1996 Subaru Legacy Factory Radio / Cassette Deck Went Berzerk

My husband went to go to the store and got into the car, and found that we have a dead battery. The tape deck (factory) that we NEVER use was going berzerk, it sounded like it was trying to eject a cassette, this happened even after he took out the fuse and had only stopped when he unhooked the battery (even with the ignition off) and it had completely drained our battery. Any ideas other that removing the radio completely?

Radio dead after battery failure. possible anti theft code required?

Yes, alot of cars have this feature. It is a anti-theft feature so if it is removed you need a code to unlock the radio (or if the battery is unpluged). If it's an after market deck than it should be in the manual if no manual than try googling it. If it is the factory deck than more than likly you will have to go back to the dealer to get the code. Good luck.

92 Subaru Legacy Power Windows Don't Work

I have a 92 that did the same. After checking fuses and the relay(located under drivers seat) I discovered that the power windows control module on drivers door was bad. Went to a salvage and bought a used for $40, pulled the door panel, unscrewed and unplugged the old one, put in the used one and everything worked fine. About a week later, the passenger side motor went out and replaced that with a used power window motor. All windows now work fine.

Subaru Legacy Problem:

I'd say it is most likely the Air Flow meter has turned it's toe's up. If the Throttle PS was dead it wouldn't even rev to 2K.
