Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
I don't know what the problem is exactly, but you might want to try pressing the Valet Mode button, which should shut Off security and allow it to start and run.
Do you know where the Valet Mode button is on your alarm system box? or is your remote a multi-button remote so that pressing two buttons at once gives you Valet Mode (as it does in some) ?
The Viper alarm system box is sometimes under the dash, at the left side. The Valet Mode button is on it and needs to be pressed and held for about 2 to 5 seconds.
What happened when you pressed both buttons on your remote? I hope it wasn't bad. Did it enable starting?
I am not sure what the orange button does, but it is probably the 'learn' button, and you needn't press it at this time, it would just bring on complications.
You need to locate the alarm system's Valet Mode button instead. It is often mounted at the bottom of the driver's side dash, in a visible but not obvious location.
Press that button once, immediately after putting in the key and turning it to On. Do not hold the button.

I'm sorry if I told you the Valet Mode button had to be held down; I was tired late yesterday and remembered that part wrong.
