Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories

1 Answer

I have a clifford G4 alarm/remote start system installed 12 years ago. since yesterday, the vehicle starts then shuts off. it appears that the module sends a signal to keep the starter engaged after it starts, so then it shuts off a few seconds later. i had this problem a few months ago and tapped the control module and it never happened again. we have below zero weather here in Chicago lately the last few weeks, but no problem....however, this started yesterday. Have not had a chance to tap the module. what do you think?

It sounds like broken or cracked solder joints in the control module, hitting the module causes it to make connection temporarily

The start/stop 3x thing could be one of a few main issues. You need a bypass module or it needs to be reset. You need to program the tach if you're using it. Make sure with the new models(5101, 5301) it's programmed for auto transmission. The come default for manual transmissions.

SOURCE: car won't start, makes clicking sound

If you have a bulldog remote start, you should have it removed right away. I work at best buy, and we will not install these any more because of the problems they cause. You should buy something made by DEI, they cost a little more, but are very well made and come with a lifetime warrenty.

SOURCE: battery went dead,clifford alarm locked the engine

Assuming that all is well with the vehicle's electrical system (fuses, etc...), the following should work, as Viper/Clifford uses the "fail safe" method of starter disable, and it only works to lock out the starter when the alarm is functioning properly and in the armed state.

That system has a "starter kill" system. When the alarm is actived, the starter kill is engages, and won't let the starter get voltage from the ignition switch. First thing I'd try is connecting the car's battery while the ignition key is turned to the "on/run" position. Cycle the alarm to arm, then disarm, so that the LED is not blinking. It also may require using the manual override button/switch (with the key on) to reset the alarm. Should start after that.

If all else fails, reconnecting the starter wires back together (they are spliced and running through the alarm via a SPDT relay.

The service light turned on, security light turned on and my car wont start after I tried to install a alarm system


Aftermarket car alarms/remote start systems are difficult to install in newer cars since many of them already have alarm systems and immobilizers in place. The aftermarket manufacturer will specify additional modules that must be purchased and installed in order to successfully integrate their product into your vehicle without causing conflicts. Some of these modules are expensive and some even require you to have a spare key for the vehicle to install into the module for it to work. Without more details on your vehicle (Manufacturer/year/model) and the alarm manufacturer ( and model), all I can make is generalizations as to what your problem is....

Clifford g5 alarm how do i reset it after i was checking fuses it wont let me start the car


The car won't start because the Clifford alarm has a starter interrupt wire where the start wire runs through the alarm system module/relay. The unit then must still be active for the car not to start. If pressing the disarm/unlock button on your Clifford key FOB does not turn the system off, you will after to do it manually. You will need to locate the manual override button installed somewhere in the car that is connected to the alarm system. Turn the ignition switch to "on" or "run" and within 10 seconds press the manual override switch. That will turn the alarm system off and allow the car to be driven normally. I would then take the vehicle to an authorized Clifford or other DEI (Viper) install shop and have them diagnose your apparent problem.

The bypass module is most likely interfering with the vehicle data causing the OEM security to trigger. Take it to a security/remote start retailer and have the bypass module reprogrammed or replaced.

Ok. You don't tell us what year, make, or model the truck is, but I'm assuming it is a later model. They all come with integrated alarm and immobilizer systems installed. If you did not get an aftermarket adapter to disable the factory alarm system, then if the vehicle is started without the key it will shut off and alarm after 30 seconds. Once you used the key, you satisfied the manufacturers alarm system and then your remote start worked. You need to get a module specifically designed for your vehicle and alarm system to use with the Viper to make it work. They can be a real pain to get working correctly. Good luck!

The alarm may not be going off. Rather it may be a malfunction of the relay that is driving all the sirens and piezo. Next time it happens check for flashing parking lights. They will flash only when alarm is going off. Also ignition input to the alarm prevents this alarm from going off while driving. Panic from the remote can still be triggered. Got to play detective....

You did not mention the year/make/model of your vehicle but, the issue appears to be the factory alarm. The installer failed to make the connection. If you intend to make the connection yourself I would need information pertaining to the vehicle. The (-) pulse before start wire for Prestige remote starters is black with a blue stripe. It is in a 4 pin connector at the module. This wire can be used to disarm the factory alarm before the remote start sequence.
