Have any of you installed a viper alarm,maybe 5701 or other with remote start on your own car?
The shop near me wants 499.00 installed for a python something!
They have been around a while but i dont know if its worth all that or something I can do.
If you have any hints,tips?

I've installed alot of them over the years.

Just need to take your time is all! if you've never done it I doubt you'll do it in a day. But you do learn alot. There are also tons of charts to help with the wire coding to make it a snap.

I also want to install an alarm system too! I've never done this before either but have basic knowledge of electrical systems.... hoping i can do this in a day! Just keyless and alarm nothing fancy.

I want to go with this and mod the flip key and put an ss key in it.

What about an alarm that senses the voltage drop, of a door activating the courtesy lights, raised hood or deck lid, activating it's light.

Years ago said alarms were popular for thier simple installation.

Almost no one heads the sound of a veh alarm anyways.

Thats why you get a two way alarm. It lets you know when its going off.

Anyone know where you can get a good deal on Vipers??? I paid $350 for my 5701 @ Best buy & installed it myself. I want a more upgraded one for the 91 when I get it together this spring. Want another for "WYTLTNG" too.
