Question about 1998 Subaru Legacy
With new charged battery and new alternator it blows 10A fuse and loses dash speedo & Tach, power windows and heater fan. Looked for frays or shorts. Found wire connection under dash above gas pedal unhooked. Green connection blue/white on one side Red/Black on other side. Hooked it up and check engine light started blinking unlooked whires and engine light stayed on constant. Any help finding the short or problem?

SOURCE: Recently, my wife's 1998 Subaru
I had the same problem on our 1999 Forester after replacing the battery. Here was the solution I was given by Subaru Santa Cruz.
1) the key to the ON position where all the dash lights up. 2) disconnect the NEGATIVE battery terminal. 3) wait 15 seconds then reconnect the the battery. 4) start the engine from the ON position.
If this doesn't work, the car must be taken in for repair.

Under the dash on drivers side is the black box for the security system. If you look on the box there is a little red button. Push the button for a couple of secounds and it will click and stop your marker lights and dash lights from flashing. It is a stock anti theft part of the security system. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: tach & speedo not working
Had same problem with my 2000 dodge stratus 2.4 liter and transmission would not shift out of 1st gear. Solution was ignition fuse under the hood was blown, one side of fuse working, replaced 10 am fuse everything works, tach, speedometer, gas gauge and transmission started back to shifting.
