You might find that the idle will eventually even itself out.
The recall isn't the only thing that causes this. Sometimes after replacing a dead battery or resetting the ECM after a check engine light will cause the same condition. It should go away on it's own once the ECM relearns the idle. However, cleaning the throttle body won't hurt at all and will help things along.

Name: Matt D. (Assist Serv. Manager)
Make: 2005 Outback XT Limited
Time Out Of Use: Weeks +
Problem And Likely Cause: The car starts, the security light comes on, then dies. ECU code: P1578 (Meter Failure) and BIU code: B0403 E/G request NG.
Modifications: STI intercooler, STI turbo, ECM Reprograming.
Submitted For Warranty Work (Yes/No): No.
Reason Given For Denial: Mods to engine and ECU.
Your Story: First dealership diag and found bad BIU (Body Integrated Unit), replaced. No change. Further in diag chart called for replacing the Meter (Gauges), replaced and no change. Our dealership diag chart calls for replacing the ECM. Replaced and no change. Dealer called Subaru TechLine and they recomended replacing keys, did no change. Next step replacing Main Wiring Harness, replaced and no change. On a whim replaced the starter switch and immobilizer antenna and no change. 2 Senior Master techs and Subaru TechLine are stumped. Any help would be great to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Either this car is cursed or ... no its cursed. No fix at this point.
Update: Always check all the grounds on the engine, by chance found the rear lower engine grounds loose. Problem solved this time.

Modifications: vf39, sti tmic, 3port ebcs, 3"dp, phenolic spacers, meth/water kit
Submitted For Warranty Work (Yes/No): No
Reason Given For Denial:
Your Story: Bought the car in 2008 realised the directional wasnt working, thougt it was just a bulb out; didnt think much of it until i removed the headligt to change the bulb to realise it still didnt work. Then i had to remove the housing again and tested the plug for the bulb with a what-cha-ma-call-it/ voltmeter thing, to find out no juice was getting to the bulb.

Your Story: started my car and as I was driving away, i would hear an odd noise for 2-3 seconds before my ewg would open up. plugged in my AP and got the codes, i've had the crank and cam codes before while remote starting, but never the P1578. in my infinite wisdom i mistakenly hit reset ecu. the noise and code haven't come back in 300 miles.
