Viper won't remote start and arm/disarm only works sometimes

Hello, I think I have a Viper 5900 and I noticed a while back that the arm/disarm was not working most of the time. I also noticed that the remote start was also not working. I would push the button, but then the transmitter would beep as if it was out of range (even though I'm right next to the car). It's only a little over 2 years old and was installed by BestBuy. Right now I can arm/disarm it only if I point at a certain spot and I'm right up on the car. Help!!!

    Yes, I've changed the batteries a few times already. I used to have rechargeables in it and then I thought that might be part of the problem so I changed to regular batteries (which didn't change anything it seems).



    Also, I started having this problem a short while before finding out that the battery in my car was going bad. I have since changed the car battery and I'm still having the problem.

Greetings Microluv,

Simple question, have you changed the battery in your remote lately? I was having similiar issues with my remote start and it was a simple matter of changing the batteries in the remote.

I figured lets eliminate the easy stuff first. :)

Car does not arm or disarm when door opened alarm goes off


Hi, I love the viper. Mine worked flawlessly for many years until one time my unit would not arm or disarm. Obviously 1st I checked batteries which were good. I took mine to installer and they said I had a remote go bad. He got me new remote and that was it. Sometimes I wonder if somehow I managed to hit a factory reset sequence on my remote. Considering your also having an issue with door contacts as well, I would hope it's not the main unit. My system also had a special override switch in the footwell, if you have one, perhaps you may have switched accidentally. Hope this helps in troubleshooting.

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.

Viper 5900 this morning i noticed i couldn't look my doors it has these three squiggly lines at the back of the car what does that mean and what should i do


The 3 squiggly lines are meant to show that the car is running in remote start mode. As far as the door locks not working, that could be caused by a few things.. This unit does have a history of the antenna going bad, and will work sometimes, and not others. I suggest you take it to the place that installed it, and have them check it out..

Change the battery, 2-way remotes require 2 slim batteries on top of one another. Regular remotes only require 1.

I cant disarm my alarm


Get inside the car, turn the key to the on position, the alarm is going to sound so do not panic when the alarm sounds press the valet button one time and the alarm should stop. To place the alarm in valet mode cycle the key with the door open on then off then press the valet button one time and the alarm should go into valet mode meaning the alarm light will be on steady.

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.
