Keyless Entry Features
Overview: The Viper Responder One 2-way Remote Start and Keyless
Entry system (Model 4203) can start your car and run it by remote control from a distance of
up to 2000 feet for a preset amount of time. It will also function as a keyless
entry system, but only after the vehicle is remotely started via the transmitter.
The Model 4203 does not provide car security.
Note: The remote start function is for fuel injected,
diesel, or hybrid vehicles only.
One-button Remotes: The Model 4203 includes two 1-button
transmitters (7211V) with 2-way operation. The single button controls all of the
functions of the system, including starting the vehicle, and unlocking the doors. The 7211V remotes are powered by
two CR2016 batteries (installed).
Responder One: This Responder One system offers one-button
remote start with a range of up to 2000 feet. The 2-way system provides
confirmation back to the remote's LED, so you will know the status of your
SuperCode: The system includes SuperCode technology for a
more secure operation. The system's signal encryption protocol is based on
software, which is superior to the hardware-based Clone Safe Code-Hopping found
in other models. SuperCode technology also lets you control the operations of
two cars by a single, one-button remote.
D2D Port: The Model 4203's control module has a D2D port
that will allow you to plug in an XpressKit vehicle interface. XpressKit
interfaces are vehicle-specific, and can greatly reduce installation time by
interfacing with your vehicle's factory wiring. Check the
Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to see if an XpressKit interface is available
for your vehicle.
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.
SmartStart Compatible: The optional Viper SmartStart module
lets you start, control, or locate your car from virtually anywhere with your
smartphone. Available SmartStart modules include the VSM200, VSM250 (with GPS),
and VSM50BT (with Bluetooth).
Remote Starter Features
Remote Starting: Pressing the transmitter 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.
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
Unlocking The Vehicle: The Model 4203 will remotely unlock
the vehicle's doors only after the engine has been remotely started via the
transmitter. The system can be programmed to lock and unlock the doors as the
ignition it turned on or off. If connected and programmed, the power doors will
lock three seconds after the ignition is turned on, and unlock when the ignition
is turned off. The lock and unlock functions are separately programmed.
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.
