    Starter Ignition problem (2002 Model)

    Hi guys,

    Very new to the whole WRX thing!

    2002 Bugeyes WRX
    Automatic (don't ask)
    Standard engine immobiliser and alarm

    The key turns to pre-ignition/on (where a buzzing sound becomes very loud in the engine bay somewhere), then I try to enter the code into the alarm keypad and all it shows is a blank/no lights display. When I test it by trying to start the engine by turning the key further, there comes a persistent and very loud clicking sound with the dash lights going crazy.

    When I take the key out and everything is off, the alarm keypad displays the number 1 lit up.


    Any ideas?
    It could be dead simple but as I said before...I'm a real beginner.


    Cheers ahead of time

    Is this an aftermarket alarm? I thought only the 04+ STI's and 06+ WRX's got the immobilizer option from the factory. Try removing the negative battery cable and hold down the brake pedal for 1 min. Hook eveything back up and try again. Also it could be your battery is taking a dump. Check its voltage and load test it.
