OK, there's at least a fuse problem to be investigated. If the rears stopped first, then look at the harness that runs thru a rubber tube from the roof line into the rear hatch. These wires can break with age. It's rather fiddly to fix, but can be done.

If the fronts got slow then stopped, pull the valence panel in front of the windscreen and then the wiper arm assembly. The arm pivots often rust up with age, effectively overloading the motor. It's fixable, but the replacement arm assembly is not unreasonably expensive.
Wiper motors rarely burn out, but is not impossible.

My 1999 subaru legacy wont start after i hit a dear and why ?

If it was a front end hit it could have set off a switch that shuts down the fuel system. I'm not sure where it is on your car but the owners manual show where it's at. You can just press it and reset it. This is a safety feature.

1999 Subaru Forester has developed a shake when accelerating, esp. between 20-30 mph. Wheel bearings replaced - didn't help. Tires checked, balanced, etc. - didn't help. Front end allignment - didn't help....

Auto or 5-speed?
Subarus have CV axles in front and back. And a drive shaft from the center differential of the transmission to the back differential.

Yes, it could be the drive shaft or axle. If you turn the car hard left or right do you hear any noises - usually a 'clicking' sound? This is likely a CV axle in front.

Check the fluid in the transmission (Automatic) (info is in the Owner's Manual) to make sure it's full and/or gear oil in the front differential.

If it's an Automatic transmission, the fluid may need changed - NOT FLUSHED - if it has more than 30K miles since last changed.

My 1999 Forester Subaru wheel bearings are bad both rear wheels not to mention the front I just had repaired at Firestone for 600.00 Is it worth the extra money to take the car to Subaru, a 300....

Are you sure that they bearings are really bad, bad tires can also give you a growl noise from the bearings if they are different or worn badly. It should not mater where you take it to have them done, just that they use good quality parts and replace them properly. Hope this helps and have a good day.

Flashing check engine light 1999 Subaru

Any time your check engine light is flashing this indicates an engine misfire that has the potential to damage your catalytic conveter. A diagnostic trouble code has been stored in the vehicles onboard computer that will confirm the engine misfire. Continued driving may ruin your very expensive catalytic converter located in your front exhaust pipe.
Good luck, I hope this answers your question.
