Subaru legacy Gt 96 clicks but wont start just pulled it out and tested working fine any idea where i would put my attention next?

You don't say what it was you tested or how, but I assume it was the battery. If you just put a voltmeter on it, that will not tell you if the battery is dying.

The symptoms you describe are classic, the sound of the starter solenoid pulling in, and arise almost always from

- a dying battery which cannot hold a full charge, but which can still pull in the starter solenoid, run the radio etc, but not crank the motor

- worn starter solenoid main contacts which cannot close the main supply circuit from battery to starter motor

- a dead segment in the starter motor armature which is preventing it from rotating

- a bad ground, usually between engine block and chassis

One way to narrow it down is to try jump starting your motor from a known good battery or another car with running motor, taking precautions to avoid frying your electronics.

Rear defrost not working on 2000 legacy gt, fuses are good, light comes on on switch. Any ideas?

If it is a wagon the wiring goes bad back at the gate. If not you need to check the voltage on both sides of the grid and work back till voltage is found.

New battery dead in 1 week.

It sounds like the problem is the voltage regulator. I would check that out first. Hope this helped.

I have a 2000 subaru legacy on which the battery was was connected wrong, something got fried i think, not sure what. I can't get the ignition light on.

Check the fuses, they're located under the hood and in most vehicles they are under the dash or in the glove box. and check the fuse able link the leads from the alternator to your ignition module. When the battery was hooked up wrong it fried some fuse or the fuse able link, or even the bulb for the ignition light located behind the dash board. you can email me at and I'll check my manuals.
