You are in the Subaru Legacy & Outback
What is this discussion about?
Subaru Legacy, Sedan

I have an 09 Legacy with the remote starter and when I start it up, the lights flash, the doors lock and the car starts. There is no horn that goes off. Hopefully, it is just some programming that the dealer can do for you because it is a nice feature.

When I took the car to the dealer for a routine service, I told them of the problem and they were able to duplicate the problem. The service guy deactivated the alarm system and, so far, the problem hasn't recurred. So I guess I can't use the alarm but I've never had to use it (at least intentionally ) and hopefully won't have to do so.

Curious, how much did it cost to have it installed? I have the 2009 Legacy Limited and one of the "features" on the window sticker says it's pre-wired for remote-start installation.
I think this may be a nice 2009 Christmas gift for my wife since she usually drives the car, but I'd like to make sure the dealer isn't robbing me hand over fist.

The retail for the unit is $345 plus install. Plan to pay between $400 and $500 plus any applicable taxes. I think that they just charge based on what the book says it should be but go in and barter with them, they can certainly bring it down if they really want your business.

My wife loves the remote start....I'm sure yours will, too!

I had the dealership put a remote starter on my '09 Legacy Limited when I bought it. I too live in an apartment complex, yet, i've been lucky that no one has complained about me starting my car in the mornings.
I hope they can fix it so you can use your alarm system. I would feel leary about leaving my car without alarming it, but that's me.
