P2096 SUBARU -CEL ON, CRUISE LIGHT BLINKING

SOLID CHECK ENGINE ON WITH A BLINKING CRUISE CONTROL LIGHT

Vehicle: 2005,SUBARU,OUTBACK,4CYL
asked Sep 24, 2012 by anonymous

1 Answer

It is normal for the cruise control to flash when the check engine light comes on. This is a failsafe built into the system since they went with the electronic throttle.

The code is for a lean condition.This normally is a problem with the front A/F sensor reading wrong and causing the fuel trim to be wrong. Usualy replacement of the front A/F sensor is required to resolve the problem, however checking for intake manifold leaks is also a good idea as it can cause the code.
