Subaru outback not starting

Subaru outback not starting DEFAULT

 

 

It can be very frustrating when a vehicle won&#;t start.  There are many different issues that can cause the problem.  This article is written with the assumption that you are looking for a way to get your Subaru Outback started now, and is meant to provide you with practical advice to help aid in the diagnosis.

There are really two main ways that a vehicle will not start.  The first and most common is when it won&#;t turn over.  This just means that the engine doesn&#;t move when you turn the key.  The second way that your Outback won&#;t start is when the engine turns when you engage the starter, but it won&#;t fire and run on its own.  When the engine isn&#;t turning over at all, that&#;s a bit easier to diagnose than when it is cranking but not firing.  Just use the jump list below to move to your particular situation.

Subaru Outback Won&#;t Start:  Not Cranking

There can be many reasons why your Outback won&#;t start.  But, there are less things to troubleshoot than if it were cranking but will not start.  Here are some of the most common issues that cause a vehicle to not crank:

 

1.  Battery Cables

While the battery cables are not necessarily the most likely issue to cause your Outback to not start, they are some of the easiest to diagnose.  You can take a look at the battery poles where the cables connect.  If there appears to be green or white corrosion all around it, cleaning them may help get you back on the road.

Here&#;s a good article from Napa on how to clean a battery terminal properly.

 

2.  Battery Charge

If your battery no longer has enough charge to turn the starter, your Outback will not start.  As a battery ages, it&#;s &#;cranking amps&#; decrease, leaving it with a diminished capacity for starting the vehicle.

When this happens, you&#;ll often hear the vehicle crank slowly, but not start. 

You can take your battery up to the local parts store, or even Wal-Mart, and have it tested to see if it is still holding a charge.

  • Battery is Dead&#;  If it&#;s dead, but charges back up and tests &#;good&#;, it would be time to check the battery terminals or have the alternator tested and see if it is properly charging the battery.
  • Battery is Charged&#;  If the battery is charged, then it would still be advisable to take a look at the battery cables and see if there is an issue with corrosion.  Otherwise, it may be the starter that you need to look at.

A bad alternator can cause your battery to lose enough charge to start your Outback.  It may have had enough energy to get you home, but when you go to start the vehicle, there&#;s not enough stored energy for the engine to turn over.

 

3.  Starter

The next thing to look at when your Outback isn&#;t starting would be the starter itself.  When the starter isn&#;t functioning, it is impossible to start the vehicle (unless it&#;s a manual, then you can pop start it).  

If you&#;ve determined that a fully charged battery without corroded cable is the culprit, then it&#;s time to question whether or not you need a new starter.  When a starter goes bad, they will usually not give you much warning first.  Also, if you are stuck somewhere and are trying to start your Outback, the old beat the starter with a hammer trick is not a wives tale.  It really can get that one last start out of it.

 

 

Subaru Outback:  Engine Cranks → Won&#;t Start

There are a lot of issues that can cause your Outback to crank, but not start.  The engine needs air, fuel, and a spark in order to run.

It is highly likely that if the engine is cranking, but not starting that it has thrown an OBDII code.  It is definitely worth it to use an OBDII scanner to check and see if the engine has thrown any trouble codes.  It is highly likely that if your Outback won&#;t start that there will be codes.  These codes will tell you what the computer is saying is wrong with your engine.

By looking them up on this site, or just Googling them in general will lead you to a detailed diagnosis of that code.  Hopefully, once the code has been addressed your Outback&#;s engine will start again.

 

Subaru Outback Won't Start Diagnosis

 

1.  Fuel Issues

If your Outback isn&#;t getting enough fuel, or any fuel at all, it may have a bad fuel filter, bad fuel pump, or bad fuel injectors.  Without the proper amount of fuel getting into the combustion chamber, the Outback will crank, but not start.

 

2.  Ignition Issues

One of the biggest issues that causes a vehicle to crank but not start is ignition issues.  When there is no spark, the engine will not start.  You&#;ll probably have a misfire related code such as P, P, etc&#;..

Ignition issues can be caused by many things, including bad spark plugs, bad coil packs, bad plug wires, computer issues, and more.

 

3.  Engine Timing

If the engine&#;s ability to fire the spark plug at the right time is called &#;timing&#;.  If the plugs are firing at the wrong time, or something has happened to cause the camshaft to no longer be in sync with the crankshaft, your Outback won&#;t start.

There will usually be OBDII codes associated with timing related problems, but not always.  P is a common camshaft position related code.  The crankshaft sensor can go bad as well.  When these sensors go bad, it can be impossible for your Outback to start.

 

4. Security

Most modern vehicles come with smart keys that have electronic protection built in.  This makes it more challenging for thieves to steal them.  There are occasions where this security system will cause the Outback to not start.  You&#;ll see a security warning when trying to crank the engine though.

 

5.  Other Issues

There are a lot of issues that can cause your Outback to not start.  That&#;s why it is so important to check everything.  Here&#;s a great diagnostic chart that covers many different variables.  

 

Conclusion:  Subaru Outback Not Starting

There are many reasons that your Outback may not start.  Tracking them down can be downright challenging.  With enough time and patience, you can diagnose exactly what is wrong.  Good luck with the diagnosis.  If there is anything that you would like to add, please leave a comment below.  Thank you.

Subaru Outback randomly doesn't start

I have the same car.

I would recommend getting an inexpensive multimeter and learning how to use continuity mode which will tell you if two wires are connected or not.

Next time you get a no start condition, use the multimeter to determine if the starter solenoid is getting the signal to start. If the multimeter indicates continuity, you know it's your starter.

If there is no continuity at the starter, you know the problem is further upstream. There's several switches that can prevent the signal from getting to the starter. Transmission safety switch (only lets the car start in Park or Neutral) or clutch safety switch (only lets car start when depressed). There's also the ignition switch itself (that's the switch that is activated when your key turns).

The standard battery that comes in the Outback is very marginal. I bought a used certified Outback, less than 36K miles. After about 4 days I stopped at a fast food joint, ran in for 5 minutes, came out and the car would not start. To make a long story short, I leaned on the dealer, they put a heavier battery in, no problem since then. It is a great car, but upgrade the battery.

I have the same problem. My car was towed 3 times to the dealer. First time they changed the battery. Second time they kept it for a few days and said they was a leak in the fuel pump and put a new one in. Third time they changed the battery again. Yesterday after a 3 day weekend I had trouble starting my car. Eventually it started but this should not happen. Every time they say they can’t find a problem. I called Subaru headquarters to report the problem last year. I spoke with them again today. They said they automatically put in a stronger batter each time. I have a outback I have had problems from the beginning and my warranty is expired. Headquarters wants me to bring it back to the dealer for diagnostics again. I don’t have hope they will find an answer.

GuruBPRVD - did you get a final diagnosis? My car is the same make/model/year and I'm having the same problem. It runs fine, then all of the sudden it won't start. Took it to Autozone and they said the battery was fine. When I hit the start button everything flashes on and dials on the dash all register but nothing turns over, no sound of the engine even trying to cut on. At the same time to park break light comes on and stays on for about a minute. The break pedal also won't depress. Appreciate any info you have.

The battery that comes in the Outback is marginal. When it would not start, sometimes it would roll over a little, other times would not do anything at all. Usually this occurred when the car was warm. The dealer did a battery test and said it was up to specification. After I complained enough, the dealer replaced the battery with a heavier duty higher amperage one. I have never had a problem since then. The dealer fessed up the original batteries in them were marginal and Subaru was going to be using a heavier battery in the future. My daughter had a similar issue with her outback. I am not sure on the break pedal issue.

I have a outback, and I have been having the same problem for about two years. I have replaced the battery and the alternator, and the car will still run fine and then randomly not start. After a jump / charge the car will run fine for a while and then the cycle will repeat. I am going to run a parasitic drain test on it tonight and I will update with my findings. A lot of people seem to have this problem but there are not many answers.

My car didn't start today. I tried it later it started without a problem. I now have to go to work and it won't start again. I put the key in the ignition and it's just not starting. The battery is fine.

If it is original Subaru battery, replace it immediately with a heavier duty battery and the problem should go away forever. I am not sure why the issue is intermittent, but the newer cars have a different wiring system, called a "bus" system, and if the battery is not at a certain voltage level, it will not trigger the starter, even though there might be enough juice to actually crank the engine.

I'm having the same exact problem with a Outback engine Touring model that Notacarguru1 describes: It runs(starts) fine, then all of the sudden it won't start. (NO battery light displays, dash lights and AC kick in very bright as usual) When I hit the start button everything flashes on and dials on the dash all register but nothing turns over, no sound of the engine even trying to cut on. (EXACTLY, engine is doa, all else looks fine) At the same time to park break light comes on and stays on for about a minute. The break pedal also won't depress. (YES!)" I found that I can get it started by monkeying with the little black button "temote start" thingly on the keychain. I started toggling between (press button 3 seconds followed by a double click) and then the opposite, (double click then press button down 3 seconds) Every time it snaps out of it after this little button press ritual with remote start in the keychain. I also repeatedly press the start button without holding down the brake. Test the brake for softness when the button turns RED. You know its back to normal when the brake pedal goes soft againit restarts easily. It has to be some kind of electronic issue, not battery related at all. VERY annoying, though. Taking it into Team McGill Subaru in Houston as soon as I can get an appointment.

How do you know it is not a battery issue?

It definitely was the battery. We had the same exact experience. When we started the car, everything lit up but the car wouldnt turn over. Even though we took the battery in and it tested fine, it didn't have enough power. We changed out the battery to a higher amp and havent had a problem since. The OEM battery isnt strong enough.

When the problem first occurred, I called AAA and they jumped the car, started immediately. I took it to the Subaru dealer, they ran the battery through some "extensive" test and supposedly it was fine. But when I replaced the battery with a new heavier amperage battery, the problem went away, and I have not had any issue since then, and it has been almost a year. My point is, the battery may test fine, but if it is an original battery that came with the car, or an exact replacement, the test may not be valid. Replacing the battery is only about $ and then you can eliminate that issue. My daughter had the problem with her Outback, replaced the battery with a stronger one, issue went away.

My vehicle is doing the same thing, I do not drive it everyday. What battery do you all recommend?

Mark helpful

I don't have a specific recommendation, but AAA sells batteries now, or go to a battery store like a Interstate Battery Store, or good auto parts store, and tell them you want a heavy duty battery for that car, and they will fix you up. The standard battery that comes in the Outback is extremely light duty.

That is exactly what happened to me. My car was two years old, but certified and still under warranty. They dealer ran an "extensive" test on the battery and said it checked out fine. I really leaned on the dealer, I told them I wanted my old trade in back, so they finally put in a new heavier duty battery-problem solved. Maybe the battery test does show the battery meets OEM specifications, but the OEM specifications and battery are very marginal.

Having this same issue. Two months ago my Outback wouldn’t start despite having JUST been driven to work. Then on my lunch break it wouldn’t start. At end of work day co-worker helped me try to jump start it. It wouldn’t start. So I removed battery and took to Autozone and they said the charge was a little low. I took home and put on trickle charger overnight. Took battery back to car and re installed it and car started right up. Now two months later, car has sat for 10 days and won’t start again. Based on what I’m reading here I’m going to get a heavier duty battery and hopefully that will get this problem solved, and get me through this Cleveland winter. Don’t like reading about parasitic drainage though!:( how can you test for parasitic drainage?

My sons GF parked her car at the airport for a week in Minnesota, wouldn't start when we got back from vacation. Had it jumped and checked out at Subaru the next day, they said abandonment issues haha (they actually laughed), everything checked out??? A year later exact same situation, brought the car back to Subaru, after checking it over said it was the engine cleaning feature that drained the battery. No way to shut it off, not acceptable answer. When you have to sit in an airport parking lot in the freezing weather for 2 hours waiting for Subaru's service to jump your car at 1am. This is a Legacy. They told her she would have to wait until the middle of March to get the car in to be checked over, since it was a lease they got her in right away. The best part they started asking her to buy the car since the lease was over soon. No answers, No service, No purchase!

I'm having the same problem with my Outback. What I can contribute is that there is a law firm researching a class action on this issue. I think the firm was CSK&D. You can sign up on their site.

I just encountered this problem with my Subaru Forester. No lights, nothing when you push start. The husband took the battery to O'Reilly Auto Parts who tested it and said it was fully charged. The AAA guy told us it was not sending the charge to the engine.. I think I will look into the class action suit.

I have a Subaru Outback. A year ago, I purchased it used (certified) from a Subaru dealer. I ran into many of the same problems mentioned above, where periodically it would not start. I got the dealer to replace the battery with a heavier one (Subaru SOAB) and have not had a single issue since then. The dealer finally admitted (verbally) the standard factory battery they come with is marginal.

Mark helpful

How about my brand new Outback with miles? This is the ultimate in what should not happen. I have had the vehicle for about 2 months and with Covid 19 have had almost nowhere to go. Sounds like what most of you have said about the battery. I'm calling Subaru Roadside service tomorrow. Interested in what they will say. It's 9 pm and not worth waiting for tonight. As I said before, no place to go tonight fortunately. The only postive Covid thing that I have ever heard of. I had nowhere to go so did not get stranded. I'll let you know what the driver does.

All modern cars have a battery drain with their computer and emission systems. If you are not going to drive it for a period of time, like two weeks, it is a good idea to put a trickle charger on the vehicle to keep the battery up to %. The trickle chargers are inexpensive and easy to connect. If you were using the vehicle regularly, it would probably not be an issue.

I happened upon this thread looking for a solution to my problem, which is that my car will not start, although it tries and battery is fine. As car was beepingdoor open, I had a thoughttry my other car key. I had charged battery times and jump started it. Turns out the key works at unlocking the cars, but something about the key when it is in the ignition it acts like a dead battery and the car will not start. I hope I didn't do damage by jump starting it multiple timesthis is an Original Subaru key that came with my car.

Outback and I have the same exact problem as DMooreTX and its not the battery, its been replaced to a Optima. The problem went from happening occasionally, to more frequent, and now it wont start at all. I watched that video on the fuses but every 15 amp is good. I noticed that the dash says briefly to put in park but its already in park and of course the pedal won't depress either. I also read about the brake switch problem with the other models but the Outback is not listed. When I get it fixed I will report back but If you know a fix that's not battery let me know. Their battery's are separate issue, I had my original battery warranty within the first year because it was swollen.

Same issues with my Outback. Started happening approx 6 months ago, no rhyme or reason to when it won't start. At the dealership now, had the battery tested about a month ago and it checked out fine! Very frustrating as I use it for work (homecare RN) , do not want to be stranded somewhere. Bought the outback (my first Subaru and my first brand new car) based on reliability and safety. This is the opposite of reliable!! If I find out anything other than getting a new, stronger battery I will definitely post results!

I am having the same issue with Legacy. Lights turn on and it says put it in park. But it is in park. Happens frequently. Dealership keeps telling me nothing is wrong. They replaced the shift sensor or something like that. Still having problem. It never happens first thing in the morning. It's always after I have made several trips like running errands. Did not have a problem for two months but I also barely driving for two months due to Covid Now it's back to not starting. Supposedly no codes triggered. Crazy frustrating. At least I know it's not just my car. But I still need a car I can rely on.

Just reporting back after taking my Outback to the dealership. After 2 days of the car not starting I was going to have it towed to the dealership and that morning it started. The dealership quoted me around $ to diagnose it, although in the end did not to charge me. Here's what they said: "Unable to duplicate concern of vehicle not starting and gauge cluster saying put into park at this time. Vehicles brake control module was scanned for any DTC, and tech found DTC C parking position switch circuit. Per Subaru diag tree chart for DTC C step 1) check operation of electronic parking brake, does the electronic parking brake operate properly, Yes. Per diag Chart A temporary poor contact or noise interference is a possible cause. No repairs made at this time. Tech set vehicle outside and thru out the day tech went to start vehicle multiple times and was able to start up with no abnormalities, or error message. DTC has not returned after clearing codes." Here's a separate issue that they found: "Upon inspection tech found cracking in exhaust manifold, covered under warranty." They kept my car overnight to do the extra repairs and I could report that the car has been starting every time since 6/18/

Bikemuscle, my dealership also said not duplicating issue. But my problem is never just guest in the morning. I told them to drive the car. Take it home. Try to duplicate it like a normal person would drive the car. This is the 6th time it's been in to be fixed since February. Not taking it back until it's fixed. Told them to look at this thread or call corporate because it's not just my car.

Sounds similar to what myself and my daughter experienced. I took it to the dealer, they checked the charging system, checked the battery, said everything is OK, but still it would not start sporadically. I replaced the battery with a much heavier duty model than comes with the car. It has been about 14 months now, not a single issue. I think the equipment the Subaru dealers have doesn't replicate what the battery encounters in the actual car. Regardless of what the dealer does, I would buy a new heavy duty battery for the car and see if the issue goes away. Several sources have told me you can only expect years from the newer batteries, whereas the older ones I always got at least 7 years easily.

I have a Subaru Legacy and I've had the same problem. Brand new Optima battery with full charge. It has happened times and I always get the car started after messing around with the transmission lever and the key for minutes. It always happens when running errands when it is cold (below 0F (C))

Mark helpful

I'm glad I found this thread. My '18 OB Limited is doing the same thing. I thought it might have something to do with the key fob battery being low and the car not registering it, but, it lets me turn the car "ON" the car just won't even try to crank/turn over. It seems to only happen when the vehicle is warm. For example, it just happened for the 4th time after fueling at the gas station. Got in, wouldn't start. Just held the brake pedal so I didn't compress it and kept pressing the button until about 2 minutes later, it started finally. I'll try the battery fix I guess this weekend.

2015 SUBARU OUTBACK Not Starting, Won't Crank kosmic-webzine.com.

According to automotive experts, “The most common causes that hinders normal starting operation of your Outback are dead key fob battery, dead 12v battery, corrosion on battery terminals, bad alternator, clogged fuel filter, broken starter, blown fuse, empty gas tank, immobilizer error or any fault in the electrical system.”

Auto Repairs Are EXPENSIVE


Since introduced in , the Subaru Outback is a superb vehicle attracting tons of buyers every year. Subaru Outback is now one of the most popular vehicles and the best-selling cars on the road.

While many amazing features come with several Outback every year, customers still report starting this vehicle.

Many reasons might prevent your Subaru Outback from starting. Going through a list of potential reasons can be overwhelming for many drivers, especially inexperienced ones. 

When your Subaru Outback won't start, the short and simplest solution is to inspect the car's battery and the battery connections. When you jumpstart your Subaru Outback, you will immediately determine whether the problem is related to the batter or not. If the car failed to start after the jumpstarts, you need to immediately tow his vehicle to a professional mechanic to resolve the issue. 

When your Subaru Outback won't start, it will be associated with other symptoms that can help you pinpoint the actual root of the problem. 

For example, your Subaru Outback won't start lights flashing, Subaru Outback won't start clunking noise, several Outback won't start in park, Subaru Outback won't start in cold, silver Outback won't start no power, Subaru Outback won't start security and more.

This article walks you through every possible scenario and all types of symptoms you might experience when your silver Outback won't start. We will provide you a detailed solution and some workaround tips and tricks to temporarily resolve the problem to get to the repair shop.

We will also list some rough estimates of replacement costs for standard faulty components. 

Subaru Outback won't start 

When your Subaru Outback won't start, you need to check the battery and the battery connections because those components produce the initial electrical current to your vehicle’s components.

Symptoms of a bad Subaru Outback battery and battery connections 

In a previous article, we discussed in detail the different symptoms you might face when your battery or battery connection fails: “If you notice the dim headlights, a key clicking sound, backfiring, and slow cranking, then your battery is at fault. If you notice loud noises and an alternator voltage leak, then you could be looking at a necessary repair or replacement for your damaged alternator.”

Simple workaround 

If you are Subaru Outback battery was determined to be faulty, you can perform a quick jumpstart and get the vehicle going. Once the jumpstart kicks in the vehicle, leave the car for a couple of minutes to charge before taking it to the nearest repair shop.

Automotive experts never suggest using jumpstart as a permanent solution for your Subaru Outback. This is because jumpstart can be an odd action that might disturb and damage all sensitive electrical components, especially if you're driving a modern Subaru Outback. 

If the problem is coming from bad connections, you can inspect these connections and see any corrosion or lose connections. You can tighten the connections and clean up the emotion to get these connections working back again.

If the connections are broken or damaged, the only solution is to replace them. 

How much does it cost to replace a Subaru Outback battery?

Whenever it should, replacing your Subaru Outback battery costs about $ This number does not include dealership or labor costs. 

Subaru Outback won't start lights flashing 

Another common situation is when your Subaru Outback won't start and lights flashing or dashboard lights flashing. If that's the case, the problem is most likely related to a drained battery.

It indicates that your battery still has some slow charge to start the lights but not get the vehicle started.

If you don't already know, your engine requires a massive amount of electrical current to get started, and that's the starter's job. The starter is responsible for converting the small electrical current from the battery into a larger one to get the vehicle started.

If the battery cannot send a good amount of electrical current to the starter, you will notice that the engine one starts and the lights are flashing. 

Subaru Outback won't start clicking noise 

When your Subaru Outback won't start, and you still hear some quick emerges, the problem is most likely related to bad connections or burnt wires. 

We discussed this also in detail in a previous article “The clicking sound could happen when the starter motor isn't receiving enough power due to corroded battery terminals&#;. The clicking sound could also be due to a frayed wire or loose battery cable ends. Loose battery ends can interfere with the connection, preventing the vehicle from starting.”

If you already inspected your vehicle's battery connections or the wires, clicking noise also happens when you have a bad or faulty starter motor.

While the starter motor is expected to last for a long time, it is not rare to deal with situations where you're bad start her cause your Subaru Outback not to start while making some clicking noises. 

Symptoms of a bad Subaru Outback starter motor 

Luckily, when your starter motor goes back in your Subaru Outback, you will notice some of the following symptoms :

  • Strange clicking noises coming from your vehicle after turning the key 
  • Your vehicle's lights will work, but the vehicle will not start 
  • Engine cranking but not revving 
  • Smoke out of your Subaru Outback exhaust system 
  • Your Subaru Outback starter might be soaked with oil 

In the most common scenarios, one unmistakable symptom of a bad starter are “a distinctive clicking noise when you turn the key or push the start button in your car. Unfortunately, a starter can also die without any sound at all, or it may announce its death with some whirring and grinding, which can show the faulty starter symptoms.”

Simple workaround 

Unfortunately, when your Subaru Outback starter goes bad, there is no clear workaround to the problem. All you can do is request a towing company and deliver your vehicle to the nearest repair shop. The faulty starter must be replaced immediately to get your Subaru Outback on the road back. 

How much does it cost to replace a Subaru Outback starter motor? 

Depending on your vehicle's model year, replacing a Subaru Outback starter can range from $ to $ 

Subaru Outback won't start in the park 

Several owners reported having some issues with their Subaru Outback starting after they parked the vehicle. In most scenarios, the problem is related to something in the electrical system or the key fob battery.

 

Simple workaround

While it's hard to provide a simple workaround when your Subaru Outback won't start in park, you can test and try starting your vehicle with a different key or using the physical key.
