Hi everyone, my name is Vhic and i'm new here. I just have a question. This is my first time to own a Subaru (2009 Forester, non-turbo, with 228T km already) and I just noticed (I will have to observe again) that the Temperature blue light is always on. What's the best thing to do? Thank you so much!

I had a Nissan about 20 years ago that always stayed on hot. Here's what I found:

The electrical connector to the temp sensor (usually near the thermostat) was corroded. With Nissan, no voltage passing reads "Hot". Perhaps with Subaru, no voltage reads "Cold". Take off the connector and clean it with sandpaper and contact cleaner and see if that makes a difference. Clean both the male and female connectors. Only takes a few minutes.

Hope this helps.

if blue light is always on .. take it in for repair

The first thing I would check is the thermostat which might be stuck open and preventing the engine from reaching normal operating temperature.

Welcome to the forums @vhic.delaserna and great first question/post...

I totally concurr with Post #3 by @RidingWV. Check the sensor as they are not "life of vehicle" units.

And...
