Viper 5704 remote start, HELP
Just got the viper 5704 remote start/security system installed on my 2008 6.4L f350 and have a few questions that I did numerous searches for but couldn't find anything.
1: How do I get the heater or a/c to work when I remote start it?? I've tried leaving it on when I turn the truck off in every possible way (auto climate control, manual fan on high, deforst floor heater, etc.) but no matter what nothing blows out when I remote start it. The light's on the dash show it's 'on' but not until I put the key in does it actually work. Frustrating because main reason I got it was to deforst frozen windshield during winter, but doesn't appear it will work...?!
2: Do I need to worry or bother about turbo timer? Read lots of people talking about it but don't know much about it.
3: The shop that installed it set runtime at 12 mins, can I adjust or set longer time without having to take it back to the shop that installed?
4: I don't have any mods to the truck (2008 6.4L f350), will allowing it to idle 10-15mins. a day cause any damage, or the 'making oil issue' i've read about?
5: I've read where the say the radio won't work until you physically put the key in, but my radio comes on when i remote start it, is this normal?
Thanks for any and all info.
