Go to your local auto parts store and let them know that you have a check engine light on. They will tell you the code and do some research before you make any purchase for parts. Contact a Subaru dealer about the codes.

(I own a Premium XS and it done this a couple months ago. Engine light and and cruise control lights started Flashing
