Hi,
could be a faulty combination switch or a joint in the wiring harness creating a short circuit. Take it to an auto electrician. I believe you will find a solution.

On my 2004 Impreza ther is a switch on top of steering column that turns those lights on all the time. Look for that switch.

SOURCE: Need to reset check engine light on 2002 Subaru Imprezza 2.5

1st u need to know if the check engine light comes on there is a fault present, you need to have the system computer tested to get the fault code that is set with the check engine light illumination. the system in your car is very sophisticated and has the ability to work round most system problems, this means u will feel no diff in the way the car runs, u can reset the light by just disconnecting the battery negative for 5 min's, but the light will come back on if the fault is still present.

SOURCE: parking lights

on the top of the steering cowl is a switch.. this switch is to allow you to leave side lights on while vehicle is parked and locked. It works independent of the light switch. Check that you have not switched it on while cleaning car. If not the problem is in this system and not your lights.\

1998 expedition yesturday was low on fuel got gas drove with headlights on got 4 miles down road vehicle died thought was bad gas 3hrs later vehicle would run but abs light and brake light would flash


There is a problem in the electrics of the vehicle. First place to start is to check the alternator drive belt for condition and tension. Next place is the battery terminals and condition and tension . Third place is to have a load test done on the battery as it may have an internal short and drawing all the current from the alternator. In effect when you add power requirements ( park lights then brake lights then headlights) you are actually using more current than the alternator can supply to keep the engine system running.

There's a pair of connectors, green, under dashboard on left. They should be left unplugged. When they are plugged together, they cause the lights and fans to cycle on and off for diagnostics.

The running lights on my 2005 Forrestor will not turn off and are running the battery down. I removed the fuse for now, but why can't I turn them off completely?

Parking lights are blinking off and on after it's been shut off for at least 2 hours. We had to put in a new battery last week, and today my husband put in new wire and plugs.


set the anti theft,then disarm it,and see if the problem is gone,make sure the doors and the hood and trunk are closed,and locked when setting the alarm.

Parking lights are blinking and right blinker is blinking


Hi there.
Your main problem is that you have a bad earth on one of your lights .
Dose the side lights still blink with the left hand blinker flashing and dose the Tail lights also blink when the parking lights flash(if so you have a bad earth on 1 of the lights either rear or f/parking lights)
If you cannot find it call into the local elect autos and they can fix it in 15 minutes max.
Other wise let me know and i will work it through with you
