Question about 1995 Subaru Legacy

Open Question

I have a 1995 Subaru Legacy sedan. 2 days ago, I blew the fuse for the dash lights. I replaced the fuse, I turned the car, it sparked and blew the fuse. So I replaced the fuse again, it worked fine, with no problems. Yesterday, I went to drive and the dash lights were not working, and neither were the tail lights (brake lights were good). The fuses were all fine. Today I went to start it, and the engine wont turn over. I get the beeping noise of the key inserted and door open, but the engine doesnt even make a noise. What could this be? Im guessing its a ground or a short, or at least I hope so. The car is old and tired and its not worth the money to have a proffessional look at it. Any thoughts? Thank you!

Welllllllllll how do I say this without incriminating myself too much, after furiously mad panic stations on the sunday, it was decided that first thing monday it would be towed to the electricians! as my husband had concluded it was electrical this came after new battery fuses etc.. had been checked and many an hour spent under the bonnet.As we have a kill switch, which I had tried an still did not go also I reminded my husband of this and he screamed at me its not the bloody kill switch @#!*!!? ok, have a GREAT DAY! So come monday morning after getting up early to drop my husband off at work dressed only in my dressing gown jammies and socks and slippers I duly dropped him off and used our pajero for the day which I ended up having to put 10 dollars in. That night he returned home with the subaru and a receipt for work done I ( I had visions of hundreds of dollars worth) but noooooo $54.00 great ah! Cos it was the kill switch !!!!.
We will never speak of this again!!!!! It is often the simple things in life that we overlook? TeeHeeee.

your alternator sounds like its gone. ask a battery shop to come and carbon pile load test the system. sorry to say but it sounds like alt is dead. cheap enough to fix though so all good.

SOURCE: 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

Check your fuses. If you can have your car hooked up to a computer and check the code. The code will tell you where to start. Check your spark plugs and wires. Check for broken vaccum hoses or wires.

95 subaru legacy odometer and speedometer do not work


Check your fuse under dash. Then if that is not it, there is a speed sensor on transmission that may be your problem. If it is bad or disconnected it will cause a variety of problems. Good luck and have a great day.

1995 subaru legacy l the dashboard lights are not working


  • Check fuse #9 at in car fuse panel
  • Check Illumination CTRL Module for melt-down
  • Check that Tail and Illumination relay is fully seated, top center of in-car fuse panel.
The relay is most likely the cause.
