Question about 1996 Subaru Legacy
The starter bench tests to be ok. When I turn the key, I can hear the starter solenoid click, then silence. The parts store suggests a relay. I cannot find a starter relay. Earlier, when I could not afford the repairs, a shop said it was the starter. Now that I can afford the starter (thanks Dad) the parts store says the starter is fine? Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
I have run into this problem. The installation location of the starter is very critical to have a good ground. On the EJ25 motors the way the starter mounts with one bolt to the trans and the other through the trans to the block makes it difficult to get a really good ground. I would make sure you have a nice clean secure ground. Hope this solves your problem, nothing worse than having a Subie and not being able to use it. Good luck.
