Question Viper Alarm Installation??

Don't know if I'm at the right thread but it won't let me post a new thread on the How To section so anyways.... I have a Viper Alarm 5701 and so wanting to put it in. Does anyone know how to install it in or some online instructions. All I need to know is what all the wires are inside the truck upon hooking everything up. I do not want to go to Best Buy and get it installed. They cost 300 dollars. Screw that! So if anybody would help me I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

I dunno the answer to your question but the how-to section is for a description on how to do something (for example you take lots of pics and write step by step instructions) so that's why you can't post in there... you have to submit your article then a mod moves it over.

Bump for the question though

Well, for starters you need a diagram of the wires under your dash. Mainly looking for ignition, starter, 12 volt wires.

12 give it constant power, ignition tells it when the truck is going to start and the starter wires are used if your alarm has a starter interruption. This involves you cutting your starter wire. The alarm will have two wires that will connect into the ends of the cut starter wires. One wire goes to the motor side and one to the ignition side. This way when the alarm is going off, no one can crank the truck!

You will also need to tap the parking light wire for flashing lights which is behind the headlight switch. You will also need to find the wire or tap the wire for the doorpin which tells the alarm when a door is opened.

Does your truck have power locks? Sometimes can be a pain but usally not a big deal...

Other than ground and running the antenna you also have a valet switch and siren to mount.

Your alarm manual will tell you what wire from your alarm should be connected to the power wires I mentioned.


I used to install these but haven't in a while. If you have a general question just post back. Main thing is getting a volt meter, wire strippers and go for it!

This site has some instructions you could look over.
http://www.ehow.com/how_3684_install-car-alarm.html

PS...I always solder my alarms. Some people don't but I think its worth the extra time. Especially the starter hook up. You can use T-taps for the other wires if you want though.

Hope this helped some.

I installed my Remote Start Viper in my 01 and if you have installed stuff like that before its not that hard. The hardest part I had was getting the ring for the PATS bypass in the correct location. If you have installed alarms, car stereos and done some general electrical this might be easy. If you have not........ There is a reason why they charge so much for it. If you are interested this might help and I can help via here or pm if needed.

BTW, I figured out a NEAT trick to wake up the GEM module on my 01 and it will work on yours also.

DUDE!!!! This is exactly what I have been trying to look for hours on the internet and you just put on here like hey here you go lol. You rock. Now, all I have to do is study it and go for it. Yes I know about electrical stuff. All my lights, audio, subs, everything that has to do with wires and electricity flow, I did it and it all works great. So this has to be my biggest electronic work yet. But thank you for the write up and I will definitely PM you if I stump into a problem. Thanks again

My alarm/starter did not come with a spdt relay thing.... Do I "absolutely" have to have it in order to work? I just really want to install everything. I had this alarm/starter since February and still it sits in my room. Thanks

what was your audio shop? might have one down here... I just got finished marking all the wires and overall i have 15 wires to hook up. Then the two horn wires and the 8 bypass module wires so overall 25 wires. Not bad. Now I got aquanted with the alarm wires time to go and study the truck wires and mark them. Screw BestBuy and there 300 dollar install. I'll do it myself. Or try to find a place that can do it for cheap (the lazy way). Or put a challenge on me and do it myself.
