Viper 478v remote won't arm / disarm alarm

I have a Viper 791XV using a 478V/P/C remote. The system started acting flakey. At first I had to press the arm or disarm button on the remote several times to get the system to arm / disarm the alarm. Now it has become so unreliable that I'm no longer using the system. The remote says it is sending the signal, but then it chimes that it did not receive a response from the alarm unit. I can still use the aux button to pop the trunk reliably, with no problems. Is my remote going bad?

SOURCE: my viper 2 way pager remote will not arm or disarm

It could be set on car #2. Press function for 8 seconds and a light next to lock should come on. If the light next to unlock and lock (two lights) then it is set to #2 car (you can operate 2 cars with one remote). All you have to do is press function again to toggle between the two cars. You want to end up with only one light showing.
So, hold function for 8 seconds, then after a light shows, release and press function until you only see the one light.

SOURCE: viper alarm keypad will beep for 30 seconds every time I arm or disarm

Change the battery, 2-way remotes require 2 slim batteries on top of one another. Regular remotes only require 1.

SOURCE: My Viper 791xv remote isn't receiving the page

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.

I have 2004 chev tahoe w/ a viper remote starter system,but no key fob. I replaced the car battery & now the cars computer won't let it start. How do I reset the computer?


The car's computer wont let it start?
Well, if you changed the battery and the viper alarm is the issue; locate the push button valet/programming switch. Turn the ignition on, press and release the switch. The alarm will disarm and you can start the vehicle.
To put the alarm in valet, turn the ignition on then off, within 10 seconds press and release the valet switch. The LED will illuminate solid to show that the system is in valet.

The car itself does not beep when the alarm is armed or disarmed


An output wire is not connected, you'll need to connect the brown wire on the 12 pin harness to the siren, it will be pin number 10. Either that or your siren is bad.

Viper 5901, Ford 2008 6.4/ When I use the trucks door keypad


If you use the viper remote to arm the alarm, you MUST use the viper remote to disarm the alrm prior to opening the door. The only REAL solution is to add the keyless entry feature to the viper system, and quit using hte factory remote all together.

Viper remote starter sets off alarm.


Whoever hooked up your system did not hook up the factory alarm disarm and arm wires. Your car thinks it is being stolen as a result of this. You need to get a wire diagram of your car and hook up the proper wires.
