Question about Viper RCVGC022 Remote Control

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. :)

Directed Electronics (Viper) Car Security System

First of all did you remove a connection from the battery in your car so that the system can reset?
Try that first and at the same time take the batteries out of the remotes for a minute or so and hook back up.

I don't believe that you need to configure it.
It should be preconfigure to work.
What i think after revising the manual and from past experience with car remotes, the type of socket used for the battery inside the remote itself is often missing or broken solder. To make this more clear, the battery socket might need to be resolder on the small circuit board inside your remote.

good luck

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.
