I installed a 5101 viper remote start in my 1997
Do you have the wiring/installation manual for the Viper system? If so, there should be a description of what it means if the lights flash when a remote start is requested. This could be a diagnostic that one of the sensors is not detecting the correct input, such as a door is open, the hood is open, the transmission is not in park, parking brake is not engaged, etc. Also, there may be some programmable pins that need to be configured to ignore some inputs, set input polarity, etc.

I have a Avital model 4100 remote car starter. My
I'm not familiar with this particular model, but do you have the wiring/installation diagram for this system? If so, does the manual specify if these are trigger wires or if they are output/source wires?
They could be trigger wires to allow a secondary system to activate the remote start and they provide options for either a negative trigger or a positive trigger. They could also be outputs that will provide a negative signal/pulse or a positive signal/pulse to activate other features when a remote start is successful (such as to activate a relay to power the heated seats).

CAN A IGNITION SWITCH CAUSE
Yes it can. There is a thick WHITE colored wire, that needs to power up as a true ignition wire or it will not activate the electrical portion of your transmission. This is a common known problem especially with dealing with remote starters in these vehicles.
