  1. ('14-'18) 2016 - Help! Lane Drift Correcting Automatically - any ideas?

    Driver-Assist Technology and EyeSight
    I call it Auto-Nudge, and I have successfully disabled it on my 2016 and 2018. I'm away from home right now, so I can't give you a reference to the manual.
  2. ('14-'18) 2016 - Help! Lane Drift Correcting Automatically - any ideas?

    Driver-Assist Technology and EyeSight
    It can be turned off. I can't recall the procedure but it’s in the book.
  3. ('06-'08) 2008 - Radio Antenna lacks reception

    Interior and Electronics
    Scoobymods got reconfigured a while ago, breaking all pre-existing links. Kind of like things are here right now. Try going there and doing a search for a post by Peaty containing some relevant word.
  4. ('14-'18) 2015 - 6 to 9 months headlight bulb life - is this normal?

    Lighting and Electrical
    Any evidence of corrosion at the terminals or the socket?
  5. ('03-'05) 2005 - Interior lights not working

    Lighting and Electrical
    Both DOOR and ON positions on the switch are fed from the same always-on fuse, as shown in Bobby's diagram above. When the door switches are activated, the BIU completes the path to ground, and it provides the fading function when the doors are shut. The ON position of the switch, however, makes...

  7. ('19+) 2019 Forster Cabin Air Filter

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    In the good old days we made our own replacements out of cut-up furnace filters. :)
  8. ('19+) Permanently disable Auto Stop/Start - technical discussions ONLY (merged thread)

    Auto Stop / Start
    Bridging the LED could do bad things upstream, especially if it's controlled by a module.

  10. ('19+) 2019 - Sorting USB Music?

    Interior and Electronics
    Worth a try. With backup!
  11. ('19+) 2019 - Flat tire - can we get away with only replacing 1 tire?

    Wheels and Tires
    No donut spare on the front because of steering. If it's the front that's flat, then it's: Donut to the rear Rear to the front Front to the shop I've replaced only one tire on two very new Foresters, with no ill effects.
  12. ('06-'08) 2008 XT - worked on the headlight, now battery is dead? - SOLVED!

    Lighting and Electrical
    I can't help with the big problem, but as for the 'DRL bulb'? DRLs on the 2003-2008 SG series are simply the low beam headlight bulbs, operating at less than full brightness by virtue of a resistor in series with the bulb. What bulb are you referring to?
  13. ('03-'05) 2005 XT - DIY â–ş Making the Rear Intermittent Wiper interval Longer

    Interior and Electronics
    A nice piece of work. Thanks for sharing this with us. I will link it from our DIY forum for ease of long term access. That's an honor here. Since the later model years seem to be going increasingly digital in how they control things, I would suspect that this mod might no longer be applicable...
  14. ('19+) 2019 - Sorting USB Music?

    Interior and Electronics
    As I recall, the setup in my 2016 and 2108 is that it plays in order of installation of folders on the USB drive, and then in order of installation of files within each folder. Albums as such are meaningless unless in their own folder. YMMV

    News, Rumors and Media
    In New Hampshire you can't touch your phone, even at a red light. But you can legally lose yourself in the touch screen of your head unit.
  17. ('14-'18) 2015 - recommendation for HID lights?

    Lighting and Electrical
    I recommend starting out with low beams. There are still some kinks to work with the highs due to DRLs.
  18. ('14-'18) 2015 - recommendation for HID lights?

    Lighting and Electrical
    The SL1 LEDs by Diode Dynamics are well rated here. Plug and Play replacements. Not cheap, but worth it. Hang on for potentially upcoming Labor Day sale.
  19. ('14-'18) 2017 - Warning lights? - Updated!

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    Check yellow connectors under the front seats whenever an airbag light comes on. Even if they look properly connected, give them a strong wiggle. This is especially common a problem if you have stashed anything of bulk under the seat.

    Assuming that you're referring to the 2014 XT, I changed the prefix to SOLD. I would have closed the thread, but I haven’t yet figured out how to do that in this new setup.
