First Subaru 1998 Legacy GT

Hi Guys, My name is Jay I'm new to the forum and a first time Subaru owner!!!
209k, a little wear and tear, but I plan on treating her right!!!
I have had the car for about a month. I haven't registered it yet so it's been sitting. I start it once a week. Yesterday when I went to start wouldn't turn over. the battery wasn't dead, but there wasn't enough juice to start. Jumped started it and let it run for a bit. I couldn't drive it so the battery really couldn't charge, but after turning the car off I noticed that the power windows and sunroof still had juice to them minutes later. I'm thinking that this has to do with the battery drain.

Anyone know what would cause this problem?

Drain on the battery. Or Battery could be weak too (loses its charge after sitting for a while)

It takes a lot of energy to turn over a motor, and very little to use the windows. hence why the windows can work but cant start the car.

Welcome. White is such an awesome color on any year Subaru.

Welcome! Know how new the battery is? Hope it's not the alternator causing you issues.

Welcome to the site.

Try posting in the Second Generation forum, hopefully one of those second gen enthusiasts can help you figure out the problem.
