  1. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hello, I bought a used 2006 Subaru Forester in January 2018 with ~51,000 miles and have driven it since with an odometer reading of around 91,000 miles now. I have had persistent issues every year or so with the A/C running hot or weak, followed by blinking ABS/brake/engine lights, and...
  2. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    First of all, I am an idiot, I know it and soon you will too. That out of the way: I have a 2005 Forester 2.5X, 208k miles. It's got some minor oil and coolant leaks but has been running reliably. The alternator belt was in bad shape and it's due for its second timing belt change. I bought the...
  3. Lighting and Electrical
    I’m having an issue with my alternator the hub up on top is smoking. It’s obviously getting very hot and I’m talking about the rubber boot the connection underneath it has a lot of sulfate on it. I replaced my alternator about two months ago and the car runs great and charges fine. What could be...
  4. Lighting and Electrical
    Hiya Forester community! My 2002 is starting to show some quirks I can't quite figure out. He's at 260k and bought it used at 235k. Suggestions point to a loose alternator belt or needing a whole new alternator, but that seems far left field. Also I'm a full time student without a job living off...
  5. Lighting and Electrical
    So a while ago my battery light came on and eventually I had to replace the alternator which fixed the problem. After about 4 months my battery light started coming on again after driving about 45 minutes of driving on the highway, when I rev the engine it goes off again and if it stop and...
  6. Lighting and Electrical
    Hello all! My 2010 Subaru Forester's alternator over charged and that made the battery over charged. To fix everything it will cost just over $1000. My Subaru has been mostly perfect with only a few problems over the years. It has over 125,000 miles on it. I want an honest answer. Is it worth...
  7. Lighting and Electrical
    Hello everyone, this is my first post in this great site, I hope someone can explain me if this is a bad or normal function in my forester sport 2020. My problem is with the battery voltage retention, I use the forester 5 continuous days and if i don use one day the battery is dead, the...
  8. FA20DIT - 2.0L Direct-Injection/Turbo (2014-2018)
    SO I've been dealing with this P0300 for 2 summers on my '14 FXT. Along with the code came hesitation/jitters on acceleration and not the smoothest idling. Still very drivable, but it's in limp mode almost always now. Last season I found a post on the FXTfacebook saying a MAF sensor cleaning...
  9. Interior and Electronics
    I'm about to upgrade my audio system again (It is an addicting apple to bite into...) and I'm trying to figure out if my stock electrical system will handle the job. I already have a JL JX1000D amp running two 10" alpine subs @ 2 ohms in the back, and aftermarket Kenwood head unit, that puts 20W...
