Hoping someone can help me.
2015 Outback Limited 2.5 w/eyesight.
44,000 miles, and one dead deer.

Hit a deer last week, which caused the driver and side curtain airbags to deploy, as well as the seatbelt retractors to fire.

Other than the airbag warning light, car ran as normal immediately after and for the 25 mile drive back to town, as well as to the body shop the next day. (No other warning lights)
When the shop estimator started it on to get mileage on the inspection form, also no warning lights except the airbags.

However, when I went to drive it around into their yard, the dash began showing a plethora of error lights.
Eyesight, blind spot detection, traction control, X-mode, etc.

Shop has done the repairs.
Airbags and seatbelts have been replaced as well as body damage, but errors are not clearing.

According to the shop, the computer is currently reporting a ground fault error in the driver seat(seatbelt?) and lost communication errors from the various sensors.

Shop is thinking that replacing the seatbelt latches (on the front seats) is going to fix it, but I don't understand how that is going to help.

Any ideas?
TIA.

bmwzenrider,

Because the Eyesight and blind spot errors are coming up, I think you'll find that only a Subaru dealership will be able to get to the bottom of the errors.

Its reported that subies with Eyesight that need windshields replaced, have to return to the dealership to recalibrate/realign the cameras, etc. Maybe yours received a hard enough hit that it has jarred the system. And since the system is unique to Subaru, they'll be the only ones with the Subaru Select Monitor to correct it. I don't know for certain if this is your issue, but I believe that only a subie tech can solve it. Good Luck!

Most often, when I see multiple fault indicator lights, they are the result of a single failure.

Without knowing what faults your technician is seeing, it's pretty tough to offer any insight into what the cause is.

Good luck. A competent technician should be able to get to the bottom of it without too much trouble
