  2. 1998 Subaru Legacy driver side door problems

    Problems & Maintenance
    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...
  3. Electronic issues in rain

    Problems & 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...

    Gen 3: 2005-2009
    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...
  5. Inconsistent fan speed and headlights

    Gen 2: 2000-2004
    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?
  6. SOLVED: Rear Dome Light Stays On When Set To "Door"

    Gen 4: 2010-2014
    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...

  10. Adding an interior power hatch button and door lock toggle to the rear cabin

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    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...
