    Security Blinking

    Hey guys,

    I recently had to disconnect my battery so I can clean up the terminals (it was nasty). Ever since then, I've noticed that my dash have been blinking this security light at me. I assume that its trying to warn me that someone attempted to compromise the system by disconnecting the battery.

    Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!

    Is it a factory alarm? I think it does that if the system is in "valet mode."

    Edit...

    To quote the manual... (my.subaru.com is teh helpful)

    When you choose the valet mode, the security system
    does not operate. In valet mode, the remote
    transmitter is used only for locking and unlocking
    the doors (and rear gate on the wagon) and panic
    activation.

    To enter the valet mode, open the driver’s door and
    keep the “UNLOCK/DISARM” button depressed for
    more than two seconds. The indicator light repeatedly
    flashes two times while the system is in valet
    mode.


    To exit valet mode, open the driver’s door and keep
    the “UNLOCK/DISARM” button pressed for more
    than two seconds. The indicator will stop flashing.

    And if that's not it, the manual also says...


    If the horn sounds four times and the parking lights
    flash four times when you disarm the system, this indicates
    that the alarm was triggered. The number of
    times the indicator light flashes indicates what sensor
    caused the alarm condition.

    To enter identification mode:

    1. Open the driver's door and leave it open.

    2. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position two
    times. (LOCK ON LOCK ON LOCK)

    3. The indicator light will start flashing.

    The indicator light provides the following indications.

    Flashing one time: Any door, the rear gate or the
    trunk lid has been opened.

    Flashing three times: The impact sensor in the system's
    unit has been activated. This may indicate that
    your vehicle has been shocked or tampered with by
    some outside force and/or unauthorized person.

    Flashing four times: The ignition switch has been
    turned on or the battery has been disconnected.

    To exit this mode, close the door and turn the ignition
    switch to the ON position.
