    Hey guys not a problem I’m having but just had a quick question. Do the headlights on a ‘98 outback turn off on their own if left on? Been home for about an hour and remembered I left the headlights on so I went outside and they were off. I figured I killed the battery but it started right up...

    Hello everyone, I stumbled upon here to ask a question after purchasing my 2017 Outback Limited. First Subaru I've ever owned, owned a Jeep Patriot prior and a Volkswagen Jetta. I was even looking at a Jeep Wrangler, but due to questionable MPG and my commute weekly, it wasn't the right fit. I...

    Does anyone have a successful technique for restoring foggy headlights. We have a 2008 Outback and the front headlight lenses are quite foggy.

    Ugh! I replaced the dash and when I go to turn on the headlights, they flash when turning them on but won't say on. And, while in the on position, the headlight indicator does not illuminate in the instrument cluster. I replaced the light switch on the steering column but the issue persists...

Wondering if this is a part of a bigger issue that other subaru fans know about? Electrical testing is being...

    Hello, I am a new Subaru owner. I just purchased a 2006 Outback a few days ago. I don't know anything about the vehicle but I am trying to learn as fast as I can. Upon my arrival back home I was notified that my OB had no tail lights but my brake lights were working just fine. Prior to this, I...

    Hi - I have a 2015 Automatic Limited that I purchased used in 2017. My interior lights go on and off a bit randomly. Have never been particularly concerned. UNTIL, I drove on highway for 3 hours. Stopped at a rest stop. Got back in car. Interior lights were running as it was starting to get...

    Hello everyone, My stock lights are about as bright as a dim candle. I was wondering if anyone has had experience with LED lights on their 06 outback. I am looking for recommendations. I am looking to convert the main beam, the high beam, and the fogs. Thanks
