    The light flashes are a signal to you WHY the remote starter does start the car. If the parking lights flash 6 times it is the (-) or (+) shutdown. The (-) shutdown is the hood pin switch. This would be the most common problem. The hood pin (if applicable) MUST make contact with the hood when the hood is closed. The (+) shutdown is the vehicle's brake wire. This should only work when the brake is pressed unless, there is a problem with the brake switch.
    If the parking lihgts are flashing 7 times, it's the neutral safety switch. If your remote starter worked before then more than likely, there is a toggle switch located under the dash, at or near the left kick panel (where your left foot would rest when driving) that may have been kicked or moved accidently when cleaning the vehicle or when entering or exiting. Flip the switch to opposite direction .

If the parking lights are flashing when you attempt to start the vehicle, it is an visual notification to you as to the reason WHY it doesn't start.
Six flashes of the parking lights is (-) or (+) shutdown and seven flashes is neutral safety shutdown. These are the most common reasons for remote starter malfunction. The (-) shutdown relates to the hood pin switch. A malfunction in this area occurs when the hood pin switch fails to make contact with the hood when closed. Adjusting the pin or the bracket it may be attached to will solve the problem. The (+) shutdown relates to brake wire. Unless you have your foot on the brake while attempting to remote start, the issue could be with the brake switch or the wire making contact with 12 volts during remote start operation. The neutral safety shutdown relates to either the toggle switch or, if this is a new installation, the thin black with white stripe wire NOT being connected to ground. If your remote starter has worked before and, is not working now, the issue will be with the toggle switch. The toggle switch will be located (usually) under the dash near the left kick panel. The kick panel is where your left would rest when driving.

The wall control unit is flashing but it will close and open the garage door, but when I press the remote from the car the light flashes twice and it will not shut the door.


You may have 2 problems here. First press and hold the lock button on the wall control for 3 seconds. This should stop that flashing and your remotes should work. If the main light is flashing when you try to close the door you need to check that your door sensors are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. Tweak them a little.

I bought a new Keyless remote for a 2007 Forester from a Subaru Dealer to replace an original one that went bad after 2 years. I have followed the directions in the owner's manual to program it, but can't...


IMPREZA: 2005, 2006, 2007 and
FORESTER: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
Check for Immobilizer key on Forester XT models only.
information is always subject to change and correction imp05keylessremote1.jpg
new remote for 2005 Imprezas.
This is not the same remote as the 05 Legacy/Outback remote which also has truck/gate release on the front and a red panic button on the back.
Lock: press Lock button for 2 seconds or so to lock car, and arm optional security system. The car with chirp once and turn signals flash for locked, 5 short chirps and signal flashes if any door is not fully closed. The dome light goes on for 15 seconds and ignition key ring (if present) will light for 30 seconds when unlocked.
Unlock: press unlock one time for driver's door, press again within 5 seconds to unlock all doors inkling rear gate (wagon). The system does not open the trunk.
Panic mode: press and hold lock button for approx. 3-4 seconds to activate Panic mode. I panic model the horn honks and turn signals flash until either the lock or unlock button is pushed again.
Finder mode: Press lock button 3 times within 5 seconds to activate Vehicle Finder mode. The horn will honk once and the turn signals will flash 3 times
Distance: works within approx. 30 feet depending on battery strength, nearby concrete walls and etc.
Audible Chirp On-Off: the system will chirp when locked or unlocked. To turn OFF the chirps, unlock the door and then push both lock and unlock buttons at the exact same time for 2+ seconds. There will be 2 chirps indicating the the audible is off. To turn the chirp back on, repeat the process and the system will chirp one time when it is back on.
Battery: as the battery ages it will only work as you get closer to the car. When a battery is replaced, the transmitter must be re-synchronized with the Keyless control unit. To synchronize, press the lock or unlock button 6 times.
Programming: 4 codes may be programmed.
Sit in driver's seat and unlock all doors. Open and close the driver's door
Turn the ignition key from LOCK to ON position 10 times within 15 seconds. Be sure to stop at both lock and on. The horn will HONK once to indicate transmitter programming mode is activated. Leave key in LOCK position and don't remove it from ignition.
You now have 45 seconds to complete the programming as below.
Open and close driver's door again.
Push either lock or unlock button on the remote you want to program. The horn will honk 2 times when successful.
To continue and program other remotes at the same time: open and close the driver's door and push lock or unlock on the remote. The driver's door must be opened and closed between each remote you want to program.
Done programming? remove the key from the ignition and the horn will honk 3 times.
DELETE old codes? Reprogram 4 times, it will overwrite old codes.
Alarm Security System: optional on all models. When locked there is one chirp (can be turned off, see above), the turn signals will flash and the red 'security' light will start to flash once every 2 seconds except for STi which flashes twice every 2 seconds.
There will be 5 chirps if a door, hood, and trunk or gate is not fully closed
You can also arm the system by using the power lock button on the driver or passenger door as you get out of the car and then closing the door behind you.
Disarm the system: push unlock for 2 seconds
Lost remote, alarm activated? When you can't use a remote to turn off the system: open the door with a key or try to start the car and the horn will start to honk. Turn the key on-off 3 times within 5 seconds and the alarm will go off and you can start the car. It's simple!
VALET mode: To set valet mode or just to disable the security alarm system: 1. unlock all doors 2. physically open the driver's door 3. hold the UNLOCK button on remote for 2+ seconds. The red 'security' light will then flash 2 times a second until the car is turned on.
System has been Tripped (except for STi): if you unlock the door with the remote and it chirps the signal light flash 4 times, the system has been triggered;
Identification mode: To find out what happened and why the system was triggered:
Open and drivers door, leave it open. Turn ignition key from LOCK to ON 2 times and then leave in LOCK position.
Tripped code: 1 security light flash: a door has been opened, 3 flashes when the impact sensor was triggered, 4 flashes when the ignition was messed with or battery disconnected

You need to reprogram the remotes by briefly pushing the learn button on the garage door opener until it flashes once, then release the button on the garage door opener.

Now press the remote button once until you hear the garage door opener click, now press the remote button once again and the remote should be programmed to work for that garage door opener.

DO NOT press and hold the garage door opener learn button for more than 10 seconds or you'll erase all programs and have to relearn all the remotes, including your car ones.

Hope you found this very helpful and best regards.

Program garage door opener


You must first erase what's in the memory.
1.) Simultaneously press both buttons 1 and 3 on the Audi's built-in remote. Hold them until the indicator light flashes (20 seconds or longer).
2.) Now hold your garage door remote close to the Audi remote.
3.) Simultaneously press and hold both your garage door remote button and the button you would like programmed. The indicator light will first flash slowly then rapidly.
4.) You may release both buttons once the light flashes rapidly.
