don't lock it until you get a FOB

 

cars101.com has programming instructions which is relatively easy to do at home with your 2002

 

buy a used FOB/remote and program it and you're done. 

 

OP, if you figure it out, let me know, and tell me where you got the FOB from.  I got one and can't program it, one of the first steps is turning the ignition on and off ten times and the horn is supposed to honk but mine doesn't.

I wasn't the one that locked it a friend was. I went to the junkyard and asked them if they had used key fobs for sale. The guy handed me a big bucket of them and I dug around until I found a Subaru one like these cars have. I actually bought two for like $10. So the first piece of advice worked for getting the alarm to stop. Turn the key off and on off like 4 or 6 times until the alarm stopped.

In programming the fob I needed to get in the car close the door hit the unlock button on the door. Then open and close the door one more time after the unlocking button. Following that I needed to quickly turn the key off and on 10 times and leave in the on position at the 10th time. After waiting a second or two the horn honked. Then I hit small button on the fob, open the door close the door and then hit the big button on the fob. Following this when I pull the key out the horn honk three times. Then open the door and shut the door again. That was it she worked.

are you doing the 3 steps before the ignition?   unlock all doors, foot on brake, all doors closed then cycling? 

 

Unlock all doors, foot on brake, all doors closed. Cycle key quickly but carefully on-off appr 10 times until the car honks one time. 
Do not turn the key far enough to start the car, just to the 'on' position so the dashboard lights up.

When the horn honks, open and close the driver's door, press any remote button and that's it. 
Program another remote? Quickly open and close the driver's door again and push a button on the 2nd remote. That's it.

When you're done, remove the key and  the horn should honk 3 times. You're all set. 
Sometime it takes more than 10 on-offs to set program mode. Open/close the door, lock/unlock etc, wait 10 minutes, then try again.

I did it just add described, worked great. Idosubaru, reading your list it doesn't talk about opening and closing the driver's door enough times from what I read. For me what was done in my list worked. Thanks everyone!

yeah i just copied and pasted it from the site - i was mainly asking because he calls the ignition "one of the first steps" - but when it looks like it's actually one of the last steps..so i wasn't sure if that's just internet/keyboard misunderstanding or he actually didn't do them.

On the tenth time I needed to stop flipping the ignition in the on position and wait a second or two for it to honk if that helps you any.

Unlock all doors, foot on brake, all doors closed. Cycle key quickly but carefully on-off appr 10 times until the car honks one time. 
Do not turn the key far enough to start the car, just to the 'on' position so the dashboard lights up.

Sometime it takes more than 10 on-offs to set program mode. Open/close the door, lock/unlock etc, wait 10 minutes, then try again.

 

I just tried this again, yes, unlocking all doors, foot on brake, all doors closed, (sometimes opening and closing door at this point), turning key from off to on (also tried from acc to on) ten times (also tried more than ten times).  If I leave it on and wait, horn never honks.  And I did check to make sure the horn is working.

 

Then I was wondering if the alarm was even still working, haven't tried using the power locks in a year.  Used the switch on the door to unlock and then lock all doors, closed the door, security light started blinking, when I unlocked and opened the door the alarm went off until I turned the ignition on/off three times.  Which brings me back to seconding the original post, how can I just remove this alarm?  Even if I got it working, would using the power lock button on the door cause the alarm to go off if I just unlock the door with the key?  That's incredibly annoying.  I have four street cars and it's nice to just have keys for all of them on my keyring rather than carrying a bunch of fobs around.
