98 civic ex MT, Viper 5204v
So I just finished hooking everything up on my first install but cant get the car to start with the key or the remote. Everything works except starting the car. I think I may have wired something wrong because the unit dies when I turn the key to the second position. Here is how I have wired the ignition. I can also post the other wiring if it is relevant.
H3/1 -> BLACK / YELLOW (ignition)
H3/2 -> white (const 12v)
H3/3 -> WHITE/ black (accesory)
H3/4 -> BLACK/ white car site (starter)
H3/5 -> BLACK/ white key side (starter)
H3/6 -> white (const 12v)
H3/7 -> yellow (ignition 2)
H3/8 -> not attached
H3/9 -> white (const 12v)
Also, the neutral safety switch is in the on position.
Here is a link to the ignition harness for my car:

Any ideas on what I may have done wrong?

What you list above looks to be correct. Not sure what you mean by the unit dies when you turn the key to the second position.
Have you tested wires function before connecting them? With the 5204v disarmed you should be able to start the car with the key.

We'll I was trying everything to get it started, and I found that when the key was in the second position I couldn't arm/disarm and the button on the antenna did nothing.
I have not tested the wires myself, I was just going off of what I read in multiple places on the internet. I'll have to try that today, just to be sure.

If the second position is IGN then of course the remotes won't work, IGN overrides the alarm.

Ok thanks I diddnt realize that, it's my first install so I'm learning as I go. Do you have any ideas why it might not be letting me start using the key? I know theres other wiring that could be preventing the remote start from working, but I'm at a loss as to what would cause me not to be able to start it normally.

Show all your wiring and where it's connected.
Check the engine bay fuses, you're looking at a 40-60 amp blown fuse.

Why is the H2/16 BROWN / black horn output hooked to your brake wire
Further what is a "dizzy" and why is it hooked to H2/23 orange (-) Accessory output?
I also have to ask, manual trans? Have you bypassed the clutch?

According no my manual H2/16 is "+ brake shutdown input", and H2/23 is "tachometer input". By dizzy I meant distributor, the blue wire coming off of it is for the tachometer.
Its a manual trans. No I have not bypassed the clutch yet, I totally forgot about that
