March 16, 2007Sup, Im new to DTW but seems like a cool place. Anyways I am looking to buy the Viper 5900SST Remote starter and alarm. I was wondering if anyone else has used this system and if so how well does it work? Also if anyone has installed one before how much work am i looking at?
November 11, 2007I have one new in the box that I never installed. I actually purchased it for my 06 Jeep Commander. If you would be interested let me know I have several of the optional sensors as well.
November 11, 2007I've had mine for 2 or 3 months now, no problems....the 5900 is the same as the 791xv but with a 1 mile range. I had the 791xv on my old truck and I still have it on my Ion. Never had a problem with the 791, the only thing I don't like about them is the illuminated entry doens't work, the light will come on when the door is opened but not when you unlock them. Really not a big deal but it pisses me off.
Oh and the 1 Mile range is under rediculously ideal conditions.....I haven't gotten it to work more thanabout 1/2 mile..maybe less
November 27, 2007I have read that Viper and Python are both made by DEI, but which one is better?
The Python 990, the Viper5900, or the Viper791xv?
Any opinions? Is one of them more capable of adding accessories, such as remote windows?
November 27, 2007same stuff, different name
02 2500 Brush Edition Who needs to go fast?
November 27, 2007Python, Viper, Clifford....are all DEI and they all have the same products but have different model numbers. The Viper 5900 is the newer version of the 791xv, the only differnce being the 5900 is SST and has a 1 mile range
December 15, 2007I have the viper 771 and I just love mines. I also have the remote start in it, I like that because if it cold outside you can start it from inside you house or I start my at work. The only thing that I didn't like is that it took them thirteen hrs to install it but they did do a good job. I was told that the dodge have alot of relay and you need to get some bypasses to it so many bypasses.
January 11, 2008Just installed The Viper 5900 on the Nitro, its awesome!!!!
I say you should get it!!
