Electrical Starting Issues

Hey there,

I have a 94 Impreza sedan and basically every 1/3 times I start the car my electronics seem to not work. Most noticeable is my stereo not going and window wipers not working. To fix the issue I would have to turn the car off and back on again and even then it sometimes doesn't fix it. Also just driving sometimes it comes on by itself.

Any suggestions? Thanks

Oh and every now and then it makes a horrible grinding sound when trying to start over, I have had my starter motor cleaned and re-lubed not too long ago, could this be the problem?

Re: Electrical Starting Issues

The electrical issue sounds like a bad earth / relay issue.

Re: Electrical Starting Issues

Oh okay I haven't checked the battery connections yet but i'm fairly confident they'll be find, wouldn't have anything to do with a sub and amp would it? The earth for that is grounded nicely.

With the relay, which could be playing up?

Thanks for the fast reply!
