Default diagnostic ran

I work at the dealership folks. Therefore, sadly, any problems I have get put on the back burner! kind of pisses me off but, I ran a diagnostic last night and pulled up error codes for misfire on all four cylinders! Also, the scanner says I have no cancel code present in my cruise control-- it does not work either probably related to the speedo problem.

Spend much of your time diagnosing problems? If you did, you would know that the cruise control cancel code comes up every time - if you haven't actually used the cruise control on the road. It can't see the cancel code until after the CC has been set, and then cancelled. If you're having speedo problems with no DTC for a speed sensor in the ECU, then the CC should work, since it uses the same signal.
Gee, I wish I could give you some good diagnostic tips on your speedo problem (whatever it may be) and your misfire codes, but I'm kinda busy.....

Have a Nice Day? buzy man

Look my friend, I sell Subarus. I don't service them. So in the first place I should not even have to use a code scanner, my service dept. should take care of it. In the second place, your eye rolling and condescending tone are not apreciated. No, I do not spend much time diagnosing problems. It's not my job. It is my car and therefore I make an exception. I am merely trying to solicit information that will help expedite my car's repairs. What I am not trying to do is solicit attitude from arrogant, misguided shadetree mechanics-- I'm far too busy for that!:monkey:

brush it off, man...guys like WRXSTi69 just like to talk a big game to try and sound smart online...he probably has a hard time tying his shoes and finding his car keys so his only release is to insult someone like who was merely sharing some info and venting your frustrations

wrxsti69 is typically a jackass in his replies so just ignore him. Man, I feel for you breadman. You bought the car like the rest of us, so you are a customer at this point not an employee. If they keep that **** up I would find a job selling Porsches and then raise a stink with SOA.

My apologies to Gingerbreadman. When he stated that he worked at the dealership and was scanning for codes, I assumed he was in the service shop. Gingerbreadman, if your service dept can't diagnose this for you, give me the symptoms and I'll give you a hand - if I can just tie these workboots........

Default of all the stupid things!

Well folks, after my service guys sent the ECU away to get it re mapped or whatever they do, It was reinstalled and the problems persisted. However, One of our techs, Ed, took over the problem and said something to me about possibly having to "go deep" on this one. Well, in a matter of about five minutes, my car was up and running like a champ. The problem? The main engine ground wire had come loose! A new bolt and a couple of wrench turns later, all was well again. Thank you Ed!

Note to WRXSTI69: Appology accepted and I too, am sorry for calling you an arrogant shade-tree mechanic. I will take you up on your offer if I have any more problems. And if you need any help with those work boots...
