Hey guys...i have a 98 Outback Limited i just bought..it only came with 1 key fob and one set of keys...i went online and found places that sold new Key Fobs and i bought one..the instructions called for opening he door - putting the key in and turning it to "on" - and then pressing and holding the programming button under the dash...well - i can't find the damm button!
I took out the lower dash panel and looked under the dash and i see nothing even closely related to what they were talking about - a metal or plastic ring with a button it in to push to prgoram the new remote......nowhere...can anyone shed some light on this? where it may be or if i am delusional?
ADDED FROM THE BOTTOM FOR PEEPS TO SEE AND GET SOME HELP....THANKS KEN!
FOUND IT!!!!!!!!! THANKS KEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Exactly where you said....right next to the kick panel on the left side - pointing straight down to the carpet - it is only the diameter of a dime - and the button is very small....here is a pic i snapped with my phone..this is looking up from the floor...right against the left side of the footwell...
new remote i got works perfectly....procedure is simple...
1) Open door
2) Turn key to Full on position with dash lights lit up but do not start the car
3) Press button in and hold for 15 seconds....door locks will cycle 3 times - KEEP Holding button in...and then press the "lock" button on the remotes you want to have work. You will hear the door locks click when the button on the remote is pressed.
4) Let go of button and turn key to "Off"
5) Try out remotes.
Both my original one and the new one i got work perfect. And the new one will unlock all the doors by holding the unlock button down just like the original remote. I have another remote on the way from an Ebay guy - was all of $17 shipped - the code i searched for is GOH-M24 - that is the code on the back of the factory remote for the frequency. I'm sure the new key FOB i get will work too.
Thanks to EVERYONE for their help. Now i can give a set to the wife for her to have and a spare to have in the house. My Subie Love just went up a notch!
