1999 Subaru Outback 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 110540 miles
I was hit on the right hand side and after $6800 (thank you State Farm Insurance) in bodywork my 1999 Outback is back and running fine except for some issues with lights.
Here are the problems:
- As I am driving, if I press on the brake pedal the headlights dim. This also happens if I press the window buttons. This did not happen before the accident. It does not seem to be anywhere as bad if I shut the engine off and try the same thing on battery power.
- It looks like as I am driving the headlights will flicker for half a second and I can swear I hear a slight clicking sound from under the dashboard when it happens.
- All of a sudden the lights on the gear shifter have gone out. Some of the other lights like the seat heater and a few others on the dashboard have gone out over the last few years.
I'm not a car guy, but after doing some research online it sounds like I may have an Alternator or Illumination Control problem. Some sites suggest a battery problem but that does not sound right?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
