Subaru Locksmith

There are two types of systems fitted to Subaru vehicles that can generally be identified by the model year. Detailed below is a guide to help you determine which system is fitted.

Up to 2000

This system can normally be identified by having a keypad in the glovebox.

These vehicles can also be fitted with a Sigma alarm that has a separate remote control.

We can program new fobs to replace old fobs with our tester.

From 2000

On these systems the keypad is now located in the fuse box and is only required if the alarm needs deactivating. The key is now integrated with the alarm/central locking remote control in the head of the key. And a transponder chip located inside the key.

General Subaru Immobiliser info.

With the vehicle stopped and the ignition off, there is a red LED on the dashboard which flashes as an anti theft deterrent with a 0.2 second on time and a 2 second off time.

This indicates the vehicle is in an immobilised state. If you insert the ignition key and start the engine, the LED will remain off, indicating no faults are found.

If an attempt is made to start the engine with an incorrect non programmed key, the engine will start but stop after 2 seconds and the check engine light will flash. Engine cannot be subsequently restarted.

The ignition key utilises a transponder chip which has no battery inside. When the key is turned on, an engine request signal is sent from the engine ECU to the immobiliser ECU.

The immobiliser control unit energises the antenna and amplifier situated around the ignition key barrel. The code is then sent to the immobiliser ECU which sends it back to the engine ECU with a conformation signal. If this signal code is the same as is stored within the engine ECU then the engine function is enabled.

Lost/Stolen Key
