    Got a laptop? Get Rom Raider and a Vag-Com or Tactrix cable.
    Here's some links:
    RomRaider - Open Source ECU Tools | RomRaider / RomRaider
    RomRaider - Open Source ECU Tools | Documentation / Getting Started
    RomRaider - Open Source ECU Tools | Documentation / Getting Started
    Tactrix Tactrix Openport 2.0 OBD2 Extension Cable

    Google search "Vag-Com 409.1" for current availability of a cable. Should be $10-20.

    I was wondering if I could get some help with my P0420 code. Okay first off I have a 2001 Legacy L 5 speed with about 125,xxx miles on her and the MIL light has been on for about 9 months now for the P0420. I always run 89 octane fuel through her and nothing else. Now what I replaced and did so far is a timing belt kit (the whole kit) thermostat, fuel filter, fuel pump (it went bad) air filter, NGK plugs, Beck Arnley wires and coil pack (that went bad too) vacuum lines, intake manifold gaskets (started to leak as well) head gaskets (were done when I got the car). I'm just running out of ideas and need to get this fixed soon.. another thing every time after I replaced something I always cleared the codes, but before I did I would look at the freeze frame and it always came on with me going around 60 MPH with the car in closed loop operation after about 10-15 miles of travel, except for the last time it was out for about 60 miles then came on.

    Its got a USB cable adapter that I can use with a printer. Haven't tried to connect it to a PC to transfer data. I don't think there's an option for that.

    Hey Cardoc:
    Some of your videos show you using a Genisys Evo scantool. Do you know of a way
    or have you ever tried to transfer a file of scanned sensor data from the tool to a PC?

    I sent you a PM to answer your PM. But, since you posted here, you have to have the fob or work the key cycle on/off to deactivate the alarm. And, without a fob, the alarm will activate when you use the lock button on the door.

    Hey Cardoc......
    Can a Gen 2 outback get a key with the chip inside the key like the Gen 3 ?

    Reason....... If fob fails and you need to get in your car you can unlock with key...but alarm will go off... I know you can turn the key fast 10 times in ignition to stop but what a pain. this happen to me.. but I usually carry a spare fob and key in my bag to I just shut the alarm off . Then just replace battery and good to go. What a pain though. My old 2000 Maxima had chip in key and fob.

    What do you think ?

    The ECM watches the signal from the rear O2 and will change the fuel trim to control the CAT temperature and production. It also uses the data to determine whether the CAT is doing its job proper and will make changes to the fuel/ignition to "save" the CAT if the data is out of spec.
