I have a 2003 Subaru Forester. My speedometer has not worked in quite a while. Now and then the odometer cuts in and out. This morning my radio quit. Any idea what is going on?

Well, it is/should be electronic. I have read some weird things about the ground connector back behind the radio but I don't know if the dash gauges are tied into that or not. I know something in the tail lights are. However, don't get stuck on one thing - aka - the one thing I'm mentioning. But it's a start. You might try www.subaruforester.org and ask the guru's advice.. there are a ton of good people over there that should know.

Thanks!
