Impreza WRX Question/help from the few who work at dealerships

I recently ordered the "teardrop" keyless entry remote for my 05 WRX; it came in today. I ordered it from a place OTHER than the dealership because they wanted WAY to much for the remote. Anyway, I was able to get the OEM remote for $39 instead of $120, with the program instructions. Now, I don't know if any of you have ever programmed your OEM remotes, but it's not SUPER simple-as they'd have you believe. I've run through the instructions about 5 times, to no avail. Any chance one of you could offer up some advice? I REALLY don't want to spend the $85 dollar programming fee that I was quoted here at the Fairbanks dealership. It was worth me asking, anyway.

Getagrip would be the guy to help you. He's our remote guy. I can't program those ones. 00maddog should be able to help as well.

No red button on the back. This is the one I ordered:

There's no trunk button, though.

if no red button then just sit in car doors unlocked and all shut including trunk, cycle key ten times off to on,,, then back to acc, should honk at this point. keep trying until it honks, then open close door, hit button, open close door, hit transmitter 2 button, etc. if you only have one transmitter you can keep filling the slots (4 i think) with the same number to ensure only that fob will open it.

What do you mean, "hit transmitter 2 button, etc."?

Tried it, still no luck(horn doesn't sound). Any chance I'd have to clear any codes set by a previous owner?

Jerry isn't that the procedure for 2000-2004? His has the code inside that has to be programmed by the door switch or something right? I'll try and find the process on subaru net and post it later.

That's the procedure that accompanied the remote and I also found the same instructions online(cars101). I don't get the buzzer sound or the horn when I cycle the key(from LOCK to ON, 10x). I also don't really understand how to program the transmitter code. I understand I need to press the power lock on the door the same number of times as the leftmost digit. Press unlock when that number is programmed, etc...my issue is my transmitter code is 410AB210A. How do I program the 0's and the letters? This is assuming I can ever get past the cycling issue...
Too bad there's no emoticon for frustrated...Oh well, trial and error, I guess.

EDITED. I just realized you're is FBX. I was going to have you stop by because it takes all of 90 seconds.

Thank you, the instructions don't specify that. How about the Zero? Or is it a 10? 4-10-A(11)...? Now, if I can get the damn thing to cycle...stupid.

Worse comes to worse, I'll be down in Wasilla next weekend(leaving Thursday night for a softball tournament). I have nothing but time on Friday and I was probably going to shoot into Anchorage, anyways. Thank you, as well.

The correlation of numbers Jordy is referring to is good idea but not relevant. The numbers "410AB210A" is the part number. Nothing to do with programming.

You have the correct procedure for the progamming, BUT......
Look at page 2-15 of your owner's manual. The phrase in step #4 " Be sure to stop at the LOCK position." is incorrect. The phrase should be saying "Be sure to stop at the ACC position" This has been an error in the manuals for this type of programming since 1999.
I remember pulling my hair out teh first time I tried this programming proceedure using the owner's manual.
You can also call me at 261-0633.

So, start at ACC..ahhh. Then, it's ACC-ON, ACC-ON, etc...? If that's the part #, then where is the transmitter #? I opened it as the instructions stated, and that's the only # I can see on the board, and it's 8 alpha-numeric digits long.

No, do as the instructions say, but only change the phrase i mentioned. You still start out at OFF, but after on the tenth backward rotation of the key end at ACC, not LOCK.

The 8 digit alpha-numeric # inside the transmitter is of no consequence. If there is an 8 digit numeric # inside then that's used for programming other Subaru keyless systems.

If still having probems, come see me.

aaaaaaagh.


if it has a red button on back you enter the 8 digit (all numbers!!) code with the lock switch. if it has no red button you just program like the old 02+ remotes. there's no way to enter the letters that are in the non-red button transmitters.

keep trying the ten cycle thing, and follow the directions i posted, not the incorrect ones in the package as jake noted above the directions incorrectly tell you to go to lock, just go to acc.

My sentiments, EXACTLY. I've tried the cycle thing OVER AND OVER again, and it just won't cycle. I start at LOCK(0), turn to ON(3), and return to LOCK(0)=1. I do this 10 times, except, on the 10th time, I stop at ACC(2). Still, no honk, no buzzer, no squeek, no airplane sound, no evil laugh, no NOTHING!!! Of course I'm exaggerating a bit, but, you get the point, HAHA!!! I'll keep trying to cycle it and try not to smash my new transmitter and forget it.

Hmm. You are performing the 10x cycle thingy with 15 seconds, right?
If you happen to be in A-town stop by Conti or PM me.

Yep. Any other reason(besides operator error), that it wouldn't be going into programming mode? Worse comes to worse, I'll be in Wasilla next Thursday night and I'll swing into Anchorage on Friday.

Does it matter if it is in gear or if the e-brake isn't on?

Gear and e-brake don't matter. I'll see you Friday. I'm real curious now. You won't catch me between 12:30 and 2:00, that's my lunch.

Alrighty, next Friday it is. I'll probably be by after 2:00, as well. In the mean time, I'll keep trying to get it into programming mode.
