Check engine light and flashing cruise control 2006 Subaru Forester

Asked by Mar 05, 2017 at 02:35 PM about the 2007 Subaru Forester 2.5 X L.L. Bean Edition

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Followed the advice I read here.
Disconnected the negative terminal on the
battery for 30 mins, removed gas cap and
put it back on securely, turned ignition to
ACC for a few minutes. Then started car.
Both lights were gone! Thanks so much.
Glad I looked here first before going in to
the Subaru dealer.

The lights will be back on since you did not fix the problems that turned on the lights.

CEL will recur after 3rd restart IF there's an ongoing issue. Good luck.
