Welllllllllll how do I say this without incriminating myself too much, after furiously mad panic stations on the sunday, it was decided that first thing monday it would be towed to the electricians! as my husband had concluded it was electrical this came after new battery fuses etc.. had been checked and many an hour spent under the bonnet.As we have a kill switch, which I had tried an still did not go also I reminded my husband of this and he screamed at me its not the bloody kill switch @#!*!!? ok, have a GREAT DAY! So come monday morning after getting up early to drop my husband off at work dressed only in my dressing gown jammies and socks and slippers I duly dropped him off and used our pajero for the day which I ended up having to put 10 dollars in. That night he returned home with the subaru and a receipt for work done I ( I had visions of hundreds of dollars worth) but noooooo $54.00 great ah! Cos it was the kill switch !!!!.
We will never speak of this again!!!!! It is often the simple things in life that we overlook? TeeHeeee.

Do you hear a 'click' when the key is turned to start? Have someone try the key while you listen under the hood. It should be the starter solenoid clicking. You need either a test light or voltmeter to test further. One large terminal on the solenoid has the large wire from the battery positive, and should always show voltage/light at all times. Test the other side of the solenoid (large terminal) that is connected to the terminal on the starter motor. It should show light/voltage when the key is turned. If it doesn't, the solenoid must be replaced. If it does show light/voltage, then the starter motor is defective (probably brushes). If you get no click when turning the key, test the small terminal on the solenoid, you should see a voltage/light change when the key is turned. If you see a change, but no click, the solenoid coil is open or the case of the solenoid is not grounding where it is mounted. Try loosening the mounting and re-tighten. If no help, replace the solenoid. If you see no change at the small terminal, remove the wire from it and using a spare piece of wire, touch the small terminal to, first, the large terminal that the battery is connected to, then to the the mounting bolt for the solenoid. If the solenoid is good, the starter should operate with one of these two tests. In that case, the starter position of key switch is open--replace the ignition switch.

SOURCE: i have a 1996 subaru legacy and I need to check

The interior fuse panel should have a cover on it that has the fuses labeled by number and description, there should be a fuse labeled radio. You can use a small pair of needle nose pliers if the under hood fuse box is also missing the fuse puller. that fuse box is mounted on your right hand side in front of the washer fluid reservoir if your looking at the front of the vehicle. I hope this info helps...(subytech1)...

Check your fuses. I think all the circuits you mentioned are on the same fuse.

My radio, car alarm, interior lights do not work on my 2006 subaru tribeca


The solution for the interior lights temp gauge etc. not working is the fuse under the hood as mentioned above.
As for the clock resetting, your battery is probably about to go. The tribeca turns off power to the vehicle if voltage drops below a certain level to save enough power to start back up. This causes the clock to lose memory.

the alarm system was most likely not installed correctly, when you install an alarm system you need to know what you are doing or you can cause countless problems in wiring, as for the gauges i would suggest checking all wiring behind the cluster (gauge panel) look for wires that have been cut and if you can not find anything i strongly suggest taking it to a mechanic for trouble shooting.

Your interior light are controlled by the dial left of the steering wheel. It is s vertical dial and a dimmer for your dash lighting but also will turn your interior lights on and off. Turn it vertically until it clicks off.
