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.

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

your remote starter is in valet mode, the door lock will still work but no remote start, try pressing the trunk button 3 times, if that doesn't work turn the ignition switch on and off 5 times

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.
