Question about Avital Vehicle Parts & Accessories
I have a 2000 GMC work truck with an Avital 5303i system in it. The remote started operating intermittently and then hardly at all. I purchased new batteries and it didn't help. I purchased a new remote and that wouldn't work so I purchased what I thought was a matching 5303 alarm with the plans of switching out the brains. What I received was a 5305L. I'm wondering how difficult it would be to pull out the 5303 and replace with the 5305. I know there are fewer pieces but I don't have the time to learn to install this so if it's more than unplug and plug I'll probably hire it out.

all alarms have disable function usually located down underneath the driver side, look for a small toggle switch or momentary switch, turn the key to the on position , click the switch once or twice to the small red l.e.d light stays on constant.

Hello, What has happened is your remote has lost its programming.. Just like with most electronics, when something is reset or powered off, or even when the battery dies ....the programming software is lost. The remote has to be reprogramed either by a dealer (suggested) or by an aftermarket outsource..Hope this helps...This could help with almost all remotes.

I have a 2000 F250 with Powerstroke and my buddy has a 02 with same engine. Both of us have had the same problem. There are two coils (look like starter coils) on top of the engine that can be seen from the passenger side of the truck. The shorter of the two, has to do with supplying voltage to the glow plugs. When this coil gets older, it breaks down causing a higher resistance in the circuit. Which reduces the volts that the glow plugs see. In turn resembles a problem with the plugs. My buddy and I changed the coils and both trucks start like new. The part cost $80-$90. and can be changed in less than 5 minutes. Glow plugs are a lot bigger job and more expensive.

Look for alarm Brain box and look for wires coming out black and red going to valet switch. to turn valet on turn ignition in ON position and press-switch or flip depending on the type of switch. If it a basic alarm just disconnect the main wiring harness to alarm box- unplug and the car should start. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

I own the same 3500 GMC 6.5 diesel truck with the same problem. We replaced the brain under the upper turbo hood and it fixed it pronto. No more shutoffs
