Default What did I do to the LEgacy???

So I just got my tactrix cable and loaded up enguniuty and loaded the latest definiotion. Then I loaded up ECUflash and then plugged it into the car which was running, when I clicked 05-06 LGT in ECUflash the car instantly died. I pulled the cord out of the OBD2 port and then tried to restart teh car....would not turn over...waited about10 seconds and tried to start her again. It was really hard to get her to turn over but she finally did and now the check engine light is on and the cruise light is flashing

First read this a few times:

http://www.scoobypedia.co.uk/index.p...ReflashingECUs

I am assuming that the car will run now:

Next try resetting the ECU with enginuity, and then try reading your rom again starting with the car off, and following the instructions.

Good luck

so you tried to flash the car while it was running ?
first you shouldn't even be able to do that
im not sure how a legacy is set up , but with the wrx,sti's you need to have the green test connectors under the dash plugged in
with them plugged in the car won't start but you can read write the ecu
with them un-plugged you can start the car but cant read write

I did not try and flash just read the ROM. The LGT does not have the green and white connectors...

Did you clear the codes? Any luck with the reading while the car is not running?

I have the same year LGT as you. We don't have the connectors on the Tactrix cable, but we do have a pair of connectors under the carpet below the glovebox.

Follow the scoobypedia instructions, they worked for me.
