Sounds like a bad Earth connection. Check all the battery and earth leads where they connect to the Battery, Engine, Starter Motor and Body. If possible disconnect, clean and reconnect.

Location of the inertia switch 2.2 wagon L


subaru does not use such a switch.
you have a simple no start condition
begin by checking the camshaft and crankshaft sensors, this generation of legacy had issues with these sensors.
After that go with the common items next, test the battery and starter for correct operation.

Car wont start. no power to headlights either, but ignition beeps when you turn key to on position.


Try boosting it If it starts with a boost your battery is bad or needs recharging.

I have a 1998 Subaru Outback Legacy 2.5 liter manual trans. When you turn the key it just clicks.


Clicking in this situation is due to either a low battery, the solenoid and/or starter, or a bad connection at the battery, the ground, or the starter & solenoid connections.

Autoparts stores like autozone will lend you a good battery while they charge yours if it tests low & after making sure the battery is fully charged, clean the terminal connections and try again. If you still have the problem you will need to test the solenoid & starter independently after checking to be sure the starter is tightly installed, no wiggle & the wires all have good connections as mentioned above. Good luck.

Starting problems


Did you bench test the old starter? Did you bench test the new starter?
the battery may appear to be good, but try jumping it with another battery.
check the cables.
use a set of jumper cables to bypass the battery cables, this is a quick way to trouble shoot the cables.
hook red to the start solenoid an black to the engine block.

Try these and let us know how you make out
hope this is of some help.

Electrical Problem with 1999 Subaru Legacy


hi there, your alternator is not putting out enough, subbies should put out about 14.4v and just after starting should put out 40-60amps. charge the batt that is in it now with a small (3.5-6amp) charger overnight then start the car and LOAD TEST the batt and alternator at a battery shop. ask them to put a carbon pile load tester on your system. im pretty sure they're gonna tell you its the alternator. many thanks, hope this helps!

your alternator sounds like its gone. ask a battery shop to come and carbon pile load test the system. sorry to say but it sounds like alt is dead. cheap enough to fix though so all good.
