Remote Start Location Issues

I recently purchased a Viper 5105v remote start for my 2002 4Runner.  After many attempts at troubleshooting I have found that my remote start will not work while on an incline.  Lock and Unlock both work on hill but car will not start.

Not 100% on this.  But I had a Viper and it came with a mercury switch mounted in the hood as a safety device that would not allow the truck to start if the hood was open, or on an incline of enough angle.

Re: Remote Start Location Issues

Any idea if there is any way to adjust switch to account for angle?

Jferroni is correct just let them know when you are on an incline you car wont start and they will adjust the tilt sensor. Sorry for the hastle.
