Description

This is step by step installation of a Compustar CM7000 Remote Start and Security installation. Surprisingly, I couldn’t find information online for a Nissan NV200, so I thought I’d post this and it might help someone out. As far as I can tell, this wiring should work for 2013 to 2017 NV200.

July/2019– Getting Started: Firstly the ignition plug.
1. Remove covers as shown in pictures.
2. Remove 6 pin connector and measure voltages:

Many online wiring diagrams had incorrect and conflicting wire colors for the ignition switch so here are the actual wire colors as tested on my 2013 Nv200.

Ignition Switch
1. Blue–constant +12 battery
2. White–starter
3. Red–ignition
4. Yellow–accessory
5. Brown–2nd accessory

Aug/2019–Next step is remove drivers kick panel and find lock/unlock wires. Then find brake wire sense above brake switch…Correction, as I understand it, you don’t need a brake wire connection if you have the Blade Immobilizer as the information is sent over the OBD2 data lines.

Aug 15/2019– Run 2 wires from the OBD2 plug to the Compustar Alarm. (Pink and Blue wires.) I suggest to run extra wires as they always seem to be needed down the road.

I removed this CM7000 Remote/Start unit from my older car – a 2005 Pontiac Vibe that died, which did not need the Blade Bypass module. I bought just the Blade unit from a local shop for about 130.00 and had them code it for my NV200. It is shown in the picture below.

Wiring is quite straight forward, the tricky part, for me anyway, was cutting the “immobilizer data wire” … I recommend anyone to read schematic carefully and don’t mix up the 2 cut ends. I used an old extension cord for the immobilizer wires …3 wires…and twisted together the 2 wires that were cut on the other end. This keeps the connection closed, until they are hooked up to the CM7000 brain. The CM7000 brain, probably has a relay contact keeping the wires connected as I measured the resistance across the 2 terminals and it was basically a physical short…zero ohms.

Next, hook up all the wires as indicated on the attached sheets. I didn’t know which Accessory wire to use so first I hooked up the 2nd Accessory (brown) in the Nv200 to the Accessory wire in the CM7000 but the fan motor did not come on when the vehicle was started by remote so I swapped it out for the Accessory (yellow) wire and then it worked good. Strange thing now, when it starts by remote start, the radio does not come on, so I guess it also needs the 2nd Accessory for that. I’m tempted to just tie the 2 wires together but am reluctant to try that so I’ll just leave it for now until I ask someone if that is ok. Just as well perhaps– now the stereo won’t be blaring away for 10 minutes because I forgot to turn the volume down when I shut the car off the night before.

As far as the CM7000 panel location, I didn’t want to cram everything under the driver dash so I ran the wires to the passenger side where I have lots of room to connect everything up. I know it’s a bit messy but if there is a problem…which there was…it’s easy to make changes. Also, if I sell the car, I can remove the panel in under 2 minutes…try doing that if you have it under the dash. I also label all the wires so it’s easy to make changes later.

I hooked up the parking lights to a separate small light I have near the windshield…I don’t want the vehicle sitting, idling, in a parking lot for 10 minutes with the lights on.

When everything was hooked up I turned on the key, watched the Blade lights…solid blue for a few seconds…good…means the Blade is hooked up correctly. Next I tried the door locks– first with the remote. They worked so that was a relief. Next I tried the remote start… it started and ran for 3 seconds then stopped…repeated 2 more times. Something wrong. The remote showed an 08 error code…no tach sense. I would have thought it would sense the tach from the OBD2 wires but not so. Instead I went to section 2–10 and set F04 option. This is the “no tach assume engine is running after 3 seconds.” This worked good and the engine started and kept running.

Next test…remote start the vehicle and put foot on brake…good…engine stopped immediately.

Next tested alarm system…armed vehicle…opened door… siren sounds about 5 seconds after door is opened.

After everything checks out, I put the Compustar CM7000 brain under the center console…lots of room in there, and easy to get at for any changes.

Update—after going through the install manual, I decided to check out the “automatic door unlock on ignition off.” The built-in unlock feature on the my NV200 is unreliable and it seldom unlocked the door. First go to Option menu 1-09 and enable…then go to the 2-way remote, and enable the DRV option. Wow, very convenient, turn the vehicle off and the doors unlock. It was previously quite annoying after turning off the vehicle…try to open the door, only
