I had the same problem with my vs1100xr. The remotes for these (and other) unidens have a rolling code. Seems to me that either the remote runs out of new codes and cycles back to the beginning, or the alarm base unit somehow loses track of the codes. Either way, the alarm base unit stops accepting the codes of your remote, and so needs to be purged of its code tracking memory - reset, if you like. This is essentially the procedure for training the alarm base unit to recognise new remote (and forgetting old remotes).
This procedure is:-
1) Disarm alarm, or if in valet mode, take it out of valet mode (push valet button 3 times)
2) Turn the ignition on and off 2 times within 15 seconds.
3) Put the alarm into valet mode (push valet button 3 times) within 15 seconds of completing step 2. Alarm should beep, and remote training has started.
4) Within 15 seconds of completing step 3, push the button (#1) of the first remote you wish to use for the alarm. Alarm should beep, indicating acceptance of remote. Repeat for other remotes you wish to use - up to 4 in total. (Once the first remote has been accepted, you have all the time in the world to make the alarm learn other remotes)
5) Turn ignition on and off to end remote learning mode. Alarm should beep 2 times. New remotes have now been learned and previous remotes forgotten.

Some of these details may vary from country to country - who knows. If this doesn't work, I suggest that you contact Uniden in your country to obtain the procedure. Took me a few tries to get the timing right, what with the valet button hard to get at and having only 15 seconds between steps.

Just adding to gem001's perfect answer above there are a few little steps that you must ensure you are doing otherwise nothing works.

FIRSTLY. Locate your valet alarm button. This is usually somewhere underneath the fuse box near to where the bonnet release is. To acess mine I had to remove the plastic covering that hides all the ignition wires. You will likely see the alarms "brain" or control with a whole bunch of wires. Ignore these. To the right of this up against the cars panelling will be a small push button. It will be difficult to locate but once you spot it, you will think its obvious. Mine is sort of about shin height.

SECONDLY. now you have the valet button begin gem001's instructions. HOWEVER step number 1. ensure the keys are in the ignition and the car is turned to ON before pressing the valet button 3 times.

If the ignition is not on the on position you cannot enter or exit valet mode.

Alternatively if you are stuck somewhere and it is embarrassing that you have just been standing next to an car with its alarm going off for 30 minutes. Enter valet mode (ignition on, press button 3 times within 15 seconds ), and then turn your car on and drive it home. Your alarm is effectively off until you take it out of valet mode. Use your key to lock the vehicle etc until you have time to retrain your remote alarm sensor as detailed above.

Good luck!

Notes: NOTE: Jeep vehicles that use a gray ignition key have an immobilizer system that needs to be bypassed when remote starting. Use DEI part number 555C or 555U. *1 Use orange/black and pink/black at the drivers door lock switch to lock and unlock the drivers door. Use orange/purple and pink/purple at the passengers door lock switch to lock and unlock all of the other doors. *2 The dk. blue/pink will flash the hazard lights. They will flash even with a latch input to the wire. The parking lights can be activated by using a 1300 ohm resistor to ground on the yellow headlight wire. *3 Use a 330 ohm resistor to ground for headlight activation. Use 80 ohms to ground on the same wire to operate both the headlights and parking lights. *4 There are 4 separate door triggers wire, one for each door. Use all 4 wires and diode isolate each together. The drivers door is tan/red at the drivers door lock switch. The passenger door is tan/red at the passengers door lock switch. The drivers rear door is tan/orange and the passengers rear door is tan/yellow at the BCM. WHEN USING A 455J INTERFACE MODULE, IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO USE THE SEPARATE TRIGGER WIRES. USE THE YELLOW WIRE AT THE UNDERDASH LIGHT FOR DOOR TRIGGER. *5 Factory alarm disarm requires a 463 ohm resistor to ground on the lt.green/orange wire at the drivers door lock switch, you MUST use a relay. *6 The 4.7L motor has a separate coil for each cylinder. Go to any coil and use any wire that is NOT dk. green/orange. On the 4.0L motor use any of the tan/stripe wires at the coil pack, or go to one of the fuel injector and use the wire that is NOT dk. green/orange. *7 Can also use DEI part number 455J door lock interface control module. This will control door lock, unlock, arm, disarm, dome light supervision and more.

Hi, my kid was playing with my remote starter and when i came to use use it, i couldn't turn on/off my car using the remote. i can lock and unlocked the doors. please help. joe


Hello.... sorry to hear you are having a problem. It sounds as if the system may be in valet mode. A lot of remote start systems have a feature like this to keep the car from starting. You can turn this mode on when you are having your vehicle serviced and it keeps the car from accidentally starting when a mechanic is working on the engine. It will still allow you to use the lock features but not the starter. If you will let me know the make and model of the system you are using I can research this for you. Also the make, model and year of the vehicle would be helpful as well. Hope this helps!

The alarm works and the remote is perfect. but when i arm the alarm on the car it goes off about 2 minutes after the arming, and it goes off all by its self


Hello... sorry to hear you are having a problem. Is this a system from the factory or an aftermarket alarm? Did you just purchase the car with this problem or did you just install it/have it installed?

This can be done on most alarm systems. Visit a quality stereo store or the store you had the unit installed at and they can help you with it.

Notes:
NOTE: This vehicle is equipped with a passive immobilizer that needs to be bypassed for remote start operation only. Use DEI part number 555U to bypass. *1 The DDM (drivers door module) is located in the center of the drivers door. *2 Requires a double pulse to unlock. *3 Parking lights require a negative trigger with a 1800 ohm resistor in-line to the white/green wire. Using a negative trigger with a 780 ohm resistor in-line to the same white/green wire will turn on the headlights as well as the parking lights. *4 This wire may cause the aftermarket alarm to false when the vehicles electrical system shuts down. Use a relay to isolate it. *5 The FEM (Front Electronic Module) is located in the drivers kick panel. The REM (Rear Electronic Module) is located in the trunk, just above the battery. hope that helps

Remote will not arm or disarm

Viper Car Alarm problem


My initial thought is the alarm somehow drained the battery down so low that there's not enough power to even turn on the LED or start the car. If that's the case, getting a jump from another vehicle should at least let you disarm the alarm and start the car.

Beyond that, you'll probably need to reference the manual for your model alarm. You can find the manuals here.
