Don't have a diagram to look for a relay or fuse ...... if that would do it.

Outback wagon 2000

50 miles to the dealer

Any other forums?

#1. Door lock switch on drivers side IS NOT turning the alarm off...
(There is usually a reason people rely on the remote, and the drives door lock switch is usually the first in the system to go, since it gets the most use locking and unlocking by remote!)

I know this is going to be too simple for most people to follow, but take my word for it, I've seen this a hundred times before...

GO AROUND TO THE PASSENGER DOOR AND TRY YOUR KEY THERE!
Drives side door lock switch has been worked to death, go use the passenger side with the key, see if that works...
(usually does)
---------------------------------------------

#2. Go to dealership and get new remote if this one isn't working.

They usually aren't cheap, but they are cheaper than having the drivers door gutted to put the new alarm/lock switch in...
