Tripped sensor identification

The security indicator light flashes when the alarm system has been triggered. Also, the number of flashes indicates the location of unauthorized intrusion or the severity of impact on the vehicle.

When the ignition switch is turned to the “ON” position, the indicator light will illuminate for 1 second and then flash as follows:

● When a door or rear gate (Outback) was opened: 5 times ● When the trunk (Legacy) was opened: 4 times ● When a strong impact or multiple impacts were sensed: twice (only models with shock sensors (dealer option)) ● When a light impact was sensed: once (only models with shock sensors (dealer option))
