    your advise is a palm-off. Please be more specific and tell me exactly what part is u/s. Also tell me where on the car the fault is . Your previous effort is just not good enough and I think you have short-changed me. Also I queried the aboved result yesterday and have had no response.... stop pulling my chain!

This would most likely be just a problem in the driver side door since the other doors open. There may be a broken power cord that is leading to the door that controls the locks. Or there could be something inside the door that is causing the lock to jam. When you try to unlock the door, open the driver side door and see if when you do it, it will make any sounds.

To fix the problem go to an authorized car dealer and have the car key replaced, and the new car key re-programmed.
This costs about $80/£50.

The control unit that handles door locking and unlocking is the Smart Entrance Control Unit. It is located behind the center console. It could be going bad or is getting a bad input signal from a door switch. It is also possible that the master control switch, on the driver side door, is going bad and feeding back a bad signal the control unit. The master control switch tends to get rain on it and causes some weird behavior.............


I hope this would resove your querry.


Any further questions or feedback, greatly appreciated.

Thanks for using Fixya.

The key must be out of the ignition in order to lock the doors with the
interior power door lock switch. If the key is in the ignition, the doors
will automatically unlock. If the doors automatically unlock with the key
out of the switch, then check the switch in the ignition lock cylinder for
sticking, or give it a shot of aerosol Lock-Ease or WD-40.


if still the problem then its not the remote problem or the battery
as someone with a factory repair manual and
electrical wiring diagram will have to diagnose the problem.

Remote Transmitter Replacement (Wagon)
Use the following procedure when replacing one or both remote transmitters:
  1. Open the driver's door.
  2. Press and hold the driver's master door lock switch down in the UNLOCK position.
  3. Quickly insert and remove the key from the ignition switch five times, then insert the key the sixth time, and leave it in the ignition switch. (This routine must be done within 1O seconds.) All the doors will lock and unlock to indicate that the control unit is in the program mode.
  4. Press either button on the replacement transmitter. All the doors except the driver's door will lock and unlock to indicate that the control unit has accepted the transmitter into its memory. If either transmitter button is pressed again, all the doors will lock and unlock.
  5. To program a second transmitter, press either button on that transmitter. The doors should lock and unlock as described in step 4.
  6. Release the driver's master door lock switch.
  7. To exit the program mode, close the driver's door or remove the key from the ignition switch.

I bought a new Keyless remote for a 2007 Forester from a Subaru Dealer to replace an original one that went bad after 2 years. I have followed the directions in the owner's manual to program it, but can't...


IMPREZA: 2005, 2006, 2007 and
FORESTER: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
Check for Immobilizer key on Forester XT models only.
information is always subject to change and correction imp05keylessremote1.jpg
new remote for 2005 Imprezas.
This is not the same remote as the 05 Legacy/Outback remote which also has truck/gate release on the front and a red panic button on the back.
Lock: press Lock button for 2 seconds or so to lock car, and arm optional security system. The car with chirp once and turn signals flash for locked, 5 short chirps and signal flashes if any door is not fully closed. The dome light goes on for 15 seconds and ignition key ring (if present) will light for 30 seconds when unlocked.
Unlock: press unlock one time for driver's door, press again within 5 seconds to unlock all doors inkling rear gate (wagon). The system does not open the trunk.
Panic mode: press and hold lock button for approx. 3-4 seconds to activate Panic mode. I panic model the horn honks and turn signals flash until either the lock or unlock button is pushed again.
Finder mode: Press lock button 3 times within 5 seconds to activate Vehicle Finder mode. The horn will honk once and the turn signals will flash 3 times
Distance: works within approx. 30 feet depending on battery strength, nearby concrete walls and etc.
Audible Chirp On-Off: the system will chirp when locked or unlocked. To turn OFF the chirps, unlock the door and then push both lock and unlock buttons at the exact same time for 2+ seconds. There will be 2 chirps indicating the the audible is off. To turn the chirp back on, repeat the process and the system will chirp one time when it is back on.
Battery: as the battery ages it will only work as you get closer to the car. When a battery is replaced, the transmitter must be re-synchronized with the Keyless control unit. To synchronize, press the lock or unlock button 6 times.
Programming: 4 codes may be programmed.
Sit in driver's seat and unlock all doors. Open and close the driver's door
Turn the ignition key from LOCK to ON position 10 times within 15 seconds. Be sure to stop at both lock and on. The horn will HONK once to indicate transmitter programming mode is activated. Leave key in LOCK position and don't remove it from ignition.
You now have 45 seconds to complete the programming as below.
Open and close driver's door again.
Push either lock or unlock button on the remote you want to program. The horn will honk 2 times when successful.
To continue and program other remotes at the same time: open and close the driver's door and push lock or unlock on the remote. The driver's door must be opened and closed between each remote you want to program.
Done programming? remove the key from the ignition and the horn will honk 3 times.
DELETE old codes? Reprogram 4 times, it will overwrite old codes.
Alarm Security System: optional on all models. When locked there is one chirp (can be turned off, see above), the turn signals will flash and the red 'security' light will start to flash once every 2 seconds except for STi which flashes twice every 2 seconds.
There will be 5 chirps if a door, hood, and trunk or gate is not fully closed
You can also arm the system by using the power lock button on the driver or passenger door as you get out of the car and then closing the door behind you.
Disarm the system: push unlock for 2 seconds
Lost remote, alarm activated? When you can't use a remote to turn off the system: open the door with a key or try to start the car and the horn will start to honk. Turn the key on-off 3 times within 5 seconds and the alarm will go off and you can start the car. It's simple!
VALET mode: To set valet mode or just to disable the security alarm system: 1. unlock all doors 2. physically open the driver's door 3. hold the UNLOCK button on remote for 2+ seconds. The red 'security' light will then flash 2 times a second until the car is turned on.
System has been Tripped (except for STi): if you unlock the door with the remote and it chirps the signal light flash 4 times, the system has been triggered;
Identification mode: To find out what happened and why the system was triggered:
Open and drivers door, leave it open. Turn ignition key from LOCK to ON 2 times and then leave in LOCK position.
Tripped code: 1 security light flash: a door has been opened, 3 flashes when the impact sensor was triggered, 4 flashes when the ignition was messed with or battery disconnected
