Hi there, I am Cam. Can you tell me how many source wires you spliced into for your remote starter? Meaning at the ignition switch, did you use both red wires for power or just one?
OK so your short one. The brown and orange, as well as white in the branch off to the back of the left dash fuse block. Brown and orange both must have an accessory feed, the white (second IGN) and the pin from the main plug are ignition. Starter you have correct and powers. Most remote starters have the option to have an accessory ground out for just this reason. Get a loose relay, use the ground from the Viper to the black wire of the relay, red and yellow to the battery feed at the main connection, and then the blue goes to the brown. Without this, its missing a feed, codes will set and errors will happen.
Brown from the ignition switch. I am not sure what the colour is from the VIPER, its not one that I have dealt with, but there should be a second one, your orange you mentioned with eh -200a, that should be the one you can use to control the second relay.
Yes, the second accessory is not hooked up. Use the orange in the 4pin satellite harness to control the relay as the power requirements of the brown require it.
your primary output orange goes to the orange in the ignition switch. The smaller orange goes to a relay to power the brown in the ignition wiring for the second accessory
You not understanding what I'm saying. The issue isn't the wiring between your remote starter in the security bypass, it's the fact that you don't have enough power feeding the proper wires in the vehicle to make it operate. I've seen this several times. You need to hook up a relay to the orange wire like I described to fix this issue. Because the remote starter and the bypass module or different makes, and the vehicle is 12 years old, it's still uses high-power high amperage wires to control things. It's only in the newest vehicles that minimal wiring can be used to control things.
Black wire from the relay harness goes to orange in 4 pin satellite harness white and yellow from relay harness get spliced to red main power feeds. Blue gets spliced to brown second accessory feed. It's a computer controlled throttle. Without all the proper Feeds, codes set and issues happen.
There will be numbers stamped into the bottom. Using regular crimp connectors that slide over the pins, your wire colors will be as follows.
85 will be black, 86 will be white. 30 will be yellow. 87 will be blue.
Was the lock correct before?
It sounds like a data link error caused by a bad ground. My opinion is that connecting the remote starter to the security module with hard wires is far better than relying on the data feed between the two. I find its always problematic despite what the manufactures say. Find the lock and unlock wires for each and install those and see what happens.
Also consider doing a reset of the security module in reprogramming it now that it has the proper ignition feeds set up.
Ok. So that part I cannot help you with. Is there support from the place you bought it from?
Ok, what ground wires did you splice into? Any loose connections? If no the take battery cables off, touch the ends together for 10 seconds and put back on. Clean the throttle body and check all fuses. See what that does next. I cannot stress enough how important solid the connections need to be. I won't use crimp connectors, rather i will solder all terminals for that reason.
Ok, do the vehicle reset and learn and see what that does.
See my post 3 back about the battery cables.
Mehta did you use for the tach signal?
What not Mehta. Got to love apple.
Have you tried driving it to relearn the idle?
There is a wire messed up somewhere and if not, something with the combination of modules you are adding is not compatible despite what it says, and I cannot tell which without looking at it in person. I will open this up for other experts. Maybe one of them had this happen.
