Question about 2005 Subaru Impreza

1 Answer

I have a 1998 subaru impreza outback. The switches for the front passenger and both rear windows have stopped working. The driver's window still works. I checked the fuse diagram but did not find a power window fuse listed. I'd be most grateful for any solution ideas you can offer. Thanks, Laura

    You're right. I'd checked the child-proof lock switch but forgot about this one. Do feel silly...
