Not 100 percent sure, but sounds like the neutral switch connection is not working properly. Python can and is used on lots of standard vehichles, but they tie into the nuetral switch on the transmission. If this switch or the wires are corroded or loose, this is the problem that usually shoes up. Hope this helps

SOURCE: i have a python sst car alarm

usually a combination of 2 buttons so the car doesnt start accidentally.

Depending on the number of output channels - the installer could have installed on any of the channels and that would dictate which buttons to press.

if it is not set on the AUX (output 2) button, then try...

  1. Lock + unlock at the same time - output 3
  2. * + AUX at the same time - output 4
  3. Lock + Aux at the same time - output 5
  4. Lock + * at the same time - output 6
You have not given the model # of the unit - so these are viper's STANDARD remote controm configurations.

CLICK HERE to enter your correct model # and Download your instruction manual.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Viper 5101 Manual Transmission - can't start

First off, is it in neutral? It can't engage the starter motor if it's in gear. Secondly, If it was professionally installed, why not just take it back and demand that they fix it?

Your wiring should somewhat match this.

I'm trying to install a Python 991 Remote Start / Car Alarm in an automatic 2000 Subaru Impreza and I have all the wires set up. I know the Control center is supposed to be switch from manual to automatic...

It is not the "control center" that needs to be switched. The unit itself must be programmed for automatic transmission. The antenna (control center) must be connected to the module for normal operation. Merely connecting the two does not initiate a reaction from the LED. You MUST enter the programming mode (ignition on , ignition off, press and hold programming button until you hear three chirps from the siren). The three chirps are remote starter programming options. After you hear the three chirps, press and release the programming button once then, press and hold the button (you will hear one confirmation chirp), now press and release the lock button on the remote (you should hear two chirps from the system). The unit is now programmed for automatic transmission.
There are several other programming options for your particular vehicle (not mentioned) that may be NECESSARY for the proper operation.

Make sure the unit is programmed to automatic transmission (if this is a automatic transmission vehicle). Make sure the switch is actually in the on position and not off (mislabeled). Check the hood shutdown pin switch and make sure that it is making contact with the hood when closed. Check the connection for the black/white wire.

It sounds like the factory alarm is setting up. To make sure the factory alarm does not come on you should make sure all doors are closed before you actually hit the remote to lock the doors. Do not lock the doors with the switch on the door. Make sure you use the Python remote only and all doors closed before you press the lock button.

I need to pair my remote for my python 991

Couple of times when you replace the remote battery, you might have them not working/ responding but just follow the procedure below.

Stand close to the car, hold down the open and close knobs for about 10 seconds. Press them at the same time for 3 seconds; then press the open button as the car opens.

The above procedure is applicable to a lot of car brands. It does not matter how many knobs you might have on the remote fob.

Good luck and Rate this.
