I recently bought this 2002 Subaru outback station wagon, but I can't figure out how at night to get the floor gearshift and dashboard illuminated.

Asked by Oct 31, 2012 at 05:08 PM about the 2002 Subaru Outback Base Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Can you suggest a solution or recommend a place in the Rockville-Kensington-Potomac-Bethesda area
that could evaluate this and some other minor problems.

There should be a dimmer switch to the left of the steering wheel. if you tried that, check the fuses.

If the car is an automatic the gear shift on the on the floor does not light up you have to use the dash for the gearshift position, it is directly ion front of you over the steering wheel )
