    lights on the dash need help asap

    so my girls 2011 Subaru impreza 2.5 has the check engine light anti skid light and cruise control flashing all at once. the only thing I can possibly think of is it needs an oil change but she is barely over and that wouldn't make sense at all so im lost at why they would all be on at once. I had a car once that would do this not all those lights but the check engine light would come on. so that's the only thing I can come up with ha but doesn't make sense to me. any suggestions why???

    Get the code read. That will help you narrow it down.

    The vdc and cruise light always come on with any CEL just FYI. Check to make sure her gas cap is tight, you never know, we see that one all the time.

    Do either off you have a Cobb AP? If not do any of your friends have one? I use it to check and reset codes on my friends cars, the AP is married to my car. But the code reading and will work on other peoples cars.
    It would at least give you an idea.

    I interpreted an impreza 2.5 as a non-turbo subaru. But maybe I interpreted incorrectly

    Regardless. Interested to hear the results.

    Sorry OP. If this turns out to be anything serious we are going to feel like asses. Nothing wrong with your girl driving a regular Impreza. Dez wouldn't have one, but it would suit my wife fine.

    That's true though...if it is turbo it very well could have over boosted. I hate that about mine
