Hi Mildred, I'm glad to help!
Mildred, if the DLC Connector was taken apart and you have power and ground to the connector. Then most likely some of the wires are in the wrong place. Here's how to fix it: CALL Subaru and see if they will print you a DLC Connector wiring schematic. Then carefully follow the schematic to see if any of the wires are out od place. If they are simply put them in the correct place. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Mildred.

I have a 2008 ford fusion and it failed inspection because they could not get any readings for the emission test. It is not communicating at all what can I do to fix this problem?

Check your fuses and replace any that are blown. Usually the cigarette lighter fuse also powers the DLC (data link connector) with this fuse blown the scan tools can not communicate with the OBD2 system.

The easiest way to disconnect it is to remove the fuse for security system. You can find the fuse box, under the steering wheel. Remove the plastic cover, and look on the back for the diagram to see which fuse to take out.

Disconnected battery to clear codes and when i hooked up and tried to drive away car would not accererate but only surges then dies all i did was disconect battery for 3 minuites is their a sim0pple fix

You cannot clear the codes by simply disconnecting the battery. Did you repair the problem that set the codes in the first place? What were the codes, and what did you do other than disconnect the battery?

I need help on replacing a radiator on my 2000 chevy cavalier

Disconnect negative battery cable. If you have Delco Loc or Theftlock audio system, turn off feature which reqiers disconnecting the battery. Make sure engine is cool and turn cap slowly to release pressure. Drain cooling system. Disable airbag system by disconnecting the electrical connector from the airbag system's forward discriminating sensor located on the hood latch support bracket. Remove the cooling fan and shroud assembly. Next loosen clamps for upper and lower hoses then Disconect from radiator. Disconect the coolant reservoir inlet and outlet hoses from radiator. You will need a couple drain pans and rags. If your car has an automatic transaxle, Disconect it from the left side tank of the radiator. Use a back-up wrench on each welded nut while loosening the cooler fitting. Be careful not to bend or brake any lines when loosening the fittings. If they are tight spry some WD-40 and wait about 10 mins. Plug the ends of the disconected lines to prevent leakage. Remove right and left head lamp assembiles. Remove hood latch support brakets from radiator crossmember. Remove condenser mounting bolts. Remove the radiator upper mounting bolts located at the upper left and right ends of radiator's side tanks. Now carefully remove radiator. To install just follow directions backwards. I hope this helped.

I don't know the answer to this question, but all I do is disconnect my battery everytime I have issue with my Jimmy and it seems to fix the problem. I don't know if this is going to help you or not but give it shot. disconnect your battery for 5 minutes and see what it will do.

The alarm form my car is ringing with no reason at is very anoiyng for everybody.would u know why? how can i fix this? i can/t even disconected coz i dont know where is it....i just disconect the...

Mine is the same, so I lock mine manually, using the rocker switch on the drivers door. Set all of the other switches to lock (use the power lock button) then open the drivers door to get out and before closing the door flick the rocker switch on the door to lock and shut the door. This makes sure the doors are locked but disables the alarm. You will notice that the red flashing light on the dash which lets you know that the alarm is engaged will not be flashing, the alarm is disengaged. Much easier than disconnecting the battery...
Read the manual to identify the power lock button from the manual door lock switch.
