Hello, this is my first post here, hopefully someone can help me out
I just bought a 2002 Impreza WRX last week. It has 57xxx miles on it and was driven back to my home 300 miles from where it was purchased. This car was driven all this previous week with ZERO problems. So after looking at the access-port box that was given to me with the car for almost a week, I figured it was time to give it a shot. I took it out of the box and read the instructions. I grabbed the blue plug, the cable, the AP, and went out to my car. I followed the instructions by connecting the two green test connectors together, and then inserting the Blue initialization plug, and continued to follow the instructions. About 15-25% of the way through the flash the "Car low voltage. Check Cable?" error message displayed. So I continued to read on what to do in case this happened, and the book says the ECU is most likely fried. The car will not turn over at all and when reconnecting the AP, it says the car is in Stage 2.0 93. So I'm pretty much freaking out, but I looked around on the internet and some people have fixed it. I have both battery cables unplugged (said to leave them unplugged for an hour and retry). Has anyone had this problem before? Did I fry the ECU? Hope to have her running by the end of the day. Previous owner had everything aftermarket installed professionally at the his local Subaru dealership.
Hope to get this resolved.
