Try another scanner before you get too involved. I have seen scanners go bad when it was not the connection. Good luck and have a great day.

Go to any mechanic with a code reader. They will plug it in and find the code that will have been set in the cars computer. This code can be looked up by the mechanic to find out wat the problem is. You need to do it NOW!

Engine not hot temperture red lines ac and heat stop until the hand come back down


Could be a faulty temp sensor. You should have the computer scanned for trouble codes and check the sensor operation.
Also make sure the radiator is full of coolant.

2 flooding cyliders in subaru forester 2000 model engine is it computer related issues? problem happened under idle in extreme cold conditions whilst trying to warm engine


Hello...i'm here to help you, but need a bit more information please. Is the check engine light on in your Subaru? If so, do you know what the DTC codes are that caused it to come on? When you say "2 flooding cylinders" does that mean those 2 cylinders are not firing and the spark plugs are wet with gasoline? What 2 cylinders are they? I don't think the problem is ECM related. Reply back and i can give you some suggestions on where and what to troubleshoot.

Where is the knock sensor located on a 2001 subaru forester engine 4 cyl. Replaced wires and plugs ...runs great but sensor does not reset and comes right back on after code is erased. are they a one shot...


When facing the engine it is in the rear right hand side.

The knock sensor is a piezo electric crystal, when they go bad the must be replaced.
