It's probably the alarm? When you try and start does it turn and die and the alarm icon flash on the dash? If so you need to have the alarm fob handy, close the drivers door and keep unlocking and locking with the fob.

Also, before you take it for a spin, the computer needs to relearn the gas position, so while the key is in the on position (but not running), depress the gas pedal about 6 times slowly all the way to the bottom. That tway the computer will know what full throttle is.

It sounds like a key fob resync issue, but that normally shuts the car off after a few seconds. Turn the switch to the on position and hold both fob buttons down until the alarm responds. Should be 5 to 10 seconds and then retry. This is a pretty normal thing to do after the battery is replaced.

As I posted above...feel free to call me as I have assisted scores of owners with this issue. YES, there is a "trick"...and it will not be published in a forum for the obvious reasons.

Glad it is running well now.

The Deltran Battery Tender Plus is what I use on our Vipers. I DO physically disconnect them before storms or if I am away. Auto parts stores carry them...some Walmarts as well. Retail price about $60.00.

JonB at PartsRack also carries them.
