Default Key fob problem 2012 subaru wrx sedan

Hey guys, i need some help. I have a staged 2 subaru wrx that i bought pre owned in which i got a hold of the owner before purchasing. Long story short, the dealership uninstalled and removed a remote starter. I believe this is my problem.

I cant get either one of my key fobs to unlock doors. Im forced to unlock the car manually with a key which sets off the alarm, so i had to remove the horn fuse temporarily.

I tried replacing the batteries and also reprogramed them correctly using a series of steps i found online but still nothinng.

What are the possible causes of this?

Is it possible something couldve been unplugged after remote starter removal? Help!!

If you unlock twice it should disable the factory alarm, most of the time the remote start is just tied inline with the factory wiring. Id make sure the key fobs are the correct ones for your year first.

Are you suppose to have the door open or anything like that while programming the fob?

Does your dome light come on when you open the door? I ask because the pin switch could be bad which wouldnt let you complete the programming.

If you are getting that far then the control unit for the keyless is working, they could have cut some wires during removal or burned up the keyless module.
