View Full Version : Bilge Light Stays On

My 2006 Outback is on my trailer and the bilge light won't go off. The bilge is not pumping out water....Turning the bilge on and off does nothing. Any ideas? I'm afraid its going to drain my battery! There is some standing water in the engine compartment. Any ideas? Thanks.

There is a float switch on your bilge pump, and it's likely stuck in the position that makes it think there is water in the bilge. If you can locate the pump, pull it out and make sure the float switch is free.

I had the other day. Bilge pump stuck in the float up position.
