OK this is a solid DIY for how to install a Viper 211HV keyless entry system on your RS, L, OBS or any Suby that has automatic door locks.

I am writing this up because it seems that nobody else has, and when I needed the info, I couldn't find it, so I decided to try and help anyone else who wants a fantastic solution.

The Viper 211HV can also be used if you are sick of your old outdated remotes and want something a little more updated and smaller than the OEM square fobs. For $50.00 brand new, you get the whole system which includes 2 remotes.

The installation instructions included with the 211HV are pure ****, so I made illustrated pictures for even the lamest among you to follow along.
I am pretty lame sometimes, and I appreciate pictures, so I hope you do too.

Anyway, here we go:

Here is the box:




Here is what is in the box:




Here is the wiring diagram that comes in the box. I have illustrated it and listed EVERY wire that you need connect to make EVERYTHING work. This means BOTh doors lock and unlock, the corner lights flash when you lock and unlock the car, the dome light comes on when you unlock the car and turns off after 1 minute or when you lock the car, AND if you hit the lock button twice, the horn will chirp to audibly confirm you have locked the car. It is beetchen and it only cost $39.00 (Amazon) or $50.00 (eBay).






Here is the connector under the dash you need to locate. It is the same connector used by the factory (optional) keyless entry unit. It should be easy to find, and EVERY connection except GROUND, POWER and HORN will be made at this connector.








This next picture shows you ALL 4 wires that need to be connected to the corresponding wires from the Viper harness for the LOCKING portion of the install.






This next picture shows you BOTH wires that need to be hooked up to activate the CORNER lights and the DOME light.





This next picture shows the wire that you need to tap for the HORN chirp on lock, or HORN flashing when the panic button it pressed. This (BLACK) 4 pin connector is part of the multi wire harness series of feeds that come from the clock spring and turn signal switch area. You can tap on either side of this connector. I tapped the firewall side so that I could remove the clock spring or turn signal switch without having to break this connection. This is the ONLY connection I made using a "vampire" tap. I generally do not use these for anything, but since this is a short ground signal and the connector is a bit buried under the dash it was the easiest thing for me to do. Normally, I would use solid crimps with heat shrink like I did on every other connection I made during this install.





And here is what one of the remotes looks like. I happen to like them.
I tested this myself today and EVERYTHING works as indicated. ALL OF IT WORKS! So if you can connect the dots, and follow along with my pretty pictures, you can have keyless entry and some other nice features and also have an additional channel to use for an additional feature.






I plan to try and get a trunk pop solenoid of some kind and wire that in so that I can pop the trunk with the remote using the "Aux" button on the remote. I will edit this thread with those instructions as soon as I work that out.

Finally, this Viper also has a few more features that some will love.

First: It CAN send a widow signal for 20 seconds to automatically roll up the windows when you lock the doors !!!
Second: It CAN send an automatic door LOCK signal when the ignition is powered on !!!!
Third: It CAN send an automatic door UN-LOCK signal when the ignition is powered off !!!!


All three of those features require you to hook up an additional wire to a keyed power source which I have NOT done on this installation. I may go back and do that sometime, but for now, I really don't care for the additional features. All 3 of these additional features are OFF by default and need to be programmed in.

Anyway, I hope someone gets some use out of this... I am really happy to have keyless entry with NEW remotes in my widebody project and all for $50.00 shipped! Enjoy... !

Did you cut the factory connector off for this and splice the wires, or did you turn up the appropriate connector somewhere. . .
Nice job either way, I've been hunting for a (cheap) way to get a keyless entry for a while now. . .and the factory boxes are damn near impossible to find with a harness still attached. . .

Yes, I cut the factory harness from mine. I had a complete set up with no remotes and I was not about to pay $40.00 each for used remotes.

The factory set up is huge, bulky and completely antiquated. It takes up WAY more room under the dash than necessary. I wanted to get that crap out of there at all costs.

Thanks man. I have the horn figured out I think. I just need to get my horn mounted today so I can try it out.

I have a separate power distribution scheme on my car for accessories that comes direct from the battery. For ground, I always make up a ring terminal with 4 ground wire (pigtails) crimped and soldered that I connect to the dash beam with one of the 6mm bolts that holds the dash beam to the chassis. This gives me 4 ground points that I can use whenever I need one. I just connected to one of those for the Viper install.

Just finished this install.
My car is an 01 OBS and had the factory installed keyless entry/alarm system. It was doing some weird annoying things like cycling the locks and alarm at random times while driving or sitting with the engine on, it even locked me out of the car while I jumped out to open the garage door in the rain even.
I did my install a little different. Instead of cutting up the factory harness I used the connector that goes form the stock alarm box to the chassis harness. Doing it this way I was able to solder the wires outside the car making for an easier wiring job. The colors of the wires are different than in the guide but it was easy to match up the wires.
I also used the 12v constant and one ground from the factory harness connection, only needing to use two chassis ground points.
All in all this looks to be a solid and cheap upgrade from the old factory box.

For anyone else who was wondering, the white/red wire on the keyless entry connector under the dash is the 12v constant that goes to the back of the fuse box. Atleast that is the color for my 2000 forester and I imagine imprezas of the same year range. Then again, it is pretty simple to hook a tester up and figure it out.

I know, I know, I bumped an old thread. But hopefully this makes it easier for people wondering where to tap into for the 12v constant. They can tap into the same plug! And I haven't verified it yet, but I *think* that the black wire is ground (based on the wiring diagram I found that indicated the 12v as the white/red wire).

No problem guys, this was an easy project. A little frustrating at first, but this much time later the install is still flawless and works perfectly...
