Question about 1998 Subaru Forester
The hazard lights keep flashing (even thought the hazards are not depressed) and draining the battery. Fuse problem?? which one? they looked good to me (but i am a mechanical novice.)
I have a 97 subaru outback and encountered the same problem. It is a security device on all newer subaru's. After changing or charging the battery, leave the negetive battery cable disconnected. Turn the key to the "on" position, then reconnect the negative terminal. This will stop the flashing.

This also happened with my 2000 Forester, when i was cleaning the battery connection. Not sure why, but after I left the battery disconnected for 20 mins to look up the solution it stopped.

I had the same problem with my 98 forester. i was cleaning my car and the battery died, the lights started to flash. i got another battery and the lights were still flashing. i ended up leaving the car sit with the lights flashing. after probably an hour i locked and unlocked my car and the lights quit flashing on there own.
