You should check the inhibitor switch mounted on the transmission. The cable is attached to it from the shifter. It may be out of "alignment" and need to be adjusted. It would be best to have a Subaru tech do this as you have to crawl underneath the vehcile to fix. You should check that first. The lights may be coming on, but not when the gear selector is in "R".

ok first of all check all the fuses that are related to the brake lights. the fuse box may be in side under the dash or under the hood. check those let us know if that fixed the problem.

There is no such thing as a 1995 subaru outback, the outback package was not offered on a subaru legacy until 1996, you either have a 1996 subaru outback, or you have a 1995 subaru Legacy L or LSI wagon. Both will be covered in most guide books you can pick up at your local autoparts store.

Why would running lights and lower brake lights and parking lights on Subaru Impreza Outback not work when headlights and hazards and turn lights and upper brake lights do?

I have run into the same thing with this kind of car. On the steering column at the top they have a switch that will turn the running lights on or turn them off. check the switch you may have hit it and turn it on.
