Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. May I have the vehicle information including engine size, please, so that I may check for probable causes? Also, when you say the light stays lit, is this the light on the dash or on the key fob? Is this an after market remote starting system or did it come with the vehicle?

I wrapped the remote in aluminum foil to block the signal. That seems to have worked
Subaru Mechanic: Todd M, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

I completely understand. So this means that the remote is more than likely at faulty. I'm guessing you do not need assistance anymore, correct?

It’s a 4 cylinder engine and the light is only on the key fob.it is a Subaru factory remote starting unit
Subaru Mechanic: Todd M, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

Here, I am attaching the the electrical information for the circuits. What is happening is that the transmitter in continuously sending a signal to the receiver and causing the starter to engage. This is why when you blocked out the signal it cured the issue. What needs to happen is you will want to open up the transmitter and inspect to see if there are any damages or pieces inside that will cause the button to stay depressed. If there is not apparent cause, then you will need to replace the key fob. I am assuming that you have another key also. You should remove the battery from the faulty key and use the second key(if you have one). This will cure the issue. The only other cause would be for the BCM or the keyless module to be causing this issue.

I am suspecting the issue to be in the key itself and it will need to be repaired or replaced.
