where did you tap for the tach?
where did you tap for the brake?


disconnect one wire at a time and troubleshoot. Keep in mind that it takes up to 3 start cycles to reset the warning light once you fix it.

...or you can take it somewhere and have them read the codes.

its a voltage miscommunication between your tcu. Adding the viper alarm might have caused this. check the connections. This happen to me once when i was using an OBD Scanner while adjusting through the gears. It messed with the voltage readings
