Remote Start Install

I had a buddy of a buddy do it on his afterwork spare time over the last week and have had a few issues.
Its a Viper 5902. Its basically done, the alarm works but apparently the trigger switch is d.o.a. Its only a two wire plug/switch that plugs in the "brain". He said he tried a different switch and it worked but mine doesnt. Hit the start button on fob and "trigger switch off" displays regardless if switch is on or off position.

Called around town and no one has a viper switch, I bought a very similar switch from hardware store, same power ratings 3a/250v, 6a/125v and tried it but it didnt work either.
Ive google'd the **** out of this problem and not much on it, I read one guy looped the two wires and had success but only for a short time, I dont want to bugger anything.
Anyone have any ideas?
