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.

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

From workshop manual:




A maximum of 3 transmitters can be registered for

each individual vehicle.

1) Remove the side sill cover at the driver's side,

then connect the registration connectors at the

front pillar lower section.

2) Unlock the door lock.

3) Press any button of the transmitter twice to be


4) The door lock will automatically lock and unlock

in sequence. This indicates the completion of transmitter

registration for the first transmitter.

5) If registration of another transmitter is now to be

carried out, repeat procedure 3) and 4).

6) Disconnect the registration connectors after the

completion of all registration operations. After confirming

the operation of the door lock using the

newly registered transmitter(s), reinstall the side sill

cover at the driver's side.

Sorry for bumping an old post, I just purchased a BE5 (2000 Legacy B4 RSK) that came with the original 2-button key fob. I installed a new battery, cleaned up the contacts and tried these programming instructions. On the first try they seemed to work. But once I disconnected the registration connectors it stopped working, when I tried to program it again nothing happened. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

      Afternoon team,
      im new to the group first time posting. Im hoping some body can help me get my launch control all dialled in on my link g4x. Ive had the computer and car all tuned from chris at prestige awesome knowlegable guy super happy with the results but now im wanting to get my launch/anti lag all dialled in. Ive been reading multiple different forums etc all with different conflicking information which has made me nervious with what do i listen to this or that if you get what i mean. Now ive started to make myself familiar with my PClink software etc the past few weeks and im eager to learn how to do minor setups or tweaks etc so im not relieing on my tuner so much and obviously saving myself abit hurt in the back pocket. 
      Now back to the question at hand.... Im wondering if theres and one who could please share there knowledge and wisdom with setting all my values, timing, fuel etc when i have launch control armed and engaged, or even a launch tune file they can possibly send me to load onto my tune. Ive figured out the setup of my digital inputs turning launch control on etc and its obvisously on its pre set factory settings. It engages but doesnt sound the greatest or as angry as it should i feel. Hence reaching out to you good buggers. 
      Cheers in advance for any info and help yous maybe able to give me.
      Cheers Shaun
