Many Subaru Outback and Forester Stereos of this age are suffering from a rebooting, or a constant reloading problem. It is common for this fault to appear at the same time you got a flat battery or changed your battery – This isn’t the cause of the fault, just the act that makes the fault appear. We have also seen units that become very slow, Bluetooth stops working, the reverse camera won’t work or stays on. Other times the unit works but the touch panel goes bad down the bottom. This is especially an issue when trying to add a new phone as the add button is down the bottom.
Supertech Electronics can repair your Subaru Outback Radio. We know this fault very well and we call it the ‘reboot of death’ or rbod. We repair these units for a fraction of the cost of a new one and we offer a 1-year warranty equivalent to a manufacturer’s new warranty.
The unit will not turn on, constantly rebooting/loading
Bluetooth not working or greyed out
Reverse camera won’t load or is stuck
The Repair Procedure
Ready to get your stereo repaired? There are two possible steps; read on
- Australia Wide – If you’re not a local to us
The majority of our repairs turn up at our workshop in a box and leave in a box so we are custom to this method. The method is usually as follows
- Contact us by our contact form or by phone to answer any questions you may have with your stereo before sending or just send away! (With our repair form in the box so we know who’s radio it is when it arrives)
- Removing the stereo out of your car. You can get your local auto-mechanic or auto-electrician to remove your stereo, a friend or even take it out yourself! We may have a removal video for your stereo.
- Pack your stereo in a box with plenty of packing material to protect it – It may have an issue but you still want it to turn up safe. Make sure you have filled out our Mail-In form and placed in the box (You can find it on this page). Once filled out, our system will automatically email you your repair form to put in the box. If you can’t print the form, the email provides information on what to put in the box. Otherwise, you can print out a manual form to fill out and send with your repair.
- Send it off to us, once arrived we book in and start the diagnosis/repair process. From here we will be in contact along the repair process
- Once repaired, tested and payment finalised we freight your unit straight back to you.
If you’re a local to us you can drop the Stereo off to our workshop if already removed from the car, or we can book a time for you to bring the car to us to have the Stereo removed. Please call us on 1300 211 773 to confirm a booking. Sometimes we can have an exchange unit available for on the spot repairs, otherwise, we would remove the radio from your car and set you on your way with your car minus the stereo for repairs.
