Apologies if this is covered in a thread already, but I came up empty in my search attempts.

My son just purchased an '05 Outback. We're seeing the following odd behavior with the liftgate:

1. Lock with either the door switch or the remote locks all 4 doors + liftgate (good).
2. Unlock with either the door switch or double-press with the remote unlocks all 4 doors but not the liftgate (bad).
3. Long-press of liftgate button on remote DOES unlock the liftgate.

Item #3 above makes me believe that there's nothing wrong with the solenoid or lock mechanism. I'm assuming that the system is in some odd mode that I've been unable to figure out.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Maybe you're in valet mode? See the "Activating and Deactivating Alarm System" section of your owner's manual.

Thanks relative4, I think that was it. At least deactivating and then reactivating the alarm fixed the problem.
