I ordered my 2018 Legacy Sport with Remote start. I think the option was dealer installed.
I can use either the Keyless Entry FOB, or the separate Remote Start FOB to start the car remotely. I think the optional remote start FOB had a greater range than the Keyless entry FOB.
If I use the Keyless Entry FOB:
- Press the Lock button 3-times; twice a quick press, and then a press and hold for the 3rd.
If I use the Remote Start FOB:
- Press the lock button on the Keyless FOB, the press the the Remote Start FOB button three times.
I took the instructions from this REMOTE START PROCEDURE It is a youtube video that was made by a Subaru Dealership.
My remote does not quite work like that. All I need to do is press the remote button twice and it starts. Maybe the door is already locked.
If the range of the Optional Remote FOB is not greater than the Keyless FOB, then the $450 option does not have as much value imo.
Now that any procedural questions should be clarified, here is the problem / question:
No matter which method I use, the car shuts off when I open the door. Is there a way to open the door with the car still running?
