#11 of 30 Re: 2005 Impreza radio problem [moralea]
Jul 24, 2008 (4:56 am)
On your Impreza, is the power switch in the volume control knob? If so, it might be that control that's the problem. I have a 626 that has a similar problem, and it seems to be related to the power/volume knob. If I jiggle it, turn power on/off a few times, I can make it work and can hear the radio. Ift that's it, it's possible it's dirty and maybe spray cleaner (made for such purposes) could fix it. I haven't tried that yet, since my son drives it and he doesn't seem to be bothered by it.
#13 of 30 Parking Lights stopped working

Any ideas on this one I have 99 impreza and the parking lights front and back stopped working. I checked and replaced all the bulbs the fuses seem ok. Is there a hidden fuse or relay I should check.
I have been playing turning on and off the parking light switch sprayed the connections with contact clear. Help anything will be helpfull I dont want to replace the entire assembly.
All the other lights work fine.
#14 of 30 Door Lock Noises
Oct 25, 2008 (2:34 pm)
My 1996 AWD 2.2 Impreza has been making some odd door lock, I think, noises. After getting in the car, starting the engine and driving off, nosies like the door locks are being flipped occur from the passenger side door, but the lock level is not moving. This will happen sporadically and if I flip the door lock on the drivers side back and forth the nosies go away. Also, when the car is parked and not running, I have heard this noise also, again coming from the passenger side. Do I have an electrical gremlin and do I need to worry?
#15 of 30 Hazard lights won't shut off
Dec 26, 2008 (7:17 am)
First post on the forum. I have a 1999 Subura Impreza Outback. Recently, the hazard lights began to blink and the hazard light switch won't turn them off forcing me to disconnect the battery during long periods of not using the car. I had this problem many years ago. It began after some wonderful Walmart employees changed my oil (my first mistake). They couldn't fix it. It was also around the time I had a stereo installed so I took it back to car toys and the technician there fixed it. I don't remember what the original problem was but it was a simple fix (not a major electric issue). the technician said it was something the Walmart employees inadvertently did. I seem to remember he fiddled with something in the drivers seat (other than obviously the hazard switch).
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

I had that with my 98 Forester and a simple lock/unlock cycle with the keyless entry fob fixed it each time. It happened whenever I disconnected the battery.

I have a 1994 Subaru Impreza AWD. I am having an issue with both my radio and my tail lights. They would work fine for a while then i would hit the breaks and my radio and my tail lights would shut off. My fuzes are all good. i have replaced them all. My turn signals work fine and all. I have tried disconnecting the battery a few times and all. I am at the end of my rope about this and cannot figure out anything. Any help would be awesome! I am also having problems with the brakes. I have no brakes. I recently replaced the master cylinder and i dont think i bled the brakes properly. Are there any other ways to bleed the brakes with just one person? I need alot of help! LoL!

That sounds like a bad common ground connection for brake lights, tail lights and radio. I don't know where that ground point is located; perhaps someone here does.

You need a brake bleeder to do the job yourself.
I suggest bribing a friend with a few beers and pizza, and getting help.
My daughter started helping me when she was just 6 years old. If they can push the brake pedal, you can do it. Just make sure you top off frequently, else you end up with air in the brake lines (that's probably the case now).
#20 of 30 Door locks

My 2007 Impreza door locks won't work with the remote or in the car the locks will open fine. In addition the light for the key stays on all the time.
