Arming and disarming a Viper alarm requires the key fob that was shipped with the alarm. The key fob has a warning light that brightens when the battery falls to a low level, and you will hear an audible "beep." The fob will continue to warn you to change the battery, until the battery finally dies. Installing the proper size replacement battery in the key fob will ensure you can control the functions of your Viper alarm.
