I have a 2006 Forester w/117,000 miles. The check engine light and flashing cruise control light came on, I disconnected the battery at other's suggestions, it came back on about 3 days later, I tried the gas cap trick, replaced the air filter and about every other thing that I have read online.
Check engine light, Traction Control, and the blinking cruise. I started to freak out and I came across this page on the forum. I read about the o2 sensor and stuff cuz I just got a invidia downpipe and mxp headers installed with a o2 bypass thingy. Sounded too complicated so i looked for another solution.

check engine light on and cruise control light flashing Problem occured this morning on way to work. Hoping Subaru can tell me something about this cruise control circuit. Cruise control would not activate after this occured. Owners manual said it may be due to my gas cap not being properly tightened after refueling. I'll try that to!
