Question about 2001 Subaru Forester
A couple of days ago, my battery got very low and I almost couldn't start my car. Somehow, this affected how the security system operates. Prior to this, when I used the control to lock or unlock my doors, the lights would flash (I turned the horn off long ago.); now, the lights don't flash. Also, now when I get in my car, even when the doors are not locked, the security light is flashing. Never did that before. It goes away when I turn the ignition on.
I read this on the subaru tech bulletin page
i had the same problem - apparently i had inadvertently put the system into "valet" mode
to get back to normal, unlock with remote - open drivers door - hold down the unlock button on your remote for 2-3 sec - the flashing light will go out and your system should be back to normal
it's too bad the manual doesn't supply information about activating and deactivating "valet" mode

Also having the double flashing security light issue. Tried the above solution (which is also in the owners manual). Heard the locks work, but no change in the "valet mode" blinking light. Some forums describe a "valet Mode" button under the dash. Don't find one. Battery seems fine. Stuck for an answer.
