I think you need a bypass control modual for the anti theft system for it to start. I put remote starter on a 97 grand am and wouldn't start without the modual.

From your description, I am 100% certain that it is WIRED INCORRECTLY. Viper has an excellent customer support toll-free call center, and can help you figure out where the wiring went wrong (it does NOT wire the same as your Avital did.) Best of luck to you!

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!

I own a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer, do I have to buy additional parts to have it installed, All I want it to do is remotely start my vehicle and lock and unlock my doors


Yes you will need a module to interface the GM Anti-theft system in your vehicle. It's a fairly simple solution, and should run you around $100. it needs to fool your car into thinking the key is in the ignition when it remote starts, or else the Factory Anti-theft will trigger and not allow your vehicle to start, and trigger the factory alarm.
