I've got a 2001 forester and my keyless remote has failed. Its been going for the past few years, taking more and more times to press the button to get it to unlock. I have replaced the battery and made sure battery was charged so that eliminates that problem. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a repair anyone knows of? I would like to try and repair it first if that is an option. I know I can order a new one online, but I do like to tinker. Has anyone ordered one online and programed it? Just wondering if they really work and are as easy to program as advertised. Any help would be great!

Ebay, just match up the numbers on the back of the remote to the ones listed in the auction. The direction to program it are in the owners manual or most of the auctions will now send you a email with the instructions once you pay.

The ones on ebay can usually be had for a fraction of the cost of getting them from the dealer.
