  1. Model Year 2018 and Newer Possible 18+ DRL Disable? Need Input

    Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    I'm pretty sure it doesn't...just turns off the DRL's and lights the dash warning light. Another unusual idea from the engineers at Subaru.
  2. Model Year 2018 and Newer Possible 18+ DRL Disable? Need Input

    Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    I totally agree with you. Read my post again...that's what I was trying to say. It will "kick the cruise off". Sorry for the confusing explanation!
  3. Model Year 2018 and Newer Possible 18+ DRL Disable? Need Input

    Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    I know someone who installed a switch to override the parking brake switch and when the car thinks the parking brake is on, it disables the cruise control and who knows what else. They never worried about eliminating the warning light on the dash, but now they're able to evade the police when...
  4. Model Year 2018 and Newer 2019 Crosstrek - Growing Disillusioned & Potential Recall?

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    It is only an issue with the steering column. You are the only one thinking that there is more to it...Why??? Subaru probably closed the plant down that long so they could thoroughly investigate and pinpoint the problem to make the proper redesign. It doesn't mean that there were numerous...
  5. Model Year 2018 and Newer rear seat back protectors + velcro

    Appearance and Body
    No need to cut off the cords. With a little time and effort you can push the ends of the cord back through the holes in the rubber mat.
  6. Applies to All Model Years How to fully charge the battery?

    Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    FWIW: The OEM battery in my 05 Subaru lasted me 9 yrs+. The only reason I replaced it was because I realized it was that old. It was still working fine with only 41,000 miles on it, but I didn't want to risk being stranded some cold snowy night.
  7. Model Year 2012 to 2017 what is minimum brake rotor thickness??

    Subaru Crosstrek Service Manual - Inspection - Front disc rotor Subaru Crosstrek Service Manual - Inspection - Rear disc rotor Looks like you're still good.
  8. Model Year 2012 to 2017 Water damaged 2014 Subaru Crosstrek

    DIY and 3rd party Maintenance, How To's & Tools
    Since no one has answered your initial question yet, I will at least acknowledge it. I really don't know for certain that it is the ECU, but I've seen more than one vehicle with the ECU in that general location. My best bit of advice for you is to invest in a good repair manual(from Subaru)...
  9. Model Year 2012 to 2017 '17 Clunking/Clicking from Driver's Rear Suspension

    Suspension and Brakes
    That's what warranties are for. I know it's a PITA to go to the dealer but if it is a loose bolt and further damage is caused while that bolt was loose...it'll be on record for possible future issues. Weren't wheel bearings an issue in some models?

    If you read all posts in this thread, you will understand my post.
  11. Model Year 2012 to 2017 Why does it look like I have batting or insulation in my Airbox

    Engine and Drivetrain
    It's possible they did change the filters, but with mice in there it wouldn't take long to look like that. {You didn't tell us how long ago they were changed}. You definitely have mice!!

    Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    There's no such thing as overkill, if that's what you want or need!
  13. Model Year 2018 and Newer Trunk Cargo Lighting Upgrade

    Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    Great idea soldering to the LED, I don't like cutting into wiring harnesses if not necessary. I'll probably use your idea here, but I think I'm going to place the second fixture just inside the hatch on the ceiling. There are three "button-type" fasteners at that location and I'll run the wiring...

    Are you seriously running 75w 90 gear lube in your engine?
  15. Model Year 2018 and Newer Downloadable shop manuals from "factory-manuals.com"

    Dealer Service Problems, Maintenance, Warranty, TS
    Did anyone ever download ANY manuals from this website? https://www.factory-manuals.com/ There seems to be a lot of translation errors on their web pages, so I was wondering if they are reputable. They finally have the manual for the 2019 Crosstrek listed. It's the first and only place I...
  16. Model Year 2018 and Newer Qat's Limited

    Subaru XV Member's Journal
    Agreed...why would you mount a cargo light below the cargo level. Once you load up the cargo area...the light is useless! They should have mounted it overhead, but I guess they saved some weight and maybe 12 cents on the 2 or 3 feet of wiring harness they would have used...not to mention the...

    It's a Crosstrek...in a class of its own. I'm glad to be driving one!
  18. Model Year 2018 and Newer first time for oil change on new crosstrek

    Engine and Drivetrain
    When i wrote that post about Slick50 I didn't even know that is was on the market anymore. That was a product that was heavily advertised 30 or 40 years ago. It's probably one of the first half hour infomercial's that I remember seeing on TV. Back then I remember only one formula of Slick50...

    Wheels and Tires
    This will, at least, help answer your question. You will need to know the stock tire size that they had on the '15. https://tiresize.com/
  20. Model Year 2018 and Newer Installing backup lights in 2019

    Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    I would call them and explain your problem. They have a phone number on their web page. If they say it's the correct bulb and you can't install it, there must be some trick to it. They owe you a detailed explanation of how to install them. After all they do warrant all of their...
