Question about Subaru Impreza
Unfortunately this is indicative of a failed alternator. When teh vehicle is started teh battery provides teh initial power to turn over the starter and then it stops and allows teh alternator to provide the power required to keep teh engine running (fire needed requires spark, air, and fuel) When an alternator dies the battery has a RCA or reserver capacity amps that indicate how long the car will run on batter power only. Since you indicated a sudden decrease in the car and a dead conditions with failure to turn over then it leans towards the bad alternator. Depending on your mechanical ability you can remove the alternator and have it checked at the local aprt store. Try jumping the car and then ave someone follow you to the part store.. yo uwill like have to rejump it several times... if you arent comfortable removing alternator. If your battery has been running the car on RCA than having input back into it from teh alternator then its likely it is burned out... So replacement of alternator and battery are recommended.
