Question about 2005 Subaru Forester
My wife had just parked her car in a mall parking lot. As she was beginning to walk to the stores, another, newer Subaru pull up. Apparently when the driver of that Subaru, pushed the lock switch button on the key fob, my Wife's Car's lights flashed as her driver's door unlocked. But just the driver's door. She had to use her metal key to lock the car. At this time, the only way to lock the driver's door on her car is to use the metal door key. All of the other locks on the car can be opened and closed using my Wife's key fob switch. We tried both set of key fobs, so it is not the battery in the key fob. I'm beginning to think the signal from the other car somehow confused our car's electronic locks and maybe needs to be reset if possible. Does seem a bit far fetched. Any ideas would be helpful Thanks John I have the same problem. Just discovered today. Have not had time to look into it yet.
Youre right the car has somehow picked up the other remote,can happen,it happens in car yards sometimes,try disconnecting the battery for 30 or so mins and reconnect,and it really could need a dealer reset if battery disconnect doesnt work,not as far fetched as you think,1 remote can open 2 cars at once ive seen it with toyota corollas
