Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories

Open Question

I bought a Viper Alarm for my 97 Silverado and the locks work but not my remote start or alarm. It doesn't crank or start the motor the lights just flash and it acts like it wants to work but doesn't. The avital alarm I had before this one worked just fine so I don't know why this one isn't. I appreciate anyone's help.

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: problem with my viper alarm system on my 98' odyssey

first, you need to manuslly disarm the alarm. open driver's door, put key in ignition, turn on ignition, an then within 10 seconds push the valet/program button for a couple of seconds. (it is the little spring loaded push button that they installed with your system. probably in the kick panel or under dash

SOURCE: cranks but engine doesn't start avital remote start

I beleive it is a pink wire for the ignition. If you can locate where it is connected this is your ignition wire. It may have worked loose under the dash.

SOURCE: Viper alarm, lights dont flash

Sounds to me like the parking light output wire. They usually have a seperate fuse or the connection is bad. The connection on your vehicle should be behind the pass side kick panel and look for a wire to the white/purple wire and check that with a meter or light to see if it's kick out power. There is a possibility they used the negative trigger through a resister and that would be located behind the headlight switch. That will at least let you know and trace down the problem. Here is a link with that parking light info for yours. Hope this helps and let me know if you have more questions.

Crank but no start


If your truck already has a factory alarm you will need to get a pass module installed to bypass the factory alarm.

I have DRL on my car and with the factory alarm remote when you press either the lock or unlock the head lights or the parking lights come on. With my Viper 2 way remote no lights come on when pressin


The Viper alarm (and most other alarms) are designed to be connected to the parking lights.The headlights are not meant to be flashed continuously, as when the alarm is triggered. If you want the headlights to activate with the alarm then, the parking light wire from the Viper needs to be connected to the headlight wire instead. NOT RECOMMENDED.
Although the Viper alarm may or may not have a horn output (you didn't mention the model) ,it can be connected and it can be programmed to sound either when the alarm is triggered or all the time(depending on the model).
By the way, the Driving while Running Lights are seperate from the Sentry Illumination Lights. The Sentry Illumination Lights are designed to illuminate the area in front and around of the vehicle before and after entry. They can be programmed for the time that they will illuminated before and after entry.

If the led is solid blue when the key is out of the ignition that means your in valet mode. Which would disable the alarm, but not the starter.
Simply turn key to IGN position then back to OFF.Push the valet button which is on the antenna next to the led and the led should turn off.Close door on vehicle and lock vehicle.Siren should now chirp.

The buzzing noise and lights blinking 5 times is part of the "Find my Vehicle" feature. This usually happens when/if you press the button too long. It takes a little getting use to, but keep practicing pressing the Remote Start button down for only a second or less... you should be releasing the button almost immediately after you hear it make the confirmation tone (meaning the vehicle has received the signal to start). If this doesn't help out, then you may need to go back and talk to your installer about trouble shooting!

What type of transponder bypass was used? You will need to check with your installer. You will want to know if the data bypass module is coming ON upon remote starting. And NOT coming on during regular starting.

Disable viper alarm


Yes the best way is disarm the alarm and put in a Valet Mode
To activate the Valet Mode do the following:

There is a push button or toggle switch to disable the alarm (to engage the valet mode). Without knowing where this
switch is you won't be able to disconnect the alarm.

1. Put the key in the ignition and turn it to the "on" position.
2. Flip the toggle or hold the push button for at least 5 seconds.
3. The LED. light will stay solid on.
4. Turn the ignition off
5. Release the push button. If you have a toggle leave it alone in step 2

The alarm doesn't chirp and no flash of my headlights anymore. Also the blue light stays on the little receiver/antenna on the windshield wheather it is locked or not. What is the problem?


sounds like the alarm went into valet mode. that's usually what a solid blue light means on most viper alarms. check your owners manual on how to take the alarm out of valet mode. with the 5701 alarm its usually done with the remote. hope this helps
