    lights not flashing with keyless entry

    Within the last couple of weeks my security system light is on when I get into the car, it wasn't always, but now it is. Also when I use the keyless entry the horn honks and the doors open but no lights flashing. What could be causing this. Is it an error in the computers that I can just reset it by disconnecting the battery? If anyone has figured this out could you let me know.

    (I have not done any mods for over a year)

    Well I can't answer your question but my '03 WRX just started doing this exact same thing a couple weeks ago. I've only had it for about a month and a half so I thought maybe it was normal and I just didn't notice it before. I did set the alarm off a few weeks ago, is there something that needs to be reset?

    The owner's manual wasn't much help. Anyone have any ideas?

    figured it out

    Somehow there is something weird with the valet mode and regular. When it is in valet it should honk or flash lights, but some how it honked or something. Try to turn the valet on and off and see where you are there. Did it today and it worked, but we will see if it lasts

    same here, my 03 has not flashed since i bought it, when i go back to work on monday i will check and see if there is a TSB on the issue. Also my upgraded factory alarm along with the shock sensor and security light are also inop. I checked every fuse, and relay i could find and they all checked out the only thing i cannot test is the module itself

    The 99-04 Imprezas have Alpine Alarms. The plain gray buttons were used 99-01, colored buttons for 2002-04. The battery for it is #CR2032.

    1. Locking: Push the large button. This locks all the doors and will set the alarm (if equipped and in setable mode).

    2. Unlocking: Push the small button once to unlock the driver's door and disarm alarm, if set. Push the small button a second time to unlock all the doors.

    3. Honking horn?
    On 1999-2002 models the horn honks once for lock and twice for unlock, 3 times if a door is not closed. This audible honk feature is optional. To turn it off or to turn it on unlock all the doors and hold *both* buttons down until the horn honks once. The horn will always honk 3 times if a door is not fully closed when you lock it.
    This was changed in 2003, models to a 'chirp'. There is no longer an audible honk feature. If a door is ajar the system will chirp 5x and the lights flash.

    4. Alarm. (optional)
    System chirps when locked with the remote if you have an alarm, and no you can't turn the chirp off.

    5. 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 settable. 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.

    6. Arming the alarm: to make an alarm in valet model arm-able, unlock all the doors and hold the small button down on the remote until the light stops flashing. Now when you lock the doors the alarm will be set and the light will flash on and off, on and off.

    7. Alarm goes off?
    Push the small button on the remote.
    7a. OVERRIDING the alarm when you don't have a Remote to disable it.
    If you don't have the remote put the key in the ignition and turn it on and off three times and the car will start on the 4th time

    8. Program remotes: works on Alpine system.

    Unlock all doors, foot on brake, all doors closed. Cycle key quickly but carefully on-off appr 10 times until the car honks one time.
    Do not turn the key far enough to start the car, just to the 'on' position so the dashboard lights up.

    When the horn honks, open and close the driver's door, press any remote button and that's it.
    Program another remote? Quickly open and close the driver's door again and push a button on the 2nd remote. That's it.

    When you're done, remove the key and the horn should honk 3 times. You're all set.
    Sometime it takes more than 10 on-offs to set program mode. Open/close the door, lock/unlock etc, wait 10 minutes, then try again. PITA, but capable.

    here, you can see it, just to the right (pictured) of the pass. side strut tower, right above the aluminum 90* turbo bend.. The black disc-looking item. Looks just like the ones in your grill..

    that could have been removed, but i found the keyless control module and then i was able to locate a black box with a part number that crosses to the upgradded alarm and also i found the shock sensor. i bought another factory alarm and plugged it in but still nada. No light in the dash, and the lights the still dont flash. Even if i was to have just the keyless entry the lights outside should still flash
