Default Keypad module problems....FIXED!

For those of you who dont know, but for the few months Ive had issues with starting my car, more specifically, the fuel pump wouldnt start/prime on turning the key.
I had checked plenty of things, and it was diagnosed by Subaru initially, was the Alarm module. Which I had checked by an independant auto electrician (brother), who said nothing was wrong.
Eventually, when I got the car serviced, it was re-diagnosed as the keypad module (long story on how they get it wrong the first time)
Anyways, Subaru wanted $250 for the module, said it HAD to be replaced. My brother had a look, and REPAIRED it. Now it works sweet.

So, if anyones having issues with the system, just a suggestion, it might be cheaper to repair it than replace the system/module(s).

And for the few that know about the problems Ive been having......bout time I fixed it hey??

In my case, it ended up being dodgy connections. They were all re-soldered and yay for me

Yeah, when my brother and I were pulling the dash appart checking stuff, he commented on the very poor installation/wiring for the brant system.
