Most Subarus have a switch on the top of the steering column that you usually can't see that allows you to leave your running lights on since most Subarus have the auto off lights. You should just have to switch that and it will be fine.

AWD went out in my 1998 Subaru Forester?


This recently happened to my 98 Subaru Legacy Outback.
My problem is in the rear differential. May be the same for you.
When making a turn, the car sounds like a Star Wars T.I.E. Fighter. The outside wheel is not turning fast enough to keep up with the inside wheel or vice versa. AWD is disengaged and car is currently operating on Front WD. I was told this is fine to drive this way.

1998 Forester cargo light won't go off


Yes these are the switches. It sounds like they have gone bad or the wires to them have gone bad. Your best bet is to try and find the other side of the switches on the interior of the car and see if anything looks bad. I dont believe there is a fuse but it is worth looking to make sure.

98 forester awd rear wheels not engaging runs fine other wise drive shafts, axles all in good shape no noises in drive train. no codes,no check engine light on


Just a thought, Check under bonnett on passenger side is a fuse that when installed dis-engages the rear drive. Remove the fuse to engage the rear drive. Sometimes people see the open fuse holder and fill the slot thinking it is missing. Truth is it is only for short towing. Good luck and have a great day.

1998 Forester. Changed the fuse for the door


have you tried disconnecting the battery, maybe the system needs reset, and this is normally the easiest way to do it.....if this doesnt work, then you either have a faulty relay, or an earthing problem......

Check the cap and rotor for internal carbon tracking or, just change them. Also, take a look at the coil when its dark and rainy and see if there is any arcing where the coil wire goes into it.

Emergency lights stuck and won't shut off


Suspect faulty flasher relay. Relay is somewhat like an "On/Off" switch. If it fails, it will stick ON or OFF..in your cause it is ON allowing the hazard lamps to work continuosly without enabling the hazard switch. If the relay is tested good then replace hazard switch.
