20 Most Recent Remote Start System - Page 9 Questions & Answers


The problem you have described do not sound remote start related. A remote start unit does not have the ability to alter the RPM. The remote start system only replicates the process of turning on the ignition, starting the engine and keeping it running for a predetermined length of time.
The heater temperature problem should not be remote starter related either.
As for the day time running lights, although rare, if wired inproperly there is the possibility that the remote starter has caused it to fail. This will have to be determined by a qualified technician.

If the brake wire is active then you probably need to check the connections. The brown wires may be switched. There is a brown wire for the horn and a brown wire for the brake. If that's not the case then it's possible that the wrong wire at the switch is connected. Also, when the brake switch goes bad in some vehicles the wire remains active (hot).

To program the remote; turn ignition on, press and release valet switch one time, then press and hold valet switch. While holding valet switch press lock button on remote. System should respond with a chirp/flashing parking lights. Release switch and remote and turn ignition off. Test remote.

First, be sure that the remote is programmed for the vehicle by using it to operate the door locks(pressing the lock and unlock buttons). The parking lights should flash if nothing else works.The usual way to operate the remote starter with this remote is by pressing the * button once but, the option could have changed if the remote has been reprogrammed differently. So, try pressing the * button once. If this doesn't work press it twice within two seconds.If this doesn't work try pressing the lock and unlock buttons at the same time. If these steps fail to initiate the remote starter try the steps listed for the * button with the aux button. If either of the remote starter inhibits (hood pin, neutral safety) are active you should receive flashing parking lights for a failed attempt to remote start.

Is this a new install or a preexisting install?

You're better off taking your vehicle to your local car audio shop that deals with these items, and pay them the $140 - $200 labor fee to install it the right way!

You have to go into the programming options and change the wait time. There is usually a 7 second or 18 second wait option

Check your owners guide in the options category. Sometimes there is an option that is temperature related. Example: once outside temp reaches -25deg C the remote start will start the vehicle every 2 hours. Some times there is an on/off switch for this and some times it has to be changed in the programming of the remote start. I have seen them where they are set to start every 30 minutes when it reaches a cretain temp. There sould be somewhere on the module itself where it tells you the brand of remote start, try to find that and check their website or let me know and I might be able to help you further.

It sounds like the bypass module is not bypassing. The next time that you attempt to remote start the vehicle, look at the cluster for a flashing key. If there is a key inside a car flashing...your bypass module is not functioning.

You did not mention the year/make/model but, it sounds like the HVAC wire of the vehicle was not connected during the installation or, the 30 amp fuse that powers the accessory output from the Viper is blown. Did the heat and A/C work before during remote start?

Getting brake on fault? The remote starter/alarm has a brake sutdown wire(brown) and it connects to the switched brake wire of the vehicle. This means that when the remote starter is active, depressing the brake will send 12 volts to the remote starter, shutting the system down. If the brake shutdown wire is seeing 12 volts constantly, the remote starter will never start. Either the brake sutdown wire is connected to the wrong wire at the brake switch or, there is a problem with your brake switch. When there is a faulty brake switch, the switched wire will rest at 12 volts. One sure way to tell is that the brake lights are on constantly (the bulb may have blown by now).
