Hello, I have a 92 Subaru svx auto that cuts off when put into drive, any ideas?

Asked by Oct 16, 2012 at 06:46 PM about the 1992 Subaru SVX 2 Dr LS AWD Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was doing some trouble shooting on my car that I just bought and found a plug undone on top of the trans, when I
plugged it in and put it in drive it cuts off. But when I unplug it it starts off in either 3rd or 4th gear. Any help would be
greatly appreciated. Thanks

1 Answer

the trans tcc senors bad. car runs fine and shifts fine when unplugged, the tcc is to help with gas mileage. tcc stands for trans control circuit.
