SOURCE: engine timing for a 1998 subaru forester with a 2.5

Since ignition timing is taken care of by the ECU, I guess you are asking about cam timing.
There are several marks to be aligned and if you get them wrong, you may trash your engine so I am only going to suggest you buy a Haynes service manual that has numerous good pix that show you exactly how to avoid killing your engine. And, unless you have a good-size vice well-mounted, compressing the belt tensioner again is going to give you fits.
The Haynes number you need is 89100 but it is listed only as a manual for the Legacy which uses the same engine but there may be less info that is usable on your '98 forester for which Haynes does not make a specific manual.
The later book that I have, 89101, covers all models from 2000 to 2006.

SOURCE: How do you reset the computer on a 1998 subaru

I am thinking you mean the alarm system. If so, Just locate the box under dash by where your left knee sits. It is about 4" x4" x 1". It has a wire lead that has a small button on it. Just push and hold the button for about 15 secounds and it will reset itself. That should stop the marker lights from flashing. Good luck and hope this helps. Have a great day.

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!

Parking lights stay on


A very common problem with a very simple solution.

I'll just BET the switch on the top of the steering column is on. It's easy to bump this when resetting the trip meter.

This switch turns on a set of very low wattage bulbs so you can safely park in dark but high traffic areas.

Subaru Forester, 2003. clock light and dome light not working (clock works, just no light at night). all other dash lights appear to function. i replaced fuse marked 12 in engine fuse panel, described...


The clock works, correct? It is just not illuminating when your headlights are turned on? If this is the case then it is most likely that you have 2 burned out bulbs. The forester clock bulb is Sylvania bulb part #2723

Hope that helps! I have a bunch of clock related info on my website www.autoclockrepair.com. Let me know if I can be of assistance.

Subaru forester (2006) radio stopped working - only light static. CD player works fine.


Best guess is the antenna has a broken wire/lead, or somehow got unplugged from the radio. You will have to remove the radio to check antenna wire with Volt/ohm meter.

2004 subaru forester battery keeps going dead, the only thing I see on is the alarm light


You have a voltage draw. Usually something like a trunk light, interior light, or glove box light.
If you can use a meter or a test light...disconnect your battery ground, and put the light or meter between the cable end and the battery. A normal draw will be a very slight light of the bulb, or a small milli-amp reading. A big draw will give a bright light or higher amp readings, so now you remove fuses, one at a time to break it down to what may be causing the draw.
