What is 2nd Car mode?

2nd Car mode is a feature that is available in some ArticStart systems. This mode allows you to communicate with two different vehicles while using the same remote. In order for 2nd Car mode to work fully you will need:

  • A 2-way remote or a 1WG3R-SH (this is the only 1 way remote that will work)
  • A ArticStart system with same frequency antennas on both vehicles. (antennas, remote, and the control module all must be compatible)
  • Program the remote to both vehicles.

 

Note: Please see an authorized dealer or original installer for assistance setting up necessary equipment for 2nd Car mode.

How to set 2nd Car mode (this process could vary depending on remote):

LED Remotes:

  1. While in normal usage the remote should be paired up and functioning with one of the vehicles.
  2. Have both vehicles turned off and the doors closed.
  3. Press and hold the unlock and the trunk buttons (II & III) at the same time. (press and hold for 2.5 seconds) 
  4. If you have an LCD remote it should now show a '2nd' on the screen. If you have an LED remote the LED should begin to flash a different color to show you are in 2nd Car mode.

How to deactivate the 2nd Car mode:

LED Remotes:

  1. Have both vehicles turned off and the doors closed.
  2. Press and hold the unlock and the trunk buttons (II & III) at the same time. (press and hold for 2.5 seconds) 
  3. If you have an LCD remote it should no longer show a '2nd' on the screen. If you have an LED remote the LED should begin to flash the normal color to show you are in 2nd Car mode.

Thank you.
