Engine and Cruise Control Light

I have a 2005 Subaru Outback with 179,000 miles on it. My engine and cruise control lights flash on and off…have been doing this for 6 months now…intermittently. My mechanic said the he cleared the computer and to wait and see if it happens again. He said that it might be the catalytic converter. The car runs fine whether or not the lights are flashing.

Did he happen to tell you what the codes were, or did he just clear them? If you have the codes, post them. If not, did he keep any records (probably not)?? See if your mechanic will pull the history, and post the actual codes.

Clearing the codes, without actually fixing anything, isn’t a fix. Most codes you don’t actually need to clear - they’ll clear on their own if you fix the problem.

Why did you post this again? Go back to your original thread where people have already responded.
