    check engine and other lights on :(

    2009 impreza wrx... about 2 months old with 4500 miles on the clock.. manual transmission

    washed the car monday night
    car was working fine prior

    a couple hours after the car wash, tried to start the engine.. and numerous lights came on

    *check engine
    *traction control not working
    *cruise control (blinking/flashing)
    *ABS
    *brake assist (for hills)

    car sat overnight, next morning same issue. drove it around for a while... same issue this morning.

    soo .. what does this mean? what's wrong with my baby?!

    I seriously doubt washing your car caused anything (unless you hosed down the engine..lol)

    So I will state the obvious and say "Trip to Dealer" and "Warranty-issue"

    that's what i did..

    and they said one of the wheel speed senors has died. the guy said this sensor is used with ABS and traction control and the rest .. that's why all the lights lit up...

    is this a common problem?
