Engine immobiliser

Postby Boogze » Fri Dec 22, 2017 3:40 pm

Hi all. So my missus wanted to reactivate the engine immobiliser on her 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX, after reading the books and finding stuff on Google she found out how to reset the keypad password, not knowing she needed the original password prior as it was deactivated when I bought it. Now she has reset the keypad without original password car will not start and alarm now goes off, only way to stop is taking negative battery terminal off. Have rang Subaru n they will charge $130/hr to look at the problem. Does any know how to deactivate the immobiliser to how it was when I got it?

Cheers

Not without the original code... Have a look through all your owners manuals etc in case they wrote it down, also have a look on the spare key fob ...Subaru will sort it in less than an hour........but they will probably charge for 3-4 hours...LOL..They are more trouble than they are worth. Get it removed for $200. Having your LOCATION on your profile makes it a LOT easier for people to help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for that we have found the codes she's happy now but now her car alarm won't turn off when we put the battery back in and cannot seem to turn the alarm off

There is a proceedure to reset the code. Do a search... disconnect the battery , hold down "0" while someone else reconnects the battery then input the code ..or something like that. We have removed the crappy brant systems and replaced them with Mongoose .
