Subaru 2009 battery problem

The battery goes dead if the car is not used for 15 days. My daughter has to get a baby sitter to bring the car for a drive while she's away for her work, wich are often 2 weeks time. She had the battery check and the dealer tells her the battery is number one and she has to expect that as a normal thig, for it to die if the car is not driven for 2 weeks. Its all because of the computerized system in the car. We think this is a complete turn off for Subaru cars. We thought they were dependable cars.!

It is possible with clocks and such to drain the battery after 2 weeks. if you can't let it run for a while during that time, just unhook negitive battery cable untill ready to use.

99 subaru outback battery goes dead overnite. checks good under load test.

you may have something draining the battery a bare wire touching something, check all of the lights , trunk,hood, glove box to make sure they are all off try disconnecting a lead from the battery overnight to see if the battery still is dead in the morning, if it doesn't go dead you will have to try and find out where the problem is .....hope this helps......cheers.

Under the dash to the left of where your left leg would sit is a box. 4" x 4". It is your security box. There is either a red button on it or a wire with a button. push the button for about 15 seconds and it will reset the security system. Good luck and have a great day.

The battery keeps going dead after only a few days.

check the battery voltage with the car running, you should see 13.5 to16 volts dc if the alternator is working. Make sure you are not doing short runs all of the time when starting a car it take approximately 15 minutes to bring the battery to full charge so if your trips are under 15 minutes all of the time the battery will run down. if everything else looks ok it is possible you have a bad battery or something is left on in the car

I have 2009 Corvette, with battery problems as follows: IT seems when it sits for a week or so the battery goes dead. The dealer could not find anything wrong except for a bad battery, so they replaced it....

it has a draw, and they will be best equipped to find it. There are more modules on that car than the shuttle. it may take them a while, its warranty right?? its just a process of elimination, removing modules/ components from the "LOOP" until the draw goes away. good luck

2009 subaru outback will not start and a light with an E

are you using a factory key>??? If not you probably have an immobilizer system installed. It takes a special key and that key needs to be registered with the BIU. Bring the vehicle to a Subaru dealer. They can program it for you.....bring ALL your keys at the same time. They need to be programmed together.

Hyundai Santa Fe battery dies after 2 days with no use

Hi, I have had similar intemittent dead\low battery problems with my 2008 CDX+.

The garage could never find anything wrong with the charging system, battery or drain. I bought a replacement battery, jump start power pack, battery tester and battery charger, in total costing hunders of pounds in an attempt to resolve the problem.

I was on the point of selling it when one day I heard the roof mounted DVD player making noises when I hadn't switched it on (I never switch it on). After disconnecting it the car started perfectly for months. After reconnecting it the issue came back, however I could never recreate the problem at the dealership as it was intermittent, and they had it for days. Eventually the DVD player took in a disc and refused to eject it. This was enough to have it replaced under warranty. Unfortunately the new one took about 4 months to come in and I have never recieved my disc back.

The new DVD player seems to have helped, however I can still report that in the 6 months or so since fitting I have had one of the new overhead bulbs blow and the battery has been dead on 2 occassions. The last occassion was yesterday and we had driven the car fine the day before.

I now carry the power pack in the car at all times, however as this is my wife's car she is concerned about being stranded with our new baby. My thoughts have once again turned to changing cars (new diesel auto crv 2010?) which is a shame as the Santa Fe ticks the boxes in so many other areas.

Hope this helps. ?
