Have you checked the fuel filter or fuel pump? possibly the crankshaft sensor?

1992 Subaru legacy wagon will not shift up from first gear. it is an AT.

run the fault but all you describe is operated from the VSS sensor ( vehicle speed sensor)
it tells the cruise control the vehicle speed , tells the TCM the vehicle speed so that ratios can be changed, activates the speedo,and will report with a check engine light to report a transmission problem
run the fault codes first

Subaru legacy 2.0 re mk iv engine management light on and cruise control light flashing? cruise control has stopped working!

You have a vacuum leak check under the hood for a black plastic bulb that has a small vacuum hose and a small linkage going to the throttle body. That small hoe probably bad.

My all wheel drive subaru is now a fwd only. cruise control quit working I pulled the cruise fuse put it back in. the cruise and awd drive worked for about ten minutes then stopped working again. I am at...

Check that the cruise control module fuses are not blown in the fuse panel. Also make sure your stop lights are working; cruise controls are designed to disengage when the brakes are applied, and one method of sensing that is to monitor brake light current.

then reset your four wheel drive again

1993 subaru legacy brake lights do not work. Bulbs and fuse are fine. How can I test the brake light switch? PS: this legacy has cruise control, so the BL switch manages that, too.

simple test light to the stop light switch mounted just above the brake pedal. power in one side push down on the pedal and power should come out the other wire.

CEL, flashing cruise control and vehicle dynamics controll OFF lights on Subaru Tribeca

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.
