+1. At think I was 21-22 when I did a full sti drivetrain swap, did a few viper system install(remote start, new keyless, window up/down bottom, etc), did cluster swaps wiring, wiring for new sensor, ic spray, hardwired radar detector and bunch other things.

Willing to bet their a lot more 22yr olds out there that know a ton more than you do when it comes to this stuff. So wouldn't start a thread criticizing them.

You have 2 choices.
1. Suck it up and pay a "professional shop" to troubleshoot it(most shop work that I have seen including dealerships in my area are a joke. Only a few shops local I trust). Going to guess for them to remove components, test out the viper system might come out to about 5-10hrs work all said and done.

2. Since your a lot wiser than those damn kids in their 20s. Start testing everything yourself. Remove the viper system and anything else the car might have related, return it to oem and go from there.
