Remote Start Control Button?

I got a Viper 4115V1 remote start installed in my 2013 Toyota Yaris a few years ago. Recently, the remote broke. I opened it up to change the battery and realized the switch had totally fallen off of the chip inside the remote, so it's properly broken.


I got a 3rd party remote online. When it came, I tried to follow the instructions to pair it to my Viper system, but I can not locate the "valet/control button." It seems this should be a momentary switch button that is usually placed towards the bottom of the dash on the drivers side. Pictures of my specific Viper system online show this switch included in the box, and the directions that came with system talk about a control/valet button. I have even taken some dash panels off looking for this little button, I cannot find it.


Does anyone know if there is a typical location that Best Buy installers place this control/valet button for remote starters?

Re: Remote Start Control Button?

Welcome, allygogo,


Thank you for stopping by our community forums. After having a remote start installed a few years ago, I know that remote has saved me quite a bit of trouble and cold mornings. I'd be happy to help you look further into this to see how I may be able to help.


To my knowledge, there isn't a standard location where this button could be as every vehicle is a little different. Your local Autotech should be able to help you get this sorted out, though. If you'd like, I can reach out to them on your behalf to help you look into this. You can also schedule a free in-store consultation here.


Please let me know how I can best assist you moving forward!
