in my galant the problem ended up being resolved by my pulling out the entire instrument panel and all 5 or 6 or 8 bulbs were blown. It cost less than 10 dollars. just be careful though...i removed some of the instrument needles which i didn't need to do and lost one in the dash somewhere and lost some of the calibration as well. the whole panel just comes out and you can remove and insert bulbs easily from the back side. havent resolved the lighting problem with my shift lights though, they come and go and i sometimes cant see the gear finder either. but i can see my gauges now so that is a relief. no more small flashlights........!my gear shifter is center seat on the floor.

If you have any of the large chain auto parts stores in your area, call them and ask if they do free scans; most do.
If Subaru has maintained the same procedures for a while, and you have checked fluids, etc., you can try resetting the light via the ignition switch:
-Turn on the ignition (don't start) - switch it rapidly between the 'ignition on' and 'ignition off' positions three times.
If the error has cleared itself (not uncommon), the check light will reset. If the problem is still present, it will either stay or come back on.
Our Su has done this a couple of times and with the scanner we have on hand, there was never any particular repeated problem. Just a computer glitch/hiccough -

try disconnecting the + positive terminal for a few minutes and see if it goes out most likely the 02 sensor needs replacing ...however low fluid levels may also contribute to this oil,brake fluid etc.

Testimonial: "Thanks! Very helpful."
May or may-not be. Recheck your timing belt. You may just be out of phase enough that the valve is not open at the right time, or closing at the right time. If you are 100% sure timing belt is in proper phase then you may have bent a valve. Good luck and have a good day.
