2004 Subaru Legacy Speedometer light

When the lights are on, the right half of the speedometer is dark on my 2004 Subaru Legacy wagon. Is this easily fixed, or something I will have to go to the dealer to repair?
Thanks all!

    Is that removed from the front? If so, how does one go about that?

No this is a easy problem. All you need to do is remove the speedo face and replce the globe behind there.

How do I remove and replace the speedometer on a 1991 suburu legacy wagon I have a code for VSS2 which is the speedo speed sensor


The speed sensor is located on the transmission output . I don't think the problem is in the dash. Go to YouTube and type in where is the speed sensor on a 1991 subaru legacy and it will bring up all related videos. Hope you find this useful.

1990 Legacy: speedometer not working...


The first thing you can always do is check your fuses. there might a blown fuse that need replacement.The 1990 Legacy has a mechanical speedometer . The speed sensor is a read switch in the speedometer head itself. So if your speedometer is functioning ( needle working properly ) then the internal read switch is defective. That requires replacing the entire speedometer OR it can be a defective connection between the speedometer and the ECU.If the speedometer is not working, then you can have a defective speedometer, cable, speedometer cable adapter ( on the tranny ) or internal speedo gear in the tranny. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

93 subaru legacy gt cuts out at around 100kph check engine light comes on, restart car and it is fine. car is a auto and doesnt seem to do it as much if car is in 3rd instead of drive


Check The Vehicle Speed Sensors.

The Legacy has 2 Vehicle Speed Sensors (VSS): VSS1 is located inside of the transaxle; VSS2 is located in the combination meter assembly.

VSS1
  1. Disconnect the electrical harness from the transaxle.
  2. Connect an ohmmeter across the transaxle's electrical harness terminals 9 and 16.
  3. The resistance should be 450-650 ohms.
  4. After testing, reconnect the electrical harness.
VSS2
  1. Remove the instrument cluster from the instrument panel.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connectors and the speedometer cable from the instrument cluster.
  3. Connect an ohmmeter or continuity tester across the combination meter terminals 7 and 11.
  4. Insert a small screwdriver in the speedometer cable drive socket.
  5. Rotate the speedometer drive and note the continuity across the VSS terminal. Continuity should turn ON/OFF 4 times per speedometer drive revolution.
