Question about Remote Start System

1 Answer

I had my vehicle battery disconnected for about two hours the other day. All was fine until I tried to remote start my car with Viper 5900. It started but immediately shut off. Now cant start with remote or key. It seems like the immobilizer is activated on my truck or something. Its a 2002 Escalade EXT. Alarm functions all work as normal. How can I get my truck started again???

Do you have an anti-theft system on this vehicle? If so, place key in the ignition, turn it to the ON position for exactly 10 minutes. As soon as the anti-theft light turns off, then immediately try and start the suv with the key.

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.

On many of the Viper models, the symptom you are describing is because the remote battery is low. The remote can't be too far from the vehicle. If it is, the system see it as you forgot about the vehicle being remote started, and shuts it back down. A weak battery creates a weak signal and makes the unit 'think' you are far away. The Viper website has instructions on how to disable the whole system, there are many different versions, so find the box and get the model number from it, you will need that to get any further.
