    We have the same problem in our 96 Legacy, but it's our parking lights and the dash board lights. We don't know how to fix it - but instead of disconnecting the battery, we just disconnected the fuses for those lights. Did you ever find a solution?

    On my 1999 Subaru Legacy GT, the parking lights stay on when the ignition switch and light switches are in the off position. I presumed there was a stcking relay, but I pulled all the relays in the main fuse box under the hood with no change. I pulled the 20 amp fuse, and that shuts off the lights. Is there a relay hidden away somewhere?

    I have the same problem on a '95 Outback (pulling the 20amp fuse also kills the dashboard lights).

On the top of the steering cowl is a switch.. this switch is to allow you to leave side lights on while vehicle is parked and locked. It works independent of the light switch. Check that you have not switched it on while cleaning car. If not the problem is in this system and not your lights.\

DID YOU ALREADY TRY FLIPPING THE SWITCH ON TOP OF THE STEERING COLUMN?

Try to pry out the plastik, and spray some oil. Rust on the contactors is probably the major thing.

Expect to hear your head gasket needs replacing, at a minimum. White smoke means it's burning coolant. How much it will cost I can only guess, but usually a head gasket repair- a few hundred dollars-it's pretty time consuming and labor intensive, especially with all the turbo stuff that could be in the way. Good luck.

Binding on tight turns are usally caused by a fault in the transmission tail end.
You can check in the following order.
1. Trans fuel level/ Change several time to flush the system..
2. Speed Sensor that sits on top of the tail end.
3. Duty-C Solenoid inside the tail end
3. Clutch Pack

AWD not working


Did you know that there is a fuse under hood on Passenger side that I have seen people put the fuse in the missing spot. Problem is it is only for towing the car. Remove if fuse is present and see if it fixes your problem.
