Working on a 1995 Subaru Legacy. When I would step on the brakes the headlights would dim and the radio die for a second. When I pull the brake light fuse the problem goes away. There are a total of 8 brake lights so one by one I took them out , cleaned the sockets and replaced 2 bulbs that were corroded pretty bad. Now I’m down to the headlights flickering when I step on the brakes. I can remove the 4 upper mt lights and 2 of the lights in the hatch lid so there are only 2 left and the problem goes away. If I put any bulbs back in the flickering starts again. I did notice when I step on the brakes I can hear what sounds like a relay closing in the ecm which is under the radio. I think that’s the ecm. It seems like with that many bulbs they would have a relay to carry the load but I didn’t see any thing on the wiring diagram. Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks, Ray Thomas
