Start off by calling the shop that installed it, ask them just because you can. Now a more useful answer- check the remote's surface and be certain nothing sticky is on its surface and whether or not it's possible for something sticky like a drink or kool aid from one of the kids, etc. this happens often and causes sticking amongst other issues.
If it looks good, go ahead and replace the battery in the remote, probably a CR2032 or similar but you'll have to consult your manual or look online for a manual that is compatible with your particular model of Viper Remote Start/Alarm. Worst Case- maybe you'll need a remote but they're inexpensive on eBay. If it was professionally installed, take it to them and tell them the issue, they'll tell you what's going on. If it wasn't, you might double check the wiring while looking at installation instructions and a wiring diagram that are specific to your model- if you're it comfortable doing this ask friends/family, etc. if they cannot check(only if they're qualified) or if they can recommend anyone to help, just do your research and talk to a few people/shops before making any decisions on who you'll let work on it to be certain they're qualified. A respected Automotive Accessorry Shop, or a High End Electronics Store that provides installation is better than a typical garage for something like this since they specialize in stuff like this and install these systems all day/every day, they see these issues all the time and it's more than likely an easy fix! Good Luck- if this helps feel free to click the button to let me know this was helpful. Leave a Review or Follow Me also if you'd like, I deal with auto/mechanical/electrical and technical issues mainly. Thanks again- Have A Great Day!

You should need 12V of DC Voltage at about 5mA which is equivalent to .5 Amp or 1/2Amp. 1000mA(milliamps) is Equivalent to 1 Amp. See the included pics- one is of my Charging Unit for a Nearly Identical Jumper Box. Hopefully this helps.

You can use a AC/DC adapter as pictured and it's ok to use one with a higher amp output, but you can't use one with a lower amp output or it simply won't charge.

Usually, this is a sign of your fob's battery life reaching it's lifespan, so get a CR2032 Battery at any local store and swap them out. No Worries, Easy Fix, Have a Great Night!

A hard start could simply be a malfunctioning temperature sending unit, believe it or not. When the engine is not warm, the sending unit, when the switch is turned on, will tell the computer to place the engine into cold start mode. Kinda like using the choke on an early engine. This cold start mode puts additional fuel into the cylinders and advances the engine speed a little, so it doesn't stall, and the engine starts easily. Once the engine is warm, the temp sending unit will tell the computer to take the cold start mode off and into normal run mode. If the temp sending unit is working properly, that is the normal procedure for the computer to do things. If the temp sending unit/sensor is not working at all, the computer doesn't get the "cold start" signal. Therefore, you need to check said sensor and replace it. Then it will start just fine.

I would sit in car and attempt to use remote start. Listen for relays and/or alarm brain to click. It could as simple as the remote start relay.

to let you know it is ACTIVE.

is it correctly connected to the battery? Red cable from charger to POSITIVE pole on battery? Usually the F06 display dissapears after a few minutes while the charger analizes the battery.
