    How do you activate the "Button Auto Lock" feature on the Responder LE 2-way transmitter and how do you use the transmitter once the feature is turned on

    The "Button Auto Lock" feature is used to prevent unintended operation of the system by locking the transmitter buttons and requiring a specific sequence of button activations to unlock the buttons allowing operation of the system.

    Press and hold the "function" button for approximately 10 seconds or until the amber transmit LED lights solid and the transmitter beeps once. Ignore the car number indicator at 3 seconds. Then press and hold the "unlock" button for approximately 1.5 seconds or until the amber transmit LED blinks twice then stays on and the transmitter beeps twice. You are now in the transmitter configuration menu. The "lock" LED will either turn on indicating this feature is already active or stay off indicating the feature is not active. At this point you can press the "lock" button to turn the "Button Auto Lock" feature on, ("lock" LED on) or off, ("lock" LED off). Until the transmitter exits the configuration menu you can continue to press the "lock" button toggling through the on and off settings. When the "Button Auto Lock" feature is on the buttons on the transmitter will automatically lock 60 seconds after the last button push. When the buttons are locked it is necessary to press the "function" button then the "unlock" button to unlock the buttons and operate the system. For a video tutorial, go here:

    This article requires a basic understanding of the installed system. Please contact your local Authorized Directed Dealer or Retailer if you require additional assistance.

Remote starter not working

Check to make sure the remote start kill switch isn't broken. There should be a switch under your driver seat or gas pedal that turns your engine off if someone tries to drive off with your car while you're warming it up. If that switch is damaged, it can trick your remote start system into thinking there's someone in your car, and preventing the system from starting up at all.

I have a Viper 5301. Just recently the blue light on the valet stopped blinking when the car is locked with the remote. It just stays on all of the time, no blink. At the same time, the remote started...

The blue light on solid means that your alarm is in the valet mode. Open any door, press lock, unlock, lock. This should put the alarm back into an active mode. Afterwards, check the system for normal operation.

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.

Getting Viper 5301 to turn on heat fans in 2005 Mruano

Most likely only one of the cars 2 accessory circuits was powered up by the remote start. There definitely are 2 (red and white/blue). Please double check with multi-meter before just hooking up. But that should solve the no fan upon remote start.
