hi guys/girls, im hoping someone here has installed a remote start or has had a similar issue to mine. first ill give some background info:
the remote start is a viper 5701.
the regular alarm and door unlock/lock part of the alarm works fine. when it comes to the remote start, ive bypassed the VATS system at the Theft deterent module behind the glove box. i used a 4 wire bypass from http://www.xdponline.com/index.php?main
... 8f5b90c20f --this seems to be working right as the car will still crank and stay running even with TDM disconnected.
the wires i used for the remote start are
h3/1 -- (+) IGNITION 1 INPUT/OUTPUT -- connected to PINK at the ignition switch
h3/3 -- ACCESSORY OUTPUT -- connected to ORANGE at ignition switch
h3/4 -- (+) STARTER OUTPUT (CAR SIDE OF THE STARTER KILL WIRE) -- connected to yellow
h3/5 -- (+) STARTER INPUT (KEY SIDE OF THE STARTER KILL WIRE) -- connected to yellow
h3/6 -- (+) FUSED (30A) IGNITION 1 INPUT -- connected to RED at ignition switch
h3/9 -- FUSED (30A) ACCESSORY/STARTER INPUT -- connected to RED at ignition switch
i also connected the brake light wire to the blue wire at the brake switch, the neutral safety switch is grounded to the black ground wire of the alarm h1/5 harness. i didnt connect the hood pin or tach wire as i thought they wouldn't be immediately necessary to get the system working. the factory alarm disarm wire is connected to the light green wire at the drivers kick panel.
i think those are the most basic necessary connections needed to get the remote start working as well as the on/off switch and setting the system to auto transmission mode.
my problem is that the remote start will start the car, but then it will randomly shut down by itself, there will be about a 3 second pause and it will restart itself. this process will continue until i press the remote start button again to turn it off. there is also no set amount of time before it will shut down and restart itself. it can shutdown a couple seconds after it starts or it can shut down 5 mins after its been running. so the interval between running and shutting down is not consistent. but it never reaches the default 12min shut down timer.
the remote start itself seems to work properly; stepping on the break shuts it down and i can even drive the car press RS button and take the key out and it will keep running.
any ideas why it is randomly shutting down?
