PBS Workflow
Step #1 Step #2 Step #3 Step #4 Step #5 Step #6 Step #7 Step #8 Step #9 Step #10 Step #11

Step #1

Make sure fobs are in manual mode.

Please see the manual for an explanation of switching modes and what each does.

Make sure PBS Module is off

Make sure the system was not left in an IGN on or ACC on mode, If the button LED is staying on for longer than 30 seconds you either have a fob in automatic mode or you have the system on, walk it through a cycle to shut it off. Press the start button two more times will cycle it off if it is in ACC on mode or one press should cycle it off if it was in IGN on Mode. If you attempted to start the vehicle prior to this testing it may be stuck in ON MODE, if this is the case press the brake and hold the start button for about 2 seconds and it will shut off.

Step #2

Make sure system is still authorized

When in Manual Mode the system will stay active (disarmed) for 30 seconds or until the lock button is pressed.

Check Brown ACC wire

Check to make sure you hooked something up to this wire. ***This wire is not needed for basic system functionality***If you are trying to run Accessories independently from the ignition circuit you will want to hook them up to the BROWN ACC wire, this wire goes hot when the start button is pressed once, this wire also drops out during cranking.

Check wiring

If you hooked up our Brown ACC wire and you are still not getting accessories to turn on, take a multi-meter and check our Brown ACC wire for 12V, as long as our wire is putting out 12V you will need to investigate further down line to see where the problem is. The most common problems are bad /missing fuses or relays.

Make sure module is plugged in

Our fobs use a CR2032 Battery, this is a deep cell battery and must read 3.0V or higher if it is reads at 2.99 Volts it is no longer a good battery and should be replaced. We recommend replacing your battery once a year.

Make sure start button is plugged in

Make sure the button is firmly plugged into the module.

Step #3

Make sure system is still authorized

When in Manual Mode the system will stay active (disarmed) for 30 seconds or until the lock button is pressed.

Check Brown ACC wire

Check to make sure you hooked something up to this wire. ***This wire is not needed for basic system functionality***If you are trying to run Accessories independently from the ignition circuit you will want to hook them up to the BROWN ACC wire, this wire goes hot when the start button is pressed once, this wire also drops out during cranking.

Step #4

Check Wiring

If you hooked up our Brown ACC wire and you are still not getting accessories to turn on, take a multi-meter and check our Brown ACC wire for 12V, as long as our wire is putting out 12V you will need to investigate further down line to see where the problem is. The most common problems are bad /missing fuses or relays.

Check Pink wire with Black stripe

Take a multi-meter and check our Pink with Black Stripe ACC wire for 12V, as long as our wire is putting out 12V you will need to investigate further down line to see where the problem is. The most common problems are bad /missing fuses or relays.

Step #5

Check start button wires

Check to make sure the start button wiring Harnesses has not been damaged.

Step #6

Make sure system is still authorized

When in Manual Mode the system will stay active (disarmed) for 30 seconds or until the lock button is pressed.

Check Brown Brake wire

This wire must receive 12V whenever the brake is depressed. Make sure to test this wire at our module.

Step #7

Make sure system is still authorized

When in Manual Mode the system will stay active (disarmed) for 30 seconds or until the lock button is pressed.

Check Purple wire output

Take a multi-meter and check our heavy gauge Purple starter wire for 12V, *** This wire will only put out 12V while you are holding the start button down for a maximum of 6 seconds*** as long as our wire is putting out 12V you will need to investigate further down line to see where the problem is. The most common problems are bad /missing fuses or relays.

Check starter relay

Check your vehicles starter relay.

Check battery voltage

Make sure your vehicles battery is at 12V or higher, also test this while vehicle is cranking.

**** IMPORTANT INFO****

Whenever our system is walked through a start sequence (start button flashing and you press the button) the module then believes the engines running, even if the motor is not running, in order to shut our module down you must put your foot back on the brake, then press and hold the start button for roughly 2 seconds until everything shuts off.

Step #8

Make sure button was held down long enough

The starter will crank for as long as the start button is held down (6 second MAX) make sure you held the start button long enough for the motor to catch.

Check Brown ACC wire

Our Brown ACC wire drops out during cranking, check to make sure you have nothing crucial to the engine running hooked up to this wire such as a fuel pump.

**** IMPORTANT INFO****

Whenever our system is walked through a start sequence (start button flashing and you press the button) the module then believes the engines running, even if the motor is not running, in order to shut our module down you must put your foot back on the brake, then press and hold the start button for roughly 2 seconds until everything shuts off.

Step #9

Check brown brake wire

This wire must receive 12V whenever the brake is depressed. Make sure to test this wire at our module.

Check start button wires

Check to make sure the start button wiring Harnesses has not been damaged.

Step #10

Make sure you are in range of the system

Typical Range is roughly 100FT, however this can be effected by battery voltage in the fobs as well as Antenna Position and environmental effects.

Make sure vehicle is not still in an on position

Make sure the system was not left in an IGN on or ACC on mode, If the button LED is staying on for longer than 30 seconds you either have a fob in automatic mode or you have the system on, walk it through a cycle to shut it off. Press the start button two more times will cycle it off if it is in ACC on mode or one press should cycle it off if it was in IGN on Mode. If you attempted to start the vehicle prior to this testing it may be stuck in ON MODE, if this is the case press the brake and hold the start button for about 2 seconds and it will shut off.

Make sure you are not in Automatic Mode

Please see the manual for an explanation of switching modes and what each does.

Check door lock wiring

There are many different ways to wire in power door locks, please check your schematics if your door locks are not working. You can also test our small gauge Green and small gauge Blue wire to ensure output.

Step #11

Check to make sure fobs are in Auto Mode

Please see the manual for an explanation of switching modes and what each does.

Check the batteries in the fobs

Our fobs use a CR2032 Battery, this is a deep cell battery and must read 3.0V or higher if it is reads at 2.99 Volts it is no longer a good battery and should be replaced. We recommend replacing your battery once a year.

Check the PBS Antenna wire

The small gauge black wire coming out of the back of the PBS Module is the antenna, make sure this is not touching metal or wrapped around other wires.
