How can i make running lights shut off. I have to disconnect leave it sit over nite? Its a 02 outback l.l.bean

If you look on top of the steering column, between the gauges and the steering wheel, you will see a rocker type switch. If you see any orange color on the switch that means it is activated. Push the switch so that there is no orange showing and your park/running lamps will turn off. It is your park lamp override switch, Subaru has this option due to all power for lights turn off with the key in the off position. So they gave people the option to turn them on with the key even in the off position.

Why are the headlights staying on when ignition is off

Under your hood is a plastic box with relays in it, the headlight relay is stuck. Tap it with something and it will release. Probly should replace the relay. See owners manual or google the headlight relay location. Cheap at an auto store.

2009 subaru outback will not start and a light with an E

are you using a factory key>??? If not you probably have an immobilizer system installed. It takes a special key and that key needs to be registered with the BIU. Bring the vehicle to a Subaru dealer. They can program it for you.....bring ALL your keys at the same time. They need to be programmed together.

The rear gate on 2004 Subaru Outback will not open with key or electric locks. How do I open the gate?.

Here is a quick try for you that works for me. Push the handle and make sure it is all the way returned to the closed position. Then try the lock, power or key. Then try and open. I have found that if the handle does not return to closed position it will not allow the lock to operate. Hope this helps and have a great day.
