Question about 1993 Subaru Impreza
When I push on my brakes the tail lights go out and my brakes don't work

You have a bad ground in one or both of the rear light assemblies. Pull the access covers, and look for the ground points (wires to the body) and loosen, tighten them. Pull the bulbs out and replace them again: this removes and minor corrosion and restores proper contact.

Replace the bulbs.
The bulbs will have two seperate elements in it which is why the brake light works.
Take the bulbs out and you will see the seperate elements.

If you have a trailer harness connector,check pinched and shorted connector,if not,check for a burnt and shorted light socket or pigtail

There are several components of your 1997 Subaru Outback that can cause your tail lights to stop functioning correctly. To help pinpoint the cause of the problem, it would be very helpful to also check your front marker lights. If the marker lights are working, then we know that the problem is not the headlamp switch or the tail and illumination relay (located in the fuse and relay box).
The components to check are:
> Fuse #23 (20 Amp) in the Main Fuse Box.
> Fuse #5 (10 Amp) in the Fuse and Relay Box
> Tail And Illumination Relay
> Headlamp Switch

SOURCE: On my 2008 Subaru Outback,
Did anyone find a solution, or a good lead on the problem? Just had the bumper replaced after a small accident (tire dealership) and I'd rather not go hunting if it's something simple.

first of all check and confirm whether in the fuse box separates the left from right side and see for blown fuse. or check for any disconnection on the rear light
