    Starting my car..

    Hey everyone i've had my car for about 8 months already and the first mod i had was an alarm system, it came with an auto start too, which is really great for cold weather, show off, scare people etc etc

    anyways im worried about starter, i think its messed up a little. i would put in the key and it will crank like 3-4 times until it starts. Makes my car sound like some sort of 1985 dodge.

    keep in mind in the Albany/NYC area where i usually am its about 10 degrees latly.

    I know subaru will not replace it or look at it because of the auto start system .... what to do?

    Thanks in advance!

    It's just the weak factory battery in cold weather. You can turn the key and leave it on ON for a few seconds to let the fuel pump prime first and then start the car. That usually helps. I know that on my car, the alarm learned the start sequence when I programmed it in and actually waits a few seconds before starting the engine. The other option is to replace the battery with one with better cold crank amps.
