My ABS relay is stuck on. Where is the ABS relay located on a 1996 Legacy L wagon? I see four relays in the external relay box, but they are all marked A/C on the cover. Thanks!

Thanks for the help. I'm not home, so I've been trying to explain to my teenage son how to replace it over the phone. It's hard when the car is not right in front of me. I have him sending me a picture so I can show it to him. Does it just pull off or is there a cover over it?

Thanks again,

has he tried tapping on it. or pull the fuse, (dangerous driving for young drivers but not so much for us old guys.) it may not be 'stuck' when he puts the fuse back in. i'd try tapping first

my 95 used to do this occasionally.

thanks everyone, I had a battery drain flat because of this.. my ABS was actived today and arriving at home I did not know the ABS pump was still running with the car off.. I only found out later when the car was dead.. I did get a new battery but the pump started up again as soon as I connected the battery.

So long story short what part do I need from SubaruParts.com?

Relay, all models, motor


Relay, all models, valve

Or do I need both?
