My Viper 5900 wont start. I wanted to know if a relay was needed for a 98 ford mustang and if there was one available that did not require a second key?

Ok lets check basics first
do you have lights on and power to head lights this is a plus if you do
if you dont its either dead cell in battery or bad alternator that wont charge battery

ok did you try a manuel start tool too starter or old fashion way jack car up and apply long screw driver between power cord and ground on starter this is also a manual start if car turns over its not a relay

look at your key has it been worn down or is it brand new these are indicators of old key cylinder wear
i had to replace my key cylinder the first day when i bought my truck they made me new key but cylinder was wore out i had several problems with other vehicles in this manner
if you made a new key cause old key was bad that doesnt change the fact that key cylinders wear out too

the relay panel is under the hood on fords now heres a suggestion to test them find similar relay in panel box pull out and place in bad relays place
this can tell you if the relay is truley the culprit but remeber when you change it put the other back in the spot you took out
cars come with average of 6 to 8 exact relays for different components of vehicle but they are the same in the panel

did you install a new car sterio system in the vehicle if you did you probably got the wires crossed or not in right place on wireing up radio fords tend to run a couple components threw sterio wires under my profile here i speak of proper wire harness and wire connections this is crucial

this is basics without computer diagnoses its the most info i can give you at this time

Wiring for ford f150


Nor sure what the question is. You want a wiring diagram for a ford f150? If this the case you going to have a problem. Best solution I can give you is either a Haynes or chilton repair manual specific to your ford year. You can also go the dealer and request that they order you a technicians repair manual but these are expensive , it will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about your vehicle though. If you are asking for a wiring diagram to install a remote starter of some sort, I would seriously suggest you take it to someplace that does this all the time and let them do it. While the do-it yourselves people could do it, it will be an all day project verses the two - three hours it will take at a reputable place. Hope this helps

My Viper alarm for my Ford Ranger has been disconnected


Yes the viper alarm needs to be serviced to prevent false alarms. Go to the nearest Ford Dealership. You could ruin the system permanently if you mess with it yourself

GOOD LUCK.

Viper 771 Remote start/Alarm


the viper alarm is malfunctioning , it is supposed to bypass the key ignition and or chip in the key to allow it to start , you will need to look for a reset button( under the dash and just two wires going to the button)( stuffed under the dash ) ( not the switch) , this should let you start it but if the alarm components that control that bypass is to far gone then this will not help and the alarm will need repair , replaced or removed

Viper 4806v won't program I am trying to install a viper 4806v two-way remote start/keyless entry in my automatic 2004 toyota camry LE 4cyl. I got the lock/unlock, horn, lights to work, and trunk pop to work. I can't seem to get the remote start to work. When I press the remote start button on the remote keypad, the car does not start and the headlights flash 7 times. Troubleshooting says 7 flashes mean a manual transmission mode error. This means I have to enter programming menu 3 and change the starter to automatic mode. When I follow the directions to get to menu 3, nothing happens because I cannot get to menu 3 when I hold down the control button after turning the ignition off. In other words, the control button is not working. The neutral switch is on like it is supposed to be. Kind of bummed about this. Could use some guidance. My wiring goes accordingly and this car does not have an immobilizer because I used a regular metal key to start it. This car has no alarm, just a stock keyless entry, trunk release, and panic button. Again, the problem is :The remote start comes in default manual transmission mode so I have to switch it to automatic transmission mode but I can't seem to enter programming. When I try to enter programming with the procedure followed using the control button, nothing happens. It does not chirp and the LED does not blink. I also cannot enter valet mode using the control button. When the car is locked, the LED blinks and stop blinking if car is unlocked ignition is turned on. I do not understand what is going on.
