  1. EE20 - 2.0L Diesel
    Just had my Forester in for inspection, 2016 2ltr Diesel, and I had an advisory for codes c1413 and c1422 which I believe are ABS/TC related? Car is driving as normal and no lights on the dash. If anyone has experienced the same codes or any advice how id go about sourcing the issue or...
  2. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    My 2015 XE intermittently displays ABS, VDC and HSA Warning lights on the dash. There is also a worrying loss of power - scary on the motorway - which release of the throttle and re-application has, so far, sorted. I recently had a battery problem - went flat after boot left open for 90...
  3. Brakes
    ‘16 Forester Prem 79k mi. Subaru says brakes are good. My brakes shudder/vibrate only when slowing from 60mph+ and I think only going downhill, vibration stops below about 40mph. Vibration is moderate, gets worse the harder I brake, and does appreciably extend stopping distance. I can slow from...
  4. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hello, Lately, I have been driving and then all of a sudden the Traction, Incline, Hot Temp, and ABS light all come on at the same time. Then when I turn the car off, they are not on when I restart it. I do not notice a change in driving or any sounds. Also, I feel like I go through an...
  5. Lighting and Electrical
    2018 Subaru Forester So my battery wasn't holding a charge during our last 3-week -40 deep freeze. Each time the battery was low, the ABS, traction control and hill assist lights would come on and each time we charged up the battery the warning lights would turn off. This is normal according to...
  6. Brakes
    Hello, I recently replaced the ABS sensor on my 2008 Forester. After replacing the ABS sensor, the ABS light has gone out, but the red ( ! ) brake light remains illuminated on the console. Given the timing of the ABS issue, I'm assuming the brake light being on is related, but I expected this...
  7. Brakes
    I really like my '08 as its the last year of the wagon body style. But one of my biggest complaints is the lack of an electronic brake-based limited slip (TCS/Xmode). I've gotten stuck in two-wheel spin many times even with the stock rear mechanical LSD. Are there any software modifications...

    Dear Forester Community, I've run through the diagnostics procedure for a DTC 38 (Abnormal Outlet Solenoid Valve Circuit(s) in ABSCM&H/U Steps 1 through 3 (Input voltage fine, Ground circuit fine - no obvious poor contact in connectors, etc.) I'm now at Step 4 which is reset & I still get a...
  9. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hello, I just replaced the wheel bearing (rear - right) & the brake pads on my Forester XT 2014. They were really worn out. I even got ABS, HA, & VDC lights come on. No issues found with a Blue Driver dongle. I did a visual inspection on the ABS sensor (right hand side) when I replaced the part...
  10. Transmission and Driveline
    I have a 99 Forester that I just replaced the transmission in. No shops in my town do transmission work, so I had a family friend replace it. It was the correct transmission and everything worked fine for the trip from his house to mine and then to the gas station. Now it’s kicking again when I...
  11. Brakes
    I bought an 98 forester so I was disappointed to find out that it does not have a LSD especially since I do some overlanding/offroading with it. I was debating getting a lsd but I also have read they are not the most effective. And a LSD would only help split torque in the rear. If only I could...
