I am trying to find out how to disable the security system in my outback. Soo it doesnt interact with the new viper 5105v remote start/security system. The reason for the viper is the dealer told me the key fob receiver in the car was busted.
I have a Compustar in my 2002 OBW that I had installed at Perfectionist Auto Sound here in Anchorage, AK. Here's what I do:
1. Unlock all doors using the driver's door button
2. Make sure all doors are closed
3. Use aftermarket fob to lock/unlock/start/etc.
This disables my alarm and the horn chirps, but if I accidentally hit the lock button before someone closes their door I get the horn chirp and it arms the system and I have to unlock then turn the key in the ignition three times in a row to disable the alarm.
The guys at Perfectionist said it has to be this way because the radio frequency-only fob enabled security system can't be bypassed/integrated into the aftermarket unit like most cars.
If you want the best of both worlds you could use your factory fob to unlock/disarm your car, lock again with your aftermarket fob, then start, but I don't like carrying around two fobs in the winter and the factory range sucks.
