the first thing you can always do is check your fuses. there might a blown fuse that need replacement. otherwise you need to be familiar with the electrical wiring on your car. if not then the best thing would be to get it checked by a mechanic. you can always call the Subaru dealer and ask for the mechanic and ask for wiring diagram or for him/her to pinpoint the wire connection of the speedometer with power source.

chances are its the speed sensor mine just went on my 98 impressa
