Remote Start Features
Overview: The Viper 5704 Responder LC3 SuperCode SST 2-way
Security and Remote Start System (Model 5704V) will protect your vehicle with
the most up-to-date electronic technologies available, including Remote Start,
the Stinger Double-Guard shock sensor, the Neo Revenger six-tone siren, and the
Fail-safe Starter Kill. The system has 4 auxiliary outputs to provide keyless
entry and other convenience features. The unit is covered by a limited lifetime
Note: The remote start function is for fuel
injected, diesel, or hybrid vehicles only.
Remote Controls: The Viper Model 5704V features the Responder
LC3 2-way communication technology in the hybrid remote start and car security
system. It comes with one 2-way Responder LC3 Priority remote control with SST
technology (7752V) and a companion 1-way SST remote (7654V). The 2-way Responder
LC3 Priority remote is equipped with a powerful 8 MHz microprocessor running
SuperCode protocol with advanced, software-based digital encryption and function
control. The LCD remote can confirm commands with tones, vibration, text and icon
display. The SST remotes have a range of 1 mile. The LCD remote has a rechargeable
Lithium-Ion battery and includes an AC adapter/charger. The 1-way remote is powered
by a CR2032 Lithium battery (installed).
Remote Control Functions: The unique Responder LC3 remote
control has separate lock and unlock buttons, a remote start button, a function
button, and an auxiliary button. The function button allows you to access the
full power of SuperCode programming when combined with other buttons for dozens
of functions. A quick reference guide for button functions is provided.
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 other
Viper systems. SuperCode lets you operate all possible functions for two cars
using a single remote. The Responder LC3 remote provides 2-way confirmations and
notifications of many different commands and events.
SmartStart Compatible: The Model 5704V 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 VSM200, VSM250 (with GPS), and VSM50BT (with Bluetooth).
Control Center: In addition to the hideaway control module,
the system also includes a control center, which includes the RF remote antenna,
the status LED, and the valet/system override switch. Typically the control
center is mounted high on the windshield or a rear or side window.
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 5704V includes the Neo 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.
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 back of the control module, or the 2-way remote. When the
sensitivity is 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 5704V 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.
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.
Door Locks: The Model 5704V will automatically lock your
vehicle's doors when you arm the alarm, and unlock the doors when disarming the
alarm. 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 (such as
will be required.
Note: 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
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.
D2D Port: The Model 5704V'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.
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.

Remote Start Features
Remote Start Overview: The Viper Model 5704V 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 remote start can be used on vehicles with manual or
automatic transmissions. The status of the vehicle can be monitored by the LCD
on the 2-way Responder LC3 remote.
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
The unit will send a page to alert you when the run time is about to expire. 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 "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.
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.
Cabin Temperature: Using the Responder LC3 system, you can
check the temperature inside the vehicle. The LCD will indicate the internal temperature of the vehicle
while remote start is engaged. This allows you to monitor how
long to pre-heat or pre-cool your vehicle.
Timer Start/Smart Start: When parked in extremely cold
temperatures, or for a long period of time, the Timer Start feature will start
the vehicle at a specific interval (default is every 3 hours) to maintain
battery charge. This will repeat for a specified number of starts (default is
6), and run for a preset amount of time (12, 9, 6, or 3 minutes). The Smart
Start feature uses the settings for Timer Start in addition to
temperature and battery level to automatically start the engine. It the
temperature is above 100°F, below 0°F, or if the battery level is below 10.5V,
the engine will start.
Note: When Smart Start is monitoring the cabin temperature,
the climate controls should be properly set to cool or heat the cabin prior
to leaving the vehicle.
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 5704V 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.
