Customer Question
Key fob, puddle lamps...

Key fob, puddle lamps, I formation center and some lights are not working. 2011 Outback

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fob's battery?

Yes it is fine but lots of other stuff not working.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Outback yourself? What have you tried so far?

So far I just want to know which fuse to check. I have read there may be a relay. I can do fuse the deal will do other work.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nope all else is perfect.

Hello my name is***** am a Subaru tech. The fuse will most likely be in the vehicle on the drivers side. I would use a test light to check all fuses. You can do this without removing the fuses. Turn the key on and use the test light to probe the backside of the fuse. There will be two small holes on the fuse. Check for power on both sides of each fuse. If you only have power on one side of the fuse then you have a blown fuse. Start with the fuses in the interior fuse box. Then check the fuses under the hood. There is another fuse box on the drivers side under the hood.
