e52 is telling you the battery was disconnected in the last X number of starts. It will probably go away after a day or two of ignition cycles. If the battery has been pulled then any other trouble codes would have been cleared and will not come back until they are re-detected, May have to drive it a bit to get any new codes to appear to help trace your problems.
I don't understand your question do you mean the car won't start or u loss power to the engine the only thing I can tell you if u go to autozone get free diag test tell me what the codes r then I can help you sorry but without codes I'm lost
When you have a check engine light come on, the traction control light and the cruise lights both come on as well. You need to have the codes checked with a scanner. There most likely isn't a problem with the traction control or cruise systems, the lights turn on because those systems work together with the engine management system or PCM. When there is an engine problem that sets a code that turns on the check engine light, it automatically disables the cruise control and traction control for safety reasons. Because the last thing you want is to have an issue with traction control and/or cruise control if your engine is having an issue, which is why they are disabled. The most common problem that turns on the check engine light is a loose, cross-threaded, or snug but not tight enough fuel filler cap. Subaru recommends three clicks of the cap to be considered tight. Also, any parts store can and will check and/or clear codes for free. I hope this info helps!
there is a code in the PCM that needs to be checked out. a light the stays on tells you this a flashing light tells you what ever the problem is can cause a running problem possible engine damage and is allowing the emissions to go out of range.
To begin with, the code numbers you listed are NOT valid OBD-2 Diagnostic Test Codes (DTCs). If you mean P0562, P0700, etc. then you need to post it like that so somebody can look it up.
Then, if your battery icon is staying lit after the engine has started, this is an indication that you have charging system problems. You need to fix any starting/charging system problems FIRST before trying to diagnose ANY computer fault codes. If there is a charging system problem, you cannot trust ANYTHING the computer tells you. Computers tend to babble incoherently when they delirious from a bad case of malnutrition.
Probably a failed idle air control or cold start valve.
If in the US or Canada, go to any chain auto parts store and ask them to do a code check on your car (free) and it will probably tell you which part has failed.
Service engine soon is telling you to check computer for trouble codes. You can sometimes disconnect battery for 10 seconds and codes will erase. It is a good idea to have them checked. Most Auto stores like Autozone will check for free. You may have to call around. Most repair shops will charge $40 to check.
have your alternator and battery check first, it is free at most big chain auto parts stores. Your check engine light system record problems in many sytems, it is also possible to have the auto parts store retrive the code, DO NOT ERRASE THE CODE UNTILL FIXED your mechanic will need them.
ok you service engine light is you computer telling you that something is not right.
try unhooking your negative on your battery ( that resets the codes) if this persists then invest in a code reader, let me know what codes come up
