How do I use the wireless ignition node (WIN)?

A: The wireless ignition node (WIN) works very...

The wireless ignition node (WIN) works very similarly to a standard ignition system. If your car comes with a remote keyless entry (RKE) key fob, then it also has a WIN system. To use the WIN, insert the RKE fob into the WIN; and rotate clockwise. The WIN has four settings. OFF (where your RKE key fob will begin), ACC (which will allow most electrical units to perform, ON/RUN (which powers the electrical units by turning on the vehicle), and RUN (which turns on the engine and allows you to drive). The RUN setting is spring-loaded, so you have to turn the key a little stronger to start your engine.
