When i got mine in, I found like three different sets of instructions online for reprogramming the remotes. Just had to find the right one for my alarm, which ended up being the easiest one. I had actually bought the wrong remote at first and while I got it to work for locking and unlocking the doors it wouldn't program for the correct buttons. You had to use the same button to lock and unlock. Finally go the correct remote and works great.mine wouldnt program replacement remotes at all, lost my 2 way, had to use the regular remote, it worked good until it screwed up
The problems I've heard about Viper is lower quality units over the last several years and shitty customer support should any problems arise which has turned a lot of installers away from them. It was the customer support that caused the guy who installed my alarm to drop the Viper line from his shop.Absolutely nothing wrong with Viper alarms. DEI alarms, clifford, Python and Viper are all the same alarm systems. I have several Viper 5902 Responder HD Color SuperCode SST 2-Way Security and Remote Start System5902V also the Previous 5901 and never an issue. Security system problems normally arise from the installation. Viper also has a Iphone app that's really cool the Smart Start. you can check status and arm/disarm/RS multiple vehicles. With no distance limitation - now that's cool
You sure that $500 is without install?? Most stereo shops advertised price is the installed price. And whether you have them install it or not, it's the same price. They make all their money on labor, not parts. Mine was $450 installed, and even if I just bought the alarm from them and installed it myself, it was still $450. I could have bought the same alarm on Ebay all day long for under $200. Even the guy who installed it told me his cost on the actual alarm itself was only like $120.Well I know someone that could put it for me for like 100 bucks. The stereo shop here wants 500 bucks for the alarm i'm looking at. Thats with out install.
