Customer Question

I have a 2007 Forester XT, after much service the battery was disconnected for an extended period of time. When I go to start I have a Check Engine light solid and system check flashing. It cranks but then shuts off immediately. Scanned the system and no codes present.

It cranks, the starts, but then stalls if I understood correct.

We need to check the basics since there are no codes.

Will it run on starting fluid?

What is the fuel pressure?

What is the theft light doing with the key on?
