help with 99 outback charging issue/dash warning light issue
Posted 11 July 2007 - 10:27 PM
I peeked at it when I got home and there are no dash warning lights when the key is turned on...
it runs fine with the recharged battery, still not sure if it is charging, will get a multi meter but what's up with the warning lights?

Would either of those cause the dash warning lights not to light up when the key is turned on prior to start up?

I'd start by checking at the under-dash fusebox, specifically fuse number 15. While if that fuse is blown it will cause more than what you mentioned to be out, you may not have noticed the other things as of yet.
The car died while driving today of apparent dead battery, put a new one in and drove it home. Dad checked the alternator and thought it was bad and put a used one on that he doesn't think is working either.

You should not disconnect the battery while the engine is running to check the alternator. It could damage the ECM as well.

I'd suggest checking that fuse before spending hours troubleshooting this problem. If it's not that, you won't heve wasted much time. Naturally, if it's blown, the next thing to determine is what caused that.
