Keyless Entry

I have an '04 STi. One of my remotes decided it didn't want to work anymore. Any idea what a new one costs? Any idea how to program it? Also, how do you turn the alarm off using the key? Yes, that was a rather embarassing event

To program the remote
Quote:
Unlock all doors, foot on brake, all doors closed. Cycle key quickly but carefully on-off appr 10 times until the car honks one time.
Do not turn the key far enough to start the car, just to the 'on' position so the dashboard lights up.

When the horn honks, open and close the driver's door, press any remote button and that's it.
Program another remote? Quickly open and close the driver's door again and push a button on the 2nd remote. That's it.

When you're done, remove the key and the horn should honk 3 times. You're all set.
Sometime it takes more than 10 on-offs to set program mode. Open/close the door, lock/unlock etc, wait 10 minutes, then try again.
To disable the alarm with the key, cycle between on/off with your key 3x rapidly.


To buy a replacement. (your battery probably just needs changed)

If you want the old style, I'm sure you can find one on ebay.
