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!!!

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.
The following instructions will enable the Bell 9242 remote to operate a Bell 5900 receiver. Remove back battery cover. Just below the "Bell" lettering on the front of the remote, there is a half moon shaped plastic insert "key" that slids out downward. Turn over the plastic key and reinsert back into postion and replace the battery cover. Success!
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.
