I have been trying to figure out how to adjust the following features in my Impreza, without having to go to the dealer. The owner's manual says I must go to the dealer to change the following settings: Dome light timer: off/short/normal/long, alarm system start delay time after door closure: 0 Sec.-30Sec., dome light on/off while alarm activated, Defrost auto-off after 15Mins or continuous,  on/off, Battery drainage protection, on/off, wiper deicer 15Mins. or continuous operation. If anybody has some insight or answers to this question please let me know.

I have a ebay disc and cable interface that plugs into the OBDII connector (which allows access to the body computer) to set these things. I have been looking for an excuse to play with it. Give me a few days and i will let you know if it works on my 05.

Thanks Nipper


Sorry I took so long to reply.


Any luck with the optional adjustments?
