Are your brake lights functioning properly? remote starts sometimes use this as a fail safe, or a bent hood pin switch? Also It may need the tach reprogrammed if used. there may be a seperate fuse for the starter.
here is the link to the installation manual: http://www.directeddealers.com/manuals/ig/viper/n4102v_2008_09_web.pdf
and the page regarding this issue: • The remote start will activate, but the starter never engages.
1. Check for voltage on the purple starter wire two seconds after the remote
start becomes active. If there is voltage present, skip to Step 4. If there is
not voltage present, advance to Step 2.
2. Check the 30A fuses.
3. If the gray/black wait-to-start wire is detecting ground upon activation, the
starter will not crank.
4. Make sure the purple starter wire is connected on the starter side of the
optional starter kill/anti-grind relay.
5. Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? Some immobilizer systems will not
allow the vehicle to crank if active.
6. Check connections. The heavy gauge remote start input wires on the
heavy gauge 10-pin connector should have a solid connection. "T-taps"
or "scotch locks" are not recommended for any high current heavy gauge
wiring.
good luck.

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.

SOURCE: my viper remote starter cranks engine but car

Did you connect the tach wire of the unit to your car? if not you need to refer to your documentation to turn on or off the tachless operation for the unit to work correctly.

did it ever work before?

A couple things here. It is best to have a "tach wire" and the system needs to be programmed to learn the tach signal in order to know if the car is running or high reving or dead. If it gets no signal of the sort the next option is voltage monitor, it monitors the voltage for an increase to show that the alternator is running. Either way that signal is not gettting to the viper brain or it has not learned that signal. You need an install manual, did you install the alarm?

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.

SOURCE: My viper remote worked perfect,

The issue is not with the remote as you have stated the vehicle attempts to start. The issue may be with an immobilizer bypass module but, I can't say for sure because you mention the year/make/model of the vehicle. Usually the vehicle will give you visual reason for the failed attempt( the lights will flash a set number of times). But, in any event, the issue is not with the remote and more information is required to assist you.

I got the Viper 5101 remote start installed in my 2007 Hyundai Sante Fe at best buy. The remote works for auto start, but will only lock and unlock the doors sometimes. It seems like if I unlock or lock...


I would take it back and tell them they need to fix it. it sounds like a wire for the lock/unlock may of fallen off or there is a problem with the remote stare module. wires tend to fall off if all the used were crimp connectors and didn't solder the wires together.

Viper remote start system just installed. When I use the remote to lock the car--there is no longer a chirp noise that confirms I hit the lock key. Thanks, Mary


I don't know which remote starter you have, but I have a Viper 5101. To fix this problem, I started the ignition, then turned it off, leaving the key in the ignition. I pushed the Valet button (it has a blinking blue light, mine is near my rear view mirror) and held it. Then, I pushed it 3 times, then held it down a 4th time. Then, I pressed the lock button once. I pushed the Valet button again to take it out of programming mode, and it worked! I got this sequence of steps from the installation manual online: http://www.scribd.com/doc/45065156/Installation-Viper-5101 Hope that helps!
