My installer told me that all the Viper 5902, Python 1091, and Clifford 70.7x models were being pulled from the shelf because there is a problem with the 2-way remote's frequency being to close to another band and it was causing interference problems.

Apparently, this came from the mouth of a Directed representative visiting the resaler's shop to pick up all the Python 1091s he had. He went on to say that those with problems with the 5902 / 1091 remotes would be exchanged for the remote from the 1091 until the new remotes are released in April.

The new alarm to replace the 5902 / 1091 / 70.7x is supposed to be called 597i or something like that, will have 9 auxillary outputs, and will require the computer device to program so non-authorized installers are less likely to have the equipment.

My question is, does this sound correct or is it a bunch of hockey? If correct, can you tell me more about the new alarm coming out? I am trying to decide if I should wait for it. I want the extra outputs but haven't figured out what they are used for yet!

i think it causes interference with the gas pedal causing it to stick or suddenly accelerate


jk.


i aint got a clue. dont really care to have a clue on it either. alarms are pretty much a waste of money nowadays no one listens to them....and thats coming from a cop. people pay more attention to a house alarm of course but stand in a parking lot sometime, hear an alarm and see who looks around....most people just hit the panic button to be cute or find their car so it just is like crying wolf all the time. plus, i hate seeing a nice truck with a crappy siren going off like they went to pep boys. makes it look cheap to me for some reason. i dunno. but hey. if u want an alarm by all means get ya one.

The extra outputs are just that, outputs that you can hook up to trigger something like strobe lights, window roll up, pop your hood, cause your airbags to inflate etc.

The outputs are usually negative trigger but some are positive.

This is what you do so taht your alarm does not sound like everyone elses:

Take your siren and open it up. YOu will see 5 traces on the circuit board. Each trace is for one of the 5 rolling sounds you hear when an alarm goes off. By cutting 4 of them, you will have one sound all the time. This will distinguish your truck from everyone elses. WHen I installed mine i had two sirens going. I cut 3 traces off one and the other i cut 4 traces. I always knew which was mine.

You can also trigger an airhorn to your truck also in conjunction with your regular siren.

I agree that no one listes to them, but I disagree that they are a waste of money. Especially, if they are a two way alarm that will alert you if someone is breaking in your truck. My truck sits in the driveway 50% of the time and I live in the city so I am glad I have it. Someone breaks in my truck at least I can interupt their progress so they don't take everything in the truck.

Thanks for the replies guys. Exhaust Depot got my plan, I will be hooking it up to air horns AND the regular siren.

So noone has any ideas on this mysterious problem or the new Directed lineup?

I'll start a separate thread about cool ideas for the auxillary ports.

Theres only one alarm ive seen that got alot of attention. one of the guys who does installs on some of the PD cars around here (not our city, we do ours in house, this guy works for one of the companies that sell it too), bought hidden strobes and LEDs and the siren package and hid them all on his truck. when his alarm goes off its a real police siren with flashing lights. now that one i'd love to see the panic in their face hahaha

could be true...the last time a color remote came out from directed...it gotten recalled twice, and they just discontinued it...i think it might have to do with interfering with the new SmartStart they offer, because the service has been down a lot. Maybe a software upgrade? i'll check with my regional rep tomorrow when i get into work

Good luck with that one..... My installer originally tied mine to the my Stebels, which would have been a good idea, but it was so freaking lound that I asked him to disconnect it. It would definitely attract attention....... Instead, I have the back-up siren (515R) that goes off with the main siren, so if they cut any power wires, it continues to go off....

You'll need an aux port for your tailgate, sunroof, rear slider, front, and rear windows and then the defroster. Of course, you could tie all your glass together so they all open/shut/vent together...... lots for you to think about.....

Wow that would be awesome! I could see some one stealing your catalytic converter then the shock sensor trips causing the airbags to deflate. lol.

Hah! Ok ok. I'll have to have it installed myself. I don't think the strobes are a big deal. I see a lot of private highway contractors with them. The siren though... Might be an issue...

What are you doing with the tailgate? You would have to do the power tailgate lock mod right? I am in Texas so I probably don't need the Defroster... I vaugly recall someone talking about defroster issues when remote starting. Not sure I want to open that bag of worms...

yeah the strobes arent an issue. the red and blue LEDs are kinda a no no, the siren is certainly an issue but if its only wired to the alarm and u can prove it then who cares hahaha.....
