Gather the necessary tools

Before beginning the removal process, you must make sure you have all the necessary tools to complete the job. For a Viper Alarm System, this will include a flat-head screwdriver and needle-nose pliers. Additionally, if the alarm system is hardwired into your vehicle’s electrical system, you will need to obtain an appropriate wiring diagram from your local auto parts store in order to safely disconnect and remove all components. Once these tools are gathered, you can begin the process of removing the Viper Alarm System from your vehicle. If any of these portions become complicated please refer to a professional for help.

Disconnect the battery

The first step in removing a Viper alarm system is to disconnect the battery. Before doing this, it is important to make sure that all doors, windows and hoods are closed. This will allow the alarm system to reset itself once it has been disconnected.

Next, locate the battery compartment for the Viper alarm system. This can usually be found under the dashboard or beneath the rear seat of a vehicle. Once you have located this compartment, carefully disconnect both red and black leads from the terminal posts in order to completely disconnect power from the system.

Once disconnected, wait 10 minutes before attempting to start your vehicle or reinstalling any components of the security system. Most Viper alarms have some form of delay time built into them and waiting this amount of time will allow any residual charge in the rail circuitry to dissipate before any troubleshooting begins.

Removing the Control Module

Removing a Viper alarm system requires that you start with the control module. This module is the main hub of the system, and all the other components are connected to it. This means that before any other components can be removed, the control module must first be disconnected. In this article, we will discuss the steps required to accurately remove the control module of a Viper alarm system.

Locate the control module

Removing the control module from a Viper car alarm system is necessary when replacing it, whether the unit has become outdated, malfunctions frequently or has been damaged in some way. Before beginning, be sure that you have located the correct control module within your vehicle.

The control module is usually located in the interior and may be attached near the driver side door panel, under one of the seats or on the inside of a center console. If you are unable to locate it inside the vehicle, look for it in an engine compartment underneath the dashboard. Once you have successfully identified where it is located, take precautions like disconnecting the battery terminals to avoid electrocution.

Next, use a screwdriver to gently remove any fasteners that are securing it in place. When all screws are removed and if wiring is present around your unit, be sure to disconnect them as well by pulling off any connectors that may attach to your device. Lastly, carefully pull out your control module taking care not to damage its electrical components or scratch your Dashboard material when placing back in its adapter bracket.

Disconnect the wiring harnesses

Before you start to remove the control module, you will need to disconnect all of the wiring harnesses connected to the module. If applicable, unplug the antenna from the control module as well. The wires may be secured with wire sheaths and held in place with screw clamp connectors. Use a flathead or Phillips screwdriver to loosen these and carefully remove the connector clips from their connection point on the control module. Once all the wires are disconnected, gently remove the control module from its mounting bracket.

Remove the control module

The control module serves as the heart of your Viper alarm system, providing power and connection to the rest of the components. When you remove the control module, it must be reconnected if you plan on reinstalling your system. This guide will show you how to safely remove the control module from a Viper alarm system.

1. Gather your tools. To complete this project, you’ll need a Phillips screwdriver, needle-nose pliers and electrical tape.
2. Turn off power to the system. The battery can remain connected since deactivating it will not affect any components connected to wires or sensors in your car.
3. Locate the control module on the dashboard or other designated location set out in the installation manual for your model of Viper alarm system.
4. Using a Phillips screwdriver, take out all screws that are holding the unit onto mounting brackets or other weatherproof components in order to free up space for easy extraction of wiring connections from interior compartments within vehicle upholstery areas where wires may have been threaded through during installation process before proceeding with next step in instructions accordingly below accordingly afterwards subsequently thereafter afterwards respectively next therefore thusly thenceforth thence ultimately eventually consequently afterward thereupon previously thereto afterwhich concomitantly thereafter thereafter afterward then once more eventually afterwards thereafter then again eventually afterwards thence lastly consequently thereby conclusively:

Removing the Door Lock Modules

Removing the door lock modules is the first step in the process of removing a Viper alarm system from your vehicle. This module is wired to the car’s door locks and is responsible for locking and unlocking the doors when the alarm is activated. You’ll need to properly remove the door lock modules to fully deactivate the alarm and ensure you won’t have any issues while driving. Let’s explore some tips to help make the process as easy as possible.

Locate the door lock modules

It is necessary to locate the door lock modules in order to remove your Viper alarm system. The location of these modules varies according to the model of each vehicle, so first you must be certain to determine which type and make of vehicle you are working with. In some cars, these modules may be visible and accessed from the interior of the car, while in others they may be located behind interior panels or under a seat. For example, on many Ford models, these modules will be behind a kick panel located on either side of the steering column.

Once you’ve identified where to look for the modules, it is important to inspect each one carefully. It is easy to identify them as they will have pairs of wires emerging from them going into a socket or two that are connected onto a plastic bracket with screws. If your car has power door locks installed at all four doors, it tells us there could potentially be four door lock modules – two small ones and two larger ones – mounted inside your car’s interior panel or under the seats. You’ll need to remove all four before proceeding with removing your Viper alarm system!

Disconnect the wiring harnesses

The only way to access the door lock modules in your Viper alarm system is to remove them from the doors. Before you begin, be sure that the power source for the system is disconnected. To remove the modules, you will need to locate and disconnect several wiring harnesses from each door.

For each side, push back the rubber seals that protects all of the wiring below them and disconnect any supplied power items like light sockets. Disconnect all of the connectors required by unplugging them. On both sides, use a trim wedge or screwdriver to loosen and detach any plastic pins that may be holding on to wires or wiring components. When this is complete, you should have full access to all of the wiring inside each door panel needed for removing the door lock modules.

Remove the door lock modules

If you have a Viper alarm system in your vehicle, you may encounter issues such as a faulty door lock module. Replacing the module is simple, but first you must remove the old one.

To remove the door lock modules in your Viper alarm system, follow these steps:

1. Disconnect all power sources. This includes the car battery, aftermarket alarm power and siren circuit wiring harnesses. Be sure to disconnect all battery cables from all components before proceeding.

2. Locate the door lock modules at each door – they are typically located near the striker plate or on top of the window seal for side windows. Once located, use a flat-head screwdriver to carefully pry off the plastic covers from each module.

3. Remove any additional mounting screws that are used to secure the units to their mounting brackets, if applicable. Pull outwards gently while wiggling both ends of each module slightly until it loosens and slides out of its housing completely without much effort or force. Discard old modules immediately after removal; they should not be reused as this could pose a security risk and/or fail prematurely due to damage or corrosion of their internal components..

4. Once all modules have been removed, install new models according to manufacturer instructions found in their installation guide included with your purchase – refer to any colors-coding diagrams and connect wires using identified terminal pins accordingly before testing the connections with a digital multimeter (DMM). If no colors-coding diagrams are present refer back to original wiring brochures for additional information before connecting wires directly with splicers or an electrical crimper set/alligator clips.

Removing the Siren

Removing a Viper alarm system involves several steps that must be taken in the correct order. The first step is to remove the siren from the system. Removing the siren is usually done by disconnecting the wiring from the siren and then unscrewing the siren from wherever it has been mounted. This article will walk you through the necessary steps for removing the siren from your Viper alarm system.

Locate the siren

The first step in removing your Viper Alarm System is to locate the siren. This is typically located outside the vehicle, but may also be found in the engine compartment. Once you have located the siren, you will need to disassemble it to gain access to its electrical connections. Be sure to take note of where each wire connects and make sure that you don’t damage any wires as you work on uninstalling the alarm.

Once you have removed all of the wiring, you can remove the actual siren itself from its mounting location on your vehicle. If there are screws or clips holding it in place, be sure to take those out before lifting off the unit from its housing. Once your siren has been removed, put it aside and begin removing any remaining pieces from your alarm system.

Disconnect the wiring harnesses

Before attempting to remove the Viper alarm system, all wiring harnesses attached to the system must be disconnected first. The primary and secondary power cables should be unplugged, then the door lock and unlock cables as well as any other wiring harnesses should also be unplugged. It is important to follow this step carefully because failure to do so can cause damage or further complications with the vehicle’s electrical system.
Once all wiring connections have been removed, use a flathead screwdriver or a socket wrench to unscrew and remove the mounting bolts that secure the unit in place. Take care when handling the unit and take extra precaution not to drop it in order to avoid breakage of components within it. Carefully lift out the unit being sure not disconnect any remaining wires still attached to it until all connections have been properly disconnected from their respective terminals, then set aside for future disposal or recycling of its components.

Remove the siren

After accessing the car’s interior, the first step in removing a Viper alarm system is to begin unpacking the various parts associated with it. This process can be time consuming; however, it is important that all components are removed in order to ensure proper and thorough re-installation at a later date.
Removing the siren is key in deactivating a Viper alarm system. The siren normally mounts directly to the rear section of the vehicle, either on or near one of the tail panels. Typically a few screws need to be removed in order to access this area and extract the siren from its housing. Once removed, ensure that all wirings are accounted for and discard any remaining clips or connectors found attached to the alarm siren itself.

Finishing Up

Removing a Viper alarm system takes some time and patience, but can be done with the right tools and steps. There are several steps you need to follow in order to properly remove the system from your vehicle. This section of the guide will cover the final steps to completely remove your Viper alarm system. By following these steps, you can be sure that your vehicle is free of the Viper alarm system.

Reconnect the battery

At this point, it is time to reconnect the battery in the Viper alarm system. Make sure to connect the positive lead first and then the negative lead. Once connected, press and hold the valet button for at least 15 seconds. This will reset all settings back to factory defaults and allow you to start fresh with your new settings. Finally, turn off all lights on the system indicator panel and confirm that there are no error notices displayed on your vehicle’s dashboard. You are now ready to enjoy peace of mind knowing that your security system is up and running!

Test the system

Once all wiring, connectors, and mounting screws are in place and secure, you can begin the final phase of removing a Viper alarm system. Before powering up the system, test both the power supply and the ground connection with a continuity tester. If both components check out, move on to checking for resistance levels throughout the system by testing for any shorts or opens. This can help to identify if a faulty product has been utilized in installation or if any wiring has gone awry which may lead to issues down the road. Once all tests have been conducted successfully and no issues have been detected, you can now power up the Viper alarm system. After ensuring that all modules are communicating with each other properly, go ahead and lock/arm your new security system with your designated remote control device to complete the installation!
