SOURCE: Recently, my wife's 1998 Subaru

I had the same problem on our 1999 Forester after replacing the battery. Here was the solution I was given by Subaru Santa Cruz.
1) the key to the ON position where all the dash lights up. 2) disconnect the NEGATIVE battery terminal. 3) wait 15 seconds then reconnect the the battery. 4) start the engine from the ON position.
If this doesn't work, the car must be taken in for repair.

SOURCE: 97 outback legacy; won't start

not sure if this will help, but I recently changed the engine in my subaru and changed battery + starter also. Would start but then not restart once warmed up. Turns out the engine ground got forgotten, had that hooked back up after banging my head on a wall for a week and it runs like new

SOURCE: battery goes dead intermittently

You have a parasitic drain problem.

Have any aftermarket components been installed?

D/C the negative battery cable and hook an ammeter between the battery terminal and the cable. Anything over 50 milliamps is too high. If it is over 50 milliamps:

Go to each fuse box and pull 1 fuse at a time, check the change in the amperage reading, then plug it back in. If the reading drops to normal levels (below 50 milliamps) when a certain fuse is pulled, the problem is in the circuit powered by that fuse. Find the different components powered by that fuse and check them.

Turn key, no start, dash dead, but intermittent symptons


First I would look for voltage drop of both end of battery terminal.not a look or seem tight . you have to do it (voltage drop) and terminal at alternator.
now does alternator charging. take voltage of battery
if the problem occur have voltage of battery taken
like I read your problem it looks like wiring terminal ground and positive
the noise you hear is probably low voltage to a relay and the dropping voltage make the relay switch inside relay cycling noise click or buzz

Hi, I had the knock sensor changed in my 1997 Legacy Outback by an independant shop. I drove it the one mile back to our house and was amazed at how quiet it was to not have the ticking sound! But, now...


free check engine code read at auto zone. we replaced a sensor 15$ our spark knock sensor is still out but ran fine for two years. a month ago lost power sputtered with ac on , turned out to be a spark plug wire 29$ set of four we replaced ours with one we had from another car runs great again

1999 cad concourse, 75,000 miles, excellent shape. have had 3 or 4 times over past 6 months: engine wont turn over. (like a dead battery but put in new one last year). dash lights, horn,security,door...


This car might not get enough exercise. By that I mean there are things that are running all the time, remote entry systems, clocks, alarm systems. You may have a new battery, but it needs to be kept up to snuff. Sitting alone in the garage with NOTHING running, the battery will lose about 1% per month in ideal circumstances. As I said, your battery is powering all kinds of things while sitting in the garage so the drain is more than the 1% I mentioned. You may want to consider a trickle charger on this car if you are not able to drive it for at least 20 miles or more per week every week.

It seems your average mileage is just under 150 per week. I'm guessing you don't drive this car much on short trips, rather the bulk of your miles were highway on trips.

If I missed the boat on this question, please add a comment and I will try again.

New battery car wont start


may just be a loose terminal. I had mine replaced and it took a few hours before it ran right again. something about the electronic modules take a little time to recharge.
