    how do you know if your boost solenoid is bad?

    Is there a way to check you boost solenoid or do you know just by your boost? I have an 03 wrx only running 7.25psi and i did a boost leak check yesterday and found nothing. I heard it could be the bcs but i dont know how to check. Any advice is great!

    Put the car in test mode, and turn the key to the "ON" position.

    The BCS should "click"
