This remote starter is a great value with all the necessary functions that most people desire. Great transmit range on the FOBs.

I installed this remote starter on my 2010 Focus. This was a simple installation on my Focus (once I was able to locate the vehilce's wire locations). That part took me longer than expected since this was my 1st remote starter installation.

I paired this Viper 4103XV with the Omega OL-MDB-ALL bypass module. After performing the 3rd remote start (so that I could verify the safety shutdown operations) the engine shut off and set off the car alarm. I noticed that the LED light on the Omega had gone off. The Viper was no longer communicating with the Omega module.

The customer support for Omega is terrific! They were able to help me determin that the data bus from the Viper remote start was not sending good data to the Omega bypass module. I had to remove the data mode cable and install the hardwire connector.


FYI: If you ever need to know which wire from the Viper 4103XV remote starter is the "grounded while running" ouput: It is the BLUE wire (Pin #1) on the 4-pin satellite harness. It is labeled "(-) 200mA STATUS OUTPUT". You will need to connect this wire to the Omega's "grounded while running" input when using the hardwire mode.

I purchased this Viper Remote Start for my 2007 Honda Ridgeline. Had it professionally installed with no problems. I've had it since 12/12 and it works every time! Turns off after 12 mins to save fuel, unlocks and locks my doors and the anti-theft devise is a blessing. Several times I have forgotten to turn the key in the ignition and the engine stalls out as it's suppose to do so you don't have to worry about someone stealing your vehicle. I am very pleased with this remote start and the brand is excellent.

I chose this remote starter because I liked the ergonomics of it. I did learn that with remote starters only certain places are allowed to install certain brands. Best Buy installed mine and I am grateful to have it. I did lose the sounds of the remote lock/unlock and also my car alarm. However, I would trade that for having a remote starter, especially during the winter, any day. You do have to make sure that you turn the key in the ignition on otherwise the car will die and you have to restart.

I bought this as a gift for my aunt. She finds it very easy to use and love the control design. She parks far from where she works so the range is good enough for her. I recommend this product to those who want an easy and simple remote starter.
