To check if your vehicle has this function, lift the drivers door handle when locked. If it beeps, then you're in business.

This will work even if the remote is not,

1. Select a four-digit code number - avoid 0 since it requires 10 pulls on the handle to represent 0.
2. Turn on ignition and open driver�s door.
3. Lift and hold outer handle for longer than 5 seconds - buzzer gives long beep - this means the system is waiting for a new code.
4. Lift and lower handle the number times for your first number - wait for single beep.
5. Repeat second, third, and fourth numbers - now the system will start beeping � it is requesting you to confirm the code number.
6. Repeat steps 4 and 5.
7. When the second series of code numbers matches the first series - a long beep will sound to tell you the code has been registered.

Now test it � lower your drivers door window, turn off ignition, and lock the door.
Now try your code on the outer door handle and you should hear the car unlock.

NOTE
If the wrong code is used five times the system shuts down for five minutes.

If the battery is disconnected for longer two hours the code will be erased and will require new programming.

Keyless entry on a car made pre 90s! just shows how awesome subarus are.
ok so a step by step guide on how to do it. from memory so correct me if I'm wrong or miss a step.

1 open drivers door and lock it.

2 insert key into ignition and turn to second position. ( past acc but not starting it)

3 pull and hold drivers door handle till it beeps (should be a long beep)then release.

4 enter first digit of code you want by pulling handle quickly then wait for a short beep. ie 4=pull and release 4 times

5 enter second, third and fourth numbers by doing the same waiting for the short beep in between each number.

it should beep twice to say you have completed the set up.

Important!!! remove key from ignition before closing door in case it locks your keys in.

with keys in hand close and lock door and test it to make sure it works properly. I have heard of some cars missing the beeper ( it gets caught and ripped off by the window mechanism) I think it will still work you just have to pause for a couple of seconds where it should beep but im not sure of this.

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
HP is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how much you push the wall out.

Sorry, I didn't realise the first post has been deleted!! Yeah, as SubSpeed says. But be aware that a 0 needs to be 10 pulls of the handle.

no I use the inside lock thing as I get out of the car almost every time as my new key doesn't like turning that way. You do need the key in ignition to set it up.
and how did you get no key holes? through all the hard work of shaving the lock or did you just modify rear door handles

Boostin I dont think of it as a 0. I think if you pulled the handle that many times you should say its 10 but who wants to be standing there pulling on your door handle for an hour just to get in.

This explains why everytime I lock my car, and check the handle once just to make sure its locked (paranoia) it beeps. Had me puzzled for a long time!

Won't work then. From BG on you need the factory remote key to set it.

I should as gerald if he has any BG keys. Cause yeah, can use any fob. Only problem matt, ever time you take the battery out, or when it goes flat like mine did several times, you lose code, and have to reprogram. Got a new battery in now though.

One day i will stump up the $300 for a new key remote... One day... (still less than half the price of a p-plate, yet it actually has a function :D)

<Shale>: Blighter doesn't really have an accelerator pedal, it's more just a loudness pedal. You can change volume, but you won't go any faster.


<mjlqtown>: (Southern US accent) I'v excised the demon! This car is now clear!


<Reuben>: I feel like when you stomp the throttle in Blighter, it's like you've startled an old man!

Can't remember to be honest. Just start the procedure above, and if it gets to a point where it won't go any further, hit one of the remote buttons.
