    Check engine light, traction light on and cruise light blinking....Advice??

    Got a 2012 WRX with an Indivia Q300 catted downpipe and catback exhaust and Cobb SF intake with airbox. I have the Accessport V3 and did the Stage 2+SF 93 map and after 100 miles, the check engine light and traction control light came on along with the cruise control light blinking and all 3 came on at the same time. Also when running that map, it does not feel like the car is running correct especially when doing a 3rd gear pull around 3500 RPMs when it feels like it bogs down. Its also stalls occasionally when coming to a stop with the clutch all the way in. Any ideas or tips??

    Well...first of all sir...you need to use that AP to read the cell code that your engine is throwing. Then tell us what that code is and we can point you in the right direction hopefully

    Yeah I guess that would help out alittle...my bad. It's a P0172 - fuel system too rich bank 1. I did a datalog of the pull and sent an email to Cobb support but haven't heard back from them yet.

    Troubleshooting is the same as for PO171 provided your BPV is OK and you do not have a BOV..

    I don't have a bov and don't plan on putting one on after reading other threads about the troubles with them. Nothing appears to be wrong with the bpv.

    Ok then either wait for a response to your data logs or go through the PO171 checklist to troubleshoot.

    ok I'll check it today and see what it reads. so after you replaced the MAF sensor, did it go back to full strength?
