2005 Subaru Outback, base model I think, automatic trans.
Hi, I am brand new to this forum so I don't know how this will be taken but I'll say it anyway. I have a 2005 Outback (base model I guess, auto transmission). Several years ago its Check Engine light and Cruise Control light came on simultaneously. The car was running fine so I ignored it. It went away after several rounds of stopping and starting over the following day or so. Same thing happened once last year and once this year. My friend's Forester has had this problem recently but the lights have now gone out. I checked a Forester forum for her and there were 15 pages of comments on this issue alone. Lots of people have gone to mechanics and have spent lots of money to fix it. I have not seen any comments saying the problem has been fixed for anybody permanently. I say ignore it, assuming your car is running fine. I'm wondering if this is a glitch purposely set up by Subaru to give Service at their dealers a lot of business! I'm also wondering if anybody with an Impreza has had this problem as I'm thinking seriously of buying one in the next year or so.
