they are turned on by a switch which is turned on and off by the position of the gearshift in reverse. get a service manual for a few bucks on ebay, or visit a dealer and have them show you the location of the switch. if it is easy to get to, you can take it on yourself to remove and reinstall with new.

SOURCE: 1999 subaru legacy. right front turn light

I believe you are correct. Whenever lights start doing goofy things like that it is almost ALWAYS a ground problem. I can help you. I can tell you EXACTLY where your turn signal and headlamps are grounded. However, There is one small problem. Subaru got STUCK on the "Legacy" nameplate. There are ten different Legacy models listed for the 1999 model year. If you can tell me which Legacy model you own, I can look up the wiring diagrams for your vehicle and provide the information you need. The choices are as follows:
Legacy Brighton Wagon AWD
Legacy GT LTD Sedan AWD
Legacy GT Sedan AWD
Legacy GT Wagon AWD
Legacy L Sedan AWD
Legacy L Wagon AWD
Legacy Outback AWD
Legacy Outback Limited AWD
Legacy Sport Utility AWD
Legacy Sport Utility LTD AWD

Just post a "comment" to let me know which one it is and I will post the information back to you.

SOURCE: reverse lights don't work. replaced

is this car an automatic transmission? if it is then you will need to check the gear selector switch on the transmission. I have seen one that would not properly engage for the park/neutral and reverse switches to function but the car was still drivable.

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:-

Hi,
So, both sides are not working? Check for voltage @ the brake light bulb to see if you're getting power. Also, look in the fuses.

check out the online Subaru forums, too.

I have a honda accord LX 1991 and the brak lights don't work, the only light that works is the driver side brake light. also I have all new bulbs in the car.


Sounds like the brake bulb sensor unit is short circuited. It is located inside the rear driver's side, trunk mounted tail light housing. It will have to be replaced or opened and repaired, to eliminate the short circuit.

There are a few items to check: Fuses [ should be listed as stop, or brake light ] there's a reason if blown, Bulbs [ they have an average life span, you may have 2 that happened to burn out at the same time ], Wireing [ may have a cut or broken wire in a harness in the rear or a trailer light harness problem if equiped.]
