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).

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.

Must be a short somewhere.
First try disconnecting the battery, see if that resets it.
Maybe then search for "single point ground", a fix for electrical issues like yours.

#26 of 30 About to purchase a 2007 Subaru Impreza
Aug 01, 2010 (7:53 pm)
I am about to buy a 2007 Subaru Impreza. It's a hatchback and standard. It's a reconditioned car with a mileage of 25000. Reading these reviews, I have realised that people have had many problems with subarus even new ones. I was thinking that i would a few years before having any problems. Unlike you guys, I WOULD BE BUYING THIS CAR WITHOUT A LEASE. I do not have the option of taking it back. Additionally, it costs US 24000 here. I just like the look of the car but am not interested in the speed nor grip, etc. i don't plan to be driving fast and I live in a tropical country so no snow. i am a novice when it comes to cars so i am seeking some advice and you all know more about subarus than i do. Would you advise me to purchase it still or not?
