if you are saying that the dash lights go dim and bright while driving it could be a loose connection of the wiring harness behind the speedo nacal.

Check the park brake switch and the fluid level in the brake master cylinder, both will cause the light to flash.

Battery and brake warning lights flash simaltaneously, but intermittently. What does this indicate?


Sounds like a short on a abs or emergency brake sensor since that would cause the brake light to be triggered also cause a sudden drop in voltage which would trigger the battery light could also be a bad ground at the battery

I just changed the starter, disconnected battery


Under dash by your left knee is a 4"x4" box. It has a small wire lead with a button on the end. Turn ignition on and push button. Resets the alarm. THis will stop your lights from flashing. Have a great day.

98 Subaru Legacy Outback While driving, lights repeatedly dimmed then brightened, along with same on instrument panel, followed eventually by loss of power...however, car started no problem this morning?...


Sounds like a charging problem. I would have alternator checked at local parts store. Also need to inspect the grounds. Both motor and body grounds. Most usually it is the charging system that is not working properly that makes the lights unstable then after it drains the battery it will not have enough power to operate the motor. Hope this helps and gets your Subbie up and going.

'98 subaru legacy-lights dimmed then brightened repeatedly, along with instrument panel, eventually power decreased...any thoughts? Alternator?


yes my first thought was alternator but to be sure you should take it to a major auto parts store and they have those diagnostic testers and they can scan your codes and see if thier is any problems that is the most accurate way of knowing. I believe this service is free as well. Hope this help thanks and good day
