Default troubleshooting a keyless entry problem

I recently purchased a 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX Hatchback. It was purchased at auction and did not include a keyless entry transmitter, so I obtained one from the dealer who sold me the car. I followed these directions, and these directions to program the new remote, but neither one worked.

When I complete the steps in the first source, the car locks and then unlocks the doors to indicate that the process of programming the system was successful. The remote does not communicate with the car, though -- pressing the "lock" and "unlock" buttons does not lock or unlock the doors.

When I try following the steps in the second source, it fails near the beginning; I turn the key ten times within fifteen seconds to enter programming mode, but instead of the horn beeping twice there is an electronic beep that comes through the speakers. It enters the programming mode described in the previous paragraph.

Is it possible that I have a faulty remote?

Is it possible that the receiver in the car is malfunctioning?

How does this system work?

Has anyone dealt with this issue before? My search yielded no results, but perhaps I was not using the correct search terms.

I'd appreciate any insight anyone has to offer.

Thanks!

Default re your alarm problem

hello just dropping in maybe for a solution to your problem this may not be much help but I run across a lot of aftermarket alarms in wrecked cars I rebuild and to tell you the truth I uninstall every one I come to there very temper mental and have the tendency a lot of times to lockdown your car where it wont run or just lock you out and blow the horn at you if its a factory one I suggest taking it to a Subaru dealer and having it reprogrammed but if you do decide to remove either one have it removed by someone who knows how to wire really good or installs them professionally because there usually tied into the ignition or fuel system so just cutting the alarm wires out wont delete the system hope this gives you maybe another option on what way to go hope you get it figured out

Thanks for the reply. Looks like I'm going to have to try a local Subaru dealer. I've posted on a few different forums, but haven't had any luck. You don't realize how much easier it is to lock and unlock the doors via the key fob until it doesn't work!
