Unhappy MY08 Subaru Outback - Disabled Interior lights, radio & clock

Any Subaru guru out there?

I have a current problem with my 2008 Subaru Outback, While driving the radio went off and realized went I got home the interior lights don't work along with the clock, and of course I can't remote lock the vehicle

I've checked all the fuses, am I missing something? Is there something wrong with the fuse in the engine mount?

What is working: Air Conditioner, dash lighting includes A/T lighting, Headlights, hazards, park lights, indicators..

Please help! I need my radio!

Cheers, Malcolm.

There's at least one fuse that is common to all three -- it's fuse #8 in the engine compartment fuse box.

How did you check the fuses? Sometimes visual inspection doesn't reveal a break in the fuse element. Checking for continuity with a multi-meter, or just replacing with a known good fuse of the same Amperage is sometimes a better way.

Thanks mate!

You're a Gem! On the Suby it was the No.9 BackUp fuse 20A.. burnt to a crisp in the engine fuse box

Now I can enjoy tunes again.. if you were local I could've bought ya a beer

Cheers! Mal
