I have a 1997 Subaru legacy GT with 61,000 miles on it.
I think I'm having an electrical problem that may be draining my battery. There's a clicking noise that seems to be coming from under the steering wheel area & the dash lights (i'm not sure what this is called--where the odometer, spedometer, etc are--this whole area) are flashing as is the glove compartment light--they flash in time to the clicking. This happens even when the key is not in the ignition!
My battery has died twice now in the past 12 hours & I just got it replaced but it was only after that that I realized this clicking/flashing lights problem. Also, the parking lights are on all the time even though that parking light switch on top of the steering wheel is turned off (so the red is showing). Since this happens even when the key isn't in the ignition i'm worried this is going to drain my battery again before I have time to get it looked at. It's evening right now so it will be at least another 12 hours or so before I could have anyone look at it.
does anyone know if there's something I can do to make this clicking/flashing lights stop at least until I can get it looked at so my battery isn't drained overnight?
i don't know anything about fuses, fixing cars, etc
have the same problem?
