In a 1998 Subaru outback the heater blower works but no warm air?

In Subarus the temp control for the heater does not control the coolant flow, just airflow past the heater core. If you get no heat, there is no coolant in the heater core -- either there is no coolant or it is not circulating.

How do i remove heater control panel on a 98 outback?

The heater control panel on a 1998 Outback is all one unit with the vents that are above it. To remove the heater control panel, pull off the fan knob. Then, with a flat screwdriver gently pop out the thin piece of plastic below the heater control. There are screws here. The heater control and the vent cover can then be taken out by using the screwdriver to pop the clips holding it on.

How do you install seat heater in a Subaru Outback?

I have not tried to install a seat heater. Assuming that you have a seat with heater that you wish to use, Subaru tends to not include the wiring unless that option was ordered from the factory. You will need to install all wiring up to the fuse panel.

Do 2001 Subaru Outbacks come equipped with a plug-in block heater?

Since they no longer make a 2001 Subaru Outback, it depends on whether yours was equipped with one. It was an option so if you are asking if every one had a block heater, the answer is "no".

How do you change the air conditioning bulb on the 1999 Subaru legacy outback?

The only bulb I can think of for an air conditioner is for the on/off indicator light. They use a special tiny tiny bulb only available through your Subaru dealer and you have to take the heater controls apart. This involves taking much of the console apart and the cables that come from the heater control tend to spring their clips loose and may cause the heater controls to stop working. If you can live with it not working that would be my advice. If you decide to change the bulb be prepared to spend at least an entire afternoon and keep the kids away if you don't want them to hear bad language.

Where is the block heater on 2008 Subaru Outback?

No mention of a block heater in the service manual. It appears that they install heaters on the left side rear of the engine. Of course this type of heater plugs in to household power so if you have one it should be fairly easy to find the cord/plug and trace it back to the heater.

Why Subaru legacy outback heater lights quit working?

There are 4 LED lights in the hearer control. One for the AC control light, One for the fan control and Two for the push buttons. To get at them the two screws for the cup holder need to be removed and the holder pulled out. The heater vent holder can be pulled out and the plug to the hazard you can removed - set this aside. Under the passenger side of the dash you can see the heater control cable which needs to be popped out of its holder and removed from the heater valve control. Four screws that hold the control can be removed and the wire harness removed. Heater control can now be removed. On the back side of the push buttons is an plastic cover which needs to be removed to get at the button lights, if you need to change the slide control light there is two screws on the underside that need to be removed. this allows the control arm to be removed slightly. You need to use needle noise pliers, it's a real pain. The AC button is removed forward not out the back and you can get at the bulb. You can get the LED bulbs at Subaru for a ridicules price of about 8 bucks (that Canadian). Why they burn out who knows. I tried the wreckers first but found the ones in that control were burnt out as well but I figured if I destroyed the heater control to find out what needed to be done it was worth it.

Is there a LED replacement available for the bulbs in a 1998 Subaru Outback seat heater control switches?

No. Unless you have a dremel tool, patience, some epoxy, and local (commercial) electronics parts dealer (not Radio Shack). Buy a switch off a wreck. It's way easier.

I think the concept is similar to a more basic car's turn knob. The heater retains the last heat setting used, you're merely switching the fan off. My 2008 does the same.

The most likely reason that the heater control won't change the air flow is that the cable that moves the diverter valve has broken and will need to be replaced.
