Question about 1997 Subaru Legacy
I was driving home from work when I noticed the lights were kind of dim, but didn't think much of it at the time. I got a few miles down the road when the radio shut off and I lost power steering and a few other systems. I pulled over and turned the car off. When I shut the car off, the parking lights stayed on and the interior lights(dashboard, radio light, etc.) were clicking on and off. There was a noticeable clicking noise that sounded like a clock ticking. The lights clicked on and off with the clicking of this noise. I jumped the battery and was able to get it home. I then replaced the alternator and then the battery as well as the battery terminals. It starts right up now, but the clicking is still there and there is no power steering. What could be wrong with it?
I believe I can help with the clicking. The parking lights should be flashing Also. Whenever power is lost to the system IE the battery removed, The factory anti theft comes on. It is a small 4" x4" box hooked by steering column under dash. It has a red button you push for a few secounds and that should stop the clicking and flashing.
