Went to my spare keys on Subaru Forrester - they will not

Customer Question

Went to my spare keys on Subaru Forrester - they will not work with the fob. Over riding the alarm using the key plus keypad works but is not a long term solution. How do I link the key to the alarm
JA: Have you checked the fob's battery?
Customer: yes
JA: What year is your Forester?
Customer: looking for information - think it is a 97 sorry 07
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Hope to fix myself or cheaply - just started research
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: No - it is more alarm than mechanics
