Viper dealer/installer/shop ?? Tink I have a ground problem

Postby X2 » November 7th, 2005, 3:47 pm

The other day, my GLX-i lancer wagon's basic Viper alarm stopped sounding (no horn to confirm arm/disarm), but the alarm function still worked fine, just no sound.

Now, being the lazy bastard I am... I haven't fixed it... but another issue started... the battery, which is a brand new Track battery, began running down if I didn't drive the car for as little as 3 days !

I have a strong feeling that the alarm problem may be linked... possibly a short or grounding issue that might be slowly killing the battery when the car is parked. I don't have time to investigate myself... where would be a good place to take the car to inspect the wiring ? I assume an official Viper dealer, but where ? East or West... HOLLA !

I know Glen's and Car Boutique sell and install Viper Alarms. I can't say if they are the authorised dealers for viper, but if they sell it, they might know a thing or two on how to fix it.

It might be the battery itself forking up, had this exact scene happening here on a car that had the alarm disabled, but it would sound when starting up only when the battery was near death, the other way around from your symptoms, but dont take for granted that the battery isnt at fault. Track isnt reliable ting anymore.

personally, i find carplus has their stuff at high prices... not alarms alone, everything in general.

u could get these viper alarms at a cheaper price from small resellers, there are a few ppl on the forums who could hook u up real good and at a small price

Any viper installer doing house calls? Remote won't disarm the alarm so car won't start.

Who are the authorised dealers for Viper alarms and have the best price? I did my last Viper install at Car Boutique about 15yrs ago
