    Boost gauge light wont turn on any ideas?

    When I turn on my lights all the way my turbo timer light wont turn on. Any ideas? Its a stock turbo timer that came with the car when it was bought straight from the factory.

    Subaru's don't come with turbo timers.

    Is this what you're talking about?

    This is a boost gauge.

    Edit:
    What year is the car?
    Did you buy it new or second hand?
    Did the light ever work?

    Its a 2002 bug eye. I bought it 2nd hand I am now the second own the car has about 136,000 miles. Im not exactly sure why the boost gauge light wont turn on. The original owner said he bought it with the car when he bought it brand new. They asked him if he wanted it and they tossed that in with the car brand new. The light did work only once the day I bought the car around night time it worked but ever since it didnt turn on.

    It could be that you need to replace the light bulb.
    It's also possible there is a short somewhere, but with that many miles on the car I suspect light bulb first.

    Here's how to open the gauge without removing the steering column.

    I don't know what size the bulb is. You might want to call your local Subaru dealer parts department or https://www.subarugenuineparts.com/
