There is a small 4" x4" black box hooked by steering column under dash. Push the red button for a couple secounds and this will reset so the flashers won't flash. Have a good day.

My 1996 mercedez e320 only starts when I JumpStart


Connect a voltmeter across the battery terminals. While engine off, if the voltage is below 12V it means your battery is either dead or discharged. Once you've jump-started your car, check the battery voltage again. If it's still low (like below 13.5V) it may mean you have a problem with your alternator.
Let me know the voltages and we'll think what to do next.

Will the alarm kill switch on a 96 gti golf be active if no led lights are flashing


have a look at the earth lead from the body of the car to engine to see if this is corroded an easy test would be to put a jump lead from negative of battery to anywhere on engine gearbox if this doesn't solve issue check the lead going to starter motor for corrosion and tightness

I just changed the starter, disconnected battery


Under dash by your left knee is a 4"x4" box. It has a small wire lead with a button on the end. Turn ignition on and push button. Resets the alarm. THis will stop your lights from flashing. Have a great day.

The turn signals inside the car do not work, just stopped for no reason. told i need a flasher, which i purchased from advanced auto. 3 mechanics today, could not figure out where the flasher is to be...


If the signals outside flash, then you don't need a flasher, just the inside bulb.
The flasher plugs into your fuse box, which is either in the engine compartment, or under the glovebox.

My running lights will not turn off unless I unhook the battery.


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

Override remote


I have a similar type of problem. After charging the battery and re-setting the computer, the front and rear lights that would be on in the drving light mode, now are somehow connected to a flasher unit and continue to flash even when the key is off. The only way I've found to stop the lights flashing is to pull the green fuse in the computer box. Looks forward to learning how to fix.
