Subaru Outback: Inhibitor Switch

A: INSPECTION

When the driving condition or starter motor operation is improper, first check the shift linkage for improper operation.

If the shift linkage is functioning properly, check the inhibitor switch.

1) Remove the air intake boot assembly. <Ref. to IN(H4SO)-8, REMOVAL, Air Intake Boot.>

2) Disconnect the inhibitor harness connector.

4) Check that there is continuity at equal points when the select lever is moved 1.5º in both directions from the "N" range.

If there is continuity in only one direction or in other points, adjust the inhibitor switch. <Ref. to CVT-97, ADJUSTMENT, Inhibitor Switch.>

  1. Continuity does not exist.
  2. Continuity exists.
  3. 1.5º

5) Repeat the above inspection in other gear ranges. If there is fault, adjust the inhibitor switch and select cable.

<Ref. to CVT-97, ADJUSTMENT, Inhibitor Switch.> <Ref. to CS-50, ADJUSTMENT, Select Cable.>

B: ADJUSTMENT

1) Shift the select lever to "N" range.

2) Loosen the two bolts holding the inhibitor switch.

3) Insert the ST vertically into the holes of the shifter arm and switch body.

4) Tighten the two bolts holding the inhibitor switch.

Tightening torque: 5 N*m (0.5 kgf-m, 3.7 ft-lb)

5) Repeat the inspection of the inhibitor switch. If the inhibitor switch is determined to be "faulty", replace it.

C: REMOVAL

1) Shift the select lever to "N" range.

2) Disconnect the ground cable from battery.

3) Lift up the vehicle.

4) Remove the center exhaust pipe. <Ref. to EX(H4SO)-8, REMOVAL, Center Exhaust Pipe.>
