I have a 2012 Subaru Outback and WHILE DRIVING, with cruise control engaged, all of idiot lights came on and cruise control disengaged? I pulled over,the car never died. All lights are still on?
ground to earth
All the warning lights are lit? Shut it off. Could be a stuck relay, or charging system issue. But if the oil light is on, shut it off. Get a technician's help.
Angie, just curious, how many miles are on your car? I presume you are not the original owner?
Hey, got one more question for you? Did this happen shortly after refueling ? I read on another post that someone's lights started blinking and their gas cap was loose. Interesting.
There's been no word for 3 weeks about a relay or a auto computer issue, oe even a harness or water entry issue. when warning systems have malfunction, the may or may not be telling of an actual issue, or both. I saw the story as a guy invested a few thousand in a late model pontiac/oldsmobuick, and ended up selling it.due to misunderstood electrical. He could have read several sites on google and fixed it without buying a truckload of guess parts, an automotive database and its info is more correct, and your dealer is most correct. The pontiac had slightlylow brake fluid and a recall on the ign. switch, and was not properly maintained. You have to get your info from a more trusted source. Allow them to check it, etc.
You're correct, but, it's interesting that the original poster went radio silent, not answering any of your earlier questions. Kind of hard to believe that there are this many problems with a 2012 vehicle? Maybe the car was not properly maintained? Or, someone just beat this car up with excessively high miles really fast?
i was thinking about a wet chime module I once had, a circuit stuck in continuity when the controls had it off, just takes dampness and enough condensation to make a few drips on the module, it is not expected to endure body drain blockage and the resulting water entry. Or vehicles where the twist of a certain roads or set of roads in a region results in body flex and warning systems react, noone can figure what they are being warned to do? that was a highlander. I think they found theirs and understand now it can be alternator circuits linked to other warning lights at a common relay or chime.
