Customer Question

2015 outback wont start, remotes appear to be disabled no response. Car has been parked for a week

Hi ,Push button start?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have pushed start button, held down both remote buttons, touched remote to start button, touched remote to door sensor. the remotes are not responsive. the car has been parked for a week. the owners manual states that if the car has been idle for 5 days the system shuts off. how do I re activate the remote ?
Expert:  tamaz replied 1 year ago.

when you enter the car do the dome lights come on ,does the dash have the greeting on it ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
NO nothing, I have a jump on the way. Do you think a jump will re set the remote?
Expert:  tamaz replied 1 year ago.

Yes all should return to normal, when the jump start arrives see if possibly something was left on when you exited the car like a dome lamp or something

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will let you know
Expert:  tamaz replied 1 year ago.

Thanks

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Jump worked. seems odd that a new car with 2900 miles battery dies after 1 week
Expert:  tamaz replied 1 year ago.

I agree,if nothing was left on better get it checked out,it's still under warranty which is good
