This problems occurs every time you have to replace your battery. The local auto parts guys or neighborhood mechanic should be able to help as well, a six pack goes along way. On my 98 Subie wagon GT the Subaru Alarm module is located just above the fuse box on the lower left side of the driver area. On a short lead you will find a push button switch surrounded by a shroud, this should be your reset button. Without the key in the ignition, locate this switch. Then put the key in the ignition, turn the ignition to on, passed Acc, (where just the radio comes on), everything should light up, and with in 5 seconds push and hold the button until the flashing stops. Turn the ignition off and the start normally.

If this works send me the six pack, (Shiner Bock or Miller Lite), if not, try your local Firestone shop or mechanic. they have to do this almost every time they work on a car.

Your system may just need to be reset. That recently happened to me and the Subaru service dept was able to fix it quickly and easily. I think it happens when your vehicle suffers a power failure. My battery had died, and upon replacement, the lights flashed. Also my power locks ceased to function. That also needed a quick reset and everything was soon back to normal. Good luck. Desk
