i bought a 02 outback and after a day the brights stay on all the time.  I checked all the fuses and relays, and even took apart the turn signal to see if I could tell if it was something mechanical in there.  I believe this is what made the abs light come on, or they are related.  the seller isn't responding so I am guess he know there was something doggy about the car. 

 

I didn't want to just start swapping out parts.  Is there a particular wire set I should look at or give up and take to a mechanic?

 

thanks for your help in advance.

'Brights'?

If you mean that the Parking Lights are always on, then there's a switch on top of the dash just forward of the steering wheel.

Turn it off, and cover the switch with some electrical tape, and you'll never have the same problem again.

this may seem basic but, did you push the light stalk forward?

 

abs can often be the first sign of electrical problems, test the battery and alternator output.

 

of course, wheel sensors and other issues could be present.
