Keyless Entry Features
Overview: The Viper Model 4606V 1-way Remote Start and Keyless
Entry system 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 4606V does not provide car security.
Note: The remote start function is for fuel injected,
diesel, or hybrid vehicles only.
Installation: Because of the complexity of modern vehicles
and remote start and keyless entry systems,
professional installation is recommended. For experienced do-it-yourselfers,
you may be able to save time and money by using a T-harness or vehicle interface
from XpressKit. Contact a Crutchfield Advisor to see if there is an interface
available for your vehicle.
Remote: The Model 4606V includes one 5-button
transmitter (7656V) with 1-way operation. The remote has dedicated buttons for
Lock, Unlock, Remote Start, and Aux/Trunk. The Function button allows you to
reach additional levels of commands, auxiliary channels, and programming
options. The system is also compatible with the
7756V LCD remote and the 2-way
7856V LED remote. The 7656V remote is powered by
a CR2032 battery (installed).
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 remote.
D2D Port: The Model 4606V'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.
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
VSM250 (with GPS),
VSM50BT (with Bluetooth).
A dedicated 3-pin Bitwriter/SmartStart port is provided on the control center
allows you to plug in the Viper SmartStart module.
Car Finder: If you're having difficulty finding your vehicle
in a crowded parking lot, the car finder function will cause the horn to emit
one long honk and the parking lights to flash
for 10 seconds, to help 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.
Rapid Resume Logic: This Viper remote start system stores its current
settings in non-volatile memory. If power is lost, the system will recall the
stored settings from memory when power is restored.
Remote Starter Features
Remote Starting: Pressing the Remote Start 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.
Note: Because of safety concerns, we strongly recommend professional installation for
remote start systems in vehicles with manual transmissions.
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 Start Delay: If you have a diesel vehicle,
you can set the starter to delay by a few seconds before engaging. The
Diesel Start Delay 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.
Advanced Start Features: The Viper Model 4606V's Advanced
Start features can automatically start the engine to maintain battery charge or
combat extreme cold when parked for an extended period of time. The Timer Start
feature starts the engine after a pre-programmed amount of time, and runs the
engine for the preset runtime. The default interval is 3 hours and the default
number of starts is 6. Smart Start adds a couple of conditions to the Timer
Start settings. When the interval timer expires, the vehicle's interior temperature and
battery level is checked. If the temperature is above 100°
or below 0°, or if the battery voltage is below 10.5V, the engine will start.
Turbo Timer: When the Turbo Timer mode is activated, the
system keeps the engine running at idle for the Turbo Timer runtime (default 1
minute). This allows enough time to properly cool the turbo before turning it
Pit Stop: 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.
Auxiliary Outputs: The Model 4606V's three auxiliary channel
outputs can activate many of the convenience features found on today's vehicles.
Some of those features include: Trunk release, Open/close windows, Left sliding
door open/close, Right sliding door open/close, Rear hatch open/close, Sunroof
open/close, Audio system, and Headlights.
vehicle must be compatible with the feature in order for it to be controlled
by the alarm system.
Keyless Entry Features
Unlocking The Vehicle: The Model 4606V 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 is turned on or off. If properly 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.
Driver Door Priority Unlocking: The system can be configured
to emulate an OEM style of driver priority unlocking for additional safety and
convenience. When programmed, the driver door will unlock with the first press
of the unlock button, and the remaining doors will unlock with a second press of
Comfort Closure: Some vehicles have the ability to roll the
windows up or close the sunroof by turning the key in the door cylinder or
holding the lock button of an OEM keyless entry. The system's Comfort Closure
feature will emulate this convenience feature when properly programmed,
automatically closing the windows and sunroof when the doors are locked.
