The Push-Button LED switch located in the receiver allows you to temporarily disable the remote starting function of the system.

To Exit R/S Override Mode again:

1) With the system disarmed, press and hold the push-button, found on the windshield receiver, in.

2) Turn the ignition switch on, off, on, off, on, off.

3) The LED turns off indicating that the R/S unit is fully functional once again.

If it isn't working then the remote starter system has a fault.

It has worked fine for years.

Over time, then internal electronic components will degrade and will eventually fail.

This is common in all electronic equipment.
