    OK. That probably discounts the cause of the cruise not engaging being a failed clock spring but not to rule it out. Is yours a manual or auto? There’s a switch on the clutch pedal (if manual) which disengages cruise if the clutch is depressed, if that switch is faulty Ithink it might prevent cruise from working. Alternatively, linkage with speed sensors on wheels, through the BIU might inhibit cruise. Others probably need to chime in here as I’m running out of ideas. Lastly, the actual switch on the end of the stalk might be u/s.

    Are you switching it on using the button at the end of the stalk?

    Impreza Radiator Issues.!

    OK. When the overflow doesn't get drawn back to the radiator during cool-down it could be due to a faulty rad cap. Also, if the rad cap spring is weak or the rad cap is wrong pressure, it could allow too much coolant into the overflow in the first place. What pressure is the rad cap? May be stamped on the top, generally 1.1 bar or higher. Other thought - when the car overheats, do you get heat in the car from the heater/aircon etc or is it cold?

    Alarm and immobiliser

    I got mine from my dealer. Just had to take in ID and the V5 to prove ownership.

    Alarm and immobiliser

    Have you asked a dealer to source the 4 digit code for you?

    Alarm won’t stop sounding. Still drives though!

    When it sounds, are there any door open icons on the dashboard (small display above the speedo/tach)? May be faulty bonnet plunge switch. May be failing alarm battery (9v rechargeable, built into the siren, located under the cowl, hear the nearside wiper mounting). Do you know the 4 digit PIN for the alarm?

    Brake Pipe recall

    I'd kick up a stink with Subaru. if a brakeline under recall leaks a month after recall inspection, the inspection was feeble - should have picked up imminent failure.

    GX 201 RE Head unit

    Have you tried eject when on slot 1 - the slot which shows nothing but maybe a cd in upside down or as Jay says, a dvd?

    Normal. If the key isn't inserted into the ignition and turned at least to the ignition position(before the start position) the immobiliser kicks in again. If that happens, you have to disable the immob by button push.

    MOT fail on emissions

    Maybe nedes a tune up/plugs etc? Did you give the car a hard run just before the MOT? Hot cats work better I think.

    Subaru Forester SG06 2006 XT Alarming!

    Is there a alarm keypad inside the cab fusebox and do you have the code if so?

    Headlight Woes

    First things first. Ensure the bulbs are properly seated in the housings. Then, get them aimed properly. Then, if the problem remains, change dip beam bulbs to Osram nightbreaker or similar,
