  1. Help my battery keeps going dead Just bought a 1999 Legacy and having a few problems. One is I keep loosing charge to my battery. I have purchased and installed a new battery and this did not help.(New battery still goes dead) My alternator is charging around 14V so I am currently looking for some type of drain on the system. I just checked the positive post on my alternator and there is battery voltage to the post with the key in the off position . Could this be the problem? Thanks Bill
  2. Hello, USMB. I found you because of this incredible day we've had. It's *hilarious*, so I thought I'd share. It's the last weak of a month of 60 mandatory hours. I am commuting from the country. Get up this morning, it's 3 degrees, battery's dead because the door didn't close. OK... lucky enough to borrow my BFF's car- 16 minutes late clocking in. No big deal. The plan was to jump it after work. I'm parked in such a way that I had to let it roll backwards down the hilly gravel driveway so the cables can reach from her car. Try to open the hood, aaaand the release lever, under the hood, snaps off. Dead battery, can't open the hood, driveway blocked. Might be able to squeeze the other car past to get... to work & other places. Yay! Happy Holidays, y'all.
  3. Not sure what, but something is draining my battery. Background- Battery died. Very low voltage. No Charging. Decided to get new alt. Swapped in a 90amp maxima alt with this style (no connector plug.) Photo from this thead. http://www.ultimatesubaru.org/forum/topic/97208-bolt-in-ea-series-alternator-upgrade-nissan-maxima-alt-installation-guide/page-6?hl=%20conditioning%20%20ea82 During connection of two plug wires. I touched them, with battery connected.. Followed with a puff of smoke from the fusible link box. Went in, replaced with inline fuses. Battery tested bad. Got a new battery. Battery is still dropping voltage. Believe I have traced Parasitic draw to hazard, clock, fuze, as a current is present across that fuse. Pulled out clock found burned out connection. Clipped out clock entirely. They never keep time anyway. Still, theres a draw on battery. With hazards on only rear blinkers come on. Is that normal? Could there be a short somewhere causing drain? Could use some ideas. Im stumped. Thanks
  4. So, I've got a 97 Legacy Outback... Fuel pump went out far from home was quoted an astronomical price to fix it, called my mechanic back home can do it for $300 cheaper, so I push it onto a uhaul auto transporter and drag it home. when I get to the shop well after closing time I left the key in the on position, now I have a dead battery and can't even push it off the trailer. The question is will a new or freshly charged battery allow me to get it in N, so I can get it off the trailer? Any thoughts?
  5. I inadvertently left the ignition on while cleaning the car, and after 18 hours it was seriously dead. Got it started with a jump (yes red to red, black to black) which did take some cranking and fussing. Since then it is hard to start, idling way low (loping between almost zero and 250 rpm), stumbles, feels like it's hovering on the edge of a stall in traffic, and hesitates when driving. We live in Kailua-Kona village, a no highway beach town, so all subsequent trips have been short, slow, and in traffic. I've driven it on sport mode and kept the rpms up in the high threes and low fours a couple of trips, and I've opend the gas ca and resecured it. Has it forgotten how to Subaru? I'm thiking the computer needs to be retrained? Best way? Highway trip, reprogram, has something been damaged? :-(
