Angry Tach wire location 1999 Legacy Brighton Remote Starter

Hey can someone please tell me where I can tap Tach wire for my remote starter. I can remote start just fine but it keeps engaging starter every 15-30 seconds. So I think the unit does not know the car has been started w/o tach input. I've read and read then finally posted for HELP...

Thank you TurboL...fortunately I've 2200cc (2.2L) engine in my Legacy. Are B134, B135 and B136 located by the passenger foot well behind the plastic cover on the side wall?

Those are ECU pinouts. You're going to pull up your passenger side carpet, and undo the footplate that guards the ECU. You'll see the corresponding plugs there, you can trace them back or splice directly in there.

If your engine has sparkplug wires and not coil packs, you can get tach from the distribution center where the 4 spark plug wires go on the intake manifold... should be a plug with a few wires... get a multimeter and test, one will be the right wire.

Alternatively, (At least this works on newere Subies, if you have a tach on the cluster, you can pull the cluster and get a wire there.)

I pulled carpet and took off metal plate covering the ECU. Found B134 connector and PIN 30 is blank. My car specs are 1999 Subaru Legacy L (Brighton) with 2.2 L engine and AT transmission. Looking at the coil with spark plug wires connected, I see one connector w/clip going to coil. I've read numerous post here stating "Blue wire with red dots at coil" but I'm not able to find it. I'm looking at ECU now but the above diagram is not for 2.2L. PLEASE HELP as my interior is in disarray right now and want to put it together before I forget all.

Use a multimeter set to AC volts... either pierce the insulation with a probe or try sliding the probe into the connector.

There is a connector with four wires at the coil. Tested blue wire with multimeter set to AC and still not getting tach signal.
