    I have the exact same problem. Re-tightened the gas cap... didn't help. Switched ignition key to acc and lock and on and lock and acc and on and that didn't help. Did it according to the manual. Undid both battery cables to the 12 volt car battery, that didn't help. HELP ! No cruise now ! Engine light still on !

I did end up taking my car to the dealership where I bought it. They were great! He knew immediately what the problem was. Of course, they still did a thorough check too.
Anyway, it turned out that the plug to the electronic system had been knocked loose. This caused the check engine light to come on & the cruise control to not work (you were right, if the check engine light is on, cruise doesn't work). As for the door, that was simply the switch plate needing to be adjusted.

I took it the car to wal mart and the kid there hooked up the computer to it and said it was the gas cap being left open or not tightened enough. He reset the trouble code with the hand held computer/code reader and I was right back down the road with no problems. Have put over 400 mile on car since and no problems. Thanks Subaru for building a simple car that doesn't have stupid problems all the time................ note the sarcasm in my voice.........

I had the same exact problem and just got it fixed. I have a 2007 Impreza Outback Sport and the check engine light came on and the cruise flashed (this is a safety feature when check engine comes on your cruise is disabled). The light would stay on until I would fill up again. It would happen once every tank of gas. I just took in for oil change and dealer replaced the catalytic converter. Could be same problem.

I have had the same problem but not from the oil change but a dodgy batch of fuel, try filling up with some good quality Premium fuel and the light should go out and the cruise light will stop flashing

Hello, whenever the check engine light comes on the cruse light will flash as well, that is normal. The check engine light will not come on if fluid levels are low or if the temp is getting to high, I am pleased to know that you checked all of the fluids, most wouldn't have even the slightest thought to even try checking them. The On Board Diagnostics or OBD-2 for short only sets a check engine light when the ECM or Electronic Control Module reads a sensor value either too high or too low, but it has to read that same fault 3 consecutive times in a row to turn on the check engine light (w/ flashing cruise). Otherwise your check engine light would be going on and off all the time. I would go to your local parts store and have them check the codes for free because a dealer will have to charge you labor for them to check due to the knowledge needed to use the highly sophisticated scan tool they use. That way you can go either to an independent shop or a dealer with what the other scanner says is wrong which cuts down on the cost of repairs. They will probably ask you if you fueled up just before the engine light came on, in which that would be code P0440:EVAP leak(very small leak), that means the fuel tank sensor doesn't like how you put the fuel cap on. Subaru recommends AT LEAST 3 clicks when tightening your fuel cap. But until that code is checked you won't know whats wrong, if nothing went boom or bang you'll probably be ok. If it does end up being a fuel cap leak, then just loosen the cap put it back on and just make 1 full revolution, and just keep driving it. The light will go off within 3 full warm up cool down cycles or (drive cycles). I hope this info helps...(subyguru)...

You might try removing the battery connectors for five minutes and replacing back.

If the codes do not disappear, please you might have to get a scanner to do that.

Cheers.

It probably is the converter. The check engine light has nothing to do with maintenance at all, nor does it really directly concern the engine. The check engine light comes on for emmission purposes. Such as converter, loose gas cap and all kinds of sensors.

Possible solution to original question related to cruise control. The 'mechanic' may have bumped and misaligned the sensor for the cruise control.
