Viper alarm, lights dont flash

Well I bought my 2005 dodge magnum rt about a year ago and when I arm the alarm the lights dont flash. The car still has the factory alarm on it also when I arm it the lights do flash!!!!! Both alarms work 100% The viper door pin switchs all work perfectly with just the viper alarm on!!!! And then when I juust set the factory alarm and open the door it honks like crazy!!!! Everything is working great just NO lights flash when I arm the VIPER!!!!!!!!!! I am very knowledgeable to car audio. Just never messed with a car alarm before... Thanks.........

    Hey I asked you a problem about why my Viper alarm lights dont flash!!! You told me to look in the passenger side kick panel for the purple and white wire!!! Well it was exactly where you said it was. So I thank you very much. But my next problem on the same wire is that the wire is stripped back with the wire exposed, But it is still connected together just stripped back and there its nothing hooked up to it.. there is a power and ground wire there that I sure is coming off of the alarm!!! You can tell its not factory but it looks very clean... I Just hope that you can help me with figuring out that with whaT ITS SUPPOSED TO BE HOOKED UP TOO!!! I see by the diagram you sent me that its a hot wire!!!! I was thinking that maybe it was tied in with the other connector... Because there is a ground one there with two wires going into the same connector!!! The connectors are the ones that you just crimp on the wire with out stripping it or cutting!!! Hope you can help!!!! I sure need it thanks!!!!

Sounds to me like the parking light output wire. They usually have a seperate fuse or the connection is bad. The connection on your vehicle should be behind the pass side kick panel and look for a wire to the white/purple wire and check that with a meter or light to see if it's kick out power. There is a possibility they used the negative trigger through a resister and that would be located behind the headlight switch. That will at least let you know and trace down the problem. Here is a link with that parking light info for yours. Hope this helps and let me know if you have more questions.

2005 Dodge Magnum RT. Left turn signal in rear, flashes fast rear bulb replaced but blinker still blinks fast occassionally and rear turn signal light socket has no voltage when this happens. Where is the...

When its blinking fast look at both front and rear to verify which bulb isnt flashing. If the right works OK, then the flasher is OK. The flasher is INSIDE the front control module/integrated power module. If you cant find the problem, you may need a dealer to check it.

2005 magnum rt stuck in park...whats wrong?

This is a common failure... if you google it, you'll find out you're not alone. There is a weak link in the shifter of your car (mine is the same). It's a cheesy plastic arm that wears out. Dodge's answer is to replace the entire shifter assembly, but no need! There is someone out there with our answer. For 49.99 you can purchase a billet steel machined replacement. I just bought mine and also, at is detailed replacement instructions complete with photos! With medium level mechanical skills you should be able to pull this off.
Our shifter is starting to act up, I researched this and bought the parts so I'll be able to change it out before it completely fails... in the mean time, I'm being easy on it....
Good luck on the swap out...
