My Honda has the LED DRL under the headlights, which are a short and narrow style, and the turn signal on top of the headlights. The DRL stays on and the turn signal is very bright.

I'm thinking pinion shaft, throw-out bearing or even torque converter problem. In that order. There are lots of used transmissions out there. Unfortunately.

The smart-aleck answer is to take it back out and put it in rice to absorb the moisture like you do with a cell phone that has been submerged. It sounds like a short on the board or between switches....

Front end clicking is often related to axle CV joints. Have those checked out. If it is the axle, use a re-manufactured Subaru axle, not an aftermarket brand.

It sounds like the classic air in the system problem Search for that here. The 3.0 engine is more prone to it and it is an easy washer replacement to fix it. I did replace the two washers in my 2.5...

WHY? Baby on the way? Felt silly driving the boy racer car? Got a job where you need to act like a grown up and park where your boss can see you? Just why go from WRX to grocery getter?
