I will be driving along in my 99 Legacy, when I will lose all electrical power, no radio, signals, lights, horns, tranny won't shift, then after a bit, it all comes back!!!This happened 3 times today finally leaving me stranded. Car finally died and will not crank over. Earlier in the day,the same thing happened, I got a jump and it worked for awhile, then it died completely again.
I am pretty good with cars, but this seems to be more than just a bad alternater or a bad battery.
I think a bad alternater would not be good then bad then good and then bad again.
Also, in the past few days my check engine lite was lit for awhile, it may be just a coincidence, but I think it may be connected. I do not know if my code reader will read with a dead battery.
If anyone else has had this same problem, please chime in with a remedy.
