Question 2008 Impreza suddenly deader than a doornail

Went to open my Impreza using remote key fob and nothing happened.Thought maybe to try other key fob - nothing. Opened door manually, put in first, pushed in clutch, turned key - absolutley nothing. Not even a click. No dash light up, nothing. The car was fine three days ago.

Oh yes, had some after market fog lamps put in. Could something have happened that would cause the whole electric sysyem to go on the fritz? I checked my light switches - all in "off" and all doors were closed properly.

Sounds like you have a dead car battery. Charge and test the battery.

I had that problem twice with mine.
Big problem for me was the car is 'delocked' so I couldn't open the doors manually. Had to get subaru assistance to 'break in'.
Anyway, turned out to be the battery, which was replaced under warranty by Subaru as car was only 2 years old.

My advice is call subaru assistance, which should have come free with your car.
Some say he naturally faces magnetic north, and that all his legs are hydraulic...

unless the relay for your new fogs is faulty, it could be flattening your battery (or it could be a iffy battery)
