Your model and year has OBDII. I would not suggest shorting any wires. It will not flash codes. Most Auto parts stores will test it for free. Good luck and have a great day.

Flashing check engine light 1999 Subaru


Any time your check engine light is flashing this indicates an engine misfire that has the potential to damage your catalytic conveter. A diagnostic trouble code has been stored in the vehicles onboard computer that will confirm the engine misfire. Continued driving may ruin your very expensive catalytic converter located in your front exhaust pipe.
Good luck, I hope this answers your question.

Yes they will bolt in. Make sure you have the sensors matched. You might have to do some playing with the computer to make it all work properly. Good luck and have a great day.

Engine check light comes on


Have you tried disconnecting the battery for half an hour to reset the computer? If that doesn't work I think the Vacuum Pressure Sensor is in the black box with all the vacuum hoses going to it beside the air filter housing. Not sure tho, subaru will tell you where it is & how to test it if you ring them & ask for the workshop.
