Haven't been to the dealer yet, but this is the second CEL I've gotten. First was 1443. Dealer cleaned solenoid valve connection and applied dielectric grease to terminals.

This time I may ask them to reprogram the ECU.

I happened to glance at the instrument panel at the moment the CEL lit up. I was simply cruising on the interstate at the time.

I finally become a member of this sad family, this is my first!! I'm so proud:

Let's see:
5 speed Sport wagon, Silver (if it matters)
Mileage on: 3066
Mileage off: currently at 3076 and counting.
I've restarted the car twice.

It's 2 o'clock in the morning, so the dealer is not open. I'll shoot for tomorrow. BTW, the dealer is Subaru of Schaumburg.

BTW, it just might be the vent solnoid problem. I had to muck with the charcoal canister when I installed my trailer hitch. I really hope it's not P0303, misfire in no.3 cylinder. That would suck!!

I'll keep you guys updated.

Another thing:
Car was under moderate load, I was accelerating from a light, going around a gentle curb onto Lake Shore Drive from Sheridan (for those of you in Chicago). I think I was in second gear, doing about 40 mph, shifting to third gear (maybe). I'll keep you guys updated.

Car has no engine mods (yet). Although, I do have the 20 sedan rear bar, Rev-lab Al endlinks, UK 17" wheels, Bridgstone RE011 tires, and the aforemantioned trailer hitch. I don't see how any of these should cause a CEL.

Mike

Light on: 10/02/01-3012 miles

Taking to Jack Miller Subaru of Olathe on Thursday 10/4, will report what they tell me.

Car was almost on empty (low fuel light came on several minutes after CEL). Was moderately accelerating away from an intersection.

Have always thought that I was not getting the performance I expected, but didn't have anything to compare to, and thought it was pretty subjective. My gas mileage is something I have wondered about though, I drive VERY moderately, virtually no hard acceleration, maybe once or twice a tank, and I am getting 16 MPG. Maybe this is all related.

10/4/01 Aha! The dreaded 1443! Taking it back in Monday at which time they are going to whisk my ECU back to Subaru for a quick reprogramming. They did say it could be affecting my performance and MPG.

When he came out and told me they were going to send my computer back to Subaru, I said "Oh, code P1443, huh?". He looked very surprised and said, "Uh, yes."

11/13/01 Took the car in the next Monday and got it back on Thursday. Subaru paid for the rental car. A month later haven't had a bit of trouble and the performance is markedly improved. Unfortunately the improved performance has kept my gas mileage from improving because I can't keep my foot out of it.

Default CEL

(See earlier post).

As expected, CEL was due to code #1443. The dealership claims that there has been no technical bulletin to date regarding this problem.

I am confused as to why some users have been saying that they were able to get their ECU's replaced or reprogrammed.

By the time I got into the dealership the CEL had reset but they were still able to read the code. No work was done.

Default CEL, twice!!

Ok, got it too, twice! The first time it was reset.

* manual
* early September / 10500 km (6500 miles) (Second occurence)
* P1443, what else...
* Gatineau , Subaru, Quebec, Canada
* Sent the ECU to be reprogrammed in Toronto. Lost the car for 5 days. Did not reappear since (I'm at 14000 km now). The first occurence the code was reset. It took 4 weeks to get ready to do the work, I had to plan for it.

Hope that fixes it for good...

*Gas level 2/3 tank
*No apparent loss of performance though I did try to keep it below 3500 RPM on the way home.

Spent the day driving around Mt. Rainier National Park. Didnt drive hard at all. Had dinner at the National Park lodge, when I came out and started her up CEL.

No mods, always premium gas, gas cap put on with 3+ clicks every time. Gas level never below 1/4 tank

will edit tomorrow after I take it to dealer...

Dont have the codes with me--will enter them later-however:

Basically the computer was saying that cylinders 1 & 3 were misfiring when they werent.

They have sent the chip to New Jersey to have it reprogrammed-I am driving a crappy legacy (though I am not complaining - loaner cars are awesome) til at least monday.

* manual
* CE light came on at 125 miles
* pulled a p0440 code (even though i had clicked the gas cap eight times)

* 50 miles after having it looked at by the dealership, got another CE light (this time i had clicked the gas cap twelve times and i never top off)
* light still on, will edit once i bring it to the dealer

edit:
* after having 3 CELs, brought it into dealership, dealership replaced gas cap, thinking it might have been faulty (leaky)
* after a 4th CEL, left car at dealership; dealership discovered something was disconnected/loose (don't have the sheet with me right now)
* after two tankfuls of gas, so far, so good -- finally

Mine went on (12,000 miles) on Friday, after getting on to the highway, went off by morning. Saturday it rained and when going into a corner the tail end steeped out a little and the check engine light is back on. Going to the dealer will put up the code. Still love the car though. Light back off. Oh well they are still going to look at it.

* wouldn't you know it, the stupid CEL goes off when the delear looks at it, but they pulled the above code. told me to bring it back in if this happens again. they are aware of the reprograming issue.

I have had the car since March 29th, and besides the clutch studder, this is the first real problem.
