There's a harness that runs from the rear body into the hatch, through a rubber tube. These wires break with age and movement.

Remove the hatch brake light and verify that the unit is getting +12v when the brake pedal is pressed. If so, connect +12v + Ground to the brake light directly, and see if it works. If not, you have a ground issue (usually corrosion) the brake light. Look for the ground connection in the hatch harness.


Repairing the hatch harness is doable, and easier than replacing the whole harness.

chapmnfarm: your head lights use a "2" fuse system.
one for the left and one for the right.
The fuse box you are looking for is under the hood on the passenger's side. It is a black box roughly 8 inches long and 4-5 inches wide. When you remove the cover, you will see fuses and relays. What you are looking for is the section in the box which has a cluster of 7 fuses. 3 in one row and 4 in the other. On the outer parameter are two relays. The fuses you are interested in are located in the row of 4 fuses, with the two closest to the "L" shaped part of the box. Both of those should be 15 amp fuses.
The fuse below those should be a 20 amp which is the lighting switch and the one below it is a 15 amp which is for the interior lights and the clock.
Check your harness grounds in the engine compartment near the area you have the problem. There are ground wires which come out of the harness on both sides of the core support. The wires are black in color and have "EYES" crimped onto the ends of the wires. Both of them will probably be located about 4-6 inches below the upper tie bar on each side of the radiator. Odds are that the eyes will be large enough to pass a 6mm bolt through.
I hope what I have given you will resolve your problem. Lem me know,,good luck>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

DO NOT buy bulbs anywhere other than SUBARU as replacement. They are specifically long life bulbs. Yes, availlable in other brands in other stores and more cost efficient but not in the long run..

1997 Subaru Impreza Tail lights work but brake lights don't even though the Hatch brake light is working


Hi,
So, both sides are not working? Check for voltage @ the brake light bulb to see if you're getting power. Also, look in the fuses.

check out the online Subaru forums, too.

I just spent five hours replacing the passenger side bulb because I did not know to leave the spring alone. I then replaced the bulb and when I went to check the headlight, the drivers side blew out. 5 minutes job turned into five hours.

How do I change the brake lamp on my '06 tribeca? Can't find any access. Larry


There should be access from inside, right behing the light itself. Open the back hatch, and look to either side (bad bulb side) and see if there is a small "door" that you can access it. If not, and it's not externally accessable, than you may need to pull the inside panel side off get to it.

Poor electrical


Same problems. I'm willing to bet that Subaru outsourced their light manufacturing to China, seeing as how the quality of the bulbs are so poor.

I bought a 2006 Tribeca in late 2007 with 27K miles on it. Have about 47K miles on it now and have changed out both sets of the headlight bulbs twice. At present the side puddle light is out and I also need to replace one rear brake light and 1 rear running light. I've kept my last two cars (Nissan & Ford) for no less than 5 years a piece but, I've never had, or heard of so many crappy light bulb issues.

On one occasion, both headlights went out at the same time while returning home from the grocery store at dusk. I stopped at an Advance Auto parts to get bulbs and fix it in the lot but, quickly found out it's going to take a lot more work vs. previous cars I've owned and/or worked on. Not very safe and considerate Subaru!

While I'm sharing, I also had another hazardous issue come up recently. While driving back to VA from MI, the wiper blades ceased keeping the windshield clean. It was snowing a bit and the roads were wet and dirty. I stopped at an Advance, and at a Meijers, and was advised that they only carry the rear wiper blades for 2006, and would have to go to a Subaru Dealer to get the blades. Again, not very safe and considerate thinking on the part of our friends at Subaru.

I like the car but simple maintenance matters are way too complicated and unsafe.

Subaru tribeca 2006 i cannot turn on headlights there are 3 lights on each side of the car, i can turn on the 2 smaller lights but the main headlight only goes on when i turn on flash. any ideas? i bought...


Sounds like the low beam bulbs are burned out, I have heard of a lot of over seas Tribecas having head and tail light problems. I would definitely check those bulbs, that will the cheapest start.
