Subaru Forrsester 2003 electrical fault - I think

This morning while driving I attempted to turn on the radio - no go.

Then I notice the clock - no go

Then the central locking - no go

Fuses all ok.

Any clues??

Cheers

    The fact that the central locking also does not work seems to indicate a more deep seated problem than the accessories contact in the ignition

    Cheers

Could be the ignition key contact with accessories. all parts you mentioned are connected to the accessories.

wiggle the key and it might work again.

My clock light on my 2004 Subaru Forester won't light anymore. The dome light works so I know its not a fuse.


Is this for a 1999 Forester or for a 2004 forester, the title lists both years. If it is a 1999 model then the problem most likely resides within the clock itself. Unfortunately, many clocks of this vintage go bad over time. I offer a reasonable repair service and many clock removal instruction sheets at www.autoclockrepair.com
I'd be happy to assist.

My battery died on me the other day and now the radio won't work.


The Accord radio does indeed require a code. Have you tried just putting the code in. If you do not know the code do not attempt to guess, as after a few attempts you will lock the radio for good. I need to know the error message exactly as you see it if inserting the code does not work.

Clock has gone blank after a week of flickering on and off


It sounds like the LCD portion of your clock is going bad; I have observed this in the past. A new clock is in order; there are no repairs that can be made to the clock; it is a sealed unit.

My 2003 toyota corlla clock is not displaying, but


Sorry. The clock, the dome light and the radio are on the same circuit. If the radio works, the clock is bad.

Electrical issues with a 1997 Subaru Outback


I believe I can help with the clicking. The parking lights should be flashing Also. Whenever power is lost to the system IE the battery removed, The factory anti theft comes on. It is a small 4" x4" box hooked by steering column under dash. It has a red button you push for a few secounds and that should stop the clicking and flashing.

Electrical problems in subaru - can't get my brand new stereo installed and working


the airbag should be fine aslong as the light is not on. the airbag wires are wrapt in yellow plastic. check all fuses with test light cos the wires for those accesory arn't near the radio at all. there are two power wires for the radio CONSTANT and ACCESORY if you have the two around the wrong way it could cause this problem.

My 2002 Honda Civic starts - but slowly and the lights flicker


Well it absolutely sounds like an alternator issue. But i noticed you said "in the rain" correct? See this is where it gets tricky for most folks. But ill tell ya how to resolve this, if you arent having problems now things are gonna be just fine. I mean if you got up the next morning and th ecar did normal, then evidentally an electrical component had some moisture in it but has dried out now,so if it was the alternator the problem would only worsen, and within a few days your battery would fail. So I think you will be just fine
