  1. Air Conditioning and Ventilation
    I never had this issue in my previous Forester (2017 Premium), but if I'm driving and I set the fan speed, A/C or whatever, then when I turn off the car and come back later, the car never "remembers" the fan settings or A/C and I have to set everything again. Is this normal? Is there a setting...
  2. Air Conditioning and Ventilation
    Hi, Recently my AC stopped blowing cold air. At first I though it was likely a leak in the refrigerant line (I had a similar issue last summer that was fixed by the Subaru dealership replacing my condenser under warranty), but upon checking the low side pressure with my car off and cold, the...

    Low pressure switch is preventing the compressor from cycling on my '04 Forester XS. Book says to pull connector from pressure switch and short to get compressor to cycle so I can recharge the system. Switch connector has 4 pins. Which two do I short to get the compressor to cycle?

    So I know there's tons of threads about the A/C not working on models between 14-17 it seems. So I'm wondering what your thoughts are for our problem. Last year in 2018 we had a leak and didn't want the dealership to fix since they wanted around $700 to diagnose, fix and recharge the system. I...
