Best buy will install viper car alarms, but I would strongly advise against getting any work performed by their techs. I had one installed on my truck and aside from not working properly, the cruise control, heater control unit, power windows, sunroof, and gauge cluster have stopped working. All that on top of intermittent stalling on the interstate. So far the repair estimate from a Toyota dealer is nearing $2000.
While this may be an isolated incident, Best buy will certainly not get any more of my money.

DO NOT LET BEST BUY TOUCH NOTHING!!!!!!!!! Go to a local car audio shop someone who does it daily best buy had my stuff on my alarm all mest up ,, and not everything i bought with the alarm worked until i took it to a shop to fix which cost me more then it did in the first place. BEST BUY has good stuff but alot of times they let just about anyone install **** .

    I happen to be a Best Buy installer. I have been in the car audio industry professionally since 1988 and have been installing at Best Buy in Kansas for over 17 years. I am also MECP Master certified, one of less than 150 Masters in the entire country. When getting ANYTHING installed, whether in your car, in your home, etc., it is always a good idea to check out who is doing your work. If you hear bad things or don't feel comfortable, try somewhere else. Best Buy has great installers, but some may not be so. In my shop, I have the most tenure, but the person that has been here the least amount of time has been installing for over 7 years! While this may not be the norm, with a little patience and diligence, you can find great shops with great installers. Sorry about your negative experiences, though...

Do NOT let Best Buy install anything on your car!!!

I was also told, at the Dearborn Best buy store that there installer was a 'master' blah blah and there were less than (100?) in the world. Lol.
I had a bluetooth device for my stereo and a RADAR detector installed.

I had to spend several hundred dollars having the 'installation' fixed after Best Buy got finished. My car also stopped running, as the electronic start was affected.

I think I may have triggered an anti theft kill switch on my 03 expedition 5.4. It has a viper alarm, but I found a spare and activated the door code and now it won't start. Everything else comes on.

Need to program rpn471t but I don't have a valet button in the car


Hello Lacey,
The only way to program an additionally remote on one of there systems is with a valet button. I would recomend that you contact a local install shop like Best Buy that works with DEI products. They likley will be able to program the remote for you.

My viper 5002 alarm i don't know witch wire's to use off the viper alarm's for the power lock's


The door lock wires for the Viper alarm are green (-)lock and blue (-) unlock. The Viper system only provides a negative lock/unlock pulse for the door locks. So, if you are working on a vehicle that has positive door locks you will have to install relays to change the polarity.

Installed. Arm the car locked. About 2-3 hours


You must change the doors trigger connection if you have a negative input change it to positive input or vise versa and try. I’m sure that this is going to end your problems or the smart way is, take it back to Best Buy

Van won't start after thunderstorm set off viper alarm system


Not saying this is your solution. I would do the simple thing first. Disconnect the battery for 5 to 10 minutes and see if it allows the alarm to reset. If not call your local car alarm installer. Maybe Best Buy. These companies will more than likely help you out

VIPER 5701 GOES OFF ON ITS OWN


this is a EASY FIX.... if the car has a factory alarm installed, then the installer never connected the OEM disarm wire. its a LIGHT GREEN/BLACK wire connected to the H2 harness. just have them connect that and youre problem will go away .
