Hello. Thank you for coming to JustAnswer.

You should have a switch under the drivers side dash board that will put the viper into valet mode.

Putting the key in the ignition and turning the car on will reset the security system. If it will not turn on because of the car security, turn the ignition key half way until the security light goes from blinking to steady. Then turn it off again and then turn to start. Let me know if this corrects the problem or if you need additional help.

Ok... that is helpful. That is the antenna. You should be able to shut the system off with that button. Turn your key to the "on" or "run" position then back off and then tap the button that is blinking one time. That should put the system into valet mode.
