It's definitely the switch...I bought two of 'em so far...known bug. I don't use the fog lights as much anymore , but the "Airtex" oem equivalent switch from Rockauto seems to be holding up well. If you dissamble your broke switch you'll probably see evidence that it is beginning to melt and theres alot, maybe too much, grease, which may or may not have been the cause of the bad, heating contacts inside switch.
If I remember right, even though the foglights have a relay there is still full amperage going through the switch or something....don't qoute me on that last statement.

chapmnfarm: your head lights use a "2" fuse system.
one for the left and one for the right.
The fuse box you are looking for is under the hood on the passenger's side. It is a black box roughly 8 inches long and 4-5 inches wide. When you remove the cover, you will see fuses and relays. What you are looking for is the section in the box which has a cluster of 7 fuses. 3 in one row and 4 in the other. On the outer parameter are two relays. The fuses you are interested in are located in the row of 4 fuses, with the two closest to the "L" shaped part of the box. Both of those should be 15 amp fuses.
The fuse below those should be a 20 amp which is the lighting switch and the one below it is a 15 amp which is for the interior lights and the clock.
Check your harness grounds in the engine compartment near the area you have the problem. There are ground wires which come out of the harness on both sides of the core support. The wires are black in color and have "EYES" crimped onto the ends of the wires. Both of them will probably be located about 4-6 inches below the upper tie bar on each side of the radiator. Odds are that the eyes will be large enough to pass a 6mm bolt through.
I hope what I have given you will resolve your problem. Lem me know,,good luck>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I have a 2003 Subaru Forester. When the car is off and the key is out, the park lighs remain on. I have checked all fuses and the trailer plug (looking for feedback) with no success. Any ideas?


most likely its your ignition switch ,or it could be your brake relay switch under your brake pedal take it to auto zone and the will check it for free ,if your brake relay switch is not working ,that means it is sticking and it leaves the brake lights on ,but doesnt neccerly mean tha the brakes wont funcktion properly : ) i know it has happen to me before

1998 Forester. Changed the fuse for the door


have you tried disconnecting the battery, maybe the system needs reset, and this is normally the easiest way to do it.....if this doesnt work, then you either have a faulty relay, or an earthing problem......

Forester 1998 Battery & brake light switch on


Check to see if your Alternator belt is still on.. If it's connected to your power steering it won't work and your battery will not charge. Also if you hear a whining noise in your engine replace the belt if it's there.

Emergency lights stuck and won't shut off


Suspect faulty flasher relay. Relay is somewhat like an "On/Off" switch. If it fails, it will stick ON or OFF..in your cause it is ON allowing the hazard lamps to work continuosly without enabling the hazard switch. If the relay is tested good then replace hazard switch.

Subaru intermittent Headlight socket


Had same problem with my 1999 Forester. Jiggled socked for months until I separated it from the lamp and noticed part of the socket had melted and cracked. Checked internet for socket and hoping I wouldn't have to spend big bucks for whole light assembly just to get the socket part. No luck. So called Subaru dealer in Richmond and was told that Subaru doesnt make socket anymore. The good news is they puchase universal standard socket in piggytail form. So for 8 bucks, I got the univeral socket and spliced into existing three wires and works perfectly. The guy at the dealership parts department, which is different from service department, said that they routinely sell the sockets since it is a know problem, of which models not sure. Didnt purchase one for other headlight, if it goes, since guy says they stock the part all of the time. Sounds like something you could get from electical stores, etc. besides Dealership. Hope this helps.
BTW, got screwed on the bad headgaske problems...wasnt under warranty and total near 2500 bucks. Their solution of adding coolant conditioner is a con job.
