  1. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hi, I have a ‘98 SF (basic) with an OBD II port. I’ve bought two devices to read the codes, but neither get any data 🤷‍♂️. I’ve since heard that early Foresters required ‘certain’ types of OBD II readers, but can’t find out ‘which’. Any help appreciated. PS: I’m in Australia if that makes any...
  2. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    This is on a 2015 Subaru Forester. My sister plugged in a connector into the OBD2 connector to get supposedly better fuel mileage. Once she started to drive it came up with an ABS issue, a misfire issue and a transmission failure issue. Does anyone have a clue as to what this device has done?

    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...

  7. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hi guys, figured this would be the right place to ask about OBD-related stuff. I have an '04 and recently got an OBD-2 display off Amazon (this one to be specific). It reads battery voltage fine, but it doesn't read anything else. I.e. it reads RPMs and speed as zero at all times, and reads the...
  8. Transmission and Driveline
    I've searched the forum but haven't found much. I have a 2019 Forester Touring and am looking to monitor my CVT temperature with an iOS device. Can anyone recommend a reader/app combo that works with iPhone or iPad? Is there even a CVT temp monitor that reads the actual temperature?

    I am a Subaru Ascent owner, but I want to spread the word about this awesome app. note: it currently only supports WiFi adapters, but the developer says he is working on BLE adapters for a future release. Here is a line to the app: ‎ActiveOBD Here is a link to the discussion on Ascent Forums...
