Once Upon A Time...

There was a sweet little remote start who magically started your car with the push of a button, and all throughout the land the people "ooOOooohhh'ed" and they "aaAAAaahh'ed." The people were astonished and thought you to a be sorcerer with mighty powers and wondered if they could get a Viper 4103XV remote start system too. You knew that if you told them your secret you'd lose your mighty reputation but with your kind heart you told them, "I got my magic Viper remote car starter from Sonic Electronix." The people then realized you were no sorcerer; instead, you were a technologically savvy cool person who understood that a remote start system can chill your car before you get in during summer, and warm your car up before you get in during the winter. All the people then looked to you as their leader and trend setter and everyone lived happily ever after.

General Features

Security System Type
This indicates whether the product is a security car alarm product, remote start module, or a combo unit that offers security with remote start features.

Security: This means that the car alarm system is just that. No bells and whistles, just a car alarm system.

Remote Start: when installed, this allows the user to start a vehicle from a remote location. Remote start modules and security with remote start alarms often require an additional vehicle specific bypass module to complete installation.

Security with Remote Start: This means that the system incorporates both features listed above.

Keyless Entry with Remote Start
Car Alarm
If "Yes", the system will have alarm security features to help prevent vehicle theft and tampering. Remote start modules without alarm features will have "No" for this value.
Remote Start
If the alarm or remote start module has "Yes" for this value then the system has an electronic device that allows you to start your vehicle by remote control without actually being inside the vehicle or using the key. The remote start system supplies the vehicle with power and simulates a start just as if you were inside using the key. Select vehicles require additional accessories or immobilizer/bypass modules to use the remote start feature.
Keyless Entry
Keyless entry allows you to remotely lock, unlock, and open the trunk of a vehicle if that is equipped with power door lock motors (actuators) and power truck motor (solenoid). Door lock controls via the remote are found on nearly all of today's car alarms.
2-way Paging
Alarms with 2-way paging inform the user via remote vibrating/audible/visual alert when the alarm is triggered. The pager must be within range to receive the transmitted signal.
Number of Remotes
The number of remotes included with the alarm system purchase.
Number of Buttons on Primary Remote
The amount of buttons on the Primary Remote generally equals the number of functions that you can use your remote for. Some remotes have auxiliary buttons which can perform more than one task per button.
Main Transmitter Type
LCD and OLED transmitters display various screen savers, warnings, alerts and other features on the face of the remote, rather than first generation button-only transmitters. They provide more information typically and other features.
Button(s)-only with LED Lights
Sidekick Remote Transmitter Type
Some car alarms and remote start systems come with more than 1 transmitter, which is referred to as the "sidekick" transmitter. Most LCD/OLED systems come with a button-only sidekick transmitter, while select units come with an additional LCD/OLED transmitter.
LED/Display Color
The color of the LED indicator(s) on various items such as button-only car alarm transmitters, various chargers, cell phone accessories and other products.

For OLED or LCD car alarm remotes/transmitters the display color refers to the color(s) of the screen.
Number of Vehicles Supported
Some higher end car alarm systems can support multiple vehicles. This is the number of vehicles that the works with.
Number of Auxiliary Outputs
The number of auxilary outputs that the car alarm system supports. These outputs are left over from the total number of channels. They can be used to add on other options or additional features to a vehicle.
PC Programmable
Custom, advanced programming options through one or more of the following: PC, Pocket PC, PALM Pilot, Valet SW or Remote Transmitter allows for advanced controls of your alarm's functions.
Smartphone Compatibility
These are the types of smartphone systems that the car alarm system is compatible with.
Professional Installation Recommended
This will indicate whether or not we recommend going to a professional installer for this item. Some items have complex installations that should only be done be professional certified installers.
Built-in Bypass Module
Replacement Remote Transmitter
Car alarm replacement remotes are used when you damage or lose your original remote that came with your alarm. Programming of the replacement remote is required and must be done on site where the alarm is installed in the vehicle. Some remotes can be used as an additional 2nd or 3rd remote on a car alarm system.

Convenient Features

Panic Mode
Panic mode allow the user to be able to set off the alarm from the remote.
Trunk Release
The trunk release option allows for integration and control of the trunk latch. Additional parts may be required.
Valet Mode
Valet mode is a car alarm setting that adjusts system to less sensitive settings when allowing a valet to park your car and similar settings.

Remote Start Features

Cold Start Timer
Great for those on a set schedule who need their vehicle to warm up at a specific time every morning for example.
Turbo Timer
Some remote start systems have turbo timer feature which allows the vehicle to run for a specified amount of time after exiting vehicle. In turbocharged vehicles this prevents hot oil in the engine from choking up in the lines. Hard driving can raise engine oil temperatures to dangerously high levels. Proper cool down is essential for a healthy turbo and engine.
Compatible with Diesel Engines
This means that the remote start system will work with diesel engines.
Engine Start Intervals
Some remote start systems offer feature to protect your engine. The engine start interval feature will start the car at particular time intervals or when the engine has reached a certain temperature. This feature prevents the engine block from freezing.

Viper 4103XV

September 17, 2013

Like any other viper, the quality is very good. Professional install is required. Easy to use.
I have always used Viper remote starter and alarm for all my vehicles, I find that the remote for this one is very sensitive to the touch. So if in crowded pocket with keys and change and what not, there are chance you start your car without knowing, of course if you re within the described perimeter.

Love My Remote Starter

March 11, 2013

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.

Good buy

February 8, 2012

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.

Elmore, OH

Solid remote starter, but don't expect any help from Directed Electronics Customer Service.

November 13, 2013

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.

Great basic Remote Start

June 15, 2013

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.

Will the push-to-start work on a manual car?
anton w on Oct 23, 2015
Best Answer: Yes but should not be installed in one due to the fact you're relying on human to constantly keep the vehicle in neutral I have witnessed someone doing just that to a Toyota 4 runner and the wife promised to remove the shifter from any gear before departing the vehicle one Christmas morning she remote started the truck and it drove through the front porch it is not recommended but yes it will work

IS this a replacement for viper130xv?
A shopper on Nov 21, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

Technically, it is the replacement of a few replacements. That being true, do NOT assume the brain and/or remotes are backwards compatible, if That is the reason for your inquiry. Please contact the manufacture for details.
