    I have a Viper 5901 Remote Start/ Alarm installed on my truck, I remember the tech was having some pretty major issues with getting the correct modules to get the remote start to work on the initial install.... it worked flawlessy until recently. I tried the remote start and my truck sounded very weird than shut itself off, it was almost a squeaky type of sound and sounded like it was coming from under the truck or the engine compartment, maybe even the transmission. The truck started fine using the key, yet the remote start wouldnt work after that either, I tried testing the remote start by having the truck already running then pressing the remote start button so I could remove the key and still leave the truck running, that made the truck kill itself for a fraction of a second then it would start itself up again, almost like grinding the starter, it never had this problem in the past. Can anyone chime into this or give me an expert opinion as to what I need to do?

    It's prolly not cranking long enough to fire up. I would have it adjusted.
