Question things that are NOT working on my WRX

1) passenger side EDM headlight. Just replaced the H1 bulbs and then tried the associated fuses, no luck. The drl still works though.
2) cruise control
3) horn

are these things related or am I just having bad luck Any suggestions? thanks

I suggest you order the factory service manual that covers the wiring for the car. You will more than pay for the cost of it by using it to help you fix just these problems.

cruise control/horn probably means the 'rotor' in your steering wheel is busted. I recently had the same problem and just replaced it with a sparco steering wheel....LOL. I still need to re-wire the horn and CC, but the 'rotor' is very expensive from the dealer. I've been told $300.


for those of you with headlight issues, did you check the relays? engine bay fuse box has the headlight relays.
