I just bought a 2000 Subaru Legacy Outback Wagon and I noticed, that night, that

alternator?? Something else???

Check to make sure you did not accidentally turn the instrument light level down. There is a wheel by the head light switch to adjust the light level.


Ta dah! Test also by turning headlights on/off, watching display. Then find the rocker switch FOR mentioned.

This generation, the dimmer is a ring on the headlight stalk,


Yeah...the twisty one.
