Disarming security system on 2003 subaru outback



Help!! I need to disarm the security system on a 2003 subaru outback and cannot figure out how to do it. Can anyone help? Thanks!


Locate the fuse that powers it and remove that fuse…This may also disable some other wanted feature…


thanks! I’ll give it a try.


Do you have the Owner’s Manual?
If you do, simply follow the instructions for putting the security system into “Valet Mode”.

If you don’t have an Owner’s Manual, I will give you the directions, but I would also advise you to get a manual.


"[i]When you choose valet mode, the security system does not operate. In valet mode, the remote transmitter is used only for locking and unlocking the doors (and the rear gate on the station wagon), as well as panic activation. The parking lights do not flash when the remote transmitter is used for locking and unlocking.

To enter valet mode, open the driver’s door and keep the unlock/disarm button on your remote depressed for more than 2 seconds. The security system indicator light on the instrument panel will continue to flash 2 times per second, indicating that the system is in valet mode"[/i]

As the old saying goes, “when all else fails, read the instructions”.
