You may have a defective door switch and this keeps the displays on. Try opening the passenger front door and see if it goes out if it does the door switch must be replaced.

SOURCE: 2001 SUBARU OUTBACK, MARKER LIGHTS STAY ON WITH

The first thing I would check is on top of the steering column is a flip switch. Please flip switch. That is put there so you may have the marker lights on in case of emergency. Hope this helps and have a great day.

2005 Subaru Outback. Trip odometer suddenly said Err 55, cruise control started flashing, ABS lit up, and check engine light had come on. I noticed a day later that the regular odometer had frozen,


I found this under Fixya; 2006 Subaru Outback; there were 25 answers: The problem is not with an emission issue as you would expect with a check engine light. The ER 55 code on the odometer means that there is a loss of communication with the ECU, that is why the check engine light is on and cruise light flashing. for what ever reason whenever your check engine light comes on the cruise becomes disabled. Lame I know. I work in the service department and have seen this issue a lot. The only real way to fix this issue is to go the dealer and have them do a reflash for your vehicle. If the ECU is bad it is covered under the federal emmission wrty for 8 years or 80,000 miles

Go to Autozone,com and register your car on their site. They have fusebox layouts. It sounds like a relay is sticking in the light relays.

I hope my solution is helpful.

Odometer code "ill.5"


ILL.1" through "ILL.6" displayed in the odometer field indicate the level of the dash light dimmer setting. These messages will be displayed briefly when the dash light dimmer setting is adjusted. In the '05 Subaru Outbacks, dash light dimmers are known to fail. When they fail, the "ILL.n" message will appear sporadically in the odometer display without changing the dimmer setting. Replacing the dimmer will correct the problem.


Hope this helps

Where is the delay relay for the clock in my 2002 jetta the clock a n odometer stay on even after i take out the key


That's always on (displaying) and the only way to shut that off is by removing an internal rechargeable battery. Even when you unplug the wire harness it will store the odometer reading although the time will be lost.

When you buy a new speedo head used or brand new, it should only have 100mi or less so you can write your original odometer readout to the replacement. Above that you can't write and eventually have to start from 101mi as your reading.
