Question about 1994 Subaru Legacy Outdoor

1 Answer

When starting, I get one click, and the car will not sart.

I have a 1994 subaru legacy wagon L AWD. I have a starting problem - when I turn the key, you can hear the selinod clikc once and thats it. I ran a wire to the start selinoid and to the + terminal of the battery...it started. I then changed the starter switch. It still does the same thing (one click)although starts on the first pull sometimes now. If I move the starter swith around a bit, it will start more reliably. Ideas?

My 94 subaru legacy wagon wont start. It only clicks when i turn on the key. I had starter checked and it tested good.


Hello and welcome to FIxYa!

It can be caused by a week battery. As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you have the battery charged or have it replaced for the starter to kick fully.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My 1994 subaru legacy wagon won't start. when I turn the key nothing happens apart from a click. This occurred straight after I tried to Jump Start a Van.


try to jump start your car see if the interior lights are real dim headligjhts maybe you drained your battery too much or burned your alternator also check the fuse for your alternator see if blew hope this helps also check the fuse for your battery and check make sure the terminals are tight not dirty

Do you hear a 'click' when the key is turned to start? Have someone try the key while you listen under the hood. It should be the starter solenoid clicking. You need either a test light or voltmeter to test further. One large terminal on the solenoid has the large wire from the battery positive, and should always show voltage/light at all times. Test the other side of the solenoid (large terminal) that is connected to the terminal on the starter motor. It should show light/voltage when the key is turned. If it doesn't, the solenoid must be replaced. If it does show light/voltage, then the starter motor is defective (probably brushes). If you get no click when turning the key, test the small terminal on the solenoid, you should see a voltage/light change when the key is turned. If you see a change, but no click, the solenoid coil is open or the case of the solenoid is not grounding where it is mounted. Try loosening the mounting and re-tighten. If no help, replace the solenoid. If you see no change at the small terminal, remove the wire from it and using a spare piece of wire, touch the small terminal to, first, the large terminal that the battery is connected to, then to the the mounting bolt for the solenoid. If the solenoid is good, the starter should operate with one of these two tests. In that case, the starter position of key switch is open--replace the ignition switch.

This problem is usually caused when the transfer solenoid/valve assembly goes bad, it's located in the transmission extension housing & needs to be replaced. it can be done without removing the transmission.
