I asked the installer why this is happening and he said I needed new batteries for my remote. Well, I have had the alarm for 3 years now, but the batteries were probably fine in both of my remotes. But I replaced the batteries anyway and of course the problem still occurs with both remotes (one which has been kept in the closet for most of the time). Sometimes I can sit right next to my car pressing the arm/disarm button repeatedly and get nothing but usually it works on the first attempt. I pulled out the factory keyless entry remote and it unlocked the doors every time when the alarm remote would not (this fact proabably doesn't mean anything .

So, could this problem be caused by the recent backup siren replacement or is that just a really big coincidence? Unfortunately I paid to have the alarm system installed for me so I don't quite know where things are or how it's wired. I'm hoping someone has some suggestions for me and can tell me what's gone bad so I can replace it. Not knowing how long it will take to get into my car is quite frusturating .

*I don't recall the exact viper model or backup siren model I have but I can find out if needed.
Do you have the white remote or the blue remote?

The white remote comes from the 790xv's and suffered this common problem where your remote will receive but won't send. I forgot what the exact problem was but it has something to do with a particular connection on the circuit board. Over a period of time with the remote in your pocket, it would become detached.

The 791xv with the blue remote suffered the same problem.

You have to replace the remote. Back up siren is not related to reception.

Also, just for the process of elimination, ask your installer to change out the antenna.

Car alarm!

A car alarm is an electronic device installed in a vehicle in an attempt to discourage theft of the vehicle itself, its contents, or both. Car alarms work by emitting high-volume sound (usually a siren, klaxon, pre-recorded verbal warning, the vehicle's own horn, or a combination thereof) when the conditions necessary for triggering are met, as well as by flashing some of the vehicle's lights, and (optionally) notifying the car's owner via a paging system and interrupting various electrical circuits necessary for the car to start.

Before when don't install a car alarm. There is time that our car was attempt to be car napped.

So we decided to put on. Now...where ever we are, where ever we park, we have peace of mind.
