Yes, lock/unlock confirmation.

First thing I'm doing today is getting a new battery. I am really hoping for an easy fix.

I was actually surprised at how easy the cutting turned out. I just made marks and then used the flat side of my diamond cutting blade to file it down to the mark, checking very frequently for fitment when I got close to the end. I think 90% of the people on here should be able to do it with no problem.
That's exactly what I did. It wasn't too bad. My biggest fear was slipping and causing cosmetic damage to the key blade.

Mine too. I actually did slip once, and then I decided it was easier to keep the dremel stationed and hold the key in my hands. I didn't slip after that. I did have to grab a little cup of water though and dip the key in it every once in a while when it got hot. I felt like a blacksmith, haha.

I feel like I'm thread jacking, but hopefully there will be enough of the 08-10 cars on this thread to justify.
Looking really close, I realized a possible discrepancy...

Is it normal to have the outer shell be the 2011 key FCC ID and the inner be earlier? I hadn't realized that the FCC ID was listed on that outer shell as it is so hard to read...

Yeah we could have taken it to PM though I thought this might help some people.

Anyways there is your problem, a 2009 Legacy key remote unit has a black backing. The white backing with that FCCID indicates it is a 2010 Legacy key. So that is why it didn't work.

Further compounding the whole thing is that key shell is for the 2011+ Legacy. Looks like someone was swapping key parts around...

Alright, well, I've decided to order a 2010 ECM since I have to get a couple other things and get free shipping. That means I have a -09 ECM if someone wants it. Pm me for info.

I think the 2010 Legacy key is also a high-security key, but it's not backwards compatible with anything other than the 2010 module (PN:88035AJ00A).

It also so happens that the 2010 keyless module is the least expensive of the batch brand new. They can be had from SubaruGenuineParts for about $60 plus shipping.

That's the route I ended up taking. I have a 2011 STi, but had an older module for some reason (early production maybe) and had to swap it out.

I went with Subarupartswarehouse, because they have a 20% off sale right now and I think it was actually doubled at the checkout, so I only ended up paying like 41 with shipping.

Did you have a coupon for this? I don't see any mention of a sale and price is $72.32 on the site...

No problem. I actually bought two items, one was just a sail panel, so I don't know of that was part of the double glitch or whatever. But 20% off is still decent.

Well he's right. My keys have scratched my phone before I got the flip out. But it does open in my pocket sometimes. I have separated keys and phone to prevent further scratching.

Ok guys I just did some skimming but I dont have time right now to read thru the whole thread ill read it in a little while. I'm having an issue, I'm not interested in doing the flip key I just want the all in one key from the legacy, so I went ahead and purchased what was advertised as a 2011 legacy key off ebay, came in the mail, and it looked good, high security blade and all, but when I came to compare the fcc id's they key has the 09 legacy fcc id. Any way to tell if it truely is a 2009 or a 2011? I have a suspicion the ebay seller might have just swapped the housing. I can include a pic later if need be. Thanks for any help guys if this has been answered I apologize thanks again in advance.

If you open the keyless entry part what does the code on the white sticker inside look like? Is it 8 digit?
