Can I get the installation wiring diagram for remote starter viper where can this be found

1998 Cherokee?
wow , old bendix starters ,they are long long gone, (done many)
a blast from the past. LOL
so is this an after market hacked in Remote?>
well buy a new system and read the instructions.
if using an old system , get the instructions online, at makers web site, we can not guess makers, of anything aftermarket.

it hangs up the starter solenoid, , and is very dangerous to you , like that. sure.
my guess is the control (in car) is bad, shorted relay in box or transistor that drives the small wire to the starter, or to cars starter relay .

the starter relay is in the USA PDC fuse box.
all answers USA , not export jeeps, this is a USA forum (calif)

I have a 2008 ford escape 2wd 3.0 and i put a new starter on it and when i reconnect the battery the starter starts to wind and i don't have the key in the ignition. What did i do wrong?

there are two large bolt electrical terminals on most starters one has nothing on it ,thats where the battery wire hooks up + and the other (looks just like other one) has a small bent piece of metal that connects to starter under it's bolt that's Not where you hook battery , if you did hook it there the starter would run as soon as you hook up battery
ooh and the two bolts and anything connected to them can not touch each other or anything else
try looking at that

What wire could I splice into on my 1996 Toyota Corolla so that my Tach can read the RPM's from?

If the tach was an option for your corolla, it is very likely that the wiring harness in your car would have the connector for the tach. They would use the same wiring harness to cut costs, and whatever is not used would be left open on a car without a tach. You will have to find a wiring diagram to check for the tach connector-it would be up under the dash leading to the cluster. In earlier days, tachs were connected to the coil's negative side of the primary circuit.

2004 Ford Taurus. Installed after market Prestige starter. model: APS-620N. Door lock and unlock work. Trunk works. Parking light do NOT light up when programming or locking/unlocking doors. Not receiving...

If this problem started just by changing the starter, either there is a wire unhooked or somehow switched, I do not think the starter would cause that as long as it was the right starter. It should have been identical to the old starter.

Remote Car Starter with tachless vehicle. (Tach Lock-out)

Did you read the requirements for your particular system? The reason I ask is most remote starters will not work on a vehicle with a manual transmission, because of thier need to have the clutch pedal depressed in order to engage the starter.
