How to Replace a Subaru Key Fob


If your Subaru key fob has been lost or damaged, you can have it replaced by any Subaru dealer. A replacement fob for any model and year Subaru costs $120 plus $20 for programming specifically for your car. Most fobs come with a battery, but extra batteries cost about $5.

Things You'll Need

  • Copy of Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
  • Car registration
  • Write down the Vehicle Identification Number of your Subaru. The VIN is located on a metal plate on the dashboard and on the driver's door frame. The dealer will need this and your registration to sell you a new key fob.

  • Make an appointment to get a new key fob and take your car to the dealer. You can find a local dealer at Subaru's website: If you've lost your keys completely and can't drive, ask if the dealer can send a technician to your home or have the car towed to the dealer.

  • Purchase as many key fobs as you need for yourself and your family. The dealer will have them all programmed while you wait. Keep one in a safe place in case you lose your keys or your regular one becomes damaged; a fire safe is a good place.
