Question about 1999 Subaru Legacy
My 1999 Subaru legacy still will not start after replacing the 5 year old battery. Suggestions please
Check your terminal connections, if they are loose they will need to be inspected for breaks. If they are broken you will need to replace the connection. Make sure they are clean and free of corrosion.
Other possible Problems
If the car wont turn over your starter could be bad.
If it turns over but wont start it could be any number of these problems.

Did you notice any visible sparks when the battery was replaced? I have seen people hook batteries up backwards with out starting a fire, this is due to the posts being reversed when it's an aftermarket battery(but highly unlikely). are your, "hazards" or "any" lights flashing? Do you have an alarm on your car? disconnecting the battery to replace it could have reset the alarm. Most of the time you just push the unlock button on the alarm remote and then try to start it. If your lights are flashing then you need to disconnect your battery negative terminal, then turn on your ignition, then reconnect the battery ground terminal. this will reset the vehicles factory security immobilizer function. If neither of those work, then check all of your fuses in the under hood fuse box, which is next to the battery. I hope this info helps!
