Battery Sixe for 2003 Legacy

I need a new battery for my 2003 Subaru Legacy.  What size should this replacement be.  I believe I have an 85???  some odd battery in there now.  I was told a 75D would work but it seemed a bit much as I really did not need the dual connection feature.

How to change a 2010 Subaru Legacy battery, do I need to hook up with another battery first before I disconnect with the old one.


Its possible, sometimes the new vehicles work with anti-theft systems; confirm with your owners manual battery procedure or ask your dealer.

I have a 2003 subaru legacy and the head lamp bulbs are going out 1 at a time at a rate of about 1 a month. I have replaced the bulbs. The battery voltage checks out fine. What is the problem?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. I would make sure that there is no water getting into the head lamp. Moisture building up in the head lamp can cause this. If this is not the case, you may have a bad wire in the harness. Check closely around the bulb socket and test all wires for current.

Replaced battery about a month ago. After about as


Could be a poor connection on one of the battery terminals - be sure they are tight.
Could also be a starter solenoid that is sticking.

1995 subaru legacy with new starter and solenoid,every week or two solenoid will click but starter won't engage.I can jump from solenoid to starter and start it.


A solenoid needs so much power to kick in.  I think your battery is getting old and not at full capacity.  Hove it check and replace if needed.

Subaru Outback Legacy Flashing
Q. I have a 1996 Subaru Outback Legacy AWD manual transmission. the hazards flash when I turn the car off. I tried to reset the system by pushing the little black button under the drivers' side dash but it won't reset the system. I had problems with the brakes so I did not drive it for about two months and when I tried to start the car the battery was dead.
mechanic.jpg Now the brakes are fixed but the hazards won't quit flashing and the guy who repaired the car said I needed to reset the system by pushing the little black button. And I don't know if I should have it looked at, or change the battery, or if it is something very simple I can fix by my self.
Thank you very much,
Patrick
A. Patrick, you are the third person in the last two days that has come to me with this same exact problem under the same conditions. As of now I don't have any concrete information on this, but I believe the problem to be in the alarm system.
I believe the battery being disconnected or dying does something to the Anti-theft and Alarm System module and having a Subaru dealer reset the system will correct it.
If you do this and it works, please, let me know and I will pass the information on to the others.

Dear Mr. Ciulla,
I read your Q&A titled "Subaru Outback Legacy Flashing". I recently had the same problem on my 1996 2.5 liter Subaru Legacy Outback and your response is correct but I can give you a little more detail on what worked for me to stop the light flashing (which occurs sometimes if the battery had been dead):
There is a black reset button under the I/P near the anti-theft module.
  1. Turn ignition on
  2. Hold button 20+ seconds (door locks will lock/unlock 3 times)
  3. Turn ignition off
This also resets the key FOB so as step 2.5 you should also press the "lock" button on the key FOB before releasing the black reset button (door locks will lock/unlock one more time--do this with each key FOB you own). That's all!
The questioner in your Q&A said he tried the reset button; I suspect he either didn't turn the ignition on/off or didn't hold it in for over 20 seconds.
PS... pulling the door lock fuse will stop it temporarily if you can't get the above to work and have to take it to the dealer
Regards,
John
