Also is there a regulator on the battery/alternator, I assume there is but could not find it.
On another car I used to own, regulators were a common problem and if your battery drained it was a good idea to ''feel'' the regulator to see if it was warm.
If warm, it was broken.
Not sure if it is the same setup on a Subaru, but most probably is.
From what I am told the alternators are pretty sturdy and do not die too easily, always pays to check the regulator first.
