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.

Whatswill a 2001 legacy subaru tranaxel fit a 1999 subaru forester atf


I'm not exactly sure what you're asking...however, if you want to put axles from a 2001 Legacy on to a 1999 forester, they'd both need to have the same motor (probably a 2.5L) and the same trans-axle/transmission. The forester MIGHT have a 2.2L motor which would cause me to think NOT. Of course if one car has an automatic and the other a manual transmission, then I would not recommend using one on the other. Hard to tell without being able to see them both. Sorry I couldn't be more definitive in my answer.

04 CTS Ignition Key Stuck, but I can remove the key and restart after a battery disconnect


The automatic transmission shift lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the engine is running. The driver must press the brake pedal before moving the shift lever out of the PARK position. The system consists of the following components.
• The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid
• The brake switch
• The rear integration module (RIM)
• The transmission control module (TCM) or powertrain control module (PCM)
With the ignition ON, battery positive voltage is supplied to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid from the ignition 3 relay. The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid is controlled by the rear integration module. When the rear integration module (RIM) receives a class 2 serial data message from the transmission control module (TCM) or powertrain control module (PCM) indicating that the shift lever is in the PARK position the rear integration module (RIM) grounds the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid control circuit. This causes the solenoid to energize mechanically locking the shift lever in the PARK position. When the driver presses the brake pedal the rear integration module receives the brake applied signal and turns off the ground to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid control circuit. This allows the shift lever to be moved out of the PARK position.

Where or if there is a dipstick for transmission fluid check? The car is not changing gears properly,it's an automatic.


The dipstick for the tranny is located near the firewall. It looks like an oil dipstick, but the tube is a bit larger.
