Angry Keyless entry problem...

I'm not exectly sure whats wrong, but I can no longer use my keyless entry system. Everytime I get into the car, I have to unlock in manually and the it sets off the alarm. The light on the transmitter goes on when I push a button, but the car doesn't respond. Any suggestions?

have you tried your spare remote? mine had similar problems, I guess they are sensitive to water or getting dropped, which is somewhat annoying.

Unfortunatly, my spare is in Maryland and I'm in Indiana. I guess I'll have to go to a scooby dealership around here. Oh wait... Thats right! The dealership that was around here burned to the ground! Well, looks like I've got a long drive... Any other suggestions? Thanks.

If you cant use your remote to de-activate the security system. Here is what you do.

step 1 insert key into key hole
step 2 turn key counter-clockwise three times
step 3 open your door ( note: no honk honk blink)

works for me.

at least on my 02 WRX wagon

Sorry man... I don't mean to laugh, but one of these day's your going to see just how funny that is...

Is there another dealer in your area? What about FedEx'ing your spare to you?

You aren't near a large radio antenna are you? I've had problems with my alarm remote a couple of times now, and each time the cause has been radio interference. Are you having the problem with your remote ALL the time, or just when you're at work/home?

It happens all the time. Not just in any one location. I'm gonna call Subaru tomorrow, and see what they can do for me. Apparently, there is a trailer acting as a temporary home. Maybe they've got a few spare transmitters?

Can you put it into Valet mode?

On my old RS valet mode button was the LED. Put in the key, turn to "on" and press the led/button.

Voila'.


If that fails, try changing the battery on the TX and then if necesary repeat the programming procedure to "learn" the remote to the brain.

If it's at all possible try to purchase an after market alarm system made by DEI, that includes, Sidewinder, Python, and Viper systems. You will have much more range, features, and reliability. I have the Python 1000esp system and the extended range antenna and it's great.

Try reprogramming the remote using the instructions in the manual. If i recall its something like get in the car close the door turn the key on and off 15 times and do a buncha other crap.

As far as range and reliability on aftermarket alarms I have a Viper in my other car and my stock subie alarm has a lot more range and I really like that you can turn the damn arm/disarm noise off. I was really spoiled with my other car and its remote trunk release thou its such a pain in the ass to use the key or open the door and use the lever.

I've got a Python, and you can turn the arm/disarm noise off on that. If you just want it once, you press AUX once just before arming; to turn off the noise in general (leaving only the light flashes), you have to change one of the settings in the brain; I don't remember if you can do it yourself with the valet switch programming or have to get the dealer to reprogram it.

I also stated I have the extended range antenna on my Python so that may be why it your Viper isn't outperforming the stocker...
