Hi guys,

I just bought a Forester 2009 and owner forgot to tell me about alarm code. Whenever I enter the car alarm blows out and will deactivate just if I turn the switch on. I have replaced the battery thinking it was a battery issue but the key wont turn the alarm off however.

Could you please help?

Do you have a FOB? My alarm sometimes goes off when I unlock the car but double pressing the lock button usually turns it off. Previous owner also didn't know the code so I have no way of disabling it that way either.

@King Marv assuming you're located in the States as noted on your Public Profile, you can view security system programing information in your 2009 Owner's Manual, "Keys and doors", section 2. There is also information here on cars101.com.

If you don't have the Owner's Manual, I attached the PDF.

Oooh, this is a good reminder that I still need to verify the operation of my fob. Never tested it when I got the car.
