Question about Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

I have a subaru legacy 1995 estate, it's the boxer twin turbo and I can't get the reversing lights to work that are on the tailgate. I have checked the fuse (wording on the box all in *** but I have a handbook off ebay ) and it's okay and I've tried new bulbs. Isn't there some kind of little switch on or near the gear box I could check/change? If so how do I locate it please? Thanx

The switch is call backup light switch.

Inspect / clean the entire unit end to end.

Spray WD-40 or similar fluid on the plastic male and female socket ends to rule out bad contact points.

You may use a meter to check the socket for conductive resistance (when pressed)

I attached two pictures to help you identify the plastic socket that you need to disconnect and clean.
UK/International switch may look sightly different from USA version.

Remove / adjust this switch on level ground.
Transmission/gear fluid will leak out during removal.
MAKE SURE THE ENGINE and TRANSMISSION/GEAR BOX IS COLD before removal.
Top off / inspect all fluid level after switch installation.

This backup switch retail for around $45 USD.

Good luck

Hi, I have a '95 2L Legacy Boxer 2 stage twin Turbo. When i'm driving and the engines reving at ot just above 2000 rpm I'm getting a dip in power for a moment before it picks up again. I haven't noticed...


the 1st thing that needs to be done here is to find what fault code is turning on the check engine light, this information is absolutely crucial to making an accurate diagnosis of this problem, guessing is not an option as each part that could cause this is very hard to replace and very expensive, so get the the engine control system tested, this is what is called OBD 1 electronic engine control and requires a Subaru scanner to read code.

Legacy estate overheat problems


I would replace the thermostat as a first step. It sounds like the thermostat is not opening after warming up, keeping the coolant from circulating.

Sudden loss of power when travelling for a few seconds,


The spark plugs for your vehicle are located 2 on each side of the engine. They are a little difficult to get to because they are right by the frame. Follow the plug wires from the coil and you should have no problem finding them. Hope this helps Good luck.
