I'm posting here on behalf of my sister in law who has a 1996 Legacy LSi. Its Navy blue on gray leather; fully loaded.
It runs great but there are a few issues. The CEL is on and its a code (forgot the number) for blocked EGR passage. The previous owner installed a new EGR valve. You can see its new because its nice and shiny sticking out of the engine. Yet, the code is still present.
Additionally, the car's BRAKE light is on. Could the wire for the hand brake be shorted out or not making proper contact?
Also, the passenger side front pads are destroyed and have destroyed the rotor, so I am doing a front brake job tonight. Perhaps that would have a hand in the brake light problem. Is there a pad indicator that plays into the BRAKE light?
