Default Blew my fuse?

I searched.

MY05 Sti

Trunk light not working. After changing bulb realized no power. Can't find a blown fuse in both coin tray and under hood boxes. Does any one now if there is another fuse location for the trunk light are what fuse it would be? Any help appreciated.

Does the "trunk ajar" light come on with it closed? If it does the trunk pin is bad/not hitting right. I'd bet something else wouldn't work if there were a bad fuse. Or they tied the trunk pin in with the door pins in '05... and you have the dome light switched to off permanantly, instead of door. That'd be a weird thing for a subaru sedan to do though.

So. If you won't help us help you. I'll hold your hand a little tighter.

When I said "I'd bet something else wouldn't work if there were a bad fuse." You could have interpreted that as:

Does your domelight work?

What time is on your clock?

Are the 05 model subarus equiped with an owner's manual?

And when I said "If it does the trunk pin is bad/not hitting right.." meaning look into the idea that the trunk pin doesn't work. If it isn't a fuse, your trunk pin doesn't send a ground. Subaru mounted a test light for that right on your instrument cluster.

Instead you "bump" and dismiss any thought of actually looking at it youself? Trying even the simplest form of deductive reasoning/trouble shooting? I got cheesed enough to look at the owners manual (which doesn't mention 'trunk light' but...), I took an educated guess, and when I went to the car, the first fuse I pulled turned off my trunk light. It turned off a few other things too. I'd tell you where the fuse is but I think you need to take the car to the dealership. They get paid to deal with whiners.

FREE BUMP!

YES TRUNK LIGHT NOT LISTED. BEFORE POSTING I PULLED ALL FUSES IN COIN TRAY AND UNDER HOOD BOXES. I DID NOT SEE ANY THAT INDICATE THEY HAD BLOWN.

And when I said "If it does the trunk pin is bad/not hitting right.." meaning look into the idea that the trunk pin doesn't work. If it isn't a fuse, your trunk pin doesn't send a ground. Subaru mounted a test light for that right on your instrument cluster.

NOT SURE ON THIS, NEVER SAW A LIGHT ON THE INSTURMENT CLUSTER INDICATING THE TRUNK WAS OPEN. LIGHT WORKED ONE DAY DIDN"T THE NEXT. I HAVE LOOKED AT THE TRUNK PIN AND IT APPEARS UNDAMAGED.

SORRY I CHEESED YOU DIDNT MEAN TOO, I WAS JUST TRYING TO GET A QUICK ANSWER FROM SOMEONE WHO KNEW

Then it isn't a fuse. It is another problem. If the fuse were out, the clock and dome light would be too. Either a broken feed from the front to the back of the car, or the trunk pin is unplugged at some point.

Pull the plastic trim out from around the latch in the trunk (assuming an 06 is put together like an 04 back there) and look for a loose wire. There is only one power option back there, except for the license plate wire fed through the body a bit lower in the trunk.

Otherwise meter the lightbulb. One side should be ground (from the pin) and the other 12v (from fuse 12 (IIRC) under the hood. The one closest to the rear driver's side of the fuse box... but I think that's been moved in the '06 as well) One of those is missing from the equation.

See how easy it is when we share?

Default body integrated module asso. with trunk light?

I have the same problem. It shorted while I was working on something else. The bulb is fine, all my fuses are fine, and everything else works fine. There is no current on the voltmeter. I don't know if it has something to do with the body integrated module, but my inside dome light works fine. How do I check if my body integrated module is working ok?

The OEM shop manual has a diagnostic tree. At the least, buy or download the Wiring volume (the paper copy should only cost $20-30); the diagnostic section for the lighting will be in the Body or Chassis volume, I think.
techinfo.subaru.com is the download website.
