I've got the Viper 5901 in several cars, and recently had one of my remotes quit working. No display, no charging indication. So, I opened it up, popped out that tiny little battery, and replaced it with one from a known-good remote. The remote itself works fine, but that LioN battery is not an off-the-shelf item.
Anyone know where I can find a replacement?
I contacted the battery manufacturer (Gold Peak Industries, here in sunny Hong Kong), but the battery is only supplied as an OEM item to Viper. Additionally, they have a charge circuit built into the battery, which is another obstacle in the way of trying to use a generic replacement.
Any info would be greatly appreciated, as those two-way remotes are pricey!

Hi, I have the similar issue. I have a Viper 5901 and the battery is almost dead. It is 3 1/2 years old. I need to charge it every two days. I would like to replace the battery. I found a person in ebay that replaces the battery for $30. Viper 7752V Responder 2 Way Supercode Remote Battery Replacement Service | eBay

If I found a replacement battery, I would prefer to do it my self. Let me know if you were able to replace the battery by yourself. Thanks
