the accessory 1 and or 2 wires from alarm brain are most likely loose or not connected at all to the accessory wires on the ignition side... hence the lights and accessories not coming on but engine does...
if you installed it I would recheck those wires... if a shop installed it I would take it back to them...
ususally this happens when the alarm dosent read the door being open, if the alarm dosent read that the door is open you should be grounding out the door trigger (green wire in most alarms) and repeat steps to deactivate the alarm
If your car won't start with the key but, starts with the remote starter; you have an issue with the ignition switch or, the starter wire is cut (like for a starter kill) and the connection is not good on the key side.
You have to turn off your ignition and immediately press that 'eraser like button'(valet switch) for a second and release it. Alarm will then come out of valet mode and your remote should work, if it's good.
if you know where your valet switch is try to turn the ignition on and press the switch 1 time within 10sec and that should disable your security system for now. then to program the remote you turn the ignition on and press the switch once and hold a second time, within a few seconds the siren will beep once then press the lock button on the transmitter and the siren should beep again then let go of the switch and turn key off. If no beep is heard when you push lock then the transmitter is no good
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.
you can find the "brain" by tracing the wire from the LED blinking light to the brain than look for a grey and black wire which is the valet switch. Don't look for a toggle switch either, your looking for a little black button not a silver toggle but a little black button. Depending what vehicle you have also matters, for instance if you have a GM truck look in the side dash fuse panel or look BEHIND the hood latch handle. It's a ***** to find sometime but essential that you know both where it is and what it does and how it works.
