1999 Subaru Forester speedometer not working

On several occasions the speedometer needle would go crazy going a complete 360 degrees then return to normal.
Now the needle is sitting on the wrong side (right side) of the 0 miles stop pin. I can see when I start driving that the needle is trying to move clockwise but is held back by the 0 miles stop pin. How do I get the needle on the other side of the pin?

About the only way is to diassemble it, but it sounds like it's not wrth doing. Your speedometer is having some real malfunction issues anyway. Might as well get a new one (or used). If you did get the needle to the right place, it's just going to end up in the wrong one again.

Where is the fuse to the windshield wiper fluid sprayer on a 1999 Forester Subaru?


Have you tried taking a clothing pin and clearing the spray tip? I've had my WWF nozzles clog on me before, I noticed it when only one side was spraying. I just took a sewing needle and unclogged it, worked fine after that.

After jump starting our 2004 Subaru Forester, the tach, speedometer and odometer no longer function. They appear to be on the same circuit in the fuse panel behind the coin tray, but the fuse doesn't...


On another forum someone said to disconnect the cables from the battery; press on the brakes several times to release any electrical charge still in the system; wait a few minutes and reconnect the battery cables. It worked like a charm--speedometer, tachometer, and display all function now!

Subaru Forester hesitates turning


Just know you're not crazy....my 1999 Saturn S-Series is doing this too, particularly at low RPMs when I turn a corner. It feels like its going to stall like a manual car, but is auto. If anyone has a solution for us I'm curious to find out....

2004 Subaru Forester Dash Lights out. My speedometer and tachometer dash lights are out. Only the fuel/engine temp lights are still working. I need a flashlight to see my speed at night.


Take a look at your dome like switch to see if it can dim the overhead light any.If it can't, I would start there. If that checks out, then check all connecters going to the instrument panel to see if any of them are loose.

Speedometer does not work 1998 Subaru forester


Sounds that the magnetic pickup on the vehicle speed sensor has stopped working. Dirt or grease usually. That will cause an erratic reading. Also check wiring to sensor. Poor connection is rare but possible. Good luck and have a good day.
