O.k.,this may be a dead or weak battery needing jump started then tested to see if it needs replaced.If you can post the model of this Subaru this will help just let me know.I can see if I can get you the instructions on how to access the battery or jump start the vehicle.

Another cause if the battery is o.k. is the key/remote itself at fault needing replaced but we need to check the battery first so let me know.

Thanks Pete
