Question about 1999 Subaru Legacy
I have a 1999 Outback (automatic, 27K miles) and it has developed an annoying starting problemwell, actually, a "failure to start" problem. Every so often (4 times in the last 3 weeks), I try to start the car and practically nothing happens. No starter sound, the warning lights on the dash don't light upnothing but a clicking sound coming from near the glove box. The battery is still fine because I can play the radio. I can try a dozen times and nothing happens. Then, if I wait 10 minutes it starts fine. Any clues? -> Gerry My 1999 Subaru has had a starting problem several times a year for the last 5 years. Usually tickling the wires under the steering columb allows the starter to engage with the switch. I first replaced the starter to no avail. Then lived with the problem until this time. The dealer said to bring it in the next time it happens but I can't bring it in when it won't start. It always starts when I turn the key on and jump power to it at the solenoid comnnection on the starter. Whats the deal and what part do I need? I hear the click near the glove box also as stated by others on the site.. Thanks, firstname.lastname@example.org
I cleaned the terminals and tightened the connections and solved a similar problem.
