    2013 wrx cel

    Hey guys, two weeks ago I went stage one using tp.. I data logged and sent them to Erik and he said everything looked good. But now today I was driving on base at 25 and
    My cel came on also my traction light came
    On and my cruise light was blinking on and off. If anyone has any advice please advise.

    Plug in your AP and read the code it is throwing(No AP? Drive to Autozone and they will pull the code for free). As far as the Traction and Cruise light behavior, that is normal when a CEL is thrown.

    i do not use an ap, i went the open source route. It was from an o2 sensor, but i just recently ran stp fuel injector cleaner through my gas so im assuming its just giving a bad reading from the mixture of gas and the injector cleaner.

    Update, the cel for the o2 sensor has come on and a few times now.. It comes on when starting the car here and there and when just driving through town... It was off for a week and just came back on when i started it today, it is off again.. The car is tuned to stage 1 tp, i sent all the logs to eric and they checked out good.. So im not sure what to do at this point.

    Have you tried cleaning or replacing the 02 sensor? Also, have you checked to see what codes it is throwing the last few times the CEL came on?

    On a final note, don't mind the Traction control light being on and the Cruise control blinking. This is 100% normal. When the CEL comes one the computer is set to automatically disable the cruise control and the traction control until the codes are cleared or the problem is fixed.

    The code is po141 if thats what you're asking..And i havent tried cleaning it, going to today.. Called my dealership and the guy at services told me its probably a waist of my time for me to drive up there. Also he said to get a cobb ap and flash stage 1 because they cannot tell when the car has beenflashed by a cobb ap.. I used opensource for my stage 1, but just thought it was strange that they cannot see the tune when using a cobb ap.

    This is a highly debated topic. And I have NEVER seen a definite answer.
