    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.

Have you changed the battery recently? My remote has a bad habot of slightly misaligning the cel switches if I don't close it exactly right. For my Chrysler van the sliding door switch is affected that way. All else works, though. I end up opening the remote again and ensuring it snaps shut all the way around with just one compression. If an edge doesn't close it's try again. The good news is it's virtually always the remote at issue and nothing expensive in the vehicle.

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.

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.

Viper works but remote start and keyless entry does not

On the remote start part, it might be as simple as relearning the tach. To do this, crank the car with the key, press and hold the valet switch until the led lights and stays solid now release.Try the remote start. Need to know what kind of car to comment on doorlocks.
