Unhappy This one seems more worrisome...

Well, I am now a member of the club here:

* Manual Tranny (STi short throw, factory installed)
* 1-29-02, *93* miles on the odometer!!
* P0546, Exhaust Temp Sensor High Output
* Paul Brothers
* Tech found that connector #4 on the ECM was loose so he connected it. They had to replace the tranny (well, parts of it) before I took delivery due to buzzing I heard during my checkout drive. I now think that's the buzz talked about elsewhere in the forum. I just hope this is it, I want to break the car in and have some fun!!

By more worrisome, I mean it seems like a build quality issue. I sold an American truck due to quality issues, this doesn't give me warm fuzzies!

<EDIT>

* 2-23-02, 155 miles on the odometer
* P0456
* Paul Brothers
* Foudn root of same problem, defective wiring harness in the firewall, causing intermittent short on that sensor. Replaced sensor and either replaced or repaired harness. Working like a champ now. I hope I have now fulfilled my statistical amount of defects (~2 per car for Imprezas)
