    hi i have this same problem, i own a vauxhall bertone with a state of the art viper system that has all the bells and whistles, but the car wont communicate with the remote anymore, the remote constantly played that start-up melody for some reason, think something was loose inside, i then changed the battery and its just buggered up, checked all the manuels and couldnt find any help, get a green light that flashes every time i press a button but get no joy, i thought these guys were the best for alarms, did i waste £600??? please help, tried all the obvious fixes like disconnecting the batt, no luck, girfriend threw box and reciepts away last month, i am one unlucky bleeder, i am also living in handsworth wood , so if anyone lives in that vicinity knows what thats like with sticky fingered tWocers, so having a kitted out bertone thats worth £30k is worrying. please hellllllp!

    I have never taken the battery out. It's only 2 months old. Just had it installed. I think I did something wrong with the remote once and now the chirps have been turned off. I noticed the valet light doesn't blink anymore too. Had to be owner error.

Put the key in the ignition turn in two clicks. Take the key out hold down the program/valet button on the remote start then hit the unlock button on the remote.

First, check the battery in the remote control unit. It may be dead, or the battery contact has broken loose from the board and needs to be resoldered. If the remote control unit looks good, check the receiver in the vehicle. Make sure the wiring harness is properly connected and undamaged and the fuse is good.

Remote car starter worked last week but this week it won't start. Changed battery in the remote and still won't start. It will unlock and lock the doors but just won't start.

It probably needs to be re-programed

My battery ran low and I jump started my car which some how caused the problem. My viper technician made me a buy new remote but the problem continued even with the new remote.
Try disconnecting the battery of your car for ten minutes and then reconnecting it. It worked for me. Now i have a extra remote which i don't need.

The alarm doesn't chirp and no flash of my headlights anymore. Also the blue light stays on the little receiver/antenna on the windshield wheather it is locked or not. What is the problem?

sounds like the alarm went into valet mode. that's usually what a solid blue light means on most viper alarms. check your owners manual on how to take the alarm out of valet mode. with the 5701 alarm its usually done with the remote. hope this helps

Car starts all by itself....

Sounds like you have it in a timed start mode. Are you remote starting your car with the lock and unlock buttons? I have also seen viper remote starts crank the car when the battery level is low, if it is in voltage mode instead of tach mode. Once the voltage gets so low it will crank the car and allow it to charge the battery.
