Default Need Help With 05 Lgt Issues


This is a long shot but hoping maybe someone has some insight here. I have a 2005 Legacy GT limited it is my wife's car and I don't drive it much. I recently had the car and realized that the key fob had stopped working which I thought was odd. So I got new batteries and then I even reprogrammed it... nothing. Ok so I got a new fob with new battery as well, programmed that, nothing still. OK on to the next so I noticed that the door chime goes off when the door is open as if the keys are in the ignition although they are not in there. So I went to subaru and nobody had any idea so I talked with a seasoned guy there who said they were pretty sure it is the ignition switch gone bad causing that door chime. This would make sense as I have noticed maybe one out of every 20 starts you have to wiggle the key and wheel as if it is locked even though the wheel is NOT locked. However, would a bad ignition switch also cause the fob to not work? even from outside of the car you cannot lock the doors only the driver door will lock, its as if it always thinks your keys are in the ignition and stops you from locking them in the car..... PLEASE before I start blowing money on things let me know if the ignition switch sounds like the correct repair.... I am hoping it is not the BIU, but no other symptoms which I have read people were having that had issues with the BIU everything else works perfect.

Thank you in advance for any help!
