Why does the remote flash blue on the wii?

The flashing blue lights on the wiimote means the wiimote is sending a signal to find and synchronize with a local Wii console. Whenever the wiimote does not find a powered-on wii console that it is synchronized to, the wiimote will only flash blue lights for a short time. Only when the wiimote connects to a Wii console will the flashing stop and keep one light on to indicate what player the wiimote is controlling. Furthermore the flashing lights also indicate how much battery life remains. Four flashing lights indicates full battery life while one flashing light means very low battery life.

Why did your 1995 Subaru drain the battery?

Depends on if it drained while you were driving or ran down while it was parked overnight. If the battery runs down while you're driving the vehicle then more than likely the alternator is defective. If the battery drains while the vehicle is parked then the problem is either a dead cell in the battery or a light is on somewhere on the vehicle. Could be a under hood light, trunk, glovebox, dome, or even the brake lights. It can also be a relay that is stuck.
