Question about Viper Security and Remote Start System (basic install included)

The car would just stall for no apparent reason

Around the end of October I began experiencing the following: the car would just stall for no apparent reason. When it stalled the door locks would unlock an the instrument lights would go on. If I was going slow when this happened I would have to put the car in neutral an restart it; if I was on the highway the car stalled out the the door locks would unlock an the instrument lights would go on and the car would restart on its own, I'm sure this is due to the speed of the car at the time. I felt it had something to do with the remote starter. I returned to where it was purchased. They checked it and felt that they could not confirm what the problem might be. Well it's been about seven weeks and the car has been fine. It may have been a short or something that they unknowingly touched, which corrected the problem. Anyway the problem has returned. Do you have any ideas what the problem could be? We have several of these units on various family cars and never experienced anything like this. please advise,

Low batteries in my safemark safe- how do i open?

e-bar is not a battery problem, it means the door lock is jammed, either use a rubber malet or your balled up fist and after inputting the code to unlock hit the door of the safe all around the key pad as hard a you can, your will hear the rods moving and unlocking the door. Hope this helps. I know it works I do this at the hotel I work in.

When starting it cold, it starts then stalls. Then repeats this process three time and then stops. It works fine if the key is in the ignition as well as when it is warm. Any thoughts?

You are having problems with the car reading the transponder in the key. Take apart the steering column and there should be a coil ring around the key cylinder. Move the ring closer to the outside of the key cylinder. If that doesnt work then you may have a problem with the interface module.

Garage door wont close completely

There are a couple of reasons this might happen. First make sure it closes by hand all the way, if not there is something wrong with the door that will need attention first. If it does close then hook the opener back up. On the opener rail at the end by your header there is a little magnetic relay that is wired to the motor head. This can be moved farther up or down the rail. This sensor tells the opener when to stop in the downward direction. Loosen the set screw and move it toward the header 1/2 inch or so and try to lower the door. Do not move it too much at one time and if you do the door will hit the ground and come back up. Thanks BB

Carbon monoxide detector err code

Detecotrs have a limited lifespan of 5-7 years. So sounds like you need new one (It's not worth to buy just a sensor). Take a look on amazon: Amazon com Carbon monoxide detector (watch out on reviews). I hope this was helpful. cheers

Alarm goes off before any vibration has occurred....

It may be the device. I bought two of them at the same time. One has worked fine but the other went off for no apparent reason at 5:00 AM. It does wake you up out of a deep sleep. After reading some about it I figured the airconditioner was moving some clothing on the door and the movement set it off or the device was just not a good one. I quit using it but continue to use the other and it works fine. Just your air conditioning vent or things you might have hanging on the door.

Hope this helps,

Viper 4806v won't program I am trying to install a viper 4806v two-way remote start/keyless entry in my automatic 2004 toyota camry LE 4cyl. I got the lock/unlock, horn, lights to work, and trunk pop to work. I can't seem to get the remote start to work. When I press the remote start button on the remote keypad, the car does not start and the headlights flash 7 times. Troubleshooting says 7 flashes mean a manual transmission mode error. This means I have to enter programming menu 3 and change the starter to automatic mode. When I follow the directions to get to menu 3, nothing happens because I cannot get to menu 3 when I hold down the control button after turning the ignition off. In other words, the control button is not working. The neutral switch is on like it is supposed to be. Kind of bummed about this. Could use some guidance. My wiring goes accordingly and this car does not have an immobilizer because I used a regular metal key to start it. This car has no alarm, just a stock keyless entry, trunk release, and panic button. Again, the problem is :The remote start comes in default manual transmission mode so I have to switch it to automatic transmission mode but I can't seem to enter programming. When I try to enter programming with the procedure followed using the control button, nothing happens. It does not chirp and the LED does not blink. I also cannot enter valet mode using the control button. When the car is locked, the LED blinks and stop blinking if car is unlocked ignition is turned on. I do not understand what is going on.
