Remote locking

G'day out there!
I have a 2003 RS Imprezza and can't get the remote locking/unlocking to work.
Have checked the remote battery - OK, the fuse - OK
Is there a relay or seperate control box that can be checked, for loose plug etc. I did fit an after market stereo some time ago, could this have somehow stuffed up the locking "module"

Any advice would be appreciated!

Re: Remote locking

doubt it would be linked to the stereo mate. Can you unlock it with key and does the car start Or is the immobiliser not deactivated ?

Re: Remote locking

Yeah Matt, keys are all fine, and doors can be locked & unlocked from the button on the driver's door. Thought that there may be some kind of fancy anti theft device connected to the radio. Called the local Subaru dealer. He said that the remote locking probably needed re programming (for $60.00 & half an hour's work). Not sure what would have affected the programming. Have had the battery disconnected, but surely the security system has a back up battery.
Thanks for your input!
Regards,
IanC

Yeah, had it re programmed, as I couldn't figure out what else it might be. Frustrating really, as I still don't know why it lost it's memory! An easy $60 for the Subaru mechanic!
Thanks for your interest.
