Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

This red light does it look non OEM which would indicate its a aftermarket alarm or immobilizer?

Is there a way to bypass the remote if and when it happens again??
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 11 months ago.

Is this OEM or aftermarket remote and system?

When it fails are you not able to open the door with the key?

The VIP RS3000 does not have a bypass feature in the event the remote key fob fails.
