    Hey everyone! I bought a 2001 Outback not too long ago, and being my first Subaru i've had a lot to learn. Decided to go from simply repairing it to actually making some improvements, the first of which being a JDM headlight conversion. This was a bad idea. The wiring has me stumped, bar from...

    My 2014 Outback Ltd. 2.5 4-cylinder with Harmon Karman stereo failed spectacularly after California's mega-rainstorm in October. After the storm, just before we heard water sloshing around in the rear passenger footwell, we had turned on the radio, only to have it quickly go from staticky to...

    Update 2: Soldering the hatch did in fact help with a lot of symptoms including random braking and getting shocked/feeling static. Still getting engine braking and TCC lockups type symtoms. Swapped the pan and did my third drain and fill. Helped smooth out shifting just like each of the...

    A little backstory to help you understand the issues... There are, from what it appears, some loose wiring issues. I've experienced this issue twice in the past. The first time I woke up after a pretty heavy snowfall, tried starting my Outback, and there was no power anywhere in the vehicle...

    My car was jumped backwards several years ago and since then I have been going thru alternators and batteries like crazy. Last night my battery totally died and I went to Autozone and they put a new battery in it. The battery was tested and it was at 45%. Alternator could not be tested bc...

    Hi there! I have a 1998 Subaru Outback Legacy. A few weeks ago my driver side door decided to stop opening from the outside. No problem, I planed to take the cover off and reattach the cable. However, over the last six days, the driver side door will randomly pop open while we are driving and...

    Hello. I just purchased a 2017 Outback Limited at the end of June and still am well within my 100% paid parts and service from the dealer. It only had 7,000 miles and the carfax was clean. Looked like it was mostly a dealer car. While driving in the rain I noticed my clock wasn't changing the...

    I have noticed that both my climate control fan speed and my headlight brightness will not stay consistent through accelerating/breaking. Not really sure if they are connected, but they seem like it. Any idea where to start looking?

    Hi guys. Have a bit of an issue regarding the interior lights on my 2010 Outback 2.5i. A while back, I did the full LED conversion for the interior and exterior of my vehicle. Unfortunately, before I knew better, I purchased CANBUS LEDs for the interior, which draw more power than traditional...
