ive been having a random low idle and ocasionally stalling problem on my 98 subaru legacy outback with the 2.5 manual tranny when coming to stop signs. the codes i pulled from the computer are
P1507- Idle Air System Malfunction (fail-safe)
p1540 - Vehicle speed sensor malfunction
p0500 - Vehicle speed sensor 2 malfunction
p0400 - EGR Malfunction code
i have been driving it for a couple weeks now and the problem got worse with the stalling.. but the car always fired right back up and ran good with no hesitations. however, recently i tried starting my car and when i turned the key nothing happened... the battery is good and so is the alternator. after i tried turning the key a couple of times i gave up and i heard a relay clicking really fast under the dash while i wasnt even trying to start the car. i tried starting it one more time and the fuel gauge pegged on zero and the temperature gauge pegged to the max and it still didnt start. i took the keys out of the ignition and the check engine light, airbag light, and oil light stayed on. so i disconnected the battery and tried it 15 minute later and still nothing. all the dash warning lights stay on too...
it all started after my old alternator went bad and i replaced it with a new one. it sounds to me like i have a major short somewhere that is confusing the car to death.
does anyone know whats going on?? please let me know. any comments would be greatly appreciated.
