SOURCE: car starter not working

look under the dash for a small silver toggle switch....this is a disable switch for the remote start portion of the system..you may have kicked it / bumped it with your foot, causing the remote start portion to be deactivated. Just flip the switch the opposite way and try again..
Also, there may have been a pin style switch installed under the hood...Check to see if it is bent or broken, if it is, simply disconnect it and insulate the wire that was going to it. 
This wire is used as a safety to keep the vehicle from remote starting while the hood is up..to keep people from being injured if the remote start is activated while the engine is being worked on. 
Have whatever shop installed the system replace your pinswitch if that is the problem.

SOURCE: remote has red light flashing and beeping?

i have this alarm also.... for starters your batteries are dead, so get those when you get a chance. (best buy or radio shack) for now you can manually over ride your alarm... what you when need to do is get into your car by using the key, and the alarm is going to go off


1. locate your antenna, which is going to have your blue LED and a square push button. usually at the top of your windshield

2. while the alarm is going off, you will need to put the key in the ignition and turn to the on position, ofcourse it isn't going to crank.

3. within 5 sec of turning the key on, you will need to push the valet button( button on the antenna next to the blue LED) 1 time, release, then push it a 2nd time but hold it down until the alarm shuts off, this will allow you to start the car with the key. if it doesn't work the first time, turn the key off and try it again

the default is 1 press, the pushing it one more time and holding, but it can be programmed by whoever installed to be 1-5. hints, pressing it 2X the holding on the 3, or 3X then holding on the 4 ect

SOURCE: Hello. My Viper 5701 suddenly

You should also be receiving an error message. If the parking lights flash six times, it relates to the hood shutdown wire(-) or the brake shutdown wire(+). If the parking lights flash seven times, it relates to the neutral safety shutdown. Check the toggle switch under the dash and flip it to the opposite position.

This may sound funny but my mom has a brand new Lincoln MKZ and was having the same problem with her remote starter. What I did was, I pushed the lock button on the remote and then pushed the start button and it started . Even though the car was already locked for some strange reason she has to push both if she wants to start it remotely . I'm not sure why this happens and not sure if it will work with your remote but its worth a shot. Good Luck

I installed a bulldog remote starter with keyless entry and the doors won't unlock or lock with remote, why?


Were the lock and unlock wires connected to the system?
Lock: Gray/White (-) @ 40 PIN CONN OF BCM PIN 27
Unlock: Gray/Red (-) @ 40 PIN CONN OF BCM PIN 26

Do you have a Smartpass key or a regular key? What bypass are you using for the remote start system?

The blue light on solid means that your alarm is in the valet mode. Open any door, press lock, unlock, lock. This should put the alarm back into an active mode. Afterwards, check the system for normal operation.

I purchased and programmed a new remote to my 5701 starter.security system. the lock and unlock functions work byt i just get a loud beep, flashing red light on the remote and my headlights blink 7 times


The seven flashes from your parking lights is the remote starter error diagnostic. Seven flashes is the message for neutral safety wire. The toggle switch under the dash is in the off position or, if the small, thin black with white wire is not connected to ground.

LED lights for locking and unlocking flash at the same


that system is part of D.A.S. 2( driver authorization system verson 2). the lights in the mirror will blink red when lock and green when unlock. during the self diagnoses portion they will blink simutanilusly when the remote key batteries are low and alternating when there is a malfunction with the key or other part of the driver authorization. it sounds like your remote key central locking batteries are low.
