Check engine light on traction control light on cruise light blinking whats wrong?


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!

2006 subaru outback check engine light and cruise control light blinking


after this mileage the probable cause is the smoke sensor in exhaust it has to be replced and the error should be cleared by car scaner if you don't want to replace the sensor you can clean it it is located on the exhauste pipe but however you still need to visit a car technician to clear the fault from the computer log of the car

Check engine light is flashing and cruise quit working


DO NOT DRIVE IT.....Driving it when the check engine is flashing may cause a simple problem to become a major problem if not fixed right away. Cruise control will always disable when the check engine light is on, when cleared, it will work again. Blinking light means serious malfunction, needs to be repaired right away. This can be many things, from simple multiple cylinder misfire, to something more serious.

Engine light has come on with cruise control light blinking


Not sure of your vehicle, if it's after year 1996, get the engine light scanned to see the error, that may be the cruise issue also.

It is safe to drive your car. What happened was you have a Check engine light on indicating a problem with the emission diagnostic system. This also makes your cruise not work, and the light to blink. Take your car to your dealer at your convienence and have them diagnose it.

Possible solution to original question related to cruise control. The 'mechanic' may have bumped and misaligned the sensor for the cruise control.
