how do i replace dash lights on an 01 subaru outback ? Answered

my light went out behind my odometer on my subaru , it is the only light that is out. it is digital . or is there a seperate fuse for that ? But all the other lights are ok. Is there a way of replacing just the bulb itself ?

Chances are its a blown fuse, so check the fuse box first. I have done A LOT of work on cars, and even though I would dismantle a dashboard and instrument panel to replace a bulb, I wouldn't do it unless I knew that was problem.

So talk to a Subaru dealer or a repair shop (if its not a fuse) and ask for a quote to check the electrical. They can usually figure out the problem faster than you will, and possibly save you a lot of hassle.

You're not obligated to get the work done by the diagnostician, so take the information they give you and proceed from there with any repairs you feel you can accomplish on your own.
