Question about Viper RCVGC022 Remote Control

1 Answer

Directed Electronics (Viper) Car Security System

I have a Viper Model 5900 security system for a 2004 Tahoe. I purchased a second SST 2-way receiver/antenna at the time of purchase and installation (Christmas present). The second remote has gone into a test cycle and won't exit. It just keeps repeating. It tries to communicate with the control module and fails.

How do I get the remote to return to normal communication. I correctly put in a new battery.

    Sorry it took so long to reply. Pipe broke in the house and it took until today to get it dried out.



    The procedure does work but the remote was defective and replaced.



    Thank you,

    Larry

First of all did you remove a connection from the battery in your car so that the system can reset?
Try that first and at the same time take the batteries out of the remotes for a minute or so and hook back up.

I have 2004 chev tahoe w/ a viper remote starter system,but no key fob. I replaced the car battery & now the cars computer won't let it start. How do I reset the computer?


The car's computer wont let it start?
Well, if you changed the battery and the viper alarm is the issue; locate the push button valet/programming switch. Turn the ignition on, press and release the switch. The alarm will disarm and you can start the vehicle.
To put the alarm in valet, turn the ignition on then off, within 10 seconds press and release the valet switch. The LED will illuminate solid to show that the system is in valet.

Try reprogramming the remote. Open the door, turn ignition on, press and release valet switch one time, then press and hold valet switch while pressing lock button on remote.You should hear a confirmation chirp from the alarm. Release both buttons.Turn off ignition. test.

Viper 5900 this morning i noticed i couldn't look my doors it has these three squiggly lines at the back of the car what does that mean and what should i do


The 3 squiggly lines are meant to show that the car is running in remote start mode. As far as the door locks not working, that could be caused by a few things.. This unit does have a history of the antenna going bad, and will work sometimes, and not others. I suggest you take it to the place that installed it, and have them check it out..

I have a viper 5900 car alarm installed with remote start.


Look under dash for a small black box with wires coming out of it, about 2 or 3 inches rectangular.. there should be one or two screws on it. Look to see if it says which direction to turn for sensitivity. As far as not receiving, you need a new antenna, this is covered under warranty through DEI either bring back to where you purchased or look online and see where the closest dealer is to you...
