^ that flip will work, the only thing in question is the quality. people who have tried flip shells other than the one xluben has have said the quality is iffy.

Yeah, exactly. The other flip shells are not as nice. I am getting very close to ordering a batch of flip shells. If you're interested, please e-mail me:

Got mine from www.subarupartslive.com since I needed to order other stuff. It was a little more expensive - $75? - but free shipping. They offered to cut the key, as well, for $40. I'm just going to cut up one of my spares so I didn't bother but it's an option.

Now who's gonna sell me a shell?

Using the part number 57497AJ10A

I found out my dealership sells it for $71.04...
I don't know if I can justify dropping almost $100 on a key mod :S

I had just spent $1300 bucks on other parts so I said F-it. In the scheme of what I spent, it wasn't that much lol.

I am planning on ordering shells. If someone else is thinking about ordering, please let me know and I will NOT be ordering them. I have no desire to compete with someone or to be stuck with 2 dozen key shells.

So, I have a question..

Quote:
Programming remote
(to maintain your sanity your local dealer should do this for you with their computer)

1. Close all doors, trunk, gate
2. Open the driver’s door, sit in the driver’s seat, and close the door.
3. Perform the following steps within 45 seconds.
(1) Open and close the driver’s door once.
(2) Insert the key into the ignition switch, then turn it from the “LOCK” position to the “ON” position 10 times within 15 seconds.
NOTE: When you complete step (2), an electronic tone will sound once. If you do not perform steps (1) and (2) within 45 seconds, an error will occur. An electronic tone will not sound. In this event, perform the whole procedure again beginning with part 1.
4. Open and close the door once within 15 seconds.
When part 4 of the procedure is completed, an electronic tone will sound for 30 seconds. If you do not perform the operations in part 4 within 15 seconds, an error
will occur and the electronic tone will not sound. In this event, perform the registration steps again beginning with part 3 of the procedure.
5. Before the electronic tone stops sounding, press the lock side of the power door lock switch the same number of times as the leftmost digit of the transmitter
code. For example, press the lock switch eight times if the leftmost digit of the code is 8.
NOTE . The electronic tone will stop sounding when you start entering the number. If you do not start entering the number using the lock switch before the electronic tone stops sounding, an error will occur. In this event, perform the registration steps again beginning with part 3 of the procedure.
If the interval between one press of the switch and the next exceeds 5 seconds, an error will occur. In this event, perform the procedure again beginning with part 4. If an error occurs six times, perform the procedure again starting with part 3.
6. When you have finished entering the number, press the unlock side of the lock switch within 5 seconds.
NOTE . An electronic tone will sound. If you press the unlock side of the lock switch when more than 5 seconds have passed, an error will occur. In this
event, perform the procedure again beginning with part 4. If an error occurs six times, perform the procedure again starting with part 3.
7. Perform parts 5 and 6 of the procedure for each of the remaining digits of the transmitter code beginning with the second digit (counting from the left) and
finishing with the eighth digit.
NOTE When you finish entering the eighth digit, an electronic tone will sound for 30 seconds. If the interval between one press of the switch and the next exceeds 5
seconds, an error will occur. In this event, perform the procedure again beginning with part 4. If an error occurs six times, perform the procedure again starting with part 3.
8. Before the electronic tone stops sounding, use the power door lock switch to reenter the transmitter code beginning with the leftmost digit.
If you do not start entering the number using the lock switch before the electronic tone stops sounding, an error will occur. In this event, perform the procedure again beginning with part 3.
9. When you have finished entering the code a second time, an electronic tone will sound for 1 second to indicate completion of registration, provided the code entered the second time is identical to that entered the first time.
NOTE If the code entered the second time is not identical to the code entered the first time, an error will occur. In this event, perform the procedure again
beginning with part 5. If an error occurs five times, perform the procedure again starting with part 3.
10. If you wish to program another transmitter code into the system (up to 4 transmitter codes can be programmed into the system), perform the procedure beginning with part 4. When you have finished programming all of the necessary transmitter codes into the system, remove the key from the ignition switch.
11. Test every registered transmitter to confirm correct operation.
After you turn the key the 10th time, do you shut it off or do you leave it at ON?

EDIT: Leave it ON.

I do know that you have to turn the key back and forth pretty darn fast to make it in the allotted time.

Thanks! I figured as much. You probably need accessory power for the lock button to work.

Good news! I got the correct Legacy key today, put it back together, and programmed it into the car. Now it all works perfectly! I'll update the first few posts of the thread soon.

Where are you guys finding these legacy keys for a decent price? I can't find anything for under $80 delivered.

That is what you will pay from any site really, you might get lucky and find something cheap on ebay but I have already been burned twice by false advertisements on ebay.

Yep, you can scour eBay and take your chances (I also got the wrong key once). Or you can pay $60-80 for an OEM key.

I hope this is a joke. Read the title. Read the first few words. You will find your answer.

This can be done on 08-10 WRX's, but the parts and processes required will be different. See this thread on 3GWRX for further information: http://www.3gwrx.com/forum/index.php/topic,22640.0.html


So no o.O? lol idk im confused -_-

Reading comprehension fail. It can ALSO be done on 08-10 but it's a different process than the for the 11 WRX.

If you need to ask that question, I would recommend you absolutely do not attempt this.
