SOURCE: Change VIPER Responder One runtime

Actually the first solution may or may not be true. If whomever installed the remote starter "locked" the programming with a bitwriter, then you will need to take it back to someone with a bitwriter to unlock and change the setting. If it was not locked then you can change run times for that model yourself. You have choices of 12, 24 or 60 minutes. 12 is the factory setting (with a bitwriter you can choose in one minute increments). If your system is unlocked this is how you can change the runtime setting. It's a bit of a pain so you might want to write it down. There should be a small programming button attached to wires coming from the "brain". First, locate that button. 1. Turn ignition key on then back off. 2. Quickly push and HOLD the programming button. If the horn was hooked up to the remote start system, it should honk once. (If it wasn't you'll have to look for a small led status light on the brain that should flash once) To change runtime, keep holding the button down till the horn honks twice (or the led flashes twice). 3. Release button after horn honks twice (or led flashes twice.) You are now in menu two where runtime is set. 4. Within 10 seconds, press and release the programming button two times. Now push and HOLD the programming button. You are now on feature two of menu two (runtime options). While still holding the programming button in, press the remote start button on the fob the number of times that corresponds with the run time you want. once = 12 minutes, twice = 24 minutes and three times equals 60 minutes. After selection has been made release programming button. The programming sequence will be cancelled if any of the following occur: Ignition is turned on or programming button is pressed too many times or more than 25 seconds elapses between steps. Like I said, it is a pain to do manually and there is a possibility you could mess up other settings if you get it wrong. But this is what the install manual states if you want to give it a go. Good luck!

I purchased the truck used came with viper and auto mate remote starter. Truck starts on its own twice a day and runs for about 20 minutes. How do I turn off remote timer?

you will need to look at the control module under the driver dash for the model number of the remote start. Visit directed,com and find the manual for your unit. follow steps for changing whatever features you like. ..or visit a local aftermarket auto shop who sells remote starters. any decent shop should be able to get it done in a half hour or so.

Viper 7752v won't open doors without car running

can you check your vehicle battery anything under or around 12 volts only will cause problems with the alarm. 12.05-12.08 volts is fine. usually means there is a problem with the battery as when engine running it will charge battery upto full voltage. if the battery is fine then there may be a problem with the wiring, ie not getting a good connection on the alarm this will lower the voltage to the alarm and cause same problem.

How do you reprogram start duration for a longer time

You do realize that there are multiple remote starter manufacturers and, that these multiple manufacturers have different programming methods. However, the 12 minute run time is a default run time for Directed Electronics (Viper, Python, Clifford, Avital, etc) but, that does not mean that it is a DEI product. If it is a DEI product and you wish to change your runtime to 20 minutes, it can only be done with a BITWRITER. The installer should have this. The runtime settings that are optional without the bitwriter are 12, 24 and, 60 minutes for the more expensive units.

It sounds like the turbo timer mode is active. In this procedure, the MTS remote starter is active, it's just that once set (after locking the vehicle) the vehicle will run the preset time(1,3,5 or 10 minutes) before shutting down. The MTS remote starter feature should still operate with the turbo timer mode.

It sounds like you have your ignition and starter wires reversed. The remote start programs when the ignition wire sees 12 volts and then loses the 12 volts. If you have the remote starts igniton wire on the trucks starter wire then that is why you can prgram it when you start it only... cause you get 12 volt only when the truck cranks and then loses the 12 volts once it is runnng. You may have the right colors from the remote starter correct but check to see if maybe from DEI they have the wires in the wrong positions.

Yes your alrm could have been installed wrong. Depending on where the tech hooked up his wiring he maybe at a spot where the alarm is not allowing the trucks computers to shut down. The trucks computers should shut down after 20 minutes to where it draws only 20 to 30 milliamps. If the tech hooked up his wiring in the wrong locations the computer may never shut down and will stay at 150 to 200 milliamp draw which in this case would drain the battery
