Some are built in the fuse box did it get wet or corrosion build up can cause shorting out try unplugging the battery and see if it resets check radio code if needed first before unpluging battery but i think you have a short in fuse box

SOURCE: Subaru Forester tailgate lock open, but stuck in "locked"

The problem I have found many times is the Handle on outside not returning all the way. That makes the lock not release. Check to make sure you push the handle all the way back to the closed position. I have to spray lube on the edges of the hndle every couple months to free it for my wife. Good Luck and have a great day.

SOURCE: 2006 Humer H3, Won't start and electrical resets itself

Check the battery terminals real good.Make sure they are clean and tight.Check and see if any of the side terminals are leaking. As far as the blower motor.It is more than likely that the blower motor resistor is bad.It is located by the blower motor.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Cab blower not working


Possible blown fuse, defective blower motor or blower resistor. TRy turning on the blower motor and slapping the underside of the passenger dash area with your hand to see if the motor will start working. If it does,the blower motor is getting bad. If it doesn't, You will have to check for power and ground to the motor and go from there

The power window controls for my forester no longer work. Worked sporadically for a while and stopped altogether. Not hearing any motor noise. How do I remove the door panel and what should I check for?


The switches are self contained and non serviceable so the only thing to do would be to replace the switch, which unfortunately i think your problem is. However it would be a good idea to take the door panels off and check for loose connectors.

Here is a link to a Subaru Forester owners forum which you can find a wealth of info on (I own an Outback and the forums have saved my behind numerous times). You will have to sign up to view the PDF on door panel removal but its a small price to pay, and hey, it's free. Hope this helps!

I think these codes are indicating a fault with your catalytic converter. The 02 sensors are each not returning the correct values to the ECM, causing a "suspect the 02 sensors" fault code.

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!
