Maybe your Battery is Too Old.

That happened to my legacy without warning. It was a cold morning, but it cranked over and started up just fine. Didn't crank slow or anything, no failure warning.
Got in my car to get lunch and the remote unlock didn't work... Battery totally dead. I worked at a garage so I got a booster pack, upon plugging it in I got a huge spark like I directly shorted out the leads. My battery just plain shorted out and died while sitting there. Threw in a new battery and got lunch... but weird.
It's more common than you think. Once every week or two we'd get a car because it was fine then failed to start, battery either completely or partially shorted out.

I had the old wires on and my new ones came in tonight so i picked them up and went to put them on and they are too short for 1 & 3 and to the coil. The same thing happened a year and a half ago when I bought NGK plugs and they are numbered wrong too. Has anyone else had trouble with NGK plug lenghts and if so what are the right ones for my 83 coupe EA-81.
