You need to get it scanned to find out what the issue is.
Tthe cruise control not functioning is a safety feature that saves the engine and transmission from possible damage due to the fault.

You have a vacuum leak check under the hood for a black plastic bulb that has a small vacuum hose and a small linkage going to the throttle body. That small hoe probably bad.

SOURCE: 2006 Subaru Outback: all of a sudden, the cruis

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)...

1992 Subaru legacy wagon will not shift up from first gear. it is an AT.


run the fault but all you describe is operated from the VSS sensor ( vehicle speed sensor)
it tells the cruise control the vehicle speed , tells the TCM the vehicle speed so that ratios can be changed, activates the speedo,and will report with a check engine light to report a transmission problem
run the fault codes first

Why are my rpms staying at 1000 when I'm going 40mph?


Does your RPM gauge only go to 1000 and not record anything higher? As far as your check engine...on the Subaru Legacy the check engine usually comes on when there is an issue with something within the emission control sensors...and typically it is an issue with the forward O2 sensor going into the Catalytic Convertor. As a safety feature, the vehicle's cruise control will not work when the check engine light is engaged and the light will flash intermittently. The repair of the forward O2 (oxygen) sensor should run about $150 - $200 to replace the sensor. As with the case with most sensors, you may not notice any performance difference in the vehicle operation but you should have it diagnosed and repaired when possible because overtime the operation can be impacted.

My all wheel drive subaru is now a fwd only. cruise control quit working I pulled the cruise fuse put it back in. the cruise and awd drive worked for about ten minutes then stopped working again. I am at...


Check that the cruise control module fuses are not blown in the fuse panel. Also make sure your stop lights are working; cruise controls are designed to disengage when the brakes are applied, and one method of sensing that is to monitor brake light current.


then reset your four wheel drive again

1993 subaru legacy brake lights do not work. Bulbs and fuse are fine. How can I test the brake light switch? PS: this legacy has cruise control, so the BL switch manages that, too.


simple test light to the stop light switch mounted just above the brake pedal. power in one side push down on the pedal and power should come out the other wire.
