the plug some how got melted and has a short in it. the light doesn't work unless i tap on it. i was gonna cut the plug off another car and connect it to ours. what other years and kinds of subaru's have the same plug. what would be the best way to connect it.

Seems to be a popular complant for 95-96 models right now, they all seem to be experiencing the plugs getting older and melting.

You can put on an aftermarket plug, they come with a several inches of new wire on them. For saftey and good connection cut off the old plug then splice and solder the wires together and use electrical heat shrinking material to seal the connections.

There was a couple of posts in the last week about this.
