Remote Starter Features
Overview: The Viper Model 4816V 2-way Remote Start and Keyless
Entry system can start your car and run it by remote control from a distance of
up to 1 mile for a preset amount of time. The Model 4816V 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.
Remotes: The Model 4816V includes a 1-button
transmitter (7816V) with 2-way operation, and a 1-button transmitter (7616V)
with 1-way operation. The 2-way remote receives feedback from the control module
and emits confirmation tones if the command is performed. If the feature cannot be
activated, or if the system is out of range, the 2-way remote emits a fault
tone. The 7816V 2-way remote is powered by two CR2016 batteries (installed),
while the 7616V 1-way remote has one CR2016 battery installed. Both 1-button
remotes offer the following commands:
|System State ||Press / Release ||Press / Hold (3 sec) |
|Engine Off ||Start engine ||Car finder |
|Engine On ||Unlock doors ||Stop engine |
D2D Port: The Model 4816V'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
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 (if connected) and the parking lights to flash
for 10 seconds, to help you to locate your vehicle.
Rapid Resume Logic: This Viper remote start system stores its current
settings in non-volatile memory. If power is lost while the unit is in the
locked mode, the system will maintain locked mode and recall the
stored settings from memory when power is restored.
Remote Starter Features
Remote Starting: Pressing and releasing the Remote Start button on the remote 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 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 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
Note: Turbo Timer mode must be turned on manually, and
an optional activation switch must be installed on one of the included
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.
