wrb. the blue one.

Default 04 sti stock security

So I went to start my car yesterday and the battery was dead and the security light is blinking twice and it won't go off. Is this the reason the battery would drain? I've read about the module behind the glove box but what other way can I deactivate the security system. I don't have a unlock lock key fob either. Any help is appreciated thanks.

You can only program a new remote if you have a certain number of currently working remotes IIRC

You're stuck, you've got to go find someone with a dealership level programmer... AKA go to the dealer.

PS: Now's the time to buy a bunch of key fobs on Ebay and get them all programmed

I bought the fob from eBay. I tried the directions like 20 times and I got nothing. What would cause the car to go in valet mode cause I didn't do anything.

The eBay remote can be junk also so it probably won't program
