I think you should see a dealer as repairing this problem will almost certainly require airbag removal and using the related electrical and safety procedures. Not saying that you couldn't do it if you had the factory manual but without it you can break expensive little parts and throw an SRS code that you'll probably need the dealer to void. Sorry.

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

On my 1999 Subaru Outback, the horn beeps after I lock using the keyless remote. The problem is intermittent - hard to tell when it is going to happen. It gives two short beeps (Beep......Beep) then


This is a tough one, it sounds like the alarm is arming itself when you lock the door, the alarm system is arming , there is a way i think to cancel out the horn chrip, the only other thing is the door lock is bad or the alarm module is going bad. Did the horn always chrip or beep before and do you know if the alarm works?

198 honda accord ex if horns sounds, shorts out cruise control and brake lights. This happens when I manually sound the horn or the alarm does. Any ideas?


This is a tough one, if a horn itself was shorted, it wouldn't sound.Try unhooking both horns, and try to activate it from the steering wheel. If the brake light´s fuse still burns, at least you know that there is a short in the cabling leading to the horns. If the fuse doesn't trip, then one of the horns should be the culprit.

CHECK TO SEE IF BRAKE LIGHT WORKING.BECAUSE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH DEACTIVATE CRUISE CONTROL WHEN BRAKES APPLIED.MOST TIME IF YOU HAVE CRUISE CONTROL PROBLEMS FAULTY BRAKE LIGHT WILL CAUSE CRUISE CONTROL PROBLEMS.

Eml and traction control and cruise lights on been told it's an oxy sensor how do you tell which one is crook ???


There is a lot of talk about this subject on blog pages. You need a scanner to tell which sensor, but I read that a lot of the issues are due to failing catallitic converters. They are expensive for a subaru. (And yes it will disable cruise control) I would get more of a detailed recommendation instead of just replacing parts. Get it scanned by someone who know subaru's.

sounds like you have a aftermarket system installed,this is most likely interfaced with the subaru keyless,this system needs to be removed to diagnose,i believe the aftermarket system is causing the concern,i've seen many problems arise with these components

Lost keys,had new ignition installed. Alarm goes off/door is unlo


I think your model vehicle is subject to 2 recalls. The first is to have the ECM reprogrammed and the second is for a cruise control clip. Both of these recalls exist for sure and may be a good place to start. You can check on "MySubaru.com (you will have to register) to see if your vehicle is affected. If the ignition was replaced having the ECM reprogrammed and the keys programmed might fix the issue. May fix the cruise control as well.

Battery


I've had this exact problem before when being jumped off. The fob DOES NOT make it stop. We removed the fuse that goes to the horn. As soon as your battery gets recharged from the alternator, the fob will work again and the alarm will quit sounding. The only pain about removing the fuse is that the cruise control will not work until you put it back.
