Dash warning lights
Went to start the car last night and all the idiot lights were on. Brakes, check engine, cruise, traction control all on and some flashing. Any idea what might be wrong??
I pulled this off of the NASIOC Forum Not sure if it will help---Sounds like an alarm system is being triggered. Any chance your car could have an alarm installed that perhaps was only partly removed (e.g. doesn't sound horn/siren anymore)? If it was placed in an inactive mode, like valet mode, disconnecting and reconnecting the battery might very well have reset/reactivated it. Since 95% of aftermarket alarm "brains" are installed under the driver's side dash, I'd start looking there. Let us know what you find.--- Have you done any battery replacement or anything like that
Dash lights were all flashing..took to mechanic..they reset codes. Thought maybe parking brake got turned on during travel...hoping not computer
I have a 2010 Subaru Outback. First time it happened, about a year ago, found out the gas station didn't put the gas cap back on. It then happened again 2 months ago. Took it to my mechanic. He unhooked the battery terminals for about 5 minutes, then hooked them together for about a minute. It has happened again twice in the last 3 weeks. I have just unhooked the battery for a few minutes. It resets everything, but nobody seems to know why it keeps happening.
I had the exact same thing yesterday on my 2011 Outback when I started it up after work. Drove home, husband looked at it, turned it off and on a couple times and the lights cleared. Seems fine now.
