Innovative
Car Alarm
Thatcham M.I.R.R.C. Evaluation No:

TC2-1238/1101

COBRA 7518

High Security Dynamic Radio Key Alarm and Immobiliser system with back-up battery and self-adjusting
ultrasonic movement detectors and central door lock switching facility.
Suitable for 12v DC negative earth power supply.

IMPORTANT
1. The Cobra 7518 alarm system MUST be fitted with a previously installed Category 2 M.I.R.R.C. listed
immobiliser to obtain Category 1 status for the vehicle's security systems. If there is no Category 2
Thatcham listed immobiliser fitted along with associated V.S.I.B. installation certificate, Category 1
status cannot be claimed on fitment of the alarm.
2. The Cobra 7518 is a stand-alone alarm system and MUST NOT be connected in any way to an existing
immobiliser.
3. The Cobra 7518 MUST NOT take its power supply from the same circuit as the existing immobiliser and
not interfere in any way with the immobiliser cut circuitry.
4. Where the existing immobiliser is connected to visual indicators the Cobra 7518 MUST NOT be
connected to visible indicators at all. Therefore the two yellow wires are not used and must be insulated.

INSTALLATION NOTES
Alarm Unit:
l Mount the alarm unit with the screws provided
(5mm hole) in a suitable position in the engine
compartment. Ensure that it is not exposed to
water or mounted too close to heat generated by
the exhaust and cooling systems.

l Immediately the alarm is triggered the electronic


siren will pulsate @ 118 dB (@1m) and all direction
indicators will flash for thirty seconds and reset,
ready in case of another theft attempt.
l Switching for electric central door locking
systems.

CENTRAL DOOR LOCKING COMMANDS


Confirm the type of door locking system the vehicle
has and connect using the appropriate application.
1. Single Point Locking System
For vehicles fitted with a single point locking
system (central door locking system can only be
operated from the drivers door). Fit the door motor
and connect as shown in diagram 4. Connect the
Violet/Orange to a positive supply via a fuse holder
and 7.5 Amp fuse. The alarm is preset for a 1
second output on the Violet & Orange wire (Lock/
Unlock).

2. Negative Command Door Locking System


For vehicles fitted with a negative command central
door locking system connect as shown in diagram
5. The alarm is preset for a 1 second output on the
Violet & Orange wires (Lock/Unlock).
3. Positive Command Door Locking System
For vehicles fitted with a positive command central
door locking system connect as shown in diagram
7. Connect the Violet/Orange to a positive supply
via a fuse holder and 7.5 Amp fuse. The alarm is
preset for a 1 second output on the Violet & Orange
wires (Lock/Unlock).

4. Direct Motor Control


For vehicles which require the alarm to directly
power the existing door motor wire to operate the
central door locking system, connect as shown in
diagram 6. For this to operate correctly the door
motor wires must be negative while the motor is in
the rest position.

INSTALLATION NOTES

Note 2: If additional cable is required, use only cable of


the same or greater current handling capacity.
Note 3: Ensure that all connections are electrically
sound and made through a suitable connector and
protected from water ingress. Poor connections may
cause erratic operation of the alarm system.
Note 4: Take care to route cables away from the exhaust,
cooling systems and any moving parts. Secure the
alarm's harness to original vehicle's harness or to a
good fixing point of the vehicle.
Note 5: All alarm wiring should be lapped using tape of
similar appearance to the original vehicle. Extra tape
may be added to the vehicle's original harness to give
similar appearance.
Note 6: The alarm circuit board includes special circuit
breakers which protect the main circuit board and the
indicators from attack by shorting. The 15 Amp fuse
in the alarm harness's power supply (Red wire) is to
protect the harness from shorting due to poor
installation. It is recommended that the fuse holder
and fuse is installed.
Note 7: Cable tie the ultrasonic and glass break cables to
the main alarm harness siren each side of the 2-way
connectors to ensure they cannot be accidentally
disconnected.

STATUS HISTORY - DIAGNOSTIC READ OUT


If the alarm has triggered in your absence you will be
notified by the indicators flashing 4 times when the
alarm is disarmed. The status history will then be
displayed by a sequence of flashes from the alarm's LED.
This will indicate the following:
1 Flash
Door, boot or bonnet opened
2 Flashes
Optional sensor trigger
3 Flashes
Ultrasonic sensor trigger or glass
break trigger
4 Flashes
Ignition sense - Ignition turned on
while alarm armed
5 Flashes
Voltage drop sensor triggered
6 Flashes
Tamper mode
7 Flashes
Serial line data link
8 Flashes
Serial line data link
MULTIPLE TRIGGERS
The alarm will also display multiple triggers, therefore if
the door is opened and the ultrasonic then detects
movement inside the vehicle the LED will display 2
flashes followed by 3 flashes.

Note 1: Be sure to secure the black plastic harness

REMOTE KEY AND TOUCH KEY


PROGRAMMING PROCEDURE

Programming Remote Key/Touch Keys:


Remote Keys:

Note:
i All Remote keys required to operate the alarm
system must be programmed at the same time. This
includes all existing Remote/Touch keys as well as
new keys. Any Remote/Touch keys not
reprogrammed at this point will not operate the
alarm system.
ii

B1 Press buttons 1+4 on the remote control. The LED


on the vehicle will flash to indicate that the alarm
system has registered the code number.
B2 Repeat procedure B1 for All the Remote keys.
(This also includes all existing Remote keys).

You will require the unique Pin code number from


the customer for this procedure. If the number has
been misplaced it can be obtained by faxing the
Alarm Technical Help line quoting the model number
of the alarm and the alarms serial number which can
be found on a white label under the alarm harness
cover on back of the alarm.

Exit Programming Remote Key:


C1 Turn the ignition off. (This will exit programming
mode).
C2 Test all Remote keys.

iii A maximum of four Remote keys can be


programmed into the alarm system.

ALARM FUNCTION PROGRAMMING

Procedure for Programming/Re-Programming:

Select the appropriate line from the Program


Selection Table on page 6:

A Entering the Pin number.

Enter Pin Code: (See Section A1-4).

B Programming the Remote keys.


Initialising Programming:

C Exit programming and test.

l With the Ignition still in the ON position, press the


send button on the Remote key for approximately
6 seconds.

Entering Pin Number:


Each alarm system has a unique Pin Code number
which can be found on the card in the alarm box. This
Card must be given to the customer on delivery of the
vehicle.

(The vehicles LED will flash with a long single pulse


signifying that you have initialised the Program
Selection Table).

A1 Turn the Ignition ON and OFF 3 times within 7 seconds.


The LED will Illuminate for approx. 3 seconds.

Programming:

A2 Immediately the LED extinguishes, switch the


Ignition ON.

l After the long single flash the LED will display a


short single pulse identifying that you are at Mode A
of Program Selection Table 1.

A3 Count the number of flashes until this is equal to


the 1st number of your Pin code (i.e. 2 flashes =
No. 2, 4 flashes = No.4) then turn the Ignition OFF
and back ON.

l Push button 1 on the Remote key to change the


selection (pushing the button 4 times will take you
to Mode E (5 Flashes) of Program Section Table
1). The LED will confirm this by flashing 5 short
pulses.

A4 Repeat procedure B3 for the following 3 digits of


your Pin Code remembering to turn the Ignition
OFF and back ON after each Code number.

l If you are happy with this selection press button 4


on the Remote key, this will input your selection.
The LED will confirm this by flashing your selection
in long pulses.

If Pin Number is correct the LED will illuminate.
