Question about 2004 Subaru Impreza

2005 VW Jetta 1.5 drain amps

The battery on my '05 Jetta was dead this Sunday. I called AAA and they said that the battery needed to be replaced. They replaced the battery and after the new battery was in it was saying that I had 1.5 drain amps. I took to my local garage and they couldn't find anything wrong with it, but doesn't there have to be a reason why this number is higher?
Can I hurt the car by not investigating further? Any suggestions?

Battery is dead alarm goes off when jumping it

The battery should be removed and charged, not jumped. If you are a AAA member, they will do it for you. If not, join AAA for $35 and the next day call them for the free service.

1999 Jaguar XJR - Dead battery and can't get in locked trunk

It takes a deal of time and patience to charge via the cigarette lighter socket though there should soon have been enough power to open the boot.

It should be possible to access the end of the main battery lead in the engine compartment in order to jump start the engine, provide power to open the boot or to charge the battery, if the battery is healthy enough to accept a charge. Some cars with a remote battery provide terminals for the purpose though I don't know whether the Jag does. If it doesn't the main battery cable terminates at the starter motor.

'05 Focus not starting

do the headlights come on? maybe the battery ran dead for some reason while you were working on the car.

Get a jump start & see if it starts then. Call AAA or the Ford assistance number in your owner manual if you don't have jumper cables. It should be free.
