So I just installed my alarm in my dodge ram, everythings good so far. i need to play with the shock sensor settings because right now I can hit it really hard and it doesn't go off.

I have a huge issue right now, the led is blinking while i drive at night and is very obnoxious. is it supposed to be on while i drive? its annoying blinking right there. during the day, no issue, night its bad.

Sounds like a wire isn't hooked to maybe the ignition wire. What type of flash is it. How many times in a row does it flash or flash pause flash etc..?

You probably have your alarm in valet mode.

refer to your instructions how to take it in and out of valet mode.

Could be but iirc valet mode stays solid blue. Do all of the features work correctly op? Remote start, locks, and what not?

Right now everything works locks and what not. Remote start is not hooked up yet,thats tomorrows task, but when I drive I beleive the led blinks 3 times.

also, i can slam my hand and bump in to the bed of the truck or the cab and the alarm doesn't go off. I know my zone sensor will make it go off, but i want the alarm portion to do its work also...

Don't know about the light being on even while driving but to adjust the shock sensor have the door open unarm alarm and while its like that hold the function button down for about 10sec. It will go into the menus and use the aux and remote start buttons to scroll up and down menu, when you get to sensor adjust press function button again and you should see the level of sensitivity The default is 7 and you can take it to 15 by using the aux and remote start buttons on remote to adjust. when you adjust to different number press function button again and the alarm should sound once to confirm setting, get out car close door and arm the alarm. Give it a few seconds to sit then go tapping around car. Repeat until your satisfied with warn away and full alarm triggers.

The light should only blink about 1sec apart at night when armed. Heres an example of different flashing. If something triggered alarm but you didn't rearm it the light will blink three times fast then a pause then blink three times over and over thats to let you know that the shock sensor has been tripped. The weird thing is that once you turn the key forward it should reset brain and whole process starts over. You have gotten far putting it in, if I were you recheck all your connections, most likely its an easy fix before you start taking it all out. Good luck.

either wire it up on a kill switch or take it back to the shop and tell them to fix what they fucked up. :peepwall:

OP installed it himself, He just needs to recheck all the connections are going to the right spot.

Truedef you should look up your truck over at

the ignition wire on a 5901 is in the main 8 pin power harness. the old vipers had a yellow ignition in the flat white harness. Hook the pink wire up and that should sove the problem. If the led is on after you disarm, it means that a zone has been triggered. If the pink ignition wire is connected, when you turn the key on it will stop the led from flashing. Hope that helps you.

On my system, my module should cover that portion. I should just have to match up a pink wire with a yellow wire off the module. My module was plug and play for my car.

what year ram and what bypass module are you using? Sounds like that ignition wire isn't powering up to the alarm, as if the alarm isn't seeing 12 volts when you turn the key on.

2006 Dodge Ram 1500 Sport 5.7 Hemi with the CHALL module. Viper 5901 System. I don't have the remote start wires added in yet, I don't know which ones to wire where right now. I am using the CHALL module.

Back to the theory of you missing the ignition wire.. When you arm it does it chirp.....then chirp again after a short delay? Is so then a zone was set off and it won't reset without acknowledging the key being turned. You also can't program and features with it

When I arm it, it just chirps and locks. No chirp and pause then chirp. The stock lock honk also honks with the chirp. When i unlock, it chirps. I am thinking I need to apply the ignition wire and when i do that, the system will stop the blinking.

I just wanted to add this, its what I just found.

For people using viper 5901 and chall and a dodge ram like me:

Connect the heavy gauge remote start harness to the Viper. You will only use the Pink wire in this harness. On
the CHALL module, plug in the main harness and connect the YELLOW wire in this harness to the PINK wire on
the Viper harness. This is just used to tell the Viper that the ignition has been turn ON.


I DO NOT PLAN ON wiring my parking lights, instead. I want to get some other after market lights. Any suggestions? I am thinking of mounting several on the bottom of some sort. Any suggestions are welcomed.

I would wire the parking lights. All you have to do is use one of the auxiliary connections for the other lights, and link it to the remote start, so when you remote start it will activate aux 1 and turn whatever is on that too. Just my 2 cents. you do all that through programming. I have my headlights hooked to aux 4. Radio to aux 2, and some bluelights to aux 1. When I remote start it turns on the blue floor lights, disables my radio, and turns my headlights on (I am gonna disable that though, as its annoying, lol) I disable the radio because I have an audio glass break sensor, and if I forget to turn my radio off, it sets my alarm off. Plus I hate coming up to my van hearing it from 50 feet away and people looking at me like I am crazy, ha ha
