Shaky logic here.
FPCU can fail other than by shorting to ground.
If fuse was blown,it would stay blown.
More to the point,they don`t share the same fuse.#13 for the solenoid,#5for the FPCU.
Blown #13 = no ignition,or temp,fuel gauges.

Perhaps your thinking of the ASV rev sensor.
It is powered by #13.

Actually, I'm thinking of the EA82 setup from an '87. It has only one REV sensor and it controls fuel pump and ASV.:confused: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

I don't know why but I thought this thread was about an 87 not an 83. Admittedly different.

I don't have my 83 manual here with me to look at, but Naru sounds like he's right.

My Subaru finally works! Despite generating spark and appearing to be fine, my distributor was in fact bad. Once I had Philbin do a complete rebuild on it, the car started working great again :grin: It now starts instantly, hot or cold. Thanks for all the help everyone!
