My key fobs will not unlock my car all of a sudden
Went out today to go to the store and when I pressed the unlock button on my key fob, nothing happened. Tried other key fob - same result. I tried unlocking by the key but wouldn't work. Noticed later in day I had a door that wasn't shut tight and pushed it closed. Alarm light is still flashing in car but cannot get in car. Help anyone???
Now that all doors are closed and factory alarm is triggered your fob(s) should work. Check with new batteries first. If you have to break into the car the alrm will sound is defeated, allowing key- starting by just inserting and twisting key three times in rapid succession. On the 4th twist the car will start.
Well that got jumbled a bit, eh? Use a stiff bent coat-hanger type device to get in between the upper glass and the door frame, holding it gingerly pried open with a wedge (big screwdriver, etc). You'll have to be patient learning to push-pull on the lock button to open it. Try whichever door that has the loosest window, Once door is OPENED alarm should sound. Get in quickly and insert either key, turning quickly 3 times to defeat alarm. Subsequent turning of key will start the Subie. Now get those fob batteries!
Thanks for the help - got car opened and it turns out my car battery is dead - waiting for jump
