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.

Hey guys looking at buying an suburu forester 05-06 xt but when i took it for a test drive the engine light was on the owner said its on because the cruise control doesn't work is this true and how much...


This is a guess............. A nonfunctioning cruise control probably would not cause the check engine light to come on , however what ever is causing the check engine light to come on could be stoping the cruise control from working. Is the car a good deal ? Check engine light could be just about anything , even a loose gas cap. What you need to do is use the known problems to get the price down a bit , and then take the vehicle to a mechanic to scan for error codes. The codes tell him which part to replace. More often then not , the repairs are not too expensive.

Dead miss with flashing engine lamp also cruise lamp flashed during the event.


HAVE THE VEHICLE SCANNED FOR CODES AT AUTOZONE ( USUALLY FREE). THEN DO THE REPAIRS THE CODES REPRESENT.
CRUISE LITE IS PROBABLY A WHEEL SENSOR.

A MISS COULD BE A LOT OF DIFFERENT THINGS . MAY INVOLVE DOING CYLINER LEAKAGE AND INJECTOR BALANCE TESTING TO DETERMINE THE CAUSE.

2006 Subaru Outback: all of a sudden, the cruis control kicked off, I had a ''check engine'' light, flashing ''sport'' light and flashing cruise light?? When I arrived home, I checked under the hood...oil...


Hello, whenever the check engine light comes on the cruse light will flash as well, that is normal. The check engine light will not come on if fluid levels are low or if the temp is getting to high, I am pleased to know that you checked all of the fluids, most wouldn't have even the slightest thought to even try checking them. The On Board Diagnostics or OBD-2 for short only sets a check engine light when the ECM or Electronic Control Module reads a sensor value either too high or too low, but it has to read that same fault 3 consecutive times in a row to turn on the check engine light (w/ flashing cruise). Otherwise your check engine light would be going on and off all the time. I would go to your local parts store and have them check the codes for free because a dealer will have to charge you labor for them to check due to the knowledge needed to use the highly sophisticated scan tool they use. That way you can go either to an independent shop or a dealer with what the other scanner says is wrong which cuts down on the cost of repairs. They will probably ask you if you fueled up just before the engine light came on, in which that would be code P0440:EVAP leak(very small leak), that means the fuel tank sensor doesn't like how you put the fuel cap on. Subaru recommends AT LEAST 3 clicks when tightening your fuel cap. But until that code is checked you won't know whats wrong, if nothing went boom or bang you'll probably be ok. If it does end up being a fuel cap leak, then just loosen the cap put it back on and just make 1 full revolution, and just keep driving it. The light will go off within 3 full warm up cool down cycles or (drive cycles). I hope this info helps...(subyguru)...

Check engine light came on after oil change and cruise control light is flashing


I have had the same problem but not from the oil change but a dodgy batch of fuel, try filling up with some good quality Premium fuel and the light should go out and the cruise light will stop flashing
