Default 05/06 Legacy GT and OBXT Service Bulletin

Looks like there is a service bulliten out on 05 and 06 Legacy and Outbacks with manual transmissions.

Got a letter in the mail today asking me to go in for issues pertaining to the radiator cooling fan relay that could lead to damage in the ECM.

I don't own my legacy anymore, just giving those who do a heads up if they missed the recall.

Service Program WVB-12
Radiator Cooling Fan Relay #2

introduction
Subaru of America, Inc. (SOA) has determined that certain 2005-06 MY Subaru Legacy / Outback 2.5L M/T Turbo models require Radiator Cooling Fan Relay #2 replacement.
The original Radiator Cooling Fan Relay #2 installed on affected vehicles may create an electrical surge to the radiator cooling fan circuit within the Engine Control Module (ECM). The electrical surge may damage the ECM cooling fan circuit and cause the radiator cooling fan to run continuously whenever the engine is running.
This service program will involve replacement of the Radiator Cooling Fan Relay 2. It will also involve checking the ECM radiator cooling fan circuit for proper operation. If it is determined
that the ECM radiator cooling fan circuit has been damaged, replacement of the ECM will also be necessary.
AFFECTED VEHICLES
• 2005~2006MY

Potentially affected vehicles are identified in the VIN range chart below. Not all vehicles within the VIN range are affected. Prior to performing repairs, confirm coverage for potentially
affected vehicles by using the Vehicle Coverage Inquiry in the Dealer Communication System (DCS).

It's seven pages long, but that's the gist.

Oh yeah, It's a "Service Campaign" not a recall. Subaru has never had a Federally Mandated recall.

I love Subaru and all, but that really does seem like semantics.

Recall is safety stuff.
Frying ECU is not safety.

Semantics or not it's an important distinction to make. It means Subaru steps up and takes care of issues before the government has to force them to.

You tell me. You dug up a 7 year old thread to post this, yet the answer to your question is in the second post.
