Welcome to the USMB.
Does the power light on the dash flash when you start up the car? If so, the TCU is indicating there is a code stored. Either way, I'd recommend checking to see if there are any codes stored in the TCU. Instructions to pull the codes are on my site.

Does the power light illuminate at all? It should come on steady with the key in the ON position, but engine not running, should stay lit for a few seconds after startup, and then turn off.

Check fuse 14 labeled EGI/TCU.
Here's a listing of the fuses and diagram
The TCU is under the driver's kick panel. This picture is looking just under the left side of the steering column

Okay, you should check that the TCU is actually getting power to it. With the key on, check that terminals 14, 1, and 6 have around 12V with a voltmeter.
If the voltages are good, maybe your TCU is bad. Get one with the same letter code on the outside; yours is probably an "EE" code. The 90-91 Legacy had different gears in the transmission and the TCU needs to match it.
