I have a 1999 Honda Accord that I am installing a Viper 5900 in myself. I have all the security functions hooked up, and working. This includes: H1, Remote Start, LED, Vallet Button, Door Lock, H3, Shock Sensor, Antenna Receiver.
On the H1 harness I did not attatch "(-)activation input" to anything.
The Remote start doesn't do anything - as far as i'm concerned.
Everything is hooked up properly - as far as i know. The manual says the parking lights will flash when i push the * twice to activate R/S - they do not.
All the satellite relay constant 12V wire's are all powered and getting enough juice.
I'm trying to play stupid here get all the possible answers...
What could BE any problem for the Remote Start not work?!

What did you connect the BLACK/ white wire on the 5 pin harness to? It needs to see a ground (for neutral safety switch)
I am assuming automatic transmission.
Wherever I go, that is where I end up......

like gus1 said about the small BLACK/ white wire, it needs to see ground. also, disconnect your small gray wire. many people don't adjust it so it just sees ground which will keep the RS from working. the hood pin needs to be open circuit to work, ground to shut down/not work

Thanks for the input guys!
Yes, the BLACK/ White wire IS indeed connected to ground. I will double check of that ASAP. I have a feeling Zone 1 is being tripped and stopping the RS from triggering.
Sometimes when I unlock the car, the hood and door blink and tell me they're "open/opened."
Grey I disconnect the hood pin, well just cut it hahah. Still nothing, when i unlock, it occasionaly tells me the hood/door was opened/is open...

It's best to verify everything with your test light or meter, instead of just visually.
Since the doorlocks work, you know your remote and antenna must be both good.
There should be only three things that would prevent the remote starter from activating:
1. Hood open. Even though you already cut the wire, put your tester to the grey wire right where it enters the brain, and test that it doesn't have ground.
2. Safety switch is off. Put your tester to the BLACK/ white wire where it enters the brain, and make sure it has ground.
3. Brake on. Put your tester to the small brown wire where it enters the brain, and make sure it's NOT getting power with the brake pedal off.

Thanks, Chris. I'm going to try that, right now.
My door trigger wire is connected the dome light power, which turns on with any door open. It JUMPS on, but fades out... I think this might be a problem, for some reason. Should I find a better door trigger?
If so, what? I will check that the safeties are not being tripped, right now.

If you have the door trigger hooked up to the dome light then you need to turn off the bypass chirp.  It should be in the second menu of your programming, option five.  that might be the reason your getting the notification that your door is open. 

...half of the truth can be worse than a lie. <----Roger Russell said that..

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.
I love you guys, i dont even know you. :) Man, i'm STUPID!
I did have the neutral safety see ground! Man i'm an IDIOT!!!
Great call Chris, i knew it was something stupid like that! :)
Remote start works, and my starter engages. Engine does not start. i may have the wrong ignition wire attatched. Will research now. :)
Another question. :)
Is it important that the Factory Arm and Disarm is connected? Or is that for people that JUST install remote start.

Sorry about having so many posts:
Remote start engages, powers starter, but does not start the vehicle.
The vehicle DOES start with the keys in the run position. This tells me that my ignition wire is hooked up wrong/improperly.
Should I have Ignition 2 hooked up in my 99 Honda Accord?
The Wiring diagram from here claims it's ignition 3!
Ignition 3      WHITE/ Black        Power this or ABS Light on Remote Starter

Hahah sorry again for another post but update:
Car starts with the KEY in the vehicle, in the "pull out" position. So all the way back, where i'm able to pull the key out, is where it will allow the car to start.
The Car will NOT start without thinking the key is in the ignition.
I must now find THIS wire that shows 12V when the keys in the ignition, and hook that up to ignition 2, am i correct?
Thank you guys so much in advance for your help, you're life savers. :)
