This is great if u know how to install it as it has no tach input. So I loved everything but i
can not use it
till the following problems is fixed. I need to find one wire in the car which becomes +12V once the car is started to use in the switch 7B of this PD-175 starter.so it doesnt keep on attempting to start it after 10 seconds...continuously. now my technician did or could not find it if someone knows email me. (firstname.lastname@example.org). The solution recomended by the PD-175 manual is vague and is mentioned below.

i just bought this item and next week i'll install it with the help of my technician. What is the problem of this Alarm and what must i tell my technician to do ?? Is it a problem of the engine remote start ?
i've had this alarm for about a month now and i don't know if its malfunctioning or if they installed it wrong, because my car would start sometimes and won't others. i took it to the car dealer cuz i thought it was a car problem but they said the alarm is interfearing with my fuel distribution any one have similar problems.
Did anyone find a number where I can find Phoenix Digital. I want to find an authorized dealer and have someone else install it.
Omar....i had a similar problem but my car starts when the alarm is set and it does not when the alarm is deactivated. I do have a problem with my my alarm though. My car doors are not locking when i set the alarm but they do unlock when i deactivate the alarm. Any suggestions or anyone have a similar problem?

The alarm is working but cant get remote start to work .when you start the truck with remote it only would star about 1 in 6 trys properly. once it would start then about 4-5 sec. later it would try to start agin causing the starter to grind. anyone have any HELP or contact info on this system? If anyone can help contact firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks
I also have the PD-175 alarm. I bought mine from a web site. My problem is this: everytime I disarm my alarm, it waits 40 seconds or so and re-arms itself and locks the doors. Is there anyways to disable this feature? I had my alarm installed by some shop in town. The tech guy said that there should be some way to program the alarm. Any help ?? ~Rex
Here is a Tech. support # I found (323)588-8162 ask for Victor. Maybe this can help someone out my installer spoke to him today and I have a appointment this sat. to try and work the bugs out let you know how it works out!

ok I bought a pd-175 and happened to loose the book in the process. I am trying to install it in a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan. can anybody give any info as to how to do this. Not worried about the auto start, just want the door locks and starter kill. Any help appreciated.
hey, i got PD-175 a couple of days ago, and im trying to install myself. i got wiring schematics for my truck, but the installation book for the alarm sux @$$, does anybody got any ideas where to get better installation directions? any help is appreciated email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, thanks
man i jus had bought this alarm and from yall post man i think i made a mistake this sucks so yall say the remote start still starts after 10 sec. tell me if i mad a mistake..
I just installed this alarm.. It's very similar to other alarm's I've installed..
The wire that needs 12V+ when the car is running can be connected to a wire that comes from the alternator. (in most cases there's 3 wires. 1st large red (to battery), 2nd smaller red some times connected to larger red, and 3rd white/yellow/other has 12V+ output when the engine is runing..) That worked greas (as before).. My problem is that I want to install a microwave/radar proxmiety sensor and I need to feed the seneors (negative when active) output to the shock sensors output.. The problem is that the shock sensor is in the "command unit thing" that also has the status LED's, pager button and antenna.. That harness has 7 wires and I need to find out which one is for the "warn away/aralm wire from the shock sensor.. I can't hook the radar sensor to the door inputs because that sends an open door signal when the car starts (shakes car to start) and that starts the siren and kills the engine.. If anyone knows which wire I need to splice into, it would be of great help to me and some others.
Hmmm I just brought one of these alarms aswell, think you guys have put me off even before I recieve it..... That will teach me for buying an alarm based on it's remote. Ahwell will see what happens *8^)
does anyone have a connection diagram for the pd-175 if so can u send me a copy. plese
i just had a customer with one of these systems, & i can't find any info on it either. i've been seeing lots of these cheap novelty alarm system/auto start systems... You guys need to buy some decent stuff!!! just about every new vehicle requires a few adapters/modules to make these systems work, like the factory anti-theft bypass (chip inside the key) or it will not keep the vehicle running after a few seconds, there are door lock/unlock modules, factory alarm disable modules, & tach sensing modules. some of these new vehicles have systems that work with the computer & use less than 12volts for some of the interfacing.. do yourself a favor & get a brand that has been around, & is going to be around & works well, & something that has more than one tech support guy (speaking good English is important), & a brand that offers these additional adapters. stick with a brand like Crimestopper, Omega, or a DEI brand (like Viper or Hornet to name two). any experienced installer that takes pride in his work is not going to want to install one of these novelty systems. if an auto-start system isn't installed right it could easily cause damage to the vehicle (commonly a starter or flywheel). using the 'tach sense' is almost a must. a tach sense is also what makes the vehicle start consistantly in weather or engine changes. when these cheap flashy remotes break- are you going to be able to replace them- after the company disappears?
i am in the southern NJ area, if anyone needs installation work. i can also supply these systems & mail them. the better companies will have installation people to refer you to just about anywhere in the USA/Canada.

Hello everyone who is having trouble with your remote starters. I am an experienced remote starter installer and I have one piece of advice for you. Do not buy these cheap knock offs. there are only a few companies even worth looking at and they are:
Viper DEI Crimestopper Ultra Start
My personal favorite for features, ease of use and workmanship are the Ultra Starts. They have been specifically designed by peoploe like myself, the install pros. I have installed nearly 1000 of the Ultra Starts from the basic models to the Remote/ Alarm FM models and they are the easiest and most reliable starters I have ever seen.
Check in your area for a dealer. They are also some of the most reasonably priced systems out there.
i have installed quite a few of the Omega brand alarms, and have to say they are honestly not bad. they are no different then any other alarm to install, and they are pretty basic as far as features go. i got one for my brother one (the Omega K9-Mundial2) as a cheap christmas gift ($39) almost 2 years ago and he's had no problems. so i would recommend them, and have, to friends and family.
i picked up the pd-175 offline not too long ago. I had a tech install it, and after checking it all, i know it is installed right, only one problem: whenever i alarm it, it waits like 10 - 30 seconds then sets itself off, the remote shows that my door is open and it unlocks the doors. I would normally think the door sensor is hooked up wrong, but the alarm does stay armed when i turn the remote starter on. Has anyone encountered this? any ideas? any help would be greatly appreciated. thx
sounds like you need to chalk this up to "experience" and get a new alarm. everything i've read on here or heard from people is this is a bad alarm. nothing but problems. although if i do hear or read somewhere anything remotely usefull about these alarms, i will post it here for all to rejoice about.
Hi, I'd kinda like to try one of these, but with so many problems, don't really want to pay retail for one...is anybody here interested in selling there's (with manuals)? If so, please contact me at email@example.com
MY PD-175 workes good I have no porblems with it, But with one remote. I know some about alarms and I know alot of wiring for diffent cars so if you need help I can try to help you. firstname.lastname@example.org
My remote shows that my door is open and it unlocks the doors. Any ideas how to reset the main unit? Thanks.
Andrew, You have a simple relay problem, your unlock relay was installed improperly or a wire has come loose from the relay harness. Your installer should fix this as it is definitely their fault. If an amateur installed your alarm email me at email@example.com and I will tell you how to fix it.
the Phoenix Digital starters are made by ultra start and are probably just like the ultrastart-CRAP, the one-way models work great, but the two way are garbage, i have a shop and went through the trouble of the ultrastart line, the range blows, the transmit/recieve delays are long and the unit is easily confused with multiple button presses. ultrastart will (if you buy enough units) print custom labels on the remotes and packaging for any joe-schmo that wants to "have his own line of starters" I might get some and call them El'bunkos. do you think that will sell? if they are cheap enough you bet your bung they will. You get what you pay for- spend a little more and get a brand name like astro-start, DEI, Crimestopper, or Autostart.
