Noobie question about door locks.
I've only had my 2000 Legacy Outback for a few weeks but I'm wondering if my locks are broken.
I'm used to using my key to unlock the door and on my Toyota if I unlock the drivers door, return to the upright position, then move to the unlock position again, it unlock all the doors. It doesn't do that on my Outback. Should it?
I have a remote and it works as expected, press unlock once and just the driver's door. Press it a second time and all doors unlock.
So here'e the questions. Should the key thing work like my Toyota or not? If it's a typical feature to this year of Outback, has anyone added one? And finally, I don't carry the stock remote because it's big. Can anyone recommend a smaller aftermarket remote?
Thanks for your help.
If it can't be fixed with a hammer, it must be an electrical problem!
