Enjoy the convenience of remote starting

You can start your car from up to a quarter-mile away with Viper's Model 5105V remote start and security system. Just push a button on the remote, and your car will be warmed or cooled just to your liking when you get to it. The remote also arms and disarms the alarm, unlocks the doors, and pops open the trunk if you want.

Cold weather dwellers, you can program the 5105V to keep the engine warm by starting your car automatically every three hours, or whenever the temperature falls to zero degrees Fahrenheit.

Security features

The 5105V system will stop most thieves from stealing your vehicle and the property you keep inside it — you'll feel secure no matter where you park. The system uses features like Starter Kill, which prevents hot-wiring. It also includes a dual stage shock sensor with a 6-tone siren that'll provide a warning chirp if someone lightly bumps your car, and then unleashes an ear-splitting blast if the intrusion continues, chasing away crooks and attracting attention. Viper includes in this package a control center with a valet switch and a bright LED status indicator that warns would-be thieves that there's a security system onboard.

Expandable system

Four auxiliary channels allow you to add functions like turning on interior lights or the rear window defogger. The Model 5105V system is also compatible with any Viper SmartStart module, which allows you to start your car via your smartphone with no limit to the range, as long as you have phone service.

Important Note:
We offer a databus interface module that can save you lots of time when you install a Viper remote start system in most vehicles. Chat or call us at 1-888-955-6000 to see if the interface will work with your vehicle.

If you know how to use a multimeter and have experience working with your vehicle's electrical system, you should be able to install this remote start system yourself. If not, please consider having your system professionally installed.

To ensure vehicle compatibility, please enter your vehicle information in OutfitMyCar. Your order will be reviewed by our Car Experts group, who will contact you if further information or recommended accessories are needed.

Security Features

Overview: The Viper Model 5105V 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 4 auxiliary outputs to provide keyless entry and other convenience features. The unit is covered by a limited lifetime warranty.

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.

Automatic Transmission Vehicles Only: Remote starters on manual transmission vehicles operate differently than those with automatic transmissions. For this reason, the 5105V is recommended for vehicles with automatic transmissions only.

Remote: The Model 5105V includes two 4-button transmitters (7145V) with 1-way operation and an operating range of up to 1/4 mile. The remote has dedicated buttons for Lock, Unlock, Remote Start, and Aux/Trunk. Holding two buttons simultaneously allows you to reach additional levels of commands, auxiliary channels, and programming options. The 7145V remotes are powered by a CR2016 battery (installed).

Encryption: The system features 66-bit code encryption to prevent remote cloning and code-grabbing.

SmartStart Compatible: The Model 5105V 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 VSM300 and VSM350 (with GPS).

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 adhesive.

D2D Port: The hideaway Control Module (brain) is equipped with a 4-pin D2D port which allows the 5105V 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 your vehicle.

Failsafe Starter Kill: To prevent your vehicle from being stolen, the control module has a built-in relay which, when activated, 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 5105V 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 set at 30 or 60 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 alarm blast.

Auxiliary Outputs: The 5105V has 4 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.

Note: Your vehicle must be compatible with the feature in order for it to be controlled by the alarm system.

Silent Mode: If you want to arm or disarm the alarm without the siren chirps, you can first put the system into Silent Mode.

Active or Passive Arming: The 5105V can be armed actively or passively. Active arming means that the alarmed is turned on by pressing the Arm button on the remote. With passive arming, the system is automatically armed 30 seconds after the last door has been closed. The Forced Passive Arming feature passively arms the system after one hour, even if a protected entry has been left open. This is useful if a door has been left ajar when leaving the vehicle. Similarly, Active and Passive Door Lock control locks or unlocks the doors at the same time the security system is armed or disarmed.

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.

Valet Mode: You can prevent the system from automatically arming/locking 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 5105V can accept a wide range of convenience and security accessories:

  • Field Disturbance Sensor (item # 607508D): Detects movement inside or just outside of your vehicle.
  • Audio Sensor (item # 607506T): For glass impact audio detection.
  • Tilt Sensor (item # 607507M): Monitors the tilting of your parked vehicle (caused by an attempt to jack up or tow your vehicle)
  • Ultrasonic Sensor (item # 607509U): Monitors the airspace inside your vehicle to detect subtle window tampering.

Remote Start Features

Remote Start Overview: The Viper Model 5105V can start your car and run it by remote control from a distance of up to 1/4 mile for a preset amount of time. The remote start should be used on vehicles with automatic transmissions only.

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 minutes. If 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: When the remote starter is installed in a diesel vehicle, the starter can be set to delay by a few seconds before engaging. By default, the engine will start when the "Wait-to-Start" indicator on the dashboard goes out. You can switch the Diesel Start Delay to a timed setting of 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. The feature can be activated by remote control.

Timer Mode: The Viper Model 5105V's Timer Mode automatically starts the engine to maintain battery charge or combat extreme cold when parked for an extended period of time. The Timer Mode feature starts the engine every three hours for a maximum of six starting cycles. The Timer Mode run time can be set to 3, 6, 9, or 12 minutes. Another method of keeping the engine warm during extreme cold is the Temperature Start feature. Every three hours, the temperature is checked to see if the threshold of 0°F has been met or exceeded. If met or exceeded, the vehicle remote starts and runs for the programmed time, and will check the temperature again in three hours. If the temperature threshold has not been met, the remote start does not activate.

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 5105V 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 5105V 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 120E5000s) or a door lock relay 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 the button.

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.

My car was installed with viper model 4205v. In order to work with my phone, does it need another viper product? Where to find the ID# in my installed remote
[ Anna  Dec 05, 2015 ]
1 answer
That system can work with the SmartStart modules we offer and those are needed to make the 4205V work with a smartphone. These models vary over time so I recommend calling an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 to see which are available now. I cannot find information on where to find the remote ID# nor can I find any listing of it in the manual. You may need to contact Viper on 800-876-0800 for help with that.
