Question about 2004 Subaru Forester

1 Answer

Service lights don't come on

A few days ago I discovered my front side lights and the rear running lights (the yellow ones) were not illuminating when the light switch is turned on. Please forgive the inconsistency with the terminology - I'm not sure what the proper names are but these are the extra yellow and clear lights in the light assemblies. No problem with the headlights (both high & low beam) or tail/brake/backup lights and the blinker lights come on as they should when the turn signal is engaged. My fog lamps work. I checked my fuse box - no blown fuses. Looked in my owners manual and there is not much information on how these lights are powered. I did find info on replacement bulbs but I'm finding it hard to believe they all went out (front and rear) at the same time. What steps can I take to troubleshoot this problem?

SOURCE: Low beam headlight is out, doesn't look like a fuse

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

Hi

Most definitely check out the headlight dimmer control switch. Isolate the wire that comes from the headlight switch to the headlamp bulbs for low beam and check to see if there is a short in the wire. You can find this wire by using a test light turn on the key and get a good ground with the test light poke the wire and see if the test light illuminates with the headlight switch on.
There is a daytime running light module that controls both low beams and the daytime running lights. The low beam bulbs may be OK. The high beams will work fine as they are not controlled through the module.
It may be possible to disable the daytime run lights by cutting the yellow wire going into the module and then connecting it to ground. Tape off the other end.
Check this video,it will help you locate and disable the day time running light:-

Radio wiring code for 1987 mercedes benz 300. With aftermarket radio the windows switch ligths blinks and have no instrument ligths.


Hi, the aftermarket stereo does not use the illumination wire. You must tape that wire off (purple/gray). That wire is either connected to the wrong place or is touching chassis ground and causing your instrument lights to dim.
Connect the stereo's red wire to the car's black/yellow wire; and connect the stereo's yellow wire to the car's red/white wire.

Where the fuse box to a 88 ford thunder bird 5.0 liter


The fuse panel is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, next to the emergency brake pedal. You need to remove the under-dash insulation to access some parts of the fuse panel.


If it doesn't have a diagram inside the box, here's one I found online: http://www.coolcats.net/tech/reference/images/fusepanel.jpg
