Keyless Entry Features
Overview: The Viper Model 5606V 1-way
Security and Remote Start System will protect your vehicle with
the most up-to-date electronic technologies available, including Remote Start,
the Stinger Double-Guard shock sensor, the Revenger six-tone siren, and the
Failsafe Starter Kill. The system has 3 auxiliary outputs to provide keyless
entry and other convenience features. The unit is covered by a limited lifetime
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 5606V 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: SuperCode technology is a software-based protocol
for encrypting the signal between the remotes and the control center. It
replaces the hardware-based Clone Safe Code-Hopping technology found in older
Viper systems. SuperCode lets you operate all possible functions for two cars
using a single remote.
SmartStart Compatible: The Model 5606V is compatible with
Viper's SmartStart module that enables you to operate specific functions of the
system from your smartphone.
Using SmartStart, you can lock and unlock your vehicle, open the trunk, start
the vehicle, or trigger the Panic Mode from your phone. Available SmartStart
modules include the
VSM250 (with GPS), and
VSM50BT (with Bluetooth).
Control Center: In addition to the hideaway control module,
the system also includes a control center. This newly redesigned module includes the RF remote antenna,
the status LED, and a control button to engage the Valet Mode or Emergency Override. The control
center should mounted high on the front windshield using the supplied dual-sided
D2D Port: The hideaway Control Module (brain) is equipped with a
4-pin D2D port which allows the 5606V to be connected to the vehicle via an XpressKit
wiring interface. There are interfaces available for hundreds for vehicles which
can save hours of cutting and splicing into factory wires by plugging between
the alarm system and the vehicle's wiring harnesses. Please contact a
Crutchfield advisor to find out if there are interfaces available for
Failsafe Starter Kill: To prevent your vehicle from being
stolen, the control unit has a built-in relay which will prevent the engine from
starting. To start the car, it will
be necessary to disarm the system with the remote control.
Revenger Siren: The Model 5606V includes the Revenger Soft
Chirp siren (model 514LN). It consists of six different tones in sequence. Any of
the tones can be eliminated, resulting in a unique, easily identifiable siren
sound. The siren chirps can be either full volume (120dB) or six decibels quieter than
the full alarm blast. The length of time the siren sounds can be adjusted from 1
to 180 seconds at the time of installation.
Stinger Double-Guard Shock Sensor: The system features the
Stinger Double-Guard Shock Sensor, which is designed to pick up impacts to the
vehicle or glass. The sensitivity of the shock sensor is adjustable using the
rotary control on the side of the shock sensor module. When the
sensitivity is properly set, a light impact will generate the
"Warn-Away" pre-warning chirp of the siren. A harder impact will trigger a full
Auxiliary Outputs: The 5606V has 3 Auxiliary Channel outputs
that can activate many of the convenience features found in today's vehicles.
Some possible convenience features include: Trunk release, Windows open/close,
Sliding Doors 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.
Silent Modes: The system gives you a number of silent modes:
- Silent Arm: You can turn off the vehicle siren and
flashing lights on a one-time basis, leaving the system's paging feature as
the only alarm response.
- Full Silent Arm Protection: In full silent mode, the siren cannot
be triggered, but any trigger will cause the 2-way remote to be paged.
- Sensor Silent Arm Protection: In this mode, a sensor cannot
trigger the siren, but will cause the 2-way remote to be paged. All entry
points (doors, hood, etc.) will still trigger the siren.
Ignition-controlled Door Locks: 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. You can program the
system to perform lock only, unlock only, or both.
Car Finder: If you're having difficulty finding your vehicle in a
crowded parking lot, the car finder function will cause the siren to emit one
long chirp and flash the parking lights for 10 seconds.
Valet Mode: You can prevent the system from automatically arming and
triggering by using the Valet Mode. This is very useful when washing the vehicle
or having it serviced. In Valet Mode, the security system will not arm, even
with the remote control, but all convenience features (door locks, trunk
release) continue to work normally.
Nuisance Prevention Circuitry: The Nuisance Prevention Circuitry
prevents annoying repetitive trigger sequences due to faulty door pin switches
or environmental conditions, such as thunder, jackhammers, airport noise, etc.
If the alarm triggers three times within a 60 minute period, and each time the
same sensor or switch triggers the alarm, the NPC ignores, or bypasses, that
sensor or switch (along with any other sensors or switches sharing the same
zone) for 60 minutes.
Bitwriter: Programming the system with a Bitwriter
Programming tool (such as the Directed Electronics 998T) gives you access to a
wider range of system options. Programming details that only need to be set once
can be accessed more easily with the Bitwriter. You can also lock out access to
some features with the Bitwriter, preventing access to those features by remote.
Optional Accessories: The Viper Model 5606V can accept a wide range of
convenience and security accessories:
- Field Disturbance Sensor: Item #
607508D for detecting movement inside or just outside of your vehicle.
- Audio Sensor: Item #
607506T for glass impact audio detection.
- Tilt Sensor: Item #
607507M to monitor the tilting of your parked vehicle (caused by an
attempt to jack up or tow your vehicle)
- Ultrasonic Sensor: Item #
607509U to monitor the airspace inside your vehicle to detect subtle
Remote Start Features
Remote Start Overview: The Viper Model 5606V can start your
car and run it by remote control from a distance of up to 2000 feet for a preset
amount of time. The remote start can be used on vehicles with manual or
Note: Because of safety concerns, we strongly recommend professional installation for
remote start systems in vehicles with manual transmissions.
Run Time: The remote start will run the engine for a preset amount of time.
The default run timer is 12 minutes, but you can change that to 24 or 60
you need more time, a Run Time Reset will start the run time counter again to
give you additional time.
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 alarm is triggered when armed, 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.
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.
Turbo Mode: The Turbo Mode keeps the engine running
after arriving at your destination for a programmable period of time (1, 3, 5,
or 10 minutes). This
allows the turbo to sufficiently cool down after you have
left the vehicle. It can be activated by remote control or an optional
dash-mounted activation button.
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.
Rear Defogger: When the rear defogger circuit is connected
to the alarm output, the rear defogger will automatically come on when the
vehicle is remote started. You can also manually activate the rear defogger
after the remote start is on. If the interior cabin temperature is above 55°
F, the defogger will not activate.
Pit Stop Mode: 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.
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.
Engine Checking: The 5606V has several options for checking
the engine while it is running: Virtual Tach (default), Tachometer, or Voltage.
No tachometer wire connection is required when set to Virtual Tach. When the
tachometer wire is connected, the system goes through a Tach Learning process.
If the vehicle is over-revving, or the battery voltage is getting low, the
system will shut off the engine.
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 5606V 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
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
120E5000s) or a door lock module (607451M)
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.
