The Function of the Check Engine Light

The engine control unit (or ECU) in your Subaru is a powerful computer that uses input from a variety of sensors to make sure that your SUBARU BOXER® engine works powerfully and efficiently. It makes adjustments based on what the sensors tell it; however, if a sensor stops working or sends a reading that indicates a problem, the Check Engine Light will turn on. This is your vehicle's way of telling you that something needs attention.

Reasons Your Check Engine Light Is On

One of the trickier things about the Check Engine Light is that there are so many potential issues that could cause it to turn on. The issues that we've listed below are some of the most common reasons we've seen for the Check Engine Light illuminating, but there are other possible causes, as well. Most of these issues will cause a decrease in fuel efficiency or performance, but they are generally not emergencies. However, if the Check Engine Light is flashing, you should pull over and turn off your Subaru as soon as you can.
