You will be best to connect the real tach wire. You will need to programme the alarm to recognise the speed of the engine, this way it will know where the idle position is.

Yes your alrm could have been installed wrong. Depending on where the tech hooked up his wiring he maybe at a spot where the alarm is not allowing the trucks computers to shut down. The trucks computers should shut down after 20 minutes to where it draws only 20 to 30 milliamps. If the tech hooked up his wiring in the wrong locations the computer may never shut down and will stay at 150 to 200 milliamp draw which in this case would drain the battery

SOURCE: Change VIPER Responder One runtime

Actually the first solution may or may not be true. If whomever installed the remote starter "locked" the programming with a bitwriter, then you will need to take it back to someone with a bitwriter to unlock and change the setting. If it was not locked then you can change run times for that model yourself. You have choices of 12, 24 or 60 minutes. 12 is the factory setting (with a bitwriter you can choose in one minute increments). If your system is unlocked this is how you can change the runtime setting. It's a bit of a pain so you might want to write it down. There should be a small programming button attached to wires coming from the "brain". First, locate that button. 1. Turn ignition key on then back off. 2. Quickly push and HOLD the programming button. If the horn was hooked up to the remote start system, it should honk once. (If it wasn't you'll have to look for a small led status light on the brain that should flash once) To change runtime, keep holding the button down till the horn honks twice (or the led flashes twice). 3. Release button after horn honks twice (or led flashes twice.) You are now in menu two where runtime is set. 4. Within 10 seconds, press and release the programming button two times. Now push and HOLD the programming button. You are now on feature two of menu two (runtime options). While still holding the programming button in, press the remote start button on the fob the number of times that corresponds with the run time you want. once = 12 minutes, twice = 24 minutes and three times equals 60 minutes. After selection has been made release programming button. The programming sequence will be cancelled if any of the following occur: Ignition is turned on or programming button is pressed too many times or more than 25 seconds elapses between steps. Like I said, it is a pain to do manually and there is a possibility you could mess up other settings if you get it wrong. But this is what the install manual states if you want to give it a go. Good luck!

This sounds like you have a delay domelight and they used that to trigger the alarm. You domelight stays on for 20 seconds after you close the door so because it is still on the alarm thinks the door is open even if the doors are closed. you can fix that by having a tech hook up the door triggers to the door latch wires and not the domelight itself...or you can program the alarm in Menu 2 otion 3 to not sense the door ajar when you first arm your alarm.

Make sure you turn the key to the on/run position, then once you place your foot on the brakes to put the vehicle in gear the remote will beep and recognize the alarm.

Viper 5501 control center won't enter pairing mode


If you didn't already get it all set you can disconnect power from unit for a little while (10 or minutes) and reconnect, you then should be able to program your remotes regardless if it was locked or not.

I cannot enter fuction programming on viper 5501


You're going about all wrong. ALL the power wires need to be connected.
The MTS programmimg is not done through the remote, it's done WITH the remote. Open your instructions; Turn ignition on then off, press and hold programming button on antenna untill the LED flashes three times, release programming button. Now, press and release the programming button one time then press and hold. (This the transmission option) Press the unlock on the remote. The LED should flash two times indicating that the system is now in automatic transmission. Turn the ignition on to exit programming.

The remotes for my Viiper 5501 won't charge


There was an issue with these remotes when first manufactured. Try this, when initially charging the remote; plug the charger into the outlet then, plug it into the remote; remove, plug it in, remove; continue. It should take approximately six times before the remote says "charge" in the screen. If you repeat the process and the remote does not "wake up", replace it.

I have a viper 5501 LC3 SST LCD alarm; my problem is the door open sign goes on, when the doors are well closed, this happen not always but often. Helpme Please! Thanks!


You failed to mention the year/make/model of the vehicle so, my answer will be as general as your question. Either you have a vehicle that has a delayed dome light and , the alarm is tied to that wire or there is a problem with one of your door pin switches.

The battery on my viper 5501 ran down. I plugged it in to recharge and now it won't work. The back-up key fob does work. how can i reset it? thanks very much.


Are you talking about the Remote LCD key fob itself? If you are then you need to replace the battery. Search on ebay. Hopefully this helps.
