#2 of 30 Parking lights that will NOT turn off
Jan 21, 2007 (6:28 am)
We pick up the car from dealer after a routine service and upon entering our garage and stopping the car the parking lights did not go off in spite turing off and on the headlight switch on the turn indicator.

Check the top of the steering column -- there's a parking light switch there that's frequently accidentally turned on at car washes, etc.
Bet that's the answer. It's a minor thing, but I can't believe Subaru hasn't reengineered the switch after all these years.
#4 of 30 Pushbutton switch under Dash

I'm looking at a used Impreza (99) and there was a small pushbutton switch hanging from under the left side of the dash. I know the seller personally and they are not the type to do any mods. Is this some sort of reset button?

This might be the alarm reset button, though usually that button is attached to the left side under the dash. If so, it would typically be used only in the event of a dead, disconnected, or replaced battery.

Did you replace the fuse? Some burned fuses don't look burned.
#9 of 30 Subaru Impreza 2008 headlights
Jun 23, 2008 (5:48 am)
The headlights on my new Impreza 2.5i are dim in comparison to my old Acura Integra. Subaru dealer says they are fine. Consumer Reports says they are poor. What can I do to get better headlights?
#10 of 30 2005 Impreza radio problem
Jul 23, 2008 (10:21 pm)
I am not a car savvy person and I took my car into a garage today and after looking at my problem, they suggested I google to find an answer. The problem: A couple of weeks ago my radio started coming on only sporadically, the dash part would (and still does) light up, I can change stations, it looks like it is on but there is no sound. However most of the time it worked just fine and this problem would only happen every few days. Now it has stopped working at all while I am driving but if I stop the car and have the electricals running off the battery, it works great. Which is not much comfort on a long trip. Any ideas that I can suggest to an auto repair to get it fixed?
