Question about 791XV The 791XV is a 2-way Security and Remote Start system. Th

2 Answers

VIPER 791xv. I lost the keys and remote. I just got new keys cut and bought a replacement remote. I have read through the installation and owners manual and am still a bit confused on programming the new remote to the alarm. The installation guide says to press the valet button the number of times relating to the channel desired to set. I pressed it once as that is the channel for auto/standard button configuration for the remote. the light is supposed to blink the amount of times that you press the button. It blinks five time as I am only pressing it once. Is this because the alarm is activated? Also, I do have the siren wire cut so I do not have to deal with the sound, but I can still here the relay clicking. Thats how I know the alarm is still armed. So, can I not program the remote because the alarm is active? If so, how do I deactivate the alarm to program the remote to it?

    Are you familiar with this system. I have learned that the Viper 791xv is the same system as the Clifford RSX 3.5. Anyhow, I bought the car with the alarm already installed. The guy I bought it from does not know anything about the system. By disconnecting it, do you mean bypassing the hotline (positive) to the alarm?

    Is there a way to disarm the Viper 791xv without unhooking wires?

To my knowledge you need to completely disconnect the alarm from the car's power to completely de-activate it. These viper systems are real buggers when it comes to turning them off and reprogramming them. Did you have it installed by a place there locally, if so they should be able to help you get this accomplished.

Please let me know, I am researching this for you but it is not easy by any means..

    Yes that is exactly what I mean... and yes I am very familiar with the model... not sure about it being the same as the Cliford model mentioned but that wouldn't surprise me in the least.
