Subaru Outlooks released from 1992 to 1997 feature both a remote transmitter entry and manual key entry. This feature enables owners to lock the doors manually with a key or remotely with a transmitter consisting of a lock, unlock and panic button. The Subaru Outlook has an auto-lock feature that results in the vehicle automatically locking once the last door or boot has been closed. You cannot disable the auto-lock feature, but you can navigate around the system.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Push the "On" button on the remote transmitter to lock the doors. The horn will beep once and the lights flash once.

  2. 2

    Disarm the system with the remote transmitter and unlock the door by pressing the "Unlock" button once. The car horn will beep twice and the lights will flash twice. The Subaru will not automatically lock the doors when using the remote transmitter because the remote transmitter operates on a separate locking mechanism than the manual key.

  3. 3

    Do not unlock the door with the key entry if you plan to open a door or a boot and close it again. This will prompt the auto lock to engage and lock the door. The Subaru Outlook is programmed to automatically lock once the last door or boot has been closed.

  4. 4

    Do not close the last door or boot until you want to lock the door, if you used the key to manually unlock the vehicle. The Subaru will automatically lock once the last door or boot is closed.
