I am new to the forum and to Subaru. So far I love it as I have always wanted one since I saw a Brat when I was a kid. Anyway, this is my problem. I think that I have put this in the wrong place so I will try to fix it. I have a 2001 Forester that has the CEL coming on at times. No running problems. I tried to pull a code with my genaric code reader and just get an error sign. It is not a scan tool just a reader. It works fine on my 2002 Chevy Trailblazer. Do I need a scantool or reader that is brand specific?
