TCS is traction control system, there must be a switch or a button somewhere to turn it on and off.As for the manual most good text book stores will be able to get one in for you.

I think you must come to nearest subaru service station and ask to mechanic there to reset the engine management unit and check electrical system at your subaru

I have a 2010 subaru forester that i cannot refuel when check engine light is on


Although I have never encountered this issue on my own 2010 Forester, I would say that this may be a fuel system problem with a sensor or component. The place to resolve this is at a Subaru service department.

My subaru forester flashes TCS light as i am driving it whats the problem


TCS is traction control system. It is a sensor that measures the quality of your traction with the road. If it is flashing, slow down and see if it stops. The problem is sometimes due to a faulty sensor and not the actual traction. J.

Engine hestitation, 2000 subaru forester


I think these codes are indicating a fault with your catalytic converter. The 02 sensors are each not returning the correct values to the ECM, causing a "suspect the 02 sensors" fault code.

P0420 on a 2000 Subaru Forester - I've had to replace the oxygen Sensor on this car about 3 times since the warranty expired. Prior to that it was covered by Subaru. They claim that the car was known for a...


P0420 is one of two things, it is either a catalyst failure (below threshold) or rear lambda.

The rear lambda should have a steady waveform when the engine is running if not then P0420 will be stored.

Cats and lambdas are very common on Subaru.

As the car is older than 2001 it does not come under R103 regulations therefore you could cut out the old cat and replace with a Carsound (Magnaflow) universal bullet. That will save you £££
The Subaru lambdas are now available aftermarket so try a motor factor, not the dealers.
If UK email me for info on where to purchase any of the above.

CHECK ENGINE FLASHES WHENEVER I DRIVE THE CAR.


The Check Engine light usually means the car has an emission system problem. Diagnosis requires an OBD2 scanner.

But first, check your gas cap. Is it loose? How good is the O-ring or gasket? A poor seal is the most common Check Engine cause.

Good luck.

Hi there,
you can get a manual at:

I suggest you get the car scanned by the dealer as it might tell you that therer is a fault registered by the computer.
