Where is the ignition control module on a 1998 subaru forester with a 2.5 motor and automatic transmission

Having trouble locating the ignition control module on a 1998 subaru forester. It gets a brain **** every 20 or so starts and you have to wait about 20 minutes and it fires right up. I am replacing the coil, and ICM just because it's soon going to be winter and I do not want my wife stranded. Any assistance appreciated.

SOURCE: 2000 subaru forester ignition coil wiring

Are there any other possible problems, or you are just not receiving spark at all now?

The coilpack could be dead and just need replaced. If you have a voltmeter or a test light, check the wiring on both sides of the coilpack harness to make sure it is receiving power.
I don't believe Subaru used ignitors past '99, but if they did, your should be located on the firewall behind the throttle body. Make sure it's plugged in and receiving power.

Coil packs do go bad from time to time. I had to replace mine in my
'98 Impreza a while back.

Goodluck!

SOURCE: 2003 subaru forester cranks but no fire / no start

If the timing belt is broken or has lost some teeth then you will get no fire. Some models have an inspection port that you can see the belt through. Have someone try to start engine while you watch timing belt. If belt is stationary or moves in jumps then this is your problem.

My 1998 Subaru Forester steering wheel locked while I was driving and the brakes went out also.


I agree with the other Expert, but the steering wheel lockup is puzzling. Do you mean it did not turn or was hard to turn?

Now if the steering wheel locked in its Parked position, then the Ignition switch had to allow it. It would be consistent with losing the electric feed to the motor and things the other Expert said. Your Ignition switch may have turned itself off. Sometimes too much weight on a keychain is enough.

If the car will start, it may be okay. But the inside of your Ignition may be coming apart or your Keychip is cutting out. You might want to change Ignition switches.

''Hold At'' Subaru forester problem


I don't think you have a problem at all. when you turn the key on, the hold at light appears, this lets you know the system is engaged and ready to go,and will not turn back on unless the system is engaged during slippery conditions. Try disengaging the button,then turn the ignition on, I'll bet the light doesn't appear! Thats because its not supposed to when the system is disengaged. Dale
