Owner's Manual

Downloaded from www.Manualslib.com manuals search engine


Standard Features
✔ Lifetime Warranty — For as long as you own the vehicle, Clifford
Electronics will repair or replace the control unit free of charge.

✔ A Pair of VirtualKeys™ — These ingenious proximity keys that are


attached to your car keys communicate through the airwaves with the
engine immobilization system even before you insert your car key into
the ignition switch. These keys are truly virtual since they are completely
“user-transparent.” There is nothing you need to do in order to either arm
or disarm your VirtualKey AutoImmobilizer.
n 280,000,000,000,000 Digital Codes — Each VirtualKey utilizes a truly
unique digital code selected from a code universe of more than
280,000,000,000,000 digital codes. No two VirtualKeys will ever have
the same code. Even if a thief had the ability to rapidly create codes, it
would still take millions of years of constant work!
n User-Transparent Arming and Disarming — There are no remote
controls, no personal codes to remember, no receptors to touch, no
trouble whatsoever. The driver of the vehicle does absolutely nothing
in order to arm or disarm the VirtualKey AutoImmobilizer. It’s all
automatic and user-transparent.
n Incredibly Rugged — These little keyfobs have no battery to run down
nor mechanical parts to wear out. VirtualKeys are weather-proof,
water-proof and virtually indestructible.
✔ MultiPoint™ Immobilization with On-Board Relays — Three on-board
circuits electronically interrupt the ignition system, starter motor and the
electric fuel pump or other device to make it virtually impossible for a
thief to start your vehicle.

✔ Attempted Theft Alert — For maximum theft alert, the system will sound
an alarm by triggering the car horn or optional siren if the door is opened
and the ignition key that has the VirtualKey attached has not been inserted
into the ignition switch. The horn/siren will sound for up to five siren
duration cycles of 30 seconds each.

Standard Features (cont.)
✔ MultiKey™ Recognition — The VirtualKey AutoImmobilizer accepts up to
30 different VirtualKeys.

✔ MultiCar Protection — If you have more than one car, you can use any of
the VirtualKeys to control any or all of your other vehicles, even if each
vehicle has an entirely different ignition key.

✔ AutoArming™— The system arms itself automatically (passively) sixty


seconds after you remove your key from the ignition switch. There is
nothing that you need to do or remember to make sure your valuable
vehicle is protected. This may qualify you for an insurance discount that
can pay for the system.

✔ Instant Code Learning — You can easily add new VirtualKeys in seconds,
yet it’s totally secure.

✔ Instant Code Deletion — If one of the VirtualKeys is ever lost or stolen, a


simple procedure will clear all the VirtualKey codes from the system’s
non-volatile memory so that the remaining VirtualKeys may be
reprogrammed into the system.

✔ Dual Grounds — To thwart tampering and assure unfailing operation.

✔ Non-Volatile Memory — The VirtualKey AutoImmobilizer remembers all


the VirtualKey codes associated with your system even if the power is
disconnected.

✔ Fault-Proof Driving Safety— Clifford’s unique electronic circuitry assures


that the VirtualKey AutoImmobilizer cannot inadvertently shut down the
car’s engine while the owner is driving.

✔ Sabotage-Proof Electronics — Since no thief can outsmart the VirtualKey


AutoImmobilizer, what about brute force? That won’t do it either. Even if
the thief found the system control unit and ripped it out of the car, the
engine still won’t start!

✔ High-Luminescence LED Status Indicator — Indicates system status and


provides visual deterrence.

Operation of your VirtualKey AutoImmobilizer

Proper Attachment of the VirtualKey to the Ignition Key


The VirtualKey MUST BE ATTACHED DIRECTLY to the vehicle’s
ignition key and NOT to a keychain. The reason is that the VirtualKey code
must be electronically read through the airwaves by the AutoImmobilizer’s
antenna, which is located near your vehicle’s ignition switch. Since the
range is, by design, only a few inches, the closer the VirtualKey is to the
antenna, the better is the likelihood of trouble-free operation.

To drive your vehicle


When the system is active, the dashboard or console-mounted LED will be
flashing. When you open your car door, you must immediately insert your
car key into the ignition switch (otherwise the horn or optional siren will
sound).
When you insert your car key, the Virtual Key comes into close proximity
to the VirtualKey detector mounted near the ignition switch. The system
instantly reads and verifies the secret code of the VirtualKey and, if it
matches, releases its electronic immobilization of your vehicle’s starter
motor, ignition system and electronic fuel pump. The LED turns off to
confirm this.

AutoArming
There’s nothing you need to do to set the VirtualKey AutoImmobilizer.
Sixty seconds after you remove your key from the ignition switch, the
system automatically engages its electronic immobilization of your
vehicle’s starter motor, ignition system and electronic fuel pump. When it
does so, the LED status indicator will flash repeatedly.
Even if a thief has an exact duplicate of your car key, he still won’t be able
to start the engine. In fact, if he tries to start it without your VirtualKey in
place, the system will sound the horn or optional siren and continue its triple
lockout of the starter, ignition and fuel pump.

Adding New VirtualKeys
Your VirtualKey AutoImmobilizer will accept as many as 30 different
VirtualKeys. To add additional VirtualKeys to your system, do the following:
1. Remove the VirtualKey from your ignition key.
2. Open a door and leave it open.
3. Turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position.
4. Immediately bring the VirtualKey you removed within an inch of the
ignition switch. The LED will turn off (system is disarmed). As soon as
the LED turns off, move the VirtualKey away. Repeat this for a total of 5
times. When you bring the VirtualKey into range the 5th time, the LED
will light and remain lit to indicate the system is in program mode.
5. Within 60 seconds, bring each new VirtualKey to within an inch of the
ignition switch. When you do so, you will note that the LED will blink off
once to indicate that that VirtualKey has been registered and the system will
now accept it. Repeat this step for any other VirtualKeys you wish to add.
6. Turn the ignition off to end program mode.

How to Delete the Code(s) of Lost or Stolen VirtualKeys(s)


You can erase the codes of lost or stolen VirtualKeys so that they can never
be used disarm your VirtualKey AutoImmobilizer. When you have
completed steps 1-5 of this section, you MUST follow the procedure above
to add all remaining VirtualKeys to the system, otherwise the system will
respond to ANY unprogrammed VirtualKey.
1. Remove the VirtualKey from your ignition key.
2. Open a door and leave it open.
3. Turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position.
4. Immediately bring the VirtualKey you removed within an inch of the ignition
switch to disarm (LED will turn off), then move it away. Repeat this for a
total of 5 times, then, on the 5th time hold it within an inch of the ignition
switch for 30 seconds. When you do so, the LED will light and stay lit to
indicate program mode. After 30 seconds of holding it in place, the LED
will turn off to indicate all codes have been erased from memory.
5. Turn the ignition off to end programming mode.
6. IMPORTANT: At this stage, your system will disarm when ANY
VirtualKey is used, so immediately use the “Adding New VirtualKeys”
procedure above to add all your remaining VirtualKeys.
