Hey,

Got a 2nd hand outback which is throwing up 44 error codes (its currently at the mechanic)

Anyone seen this before?

ABS also isn't working - i'm thinking this is a bad computer?

Post the codes.

I don't see how it can be 44. Got a screen shot of the scan? Print out?

What kind of scan tool is your mechanic using?

The only way there would be a list this long is if all the modules were scanned and there are codes copied in related systems between the modules. If there are a large number of codes set on various modules, the first thing to look at is the battery. Then move to grounds, fuses, look for water damage.

Can't at the moment - but they throw up pretty much after resetting them and starting the car.

check under the dash to make sure the GREEN ''test'' connectors are not hooked up. they should not be hooked up.

do both radiator fans run all the time??

Turned out to be a bad battery connection. AFter he cleaned them, and cleared the codes - everything appears normal - apart from burnt oil in the transmission.
