    Blinker long flash when locked?

    Done a few searches and yet to find anything, so hopefully a quick post might answer...the last few days when locking my VX from remote, the blinkers flash once vut now stay on 2-3 times as long as before. Is this a sign of something? Thanks

    That doesn't sound good. Or cheap.

    Its not great no....new BCM, keys and it has to be linked to the ECU with Tech 2.
    Do some reading up on it, it was pretty common on the VZ's.

    Have you tried swapping the flashing relay over with another one that's the same? But I'd say if it was the relay it would do it when indicating, not just locking

    Ben - don't know where you are but if it is Melbourne, there is an organisation that can re-programme all keys and computers etc. Local Subaru agent (Wollongong) just sends all the components to be matched. Considerably cheaper than all new bits through the dealer.
    Had a new computer fitted (under passenger seat) shortly after I bought the WK - warranty job of $850 (part) plus fitting etc

    I'm sw of Sydney. Bugger. I just poured more cash into it than it's worth already. Sooner or later just need to walk away.

    Been flat out with work and no time off except xmas day so haven't had a chance to book in to have someone look at it. Does anyone know if this is likely to become a major issue if put off or just an annoyance? So far it's just the blinkers when locking.
