    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...

    2007 OB 2.5i MT I bought this car about a month ago, guy before me did head gaskets, timing belt, and clutch. Recently the car died on the road, pinned the temp gauge, and will not attempt to crank. Code "ER Hc" is displayed on the odometer. I understand this is a common problem and is usually...

    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...

    I have a 2005 Subaru Outback sedan. Car was jumped backwards and it caught on fire. But it wasn’t charging properly before this. Put 3 “new” alternators in it and batteries. How do I figure out what it is. And btw I didn’t hook up the cables backwards someone else did that. Also the check engine...

    Everyone, recently installed the Curt #56040 trailer wiring harness to my 2020 Outback. I am having an issue where the trailer lights are constantly remaining on, even when the vehicle lights are off, and the car is parked, engine off, and locked. Trailer is a brand new Aluma with LEDs...

    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...
  9. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    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...

    Hey guys, I’m pretty new here so sorry for the lack of knowledge. But I have just finished up a Ej20x swap on my 2005 outback xt, and I have been experiencing very weird problems. First: once past 4500rpm or close to full throttle the car will sputter super hard and lose all power, there are no...

    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...

    2013 Outback (4cyc). Driving this moring for about 20 minutes, easy into town drive and a cool 66 degress. Car was running fine when without warning the 'Check Enginge'; 'BRAKE' 'Traction Control' & 'Cruise Control' lights all came on without any adjustment to those controls. I was not using the...

    Looking for a fully functioning replacement BIU part #88281AG10A (the one with the immobilizer functionality) from 2005-2007 Outback XT or LL Bean (Legacys and I think some other models had this particular part # as well).

    On road trips when I pull into camp after dark, I like to just fold down the rear seats and sleep in the back of the cabin. Subaru doesn't include a door lock toggle or interior hatch button in the rear of the vehicle so I either crawl over the front seats to reach the driver-side lock and hatch...
