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.

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.

The powertrain control module (PCM) monitors the signal circuits of the cruise control switches in order to determine when to capture and maintain the selected vehicle speed. The PCM uses the throttle actuator control (TAC) module motor in order to control the vehicle speed. For further information on the TAC System, refer to Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System Description in Engine Controls - 4.2 L.

The PCM will engage and adjust vehicle speed based on the information received from the TAC module via the UART serial data link. For further information on the TAC system, refer to Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System Description in Engine Controls - 4.8L, 5.3L, and 6.0L.

Hi, the Check Engine light and the cruise light blinking tells you the computer found a problem with your vehicle's running condition but if the vehicle is driving OK, a Check Engine light is not a reason to pull over and get the problem fixed soon. In testing areas, you will fail your emissions test if the Check Engine light is on and fuel economy generally suffers when the Check Engine light is on. When the Check Engine light is on, one or more "trouble code(s)" are stored in the computer and you can read and erase trouble codes using inexpensive code-reader tools from auto-parts stores; the tools are very easy to use. The problems identified by the codes are frequently easy to fix (such as a loose gas cap), but some are complex, requiring professional diagnosis. A trouble code indicates a circuit where the problem was identified, not necessarily the component itself. Diagnosis is often necessary.

Not sure of your vehicle, if it's after year 1996, get the engine light scanned to see the error, that may be the cruise issue also.

the vdc off can result because the steering input sensor needs to be re calibrated with the nissan consult2 .
the vehicle dynamic control uses input from the abs,vehicle speed sensor,air bag sensor,yaw sensor and steering angle input sensor.

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.
