Question about 1997 Subaru Outback
Some of my lights will not turn off. I believe they are the tail lights, backup lights, front turn signal lights and side marker lights (basically the parking lights) They all remain on even if I turn the engine off and remove the key. Note: it is definately not the parking light switch above the steering column, lights remain on in both positions, blink when button in on position.This had run my battery completely down.I also noticed an intermittant clicking with or without the key on. That was the remote key access box until I disconnected it.Now I am unplugging the new battery everytime I stop to avoid draining it.My thinking is that the problem exists somewhere under the dash, wherethe switch that controls these lights is defective. Where do I start?Has anyone had this problem or is familiar with the unit that controls these lights?Please help.Thanks,Ian
Do you have a trailer hitch with a wiring convertor box when these malfunction you have some crazy problems,if not you may have a broken solder joint on the steering column switch i have seen this before
