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.

I have DRL on my car and with the factory alarm remote when you press either the lock or unlock the head lights or the parking lights come on. With my Viper 2 way remote no lights come on when pressin


The Viper alarm (and most other alarms) are designed to be connected to the parking lights.The headlights are not meant to be flashed continuously, as when the alarm is triggered. If you want the headlights to activate with the alarm then, the parking light wire from the Viper needs to be connected to the headlight wire instead. NOT RECOMMENDED.
Although the Viper alarm may or may not have a horn output (you didn't mention the model) ,it can be connected and it can be programmed to sound either when the alarm is triggered or all the time(depending on the model).
By the way, the Driving while Running Lights are seperate from the Sentry Illumination Lights. The Sentry Illumination Lights are designed to illuminate the area in front and around of the vehicle before and after entry. They can be programmed for the time that they will illuminated before and after entry.

Parking and cab lights don't flash where arming or disarming. Also Lights don't say illuminated when remote start is on. Did i turn this function off?


It's possible that the parking kight wire is no longer connected or, the (alarm's) fuse for the parking is blown. The parking light fuse for the 5701 is located behind the door on the alarm module.

My viper 5701 transponder gives error code of five blinks even though it does the function


Five blinks of the parking lights during remote starter operation is an error code for the (+) brake shutdown. If your foot is not on the brake then, there is an issue with your brake switch or your parking lights and brake lights wires are making contact, possibly in one of the front or rear light housings. Corrosion maybe.

I purchased and programmed a new remote to my 5701 starter.security system. the lock and unlock functions work byt i just get a loud beep, flashing red light on the remote and my headlights blink 7 times


The seven flashes from your parking lights is the remote starter error diagnostic. Seven flashes is the message for neutral safety wire. The toggle switch under the dash is in the off position or, if the small, thin black with white wire is not connected to ground.

I have a viper 791xv carstarter/alarm the battery had to be replaced on the car and the alarm works but the remote sart won't start the car on key pad it shows it 's start but then it beeps and is gone...


The parking light flashes are a diagnostic report to alert you to the reason the remote starter is not working:

5 flashes; brake wire is active
6 flashes; hood pin is active
7 flashes; manual transmission mode is enabled and not initialized
8 flashes; neutral safety wire has no ground or the switch is OFF.

Count the flashes and you will be able to go directly to the problem. Enjoy.

Cannot get to work with manual transmission please help with any ideas?


There are several steps necessary for the unit to function with manual transmission. Now,the unit comes programmed for manual transmission out of the box. Next, the neutral safety wire (thin black with white stripe) MUST be connected to the parking brake wire. Also, the tachometer wire MUST be connected. Check the neutral safety switch as well. Did you install a clutch bypass? All that is left is the system setup for remote start: Start the vehicle with the key,make sure all doors are closed, put the vehicle in neutral, press on the brake, apply parking brake, release brake, within 15 seconds remote start the vehicle, the parking lights will flash to confirm the remote start activation, turn the ignition off ( the vehicle should stay running.Exit the vehicle. Arm the alarm ( the vehicle should shut off). You are now able to operate the remote start. This process must be done each time you exit for the remote starter to function on a manual transmission vehicle. Don't worry ,you'll get used to it.

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.

Remote start will not work, it keeps giving error message of 8 parking light flashes which say the neutral safety switch isn't grounded, but it is. Any ideas?


is there a toggle that was installed inline? If the unit doesnt see a ground on the neutral afety switch wire, the remote starter will not crank.

Parking lights will not come on. I check the fuses and its ok.


Hello
Welcome.
I would check the head light switch see if we have power in to the switch
from there see if there is power out. sounds like a bad switch if the park lamp relay is ok

If your vehicle has daytime running lights they will be on when remote started no real way around that try leaving your parking brake on.
The new vipers default setting is constant rather than flashing.

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.
