    I have the same problem! 2003 outback wagon. fog lights and high beams work, but not the low beams... No lights on the dash board suggest any problem... Hmmm

    Ditto on my 05 Outback wagon. High beams, fog lights work, low beams do not only on passenger side of car. Replaced bulbs but no dice.

    this problem also just showed up on my 05 outback....both sides no lowbeam or daytime running light

  • NikkiOliver Jan 11, 2009

    Same problem. '07 Outback sport. I just changed the headlights about 2 months ago, and the drive side went out again. My sister has a '06 Impreza and has had continuous problems with the low beams.

    Same thing on my 05 Outback....fog lights & high beams work fine - but both low beam lights went out at the same time. Replaced the low beam bulbs and they work fine...for now - but am thinking there is a larger electrical issue with the car.

    Only the left low-beam headlight is out. I swapped both bulbs and fuses with the right and still have the same problem on my Subaru 2003 Outback Wagon

    I have replaced my 05 Outback wagon headlights 3 times in the last year. One seems to die consistantly every 4 months

Each head lamp also has it's own relay, you can rule the relay out by swapping the left head light relay with the right head light relay & see if the problem moves to the other side...The relays are also in the same under hood fuse box.

chapmnfarm: your head lights use a "2" fuse system.
one for the left and one for the right.
The fuse box you are looking for is under the hood on the passenger's side. It is a black box roughly 8 inches long and 4-5 inches wide. When you remove the cover, you will see fuses and relays. What you are looking for is the section in the box which has a cluster of 7 fuses. 3 in one row and 4 in the other. On the outer parameter are two relays. The fuses you are interested in are located in the row of 4 fuses, with the two closest to the "L" shaped part of the box. Both of those should be 15 amp fuses.
The fuse below those should be a 20 amp which is the lighting switch and the one below it is a 15 amp which is for the interior lights and the clock.
Check your harness grounds in the engine compartment near the area you have the problem. There are ground wires which come out of the harness on both sides of the core support. The wires are black in color and have "EYES" crimped onto the ends of the wires. Both of them will probably be located about 4-6 inches below the upper tie bar on each side of the radiator. Odds are that the eyes will be large enough to pass a 6mm bolt through.
I hope what I have given you will resolve your problem. Lem me know,,good luck>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

No, you just remove the radiator grill and the side marker light and the headlight housing bolts and it comes out. Not a real hard job and is Real straight forward. Good luck and have a good day.

SOURCE: both lowbeam headlight not working

Duralast / Relay - Headlamp Part Number:
Autozone: $39.99 I had the exact problem with my 2004 Envoy. You need to replace the Headlamp Relay. This is a very simple fix. The relay is located under the hood in box just above the battery. Pull the cover off of the box, look at underside of box to see layout of relays/fuses, i do not recall the exact abbrevaition used for the headlamp relay but there are only two relays in there that look like the one you need, just play with those two and you will get it. Do not take it to the shop, my wife took ours in and they charged us way to much to diagnose such a simple fix. You can test it before you buy the part by switching the relays that are the same around and seeing if your headlights work (they will). It is as simple as changing what looks like a big fuse.

2006 Subaru Liberty 3.0 Blitzen, 52,000kms. It's unbelievable, both my low beams went out at once and when I checked it was both the globes had gone at once. Never has this happened on any other vehicle before, I've ordered a HID conversion kit over the net, hope that works well.

I have a 1997 outback and I have no low beam headlights. any clues?

The dimmer switch on the stalk usually operates a relay in the fuse box.
It could be the dimmer switch, relay, lowbeam fuse, or odd coincidence both lowbeam filaments went out.
Use a test light and work backwards.

2005 Outback SW; in last 4 years have had no less than 8 headlight bulbs (including original equip); our 2002 never had this issue. Dealer feigns ignorance of any widespread problem. At $11/each it's...

check all ground connctions around/near the headlights for tightness corrosion, also have someone check voltage with headlights on , maybe system is being over charged by the Alternator and blowing the bulbs..

Low beam headlight is out, doesn't look like a fuse

Check the Headlight Switch. If your headlights come on automatically check the headlight sensor and its associated relay.
