    Afternoon all, I'm going to try and make this short. I had to replace my driver's side brake light, so I replaced both with LEDs. Then the passenger side stopped working. The socket looked a bit burnt so I replaced that as well as the fuses for good measure ( they were intact). The passenger...

    Hello all, I recently installed a set of diode dynamics SS3 Pro Type A fog lights on my 2018 Subaru Forester 2.5i. Boy oh boy was it difficult. Not only did Subaru not include any fog light housing for my car, but there was no switch in the dashboard or relay in the car for the lights. I went...

    I need assistance for my recently acquired 2003 outback. I bought it with the blinkers and hazards not working thinking it may be the relay. Now I have changed the relay, turn combination switch, the hazard switch, and have checked fuses. I even took it to a shop to see if they could find a bad...

    I have a 2010 Forester. Several times over the last year, I would turn the car off, take the key and walk away, only to hear the doors locking (flashing light, chirp, doors lock). It will continue to do this about every minute or so. Recently, it seems to have accelerated. The doors lock over...

    Took out the Air Bag, took off steering wheel, now what for replacing the switch in question. I am no good with plastic parts, so what will I need if I have to tear the dash panels out to get to the switch in question, as I suspect? There are no specifics in the manual I am using as to how...
