Please help, I need to get this issue taken care of for state inspection. I've already checked all the fuses under the steering column.
Thanks for any help.

Maybe some of the others could better tell you how to do it... Or if your not afraid to monkey with the wires try it out some.. Joe
Sorry I cant be a better help but I hope I pointed you in a helpful direction

Be very careful with Cole's advise as Subarus use a different wiring system (they ground the filament, not the common terminal, as American cars do)

Skip, you were right on. It was the switch. I called the local Subaru dealer and they wanted $280 for the part. So, I went to this little u-pull yard and got one for $5. I couldn't find a switch with the intermittent wipers but everything else was the same.
P.S. The problem with the front marker light was a corroded contact. Subarus must use different bulbs than other cars. I replaced the LF light (#67 at Walmart) and its the exact same bulb but it is much dimmer than the other side. I don't know why but I remember having a similar problem with my SVX.
