Parking Light, Fog light, Rego plate late. I want to take the parking light out first before getting to repco as it could be orange or it could just be clear (not stated in manual)

Hiya,

 

 

 

Most parking lights are little wedge style bulbs which just have a very warm colour so they appear orange. What sort of car is this?
The people at repco will be happy to help you take the bulbs out when there and then find the replacements then put them in for you.
Driving at day you shouldn't have an issue at all and the car will not be affected by those 3 bulbs missing.

 

Cheers

Thanks Coil. Yeah rang repco already, we got two bublbs one is orange one is clear, he said some models use the clear one which what ive seen online too blah.

 

Its on 05 Outback for the Mrs, her valentines present, Wof and new bulbs, FN romantic is the leaf :-).

 

Thanks I just didnt know if driving around without the bulbs would trip sensors or something. I know how to get them out, piece of piss.

If front park fog and plate lights have all stopped working then it could possibly be a blown fuse as these are all fed usually off the same fuse

You know outbacks/legacies well? Do you know which fuse number?

 

I considered a fuse and will be checking first obviously, but Im pretty sure the fog light went first. I almost never use them. Cant stand people driving around with fog lights on and nothing else in broad day light, especially in cheap new cars like a WRX.

Evidently the rego lights are on the same fuse as the parking light, so Ill check that one out.

Dash lights, front and rear park lights and number plate light are all on the same fuse. So if any of those are currently working, it won't have a blown fuse.

@TeaLeaf I have moved this topic to correct sub-forum. You keep posting in the wrong sub-forum, so from now on I will simply remove the thread instead of moving.

Generally Park lights, fog lights and number plate lights have pairs and he only needs 1 of each so that eliminates a fuse :)

You could just get 2 of the park light bulbs and replace both so you dont need to worry about colour :P

Thanks, by Dash light do you mean the speedometer and trip computer lights? No they are all going.

 

Also the other park lights are working along with the other fog light.

Haha good thinking. But I was just going to change them while i was there anyway. The park lights $4.50 a piece so Ill see how I go for time.

 

Yeah Im pretty darn sure its not a fuse as last time I looked at my fuses none were blown (but wasnt aware of the lights), i check her fuses periodically.

Yep, dash lights for your speedo etc.

 

Fog lights are on a separate fuse.

I recommend removing the Check Engine bulb while you're at it to guarantee no more engine maintenance will be required for the life of the vehicle.

Not sure about Subaru. Check the 10A fuses under the bonnet. It also sometimes feeds the radio

No, the accessory etc fuses are inside the vehicle.
