Hi,with the door open press and hold lock/and unlock to remove the system from valet mode this should start you over,make sure you hear the horn beep to signal it's in programming mode ,thanks

The system does not respond to the fob and the fob is good I know all about the valet mode I was going to program 1 more fob in the system did the 10 key turns the horn beeped once and by habit I pulled the key out of the switch then the horn beeped 3 times like it was reprogramed thats when the system stoped working . So I whated a day then tryed the 10 key turn to program in the fobs from scatch but nothing happen after the 10 key turns now ? So do I need to go to subaru or what ???

Hi,I'm not sure what's happening here but before you make a trip to the dealer try disconnecting the battery with the key in the on position,once removed turn key to off reinstall battery cables,this resets the system and may allow you to program the remote
