    Installing a car alarm (viper 5706v)

    Post  GM B-Body Forum on Sun Sep 21, 2014 11:11 pm

    I finally decided to buy and install a car alarm, and so far im loving it. I bought the viper 5706v 2 way system, this particular model has remote start, but i didnt install that since its not of any use to me. Anyways, it has all the perks of modern amenities which i absolutely love, like keyless entry. This alarm is a 2 way system so if your alarm is triggered the remote fob vibrates and plays warning tones, says range is up to 1 mile, but i have yet to test that. Anyways on to the install, it took me close to week to install working a few hours here and there, my biggest set back was having to order relays that took 4 days. I had to buy 5 relays, 2 for the door locks, one for lock, the other for unlock operation, and 3 for the parking light flash function( 1 for the stop lights, and 1 for front right turn sig, and 1 for front left turn sig. The alarm comes with a double shock sensor which differentiates between light and heavy impacts. On light impacts it sets off a warning chirp, and heavy impacts set off the full alarm, which ive tested and works very well. On the door trigger, i couldnt tap off the wire from the door jamb that goes to the interior lights because I have dome delay and for some reason it interferes with it. I went to autozone and bought a 2 pin door jamb switch (part number: SW90) and put that on the pass side, since the driver side already had one, and what that does is keeps them separated when the doors are shut so no interference with the dome delay, works very well.  I tucked it all behind the glove box and it all fit well. This alarm retails for about 4-$500 at an authorized dealer, but i bought mine on ebay for $175.00 brand new.










    I put the antennae receiver/ status indicator on top of the rear view mirror, this is a dual vanity mirror i bought used on ebay a few months ago, I believe its from a late 80's early 90's camaro or corvette or something lol




    Heres a 2 and half min video of it in action, with my full led conversion:

    Wow, congratulations on the alarm! And nice job on the install! Do you have a link for the video? I've had a Viper sitting in my closet for 4 years but have never been able to find the wiring diagrams or instructions of anykind so it's still in the closet!

    Is the video not showing up for you?
    Ive got a wiring diagram for the 77-79s but i do believe it covers the 80-90s also on some things, but the door lock system i had to use a test light and figure out what wire went to what since the "optional" door lock wasnt listed in the diagram. Now i tapped in right at the switch on the steering column, right under the little plate with 4 screws holding it up with the air vent in it. But on mine, Black was for the horn, Dark Blue was the right front turn signal, and Light Blue was the left front turn signal. And for the tail lights, i just tapped into the brake light switch, which was White.
