Question about 2000 Subaru Forester
Recently the battery in our Subaru Legacy started draining all of its juice for no apparent reason. The first time it happened, I assumed that the battery was old and wouldn't hold a charge anymore. I bought a brand new battery which started and ran the car. However after I drove the car for about 15 miles, that batter went dead as well.
When it comes to automotive problems, I am fairly mechanically inclined but as soon as you add an ellectrical problem to the mix, I become progressively dumb and dumber.
Frustrated and getting more so, can anyone help
I had the same problem on my NEW Forester, dealer told me to check the litttle switch set far down on the top of the steering column. I had accidently turned it on while cleaning the car. It turns on some tiny lights that are used more in Japan and not easily noticed unless you are looking for them. Sure enough, that is what caused my battery to drain multiple times.
Not sure if it helps but it's worth checking just in case.
