viper 5901 install problems

Ok so I kind of regret doing this alarm...slightly..I can't stand to have anyone else touch my car so if it wasn't me installing there wouldn't be an alarm. I got everything hooked up where I think it should be (reassuring, I know). I installed the alarm/remote start and a xk06 module to retain the vats. My car turns on but won't start (just clicks). Nothing on the alarm works except the trunk release. The xk06 light comes on but doesn't learn the key (flashes when I plug it in, lights when I hold the button but when I turn over key it doesn't flash like its supposed to.) The control module (?? I think thats what its called, its the antennae and light and button) doesn't light up at all. Any Ideas??? Thanks guys

Thanks Jet, I got it now though. It was my xk module. Change a little bit of the wiring around and its workin great now. Love the alarm so far. Haven't had a chance to test distance or sensitivity yet (I try my best not to harass the neighbors).

i was checking out this alarm on ebay. i knwo viper clifford and avital are all made by the same company... but my question is, why does the viper 5901 have 2 different transmitters. are both of these needed to carry? seems bulky in the pocket

No only one is needed. They're just too cheap to give u 2 lcd remotes. If I remember correctly the non lcd remote is still 2 way. Someone on here in another post said that they are coming out with a new version soon that has a color lcd. I like this one though, the remote has like 8 different backlight colors to choose from.

pm me your email and I can send you the PDF of the manual.

Not sure on the distance but I know the 1090 that I have sucks and I am going to ditch it for the new version 1091 or the viper 5902. But 5901 I heard is a great alarm.
