    On top of the steering column there is a switch in front of the gauge cluster. Flip that switch.

    I think just about everyone of us here has been through the "why won't my lights turn off" ordeal.

    Happened to me too, I even pulled the fuses to make them stop burning. I read the manual and found the sneaky little button. It's a Subaru right of passage.

    Yup, join the club. For me, It was the parking lights, and figuring out how to dim an STI cluster (it's not done with the turn signal stalk, lol). Subarus have their quirks!

    Never argue with idiots. They'll drag you to their level and beat you with experience.
