Diagnosing Your Subaru's Check Engine Light
In this video I will show you how to diagnose the check engine light for your OBD1 (1996 and older) Subaru. In this video I am diagnosing my 1993 Subaru Legacy LS Special. Learned how to do this myself and figured I would share to the world how to do it. By diagnosing the check engine light yourself you could save the money it would take to have a shop or a dealer diagnose it, and you can also save money as opposed to buying and OBD scanner which could run a price of up to $100+. The website that I found most useful for trouble codes was www.troublecodes.net. The only few reasons why an OBDI Subaru will have a check engine light are for the following reasons: - The connector to the sensor is unplugged. - There is a grounding problem within the circuit. - There is inadequate power to the circuit. - The circuit is shorting out somewhere. - The sensor itself is shot so badly that it cannot communicate with the ECU. OBDI is different from the OBDII system because in the OBDI system, there are no inefficiency codes or monitors like there are in the OBDII systems. --UPDATE-- My Subaru has been destroyed. I was driving the other night in the snow and a moron in a 4WD Jeep was doing at least 45 in a 25 zone, and he started swerving all over the road and he ended up swerving his passenger side rear end right into the front of my car. After he hit my car, he was going so fast that he continued to slide an additional 40 feet away from my car. My car is totaled, and the stupid ass hole in the Jeep got away with his rear end smashed. The worst part is that I did nothing wrong and now I am out a car. RIP.

DIY: Reset Check Engine Light without OBDII reader
Learn how to reset your Check Engine Light (CEL) without using an OBD II 2 scanner / reader tool. Will work on just about any car. Also referred to as Service Engine Soon, and Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL). This is very general and will work on any vehicle. Not just on this Honda. If the light does turn back on, go to any auto parts store and ask them if they can read the code on the computer. This is free most of the time and will tell you where to look for the problem. WARNING: Do not attempt to fool the company that gets you your vehicle state inspection. After resetting your computer this way, you will lose logged data. This shows up on their computer and will automatically fail the inspection. The fix? Drive it around for a while, a day or two and you will have the data back. Be warned, if you haven't fixed the issue, the light will turn back on. 2nd WARNING: As pointed out by Sam Cotts, if the problem is not fixed, the light will turn right back on. These videos are for DIY-ers. They are not intended to have professional results. They are intended to have similar effects, at a much cheaper price, and without purchasing professional tools.
