:) First, I wanted to say hello and thank you for the opportunity to ask a question. My husband and I own a 98 forester, on which he cleaned the negative terminal on the battery. Upon doing this, the hazard lights would not go off, but they were not turned on. He checked the fuses, which were all good. Any other suggestions? Thanks for the time. Oh, by the way, I love my forester, it is a great car. I told my husband that next time if it is not broken, do not fix it.

In hope you mean what are some times called
"Parking Lights"

Check the small rocker switch on the top
of the steering column.

I believe you may find it has been inadvertantly switched.
Maybe while cleaning there or other.

Since the "head lights" are switched off with the key.

This affords a way to tun on lights when parked.

Hope this helps.

Skip,
I believe this is part of the Code Alarm System:
Battery failed and lights flashing?
Parking lights will flash when the vehicle's battery is disconnected and reconnected.
To stop lights from flashing, either:
Press remote transmitter “UNLOCK” button once OR turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position and press programming button for one second (see below).
The vehicle interior (courtesy) light and door open warning light (DOOR AJAR indicator) will then illuminate for 60 seconds when the ignition is turned off, or until the doors are locked with the remote transmitter. Yes, the dashboard instrument panel lights will flash when the parking lights flash.


The rest of the alarm info is at link:

Good luck and welcome Pickles.
