Mookem Posted December 4, 2006 Share Posted December 4, 2006 I have a new Legacy GT MT5. It is about a month old and has approx 1400 miles on it. Dealer installed XM and Subwoofer. I parked it in garage over the Thanksgiving weekend so it sat unused for 4 days. When I got it it wouldn't start. The battery seemed to be stone cold dead - dome light didn't even illuminate and the side interior door lights were very dim. I jumpstarted it with cables and drove it a bit. It started the next day and I went to the dealer. They said they couldn't find anything and suggested maybe I left on the map lights - or perhaps the trunk was ajar and said bring it back if it happens again. Parked the car in my garage this Friday night and started it today (Monday) to go to work. It cranked a bit longer then usual before starting and then I heard the CD Changer rapidly and loudly clicking away - as if it was re-loading the cdroms. I then turned on the FM radio and all my preset stations were lost including all my XM presets same as when the car wouldn't start or if you were to remove the battery cable. I figure this means the battery dishcharged and/or there is an electrical short somewhere. Back to the dealer and I leave the car telling them what happened. They call back in the afternoon saying they still can't find anything. Dealer gave me a loaner and said they will let the car sit for a couple of days and will see if it doesn't start for them. I mentioned lemon law to them and they stated if they can't see a problem and document it then lemon laws don't apply. So essentially, if they can't reproduce the problem in 2 days then I'm SOL. Anything I need to be specifically telling the dealing or checking that they have done? Any insight, advice, guidance, been there done that, etc. is appreciated. To have spent $30k on a car that leaves me stranded due to electrical problems is discouraging. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
