    BATTERY TOTALLY FLAT

    Hey all,

    I have a 2004 Subaru Impreza and left the lights on overnight. I had to open the car manually this morning...no alarm went off, no lights, totally nothing. Tried jump starting it for as long as I could before I had tae get to work but the same again...key turns but nothing there, no ignition, no lights on anywhere, no red alarm light....its like its totally dead. Can someone please help?
    Cheers.

    is it a manual or automatic transmission? if its manual, have u tried jump starting it by pushing it and popping the clutch? if its auto...ull need a jump start from another car or call a tow truck. flag down a cop and see if the officer will jump start your car.

    Before you try that there still has to be enough power for the fuel pump to pressurise the system otherwise you're wasting your time.

    If the Red alarm LED won't turn on, then no there isn't enough power for the fuel pump. Sounds like it's time for a new battery.

    Draining a battery too much will damage it. I would put the battery in question on a trickle charger over night, if it doesn't have a charge in the morning then it's time for a new one.

    The battery is probably damaged.

    Lead acid batteries don't like being full discharged. It affects their ability to hold the charge, even after they've been recharged.
