I just installed a genuine H001SFJ601 remote start into my mothers 2014 Crosstrek. It has very simple instructions.
We bring it to the subaru dealer to get programmed with their DST-i SSM SSMIII computer. They come back saying they can't get it to work. That they need to do additional troubleshooting which may cost up to $800.
They are blaming it on the vehicle being a salvage title (I rebuilt the car, I know nothing is damaged). And they said it's a aftermarket remote starter. We disputed saying it's a factory, then they go on about how the aftermarket radio is messing with it.
Anyway here is what we get. You press the remote start button. The lights flash once, horn honks, and remote flashes green 3 times, but the car doesn't crank.
What are we missing? Something stupid? I've never used a factory remote. The dealer seems clueless, they first said they can't program a module like this.
