Question about 1996 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

My subaru legacy 96 running tail lights don't work. The brake lights turn on, as well as the reverse lights, but the running lights are gone. The fuses are all good, and I think it might be the relay, but I don't know which one to check, or where it is. Is there something else that could be the problem?

If 20A FUSE 23 in the main fuse box and 20A FUSE 5 in the fuse & relay box are OK, the tail & illumination relay in the fuse & relay box or the combination switch may be at fault.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: what causes pulsating brakes in a 96 subaru

Assuming you are not referring to the pulsation experienced when the anti-lock braking system engages, you should replace the rotors and the pads while you are at it. The days of turning or resurfacing rotors are over. They are cheap.

Side lamps and tail lights not working 2000 subaru legacy


You do know that on Subaru's there is a switch on the steering collum that runs the running lights? If that's off the mark, then check your fuses. The one you will be looking for is marked "tail" in the fuse box.

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.

These assorted problems usually come from the control modules, in this case the transmission control module (TCM)
First, reset al ECM' by removing the battery negative terminal for a minute or so then re-fit it. This reset should cure all your problems. If not I shall consult my TSB's after you post the results of the reset.

I need to replace right brake light bulb in a 1991 Subaru Legacy


If this is a sedan, open the trunk and remove the bulb bracket for the burned out lamp from the rear of the tail light assembly by twisting it about 1/8 turn and then pulling it out. Now you can change the bayonet base lamp by pressing it slightly into the socket and turning it ccw just a small angle and the bulb will sping out. Installation is the reverse.

If this is a wagon, open the rear hatch, and behind the rear light assembly is a louvered plastic grate. Remove the grate by pushing the two plastic latch tabs toward the center of the grate and swing the grate out etc. Now remove the bulb bracket for the burned out lamp from the rear of the tail light assembly by twisting it about 1/8 turn and then pulling it out. Now you can change the bayonet base lamp by pressing it slightly into the socket and turning it ccw just a small angle and the bulb will sping out. Installation is the reverse.
