Ditto
Yes it's definitely for the radio, & not part of the demister as I first thought

The guy behind the counter says thats easy give me a second & I'll do it for you. Did you bring both keys ?

He opens the car & tries to re-programmed it Doesn't work
Gets the other key & tries that, still doesn't work
So he grabs 2 new (Panasonic) batteries & replaces them for me For free Yes thats right they gave & replaced my key batteries for free

He tries again & still no go

So he goes & grabs one of the other workers, who does it in under 10 seconds
Turns out he was pressing the button the wrong way
Oops

Anyway, this is how it's done.

Behind the kickplate panel on the right on the drivers side there are 2 white plugs. Just join them together.
Then press & hold the central locking button on the drivers door to unlock.
Whilst holding the button on the door, press the lock button on the key twice.
Now let the door button go.
And it's done, it's re-programmed

EDIT: Don't forget to unplug the 2 white plugs when finished. END EDIT

Regards
Mr Turbo

Default Re-programming keyless entry unit in Forester

Gidday Mr T

I have added some tags to the thread and added this to my Favourites in IE.

Good work mate, and a heck of a lot cheaper than buying a new one, having it fitted, then ALL THAT WORK Subaru would have had to do to re-program it ... I wonder what they would have charged for that part?

A good outcome for you all round.

AND we all get to know the process for re-programming keys and the keyless entry unit ... .

I'm just glad it's over & done with & all fixed

The past couple of weeks has been a PITA while unlocking & then re-locking the doors when you need something. Especially the back ones

I'm having a similar problem with my central locking not working, and have tried the usual( key battery, fuses, relays). Is there a way I can check the functioning of the Module? Many thanks matt
