After giving my car a through interior spring clean, the red security light behind the steering wheel is now flashing twice (not a code listed in owners manual) and will not stop flashing. My searching online leads me to believe that I now have the car in valet mode but my attempt to re-arm the alarm by holding the small remote button has failed, as well as other "resetting" suggestions in owners manual. It does not flash while driving but still its driving me crazy! Besides I fear my car no longer is armed with an alarm.
Im a service manager at a Subaru dealer. The security system is in valet mode. Open the drivers door, with the drivers door open hold the small unlock button on the remote and keep holding it until the light stops flashing.

I'm guessing you meant to say 'power off''. Otherwise it sounds like you have reasonably guessed there may be an electronic malfunction -- but with this, as with any device with a 'chip', I'd suggest first literally 'pulling the plug,' or if it's surge protected powering that down. Give it 30 seconds or so, then power back up. Best of luck!
The switch for your dash lights is probably bad. (The rotary dial to adjust dim to bright) can you still turn on the interior lights with the dial? it will "click" when in the fully bright mode and turn on the interior lights. If so, put a dark towel over the dash to mask the interior lights and look to see if the dash lights are on. If they are on, you've found the problem. (very common) Hope this helps

Make sure that the starter wires are secure and in the right place first. It could also be a sticking solenoid. I suspect a wire not connected to the starter. Let me know if it works so I can help you more.
