2018 Forester Headlight Indicator

10

Asked by mszekely Dec 17, 2019 at 04:58 PM about the 2018 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium Black Edition

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2018 Forester has Auto Headlights and the Headlight Indicator Light
Stopped working after 18 months.   I took the car the the dealer and was
told that my model does not come equipped with the indicator.  I saw the
light come on for over 18 months and know it it not true but how do I prove
it to the dealer.  I suspect that when they looked at another 2018 Model to
see if the light worked they looked a model without Auto Headlights.

"Headlight indicator light (if equipped)
This indicator light illuminates under the following conditions:
When the light switch is turned to the following positions:
When the light control switch is in the “AUTO” position and the headlights
illuminate automatically."

I would complain directly to SOA. I think your dealer is blowing you off because they don't want to mess with your problem.

I forgot to mention that the lights do come on in the dark or if you cover the sensor on the dash. The :Headlights On" indicator light does not come on when the headlights come on automatically or if the light switch is turned to the on position.
