Blinking Cruise light & CEL on
I have a 06 Forester w/ 70k and last night shortly after setting my cruise control on a country road at 55mph, cruise shut off on it's own and light started blinking. Then CEL came on. Engine ran fine. After arriving back at the house, I checked all connections to no avail. I then unhooked battery and let sit until AM. Also checked gas cap for at least 6 clicks in closure.
This morning I re-connected battery and started car which took several turns to light although once started, it ran fine with no lights whatsoever. Took a drive up to dealer to test drive a new Legacy my wife's been considering and ran about 40 miles of errands. Still no lights. Stopped for dinner and shortly after leaving, the lights came on although cruise was not being used at the time.
any suggestions before going to the dealer??
