    02 wrx flashing check engine light

    I just bought this Subie it has 128000 and I can figure exact what's going on with and hoping someone May have had the same problem. Ok so I have this very loud ticking noise on the driver side that will come and go, and as far as I can tell so far it's not affected by anything (load tempature rpm) and now twice when going up a hill before I down shift the check engine light will come on and start blinking until I left off the gas or until I down shift.

    Any advise?
    Thanks edman

    Hi. Welcome.

    The first thing you'll want to do is get the code read and report back here with the specific code. It can be read by any of your local auto parts store or if you have an obdII scanner

    I have a Cobb tuner, and checked there wasn't any code history.

    Are the test connectors correctly disconnected?

    The test connectors should not be connected. If they were connected (usually an owner sees two connectors under the dash, thinks "oops, I need to connect these!") then the check engine light will flash.

    If you've not messed with connectors under the dash, ignore the question and continue trying to find an error code.
