SOURCE: Check engine light came on

I did end up taking my car to the dealership where I bought it. They were great! He knew immediately what the problem was. Of course, they still did a thorough check too.
Anyway, it turned out that the plug to the electronic system had been knocked loose. This caused the check engine light to come on & the cruise control to not work (you were right, if the check engine light is on, cruise doesn't work). As for the door, that was simply the switch plate needing to be adjusted.

SOURCE: ABS Light and Check Engine Light on, Cruise light flashing

I had this occur on my 2007 Subaru Tribeca. ABS, Traction Control, Check Engine lights were solid, Cruise Control light was blinking and "Er SS" (commonly misread as Er 55) displayed on Trip Odometer. All lights were cleared after 10 or so miles. It appears this is a Speed Sensor (SS) reading error whereby the computer notices an irregularity with the readings taken from the four wheels. Most often it is a temporary and harmless glitch and sometimes a result of debris that is impeding the sensor's reading at one of the wheels.

You might try removing the battery connectors for five minutes and replacing back.

If the codes do not disappear, please you might have to get a scanner to do that.

Cheers.

Take the car to Autozone or similar business for a free code read with a scanner. Depending on what turns up, they will be happy to sell you any needed parts.

Check engine light flashing running ruff


Go local Autozone and ask to read OBD error code for free.
or buy any cheap code reader/scanner for now and future use ($30 to $1000. $30 is enough)
It's called "OBD scanner" or "OBD code reader".

Other than that, nobody can tell you what was/is wrong with your car.
BTW, OBD error codes are different by manufacture and year/model.
after you buy code reader, google it with your year/make/model.
or Autozone reader may tell you in plain English (other than P0125, B0432, etc)

Check engine light is flashing


Check engine light means that the car's computer (OBD-on board diagnostics)has read a fault of some sort. First thing I would do is get the fault code read-Auto Zone or Advance Auto will read your OBD for free. Just go there and tell them your check engine light is on-they'll know what to do, and it's free. Once you get that code (should be a 4 digit code, possibly more than one), do a Google search for your year, make and model and include that fault code-that should give you some results that can point you in the right direction.

You may have actually had a faulty MAP that needed replace. Thing is that any time you get a "check engine", the cruise will be disabled. you must clear the code, by either a trouble code diagnostic tool, or disconnect the battery for about five minutes. Codes will clear, and cruise will start working again.

Engine light fr ash 10 time


what your check engine light is doing is called the key dance.

The "Key Dance" is a coined term to identify a process of reading MIL fault codes stored by your cars engine computer (PCM). You cycle your ignition key from off to on (not start) 3 times leaving it on. You then count the number of times the Service Engine Soon light flashes. This combination of flashes identifies a fault code. For example, a code 21 would be flash, flash, pause, flash. All codes are 2 digits. Multiple codes are seperated by longer pauses. It should end with a code 55 indicating the process is finished.

Sometimes in newer models, the code is shown on the trip odometer. They would be P codes.

I would pull out my obd code reader and find out what it's telling me. Some parts places (Autozone, O'Reilys, etc) would even have a code reader you could borrow to check for any obd codes.
