The battery went dead in my Viper. I charged the battery & now it won't start. When the battery went dead the keys were in it so I had to push the emergency exit button.

is the engine turning/cranking over but not firing, or are you just getting a clicking noise ? you probably just need a new battery, leaving the keys in wouldnt effect anything

sounds like the ever-popular alarm problem. does the 98 have the "key-hole" in the glove box to reset the alarm? if so, do that. Otherwise, disconnect the battery. wait, and then re-try.

Sounds liek the battery cable is LOOSE or is corroded. No amount of charging is going to crank that car, if the battery isnt connected to the starter!
Rb, it looks LIKE you still have to take a liek!

I am curious how a person who does not even own a Viper could possibly comment on a thread such as this. Do you even know where the battery and starter are in relationship to each other? Why don't you take your stalking ass the fuck out of here and leave for good! :idea:

WGM, I would also check the fuel pump relay in the driver side back by the amplifier. :thumb:
