08 Honda CRV. Instructions show "(-) While running" with an arrow pointing to a remote.  What exactly does that mean???  What should that blue wire be attached to?

(-)while running is basically just a turn signal. When ground is present on that wire, the key-override-all activates. You need to hook that up the remote starter, which is why you see a little remote icon and this is shown on the top of page 2 in the installation guide.


Remote starter compagnie might have renamed that wire to their liking. It may also be called (-)status ouput, (-)ground-when-running, (-)ground-out and some other variations.


If you look at the remote starter wiring diagram and read their instructions i`m sure you will find which wire the (-)while-running needs to connect to onthe remote starter.

Thanks for you response Robert, I really appreciate it.  These are my two choices on the remote start: "Start (-) programmable output", and "Status (-) programmable output".  These are on a 3 pin Sat. relay port. The third is 12v+.  Should I connect both (-) to the blue wire?

Again, thanks for taking the time.


The one named (-)Status programmable ouput should be the one. You might have to go in the remote starters programming settings to change when it turns on. Hint, it has to be giving a ground signal as soon as you hit the remote starters start button.

Great, thanks Robert. The supplier just got back to me.  He confirmed this as well.

I truly appreciate your help.

Thanks again,
