Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.
I have been in this business since 1975 and also teach automotive repair. I am confident
we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill
level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to
get to satisfactory results. Please be patient!
I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in
return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there
is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I
can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you
through it.

That is too new for me to have information on, but try the owners manual first, then look in the glove box and at the kick panel low to high side of the panel. Also, look at the section where your knees face when your sitting in the seat at the underside of that panel.

Thanks, Ron

We have a 2016 Outback 3.6 with electrical malfunctions. We had the Outback into service last year and it's back in today. Initially, the radio would not shut off by pressing the button. The only way to stop the radio was to turn off the ignition, Small problem. However, twice last week, the Outback was immobilized while driving (actually in our driveway and at a parking lot). The real wheels froze up and the tow truck operator noticed that the rear wheels were literally not rotating as the Outback was being winched. The electronic parking light was not lit red.
