There could be a hundred causes for a check engine light. First step is to hook up a computer scan tool and see what codes the computer has. The next step depends on the codes.

2006 subaru outback check engine light and cruise control light blinking


after this mileage the probable cause is the smoke sensor in exhaust it has to be replced and the error should be cleared by car scaner if you don't want to replace the sensor you can clean it it is located on the exhauste pipe but however you still need to visit a car technician to clear the fault from the computer log of the car

Service engine light blinking


As we all have done since 1981 --some 32 years now

CHECK FOR CODES--first & every time you get a check light

Blinking verse steady is not always good

Slow shift into overdrive


No, the 2 problems are not related, the SAI pump has no function while driving. Do not "flush" your transmission unless you want problems. Just change the filter and replace fluid with Dexron 6. Many people have had tranny problems with our platform after a full "flush". Your throttle position sensor may have problems, have it checked out for the shifting issues. Remember, the TPS is attached to the throttle body, not removable. Must replace whole throttle body, IF that's your issue.

What is the best motor oil and oil filter to use on my 04 beetle turbo?


I would use a Phram oil filter, but the oil you chose is up to you. Personally, I use Chevron RPM oil and have five vehicles and two of them have more than 200,000 miles on them.

My daughter went with Quacker State and we had to replace her engine after 72,000.

The secret is not which oil filter or what oil. Just checking making sure you don't get low and that you replace it every 3,000 miles.

Engine Collant, ABS & Brake lights on CC/cig. lighter not working


Replace coolant level sensor in radiator. The wheel sensor may be the abs problem. You will need to hook to a diagnostics tool to find the cure. Check vac hoses to cruise unit for leak.

Engine light stay on and off 1995 VW Jetta GLS


It's just bad timing. Aftermarket radios have nothing to do with cruise control. Cruise control is attached to your cable line for your pedal near your throttle. It'a normally a box attached next to it. That is running on the battery separately and maybe a sensor to warn if it's not working properly.
The radio factory radio, is attached to many sensors in cars. If you have one that worked with volume contols on steering wheel than you might of sparked a problem. If that is the case (where you could control factory radio on steering wheel), than all you need is to go to the dealer and ask them to reset your gauges and warning lights. let them know whats up. Might cost you nothing. Also when replacing certain parts, the cruise control might have been tampered with and doesnt work.Or has been detached. normally you will have a blinking light steady, blink and it disappears. But check with dealer for the reset.

After they have done this, check to see if it occurs again. If it does, than it might be a shorted out wire connecting one of the sensors from the large important parts you had replaced earlier and it was just result of coincidental timing.

especially when replacing timing belt and water pumps. Even mechanics make mistakes!
Good luck.
