Question about 2001 Subaru Impreza
So, my husband's subaru impreza rs is having headlight issues (so he's racing against the sunset)... replacing the fuse temporarily fixes the problem, but soon after both headlights go out again. Any ideas what he should be looking at? Otherwise, he'll have to constantly carry a box of extra fuses in his car...
So I'm assuming that the fuse actually is blowing. And if the headlights are still working after replacing the fuse, then you know that the headlights are probably good. I'd first try to cause the fuse to blow by wiggling the wires to the head lights and the fuse box with the lights on. check the connectors for frayed wires. and maybe bypass the blown fuse by wiring in a comparable circuit breaker until you find the problem.

Are you absolutely positive you are installing the correct amp fuse ?
I think headlights on Subaru's run thru a relay, which could be bad.
Here's a how-to that may help.

Check the Headlight Switch. If your headlights come on automatically check the headlight sensor and its associated relay.

IF the bulb is the only part you need to replace, Where the wires for the bulb are there is a large plastic ring that just 1/4 turns to release the bulb. Do not touch the bulb with your fingers. Just unplug the bulb and replace with new one then reinstall and 1/4 turn to seat it again. There are no screws to remove for the bulb replacement. Sometimes the local auto stores will do it for you. Advance Auto here will put them in for you. Good luck and have a great day.

If there is one - In trunk - directly behind the gas filler door - behind trunkliner (carpet)
The cable should not have any problems... use a partner to hold the door release and try and pry it open with your fingers.
The spring popper may be bad.
Try this if you dont have an assistant :D
I had this problem with my STI -- easy to fix by bending the little metal on the inside of the fuel door that provides the spring action to open the door. 5 second fix

Try replacing the transmission filter and the trannie fluid. Mine would only go in reverse, and now it drives pretty well. This year has a screw on filter. Hope this helps
