I need installation guide for Viper 5000
Identify the primary wiring
harness--it will have 12 wires, labeled as H1/1 through H1/12. The
colors of the wires are red/white, red, brown, yellow, black, violet,
blue, green, black/white, white/blue, white and orange. Locate this
harness and get ready to wire it into your car's electrical system.
Locate the H1/1 wire on the
primary wiring harness. This is the red-and-white wire. Connect the wire
to the trunk release button on your automobile. You should be able to
loosen a screw on the backside of the trunk release button, allowing you
to insert the wire along with the original trunk release wire, before
tightening the screw back down. This allows your Viper 5000 car alarm
remote to open the trunk of your car.
Find the H1/2 wire, which is
colored red. This wire is the primary input for the Viper 5000 car
alarm. Remove the fuse from the wire before connecting. There are two
options for where to connect the red wire. You can connect the wire
directly to the positive power terminal on your car battery, or you can
open the car ignition and splice the wire into the wire that supplies
12V power to the ignition. To do this, use your wire strippers to remove
a small amount of insulation from the ignition wire. Splice in the red
wire from the Viper 5000 and then wrap the connection with electrical
Connect the brown wire on the
Viper 5000 car alarm, identified as H1/3. Connect the brown wire
directly to the red wire on the Avenger siren and mount the siren under
the hood of your car. Connect the black wire of the siren directly to a
metal section on the car body. The brown wire supplies power to the
siren whenever the alarm determine it is needed. The siren's black wire
serves as a ground for the current.
Take the yellow H1/4 wire on the
primary wiring harness of your Viper 5000 car alarm. Connect the yellow
wire directly to the positive (+) 12V ignition wire. If you chose to
connect the red H1/2 wire to the ignition, you can connect this one at
the same time. It is important for the yellow wire to have a full 12
volts of electricity when the car's key is turned to the on position.
Check the 12V ignition wire carefully to make sure there are no nicks,
cuts or other problems that could cause the current to short.
Prepare to install the ground
for the Viper 5000 car alarm by looking under the hood or body of the
car for a bolt. Find a factory-installed boat that does not have any
other ground wires leading to it. Remove the bolt from the bolt hole. If
there is any paint on the metal around the bolt hole, scrape it off
with a razor blade. Find the black H1/5 cable on the wiring harness and
place the ring terminal at the end of the wire onto the bolt. Then place
the bolt back into its original position. The alarm system is now
grounded to the car chassis.
Set up the door trigger input.
Find the violet-colored wire labeled H1/6 and connect it to any existing
wiring that has an active 12V circuit whenever the doors are open. The
wires for the dome lights are often the best place for this connection.
Carefully strip a small amount of insulation from the dome light wire
and from the tip of the violet wire. Wrap the copper of the violet wire
tightly around the copper of the dome light wire, then seal the two
together with electrical tape.
Find the blue wire marked H1/7.
Connect this wire to sensor pins in either the hood or the trunk of your
car. This allows the Viper 5000 car alarm to detect if someone is
trying to break into these areas, and to instantly sound the alarm to
announce the presence of an intruder. Simply use a screwdriver to attach
the blue wires to a standard sensor pin.
Connect the negative door
trigger input to the Viper 5000 car alarm. This is the green wire
identified as H1/8. Similar to how the door trigger input (H1/6) was
connected to the wire running from the 12V power source to the dome
lights, the negative door trigger will be used on the opposite side of
that circuit. The negative current typically passes into the wire that
runs from the dome light back to the door switch. Splice the door
trigger input (H1/8) into this wire at any point between the door switch
and the light.
Establish a connection with the
high current output from the dome light supervision relay. Identify the
black and white wire labeled as H1/9. Plug the end of this wire directly
into the circuit for the vehicle dome light. Expose the dome light
circuit by opening the light compartment, the same as you would when
changing bulbs. Once the circuit is visible, locate the plug port and
plug the black and white wire from your Viper 5000 car alarm directly
into the port.
Skip the white-and-blue wire
labeled H1/10. This wire is used as a Channel 3 output and is not needed
unless you install extra devices that require it. For the time being,
just make sure there is no exposed copper at the end of the wire and
push it out of the way. If there is copper exposed on the wire, wrap it
with electrical tape so that it will be insulated and protected.
Hook up the output signal to
make the parking lights flash. Use the white H1/11 wire for this
purpose. Remove a small section of insulation from the end of the white
wire using a pair of wire strippers. Also remove a small amount of
insulation from the wire that connects the parking light relay switch to
the parking light bulb relay. Be careful not to cut all the way through
the wire. Twist the wires together so that the white wire is connected
to the light relay wire, then seal the connection with electrical tape.
Ground the Viper 5000 car alarm
when armed using the orange wire marked H1/12. Find a factory bolt on
the body of your automobile that does not have any other components
already using it for a ground. Under the hood or under the body of the
vehicle are ideal places to locate these bolts. Scrape away any paint
that may be under the bolt head and use the bolt to fasten the metal
ring at the end of the orange wire to the body of the car. Your Viper
alarm is now grounded to the vehicle whenever it is armed.
Test your alarm system. Your
Viper 5000 should now be able to unlock your doors, light the inside of
the car and prevent theft of your vehicle. Test the features of the
Viper 5000 car alarm to make sure that all components are working to
