Question about 2000 Subaru Outback

2000 subaru outback signal lights

Sometimes the signals and hazards would work sometimes not. Now they have stopped altogether. I have replaced the flasher and it didn't help. I saw on a message board that it could be the hazard control switch and ordered it from the dealer. I took the car apart this evening and the plug on the hazard switch on the dash is burnt. The contacts are not melted simply discolored where it appears to have been hot. Is this the switch they are selling me and do you think this could be the problem?

Yes these switches can go bad. If it looks bad replace it. I have had switches like this do the same thing after several years of use.

Signal lights only work intermittenly

The blinker relay is getting worn out. It's right behind the hazard lights switch. Pull off the black trim around the radio, hazard, ets, and the relay is write there. Next time the blinkers stop working hit the hazard button or hit the trim just above the hazard lights button. Mines been doing it off and on and I just hit the trim above the hazard button and they start blinking again. Never have time or remember to get a new relay.

Where is the electronic flasher location in a 2000 subaru outback

Subaru really doesn't call it a flasher or relay. They call it a hazard and turn signal module. I do not have a picture of it but below is a picture with an arrow as to where it is located and the picture below that on is what the plug or connector looks like and I can tell you that I'm about 95% sure it is a black plug/connector. I hope I was able to help....
