  1. Disable Sound Generator

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Hello- I will be picking up my new '14 BRZ Limited in a couple of weeks. Would like to disable sound generator with minimal effort- Could I just plug the hole under carpet in passenger's footwell using a 7/8" nylon plug?
  2. Any way to get rid of the "I Agree" disclaimer when powering on?

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    I find the startup application that asks you to "I Agree" when powering on to be a major PITA. When you first power up, the NAV unit takes about 20 seconds to boot up, then goes to the splash screen that makes you touch "I Agree". But by the time I get to that pop-up, I am already down the...
  3. Driving with VSC completely off a bad idea?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    So I have had my BRZ for a while, I drive this thing 110% all the time. I have put 7000 miles on it since I bought it used with 6500 miles on it. Felt really comfortable with the car. Was running with Rota RT5 staggered setup, 9.5 rear, 8.5 front with Falken FK-453 225/255 setup. Lowered...
  4. BRZ trunk lock button

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    OK so long story short, a buddy of mine gave me a 50cal ammo box to put in my j20 for tools. while i was transporting the box. I am guessing it just rolled over and hit the lock button. Know i cant get into my trunk. I put my key in the slot and tried to open it (didn't work), I hit the trunk...
  5. Trunk latch problem

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    The other day, my trunk decided (multiple times) that it wanted to open all by itself while I was going down the road. Here's a video of my solution. Subaru BRZ trunk latch strap - YouTube
  6. Unlocking passenger door?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I have a BRZ limited and have not found a way to unlock the passenger door without using the push button on the keyless remote. Only the driver door unlocks with the door handle sensor. If I go to the passenger door and pull the handle it unlocks both doors. That's how it's described in the...
  7. Keyless entry stopped working completely

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    So I've got a Limited 6MT and the other day my keyless entry stopped working completely. Unlock when you grab the handle? No. Pop the trunk with the button above the license plate? No. Press the button on the fob to unlock? No. I wound up having to pull out the mechanical key from the fob and...
  8. Windows - Auto Up/Down Disabled

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I've been searching the owner's manual and didn't find anything on this, so hopefully one of you has run into the problem. The auto up/down function is not working and the place where it says "auto" on the window switch is flashing. The auto up/down not working doesn't really bother me, but...
  9. Windows freezing shut and not auto-closing?

    Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    Twice now my windows have frozen shut and when I close the door, the window doesn't raise properly to fill the gap and I have to push the button to get it to close. The Auto light on the window button flashes on and off. The last time was a few weeks ago and after about 48 hours it started...
  10. Navigation Functionality Issues

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    On my way into town this morning I decided to key in my destination to see if there was a faster route to my usual destination. I tried to key in the address but the button you select to enter a physical street address was grayed out. I searched all over looking to see if there was another way...
  11. How to Create a USB Music Flash Drive for the US Factory Head Unit

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    While most of this will be specific for Mac OS, UNIX (Solaris) and Linux I'll cover Windows too. General Tips (every OS) 1) Always reformat the USB Flash Drive and Format it as FAT but not exFAT stick with FAT32 when possible. 2) I recommend creating a single directory at the Root of the Drive...
  12. In the market...

    New Member Introductions
    Hey, all. Do not own a BRZ but... Been lookin' for a couple years for an all-year, all-season, long-distance commuter(NYC-central PA). I know, RWD, but if it helps to understand my lack of a problem with that, I drive a 'Vette in the winter, too. I have a couple simple questions about the BRZ to...
  13. Disabling the navigation "safety" features

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Does anybody know how to disable the safety features of the nav unit? By safety features I mean: disabled add/edit route while driving and dimmed route itinerary while driving. I know they are safety features but I grew so used to checking the route itinerary with my Garmin. Any help is much...
  14. Trafffic not working? heres why...

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Well my flipping out about the navigation unit in the BRZ is reached its ZENITH!!! After coming back from work today with the damn GPS scrambeling to find a signal during the 30+ minute commute, (with no luck might I add) in heavy traffic, I decided to finally call Subaru and ask them why it is...
  15. Driving with VSC off....

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I'm curious, do any of you drive with VSC completely turned off on the road? I like to push the car pretty well when winding through the backroads but aside from the sport setting I don't think I would be comfortable without something to reel things in if the rear starts to slide about which...
  16. Can ABS be turned OFF?

    Subaru BRZ Engine and Technical Discussion
    Is it possible to defeat the ABS system without messing up the traction control and stability control systems? Alternatively, is it possible to defeat ABS while accepting the loss of the traction/stability control aids? Pulling a fuse(s), perhaps? Why, you ask? Because I feel safer, with more...
  17. Does the BRZ come with any sort of launch control on the automatics?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I was just wondering if the BRZ comes with a launch control feature on the automatics. I know on my S4 that once you disable the traction entirely it enables you to depress the break and the gas to get the engine to the right RPM and then let go of the break to launch. Anyone know?
  18. Permanent Traction Override Switch

    Subaru BRZ How to / Do It Yourself (DIY)
    Scion FR-S Permanent Traction System Disable Switch Warning This DIY bypasses the three-second button press safety system that was placed on this vehicle to keep idiots from spinning their cars into trees, off of bridges and over small animals. Driving without traction control turned on by...
  19. Blocking Your TPMS Light

    Subaru BRZ How to / Do It Yourself (DIY)
    Blocking Your TPMS Light OK, you swapped wheels and you didn't swap in your TPMS sensors. This means that you experienced several minutes of glee when your TPMS light didn't illuminate, but then it started flashing in your face. While there may be some fancy technical way to disable the system...
