Hi there,

You need to get your car to a Subaru dealer as soon as possible.

Could be anything up to full transmission replacement.

sir i would do that bit i bought the car from the usa and it was crashed infront i got it with the timing plate broken. O opened up the whole engine and saw the crankshaft and everything in perfect condition. I set it back on timimg and closed everything. It starts and works properly. But our subaru agency won't take my car because i bought it in USA and it doesn't have any warranty and here in curacao i'm the only one with this car. That is why i came here to see who can help me.
Our agency's here don't really help us like that. If i put the computer on the car and scan it and tell you the codes would you be able to confirm what my problem is ?
Expert:  Gary replied 10 months ago.

Can you list the codes you have?

Was there any wiring harness damage from the crash?

Have you checked all the fuses are intact?

Gary

when i took out the engine we checked the whole wiring harnass. All the fuses are perfect. I can send you all the codes but i need to borrow my friends computer to connect to the car.
Expert:  Gary replied 10 months ago.

Ok, that sounds ok.

Send the codes when you are ready.

Good night for now.

Expert:  Gary replied 9 months ago.

I would say with that many transmission codes, there is a power or ground supply issue to the TCM.

All the codes appear to be solenoid codes.

You need to reinspect the wiring harness, and possibly the TCM connectors.

Does you scan tool talk to the TCM?

Gary

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Ok thanks.
I will try to check it right away and let you know.
Expert:  Gary replied 9 months ago.

Ok, it may get difficult for me now, since I can't access the workshop manual for your car.

So I hope you do find something else obvious, like a broken wire etc.

Wishing you well in your next step.

Dear *****I have a small question.
At the beginning me brake module was broken i bought one but it was one of en frs ... I assume that is the same thing the seller also told me it's compatible with my car.Do you think it's possible maybe this is sending a wrong signal or somthing ?I donmt really know that is why i ask you
Expert:  Gary replied 9 months ago.

Hi Mahender,

That is certainly a possibility.

Was it accident damaged as well?

It is hard for you with an imported car, might be wise to not buy another in the future, if you have no repairers there.

Here is a idea of what to look for next.
