HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Your first expert gave you the location of the fuse and relay. If you have checked these and they are good, then I need to last 8 of the vin number to pull the schematics to see where else the issue may lie

I had very little time to deal with this today, but I noticed that 1 of the headlights is burnt out, tomorrow I will deal with my car. I was woundering if the lights are parred and need to be both working together. Skip
Subaru Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 28 days ago

Because they are on separate fuses, this means that they are not paired and if one low beam light burns out, it will not affect the other low beam
