Clifford/Viper Smart start issues.
Hey Guys/Gals... i have a "Directed" Clifford SmartStart CS5000
It has worked flawlessly.
But I wanted to ask anyone else with it... did they tie into your opti harness to attach a wire??
I've had it for about 8 months>>no issues.
But the passed couple days...my car has been dying whenever i give it gas... throwing up a p-1371 Opti low resolution code. So i look at the harness...and the installers tied into the opti harness. .. and can you guess which wire they tied into??? The red/black low resolution pulse wire 5v.
Do you all have the same tied into your harness??
I'm not sure if they need it for the functionality of the alarm or anything else or did they just tie into it for the 5v power
I have to call the install place monday. I figured I'd see if anyone else has this alarm/wire installed to the opti harness.
So now I'm waiting for a new harness before I take the water pump off and all that jazz for a bad OPTI itself. . and is there anywhere else I can attach this wire. I really don't like tying into the opti harness.
I have already replaced the vacuum harness.
and I have a 96 BBB OBDII opti.
Thanks for any help or responses.
