PROBLEMS WITH MY NEW STI 5

Hi, just bought a sti version 5. Great car with a few niggles.

* Speedo does'nt work, electronic type I think.
* ABS light goes out for about 2 secs on starting, then comes straight back on.
* Passenger rear window does'nt work.
* Electric sunroof does'nt work.

Would appreciate if anybody could help.

Thanks, Jake.

Re: PROBLEMS WITH MY NEW STI 5

Hi mate,

Speedo is mechanical on Imprezas and it is quite common for them to stop working on the classics. Check the cable hasn't come off somewhere behind the clocks which is the most likely cause.

If your ABS light is coming on and staying on then i imagine there is a problem with your ABS so would recommend a visit to the shop for that.

If it is just the one window not working then reckon it is either wiring problem or motor issue with that window. Would check the wiring first, failing that could be the motor. As above with the sunroof, though seems a bit odd you're having so many electrical issues. Perhaps the previous owner has just allowed these issues to build up.

Anyway, good luck with it mate.
