Yes, if you put the FOB in the tray the car will still start and hopefully after some miles driving it will charge. With the FOB battery discharged, none of the remote functions will work. If it's dead when you put it in the tray it may take a few seconds to come to life and allow the car to unlock.

Charge the battery properly or replace it, then test the electrics. The charger probably does not have the ouptut to run all those items.

Checksum errors are usually from corrupted flash/eeprom area's in the module in questions. Sometimes you can re-flash them to fix the problem. Any shop with a j2534 tool can re-flash it using GM SPS ($120-$150). The engine computer (I am assuming your issue is with) is not that expensive used ($50-$100) so you may be better off to just have them flash a ...

If no interior lights work but the battery is charged then you may have a problem with the electrical connections going to the 2 battery terminals (also known as posts). The connectors may have come loose or there may be corrosion preventing electrical contact. The first thing I would to is make sure the terminals and connectors are clean and tight. If ...

Here is your diagram, it does not show a fuse for starting, that is controlled by the ECM and BCM (computers) It could be the relay, which is in the TIPM box under the hood. It may or may not be replaceable, if not auto parts suppliers have reman TIPM boxes for sale. You are probably best to take it to a reputable shop for a diagnosis, the starting system ...

As trond hanson said in the comments, the "proper" way to install accessories is to use a relay, drawing power directly from the battery terminals. (Technically, when the vehicle is running, your device will be drawing power from the alternator, but the battery terminals offer a good connection point. In theory, connecting to the battery terminals is the ...

I think you may have got some wires crossed - some of the colors are different but very similar... Worked on one for a friend and there were 4 different versions of "green" which he had managed to mix up - he had an excuse he was color blind so they all looked fine :) So, make sure the colors match correctly.

It would have zero affect on corrosion. Once moisture and air hits steel, you have automatic oxidation. Galvalnic action is created when an electrolyte (water, salt water, etc) comes in contact with two dissimilar metals.

Like normal magnets, electro magnets can only attract (pull) metallic objects, so the injector coil could not repel the solenoid valve.

No, you will not be shorting the battery. The relay COIL, for a 12V relay, is designed so that when it's energized (i.e. connected between 12V and ground) will only pass enough current to close the relay contacts. Technically, the relay coil is generally a wire winding around a core material, usually laminated iron pieces. The coil presents both an ...

Make sure the power is totally off, then spray the exposed pins with plastic safe contact cleaner, then gently scrape and file with a needle file. Then spray a bit too much cleaner on the exposed pins and connect the connector to try to clean the internal connector. You can use a NON conductive protective grease to prevent future corrosion and possible water ...

The same happened to me. Turned out to be a bad alternator. My alternator was generating 19v. Abs module is a complex system including a motor. When it sense overvolts, it shuts it down itself tl prevent further damage.

There should be a programming button near the hood release lever. You should be able to use this to disable the alarm system and get your forester started. http://www.cars101.com/subaru/keyless.html#code%20alarm

Start by either replacing or having the battery tested and fully charged. A low battery in itself will cause many no start conditions. The security light blinking while or after cranking is normal do not make any assumptions based on this. To test the immobilizer do this: Insert key and turn it to the ON position (do not crank) What does security light do? ...

The key not turning off on GM vehicles with low/dead battery is a normal function of the car. Either charge or replace the battery then turn the key to crank and back to off to remove. You can also remove the shroud around steering wheel and press the release button underneath the ignition to turn the key switch fully off and remove key.
