My brother has an Outback Wgn, 1996. Is it OBD I OR OBD II? How do you clear code? Pull battery wire?

Many thanks, SubeeTed

I think you need to use a scan tool to clear a set code for OBD-2. I don't think removing the battery connection will clear it. I may be wrong, but I think that is correct.

Yes, removing the battery will clear the codes.

Yes, my 96 Legacy GT is OBD-2. There is actually a sticker on the under side of the hood that states it. Also, pulling the battey will clear the codes. I did mine over night to be safe.
