SOURCE: 97 outback legacy; won't start
not sure if this will help, but I recently changed the engine in my subaru and changed battery + starter also. Would start but then not restart once warmed up. Turns out the engine ground got forgotten, had that hooked back up after banging my head on a wall for a week and it runs like new

well first off, check the glove box light blub, make sure it shuts off when you close the door, check it by pressing the switch with your finger to make sure it shuts off, also check under the hood for the light there if there is one, pull the bulb, and the same thing for any bulb in the trunk, then check again after a day to see if the battery dies, if it is dying while the vehicle is not running then it is the battery, if it is dying after it is running then it is the alt. you can check that also tho with a multimeter set to the DC volts setting, place the black end <the ground to any grounded area> and the red end <the hot lead to the back of the alt. > it should be reading higher then 12 volts, normally should be a higher reading then 12 volts... if you are getting a lower reading or just 12 volts then the alt. is bad and needs to be replaced...hope this helps you out...

Battery charge voltage should not exceed 14.5V when the alternator is charging.
Your battery may be faulty- the high charging voltage you observed (15.5V) indicates :-
1) a faulty battery- or poor connection due corroded / loose terminals causing battery to not accept charge current,
2) faulty alternator voltage regulator,
3) battery / or alternator ground are not properly connected.
Battery open circuit voltage (12.7) does not indicate much.
Try measuring the terminal voltage of the battery with the park or headlights on.
It should hold approx 12V under load condition.
Your jumper leads getting hot indicate they are carrying very high current. This is probably the starter motor current being drawn from the jumpstart battery- again indicating a flat or poorly connected 'in vehicle' battery.
