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.
