I have a few trouble shooting tips for the problem with your Subaru Forester key fob.

1) Make sure you have the correct key fob part number. There are a couple different part numbers that are almost exactly the same.

2) Wipe the board
The board inside your remote can get a lot more filthy than you think! When the board is dirty it can prohibit the contact to the circuit board when you push down on the button. Simply wiping the circuit board off can make your key fob like new again!
3) The old car battery reset trick
I know this sounds absurd, but it works sometimes and is worth trying. If you exhausted all of the options above, disconnect bot terminals on your car battery for 10 minutes. Then reconnect them and try your key fob. This has worked for many people and I have no idea why. If you do, please comment below to explain.

4) Not sure where you bought the new key fob from, but some of the suppliers on eBay can be knock off quality. Try sending the one you purchased back and order one from here:
