Where is the headlight relay for a 1985 subaru gl

I have a 1985 subaru gl 1.8L SOHC, nonturbo. The dash lights, head lights, and tail lights wont come on till the car is good and warm, but when they do come on they stay on and do not flicker. the colder the car is the longer it takes for the lights to come on. i believe it's the relay but i can't find it. Can anyone help?

Most relays for most vehicles will be in the fuse block in the engine compartment,

SOURCE: Tail lights out as well as dash lights. 1995 pontiac bonneville

you need a head light switch. buy from carquest (significantly less expensive then dealership).
remove knobs (small insert on pull knob press in with a small flathead while pulling towards you, twilight knob pops right off)

take off the cover plate over steering wheel (pop out with flat head screwdriver)

then cover over instruments (small torx bit 5 screws, 2 hidden by previously removed cover).

three small bolts hold in light switch.

1995 mote carlo ls headlights come on, but parking lights wont, neither will dash lights? Checked all fuses, but not relays.


If you'vegot headlights, brake lights and blinkers, but no park or tail lights and no dash lights, it's time to replace the headlight switch. Hopethis helps.

What started this mess? tailights, fog lights, brake lights....


The relay has nothing to do with the tail lights, but replacing the switch sounds like a good idea. There's a nut holding it in place, see http://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/electrics/switches/switch-headlight/1027524/ to get an idea of the construction. And the price. This is not worth fiddling about unreliable workarounds...
In addition, if fuses 15 and/or 16 burn frequently there might be a problem with the tail light cabling.

Good luck

'91 Subaru: dash & running lights won't turn on with headlights


This is a problewm I have been researching. On the 91 Loyale there are two headlight relays. The relay for the left headlight also controls the instrument lights and the running lights. If the right relay is working and the left is not, the left headlight will be dim because of a back electrical path through the high beam indicator light on the dash, but the instrument and running lights will be out. I have been trying to find out where Subaru put these relays, but three Subaru service departments have been no help. One dealer's service department told me to remove the large bezel around the instrument panel. I did and the relays weren't there. Lots of luck.

2007 subaru outback headlight problem


Each head lamp also has it's own relay, you can rule the relay out by swapping the left head light relay with the right head light relay & see if the problem moves to the other side...The relays are also in the same under hood fuse box.
