PO420 is for catalyst system efficiency below threshold. I have seen this many times on vehicles from 96 up. It is due to the system not burning the fuel at what it considers an acceptable rate. Todays fuels are not the best we could have for internal combustion and sometimes it will set off the light. I tell my wife she is too easy on the car and it's not burning the fuel proper. After a couple days it goes out. It will not harm your engine and should go out again. Fuel system cleaning additive will also turn of light. Good luck and enjoy your Subbie. Greatest car ever Built.

Testimonial: "Did you get my last response? I was at the subaru dealership part dept. today and had them run the program for recalls, was told there was none. I still need the answers for my original questions?"
Both the turn signal and hazard warning flashers are mounted on the fuse panel.
To remove a relay, simple pull the relay out. When installing a relay, make sure the terminals on the relay line up with the terminals in the fuse panel.
Most of the replaceable fuses for the electrical system are located on the fuse panel under the instrument panel, to the left of the steering column. In addition to the plastic fuses installed in the fuse box, there are 1 or more circuit breakers and a flasher relay.
For access to the fuse panel, remove the fasteners from the lower edge of the cover, then pull the cover downward until the spring clips disengage from the instrument panel. On the base models, the cover simply snaps on and off.
The locations of various fuses are illustrated in the owner's manual, and in some cases, on the cover of the fuse panel (in the pic check inside the circle).
Hope that helps.
