR). The process depends on which remote(s) you have. All your remotes must be reprogrammed at the same time.
How many remotes can I program to my CompuStar system? A: You can program up to 3 remotes with any Alarm, Alarm/Starter, and Starter system with the exception of the 2WSSR. The 2WSSR will only work with another remote (1WSSR) with the Alarm/Starter Combo system. All current systems will take up to 3 remotes.
Is the CompuStar remote compatible with an existing alarm or remote start system? A: The CompuStar transmitters are not compatible with other systems due to our unique frequency modulations. These transmitting patterns are proprietary to CompuStar.
My 2-Way remote flashes "Hold" on the LCD when I press any button. What causes that? A: Your remote has a button lock feature. If you hold button 4 down for 2.5 seconds that will engage or disengage that feature.How do I adjust my CompuShock shock sensor? A: This sensor is a small, black egg shaped piece usually installed under the dash. There is a small dial on the end that ranges from "Off" to 10, 10 being the most sensitive. Compustar recommends a setting between 3 and 4. Anything higher than that will cause false alarm triggers. The CompuShock can be mounted anywhere so please check with your installer for details. Also when checking with your installer make sure adjusting your sensor will not void their installation warranty. Note you can turn your shock sensor on and off from any of your remote(s). I have a manual transmission. How do I set my vehicle up to remote start? A: You have to set manual transmission reservation mode. Reservation mode involves leaving your gear in neutral. You must set your e-brake and a few seconds later remove the vehicle's key from the ignition. Your vehicle will remain running until you exit your vehicle and close all doors. The motor will shut down and your remote will receive a page back (2-Way remote) and lock and arm the system. Does my vehicle need a bypass module? A: Not every vehicle needs a bypass module. Your vehicle may need a module or two depending on the year make and model.
