    A tale of two flashlights, one made in America, the other made in China. Both flashlights feel well made from machined aluminum, run on rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries, are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, are blindingly bright, with a powerful magnetic base and a clip for...

    Hello, new to this forum here, but not new to Subaru. Wife and I proudly own a 2022 Forester Sport with +/- 6000 miles so far, and it's our 3rd Subaru. The reason for this post is because we noticed today that our Parking Lights (both the front lights and rear brake lights) are staying lit...

    I have a issue that started two days ago where the battery light and brake light turned on. Car still started and ran fine until today when I got in to go to work (planned on getting my spare alternator and a new battery tomorrow) and the car then lost radio power, the abs light and airbag light...

    I pulled out the wrong fuse... I meant to pull out the blower fuse but pulled the audio/navi fuse. And now it won't turn on. The fuse I originally pulled was fine (and still is) but now my interior lights aren't working either. What happened? Is it simple to fix? I'm too far away for me to go to...

    Does anyone know if the fog lights / covers are interchangeable between the 2019-21 and the 2022? Pretty sure the front just got slightly tweaked with the headlights being different but not 100%. Would like to get a pair of the JDM fog covers with the top LED strip.

    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...

    Hey everybody! I recently purchased some fog lights for my '08 XT Sport and wired them using the factory wiring and button. However when I turn on my fog lights it backfeeds the circuit and turns on my high beams. I have LED low and high beams too. I want to know if there is a way to stop it...

    I've noticed a bunch of threads on wiring aux lights, and maybe there's just not many states with restrictions, but I need some recommendations on the easiest way to wire lights that keep my forester Virginia legal. The law is, no more than 4 (headlight) bulbs on at a given time. So, having the...

    New member on here, recent purchaser of 2015 Forester XT. When initially test driving this vehicle, it exhibited these symptoms, which they explained was an issue they were working to resolve, and the dealer fixed the issue before we purchased it. 3 weeks into owning the vehicle, once again...

    I’m not really sure how to word that. But, I got tinted headlight housings and it made the light beams really faint compared to the OEM light housings. Can I put different bulbs in there to make it brighter? And if I can what would I need? I have a 2010 Subaru Forester. The current bulbs are...

    I bought a 2008 L.L.Bean edition, love it to pieces. However, at night when I shift the letters/numbers aren't illuminated. Is that light out or simply no light there?
