Where tf is TCU?!?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to locate the tcu in my 2003 Subaru Impreza Wagon. Ive removed the dash and still cant see it. My ecu has a model number on it that starts with PCM so is intergrated into the ecu?!?

This is where it is on Legacy’s and i’d bet they didn't change the location much for Impreza’s.

 

The more important question is why do you need to find it anyway?

Thought it might have been. No idea what the deal is then.

 

Have you checked over the ECU pinouts to make sure everything is in the same place on the old ECU as it is on the new one?

The manual ecu had 3 connnectors plugged in and the auto had 4. Thats why Im thinking its built into ecu but I cant find anything online?!?

hmm... maybe on top on the tunnel under all the plastic stuff? My 99 STi had the ABS computer or something related there... so know they use that spot for "things".
