CHECK ENGINE LIGHT APPEARED! HELP PLEASE!

Just been out for a drive in the old classic (94 M reg Sti V2)

It seemed to drop revs then pop then the CHECK ENGINE light appeared.

I just put clutch down and coasted home freewheeling as was just around the corner.

The speedo packed up yesterday if this is related.


Is it safe to drive??? I just drove it down the drive but scared stiff itll blow something.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Re: CHECK ENGINE LIGHT APPEARED! HELP PLEASE!

first thing to do would be to carry out an ecu reset and see if there are any fault codes stored in the memory. if there are, they will point to what the problem is. this link should help ECU Reset... How many different methods are there???

Hi thanks for that.

Just done the ecu reset

On returning home with all plugs connected still the CHECK ENGINE light flashed 3 x long and then 3 x short

Just unplugged the green and the black connectors and now light has gone off.

Should his now be safe to drive???

Thanks again

3 long and 3 short is code 33. just looked it up and thats a vehicle speed sensor fault. best bet would be to give stockcar (alyn at AS Performance) a shout or get in touch with a subaru specialist to get the best advice mate
