How do you reset the system and be able to start the car after setting off the alarm by using the key to unlock the door
I accidentally used the key to unlock the car and the alarm sounded... I
quickly closed the door and I think I hit the buttons on the fob....or I re locked
the door manually. I'm really not sure it was so alarming. Now the car will not
start and the fob is not working either. Car Manual is not helping to get it all
reset. Can you help
Is there a number to call the manufacturer of the alarm?
Grasshopper, it's the SUBARU alarm he's most likely referring to. Christ...you're crapping on threads you can't possibly be helpful with again.... Shiatsue: just insert key in ignition and twist three times...alarm will go off. On 4th twist car will start.
Thanks for reaching out... when the alarm started I closed the door , pushed buttons on the fob and maybe relocked the door... i can’t remember... the alarm stopped . I have tried the 3x and then start on 4th ... no luck. I have locked and tried the fob lock / unlock to try to reset ... no luck... tried unhooking negative terminal to battery / turn switch to on.. retook up battery... no luck. Tried jumping the car no luck... it is dead in the water.
Does the motor crank?
WOW.... there are after market alarms you know....
Again, a deceptively sideways error in logic, Grasshopper. As the questioner didn't mention an aftermarket system, and ALL Subarus have a factory passive system that "alarms" when electronically locked and subsequently is unlocked manually, the first solution is ALWAYS to reset the system with the triple key-twist...aka the valet's special. Please PLEASE stop adding noise to the landscape!
