    New owner of 02 WRX...but have car problems

    Hey all,

    I just recently picked up an 02 blue wrx about a week ago. I love the car up until it started having problems. Just recently it started dying out on me but I was able to start it back up right away. Now it won’t start at all.

    What I noticed?

    It has power but it won’t want to crank over like it doesn’t have any spark. The radio works but the weird thing is that the headlights, tail lights, and the instrument panel indicators aren’t on.

    I checked all fuses and ground wires and they seem to be fine. I would appreciate it if you guys can help me out. This is my only car and I would like to continue to enjoy it again.

    -Tim

    How old is the battery?
    Life is like riding a bicycle in order to keep your balance you must keep moving.

    Definitely sounds like a battery or charging issue. Your best bet would be a load test.

    OP, try to refrain from creating parallel threads. Your other thread can be found here New owner..but have car problems..please help

    I'm sure the mods will be kind enough to merge these two threads.
