Is Subaru still using the additional Brandt immobilizer?
I had mine removed from a 2002 WRX.
Where is your keypad mounted?
I would say Subaru is not using the early additional system now, it was good in the day, but very prone to failure.
You car should still be under warranty.
You need to get the dealer to look at it.
Does your second key do the same thing?
Is the second key kept away from the car?
I love Subaru for their honesty, they are always upfront.
I have owned 3, and some things I can't do, so they do it for me.
I am quite sure they will sort your car, and warranty should pay for it.
I hope Subaru has fixed your car by now, and you have many happy days of motoring ahead.
