Question about 1995 Subaru Legacy
I'm having an electrical problem with my 1999 Subaru Legacy. It will only start when I jump it with another vehicle. I rrecently eplaced the battery with a brand new battery. It started then but it won't hold a charge overnight. The alternator is putting out 13.3 to 13.5 when it's running. What should I check next?
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!
