SOURCE: factory alarm

the only way to reset an alarm is to disconnect the battery cables.

there is no such thing as an alarm reset switch.

My suggestion would be to go to autozone, they sell replacement key pads.

If you have the owners manual you should be able to look it up in there..if you don't have the owners manual..call your local Subaru dealer ask for the service department and ask the service tech...they're usually prettty good about that type of question.

''Hold At'' Subaru forester problem


I don't think you have a problem at all. when you turn the key on, the hold at light appears, this lets you know the system is engaged and ready to go,and will not turn back on unless the system is engaged during slippery conditions. Try disengaging the button,then turn the ignition on, I'll bet the light doesn't appear! Thats because its not supposed to when the system is disengaged. Dale

How do you reset the computer on a 1998 subaru forester without the wireless remote?


I am thinking you mean the alarm system. If so, Just locate the box under dash by where your left knee sits. It is about 4" x4" x 1". It has a wire lead that has a small button on it. Just push and hold the button for about 15 secounds and it will reset itself. That should stop the marker lights from flashing. Good luck and hope this helps. Have a great day.

Check the cap and rotor for internal carbon tracking or, just change them. Also, take a look at the coil when its dark and rainy and see if there is any arcing where the coil wire goes into it.
