Question about 4003L Avital 4003 Remote Start Module (Replaces 561T)

Open Question

I bought a Avital 4003 remote start for my father's 1998 ford ranger. The installation instructions are horrible. I've found a couple of wire keys to try and match where the wires "should" go, unfortunately, that wasn't enough. In the installation guide, harness H1, wire 3 (Yellow), wire 4 (White/Blue)- I have no idea where to hook this up. All and all, This setup is a guessing game and I suppose made for professional installation only. I'm familiar with electronics in general but this one has got me stumped. If someone could walk me thru the installation for this specific vehicle, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Alarm keeps turning on when I turn on my car starter

Okay, the Avital 4111 is a one button remote starter. So, it has no way of locking your car doors except if wired to lock after start or, after shut down. In the 2010 CRV, the unit should have been wired to disarm the alarm before start(brown wire in kick panel) and to unlock doors when running (grey wire in kick panel in same harness as disarm) with the press and release of the remote starter remote. If the unit is not working in cold weather it may be due to the installer using a valet key instead of a bypass and/or the unit may be programmed for virtual tachometer or voltage instead of having a true tachometer wire connected.

I bought a used Ford Crown Victoria with an Avital system installed and the seller told me the way the system was setup was using the keyless entry to unlock the doors as the only way to start the car

The way the system was set up?! Here is what it sounds like. If you cannot start the car with the key but, you can start it with the remote starter means two things; the car has a starter inhibit installed and it's active or, the starter wire is cut and isolated from the ignition cylinder and the remote starter is connected to the starter side only of said cut wire.
About the keyless entry; Ford vehicle have a battery save mode that, after 10 minutes or so, the GEM module goes to sleep. The installation of a keyless entry system on these vehicles require connections at the unlock, driver's door ajar/latch wire and factory alarm disarm and programmed to double pulse. This will wake up the GEM and unlock the doors.

yes, there are two fuses on the main wiring harnesses for the remote start brain. also try reprogramming the transmitters:
1. Turn key to ignition position (ON) 2. press and release programming button (you will need to locate this in your vehicle, ask your installer where this was placed; it can normally be found under the driver's side of the under-dash) 3. press and hold programming button 4. while holding programming button, press lock on each transmitter one at a time. 5. Turn key off and remove, test transmitters.

You mean the igniton powers up but it does not start, correct? Sounds like the remote starter is not sending power to the starter. Did it ever work? It's possible that one of the 30amp fuses (one that supplies power to the starter output of the remote starter) is blown. If there is 12 volts present, check for voltage at the starter wire (purple) from the remote starter. If it has voltage,make sure it's connected. Also make sure that the harnesses of the remote starter are completely plugged into the module.

I have a Dodge Caravan 2001 SE. Had the Avital 4103 installed. My question is, before installation i had a Chrysler car alarm in the van. When the remote start was installed they removed the alarm.
The shut down toggle switch was not installed, also the push button valet switch was not installed also. Is this a correct installation, I was told that I did not need the last two items to be installed.

it sounds like its the bypass module. When it doesnt start the car goes into security mode and wont let it start for up to 15 minutes. I would check the bypass module to see if it still has power or has been reset, if its not something you can do, bring it to a local mobile electronics shop and they should be able to take care of it for ya.
