I need help diagnosing an electrical problem

I have a 1986 Chevrolet Camaro and it has recently kicked out some of the accesories power when I crank it up. My power window, the entire ac/heating unit, engine fan, and fog lights are not getting any power. All
of my fuses are not blown. I did have a Viper Alarm w/ remote start installed 4 months ago and when my camaro is remote started, all the accerories i mentioned work until i turn the remote start off. Best buy says its not the alarm, its the car, my mechanics say its not the car, its the alarm. Im LOST! i did light test all of my fuses with the remote start turned on to see whats not getting power and the ones that werent getting power earlier have power (the A/C, fan, fog lights). All the fuses are getting power in remote start except for CRK? man o man... any advice would GREATLY be appreciated

If it's more than one system, and If they get power in remote start and don't get power when you turn remote start off then it's pretty open shut case. It's the alarm. But I doubt it's the alarm and more than likely then installer. Viper is pretty quality stuff(I've installed a few). When I read Best Buy I actually cringed. They are technologically challenged idiots that work at every single best buy I've ever been to. And I don't mean just one or 2 people there. I don't know what school of electronics they recieved their information from but it seems that if they all read the same book it was either printed in Greek or they're all dislexic. I have yet to meet one that actually knows what the fuck they're talking about. Why you would let them touch your car is beyond me. Unless you really don't like it to work. How ever since not everyone knows that a national chain of electronics stores is hiring complete retards to do thier installs I'll help you out as long as you promise to never never never to use them again to touch anything in your car. Buying stuff from them is okay but don't let them put it in for you. If you can read a book coherently you're better off doing it yourself. Hell you'd already be one up on them. Here's what they did(or actually didn't do). It's one of two things. They either A. tapped off of the wrong wire and placed a relay(or internal module) inline where it's not supposed to be(probably sopposed to be in parralell) or B. didn't wire an additional relay or bypass around it. So take it back to them and tell them that it all worked before they touched it and now it doesn't. The only thing that changes is when the system is in remote/not remote they are the ones that put in the remote they put it in wrong and they need to fix it. Talk to the store manager if you have to. But don't give them one more cent of your money for the job. If the manager still won't do something about it then get the number for the regional/corporate office and be sure to get everyones name from the technician all the way up the the store manager. Write them down if you have to. Unfortunatly you're probably going to have to get it fixed out of your own pocket by a real mechanic and then complain a whole bunch to the regional offices until they reimburse you. Personnally that's why if you want something put in your car you should go with a local install specialists, most of them know what they're doing. And the ones that don't atleast can still wire things in right using the schematic.
