Question about Viper Vehicle Parts & Accessories
I installed the Astrostart RSS-2524 in my girlfriends 2005 mazda 3 with a manual transmission and it is almost working perfectly. I can do the required sequence in the car and take out the key and the car turns off after I close the door. The problem is when I try to remotely restart the car all the dash lights come on and everything just before it is about to crank but then it does not crank. The starter module flashes 4 times which in the manual indicates no RPM detected but that doesn't help because the only reason it doesn't detect RPM is because it is not trying to crank. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Jon

Try first unplugging battery cable for ten minutuse, to reset ECM, and do a scan again, there are too many unrelated error codes at the same time

SOURCE: car starter not working
look under the dash for a small silver toggle switch....this is a disable switch for the remote start portion of the system..you may have kicked it / bumped it with your foot, causing the remote start portion to be deactivated. Just flip the switch the opposite way and try again..
Also, there may have been a pin style switch installed under the hood...Check to see if it is bent or broken, if it is, simply disconnect it and insulate the wire that was going to it.
This wire is used as a safety to keep the vehicle from remote starting while the hood is up..to keep people from being injured if the remote start is activated while the engine is being worked on.
Have whatever shop installed the system replace your pinswitch if that is the problem.

yes you are correct the learn procedure is done by a dei 555L or a 555G bypass module.your car should have one or the other installed on it. simply unplug it,it will be a three wire plug. then plug it back in and then by turning the ignition on and off it will relearn the code.

Usually the car start system has a "Valet" switch hidden somewhere under the dash or in the glove box. This is used to disarm the system for when the vehicle is serviced. You will have to locate and turn the switch on, some units have a small push button. In either case it is a good dea to locate it for future use.
