Most alarm installers use in line connectors or crimp-on connectors. If you can identify these connections looking under the dash, you will have to give it a little twist. Usually this allows it to make contact again.

Why I do not hear the siren chirp when arming and disarming?


Sounds like your alarm is set up for "Silent Arming" for when you dont want to wake up neighbors, kids etc. scroll thru your setup menu and see if silent arming is engaged, if so disengage.If you need more help email me avpowerstn@qnet.com (Jim)

Why does my viper alarm suddenly start chirping?


Mine does that too (chirps 8 times), every 4 to 8 hours or so (seems to be random but persistent). The alarm was installed November 2014 and I just started noticing it in May 2015, possibly because I am now within earshot of where my car is parked?

No key in ignition, door wide open, press lock-unlock-lock within one second. That will valet the alarm and the led will light up steady. Follow same instructions to remove alarm from valet mode.

Everything on my viper 5601 system install on a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 works except the remote start


Check the toggle switch, usually mounted under dash. It's simple on/off switch. Or it's your hood pin switch.
Or tell me how many times your parking lights flash when you push the remote start button and I'll def tell you the issue.

Viper Responder 350 2 Way


Well, the problem is that the remotes don't just lose programming from a simple battery swap. Either the original installer ran a separate power source to the battery for the unit and the repair shop just didn't hook it up or when they installed the new battery or if your car was jumped to get it started it may have blown the fuse for the security system. So bring it back to the installer or put the car in valet mode.

Lost my Viper key fob alarm is on and cannot start truck. any solution to disable?


Your alarm should have a button that was installed called a valet. What you want to do is put your key in the ignition turn it to the on position (Don't start it) then with the car in the on position hold down the valet button until the led light on the alarm goes solid and you should here the alarm beep twice. now your alarm will be disabled. To reable the alarm do the same thing.

You have to turn your ignition on and press the valet button switch, to turn off the alarm. Then, you have to use that same valet button to learn the remote to your alarm, following the steps in the installation manual.

Parking lights stay on when i use the remote to lock or start trk


I had a transmission wire reversed on mine and it would not shift into 3rd gear, when I used remote start. Seems like a wire may have gotten crossed or the hood safety switch may have come loose and is indicating a safety problem.

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.
