Customer Question

2005 subaru outback - cleaned inside today - 1st time in a loge time - daughters car .. I turned it off but both the amber signal lights and tail lights stay on no matter what I turn off
JA: Have you checked the bulbs? Have you checked the connection?
Customer: the bulbs are all on so they work - what connection?
JA: Are you fixing your Outback yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: it's too late to take to my guy today so yes trying to figure out - never happened before it is a short cause by an open door? none are open. The hood would not close tightly enough so I put wd40 on the latch and it worked - is this some kind of safety feature or a short of some kind
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: nope

Hello I will help

There is a switch on top of the steering column just behind the steering wheel. Cycle that switch and the lights will go out.
