Solution 1
1) Remove the driver door panel 2) Remove the lock 3) Remove the switch from the back of the lock 4) Pull the switch cord assembly to the bottom of the door cavity 5) Unplug and remove the switch assembly from the car 6) Either (a) short the female end of the plug, or (b) ground the striped wire to the car door.

Solution 2
Normally, you would insert the key in the drivers door, turn left, then right to disarm and reset it. If yours is malfunctioning, you can disable it for good by doing the following:

The FACTORY ALARM DISARM WIRE IS purple/yellow |-| in the driver kick panel area, at the black plug.
Once Located, splice into this wire with a simular guage wire, and put it to a solid chassis ground. This terminates the alarm functions entirely.

Solution 3
Go to the passenger side door and lock/unlock 2 or 3 times to deactivate the alarm switch in the door latch. If battery is weak/low it wont solve problem, must replace battery.also check for broken hood pin switch($5.00) as they are likely to be broken on a 94 veh. and when failed will cause security system to activate causing security light on dash and no start condition/lights flashing etc

SOURCE: engine cranks will start fine with key remote will not start it

Did it ever work as far as you Know? Some vehicles have a coded key and if the key is not in the ignition at the time the remote is activated it will not start. Some systems have a key hidden in the system and some have a bypass. It is hard for me to tell you which you have as not being the installer. You may have to contact Avital or go to thier web site for more detailed info.

SOURCE: 1996 Explorer anti-theft system won't disable

Try re-setting the computer...Disconnect the negative terminal of the battery and leave off for 5-10 minutes. This will allow the computer to reset. The charger may have interupted the signal or something.

If this is the factory alarm going off when you remote start the vehicle, the factory disarm wire is not connected. If you would list the year/make/model of the vehicle, I could direct you to the wire.

Try finding it. Under dash probably.. Unplug the two fuses first, sometimes that works, if it's a high end viper or dei unit then you can trace the wires to the starter. #12 gauge wire pink or red. Should see where it's tapped in or relays hidden under the panel. It shouldn't cost too much for electrical guy to find and disable

Avital alarm wont lock or unlock doors

If the remote is arming and disarming the alarm then, it should be locking and unlocking the doors as well. The door lock and unlock wires need to be connected. Are sure that they are connected? Do the door locks work with the switch?

Uninstalling a remote starter/ alarm system in a 1997 Yukon

Depends on the type of remote. Most common fix 1. Take off the lower drivers side kick panel. 2. Locate the black remote box. 3. You should see a thick yellow wire coming from the steering wheel area that has been cut and then spliced to go into the remote box. This is the feed to starter relay and will have voltage when key in in start position.4. reconnect the yellow wire back together bypassing the box. 5. Find the red wire( power source) that goes to box and disconnect it.

System should be bypassed

I need to know how to wire a led scanner to an avital 5303. The light has a red pos, black neg, and yellow that says brake. i want it to come on when the alarm is activated

Forget the yellow wire. Its for wiring WITHOUT an alarm. Connect the red to a fused 12 volt and the black to the orange "ground when armed" of the Avital 5303.
