  2. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Is there any way to be able to use the cruise control when CEL is on and cruise control is flashing? For medical reasons I really need the use of the cruise control until I get the P0031 problem corrected. If anyone has any helpful advice, I would appreciate it. Link to related thread...

    Forester Sport would not shift from 6th to 7th while using cruise control this weekend. Can't say this is a common occurrence and will continue to monitor while in use on the highway. A temporary fix is: use the paddle shifter to shift up. I am curious if anyone has come across this issue and...

    Hello everyone. I am in a bit of a predicament. I recently purchased a JDM 2005 Subaru Forester (manual) and I absolutely love it. However, it does not have cruise control. After doing tons of digging and making what has felt like 100 phone calls, it seems I may have reached a dead end...

    I have an '02 Forester L automatic and when I press the cruise control button nothing happens, no dash light or button light. Maybe I'm not using the correct procedure. I checked the button on the brake pedal and it looks fine and the secondary throttle cable is connected. Any ideas?

As previously stated: Love mostly everything about my new Forester except some characteristics with the adaptive cruise control (ACC)... Picture this: Cruise set at 55mph in the center lane.
