The cruise control always blinks disables with the check engine light. If you have over 100K miles on it, it's possible that the CAT converter needs to be replaced. There was a software update done to 08 and 09 models that had to do with how it used the fuel and included extending the warranty on CAT converters due to this problem. Check with your Subaru dealer about this.
