No it won't reset your alarm system. As part of the bit-writer program, anything you set or change in the alarm menu will remain the same. The only thing that can happen is if you have a DEI 520t back up battery, it may trigger the alarm upon re-connecting. No biggy.

Car does not arm or disarm when door opened alarm goes off


Hi, I love the viper. Mine worked flawlessly for many years until one time my unit would not arm or disarm. Obviously 1st I checked batteries which were good. I took mine to installer and they said I had a remote go bad. He got me new remote and that was it. Sometimes I wonder if somehow I managed to hit a factory reset sequence on my remote. Considering your also having an issue with door contacts as well, I would hope it's not the main unit. My system also had a special override switch in the footwell, if you have one, perhaps you may have switched accidentally. Hope this helps in troubleshooting.

My viper alarm system when armed and disarmed there is no sound from the speaker


Either the system is in valet or, the chirps have been deleted or, the siren is broken.
If the LED is on solid the system is in valet. open the door, press lock, unlock, lock on the remote to remove valet.
Press and hold the lock button. This activates the car finder/panic. The siren should begin to wail. If it does, the siren works. If it doesn't and all you see is the aprking lights flashing the siren is defective.

I have 2004 chev tahoe w/ a viper remote starter system,but no key fob. I replaced the car battery & now the cars computer won't let it start. How do I reset the computer?


The car's computer wont let it start?
Well, if you changed the battery and the viper alarm is the issue; locate the push button valet/programming switch. Turn the ignition on, press and release the switch. The alarm will disarm and you can start the vehicle.
To put the alarm in valet, turn the ignition on then off, within 10 seconds press and release the valet switch. The LED will illuminate solid to show that the system is in valet.

You must put the alarm on a valet mode to see if the alarm is causing this problem
To enter or exit Valet Mode
1. Turn the ignition on
2. Turn the ignition off
3. Press and release the valet switch within 10 seconds
The status Led will light solidly if you are entering valet mode, and it will go out if you are exiting valet mode.
To enter or exit Valet Mode using the transmitter:
1. Open any vehicle door.
2. Press and realese lock and unlock buttons at the same time
3. Press and realese Aux button
4. Press and realese the lock and unlock button at the same time again
The status led will light solidly if you are entering Valet Mode and it will go out if you are exiting Valet Mode
Now when in Valet Mode try to start the engine, if the problem persist the alarm has nothing to do with it

My 350hv just shuts off randomly. I can arm it and come back later and it is off and my doors are unlocked!


Sorry, but it is my opinion that car alarms are really, really foolish.
Cars are extremely hostile environments for delicate electronics.
Adding alarms is begging for problems that will leave you without a car.
If you lock any valuables in the trunk, out of sight, there is no reason for an alarm. All an alarm will do is either fail and prevent you from driving, or fail and get you a ticket for a false alarm.

I have the same problem. The easiest way around it is to disconnect the battery for 10 seconds and reconnect it. This will reset the alarm system, and the remotes will start working again.

Take note of your radio stations as they will reset. :)

Replaced the battery in my car need to reset my viper alarm


Alarms are not supposed to shut down the engine while you are driving if it was installed properly. Could be another installed accessory or the car itself has a problem. If it was in anti-hijack mode, you would receive a warning like honking horn. You may have to visit a repair shop and maybe your local Viper dealer to have them take a look. DC

Battery went dead,clifford alarm locked the engine


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.

first, you need to manuslly disarm the alarm. open driver's door, put key in ignition, turn on ignition, an then within 10 seconds push the valet/program button for a couple of seconds. (it is the little spring loaded push button that they installed with your system. probably in the kick panel or under dash
