02/03 and 04/05 Subaru WRX init connectors now available

Postby cboles » Mon Apr 24, 2006 5:07 pm

I now have init connectors available on http://tactrix.com for the 2002/2003 MY and 2004/2005 MY WRXs. Hopefully no one will have to jam paperclips and the like into the connector sockets anymore while reflashing :shock: ...

Is this the only connector we need to hookup?

Is this the only plug that has this shape right there under the dash? I don't see any others.. ?

You also need to hookup the green test mode connectors while reflashing or reading the ECU.

Well I was impatient and rather than be smart and wait for a reply I stuck some paperclips into the 4-prong connector between the top and bottom pins, and viola I was able to program my ECU.

I noticed there's a single prong male/female connector set right there too.. Are those the 'green test connector'? Why am I supposed to connect those?

What model car do you have? Are the connectors you mention green?

Get the cable which says "for WRX" - it includes both types of connectors.
