How do I reset a solid engine light and flashing cruise light?

Asked by Aug 13, 2013 at 06:44 AM about the 2007 Subaru Forester 2.5 X

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have fitted a timing belt kit but in the process of removing the crank sprocket I bent one
of the teeth on the back plate that activates a sensor for the spark timing. The car ran with
a miss and the warning lights were activated. I stripped the covers back off to find the
tooth had broken off completely so i replaced it. It now runs fine but the warning lights
remain on, is there an easy way to reset them?

usually just a matter of removing the battery from the car for about 5-10 minutes or hook it up to a OBDII code reader and clear the fault codes, any parts store should have one you could use to clear the codes right in their parking lot..
