Default Question about installing Clifford 50.5X alarm system on 2005 STi with remote start

Hey guys,

I just got my Clifford 50.5x today and I wish to install remote start too

I read the installation guide and it said I need to have a bypass module to bypass my immobilizer, but I am not sure which model should I buy.

Will the P/N 555L work for my car? or do I need another model like 556U or something else? Thank you very much

Liam

the 555L is for GM vehicles.

For dei parts you can use: 555u, 555uw, 556u, 556uw.

^^Yup, also you will lose one of your keys. You have to stick it inside of the module. Just the chip though. I highly recommend you file down the teeth on the key itself.

That unit will work fine. As for the key issue, the dealer will be able to make another for you. You might not be happy with the price though. Expect $100-$120 as the standard price for a new key cut and programmed.

^^I would say that's the very minimum of the range. I would say closer to $150-$200. Tell them you ONLY need a chip. You don't actually need a whole key. Just the guts inside of it. If they have some key kicking around from a different car that they don't know where it came from then you might be able to get that one for cheaper. They'll just reprogram that chip to your car.

Not sure how it is in subarus, but most car's require the key to be cut to be programmed. For instance on hondas or fords, the key has to be in the on position in the ignition switch to be programmed.

You may be right. I'm not exactly sure. When I do Dodges for example I just take the guts out of the key if it's that big one with the keyless entry and stuff. I leave the people with a door key in case they ever lock themselves out. Now that the idatalink stuff came out I no longer have to do that but you get the idea I'm sure. As for programming from the dealers; I'm not sure.

yeah it's nice that you can remove the fob from the key in the dodges. Or you could use one of the numerous bypasses that don't require the loss of a key.

It must be because of the lower quantity of subarus sold that they don't research a system that can bypass the immobilizer without losing a key.
