Bought a theft recover 2005 Impreza RS. Lots of minor stuff, including a demolished ignition switch. I could and did start it with a screwdriver to move it around the garage and such.
I bought a used ignition switch off ebay, and the seller ensured me it was from a manual.
The switch starts the car, but I have some very strange stuff happening.
As soon as you connect the battery, the parking lights on all four corners come on.
When you turn the key into start position, just before you turn to start it, the fan goes on an off repeatedly and you hear various relays clicking on and off.
So, my question is...
Could it be a bad switch in general?
Could it be from an auto and is not compatible with the manual car?
This will be my step son's first car so I am trying to get the body work done and on the road as soon as possible so he can drive the job I made him get
