    When I press the remote to start the car, lights flash but car won't start. Remote itself seems to be wearing out. Have to press harder each time I try to lock and unlock the car. Sometimes I have to go through this several times before it works and lately have had to be standing right next to the car or right in front of it to unlock.

I would sugest first that you check your users manual. You may have changed a setting with out knowing. if you cannot find your manual just go here

it is in PDF format. If that is a no go your car may have a demobilizer and your bypass module may have become defctive or not installed properly. hope this helps.

Aps57c can't learn tachometer

Yes, the seven flashes indicate that the system did not learn tach. Do you have the tach wire connected at the coil or an injector? If so, turn the ignition on, press and release the programming button three times, turn the ignition off. Press and hold the programming button, start the vehicle. Continue to hold the programming button. The parking light should be flashing at this time. after about 15 seconds, release the programming button, the parkings will come solid and then go off. Turn the vehicle off, the tach is now programmed. Test the system.
If the tach wire is not connected, you can program the system for tachless/voltage.
Turn the ignition on, press and release the programming button three times, turn the ignition off. Turn the ignition on,off, on, then press the programming button 5 times ( the parking lights will flash five times, press the lock button on the remote three times. This will put your setting at voltage. The setting for crank time is still set at averging so, you will have to start the vehicle four(4) times with the key so the remote starter can average the crank time.

98 bravada starts then dies security light is flashing

You state that the vehicle starts, then dies. Does this happen with the key or with the remote starter?
If this happens with the remote starter, there may be an issue with the immobilizer bypass. If the bypass you have installed is the Passlock SL2, Check the power, ground when running and chassis ground connections as well as the data and ground connections at the steering column.
The Passlock SL2 should not prevent the vehicle from starting because no wires are cut. The resistance may fluctuate between the key and BCM from time to time so, the SL2 should read the accurate resistance each time the key is turned to start the vehicle.
If this issue is occuring with the key, try to reset the vehicle security: Apply the vehicle parking brake. This will keep the day time running lights from coming on and draining the battery during this procedure. Turn the ignition on (make sure it's ignition and not accessory), DO NOT ATTEMPT TO START. If you attempt to start the vehicle during this procedure you will have to start over.The security light will flash during this time. This process takes approximately ten minutes. After approximately ten minutes, the security light will come on solid and then go off. If this happens, turn the vehicle off, then start the vehicle. This is considered a soft reset.
If the security light continues to flash after ten minutes, turn the key off and attempt the reset again. Two to three attempts is a hard reset.

I bought a 2007 Camry with a remote start. The seller doesn't know how to start the car with the remote. The remote is a 4 button Viper 474V.

First, be sure that the remote is programmed for the vehicle by using it to operate the door locks(pressing the lock and unlock buttons). The parking lights should flash if nothing else works.The usual way to operate the remote starter with this remote is by pressing the * button once but, the option could have changed if the remote has been reprogrammed differently. So, try pressing the * button once. If this doesn't work press it twice within two seconds.If this doesn't work try pressing the lock and unlock buttons at the same time. If these steps fail to initiate the remote starter try the steps listed for the * button with the aux button. If either of the remote starter inhibits (hood pin, neutral safety) are active you should receive flashing parking lights for a failed attempt to remote start.

I bought a new key fob for my audiovox aps 686 and have no clue how to program it. I looked at unit under the dash have found no buttons to reprogram it. Anybody know?

Did the unit have anything plugged into the blue two pin port? If so, trace that wire (black & gray) to the programming switch. Once you have located the switch, turn key on, press and release the button three times. The parking lights will flash once. Press the lock button on the new remote. Press and release the programming button once (two flashes), press unlock button. Press and release probramming button once( three flashes), press remote start button. Press and release programming button once (four flashes), press option button. Turn key off. test system.

Extra chirp

Check to see if a door is not closed all the way or the dome lights are stuck on for some reason. Also check any other switches that might have been added like hood or trunk. The extra chirp after arming usually indicates something was not closed completely and the alarm will bypass that protected area until corrected. Delayed dome lights will cause this, but you would have noticed it long ago. DC

from Note: All transmitter codes must be learned at time of programming!! The unit will learns up to 4 different transmitter codes. 1. Open Hood (If no hood pin installed with your system, then you must ground the Gray Hood pin wire). 2. Turn key to the ON position. (Pink wire must be connected.) 3. Press Programming button 4 times, then after a few seconds the unit flashes the parking lights 4 times. 4. Press button #1 of the transmitter to be coded. You should get 2 light flashes indicating the unit is waiting for a 2nd code, then press button #1 of a second transmitter, the unit will flash 3 times indicating its waiting for the 3rd code and so on. If all 4 codes are learned, the unit will automatically exit code learning mode, otherwise turn key off and close hood. See diagram below.
