    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?

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 :)

Try reprogramming the remote. Open the door, turn ignition on, press and release valet switch one time, then press and hold valet switch while pressing lock button on remote.You should hear a confirmation chirp from the alarm. Release both buttons.Turn off ignition. test.

I have a jeep with a viper 5900 installed when


small box under or around steering column. may have to remove panel under steering column or get lucky and may find it if you lay on your back on floor of driver area. look up underneath for a box 2" x 2" x 1" black box with an l.e.d. light on it. arm the vehicle and bang on steering wheel and look for the led light to light up and set off alarm. light will be red or green and will only light up during vibration.
find adjustment screw on it and turn counterclockwise.

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..

Viper won't remote start and arm/disarm only works sometimes


Greetings Microluv,

Simple question, have you changed the battery in your remote lately? I was having similiar issues with my remote start and it was a simple matter of changing the batteries in the remote.

I figured lets eliminate the easy stuff first. :)

98 Ford Mustang Viper 5900


ok lets check basics first
do you have lights on and power to head lights this is a plus if you do
if you dont its either dead cell in battery or bad alternator that wont charge battery

ok did you try a manuel start tool too starter or old fashion way jack car up and apply long screw driver between power cord and ground on starter this is also a manual start if car turns over its not a relay

look at your key has it been worn down or is it brand new these are indicators of old key cylinder wear
i had to replace my key cylinder the first day when i bought my truck they made me new key but cylinder was wore out i had several problems with other vehicles in this manner
if you made a new key cause old key was bad that doesnt change the fact that key cylinders wear out too

the relay panel is under the hood on fords now heres a suggestion to test them find similar relay in panel box pull out and place in bad relays place
this can tell you if the relay is truley the culprit but remeber when you change it put the other back in the spot you took out
cars come with average of 6 to 8 exact relays for different components of vehicle but they are the same in the panel

did you install a new car sterio system in the vehicle if you did you probably got the wires crossed or not in right place on wireing up radio fords tend to run a couple components threw sterio wires under my profile here i speak of proper wire harness and wire connections this is crucial

this is basics without computer diagnoses its the most info i can give you at this time
