Since it's still under the factory bumper to bumper warranty, and it's nothing you're obviously leaving energized when the car is off, why not take it to your nearest Subaru dealer?

If you screw around with it you may have your warranty canceled

I bought a 2017 outback on Feb 13, 2017. The day before Christmas at 11:30 am, after driving the car for a while, I parked at Bed Bath Beyond parking lot went inside for less than half an hour and came out and the car would not start. After about 4 turns, it started. This happened again in February 2018. This time, after 10 turns and when it would not start, I thought I would have to tow the car. I stopped and sat for a few minutes and tried again and it starred. Aldo, at unrelated times, I had noticed hearhng the ekectrical sound of electrocution several time but so far these were not on highway.

I have a 2018 Legacy 3.6R with eyesight. in the last 6 weeks with 9000 miles on my car the radio and navigation died 2 times and the car died on the highway 3 times in 2 weeks. The dealership I use said they had to do an update on the computer 3 weeks ago. Since the update the car keeps die ing and is now is the shop for the 6th time in 6 weeks.
