Do you hear a 'click' when the key is turned to start? Have someone try the key while you listen under the hood. It should be the starter solenoid clicking. You need either a test light or voltmeter to test further. One large terminal on the solenoid has the large wire from the battery positive, and should always show voltage/light at all times. Test the other side of the solenoid (large terminal) that is connected to the terminal on the starter motor. It should show light/voltage when the key is turned. If it doesn't, the solenoid must be replaced. If it does show light/voltage, then the starter motor is defective (probably brushes). If you get no click when turning the key, test the small terminal on the solenoid, you should see a voltage/light change when the key is turned. If you see a change, but no click, the solenoid coil is open or the case of the solenoid is not grounding where it is mounted. Try loosening the mounting and re-tighten. If no help, replace the solenoid. If you see no change at the small terminal, remove the wire from it and using a spare piece of wire, touch the small terminal to, first, the large terminal that the battery is connected to, then to the the mounting bolt for the solenoid. If the solenoid is good, the starter should operate with one of these two tests. In that case, the starter position of key switch is open--replace the ignition switch.

Owners manuel chapter 11 & 12 should show you the fuse box placement and layout..there are two fuse boxes, inside behind the coin holder to the left of the steering wheel, slide out the holder..I believe #5 on the fuse box is the fuse for tail/brake lights. Also under the hood in the engine compartment on drivers side there is the main fuse box.

Side lamps and tail lights not working 2000 subaru legacy


You do know that on Subaru's there is a switch on the steering collum that runs the running lights? If that's off the mark, then check your fuses. The one you will be looking for is marked "tail" in the fuse box.

1997 Subaru Impreza Tail lights work but brake lights don't even though the Hatch brake light is working


Hi,
So, both sides are not working? Check for voltage @ the brake light bulb to see if you're getting power. Also, look in the fuses.

check out the online Subaru forums, too.

My taillight (rear - passenger side) is not working - the other one on the driver side is. I change both bulbs in the non-working on (bulb #1157) and the tail light is still not working. What do I do...


Check the bulb socket. They get really hot and heat can cause the wires to melt solder holding them in place. If you have a test light, probe the socket pins for power,(light switch on). If none on either pin, then probe the wires an inch or so back from the socket. If wire(s) have power replace socket. If not, and even if you find power on the pins but the lamp doesn't work, then also check for a bad or loose ground wire.

Replace tail light legacy


In side the trunk behind the light you need to fix is a small access panel. Just open and replace bulb. Very simple and straight forward. Good luck and have a great day.

You begin by opening the rear-lid.
Remove the plastic panel.
Turn backward the bulb-holder.
[This will make it come off its housing]
Push-in the bulb, and turn it backward.
[it comes off]
Reverse these steps for installation.

Legacy wagon tail light replacement


The one thing youll find with subaru's is that they like to put nuts in funny places that are hard to access. There are either 3 or 4 nuts holding the tail-light assembly in place, which means youll need to take out most of the inner panels to access the others. You should not need a sealant unless the rubber seal is done for or there is water inside the car. Hope this helps
