Question about 1993 Subaru Legacy
First try to get a jump from someone or call a wrecker to give you one. If it cranks, drive it straight to Autozone or similar car care center. If your car drives for more than 10 minutes, you can be reasonably sure it's not the alternator, it's the battery. When you get to the store, have them check the battery. If it's the problem, replace the battery. Then have them check the alternator. If they check the alternator with a bad battery, it will give a false reading indicating the alternator is bad. Don't assume that just because the lights come on that the battery is ok.
If it doesn't jump start, you'll need to check the starter. Does it click but not turn over? If so, you may have a bad starter.
I had a 1991 Suburban that would intermittantly stall out and/or not crank. Turns out there was a loose wire behind the alternator that needed to be reconnected. May check all the wires connecting to the alternator and make sure they're tight.
And just to ask the obvious, it's not out of gas is it?
