Question about 2003 Subaru Outback
My 2003 H6 Luxury Subaru Outback won't lock with the remote. When I press the remote to lock the doors I can hear it lock and then immediately I can hear it unlock again. The only way I can now lock the car is to manually lock each door (Very frustrating) can anyone help?
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.
