    I am still under the assumption this is a purely electrical problem. All lights, including the traction control, check engine, and the cruise light flashing are all tripped or set at the same time. I have been resetting the ecm by disconnecting the battery. The miss or skip is only intermittent and does not occur untill the check engine light as well as the others are set. It currently it takes approx. 3 miles before this happens and will idle for extended periods with no problems.

    Why would the wheel senser set the check engine light? Are not the wheel speed sensers a BCM sensor? And why would the "skip" only happen after the lights are set?

  • eljoneson Mar 12, 2011

    I have checked the the ground connections that I could find: the main battery gnd. located near the starter, the main battery body ground near the starter, and 1 small gage aprox 18 gage braided uninsulated ground strap located on the passenger side near the bottom of the engine near the front. I have allso checked the main and secondary positive connections battery to starter, batery to fuse panel main fuse connection all are tight and in good shape

    I was not able to find a solution with your recommendations and had to hire a different online expert at answer.com (Subaru expert) to find a suitable solution, and the problem is now fixed. Therefore I'm not accepting the answers you have provided. Thank you for trying.

There is a lot of questions here so i will start with the codes P0028 & P0026 both are verable valve timing codes first we should talk about how this system works, the engine is equiped with veriable valve lift units that when oil is pushed into the units they push on the camshaft, basicaly they roll the shafts in there saddles witch changes the lift and duration of the camshaft this is done to maxamise the performance of the engine, basickly alowes the engine to be tuned down at low RPM and load but when there is a demand for power the cames are advanced to give the engine more power. when we see these codes the mose common problem is the engine has not been serviced reguarly and their is gunk built up in the oil passages to the veriable valve units, most of the time changing the oil and adding some addative like marvel mistery oil will fix the problem, if not then you may have to replace the veriable valve lift units.

the skip under load might be the verable valve units advanceing one cam and not the other, this would cause a surge and maybe an engine miss fire, but i would change the spark plugs as will as the oil ( it never hurts to replace the plugs ) but make sure to use what the factory used don't chepen it up spend the few extra dollers to get the right plugs.

the check engine light is the verable valve units.

now the flashing cruse and the TCL these are most likely related, and you should be able to get a code from the BCM that will leed you down the right path, but best guess is a speed sensor is not working, all 4 wheel have to be within 1% of each other or the cruse will not work, and the TC wont work and probly the ABS.

its a lot of info but i hope this helps.

    the reason that the lights don't come on untill you are driving the car is because when it is sittin still the wheel sensors are not moving, this info make me think eaven more that you have a bad wheel sensor this would cause the cruse light, TC light and check engine light. the skip is still probley the camshaft valves ( change the oil )

  • john nail
    john nail Mar 12, 2011

    the wheel sensors are use by both the BCM and ECM the BCM uses them for the ABS and TC the ECM uses them for the spedo, and transmission shifting and the control for the all wheel drive you did not tell me the skip was only when the lights were on...have you had any work done on the car? you might want to check all the ground straps and conectors were they atchies to the engine block

  • john nail
    john nail Mar 12, 2011

    sounds like you have covered the bases on the grounds, i still think the skip is the verable valve units, and you never know when the engine is skipping it can make the electronis do strange things, go after the the codes and after that is fixed then reset every thing and start over on the other lights.

Need to know code p0028 is making. Check engine. Light stay on and engine will not idle


code p 0028 refers to intake valve control solenoid circuit , bank 2 ---range performance problem===causes--wiring ---intake valve control solenoid
this solenoid controls the advance / retard of the valve timing for the inlet valve camshaft and will account for the idle problem and the engine light
take it to an accredited service center who has experience on your make of vehicle and have the wiring checked or the solenoid replaced

2005 Neon engine light came on and stays on. Car drives okay. Has around 34,000 miles. No other problems


Take it to Autozone or Advanced auto and get an engine diagnostic and ask them to printout the results. Most times it's a sensor.

Diagnostic test P0026 Solenoid Intake


the test will show as many problems/codes as are present in the memory of the PCM. (power train control module) If u were charged for this repair he or she did not do the job of diagnosing the code properly, they guessed, the reason for this is only the dealer has the correct equip to work on your Subaru and try and get it fixed right the 1st time, that is why dealer costs are higher, tech training and lots of expensive test gear.
