Question about 1989 Subaru Justy

3 Answers

89 justy wont start-no spark.

I had the cjutch replaced and now no spark. The mech. went all through the elecs. and couldn't find prob. I have a light flashing inside the ECU,(L.E.D.) three times quickly. The big prob is no spark at coil, do the flashes mean anything? I am a motorcycle mech. and have a bit of knowledge, but I hate changing part after part until prob is fixed. Is it ECU, or breakerless trigger, or............ HELP please!!!

    I don't believe this car has one, it uses the trigger in the distributor as that sensor. I think that may be the prob though.

The flashing usually refers to an error code. long and short flashes translate into a number, then you look it up.

long flash = 10's digit
short flash = 1's digit

long long long short = 31

email me if you want and i'll look up the code for you.

    I hate to say it but check for pinched or knocked off wire from when the clutch got replaced Is there 12V on the + side of the coil? Is there a blinking test light on the - side of the coil? if so and no out put the coil is bad and we can stop looking for a trigger problem.

    You do have 12v going into the distributor key on right?

    Can I call u? or you call me 253-691-6206

I assume you replaced the temperature sending unit when you installed the aftermarket gauge? You need to put the proper sending unit back in for the OEM gauge to work.

You can find a sending unit here (and a gauge if needed):

Mech or Elec overdrive

According to Haynes Auto Repair Manual, section on automatic transmissions, the 1994 Towncar has the AODE transmission
Baumann Electronic Controls website
has following:
The Automatic Overdrive (AOD) transmission was introduced in 1980 as Ford's first four-speed automatic overdrive transmission.
The AOD-E transmission is essentially a beefed-up electronically-controlled version of the AOD.
If this doesn't answer your question, you might troll around the website.

My right turning signal sometimes doesnt work. The light in the dash stays on, but doesnt flash. When this happens the front light stays on when the signal is applied, but the back one doent work. Ive...

  1. Turn 4 way (hazard) lights on check to see that all lights are flashing if rear is not flashing suspect bad ground since 4way usually goes through brake light.
  2. If everything flashes you may have a bad flasher relay find it replace it.
  3. If light still will not flash check light socket by removing bulb & looking for burnt melted contacts or plastic. You find any of these problems consider replacing socket.
  4. If you do not find any problems with socket use a cheap test prob connect alligator clip to metal ground near socket with bulb out turn on blinker carefully touch each contact inside socket when you find the right contact prob should light up & blink.
  5. If you cannot get prob to blink move prob ground to new location do step 4 again.
  6. If you still get no blink start probing wires coming into socket until prob lights working away from socket.
  7. Ground is on the side of the socket when you look in it.

2001 durango rear window defog light flashing

What code is it showing for the leak detection pump ? That pump along with all sensors on the vehicle can set more then one code , most can set half a dozen ! Circuit volt high , circuit voltage low , open , short to power , short to ground etc... You probably have a wiring problem , I'd say it's time to find a new mech. Plus you can not just swap PCM/ECM - engine computers , they need to be reconfigured an programmed . Or other problems will pop up . With the check engine light on codes or set !
