Have the codes read. Check the brake fluid level. Wouldn't surprise me if low brake fluid doesn't kill the engine know days.

Why does my dashboard lights flash on and off when I break? battery and oil light turn on red before car shuts off. car will restart but shuts off again after driving a short while and repeats.


Have the check engine light scanned for codes related to this problem first. You may have a charging system issue causing low voltage resulting in the lights flashing/stalling.

Sounds like you need to find another mechanic. A dirty throttle wont cause a loss of power. Sounds like fuel pump to me, but you need to have a competent mechanic check the codes, and check the fuel pressure when its acting up.

What does it mean when the SLIP light comes on? While driving, all of a sudden the SLIP light, emergency brake lights and oil light comes on. Then the car dies and the power steering locks up. I then shut...


Our 2005 Nissan Quest does this exact same thing, but our check engine light is on also! We have taken it in and had the code checked and it said one of the cam shaft sensors was bad. We changed the one that was "bad" and had the code reset. If we put it into neutral and turn off the AC and radio and wait a few seconds we can usually restart it.

2006 Subaru Outback: all of a sudden, the cruis control kicked off, I had a ''check engine'' light, flashing ''sport'' light and flashing cruise light?? When I arrived home, I checked under the hood...oil...


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)...

1997 subaru outback "check engine light" on for 6 months


try disconnecting the + positive terminal for a few minutes and see if it goes out most likely the 02 sensor needs replacing ...however low fluid levels may also contribute to this oil,brake fluid etc.

Engine suddenly revs when stopped & @ idling


sounds like one of the metal arms connected to the engine may be getting stuck some how. have someone get in car and press on gas when car is off while you watch engine to see what is moving, then check those arms to see if there is any possible obstructions or knicks or something on them

ABS light and Check engine lights are on.


First you should drive over to your auto parts store and have them tell you what codes come up so I can be of better help. AutoZone and Advance both do this for free. I don't want to give poor info, or offend your repair person before knowing what codes come up. Just let me know and I will se if I can help you. Have a good day.

Message system reads "engine system maintenance required"


WHAT HAPPENED IS WHEN YOU SHUT DOWN AND RESTARTED YOU (RESET THE ENGINE MANAGEMENT COMPUTER) AND THE SERVICE LIGHT SHOULD GO OUT AFTER 10 MINUTES OF DRIVING
