Question about 1600XP Security/Remote Start System

Open Question

Hey all! I have absolutely no fuel pressure registering at the fuel track on an 85 Firebird, 2.8 ltr automatic with an aftermarket Python 1600xp alarm system. This may be an out of this world question but I started thinking about an alarm system I had installed in 2004, it is a python 1600xp system and the only item I never had activated on it was the power window feature (obviously because I do not have power windows) I was thinking about when the car died and would not start. When it quit running (my wife was driving it), I remember going outside and I noticed that the car kept trying to start automatically (it has remote start) which was very odd seeing how she had put the key in the ignition, placed it in gear and started driving. I went out to the car tonight and checked on resetting the valet function, when I did that it seemed as though the car wanted to start but still wouldn't. I also noticed tonight that during the entire time that I tried to start the car I heard the fuel pump priming. I had not heard it trying to prime while I have turned the key until I reset the valet feature. Could there be an issue with the alarm system keeping the car from starting? If so, how would I correct that? Thank you for your expertise and patience!

SOURCE: i have a python sst car alarm

usually a combination of 2 buttons so the car doesnt start accidentally.

Depending on the number of output channels - the installer could have installed on any of the channels and that would dictate which buttons to press.

if it is not set on the AUX (output 2) button, then try...

  1. Lock + unlock at the same time - output 3
  2. * + AUX at the same time - output 4
  3. Lock + Aux at the same time - output 5
  4. Lock + * at the same time - output 6
You have not given the model # of the unit - so these are viper's STANDARD remote controm configurations.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: i can't find a valet switch for my python 460hp?

you can find the "brain" by tracing the wire from the LED blinking light to the brain than look for a grey and black wire which is the valet switch. Don't look for a toggle switch either, your looking for a little black button not a silver toggle but a little black button. Depending what vehicle you have also matters, for instance if you have a GM truck look in the side dash fuse panel or look BEHIND the hood latch handle. It's a ***** to find sometime but essential that you know both where it is and what it does and how it works.

SOURCE: one of my remotes will no longer operate my Python

This is a common problem on these and the equivalent viper models. We sent all our units back to viper and they have now re-released the units. We had installed these units into customers vehicles and about 50% had the same issue your having. Even after they were reprogrammed, many returned with the problem again. My advice is to contact python and have the unit replaced.

The vehicle starts but runs only for about 1 minute, then it goes off

you need to re-program your factory alarm bypass module. if you haven't used on then you will need to find out which one you need for the vehicle and install it. Check the Viper/DEI Website for details.

If your module is in, check the Can Hi and Low connections to be sure they are to the correct wires.
