    the light will go out when the problem is fixed.

    there is a diagnostic test it goes through every time you turn on the car. If something is amiss - the light will come on.

    do u mean after a repair to the airbag system? if not then the light will stay on until the problem that disabled the system is repaired.

First of all you need to solve the problem of why it came on,,,then you need a scan tool or diagnostic tool thats capable of connecting with your cars computer and has the ability to switch of the light,,,

I have a 2000 subaru legacy with no dash lights. The check engine,low fuel,brake,and air bag light work. All fuses are good. Any ideas?


I assume you mean the illumination for the instrument cluster is not working?
If this is correct than did you check the dimmer switch to see if it was turned off?

Why Air Bag signal appiared on panel?


The air bag light comes on to alert you that there is a problem with the airbag system. The air bag module will need to be scanned for codes. Once you know the codes you will be able to isolate the many different problems it could be.

Subaru Outback Legacy Flashing
Q. I have a 1996 Subaru Outback Legacy AWD manual transmission. the hazards flash when I turn the car off. I tried to reset the system by pushing the little black button under the drivers' side dash but it won't reset the system. I had problems with the brakes so I did not drive it for about two months and when I tried to start the car the battery was dead.
mechanic.jpg Now the brakes are fixed but the hazards won't quit flashing and the guy who repaired the car said I needed to reset the system by pushing the little black button. And I don't know if I should have it looked at, or change the battery, or if it is something very simple I can fix by my self.
Thank you very much,
Patrick
A. Patrick, you are the third person in the last two days that has come to me with this same exact problem under the same conditions. As of now I don't have any concrete information on this, but I believe the problem to be in the alarm system.
I believe the battery being disconnected or dying does something to the Anti-theft and Alarm System module and having a Subaru dealer reset the system will correct it.
If you do this and it works, please, let me know and I will pass the information on to the others.

Dear Mr. Ciulla,
I read your Q&A titled "Subaru Outback Legacy Flashing". I recently had the same problem on my 1996 2.5 liter Subaru Legacy Outback and your response is correct but I can give you a little more detail on what worked for me to stop the light flashing (which occurs sometimes if the battery had been dead):
There is a black reset button under the I/P near the anti-theft module.
  1. Turn ignition on
  2. Hold button 20+ seconds (door locks will lock/unlock 3 times)
  3. Turn ignition off
This also resets the key FOB so as step 2.5 you should also press the "lock" button on the key FOB before releasing the black reset button (door locks will lock/unlock one more time--do this with each key FOB you own). That's all!
The questioner in your Q&A said he tried the reset button; I suspect he either didn't turn the ignition on/off or didn't hold it in for over 20 seconds.
PS... pulling the door lock fuse will stop it temporarily if you can't get the above to work and have to take it to the dealer
Regards,
John
