Question about 2006 Subaru Outback 2.5

1 Answer

We have a strange issue where neither of our key fobs work at our house (whether standing beside the vehicle in the driveway or from inside the house) but they do when we are elsewhere! These are both factory issued, not aftermarket.

Happened to me too. There is some interference in the area that is canceling out the signal from your remote. Frustrating but there is really nothing you can do about it (other than move :-) ).

My key will not start my car,then it wouldn't open the door


This model year comes equipped with Keyless Enter-N-Go, which uses an electronic transmitter in the key fob to communicate with the car. The vehicle's doors will not unlock and the vehicle will not start if the key fob is not matched to the vehicle or if the commonly-available watch battery in the key fob has been depleted. The EVIC will flash a message upon vehicle startup if it determines that the battery in your key fob is low on charge and should be replaced.

To open the doors, try the following:

1. Use the spare key fob that came with the vehicle. If the battery in your main key fob is depleted, the spare key fob's battery may still retain charge due to its much more occasional use.

2. The key fob comes with an emergency key inside of it. To remove the emergency key, slide the mechanical latch on the back of the key fob sideways with your thumb and then pull the key out with your other hand. This key will allow you to unlock the driver's side door and glove compartment. It will not start the vehicle.

To start the car with a severely-depleted key fob battery, try the following:

1. In case the ignition switch does not change with the push of a button, the RKE transmitter (Key Fob) may have a low or dead battery. In this situation a back-up method can be used to operate the ignition switch. Put the nose side (side opposite of the emergency key) of the Key Fob against the ENGINE START/STOP button and push to operate the ignition switch.

To replace the battery in your key fob, try the following:

1. Remove the emergency key from the key fob following the directions above.

2. Using a vinyl spudger tool or a flat-bladed screwdriver, gently pry the two halves of the key fob apart at the indented slot above the slot for the emergency key.

3. Replace the depleted battery with a new battery. Use the depleted battery to visually match the size. The battery is usually available wherever watch or hearing-aid batteries are sold.

4. Snap the key fob back together and replace the emergency key. If the issue is a depleted battery, your key fob should operate normally.

If the issue is not related to the state of the battery, you will probably need to contact your local dealer for service.

Key fob not working


Double check the area where your remote is not working. These new key fobs manufacturers are using still operate on RFID signals if I'm not mistaken and those signals can be interfered with by technology transmitting these same signals within 50-200 ft. It might not be your "new electronics" might be your neighbors, or the power company has their low frequency signals interfering with your signals. Do a public search on your neighborhood and find out if any new electrical work has been done to your block.

I cannot lock or unlock my car with my key fob


Test the battery inside key fob, should be at 3 volts, if is less than 3 volts replace the battery. If that does not work you may need to replace the key fob, on this vehicle you can program the key fob through the radio, the car manual shows you how to do this.

Before replacing the old key fob you can try to resinc the fob to the car by pressing the lock and unlock buttons at the same time for about 15 sec, if the door locks cycle the the fob will work again.

Wireless Key Remote door & trunk opener won't work with trunk anymore


When you press the trunk open button, do you hear any "release" noise come from the trunk area? The issue may be a bad battery in the key fob OR there could be an issue with the transmitter located inside the vehicle. Do the doors lock and unlock properly? is the vehicle equipped with security or immobilizer? please advise

Car will not run. push button light is green. car acts like it hits (starter engages and cranks and cuts off). Car has gas(put 2 gallons in to make sure gage is good. Battery is good.I Even tried to...


The 2006 has an engine imobiliser in the ignition and micro chip in the key fob. There could be a low battery in your key fob. Take your spare key or your good key and hold it right beside the push button when cranking. See if that allows the engine to fire and remain on. If so replace the battery inside the fob. You can do this by pulling the glove box (silver) key from the end of the fob and inserting the tip of the key into its slot sideways to pop open the **** shell housing and expose the internal battery.
Post back with results.

Key Fobs act strange. Replaced batteries, now one


The Key Fobs for the Buick LaCrosse typically fail after 4 years. Both of mine started off failing to unlock and then completely failing. I purchased 2 new ones on EBAY for $40 and had the dealer program them for $10. To buy new ones at the dealer is very expensive, about $150 apiece.
