SOURCE: 1996 Subaru Legacy No Power At All

Last night I checked the battery and it was still good. I disconnected and then reconn ected both terminals and that brought the power back. When I turned the key the power went out again. I repeated the procedure but did not turn the key. Instead, I took off the knee bolster and tried to wiggle the wires under the dash to see if I could find the source since it seems to be related to the ignition. Nothing cut the power so I started it up and it worked fine except for the check engine light which was flashing that says I have a misfire condition. I drove the car 25 miles to work this morning and will be taking it to the dealer for a better inspection.

Have you checked the ignition fuses, or checked for power to your ignition module? You have everything else covered! I hope these ideas will get you running. Best wishes.

I have the same car - same problem. Too hot or too cold and then just another once and while for good measure :(
I've had the battery checked and is good. Is it likely to be the starter?

does your heater work? if not than your thermostat is stuck. be careful not to get the car hot as those engines are sensitive and will warp the cylinder heads quickly.

1996 Subaru Legacy overheating in strange way


Was the water pump brand new or rebuilt? I have seen rebuilts fail on the first test drive.
Before pulling the head, I would take it to a shop and request a CO2 test to check for combustion gasses in the cooling system. Shouldn't cost more than $30 and is a pretty definative test.

Both head gaskets have to be replaced and the heads need to be resurfaced, be sure you go thru the torque specs and sequence correctly, it is a strange process, but has to be done. subaru puts out a product called cooling system conditioner, it's advised to install this.
