    Hello Last summer I installed an android head unit on top of the dash with JDM 2din nav boxthing. I had plans to fill the empty hole left by the OEM radio and I'm only now taking action. I ordered a cheap chinese android head unit with trim piece to replace the empty hole with 9" touchscreen...

    We recently purchased a 2019 Forester Limited with about 25K miles. We do traveling and car camping and use a 45 Quart Iceoco refrigerator. It’s a true compressor-driven refrigerator/freezer, and although it draws little current, I wanted to have unswitched 12V available full time with a low...

    I bought a used 2015 XT Touring in December 2021 with ~87k on it. It has been experiencing rough idle and P0300 random misfire codes with no CEL at startup. While poking around this afternoon for any obvious defects or damaged wiring etc that might be causing it, I noticed this detached wiring...

    Hey guys New Year. I have a 2016 Subaru forester and was driving Home when the steering wheel moved forward because the telescoping thing was loose somehow . The car turned off and lost power to the dashboard and the radio. The lights still worked and the door locks worked as well along with the...

    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...

    Hi, I am still struggling to find a replacement engine for my 04 SG in the scarce local market. I am being offered a EJ254 engine, with ECU and mated to an AT (which I would not use). Apparently the donor car was an 02 Legacy (I don't know if JDM or USDM). Compression is good. Does anybody...

    Hi, I have a 2012 Subaru Forester, with the nav package. (Fujitsu Ten, I believe). Recently purchased a Sony XAV-AX100, and have it all hooked up - except for two things: Parking break detection Backup Camera There doesn't seem to be a simple harness to purchase for this; and ae64.com...

    See title. What else could be the issue? I replaced the bulbs once I realized they were completely out and that didn't turn them on. I checked the fuses and none of the fuses are blown. Relays were replaced and the low beams worked once -- long enough for me to get home from my friend's driveway...

    A while back I found a loose green wire with an empty clip near the fuse box in my car (will post pics below). I discovered that that wire was supplying a full 12v of power when the key was turned on. So long story short, I wired that spare power to a switch, to a few light pods on my roof...

    First time posting but here goes nothing. I recently purchased a 2009 Subaru Forester. The factory touch stereo wasnt working, so my buddy decided he would help uninstall it and put in a new one for me. Subaru's and car stereo installations are new to me, but trusted this friend...welp. He cut...

    Hi all! Looking for some advice on how to proceed with a fistful of wiring projects on my 2015 2.5i Premium 6MT. Here's what's on my to-do list: 1) Add LED Fog Lamps: I've got a list of the components I need and I'm'a get either the Morimoto or the Diode Dynamics Yellow lamps. Should be easy -...

    I got my 2014 Forester a little over a year ago. A couple of months after I got it the driver's side dash speaker started fading in and out and now it does not work at all. I switched both of the dash speakers just to see if the speaker itself still worked or if it was an issue with the wiring...

    Wondering if anyone installed the GCS LED Bumper Vent Day Running Lights (DRL) or something similar on their Subaru Forester XT? I am trying to install these vent lights on my 2015 Subaru Forester XT Touring. Ordered these lights from the Subiespeed website, and was shocked to not find...

    Hi, I want/need to upgrade the wiring to my fuel pump, I've been looking online and cannot find a great deal of information on how to do this, particularly for a SG Forester (2005 XT 2.5L; RCM340 Fuel Pump, 740cc injectors). I found some information stating you need a "relay kit" (Other Thread...

    I just replaced the engine in my 2011 Forester X Non-turbo A/T. It had 247k and a #2 cylinder misfire from low compression. The new engine was a 2013 w/ 75k . I didn't swap the engine harness as it looked like all the wiring connectors matched except the Coil Packs (I opted to keep the newer...
