Remote Starter Features
Overview: The Viper Model 4105V Remote Start and Keyless
Entry system can start your car and run it by remote control from a distance of
up to 1500 feet for a preset amount of time. It also functions as a keyless
entry system, remotely locking and unlocking your vehicle's power door locks.
The Model 4105V does not provide car security.
Note: The remote start function is for fuel injected,
diesel, or hybrid vehicles only.
Remote Starting: Pressing the (*) button on the remote for a
second will remotely start the vehicle and run it for 12 minutes. You can extend
the run time to 24 or 60 minutes. If you wish to pre-heat or pre-cool the
vehicle, you must preset the climate controls prior to starting the vehicle.
When you are ready to drive the remotely-started vehicle, insert the ignition
key, turn it to the On position (not Start), and press the brake pedal.
Crank Time: If the unit is programmed for no engine checking
or voltage sense, the crank time must be set to the appropriate duration. The
default setting is 0.6 seconds. It can be lengthened to 0.8, 1.0, 1.2, 1.4, 1.6,
1.8, 2.0, or 4.0 seconds.
Diesel "Wait To Start" Timer: If you have a diesel vehicle,
you can set the starter to delay by a few seconds before engaging. The
"wait-to-start" duration can be set to 15, 30, or 45 seconds. Gasoline
engines will start approximately 4 seconds after the system acknowledges the
start command by flashing the parking lights.
Valet Takeover: This feature allows the vehicle to remain
running after the key has been removed from the ignition. This is useful for
those occasions when you wish to exit and lock the vehicle for short periods of
time while leaving the motor running and the climate controls on.
Automatic Shut-down/Starter Lockout: After the vehicle is
remote-started, the remote starter will shut down when the brake pedal is
pressed, the hood is opened, if the run time expires, or when the
remote start command is sent again from a remote control. In addition, if the
hood is opened or if the brake pedal is pressed, you cannot start the vehicle
using the remote starter.
Timer Mode: The Model 4105V can be programmed to start and
run the engine every three hours, for a maximum of six cycles. The engine will
run for the programmed run time (3, 6, 9, or 12 minutes) and then shut down.
After three hours, the system will restart the engine. The Timer Mode works only
when the system has been locked with the remote.
Anti-grind Circuitry: Whenever the vehicle is started using
the remote, advanced anti-grind circuitry prevents the starter from being engaged
using the key. (In other words, it won't let you try to start the car with the key
if the remote starter has already been engaged.) This prevents damage to the starter
motor. The optional Failsafe Starter Kill relay must be installed in order for
the anti-grind circuitry to work.
Shutdown Switch: You can temporarily disable the remote
start unit to prevent the vehicle from being remote started accidentally by
switching the supplied neutral safety toggle switch to the Off position.
Keyless Entry Features
Locking/Unlocking The Vehicle: Each 7145V
remote control has separate "Lock"
and "Unlock" buttons. When the "Lock" button is pressed, the doors lock, the
horn in the vehicle honks once and the parking lights flash once. In addition,
the Failsafe Starter Kill feature is activated, preventing the vehicle's starter
from cranking. When the
"Unlock" button is pressed, the doors unlock, the horn honks twice, and the
parking lights flash. In the Silent mode, the doors lock/unlock without the horn
honks, and the parking lights flash to confirm the operation.
Note: When interfacing with any other type of
factory door lock system besides negative switching locks, or when
adding aftermarket actuators, two relays (such as two
or a door lock module
will be required. If your vehicle requires the use of a Data
Integration module that controls your factory door locks, no
extra parts besides the Data Integration module will be required.
Trunk Release: When connected, the accessory output can
operate a factory power release for the vehicle's trunk or hatch. An optional
relay may be needed, and if the factory release is not power-activated, a trunk
release solenoid can often be added (Directed part # 522T).
Car Finder: If you're having difficulty finding your vehicle
in a crowded parking lot, the car finder function will cause the lights to flash
5 times slowly, allowing you to locate your vehicle.
Panic Mode: If you are threatened in or near your vehicle, you can
attract attention by triggering the system with your remote. Panic mode requires
the horn honk circuit to be connected.
