I recently purchased a '02 Impreza RS. The car didn't come with the keyless entry installed but I want to add it. I talked with a rep at Subaru.com who told me that all I ahd to do was get a remote and progrm it to the car so I did but it didn't work. After talking with him again he informed me that I would need a keyless entry module for the car but that the car was prewired for this module. I found out that the remotes are the same for the 99-02 Outback as for my car so I found a module out of a '99 Outback on e-bay and bought it for $10. The question I have is does anyone know for sure if this is going to work? I figure if it doesn't then I've only got about $30 in the remote and the module so I won't be out much. Any info about this would be appreciated. If nobody knows then I'll just give it a shot and let everybody know how it goes.

I have a 99RS and mine didn't come with Keyless either so I bought the OE Subaru kit (both the Keyless Entry and Security System upgrade). Everything about the keyless was absolute plug and play and the included instructions are pretty good (I think the instructions are on http://www.scoobymods.com as well). Same is true for the Security System Upgrade (which requires the Keyless module) but it requires a little more work than the Keyless install does.

Here's the writeup I did of the install on my car:
