2001 Forester, It is my wife's car and while driving it the other night noticed that the lights around the heater controls were not on. also I tried the illumination dimmer thinking it might be turned down and it was not working as it did not dim the spedo cluster. The fuse is ok and the other lights on the switches are illuminated. any ideas???

Yes those lights blow out on just about every soob it seems from that era. There's a thread somewhere about how to replace them with clear LED's I think that won't burn out like taht again, or with a different style bulb from Radio Shack. For a long time I just thought Subaru didn't put lights in the heater controls since I never saw them work on any of my soobs, until I saw a thread about replacing the bulbs.
