Not resolved

About 3 years into owning this '99 Forester, the illumination for my gear shifting column between the front seats went out. Cost to repair was prohibitive, so I leaned to deal with it. About 2 years ago, the LED clock above the mirror went out. Cost to repair $180, so I decided to live without a clock. Last Friday, the LED that illuminates the gas gauge, speedometer and odometer went out. Now I have to periodically turn on the cabin light to see how fast I'm driving, how much gasoline I have and how many miles I've driven. What's next?

This is ridiculous!

All the lights you mentioned are not LEDs but just small light bubs which can be replaced yourself! I have replaced them on my own Forester. ALL light bulbs eventually burn out and you're talking about a 1999 model year.

The LED clock normally lasts for many years. Mine seemed to quit also, but then I pushed harder on the left-hand button and it came back on. Over time, dirt, moisture, and corrosion occurs under the button...just push hard on it and it will come back on.

If you have a 1999 car in 2008 and those are the worst things you can complain about, you got a GREAT car!
