SOURCE: Electrical Problem with 1999 Subaru Legacy

hi there, your alternator is not putting out enough, subbies should put out about 14.4v and just after starting should put out 40-60amps. charge the batt that is in it now with a small (3.5-6amp) charger overnight then start the car and LOAD TEST the batt and alternator at a battery shop. ask them to put a carbon pile load tester on your system. im pretty sure they're gonna tell you its the alternator. many thanks, hope this helps!

SOURCE: automatic shift knob stuck in

There are two switches that have to be activated before the park lock is released. The first is on the brake pedal, the second is the thumb button on the shifter. Most often the brake pedal switch is the problem, it can be pushed back and forth in its mount, sometimes it gets pushed to far and no longer switches when the pedal is depressed. You can also use the emergency release and shift out of park anytime. There is a plastic "ring" around the base of the shifter, in most cars it is black, in cars with wood grain trim pieces it is wood grain. The best way to get it out is to unscrew the center console and push it up from the back, you can pry it up buy you may break the tabs that hold it in. When this piece is out, look down at the front of the shifter base, there is a hole a pen will fit down into. If you push a pen, pencil, or any small round straight object down into that hole, it will mechanically release the shifter lock and allow you to get out of park. My daughter drove her 96 Legacy that way for months until I got around to fixing the brake switch.

My 1999 Subaru Legacy Outback seat will not move forward, only back up or down. It is electric. What can i do to fix it?


this can be a little complex to repair. You will need to remove the seat cover to access the electronic controls. I suspect that the switch unit might have a bad connection or corrosion on the contacts. If not then it might be a faulty motor or the grease has dried out and its jammed.

The automatic driver's seat will not go forward or backward. The other functions work - seat back, up & down, etc. Could it be just a loose wire for the back & forth function?


the cause of your problem could be the switch, or the electric motor that moves the seat, or a wire, I would go to a salvage yard, and get a used switch (usually 5 to 19 dollars) and see if that fixes your problem!!

The electric front seats both stopped moving


Check the fuse box for a blown fuse, both seats may operate on one fuse depending on the model of vehicle and the fuse may be located either under the dash on the drivers side or in the engine compartment on the drivers side.

2001 Outback LTD (sedan) power driver's seat - won't go backwards with power lever - will go forward (I'm choking) and up/down/tilt, but can't move seat back.


i would advise checking all wiring harnesses under seat make shur there all plugged in if they are you got 1 of 2 problems first the switch could have worn out replacing that switch will fix that. two you need a new motor. i would start with the switch as it is easiest faster and the most common problem with all power seats!! good luck hope this helps

Power driver seat will not adjust forward or back.


My intuition tells me that the 6 way power seat track forward / reverse motor is bad. Sometimes you can replace just the one motor but most often a whole new power seat track is the only way to repair. It is not too bad to replace but the seat will have to be removed from the car and placed upside down to access the track assy. There are 2 bolts in the front of the seat and 2 bolts in the back of the seat that hold it down to the floorboard. Once it is loose you can rock the seat backwards to access and unplug the electrical connectors.
