Subaru Forester: Keys and doors / Immobilizer

The immobilizer system is designed to prevent an unauthorized person from starting the engine. Only keys registered with your vehicle’s immobilizer system can be used to operate your vehicle. If engine start is attempted with an unregistered access key fob or key, the engine will not start. Even if the engine does start, it will stop after a few seconds. This system, however, is not a 100% anti-theft guarantee.

CAUTION

  • Do not place the key under direct sunlight or anywhere it may become hot.
  • Do not get the key wet. If the key gets wet, wipe it dry with a cloth immediately.
  • Do not modify or remove the system. If modified or removed, the proper operation of the system cannot be guaranteed.

NOTE

  • To protect your vehicle from theft, please pay close attention to the following security precautions:
    • Never leave your vehicle unattended with its keys inside.
    • Before leaving your vehicle, close all windows and the moonroof, and lock the doors and rear gate.
    • Do not leave spare keys or any record of your key number in the vehicle.
    • The vehicle has a maintenance-free type immobilizer system.
