My boyfriend has a *** import 2000 Subaru Forester and check engine and TCS off keeps coming up on it. He didn't get a manual with the car so we can't check it. Does anyone know what it means or where we can get a manual for the car?

the TCS light will come on any time the check engine light comes on. Pull codes from the engines computer to see why the check engine light is on. Post the codes in the comments below and I'll do my best to assist you further.
The TCS light is on because the check engine
light is on this is common repair the check engine light failure abd the
tcs will go back to normal.
You need to check the code to see if it is a trans code and then if it falls under the bulletin limits Honda will replace the trans under warranty. Even if you are out of warranty Honda will sometimes do a partial warranty. Here's a copy of the Bulletin.
There are several things that will turn the check engine light and tcs light on .if you get the code I can tell you exactly what the problem is . on your year i see transmission problems as well as egr problems. if you go to any large auto parts store they will check the code for free or a very small fee.
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.
The TCS (Traction Control System) indicator comes on or flashes under the following conditions: When you turn the ignition switch to ON (II). When you manually turn off the TCS. It flashes when the TCS is regulating wheelspin. If the system's diagnostics senses a problem in the TCS, the indicator will come on and stay on. If the brakes overheat, the indicator will come on. If the TCS indicator comes on and stays on for more than 10 minutes while driving, pull to the side of the road when it is safe and turn off the engine. Reset the system by restarting the engine, and watch the TCS indicator. If the indicator remains on, or comes back on while driving, have the system inspected by your Honda dealer. You can still drive the vehicle without TCS. This indicator will come on along with the ABS indicator if there is a problem in the anti-lock brake system. The TCS indicator may occasionally come on for one or two seconds and then go out. This is normal.
I had the same code/symptoms a few weeks ago. Dealer did a nice job checking through all the details. Replaced the egr too, but no improvement. Finally found one cylinder not firing correctly (not the same pressure as the other cylinders.) Dealer did a value clean/adjustment, for about $250, and the problem has been gone for about a month now. We are also getting about 15% better mileage.
