Question about 2005 Subaru Forester

1 Answer

My 2005 Subaru Forester's alarm system is going off on its own. A local garage tested the battery and found it to be low on charge (425). Could this be the cause of the alarm going off???

Mazda 6i alarm going off and battery dying


The alarm is going off most likely due to a defective battery in the car, this is caused by low system voltage, so you have it backwards. Have the battery load tested by Autozone it is free.

No there has not been complaint's like with the Toyota's. Toyota is involved with Subaru on a few thing's , But toyota uses Subaru technology not the other way around. And the accelerator style levers are different from Subaru's. Sorry to hear about your accident. Have a great day.

2004 subaru forester battery keeps going dead, the only thing I see on is the alarm light


You have a voltage draw. Usually something like a trunk light, interior light, or glove box light.
If you can use a meter or a test light...disconnect your battery ground, and put the light or meter between the cable end and the battery. A normal draw will be a very slight light of the bulb, or a small milli-amp reading. A big draw will give a bright light or higher amp readings, so now you remove fuses, one at a time to break it down to what may be causing the draw.
