Does the car ever start. You're not clear on that point. Most remote start systems will try 3 times to start. If engine does not start after 3 times, it cancels. In your car, if remote start works after engine has been run a while, (you go to store, come out and remote start), but only cranks but won't start when cold, (first thing in the morning), then most likely the second starter wire was not hooked up. If it was connected, there may be an issue with "tach learning" or the pin switch under the hood, if one was installed.
Just need more info to be of more help.

It sounds like a problem in the remote start module that was installed. I assume it has not always done this. See what type of warrenty you have on it. Probably none but sometimes suprises happen.

If your vehicle has daytime running lights they will be on when remote started no real way around that try leaving your parking brake on.
The new vipers default setting is constant rather than flashing.

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.

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.

I am trying to locate this manual for you, did you install the alarm yourself? Most places that install them will reconfigure them for free if you ever have a problem even if it's years later. The new fuel pump is not configured with the alarm properly... Do you know was it the exact same model fuel pump they put in? Or a third party fuel pump....

Camry 2002 Remote Starter Conflicts Car Starter


You need to call Viper and talk to their tech support. It sounds like the viper is actually disabling the starter. If you have all of your paperwork from the alarm system there should be a book that can help walk you through the reprogramming mode. Maybe your key fob is not synced to the alarm system. I have a clifford alarm which is still a viper. I have to press the star button 3 times in a row if I want my car to start remotely. hope this helps some.

I have a Viper 5301 LE 2 way remote starter system installed in a manual transmission. When I set my starter everything seems to be functioning normally. Once I get out of the car and hit the lock button...


It sounds like the turbo timer mode is active. In this procedure, the MTS remote starter is active, it's just that once set (after locking the vehicle) the vehicle will run the preset time(1,3,5 or 10 minutes) before shutting down. The MTS remote starter feature should still operate with the turbo timer mode.

Remotes won't program! Installed Viper 5001 on my 2007 Kia Sorento. Triple checked wiring..all is good. Remotes won't program...no power to main unit. Yet, tested main unit and it has power. Any...


There are two constant 12 volt wires at the ignition on this vehicle: blue and green. The red power (with fuses) wires from the Viper should be connected to either of the two. The ignition wire is yellow. The pink wire from the Viper should be connected there. The accessories are orange and white. The pink with white from the Viper should connected to one and the orange from the Viper should be connected to the other. Please note that the Pink with white should be programmed to act as an accessory (off during crank). The starter wire is red and the purple from the Viper should be connected there. Also check for a good ground connection.

For programming:
Press and hold "f" until LED lights solid (approximately 10 seconds), then press and hold remote starter button(circle w/arrow) until LED blinks three times and the amber transmit LED lights up.
Now you have to enter the remote control learn routine: Turn ignition on, within ten seconds press and release control button on antenna then, press and hold control button while pressing the lock button on remote. System will respond (horn/chirp/flashing parking lights) when holding control button and when pressing lock button on remote.

You have to turn off your ignition and immediately press that 'eraser like button'(valet switch) for a second and release it. Alarm will then come out of valet mode and your remote should work, if it's good.
