Hi, I'm a retired installer who just installed a Viper smartstart in my 1966 El Camino. I bought it from my uncle who has owned the past 25 years. Could someone help me activate it? Thanks!

This is an opinion statement...it doesn't help those looking for assistance in activating their Smart Start units so please take it as just a word of advice.
The vendor that sold the SmartStart unit should be the one activating it for you. You shouldn't have to come on the internet and ask for someone to help activate a product they didn't provide. Help installing a product is completely different than activation of a product. The vendor that sold it made the profit on it, they should complete the sale by activating the unit they sold. It truly bothers me that vendors will sell product that they are not supposed to sell over the counter and not give the customer the support they need. Especially a product like SmartStart that does not function without activation. If the vendor isn't willing to activate the unit after you install it, are they going to stand behind it if the unit is defective? What happens two weeks from install if it acts up? If the vendor doesn't offer activation and after sale support with purchase...don't buy from that vendor.
Again, this is just an opinion.
Installer, IT support, and FFL. I need less hobbies.

I completely agree if you buy a unit from an authorized dealer they "should" activate the module for you even if they do not do the actual install. Problem is now a days you can find these modules on Ebay, Amazon and/or Craigslist which is where I bought mine.
Were all trying to save as much as we can these days so I don't see what the big deal is. I called a few Viper dealers here in Vegas and their quoting me some outrageous $$$ amount just to register a serial # online which should only take 5-10 minutes tops. That's just crazy. Directed needs to change that policy and let consumers register their "own" units.
