Question about 1999 Subaru Forester

Clock not working/dead

I own a '99 Subaru Forester L. One day the clock located by the rear view mirror just stopped functioning. I checked all fuses and they are fine. What must be the problem? I need your expert assistance. Thanks.

    Thank you for the idea. I haven't had time to tinker with the clock yet but I believe your suggestion is the answer I need.

There are some 1W surface mount resistors on the circuit board for this clock. Two are labeled 300 and one is labeled 510. One or more of the solder joints for these resistors has cracked. This is a known manufacturing defect. Re-solder the ends of these resistors and the clock will work fine.

I had the same problem, I removed the clock and I found a small resistance that wasn't soldered correctly. I fixed it and every thing is OK Henry

The clock works, correct? It is just not illuminating when your headlights are turned on? If this is the case then it is most likely that you have 2 burned out bulbs. The forester clock bulb is Sylvania bulb part #2723

Hope that helps! I have a bunch of clock related info on my website www.autoclockrepair.com. Let me know if I can be of assistance.

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.

99 Forrester dome light and clock won't work...fuses are good


Did you check the underhood fuse #30, 15amp which controls illumination and the clock? It appears as though there are 2 fuses which control the clock, one under hood and one in the cabin (#9).

If your talking about replacing your Forester Clock module, you can find helpful tips at www.subaru-clock.com. If your clock is not working, it is most likely the clock module, which can be refurbished inexpensively at the aforementioned site. A "dead" or intermittent clock display is a common problem with certain years of Subaru.

2003 subaru forester clock stopped lighting. Can't find a description for a designated fuse.


Go to www.subaruforester,org and do a search for clock. This is a chronic problem but if you're handy with a soldering gun you can fix it yourself.
