Question about Subaru Outback

Subaru Electrical Gremlins

My Subaru Outback has electrical issues - auto door locks don't work, dash and tail lights out, now the car won't start - doesn't even click when you turn the key, though the idiot lights and overhead lights come on fine, so the battery I assume is fine. Fuses all check out. Someone thinks there is a crossed wire or back wiring harness - any ideas?

How come my wagon won't start but only sometimes?


Sounds like weak connection somewhere,I would start by one at a time,clean by scraping the prongs of each fuse. If this does not resolve your issue go by one of the parts houses that provide free electrical and charging system checks

Central locking system


Sounds like this car was under water...????

Not knowing the year is a down point.!

I would remove and check all fuse block relays and switches. Both under the hood in engine area and under the dash.
If it was me, I would bring it to a auto electrical shop and have them check to system.

2000 subaru outback trunck won't unlock/open


Is it a lift back or window and tail gate? Either way, there is a little hole on the inside for the escape hatch. Take a small pin, wire, coat hanger, push it straight in, it should pop the window, door, whichever, might be a small button over the hole, that way you can get the door lock fixed without smashing the lock off. I never tried mine , but I know all cars have them now. Check it out.

Battery drain on 04 Sedona


It may be expensive to have someone fix. Electrical gremlins can be a pain to find. If you could locate the issue then it might not cost as much to get fixed. Start by looking at all the wiring you can for any rubbing or bare wires. Something is grounding and draining the battery. I've seen a wiring harness rub a bracket on the back of an engine until it shorted, causing all sorts of issues on a civic.
