On my 08 hatch, I have been having a weird issue. When I use the blinker it starts slow then speeds up blinking like a light bulb is out, but no bulbs are out, and when I have the headlights on they just blink very fast, anybody else have any issues like this or know what to do?

I had an old car that did something similar. Eventually they stopped working. It sounds like something with the turn signal relay, however as a new Subaru owner I could be (and for your sake I'm hoping) wrong. I had to replace the turn signal relay transistor on my old car, which Hyundai very nicely had integrated into the cars BCM... at least I learned how to use a soldering gun I suppose... but it was either that or buy a new $1000 BCM.

I doubt it has anything to do with the bulbs, but you could check the connections anyway. If the turn signal relay is its own entity on the Subaru I'd suggest putting a new one (or at least testing another one if you have a friend with a Subaru) in. If it's integrated into a damn motherboard... uh... well... sorry.

This is a known problem. Replace the front bulb and make sure that there is some slack in the wiring harness at the bulb socket. If the harness is pulling on the socket then the bulb won't seat properly.
