So both my key remotes for 2007 forester have failed. Both can only open the doors and not close. I opened it up and one of the switches broke free from the solder. I tried fixing it but i suck at that.

1) any cheap places for replacement FOBs?
2) can i substitute other models for a FOB like impreza or outback?
3) is it easy/hard to reprogram for my forester?

THANKS

Ooops..sorry I was on my phone and that link did not show up. Sounds like a pain but as you say do-able.

Really subaru dropped the ball on this bigtime...there are way too many fob failures.

If you don't buy from a dealership, make sure the fob has the 8 digit code, or you won't be able to program it to your Forester! :wink:

The programing isn't overly difficult, it's just tedious! :icon_eek:
