Where the **** is the Viper valet button?

Consider how the switch will be used before choosing a mounting location. Check for rear clearance before drilling a 9/32-inch hole and mounting the switch.The GRAY wire in the two-pin plug may also be used as a (+) ghost switch input and can be connected to any (+) switch in the vehicle. (See Feature Descriptions section of this guide.)

This is from the installation manual for the Viper 300. To answer your question, it is probably camoflaged. They only needed to tie +12vdc to the input line. What does this mean? Well, my best guess is, they are using one of your switches on your dash to act as the Valet function. Look for where the Gray wire, from the wiring harness of the Viper goes to: that WILL BE your hidden Valet switch. Best of luck!

What is an open zone and how do I fix it

an open zone is a detection zone that has a broken or loose wire in which the end of line resistor is not being seen from the panel.

each zone wire loop is constantly monitored using a resistor at the very end. this resistor is a specific value and is usually different for each brand of system. the resistor is either attached to the 2 wires at the end, or more commonly installed at the last device on that loop - again across the 2 wires.

as long as the panel can "see" the resistor there, the zone is normal.

if the 2 wires are shorted together, the zone is in alarm.

if either of the wires are broken, the zone goes into an "open" condition, meaning the circuit is open and the resistor can no longer be "seen".

fixing the open circuit involves using an ohm meter to read the resistance of the wiring and tracing the wiring from one end to the other to find the "broken" wire or loose connection.

it is not an incredibly hard process, but does take some skill. if you are not handy with an electrical meter, calling someone who is would be your best bet.

Where does the black wire on the valet switch for a older model viper 300 12p pin ongl with gray valet wire

Hello Jesse,
I am not sure what kind of a valet switch that you currently have for replacement, however all viper systems use a two wire connector, with one gray wire and one black wire and a blue connector on the end. All this does when you hit the switch is series, or connect the two wires. The brain reads the number of pulses that is receiving the specified timeframe and then completes the command based on the set number of pulses. This connector is a separate 2 pin connector from the 12 pin main harness. This will be located when looking at the 12 pin harness on the right side of the brain.

I need installation guide for Viper 5000

Identify the primary wiring harness--it will have 12 wires, labeled as H1/1 through H1/12. The colors of the wires are red/white, red, brown, yellow, black, violet, blue, green, black/white, white/blue, white and orange. Locate this harness and get ready to wire it into your car's electrical system.

Locate the H1/1 wire on the primary wiring harness. This is the red-and-white wire. Connect the wire to the trunk release button on your automobile. You should be able to loosen a screw on the backside of the trunk release button, allowing you to insert the wire along with the original trunk release wire, before tightening the screw back down. This allows your Viper 5000 car alarm remote to open the trunk of your car.

Find the H1/2 wire, which is colored red. This wire is the primary input for the Viper 5000 car alarm. Remove the fuse from the wire before connecting. There are two options for where to connect the red wire. You can connect the wire directly to the positive power terminal on your car battery, or you can open the car ignition and splice the wire into the wire that supplies 12V power to the ignition. To do this, use your wire strippers to remove a small amount of insulation from the ignition wire. Splice in the red wire from the Viper 5000 and then wrap the connection with electrical tape.

Connect the brown wire on the Viper 5000 car alarm, identified as H1/3. Connect the brown wire directly to the red wire on the Avenger siren and mount the siren under the hood of your car. Connect the black wire of the siren directly to a metal section on the car body. The brown wire supplies power to the siren whenever the alarm determine it is needed. The siren's black wire serves as a ground for the current.

Take the yellow H1/4 wire on the primary wiring harness of your Viper 5000 car alarm. Connect the yellow wire directly to the positive (+) 12V ignition wire. If you chose to connect the red H1/2 wire to the ignition, you can connect this one at the same time. It is important for the yellow wire to have a full 12 volts of electricity when the car's key is turned to the on position. Check the 12V ignition wire carefully to make sure there are no nicks, cuts or other problems that could cause the current to short.

Prepare to install the ground for the Viper 5000 car alarm by looking under the hood or body of the car for a bolt. Find a factory-installed boat that does not have any other ground wires leading to it. Remove the bolt from the bolt hole. If there is any paint on the metal around the bolt hole, scrape it off with a razor blade. Find the black H1/5 cable on the wiring harness and place the ring terminal at the end of the wire onto the bolt. Then place the bolt back into its original position. The alarm system is now grounded to the car chassis.

Set up the door trigger input. Find the violet-colored wire labeled H1/6 and connect it to any existing wiring that has an active 12V circuit whenever the doors are open. The wires for the dome lights are often the best place for this connection. Carefully strip a small amount of insulation from the dome light wire and from the tip of the violet wire. Wrap the copper of the violet wire tightly around the copper of the dome light wire, then seal the two together with electrical tape.

Find the blue wire marked H1/7. Connect this wire to sensor pins in either the hood or the trunk of your car. This allows the Viper 5000 car alarm to detect if someone is trying to break into these areas, and to instantly sound the alarm to announce the presence of an intruder. Simply use a screwdriver to attach the blue wires to a standard sensor pin.

Connect the negative door trigger input to the Viper 5000 car alarm. This is the green wire identified as H1/8. Similar to how the door trigger input (H1/6) was connected to the wire running from the 12V power source to the dome lights, the negative door trigger will be used on the opposite side of that circuit. The negative current typically passes into the wire that runs from the dome light back to the door switch. Splice the door trigger input (H1/8) into this wire at any point between the door switch and the light.

Establish a connection with the high current output from the dome light supervision relay. Identify the black and white wire labeled as H1/9. Plug the end of this wire directly into the circuit for the vehicle dome light. Expose the dome light circuit by opening the light compartment, the same as you would when changing bulbs. Once the circuit is visible, locate the plug port and plug the black and white wire from your Viper 5000 car alarm directly into the port.

Skip the white-and-blue wire labeled H1/10. This wire is used as a Channel 3 output and is not needed unless you install extra devices that require it. For the time being, just make sure there is no exposed copper at the end of the wire and push it out of the way. If there is copper exposed on the wire, wrap it with electrical tape so that it will be insulated and protected.
Hook up the output signal to make the parking lights flash. Use the white H1/11 wire for this purpose. Remove a small section of insulation from the end of the white wire using a pair of wire strippers. Also remove a small amount of insulation from the wire that connects the parking light relay switch to the parking light bulb relay. Be careful not to cut all the way through the wire. Twist the wires together so that the white wire is connected to the light relay wire, then seal the connection with electrical tape.

Ground the Viper 5000 car alarm when armed using the orange wire marked H1/12. Find a factory bolt on the body of your automobile that does not have any other components already using it for a ground. Under the hood or under the body of the vehicle are ideal places to locate these bolts. Scrape away any paint that may be under the bolt head and use the bolt to fasten the metal ring at the end of the orange wire to the body of the car. Your Viper alarm is now grounded to the vehicle whenever it is armed.
Test your alarm system. Your Viper 5000 should now be able to unlock your doors, light the inside of the car and prevent theft of your vehicle. Test the features of the Viper 5000 car alarm to make sure that all components are working to your satisfaction.

Looking for replacement end of line resistor or capacitor

Your panel requires 4.7K ohm resistors for both initiating and notification circuits. These are common can be found at Radio Shack or a similar store. Resistors of other values can be used and may "fool" the panel, but also may result in undesirable operation.

The problem is that a CD has a stereo signal and the Marshall is mono.

You could make a simple mixer cable with resistors as a completed cable is not something you will find easily.

Take three 1K resistors joined at one end and connect the open ends of those one each to the three terminals of a stereo plug that fits you CD player.

Connect a mono plug and cable with "hot" to the joined connection of those resistors. Connect the ground shield of that cable to the barrel connection of the stereo plug that one of the resistros is also connected.

NOTE: if you use the "line" output of the CD player, then use 10K ohm resistors instead of 1K.

Viper 690XV Installing with INT-SL Data interface module

The number 2 pin on my cars OBD II is the data carrier which is then connected to the purple wire of the INT-SL Data Interface Module.
Data Interface Modules are becoming the standard for alarms and remote starter installations. These modules will make installations 75% faster and more accurate. I also recommend using Posi Taps to tap into your OBD II.
This a safe and 100% effective reversible method of connecting wires without crimping, cutting, or soldering. If you have any questions feel free to drop me a line or simply Google: "Posi Taps" by posi products. For Interface modules Google: "INT-SL". Good luck with your next installation. And remember the has endless resources providing you take time out to research them.
By the way my Viper install was a sucess.
