I always isolate the problem a section at a time, through the ecu immobilisers, to the primary Brant unit.

I always leave the security system intact including the main immobilisers while bypassing the faulty section.

I will only remove the Brant entirely and replace it with a more reliable Autowatch, when the Brant fails entirely and repair costs outweigh the replacement with an Autowatch.
I must say I've never seen a Brant system fail entirely. Only faulty modules and, very rarely, a faulty keypad.
Are you able to replace and reprogram a keypad module?
Its just the internet dude, its not real.
