    Oem car alarm problems!!!!!

    I have a 2004 WRX and the alarm finally went out. I mean it still beeps but the markers lights don't flash anymore only on the third time when you press it to lock will it flash three times. Before, when i locked the car, if you were to hit the car anywhere or even the wheel itself the horn would sound twice to warn the intruder. Now it doesn't do it anymore. So i was wondering where in the car do they keep the alarm system at like a fuse or somthing.

    99% sure that your valet mode is on; when you get in the car does a red light in dash flash "Security"?

    All the symptoms you described fit valet mode; I think if you hold unlock and lock together for two seconds with the door open it should fix it. If thats not right, its in the manual, but I think it is.....

    Glad I could help.

    My alarm would do the same thing, never got an explanation for why it would beep sometimes and not others. I heard this is a common problem....

    my car will always beep when i lock it but when i unlock it, it will beep whenever it wants to.


    there is a sensor in the front grill i believe and if that gets wet- it wont work


    i heard that dealerships WILL cover this under warranty and replace the sensor free of charge.

    i'm way too lazy to drive down there and get it fixed though.
