Default remote start question

a few months ago i left the key on in the wifes envoy , killing the battery. recharged the battery and now the remote start doesnt work. lights come on but the engine doesnt turn over. i called mickey shorr and they said it would be $32.50 to "reset the chip".
is this something i can do ? its a viper remote start. hate to let go of the cash if its just a simple fix !

the remote and brain need to be programmed. the brain on the box isnt letting the remot engage the starter thinking it is someone else.

32.50 is a pretty good price. I don't know that you will do it yourself. You fry the brain trying it yourself and thats around 125.00
