When you have a check engine light come on, the traction control light and the cruise lights both come on as well. You need to have the codes checked with a scanner. There most likely isn't a problem with the traction control or cruise systems, the lights turn on because those systems work together with the engine management system or PCM. When there is an engine problem that sets a code that turns on the check engine light, it automatically disables the cruise control and traction control for safety reasons. Because the last thing you want is to have an issue with traction control and/or cruise control if your engine is having an issue, which is why they are disabled. The most common problem that turns on the check engine light is a loose, cross-threaded, or snug but not tight enough fuel filler cap. Subaru recommends three clicks of the cap to be considered tight. Also, any parts store can and will check and/or clear codes for free. I hope this info helps!
Actually FIXING the cruise control is usually not very hard. The hard part is finding out what is WRONG with the cruise control. Cruise control problems are usually caused by a broken clockspring (or contact assembly) in the steering column or a faulty cruise control servo assembly. Of course, there are several other possible reasons for the cruise to malfunction, but these are the most common.
The first step would be to scan your Engine Control Module (ECM) for fault codes. Please note that cruise control faults will not normally cause the Check Engine light to illuminate, so it is NOT safe to assume there are no codes present just because the light is not on. If the Check Engine light IS on, then you need to scan your ECM anyway! If there is a problem with the servo assembly, there will most likely be a code set. Problems with the clockspring will not usually set a code. A good clue that this could possibly be the problem is an inoperative horn and/or the Airbag warning light being on. (A broken clockspring will also cause these things)
I would check the ABS sensors on both sides.
Those are wires that fit on all wheels to give signal to the ECU for proper functioning of the car.
They might just put back the old ones for you . and they should have ben replaces
My 2002 x-type did the exact same thing on many occasions and had many repeated trips to the dealership. This problem was ultimately cased by cracked hoses in the car's vacuum system (which is used in the cruise control and brakes). Have the dealer check the vacuum lines and the breather hose (mine had completely collapsed). Chances are they are leaking and causing your car to "buck" and the cruise to not work. Don't ignore this as it will affect the functionality of your brakes too over the longer term.
When I went outside to start my Jaguar X-Type it was cold outside. I was in a hurry and didn't let the car warm up properly. It jumped a bit then the check engine light came on along with a message that said No cruise control. The no cruise light came off but my check engine light is still on. Any suggestions as to what it may be?
