Hazard lights won't turn off. Disconnected battery
I see this is an old question, but I'll answer it because I ran into it myself - after hooking the battery up again, hold down the lock button on your little lock/unlock remote. If that doesn't work, hold down the unlock button. I always forget and end up doing one and then the other. In any case, it resets and the hazards should stop flashing!
How to remove the front bumper"?"
There are some steps that help you to easily remove Front Bumper :
1. Open the hood of your car.
2 . Look under the edge of the front of the car at the end of the bumper.
Pull the plastic shield down out of the way if it doesn't come off completely. Reach behind the bumper at each corner and you should find a bolt holding the corner of the bumper to the car. Remove these bolts. The bumper should come off.

Brake light on Subaru Wagon stopped working
If the brake lights don't work, check the fuse for the circuit; take a look a the brake light switch and, if necessary, the multifunction switch. You can test the brake light switch with a test light. You might check the wiring that it is completely connected or not.
What effect has err 55 on the subaru car
This is caused by one of the speed sensors. You can drive the car this way, just realize you won't have the abs.The mechanical brakes will still function totaly normal so this is not a safety issue.
Automatic subaru outback is stuck in park. It wont shift out
I fixed one of these recently in a 2003 Outback. The brake light pedal switch feeds the circuit that releases the shift lever lock when it's in Park. (This is why you need to press the brake pedal to shift out of Park.) If the fuse to this circuit is blown, the shift level lock will not release. I traced the issue to the trailer light conversion box (factory/dealer installed, I think). This car has a clear plastic plug that the trailer light conversion box plugs into and the clear plastic plug appears to be a factory-installed part of the wiring harness, accessed on the passenger side of the car, just above the spare tire compartment behind the rear quarter interior panel (you don't need to remove the interior panel to access, just all of the spare tire compartment foam pieces). I've seen these conversion boxes fail before or the wires become shorted somewhere between this internal connection and the trailer pig tail connection end. I unplugged the box from the car's wiring harness at the clear plastic plug mentioned above and the fuse stopped blowing, the brake lights starting working again as well as the turn signal lights and the shift lever unlocked by pressing the brake pedal. This car doesn't tow so it wasn't a problem but you might need to investigate further or replace the conversion box if you need the tow lights connection to operate still.

Fuel gauge does
hi it can really only be two things, first is the fuel sender on the pump inside the tank it could be stuffed or sticking causing a false reading, second it can also be a faulty fuel gauge on the dash.
