Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

Remote starter open door/shut off

I just leased a 2013 Subaru Crosstrek & had the remote starter installed by the dealer. It has the open door/shut off safety feature. Is there a way to disable it without voiding my warranty. I guess this is some sort of theft safety feature but the car can't go without the key in the ignition turned to on, if the brake is pressed it shuts off & it can't go into gear, so where's the threat of theft???? I think this is a very poor feature that a lot of manufacturers are now adding.

SOURCE: 1997 ES 300 How to reset anti-theft system when car won't start

With the doors shut, insert the key into the drivers door lock. Lock and unlock the door 5 times. This should reset the system. If that doesn't work you should contact a qualified repair shop.

Tell your husband to call the Toyota dealership back, and ask them if you vehicle is involved in a "Special Policy Campaign". Toyota IS replacing the doors for FREE with the issue you speak of, We have replaced 15 or 20 so far here, at no cost to the owners. If the dealer gives you the run-around, call the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1-800-331-4331 and explain your situation. The CEC will guide you the rest of the way to get your car fixed.

SOURCE: Ford F150 remote key does not work after car battery

Should not have happened,
For the Factory RKE ( Remote Keyless Entry ) have you tried reprogramming the key fobs to your truck. The procedure is in the owners manual ( need all of them at programming time ).
This is stored in NVR, and should not need to be done, but worth a try.

If this is an aftermarket Remote start / alarm, check the owners manual for t on battery replacement. Have seen some off brand with strange battery ( truck's battery that is ) replacement steps.

SOURCE: 1996 Explorer anti-theft system won't disable

Try re-setting the computer...Disconnect the negative terminal of the battery and leave off for 5-10 minutes. This will allow the computer to reset. The charger may have interupted the signal or something.

Where is the blower fan relay located on a 2013 subaru crosstrek?


Not exactly sure if it has relay, but your fuse panel should be in the engine compartment and the blower motor Resistor, which controls the speeds of the motor, should be right by or screwed to the blower motor itself under the dash on the passenger side.

Is it normal for my 2013 subaru xv crosstrek to have excessive oil consumption?


Yes that is normal, Subaru failed to tell customers of the oil consumption, if you go to your Subaru dealer they will fill oil to level & tell you to come back in 1200 miles time, they use 1quart every 1200 miles
