It is most likely a burnt out bulb. Do some searching for replacing instrument panel / illumination bulbs for 03 - 05 forester. Those are some good "terms" to point you in the right direction. I was just checking out a youtube video to see what all is involved.. it is pretty extensive to get to the cluster. You have to take out all of the panels starting with the center console and moving up to the radio shroud and then the cluster shroud and then the cluster. Then I would just replace ALL the bulbs. But if you only have the one "D" light out, I wouldn't worry about it. Just my opinion. If you were missing an entire side, like the speedo, then yeah, I would replace them. That was the issue for the youtube video. I hope that helps. Let me know if what I provided is NOT the issue as it is always good to know what other issues might be present. Thanks and best regards,
