Car starter Prestige 6900 Install Information

I have a 4 cyl 2002 Grand AM and I am down to needing a Tach signal for the starter to work. I am looking for someone who has success doing this or the FULL module programming manual to see if I can turn this requirement off somehow. And no, It is not the Purple and White wire, that would be on a 6 cyl.

Remote start python 533 attempts to start the car, shuts off, then on a again, does it 3 times, then stops


There are three possibilities for the situation you are describing especially if the vehicle has been cold for a while. The first possible cause occurs when the smart tach feature is used. In this case, the 533 is not receiving the proper signal from the vehicle that shows the engine is running. The remedy for this problem is to connect the tach wire from the 533 a proper tach source. The other two causes occur when the smart tach feature is not used and the tach wire is connected. If the tach wire is not connected to a good source for the tach signal in which case the wiring will need to be corrected. Otherwise, the tach signal will need to be relearned.

The seven flashes of the parking lights when you attempt to remote start is the tach signal not being programmed. If you hooked up the tach wire already, turn the ignition on, press and release the programming switch three times. Turn the key off, press and hold the programming switch and start the car. Continue to hold the programming switch while the vehicle runs. The parking lights will be flashing while the tach is being programming. Hold for at least 15 seconds for a good signal. This allows the engine to "smooth out" into a normal idle rpm.
If the parking lights are not flashing, the tach is not being programmed. You may have skipped a step during the set up for the programming or, you have the wrong tach wire. If you went to a injector or coil wire, it is the uncommon wire. This means that there exists two or three wires at the injectors/coil packs. One or two of the wires are the same color at all of the injectors/coil packs and one wire is a different color at each injector/coil pack.

You did not mention the year/make/model of your vehicle but, the issue appears to be the factory alarm. The installer failed to make the connection. If you intend to make the connection yourself I would need information pertaining to the vehicle. The (-) pulse before start wire for Prestige remote starters is black with a blue stripe. It is in a 4 pin connector at the module. This wire can be used to disarm the factory alarm before the remote start sequence.

the problem sounds like it is how the starter works. It starts and afte a few seconds it does a system check to see if the car started and if works right it will continue to leave the car on and if not it trys 2 more times to start and stay on. Most techs use voltage sense or a virtual tach signal to do the system check. I have found that the best way to have the starter work and stay on is by hooking up the tach signal and making sure the options are set for system check ON and Tach signal check on.

Pres remote starter Model APS-901, the remote will start the vehicle but then it immediately shuts off


PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE POST BEFORE BEGINNING

There are several reasons that could cause the remote starter to shutdown immediately after it starts:

1. It may be the lack of a tachometer signal. Did you hook up the green/orange wire to a uncommon wire at a coil or fuel injector? If not, did you program the remote starter for tachless? If you didn't hook up the tach wire, no problem; let's program the remote starter for tachless:
Turn ignition on, press and release programming switch three times. The parking lights will flash one time. Turn key off, then on, then off, then on. You are now in bank three (remote starter programming). Press and release the programming button five times. The parking lights will flash the number of the times for the setting for this feature. If you have not attempted to progarm the unit, it will flash two times (default setting is for TACH). Press and release the start button on the remote once, it will flash three times; press and release the start button again, it will flash once. The unit is now programmed for voltage. Turn the key off. If you have not attempted to do any programming on the unit, the default setting for crank averaging is AVERAGING. This means that you will have to start the vehicle at least four times with the key to be effective. Test the system.

If the problem still exists, let's try this:
2. If you did not hook up the tach wire and you already had the unit programmed for voltage and, the remote starter shuts down (probably when the parking lights come on); the 901 is seeing a drop in voltage and you need to hook up the tach wire. Connect the green/orange wire to an uncommon wire at a fuel injector or coil. An uncommon wire is one that is a different color, at the same pin location, on each coil or injector. For example; compare two fuel injectors: if they are two pin connectors you may see an orange and a pink. At the next injector you may see an orange and a blue. The orange is the common wire and the pink and the blue are uncommon wires. You may connect the green/orange to either one of the uncommon wires. After the wire is connected, turn the ignition on, press and release the programming button three times. The parking kights flash once. Turn the key off. Press and HOLD the programming button, start the vehicle. The parking lights will begin to flash, continue to hold programming button for approximately 15 second. Release the programming button, the parking lights will come on then, go off. The tach is now programmed. Turn vehicle off. Refer to the above section for remote starter programming features in bank three. Test system.
Remember: If you did hook up the tach wire there is no need to program the 901 for tach. Tach is the default setting.

3. If the remote starter still continues to shut down, the problem may be with your need for an immobilizer bypass. You failed to mention the year/make/model of the vehicle so, try inserting the key into the ignition then, remote start the vehicle. If the vehicle starts and runs, you will need to bypass the "chip" in the key for the remote starter to function as desired.

Installed the prestige remote start(aps687n) on my 95 jeep grand cherokee but when i try to remote start my parking lights just flash 7 times and nothing happens. Any ideas???


Yes, the seven flashes mean that the tachometer setting has not been programmed. If you hooked up a tach wire (green with orange stripe) to an uncommon coil or injector wire, then you have to program tach: turn ignition on, press and release programming switch three (3) times. The parking lights will flash once to confirm. Turn ignition off. Press and hold programming switch. While holding the programming switch, start the vehicle. The parking lights will flash to confirm that the remote starter is getting a tach signal from the vehicle. Continue to hold the switch for approximately 15 seconds.The parking lights will continue to flash while holding the switch. Release the programming switch. The parking lights will come on solid for one second, then go off. The tach is not programmed. Turn ignition off. Test system.

How i can progam the tach


You don't have to program the tach brother.. just hook the wire they tell you to use to the Negitive coil wire or to the tach its self. the Alarm is self learning. when it see's a signial it will determine if its a 6, 8 or 4 cyl and what the RPM's are and thats it man bob;s ur uncle..! Even if you don't have a tach the - coil wire has the signial everytime the coil fires thats what your seeing on the tach the coil fireing ccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc00cc
