Question about 2006 Subaru Outback
2006 Subaru Outback AWD - ABS light and check engine light have come on in snowy conditions. In addition the "cruise" light is flashing. The trip odometer was showing "Er 55" until I shut the engine off. When I turned the engine back on, the only difference was the "Er 55" mesage did not show on the trip odometer.
I have a lot of ice buildup under the car behind the front wheels. Before I noticed the problem noted above, I was in some deep snow and had spun the wheels a bit before creeping out.
An addition to my previous post (after talking to my husband more). Three of our wheels were snow packed. Not the wheel wells, but the inside of the wheels. He thinks that this is what caused the problem. The ABS sensors are located there. Having them encased in snow was likely what caused this condition. Solution = clean all the snow off your tires -- and the problem should go away. Sounds like the problem is moisture gets into the ABS sensor or something shorts out with the communications to those sensors.

2006 Subaru Liberty 3.0 Blitzen, 52,000kms. It's unbelievable, both my low beams went out at once and when I checked it was both the globes had gone at once. Never has this happened on any other vehicle before, I've ordered a HID conversion kit over the net, hope that works well.
