2010 subaru forester engine cuts out


consider this
when at the stop lights , you will have your foot on the brake as it will still be in drive or in gear and you don't want the car to move
a simple test is to apply the hand brake to stop the car and don't touch the foot brake
if it idles ok but cuts out when you apply the foot brake , replace the brake booster as it has a vacuum leak that is causing the problem
you can do this test in the garage by starting in neutral and allowing the engine to idle , then apply the foot brake
iof it dies it is the booster

How to reset abs light in a subaru forester


The ABS light on your vehicle will self-reset, once the condition causing the light to illuminate is rectified.
Reasons for the ABS light coming on are:
  1. Worn brake pads;
  2. Worn calipers (beyond tolerance);
  3. Defective ABS unit;
  4. Low brake fluid level;
  5. Defective master cylinder;
  6. Brake fluid leak.
It is important that whatever condition is causing the ABS light to illuminate is corrected as soon as possible, as it indicates a potential hazardous condition exists with your vehicle.

Horn not work on subaru forester


Their is no connection between your antilock brake system [abs] and your horn. Most of the time when the abs light goes on the problem is in the sensor and not the abs. Regarding the horn, I would check the fuse that controls the horn. look in your owner manual for the fuse diagram and replace that fuse with a new one the same amperage.

Antilock brake light is on.and there is a constint


Grinding and squeeling, sounds like you need brakes and possibly rotors. If you can't do it yourself you might have to take in to get it fixed. The light comes on cause its letting you know that the ABS won't work but your regular braking system will.Check fulid level and brake pads and rotors.
