Well, lets go slow so we don't overlook anything.
First the ADS AL-CA should be flashed with the DBI AL(DL)-HA6 firmware. The ADS AL(DL)-HA6 firmware
is not compatable with your Viper 4806 in D2D mode.
Next, the ADS AL-CA must be set to Data Mode as shown at the top of Page 27 of the Install Guide ( #4543 ).
After that the actual bypass to vehicle programming can be done.
As you mentioned, you will be following the Type 1 Install diagram. Of major importance is the fact the the D2D
harness connection will handle all of the dashed Red lines shown. Only the necessaary solid Black lines are
This means that the Tach signal created by the bypass module will be passed to the Viper 4806 via the D2D harness.
Once the bypass module is programmed to the car, this Tach signal can be used by the Viper to properly control its'
Starter output signal length to start the engine. Of course the Viper should have the Tach Learn process completed
successfully before attempting a remote start. Here is the process :
Learning the Tach (not needed with Virtual Tach)
To learn the tach signal:
1. Start the vehicle with the key.
2. Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Control button.
3. After 3 seconds the status LED on your Control Center lights constant when the tach signal is learned.
4. Release the Control button.
Important: This unit can learn the tachometer with the analog input or through D2D
using an interface module. The unit confirms which source is used by flashing the
When programming tach learning with:
• Analog, the parking lights flash one time.
• D2D interface module, the parking lights flash twice.
If the tachometer input on the system is connected to the vehicle, the D2D tachometer input is ignored
Notice that the ADS AL-CA has a Hood Status output wire shown in dashed Red. This means that this signal
is passed to the Viper via the D2D harness. It's there and the Viper should see and use it. If the hood is open,
the Viper will not attempt a remote start up.
The same thing holds true for the bypass modules EBrake status output. It is automatically supplied to the
Viper. The Viper uses this signal as it's Neutral Safety input and will not attempt a remote start unless the
EBrake is engaged.
You have me a bit confused by this statement : " Right now I have the vehicle's ignition wire (Green) cut and
the connector side is connected to ADS ALCA WHITE/RED and PINK."
I have the feeling that you have
made a big mistake here. Please remember that there are two connectors at the ignition switch. The main
ignition wires are in one 6 Pin connector and are all thick ( 12 gauge wires ). These wires get the thick ignition
wires from the Vipers Remote Start, 8-pin connector. The other connector at the ignition switch, has 7 pins and
is the one that has thin gauge wires ( includes the CAN High and Low wires ) and is used by the ADS AL-CA. This
thin Ignition wire gets cut and has the wires you mentioned above connected. This thin Ignition wire is Brown, not
So, here are the highlights.
1. The ADS AL-CA must be flashed with the DBI firmware and you will use the corresponding DBI install guide.
2. The ADS AL-CA must be set to Data Mode after the firmware flash and prior to vehicle programming.
3. The Tach, Hood and EBrake signals are automatically supplied to the Viper.
4. The Viper should be programmed to Tach Mode ( Menu 3, Feature 2, Option 4 ) and the Tach Learn process
must be run.
5. There is no need to cut any of the vehicles thick ignition wires ( unless you wanted Starter Kill /Anti-Grind ).
6. Ensure you are making the ADS AL-CA connections on the correct 7 Pin ignition switch connector.
Soldering is fun!
