Default 2006 WRX: No Horn, Clock, Compass, Radio, Hazards, or Interior Lights

I bought my Ď06 WRX not long ago and only discovered these electrical issues after I had driven off. The horn, clock, radio, hazards, and interior lights do not work or give any sign of working.

Iíve already checked the fuses and tried swapping the relay for the horn just so see if I can get that bit working but I wound up with nothing.

Hoping somebody whoís had this problem before can give me some insight!

Sounds like the backup fuse is missing.

IMO it sounds like a bad clock spring. Please do yourself a favor before jumping off the deep end with my suggestion. Purchase a logic probe to test all fuses and ground circuits.

clockspring shouldn't impact interior lights, radio, clock, or hazards.

MB fuse #2 powers the clock, radio (keep alive), interior lights, and other stuff. I'd double-check that it's good.

Iím sorry to ask, but which fuse is considered MB #2? Iím guessing MB is referring to the main box in the engine bay but the diagram Iím looking at is saying itís linked to the radiator cooling fan

Not the highlighted one, but the one below it, No. 2.

If your diagram says that's for the radiator fan, either your diagram or the FSM is wrong.

True, hence the Logic Probe suggestion to test ALL fuses as first order of business. Before blurting out clock spring I should have asked if his Cruise works.

It was the diagram that was wrong. That fuse is all good

AH.

Pull the driver's side fender liner and check for harness damage. A former co-worker bought an 06ish WRX that had been dropped on its nuts and the idiot previous owner wore a hole through the harness.

It's something to check for.

Did you verify that fuse #2 has power getting to it? If not you need to do that. Use the small test points on top of each side of the fuse to check for power. If that is okay then you need to check the wiring in the dash fuse panel. The wiring for those loads you mentioned passes though that fuse panel. Check the connectors on each side of the panel and make sure they are making good connection. The wire color is blue/red and that wire goes into the dash fuse panel via a brown 9 pin connector. It goes out of the panel via a 7 pin gray connector. Make sure the blue/red wire has power on it at the gray connector.
