Question about 1998 Subaru Forester
When that light flashes it normally means there is an electrical malfunction in the transmission. The best thing to do is have the codes read. This will require a scan tool, not just a code reader like the parts stores have. The code will lead to the actual problem. I would suggest checking the fluid level to make certain that is not the problem,however, it is likely more then that.
Also try resetting the ecu resetting ECU on all foresters : Unhook the battery and touch the positive and negative cables together for 3 minutes. This will clear the capacitors in the ecu. If the light is still flashing there, then have it scanned.At www.autozone.com its free to get car scanned./
