Fuel flow sensor, not pedal position

Hey AWD, does UltraGuage just plug in? I checked the site out. Do you have to connect to anything in the motor? Thanks

It plugs into the OBDII connector under the dash.

the remote unlock transmitter.

when i got my '16 crosstrek last year, i was impressed that it seemed to have about twice the range of my '02 legacy. (and it was nice to have the remote and key combined into one.)

but after a couple of months, i had to press it 2 or 3 times to get any action, so i figured it was time to replace the puny battery (in the legacy fob, the battery lasted about 5 years), because it was obviously being worked harder. or so i thought.

taking the sucker apart, i found the problem: the battery was fine , but the battery holder, instead of being soldered to the circuit board, uses 2 spring contacts. nice, if you expect to replace the battery holder, but 2 unnecessary extra points for corrosion, in an already low voltage circuit. considering that my pocket lint had already started invading the shell, what were they thinking?! (note to self: clean and reassemble the transmitter twice a year.)

i would love to see a much better designed "key", with a bigger battery (cr2032 instead of the cr1620), a soldered battery holder, and an easily (and cheaply) replaceable vinyl cover with integral buttons.

colour-matched to the car would be a nice touch.

It would be nice if they bothered to make the remote transmitter waterproof considering how many owners have such an outdoorsy lifestyle. And, it would reduce the effects of corrosion from moisture.

Dome light in the rear or cargo area.

I'd put (2) corner mounted LED's on the rear hatch,

that are "adjustable" facing into the cargo area.

That stock tiny light in the cargo area is almost useless.
