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.

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.

SOURCE: My alarm will not stop going off
I understand how important sound systems are I own one myself. My advice to you is to see if you can get new batteries for the remote. It may have gotten stuck in antihijaking mode when the remote last worked. If this doesn't work try consulting the dealer which you bought your system from.

If you have removed the brain, I don't see why you need to remove the rest, unless you just want it out of the car. Without the brain the wiring should cause no problems to your car unless there is a bad connection. If you need more info on how to remove the remaining alarm---
remove the siren in the engine compartment. Most everything else will probably be found under dash drivers side. If it has been installed with connectors, remove them at point of connection. If solderd cut at point of connection and use electrical tape to cover exposed wire. You will have one wire connected to the dome light circuit, one to the parking lights, one to a relay to disable the starter. Cut it out and reconnect starter wire. Led, a switch, maybe a button also-not hard but maybe not necessary?

check the (ground out when running) wire going into the bypass modual, it may be shorted to ground keeping the unit on

SOURCE: suburban battery keeps dying
locate the brain under the drivers side under-dash area. this may require you to undo a couple of bolts. you will need a 7MM and a 10MM depending on the year of the truck. from there you can unplug the the 6 pin main ignition harness from the brain. it may just be that the battery is no good. a trip to one of the major chain auto part stores can have them check your battery for free. Good luck.
