It sounds as if your vehicle's factory alarm is not disarming before the remote start sequence. You will have to disarm the factory alarm before start. On most vehicles there is a disarm wire, usually in the door that operates with the key cylinder. To test, probe the wire at the key cylinder while unlocking the door with the key. Some vehicles have the disarm wire in the driver's kick panel, but they operate the same way (with the key cylinder). Other vehicles can be disarmed with pulsing the key sense wire. Some vehicles do not have a factory alarm disarm wire,i.e. some Subaru and GM cars and trucks. They can only be disarmed through data modules. More information on the year/make/model of your vehicle will be needed to accurately solve your problem.

    I am having the same problem, I drive a 2001 Acura CL Type S which recently 2 days ago had a Viper 4704v Remote Car Starter installed. I've noticed that after a certain period of time the car initially arms itself and when I attempt to start the car the factory alarm goes off however if I unlock the car and then lock it and start it nothing happens except the car starts normal. Any idea what the issue may be and what is an option?

    Your installer should have hooked the factory alarm disarm wire to the unlock wire because the factory alarm arm and lock wires and, the factory alarm disarm and lock wires are the same. So what will happen is when your remote start the vehicle the doors will unlock, disarming the alarm then lock backduring crank. The installer can use the secondary 200ma ground output starter (purple) wire to pulse the lock wire during crank to relock the doors

If this is the factory alarm going off when you remote start the vehicle, the factory disarm wire is not connected. If you would list the year/make/model of the vehicle, I could direct you to the wire.

Maybe the installer did not hook up the remote starter unit to disarm the factory security system upon entry or remote-starting. Ask the installer to double check that part of the install as it would cause the factory security to trigger even though you unlocked the vehicle with the remote start unit remote.

Why does the alarm in my car go off when I try to start it with the remote car starter?


If this is the vehicle's factory alarm that is being triggered then your factory alarm must be disarmed prior to the remote starter sequence. The Autopage unit has a factory disarm wire available for this purpose. When the alarm triggers again try turning the key in the driver's door to see if there is a factory disarm wire available in the vehicle or if the factory alarm is RF disarm only. If it is the after market alarm that is being triggered then you made need to decrease the sensitivity.

Have a mazda 6 GS 2010. When I use the starter in the street, I have no problem. When I park in my drive-way and use the starter, it rings. Why?


I cannot tell you why the factory alarm is triggering at one place and not the other but I can tell you that the remote starter is not disarming the factory alarm.
In order to disarm the factory alarm, the remote starter must supply a ground pulse to the disarm wire at the body control module (BCM). The BCM is located in the driver side kick panel and the wire is black in pin "L." To arm the factory alarm, the same wire needs a ground pulse through a 1k ohm resistor.
I have not installed the 1401, so I am not sure if that particular unit has outputs for factory arm and disarm, most DEI products do have at least a disarm wire that is light green/black. This wire outputs a negative pulse that should disarm the alarm without the addition of relays. If 1401 is equipped with a alarm rearm wire it would most likely be green/white. This wire also outputs a negative pulse but it will not be sufficient in rearming through a 1k ohm resistor without a relay. The relay terminal would be wired as follows if the 1401 is capable of this feature:

30 = vehicle black wire (solder in 1k ohm resistor)
87 = chassis ground
87a = no connection
85 = green/white wire of 1401
86 = 12v constant (fused - 5A is more than enough)

Viper remote starter sets off alarm.


Whoever hooked up your system did not hook up the factory alarm disarm and arm wires. Your car thinks it is being stolen as a result of this. You need to get a wire diagram of your car and hook up the proper wires.
