Default Google and Car shops are no help

Over the past two weeks I have realized my truck as an aftermarket alarm from it auto arming and killing the ignition. That was 5 minutes of going through the checks to find out it has a alarm 'brain' box underneath the steering colomn.

Figured out its a Viper 600 ESP. ( Old as hell but free and functional )
I am in no hurry to spend 400ish bucks to get a new alarm with a couple features that this current alarm does not have, When all I need is a new key fob.

Theres lies the problem though. I cant find the RPN (replacment part number). I searched online and have found other 'optional similiar' models but unsure if they are the same thing. I know some newer remotes will work on older models and that is what I am looking for, but without the RPN I dont know which.

I have gone to a couple local Car shops and they all just want to sell me a new alarm. and state the remote will run a 100 bucks if I want a new one, but when I ask for the RPN they state they are not sure what it is.... How in the hell do you know which remote will work if you don't have a data base with the codes telling you what is capatable with what.

I would contact Viper directly. When you're getting the run around from suppliers it's often best to go to the source

Already sent an email. Still waiting on a response from them. I thought maybe someone would have a better understanding of the systems and could offer a quick response.

Another thing to try is a little searching at the12volt.com. That site has lots of info on car alarms and installations, you might come across info on the fob and obtaining a replacement.

Found the RPN number in 5 minutes from the 12volt website.
Thank you! I searched all over through google and local Alarm shops.

FYI its 476V. Cost me 7 bucks verse the 40 bucks for a remote from one of the shops or 400-800 for a new alarm. (Quoted with install I much rather install myself and save the cash).

Glad to help out man, can't beat 7 bucks either. That site is not as new and streamlined as most but its been my go-to for years anytime I hit a wall with this kind of stuff.
