2011 Impreza WRX Alarm Keypad

Postby Nickgarfitt » Sat May 28, 2016 7:06 pm

Hi, I've got a 2011 WRX, I bought it second hand and found this keypad in the fuse box, I've never used it and am wondering how to activate it, I asked The Subaru dealership here and they want to charge $145 to do it...
Here is a pic of the keypad if it helps:

Lol, I found a key pad in my glove box too on my 2000 gc8. Dunno why it was there, car was fitted with a mongoose alarm system. I have no idea where it's supposed to be plugged in either, I suspect it was a brant or something and the control box was removed. I've just tossed it in a box. I'm actually glad it was removed, I can't think of anything more tedious than having to punch in a pin every time I want to start the car. Stuff that.

Does your car have an immobliser / alarm anyway?

Yeah my car has an immobiliser and alarm, I think the keypad is only actually used in my car if the key fob battery is flat to disarm the alarm, as far as I'm aware anyway.. Found out it's a Sigma S32 fitted by Subaru at vehicle purchase.

Ah well, that's easy then, just get a new key battery every year, or when you notice the range is falling away. Should fit a new battery now since you've just got the car and don't know its history there.

Still wondering what I can do with the keypad, my friend has a 2005 WRX and is required to enter a code every time before the car will start.

I've got the same keypad in my 2008 STI that I recently purchased.

The only function I've found was on a thread on here that enabled the auto-locking doors when the the car is turned on/off.

Does anyone know any other functions? I would really like to figure out how to make my car chirp when I lock/unlock the car.
