Abs light on-cruise light flashing-diagnostic tool says

Abs light on-cruise light...

Abs light on-cruise light flashing-diagnostic tool says speed sensor, but not having any speedometer issues like some people are having on forum-thinking of testing wheel sensors and all bearings are tight

Mechanic's Assistant: While using the cruise control can you accelerate or decelerate? Have you checked the fuses?

Well cruise control only stays on some times and was like that on last owner-but what I have found is that abs light comes on as well as check engine with cruise light flashing for this problem is common

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Subaru?

2005 outback wagon

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Outback yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes myself-checked for broken wires on abs sensors as well as pull them out to check for being broken or cover with debris-checked connections all the way to firewall on car as well as checked wheel bearings

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Well I did search for a speed sensor on transmission but could not see it
