    I am on my 5th remote for the 5900 system. I haven't dropped the remote, exposed it to water or done anything physically damaging. I think they are shorting out. I have know idea what is causing it but I am not going to keep giving DEI money for an poorly made piece of hardware. I have had the same gate remote for my apartment complex for 2 years and never had a problem. I change the battery in the Viper remote every month and a half to two months. The ONLY thing I can come up with is that when I keep my iphone and my keys in the same pocket this is what kills it. Almost as if the phone is giving off some kind of magnetic field that the remote isn't sheilded against. Is this possible?

My viper alarm rpn 479v p x is not working. When i press the unlock or lock button it doesnt work it just beeps. The remote is also flashing rx. Whats wrong?


I got the Problem that my pager-function doen't work. I try it like the Manual saying (*-Button) but the two ways that gives doesn't work.

- Start the Programmmode while Pressing "P" on the Backside.
- Press the "STAR-Button or Panic-Button (Orange Key) on the Sender"
it Beeps 2 Times. (i try it again with 1 beep as reponse again)
i Wait 5 Seconds
it beeps 2 long times

i try the Responder, Activate the System, disarm the System. But the Pager don't change the state or receive any Signal.
The Transmitter is working perfect! No Problems to control the Viper 690XV.

What i do wrong?

Is there any hidden Feature or needable Programming in the Viper 690XV-Brain?

Thanks alot for any helpful Answer :)

Back lighting for my viper 479v remote


you have to go in to the proramming mode of the remote to change this feature. you can access this by holding all 4 buttons on the remote at the same time. (or if you have the P button on the back you can hold it down by itself) you will hear 2 long beeps confirming the programming mode. at this time, you can change the settings by pressing 1 of the 4 buttons., each button will change a different function.

in no order------
1. Beep/vibrate or both
2. page or not to page
3.back light
4. hood, truck, or both

the remote will give 2 long beeps when it exits the programming

Viper 5900 this morning i noticed i couldn't look my doors it has these three squiggly lines at the back of the car what does that mean and what should i do


The 3 squiggly lines are meant to show that the car is running in remote start mode. As far as the door locks not working, that could be caused by a few things.. This unit does have a history of the antenna going bad, and will work sometimes, and not others. I suggest you take it to the place that installed it, and have them check it out..

Trouble getting car to start-"Security" light goes on...


I spoke with a customer service person at Viper, they said that the starter is "skipping", specifically that I need to bring it to whoever installed it (Best Buy, in this case) and have them reprogram the module. This should resolve the issue. When I described the problem, the CS person seemed to know exactly what I was talking about--as though it is rather common--and assured me that the installer(s) will know exactly what it is and how to fix it.
