Overview: The Code-Alarm CA1153 Vehicle Security and Keyless
Entry System, a part of the Professional Series line, will protect your vehicle
and its contents, and can remotely lock or unlock your doors. It comes with two
Remotes: The CA1153 comes with two 1-way, 4-button remote
transmitters (CATX-MT). The remotes operate at 433 MHz with additional SAW filtering
to give you excellent range with less RF interference. The remotes have four buttons
for lock, unlock, vehicle locator/panic mode, and trunk release. Each requires one
CR2016 battery (installed). Additional remotes (up to a total of 4) can be programmed
to operate the alarm.
Data Bus Interface (DBI) Port: The alarm's control module has
a 4-pin Data Bus Interface (DBI) port, which allows you to plug in an optional
FlashLogic Transponder/Door Lock/Remote Start Interface (220FLCAN) directly
into the system. These modules, compatible with many late model vehicles, can save
considerable installation time by eliminating the need to find and splice various
wires within the vehicle. Typical connections that are made with the interfaces
include tachometer, brake, door locks, and ignition/starter.
Note: Even with the interface, there
will be some required splicing into your vehicle's factory
125dB Siren: The CA1153 includes a siren which emits a single
tone pattern at 125dB, which is equal to the threshold of pain in humans. Its compact
size (2-3/4" footprint diameter, 3-3/8" horn diameter) gives you additional
mounting flexibility. The weatherproof design keeps the siren operating flawlessly
in the harsh, under hood environment.
Silent Choice: The Silent Choice feature allows you to
control the arm/disarm chirps from the remote control. When Silent Choice is
activated, a second press of the "lock" button is required to
activate an audible arming response from the vehicle. The system default is
Silent Choice disabled, which means the alarm will chirp for arm and disarm on
the first button press.
Active/Passive Operation: The system can be programmed for
passive or active arming and door locking. Active arming/locking requires the use
of the remote to arm the system or to lock the doors. When programmed for passive
operation, the doors lock and the system is armed automatically 1 minute after
the last door is closed.
Delayed Arming: For vehicles with a delayed dome light, the
system can be programmed to delay arming up to 60 seconds after the lock button
is pressed. Once programmed, the system will learn the timing of the dome light
delay and add 2 seconds before arming.
Door Locks/Trunk Release: The alarm can lock and unlock the
vehicle's doors using the remotes. The alarm can be wired to work with positive or
negative switching locks, reverse polarity, and positive or negative multiplexed
door locks. Two door lock relays are built into the system. In addition to unlocking
and locking the doors, the system can also open the vehicle's trunk or hatch.
Two-stage Door Unlock: The alarm's door lock function can be
set to operate in two stages. The driver's door only is unlocked with one press
of the unlock button. A second press of the button within 3 seconds will unlock
the remaining doors.
Shock Sensor: The included dual-stage magnetic shock sensor
will respond with a warning chirp when there is a light impact to the vehicle.
Harder impacts will fully trigger the alarm. You can bypass the shock sensor for
one arm cycle, and will default back to normal operation the next time the system
is armed. The shock sensor's sensitivity can be adjusted if needed.
Starter Interrupt Output: When the alarm is triggered, the
system will disable the vehicle by interrupting the circuit to the starter via
a relay. As long as the system is in alarm mode, the vehicle's engine cannot be
started, preventing a possible theft. The relay needed to install this feature
is included with the alarm.
Personal Protection Alarm Mode: The alarm's Personal Protection
or Panic Mode will activate an alert when you press and hold the panic button
continually for three seconds. The transmitter's normal functions are suspended
during panic mode, except to allow you to lock or unlock the doors. You can
manually shut off the alarm with the transmitter, or the system will automatically
stop after 30 seconds.
Real Panic Sound (RPS): During panic and alarm trigger modes,
the horn and/or siren will sound in a randomized pattern. This draws more attention
to the vehicle that alarms without this feature.
Progressive Car Find: To assist you in locating your vehicle
in a crowded parking lot, the Progressive Car Find feature will sound the alarm
and/or honk the horn five times at low volume. If you have not located the vehicle,
the system will repeat the action at increasingly higher volumes (low, medium,
high) with each press of the button.
Carjack Mode: The CA1153 features a Carjack mode, which must be
turned on in system programming. The Carjack mode provides a delayed and progressive
alarm response, starting with siren chirping, to full alarm with flashing parking
lights, to starter kill activation, rendering the vehicle disabled.
Auxiliary Output: The alarm features an auxiliary output to
operate optional accessories such as power windows or sunroof, or a powered sliding
door. This 500mA output is capable of driving relays, and can be programmed to
operate in various timing configurations (i.e. push and hold, latched, latched
until ignition on, etc.).
FlashLogic Interface Module: The optional FlashLogic Databus
Interface Module (220FLCAN) communicates with your vehicle's Databus to provide
plug-in capability for various functions of the Code-Alarm security system. Typical
functions include tach input, door trigger, dome light supervision, factory alarm
arm/disarm, trunk/hatch open, diesel glow plug input, remote start, and factory
keyless entry controls. Compatibility and available functions vary depending upon
year, make, and model of vehicle.
Note: Before installing, the FlashLogic
module will need to be configured for your specific vehicle
via web-update. Some splicing into factory wiring will be
Universal Transponder Interface (UTI): The optional Universal
Transponder Interface (UTI) works with vehicles that use an "immobilizer"
key system, allowing you to operate the alarm system without interfering with the
vehicle's anti-theft features. The UTI works with vehicles that have a transponder
or RF-based immobilizer, including the GM Passkey systems.
Digital Tilt Sensor: The optional Code-Alarm
DUB1 digital tilt
sensor can detect when the angle of your vehicle changes and trigger the
alarm to protect you from tow trucks and tire or wheel thieves. After you have
parked your vehicle, the DUB1 has a digital self-leveling feature to determine
the angle of your parked vehicle. If that angle changes due to the vehicle being
jacked up or towed, it will trigger a full alarm in the security system.
Door Lock Actuators: Power door locks can be added to a vehicle
with manual door locks with a Door Lock Actuator, enabling you to lock/unlock your
doors with the CA1153's keyless entry feature. A Standard 2-wire Door Lock Actuator
(220DA1) is available for normal manual door locks. For cable-driven door
locking systems, a Motor Clutch-type Door Lock Actuator (220DA2) and a Cable
Kit (220CLBK) will be needed. You will need an actuator for each door you
want to control.
1-way Remote Transmitter: Up to 4 remote transmitters can be
used with the CA1153 security system. Additional
CATX-MT 1-way 4-button remotes can be purchased and programmed to operate your system.
