Have Subaru Questions? Ask a Subaru Mechanic and Get Answers ASAP
Hello I will help you with your question,
The problem is that the starter will not energize and turn the engine when you turn the key?
Do the lights come on?
Do you have a voltmeter or 12 volts testlight in case the circuit needs to be checked?
Great, I will be here so let me know how it works
Sorry I was knocked offline, we have storms here today.
If you get no voltage on the small wire I have to ask if you have an aftermarket alarm rather than just the Subaru factory anti theft?
The insurance reader probably won't interfere but you should pull it until we get this started. Most of them just plug in.
Yes, we need to check at the clutch switch. Pull the connector off the switch and see if putting a paperclip in the connection will allow it to crank, if it does the switch is failed.
Let me know if you have power then and I will track down the interrupt and start relays.
Great, wish they all were that easy.
Sure the switch is adjusted properly so it closes when the pedal is on the floor? you can use your meter across the terminals to see if the resistance reading goes to 0 with the plunger on the switch pushed.
All it says is "remove switch" and I would have to see it to know how this one comes out. Can you get it or take a picture?
Can you post a picture? I don't remember every one and it is 15 years old.
From a picture of the new one I think you have a nut on a threaded shaft?
You only have one nut? I have a whole box full of tools so I would need to see it to know what I need to pull out. Can you post a picture?
