Question about Viper Security and Remote Start System (basic install included)
I have a Viper alarm/remote start on my car. Out of nowhere my car stopped responding to my remote. When I hit the unlock button on my remote, I can see the picture in the top left corner showing that it is transmitting a signal but nothing is happening to the car. It won't unlock or unarm the alarm, it won't remote start my car either. I was playing with the remote today trying to see if it would work and I hit the black P button on the back, the remote beeped and three squiggly black lines showed up behind the car on the picture. Nothing happened to my car though. I read on here that those squiggly lines indicate that my car is started, but I've never seen them before. When I remote start my car I always saw a puff of smoke out of the exhaust on the remote picture. What is wrong with my remote and how can I get in/start my car?!?
First things first. Check the fuse that powers your alarm system. If that seems to be ok then try the next simple option. Open the hood and disconnect the negative battery cable. Then turn the ignition to the start position for approximately three minutes. This will allow for any remaining energy to dissipate from your system. Now you can reconnect the negative cable. *** Before trying your alarm *** turn the ignition on and off 3 times quickly. Make sure you don't start the vehicle. Now you can exit the vehicle and try your alarm. FYI you can always stop at a nearby Best Buy store for additional assistance. They are usually very helpful. Good luck and best regards, Rico...
