  1. Hi I have a Subaru Brat, the odometer reads 76540.3>4 there is no one hundred thousandth place, is the a way to tell if it has hit 100,000?
  2. Hi All, On a recently-acquired 2001 Outback Wagon, I got into the various buttons, the HVAC control and instrument cluster to replace all of the burned out bulbs. So that's all good now and the illumination brightness ring on the turn signal lever works fine. I have good bulbs behind the LCD odometer and clock readouts. But still those displays don't get lit. If I take the bulbs out and shine light through the hole, that light is able to backlight each display just fine. I already got a junkyard illumination control module (mounts behind the stereo on passenger side, part number 83023AE01A) and swapped it in with no change to the problem. In the Factory Service Manual "Wiring System" section for "Combination Meter", it shows that the odometer and clock backlight bulbs are driven by a block labeled "Dimmer Circuit" that gets fed from the same brightness controlled power circuit that drives the other illumination bulbs. Does anyone know why the odometer and clock backlight bulbs are treated "specially" rather than just being driven from the very same brightness-controlled voltage that comes in from the illum controller? I suppose something is burned out in that "Dimmer Circuit" that lives somewhere in the instrument cluster assembly. I'm posting in case someone else has been through this problem and can give me further info. Thanks! Bry
  3. I'm looking at a mint condition Subaru Outback and usually the japanese imports can be verified. Or at least you can verify the odometer at export time and make a sensible evaluation whether it has been tampered with or not. But i found a mint condish 2005 LL bean condition that seem to have no online records. So is there a way to manually inspect the car and verify mileage, are the odometer checks electronically stored in the vehicle? I fear once it's been dialed back there is no history in the car, am i correct?
