Default 2002 WRX Key FOB Issue

Ive read through the FAQ and other threads and no one has had a similar issue from what I have had happen. Maybe they have, I cant find it... So here goes. A few months back I tried to get the car to let me program a FOB to it by doing the sequence to get the horn to chirp and it wouldn't chirp. Its not in Valet mode because I don't have the optional security system, just keyless entry. So anyway, I gave up and got out of the car. I was messing with the FOB and pressed a button and the car locked and the main horns beeped once. So the FOB has worked on the car since. Fast foreword to yesterday, I was trying to get a FOB to arm to another WRX and it wouldn't do the chirp either. I pressed the lock button while in the other car and it armed the WRX! I hadn't even touched the WRX in a week so no key was in it or anything and now I, somehow, have 2 FOBs attached to the WRX but still unable to get it to chirp or assign any other FOB's. Anyone have any ideas?

Anyone ever hear of this issue, I still haven't resolved it.

I'm not exactly sure what you are asking.

Are you trying to program the same remote to 2 different cars? What does the remote look like?

It seems like you are not doing the process correctly, or at least don't know if you are. Your car horn should honk when programming a remote, not an electronic beep noise.

No, the 02 WRX won't make the horns beep at all. The two key fobs that sync'd to it did so at random. The first one synced after I had got out of the car after trying to program it and it suddenly worked and the second fob sync'd to the car as I was trying to make it sync to a different WRX. They are the old school two button fobs.

What color are the buttons on the remotes?

The boards are all from 04 STi's. I had to take a few apart and put them into good cases so I have gray and the orange/blue buttons on them.

The horns should honk when you lock or unlock the car, unless the car is in valet mode or you have them turned off. Which may be the case here. With the drivers side door open, press and hold BOTH buttons for 3-5 seconds and see if the horn honks.

It could be someone had the horn turned off.

They honk when I arm/disarm the car. Also, the car only has keyless entry, no security system (looked for the box behind the glove box and found the connector still taped with the tape from the factory)

The security control module is located on the drivers side under the dash, not behind the glovebox. (I'm not sure what you saw back there)

If the horn honks when locking and unlocking the door, then it should honk when trying to program the remote. Having a security system has nothing to do with whether or not it honks when programming a remote.

It sounds more like there is an issue with either the remote or the module not picking up the signal.

I thought the alarm module was under the dash behind the glove box and the keyless entry module was above the fuse box on the driver side? That's what the wiring diagram said at least, lol. Either way the key fobs sync'd themselves and I can't figure out why

Fixed the issue! For some reason someone cut the green wire on the wiring harness going to the Keyless Entry Module. I didn't see it before because they taped over it. Once I noticed the tape, I pulled it apart and saw the cut wire. I repaired it and then I was able to sync key fobs to the car!
