The vehicle’s Tachometer signal tells the iKey RS system how fast your engine is running. The iKey RS uses this information to determine how long to crank the vehicles Starter as well as to determine if the vehicle is running or not. For this process to work correctly the iKey RS needs to have its (Yellow) Engine Tach wire (from the Accessory harness of the PBS module) connected to a good Tach source from the vehicle and to “Learn” the Tachometer signal, so it can remote start the vehicle and monitor the engine RPM's.

A tachometer source can be found in many places in a vehicle.

The recommended location for a finding a good tachometer source is:

  • The Negative side of the Ignition coil
  • A Fuel Injector control wire
    • On injectors there are typically two wires. One will be a common color at each injector and the other will be a different color or have a different colored stripe at each injector. The non-common color wire is the correct wire to use.
  • Other possible tach sources:
    • The Crankshaft position sensor (Use for Diesel)
    • The Engine control module (ECM)
  • Non-Recommended tach sources:
    • A Data Module Output
    • Behind the dash at the Tach gauge

Always route the tachometer wire away from any ignition and/or spark plug wires. A common problem is tachometer wire routing. If a tachometer wire is not routed correctly it can cause a “Dirty Tach Signal. If a tachometer wire is routed under the hood to a coil or injector wire and the wire is routed adjacent to or wire tied to a spark plug wire or ignition harness it can radiate interference that makes the tach signal hard to read. It can also cause a rough idle or miss fire condition.

If your first attempt at Tach learning is unsuccessful there could be one or more different causes. All cars are different and some are easier to learn the Tach signal on then others, it’s not uncommon to repeat the Tach learning process a few times to get everything working smoothly. If you are confident you have securely connected the iKey’s Yellow Tach wire to a recommended source and route it properly. Simply repeat the learning process one or two more times to see if this solves your issue You may also want to try improving the signal strength by revving the motor up a few hundred RPM’s and then pressing & releasing the Brake pedal.

A dirty signal means that there is too much “noise” (interference) mixed with the Tach signal on the line making the actual Tach signal hard to lock on to. This is a condition often seen in high-performance engines that have some type of spark “boost” device like a MSD Ignition or other similar system installed. A dirty Tach signal can also be caused by poor routing of the Yellow tach wire.

To properly test a tachometer wire in a vehicle will require a Digital Multi Meter capable of measuring AC voltage. Note that a typical tachometer signal is not true AC voltage but pulsed, DC voltage. A Digital Multi Meter is not fast enough to read the pulsed DC voltage and this is why you need to use the AC voltage setting.

Set the meter to AC voltage. Connect the negative Meter lead to a good chassis ground in the vehicle and the positive lead to the suspected tachometer wire. Start the vehicle and wait for it to idle down to normal idle speed. At this point the meter should be displaying a fairly constant AC voltage. If this is the case, rev the motor up and down and observe the reading on the meter. The AC voltage should rise when the engine RPM's rise and fall when the engine RPM's fall. Locate a tach source that has at least 3V AC at or slightly about idle speed.

NOTE: DO NOT USE any other method to test a tachometer wire such as a test light, this can cases damage the vehicle!

A Bypass Module makes it possible to connect after-market electronics into a modern networked vehicle ignition system. A car with “Chip in the Key” an Immobilizer Interface has a coded ignition cylinder, meaning without the proper chip key, the vehicle will not start. When you push the start button of your system the Bypass Module will allow the vehicle to "see" the correct key, and start just like the key was in the car. Most all Remote Start installations of any brand product require either a Bypass (or Data) module. There are several brands of these products, all good in quality and they are available for a nominal cost from any alarm installation shop.

Much like a Bypass Module, a Data Integration Module preforms the same immobilizer bypass functions but additionally interfaces with other vehicle systems such as door locks, Ignition circuits etc. Many modern vehicles use integrated electrical systems that network many electrical components in your vehicle. A Data Integration Module speaks to the factory computer in its native language. As with Bypass modules, there are several brands of these products, all good in quality and they are available from any alarm installation shop.

If you attempt to Remote Start the vehicle and the starter cranks the engine but does not start. You may have either an issue with the vehicles immobilizer not receiving valid bypass signal or a poor tach signal. If the vehicle does starts and runs for at least 5 seconds it is likely not an immobilizer issue. Make sure you have a valid tach signal and that the system learned the Tach Signal. In some cases learning the Tach Signal at a higher RPM will resolve this issue. If you suspect you might have a poor tach signal; Find a new source for the tach signal.

This is almost always an engine monitoring issue. If you are using a "tach" wire from a Data module or other computer wire try using an injector wire or coil wire instead and re-learn the signal.

Verify antenna position: Antenna may be on or close to metallic material, change position or orientation to increase range sensitivity. Check antenna wiring, do not pull on the antenna wires, make sure connectors are firmly seated.

See user manual for more information on LED status detail.

See user Manual for more information on disabling alarm functions.

  1. Before Start, Make sure the buttons Blue outer ring is flashing when the brake is applied.
  2. Make sure the shifter is in the Park or Neutral position.
  3. If this is a manual transmission vehicle, the clutch will need to be depressed
  4. Check voltage and for open fuses on the main 8 pin harness Battery 12V+ inputs
  5. Check Connections. Make sure that all harnesses connectors are fully plugged into the module with no back out pins and it is making solid connections to the vehicle wiring.
  1. Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? The vehicle’s immobilizer can cut the fuel and/or spark during an unauthorized start and it needs to be bypassed with a bypass or data module
  2. Is the system programmed for Tach Ignition? If so, reprogram the Tach Signal it may be too low. See Tach Reprogramming

Is the system programmed for Tach Ignition? If so, Follow “Reprogram Tach Ignition” steps as shown. Check the connection to the vehicle’s tach wire and make sure the wire is not broken or shorted to ground leading to the system. Try moving the Tach wire to another source, I.E. Negative Coil or Injector.

As a safety feature to prevent power sag/flash or sudden loss of power while the system is running (Run Mode), it will default back to RUN Mode when power is resumed. To exit RUN Mode, apply the brake and press and hold the button for 2+ secs to switch back to READY or OFF Mode.

Check the battery voltage. There may not be enough power to crank the engine and keep the system running at the same time. The system requires a minimum 10V to operate and if the voltage drops below 10V while the starter is engaged it will effectively turn OFF the system. This will cause the Ignition/Start to drop out simultaneously. Be sure 12V+ supply wires are connected directly to the battery or main power supply at a fuse block. Also make sure system is grounded to a battery or a chassis ground terminal,( DO NOT ground with a tap screw).

Some vehicles do not supply power to the brake switch when the vehicle is in the OFF state. The Brake input becomes active only when the vehicle is in ACC or Ignition (ON) state. If so, look for an alternative brake output signal from the vehicle or install a separate 12V brake supply wire to the brake switch. Connect to the brake switch supply side and diode isolate the existing brake supply wire (Diode band towards the switch side of the existing wire).

  1. Test within 30’ from the vehicle, with all doors closed and the system armed. Be sure to hold down the button(s) on the transmitter for 3 seconds. Look to see that the LED on the remote is working, Look to see if the vehicles parking lights light up when you press the remote start buttons, This confirms the system is receiving the remote start signal. If so;
  2. Check to see that the neutral safety switch input is receiving a proper ground
  3. Check connections. Make sure that the harnesses are fully plugged into the module and making good connections to vehicle wiring.
  4. Check voltage and for open fuses on the main 8 pin harness battery 12V+ inputs

See “Remote Start Ignition Takeover” section under the REMOTE START FUNCTION on page 9.

Yes, Our system provides a ground signal so that you can control a relay that will power your parking lights.

We recommend changing your batteries once a year, depending on use you can expect to get 1-3 years out of your key fob batteries.

There are many different ways of wiring up door locks due to there being different types of actuators and different options customers want. You can take a look at the diagrams page to see one way of wiring in door locks.

  • Simple Answer: The unit is stuck in “Run” mode, walk it through a shutdown sequence to reset the unit, to fix it press and hold the brake, press and hold the start button for about 1.5-2 seconds and everything will shut down.
  • Long Answer: The system is very sequence oriented since we do not monitor a Tach signal. The system was at some point walked through a start sequence, so the module believes the engine is running, to fix it press and hold the brake, press and hold the start button for about 1.5-2 seconds and everything will shut down.

Button selection really comes down to what you like aesthetically. A list of all of our buttons can be found on this page.

In this case you would hook up our wait to start wire to your wait to start light, this would ensure your glow plugs have time to warm up before cranking the engine.

-When we measure our T-1 style start buttons we measure the barrel size of the button (the size of the hole you will need to drill). The face of the button will be roughly 3mm Larger than the barrel. Please see our Buttons selection page for specs on all buttons.

Whenever you purchase batteries for your fobs we always recommend to take a multi-meter and test the batteries to ensure they are 3.0Volts. The CR2032 is a popular battery however it is not as popular as say a AA battery, this means they tend to sit on the store shelf/stock room/ware house etc for longer periods of time.

Yes, the ikey system can learn 1 set of coding, you can order additional codes set to your code whenever you would like. Be sure to make note when you order the system of your key fob code, this will be printed on the bags the key fobs are in as well as on the bottom of the PKE module, the code will look similar to “ABC123A”.

Yes, your key fobs can be programmed to as many push button start systems as you want, giving you the ability to only carry 1 key fob with you and hop into which ever vehicle you feel like driving that day.

We recommend changing your batteries once a year, the batteries must have a voltage of no less than 3.0Volts. If the batteries are at 2.99Volts they are no longer a good battery, you will experience a decrease in range.

If the ikey system does not detect use in 5 days it will reduce its range to preserve battery life, every 5 days the system will reduce its range to preserve the life of your battery.

The LED on the key fob requires very little power to light up, The best way to check to see if your battery is still good or needs to be replaced is to unscrew the screws on the back of the fob, pop the battery out and use a Multi-Meter to test the battery, it should be at 3.0-3.3Volts, if it is any lower it needs to be replaced.

  • This is the system telling you that your vehicles battery is low, the ikey system requires your vehicles battery to be at 10Volts in order to operate correctly, if your battery is below 10Volts the system will restart itself.
  • The ikey LED will blink Red-Blue-Red-Blue even while you are inside the vehicle.

Yes, you will need to have our wire control a relay if you are utilizing the horn output.

This is due to the door trigger wire, ensure that you have this hooked up to the proper wire, as well as ensure the you set the jumper on the PKE module to the proper polarity.

  • Make sure the antennas are plugged in correctly and that you did not accidently plug in the bypass antenna into the main antenna harness, Ensure that the antennas are not touching metal.
  • The antennas are a sensitive component, make sure you do not tear the jacket protecting the wires, if the wire is broken and a strand is touching metal the antenna will need to be replaced.
  • Do NOT wrap the antenna wires around a bunch of other wires, this will cause a reduction in range from interference.

Make sure to check the authorization wires (small gauge purple wires), they should be connected to each other, this is how the PKE module tells the PBS module it is authorized to enable push button start.

This is due to the “ikey not found reminder”, this function can be turned off by looking in your owners-manual, page 4 item 5. When your door is opened and closed such as letting a passenger out of the vehicle and then the system sees an input on the brake wire the system will search for a key fob, if one is not detected it will beep twice. The key fob may be inside the vehicle but out of range of the antennas.

The standard range is 100ft.

Yes, the short antenna coming out of the PKE Module roughly a 6 inch small black wire) add additional wire of the same gauge and run the wire up you’re A-pillar to increase remote start range.

Yes, when remote start your vehicle, our unit will allow it to run for 15 minutes, before automatically turning the vehicle off.

The bypass antenna is typically installed very low on the driver side windshield typically near the VIN #.

If you have 3 or more fobs in range of the unit, you may notice a decrease in range.

Yes, simply press the remote start button again to shut the vehicle off.

Yes, as long as your enter the vehicle with an authorized fob it will not matter which one started the vehicle.

If you leave range of the vehicle with the fob while the vehicle Is still running, the vehicle will beep at you letting you know that you have left the vehicle running.

The system has a feature designed to prevent someone driving off with the vehicle without the Key Fob once the vehicle has been started.

Example: If driver “A” were using the vehicle, then returned home, never turns off the vehicle, then driver “B” gets in the vehicle and leaves without getting the Key Fob from driver “A”. Driver “B” is now driving without the Key Fob. In this instance the system will “Chirp” while driving indicating that the vehicle is driving but no Key Fob is detected. This sequence is triggered by the system seeing the vehicle Stop, A vehicle door open and close, then when the Brake pedal is pressed the system will “Look” to confirm a valid Key Fob is in the vehicle. If it doesn’t see a valid key Fob in the vehicle it will “chirp”. It is also important to note that there are typically areas with the vehicle cab that may be “Dead Zones” (areas where the Key Fob is not able to be read) This “Chirp” scenario can also occur if the Key Fob is in a location where the system cannot read it.

For the vehicle to Remote Start All Vehicle Doors and the Trunk MUST be closed, and the door trigger wire must be reading that status.

- The RED “Accessory ON Detect” wire of the PKE must be connected to the Yellow Accessory wire from the PBS module.

** If you have confirm the above items and the vehicle still does not Remote start.

Confirm that the vehicle parking lights flash when attempting to remote start the vehicle. If they do not you have a communication issue: Check key fob for good batteries. If vehicles parking lights flash, then begin by resetting the PKE module, this is done by unplugging the main power from the module for 15 seconds and then plugging it back in. Re-test.

One additional issue could be caused by the Data module: use the factory transmitters to “Unlock” the vehicle doors then try Remote Starting it again. If this solves the problem it is because the Data module is not disarming the vehicles factory intrusion monitoring (security) system.


LED Brake lights are known to retain voltage on the cold side of the Brake switch even when the vehicle is turned Off and the Brake is not being depressed.

This becomes a problem in that the iKEY system interprets voltage on the cold Brake line to mean the Brake pedal is being pressed. In this case it is necessary to add an additional switch to the Brake pedal arm.
