Why not read the 12-page pdf installation manual from Subaru at
2008 Remote Engine Start System (Legacy 08MY+) (H001SAG100) (1441.90 kb)
Wish I had to install one myself.
First you will need to know what the starter looks like, you can look it up online, and it will help you identify it better than my description would. Place the car in neutral and rock it back and forth to make sure the abendix is not engaged to the flywheel. Now, engage your parking brake. Jack up the vehicle and place it on jack stands to avoid a hydrolics problem (and also a death problem) in case your jack gives way. Disconnect the negative battery cable. If you have the four cylinder k24de block motor, you should also disconnect the positive terminal. Next get under the car, I believe I remember that one being on the driver's side, and disconnect the positive and negative wires from the solenoid. Look closely and identify all the bolts that mount the starter to the frame and motor. Then you can unbolt it and you will have to maneuver the starter around until it comes out of the frame supports. Remember what position it was when it finally comes out, because it will make it easier to put your new one in in the same direction and maneuver it in the opposite manner to line up your bolt holes.bolt in your starter and reconnect the wires. You should then reconnect your battery, and start the car. Don't lower the car yet, you may not have solved your problem it has been misdiagnosed. Hope this has been helpful. Jody
you will access it from the driver side, towards the middle rear . you will need to remove the air intake plastic cover to get to it. it's easy access once you remove the intake cover and hoses. the starter only has two screws, but be sure to disconnect your battery and power cable to the starter. I'm no mechanic and I've replaced it twice on the same year model and it appears i will be replacing it for a third time.
Disconnect your battery ground. Take off the plastic covers, then remove the steering wheel,follow the wiring harness from the switch to the connector under the dash and unplug it. Remove the screw holding it in and pull the switch out. Make sure to align the slot in the switch with the tab on the lock cylinder.
Sadly, there is no method that can be used to bypass immobilizer on Mercedes 190e 2.6. The key needs to transmit the correct information to the DAS module before the engine starts.
'Where is ignition coil 2 in a 1998 Nissan maxima'?
the solenoid itself is probably bad, if not that probably the ignition switch I agree 100%, check the solenoid first then the switch.
The starter on the 2002 Saturn vue is located on the front underside of the engine, follow the positive(red) cable from the battery and it should connect to the solenoid which is part of the starter.
hey.. the only way to check a coil of any kind is with an ohm meter,,,if it's bad it will show nothing or infinity... if it is good it should have at least 8 dependant upon the resistance but could be higher... i can't remember if too high means corosion or not but i know you can get the numbers from the manufacturer

Yes it does! It's on top of the tansaxle, driver side. It has a 13mm nut holding it on and a shaft coming out of the front end.
I am assuming your talking about the key w/tumbler and not the switch that is mounted on the column under the dash (wires attached). With this is mind you remove the cover around the bottom of column should be a few Philips head screws in the bottom (note there are deep holes you wont see them per say. Once you have done this and exposed the bottom place your key in the column and turn to run position there will be a pin hole under the key area depress this with a small punch or something similar and remove. If you have lost your key and this is why you are doing this job it just got a bit more tougher. you will need to carefully drill that pin out to remove the lock cylinder. Fords require the key to easily do this job. be very care not to destroy the soft aluminum around where pin is or you wont be able to hold the lock in place. .
I don't know if you have that auxiliary position for the key in the ignition. That got me for a while until i figured out you can play the radio without having most of the car systems on. Turn the key forward one click and pull the key out. That seems to work. If you cant turn the key, well, that might be a bigger problem.
Is it gasoline or diesel? If it is diesel, it is in the passenger side of the motor up by where the transmission mounts. It is held by three screws which can be a little tricky to get in and out since it is in a rather cramped space. It took me a little over an hour to change mine out. Since I do not have the gasoline engine, I can't say for sure about where the starter is on that make, but I would figure it would be in around the same location close to the flywheel.
Generally, you use a jumper wire on the regulator between the battey terminal and the armature terminal but only for one or two seconds so you don't burn anything up.
Its at the front of the engine, low down just on driver side of centre of car. You have to be on the ground to see it.
Lots of places install them. Shops that install radios in vehicles will usually sell and install remote starters. Call around.
Mine (5.3L) is on the PASSENGER side underneath the engine. It has 2 bolts mounting it to the block and 2 wires on the solenoid (battery and ignition). Once you remove the two long mounting bolts, you can wiggle it towards the front of the vehicle to remove it (it takes some doing). Remember to disconnect your battery first to prevent any shorts. Battery side of engine low on the engine.
Open the covers behind the steeering wheel. There will be 6 screws and some snap-ins. Look for the ignition switch on the left side. It should be behing the key cylinder. Remove the 3 screws holding the switch. You should be able to pull the switch out.
if you remove the coil cover on top of the distrubutor, there will be a red wire, a white/ or yellow wire, and a black wire which will be the ground. The Coil is not mounted on distributor in 93. It has a remote coil
remove battery terminal cables. remove positive cable from starter solenoid on top of starter. take two bolts out of starter housing attached to engine. remove starter. there's possibly a ground wire attached with one of the bolts holding the starter in. don't forget to put it back on the bolt when you put it in. bolts have 14mm or 9/16 inch head. use a socket, ratchet and extension.
attached to the engine near the flywheel You have to go under the car. toward the back of the engine.
It depends on the age of the vehicle as newer cars use a coil for each spark plug, resulting in more expensive labor. It also depends on engines, if it is a V6 or above, the positioning of the engine could be so that three cylinders are positioned towards the rear of the engine compartment (the firewall) in which case you'll be paying more for labor really than parts (it's hard to work back there)
It can cost anywhere from $100 - $500+
How much 'older'? I have a '78 Bronco. Ignition switch has a bezel ring that secures the switch to the dash. Simply unscrew the ring from the front, then pull switch assembly from the rear of dash. Once it is free from dash there are plastic clips holding the assy together.
