Customer Question
Hi I have a...

Hi I have a 2004 outback premium model. Auto

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Outback yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have replaced the instrument cluster with a second hand one after the fuel gage failed. ,after fitting it. The car will not start. It tries to for a few seconds then stops

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Takes a little more to wind over then starts. Immediately stops

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No. I'm thinking it is just the security system As key is lit up on dash.

hey how are you

try this disconnect that way if you have not already , if not get it scanned using a capable scanner that can the anti theft module and post fault codes back to me and I can help you further and be more accurate and we want be guessing , a lot parts involved to throw parts at it

MASTER RESET

1- Disconnect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )you can use any electrical wire as an extension if battery cables don't reach .

do not worry no spark will happen since we took power source out of the loop by taking both cables off, by touching them we are taking all residual power off the modules to reset them as if we using factory scanner .

2- Hold cables Together for 60 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 30 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

You are very welcome :)
