It's the theft part of the keyless entry system...reprogram your keyless entry and it stops...

It's your cars keyless entry system that is the source of the problem.

If the battery has been disconnected, it will cause this to happen.

You have to find the keyless entry system reset button

on my 1997 Subaru it is under the dash on left side it is a black button

hold the button in and at the same time turn the key to the on position

(Do not start the car just turn to the on position)

for about 20 seconds and it will reset

Why would my parking lights start blinking after installing new headlight bulbs in a 1998 Subaru Legacy Outback that isn't running?

I had a similar situation. The situation arose from disconnecting the negative battery terminal. If the vehicle has remote locks like mine does, whenever you disconnect the negative battery it puts the remote lock relay into some type of default mode. If you lock and unlock the car with the remote the relay is reset and returned to normal operation.
