In some markets,if you turn the key quickly only the drivers door will unlock,you have to hold the key over longer to open all the doors.(so the driver can not be attacked by robbers from the passengers side or rear.....ladies handbags are a good source of income...)

How do you open the back door (no manual)


Rear hatch is locked or unlocked with a key. (if equipped) • To open the rear hatch, insert the key into the lock, turn it to the unlock position and pull up the rear hatch by pressing the handle (DOOR). You can also lock/unlock the latch (but not release it) with the central door lock system. • If unlocked, the rear hatch can be opened by pressing the handle (DOOR) and pulling the hatch up. • To close the rear hatch, lower and push down the rear hatch firmly. Make sure that the rear hatch is securely latched.

Hatch won't unlock


Donald: Here are some comments on SubaruForester.org : "We just got a 2007 Subaru Forester> and we absolutely love it.

I was wondering if anybody out there has a solution to this small gripe:

The only way to open the rear hatch is to first unlock the driver's> side door, then hit the unlock all button, then walk back and open the rear hatch. It sure would have been nice if the rear hatch had a slot for the key, or there was a button on the remote you could press.

Anybody else have this gripe, and is there a solution?
---------
Two presses of "unlock" on the key fob unlocks all 5 doors.
--------------------------
If it has a key, try that.
==========
My only suggestion is double-clicking the unlock button, while standing next to the rear hatch. I know that on my 2003, it's sometimes a matter of timing.
==================
I remember reading somewhere (can't recall where) that sometimes
if you are parked on uneven ground the rear hatch can be a problem
to open. If you are on uneven ground, try moving the Foz to a more
even place.

So far, what I have tried hasn't worked. Guess I will have to take off door panel. But which door? Driver side door locks and unlocks with remote, with key and with inside door switch. Passenger door...


Since the driver's door gets the most use, and all circuits run through the master switch, check driver's door first and check the wiring at the hinge area for breaks.

Bought from dealer with no keyless entry. alarm activates when doors are locked with power doorlock system. alarm sounds when we open the door. how do we de-activate the alarm before unlocking the door?


Opening the drivers door with the key is supposed to shut down the factory security but the drivers key cylinder usually goes bad. You will have to unlock the rear tail gate lock cylinder with the key and that will shut down the factory security, before opening the drivers door.Your other option is to have an aftermarket keyless entry system installed, which will open the doors remotely while shut down the factory security at the same time.

Used the key to unlock door and alarm started going off. put key in ignition to start, but wouldn't. removed battery cable, do to neighbors, and the alarm keeps sounding. how can I shut it off? just...


With the drivers window down, and the doors closed. and locked connect the battery and lock and unlock the tailgate with the key, you need to unlock it twice to unlock the doors and turn off the alarm. If the locks are working like thier supposed to the drivers door will be unlocked and opening it won't set off the alarm. the truck should be back to normal. If not disconnect the battery again. Drivers window down. Put the key in the switch and turn the key on to the run position. With all the doors closed connect the battery. connect it good and don't bounce it around. If the battery casbles aren't clean clean them good so it'll connect good. If it still is alarming then the doors switches are likly. Or the door locking motors. You should be able to lock all the doors ( including the hatch) by hand and get the system to reset. Try it all again using a different door to double unlock as a lock switch might be sticking. If the system can't verify that all the doors are closed and locked it won't reset. If you connect the battery wihg the key turned on the system thinks it's already running and appeares to be in the unset mode.

All doors will not unlock


Try replacing the ECC fuse on the drivers side fuse panel. This seems to control quite a bit of the rear electronics.

I have a 1993 Grand Cherokee: I disconected the battery and now it starts for 3 seconds and shuts off even after I reset the security system. What should I look for and is there any way I can by pass the...


Once the security system is activated it cannot be deactivated. It shuts down the fuel system. There is a couple ways to turn it off. The Remote unlocking the doors or one of the three disarm switches, located on both front door locks and one at the rear hatch lock. Unfortunately sometimes the front door switches get damaged when the doors are "Slim Jim'd". Usually the rear hatch switch is intact. Simply unlock the doors with the key. Remember that there has to be battery voltage present for the Module to see the switch unlock. (So if you go out to the dead vehicle, unlock the door then jump it. Then alarm will be on till you unlock it with voltage present)

Battery died now power sliding doors and rear hatch not operating


1) Unlock all doors from driver's door while it is open. The driver's door is the only door to remain open during this process! 2) Turn the key from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the eighth turn ending in RUN. All the doors will lock and unlock if program is successful. 3) Turn key OFF and remove key from ignition. Within 20 seconds, press any button on the remote. (Press sliding door or rear hatch and it will open!) 4) If door locks do not respond, wait several seconds and press button again. If doors still fail to respond, try repeating steps (1-3).
