Question about 1999 Subaru Impreza

1999 subaru impreza brake light not working but tail light works

The back left brake light won't work, I have replaced the bulb. The hatch brake light and right one work fine however. It works as a nighttime running tail light when I turn the headlamps on, but never turns on when I hit the brakes. I suspect bad wiring. Any ideas?

Look for a poor ground on the LH light assembly. You'll need to remove the assembly to do this.

Hi,
So, both sides are not working? Check for voltage @ the brake light bulb to see if you're getting power. Also, look in the fuses.

check out the online Subaru forums, too.

My marker lights on my 2008 Subaru impreza do not work .


The first step is to verify that the tail light bulbs are not burned out. I Next step is check
a) if you get+12v on the bulb, and
b) check for poor grounds to rear light cluster.

There is a fuse for parking lights. If all this check out then trace the wiring harness under the carpet from the driver seat to the rear for rust/water damage.

Brake lights won't work on 93 Subaru impreza. Fuse ok, bulbs ok. Brake light switch replaced 1 yr ago


Mr. Williams since you tried with fuse,bulbs and brake light switch with no success,why you do not try to check your circuit by using a tester and see whether you have any broken wire or bad earth?

Brake and taillights not working...I had a towing package on my 2002 Impreza, the trunk was leaking and the control unit for the trailer got flooded and shorted. Now my brake and taillights are not...


I think this is a mechanical problem ... when you brake it refuse to send a signal to the tail lights.
I suggest that you need to check the terminal block connection between them.

Tail lights dont work


Replace the bulbs.
The bulbs will have two seperate elements in it which is why the brake light works.

Take the bulbs out and you will see the seperate elements.

Subaru, no tail lights brake lights work fine


Check for power at the lights. If there is power then it's probably a bad ground. If not then you need to start checking the wiring harness for breaks or loose connection. Good luck, Neil W.
