I have a Viper starting system installed on my 07 Suzuki

Customer Question

Hello, I have a Viper starting system installed on my 07 Suzuki Forenza. I lost one of the fobs. On the back of my fob it states 474A 2/66. There is a small toggle switch at the bottom of the dash to shut off the system when working on the car. Is there a valet button (can't find it), or is the toggle switch used as a valet button. I bought this car with the remote start installed already.

Remote 474A 2/66 is used on a number of different Remote Start / Alarms
To give you correct info, I would need the Model Number from the Main Unit, located under the Driver Dash.
Some Vipers have the Valet Switch on the Antenna typically located on the Windshield
Some Vipers have the Valet Switch located under the dash
Some Vipers use a Push Button & some use a Toggle Switch
Some Vipers use the Remote for Valet
Usually the way to put Unit into Valet is to Press the Button until the LED Stays ON or goes OFF
But it depends on the Model Number

Locate the Main Unit & let me know the Model Number

You posted that you have a "Viper Remote Start?
Are you sure?
Auto Mate is a Brand for Keyless Entry & / or Remote Start & the Remote looks similar

When the system was installed it said Viper. It is a keyless entry system. There is no alarm system that I know of with this remote start.

Auto Mate & Viper are both made by D.E.I.
That is a Auto Mate Remote......NOT Viper

I posted the Auto Mate instructions
Please have a look for "VALET" procedures & locate the Switch to proceed

Hello
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 8 months ago.

sorry...........I have given you as much info as possible & you would be better to have a Local Car Electronics Shop have a look, because it can be a little difficult if you have never seen or worked on Car Electronics

good luck
