    Cruise Control Flashing

    My check engine light came on the other day and my cruise control doesnt work. The light in my dash blinks on and off constantly. Im just curiuos if that is something an STI does when the check engine comes on or its something weird?

    My car was having the exact same problem last night (I am assuming you mean that the Cruise Control light is blinking). I took it to the dealership so they could look up the code. Turns out the code was for the 'Throttle Position Circuit Range' <-- (Out of range they meant instead?, just reading word-to-word from the service paperwork), not quite sure what that equates to, but all that was required for resolving this was clearing the code and checking the wiring/connectors. It was free so I can't complain.

    While I haven't tried the following (do at your own risk), people have cleared codes before by resetting the ECU or by using an AccessPort. You may just want to get it checked out just to be safe.
