Question about Remote Starter with Keyless Entry

1 Answer

Remote won't work and parking lights blink

I just installed an RS1100 in a 2004 F150 Ford Pickup. I did include the 791 Transponder. When I plug either or both of the red wires into the box, my flashers blink and I can't the remote to reset or work. I've rechecked all the wiring and they are where they should be.

    Same here...I have an '04 Ford SportTrac. I bought the T-harness and transponder. I placed the extra key into the transponder. Directions say key should be "tight." HOW? You can't bend the loop around the key as mine is wires coated in a hard covering that cracks if you were to try and bend it. Does the key have to be touching the loop or just rest inside. I put some double sided tape on the key to keep it from moving around. Can you have too much tape that the loop doesn't pick up the key's code?. I have a Red LED on the transponder module that is always lit (Should it be?) Where does the blue wire from the transponder box go? My red is hooked to a constant 12V and the ornage is ground.

    The starter module clicks and dash lights flash. OH, and what about this hood switch? It talks about resetting the module by undoing this wire...blah, blah...and stepping on the brake while pressing any key on the remote...yet the t-harness setup does not appear to need this hood switch installed. Love how they leave the details out of an instruction manual that is general enough for over 1000 makes and models of cars. Bulldog...can you get specific please!

    What do you mean by blue wire needs to go to - input. The blue wire is the aux AMA - already.

My viper 5701 transponder gives error code of five blinks even though it does the function

Five blinks of the parking lights during remote starter operation is an error code for the (+) brake shutdown. If your foot is not on the brake then, there is an issue with your brake switch or your parking lights and brake lights wires are making contact, possibly in one of the front or rear light housings. Corrosion maybe.

I have an o3 ford escape with an aftermarket autopage remote start system.when i try to use the remote start it flashes the parking lights and all the accesories fire up but will not ingauge the starter....

the issue is the securilock system I installed one in my 03. You need a spare coded key (one that starts the vehicle) and a Bulldog 791 kit. ths will store the spare key and tell the vehicle it is not being stolen. Its the only way unless you want to leave your key in the ignition. BTW, the Theft light is on when you engage the remote started w/o the key in the ignition, Been there.

I have installed a bulldog security rs82p on a 2004 merc sable. The bypass module used was originally labeled as a model 20402,23402,27402,&29402. This is now the 791 the unit turns on but does NOT...

put your key in the ignition leave it in the off position, now press the remote starter, if it starts you need to adjust the key in the 791, or adjust the transponder loop around the key chamber
