Subaru Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I have been a professional master mechanic for over 35 years and am happy to help you with this.
That light will come on when a sensor has detected an "out of range" signal from one of the MANY sensors on the car. It has nothing to do with the oil or over heating and if its running ok then its probably just an emissions control sensor and i wouldnt be too worried about driving it home.
When the light comes on it stores a diagnostic code in the computer that the dealer or any repair shop can retrieve and find the problem. Like i said, if its running ok, i would just continue home and have it looked at after you get home.
My goal is that you are satisfied with my answer(s). I strive for a 5 star positive rating. It's the only way i get credit. You can still ask me questions for free after the rating.
With those many indicators coming on, you can stop by an autozone, etc...parts store before you leave and they can pull the codes that are stored in computer when that light comes on. They can tell you what the codes mean. They will also check your charging system like the alternator for free because it may be a fault in the alternator for the electrical causing the lights to indicate.
