    Need advice on my alarm...

    I currently have an Avital 2300, had it for about 3 years with no trouble. The other day i went to unlock my car and the keypad led was flashing but not unlocking or doing anything i tried and tried all the buttons, and got nothing, so ended up pulling the brain. Could it be the system itself or just the keypad? Should i replace/reprogram the keypad, or should i just get a whole new alarm??

    Did you check batteries in the remote?

    Well I only have one keypad, and already I checked and changed the batteries on it and when I did i noticed the contacts that go from the battery holder to the circuit board had popped off, so i did some soldering and its been working fine since, until now. Like I said though the keypad itself works because it lights up when I press the button... So should i buy a new keypad and try that? then go the alarm route?

    The remote COULD have come unprogrammed and you may just need to have the alarm re-learn it.

    Otherwise a power connection could have come disconnected from the alarm; or the alarm went bad.
