Speedometer and Tach lights out... not the bulb?

Asked by Jan 16, 2016 at 08:45 PM about the 2003 Subaru Outback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Been driving in the dark for months now.. finally replaced the bulbs in the dash.  A video I was watching said I could use 168's and I figured they wouldn't blind me.  It also said 194's would work. Got the 168's in but still no lights. What else might it be?

Dash light fuse, dash light switch, dash light dimmer, wiring.

Ah, I feel pretty dumb. I've been looking for the dimmer switch on it for so long and never found it.. Googled that pretty quick and tada! Glorious, bright lights that probably had fine bulbs to begin with... Oh well, problem solved and something new learned. Thanks for your help!

Yup! When ALL lights are out it's the dimmer. Individual bulbs are neither of the models you stated, btw, but tinier green ones.
