Does anyone ACTUALLY KNOW how to do the TC lockup mod?

and the TC lock up mod is news to me. i haven't heard of it before.
search for ''transcodes'' and see if you can learn how to read the actual trans code. there is a black? connector under the dash and you have to ground out pin# 6, i think. do a search.

besides before you do any mod you have to find out why you have a fault light. Did you ever think that the trouble light can be telling you the fault is keeping your TC from locking up like it should?
When was the last time the fluid was changed, as that can affect it, as well as a few other sensors.
There realy is no lockup mod for subarus because of the way it works, but as i say, your car your money.

Getting the code is free, bring the code back here and they will help you fix it right.

Now if you want to just override it, that's easy as well. Find the wire (Connector B33, Pin 5 in the diagrams below) and apply 12+ going to the solenoid. I would of course wire up a relay and a switch, but that should be all you have to do. The solenoid will lockup when it gets 12v+. I don't recommend doing it as it will probably fry the solenoid at some point and make sure you fuse everything properly, but if you don't care about any of that, then have at'er batter! There's my disclaimer.
These pics are of a older legacy TCU, but the wires haven't changed, and these pics were handy. I actually have the complete FSM for a 1995 legacy on my computer, but I really don't want to look for it, so there pics will do. The wires are the same either way.
Personally what I would do is test the resistance of the circuit itself and see if there is a short in the circuit, or if the solenoid actually still works before I would go cutting wires. If you need help with diagnosing your Duty B solenoid, then just ask!
