Default My new r-sti is killing me!!

Hey all. I'm new to Subaru but have an extensive background in vw's as I have been building/racing them for years. I have searched and researched these CEL's for a few days now but can seem to figure this out.

I have a 99rs with v2 sti engine..its throwing 3 CEL's. See below.
#32: 02 sensor (I'm only running one up front in the header) this one seema easy. Will a run of the mill 1994-95 impreza square 3 prong 02 sensor work?

#42: Idle switch (what the heck is that?)is this just my tps? Are they not integrated?

#43: Throttle switch (no clue) I don't even think my car has that switch. Assuming its the switch at the pedal. I have also heard this is a dummy code

Where would I find the throttle switch and idle switch.
Any help is great!

What kind of code reader are you using? I was expecting 4 digit codes. Is this a pre OBDII ECU?

I am using the two green connectors under the dash. Once connected they will flash cel codes. Pre obd2 I would assume since is a pre 95

Yes a normal usdm 93-95 or so impreza oxygen sensor fits. You might have to move the harness or extend the wires a bit depending on how your harness was done.

Idle and throttle switch are the TPS. It should be the same as the early 91-94 turbo legacy.

Use a 91-94 NON-turbo legacy as the wiring harness is long enough. Still the same o2 sensor. The turbo legacy sensor's wiring harness is too short.

On the JDM WRX, there is a little switch on the throttle pedal. That is what code 43 is referring to. The code doesn't affect how it runs and only shows up as a code in memory, not as an immediate code (i.e. will not set the CEL unless you read the stored codes). No one seems to know what the switch is for. It is ok to ignore it.

Idle switch is inside the TPS. Below are the trouble shooting steps. Most likely your TPS is just out of adjustment. Try step #3 first.

beauty thanks!

The TPS is shot- figured this out a few min ago.

Ordered a 1994 impreza 02 sensor and a 1994 legacy tps.

Thanks all!
