The clock works, correct? It is just not illuminating when your headlights are turned on? If this is the case then it is most likely that you have 2 burned out bulbs. The forester clock bulb is Sylvania bulb part #2723

Hope that helps! I have a bunch of clock related info on my website www.autoclockrepair.com. Let me know if I can be of assistance.

2004 forester dome light has no power

03 and 05 have fuse in different place not sure which one applies to you. Above is 03 and 05 fuse box diagram.
The dome light comes on when you open car door. I have had cars where the door switch was bad and would not turn light on. If your dome light has a switch on the dome light then you should have power to switch. If not and the fuses are good then it seems it would have to be a problem with wires or switches.

My clock light on my 2004 Subaru Forester won't light anymore. The dome light works so I know its not a fuse.


Is this for a 1999 Forester or for a 2004 forester, the title lists both years. If it is a 1999 model then the problem most likely resides within the clock itself. Unfortunately, many clocks of this vintage go bad over time. I offer a reasonable repair service and many clock removal instruction sheets at www.autoclockrepair.com
I'd be happy to assist.

My 2001 subaru forester clock works intermitently. Sometimes the numerals are very dim and other times are not there.Could this be a low voltage/bad grounding problem?


Sounds like your clock is dying. This is typically an issue with the clock itself. This is very common with many vehicles, CR-Vs, Pathfinders, 4runners, etc. The good news is that it can be repaired for a reasonable rate, check out www.autoclockrepair.com

99 Forrester dome light and clock won't work...fuses are good


Did you check the underhood fuse #30, 15amp which controls illumination and the clock? It appears as though there are 2 fuses which control the clock, one under hood and one in the cabin (#9).

2004 Subaru Forester Dash Lights out. My speedometer and tachometer dash lights are out. Only the fuel/engine temp lights are still working. I need a flashlight to see my speed at night.


Take a look at your dome like switch to see if it can dim the overhead light any.If it can't, I would start there. If that checks out, then check all connecters going to the instrument panel to see if any of them are loose.

2003 subaru forester clock stopped lighting. Can't find a description for a designated fuse.


Go to www.subaruforester,org and do a search for clock. This is a chronic problem but if you're handy with a soldering gun you can fix it yourself.
