2013 Subaru BRZ: Dome Light Left On

March 28, 2013

2013 Subaru BRZ

This morning I walked out to our 2013 Subaru BRZ and found the dome light left on. At the time I had no way of knowing how long it was lit. So I hustled upstairs, grabbed the key and climbed inside.

The fact that the light was still on seemed like a good omen, I rationalized, as I crossed my fingers and pressed the start button. It chugged briefly before turning over. It must be my luck day. I was half looking forward to push starting the Subaru, but I'm glad it didn't need to happen. After a handful of interrogations, I learned that the light was on for a few hours prior to me seeing it. Tragedy averted.
