2003 subaru impreza rs

Asked by Apr 18, 2017 at 09:18 PM about the 2003 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just changed an entire headlight out and my
car ran fine for one day and when I tried to
leave Walmart my car just stopped running......
My headlights, the windows and the power
locks now don't work and the engine will not
turn over.  Of I spray the intake filter with
engine starter fluid it will crank but not stay
on....... Any suggestions?

So the car starts and runs for a bit with starter fluid? Probably a bad fuel pump but check the fuse first. Have the battery and alternator tested and make sure your battery connections are clean and tight.

The battery is like a month old and all new connections...... Could the fuses keep the fuel pump from working properly?

If the fuse is bad,everything connected to it will stop working. I would still recommend checking the battery connections.

how bad/dead is/was the battery..im confused ...headlights, the windows and the power locks now don't work..yet it will turn over BUT NOT STAY RUNNING? REPLACE THE FUEL FILTER...CHECK POWER TO THE FUEL PUMP ALSO if you have power to it replace fuel pump also...

Only turns over with starter fluid

The term "turn over" is used to describe an engine that rotates when you try to start it but does not fire. I think you mean it starts but dies immediately.

Well it won't start then...... When I turn the key it tries to start but won't....

Check cam and crank sensors, as they "tell" the ECU to operate the fuel pump.
