Broken Clock

Posted by khk

Who would have thought that a broken clock in a Subaru Forester is so common… Mine stopped working about half a year ago, it usually displays the time for a minute or two after I start the car, but then the display turns off. Initially, I could restore it with a good whack, but that stopped working too.

So, I googled, and I found pages not only with reports about the “broken Forester clock problem”, but also with repair instructions. It turns out that a cold solder point is the cause.

I just touched up the solder points, let’s see if the fix actually works (and for how long).
