I have a 1996 Legacy Outback, 2.5L
Today these little lights started to flash at the front and back of the car. They are not the hazards or the turn signals. Mabye runnning lights and the lowbeam break lights, I dont know. They are beside the turn signals. They flash for 60 seconds and then stop for about 7 seconds, then start again. Anyone have a clue what it might be?

DID YOU BUY the car new? someone might have installed custom show strobes, that is what it sounds like.

Sounds like the keyless entry/alarm system flashing the parking lights. Did you recently work on the car or disconnect the battery? This will set off the alarm. If you had a siren installed, it would be going off as well.

Check under the hood on the front radiator support and on the battery cables. There you should find yellow stickers describing how to reset the system.

To reset, either press the UNLOCK button on your keyless remote fob, or turn the car's ignition to the ON postition (without starting the car) and press the keyless module programming button found in a bundle of wires up under the dashboard above the driver's feet.
