Forester MBS Stabilizer Jacks Inoperative

When new, our stabilizers were inoperative and fixed by replacing the switch assembly under warranty.

We are on the road and both stabilizer jacks became inoperative at the same time, wouldn't retract after being deployed the previous night when I probably overloaded the system because I couldn't hear them due to the AC running.

I checked under the sink at the switch and saw nothing amiss. The fuse panel above the fridge does not have a fuse for the jacks and everything else electrical is working normally.

Is there a fuse elsewhere in the system, or do you have other suggestions?

Thanks,

John C

There is a fuse box by the door right by the stabilizer switch behind a little panel. We had the same problem

Smile Success!

Thanks for the info on the fuse box. For others it is called the 'Battery Control Center (fuses and relays inside)'. It is located adjacent to the lowest step at the latch side of the entry door.

The relays are small rectangular components with a very small white pin on the end. Look for the pin that extends out more than the others and push it in. This resets the relay.
