The car won't start because the Clifford alarm has a starter interrupt wire where the start wire runs through the alarm system module/relay. The unit then must still be active for the car not to start. If pressing the disarm/unlock button on your Clifford key FOB does not turn the system off, you will after to do it manually. You will need to locate the manual override button installed somewhere in the car that is connected to the alarm system. Turn the ignition switch to "on" or "run" and within 10 seconds press the manual override switch. That will turn the alarm system off and allow the car to be driven normally. I would then take the vehicle to an authorized Clifford or other DEI (Viper) install shop and have them diagnose your apparent problem.
Yes, to do a remote start properly, a bypass module will be needed. The less expensive ones will require you to lose a key. The better one will program to your car using 2 existing working keys. Many online retailers sell them. Look for Fortin, Idatalink, etc.
go to IDATALINK.com,you can enter your car specs and buy correct interface module, door locks park lights dome lights and ignition module.i installed audiovox aps 997c remote start alarm with their module works like a champ.VERY INVOLVED INSTALL
it is unlikely that the light is causing the battery to drain. it sounds like the system is in valet mode, if it's an older Clifford with a two button keypad somewhere (typically on the dash), turn ignition on, and press the * button twice, then press and hold the blank button.
if it's a newer Clifford system (Clifford Matrix), locate the valet button, then turn the key to ignition (ON), then off and press and release the valet button.
the reset button is under the dash somewhere. Different installers like to hide them in different spots look in the kick panels or just get in there with a flashlight I've had installers put them pretty far up there. just make sure you don't pull on any wires.
I have also seen an installer put the switch in the glove box so give that a shot as well.
the db-dlm3 is a module to make your door locks work with any alarm. the transmitter is not programed to the module but to the alarm if you need to program transmitter turn key to on position push valet 5 times then hit lock button on remote
I have installed 4 deluxe 200s ( 2 on my vehicles and one on each of my parents) and I seem to have problems with the remotes dying but no other problems. I had to buy another unit just to get the remote so now I have an extra deluxe brain brain. If you are interested email me email@example.com If you decide to get a different unit I might be interested in buying your remote.
Assuming that all is well with the vehicle's electrical system (fuses, etc...), the following should work, as Viper/Clifford uses the "fail safe" method of starter disable, and it only works to lock out the starter when the alarm is functioning properly and in the armed state.
That system has a "starter kill" system. When the alarm is actived, the starter kill is engages, and won't let the starter get voltage from the ignition switch. First thing I'd try is connecting the car's battery while the ignition key is turned to the "on/run" position. Cycle the alarm to arm, then disarm, so that the LED is not blinking. It also may require using the manual override button/switch (with the key on) to reset the alarm. Should start after that.
If all else fails, reconnecting the starter wires back together (they are spliced and running through the alarm via a SPDT relay.
