Question about 2008 Subaru Outback
The Running lights wont turn off when the car tuns off. The wiring is tied to some of the middle console lights as well, as they dont turn off either. I found the fuse directly related to this in the engine box, but its not blown or anything. Ideas / Thoughts?
More then likely a short . Find power wire and run it elsewhere from switch

Did you check the switch on top of the steering column? It will turn on your parking lamps separately from the headlamp switch, and it is in the customary position for a hazard flasher switch on Japanese cars - maybe someone bumped it by accident or turned it on when trying to get the 4-way flashers to work.

Testimonial: "That was it, I don't know how that was switched on. It is strange they stay on when the key is off and not in the ignition!"

does the vehicle have an alarm system??? possiblly causing fault, or if the battery is fine, check the main fuse in fuse box located in the engine bay beside the battery,

Definitely not, the wiring is nothing similiar between these two models. For a wiring diagram for your 85 model you should be able to find a Haynes manual for the GL-10, it should cover everything you need.
