Question about 2003 Subaru Outback

1 Answer

Lost keys,had new ignition installed. Alarm goes off/door is unlo

I bought 03 Subaru Outback on Ebay, It had no original key. I assume a new ignition was installed. Now when I unlock the doors the alarm goes off for 30 sec-1min, then quits. Also [probably due to steering column work] the cruise doesn't work, also had no blinkers until inadvertently I rotated the light dimmer switch[on blinker lever]. Thanks, Luke

I think your model vehicle is subject to 2 recalls. The first is to have the ECM reprogrammed and the second is for a cruise control clip. Both of these recalls exist for sure and may be a good place to start. You can check on "MySubaru.com (you will have to register) to see if your vehicle is affected. If the ignition was replaced having the ECM reprogrammed and the keys programmed might fix the issue. May fix the cruise control as well.

2005 subaru outback immobilizer reset? Alarm was set with door being unlocked with key, immobilizer shut off all power. How can this be reset?


This could be a few things. If the security system was enabled and you just unlocked the door with a key and not using the remote, then all you have to do is put the key in the ignition and turn on/off three times. That's it!

Some cars have immobilizer keys. The immobilizer prevents unauthorized keys from starting the car (yours may or may not have it, depending on the exact Outback model).


Look here for the different styles of immobilizer keys:

I had my car battery replaced and now i open the door and the alarm goes off.


I have heard of this from various different car owners. One Mercedes owner didn't even know he had an alarm for 4 years. If you don't have the original key fob, you will have to get your solution from the nearest dealership. They can probably solve your problem over the phone. Good luck, my friend, Dana

Lost original car alarm control... need to reset a new one...



programing a Nissan remote , is hidden secret by Nissan Dealers. As a Nissan Technician i will share it.

Just get in your vech , close all doors. Using your power lock switch , lock all doors. After doors are locked take your Ignition Key and insert it and remove it from ignition switch in a slow fashion , but consitant pace. (97 and earlyer are fast) When you see the hazzard lights flash, put key in ignition switch and turn to the On postion .. Do NOT CRANK or you will have to Start over .. After in the On postion .. Hit the Lock button on remote... Hazzard lights should flash..( note..you have to reprogram all remotes when adding a new one , if you don't your old remotes will not work ) If your doing just the one , turn igntion switch off and unlock door and get out and try it. If you are doing more than one. While still in Vech with Key on . After you hit the Lock button on Remote and hazzard light flashed .. with key still on .. use master lock switch unlock doors and relock and then hit Second Remote, Lights should flash again , repeat if adding a 3rd remote.. after done just turn key off and unlock door and get out and try.

Car doors won't lock


Hi,
Have a '03 2.5 Premium Outback and same thing happened. Easy fix this one, it's a flat battery....inside the black case on the end of the key. go to your local Tandy or similar store and buy a CR 1620 battery. Then with a very fine jewelers phillips head screwdriver undo the small black screw at the base of the chrome key shaft. Then carefully and gently pry open the two halves of the black plastic part of the key. The round silver disc inside is the battery. Pry it out and put it in your pocket, (so you don't mix it up with the new one!!!!) and fit the new battery with the numbers etched in the battery facing down. Put the two halves back together, fit the screw back in (most important), then point it at your car. Wallah!
A new battery shouldnt cost anymare than a few bucks, and do both key remote's at the same time, regardless of use, because the batteries are the same age.
Regards

Paul
