Question about 2001 Subaru Outback
Two things happend: Got stuck in the snow and had to dig out, and hit the parking light switch while driving with the lights on.
Now the rear running, plate, and parking lights will not go on. Break, hazard, and turn all work fine. I've checked the fuses behind the coin tray and next to the battery, everything looks good. The light bulbs all appear to be fine. Suggestions appreciated.
Corvis: from your description, it still seems as though you have a blown fuse. I would venture to guess that you don't have instrument lights as well. You might want to recheck the fuse for this circuit and or replace ir with a new one just for grins. The fuse you are looking for is behind the coin tray, In looking at the fuse block, you have three rows arranged vertically, The one you want to remove and replace is on the far right row and it is the second fuse up from the bottom. It's a 10 amp fuse, red in color.
That circuit is served by that one fuse. You might also check to see if there is power to that fuse block at the terminal the fits in. It should be hot all the time.
There is also a Tail lamp relay, however, it doesn't address the other lights which makes me want to rule it out. Try what I have suggested first and let me know. Fuses can sometimes look good and be bad.
