#5764 of 8657 cd player, illumination
Jan 30, 2006 (11:40 am)
i've got two things i need help with in regards to my newly acquired 1998 subaru legacy outback.
i want get a cd player. i currently have the factory tape/am-fm-weatherband radio made by panasonic installed. there is a 13 prong connector on the back of it. will that unit support a cd changer. if so, how can i figure out what CD changers it will support? will it support the clarion 6-cd changer that was made for subaru's from 1998-2001? if i want to stay with the factory look do i need to buy the CD/tape/am-fm-weatherband radio which was an option for that year?
2. my dash lights on the right side (cruise control, hazard, climate controls) aren't illuminating. the lights on the left side seem to be ok. i checked both fuse boxes. there are no broken fuses. any idea's?

When I had 16K miles on my 2002 outback wagon, I began to smell coolant, but could not detect a leak. The coolant was vaporizing on the engine block. The casue was a blown head gasket, covered under the 60,000 drive taian warranty.,

I destroyed one of my Potenzas. Car has 23,000 miles.
I want to replace the two front with Yokohamas from TireRack.
Sears won't replace one or two tires on the OB unless they are all exactly same tire.
Does it matter as long as they are all within the same diameter/tread wear?
The Potenzas are lousy in the snow and I'm not getting them again.

For the sake of grip, I would replace all 4. I really cannot comment beyond that.

Who would have thought I would have to pay $500 for hitting a curb?

Read your owner manual
Since the old tires have a good amount of miles on 'em, the tread will be lower and the overall diameter of the tire will be less than an equivalent sized new tire. Sears probably doesn't shave tires, so they're correct in saying NO to you.
If you can find a place that'll shave the new tires to the same tread depth or overall tire diameter of the old tires, you *could* get the new tires. But, since you already dislike the Potenza's, just opt for new tires now and be safer.

Did you ever find the problem to your P0122 error code? I just started to experience the car jerking me around and the P0122 code appeared.

P0122 = Throttle position sensor circuit low input
If the ECM does not know how much the throttle plate is open, determining the correct amt of fuel, ignition timing, etc., gets very dicy.

Wow, a personalized invitation from our gracious host! Gee, I have FIB'ed carbon nanotubes. Bet in the right suspension, they would make a very controlled micro abrasive. (Note to self - submit patent app for new polishing compound formula.)
Maybe.... taking the family out for dinner tonight.
