Question about 5701 VIPER 5701 2-WAY ALARM w/REMOTE START

1 Answer

How do I adjust the sensitivity of my alarm? I can slam the tailgate and it will not go off. Also, I can activate my remote start and it will start and run, BUT, oftentimes when I hit the open door button, the engine will shut off. When I get in, the system will be on and ready to start again (I have a Diesel set for 30 seconds) and it will start again after a few more seconds. Please don't tell me to go back to my Dealer! I probably went back 10-12 times following the initial installation and it became apparent they knew no more about the system than I did!! Ernie South Carolina

To adjust the alarm sensitivity there is a sensor usually on the steering column with a plastic screw that can be turn to adjust the sensitivity. To change the setting you will probably need the manual for the alarm and there is a wire with a small button on that to program settings for alarm sound or remote start start and stop time.

Hello, I have a 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander, when it parked and locked (alarm active) if a car passes the rear of the vehicle the hazards will flash. The alarm does not activate. Could this be a pressu


Any chance you are close to the car when this happens? You could be seeing a security-system interaction. Outlander ES features a standard remote keyless entry system, and all models include a standard anti-theft engine immobilizer and security alarm system. Outlander Special Edition, LS and XLS models add the FAST-Key system that allows the driver to unlock the vehicle simply by having the remote in a pocket or purse and grasping the handle on either of the front doors or the tailgate. The FAST-Key system provides both convenience and security, since the driver does not need to search for a key or remote control while carrying packages, or when in a poorly lit area, for example. The system operates when the driver (carrying the remote unit) is within 27 inches of the front doors or the tailgate. While walking into that range, the system verifies the user i.d. Bioelectrical sensors are built into the door handles, and when the person carrying the remote grasps one of the handles, the door unlocks: grasping the driver's door handled unlocks only that door; grasping the front passenger door handle will unlock all four doors and the tail gate.

My bulldog Model 2010 Alarm is too sensitive and


I got this from their website.

Adjusting the Shock Sensor Sensitivity
To adjust the shock sensor, disarm the system, press and hold Button #3 (Finder) until the alarm chirps four times
(approximately five seconds), immediately release the button. Tap your vehicle’s hood above the alarm at the sensitivity
level you wish. The harder you hit the car the less sensitivity the alarm will be. The alarm will then chirp three
times. The shock sensor is now set at this sensitivity. Any shock that is equal to, or greater than this sensitivity,
will sound the alarm. Set the sensitivity as often as you wish; however, the sensitivity level will remain set until
the battery is disconnected or you reset it. If you do not tap the car it will automatically go to maximum sensitivity.
This setting is only acceptable if the car is parked inside a garage. NOTE: The factory setting on the shock sensor
should be acceptable for most vehicles.
