20 Most Recent Remote Start System Questions & Answers

Does the remote diarm the alarm? Do you hear the " chirp chirp" when you press the unlock button on the remote? If not, then the remote is defective or needs to be reprogrammed to the alarm. If you do hear the " chirp chirp" but, the doors do not unlock, then the issue is with either the wiring from the alarm or the vehicles power locks. Did it work before? Do you have power door locks?

If it backfired it's quite often timing. I don't know what motor you have but see if you can check the timing. If it's not the timing check if the car has a camshaft and or crankshaft sensor. If one of those go bad she wont start. Another quick test is to spray starting fluid or some carb cleaner into the intake and swing it over ... if it starts you have a fuel issue. Maybe the pump.

Avital and viper remotes even though they look the same, they operate at different freqs. Im a retired alarm installer i could never get them to interchange.

The asterisk button controls the remote starter feature. Press and release one time, wait. The parking lights should flash confirming that the unit received the command. If pressing the button one time doesn't work, try two times.

Just had the same issue with my remote start. 2006 f-350 with a 6.0 powerstroke. Remote start module was in virtual tach mode and that does not work with diesel engines. Just had to have the remote start reprogrammed and put back into tach sense mode. Hope this helps.

Did you connect the tach wire of the unit to your car? if not you need to refer to your documentation to turn on or off the tachless operation for the unit to work correctly.

Consider how the switch will be used before choosing a mounting location. Check for rear clearance before drilling a 9/32-inch hole and mounting the switch.The GRAY wire in the two-pin plug may also be used as a (+) ghost switch input and can be connected to any (+) switch in the vehicle. (See Feature Descriptions section of this guide.)

This is from the installation manual for the Viper 300. To answer your question, it is probably camoflaged. They only needed to tie +12vdc to the input line. What does this mean? Well, my best guess is, they are using one of your switches on your dash to act as the Valet function. Look for where the Gray wire, from the wiring harness of the Viper goes to: that WILL BE your hidden Valet switch. Best of luck!

It says its a Viper alarm system. . If the alarm system is active, reprogramming the ignition keys was a waste of money. The problem is in the control box for the viper alarm system. It has disabled the ignition because it thinks that is being broken into. there are sensors that monitor the the vehicles vibration and is probably a problem with one of the sensors or maybe even the control box itself.

You need to re-program the TACH wire.. open the door start the car with the key, between 5 seconds press the valet switch 1 time and press it again and hold it until the led flashes and the car will beep and then turn it off and start the car with the remote and it should be programed now. if that doesn't work take it to a authorized viper dealer to have it fixed.
