Nipper...you're still here!!!
okay all....here's what I found out
I put fuse in FWD holder and still had the TB (BTW...did someone say there should be a FWD lite on the dash console? there isn't)
So...I found the directions (pasted below)---did both and got 2-4...Duty C solenoid
SO.....am I correct that it is NOT good to continue driving like this? It cant be right??
I will put my 2002 Legacy GT on the road if not.....
This sounds like a project.....
I did some searching on this updated site (its new to me since I have not been lurking in quite some time).......and it seems that the search function
is not as "friendly" as before (I did the advanced search too)
It just did not bring up as much as I thought it should have-----I dont know....maybe its just me
Would there be a sticky perhaps that I could go to to see a detailed list of instructions to do this job...with pics??? Including the pitfalls that can happen during the job?
And Gary=-----what are those clutches? I should do this since I am in there?
Definitely a job I am going to do on my back this summer....sigh
Here is the procedure I found for checking the TCU code---
You probably have
a bad duty-c solenoid. Check the TCU codes - if the AT Temp light flashes 16
times on startup then you have stored TCU codes. There is a 6 pin black
connector above the gas pedal and two grounding wires wrapped into the harness
directly above that. Insert one grounding pin into the center pin on the black
connector (blue with yellow trace typically), then follow this process:
1: Turn ignition on, apply brake, and place gear selector in 1. Turn ignition
2: Turn ignition on.
3: Move selector to 2.
4: Move selector to 3.
5: Move selector to D.
6: Depress accelerator pedal slightly.
7: Read morse codes flashes on the AT Temp light. 24 will indicate a bad
duty-c. These are "stored" history codes from previous drive cycles.
8: Turn ignition off, then back on.
9: Move selector to 3.
10: Move selector to 2.
11: Move selector to 1.
12: Depress accelerator pedal slightly.
13: Read codes again. Codes given here are current faults active in the TCU on
the current drive cycle.
