Hello everyone,

my is tom i am new to subarus I just bought a 1996 suburu
legacy outback in very good condition body is mint you can tell this car was taken care of.

well my question is at night when i turn on the lights my heater controls and my shifter selector does not light up could this be a fuse because all the instrument panel lights are on except heater controls and shifter selector. I know this isnt that big of a deal but if it an easy fix I would like to know i like everything working.

it has a automatic tranny, 2.5 engine, and it has 168,000 miles on it. if you need anymore info just let me know.

sincerely yours

Commuter is right, the link in the sticky was exactly what I used to fix my backlights.
