That's a theft deterrent feature. Sounds like the programming needs adjusted. It's assuming that the car is still armed or perhaps it is? If the car is unarmed it will not shut the vehicle down when the door is opened.

SOURCE: My car alarm is blinking

You need to first look under the drivers side dash area near the hood release/fuse panel area and see if there is a valet switch. The switch will look like a little toggle or a push switch. After you locate it, turn the ignition switch to the on position(dont start it) and flick the valet to the opposite position it is in now. If done correctly in most cases the red system light will stay a constant instead of off or blinking indicating you are in valet mode. Next try to start the engine. If this doesnt work you need to remove the alarm system and repair the ignition switch wiring or replace the electrical portion of the ignition switch. The aftermarket alarm cuts into the ignition switch wires and bypasses the start circuit through the alarm module. When disarmed the alarm completes the circuit and allows the car to start. Good luck hope this helps and please rate this.

SOURCE: Viper remote starter sets off alarm.

Whoever hooked up your system did not hook up the factory alarm disarm and arm wires. Your car thinks it is being stolen as a result of this. You need to get a wire diagram of your car and hook up the proper wires.

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: Replaced the battery in my car need to reset my viper alarm

Alarms are not supposed to shut down the engine while you are driving if it was installed properly. Could be another installed accessory or the car itself has a problem. If it was in anti-hijack mode, you would receive a warning like honking horn. You may have to visit a repair shop and maybe your local Viper dealer to have them take a look. DC

Have you changed the battery recently? My remote has a bad habot of slightly misaligning the cel switches if I don't close it exactly right. For my Chrysler van the sliding door switch is affected that way. All else works, though. I end up opening the remote again and ensuring it snaps shut all the way around with just one compression. If an edge doesn't close it's try again. The good news is it's virtually always the remote at issue and nothing expensive in the vehicle.

Mts mode for preset manual trans auto start function enable,does not allow car to start, instead the park light blinks seven times and give an error tone ... Thank you


There is a sequence necessary to set the Viper every time you exit the vehicle: park the vehicle, put in neutral, place foot on brake, set parking brake,remove foot from brake, remote start vehicle with remote, remove key (vehicle should remain running), exit vehicle and close door, arm the alarm with remote (vehicle should shut down). The system is now set for MTS remote start. Test the system by remote starting the vehicle now (it should remote start at this point). If you open any door after the MTS remote start has been set, you will have to do the programming sequence again.This is a safety feature because something may have changed, i.e. parking brake released when the door was opened. You have to do this sequence each time you park the vehicle if you intend to use the remote start feature.
If this does not work, there may be an issue with the installation, i.e., the door trigger connection. Using dome supervision as a door trigger won't work because during the arming portion of the above mention programming sequence(when the vehicle shuts down), the interior lights will illuminate and the Viper will read it as a door opening. So, actual door trigger wires must be used.
