Hi and welcome to FixYa!

It's definitely a cruise control relay failure. If the relay is faulty issues like this occurs. But before replacing the relay I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector. Let it sit for atleast 5mins. then reconnect it again. Go for a few runs and observe if the cruise control is working again. Removing the positive battery connector will reset the system and may get the car back to it's normal operation.

If it still doesn't help then it's definitely the relay.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My 2007 Outback is showing the check engine light and a flashing cruise control light. This is at startup, but they do not go off. Any ideas?


you have a code set in one of the computers that needs to be checked to know what has to be done to fix.

2005 Subaru Outback. Trip odometer suddenly said Err 55, cruise control started flashing, ABS lit up, and check engine light had come on. I noticed a day later that the regular odometer had frozen,


I found this under Fixya; 2006 Subaru Outback; there were 25 answers: The problem is not with an emission issue as you would expect with a check engine light. The ER 55 code on the odometer means that there is a loss of communication with the ECU, that is why the check engine light is on and cruise light flashing. for what ever reason whenever your check engine light comes on the cruise becomes disabled. Lame I know. I work in the service department and have seen this issue a lot. The only real way to fix this issue is to go the dealer and have them do a reflash for your vehicle. If the ECU is bad it is covered under the federal emmission wrty for 8 years or 80,000 miles

I have "Subaru Outback" 2008. "Check Engine"is on


P0420 Usually indicates a bad catalytic converter or a bad oxygen sensor. Since you car is 2008 my money is on the oxygen sensor. Or it could be something as simple as an exhaust leak. The cruise control will keep flashing until you get the CEL fixed

05 outback p2009 code and cruise control light flashing


Hello,

I am unable to find a P2009 code. The closest I have come across is a P2109 which is:

THROTTLE/PEDAL POSITION SENSOR "A" MINIMUM STOP PERFORMANCE

Which will usually be accompanied by:
  • Improper idling.
  • Poor driving performance.
  • Engine stalls.
Also the "Cruise" light will always flash when the Check Engine light is on with these later models, but it does not mean there is a concern with the Cruise control. The diagnostic checks for these cars require the SDS: Subaru Diagnostics System.(A laptop computer with Subaru specific diagnostic software). These concerns are unfortunately not easy to diagnose w/out Subaru dealership resources. I hope this info helps.

Abs light on, cruise control and engine light 2007 subaru outback


55 EGR Temperature Sensor or Circuit

ABS light is nothing to do with code 55 separate fault circuits.

Under dash there are two wires with mini spades at the end, connect one of them to the single black multiplug in position 2. Thats RHS plug inlet when you hold plug with tab lock on top.
ABS sensor should then flash up error coded. Ignore code 11 thats a initial flash to let you nknow the difference between a fast and slow flash.

Let me know what code flashes up and I will tell you the symptom,

ABS Light and Check Engine Light on, Cruise light flashing


I had this occur on my 2007 Subaru Tribeca. ABS, Traction Control, Check Engine lights were solid, Cruise Control light was blinking and "Er SS" (commonly misread as Er 55) displayed on Trip Odometer. All lights were cleared after 10 or so miles. It appears this is a Speed Sensor (SS) reading error whereby the computer notices an irregularity with the readings taken from the four wheels. Most often it is a temporary and harmless glitch and sometimes a result of debris that is impeding the sensor's reading at one of the wheels.
