Re: check light and battery drain when ign on

Is it a classic impreza or what kind? cause if it a classic you can read the engine light code manually heres the linkHow to read ECU codes Classic Impreza heres the codesScoobypedia | Trusted knowledge for everything Subaru | Knowledge / Subaru Specific Trouble Code Definitions if its a new age car from 2001 up you need to plug it in at a garage you cant check them manually. What way is your battery how old is it and did you get it tested? might be just battery as this can drain the battery if you let ignition on for a bit if battery very weak welcome to the site
