Question about 2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca

Open Question

CEL, flashing cruise control and vehicle dynamics controll OFF lights on Subaru Tribeca

Please help...while driving I noted 3 of the lights came on my 2007 Subaru Tribeca: 1. CEL, VDC OFF and flashing cruise control ON.
I did not experience difference in driving, but have to drive home about 80 miles, so I am concerned. Lights did not go off after stopping, turning off the engine and re-starting the car.
anyone??? I was in a lot of snow for a week and came back to have three lights randomly turn on the next day - Flashing cruise control, traction control and check engine. Just left it with the mechanic to do a computer check and am bringing it to the dealer this weekend (just bought it a month ago). I heard this happens if there's a driver side door leak?

    2008 wrx near 5000 miles, got all the same lights while doing 65-70 on the freeway; engine performance seemed to decrease slightly, but that might have just been in my head since once the dash lit up like a christmas tree i drove it quite softly.

Why would engine light,cruise control and abs light come on?


hello,do post your DTC'S,(diagnostic trouble codes) and may be i can help.many modern vehicles spring up a multitude of warning icon's on the dashboard,much to the alarm of it's owner,however,often it can be as simple as a dirty wheel speed sensor,which fails to provide the necessary information to the main (ABS/TRACTION control unit) and so then will inhibit the cruise control,as naturally it's unable to ascertain road wheel speed,and also throw up the engine management light,as the braking/traction control systems unable to supply correct information to the main engine computer(ECU,OR PCM) electronic control unit/power control module. hope this helps,but please supply any further information that you can,regarding your DTC'S, that are read out,try to get a full print off,if at all possible, 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.

CEL, flashing cruise control and vehicle dynamics controll OFF lights on Subaru Tribeca


It is safe to drive your car. What happened was you have a Check engine light on indicating a problem with the emission diagnostic system. This also makes your cruise not work, and the light to blink. Take your car to your dealer at your convienence and have them diagnose it.
