Get the codes read at the parts store. Write down the trouble code number and post it here. Someone will advise the most cost effective solution. The CC and traction lights may have come on because the CEL is on.

It probably has something to do with the speed sensors.

I answered in more detail in another thread - but basically, the Subarus seem to be very sensitive to low oil pressure, and a dirty oil filter might be the only problem. Easy to buy a new one and find out!.

how do I know if the oil filter in Forester is dirty or not? Mine CEL turned on last week, and I changed the oil with new filter 5 months ago. I only put 80 miles/week on it.
