Have you tested fuel pressure? If you have no pressure the next step would be to test all relays and fuses. Next jump the fuel pump and see if the pump kicks on. If not, bad fuel pump, if it does fire, then the security system might be disabling the pump. Make sure all fuse and relays are good b

as long as security theft system is on, car wont start.

don't you have the remote key to disable the theft system?

you can bypass security but you have to have wiring experience and splicing before you can proceed.

SOURCE: Starter or solenoid issue on '98 Subaru Outback Legacy

The starter is separate from the soleniod; It could be a part called the bendix on the starter itself. If you can remove it, take it to a auto parts store- they will check it for free.

SOURCE: 98 dode ram wont crank no spark

May have no spark due to a bad crank sensor, which is responsible for spark when it gets a pulse through the cars' computer.

2008 Chevy Avalanche. Cranks, but why won't it start?


There is no magic fix button provided as standard equipment on your vehicle. You will need to perform standard diagnostic procedures to ascertain the source of the failure to start.
Begin by doing a readout of all stored codes from the ECU. This will give you a starting point from which to proceed in diagnosis. Check all systems, including FUEL, IGNITION, and SECURITY.

  • 1 Turn the ignition key counter clockwise in the driver's side door to unlock the caricon1.png. This deactivates the alarm long enough for you to gain access to the vehicle. Then, place the key in the ignition and turn the key until it clicks once. This starts the car's battery, but doesn't ignite the engine. The LED light on the dashboard should stop blinking, indicating the alarm is temporarily disabled.
  • 2 Locateicon1.png the box for the alarm under the dashboard on the driver's side of the car. Then, look for the override button on the box. Typically, the small button is either red or black. With the ignition key in the "on" position, press the override button and hold it in until the alarm chirps once. This disables the alarm until you manually reactivate it.
  • 3 To reactivate the alarm, turn the key to the "on" position and press the override button once. The alarm chirps twice, indicating the alarm is active.

  • Hope this helps!

    I have the same car - same problem. Too hot or too cold and then just another once and while for good measure :(
    I've had the battery checked and is good. Is it likely to be the starter?

    Subaru Outback Legacy Flashing
    Q. I have a 1996 Subaru Outback Legacy AWD manual transmission. the hazards flash when I turn the car off. I tried to reset the system by pushing the little black button under the drivers' side dash but it won't reset the system. I had problems with the brakes so I did not drive it for about two months and when I tried to start the car the battery was dead.
    mechanic.jpg Now the brakes are fixed but the hazards won't quit flashing and the guy who repaired the car said I needed to reset the system by pushing the little black button. And I don't know if I should have it looked at, or change the battery, or if it is something very simple I can fix by my self.
    Thank you very much,
    Patrick
    A. Patrick, you are the third person in the last two days that has come to me with this same exact problem under the same conditions. As of now I don't have any concrete information on this, but I believe the problem to be in the alarm system.
    I believe the battery being disconnected or dying does something to the Anti-theft and Alarm System module and having a Subaru dealer reset the system will correct it.
    If you do this and it works, please, let me know and I will pass the information on to the others.

    Dear Mr. Ciulla,
    I read your Q&A titled "Subaru Outback Legacy Flashing". I recently had the same problem on my 1996 2.5 liter Subaru Legacy Outback and your response is correct but I can give you a little more detail on what worked for me to stop the light flashing (which occurs sometimes if the battery had been dead):
    There is a black reset button under the I/P near the anti-theft module.
    1. Turn ignition on
    2. Hold button 20+ seconds (door locks will lock/unlock 3 times)
    3. Turn ignition off
    This also resets the key FOB so as step 2.5 you should also press the "lock" button on the key FOB before releasing the black reset button (door locks will lock/unlock one more time--do this with each key FOB you own). That's all!
    The questioner in your Q&A said he tried the reset button; I suspect he either didn't turn the ignition on/off or didn't hold it in for over 20 seconds.
    PS... pulling the door lock fuse will stop it temporarily if you can't get the above to work and have to take it to the dealer
    Regards,
    John
