ENTERING THE EMERGENCY OVERIDE NUMBER
Refer to the 5 digit number on the key tag. Each digit is entered individually using the ignition
switch. As a comprehensive guide of how to enter the number, the following example shows how
the override code number ‘45032’ would be used. Note that a ‘0’ is represented by 10 flashes).
1. While the light is flashing (because the immobiliser is armed) turn the ignition ON. The
light will turn steady ON.
2. Turn the ignition OFF, and the light will start flashing. Count the number of flashes.
After the 4th flash, turn the ignition on. The light will be steady on again (This is the first
digit entered).
3. Turn the ignition OFF, and count the flashes. After the 6th flash, turn the ignition ON.
The light will be steady on again. (This is the second digit entered).
4. Turn the ignition OFF, and count the flashes. After the 10th flash, turn the ignition ON.
The light will be steady on again (This is the third digit entered).
5. Turn the ignition OFF and count the flashes. After the 3rd flash, turn the ignition ON. The
light will be steady on again (This is the fourth digit entered).
6. Turn the ignition OFF, and count the flashes. After the 2nd flash, turn the ignition ON.
The light will flash rapidly to indicate that you have successfully entered the code and the
immobiliser will disarm allowing you to start the vehicle.
To Code New Transponder tag
When the LED light is flashing, turn ignition key on and the LED light will be constant. Turn key
off and count the flashes of your first number of your over ride pin code, turn key on then off and
count second number and repeat procedure for the rest of your numbers. If you have a 0 number
then this counts for ten flashes. When you have reached the last number of your 5 pin code the
LED light will rapidly flash, turn key off and count one flash, turn key on then off and count
another one flash. Turn key on and introduce the transponder tag and then repeat again after two seconds.
The LED light will rapidly flash for acceptance. Your transponder tag is then coded.

Mastergard M6000 Immobilizer – Programming a New Black User Transponder Tag

Mar 1, 2012   //   by admin   //   Tech Tips  //  Comments Off on Mastergard M6000 Immobilizer – Programming a New Black User Transponder Tag

Each system can hold up to 4 Black User Transponder Tags in addition to the Red Master Transponder Tag.  When programming new Black user Transponder Tags to the system, all previous Black User Transponder Tags will need to be reprogrammed at the same time for them to continue to operate the M6000 immobilizer.  Each time a new tag is programmed the M6000 immobilizer will drop all previous codes allowing for additional security when a Black User Transponder Tag has been lost or stolen.

 

It is possible to program two or more vehicle equipped with a M6000 Immobilizer to the same Black User Transponder Tag.  Should you wish to do the second vehicle and program it to that M6000 and so on.  This method stops any conflicts with the use of multiple transponder tages.

To enter Programming Mode:

  • Open the vehicles driver’s door and leave open or switch the ignition on/off using your ignition key (make sure that no transponder tags are in the vicinity of the vehicle ignition switch or designated antenna area).
  • Within 60 seconds introduce the Red Master Tag to the vehicle ignition switch until the M6000 LED goes out.
  • Remove the Red Master Transponder Tag from the vicinity of the ignition switch.
  • Within 5 seconds (before the LED begins to flash) switch the vehicle ignition on and off 5 times.  (on/off – on/off – on/off – on/off – on/off)
  • The M6000 LED will illuminate in a non-flashing state, if done correctly.
  • With 10 seconds introduce the Red Transponder Tag to the vehicles ignition switch then remove from the vicinity.
  • The M6000 LED will go out confirming the M6000 has deleted all previously valid Black Transponder Tags and is now ready to learn up to 4 new Black User Transponder Tags.
  • Within 10 seconds introduce the first Black User Transponder Tag to the vehicle ignition switch.
  • The M6000 LED will flash once, pause and flash again.
  • Within 10 seconds introduce the second Black User Tag to the ignition switch (If applicable).
  • The M6000 LED will flash twice.
  • Continue with the third and fourth Black User Transponder Tag (If applicable)
  • The M6000 LED will flash 3 or 4 time respectively.
  • Waiting Longer the 10 seconds at ant time during the Black User Transponder Tag programming will tell the system to leave programming mode and remember all the Black User Transponder Tags you have just taught it.

Should you experience any problems with programming your Black User Transponder Tag, please drop by N3 Sales and we will be happy to assist you.

If you lose your RED MASTER Transponder Tag you will need to bring the vehicle to us so we can program in a new Red Transponder Tag.

How to Program a new remote into your AstroStart

Feb 23, 2012   //   by admin   //   Tech Tips  //  Comments Off on How to Program a new remote into your AstroStart

– You must program all your remotes at once. If you don’t have one for programming it will get bumped out and not work until reprogrammed.
– You must have a hood switch installed. If there is no hood switch you will likely need to take your car to an AstroStart dealer for programming.
– If your hood switch is rusty you will need to replace it. You can jump the black/red wire going to the hood switch to ground as a temporary solution.

1. Open you hood. If needed, jump the red/black wire to a good ground.

2. Turn the key on, press and release the brakes.

3. Turn key from on to off 3 times. (OFF – ON – OFF -ON – OFF) The Park lights will blink 4 times. If they are not hooked up you will hear 4 clicks.

4. Push any button the first remote to be programmed. Repeat for all remotes. You should hear a click and see the park lights flash after each button press.

5. Turn key on and press brakes once.

That’s all there is to it. Try each remote and make sure they work.
