Question about 2007 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport Wagon
I lost traction and my 07outback slid backwards down my driveway, about 100ft. When I finally stopped and was stuck, my cruise control was flashing, and my check engine light was on also.
use a scanner to check the abs system . most of the time the abs brakes and traction control system work together. your cruise control . unit has a servo motor .in front right fender well. check the fuse and relay also the cruise control brake release switch. and the brake light switch.if all is good you have a cruise control module problems. dealer ship job.

SOURCE: Traction Control comes on
I would recommend you have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes. You can get this done at no charge at your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts store.
Record the code numbers and reply back to this message and we can go from there.
Based on your description, I would guess you may have a HWSS ( hand wheel speed sensor) issue or possibly an ABS wheel speed sensor problem, again, this is only a guess until you have the codes read.
Let me know.

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.

If you are still stuck in the driveway, that's why the ABS light is still on. Get a snow shovel and dig the car out. Once you get the car on the road and all the wheels are turning the same speed the ABS light will most likely go off. It doesn't hurt anything to drive the car with the ABS light on. What that light is telling you is, the "Antilock Brake System" (ABS) is not working. The brakes will still work but, the antilock portion will not, so when you hit a icy patch, the wheels can lock during braking. The ABS senses the speed of all the wheels and if you have been spinning the wheel in the snow, it throws the system out of sychronization. Once you get out of the snow and you start to drive the light will go off, if the system is in working order. The light should go off in a block or two, if not stop the car shut the engine off and restart it. Try it again and see if the goes off, if not there's a problem with the system, get it to a shop.
