The car won't start because the Clifford alarm has a starter interrupt wire where the start wire runs through the alarm system module/relay. The unit then must still be active for the car not to start. If pressing the disarm/unlock button on your Clifford key FOB does not turn the system off, you will after to do it manually. You will need to locate the manual override button installed somewhere in the car that is connected to the alarm system. Turn the ignition switch to "on" or "run" and within 10 seconds press the manual override switch. That will turn the alarm system off and allow the car to be driven normally. I would then take the vehicle to an authorized Clifford or other DEI (Viper) install shop and have them diagnose your apparent problem.
it is unlikely that the light is causing the battery to drain. it sounds like the system is in valet mode, if it's an older Clifford with a two button keypad somewhere (typically on the dash), turn ignition on, and press the * button twice, then press and hold the blank button.
if it's a newer Clifford system (Clifford Matrix), locate the valet button, then turn the key to ignition (ON), then off and press and release the valet button.
With any door open click the LOCK key then UNLOCK then LOCK again... you should hear a series of beeps and the Red indicator light with stop flashing... the alarm is now bypassed. Repeat the procedure to enable the alarm.
However if your car has the remote start feature you may be having another issue altogether let me know if this solves your issue.
Assuming that all is well with the vehicle's electrical system (fuses, etc...), the following should work, as Viper/Clifford uses the "fail safe" method of starter disable, and it only works to lock out the starter when the alarm is functioning properly and in the armed state.
That system has a "starter kill" system. When the alarm is actived, the starter kill is engages, and won't let the starter get voltage from the ignition switch. First thing I'd try is connecting the car's battery while the ignition key is turned to the "on/run" position. Cycle the alarm to arm, then disarm, so that the LED is not blinking. It also may require using the manual override button/switch (with the key on) to reset the alarm. Should start after that.
If all else fails, reconnecting the starter wires back together (they are spliced and running through the alarm via a SPDT relay.
How do you reset the remote, alarm. I have a scytek two way security alarm, remote start. I can lock and unlock my vehicle, however the remote start and alarm won't work. When I press the middle button to have the car start it just beeps, and when I lock my car it just locks it doesn't beep to let me know the alarm is on.
Please advise, do I need another alarm, or just reset it.
you have the key pad lock turned on. It protects the keys from unwanted pressing when in your pocket. To unlock you hit the F key then the unlock key, you can now use any command untill you let it set for 60 seconds, then it locks again.
to stop this totally, u hold down the F key for 12 seconds it will beep and top light turns orange, then hold down the unlock key for 2 seconds, it beeps then u hit the lock key to turn off this feature (top green light goes out). then hold F down, and F down again, should b good to go!
