    Hi, Some weeks ago my radio starts to run on and off. Sometimes I start my car and it's runnning on and other time it's not running. Text radio and menu is impossible to Read. Do you know what can be the trouble ? Anybody already got this ?

    I have the H621SFG650 head unit installed in my '10 Forester as shown below. I want to see what reasonable options exist when it comes to modifying/replacing the head unit. I would prefer to try to modify the software on it as that option is free. I know it has a Bluetooth receiver in it as...

    2021 Forester. First time Subaru owner, the highlighted playing radio station indicator does not move to any other row other than the row it's on. The radio will go through all 18 stations however, the highlighted indicator will not flip through them. Is there somewhere to change the settings...

    I would like to replace my stock radio with one with aux(soldered to the stock radio?) or Bluetooth or both. I am worried about buying a smart radio that doesn't fit the Centre console. So any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    My 2015 2.5i has the notorious bluetooth connection issues, and I'm planning to replace the head unit, but I'm really not stoked on the prospect of needing to wire in an adapter to keep the steering wheel controls. If I'm understanding correctly, the post-facelift (2016+) models have different...

    Hello - This morning I noticed a strange problem with my radio and steering wheel arrow buttons that control the radio stations on my (new to me) Subaru Forester 2019. I tried googling, without finding a solution. The arrow buttons on the steering wheel that usually switch through the radio...

    Hello, I have a 2010 forester that has been without sound for a couple months now. At first the speakers would give a loud pop when i turned the car on/off, regardless if the radio was turned on. Then that eventually turned into the radio cutting in and out while I was driving for no apparent...

    I was installing a new din head unit and thought I shorted my cabin fuse #9 (constant power to trip odometer, clock, dome lights, and radio). Or so I thought. I bought a new fuse and fuse tester, pulled out the old fuse #9 and it's still good, so even with a new fuse installed my clock and radio...

    Hi all, Anyone aware of a wiring harness that enables steering wheel volume controls on a Pioneer aftermarket radio? I'm pretty green when it comes to the electrical system/ controls. I want to throw an aftermarket radio in with my new speakers and amp, but wondering if I'll lose full...

    Hi guys, I’ve just been given a 1998 2.0 sti forester however it has an option upgrade on the stereo, and the stereo that is in the car is not the one that is in the owners manual, it does not play cds at all, I know it’s tuned to Japanese frequency’s and that’s why the radio doesn’t work, but...

    Good morning! I recently noticed that my Forester has stopped streaming my music automaticly when I get in and start. The phone pairs and I can hear my notifications through the speakers, However my screen says Media not available. I have auto play enabled. I have all permissions allowed on the...

    Thought I would start here to see if anyone else has or had this problem. Rear speakers just stopped working. I am asking here incase someone else has had this problem to, so I would have a good Idea of where to start looking for the problem. Both rear speakers are out. Thanx in advance for...

    This may already be covered here but I discovered on a YouTube video where you could push and hold the home button and push the tune button twice quickly while still holding the home button to be greeted by a fun information screen. You can also push and hold the home button and while holding...

    To start from the beginning, I recently bought a 2001 Forester, everything original. Absolutely nothing wrong with the car, but the speakers were blown to hell and back, so I figured it would be a cheap fix. Replaced those and everything was fine. Radio would sometimes not work. It would be on...

    Hello there! I noticed the Forester has a cool feature that keeps the radio on for a short while after you shut the engine off until you open the driver door. I really like this feature and wanted to keep it. I have added amplifiers to my Forester and tapped the ACC wire behind the factory...

    I've been thinking of ways to install a car head unit into where the dash storage cubby is, or even place a separate display up there with my head unit where the radio normally is. Does anyone know if there is a mod available to accept these sort of things, or any knowledge of how the dash...

    Since I need to replace my 2010's radio ( ('09-'13) - 2010 - Only one speaker works and... ) I am thinking of one of those tablet replacements (with radio tuner), has anyone done this? Love it? Hate it? Things you'd do differently? One big question I have is- do you need to put it on a cell...

    Started having an issue with my speakers. I can still hear the music playing but is sounds “fuzzy” or like I don’t have good signal. This happens with Sirius XM, and if playing music through my phone plugged in or through Bluetooth. The only time the music sounds normal is when it is on FM.

    Ever since they "fixed" my rear hatch by replacing its control unit (or whatever they did), my radio no longer recognizes my iPhone when I connect it. I get the "No device attached" or "Do you want to add a device", but that's for BlueTooth and I have it plugged into the USB port. I have to...

    I have a 2010 Subaru Impreza. On my way to work today the front wipers started going without me turning them on and stayed on until I shut my car off. I checked all of the fuses and found my fog light and rear wiper fuses were blown and that was it. I also pulled the front wiper fuse to turn the...
