As a standard, two RC-11 remote
controls are supplied in the CA-320
package. Any of the RC-40, RC-42 or
RC-44 provide an equivalent
substitution. The RC-44 four-button
controller allows you to use the second
pair of its buttons for remote operation of
additional devices (e.g. another car
alarm, control panel, garage door, lights, etc.)
After switching off the ignition, removing your key and exiting the
vehicle, close all the doors (closing of all windows is also
recommended). Arm the car alarm by pressing the button on the
If you press button
the car alarm will be armed completely with
ultrasonic, vibration and current consumption detectors.
The „Accent“ can also be armed without the mentioned detectors by
(when you leave a dog in the car for example).
One flash from the turn lights and one siren chirp* confirms arming
(the sounds for button
and are different), and the LED starts to
flash. At the same time the immobilizer is blocked and the doors should
automatically lock (if equipped with central-door locks). If a powered
window control system is also connected to the „lock“ signal, all the
windows will be closed automatically* when button
is used for
arming does not have any influence on the
The current consumption detector will be active 10 minutes after
arming. All the other sensors will come on line after seven seconds.
If you hear four fast siren chirps when arming, it indicates that an
input is activated (for example a door is not closed properly). This input
will be disabled automatically. The LED will indicate this fact after
disarming in the same manner as alarm memory.
will block the car automatically if ignition key is turned off for more than
5 minutes. This immobilization (car alarm stays disarmed) is indicated
by intermittent LED light. The immobilization can be switched off by a
remote control button (
or ). It will also switch off if you switch on
the ignition key and press the VALET button *.
Automatic immobilization can also be temporarily disabled if you
switch off the ignition key while the VALET button is pressed. The
AUTOIMMO function will be disabled until the remote control is
activated again. This can be used, for example, when you leave your
car in a car shop for maintenance without the remote control.
To disarm the car alarm press a button (either or ) on the remote
The turn lights should flash twice and the siren should chirp twice *. At
the same time the doors should unlock (if equipped with central-door
locks) and the LED should turn off. When you open a door the dome light
will come on for 60 seconds or until you switch on ignition key.
Rearm* - if you do not enter the car within one minute after disarming,
the car alarm will rearm and lock the doors automatically again.
If the lights flash three times, the siren chirps three times and the
LED continues to flash, it indicates Alarm Memory (the alarm was
triggered since it was turned on). The LED alarm memory indication is
switched off after switching on the ignition key. You can learn what was
the last alarm reason, anytime when you press
button on the
remote control while the ignition key is on (or the second from last
alarm reason with
button). You can see which input triggered the
alarm from the LED blinking (see the following table).

In alarm mode the siren sounds for 30 sec., the turn lights flash for
60 sec. and the pager transmits (if installed). The car doors are
automatically re-locked in the beginning and in the end of each alarm
period to insure that the car will remain locked after an event which
triggers the alarm.
The remote control may be used to stop triggered alarm by pressing
a button (either
or ). If you stop the alarm with the remote
control, the car alarm will remain armed. To disarm it, press a button
once more. Three flashes and chirp sounds will confirm the alarm has
been disarmed after alarm.
Can be triggered any time if & buttons are pressed
simultaneously for more than 0.5 second. The siren sounds and the
turn lights flash for 30 seconds. The Panic Alarm can be stopped by
pressing a remote control button (
Note: Panic Alarm is not stored into the alarm memory.
If you lost your remote control, perform following: Open the car door
(this triggers the alarm), switch on the ignition key and press the hidden
Note: If emergency disarming was disabled in setting mode, there is no
way to disarm the car alarm (call service).
No reaction of Car alarm to remote control
If there was any attempt to scan the remote control code (or while rare,
as may happen after the remote control battery has been replaced)
then the car alarm will not respond to the signal from the remote
control. In this case the alarm asks you for a confirmation of control
To provide, make Emergency Disarming (if armed), switch on the
ignition key and press the button of the remote control (
After that the remote control should work as usual (if not, go to
Note: this way your system performs more complicated analyses of
coding system. It insures your alarm is secure from outside
interference and the remote control is indeed yours.
There is no special maintenance required. If the distance from your car
at which the alarm system can be operated continuously decreases,
then replace the remote control battery (after releasing of a screw on
the rear side of remote control housing; mind the battery polarity).
A suitable replacement battery is L1016 (6VDC). Usual good battery
life time is one year.
We recommend a yearly professional inspection of the car alarm.
Periodic inspections should be made to the door, hood and trunk
We recommend installer to give a detail explanation of
„Accent“ functions to the customer after installation, to avoid problems
and misunderstandings in future.

Hereby, Jablotron Ltd., declares that this CA-320 is in compliance with the
essential requirements and other relevant provisions of Directive
1999/5/EC. Original of the conformity assessment can be found at the web
page www.jablotron.cz, section Technical support.
Note: Although this product does not contain any harmful
materials we suggest you to return the product to the
dealer or directly to the producer after usage.
The „Accent“ brand name system is suitable for all cars equipped
with 12V voltage and a negative ground. This car alarm is remotely
controlled. RF communication is protected by a FLOATING digital code
and by an ANTI-SCAN feature. The CA-321 model is a simplified
version without built-in ultrasonic and vibration detectors. All other
features are identical.
Arming and disarming of the system is confirmed by the turn indicators
blinking and by a siren chirp (selectable). While the ignition key is on, the
system can not be armed. This protects the car from having the alarm
accidentally activated while driving. A visual warning of the presence of
the alarm is provided by an LED indicator, which also provides an "Alarm
memory" function, indicating which input was triggered.
Door lock outputs allow the central locking system to be controlled by
the remote control (programmable output pulse duration). A signal to
close electrically powered windows is also available.
A built-in current sensor will trigger the alarm if any electrical
equipment is switched ON while the „Accent“ is armed. The current
sensor activates 10 minutes after arming. This prevents the cooling fan
from triggering the alarm. Arming of the current sensor is optionally
selected when arming the car alarm, and can also be disabled
completely in the setting mode.
A built-in ultrasonic detector (CA-320 only) protects the passenger
compartment. It detects any movement in the protected airspace.
When the „Accent“ is not armed, the ultrasonic generator is turned off.
This protects the passengers from unnecessary ultrasonic
bombardment. Arming of the ultrasonic sensor is optionally selected
when arming the car alarm.
A built-in vibration detector (CA-320 only) has a digital filter which
provides immunity to false alarms. This detector has selectable
functions for warning or alarm triggers. Arming of the vibration detector
is optionally selected when arming the car alarm, and can also be
disabled completely in the setting mode.
The „Accent“ can be armed without the ultrasonic, vibration and
current detectors by pushing button
on the remote control.
An automatic Dome light control is provided by an extra door switch
input/output (negative trigger). It turns ON the dome light after
disarming and the opening of any door. The light will remain ON until
you switch ON the ignition (max. 60 sec.).
The car alarm contains two independent trigger inputs (AL1 and
AL2). The AL1 is a negative alarm trigger, and the AL2 provides
selectable polarity and reaction (alarm or warning).
When the armed system is triggered, there can be two different
reactions. Warning - a short siren and blinkers signal (0.5 sec.) or
ALARM - siren sounds for up to 30 seconds and the turning indicators
flash for 60 seconds. Panic alarm can also be triggered by remote
A built in powerful immobilizer (3 relay contacts) can disable
important systems (starter, ignition, electrical fuel pump etc.).
The „Accent“ provides optional REARM and AUTOIMMO functions.
REARM checks if the car has been entered within one minute of
disarming. If not, the alarm is automatically rearmed and the doors are
locked again. AUTOIMMO function will block the car automatically if
ignition key is turned off for more than 5 minutes. Optional functions can
be modified in setting mode by a professional mechanic after installation.

The car alarm will work only if properly installed. Improper installation
of the car alarm can result in poor and or dangerous car performance.
We recommend having the alarm professionally installed.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Disconnect the battery before
starting installation. Keep in mind that if your car has some memory
functions, these may be erased if you disconnect the battery. Nobody
should be inside the car equipped with airbags when connecting or
disconnecting the battery. Refer to the car owners' manual before
disconnecting the battery.
Install the control unit in the passenger compartment. The
recommended location is under the dash board. The wire coming
directly from the control unit is the remote control antenna. The location
of this wire will effect the remote control working distance. Ideally, the
wire should be near a window. If you drill a hole in the car, be sure to
check the area before drilling to prevent damage to the car.
Ultrasonic detector - (CA-320 only) install the ultrasonic sensors in
the passenger compartment so that the sensors have an unobstructed
“view” of the compartment. Suitable locations for the sensors are on
the top of the front window pillars. Install one sensor near the upper left
corner of the front window, the second one near the upper right corner
of the window. The front of the sensors (covered with a metal grid)
should be oriented towards the center of the rear window.
Route the sensor cables to the processing unit and connect the
corresponding color connectors. The „Accent“ automatically calibrates
itself according to the size of the vehicle. If you install sensors into an
extremely small passenger compartment (driver compartment of a van
for example), we recommend that the jumper located between the
ultrasonic sensors’ connectors on the car alarm unit be disconnected.
When this jumper is disconnected, the initial level of the sensitivity is
lower. No other adjustment of the ultrasonic detector is required.
Vibration detector - (CA-320 only) is built into the main unit. Its
sensitivity is factory adjusted. If the detector is used as alarm trigger (see
setting mode), it will trigger the alarm only if multiple vibrations is
detected (built-in digital filter). If the detector is set as a warning trigger,
each vibration will cause a siren chirp and a blinker flash (when armed).
Arming of the vibration detector is optionally selected when arming the
car alarm, and can also be disabled completely in the setting mode.
Current detector - will trigger ALARM if an electrical device of the
car is switched ON while the „Accent“ is armed. Sensitivity of this
detector depends on the car battery conditions. The current sensor
activates 10 minutes after arming (to prevent the cooling system fan
from triggering the alarm). Arming of the current detector is optionally
selected when arming the car alarm, and can be also be disabled
completely in the setting mode.
Note: all the above built-in detectors are active only if the system is
armed by the
button on the remote control.
LED indicator is on a separate cable. Once you have determined the
position on the dashboard where you want the LED light, drill a 6.5mm
(4/16") diameter hole in the dashboard and install the LED. Be sure to
check for other cables before you drill the hole. Connect the LED cable
into any of the three pin connectors on the main unit.
VALET Switch - has a separate cable. This push button switch can be
used as an executive override if the remote control is lost. However, if the
VALET switch was optionally disabled in setting mode, it will not be able
to override. Find a hidden place in the car and install the switch. Connect
the cable to any of the three pin connectors on the main unit.
WIRING - route wires for the car alarm with the electrical harness of
the car. Check each connection made to ensure that it is solid and
properly insulated. Use only a real crimping tool to make connections.
Complete and check all wiring before switching on the power.
RED = Positive Supply - connect this red wire to a direct line from
the positive terminal of the battery. This wire is split in the car alarm
wire harness. The loop with the fuse (10Amp), is a separate power
supply for turn lights. The fuse protects against a short connection of
the turn indicator bulb. Use only a 10A fuse in this harness!
BLACK = Grounding - connect this wire to the original GND
point in the car.
BLUE/WHITE = ARM signal (power for external detectors) provides
voltage +12V while the alarm is ARMED (by button
). The maximum
load of this output is 25mA.
