If the '04 has the same setup as the '00, then there should be a switch on the top of the steering column that will turn the parking lights on or off even if the key is removed. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2004 subaru forester battery keeps going dead, the

You have a voltage draw. Usually something like a trunk light, interior light, or glove box light.
If you can use a meter or a test light...disconnect your battery ground, and put the light or meter between the cable end and the battery. A normal draw will be a very slight light of the bulb, or a small milli-amp reading. A big draw will give a bright light or higher amp readings, so now you remove fuses, one at a time to break it down to what may be causing the draw.

Drop in to an Autozone, or Pep Boys, or similar big parts store & they will usually scan for codes free. This will hopefully eliminate all the guess work, or at least point everyone in right direction for better diagnosis. If not obvious from codes what the problem is, get back to us and we'll help you out.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the great suggestion . I'll have Autozone read the codes on Monday. Thanks again!"

Vibration in steering wheel on my 2005 Subaru Forester Xs at high speed


High speed vibration in steering is typically caused by an out-of balance wheel. I suggest having your wheels balanced.

Subaru 03 Forester - problem in front differential, 3 wheels turn


Thumping noises and vibrations can be something as simple as a tread separation(or a big bubble) on one of your tires.As for the one wheel turning---that's perfectly normal.If you grab the wheel that's turning (not really recommended) and stop it completely,the other wheel will spin.

2002 Subaru Forester with grinding noise and banging from back end, and occasional surge/power drop. Is this a differtial, wheel bearings or some other problem?


Sounds like the differential to me, when the power drops you are probably crunching a broken piece thru the ring and pinion gears. This can be very dangerous, could lock the back wheels up while you are driving down the road and get you or someone else killed.
