2011 outback lights on

Asked by Subaru1981 Nov 03, 2019 at 10:55 AM about the 2011 Subaru Outback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So after spending $230 to turn off the lights
(brake, skid, check engine, Cruise) I was told it
needed a new catalytic convertor & brake
sensor costing approximately  $2000! After a
quick computer check the tech said it may not
be the brake sensor due to a battery voltage
problem! The dash lights are on 1 day off the
next! I also find it interesting that when the
dash lights are off it acts like there is a belt
slipping & makes a little squeal but when the
dash lights are back on it stops. It continues
to go back and forth! HELP!!!!
I’m reluctant to spend the money on it after
reading all of this. I feel like the answers I got
at the dealership were wishy washy

You went to a stealership? Turning off the light does Nothing! You must fix the problem to make it go off and stay off. Find another Subaru mechanic before spending more money on your car and get another opinion.
