Question about Viper Security and Remote Start System (basic install included)
Viper 5901 alarm/remote start on 2006 F-350 Lariat Diesel. Remote will start truck fine but shuts off after about 15secs. Truck will start a couple seconds later and shut off again in about 15secs. Cyle continues....
Also shock sensor does not seem to work at all. I can load/unload ATV in back of truck without setting the alarm off? Any way to adjust the sensitivity?
My 1997 F350 PowerStroke would cycle on and off also.
I found out the problem was my glow plugs heating up also drained my battery. Diesels take a few seconds to start reading 12v or more because of the high demand of heating the glow plugs (wait to start).But the culprit was my giant *** amplifier was also charging up its capacitors,upon start up. So my "Diesel Alternator delay" was extended.I cured the problem by shutting off the Stereo
(which also shuts down the Amp) before turning off the Vechicle.
As long as my stereo is NOT on when I AutoStart my truck there are no problems, even my heater can be on, just not my High Current Drawing Amp.

I need to adjust the time that it waits to start for my glow plugs in my 2001 ford excursion diesel 7.3. I need it to wait another 10 - 12 sec.
