Valet mode on 2002 Subaru Outback stuck on

The key fob hasn’t worked for years. Now the security light is twice blinking 24/7 and draining my battery. It somehow got stuck in Valet Mode and need help. I am and will forever be grateful for any assistance.

Try this procedure:

  1. Valet mode or alarm off: alarm light (red dot center dashboard display) rapidly flashing 3 times means the alarm is in “Valet” mode and is not setable. The light will stop flashing when you start the car.
    To set valet mode or just to disable the security alarm system: 1. unlock all doors 2. physically open the driver’s door 3. hold the UNLOCK button on remote for 2+ seconds or so. The red ‘security’ light will then flash 2 times a second until the car is turned on.

There are several videos on youtube explaining how to re-program for fob. Try that

Apparently this person does not have a working remote .
