I was poking around under the headliner looking for the power feeds for the auto dim mirror so I can instally my aftermarket one.

 

I found them, I tested them, and dead circuit. Put the car back together and noticed something odd. The vanity mirrors stopped working along with the heated seats. Ok I blew a fuse. I looked at the FB fuses, and the were fine. The SB fuses (under the hood) arent well marked. The way that wiring diagrams are now done in Hayes (almost useless) and the FSM (annoying) are no help. All I have lost are those two things, everything else works, but I can't swear for the rear power outlet.

 

Where should I be looking.

Never mind. My 2005 outback was built in 2004, so ANNOYINGLY it has a 2004 fuseblock. No wonder the fuse block sticker, the 2005 FSM and the haynes manual were all wrong!  Only the owners manual was correct on which fuse was blown.

 

Anyone have a 2004 FSM around? All I need is the electrical section

Oh man... that's a great "gotcha".

My 2005 Outback is probably similarly "charming" then. I'll have to watch out for that.

Blu2 was built 7/04 but he is a 2005. 

 

I hate transition years.
