Remote Start Car Alarm

Remote Start

Allows a vehicles engine to activate without physical contact from the user. This feature is useful for warming up your vehicles engine and transmission to operational temperatures. In cold climates you can have your interior hot or in warm climates you can cool it down before use. All of this can be done while in the comfort of your home or office.

LCD Remote

LCD Remote

Receive visual confirmations from your vehicles security system or remote start system. Features such as remote start, lock/unlock, arm/disarm and trunk release will appear on the remote’s screen with its current status. An LCD remote can display warning icons when the doors, trunk or hood are open. If your vehicle is tampered with, some remotes display what part of the vehicle was affected.

Keyless Entry

Keyless Entry

Performs lock and unlock tasks without physical contact with the vehicle. Power door locks can be controlled from several feet away or even within a building using a remote fob. The fob emits a radio frequency that is digitally encoded to prevent frequency stealing so no one can enter into your vehicle without your wireless transmitter.

Dual Zone Shock Sensor

Dual Zone Shock Sensor

This shock sensor utilizes warning chirps for minor disturbances and will trip the alarm if it detects more serious impacts or disruptions. Most dual zone shock sensors have adjustable sensitivity to reduce false alarms or warnings. These sensors let would-be thieves know that your vehicle is equipped with an advanced alarm system and to keep away.

Dedicated Trunk Release

Dedicated Trunk Release

This unit comes with trunk release capability and remote control integration for OEM alarm or add-on trunk release systems. Pop your trunk using your remote transmitter for convenience and ease of use. Carrying a handful of groceries? Arms tied up with luggage? Pop the trunk without using your key so it’s open and waiting for you when you arrive.

2-Way Paging

2-Way Paging

Send commands to your remote start or alarm system and receive confirmation that those commands were carried out. Obtain updates on your vehicles security status and get driver pages on the remote. If your vehicle is being tampered with, your remote transmitter will warn you and set off the vehicles alarm.

General Features

Security System Type
This indicates whether the product is a security car alarm product, remote start module, or a combo unit that offers security with remote start features.

Security: This means that the car alarm system is just that. No bells and whistles, just a car alarm system.

Remote Start: when installed, this allows the user to start a vehicle from a remote location. Remote start modules and security with remote start alarms often require an additional vehicle specific bypass module to complete installation.

Security with Remote Start: This means that the system incorporates both features listed above.

Security with Remote Start
Car Alarm
If "Yes", the system will have alarm security features to help prevent vehicle theft and tampering. Remote start modules without alarm features will have "No" for this value.
Yes
Remote Start
If the alarm or remote start module has "Yes" for this value then the system has an electronic device that allows you to start your vehicle by remote control without actually being inside the vehicle or using the key. The remote start system supplies the vehicle with power and simulates a start just as if you were inside using the key. Select vehicles require additional accessories or immobilizer/bypass modules to use the remote start feature.
Yes
Keyless Entry
Keyless entry allows you to remotely lock, unlock, and open the trunk of a vehicle if that is equipped with power door lock motors (actuators) and power truck motor (solenoid). Door lock controls via the remote are found on nearly all of today's car alarms.
Yes

Alarms with 2-way paging inform the user via remote vibrating/audible/visual alert when the alarm is triggered. The pager must be within range to receive the transmitted signal.
Yes

Awesome Product

December 16, 2013

I upgraded from the previous Avital 4103. This is a substantial upgrade and is worth every penny in comparison to the bigger brother viper. Made by the same company, Directed Electronics, so the quality is really on par with that of Viper. Only thing Viper has got is longer range but I've never had issues remote starting inside a building to my vehicle. 2-Way abilities of this setup are purely amazing, I can check the temp inside my vehicle with this so I can decide if a remote start is worth it that day among many other features. I've also got it wired up to turn on the rear defroster(get this, it turns on only if temp is below 55 F outside, freakin smart stuff) Security portion of this is just as capable as anybodies really, Viper tries to make it seem like they're special, they really aren't because after you understand installs you'll notice that all the add on sensors are just sensors, in fact viper sensors can be spliced in with this one or vice-versa. Loudspeaker is stupid loud, much louder than any car alarm from factory and plus this controller ties into vehicle's horn for an added boost. In fact the shock sensor is the same one Viper uses because as stated above, Avital and Viper are made by same people, Directed Electronics. Overall a fantastic unit and price is amazing, who cares if they aren't a certified dealer. That crap stock warranty is only good for one year and on top of that a certified installer has to install it. For about $15 extra I've got a 3 Year extended warranty that starts after the 1 year sonic electronix warranty. $200+ for just the unit at a certified dealer plus the install (another $100+ for install, your mileage may vary) So $300+ for a lousy one year warranty or $170 after adding the warranty for 4 years of coverage and you can install it no questions asked.

Awesome Remote Start!!

December 18, 2012

The Avital 5303 is an awesome remote start, and is at a really good price here on Sonic. I saw that it would be upwards of 400 dollars if i wanted to get it done for me, so i looked up some info, bought this baby from Sonic, and 4 hours later, my car starts with the push of a button, inside my house. Has a TON of awesome features and is wonderful for any car that it is added to. Oh and a side note, the remote start that sonic sends you, it is a bit different from the picture, it has a much cooler key fob that is blue. It is the newer version of the 5303. Overall, the Avital 5303 ROCKS!

Absolute best remote start out there for the best value

January 26, 2012

I absolutely love this remote start and will recommend it to anyone. I have installed over 10 of these personally and I have yet to run across any problems whatsoever. Flawless operation as long as you know what you are doing while installing it. Can't find a cheaper price from any other reputable dealer other than here unless you are able to get it for cost straight from DEI. Sonic has been great in the past and continues to do so. Thank you.

what about diesel trucks?
A shopper on Aug 9, 2014
Best Answer: This unit is able to be installed on Diesel Vehicles. The user is able to turn on the Wait-to-Start option either with the valet switch or with a Bit Writer. The Wait-to-Start timer is also user defined. The unit also has turbo timer which will allow the engine to run for a user defined amount of time. I hope this helped. If I missed anything please feel free to send me questions. Have a great day.
