Question about 2005 Subaru Outback

2 Answers

Siren keeps going off

The siren keeps firing on my 55 plate subaru outback at random times, with the key in the ignition or without. With the engine on or not. My only thought is that water has got in through a dodge seal when the windscreen was replaced and is messing with the siren. All i can do is unplug the battery as I cannot find the siren to disconnect. I would like to know where abouts the siren is so I can disconnect it before getting the problem permanently fixed

It should look like an out door PA speaker (horn shaped) with 2 wires plugged into it. Listen under the hood to home in on its location.

SOURCE: overheating

The 97-99 2.5L DOHC Subaru engines were notorious for this problem, blown head gasket is very likely the cause. It is possible to test for the presence of exhaust gas in the coolant to verify. The reason the car seems to be overheating then cools down quickly when shut off is that the hot exhaust gas displaces the coolant at the top of the engine where the sensor is. If it happens consistently you will need to deal with it, I have worked on an engine that was run many miles under this condition and it damaged the block beyond repair. If you are a decent shade-tree mechanic, it is possible to do the work with the engine still in the car, you will have to raise it up an inch or two to get sufficient access. I have personally done 3 engines with this problem, a 98 and 2 99's.

SOURCE: Fuel Filter for a 2005 Subaru Outback

In 2005 Subaru moved the fuel filters to the fuel tank for both 4-cyl and 6-cyl cars. What is confusing is the statement in the owner's manual about replacement intervals; the statement actually only applies to 4-cyl cars. Even though the filter is mounted in the tank, this is still a replaceable element on 4-cyl, but not on 6-cyl. The 6-cyl filter element is part of the entire fuel pump assembly (a $300 assembly) and is not sold separately. Therefore the 6-cyl filter is intended to be a "lifetime" part, which really means it gets replaced when the fuel pump fails and the entire pump assembly is replaced.

SOURCE: how do u put timing belt for 2001 subaru outback

This is not your average timing belt replacement due to being a double overhead cam that is also an interferance fit.First remove cooling fans.2-Loosen drive belts and remove.3-Remove crank pully.4-Remove timing covers.You will see 4 cam sprockets.Theses sprockets contain single and double referance marks.You will be using the double referance marks.Rotate engine until the double referance marks are facing each other.This is to be done the same way that the American autos timing Chain systems are done but you will have 2 small double lines to line up not dots.The next step is the most important step and is of utmost imortance.THE CAMSHAFT HAVE TO BE LOCKED IN PLACE--FAILURE TO DO SO CAN RESULT IN BENT VALVES.The cam sprocket holders can be bought or rented.You can make your own as well by making 2 wedges with bolt through the middle.Slip in between sprockets and tighten enough to hold sprockets.Do not use excessive torque while tightening wedges sprockets are not made of steel but rather a composite material.Next you will have to remove the tenioner.The tensioner has to be retracted and pin istalled to hold in retracted position.The tension device has to be retracted with care or will be damaged.You can not exceed 50 pounds pressure on the plunger.The simplest method is to reract while still in vehicle, it takes 15 minutes to properly retract the plunger.By pulling up on the tensioner by hand with about 18 pounds of force --50 will be exerted at the plunger.When fully retracted insert pin to hold in reracted position.Next check to make sure that cam wedges are holding and no sprocket are trying to move,when satisfied remove one of the rollers at the bottom on the side where you left hand would be standing in front.Pull off belt.Replacement belt will have referance marksone line will go to crank sprocket face up others will line up with other sprocket marks.Reinstall roller followed by tensioner then pull pin you have holding tenioner retracted.Remove wedges.Reinstall covers fans belts.Do not be intimitaded by this replacement.Everything is very easy to get to.Be sure cams are locked and that damage is not done to tensioner and it is straight forward.

SOURCE: 2001 SUBARU OUTBACK, MARKER LIGHTS STAY ON WITH

The first thing I would check is on top of the steering column is a flip switch. Please flip switch. That is put there so you may have the marker lights on in case of emergency. Hope this helps and have a great day.

2000 subaru outback timing belt is changed, cranck and cam sensors changed but car stall crank and engine keep shutting off while driving


If this vehicle has a stand alone ignition module, that is more than likely the culprit. Change the igntion module and the problem should go away.

Alarm seems to work; been checked at Toyota but they say siren is broken and say it's a common fault. But everything else seems to work - you can hear the relay clicking; lights flash.


What is actually the problem, "Actually seems to work", what doesn't work.
If Toyota are on about the 9volt battery back up siren then the main siren may be working fine, but that might not be. Most cars especially Vauxhalls have a 9volt battery back up siren, so if someone tries stealing you motor and they disconnect the battery the 9volt battery will keep the siren going off.

Can't make car alarm go off. had to disconnect battery


Chevy car alarms turn off with ignition and reading the transponder from the key or by turning the key in the driver door to the unlock position. If this does not turn off the alarm it maybe an aftermarket alarm. Is it a horn making noise? or is it a siren making noise? Horn usually is fatcory alarm and siren is usually aftermarket alarm. If it is aftermarket alarm then you just have to find the alrm module and unplug it.

How to turn off the alarm,, Changed the battery now the alarm will not go off on my 2001 XG300.


Do you still have your Key Fob? The siren is impossible to turn off without the Key Fob.
Can you start the car? If working properly, the siren will be accompanied by all the marker lights flashing and the car's ignition being disabled.
If you can still start your car, you may have to disable your siren. NOT A GOOD IDEA!
When the battery was installed, did the fuse on the positive side get damaged? Did any wires get pinched or otherwise shorted against the positive terminal or leads? Check all over that area to make sure all is well.
If you absolutely have to, you can pull the siren relay IF it doesn't disable your ignition too. AGAIN! I DON'T BELIEVE THIS IS A GOOD IDEA, but needs must as the devil drives.
If you disconnect it, get it into the shop as soon as you can. You don't want to be without your anti-theft system for long.
I wish you the best!
