Reconnecting battery and alarm sounds


Recommended Posts

Hi there, I am new to the Subaru club having bought myself an 05 type uk sti a couple of weeks ago.

However have had it stored in the garage as am at university and came back today to a flat Battery. Charged Battery and gone to connect it then alarm sounds and key does not stop it. Is there anything I can/should do when reconnecting my Battery to avoid the alarm going off? If not do you have any ideas of how to fix it? I have tried turning the key whilst alarm going off and the dashboard lights are all flashing and car wouldn't start. 

Really want to get this sorted as would like to get out in the car but don't want to do anything that would cause settings to change in the alarm system, as if I can't start it I hope nobody else can! I am now already looking into buying a CTEC to trickle charge Battery for whilst I'm away from home.

Many thanks

Kit

Hello & welcome

I take it it's the factor sigma alarm ? If so you should have a keypad located somewhere, normally in glovbox or the coin tray by your right knee, there an alarm guide in the faq's somewhere that will enable you to sort it out

Hi, 

Thank you and yes I believe it is, I have tried using the 4 digit pin the previous owner told me and this did not work either. Leaving 30 seconds between each entry but do not want to lock myself out of anything as my car is my pride and joy! As you can understand I'm young and do not want to break anything....

Is there anything in the sigma sheet that I should particularly look for?

I'm browsing using Tapatalk so can't see the faq's site properly, the guide pretty much works on all the sigmas,

You can ring your subaru dealer and they should give you the correct pin number but you'll need your vin number and reg,

I have aftermarket alarm so can't be of much more help but I'm sure someone will be along with more knowledge soon

Okay, that's great thanks! I will probably end up giving them a ring as it'll hopefully correct it there and then.

Ahh right, would you recommend going down that route if this problems keeps reoccurring? What system is it you have and have you had any problems?

Thank you for your help!

I've a viper system it was installed when the car was imported, so it's about 10 years old now, only problem I had was the installer used a code writer to programme it and subquently lock the ecu so I couldn't add a new key fob

Hi linx, thanks for this but have just tried using my dads car Battery and alarm still went off as soon as I connected to the Battery terminals, so must be something to do with the car.

Thank you Greenmamba, but I've tried using both remotes/keys to disarm the system as soon as I connect the terminals but this still hasn't stopped the alarm from going off, so frustrating as just want to know the car is all okay!

Shut all the door/bonnet and let alarm finish squeeling if will !

If siren does stop try cycling alarm couple times via the remotes and see if works on them !

Also check Battery voltage is over 12.4V

Trouble with pin code is if someones changed it subaru recorded one won't work

read manual for info on entering pin code as quite fussy on how done.

easy enough reset pin or add remotes as long as got one remote that works alarm .

Thanks Mr B,

Have finally got the alarm to stop using your way of closing and locking everything and letting the alarm do its thing. Have now reset the pin to the factory one to help in the future, the link prooved very useful! 

Thanks for your help everyone!
