Can someone please tell me a couple of things - 1. Where is the TCM located and 2. which solenoid inside the transmission pan is the line pressure control solenoid. I want to find the problem with my car going into 3rd strainght after moving from 1st and that is where it stays. I have checked the Dropping resistor which is ok.

Welcome to USMB, Raman.


If you will put your query in the "Newer Generations--1990 to Present . . . " forum you'll have a better chance of getting answers.

maybe a mod can move this to New Gen?


is the transmission light blinking 16 times at start up - if so it has a stored code to tell you if you can figure out the crazy NSA handshake to get the light to blink you the code.


TCM is right above your feet when you're driving.  little silver (color may vary) box bolted up under the dash.  like two screws hold it in place, real simple. TCM failure on Subarus is extremley rare, I wouldn't expect that to be the issue but maybe you're just looking for wires to test with.


any history on the car?  accidents, or...?


if trans pan got dented that could infringe upon some wiring.
