Replacement remotes thru the dealer will be the teardrop design. If you want to keep with the kind you have now, you will have to find someone that has some leftover or a used on.

There are two types of teardrop remotes.

One that is the replacement for your remote and the one for the newer vehicles. From my experience, they are not interchangable, which means you have to get the one that does not have the 8 programming numbers (not letters) inside the remote.

I wouldn't worry about the FCC number....

I did exactly what rexygirl said and programmed two previously used remotes that I bought from NASIOC and eBay. It took maybe a minute total. I didn't do any of the punching eight digits or anything, and the alarm never went off. The horn simply chirped once. Works perfectly. Thanks rexygirl. Btw I have an '02 wrx. One of the new (to me) remotes has the gray buttons, the other has the orange and blue buttons.

You're welcome!

The grey button remote is the older style of the orange/blue button remote. Basically, they are the same exact thing...Subaru just started to make them colorful.

There is no difference in them

Glad you could find the older style....they are becoming rare

I just used this sequence on my 06 WRX which I found here.
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2372138

1) Make sure everything is shut (same as other instruction).
2) Get in, sit down, shut door (same as other instruction).
3) Open and shut door (same as other)
4) Put key in Ignition and turn key from "lock" to "on" 10 times, and finish in "lock" (slightly different from described)
- no tones or flashing lights occur as described
5) Open and shut door
- a faint tone is heard
6) Enter numbers as directed. Push lock the number of times that equals the value, then unlock between each digit.
- a tone is heard for each press
7) After <unlock> of last digit of the first sequence, hit unlock an additional time.
- tone flutters
8) Reenter sequence.
- tone for each press
9) for additional remotes or to push other codes out skip to 9a)
10) Open and shut door
- long tone
11) Remove ignition key

9a) Open and shut door
9b) Enter first sequence as described above
9c) After <unlock> of last digit of the first sequence, hit unlock an additional time.
9d) Reenter sequence.
9e) Continue to step 10 or 9a

This worked great...I'm pretty sure I did not press unlock an extra time after the first set of numbers though. The tone is a faint beeping. The locks did not lock or unlock by themselves at any time. The remote did not work immediately. It randomly started to work shortly (minute or less) after during frantic button pushing.

I got two teardrop style remotes from ebay. One had a single 8 digit code and programmed successfully. The other had an 8 digit code and also another code containing letters and numbers, this one did not work. yrmv.

Sorry to bump this old thread. I'm afraid I'm having trouble getting into the "program mode" to program my new 2006 Subaru Impreza key FOB (tear drop shaped one purchased from amazon). I unlock the door, hop in, put the key in the ignition, turn on off 10 times in <15 seconds.... and nothing happens. The car's manual suggests this should work, but it doesn't seem to. I've tried it probably 20 times trying to go faster, slower, and every thing else i can think of. I have not tried disconnecting and reconnecting the battery to reset my alarm yet. Should I do this next? Any thoughts on where I might be going wrong would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Reset the system by disconnecting the battery. This will take it out of valet mode.

Also, just keep turning the key to the "ON" position until you hear the beep. Sometimes its 10-12 times....if after 15 times it doesn't sound, remove the key and open and close the drivers side door and try again.

These two points are why I came back and made a modified version of the how-to..

Once I realized that I could bounce the key back n' forth really quick without counting it was much easier.

It's worth noting that 90's models with the dealer-installed accessory keyless/security system uses a different method to program. There are 4 "slots" for programming, and all 4 must be filled.

1.) turn key on
2.) hold security program button down until the alarm chirps. This is located in the drivers front footwell area.
3.) press a button on the remote (this fills one slot)
4.) press a button on each other remote until a total of 4 are programmed. If you only have one remote, this needs to be programmed into all 4 slots.
5.) turn ignition off and verify operation of all remotes.

Pretty sure that was covered in the posts already? I know I've seen it mentioned plenty.

It's not 'crucial' to fill all 4 slots, you only 'need' to register a new fob once, but leaving the other slots with a code means it's a little easier for a code sequencer to 'guess' a code that unlocks your car. Which is pretty moot because it's far easier to sniff the code and play it back.

Even if you upgrade to a fancy unit with a code that advances they have ways to figure out the advance with multiple scans so even that's not really much security.

After stealing my own car from my mechanic on a weekend after he forgot to hide my keys in the agreed upon location, using only a spare valet key with no fobs, I don't have much respect for the stock alarm at all really.
