I just installed a compustar 2wss-as. I have everything hooked up except the clutch bypass. I figured I would test out the basic features and see what happens. This is my first compustar alarm so I am kinda in the blue here. I got the remote to communicate with the brain but it seems that its not working correctly.

1) I started my car to to the tach sensing. it was idling at 1500rpms. i rev'd it a little and now its at 900rpms. I havent started the car in a week but it usually idles around 700. I pushed the tach button and it beeped once. The manual says this is correct. Is the high idle just because it hasnt been started or maybe the wiring?

2) I cant figure out how to arm it. When I push button 1 its supposed to arm/disarm the alarm. When I push this. The display shows the lights flashing and like an arrow pointing up in the window and it does not arm. Do I have the lock wires backwards or something?


UPDATE: If I change it to passive mode, it will lock and unlock the doors. So, for some reason it wont arm.

check the connections of your reciever wire, not familiar with this alarm actually, but the brain might not be recieving the remotes signal

I disconnected the sensor wire connector and ran a single wire from the connector to the pin on the brain 1 by 1 till i found the faulty sensor. Turned out to be the factory hood pin sensor; bypassed and now works great.
