Dear customer, do the garages perform a diagnostic lokking for erro codes?Also, in addition to the lights, do you have any mechanical fault?Thanks
Dear customer, i understand your inquiry. Let me explain why the cruise mode does not work because of the light on the dashboard:
All your forester is being monitored through sensors that send signals to the main computer, when one of the sensors detects an erroneous signal or outside its normal operating range the computer receives this signal and warns you through the light of the engine on the dashboard, this causes the vehicle to protect itself by disabling certain vehicle systems as the cruise control system.
Now, the only way to solve this is by resetting the error code that the indicator is generating on the dashboard, I observed that the vehicle has carried certain distributors but they are not authorized by Subaru. What happens is that these distributors do not have adequate diagnostic equipment for entering the manufacturer-specific error codes, which means that these diagnostic devices cannot turn off these indicator lights, if the error codes cannot know exactly what the indicator is causing on the board and therefore know Exactly what prohibits the operation of the cruise control.
I hope you can understand my answer, it is very necessary to use a Subaru diagnostic equipment to be able to erase that error code.
