  2. At the dealership we bought the wife's 2016 Forester they have a technology consultant on staff to help customers with those kind of things. But the positioning of the power seats with the remotes is cool, have to try that this weekend. that way I can drive here car without messing up seat position.
  3. Put the A/F sensor in this am. Refreshing not to have to climb under the car. Used a long extension with a wobble adapter and the O2 sensor socket. With the OEM sensor, even had the holding tyewrap to put into the bracket at the right spot. Now just have to fill the tank, and drive to set the evap readiness.
  4. Thanks I found the re-learn idle procedure yesterday. I also had a posting about it and the needed drive cycle to set readiness, but couldn't find it quickly. Problem with having multiple computers is your never sure where you bookmarked the page. What scanner do you use on Subbies that doesn't blow everything away?
  5. Decided to pick up a code reader from Harbor freight. Got the "deluxe" version, can read live data etc. Hooked it up to the 2008 just to play with it. Cleared the code expecting it to come back. It did. But what also happened was I lost my idle setting So I updated the software, and I'll try it again. Anyone else have this problem with their scanner ?
  6. Local Subbie dealers online price for OEM is the same as Autozone's Denso. Going to buy from Dealer as OEM.
  7. Bank 1 Sensor 1 is the front sensor, correct? Denso the one to buy is is there another brand? I'll check the wiring, but at 128,000 it probably due
  8. Stopped at Autozone after my Lowes run. Code P0031 Bank1 Sensor 1 HO2s Heater control Circuit low voltage. Front O2 Sensor? Still interested in getting the reader issue resolved though.
  9. Yesterday the 2008 Outback 2.5i threw a check engine light. So I got my trusty laptop and licensed full version VCDS (Vag-com) cable and hooked it up to use the generic OBDII reader section. It came back with an error that said "car not ISO/OBDII compliant ???? I have used this setup to read both 97 legacys. On the one I even used it to read O2 sensor voltages real time. Did Subaru change the interface on later cars? Hate to have to buy a stand alone reader.
  10. Replaced switch yesterday. For anyone else, to make it easier, take off the triangle shaped trip piece that hides the mirror mount. Three push pin/posts hold it in place. I nicked the door panel on the lower edge before I removed it.
  11. People will hack anything................ But the last time i'm pretty sure it was the hosting server that needed paid. Just re-upped my donation. Greg
  12. I don't need the master multiple switch power window switch, just the stand alone power door lock switch Went up on the local Subbie dealers web parts page, around $25 after 30% reduction. Unless someone has a used one sitting around collecting dust (Wanted ad posted in parts wanted section)
  13. The door lock switch on the drivers side has been intermintant for a while now. Currently not working. And I am getting ready to sell it so time to fix it for the next owner. I know I have to pull the door panel to get to it (hints for removal tricks appreciated). But can the switch be cleaned and reused? Or do I have to source another drivers door lock switch? Thanks Greg
  14. Has anyone come across a teardown guide for pulling the changer apart? Found something to pull the unit from the dash, but nothing on opening it up to retrieve stuck CD's.
