Had the same problem on my 2004 Forester XT. The condition happened after hard acceleration when the turbo kicked in. I just disconnected the battery for a brief moment and that fixed the problem. It never happened again. An easy fix eh? George from Toronto


That was not a "fix". All you did was erase the trouble code that caused the light to go on. Eventually it will probably warn of the same issue.
