The fuse is only for when you are running a smaller sized spare tire. You have to put one in when you put the spare on to make the car FWD only. Go only far enough to get the tire replaced. Do not drive the car extended distances in FWD.
Ok obviously they may not have a book as well as i didn't have one i purchased my car from someone who didn't give me the book i have the fuze and i don't put it in unless i want it just in fwd but mine is green and says 15 that is what came with mine
funny i went through same problems with alternator i replaced mine five times in less than four months from o'reilly just keep taking off and taking it back i finally was so upset i just said replace it or i'm taking it back and making you give me money back they kept telling nothing was wrong but yet it wasn't right at the numbers it needed to be.

Re: subaru legacy fuse 1995
If you have the owner's manual of the car you should be able to check that out, and see which fuse it'll take. Should tell you what type, and what amperage(size) the fuse is. If it isn't in the owner's manual, it may be listed on the fuse panel cover(s).

From a Subaru mechanic: The FWD slot should not have a fuse in it. Remove the fuse and the AWD will work as it should. The slot is there for us to put a fuse in to test the rear portion of the AWD. With the fuse in, it shuts off power to the rear wheels. Remove the fuse and retest. From the mechanic I chatted with, the fuse should not be there - except when they are testing the AWD. I would take it out. He did say that if you run into a problem where the rear drive is not working correctly, you can put the fuse in, but ONLY LONG ENOUGH TO GET TO A SERVICE STATION - it is NOT meant as along term soluution
There is a fuse box in the engine compartment on the passenger side labeled FWD and, under normal conditions, should be empty. The user manual indicates that a fuse can be installed in order to disable AWD. This should be done if you are using the spare tire, the car is to be towed w/o a flatbed and when the front and rear wheels aren't the same.
I imagine that the driver checked this fuse box and found it empty and told you the fuse was blown... does this sound about right?
With the fuse installed you will get a warning light on the dash (red FWD) to remind you that your rig is running in FWD mode...
This FWD fuse box is only present on AT models.
Why was the car towed and did they lift the front end or put it on a flat bed?
You have it backwards. The fuse is not suppose to be in it unless you
don't want the rear to work. Remove the fuse and it should be fine.
That is only to have a fuse in it when you don't want the rear to be
engaged. Have a great day.
