    Default Engine Start Up

    I recently purchased an early 93 viper and have been restoring it over the past few weeks. While performing various inspections I had the battery disconnected for several days. After reconnecting the battery, the engine will turn over without a problem it just seems to have a difficult time wanting to fire up.

    I have only given it a few attempts for fear of burning up the starter. I figured I should check with some experts before I did anything I would regret. Any ideas?

    Reset the alarm. The fuel pump may be shut down.

    Definitely sounds to me like the alarm needs to be reset. Now if I could just remember how to do it? If you haven't had the opportunity to talk to the Wizard - Chuck Tator - this might be a good chance to introduce yourself to him.

    Definitely the alarm. Take off the drivers side knee bolster, reach up to the alarm module and locate the green wire. From there I do not remember the procedure clearly but I believe you need to press both fob buttons while grounding the wire. Check your manual it should state the process clearly.

    One click of the transmitter and she fired right up.
